Emma Watson Explains Why She Took A Break From Acting
Back in 2018, Emma Watson broke up with her acting career after falling out of love with the profession she’s been a part of since she was a wee wizard in Harry Potter– adding her to the growing list of stars who decided to explore new territories outside of acting and transition to civilian-hood. Her last role was in 2019’s Little Women, and she really didn’t do press for it, so what happened?! Besides, Emma Watson’s American accent getting dragged across the internet.
HBO Max, I Mean, “Max,” Released A Teaser Trailer For “The Batman” Spin-Off Series “The Penguin” Starring Colin Farrell
Yesterday, Warner Bros. Discovery officially announced that next month, HBO Max will merge with Discover Plus and become just MAX. That is a smart branding move since they’re erasing a brand name (HBO) that most people know well and replacing it with the name of every other neighborhood dog on your block. Max will launch on May 13th, and prices will range from $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year for a subscription with ads to $19.99 a month or $199.99 a year for the ultimate 4k ad-free subscription. Max (ugh, that name) also announced new shows, including that Harry Potter series, and served up trailers for their upcoming shows. That includes a little teaser for Matt Reeves’ The Batman spin-off series The Penguin, starring Colin Farrell continuing to fight the hot under forty-five tons of wrinkly prosthetics.
“Harry Potter” May Get Rebooted As A Series For HBO Max
Today in Hollywood Is Repeating Shit, Again news: the immensely successful Harry Potter may be getting a reboot series at HBO. The last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, was released in 2011. I guess Warner Bros. feels like a little over a decade is enough time to reboot the entire damn thing because that’s what they’re reportedly looking to do. And they’re trying to bring JK Rowling on as a producer. If the series happens and JK Rowling signs on, that means she may do press for the show. Well, I guess HBO Max executives all own stock in Tylenol since this could be one big giant PR headache disaster.
Open Post: Hosted By Daniel Radcliffe And Erin Darke Announcing That They’re Expecting Their First Baby
Maybe Daniel Radcliffe’s Equus peen party didn’t work to decrease the frequency with which he’s been referred to as “hey, Harry Potter!” rather than his given name over the years, but his peen DID work to make a baby with his long-time love, Erin Darke. The couple of over a decade just announced they have a baby on the way!

“Fantastic Beasts 3” Had The Lowest Opening Box Office Of Any “Harry Potter” Movie To Date
Pour one out for J.K. Rowling, whose cup used to runneth over with cash, but now merely dribbles over with cash in slightly smaller denominations. Variety reports that Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, the third film in the FB franchise, has opened to the lowest box office debut of any Harry Potter related movie to date. And by “pour one out” I mean, empty the rest of whatever swill you were drinking before cause we’re popping bubblies! Because even if J.K. is just $1 poorer for it, haha, serves her right. We may not be able to “cancel” her, in the modern sense of the word, but at least we can act a little smug about the fact that FB3 only made “a muted $43 million” in its domestic box office debut, down from $74M and $62M made by its 2 predecessors. At this rate, by the time Fantastic Beasts 8: The Menstruating Machlyes comes out, she’s going to be so poor she can’t even afford free speech!
