Billy Eichner may have seen this news and relaxed after calling out the Straights™ for not buying tickets to his gay romantic comedy Bros, which bombed at the box office. Because well, David O’Russell‘s Amsterdam bombed hard too. The star-studded film had a production budget of $80 million but only made $6.5 million at this past weekend’s box office. It did worse in theatres than Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.
If you haven’t watched Netflix’s crazy show Squid Game yet, please don’t. Unless you want your childhood ruined and endless nightmares waking up in a cold sweat screaming “GREEN LIGHT!” because that shit is dark. Still, the show has been highly successful and birthed many memes and parodies. And Saturday Night Live got into Squid Game mania last night in the form of a country music video featuring guest host Rami Malek and Pete Davidson.
You know the British Royal Family is pressed for some good PR because they have risked the very fabric of the monarchy by sending 4 of their highest ranking members to a movie premiere. And the movie is fucking cursed! I guess they’re running low on Egyptian antiquities to pilfer and instead decided to tempt the gods by sending Princes Charles and William, and Duchesses Camilla and Kate to go rub elbows with the Hollywood hoi polloi at the London premiere of No Time To Die, the James Bond movie that was supposed to have come out in 2019 and make Ana de Armas a star. And here we are, 2 years and 200 pap strolls later, and neither of those things has happened!
Like every Hollywood event, the 2020 Golden Globes offered for us peasants a plethora of fashion delights and disasters to witness and froth over. Outfits ranged from: Classic Elegance to Fancy Prostitute. Who won and lost the night is debatable but one thing is for sure: 97% of these clothes are being returned to whatever designer loaned it to the celebrity for a night. You think rich folk keep or pay for award gowns and jewels? LOL! No.
Trailerpalooza this week, huh? The people over at MGM must have known Black Widow was coming with her trailer and wanted to show Marvel that they ain’t the only ones with diversity up in the house. You have an Asian-Transgender-Tree Russian spy, Marvel? Well, MGM will give you Lashana Lynch as a 00 agent. But the trailer doesn’t totally confirm the rumor that Lashana Lynch will make heads pop off by taking over as 007.
You know how in theater folklore when everyone in a play loses their shit if you say “Macbeth” out loud, because it supposedly causes bad luck demons to ruin the play? Someone must have triggered the James Bond equivalent of the “Macbeth” curse (maybe someone said “Pussy Galore?”) because that set is cursed! The set is now a LITERAL shit show seeing as they reportedly arrested a guy for planting a toilet camera in the women’s loo on the set.
