Based on the series of novels by Michael Connelly it will center around Mickey Haller, an idealist who runs his law practice out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car taking on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles.

“The Lincoln Lawyer” novel was adapted for the big screen in 2011 with Matthew McConaughey playing the lawyer in question. The film was a box office hit and also starred Marisa Tomei in the role of his ex-wife.

There is yet no word on who will be playing the criminal defense attorney in this new series or when it will air.

Author who tried to get a Black train worker fired sues her ex-publisher for $13.4 million



- Follow-up to this post
- Natasha Tynes got slammed on Twitter for contacting Washington DC Metro's Twitter to report that a Black female train worker ate on the train (which is against the DC metro policy), posting a picture of the employee and giving detailed info so DC Metro can find her in order to get her fired (she didn't get fired in the end btw)
- Tynes, who got a book deal for her first novel 'They Called Me Wyatt' (which is about a Jordanian woman that reincarnated as a White boy after being murdered but kept her consciousness), was criticized for endangering a fellow WOC's livelihood and ignoring the difficulties of working a 9-5 job
- The backlash was so big her publisher pulled her book deal and Tynes set her account on private
- Tynes since says she has received death threats following this and her loss of book deal gave her suicidal thoughts
- She accuses her ex-publisher, the "all-white" (her words) Rare Bird Lit, of breaching their contract with her and defaming her thus sueing them for $13.4 million

MIB producers Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes defend the rewrites on the summer megaflop




Recap: The Hollywood Reporter released an article detailing the problems behind the scenes on the Men In Black: International.

There were numerous script rewrites, infighting between Walter Parkes and F. Gary Gray, and Chris and Tessa hiring their own dialogue writers. F. Gary Gray almost walked away from the project but was convinced to stay. Most of the blame fell upon Walter Parkes trying to take over control over the film. And now Parkes and his wife, fellow MIB producer, Laurie MacDonald are speaking out.

Part of their statement:

Basically Parkes and MacDonald place the blame on the initial writers of the script, F. Gary Gray for hiring Les Twins as the villains, and the studio for approving the script.

The Hollywood Reporter states that they stand by their initial story, citing interviews with nine people who worked on MIB: International.

'Annabelle Comes Home' starts off early mid-week box office with $3.5M on Tuesday night




Warner Bros. has at least one hit on their hands this year with the horror 'Annabelle Comes Home', which made $3.5 million from Tuesday night previews, and is the only wide release this weekend. It's expected to make around $30 million throughout this week and into the weekend (on a $15M budget).

The only other kind-of big release this week is 'Yesterday', which debuts on Thursday night in the U.S./Canada and is expected to make $10M opening weekend (can't find a budget, but it did cost $10 million just to get the rights of The Beatles songs to be played in the movie).

Regardless of new releases, Disney's 'Toy Story 4' is expected to top the box office this weekend.

Karamo Brown and Billy Eichner defend Taylor Swift




Queer Eye's Karamo Brown talked to People about Taylor Swift and some of the backlash she's received over her music video for "You Need to Calm Down."

“We had these amazing conversations about her influence and her understanding the importance of helping people to see that they should open their minds. That’s a woman who is using her power for good, and I’m just proud to be her friend now... As far as I know, black trans women are still dying in high numbers. So, it’s not just convenient, like, ‘Oh, everything’s solved, so now I want to get on it.’ She’s helping our community at a time when things are still going on. We have an administration that is literally saying trans people cannot serve in the military. It’s not convenient for Taylor Swift to be coming forward. It’s needed, and I’m thankful.”

Actor and comedian Billy Eichner was also asked about his thoughts on Swift at Variety's Pride event. He joked about not being included in her music video before showing his support for the singer.

“You know I think overall we need all the allies we can get. I was really genuinely impressed by how vocal Taylor was during the midterm elections, telling her following to vote, coming out on behalf of Democrats even though she’s from the south and a deep red state. I really thought that was so important. She got so many people into the system who now will hopefully continue to be in the system and continue to be politically engaged.”

To prove himself worthy of the Top Dog role, Swifty secretly commandeers one of the sleds and delivers a package to a mysterious location. He stumbles upon a secret fortress where he comes face to face with Otto Von Walrus, a blubbery evil genius who walks around on mechanical legs and commands a loyal army of oddly polite puffin henchmen.

Now, Swifty has to enlist the help of his friends: PB, a concerned polar bear, Lemmy, a scatterbrained albatross, Bertha and Leopold, two conspiracy theorist otters and Jade, a worldly fox.

Anthony Mackie talks to Men's Health about his evolution to the next superhero star




*Anthony Mackie covers the new issue of Men's Health.

*Watched Endgame 4 times in the theater.

*Used to get confused for Don Cheadle and had to remind people Cheadle is "the other black guy" in the MCU, but after Endgame's ending people know who he is.

*Originally came onto Marvel's radar when he auditioned for the role of Mandarin in Iron Man 3, but didn't find out they wanted him for Falcon until about 2 months before The Winter Soldier went into production.

*Didn't find out he was going to inherit the shield as the next Captain America until Chris Evans told him during Endgame's production while they were hanging out at Evans' house watching football, although the decision to promote him after Evans vacated the role was made by TPTB three years prior.

*Had never even touched the shield before Evans handed it to him during the filming of the scene. "It's unbalanced. And heavy."

*Signed on for 10 Marvel films, but doesn't know how the Falcon and Winter Soldier show will play into that or if he'll be Falcon, or Cap, or a Fal-Cap hybrid in the show.

*His 10 year old son is excited that he'll be Captain America but just won't give him that acknowledgement. His son instead chose to rave about Thanos and Thor after attending the Endgame premiere with Mackie.

Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Hit In The Face With A Volleyball




During a recent trip to the beach in Malibu, Leonardo DiCaprio was seen playing volleyball with friends. It was when he went in to bump the ball as it went over the net, he missed and got hit right in the face with the volleyball and fell on the sand.

He was joined by Robin Thicke and his fiancée April Love Geary, who witnessed it firsthand. DiCaprio was then seen recovering quickly and getting up from the fall and playing as if nothing happened.

There’s no word on who ended up winning the game and if it affected DiCaprio’s confidence for the remainder of the match.

It’s also unknown if the volleyball that hit his face was in its 20’s or over 30.

Calvin Harris likes photo of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift reuniting as he gets ready for a new album

Even though Calvin Harris does not follow Katy Perry on Instagram, fans noticed that he liked one of her recent photos:



This has also intrigued Swifties because in 2016, Calvin called his ex Taylor Swift out on Twitter for trying to "bury Katy" with her single Bad Blood. He has also had his own beef with Katy after dropping out of one of her shows last-minute in 2017, and she called him out on Twitter for it.

Additionally, in 2016, Calvin accused Taylor of controlling the media in several Instagram comments after she dumped him via phone so she could frolick the beaches of Rhode Island with her new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston.

Calvin usually releases singles each summer that become huge hits, such as "Summer," "Feels," "This Is What You Came For," and "We Found Love." However, so far this summer, he has stayed quiet about new music. Katy and Taylor have just released their own singles, but his fans are bugging him to bring a "summer banger" and are sending him hashtags like #saveuscalvin.

Collapse )

Despite his silence, he has been announced as the headliner for this year's SunnyHill Festival, and in a new financial report by Sony, it's been discovered that Calvin has a project due June 30th, which could mean a new album will, in fact, be released soon. When fans asked if it will be called Funk Wav Bounces Vol. II, he replied:

Sienna Miller on her personal and professional growth and confirms men are trash




Sienna Miller is back working and is promoting upcoming projects "Loudest Voice" and her first lead role in the indie drama "American Woman" and opens up about her career and personal life. I've included excerpts here but the full read is available at source.

Looking back on her famous boyfriends and ex-boyfriends, for being the victim of an infamous paparazzi phone hack (and eventually the winner of a lawsuit), for refusing to extinguish her effervescent personality in public, for smoking.
“I did feel judged by people. Like, ‘Silly little girl, you asked for it,’” she says. “I felt paranoid and scared the entire time. At a certain point, my life was completely unmanageable.”

Would she do another girlfriend or wife role?
I don’t want to be someone’s wife, trying to embellish some role that’s really nothing. I won’t do that anymore. Foxcatcher changed a lot of things for me, though. I had more to do but not quite enough. But I was in an incredible successful and well-loved film. So yes, I’d do that again. I mean, if Paul Thomas Anderson called me and said, “You have one scene and you’re sitting in the background sipping tea,” I’d be like, “Yes.” [Laughs.]

Had she felt dictated by men in a professional sense?
Oh God, yeah. I was a woman in Hollywood! [Laughs.] I felt very out of control of a lot of decisions for most of my career — and very willing to accept that, which is the saddest part. How grateful I was just to be in the room. If I walked into a room with seven men, or actors, I’d feel inferior. And I still struggle with it.

Avengers actress Lexi Rabe and her mother appear on Good Morning America to discuss bullying




Follow up to this post.

In an interview with Good Morning America, Lexi Rabe and her mother described an encounter in which a fan told her parents to "train" the actress on how to "act in public".

Lexi told Good Morning America she was at a mall in Los Angeles when a fan approached her and got upset that they couldn't speak with the 7 year-old. The stranger started to chastise Lexi’s parents and criticized her on social media.

“So somebody recognizes me and I was just like, playing with my brother, and they said, ‘You need to train your girl how to…’” Lexi said, before her mom Jessica interjects with, “’Act in public.’” You expect me to be a robot? Because I’m not a robot. Because I’m not all fancy at all. I’m just a normal kid!”

Lexi's mom, Jessica, said that she hope's Lexi experience can become a "force for good":

“I don’t know why you need to get mad at us because we’re not available. You know, we’re normal people, we have busy lives like everybody else...I’m just trying to have her understand that the power that she has… She has a voice and it can be used for good. People pick on famous people and they don’t think that they’re real people.”

New Razor Campaign Promotes Models with Armpit and Pubic Hair with the Aim to Empower Women

“This is the first advertisement to show PUBIC HAIR!” director Ashley Armitage wrote.

“In this film we wanted to normalize pubic hair because it is exactly that — normal. Body hair grows on people of all genders and it doesn’t suddenly become “gross” or “unhygienic” when it is on a cis woman, trans woman, or non-binary individual. We wanted to show that body hair is a choice; shave it, wax it, grow it, or do a bit of both. All are valid,” she continued.

Creator of #FreeBritney movement being sued by the Spears conservatorship


Jamie Spears, on behalf of his daughter's conservatorship, is suing Absolute Britney blog creator Anthony Elia for defamation, in an effort to put an end to the #FreeBritney movement that alleges he and the rest of Britney's team have been violating her human rights.

In various posts to social media and his website, Elia has accused the troubled star's team of (among other things) "manipulating [her] Instagram account to create the illusion she needs help" and prohibiting her from driving or using a personal cell phone. The suit against him points out that the movement started by Elia has led to law enforcement getting involved in the family's affairs and death threats to "just about everyone" involved in the conservatorship.

In Elia's most recent post on Absolute Britney, dated June 14, he claims that Britney referenced red as her favorite color in an Instagram post to hint that "[she] is ready to take more of her life back," because "red in spiritual terms means strength, fire and power."

Evander Kane's Accuser In Abortion Case Must Reveal Real Name, Judge Rules




A woman sued NHL superstar Evander Kane. She claims he promised to pay her $3 MILLION to abort their child ... so she did, but he never paid up

She says she had two abortions during the time they dated. She got pregnant for the third time, but this time she claims she did not want to abort. She says Kane offered her a $3 million to abort the child. She did, but she says Kane didn't pay up

The judge in the case said the woman must reveal her identity because "There is no clear California law allowing her to remain anonymous"

Kane denied the claim and argued in legal docs that even if he did agree to the $3 million deal, it was made in a private, consensual sexual setting and the court has no authority to enforce it.

Japanese make the hashtag #KimOhNo trend




Follow up to this post

Following the news that Kim Kardashian had trademarked the word kimono and the names "Kimono Body", "Kimono Intimates" and "Kimono World" for a shapewear brand, Japanese internauts said on social media that the trademarked brand disrespects traditional clothing.

The kimono, a loose long-sleeved robe typically tied with a sash, dates back to 15th Century Japan.

Considered the national dress of Japan, it is now mostly worn during special occasions. Many people have taken issue with the fact she trademarked a word of huge cultural significance in their culture. Others were annoyed that the traditional garment now shares the same name as an intimate wear brand. Making the hashtag #KimOhNo trend on Twitter.

One kimono expert said it was ironic that it identifies itself with a garment that is the opposite of shape wear. And many people fear some associate the word kimono to the reality star rather than the Japanese garment.

The hashtag has gained enough traction that even some Japanese celebrities, like talent Murasame Tatsu have commented on it.
