The Goldfinch | Trailer #2





Theodore “Theo” Decker was 13 years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love. Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day… a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch. The Goldfinch.

"His Brand Is Excellence": How Leonardo DiCaprio Became Hollywood's Last Movie Star

leo-illo-splash-2019

THR did a profile on DiCaprio. They says he's the last movie star.

Unlike waning megastars like Will Smith, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert Downey Jr, Leo's movies make hundreds of millions of dollars without starring in a franchise or comic book movie

Leo is the franchise.

Tarantino says:

"One of the things I like about Leo is he just doesn't plug himself into two movies a year,"

Sony film chief Tom Rothman says:

DiCaprio has cultivated a brand "of excellence," in an industry where "brand" these days usually means Marvel, DC or Lucas.

"If he's in it, the audience knows it's going to be good because he's in it. I mean, when is he not great? But that's not an accident. He works his ass off."

Among his compatriots, DiCaprio is by far the one most coveted by studio heads and top-tier directors

Forever21 'fat shaming' customers by placing diet bars with their plus size orders



Forever 21 customers said they received diet bars along with orders of plus-sized clothing. The customers called Forever 21’s diet bar shipments offensive and “fatphobic.” The plus sized recipients received the Atkins low-carb snacks for weight loss.

Forever 21 responded: “From time to time, Forever 21 surprises our customers with free test products from third parties in their e-commerce orders,” the company said. “The freebie items in question were included in all online orders, across all sizes and categories, for a limited time and have since been removed. This was an oversight on our part and we sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused to our customers, as this was not our intention in any way.”

Scott Borchetta & Scooter Braun's first interview with Billboard about their controversial alliance



Braun’s Ithaca Holdings acquired Borchetta's Big Machine Label Group. Neither would comment on Snake's tumblr rant. Braun said of the acquisition, “the first move of many in building an ecosystem that allows artists to go after their dreams.”

Braun's Ithaca has launched a film studio with Marvel, acquired Atlas Publishing; and started a music-tech investment fund. No word if Demi Lovato will add her 2 cents or if Braun will let Ariana release her Nasa.

Indie Film Release Guide: July 26th [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

The only major studio release this weekend is Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. But between that film, The Lion King’s continuing reign, and the late July heat, I'm guessing movie theaters will probably be pretty busy. This week’s indie release slate includes documentaries, foreign language films, and a drama where Jeff Goldblum gives people lobotomies. What more could you ask for?

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia and Disney. Note that some of the movies listed are in their first week or two of limited release in the USA, so it may take them a few more weeks (or months) to show up in your local arthouse theater or on VOD. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have just opened near you: July 19th, July 12th, and July 5th.


The Mountain



Stars: Jeff Goldblum, Tye Sheridan, Hannah Gross, Denis Lavant
Writer: Rick Alverson, Dustin Guy Defa
Director: Rick Alverson
Genre: Drama
Plot: Set against the 1950’s "golden age" of American male supremacy, an introverted young photographer joins a renowned lobotomist on a tour to promote the doctor’s recently-debunked procedure. As he increasingly identifies with the asylum’s patients, he becomes enamored with a rebellious young woman and lost in the burgeoning New Age movement of the west.
What you should know: It was in the main competition at Venice 2018.
Opens in: Select cities

Faye Dunaway fired from Broadway, + details of her unhinged behavior



The NY Post exclusively reports that Faye Dunaway has been fired from the Broadway-bound play “Tea at Five” for creating a “hostile” and “dangerous” environment. The Oscar winner reportedly left members of production fearing for their safety. Some bulletpoints summarizing incidents of her unhinged behavior:

• The July 10 performance was canceled just minutes before curtain because Dunaway "slapped" and "threw things" at crew members who were trying to put on her wig.

• In another incident, a crew member gave her a salad for lunch and she threw it on the floor. "She was watching her weight and said the salad would be better on the floor than in her hand."

• She would show up 2 hours late for rehearsals. She refused to allow anyone to look at her during rehearsals, including the director and the playwright.

• No one was allowed to wear white to rehearsals because Dunaway found it "too distracting". When she was rehearsing on stage at the Huntington, "no one was allowed to move in the theater because that also distracted her."

• She allegedly threw mirrors, combs and boxes of hairpins at the staff of the theater. And in a June incident, she had a meltdown and demanded that staffers get down on their hands and knees and scrub the floor of her dressing room.

The play is currently in process of recasting the actress, and expected to move to London by Spring 2020.

Beyoncé promoting 22-day diet to fans for $99



Beyoncé is sharing the diet that helped her quickly trim her post-twins weight in record time for her 2018 Coachella performance, at the price of $99.

The “22 Days Nutrition Meal Planner,” a plant-based diet with no meat, fish, alcohol, carbs or sugar, was what helped Beyoncé slim down in under a month.

The singer posted a YouTube showing her waking up for her first day of Coachella rehearsals and standing over a set of scales, which she called “every woman’s nightmare”. Her weight at the time, “175. Long way to go. Let’s get it.” (her final weight after the diet is never revealed)

The website promoting the diet states, “you can discover meals, plan your week, shop and cook all on the same platform. All of the meals that will be recommended to you fit under [Beyoncé's trainer] expert nutrition guidelines (the same guidelines Beyoncé and Jay Z follow).” Users can pay either $14 for a monthly subscription or $99 for a whole year.

Lili Reinhart+Cole Sprouse Respond to "Reliable Sources" While Promoting Awkward W Magazine Profile

https://instagram.com/p/B0WOffWgXJk

tumblr_a04e3299d7147fe6c8e860e980563d35_91ed3f0f_640

Cole and Lili promoted their recent W Magazine profile by taking a shot at all of the "reliable sources" being quoted in various publications on the dissolution of their relationship...without seeming to have read the actual profile that agrees with the breakup news from said "reliable sources". Following news of their reported breakup from numerous sites, People ran a story from another undisclosed source about how their personalities and lifestyles were starting to clash and that things were feeling "super heavy" and "got to be too much".

What was supposed to be a W Magazine profile of a couple became two separate interviews which made the interviewer suspect they'd already split up at this point (two months ago) or at least be unsurprised when the news broke.

Their defense of doing two separate interviews
LILI: “We’re not fighting with the idea that people group us together, but we are paired up a lot. We’re acknowledging that we’re in a relationship, but it’s a small part of who we are as people. We want our own separate identities.”

COLE: “Lili is an incredibly talented individual who speaks for herself and deserves her own voice box in every single way. That alone is justification enough for me to do it like this. I don’t think we’re weaving two different narratives here.”

It was Cole who wanted their relationship to be kept out of the public eye.
Lili: “At first, I didn’t want things private. Now that I’m X amount of years in, I do appreciate the privacy we have, that he’s encouraged me to take. No one knows how long we’ve been together, and no one will until we’re ready to say it. No one knows how we fell in love, except for our close friends and us. It’s really special. If and when we break up on the show, I don’t know...It’s weird being with an actor. You deal with shit no one has to deal with.”

COLE: “Until you go through the paces and the dating stages and know that something is right for you, I don’t think it’s appropriate to bring others in. I think part of the fun that the audience had, and still has, is going: What’s up with them right now? It’s interesting! But in all honesty, my own happiness and her happiness come before caring about what people are saying.”

Casey Affleck Directs Himself in Post-Apocalyptic Drama About World Without Women



Not to be outdone by big bro Ben and Matt's hate for women, Casey Affleck has written and directed a movie of his own about a dystopian world where most women are dead from a mysterious disease. He must protect his daughter by disgusing her as a boy. Elizabeth Moss appears in flashbacks as his wife.

Asked if this film was a response to #MeToo Affleck says:

“It’s not. I wrote this movie and made this movie before all of those things became part of the conversation,” “I hope people keep their minds open and be responsible and measured in their reactions. And people can talk for themselves. It’s not something I can control.”

Trump is having a meltdown over A$AP Rocky being in jail





America's embattled President is refusing to give up on trying to free rapper A$AP Rocky from Swedish jail, after the case came to his attention from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

The rapper is being charged with criminal assault in Sweden and will be held in jail until his trial date. He faces 2 years in prison if convicted. Despite pleas from countless celebrities and Trump himself to free the star, Sweden has refused to bow to pressure, and stands behind their decision to allow their justice system to handle the case.

i like it and appreciate the brazilian disco influence, but it sounds like an album track and is too tepid as a followup to the outright buoyant jubilation that is "silhouettes", which i love along with "heaven let me in", "love like waves" and "lack of love". i'm excited for a late summer album to groove to when the weather is still rooftop friendly.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3HPgrwM-fM

Fred Savage from The Wonder Years talks about his childhood auditions and his old show. I wasn’t really listening bloop. Something about his dad playing comedy albums on the way to auditions. Shows family photo. He doesn’t want The Wonder Years to come back because it was a precise time in life, an era during adolescence, that has passed. Mam said words I didn’t listen to. I think he has directed a lot of TV shows over the years since he grew up. Talks about his show What Just Happened which is an after show for a (fake) show that doesn’t exist. He explains. Idk. Shiri from Roswell is on it.

They play a clip of him as a child with Johnny Carson, he liked Clint Eastwood. Cute. I didn’t listen to all of it. He’s been married 15 yrs, shows photo. True story, there is a girl who people told her she looks like Fred Savage, shows photo. She set up a gofundme to have plastic surgery so she won’t have to look like him anymore. Fred donated $50 to her goal because he figured why should she have to look like him. Whoopi was flabbergasted lol.

Woodstock 50 Possibly Secures New Venue In Maryland

With only weeks to spare, it appears Woodstock 50 is back on. But- it's not a
camping festival anymore and the capacity of the Maryland amphitheater is only 20K.


It's a safe venue choice as the location has hosted similar day-festivals.
The local officials are reportedly "bending over backwards" to bring the
event there. No details yet on what bands will perform.


OP will not be in attendance as the drive is not worth a short Killers set.

ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP - Official Trailer




A decade after Zombieland became a hit film and a cult classic, the lead cast (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone) have reunited with director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) and the original writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool) for Zombieland 2: Double Tap. In the sequel, written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and Dave Callaham, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.

'Game of Thrones' Creators Narrow Overall Deal Suitors to Netflix, Amazon and Disney



David Benioff and Dan Weiss are plotting their departure from HBO, their home for a decade.
They are inching closer to a new overall deal elsewhere as they continue to take meetings.
They have had meetings for a sizable overall deal with Amazon Studios, Netflix and Disney/FX. 
Benioff and Weiss are seeking a deal worth as much as $200 million.

A new overall deal outside HBO would wipe 'Confederate' off HBO's books.
HBO did not want to compete to keep them given the size of the deal and their commitment to Star Wars.
The two will be credited as exec producers on any and all Game of Thrones prequel series.

93PUNX, Vic Mensa, Travis Barker - "3 Years Sober" (Official Video)


"The '3 Years Sober' video is a statement about identity. I put on a confederate flag dress to be able to laugh at a symbol of hate, and played tug of war with Mike Pence over birth control. I had my face written on to get ahead of everything I know people will say about me and had a diner full of BBQ Becky's call the police on me for using the women's bathroom. I know some in hip hop culture will see this and say 'Vic's gay' (which I'm not), whereas if I was white they'd just say 'he's a rockstar.' 93PUNX is about being yourself, fuck what people think."

Constance Wu Wants You To Know That She Is Not A Diva



source 2

After the Hustlers trailer dropped people here and everywhere were confused over Constance Wu having first billing. Over Jennifer Lopez.

Page Six reported that she "demanded" top billing and that her team has sent messages to sites to put her name first when writing about the movie.

Constance's rep wrote a statement to US weekly:

“Constance had no knowledge or awareness of acts on her behalf of Hustlers to have reporting mirror that of the film’s castings or contractual billings. Representatives associated with her and the film did engage media outlets to correct misrepresentations of the film’s characters and castings in the spirit of calibrating credits to accurately reflect the guidelines set forth in standard legal contracts.”

“While Constance’s character in Hustlers is the key protagonist, any reporting that implies or indicates that she demanded or directed this recently reported initiative is patently untrue and a clear manipulation of facts. She has always been and remains a proud supporter of all her fellow castmates inclusion in the celebration of this film and telling of this story.”
