This summer, you’re invited to Portorosso. Watch the new trailer for Disney and Pixar’s Luca and see the film June 18 on Disney+.
Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s original feature film “Luca” is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) and produced by Andrea Warren (“Lava,” “Cars 3”), “Luca” releases June 18 on Disney+.
In light of Chloe Zhao's historic Best Director win, the YouTube channel Be Kind Rewind examines how female directors are sidelined in entertainment, what films get female directors recognized by the Oscars, and where do we go from here for female-led projects.
Based on the beloved DC Comic, and Executive Produced by Susan Downey & Robert Downey Jr., Sweet Tooth is a post-apocalyptic fairytale about a hybrid deer-boy and a wandering loner who embark on an extraordinary adventure. All episodes of Sweet Tooth premiere on June 4, 2021, only on Netflix.
The next couple of weeks represent a little bit of a lull in new releases - for example, Separation is the only wide release this week, and it’s not from a major studio. But once the end of May hits, the industry is going full speed ahead with major new releases. And the further we get into the year, the more packed the release schedule becomes, with many films that were supposed to be out in 2020 taking release dates in the latter half of 2021, when even more people can get back to theaters.
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: April 23rd, April 16th, and April 9th.
Stars: Rupert Friend, Brian Cox, Madeline Brewer, Mamie Gummer
Writer: Nick Amadeus, Scott Braun
Director: William Brent Bell
Plot: A young girl finds solace in her artist father and the ghost of her dead mother.
What you should know: Director William Brent Bell also directed The Boy and its sequel.

Billie Eilish has released the next single off her upcoming sophomore album, with a self-directed music video accompanying the launch. The album, titled "Happier Than Ever," will be released on July 30th, with 16 tracks:
Though Morgan Wallen is up for six awards, based on charting, he will not be invited to the ceremony, producers said: "It is heartening and encouraging to hear that Morgan is taking steps in his anti-racist journey and starting to do some meaningful work" https://t.co/qVOs1i6Mlh— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) April 29, 2021
Billboard told Mullet to fuck off, “Mullet Wallen is a finalist this year based on charting. As his recent conduct does not align with our core values, we will not be including him on the show in any capacity (performing, presenting, accepting).” — Billboard on Mullet Wallen.
It actually IS representative of our town because this isn’t his first “scuffle” and he just demolished a huge streaming record last month regardless. We all know it wasn’t his first time using that word. We keep them rich and protected at all costs with no recourse.— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) February 3, 2021
Maren Moris was the first to speak on Mullet's racist behavior. Since then Mullet was dropped from his label, pulled from radio playlists and dropped from Twerk Country Super Star Luke Bryan's tour. Repulsive behavior from Mullet's fanbase ensued as they bought billboards in nashville to support him, streamed his music and get this... they attacked the person who leaked the video of mullet saying the slur.
So is Bucky Barnes still 'The Winter Soldier' or not? Comicbook's Brandon Davis sat down with Malcom Spellman, head writer and creator of Marvel's 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier', to discuss how Bucky views this name by the end of the series finale. Spellman had this to say:
"I think Bucky enters this thing truly believing he is kind of the Winter Soldier no matter what anyone says. By the end, he has the moment with the old man, but more importantly, nobody has caught this... I've been saying it all day. In the scene with the Flag-Smashers in Episode 6, when one of those people gets out of that van and thanks Bucky, that's his first time being a hero. So by the end of this series, Bucky is emerging as having shed the burden of the Winter Soldier. He has found a new family, ironically, it's a Black family in Louisiana. And he has tasted being a hero for the first time. And I think he's now free to become something amazing."
Does this allude to Bucky possibly being called by a new name? Personally, I think so.
What should the next title be, ontd?

INSTANT REGRET: Joe Rogan responds to backlash he got for saying young and healthy people should not get vaccinated. Joe says "When I say something stupid. I'm not thinking about what I'm going to say before I say it. I'm just saying it." pic.twitter.com/4bHndJgilG— Def Noodles (@defnoodles) April 29, 2021
"When I say something stupid. I'm not thinking about what I'm going to say before I say it. I'm just saying it." says Joe. What Rogan said was irresponsible and his explanation is a convenient way to shrug off accountability. ‘I believe [the vaccines are] safe,’ and I encouraged many people to take them,” he explained. “My parents were vaccinated. I just said, ‘I don’t think that if you’re a young, healthy person, that you need it.’” Rogan claims he's not anti-vaxx.... ok.
For this TOP 7 I tried to get a good mix of iconic episodes between fans and ones that show what Run BTS is all about. Also, for the purposes of this list and the data I counted multiple part episodes as one episode, meaning that there are 84 unique episodes. Usually new fans don’t know where to start so this could be a good list! Also, old fans can complain about my choices and non fans can maybe think it could be fun to watch? If you do join us! Run BTS is still going and releases new episodes every Tuesday at 9pm KST.
HERE ARE THE TOP 7 RUN BTS EPISODES (according to me)! LETS GET IT!!!

15 Groundbreaking TV Show Moments That Were Actually A Really Big Deal When They Aired https://t.co/zVY8X4EkBL— Guncelkal.net (@guncelkalnet) April 23, 2021
-There's always a first for everything and these moments shook tv audiences at the time.
-5 moments (read the rest at the link) that were groundbreaking at the time of airing were:
- Maude starring Bea Arthur - Picture it, 1972, Maude is 47 years old and unexpectedly gets pregnant. In the end the character decides to go through with an abortion. It was a touchy subject back then and fast forward to today and it's still something that is rarely discussed on television and is even hotter topic in real life.
- Star Trek - It's 1968 and interracial relationships were a rare sight on television. Star Trek went where no tv show had gone before by having Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura lock lips resulting in the first interracial kiss on television.
- I Love Lucy - Primetime television tended to play things fairly safe back then, the characters weren't meant to be seen as sexual beings but Lucy changed that being the first pregnant woman on a major Prime time television show.
- Golden Girls - Blanche introduces her friends to her gay brother who surprises Blanche with the fact that he and his significant other plan on being married. While Blanche believed that she was able to accept her brother being gay, she couldn't come to terms that her brother would be a married gay man and not hide it from the world. Sophia was quick to check Blanche and remind her that her brother wants the same thing as what Blanche had with her husband.
- Family Matters - Police are a touchy subject nowadays but Family Matters was already addressing how racist they can be against black people. Carl Winslow calls out his fellow policemen for racial profiling his son and calling them out on their bs.
What are some of your fave groundbreaking moments in tv? What moments would be groundbreaking today that have yet to be tackled?

The upcoming “Masters of the Universe” movie will no longer star Noah Centineo as He-Man. “He is no longer attached to that project,” a rep for Centineo told Collider on Thursday, but no reason was given.
His involvement was announced two years ago in 2019.
However the evil is not defeated, as Centumblr was recently cast in a new CIA film for Netflix. He will be playing a lawyer.

This is the ONTD post we had on the 10-year anniversary, in which this OP found out BoB was a flat earther, and another commenter posted an OT comment that Christina Aguilera was releasing new music. Ahh, 2018.

CALL OUT: Bill Maher calls out Twitch viewers saying “I just think people watching other people playing video games is a waste of f*cking time.” pic.twitter.com/GF5kIfF47K— Def Noodles (@defnoodles) April 29, 2021
Overall piece of shit Bill Maher upset the Twitch community recently with yet another hot take. The HBO political talk show host said that people who watch others play video games online is a waste of time.
Do you think watching others play video games on Twitch, YouTube, etc as a waste of time? Who do you enjoy watching?

Atsuko Hirayanagi To Direct Legendary’s ‘The Last Adventures Of Constance Verity’ Starring Awkwafina https://t.co/WcSf4ynR8k— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) April 29, 2021
Spirt Award nominee Atsuko Hirayanag will direct an adaptation of The Last Adventures of Constance Verity starring Awkwafina. The film is based on the fantasy adventure novel written by A. Lee Martinez.
“The story centers on Constance Verity who, for mysterious reasons, was thrust into a battle with the supernatural the moment she was born, and has been saving the world from disaster ever since. Now in her thirties, Connie’s biggest dream is to live a simple life – settle down with a boyfriend, hold a boring desk job, find some friends and just be NORMAL. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to walk away from the supernatural if you are, in fact, the chosen one.”
"There he was, dressed as Tony." Edie Falco reveals the existence of a secret #Sopranos sequel short film that she shot with James Gandolfini in 2010 for an unexpected reason. It involves LeBron James. More here: https://t.co/BN46otPCwQ pic.twitter.com/DSZGTH6Cir— IndieWire (@IndieWire) April 30, 2021
Back in 2010, Lebron James was a free agent and the NY Knicks wanted him so badly they convinced James Gandolfini and Edie Falco to film a post-Sopranos short to get him to say yes.
Edie went into details of the short for the Atlantic's Knicks podcast, saying it took place with Tony in witness protection. She mentions they got requests for stuff like that all the time and was shocked James actually agreed to what the Knicks offered him.
Edie was even more shocked it didn't work, as Lebron went to Miami. "How does anyone say no to New York, for God’s sake?"
The Atlantic had no success in finding the short film, and the chances of it still existing seems very low.
Pop star Olivia Rodrigo’s skin and makeup routine has become a daily reminder of self-care.
Noel Clarke (45) is a prolific UK entertainer. From his film trilogy Kidulthood, Adulthood and Brotherhood to his time as Mickey on Doctor Who, Clarke is well known and has a deal with Channel 4.
20 women have accused him of sexual misconduct from 2009 - 2019.
Noel Clarke was awarded an outstanding contribution achievement BAFTA on April 10. The Guardian gave the BAFTAs a heads up of their investigation and findings.......but they awarded him anyway. This is being treated (by Clarke) as a metoo witch-hunt, bad conversation regret and is demanding proof. There are corroborating witnesses to most accounts and still...he gets a prize.
BAFTA have now suspended his membership.......19 days later.

Actress, director, and visual artist Lucy Liu wrote a piece for the Washington Post reflecting on the highlights of her career as an Asian-American actress, the characters she played, and discusses some of the struggles that Asian-Americans have faced historically. In summary:
Olivia Williams, who was last seen in 'The Father', is reportedly set to play Camilla Parker-Bowles in the fifth season of 'The Crown', taking over Oscar winner Emerald Fennell from the fourth season.
Williams will join the already confirmed cast of Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Dominic West supposedly as Prince Charles (though is this legit confirmed?), Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, with filming beginning in July. Apparently there are also rumors going around that the production's having trouble casting Prince Andrew (wonder why).
