This live-action Barbie movie has taken more twists and turns than the waist of a Twist n’ Turn Barbie. First Mattel was working with Sony on a live-action Barbie movie written by and starring Amy Schumer. Amy Schumer dropped out because of a scheduling conflict. Then Anne Hathaway was in talks, and eventually the role of Barbie went to Margot Robbie, with Patty Jenkins possibly directing. And now there’s a new development, and it’s 100% more random.
Quentin Tarantino’s take on Helter Skelter, aka Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, was the buzziest movie at Cannes and continues to be, especially since preview-goers realized that the Manson Family’s most famous victim, Sharon Tate played by Margot Robbie, is barely in it and says even less. Tarantino rejects that hypothesis but did pay Margot’s presence some lip service as being an angel ghost or some bullshit. That does make sense. Because she’s supposedly next to invisible in the movie just like an angel or a ghost.
Don’t Ask Quentin Tarantino About How Little Screen Time Margot Robbie Gets In “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which honestly should be a Cinderella reboot starring the Queen of Hollywood Angelyne, premiered at Cannes yesterday, where it got a 7-minute standing ovation. Although, it feels like at Cannes, audiences are either giving standing ovations or booing a bitch. The reviews for Quentin Tarantino’s take on the Manson murders are in, and the ones I’ve read are mostly positive, but do say that the gory and “provocative” ending will DIVIDE THE COUNTRY even more. Let me guess, Sharon Tate survives and brutally gets revenge. Kill Charlie!
No, that doesn’t happen, because it would mean that Margot Robbie, who plays Sharon Tate, gets plenty of screen time. But apparently, she doesn’t and barely has any lines compared to her co-stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. At a press conference for the movie, QT was asked why Margot Robbie doesn’t talk much in the movie. And QT didn’t talk much while giving his response.
Foot fetishists rejoice (podophobiacs recoil)! Unlike in the previous trailer, Foot Fucker In Chief Quentin Tarantino paid lipservice to your kink and shoehorned a pair of plump N’ grubby Flintstone feet into the new full length trailer for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. And everybody, footsuckers included, can breathe a sigh of relief because the feet in question don’t belong to Lena Dunham. As far as we know, the only naked Dunham moment in this production was the time she lifted her skirt and gave William Bradley Pitt the scare of his life. And as we know, Brad don’t scare easy.
Variety has published a list of the top earning celebrities for 2019 and Martin Lawrence is sitting pretty at the big boys’ (and girls, and Tommy Girl’s) table. And no, I’m not talking about that Martin Lawrence, I’m talking about original recipe Martin Lawrence. Thanks to his Bad Boys For Life co-star Will Smith, Martin Fitzgerald Lawrence out-earned Academy Award nominees Jessica Chastain and Joaquin Phoenix. The three-time Kid’s Choice nominee was paid $6 million for reprising his role in the Bad Boys 3-sequel. I guess that creepy genie really can make wishes come true!
The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s 9th movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (alternate title based on the picture above: Leo Smells A Fart), has arrived. The good news is that it looks like QT may have taken our notes and decided not to use the N-word in every other sentence in this one. I guess the only way for him to avoid that was to not write any black characters (as far as I could tell from looking at IMDB) at which to hurl it. I guess Samuel L. Jackson has finally had enough now that he’s stacking up all those shiny Marvel coins.
