I texted Lainey the other night after seeing Casey Affleck’s new movie, Triple 9, that I think he might have A Moment coming. She agreed, but then he went on Late Night with Stephen Colbert to promote the movie and had an awkward interview, and she was like, maybe that moment won’t come after all. Full Story

Ryan Coogler was honoured by the American Black Film Festival the other night with the Rising Star Award. The award was presented to him by Octavia Spencer who he directed in Fruitvale Station. People keep saying that Ryan is an emerging talent. I feel like he’s kinda arrived now, non? Have you seen Creed yet? If you haven’t, you don’t have to wait long. Full Story

Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie, Grimsby—unnecessarily retitled The Brothers Grimsby in the US—opens in the UK this weekend, a couple weeks before it opens here in North America. So there was a premiere in London and, as he is wont to do, SBC showed up in character as “Nobby Grimsby”, a working-class Brit who stumbles into the spy life while trying to find his long-lost brother. Full Story

Fulbright Scholar humiliated in cruel movie prank

Sarah Posted by Sarah at February 18, 2016 21:10:27 February 18, 2016 21:10:27

Fulbright Scholar and noted chemical engineer Dolph Lundgren is the victim of a recent prank in which a person is hired to star in a movie, and then that movie turns out to be Kindergarten Cop 2, a direct-to-digital sequel of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, Kindergarten Cop. Lundgren, who holds multiple advanced degrees in chemistry and chemical engineering, is perhaps best known as Ivan Drago in Rocky IV: Rocky Punches Communism, and for previously falling victim to a similar prank that saw him co-starring in the god awful Expendables movies. Full Story

How to Be Single is a romantic comedy so bad I’m shocked it doesn’t star Chris Evans. This movie’s idea of romance is only appealing to narcissists, and it’s sex-positive attitude is mere lipstick on a heteronormative ideal where every woman secretly wants babies and marriage no matter what she says and dum-dum ladies are incapable of knowing what they want and only form their identities around men and how they can attract them. Full Story

There’s something to be said for talk show chemistry. Katie Holmes believes Joshua Jackson was a better kisser than James Van Der Beek, but we wouldn’t know this if not for Ryan Reynolds. Katie and Ryan were both on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night, their second talk show appearance together in around 10 days Full Story

I was so happy to see Tessa Thompson at the Rodarte show yesterday sitting front row. You know Tessa now because you’ve seen Creed, right? TELL ME YOU’VE SEEN CREED. I will also accept the answer, “I’ve not seen Creed but I saw Dear White People”. Tessa at Rodarte, to me, initially, meant a higher profile. Full Story
