THR Calls Wonder Woman a “Gamble,” Twitter Claps Back

wonder-woman-patty-jenkins-gal-gadot

-This take is TRASH: the Hollywood Reporter’s cover story says Warner Bros is “gambling $150M” on Wonder Woman’s female director because her only prior big screen credit is the $8M Oscar-nominated, critically acclaimed Monster. Seriously? As Twitter was quick to point out, Hollywood handed the keys to the Jurassic franchise over to Colin Trevorow, who had only done the $750K Safety Not Guaranteed, which wasn’t nominated for shit and no one saw it. Or what about Josh Trank, who jumped from teeny tiny indie Chronicle to Fantastic Four? Same with Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Gareth Edwards, Jon Watts, Alan Taylor, David Yates, James Gunn, etc. Hollywood throws money at white men who barely have a YouTube channel all the time. But this is a gamble that requires hand-wringing? Nah, son.

-Meanwhile, This Wonder Woman featurette is 13 minutes of pure joy.

-Felicity reunion alert! Keri Russell and Scott Speedman appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live together and it made my heart grow three sizes. The part where he talks about how they dated and he was “such a disaster of a boyfriend”? Kill me.

-Oh god, did Robin Wright take Sean Penn back? Why????

– Jennifer Garner is on the cover of People and it confused everyone because it’s kind of a nothing article. It turns out she had no involvement in the story at all. She took to Facebook to say “This isn’t a tragedy by any measure, but it does affect me and my family and so, before my mom’s garden club lights up her phone, I wanted to set the record straight: I did not pose for this cover. I did not participate in or authorize this article. While we are here, for what it’s worth: I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete.” A celebrity calling out People like this? Yikes.

Arcade Fire is going full glam-era Bowie with their new track, which is impossible to link to because it keeps getting pulled from YouTube.

-NBC changed its mind and won’t move This Is Us to Thursday nights after all. Why mess with the only genuine hit of the year?

Kathy Griffin apologized for her Trump decapitation photo, saying “I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong.” CNN has fired her anyway.

Drake scored a huge victory in his sampling lawsuit with a fair use argument about “real music.”

-67 million of Katy Perry‘s followers may be fake.

-Vulture is asking the right questions in this piece wondering how the hell Johnny Depp keeps getting cast in movies.

Kathy Griffin did a Tyler Shields photo shoot that involved a bloody Trump head, and people were not impressed. Dumb people, but still.

Alicia Keys talks Trump, Trudeau, and really bad karaoke in the new issue of Chatelaine. She also makes a cute discovery about Montreal (“Poutine, is that the place to go?”)

Evan Rachel Wood‘s advice to Millie Bobby Brown involves licking a toilet.

-I linked to a story yesterday about Jessica Chastain‘s comments about female representation at Cannes, but now there’s video and it’s even more powerful. She sounds nervous but powers through.

Diane Kruger might have to get a crappy tattoo because she won at Cannes.

Robert Pattinson reveals he was almost fired from Twilight because of his on-set behaviour.

-Wonder Woman is at 97% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes! That’s the best score of any DC or Marvel film to date.

-I thought people were joking last night on Twitter when they were talking about Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher showing up on The Bachelorette but they really did.

Orlando Bloom is dating a Katy Perry look-alike, which isn’t weird at all.

Alanis Morissette‘s ‘Jagged Little Pill’ is being turned into a musical and I’m hesitantly excited.

-OHMYGOD, Scott Speedman went to Keri Russell’s star ceremony and I am getting Team Ben flashbacks!

-With Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Nick Offerman and Aubrey Plaza I feel like I should like The Little Hours trailer more than I actually do…

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney Call Off Engagement

-It’s a bad week for Hollywood’s longtime couples (especially the ones who’ve been plagued by blind items). Yesterday was Josh and Diane, and today it’s Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney who have called it quits.

Matt Damon and Julia Stiles responded to Lena Dunham’s critique of the Jason Bourne poster, politely telling her to PFO.

-Meanwhile, I really like this cover story on Matt Damon, mostly because they got other celebrities to talk about him instead of doing the usual profile thing. Tina Fey’s comment is the best. Clearly.

-Here’s a good look at what’s next for Taylor Swift, now that her “aw shucks, math sure is hard, y’all!” persona has been blown to bits.

-Even her ex-guitarist is coming after her on Twitter now.

-Meanwhile, a lawyer has weighed in on if Tay’s “character assassination” claim is legit.

-Ohhh…I really hope this photo means Scott Speedman is on Aisha‘s podcast soon. Even if it’s just him repeating the word “hey” for an hour.  No one heys like Speedman…

-Here’s a peek at Anna Kendrick’s book cover. This feels like a “Oh god, what do I do with my hands?!?” pose.

Chris Pine showed off his Jeff Bridges impression and proved he’s the king of inflatable flip cup on The Tonight Show. (Weird sidenote: I tweeted about Chris this morning and it went crazy with RTs. Y’all like him, huh?)

-I really, really like this article on why you should go see Ghostbusters right now (because it matters).

-Meanwhile, celebs came out to support Leslie Jones after her Twitter harassment.
