The premiere for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was held last night in Los Angeles, and it’s not exactly a surprise that Angelina Jolie would be there. You know, since she’s the second-billed star (I’m pretty sure her cheekbones get top billing). And Angelina decided to bring a plus one, plus two, plus three, plus four, and plus five in the form of her kids Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, Zahara, and Knox. It’s pretty clear that Angelina didn’t circulate a family-wide text beforehand about who would be wearing what, otherwise Zahara wouldn’t have shown up looking like Maleficent’s even more diabolically dramatic replacement that was recruited from an evil finishing school. That scorpion looks like it’s about to hand in its notice and go to work on Zahara’s dress.
Elle Fanning is currently making the rounds at Cannes because she’s serving on the Cannes jury (the youngest person to do so, ever). That means she’s also got about 1.5 million costume changes to cover while she’s there, and not all of those are going to be winners. Best case scenario, your bad fashion will land you on a worst dressed list. Worst case scenario, it lands you on your ass because your dress was pulled too tight for your organs to function.
Angelina Jolie And Her Prosthetic Cheekbones Are Back In The Teaser Trailer For “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil”
Angelina Jolie’s vindictive demon hell-bent on revenge is back! “Pfft, some might say she never left” scoffed Brad Pitt to himself, I’m sure. Disney released the first official teaser trailer for Maleficent 2 yesterday. As we already knew, it’s actually called Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which still sounds like a less-interesting, lawsuit-dodging rip-off of Elvira: Mistress of the Dark. Now we get to see Angelina’s Maleficent in action once again. Careful you don’t cut yourself on those cheekbones, they’re just as sharp as you remember.
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.
Elle Fanning and actor/director Max Minghella might be a thing. Last year, Elle posted the above photo of the pair rocking matching sweatpants while filming Teen Spirit together back in August 2017, and this week People‘s got strong evidence of their alleged coupledom by way of a photo of Max wearing sweatpants while strolling with Elle around London.
Based on this sweatpants heavy photojournalism, we can deduce much, as there’s only a few reasons people should wear sweatpants out in public, such as taking out the rubbish and buying scratch tickets. So according to expert analysis, it looks like Elle and Max have already reached sweatpants levels of post-romantic status. Read what People has to say and you decide. Continue reading
There are Hollywood types who would get the dry heaves and hiss “hard pass” if their agents were to suggest working on a project with Woody Allen. And then there are others, who are like “What repeat allegations of repulsive pedo behavior? Sign me up!” The list is shockingly long, and it’s got a couple new names to add to it.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Selena Gomez has signed on to Woody Allen’s next project for Amazon Studios. She joins a cast that also includes Elle Fanning and Timothée Chalamet (from Call Me by Your Name). Nothing else about the film is known, like if Woody Allen scrapped the usual contract and asked Selena to agree to the film by signing his favorite issue of V Magazine instead.
Woody’s latest movie with Amazon Studios, Wonder Wheel (aka the movie starring Justin Timberlake and Kate Winslet), is set to premiere at the New York Film Festival in October. This next film will probably get underway after all of that.
Selena has said recently she can’t wait to be not famous. She picked the wrong project if privacy is what she’s after. You don’t exactly fly under the radar when you sign on to work with Hollywood’s creepy uncle. But I’m sure her publicist has already prepared for it. Like asking Kristen Stewart’s publicist for tips on navigating those awkward conversations about choosing to work with Woody. And maybe her publicist can hire a gag-suppression coach to help Selena through the awkward part of the press tour where Woody inevitably grosses everyone out by admitting he cast her after watching her on his second favorite Disney Channel show, Wizards of Waverly Place.
