Indie Film Release Guide: September 3rd [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

It's September, which will be a relatively quiet month for new films before the onslaught begins in October. The sole major studio release this weekend is Disney’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which looks to have no real competition at the box office for the next few weeks at a minimum. While that film is obviously going to take the box office crown, there are over a dozen other new films to take in this weekend - check them out below.

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Studios, 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: August 27th, August 20th, and August 13th.

David Crosby on Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Discovering He Had a Son, and More

Musician David Crosby was interviewed by The Guardian and it very much fits in with the recent trend of elderly celebs letting it all out in interviews. I've included some highlights from the piece below:

On turning 80: “Eighty years old is something you mourn, not celebrate.”

On the son he didn't know he had:
Crosby was in his early 20s when Raymond’s mother became pregnant. “She gave him up for adoption and didn’t tell me he existed,” he says. When Raymond and his partner were about to have their first child, his adoptive parents suggested he might want to track down his biological parents.

So often, Crosby says, such reunions end up in animosity. “But James did a wonderful thing, man. He gave me a chance to earn my way into his life.” How did he do that? “By making music with him. And we write spectacularly well together.”

Judge handling Jolie-Pitt divorce case told to step down.

In its ruling, the appeals court said Judge Ouderkirk did not disclose his business relationships with Pitt's lawyers.

This was an "ethical breach" that may cast doubt on "the judge's ability to be impartial", the court said.

The ruling means the legal battle over the couple's five minor children may have to be restarted before a new judge.

Private judges are often hired in the US to mediate disputes between divorcing celebrities for privacy reasons.

Backlash on Cheryl Cole BBC R&B podcast hiring

"If Cole fronting the podcast feels to you like a storm in a teacup then you haven’t felt the frustration of a Pinnock or a Burke or a Keisha Buchanan from the Sugababes who has also spoken about similar isolation."
It's an opinion piece in The Daily Mirror (blecch) but a good basis for discussion if one doesn't know or understand the background of the controversy.


Bastille “Thelma + Louise” MV

Picking up where their video for “Distorted Light Beam” left off, Bastille have released a video for “Thelma + Louise” off of their upcoming fourth album (announce it, already!).

🚨 ABBA Reunites After 40 Years. Releases New Music + Announces Concert 🚨

-Released 2 new songs "I Still have Faith In You" and "Don't Shut Me Down" for their new album "Voyage", out on November 5.

-Will be performing digitally via avatars with a live 10-piece band in a purpose-built arena in London, beginning on May 27, 2022.

In a statement, they said:

“It’s been a while since we made music together. Almost 40 years, actually. We took a break in the spring of 1982 and now we’ve decided it’s time to end it. They say it’s foolhardy to wait more than 40 years between albums, so we’ve recorded a follow-up to [1981’s] ‘The Visitors.’ To tell the truth, the main inspiration to record again comes from our involvement in creating the strangest and most spectacular concert you could ever dream of..."

Jamie Spears tried to get producer fired for taking a selfie with Britney

Showing yet again the depths of micro-management that Britney had to endure, an entertainment producer has spoken out about how Jamie Spears tried to get him fired from his job after he took a selfie with Britney, which she herself had consented to in 2016.

Despite meeting Britney numerous times and producing many successful interview segments with her, the producer was banned from ever being backstage with Britney or working with her ever again.

When the producer went public with the story in 2019, he was told that Britney's team demanded he be fired but fortunately for him he wasn't working there anymore to begin with.

He also notes how many people that got close to Britney professionally were often laid off or removed by her team.

Tyler Perry Claps Back at Mean Tweets About Sistas (BET) Wigs

Tyler Perry is tired of the mean tweets his hit BET drama Sistas constantly attracts.
The women rock a myriad of hairstyles including culturally astute natural braids and twists, as well as permed and straightened hair.

“I want all of y’all to stop talking about hair to me, please. I swear to you, these are the things I can do: I can run a company, I can build a house, I can go on stage. I do all of this stuff. I know what I do. I don’t know how to do hair. I don’t know nothing about it. I hire people to do hair. Pay them $65 an hour. You heard that right. $65 an hour. They work 10 to 12 hours a day to make sure the hair is right. That’s their job, so I’m paying them to do their job and they’re doing that. They’re doing a great job. Sometimes, things slip because I move a little fast, but they get it done. Stop asking me about some damn hair. Go talk to somebody that’s got a hot curler. Like I’m walking around with a damn hot curler.”

Dog the Bounty Hunter Reacts to Daughter Bonnie Claiming He's Racist and Homophobic

Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman is about to tie the knot once again, but not all of his family members will see him say "I do." Dog and his fiancée, Francie Frane did not invite Dog's daughter, Bonnie Chapman, to their nuptials.
Dog addresses Bonnie's allegations that he's racist, homophobic and cheated on his late wife and Bonnie's mother.
Bonnie says she did not get an invite to the wedding because she is a supporter of Black Lives Matter.

Francie says about not inviting Bonnie to the wedding.
"As hard as it is and as heartbreaking as it is, we had to make a decision that was very difficult for us. We've been through hell, him and I, in the past three years. ...And I am not going to allow our day to be ruined by this nonsense."

Dog about being accused of racism
"I have never been a racist. I'm 33.5 percent Apache. But because of over 15 years ago, I have an Achilles' heel because I used the wrong word. I thought I had a pass in the Black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem. I had just gotten out of prison in 1979 after spending time, 18 months in Texas and it was probably three-fourths from the Black tribe. So that was a word that we used back and forth, as maybe a compliment. My pass expired for using it but no one told me that. To say a racist name doesn't qualify to make you a racist."

(a phone call recorded by his son leaked in 2007 and led to the cancelation of his show by A&E. During the call, Dog goes on a racist tirade about his son's girlfriend, using the n-word over six times.)

Dog about the claims that he's used homophobic language in the past. 
"I have three men on my staff that are gay. My daughter is gay, Baby Lyssa. I don't understand why anybody would ever say that. Would I die for a gay man or a Black man? I would lay down my life. Bonnie is being brainwashed,"

Dog about the allegations that he cheated on his late wife Beth.
"Beth was in the hospital three times. I was there every single second with her. I went home the night before she passed away with her mother and her sisters because they said, 'She won't pass away, Dog, with you standing there,' So I left. Three hours later, she passed away. So when did I have time? I am a good man. I would have never done that."

China bans reality shows and ‘sissy’ men

China has banned some reality shows, in the latest attempt to reshape the country’s entertainment industry that authorities believe leads young Chinese people astray.

“Broadcast and TV institutions must not screen idol programs or variety and reality shows that feature the children of celebrities,” China’s regulator, the National Radio and Television Administration said.

The regulator also ordered broadcasters to resist “sissy” men, “vulgar influencers” and performers with “lapsed morals”. The new rules are to rectify problems of artists’ violation of law and morality in the “fans community”, and create an atmosphere of love for the country and art.

Idol shows are huge in China, introducing innovative formats from South Korea and Britain, successfully localized for the Chinese market.

Man Quits 100K A Year Job To Ask Logan Paul For A Job, Gets Rejected And Weeps About It On TikTok

A man on TikTok claimed he quit his $100,000 per year job to work for Logan Paul - but was rejected when he confronted the disgraced YouTube star backstage at the Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley fight this past weekend.

Austin Wallace, 22, quit his job in Ohio and went to Cleveland (where the fight was being held) and snuck into the event and backstage to ask the older Paul brother for a job. Wallace tearfully admitted: “I’m 22, I do make $100,000 a year and that’s cool. I wanna act, I wanna do these things, I’m gonna break down right now.”

He then added: “I don’t know what to do. I did come up here by myself, I do have family but we’re not the closest, and I don’t have really close friends. You know there’s millions of people trying to do what I wanna do. Just watch the clip.”

He then shared the full encounter between himself and Logan.

After he explained his situation to the YouTuber-turned-podcaster-turned flop boxer, he was turned down.

“What are you good at?” Paul asked him.

Wallace mentions his TikTok dances and basically admitted that he doesn’t have what it takes, to which Paul replies: “Then why would I give you a job?”

Peppa Pig trolls Kanye over Pitchfork reviews

"Peppa didn't need to host listening parties in Mercedes-Benz Stadium to get that .5🎤🐽”


Malaysian shot putter Muhammad Ziyad Zolkefli disqualified after winning gold medal

The F20 class in shot put is for athletes with intellectual disabilities.

Malaysian shot putter Muhammad Ziyad Zolkefli have won gold in the shot put in the F20 class.
After the victory, he was disqualified because he had shown up late for the competition.
The disqualification bumped Maksym Koval of Ukraine up to gold.

Zolkefli and two others (who did not reach the podium) were allowed to compete under protest after they failed to appear on time for the event. A referee had determined after the event that “there was no justifiable reason for the athletes' failure to report” on time. An appeal was also turned down.

An excuse was given that the Malaysian and the two others said they “didn't hear the announcement or it was in a language” they did not understand.

International Paralympic Committee spokesman
“They were late, they may have had a logical reason for being late, and therefore we allowed them to compete and look at the facts of the matter afterward. We are now seeing comments on all our social media posts that have nothing to do with the men’s shot put F20 event. The Ukrainian Paralympic Committee was getting a lot of abuse from Malaysians. I’m sorry. Rules are rules. The decision was taken. It wasn’t the Ukrainians fault that the Malaysian was late. Others get there five minutes early."

Dean Unglert reflects on describing his girlfriend Caelynn Miller Keyes as suffocating

Unglert described his girlfriend Caelynn Miller-Keyes as the “most suffocating” person he’s dated.
He was splashed with negative criticism over the intense description of his girlfiend.
Unglert attempted to clear things up.

One of the questions was emailed into our podcast about being suffocating. So that was the word that Jared and I were then using to, you know, kind of like find a common ground with that person that was talking about the suffocating relationship. It’s a horrible word, don’t get me wrong. It’s the wrong adjective to use to describe anyone in a relationship. I was simply saying that in past experiences, I would hate to be suffocated, but with Caelynn, although my instinct is to say, ‘Don’t suffocate me,’ in reality, I’m like, ‘You can suffocate me because I enjoy spending time with you’ sort of thing.”
