Breaking away from the main body of the Fast/Furious franchise, Hobbs & Shaw unites the two most likable people from the franchise into a gloriously dumb spin-off meant to curtail further infighting with Vin Diesel. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham blow off the Fast/Furious popsicle stand and set up their own joint, along with director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2), who brings a sense of style not seen since James Wan. Full Story

Idris Elba is currently promoting Hobbs & Shaw—full review later this week, but in short: I kinda love it? I think? I’m so unused to liking anything Fast/Furious it’s hard to tell—and he stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. While there, he mentioned that Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham gave him the gears for starring in Cats. Full Story

Earlier this week, we saw a behind-the-scenes teaser of the upcoming Cats movie, and I had but one question: What is Cats? Then, yesterday, the first full trailer was released, and now I have a LOT of questions based on this trailer. Full Story

Here is what I know about the musical Cats: It is about cats. The actors wear leotards and face paint. There is a song called “Memory”. “Memory” is a pretty good song. One cat is called “Rum Tum Tugger”. Everyone says “Rum Tum Tugger” with a completely straight face. Full Story

Do you and your friends have different tastes? Probably. We can’t all be the same. I have a text thread going with one group of friends where we are always disagreeing about who we think is hot. The last time we fought about this, Sasha and I were onside for Shawn Mendes and Duana couldn’t get down because, as we always say, she prefers senior citizens. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I love that Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre are featured on British Vogue’s “special bridal cover” for the July 2019 issue of the magazine. Back in April, when they were married in Marrakesh, British Vogue was the first out there with the exclusive and, at the time, right in the caption, they promised that more from Idris and Sabrina’s wedding would be shown on newsstands:            Read Full Intro

Those seem to be the culture’s two key words over the last 24 hours: “not today”. Those were Prince Harry’s unofficial words yesterday, as he was at the London Marathon for yet another surprise appearance. As it was with Anzac Day service last week, Harry’s attendance was not confirmed in advance since, of course, he and Meghan Markle are waiting on their baby. Full Story

As previously stated, I am SUPER ON BOARD with Hobbs & Shaw, the Fast/Furious spin-off focused on The Rock and Jason Statham. I am 100% in the tank for this movie, I don’t care if it’s good or bad because those are relative terms that do not apply when The Rock is creating a truck-chain to bring down a helicopter. Full Story

Here’s a question I’ve been asking on this site for months now: what the f-ck is this Cats movie? The Cats movie comes out just before Christmas. Like, pretty much at the same time as Star Wars: Episode IX. They’re counterprogramming Star Wars with Cats. OK.  Tom Hooper is directing. Full Story

DC Films is going ahead with a Suicide Squad sequel which will be written, and probably directed, by James Gunn. Though it is currently referred to as Suicide Squad 2, it sounds less like a sequel and more like a soft reboot, as has been the case with DC movies recently that just pretend like the Zack Snyder stuff didn’t happen. Full Story

Did you remember that Idris Elba made a comedy series for Netflix? I kinda forgot, then Lainey emailed me about the trailer for Turn Up Charlie and was like, Oh yeaaaaah, Idris Elba made a comedy series for Netflix. We’re living in Andy Warhol’s future, where everyone is famous for fifteen minutes—thanks social media!—and next up is the future where everyone has a Netflix series. Full Story
