Here’s Timothee Chalamet at the London premiere of Beautiful Boy inspired by Harry Styles. Timmy was in great spirits – perhaps he knew that the movie was doing very well stateside at the box office.  Beautiful Boy posted one of the highest per-screen averages of the year, with around $55,000 per screen at four theatres in New York in LA. Full Story

Well, I assume it’s a rom-com. Issa Rae will be starring in a movie called American Princess about an American woman who moves to London and falls in love “in a very unexpected way”. I assume that means she falls in love with a royal. And I assume it’s a romantic comedy because we need something to provide relief from the horror—existential and actual—of life right now. Full Story

If you don’t already know Stephan James, you will soon. He’s at the point in his career I like to call the Oprah Burn. You know the Oprah quote. The one she says Quincy Jones said first but no one remembers that.  “Your future is so bright it burns my eyes.”  Stephan James is staring down a blindingly bright future. Full Story

Once upon a time, Marvel was called cheap, largely because they didn’t pay their actors massive contracts (and also famously serving Subway sandwiches at their press junkets). Then, The Avengers happened and RDJ pulled in $50 million. So the story became that Marvel was cheap, except for RDJ, who gets the GDP of a small country just for showing up. Full Story

Following the success of It, Castle Rock, and to a lesser extent Gerald’s Game—and totally ignoring The Dark Tower—the Stephen King resurgence continues with a new adaptation of Pet Sematary, aka That Movie That Made You Afraid of Cats. Pet Sematary is not my favorite Stephen King movie because it is BLATANT, ANTI-CAT PROPAGANDA and we don’t stand for that in my house. Full Story

I think about the Black Panther press tour a lot. Mostly, I think about how much I miss it and how much joy it brought into my life. Well, awards season is coming, and the Black Panther press tour is getting a second leg. Angela Bassett Full Story

There was no doubt he would, and in a move pretty much everyone—including me—predicted, he is going to work for Marvel’s arch-rival, DC. James Gunn has been tapped to write a new script for Suicide Squad 2, and maybe he will direct it, too. Full Story

Goddamn Timothee Chalamet is pretty. Look at that bone structure. It’s just… such a pretty face. Also I love him in this red suit. Louis Vuitton, styled similarly to how it was sent down the runway, with just a plain red t-shirt underneath but with crisp, sharp white sneakers instead of boots. Full Story
