Black Sails: 405 Clips - Is the best ship getting resurrected?


The best ship being the Walrus, of course! Silverflint who? Dimplemas who? Blint who? Flintrus is where it's at!

Or at least I like to think Silver's talking about the Walrus in one of those new promo clips floating around. The only one to be found on a non-banned site is over on Inverse, featuring Eleanor & Mrs Hudson (aka the Handmaiden of Deceit aka Mrs Stephens) talking.

Meanwhile, Toby Stephens was asked by a fan on Twitter about That Thing that has caused the entire fandom to collectively lose its goddamn mind this past week. His reply is exactly what one might expect.

Does this mean John gets a new prosthetic, since we haven't seen this version before? Who's gonna make it? Is it Billy, to stay in his favour? Is he gonna have a shirtless scene sweatily forging the boot for LJS? Otoh the episode in the item description is listed as 307, which is correct for the peg leg, but not the boot. Thoughts?

(They're also auctioning off Flint's ninja outfit, lots of dresses, various stunt weapons, etc. A while ago they even sold Marcus Aurelius with the inscription!! OP was considering buying a set of Flint shirts bc they came with his rings. Too bad I'm broke.]

Daniel Kaluuya Speaks Out On Film's "Racist" Backlash + Joins the Cast of Steve McQueen's New Film



- Daniel Kaluuya was asked about the "racist" backlash the film is receiving and he had this to say, "I think it accelerates what's really in you. If you think this, if this offends you, why does this offend you? If that offends you and a Black kid getting shot by police doesn't, something's not real".
- Daniel spoke to W Magazine about how he's spent years auditioning for roles and was told by people in the industry that he wouldn't receive parts because he was black.
- Daniel doesn't think the film has a certain resonance to it now just because Cheeto Hitler is president. Racism has been around and shouldn't be considered timely.

Writer Hired to Pen Adaptation of R.L. Stine’s ‘Fear Street’



The Tracking Board is reporting that 20th Century Fox has tapped writer Kyle Killen (The Beaver) to handle the script for their upcoming movie adaptation of Fear Street. No word yet on which book(s) in the series might be up for consideration in the adaptation, but chances are the movie will be a bit more straight forward than the Goosebumps film.

As such, we shouldn’t expect Fear Street to play to the same kind of humorous crowd as Goosebumps. As the name implies, Fear Street was scarier than Stine’s more well-known series, and focused on more mature themes and situations. With so many books to choose from, Killen certainly has a lot of material to work with as he crafts his screenplay, and it’s certainly possible that he’ll simply craft an original story that features some of the familiar faces and places known to readers of the novels.

Jessica Henwick’s Colleen Wing Will "Inspect" Asian Stereotyping In Iron Fist




“For me, when they approached me about Colleen, I was a little bit like, huh, do I want to play an Asian woman who does martial arts who’s a love interest? Do I want to do those three things? Because I’ve always shied away from it. In fact, I’ve shied away from playing Asian characters. If you look back, I’m playing characters that have no relevance to my ethnicity.

“But I reached a stage last year where I said, ‘I want to start telling Asian stories. I want a young Asian girl to go, “Oh my god, that reminds me of my relationship with my mom.”’ So I had some concerns, and Jeph Loeb rang me and he said, ‘We’re going to take the stereotype, and we’re not going to avoid it – we’re going to inspect it.’

“For example, she’s a martial artist, she fights in fight cages, we’ve seen that before. What happens when you become addicted to that? What happens when you can only talk with your fists and you struggle to communicate on any other level and you’ve become addicted to fighting? So we’ve taken this stereotype and we’ve said, ‘OK, what is the actual realism in it?’ You know? Which was interesting to me.”

Oscar Gift Bags 2017

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

- all 25 acting and directing nominees are given distinctive assets gift bags
- last year each bag was estimated at being worth $232,000
- the academy sued them last year because they felt it implied the academy endorsed what the gifts were & constituted a trademark infringement
- they have since reached a settlement with distinctive assets agreeing to tone down the value of the gifts
- last year prizes included a year's worth of audi rentals, 15 day private tour of japan, all inclusive trip to israel, lifetime supply of lizora skincare products, fiera vibrator & a lot more
- trip to israel garnered some controversy with a #skipthetrip hashtag trending; no celeb who received it has taken advantage of the trip except jennifer lawrence who gifted it to her parents
- this year it's less extravagant: items include a 3 day stay at northern california ranch, weeklong stay at san diego spa, 10 sessions with trainer alexis seletzsky, cellulite massage mats, cpr kit, kegel tracker & more

Nicki Minaj comes for Trey Songz before Remy Ma

Trey Songz denied that he had sex with Nicki in an instagram video and then tweeted that he would very much like to be excluded from this narrative. Nicki said that she got him 6 plaques, so he should have defended her and denied that he had sex with her even though he already did. Trey told Nicki that she needs to be mad at Remy and used this as an opportunity to #promote himself.

'Get Out' wins Friday's box office with nearly $11M ... set to exceed estimate expectations


Several sources include The Wrap are reporting that Jordan Peele's directorial debut, Get Out has won the Friday box office after raking in $10.8 Million.

This number not only puts the film on track to exceed initial pre-weekend projections but it is expected to knock The LEGO Batman Movie out of the number one spot. While experts are projecting that the release of Logan next week means that it may not hold onto that spot long they are still impressed by the numbers that it has brought in.

Get Out has earned more than twice its budget in a single day in the domestic box office and it's pulling in amazing numbers overall especially considering that it's a horror movie with no real stars and it was released on Oscar Weekend (where most people tend to play catchup with nominee showcases).

This is great news for Jordan Peele who said he has four other social thrillers in the works that he would ideally like to make every other year starting in 2018.

Get Out currently holds a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes based off of 134 reviews from critics.

Casey Affleck slams Trump as unamerican despite a $5K donation from the Affleck/Middleton Project

Spirit Awards: Casey Affleck calls Trump's policies "Abhorrent" and "Un-American" despite the fact that he and his production company partner, John Powers Middleton gave Trump's post election transition $5K. Middleton has long been involved with republicans, helped fund Trumps campaign and donated to the transition under one of his other businesses as well. It is not known if Affleck approved or is aware that a donation was given in his name but if he's so adamantly against Trump one would think he would avoid having any ties to the president.

Transracial Icon and Activist Queen Rachel Dolezal Almost Homeless?

Despite scoring a publishing deal for her new book "In Full Color", Dolezal claims she is on the brink of homelessness and living on food stamps. She also insists that no wrongdoing was committed on her part and refuses to apologize. The "I Am African" queen states that she is about to be homeless because no one will hire her lying ass.

For those who don't or choose not to remember (I don't blame you), Dolezal was an American civil rights activist and former president of the Spokane chapter for the NAACP. In 2015, she resigned following allegations that she had lied about her racial identity and other aspects of her biography. After fabricating her life (coming soon to a Lifetime movie near you), her parents came out and said that she was, in fact, a pure as snow Caucasian woman. She continues to believe that she is a black woman.

ONTD, have you ever claimed to be a different race/ethnicity and refused to apologize once people called you out for being a damn fool?
