The Batman started filming in January, but because of COVID-19, the pause button was pressed on filming in March. Filming started up again just a few days ago in England, but well, coronavirus let every Batman villain know to have a damn seat and let a real demon monster wreak havoc, because Vanity Fair says that production has stopped again and this time it’s because Robert Pattinson caught COVID-19. First, Black Adam and now Batman?! Corona is coming for the DC superheroes. Wonder Woman better stop organizing her follow-up to Imagine and throw every mask on her face before soaking in a tub of Purell while holding onto her shield of protection.
The next James Bond flick, and allegedly Daniel Craig‘s last, No Time To Die, was pushed to November thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Well, November approaches and while the coronavirus numbers really haven’t changed too much in certain places (cough-The United States–cough) the movie is still on track to come out and is one of the first big studio movies getting a theatrical release post-coronavirus. You know what that means:
get a gas mask for release day promo!
Not long after the #FreeBritney movement started last year, Britney Spears herself said in an Instagram video that the rumors aren’t true, she can stand up for herself, and claimed that emails that bashed her father, Daddy Spears, and looked like they came from her were actually faked by Sam Lutfi, her ex-manager and the leech she eventually got a restraining order against. The #FreeBritney movement, who believes she’s being held against her will and wants her conservatorship to end, accused Britney’s puppet masters of forcing her to make that video. Well, Britney is now in support of #FreeBritney, which probably knocked the grits stirring-ladle right out of Daddy Spears’ paw because last month, he said that the “conspiracy theorists” of #FreeBritney wouldn’t know shit about his daughter’s situation if it came out of their asses.
There were barely any international celebrities, everyone had a mask and the public was hidden away behind a wall. But my god there were beautiful gowns. Beautiful gowns illuminated by the waning slant of a glorious Mediterranean sun. The red carpet for the 2020 Venice Film Festival delivered the drama, the fantasy and the eleganza we’ve been missing since the coronavirus came along and slapped us all upside the head like Dominique Deveraux receiving an unwanted gift. However, much like Alexis Carrington, glamour is that bitch who recovers quickly and always rises to the occasion! Well, unless we’re talking about last weekend’s VMAs where glamour took one look around and immediately called back the chauffeur (and slapped the shit out him).
In June, many wondered if Netflix’s You was actually a docu-series when 40-year-old Chris D’Elia, who “played” a child-touching stand-up comedian, was accused of being a child-preying stand-up comedian, and so many threw, “Err, should we check your basement?” eyes at Penn Badgley. Several accusations came out about how Chris groomed underage girls and stole material from Louis C.K. by showing his dick to someone who definitely didn’t want to see his dick. And now, more women tell CNN that MOMO’s creepy uncle terrorized them with his uninvited dick, and Chris has pretty much accused all of them of lying because he is nothing but a gentleman who only has consensual experiences with women. Cut to even his jack-in-the-box dick side-eyeing that.
Today in: “Celebrities Comparing COVID-19 Restrictions To Prison”, Lili Reinhart compared filming Riverdale in Canada during COVID-times to being a prisoner. Alrighty then! Looks like somebody learned nothing from Ellen DeGeneres. To be fair, though, Ellen’s made a lot of mistakes this year. It’s hard to learn from all of them.
In an interview/photoshoot with Nylon (that first picture is very Grease’s “Beauty School Dropout”), Lili, who also says she might be an empath, explained that going back to Vancouver to film Riverdale means she won’t be able to return to the U.S. until Christmas. That’s when she drops the “prisoner” bomb.
