She’s been trying with stuff like Deepwater Horizon and Annihilation, and Gina Rodriguez now has a leading action role in Miss Bala, an English-language update of the 2011 Mexican thriller of the same name. We can debate forever the value of adapting foreign-language films into English—yell about reading the damn subtitles all you want but simple reality is most people won’t—but what is not up for debate is that Gina Rodriguez should get to do whatever she wants. Full Story

The James Bond casting carousel continues to revolve, even though Daniel Craig is locked into one more appearance as 007 and we don’t need a new Bond for at least 3-4 years, AT LEAST. Still, speculation runs rampant, and the latest rumor is that Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is set to offer the post-Craig role to Richard Madden, aka Robb Stark. Full Story

As we’ve established, this jacked up the excitement level about the tour, as intended.

By now we’ve seen that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have developed their own style. From the very beginning, at their “public debut” a year ago in Toronto at the Invictus Games, when they arrived hand in hand, they’ve always been the most tactile royals. And they didn’t dial it down, not after they announced their engagement two months later, not as they began to work together and rep the family on official engagements, not at the wedding when they sat with their hands linked on his thigh in St George’s Chapel, in the presence of the Queen, and definitely not now on their first major tour abroad. Full Story

Michael K, as usual, brings up an excellent point: you know those people who start camping out outside the hospital whenever a royal birth is imminent? Days ahead. You’ve seen the pictures. Be happy that you can’t smell the pictures. Because imagine? Anyway, when Prince Harry and Royal Meghan’s baby is on the way, will there be people waiting outside the hospital? And will one of those people be… Samantha Markle Full Story

Oh, he’s GOOD. Drake is telling his side of the infamous Drake/ Pusha T/ Kanye beef of summer ‘18 and if there was any question about who would win this feud in the long run, the answer is here.  I stand by my initial track by track assessment of “Duppy Freestyle Full Story
