The 355 - Official Trailer

A dream team of formidable female stars come together in a hard-driving original approach to the globe-trotting espionage genre in The 355.

When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Oscar®-nominated actress Jessica Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane Kruger, In the Fade), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Oscar® winner Penélope Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing Fan, X-Men: Days of Future Past), who is tracking their every move.

As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the wealth and glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world—or get them killed.

The film also stars Sebastian Stan (Avengers: Endgame) and Edgar Ramírez (The Girl on the Train).

The 355 is directed by genre-defying filmmaker Simon Kinberg (writer-director-producer of Dark Phoenix, producer of Deadpool and The Martian and writer-producer of the X-Men films), from a script by Theresa Rebeck (NBC’s Smash, Trouble) and Kinberg, and is produced by Chastain and Kelly Carmichael for Chastain’s Freckle Films and by Kinberg for his Genre Films. The film is executive produced by Richard Hewitt (Bohemian Rhapsody).

Rihanna apologizes for using Islamic scriptures on her fashion show

Rihanna apologized to Muslims on her Instagram stories, after being criticized for using a song sampling Islamic scripture during her recent Savage X Fenty fashion show.

After the show aired, people called her and her brand out for using the song "Doom" by Coucou Chloe, for including a remixed verse from hadith, "a narrative record of the sayings or customs of the prophet Muhammad and his companions." The text is considered sacred. Accusing her of using a sacred text for a commercial aesthetic.

Coucou Chloe responded, explaining that the song used samples found online and hadn't researched. Savage X Fenty's account also responded revealing that the show was being edited to replace the song with something else.

With Rihanna herself finally addressing the controversy, explaining it was "never [her] intention. I obviously had no clue! I just hope people don't think I did this on purpose or to be offensive or anything like that! Cause you know I would NEVER!!", calling it an "honest, yet careless mistake".

The backlash comes after being praised for her inclusivity and diversity, which the singer said was "second nature".

'Game of Thrones' Creators Reflect on the Final Season Coffee Cup: "I Couldn't Believe It"

"The Last of the Starks" features a scene in which the House Stark allies are celebrating their unexpected victory and a coffee cup appears in the background.

The coffee cup was scrubbed from the episode, but that scene in particular was the subject of a lot of memes, with even the Thrones castmembers casting aspersions on each other over who brought the cup onto the set.

In James Hibberd's upcoming book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon, which chronicles the creation of Game of Thrones from start to finish, Benioff and Weiss open up about the infamous scene:

Benioff said: "I couldn’t believe it,". "When we got the email about it the next day, I honestly thought someone was pranking us[...]I thought, 'There’s no way there’s a coffee cup in there.' Then when I saw it on the TV I was like, 'How did I not see that?'”

Weiss says "I’d seen that shot one thousand times, and we’re always looking at their faces or how the shot sat with the shots on either side of it. [...] Every production that’s ever existed had things like this. But now people can rewind things and everybody is talking to each other in real time. So one person saw the coffee cup, rewound it, and then everybody did."

  • His collabs with Adidas and Nike are worth between $30 to $75 million

  • He is around $100 million in debt mostly bc of his mortgages

South Korean pop boy band, seventeen, haunted by ghost of mysterious woman

Starts at 23:23

During one episode of the group’s YouTube series, they were playing a combination of tag + horror house by dividing into groups and going into a horror house, there, 3 actors dressed as a clown, slasher and an old woman try to catch them before the members find the key to escape. Apparently member Wonu saw an actual ghost while exploring the house, a lady crouching on a desk in a room, but he thought it was one of the "ghosts" from the game. When he informed the producers about the woman, they told him there are only 3 actors and they’re all male, prompting the boys to freak out, since they thought the woman was a prank, but production kept denying any woman was present as a performer in the game.

Saturday Night Live paid its audience members $150 each to get around state COVID-19 rules

According to a report by The New York Times, Saturday Night Live reportedly paid its audience members $150 each in order to comply with NYC’s coronavirus restrictions.

The show, which hosted its season premiere on Saturday, needed to pay audience members because live audiences for media productions are only allowed if the people in attendance are paid cast, crew, or employees. The audience must additionally abide by a 25% capacity limit with a maximum crowd of 100, with 6 feet of social distance maintained at all times.

Sean Ludwig, who attended the SNL season premiere with seven friends, said they all received a check for $150 from Universal Television. “We had no idea we would be paid before we were handed checks,” Ludwig said. “We were all very pleasantly surprised.”

Would you risk getting Rona for $150?

Frank from MCR stars in The Dodo's latest video

Frank Iero from My Chemical Romance has popped up in The Dodo's latest video, noted simply as 'Frank - turtle rescuer'. Iero noticed a huge snapping turtle in his yard one day over the summer and after a heavy rain storm, he checked out the damage to his yard and found some turtle eggs which he initially thought were ping pong balls. With his kids, he set up a terrarium so the eggs would have an ideal habitat to hatch in and contacted a reptile sanctuary on what he should do with the turtle babies. They were advised not to hold onto them for too long and they ultimately released the baby turtles into the wild.

We're also whipping up a batch of a surprise garlic bread heavy-hitter, pan cubano, the crusty and soft Cuban loaf that loves to be squished. It's a good thing bread doesn't make you fat.
