Selena Gomez to play trailblazing gay mountaineer Silvia Vasquez-Lavado in film based on her memoir

Selena Gomez (Another Cinderella Story) has been cast in the big-screen biopic about Peruvian mountaineer and social entrepreneur Silvia Vásquez-Lavado.

Titled In the Shadow of the Mountain, the film is based on upcoming memoir of the same name (scheduled to publish in winter 2022) by Vásquez-Lavado, who became the first Peruvian woman to summit Mt. Everest and the first openly gay woman to complete the Seven Summits, a challenge to climb the highest mountain on each continent.

A victim of childhood assault and neglect, Vásquez-Lavado found healing and power in mountaineering. Her work in survivor circles has been heralded, particularly her efforts to organize treks to Mt. Everest's base camp for other women who have endured abuse.

Elgin James, the writer-director of Little Birds and co-creator of FX’s Mayan’s M.C., has been hired to write and direct In the Shadow of the Mountain.

TXT (Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun and HueningKai) have premiered their new music video for WE LOST THE SUMMER from their critically acclaimed and highly successful "Minisode1: BLUE HOUR" EP.

It charted at number one on the Japanese Oricon Albums Chart, becoming the band's second consecutive chart-topper, and also entered Billboard Japan's Hot Albums at number two.

Currently, the boys sit at number two on Billboard's #Social50 chart with Ariana Grande coming in at number four, and BTS holding the top spot at number one for the 204th week in a row.

Indie Film Release Guide: November 13th [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

This weekend marks an uptick in releases, likely tied to the approximate start of what will be a long, strange award season. Besides Mank, the most obvious and likely award-contender of the bunch, other films like Ammonite, Wolfwalkers, and The Life Ahead will also be seeking awards buzz. If you were just looking at the actors involved, you’d think that Hillbilly Elegy would be included on that list, but the dreadful critical response seems to have dampened any hope on that front.

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia/Sony and Disney. All films listed will be available at their respective sources on Friday unless otherwise noted. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have already come to VOD: November 6th, October 30th, and October 23rd.


Stars: Kate Winslet, Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Jones, Fiona Shaw
Writer/Director: Francis Lee
Genre: Biography, Drama, Romance
Plot: In 1840s England, acclaimed but overlooked fossil hunter Mary Anning and a young woman sent to convalesce by the sea develop an intense relationship, altering both of their lives forever.
What you should know: Filmed on-location in Lyme Regis, a town in West Dorset, England, where the real Mary Anning worked and collected fossils in the early 1800s.
Where to watch: In theaters; will be available VOD on December 4th

What have you been watching lately, ONTD?

Youtube is cancelling 2020 Youtube Rewind cause who the fuck wants to recap this year?

- Youtube is cancelling it's yearly Youtube Rewind, at least for 2020.
- No word if it'll return for 2021
- 2019's was pretty lame and 2018's was downvoted so much.


ONTD, let's give this a spin... what are some of the few GOOD things that happened this year in entertainment? Shakira and JLO's halftime show, Rain on Me, Destiel, Doctor Who's finale, Lovecraft Country, Schitt's Creek at the Emmys, the TV reunions... what else?

A video appeared online claiming that 'smoke' was billowing out of the top of a brand new Xbox Series X, and that it was the result of the console shutting itself down due to a fault. The video is dubious at best, but that still didn't stop some onlookers from worrying for their own next-gen consoles. To shut the spread of misformation Microsoft has asked users to not blow vape smoke into Xbox Series X consoles.

Brandon Flowers Original: Songs you'd hear at a Borders listening station

Was he inspired by our very own ONTD Original: Songs You’d Hear In A H&M Dressing Room?

Brandon Flowers and someone named Snake compiled a list of songs you'd listen to at one of Borders' listening stations. The list reeks of 1998!

And if you don't know/forgot what a listening station was, it was usually a 5-disc CD player with a pair of communal headphones, located at your local music or bookstore. The hottest CDs were available for listening, to help you decide what to buy next. The Spotify of their time!


ONTD, what songs were you listening to at those listening stations?

Iconic Meme/Actor Ryan Gosling Turns 40!


Remember when Ryan Gosling was still a baby-faced almost-movie star? Well, now he is 40 years old. The Sagittarius Scorpio (okay, okay, sorry!) apparently celebrated his birthday with his wife and daughters.

He started acting in small gigs in his native Canada, then got on The Mickey Mouse Club.

Once he rose to prominence, he quickly became a heartthrob.

He even starred in some dank memes.

He is now a family man and prestige-chaser. No Oscar yet, though.


So... would you?


which actor is/was ur crush, ONTD?


IT WAS ALL A LIE: Bret Michaels Had NO INTEREST in His "Rock of Love" Contestants


I'm weak. I'm in shock. I'm dying. I'm triggered. I'm... I'm not okay.

Am I reeling from the results of a turbulent and corrupt election that shook a democratic country to its core?


I am shooketh about Bret Michaels.

A SHOCKING revelation has come out about his past.

He... He... He... [a spoiler to shield you from trauma]apparently was not actually interested in the women on "Rock of Love."

A producer has revealed that he was only interested in one contestant: [complicit in fraud]Kristy Joe Muller from season 3

knowing this FARCE, would u still go on "Rock of Love?"

I would only go on the show knowing that he had no interest in doing me
I would never have gone on this show
I am too traumatized to think right now

idk if i can go on


ontd original: I watched it so you don't have to; "The New Mutants"

Somehow, the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants has managed to sustain prerelease buzz ever since its first teaser trailer dropped all the way back in 2017 — though audience awareness has mostly kept pace because of the movie’s superhuman ability to elude release.

             - Chris Lee, “What Happened to THE NEW MUTANTS”, Vulture
(it links to a tweet I hope that's okay bc it's not embedded?)

The New Mutants is a 2018 2019 2020 American superhero horror film based on the Marvel Comics team of the same name. It is the thirteenth and final installment in the X-Men film series

The trailer came out in 2017.


Collapse )

It was one of 2 major movies to come out after most theaters in the states were closed (The other was “Tenet”). It took so long to release this movie that it was executive produced by Stan Lee, who died in 2018.

How Did the Critics React?

[Spoiler (click to open)]

It’s also sitting pretty at 33% on Rotten Tomatoes...which is much better than other movies I saw in 2020!

However, unlike my Artemis Fowl post, where I knew everything about the source material...I don’t read Marvel comics. I don’t know who these children are.

What I know about this movie’s subject matter before I watched it:

(These images are really dark BECAUSE the movie is really dark)

The Cast

Blu Hunt as Danielle "Dani" Moonstar / Mirage

I’m more surprised they actually cast a Native American, as Blu is from the Lakota tribe.
I don't think she's particularly good, but that goes for 4/5 of the youth cast.

Collapse )

Random Stuff:

Dani’s power being making people relive their memories physically is a super effective tool in revealing the backstories of everyone.
I wonder how the prop search went for this. “We need those blankets - you know the ones - the waffle blankets. Super scratchy. Kind of thin. YES, that’s it!”

Collapse )
The Final Thoughts

Collapse )


Compared to other superhero movies this's much better than "Bloodshot" and it's much, much worse than "Birds of Prey".

sources are in the post also me, totally legally paying for this movie 🌚, taking screenshots.
There's another movie I want to do this for but I don't know if I can stomach it again.

Former Ballerina With Alzheimer's Remembers Swan Lake

Marta C. González, who was a New York City Ballet prima ballerina, instantly remembers her routine from more than 50 years ago.

In the footage, Marta - who sadly passed away in 2019 as a result of her condition - is sitting in a wheelchair at her care home in Valencia and lights up after hearing the classical piece.

She gestures for the music to be turned up and begins to perfectly move her arms to the music, as she did on stage in 1967.
