Eminem gave an interview, in which he talked about speaking out about public opinions.
He says people need to look into themselves in order to decide whether or not they should say it out loud publicly. In addition, he says it's not really anyone's responsibility to be talking about politics.
Do you think celebrities have a responsibility to talk about political views ?

This can also be a general post about the Kennedys.
-- Irish actor Ferdia Shaw (casting page here) was chosen as Artemis Fowl out of 1200 kids
-- playing Holly Short will apparently be a child(???), actress Lara McDonnell
-- They're joined by Judi Dench, who will play Commander Root (a male in the books originally); Josh Gad as nasty-as-fuck dwarf Mulch Diggums; and 'Game of Thrones' Nonso Anozie will play Butler
The first 'Artemis Fowl' movie will be out in August 2019.
- The Last Jedi is, officially the most divisive Star Wars film to date. Yes, even counting the prequels.
- Butthurt fans are campaigning to have The Last Jedi removed from the Star Wars canon. Personally I see no point to it, because then we wouldn't have Leia and Amilyn being BAMF's. Also...they already ruined things by removing The Star Wars Holiday Special from canon, so...why?
- "Star Wars has long been a story about two things, the Jedi and Luke Skywalker," Walsh wrote. "After over 260 novels where we could follow the adventures of that great hero you, the Walt Disney Company decided to strike all of that from the official canon and wiped out three decades of lore. We were excited to see Episode VII to see how our heroes lives turned out since you took away what we knew. We saw the death of Han Solo, we saw less than a minute of Luke Skywalker."

'Get Out' will receive the Stanley Kramer Award, which honors "a production, producer or other individuals whose achievement or contribution illuminates and raises public awareness of important social issues," at January 20th's Producers Guild of America Awards.
The accolade will go to the producers of the movie, including Jordan Peele, Jason Blum, Sean McKittrick, and Edward H. Hamm Jr.
The PGA nominees have yet to be announced, and those that get nods are almost always those that get Oscar Best Picture nominations. Others receiving special awards at the PGAs include Ava DuVernay (Visionary Award), Ryan Murphy (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television), Charles Roven (David. O. Selznick Achievement Award), and Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley (Milestone Award).
But it begs the question – where are our Christmas movies? When will we start getting our own trashy Hallmark gay romcoms? When will Netflix make "A Christmas Princess"? How many years do we gottta wait for trash people to die off and for capitalism to appeal to our demographics as the ice caps melt?
Out of morbid curiousity, I decided to venture out and bring the best (or honestly, least terrible) of them back to you. I had three basic requirements:
- If it isn't about Christmas, it has to be at least set around the time period or in the month of December.
- It doesn't have to be centrally gay, but it has to have at least one explicitly gay character.
- They have to physically speak.

Prompt ONTD: If you could make any LGBT Christmas film, what would it be?
Also: Did I miss anything? Any favorites or recommendations?
Part 2: TV and more, coming soon... (I promise it'll be much more diverse I had barely anything to work with here)

- talks about how James Cameron came up with the idea for the film (his original pitch was "R&J on a boat"), studio/executive resistance bc he wasn't exactly known for romance films & "had no business trying to tell a story about love", how it went massively over budget almost immediately, and Cameron's insane work ethic and v strict work environment
- mentions how so much attention was paid to historical accuracy (all the carpets in the movie were made by the same company that had created the original ones, real crystal replicas of the chandeliers were commissioned bc otherwise they wouldn't chime realistically, most props - from ashtrays to cutlery to teacups - were stamped with the White Star Line emblem, etc.)
- her interpretation of the movie is that Jack represents a world which can exist without collapsing in the absence of hierarchy, order and masculinity, and how for that precise reason he saved Rose not only from literal death but also from societal & self-imposed prison, and how she ended up discovering her own strength after his death
- mentions what she believes to be a common (and, if true, p interesting) theme in Cameron's films: "In The Terminator, Terminator 2, and Aliens, this idea seems to go hand in hand with getting rid of men — and Titanic follows this example. Even if men aren’t actively oppressing women, Cameron’s movies suggest, they still have a way of holding women back from doing what they need to. Even if all you want is to save John Connor, you’re still a product of Skynet. The best protection you can offer the world is to leave it."

this piece definitely puts the LONG in longread & this is in no way a complete summary, but it's totally worth reading imo. tho tbh this is mostly an excuse for a '20 years of Titanic' post, lol.
ONTD, do you remember Leomania & if so, were you also a victim? how many times have you watched Titanic? what are your fave scenes, if any?
EDIT : btw i think it's only fitting for me to mention that apparently Cameron had originally written Titanic with River Phoenix in mind for Jack's part.

- James Jude Courtney will perform Michael's stunts.
- The new film, set for October 19, 2018, will take place after the original, ignoring the sibling plot introduced in Halloween 2.
- According to the film's co-writer, Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down, Pineapple Express), they're changing the 1978 film's ending slightly. No further details given.
- As reported earlier, Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising her role as Laurie Strode. Judy Greer has been cast as her daughter and Andi Matichak will be playing Judy's daughter.
- Filming begins next month in South Carolina.
-There was not any impression that the characters were "knocking their boots off" so to speak.
-Rian Johnson in TLJ defies that through allegory.[Spoiler (click to open)]Morris states in his article,"It deals in blatant sexual imagery (think to, on Ahch-To, the eternally erect Force tree and mysterious gushing cavern that both call to Rey) and euphemism."
[Spoiler (click to open)]- Morris said,"For the first time ever, a Sith uses not just mind tricks and manipulation, but also sex appeal to seduce his Jedi prey."
-Morris said,"Leia’s gold bikini moment in Return of the Jedi doesn’t count; even if a grotesque space slug wasn’t constantly slobbering on Carrie Fisher in those scenes, director Richard Marquand’s camera is entirely passionless."
-Basically,the color red (signify passion/lust/sex) with both Kylo and Rey's scenes/color palette. Also Tumblr shippers #Reylo are exploding over this as we speak.

Playing [Shuri] was so refreshing. She’s strong, and she can kick butt. She’s intelligent, she loves Wakanda, and she loves creating technology to protect her people. But you see when she’s scared, when she’s frightened, when she’s afraid for her family. Even with some of the male characters [in the movie], you see moments when they are weak. Shuri was the sort of character I went home and studied to find out the reason she does things. — Letitia Wright
Ryan [Coogler] made a point of avoiding the expected female-rival narrative. In this genre, where spandex is involved, oftentimes the women are pitted against each other. In our story, there are so many different women holding their own space. Women may be in competition with each other, sure, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there’s an absence of love or respect. Shuri is the sister to the Black Panther and the leader of technological pursuits, and Nakia is someone who has a complicated history with the Black Panther and is a warrior in her own right. You see them work together, and you see a dynamic that is really encouraging. Making this film awakened me. I walked away from this experience feeling extremely supported, and I felt challenged. — Lupita Nyong'o

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney filed suit against Michigan State University, the United States Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics claiming the organizations tried to keep her from speaking out about the "depraved, repeated, and serial sexual abuse and molestations" she suffered as a teenager from team doctor Larry Nassar.
The gold medalist alleges she signed a non-disclosure agreement as part of a financial settlement to keep her from speaking out about Nassar.
Sources familiar with the deals say Maroney received $1.25 million last winter.
"I’ve done many videos of the Metuchen Country Fair in New Jersey. The most memorable moment was when this little girl, Brittany Murphy, who came up to Ryk Schoonhiem in this Oct. 20th, 1990 clip and asked him “Would you like a children’s perspective?” She had so much life and energy that I told Ryk to hand the mic over to her. This video was taken before she became a famous Television star. Wouldn’t TMZ love to get their hands on this tape. Google her name and see for yourself how much of a name she made for herself. You’ll see her multiple times on the David Letterman Show. Same happy bubbly personality. May her soul rest in peace."—Carl K. Sylvester

- Says it is revenge for her film The Post which he sees as an attack on Trump (the film is a period piece about The Washington Post's decision to publish the Pentagon Papers)
