Christians beat gays (at the box office)



Despite all the billboards, inspirational coming out stories involving the cast, and an avalanche of posts about it on ONTD, "Love, Simon", it's taking a bible-thumping at the box office at the praying hands of another low budget, non-tentpole release that's also making its debut this weekend: the Christian film "I Can Only Imagine". Despite being released in 800 less theaters than "Simon", "Imagine" is set to make at least 2 million more than the gay romantic comedy this weekend, congregating to an estimated $14 million+ over the weekend!

So what's all the holy fuss about? "I Can Only Imagine" is about the immaculate conception of the similarly titled 2003 hit song by Christian rock band MercyMe. The lead vocalist of the band, Bart Millard, wrote the song about his father, who had recently passed away at that point.

And right now, Millard may very well be gloating about his movie's triumph over the sodomites: He once felt the need to clarify in an interview, that despite saying something nice about Ellen DeGeneres once, he still firmly believes that gays are going to hell unless they repent.

But there's still hope for the sodomites, at least at the box office. "Love, Simon" achieved a rare A+ cinemascore, which bodes extremely well for its long term prospects. And next week, as we get closer to Easter, will see the release of a couple of other Christian films, "
God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness" and "Paul, Apostle of Christ", which will be splitting the attention and wallets of evangelicals. Meanwhile, "Simon" will continue enjoying having its own niche of being the first mainstream gay rom-com, with no other gay-themed movie in wide release. After all, to quote Sartre, hell is other people.

Sources: Variety's article, Millard interview

To make it clear: "Love, Simon" is doing fine at the box office, it's just that its "low/mid budget breakout hit of the week" tiara got snatched by Jesus, who knows a thing or two about wearing crowns! Although, his came with thorns. Welp, fashion is suffering.

New film 'Martyr' explores masculinity, homoeroticism and Islam



The movie is set in Beirut and centers around a group of men coming to term's with their friend's drowning. His funeral becomes a "a heartfelt farewell not only to their beloved friend, but to the beauty and sensuality of life, youth, friendship, and love". In Islamic tradition drowning is a form of martyrdom (hence the title). The film has been making waves at SXSW while it was also nominated for the Queer Lion award at last year's Venice Film Festival.

Prettiest Boyband #PRETTYMUCH Hits 5 Million Views with 'Teacher'


Despite their their fan favorite Open Arms or even their debut Would You Mind, sleeper success PRETTYMUCH has hit 5 million views with their second single 'Teacher', which is their most viewed video to date. Is this the single that their label should have pushed? Industry experts will never know.

People are also wondering why for an act with such mainstream potential, they are no where to be seen in the main charts. I believe their method of pumping out singles every month is still an attempt to gain momentum as a band. All of known songs, besides 1, have been released. Don't know if we're still expecting an EP or full album later in the year.

SnapChat loses nearly $1 billion after Rihanna calls them out and tells them to keep their app-oligy


Earlier this week, SnapChat removed an offensive ad which asked users whether they'd “rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown?”

Rihanna then took to Instagram’s Stories feature which rivals SnapChat to call them out. In it she says, “Now SNAPCHAT I know you know already know you ain't my fav app out there! But I'm just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I'd love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain't that dumb! You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!! This isn't about my personal feelings, cause I don't have much of them...but all the women, children, and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven't made it out yet...You let us down! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away.

Following Rihanna’s statement, SnapChat responded by apologizing again: “This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service. We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again.”

But Too Little, Too Late: SnapChat stocks plunged by 4 percent on Thursday, according to The Wall Street Journal, losing Snap Inc. nearly a billion dollars ($800 million to be exact) this week due to Rihanna's criticism of the app and the backlash the ad has gotten.
