Lainey sent me a trailer for a movie premiering at Sundance this weekend, Brahman Naman, a sex comedy that’s a British/Indian co-production. It’s about Naman, a college quiz show champ who’s trying to lose his virginity while traveling to a national quiz challenge. It looks like a cross between British comedy/movie star prediction machine Starter for 10 and American Pie. Full Story

Comedy duo Key & Peele (aka Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) wrapped up their brilliant sketch show on Comedy Central after five seasons last year. They left at their peak to make the leap to film, with the duo producing a Police Academy soft reboot, and Peele making his directorial debut with a Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? parody called Get Out. Full Story

Timing is on Brie Larson’s side. Or is it? She’s the subject of a new cover story in The Hollywood Reporter one week after earning an Oscar nomination for her work in Room. Brie’s been building Oscar momentum all season. Full Story

The Sundance Film Festival begins this tomorrow, which means we’re officially eyeballing movies for the 2017 award season. As always, narrowing this down to just ten movies was a son of a bitch. There are a lot of interesting and good-looking movies at Sundance this year, but here are a few that are worth keeping an eye on for one reason or another. Full Story

Wonder Woman is being done right, maybe

While Suicide Squad got the big flashy trailer premiere during the televised DC Comics special last night, for me the big draw was seeing the first footage from Wonder Woman, which is filming now. It’s not much, just about eighty seconds including interstitials with Kevin Smith and comic book writer Geoff Johns, but we get to see Gal Gadot in action as Wonder Woman, including her super-kicking some dude in the face, and riding a horse and maybe cutting a guy’s head off. Full Story

Zac Efron is sorry in leather pants

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 20, 2016 14:22:18 January 20, 2016 14:22:18

I opened yesterday’s blog with Zac Efron. Zac decided to celebrate Martin Luther King Day by connecting the holiday to having amassed 10 million followers. And he threw in some emoji blackface just for sh-ts and giggles. Zac has since removed the post. But the internet is forever. So here, why don’t we all enjoy his dumbassness again:  Full Story

Was watching TV the other night and saw the trailer for How To Be Single, starring Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Leslie Mann, and Alison Brie. This is what I’ve been able to put together from the preview: Dakota just broke up and her friend, Rebel, is encouraging her to thrive at being single. Full Story
