First trailer for Netflix's "The King"



Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton). Directed by David Michôd and co-written by Michôd and Edgerton, THE KING co-stars Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Pattinson, and Lily-Rose Depp.

The King will be in select theatres and on Netflix this fall, after premiering out of competition at the Venice Film Festival next week.

Brittany Runs A Marathon - Film Trailer



Brittany Forgler is a hilarious, friendly, hot mess of a New Yorker who always knows how to have a good time, but at 27, her late-night adventures and early-morning walks-of-shame are starting to catch up to her. When she stops by a Yelp-recommended doctor's office in an attempt to score some Adderall, she finds herself slapped with a prescription she never wanted. Forced to face reality for the first time in a long time, Brittany laces up her Converse and runs one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. Soon she runs a mile. Brittany finally has direction but is she on the right path?

The new film starring Jillian Bell begins opening in limited release this week and opens wide in September. I was fortunate to get to attend an early screening and I absolutely loved the film. Many of these types of films shame or make cheap jokes at the expense of the characters and this film isnt like that at all.

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


A Door in the Earth

Parveen Shams, a college senior in search of a calling, feels pulled between her charismatic and mercurial anthropology professor and the comfortable but predictable Afghan-American community in her Northern California hometown. When she discovers a bestselling book called Mother Afghanistan, a memoir by humanitarian Gideon Crane that has become a bible for American engagement in the country, she is inspired. Galvanized by Crane's experience, Parveen travels to a remote village in the land of her birth to join the work of his charitable foundation.

When she arrives, however, Crane's maternity clinic, while grandly equipped, is mostly unstaffed. The villagers do not exhibit the gratitude she expected to receive. And Crane's memoir appears to be littered with mistakes, or outright fabrications. As the reasons for Parveen's pilgrimage crumble beneath her, the U.S. military, also drawn by Crane's book, turns up to pave the solde road to the village, bringing the war in their wake. When a fatal ambush occurs, Parveen must decide whether her loyalties lie with the villagers or the soldiers -- and she must determine her own relationship to the truth.

Is Rosalia Latin?



Translated from Spanish

Yesterday night at the MTV VMAs, Spanish singer, Rosalia, became the winner of the best Latin video award for smash hit “con altura” featuring Colombian artist J Balvin.

The fact that, as a person born in Spain, she was referred as Latin, was included and ended up winning in a category reserved for Latin American music, and accepted the award, has sparked major outrage among social media, with claims of cultural appropriation from many.

Many users have stated that she’s a white European and from a country that historically conquered and subjugated the region. While the other faction states that she speaks Spanish and that Spanish as a Romance language, derives from the Latin language, thus, her and people from many European countries are technically Latin too.

Rosalia was born in Barcelona and her music has a strong influence from flamenco.

Ed Sheeran’s Blocked From ‘Shape Of You’ Royalties Over Copyright Claims



Ed Sheeran won’t be receiving any revenues from one of his biggest hits, at least for now.
The U.K.’s High Court has suspended royalties for his 2017 hit “Shape of You” while the court decides in a case of copyright infringement against him.
The court cited claims from musician Sami Switch, who alleges that Sheeran copied his 2015 song “Oh Why”.
He also alleges that Sheeran has used music from other artists, TLC, Shaggy, and Jasmine Rae, in his songs.
Chokri claims he sent his song to people within Sheeran’s “circle,” hoping to work with the singer.

Kirsten Dunst gets honest about her career: "I've had a lot of disappointments"







  • When asked when was the first time she ever felt the power of storytelling, Kirsten Dunst answers that she never felt that power because she had a lot of disappointments.

  • Mentions "Marie Antoinette" and "Drop Dead Gorgeous" as projects that people now love, but were panned at the time of release: "I feel like lot of the things I do people like later"

  • Admits that she feels like she had never really been recognized in her industry outside her 2 Golden Globe nominations and 1 Emmy nomination: "I don't know. Maybe they just think I am the girl from Bring It On. I don't know.".

  • When asked if that makes her angry, Dunst answers no, but she sometimes wonders: "What did I do?"

  • Thinks that maybe she's too chill and doesn't play the game enough, but she still does everything she's supposed to: "It's not like I'm rude or not doing publicity"

  • Knows that all you have in the end of the day is your work and that's what people want out of an actor, but thinks that it would be nice to recognized by her peers.

Troye Sivan Puts An Interviewer On Blast For Inappropriate and Invasive Questions


Troye Sivan called out a interviewer on Twitter after he was asked some inappropriate and invasive questions during a recent interview for the September issue of Express (an LGBTQ magazine in NZ). The interview was done to help promote Sivan’s upcoming “Bloom” tour in Auckland.

Some of the things the reporter asked Sivan were whether his boyfriend of almost 4 years, would give him a “hall pass” in order to sleep with friend and fellow singer Shawn Mendes.

“Top or bottom?” asked reporter Matt Fistonich in a round of rapid-fire questions.

“Ooo...definitely passing!” responded Sivan.

The interviewer also referred to his dog as a “Gayby” and asked him “Ariana or Taylor?”

bill hader talks 'barry' season three and considering the shows endgame


  • bill hader is currently on the press tour for it: chapter two (op note: a.k.a.: its) but answered some questions about the upcoming season of his hit emmy award winning hbo comedy, barry.

  • [bill hader] “for us, it feels like you’re telling a story chapter by chapter and then you have like a year off between chapters, and people are responding to where it is at this moment. in [co-showrunner] alec [berg] and i’s mind it’s like we see this kind of bigger story that we’re trying to write, and it’s constantly shifting too. in two weeks i go into an office with liz sarnoff, one of our writers, and we just are gonna start working on season 3 just the two of us while alec is wrapping up silicon valley, then the writers room starts in earnest in october. that’s where my head’s at.”

  • hader said the show isn’t planned too far in advance; mapping out each season has been an organic process, but he did reveal that there’s a significant plot point that may or may not arise in season 3, which will mark a significant turning point: “each year [we] see where the writing takes us. there’s a big thing in the show that is part of our initial idea when we first sat down and talked about it that we’ve never gotten to. every season i’ve written it up on the board and we put enough story in front of it that it just gets knocked off the board and we’re like, ‘oh i guess we’re gonna have to put that in the next season,’ and then season 2 i put it up there and it just keeps getting knocked off the board. in two weeks i’m gonna [put it back up on the board] and we’re gonna see if we get to that, and i think that’ll be an important thing to know where you take off from there or if you just kinda wrap it up.”

  • whatever this big development is, whether it finally occurs in season 3 or not, it seems like it sets barry on a course towards some kind of endgame.

Jason Momoa got stuck in an elevator with his dog and friends for 2hrs, survives on beer and M&M’s



On Monday night, actor Jason Momoa got stuck in a crowded elevator with his dog and friends for about 2 hours. The incident happened at the L'Hermitage Hotel in Vancouver.

“Well, we’re stuck on an elevator. The fire department really doesn’t want to show up,” he said in a series of Instagram Stories.

While Momoa waited for help, the actor and his friends complained about being hungry and jokingly debated about who they would eat first, once they finished their bag of peanut M&Ms. They also drank their beer to pass the time.

After waiting for sometime, they tried to get through the mirrored ceiling to escape, but were unable to climb out. “Just trying to get out, trying to be like Die Hard but this didn’t work out according to plan,” Momoa said.

Their stunt team eventually arrived, though it’s not entirely clear who actually rescued them.

Lizzo Insists She Is ‘Not’ Brave: ‘I’m Just Sexy’



Lizzo loves the way she looks and there is nothing brave about it.
She addressed people’s use of the term “brave” to describe her body positivity.

“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not. I’m just fine,' I’m just me. I’m just sexy. I don’t like it when people think it’s hard for me to see myself as beautiful. I don’t like it when people are shocked that I’m doing it. If you want to see somebody who’s beautiful who looks like you, go on the internet and just type something in. Type in ‘blue hair’. Type in ‘thick thighs’. Type in ‘back fat’. You’ll find yourself reflected. That’s what I did to help find the beauty in myself.”

Celebrities react to Boris Johnson's plans to suspend Parliament

... Wait, what?

The long and short of it is that Boris Johnson, PM of Britain (because this is the darkest timeline and we don't deserve anything remotely decent) has announced the suspension of parliament in the final weeks before Britain's EU departure date.

Queen Elizabeth II approved the request to shut down parliament and reopen it on October 14th. The UK is set to leave the EU on October 31st.

Opponents have branded this move by Johnson a "coup" while Trump (who else?) waded into the debate by praising Johnson as "great".

Celebrities were quick to react on Twitter:

Young Justice EPs on Season 3: Sexuality, comebacks, and more!



-One of the reasons why social media played a huge role in this season was to honor the actual fans who used social media to help save the show and bring it back to life. Beast Boy wasn't originally meant to take on such a huge role driving it on the show but the characters backstory as an actor made it a clear choice to go with him.

-They viewed Kaldur aka Aquaman II as being bisexual from the beginning of the series but of course when they were on CN they had certain restrictions so now that those restrictions are gone they were able to play with his bi-sexuality more.

-Flashing back to the OG crew as teens was fanservice and to remind the audience that they still exist even though they arent one unit anymore. They also felt the need to address Dicks and Artemis's feelings over Wallys death head on in order to let the characters get closure.

-Halo will continue to play a role in the show next season, and of course with the ending focusing on a certain ring...they are looking to the future and have plenty more characters to bring into the show.

-They plan on doubling down on the core S1 characters in S4.

- Youtuber Aldo Jones, known for his edits of popular trailers, released a new video in which he deepfaked Tobey Maguire over Tom Holland in the Spiderman: Far From Home trailers.
- In case you don't know, Deepfake is some new technology in which you can use screencaps from a person and through machine learning you can get a pretty real overlay of that face on someone else's body. Some dark corners of the internet have used this to do some pretty realistic porn videos of famous celebs.
- Marvel fans lost their shit and tech is scurry.
