Last night during the college football championship game, Marvel dropped a “special look” at Black Widow. The “special look” is mostly stuff from the teaser trailer, but we learn that part of Natasha’s challenge in her solo movie is squaring off with a “new generation” of Black Widows, and also facing Taskmaster, a villain who absorbs the fighting style of anyone he—she?—confronts. Full Story

I am a garden-variety internet addict who loves clothing and spectacle, so during or after an awards show, I obviously search obsessively to find out who designed the outfits I love (or despise). I used to be better at the ‘I can guess that designer just by looking at it’ game, but that was in the mid-2000s, when red carpets were reliably covered in Valentino, Dior, Prada, Chanel… maybe some Gucci and the occasional Louis Vuitton. Full Story

On the last episode of Show Your Work , Duana had a conspiracy theory about Scarlett Johansson hosting Saturday Night Live. So on this episode we’re doing a report card on that conspiracy theory and get into Scarjo’s work overall – because Duana has taken a position: that Scarjo does not have an iconic role (and, yes, this means that she doesn’t consider Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff to be iconic)…why is that? Here is the highest grossing female actor in Hollywood but there’s not one performance we strongly associate her with, one where we say, yeah, no, no one else could have done that. Full Story

(Lainey: Marriage Story came away with several Golden Globe nominations, including Best Drama, and nominations for Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, and Laura Dern from the Screen Actors Guild but curiously was not nominated in the ensemble cast category. Still, it’s a major contender for Best Picture at the Oscars. Full Story

At long last, and more than five years overdue, Black Widow has her own movie. The teaser for Black Widow was released this morning, and it looks…fine. If this was coming out sometime between 2012 and 2015, when fans were most loudly clamoring for a Black Widow standalone movie, it would probably play better. Full Story

The Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson Buddy Circle

The working title of this piece was “Evans and ScarJo circle jerk”; I cleaned up the headline because I am a PROFESSIONAL. But make no mistake, any interview format that involves actors interviewing each other is a circle jerk, and the Variety “Actors on Actors” series is no different. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson got stuck in traffic on her way to the New York Film Festival press conference for Marriage Story the other day but her seven minute absence only bolstered the crowd's enthusiastic appreciation for the film, and her performance. Her sweet hug with co-star Alan Alda right after she arrived did not hurt either. Full Story

After playing in the Marvel sandbox, Taika Waititi returns to his natural state, making films with a precise blend of comedy, drama, and pathos. His latest is Jojo Rabbit, in which he becomes the latest filmmaker to satirize Hitler since Charlie Chaplin first did it in 1940s in The Great Dictator. (In that film, Chaplin plays both a Hitler analog and a persecuted Jewish barber, so I don’t know why some people are acting shocked that a filmmaker would dare portray a fictionalized version of Hitler, this is a long cinematic tradition. Full Story

Ahead of its TIFF premiere, a new trailer for Jojo Rabbit has been released, which doubles down on the satirical tone of the teaser. There are lots of “bumbling idiots” hijinks, and Taika Waititi is in bright blue contacts as Imaginary Friend Hitler which is a GREAT touch, a subtle reminder that the real Hitler looked nothing like his Aryan ideal. Full Story

The Black Widow movie continues teasing us, making a stop at D23 the other day where some footage was screened—sounds like the same kitchen fight scene between Natasha Romanov and Yelena Belova—though the cast, still filming, was not present for this one. We do have, however, some new Black Widow duds to examine. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Toronto International Film Festival released its schedule yesterday and, as usual, most of the major titles and, therefore, the big celebrities, are heavily stacked on the first weekend. Saturday night is the one everyone is marking on their calendars though.  Read Full Intro
