In an interview with the New York Times (via Vulture) about his appearance in the next Fantastic Beasts film, Jude Law revealed that he’s saddened that his and others’ work in Woody Allen’s movie A Rainy Day In New York will never be seen. Sometimes, Jude, it’s a good idea during interviews to let your publicist hurriedly throw their body inbetween you and the interviewer while shrieking “NEXT QUESTION, PLEASE!”
At the 2001 Oscars, Björk laid a swan egg on the red carpet. The baby swan in that egg is now grown up and looks like this. Feel old yet?
If Amelia Earhart crashed her plane onto an island ruled by a cult who considers Missy Elliott their God and they took her falling from the sky as a sign and declared her as their Pontiff, this is what she would look like.
Little Monsters everywhere turned off their hearing aids today because Lady Gaga is surely shrieking up a storm that Natalie Portman is coming for her Oscar weave by basically playing Gaga in a piece of Oscar bait. I heard a while ago that Natalie was going to singe our eyeballs in the name of her craft by playing an unhinged pop star. I just assumed it meant she was going to regurgitate everything Britney Spears did circa 2007, but this just screams “Ra ra, bitch!” It kind of looks like her Black Swan character decided to try on a Jersey accent and complement it with a heavily moussed hairdo.
Entertainment Weekly says the premise of the movie is that Celeste, played by Natalie, survives a school shooting before going on to become the world’s biggest pop star. It flashes forward to Celeste in her adult years where she’s full of rage and apparently armed with metallic silver hairspray and pissed over losing out on childhood because of the shooting. Celeste can’t catch a break because the night before she’s supposed to rock out at an arena in her hometown, terrorists break into a resort and open gunfire. She also has to put up with Jude Law attempting an American accent as her manager. No wonder she hits the bottle so hard.
We hear what faintly sounds like the instrumental start to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” so I’m really hoping Celeste is a pop star who only performs Cyndi covers. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. There’s all sorts of strife and scream acting, and I guess Sia wrote the soundtrack, and Natalie sang all her music. Sorry, Gaga. Maybe you can try for a spot in Cats and have a better shot at Oscar?
Yesterday we learned that 2019 would be the first year in several decades in which Woody Allen won’t be releasing a film. According to Page Six, that honor might go to 2018 instead. His latest for Amazon, A Rainy Day in New York, was shot last September and October in New York on a budget of $25 million, and was reportedly scheduled for release later this year. No official date was set, it was more just a ballpark estimate depending on when Amazon Studios decided it should come out. Page Six seems to think that A Rainy Day will never see the light of day. They claim the movie has been “shelved” indefinitely.
When asked for comment, Amazon said: “No release date has ever been set for the film.”
It probably wouldn’t be too big of a shock if Amazon shelved it completely. Audiences might not want to watch Jude Law have sex with what he thinks is a 15-year-old girl. Or possibly the bigger elephant in the room, Woody himself. A few months after filming wrapped and #MeToo broke, several actors who have worked with Woody spoke out and vowed never to work again with the alleged creep. A Rainy Day stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Hall, and Griffin Newman all donated their salaries to charity.
But maybe there’s nothing up, and Amazon just hasn’t picked a date. Or maybe Amazon has shelved it for the time being while they work with their marketing department and decide what kind of tagline should be on the poster for A Rainy Day in New York. Because “Even the actors in this film don’t want to be associated with this downpour of cringe” feels just a tad long.
Five-time bareback baby maker Jude Law is playing the young Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter prequel film series Fantastic Beasts And How To Employ Every British Actor At Once. His Dumbledore makes his first appearance in the latest one, The Crimes of Grindelwald, and blah blah blah Snape blah blah blah horcrux just get to the point – does he get any peen in the flick?
