Taylor Swift premiered her Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, at the Sundance Film Festival last night in one of the best outfits she’s ever worn. This is a tweed strapless jumpsuit under a matching overcoat thrown over her shoulders and a siiiick pair of matching booties. It’s SO GOOD. Full Story

I just wrote a post about kissing and kissing has been on my mind all day because the first thing I watched when my alarm went off at 430am was the new trailer for PS I Still Love You, the sequel to To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, which premieres on Netflix on February 12, in time for Valentine’s Day weekend. Full Story

Marvel’s The Eternals is still shooting in London. The movie comes out in November which, yes, is toward the end of the year but it’s not that far away considering how long the post production process can be for some of these projects. And also marketing. Eternals is a brand new franchise for Marvel and nobody knows who any of these characters are. Full Story

The world premiere of Taylor Swift’s documentary Miss Americana premieres at Sundance tomorrow. Yesterday her new Variety cover was released – her only interview about the project – and she talked through more of what she’ll be sharing in the project and why she decided to do it. Full Story

Team Bond is working hard

I have not been super enthusiastic for the latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die, which is partly because the Bond movies of the Daniel Craig era are not dependably good, but also because I did not care for the serialization offered by Spectre—why does everything have to be a f-cking saga?—so the thought of going further down that path with Time is distinctly unappealing. Full Story

Sundance Preview 2020: 10 to Watch

Sundance kicks off on Thursday, and this year’s slate is VERY stacked with promising entries. I sat down to make up a list of ten interesting titles and immediately had almost thirty films singled out. I had to make some tough calls to whittle the list down to ten films to keep an eye on in 2020, and one thing I did right out of the gate was eliminate documentaries. Full Story

The Sundance Film Festival kicks off on Thursday. Sundance is always a clusterf-ck, at least in the years I used to cover it, as celebrities, their entourages, publicists, marketers, party planners, sponsors, filmmakers, and the attendant media jam themselves into Park City for a few days – and this year, since Taylor Swift’s Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, is opening, it’ll be even more chaotic. Full Story

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence: Bad Boys is revived

Seventeen years after Bad Boys II, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence return for Bad Boys for Life, which is equal parts sequel and soft reboot. If you’re thinking that a “seventeen years later” Bad Boys movie will be full of dad jokes and aging references, you will be right. The humor in Bad Boys for Life is ENTIRELY dad jokes and aging references, which are either about how old Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are now—although they barely look five years older than they did in 2003—or how young the new crew is (don’t worry, we’ll get there). Full Story

Margot Robbie’s test

Margot Robbie is having a busy winter. She’s in the middle of award season as an Oscar nominee, and she has Birds of Prey opening on February 7, which is Oscar weekend. Over the next few weeks she’ll be splitting her time between nominee appearances and Birds of Prey press, which, as a person who doesn’t like going places or doing things, sounds like a nightmare. Full Story

Over the weekend, the two biggest industry guilds, the Producers’ Guild of America and the Screen Actors’ Guild, held their awards. On the film side, the PGA went for 1917 as their best picture, and SAG gave Parasite the Best Ensemble Cast award, their equivalent of best picture. Parasite is now the first foreign-language film to win Best Ensemble at SAG. Full Story

Cats broke me. I can no longer tell what is “good” and what is “bad”. There is only “Cats” and “not Cats”. In that sense, Robert Downey, Jr. Full Story
