Indie Film Release Guide: January 3rd [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

This weekend is slim pickings for new releases, as Star Wars and other December releases continue to dominate screens. Sony’s remake of The Grudge is the only new wide release in theaters this weekend, and I’ve included it in this week’s post because with only two new indie releases, there is plenty of space.

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia/Sony 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: December 27th, December 20th, and December 13th.

Don’t Be a Dick About It

Writer/Director: Ben Mullinkosson
Genre: Documentary
Storyline: Growing up in a loving home, brothers Peter and Matthew are crazy about each other, but also constantly at each other’s throats. Displaying their individual idiosyncrasies—Peter is obsessed with the TV show Survivor, while younger brother Matthew struggles to overcome his intense fear of dogs—the brothers spend one formative summer in their suburban Maryland neighborhood.
What you should know: Won the IFDA Audience Award at the Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival.
Opens in: Los Angeles

ONTD Original: Revisiting Howard Stern's 1999 interview with Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams attends the 51st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, CA on September 12, 1999, one day after her appearance on The Howard Stern Radio Show.

In our last post about the scandal colloquially known as Codependent Women Part II, moddchicc made reference to an infamous interview that actress Michelle Williams gave to The Howard Stern Radio Show in the late 1990s, now seemingly wiped from the Internet. Seeing a perfect way to spend my morning at work, I set about to track said conversation down in whatever format possible, and after arriving at many dead ends finally found it in full in the media archive of a Williams fansite.

Recorded on September 11, 1999, Williams sat down with Stern just weeks before the season two premiere of Dawson's Creek and five months into her run as Dottie in a sleeper hit off-Broadway production of Tracy Letts' Killer Joe. What follows is a summary of their conversation's most revelatory, and often revolting, moments.

The WWE still thinks being a Lesbian is a Shocking Plot Twist

- For those who aren't following wrestling here is a quick recap (or as quick as one can do for a WWE storyline). Lana and Rusev were married. Lana cheated on Rusev with Bobby Lashley. There was a lot of fighting. Lana and Bobby were going to get married on the final episode of RAW of 2019.
- Liv Morgan was previously a member of the tag team the Riott Squad. She hasn't been seen in WWE for six months and for a while posted cryptic messages on Twitter. In the last few weeks she's been in segments talking about a makeover and how she has to be reborn or something. The popular theory was she was joining The Fiend in the Firefly Funhouse. But this is the WWE so that's obviously not what happened.
- Liv made her return on RAW by crashing the Lana/Bobby wedding proclaiming she couldn't see the love of her life, which was implied to be Bobby get married but NOPE. Liv instead proclaims her love for Lana. Turns out Liv and Lana had been having an affair because apparently surprise lesbians is still shocking and cool.
- It should be noted that out Lesbian wrestler Sonya Deville has asked creative in the past for a LGBTQA+ storyline (potentially with tag team partner Mandy Rose) but has been turned down. Deville revealed on Total Divas that she had even met with creative and discussed a possible storyline.
- Many fans took to twitter to call out the WWE for still using someone's sexuality for shock value and for ignoring Deville when they could do a powerful and important storyline with her. Many also said they felt the WWE was only doing this because it would be considered hot and both Liv and Lana are attractive and blonde.
- The segment ended with Lana’s real-life husband, Rusev (also a wrestler), bursting out of the wedding cake to attack Bobby.

Stephen Moffat on if his Dracula is Bisexual: "He's Bi-Homicidal, it's not the same thing"

In an interview with The Times for his upcoming 3-part Dracula series, Moffat was asked about the character's sexuality and if he was bisexual. Moffat responded with, "He's Bi-Homicidal, it's not the same thing. He's killing them, not dating them."

At a screening for the series, The Telegraph reports him saying,"He’s not actually having sex with anyone. He’s drinking their blood. You might need to delete your Tinder if that is what you think. Dracula has always fed off men and women.”

The series first episode dropped yesterday with the next two episodes airing today and tomorrow. Other regions will be able to watch it this weekend when it releases via Netflix.

'Fun Home' Musical to Receive a Film Adaptation (Maybe?)

Sam Gold, the director of the Tony winning musical Fun Home, is reportedly set to direct the adaptation of the musical for the big screen. The musical, based on Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir, shows us glimpses into Alison's life at several different ages as she comes to terms with her sexuality and her relationships with her family, particularly her father. Jake Gyllenhaal will reportedly produce and star as Bruce Bechdel, the main character's closeted father.


Okay, so it's been two hours and no one else has confirmed this, but it hasn't been deleted either, so idk, take it with a grain of salt.

2020 Globes go Meatless

- The meal they're serving, you dirty-minded people;

- The Hollywood Foreign Press Association says that it wants the initiative to raise environmental awareness about food consumption and waste;

- The menu-change happened only two weeks before the show, which caused some disgruntlement from the people providing the meal;

- Items on the main entree include king oyster mushrooms scallops and wild mushroom risotto, along with roasted baby purple and green Brussels sprouts and carrots. A chilled golden beet soup will be served as an appetizer.


As someone who just made one - you can't go wrong with risotto. ONTD, would you walk the red carpet for this meal?

Meatloaf on threesomes, climate change and losing weight

Some quotes:

- In fact, he insisted it (dating good-looking women .red) had always been that way, and reminisced about having his first “threeway” in high school with two female friends. (All this because Mister Loaf holds open the door for a woman and doesn't only think about getting laid -- opposed to men these days .red).

- “I will tell you how to lose weight. Look at the fat and the sugar content. Don’t worry about the calories. Don’t eat anything over 5g of fat and 3g of sugar."

- “I feel for that Greta. She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn’t."


ONTD, are you glad with these insights?

Donnie Wahlberg leaves $2,020 tip at St. Charles IHOP

A server at a St. Charles IHOP rang in the new year with a $2,020 tip (on a $78.46 bill), thanks to New Kids on the Block singer and actor Donnie Wahlberg. His wife, TV host, actress, and noted anti-vaxxer Jenny McCarthy, posted a photo of the receipt on Twitter yesterday.

“I was a very big New Kids on the Block fan when I was a kid,” said Bethany, the IHOP server who received the tip. “I didn’t want to freak out at the table, so I went into the bathroom and freaked out a little. I was like, ‘oh my god!'”

She added: “I served them the best I could do. He folded up the receipt and he gave it to me, and told me not to open it until he left. I said ‘okay, thank you, guys, come again. I’ll take care of you again.’ Then I open it, and I almost fell to the floor.”

This isn’t the first time Wahlberg has been in the news for leaving a very generous tip. He’s known to be an excellent tipper.

YouTuber Lia Marie Johnson says 'No one can save me' in unsettling livestreams hijacked by older man

Lia Marie Johnson, 23, is best known as one of the most popular commentators in the Fine Bros. Kids React and Teens React series, as well as the later YouTubers React series. She also released music starting in 2014, signing with Capitol records in 2015. She abruptly stopped posting public content in May 2018, and in May 2019 she returned with an online presence limited to erratic livestreams on Instagram that frequently spark concern from her 1 million+ followers.

January 2, Lia broadcasted surreptitiously from a recording studio. She was visibly intoxicated and kissing a seemingly much older man out of frame. Things got stranger from there.

[CW: Recording of livestream, descriptions of potential sexual assault below the cut]

Around 14 minutes in, Lia waves to the camera, laughs, and says, "No one can save me, though." From there, the rest of the video is:

Man: Are you on Instagram?
Lia: Totally.
Man: No, you’re not.
Lia: Totally.
Man: You can’t be on Instagram. Are you on Instagram? Are you really on Instagram? You can't be posting.
Lia: No, you're right, you're right, you're right.
Man: That would be bad. Were you on Instagram? Lia? Were you on Instagram?
Lia: No. No.
Man: Then what is this? Tell me the truth. What is this?
Lia: It's just a live.
Man: It's what?
Lia: That's a live, not even an Instagram.
Man: Livestream?
Lia: No.
Man: What is it? Tell me the truth. What are you on?

The video ends.

Lia goes live again moments later, but only for a short while before the man takes her phone, says “Now we’re going back to us. I’m hijacking your phone," and pauses the livestream for several minutes before ending it.

Many fans who saw the streams in real time called the police, who did perform a wellness check at Lia's residence. Lia went live again later that day and the police can be heard in the background. Lia says, “F**k all of you, do not send the f**king police to my f**king address."

The same man from her earlier videos can be heard saying, "Lea, I need this not to go out because it will affect my work. Please, turn it off."

After the fact Lia's reported as saying, "The cops showed up, and detained me, put cuffs on my hands. [...] There’s no reason to worry, I’m OK. I just want to be left alone.”

The man in video is allegedly Steven Wetherbee, 67, owner of the studio where Lia records and her producer since at least 2012 — when she was 15. Steven works primarily with young girls, and many videos of him with them were previously visible on his Instagram account, whetherbeephoto; however, he has erased his online presence since news of the Instagram Live went viral.

No, Marvel Studios won't debut its first trans character "very soon"

Despite recent reports, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige did not intend to confirm that a trans superhero will appear in an upcoming film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Back in December, Feige participated in a guest lecture series at New York Film Academy in LA. During the event, he was asked about “bringing more LGBT+ characters into the MCU, specifically the T, trans characters.” Feige responded:

“Yes — absolutely, yes,” Feige said. “And very soon. In a movie that we’re shooting right now.”

Two sources close to Marvel tell Variety that Feige only intended to respond to the first part about LGBT+ characters, and he did not mean to imply that a trans character will be coming to the MCU any time soon.

The only MCU film in production right now is The Eternals and Feige has previously said it would feature the MCU's first major gay character. According to reports, the character will be Phastos, played by actor Brian Tyree Henry.

Greta Gerwig working on a tap dancing musical for next directorial project

Right off the success of 'Little Women', writer/director/actor/mumblecore queen Greta Gerwig is considering the long-lost art of the tap-dancing musical as her next non-acting project.

And Gerwig is also working on a musical, but is tight-lipped on details. “One thing I feel that the world is really missing right now is tap dancing,” she said. “I’m just going to say that.”

Gerwig is returning back to acting, on stage in Checkhov’s Three Sisters alongside Oscar Isaac, and is co-writing a script for a live-action 'Barbie' movie with partner Noah Baumbach.

Guess Saoirse and Timothee better dust off their tapping shoes in the near future. 🤔

Harry Hamlin recalls his bizarre audition for Indiana Jones


Harry Hamlin auditioned for “Raiders of the Lost Ark”

He was asked to come in and read for Spielberg and George Lucas.

He came in together with actress Stephanie Zimbalist for the audition

Hamlin, 68, told Page Six:

“When I got there, Steven came down. He said, ‘Harry, Stephanie, I’m so sorry, but George’s plane is going to be late. He’s flying down from San Francisco and it’s going to be at least 45 minutes until he gets here.'”

Spielberg then asked them to bake a cake while they waited for Lucas to arrive.

“He closed the door and left and we were standing alone in this kitchen,” Hamlin continued. “I said, ‘Stephanie, have you ever made a chocolate cake?’ And she said, ‘No…'”
