Official trailer for Edward Norton's "Motherless Brooklyn"

Lionel Essrog, a lonely private detective living with Tourette Syndrome, ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna. Armed only with a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely guarded secrets that hold the fate of New York in the balance. In a mystery that carries him from gin-soaked jazz clubs in Harlem to the hard-edged slums of Brooklyn and, finally, into the gilded halls of New York’s power brokers, Lionel contends with thugs, corruption and the most dangerous man in the city to honor his friend and save the woman who might be his own salvation.

Starring Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Leslie Mann, Bobby Cannavale, Fisher Stevens, and Cherry Jones, the film opens November 1, 2019. Written and directed by Edward Norton, adapted from the 1999 Jonathan Lethem novel of the same name.


Jennifer Aniston was almost written off of "Friends"

_"Friends" has its 25th anniversary on September 22. The show premired in 1994 and was an instant hit that ended 10 years later in 2004 to 52 million (live!) Viewers tuning in. Ahead of episodes playing in theaters, a new book called "Generation Friends" sheds a light on some changes and hurdles the show went though before it aired.

_Jennifer Aniston was wanted for the role of Rachel Green, but had filmed 6 episodes of the CBS show " Muddling through". If the show was picked up Aniston would have had to have been written off the show midway throgh the first season. Than NBC president Warren Littlefield told the scheduling guru to kill the CBS show. The show was put on during the summer and NBC decided to put Danielle steele movies opposite the show to almost guarantee to lure viewers away.

_"Reality bites" star Janeane Garofalo was offered to play a harder edged Monica who was more cynical and sarcastic.The producers described the character as having the attitude of Sandra Bernhard or Rosie O'Donnell with the looks of Duff ( A MTV VJ).

_The producers knew Monica and Ross were to be siblings and played by white actors, but were open on casting for the other four roles. African Americans and Asian Americans preformers were on the initial list. It was said that television executives of comedies were more fearful of asking audiences to laugh along with characters of color, concerned that such a show would be ignored by the majority white audience.

_Nbc wanted an older secondary character, as they were concerned that if all the characters were in their twenties, it would limit the shows breakout appeal and that and older character popping in would convince hesitant older viewers to check out the show. Pat the cop, who was based on someone two writers knew, was added but didn't fit. The writers promised the network that the friends parents would have notable supporting roles and they would get guest stars to attract a more mature audience.

_Originally Monica and Joey were going to be the central romantic couple for the show. Joey was going to be a leading man type from Chicago. The producers found this version of Joey to be boring and charmless.


Ontd: If you could cast"Friends" Now or in 1994, who would you pick as the "Friends"?

Did Taylor Swift Steal From a Hilary Duff Song... AGAIN?!? (Thieve In. Thieve Out. '19)

Back in 2017 when Taylor Swift's 6th album reputation was released, ONTD pointed out that the song "Getaway Car" (written by Swift & Jack Antonoff) jacked a unique lyric from Hilary Duff's 2015 song "Breathe In. Breathe Out." In a (now deleted) article it was noted that Swift herself admitted on her tumblr page to hearing "Breathe In. Breathe Out" and that it was her favorite on Duff's then new album:

The story was picked up by Seventeen, Rolling Stone, Glamour and more, though Swift didn't seem to face any consequences or credit the original songwriters.

Well, with today's release of Swift's 7th album, Lover comes another comparison... to the EXACT SAME Duff song. Now fans have been pointing out the clear similarities between the verse melodies of "Breathe In. Breathe Out." and "Paper Rings" (written by... Taylor Swift & Jack Antonoff):

Collapse )

Matthew Koma, "Breathe In. Breathe Out." songwriter (and Duff's baby daddy / fiancé) even liked a post asking if he (and co-writer Dan Book) are getting paid for this plagiarism:

(he has since unliked the post)

Source 1 | Source 2 | Source 3 | Source 4 | Source 5

OUTSIDE SOURCES: by all means, steal this post, but please don't use cutesy words that infer that Taylor is paying tribute to Duff... if the writer's aren't getting paid then this is straight plagiarism, especially considering Swift's past with the song!

ONTD: Do you think the songs sound the same? Should Swift and Jack Antonoff (Getaway Car & Paper Rings) pay up / give credit?

Technically 'Ready or Not' really kicked off this weekend's box office with $2M on Tuesday night

The critically-acclaimed thriller/horror/comedy 'Ready or Not' started off this weekend's box office much earlier this week, bringing in $2M on Tuesday night (as it was released on Wednesday), and currently has no projected BO for the weekend (but it had a $6 million budget so it should do fine for Fox Searchlight).

Now, the only big release for Friday was the unnecessary sequel 'Angel Has Fallen', which brought in $1.5M on Thursday night, and is expected to make $12 million to $16 million over the weekend (on a $80 million budget yikes).

Some Christian movie 'Overcomer' also came out this weekend and made $775,000 on Thursday. It's such a bleak August that even pundits can't work out what will top the box office (or they don't care given the choices). Just wait for 'It 2' in a couple of weeks, I guess.

Taylor talks Trump and why she was silent during the 2016 election cycle

Cites her mother’s cancer relapse and her public feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on why she didn't publicly endorse anyone by saying "I was just trying to protect my mental health – not read the news very much, go cast my vote, tell people to vote, I just knew what I could handle and I knew what I couldn’t. I was literally about to break."

Says she would have endorsed Hillary Clinton, she is pro-choice, and that she wants to do all she can for 2020.

Believes that Trump thinks this is an autocracy, is disillusioned by American democracy, and thinks Trump is gaslighting the American people into believing if you hate the president you hate the USA.

Pop Stars killing off the role-model narrative by reacting against the push towards being perfect

Dazed praised Miley Cyrus among other female celebs that are killing off the role-model narrative by reacting against the push towards being perfect.

The publication gives props to the females who gives no fucks like Cardi B, Rihanna and Halsey. Dazed says, "younger female artists are beginning to take ownership of their stories, reclaiming them from the once-suffocating grip of the press. Cardi B has consistently been open about her past as a stripper and self-proclaimed “street bitch”, while Rihanna remains vocal about domestic abuse. It’s through examples like this that our exhausting pursuit of authenticity pays off, with ‘flawed’ women killing off the traditional ‘role model’ narrative."

Dazed also proclaims, "The ‘role model’ trope is naive and outdated, especially when assigned to 20-somethings who are obviously going to engage in unfathomable debauchery. The world would be an incredibly boring place if all pop stars were squeaky clean; culture needs imperfect people to create nuanced, interesting art".

Safe and boring artist can continue making music catered towards 5 year olds.

Ms Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight are coming to Disney+

The Hollywood Reporter has broke the news that Disney is developing a live-action television series for popular Marvel character Ms. Marvel. Bisha K Ali, currently a writer on Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral, will act as showrunner.

Kamala Khan has been extremely popular ever since her character was announced in November of 2013. Her book debuted in February 2014 and has enjoyed success since then as the first Muslim superhero to star in her own book. She took her personal hero's (Captain Marvel) old superhero name after developing shapeshifting powers when the Inhuman's terrigen mist spread across the globe after the events of the Infinity miniseries. She was created by Marvel editor Sana Amanat, who brought along writer G Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona and Jamie McKelvie to develop the character.

No timetable on the show has been set, nor its connection to the larger MCU. Who knows if they'll even keep her as an Inhuman after how badly their show flopped and how badly positioning them over the X-Men in the comics turned out.

ADD-ON: During the Disney+ presentation at D23, Marvel also announced that She-Hulk and Moon Knight are also getting their own television series.


Celebrities react: David Koch is dead

David Koch, billionaire and part owner of the oil refinery-based Koch Industries, is dead. He and his brother Charles are known as some of the most generous donors to conservative and libertarian political groups in the United States, and have donated more than 100 million dollars since the 1980s. While the Kochs preferred to work in the background, a New Yorker piece in 2010 revealed them as "a family that has repeatedly funded stealth attacks on the federal government, and on the Obama Administration in particular".

Marc Maron Says Comic Book Movies Are For “Grown, Male Nerd Childs”

Marc Maron isn’t a comic book movie fan. 
Maron admits that he hadn’t seen the new ‘Avengers’ film but also explains why.
“I didn’t see ‘Endgame’. I’m proud of that, but no one cares,” 

He’s just not the target audience for these films, as they’re made for less mature men.
"I have some issues with them and I generally don’t like them. I don’t want to be bullied into seeing those movies. I’m a grown-up. I’m not seven. And I think those movies are for grown, male nerd childs.”

He admits that these “nerd childs” do dictate popular culture, but he’s not happy with it.
“I have to travel 20 to 30 minutes to a smaller theater to see a grown-up movie with other grown-ups, where we can all sit together and not understand the ending. That’s part of the experience.”

The irony is that Maron’s next big film is the upcoming “Joker,” 


ONTD Original: The basic-to-horrible boyfriend as muse

Okay, so ONTD has had some fun with some of Taylor Swift's more starry-eyed lyrics about Joe Alwyn, deeming sentiments like "you're so gorgeous it actually hurts" and "I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover" to be a little much to describe what appears to the rest of the world an inoffensive British potato. But that's the beauty and power of love right ONTD? RIGHT?

And Taylor is far from the first female artist to be dickmatized, and Joe Alwyn is far, far, far from the least worthy dude to act as muse and inspiration. Here are some smitten, moony-eyed, genuine and heartfelt songs about men who just make you want to go

"You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morrissette is about


Dave Coulier

I know you know this one. We all know this one. This is the first HER? moment I can remember in my life as a young music fan. "You Oughta Know" was everywhere, back when rock was still a vital ingredient in the charts, a blast of rage towards an ex boyfriend the heartbroken narrator still clearly wants back, obsessively comparing herself with his new girl, saying she's younger and more sexually adventurous - would she go down on you in a theatre? But the line that really haunts me is "the joke that you laid in the bed, that was me" suggesting Dave told a whole lot of corny jokes in bed. However, according to Snopes the Coulier rumour is "undetermined", but another possible candidate is BOB! SAGET! which makes the "joke" line even more gag worthy.
