When the first trailer for Elizabeth Banks’s reboot (of a reboot) of Charlie’s Angels was released, I said, “I hope the next one gives us more of the Angels interacting.” Well guess what? It does! A new trailer has arrived and it focuses more on the trio of new Angels just hanging around, being lady spies and day drinking. Full Story

The Queen returned to London earlier this week after her summer break. She’d probably been hoping to have a quiet one but two buffoons, Boris Johnson and her second son, Prince Andrew, f-cked with that plan. Why aren’t the British tabloids more pissed about the fact that Andrew, with all his shenanigans, is messing with his mother’s peace of mind? Anyway, now that she’s back in the capital, the Queen is working. Full Story
