This picture also features a lady making the exact same face I made after hearing that Lynda Carter was not playing Wonder Woman in the Wonder Woman movie. (Truth talk: She’s probably throwing a stanky side-eye at Chris Pine in half-assed Westworld cosplay. See: the gallery below)
Wonder Woman had its Hollywood premiere at the Pantages Theater last night, Lynda Carter was gracious enough to bestow her star power upon that shit by showing up, even though the movie makers did her wrong by not putting her in the movie at all. (Although, I am hoping that the director Patty Jenkins righted that highly illegal wrong by adding a post-credits scene where Wonder Woman buys her first invisible plane from Amazonian salesladies played by Lynda and my second favorite WW, Cathy Lee Crosby.)
Wonder Woman doesn’t come out until next week, so full reviews aren’t out yet, but the first reactions came out and many said that it’s the best DCEU movie since The Dark Knight. I hope it’s good since some of us have been waiting for centuries for a Wonder Woman movie, but saying it’s the best DCEU movie in a while ain’t saying much. If DC put out a movie that was nothing but a 90-minute shot of a dried turd in a cape, it’d be the best DCEU movie since The Dark Knight.
And now here’s more of LYNDA FUCKING CARTER, Gal Gadot and the rest of the cast of WW last night.
The brown-haired, dead-eyed wooden model named Bella Hadid is currently at Cannes. And the other brown-haired, dead-eyed wooden model named Emily RideAJetski is also at Cannes, and at yesterday’s premier of Nelyubov, she dropped massive amounts of black lace under-titty classiness on the red carpet. That’s a whole lot of look, but it’s Cannes! If you’re not delivering a whole lot of look, take your ass to the People’s Choice Awards. Although, since Emily is permanently suffering from a severe case of dehydration, she’d wear this to the People’s Choice Awards too.
It looks like some of the worst trends simultaneously caca’d all over Emily. Underboob? Check! Chichis window? Check! Nude illusion? Check!
On I Love Lucy, Lucy would sometimes wear this glamorous sheer housecoat thing over cigarette pants and it was a perfect vision of elegance, and Emily RideAJetSki’s look is like the NastyDress.com version of that. This is something Sophia Loren would’ve worn back in the day if she was tacky, on a budget and suffered from narcolepsy so she needed a fluffy duvet handy for quick naps.
And just when you thought that Emily RideAJetSki reached the pinnacle of elegance with this look, she faced the front and showed off a crotch seam that looks like a never-ending sparkly landing strip (see: first picture in the gallery and prepare to be hit by the classiness of it all).
Here’s more from the Nelyubov premiere and I also threw in pictures from today’s Okja premiere because I just couldn’t ignore Tilda Swinton looking like a glorious albino alien mother of the bride.

After waiting for what feels like 6,789,400 years for Wonder Woman to finally get her own movie, the trailer for the WW movie moistened tips with nerd nectar when it was shown at Comic-Con in San Diego today. I only screamed, “SHOULD’VE BEEN LYNDA CARTER, SHOULD’VE BEEN LYNDA CARTER,” like 6 times while watching it, so that’s a good thing.
The trailer opens up with Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) finding Chris Pine on the shores of Paradise Island, and I prayed she wouldn’t start singing “A Part Of Your World,” because that beginning part gave me way too many Little Mermaid vibes. But thankfully for all of us, she doesn’t and the trailer then gives us Robin Wright on a horse, Wonder Woman doing some kind of Matrix floor slide and Wonder Woman taking down bitches with that Lasso of Truth. (I can’t wait for Halloween when messes dress up as WW and carry around a Lasso of Truth made of Christmas lights plugged into a tiny generator.) Never mind that Gal Gadot’s acting is a little on the “my Ambien is about to kick in” side, I am all for her preparing to destroy tricks with her sword while wearing a gown.
I am not a superhero nerd at all, but Lynda Carter as WW was one of my glamour icons as a child, so this trailer made me feel this weird thing called emotion and it warmed the blackened ice orb I call a heart. I had to go and look at a picture of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston to feel cold and bitter again. The only thing that trailer is missing is an invisible plane and Lynda Carter showing Gal Gadot how to spin into her Wonder Woman outfit as the 70s WW theme song plays. I’m sure that scene is in the final cut.
Since we’re on the subject of visual nerd lube, DC also squirted up footage from the Justice League movie at Comic-Con today. This shit has way too much Batffleck and not nearly enough Jason Momoa nipples.
I don’t know if that middle finger is deliberate or accidental, but since this is a story about how much Robin Wright dislikes Sean Penn, it’s more fun to pretend it’s deliberate.
When Sean Penn’s latest film, The Last Face, premiered at Cannes, the critics thought it was stinkier than the stink-eye Charlize Theron gave him at the premiere. If Sean Penn cared about the reviews and had enough moisture in his dehydrated tear ducts to cry, I’m sure the LOLs and boooos would have triggered a few salty ones to roll down his face. Well, Sean’s ex-wife Robin Wright is loving all the bad reviews.
A source tells Page Six that Robin had been trying to develop The Last Face for years, and it was sort of a passion project for her. She apparently planned on starring in it with Ryan Gosling and Javier Bardem (who did end up being in it), but couldn’t secure the financing for it. After Sean and Robin split up in 2010, he went ahead and obtained the rights to The Last Face. Damn, I knew Sean Penn was cold, but I didn’t realize he was steal-a-script cold.
Page Six claims that the source told them several years ago that Robin was sure Sean optioned the script for The Last Face just to be a vindictive twat. They also say that Robin was really depressed at the thought of it being a success and Charlize winning an Oscar for it. The Last Face currently holds a rating of 7% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I don’t think she has to worry about that. But her frown turned upside down when she found out The Last Face was a bonafide flop at Cannes.
“Robin is thrilled the movie bombed. She has too much class to say so publicly, but this was her baby.”
Another source says that watching her ex-husband crash and burn so shortly after it was revealed that she had successfully increased the numbers on her House of Cards paycheck has got her “quietly smirking while smoking by a window.” I don’t know if that’s a metaphor or she’s literally smirking while smoking at a window, but it sounds like the definition of living your best life. Every SuperSoul Sunday should end with Oprah wishing you a smirk-and-smoke-by-the-window moment.
Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood would be nothing without Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood, and I would say “vice versa,” but I’d definitely binge watch an entire Frank-less season of House of Cards where Claire just sends icy death rays at her rivals while working the hell out of a Donna Karan shift dress. Even though, Kevin and Robin’s roles are as equally as important, their paychecks weren’t equal until she pulled a Claire Underwood and demanded that those bitches pay her the same amount OR ELSE!
Many of the critics are saying that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a bigger mess than the maybe-fake tattoo on Ben Affleck’s back, so one way to get everyone to ignore that shit is to dangle a shiny, brand new picture from the Wonder Woman movie at us. The WW movie doesn’t come out until June 2017, but DC Comics hardened nerd nipples everywhere today when they released this promo picture of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) with her mom Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), her Auntie Melanippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli of Force Majeure) and her Auntie Antiope (Claire Underwood aka Robin Wright).
Never mind that this picture is so Photoshopped that it looks like an airbrushed painting on the side of some dude’s van, I am all for this. Specifically, I am all for Claire Underwood in chichi armor and looking like she’s a red dye job away from doing Red Sonja cosplay. I know that many lady superheroes are allergic to pants, and that’s fine and everything, but when are the dude superheroes going to be hit with that pants allergy too? Because I’d be throwing my money at Fandango if Superman flew around in a thong and thigh high boots.
