US Box-Office: Superhero Movies Report Card

Every year since The Avengers broke all the records, a dozen click-bait articles announcing the onset of Superhero Movie Fatigue™ show up on trade websites.
Is 2016 the year audience enthusiasm for caped crusaders finally begins to vane? Let's take a look at how the offerings from Marvel, DC, and Fox have performed so far.

DEADPOOL

Domestic: $363 million (#2)

Worldwide: $780 million (#5)

Deadpool is the most impressive sucess story of the year. The Merc with a Mouth™ flew by every box-office predictions to become the second most popular SHM of the year. A truly impressive feat for a R-Rated movie starring a little known character. And with a modest $58 million production budget, Deadpool is guaranteed to be one of the most (if not the most) profitable movie of the year.

🦄Tom Hiddleston might be just what T*ylor is looking for ! 🦄




About his ideal woman:

"I like strong women. My mother and sisters are very strong women, immensely independent and very capable and that's what I feel comfortable with, my mother places a huge importance on decency and kindness and always has—and the older I get the more I realize how rare that is."

Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock has split from Jordan Kiffin after 3 years



  • Just like I reported last week, Leigh-Anne and Jordan have ended their relationship after 3 years.

  • They had been having troubles for a while, so they finally decided to end things.

  • They grew apart because Leigh has been on tour for months and apparently Jordan moved to LA, or at least he seems to be spending a lot of time there lately.

Should-Be Emmy Nominee Constance Wu Interview






-Great interview, worth the full read.

-Interviewer brings up her earlier blackface comments, Constance clarifies that she wasn't trying to compare struggles, was just using blackface as an example term because a lot of the general public doesn't know what the term yellowface even means.

-Thinks there should be Asian-American superheros, doesn't want to be one herself.

-Addresses her real age/ageism. (She's 34)

-Regarding other Asian actors: How in the past she wanted to be the exception to the rule regarding Asian-American actors, and would be more competitive with other Asian-American actors as opposed to just other actors. Has changed her mind-set now, in that if she were to not get a role, would want the role to go to another Asian person, and generally wants for there to be more famous Asian-American actors.

Anton Yelchin owned recalled Jeep + authorities release cause of death



- The car that killed Anton Yelchin yesterday was a 2015 Grand Cherokee, which had been voluntarily recalled by Jeep in April 2016.
- The car's gear shift makes it easy for drivers to mistakenly keep the car in gear when they think it's in park.
- "By April 12, 2016, Fiat Chrysler had identified 212 crashes, 308 claims of property damage, and 41 injuries related to the issue."
- Yelchin's cause of death has been revealed as "blunt traumatic asphyxia."

Wait, what? Tom DeLonge Channeling his Inner Mulder, quits Blink-182 to focus on the threat of UFOs


  • After several delays and problems with the 7th album, the other two band members, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker dropped DeLonge from the band and replaced him with Alkaline Trio lead vocalist Matt Skiba but no one knew what the hell happened... until now:

  • “Well it’s not so much about Blink,” he said. “It’s about what I’m doing with my life now. When you’re an individual like me, dealing with something that’s a national security issue, and you’re being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you’ve been passionate about your whole life—something that has the opportunity to change the world over time—being a small part of that is enormously important for my life path,” he explained. That “national security issue” he’s on about? UFOs, to be precise.

  • He launched a franchise titled Sekret Machines, which will look into “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.” The franchise will include a number of fiction and nonfiction books, alongside new music from his band Angels & Airwaves.

Game of Thrones post: "Battle of the Bastards" director interview





EW talked to your new fav Miguel Sapochnik to talk about Game of Thrones best episode to date.

tl;dr rundown:
-- Looked at every pitch field battle filmed for reference. Biggest influence was Kurosawa's Ran as well as the Battle of Cannae in 216 BC.
-- Felt the pressure to make this episode bigger and better after the reception to "Hardhome."
-- Estimated it would take him 28 days to film the episode. Was initially given 12 by the producers. After the script came in it jumped to 42, then ended at 25.
-- BOB has 500 extras, 160 tons of gravel, 70 horses and riders, 65 stuntmen/women, 7 principal actors, 4 camera crews, and close to 600 crew members.
--[Spoiler (click to open)]Jon almost being buried alive by the stampedewas off script. The constant rain made it impossible to do what they had planned. Miguel suggested that scene as an alternative and was given the go-ahead to film it.
-- Meereen scenes were a preview of whats to come later.
-- The finale is equally as epic, but for different reasons.
-- Miguel also talked to EW about the final scene in a separate interview which you can read here

CBS - Person of Interest Series Finale Trailer 5x13 'Return 0' + Michael Emerson interview



WARNING - LOTS of spoilery scenes in this extended promo.




- Regarding THAT death : I learned this on “Lost”: It’s always a good idea that there are no guarantees about longevity for a character. But, it’s also fun — and we learned this on “Lost,” too — that once the character is killed, it doesn’t mean they are gone.
- On the show evolving from a procedural to a more compelling serialized series : Sure, it’s going to be a little tough for someone to tune into Episode 320 and know what’s going on, but, so be it. Viewer habits are changing. “Lost” had a lot to do with that. “Lost” was the kind of show that demanded that week-to-week and season-to-season loyalty — and it paid people back for their attention.

---

Didn't see a post regarding the series finale! Feel free to discuss last week's penultimate ep =) But yeah, after finding out Penny Dreadful is over and then losing this show tomorrow...I don't think I'm ready to let go.

The series finale, Return 0, airs tomorrow night on CBS @10 ET/PT

Alyssa Milano wants a WHO'S THE BOSS reunion! She told SiriusXM's Jenny Hutt she's ready to go!

Alyssa said, “I think we’re all open to it. We have a lot of pride for what we did then because it was kinda then a cutting edge show. It was a single mother who had her own company, was the president of her own advertising agency, she hired a male nanny. I mean those were things that all didn’t happen in the eighties. I mean so it would have to be something super special I think. And it would probably be, I don’t think we’d do a full season not like “Fuller House” thing, but we’d do an episode I think.”

Roosterteeth premieres first episode of Day 5



  • Day 5 is "is the first dramatic series from Rooster Teeth Productions, set in the immediate aftermath of a fatal sleep epidemic. After a fortuitous drug bender saves his life, addict Jake (Jesse C. Boyd) ventures out into the quiet streets… unaware that most of the world already died in their beds. Now, battling sleepless fatigue and encroaching delirium, Jake teams with a scrappy teenager (Walker Satterwhite), overnight doctor (Stephanie Drapeau) and red-eye pilot (Davi Jay) to search for answers… and just maybe find a way to sleep again. Set in a world of insomniacs, late-shift workers and roving psychotics, Day 5 presents a unique vision of the apocalypse that fuses serial drama and thriller around a human story of survival and redemption.

  • The first episode is on youtube and is age-gated.

  • The rest of the six part series is on their website but you have to be a sponsor to watch the rest of it.

  • It will release weekly on Sundays so the best way to watch all of it is wait 5-6 more weeks and then either become a sponsor and watch it all or get a free trial for 1 month here. (also watch AH's Theater Mode since it's hilarious)

Sky Ferreira Responds to Sexist Article, Addresses Terry Richardson Defense Allegations



L.A. Weekly recently posted a controversial article entitled "Sky Ferreira's Sex Appeal Is What Pop Music Needs Right Now" (which they have since apologized for). Sky took to Twitter to clarify the situation and defend herself.

She also addressed allegations that she's been defending known perv photographer Terry Richardson, whom she has previously worked with.

Choice quotes from the original article:
  • "When Ferreira dropped her debut, Night Time, My Time, three years ago, the bare-breasted album cover nearly broke the internet. Misogynists claimed it was a desperate attempt to sell records; feminists saw it as the calculated move of a defiant young woman. A third unnamed group that included me couldn't help but reminisce about Madonna's defiantly atomic boobs — the two knockers that altered the course of human history."
  • "She's too nasty to be anyone's schoolgirl fantasy; she looks like an unvarnished Madonna styled by Maripol, with the vaguely mystical presence of Nico and the faux-punkness of a Sex Pistols groupie. In other words, Sky Ferreira is the most deliberately pimped-out example of a modern pop star."
  • "But here's what I think pisses off people the most: that Ferreira, like any great pop star, is profiting off her fresh-faced beauty. But there's nothing tasteless about this. Why can't we see her sex appeal as talent as opposed to privilege? Ferreira's sex appeal, like any woman's, isn't entirely a gift from God."

    Sky responded:
