Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Broadway – there’s no way around it. Her new play Eclipsed officially opened last night to raves, and it’s a remarkable achievement. Not only is it the first Broadway play with an all-woman cast, writer (Danai Gurira) and director, but Lupita is all over the show. Full Story

After a successful run off-Broadway at the Public Theatre, Danai Gurira’s Eclipsed began previews on Broadway at the Golden Theatre last night. It’s the first time in Broadway history that the cast, director, and writer are all women. Eclipsed is the third play that Danai has written in the last 10 years, at least the ones that have been produced. Full Story

I wrote last week in anticipation of the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue. They revealed the cover yesterday – no Michael B Jordan but that’s because it’s all women. And, unlike past years, when the magazine was criticised for its lack of representation, this time they’ve included three women of colour, one on the front page: Viola Davis; and a range of ages: Jane Fonda and Jennifer Lawrence both on the cover. Full Story

Tonight is the Hollywood premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s a big f-cking deal. Not like they don’t normally close off streets etc but this time it’s extra extra. Like with bleachers etc so that the event more resembles the Oscars at Hollywood and Highland instead of a standard premiere. Full Story

Haven’t seen too much of Oscar Isaac on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press tour as Daisy Ridley and John Boyega have been front and centre so far and we’ve seen Lupita out there too. But with so many foreign markets, and with the foreign markets so important to the box office, they’ve split up the promotional destinations. Full Story

Wait. Did I miss a “new” in that? Sarah calls it New New Star Wars. But I never think of it that way because I never remember the first new Star Wars. And it’s not like I never watched those movies because I did. But if you were to ask me what they were about? No idea. It’s December 2015. Full Story

Star Wars is Sarah’s domain. This really isn’t a Star Wars post but I’m mentioning it because there’s a new Star Wars TV spot that’s just come out and Lupita is talking about “eyes” and everyone is freaking out because… Is Han Solo Rey’s father? Every time I watch the Star Wars trailer I feel like crying. Full Story

Last night was the opening night of Danai Gurira’s Eclipsed. You know Dania from The Walking Dead, as Michonne. Eclipsed takes place during the civil war in Liberia and it’s about a group of women in captivity who must learn together to co-exist and trust each other in their dangerous, tragic reality. Full Story

At the very least, The Jungle Book looks gorgeous

I have serious reservations about bringing Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book back, which I discussed last year when it came out that there are TWO new versions of the story coming to the big screen. Well, we now have a trailer for one of those adaptations, the one from Jon Favreau and Disney. Full Story
