Jane Levy Responds to Her Absence in Don't Breathe 2

The trailer for Don't Breathe 2 came out yesterday and people were surprised not to see the first film's Final Girl Jane Levy. She addressed the issue- and director Fede Álvarez's comments- on Twitter.

Alvarez said at a press conference for the movie that Levy wasn't asked back because the ordeal would be too demanding:

"Jane is amazing; we've made two movies with her and have so much respect for her. ...When I saw her shooting this movie, I did not see her happy. I think that she gives 200% every day, and these movies are really demanding in the way we do them also. So I wouldn't have done that to her."

Director Rodo Sayagues added that the decision to remove Levy was not personal but a plot decision:

"We came up with the story, and the story didn't call for her character. So, that was it."

Asshole who allegedly caused the Tour de France crash arrested

A 30-year-old woman who is believed to have caused the crash last week has surrendered herself to police in France. She could be fined $1,700 and face up to a year in jail, and the organizers of the race have said that they plan to sue her to discourage spectators from doing something similar in the future.

UPDATE: The race organizers have decided not to sue her.

Indie Film Release Guide: July 2nd [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

In unusual news, the only two major studio releases of the weekend both hail from the same studio. Universal is putting The Forever Purge into wide release, and also doing a split theatrical and Peacock release with the sequel to the The Boss Baby. Other studios are likely shying away from this weekend because of the forthcoming Black Widow film, which threatens to cut the legs off of everything in its path when it opens next Thursday.

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: June 24th, June 18th, and June 11th.


Stars: Taylour Paige, Riley Keough, Colman Domingo, Nicholas Braun
Writer: Janicza Bravo, Jeremy O. Harris
Director: Janicza Bravo
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Drama
Plot: A stripper named Zola embarks on a wild road trip to Florida.
What you should know: Based on a true story told in a popular twitter thread containing 148 tweets written by Detroit waitress A'Ziah "Zola" King in October 2015. The story quickly went viral, garnering the recognition of people such as Missy Elliott, Solange Knowles and Ava DuVernay. About a month later, Rolling Stone magazine published an article interviewing people involved in the story.
Where to watch: In theaters

Big Brother praised for new diverse cast; faces backlash for lack of variation in age

-Big Brother revealed their new cast this morning and people are happy to see that the cast is actually diverse!

-While they finally cast more than 2 people, they are facing backlash for their continued erasure of people 30+, so much so that the official account removed the bios.

-This years cast has 3 people in their early 30s and only 1 person in their 40s

-Given that the show premièred 23 years ago, those who spent their teens or early adulthood watching the show would unlikely be cast on the show today.

ONTD Original: 10 (More) Indigenous Artists to listen to on July 1!

**TRIGGER WARNING: This post talks about Residential Schools. If you or someone you know is struggling you can contact the 24-hour Residential School survivor hotline - 1-866-925-4419**

Happy July 1st ONTD! What an unspecial, unexciting, nonholiday day! Sadly, the last few months have brought horrific news for Indigenous Peoples in Canada as over 1000 bodies have been found in unmarked graves on or near former residential schools. This has led to many calls for Canada Day celebrations to be cancelled which is why this year's post isn't a Canada Day post - just a July 1st post, celebrating the music of some amazing people.

If you want to know more about Residential Schools, especially the experiences of those who survived it there is an AMAZING original post here which has books from both Canadian and American survivors.

I was planning on making a follow-up to my post from last year already but with the recent news, I decided to focus on songs about Residential Schools and the trauma (especially generational trauma) that still exists today.

I have a Spotify playlist with all these songs as well as hundreds of others if you want to listen. I update it pretty regularly and welcome suggestions! You can also check out my post from last year here.

Former ‘SNL’ Star Chris Kattan Was Removed From A Flight For Refusing To Wear A Mask

He was removed from an LAX-bound American Airlines flight after a kerfuffle over a face mask.

"Witnesses claim Kattan was stumbling around, and appeared to be sick with mucus hanging from his nose. Flight attendants brought him paper towels after being alerted by passengers of his appearance, but also asked that he put on a mask"

Kattan did comply with the request to put on a face mask.
He reportedly had his mask hanging below his nose, which is not the right way to wear it.
Several requests were made of Kattan to pull his mask up.
When he wouldn’t comply, he was asked to leave the plane. That apparently caused some issues for him.
He tried to convince the flight crew to let him keep his seat.
Then threatened with police intervention, Kattan picked up his things and left.

Kattan’s lawyer was quick to dispel any notions that his client is any type of COVID conspiracy theorist.
His attorney said that Kattan’s Mango-like behavior was all the result of an allergic reaction.

"Mr. Kattan suffered a strong allergic reaction to supplements he has been taking to treat lingering neck pain from his injury on SNL. This reaction affected his balance and psychological state. The effects also caused him to have trouble breathing.”

Kim Kardashian visited the Vatican in risqué dress

The lawyer-to-be and mogul, visited the Vatican and its museums, to appreciate the different artworks housed in the Holy See, such as the Sistine chapel, but raised eyebrows by wearing a see through lace dress with cutouts that showcased her silhouette, by Mexican designer Barragán.

The Vatican City has a modest dress code, needing to cover knees and upper arms. They also prohibit wearing shorts or skirts above the knee, sleeveless tops, and low-cut shirts, which prompted people to complain about her revealing outfit on a venerated site for the catholic believers.

She was joined on the trip by supermodel Kate moss.

A sci-fi writer got meta about gender. The internet responded by ruining her life.


Last year sci-fi magazine Clarkesworld published a short story named “I Sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter” by Isabel Fall.

The Story is not online anymore, but it was about a helicopter pilot who fused with her aircraft and adressed topics like gender identity, the militarization of the body, and personal identity. (It was a response to a transphobic internet meme)

The initial critical reaction was positive but once it started to gain traction on twitter it all went to hell

This was Fall's first published piece and she had no other social media presence and twitter assumed that she was a troll/alt right/a transphobic cis guy

The feedback loop escalted into cis people ripping the story apart in the name of supporting trans people

Isabel Fall, a trans woman, checked into a mental hospital and stopped her transition because the "only a man could write this" voices caused her severe gender dysphoria

{Emily is nicer than i would be about naming the biggest critics, but some of loudest voices were NK Jemisin and Neon Yang}

i'm doing a bad job summarising, please read the whole piece, it's great

MLB refuses to suspend player who admits to punching unconscious woman

Trigger Warning: sexual assault. I'm sorry to add to the pile of sexual assault stories this week, but this one is ongoing and I get more frustrated by the inaction as time goes on. I urge any survivors to scroll past this and do not read under the cut.

- Earlier today, Bauer's camp released some of the texts between them to show that she agreed to rough sex. He does not deny the encounters happened, though his agent claims she is privy to secret details that exonerate him. I will let any reasonable person be the judge of if the above, happening while a woman was unconscious, qualifies as consensual activity. His people say it's defamatory, her camp says it's defamatory to deny it, especially since he's on tape admitting to punching her while she was out.

- The woman, for her part, wants him to seek counseling.

- MLB has done this before to Dodgers' pitcher Julio Urias, subsequently suspending him for 20 games even though he was not criminally charged, but did agree to counseling.

- Manager Dave Roberts plans to allow Bauer to pitch on Sunday, July 4th, in DC, the most high-profile game of the day, saying that "it's out of our hands" while MLB investigates. While the Dodgers cannot suspend him for disciplinary reasons, they also are not required to start him. However, according to Roberts, MLB wants him to proceed as normal.

- MLB, like many sports leagues, likes it when celebs are at their games, and the Dodgers are a prime choice because they're in LA. So if you see a celeb at one of their games, this is the brand they're promoting.
