Will Smith is making the biggest mistake of his career (and that includes when he inexplicably went after the elderly in the song “You saw my blinker, bitch“) and trying to reprise the iconic role of the Genie in Aladdin. Everyone knows that role forever belongs to Robin Williams and the only person who can play that role is NO ONE and/or the ghost of Robin Williams.
Will has taken some heat not only for reprising the role but for the look of the Genie and it even became a brief meme sensation. He’s taken all it all in stride and says he finds the memes funny and he’s learning all about the internets.
I’ve seen a lot of rotten and just plain stupid marketing campaigns before (I’m looking at you IHOB), but Oscar Mayer has really taken the cake with their latest stunt. Oscar Mayer has launched a campaign in which they have declared that hot dogs are sandwiches, and are saying “fight me” in an effort to engage an exhausted public in a debate about it. No one curr, Oscar Mayer. We are tired.
Do you love the song September by Earth, Wind & Fire but always wished it was just a little bit shittier? Ok, a lot shittier? Well, you’re in luck. Taylor Swift shares you sentiments! She covered it for Spotify’s Singles series, and instead of evoking feelings of joy, nostalgia, love and sexy fun, it evokes feelings of asthma attacks, stale beer honky tonks and suicidal ideation!
If you’re anything like me, Sunday nights already fill you with a creeping sense of dread accompanied by a lingering film of anxiety and malaise. So when ABC announced that it just picked up 8 episodes of Sundays With Alec, an hour long interview show modeled after Alec Baldwin‘s podcast with a premiere to be aired immediately following the Academy Awards, I just went ahead and slit my wrists preemptively. I’m a ghost now and frankly, I think it’s for the best.
Ready or not, it sounds like America is getting a remake of West Side Story directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner. Broadway World reports that a casting call has gone out for the project, confirming long standing rumors that nothing is sacred.
The gender-reversed Overboard remake that nobody asked for now has a trailer. And after the cut is how I imagine the conversation at the studio went down when discussing this cinematic bowel movement.
