The Emoji Movie Gets 5 New Character Posters



The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.

Johnny Depp remains trash, asks Amber for $$$




Last week, Amber Heard filed court documents asking the court to ensure Johnny Depp pays his promised divorce settlements to charity, as he has missed deadlines to do so and she feels he's stalling. Also hasn't shipped her things from his island or settled his debts from the marriage (which apparently include stylist fees OP thinks he should get a refund on because YIKES @ his aesthetic).

Johnny hit back by filing for $100,000 claiming that Amber is milking the attention for her own fame and shouldn't be allowed to talk about her domestic abuse as it hurts him - in response to the video she did for #girlgaze because domestic abuse victims should think about their abusers and their reputations before sharing their stories!!!

Artists Taking a Break in 2017



  • Adele: Another baby may take Adele from the spotlight. She told her fans she was "off to have a baby" in late November, but she plans to wait to the conclusion of her tour.

  • Demi Lovato: The recent Grammy nominee didn't seem too happy with the trajectory of her career. She tweeted in early October:


  • Ellie Goulding: She doesn't know when she will release her new album, but she's taking a break to focus on charity work. She's been working constantly for 7 years, apparently (I only heard of her last year with that 50 Shades song)

  • Taylor Swift: After a whirlwind of success from her fifth studio album 1989 and the highly successful tour (she was the highest paid musician of 2016), Swift claims she needs a break from the pressure of new music. However, she states she will still write songs in her downtime, and her hiatus could vanish just like that if her musical talents come through. This may already be the case as she has recently released a song with Zayn for 50 Shades Darker and she and Drake are in the studio together.

Ben Barnes eventually got the part.

Tegan and Sara launch LGBTQ foundation for women and girls


The duo launched the 'Tegan and Sara Foundation' to support fighting for economic justice, health, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.

The sisters who are openly gay wanted to repay the community that has supported them for their entire career.

From their website:
"Since the beginning of our career, our LGBTQ fans have supported us in innumerable ways. Our journey navigating sexism and homophobia in the music industry has always been interwoven with the stories you share with us. Your personal histories of injustice and discrimination at home, school, work, and church have inspired us to use our public status to speak out about the struggles of the LGBTQ community. "
(...)
"LGBTQ women are experiencing disproportionately high levels of poverty, health issues and inequality. LGBTQ women of color, especially transgender women often experience these issues even more severely due to racism and transphobia. Today, given the state of politics in the United States, we must continue to unite and fight for our rights and against all forms of oppression."


The Foundation also wants to increase visibility of LGTBQ women to reduce the stigma around the community, also pointing out the lack of representation of LGBTQ women in pop culture.

2016’s biggest films that passed the Bechdel Test


To pass the Bechdel test the bar is set really low: the film needs at least two female characters (with a name) who talk to each other about something other than men.

The list of 2016 films includes the highest-grossing ones (10) as well as 10 of the most buzzed about films (lists at the source). Out of those, 11 pass the test: Finding Dory, Civil War, Zooptopia, Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Fantastic Beasts, Ghostbusters, Moana, Rogue One, X-Men Apocalypse, and Bad Moms.

In 13 of these films, the women portrayed are either independent women who rely on their own strength and intelligence to achieve their goals, and their well-being doesn't depend on being saved by a man.

Only 7 movies (Suicide Squad, Ghostbusters, Moana, Moonlight, Rogue One, Civil War, and Apocalypse) had women of color with speaking roles.

In all of 20 films, women were straight and cis, meaning no LGBT representation.

Cristiano Ronaldo makes donation, tells Syrian children: Don't lose hope

People butthurt that Octavia Spencer is playing God in 'The Shack'

If you haven't heard of The Shack I can't really hold it against you. The film is an adaptation of a 2007 Canadian Christian novel of the same name and it's about a guy whose daughter is kidnapped and probably murdered and then a few years later God sends him a note inviting him to the shack where she might have been killed in for the weekend. If that doesn't sound bad enough Sam Worthington is the lead. Basically the only redeeming factor in this why isn't this on Lifetime movie is that Octavia Spencer is playing God... and of course people are up in arms about it.

Some church leaders have spoken out against the movie says that Spencer's portrayal is a "pretentious caricature of God as a heavy set, cushy, non-judgmental, African American woman called ‘Papa’ — who resembles the New Agey Oprah Winfrey far more than the one true God".

They also have a problem with Sumire Matsubara portraying the Holy Spirit, stating that the character has a Hindu name and that she is too frail for the role.

They claim that the film "lends itself to a dangerous and false image of God and idolatry" and are calling for religious people not to see it. The Shack opens up against both Logan and the sequel to Trainspotting so a lot of people probably won't be seeing it regardless.

Ellen Pompeo Responds to Criticism For Using Brown-Skinned Emojis


The tweet in question:


  • Pompeo said the outrage was crazy and acknowledged that she took the focus off the actual topic.

  • With her husband being black and the biracial children they share, Pompeo has raised her voice against racial discrimination. "You do realize...being married to a black man and having black children can make you a target from racist white people right? That's a thing."

  • She apologized to anyone she may have offended.

I think the brown-skinned emojis were unnecessary but Pompeo certainly meant well.
