ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

You might think that this year of all years, studios would realize the futility of a Christmas Day theatrical exclusive release, but nope! Two of this week’s biggest releases, Promising Young Woman and One Night in Miami, open in theaters exclusively on Christmas before arriving on VOD in January, thanks to the shortened theatrical window agreements that have been made this year. But people who don’t feel comfortable heading to the theaters will have plenty of new releases to choose from: Soul, The Midnight Sky, and of course Wonder Woman 1984 will all be available on streaming services by Christmas.

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: December 18th, December 11th, and December 4th.

Wonder Woman roundup! Is back Patty back? Gals sequel wish? Return of Lynda Carter?

-Patty Jenkins was recently asked if she would return to direct a third Wonder Woman if WB orders another sequel...Patty made it very clear that while she would love to do a 3rd Wonder Woman, it would depend on if WB planned to release the movie theatrically or through streaming.

-WB has made waves through Hollywood by releasing their 2021 slate to Streaming and Theaters at the same time. This is something that Patty is not up for in the future.

-If they want her to return then WW3 needs to be released exclusively in theaters before moving to a streaming service later down the road.

Gal Gadot Defends ‘Cleopatra’ Casting Against ‘Whitewashing’ Backlash

Gal Gadot has responded to backlash regarding her being cast as Cleopatra.
Critics suggested the iconic part should be played by an Arab or African actress.

“First of all if you want to be true to the facts then Cleopatra was Macedonian. We were looking for a Macedonian actress that could fit Cleopatra. She wasn’t there, and I was very passionate about Cleopatra."

“I have friends from across the globe, whether they’re Muslims or Christian or Catholic or atheist or Buddhist, or Jewish, of course… People are people, and with me I want to celebrate the legacy of Cleopatra and honour this amazing historic icon that I admire so much.”

"You know, anybody can make this movie and anybody can go ahead and do it. I’m very passionate that I’m going to do my own, too.”

Shawn Mendes, star of the Netflix documentary Shawn Mendes: In Wonder, is following his girlfriend Kkkarla "Camila" Cabello's lead with her recent flop album Romance. His latest album falls out of the top 20 of the Billboard 200 Chart after debuting and peaking at #1 last week

His latest single "Monster," which OP admittedly likes, featuring fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, charts at #62 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week after a full month on the singles chart following its debut and peak at #8

ONTD, why do you think Shawn Mendes flopped this era? Was it the hair? Is it because of Christmas? Are there 24 Christmas albums and 61 Christmas singles re-charting at the moment?

It's a Festivus MIRACLE! Seinfeld's winter holiday takes on a new meaning this year

If you're a Seinfeld fan and you've been looking forward to the 23rd December for months, I can't blame you. When has there ever been a better year than 2020 for airing grievances?

Festivus was brought to the public's attention on on December 18, 1997 (according to the source), when Jason Alexander's character, George Costanza, told his friends about how his father created a holiday as an alternative to the commercial pressures of Christmas.

The scene in question:

So how does Festivus work? What does it involve?

Collapse )
Now that its origins and all its rules have been explained - ONTD, IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE FESTIVUS! Let's face it - 2020 was a shit year. AIR THOSE GRIEVANCES! Your comments can be as long or short as you want. From the frustration and boredom caused by lockdown to the general anxiety that this pandemic has caused, there's a lot to get off our chests. Or perhaps it's those damn celebrities travelling to the four corners of the world while the rest of us stayed our asses at home. Whatever it us - LET IT OUT HONEY, PUT IT IN THE BOOK.

This post is dedicated to Jerry Stiller, the star of Festivus and who sadly left us earlier this year <3

Brad Pitt to spend Christmas with 3 children allegedly still legally obligated to acknowledge him

Brad will be spending part of Christmas Day with Knox, Vivienne, and Shiloh. There had been tentative plans to spend the holidays together as a family earlier this year, but Angelina has become "more prickly" due to COVID, oh, and of course, because, according to Brad's sources, "This is a game she’s playing. She still has the kids for more of the time than he does and she’s trying to maintain that as long as possible."

No comment from sources on how Brad feels about 50% of his children allegedly writing him off.
