Dear Gossips,

It was announced yesterday that the Costume Institute Gala (aka Met Gala) has been postponed following the advisory from the American Centers for Disease Control that all public gatherings of more than 50 people be avoided for at least eight weeks.  Read Full Intro

James Gunn’s not-a-reboot-but-not-really-a-sequel-either Suicide Squad movie is filming in Panama, which means set photos are emerging that show characters old and new suited up for their do-over. There are blurry shots of Margot Robbie sporting a new look as Harley Quinn, and she is joined by David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, Steve Agee in a mo-cap get-up for King Shark, and Idris Elba suited up as a mysterious character. Full Story

Cats begins with Victoria (Francesca Hayward), a cat-human hybrid escaped from the island of Dr. Moreau, abandoned on the streets of London. I am shocked that the location is not called “Meow Town”. Is this mercy? Is Cats mostly harmless, a little weird and off-putting but not sunk so low to make bad meow puns? Yes, it looks hellacious, with its “digital fur technology” and strange cat-human bodies and cat-human faces, but it has not sunk to “Meow Town”. Full Story

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
