I doubt the film world will ever again reach the glorious heights achieved by the cinematic masterpiece that is Clue. And that was based on a board game! But a new star-studded murder mystery movie called Knives Out looks like it might, at the very least, be a fun diversion based on Daniel Craig’s sweet tea infused Tennessee Williams meets Vampire Bill accent. According to The Verge, Daniel plays Detective Benoit Blanc in the film director Rain Johnson describes as a tribute to Agatha Christie.
So this is actually not news to me, because I am a Chris Evans superfan. I know what you’re thinking: “Kristian, but you’re always talking about Chris Hemsworth!” And yes, I am. But there is room for two white guys named Chris in my heart, and technically Chris Evans is the first because he continued my gay awakening in 2004 with that Flaunt magazine shoot. So I was fully aware that before Chris was wearing whipped-cream bikinis in Not Another Teen Movie or burning his clothes off in Fantastic Four man was also gigging it as Tyler, a surfer in the board game: Mystery Date. He’s a man of many talents.
God bless ya if you’ve been able to keep up with all the fucking Avengers running around here these days. Just looking at the poster for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame movie takes so much concentration. I keep thinking I’m supposed to eventually see a sailboat or some shit. It’s a mess, and it gives me a throbbing, Thanos’ dick-sized migraine. But the poster isn’t nearly as much of a mess as the red carpet for last night’s premiere of Avengers: Endgame: Too Many Spidermen. Not only was every Groot, Korg and Kraglin Obfonteri from the movies there, all the Marvel universe TV characters were there too. It must have been the least exclusive guest list to hit Hollywood since the premiere of Gotti. I mean, they even let Colin Jost in!
If the rumors are true, Captain America might not be alive and kicking after April 26th. So, his portrayer Chris Evans is finally going to have some shield-free time on his hands. Chris often gets poli-sci on Twitter (and slapfights racists) so it makes sense that he’s reportedly launching a political website with help from Congress, according to Mashable. President Evans in 2028? All the best presidents come from Massachusetts. (We don’t count H.W. because his family quickly moved to Connecticut after he was born.)
I have been rocking with Regina King ever since she played Brenda on 227 back in the day. My love for her only intensified when she voiced both Huey and Riley Freeman from my forever favorite series The Boondocks. However, last night she chalked the deuces up to whatever she played in before If Beale Street Could Talk because you can now add Academy Award Winner to her name after snagging the Best Supporting Actress award. And as you already know, King Regina is the master when it comes to acceptance speeches.
The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Scarlett Johansson is going to get a huge ton of cash for working on the standalone Black Widow movie which recently got its director. According to THR, Scarlett’s salary is equal to what the delicious Captain of America, Chris Evans, and what the hunky God of Thunder and Muscle Mass, Chris Hemsworth, were paid for Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok. Scarlett will be earning a grandios $15 million for playing Black Widow in her own movie.
