Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out next July, which means its press machine is creaking into gear. Jake Gyllenhaal joined Instagram to help with the effort, and this weekend, he, Tom Holland, and Jacob Batalon made an appearance at Comic Con Experience Brazil, where the trailer debuted (though it has not been released online). Full Story

Here are Dolly Parton and Jennifer Aniston, along with Danielle Macdonald, at the premiere of Dumplin’ last night. As we’ve seen, since they’re the marquee names, Dolly and Jen have been leading most of the promotion for Dumplin’ so far. I’m curious though, once people start seeing the movie, which is available on Netflix now (I’m planning a mac & cheese dinner for tonight while I watch), whether or not Danielle is going to start trending on social media, the way it happened for Lana Condor and Noah Centineo a few months ago when To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was released. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal is now on Instagram. It’s not necessarily news anymore, when a celebrity is on social media. Even Julia Roberts is on IG now. I don’t know that Jake, though, over the last few years, falls under the category of the “sharing” celebrity. He keeps his sh-t pretty tight. Full Story

Jason Momoa is hosting SNL this weekend, and their promos are largely just thirst traps. When you have a hot surfer dude the size of a tree as your host, the jokes write themselves. Thus, Momoa’s promo as an action-page, finding answers by busting down doors and hacking computers while tearing off his jacket, hitting all the highlights of cheesy beefcake heroism. Full Story

Mary, Queen of Scots was considered an early Oscar contender several months ago. Now that we’re balls deep in award season, I don’t feel like anyone is talking about it anymore? The reviews seem to be OK to good, not great, but no one seems to pushing hard for it. The Favourite is the period piece everyone’s saying will be nominated for several Oscars. Full Story

I have been skeptical of Brie Larson from the moment she was announced as Captain Marvel. Not anything against her, personally, just that she’s too young, and wasn’t the most interesting Full Story

After years of not prioritizing any voice or story other than white dudes, Marvel is now full steam ahead on the diversity express. Thanks to the success of Black Panther—and due in no small part to Ike Perlmutter’s control being loosened on the movie studio—they have greenlit a Black Widow movie and, now, they are developing a movie based on Shang-Chi Full Story

Lana Condor is an LG fave. We’ve been obsessed with her since August when her charm and capability exploded off the screen in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Today I realized that while we’ve been falling for Lana Condor, we still don’t know a lot about her. Full Story
