-It’s been a very long time since a red carpet outfit made me gasp outloud, but Zendaya’s just did.
-The early reactions to her film Dune seem very mixed. It’s getting lots of praise for its spectacle, but some say it seems too focused on setting up a sequel.
-Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart wore pajamas to her premiere. I don’t hate this but Nicole made a good point — elastic waistbands are never ok on a red carpet.
-Stewart’s movie is also getting mixed reviews, though her performance is already getting Oscar buzz.
-I was bracing for a Friday afternoon before the long weekend news dump, but so far it’s just that Kaley Cuoco and her husband have split.
-I’ve only seen this reported by the Daily Mail so far but rumours have it that Miles Teller tested positive for covid after refusing to get the vaccine, shutting down production of The Godfather spinoff series The Offer. I wonder if he’ll be un-hirable after this? Of course, he already showed his true colours in 2015 when he gave such a terrible interview to Esquire that his costars had to do damage control, and that didn’t seem to matter.
-Why did he have to sample R Kelly and give him a writing credit? WHY?
–Paula Cole’s “I Don’t Want to Wait” has been restored on the opening credits of Dawson’s Creek on Netflix. Too bad; I’m sure Jann Arden was enjoying the royalty checks.
–Richard E. Grant is mourning the death of his wife, Joan Washington. She was 71.
-That James Corden-led Cinderella flash mob that disrupted traffic and annoyed everyone aired last night.
-Nick Mohammed talks about what’s happening with Nate this season on Ted Lasso.
-I watched the first episode of Only Murders in the Building with Steve Martin, Selena Gomez and Martin Short, and was surprisingly charmed.
–Kate Walsh is returning to Grey’s Anatomy for a multi-episode arc when the show returns for its 18th season.
-Rick And Morty casts Christopher Lloyd as Rick in a live-action segment. Who else could play him?
-There’s lots of talk about Joe Rogan actually being vaxxed and not saying so. He’s been playing shows in NYC and he’s been doing events for UFC, so wouldn’t he have to be? I just assume all rich people are.
–Prince Harry is calling for increased vaccine education and access, saying “where you’re born should not affect your ability to survive.”
-I’m worried about the pressure being put on Shang-Chi as theatres’ potential pandemic saviour. It’s the first Marvel movie to premiere exclusively in theatres in more than 2 years.
-The Moonfall trailer pits Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson against the moon.
