Brighter Pap Pics Of Ariana Grande As Glinda In “Wicked” Are Here After Fans Complained That The Official Teaser Pics Were Too Dark
Jon M. Chu is directing the movie adaptation of Broadway’s Wicked and recently shared teaser pics of Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba and Ariana Grande as Glinda. But just like the live-action Little Mermaid trailer and several episodes of Game of Thrones (except that one where ye olde Starbucks was clearly illuminated) that came before it, many fans complained that the images were too dark and worried that the whole film got the trendy dark Hollywood treatment. But Jon followed up and assured everyone that the finished product (part one will be released in November 2024, and part two in 2025) won’t be devoid of color, and then conveniently, pap pics of a brightly lit Ariana/Glinda surfaced shortly after.
The producers of The Super Mario Bros. Movie knew what they were doing when they decided to release the film over the Easter holiday weekend. And their genius planning has resulted in both Mario and Luigi taking in a huge payday at the box office with a whopping $205 million during its US premiere, despite its bad reviews (it’s certified Rotten!). So apparently, Chris Pratt wasn’t lying when he said he was going to do Mario’s character justice. Maybe all of his films should be animated from now on since that’s the only way many can tolerate him.
A Radio DJ Who Worked Security On The Set Of “The Love Guru” Said Mike Myers Had Him Fired For Making Eye Contact
2008 was a notably awful year. People ran around wearing shutter shades and Uggs with miniskirts as “Lollipop” played on a loop in our brains while the entire financial system collapsed. The 2008 bar was on the ground, but we could almost all agree (or all of the 10s of people who’ve sat through it) that The Love Guru starring Mike Myers was a corny, unfunny turd, as evidenced by its 13% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and several Razzie Awards. The Love Guru made The Cat In The Hat look like Citizen Kane. But apparently, Mike took his time on set very seriously; because a Canadian radio DJ named Jay Brody says he was hired to work as set security but was fired four hours into his first day for accidentally making eye contact with Mike.
Jennifer Lopez can feel pleased with her performance after last night’s LA premiere of her husband Ben Affleck’s Nike x Michael Jordan sneaker movie, Air. But, not because she found another enormous compound they’re going to enter into escrow on only to immediately back out, but because she won the supportive spouse wars by making it the entire evening without scowling at a camera, Jane Fonda-ing Ben for not looking “friendly and motivated,” or taste-testing one of his drinks! Even better? She and Ben briefly touched lips and engaged in some ass grabbins on the red carpet. Contentious battle for that $64 million mansion who?
Will Smith Did A “Red Table Talk Takeover” And Discussed Dropping Weight After His Dad Bod Went Viral And Getting Unexpectedly Spat On By One Of His “Emancipation” Co-Stars
Most people who put the smackdown on someone on stage at a formal televised public event forever immortalized on the internet for millions and millions to gawk at for eternity might consider taking a beat (heyyo!) to fade into the background and self-reflect without a mistrustful audience. Will Smith isn’t “most people,” though, and recently he’s been trying to make Will Smith happen again by crying on The Daily Show and now doing a Red Table Talk takeover as he tries to snatch that Oscar for his upcoming film, Emancipation. And though Will isn’t even allowed to attend an Oscar ceremony for the next decade if he does snag a nomination, he talked about the extreme measures he took for the role, which included losing weight after a 2021 picture of his dad bod went viral and getting surprise-spat on by one of his co-stars.
James Bond Producers Are Looking For The Next 007 And Need Someone Who Can Make A Ten-Year Commitment
As 2021’s No Time To Die marks Daniel Craig’s exit as the latest iteration of lethal Lothario James Bond (“allegedly“) we can all prepare for another sexy brooding Englishman disarming bombs and unhooking bras in the name of THE QUEEN (though that may all change since she has gone to glory). But before any of that happens, the producers behind the exciting espionage life of Agent 007, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, want to make sure they take meticulous care in choosing the next actor for the role, since whoever steps into it will be on the hook for at least the next decade.
