Here Are The Trailers For Disney’s Live-Action “The Little Mermaid,” “Hocus Pocus 2,” And “Disenchanted”
Mickey Mouse probably lived it up last night by popping bottles and making it rain Disney dollars on twerking mice at Disneyland’s Club 33. Because the trailers for several movies that are going to make his greedy ass even richer were released. D23 Expo, the event where Disney drops trailers and info for their upcoming projects, is happening this weekend in Anaheim, CA. And yesterday, Disney released the teaser trailer for its live-action The Little Mermaid, and full trailers for Hocus Pocus 2 and the Enchanted sequel called Disenchanted. There was also an appearance by one of Disenchanted‘s stars, Patrick Dempsey, who served snow daddy realness.
There’s an upcoming book about the behind-the-scenes drama of Grey’s Anatomy, entitled, How to Save a Life: The Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s written by Entertainment Weekly’s Lynette Rice, and there’s already talk (in this very post) that she’ll sweep the Pulitzers, the Booker Prizes, and the Gossipy Biotch Awards. Sorry, super-serious authors of ~literature~, this ain’t your year!
The book spills tea about Patrick Dempsey’s 2015 exit from the show. There have always been rumors that Dr. McDreamy got killed off cuz Patrick was a diva and Shonda Rimes hated him. But now we have actual confirmation from executive producer James D. Parriott, who was brought back to the series to oversee Patrick’s exit. James says that Patrick got fired due to non-sexual “HR issues.” Apparently, he was terrorizing the set, and “some cast members had all sorts of PTSD with him.” James adds that Shonda and Patrick were at each other’s throats, Ellen Pompeo was frustrated over his constant complaining about long hours, and he “didn’t like the inconvenience of coming in every day and working.” Bitch, welcome to the club!

Ellen Pompeo was recently interviewed by someone else who is very familiar with on-set drama, Taraji P. Henson, for Variety. Taraji – who will have spent six seasons playing Cookie Lyon on Empire by the time it ends next year – asked Ellen how she managed to clock in every day for 15 seasons. The quick answer would be: a check. But Ellen says there were moments she wanted “off this bus” and says the Grey’s Anatomy of today is way better than when Grey’s Anatomy fist started shooting. Yeah, that’s not exactly a revelation for anyone with any tabloid knowledge of Grey’s early years.
In case you didn’t know, Ellen Pompeo is that bitch. She recently signed an insane deal to become the highest paid woman in dramatic television. She’s on a little show called Grey’s Anatomy which I will admit to still watching after 14 seasons. And that’s real seasons as in years, not one of Tyra’s little “cycles”. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter (which is worth a full read), Ellen talks about the long, hard road she walked to get more than$20 million a year. You won’t be surprised to learn that is was no thanks to Patrick Dempsey.
TMZ says that the status of Patrick Dempsey’s marriage has been upgraded from “critical” to “stable.”
Almost 22 months ago, Patrick’s wife Jillian Dempsey got tired of him being a dick and filed divorce papers to end their (then) 15-year marriage. Then a year ago, there was word that they put off plans to divorce. Cupid must have replaced his arrows with Spanish Fly-dipped blow darts and paid Patrick and Jillian a couple extra visits between then and now, because she has recently filed documents asking for her divorce petition to be dismissed. TMZ says a week after she filed, a court threw the divorce out. So Patrick and Jillian are officially not splitting up.
Patrick and Jillian have three kids together, so this also means there will be no messy custody fight. Jillian has been dropping hints they’re still together by posting pictures of Patrick on Instragram.
But what brought them back together? I assumed that their reunion was the result of Patrick reforming his asshole attitude after receiving a reality check in the form of getting killed off Grey’s or successfully passing Jillian’s on-set side piece sniff test. TMZ says it came down to Patrick keeping a promise he made not to spend so much time racing cars. Well, that’s just great for Patrick and Jillian. Sadly, this also means there’s a whole bunch of heartbroken race cars out there who are weeping motor oil tears over the news that Patrick has chosen his wife over them. Even though he swore he was getting a divorce. Those poor cars. And don’t tell me those cars don’t care. I’ve seen Pixar’s Cars, I know cars have feelings.
The last Bridget Jones’ movie came out over 11 years ago, but because the “crying lonely tears on a log of raw cookie dough after a break-up” set will throw their money at a third movie, a third movie has been shot and the one-time master squinter formerly known as Squinty Zellweger debuted the first trailer on Ellen today. As anyone who has been following this shit knows, they threw out the plot of the third Bridget Jones book and did a new story based on the columns that author Helen Fielding wrote for The Independent in 2005.
In Bridget Jones’s Baby, Bridget is still an awkward klutz, but now she’s a 40-year-old awkward klutz who is knocked up with a Maury baby. Bridget doesn’t know if the dude who raw-dogged a baby into her womb is her ex-husband (yeah ex) Mark Darcy or a hot billionaire piece played by Patrick Dempsey. Bridget tells both of them that they’re the father and HIJINKS (including HIJINKS involving Dr. Emma Thompson) ensue! I know, Bridget Jones really needs a shameless gold digger friend in her life to advise her that she needs to tell Patrick Dempsey that he’s really the father, and if the baby comes out looking like Darcy in the face, take the baby on a long-visit to her mom’s house (read: take the baby to get back alley plastic surgery to look like Patrick Dempsey in the face). Heather Mills would’ve played the role of the gold digger friend flawlessly. What a missed opportunity!
And I’m really surprised that the UK hasn’t announced that they’re experiencing a Vaseline shortage, because it’s obvious that every jar was smeared on all of the camera lenses while making this.
