Disney’s Live-Action Cruella Long Road To The Big Screen

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

- The movie has been in development since 2011. The first draft of the screenplay was written by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada), and was supposed to depict Cruella as younger Miranda Priestly in modern-day. The same script was re-written by Kelly Marcel (Fifty Shades of Grey).

- Jez Butterworth (Spectre) was brought in to write a whole new story, now taking place in the 80s and depicting Estella (later known as Cruella) as a "cunning and ruthless street rat, that doesn't care about the cost to get what she wants".

- In early 2016 Emma Stone was cast as Cruella.

- Alex Timbers (Mozart In The Jungle) was hired as director in late 2016. He assigned Dana Fox (How to Be Single) to polish the previous screenplay.

- In 2018, Timbers left due to scheduling conflicts and Disney hired Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) as director. He enlisted Tony McNamara (The Favorite) to rewrite the previous draft, also, making him the first man to do so since the conception of the movie.

- In May 2019, Emma Thompson was cast as the Baroness, the antagonist of the movie.

- Principal photography was supposed to begin in July in the UK, but after Emma Stone’s shoulder injury shooting will now reportedly start in September.

- It will be an origin story, the official plot reads: “Before she becomes Cruella De Vil, she lives on the streets of 1980’s London with other hoodlums, where we learn the real origins behind Estella’s hatred of Dalmatians.”

- The whole cast and more plot details are expected be announced on Disney's D23 this August.

- The move will be release in December 2020.

The Continuing Adventures of a Lit USWNT - LA Edition

First off, I would like to apologize for missing the yacht party in the NYC post. My bad.

Here we go: THE ESPYS!

After leaving the parade in NYC, The Team flew to LA, got hair and makeup done on the plane, and walked into the ESPYs fashionably late.

Kate Middleton Goes Wild

- In this example of hard-hitting, research-filled journalism, it is discussed how Kate Middleton (and her stylist) are trying to branch out a little, adding "more edge"

- This because Middleton felt a bit stuck in a rut and wants to look younger and more modern again

- She's been wearing a lot of summer dresses (gasp!) lately, and been complimented on this 180 in style


When was the last time you aggressively changed your dress style, ONTD?

- Prior to the latest episode airing, Arrernte commentator Celeste Liddle, posted an article on the series failure to address race.

- In the source material Gilead is a white supremacist state whereas the series has taken a "colour-blind" approach but until the past episode had failed to address any aspects of race and even then it was only a throwaway line from Aunt Lydia.

The View: Kamala Harris, Hot Topics

Senator Kamala Harris Talks Campaign

Editing note: Meghan McCain is heretofore now known as Mam /me again mccain/ because I’m tired of typing her name.






Kamala is most of the show. Summary of convo:
[Spoiler (click to open)]
Ana asks about Acosta. Wants Kamala opinion as prosecutor. KH says she prosecuted sex based crimes, they’re very difficult under any circumstances. Asking people to believe a minor over an adult, predator who chooses prey carefully, chooses location carefully, singles out the vulnerable who are less likely to tell or be a believable witness. KH says it should go before a jury, and Epstein should go to prison. KH was most troubled that Acosta described the challenge in simple terms. Get out of the kitchen if you don’t know how to cook. KH is riled up when a girl hits puberty and begins to develop physically, doesn’t make them less of a child. Goes off on ped0s. Panel vents about previous case.

Mam brings up Biden. KH had previously said she wouldn’t attack Biden, Tulsi had denounced attack on Biden, Mam asks what changed. KH talks about difference of opinion, busing. KH believes they shouldn’t personally attack each other, Mam feels it was a slippery slope. KH says it’s a debate stage, it’s fair game. Joy says most people then were against busing (white and black). KH says she would’ve been on opposite side back then. Explains her position and SCOTUS intervention. Mam asks about it being calculated, t-shirts made immediately, photo went up during the debate. KH says this issue, they disagree.

Whoopi brings up cannibalizing. Says she’s 63 yrs old, country wasn’t run by people friendly to the black community. She wants candidates to talk about what y’all (candidates) are going to do to get Tr/mp out of office. Nobody in the candidacy is going to come up perfect in the previous history. Wants everyone on the same page for unified goal. KH believes they’re of collective purpose to get rid of Tr/mp. KH talks about MAGA agenda vs what has happened in reality, trade and diplomacy by tweets. Talks agricultural impacts due to China issues, automobile industry issues, tax cuts only to the wealthy, how is the economy being measured (stock market), most don’t own stocks so how is that relevant. Unemployment is low, but people are working 2-3 jobs to pay for housing and food. Joy brings up Squad and internal infighting. KH says it’s a vetting process. Talks her 3 o’clock in the morning issues, which is about healthcare, jobs, education.

Ana brings up Don Jr birther tweet about KH. [He re-tweeted, then deleted, someone’s tweet saying KH wasn’t American Black, because she’s half-Indian, half-Jamaican.] KH finds it really uninteresting. Ana reminds the first birther nonsense ended with a poc in the WH. Sunny moves to speed round. Medicare for all = Yes, sort of, she supports supplemental private insurance. Universal pre-K = Yes. Also wants federal investment in closing teacher pay gap.

Sunny continues with speed round. Reparations = Yes, close racial wealth gap, covers her housing plan. Talks about credit worthiness scores. Mam brings up immigration. KH not in favor of de-criminalizing border crossing. Believes in secure border, can’t have family separation, babies in cages, needs pathway to citizenship. KH feels consequence should be civil vs criminal. Mam says KH wants to get rid of DHS, KH says No, never said that. Her husband is in audience, they wave and clap.

I tried y’all, it was a lot, and KH was speed talking by the last segment. She's always on fire during Senate hearings, but she seemed a little off her game today.

'Crawl' kicks off this weak box office weekend with $1M in Thursday night previews

During this rather bleak weekend in the box office, the horror 'Crawl' started off new releases with $1 million in Thursday night previews in the U.S./Canada. Right behind it is the Disney/FOX dud 'Stuber' which made $750,000.

'Crawl' is expected to bring in $10 million on a $13M budget this weekend. 'Stuber' should come in around fourth place ('Spider-Man' will top, with 'Toy Story 4' in second this weekend), making around $7 million and $10 million (on a $45 million budget).

In limited release this weekend are 'The Farewell', 'The Art of Self-Defense', 'Summer Night', and the doc 'Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable.'

I guess everyone's waiting on the critically-all-over-the-place 'The Lion King', which already made $13.4 million in China today.

Cardi B Leaks Chart Showing How Much Money She Makes From Each Concert

In a deleted IG post, she shared a a chart showing the fees she is earning from all her concerts this summer.
Between June and August, Cardi will collect a total of nearly $10 million.
It’s in her financial interest to do one-off shows and festival gigs rather than a full tour.

“I find it so funny that people that ARE NOT FANS have the biggest concerns on why haven’t I done a tour. Welp because here you go, let me break it down for you. Let’s say if I go on tour and I do 600K a night right… sounds good but let’s get in the touring business shall we? Stage production gotta be massive since the fans pay massive so just on stage and production I will have to put about 450K maybe more a night since you know Bardigang deserve everything. Don’t forget, outfit, makeup, hair, I’ll be left with like 150k a night.”


Are 51 is about to get raided

Over 280,000 people have already declared that they will attend a Facebook event later this year called "Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us." Area 51 is an US Air Force facility fiercely guarded to keep trespassers out of the top-secret military base, located just 129 kilometers (80 miles) from Las Vegas. The base's current primary purpose is publicly unknown, and has been in the spotlight of alien believers since the 50's.

Scheduled for 3am on September 20, the raid has been organized with one mission in mind: to “see them aliens”. In order to get past security, attendees have come up with a plan to outrun any bullets. Area 51 spans over 1.2 million hectares (2.9 million acres).

What goes on inside the perimeter is highly classified, although the official story is that the base – which forms part of the Nevada Test and Training Range – is an air force training center. It has also hosted a large number of nuclear weapons tests, but is most famously said to be the site where the UFO that supposedly crash-landed at Roswell in 1947 is being kept – along with its alien pilot.

Billie Eilish Ain't Here For "Ugly Guys" Who Become "Horrible" After Starting To Date "Hot Girls"

- Singer Billie Eilish, from "bad guy" fame, went off about ugly guys who date hot girls in a interview for Pitchfork
- The 17 years old poured some hot tea by saying: "Why is every pretty girl with a horrible looking man? I don't understand. Look, I'm not shaming people for their looks, but I am though. You give an ugly guy a chance, he thinks he rules the world. I swear to God, because they got a hot girl, they can be horrible? Like, you're still ugly though. Can't change that. Maybe that's why. Maybe that's why guys with small dicks get like huge mansions. To make up for it, you know. Or like really nice cars (laughs), you know."
- Of course, ugly men all over social media felt targeted and got mad at Billie for being "shallow", missing her entire point.

Lil Wayne Quits Blink-182 Tour Mid-Show Because It’s Not His “Swag”

Mods, my browser crashed. Delete this if my other post didn’t go through. Thanks! Or approve this one since I added more info :)

In an update to this post, Lil Wayne and Blink-182 have sadly parted ways. Maybe he quit so he could uncover the truth with Tom DeLonge. Or maybe blink fans are racist idk. Lil Wayne is more rock and roll than Blink. Blink is pure pop.

He complained about the small crowd before leaving the stage, and Blink-182 have not issued a statement yet.

I dedicate this post to thepetdetective, I hope you found your yeti.

Edit: since I submitted this post there has been news that Lil Wayne has rejoined the tour but that isn’t trending on twitter yet so who knows. Thank you, selina_kyle
