Michelle Rodriguez threatens to leave Fast & Furious if they don’t ‘show love to the women’ in next film

Show Full Article My heart doesn’t feel right doing this in front of millions of people, so I can always oblige myself and depart because money, to me, isn’t as important as my lines that you’re not allowed to cross.”
Universal Pictures, which co-produces and distributes the Fast and the Furious movies,   did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment. But on Tuesday, the actress announced on Instagram that she’s prepared to leave her highest profile role in the rearview if the next installment doesn’t bring women more into the spotlight. It's been a good ride & Im grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love 🤘🏼❤️🤗🙏🦄✨🌍🙊🤔
A post shared by Michelle Rodriguez (@mrodofficial) on Jun 27, 2017 at 8:43am PDT

While Fast & Furious boasts a deep and talented roster, the loss of Rodriguez would be a major blow. Over the years, the franchise has added more females to the male-dominated cast, including Gal Gadot, Charlize Theron, and Helen Mirren. That’s the only leverage I ever use with anything. It’s like, look, this doesn’t agree with my ethics, morals. “At the end of the day, the only leverage I have as an individual is my participation. For six Fast & Furious films, Michelle Rodriguez has starred as Letty Ortiz, Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) badass, ride-or-die love interest. 2013 fatal car accident and Jordana Brewster sitting out the last film, Rodriguez and Diesel are the last original cast members left. Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise. It’s been a good ride & Im grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love.”

F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one. “I think that’s pathetic and it’s lack of creativity.”

In Rodriguez’s refreshingly blunt interview with EW, she shared her frustration with not only women in action films as a whole, but specifically the billion-dollar series she stars in. With the late Paul Walker being written into retirement following his Nov. “F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one,” she wrote, along with pictures of her with Diesel and costar Nathalie Emmanuel. “It does weigh heavy on my head — especially in the male-dominated environment that I work in,” she said. But as Rodriguez noted in EW’s recent spotlight on the women of Fast & Furious, that doesn’t necessarily translate to passing the Bechdel test. “I’ve been making movies with Jordana, who plays the sister of Dom Toretto, for 16 years and I can count on one hand how many lines I’ve had to her,” she told EW. On the day The Fate of the Furious was released on Digital HD, the franchise has been dealt an ultimatum by one of its biggest stars. “Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise.

iZombie boss Rob Thomas is already dropping a bunch of season 4 spoilers

I never want to say that there’s no hope for them because I think that they would do anything for each other at any time. You will see them right away. I think Chase Graves says if just one in 10 Americans donate their brains, everything is fine and dandy. That sounds really timely and intense. We will not make you wait. Yes, there are going to be side effects. But we didn’t have to use it. I don’t want to imply that season 4 is going to be one long fight between Liv and Major because that won’t be the case. So if one in 10 Americans donates their brains, Seattle should be able to operate just fine. There’s still a lot of affection between the two and they’ll still be jokey and fun until they get on that one topic, and occasionally they will battle that out. are back on the air. They are wrong. Show Full Article Good. Can you talk about the decision to go there at this juncture? Much like the episode itself, Thomas did not disappoint; instead, he loaded us up with all kinds of season 4 details to help us through the long wait until Liv and co. With Major (Robert Buckley) in such a different headspace in this finale, it seems like we’re a long way from he and Liv getting back together, even though they’re both zombies now. ROB THOMAS: I really like thinking of each season as an enclosed story, like each one is a book in a series, and I’m so excited about what we can tell in season 4. So, essentially no sides want zombies to escape. Because, in the three months between the end of season 3 and season 4 begins, the U.S. I did the math on this. Now, are there going to be any side effects to Ravi making himself a guinea pig for his own zombie virus vaccination? But they are on opposite sides of a political divide as this season moves forward, and there are going to be some political wedge issues that are forcing them apart over the course of the season. That still seems like a pretty low percentage. SPOILER ALERT: This story contains plot details from Tuesday night’s season 3 finale of iZombie, titled “Looking for Mr. It’s going to be the topic that they can’t discuss without fighting. Is the government going to be rounding up zombies that leave Seattle? Bush-like situation, reading to schoolchildren as he receives news of Discovery Day reaching a violent head? She is the perfect person to help ask America for brains. So I sort of regret making fun of that moment. You will see those in episode 401. I think it’s important that the audience knows how it’s supposed to work. It’s like zombies and humans living together in West Berlin in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis. It sort of turns Seattle into this independent quasi-nuclear power: If zombies go flooding out of Seattle, they have the power to end the world, essentially. Both Fillmore-Graves and the U.S. Have you cast a fun cameo for that celebrity PSA? It’s in everyone’s best interest. I actually sat down and I don’t know how good my math is, but I did rough it out with death rates and tried to actually figure out how many brains they would need. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Even though we’ve been building to it all season, I was a bit surprised to see Discovery Day, the day when humans learned zombies are real, come so early in the series. In fact, episode 401, the first one back, because I want to illustrate it for the TV audience, we’re going to open on a montage of how the whole brain system works, starting with a guy dying, showing the brain harvesting, showing it going on a shipping container, showing it getting to Seattle, going to a brain processing plant, getting put into to a tube, going to a dispensary, going to a Zombie With a Brain card, and being consumed. That is going to put them at increasing odds. iZombie will return for a fourth season on The CW. There’s so many comparisons we’ve been using in the writers’ room. And, if you’re a zombie, brains are available in Seattle; rains are not available outside of Seattle unless you kill humans or grave-rob. I’ll tell you who we want to get: We want Laura Linney. Goodbrain, Part 2.”
“Don’t be a dick.”
Seeing as that was the last line of the season 3 finale of iZombie, we were prepared to use it back to showrunner Rob Thomas when he evaded our questions about what happens to our favorite members of the undead in the aftermath of Discovery Day and Liv (Rose McIver) scratching Ravi (Rahul Kohli), possibly turning him into a zombie. What will be the brain source in Seattle? And there’s going to be a No Man’s Land. RELATED VIDEO: How to Master the Art of the Television Twist

Getting back to this episode, I so enjoyed the platonic “I love you” exchange between Liv and Ravi, but I worry there are shippers out there who will cling to that. Yeah, the nod to a certain government official — we thought we were being cute, and now, I find myself longing for George Bush, wishing we could have George Bush back in the White House and remembering him fondly. Ha! Is there hope for them in season 4? government is going to wall off Seattle so it’s going to have that Berlin feeling. Major has found a home in Fillmore-Graves and Liv becomes in increasingly disenchanted with how Fillmore-Graves is run and what they are decreeing and how they manage the city. I don’t believe there’s any show in which zombies and humans live together in a city, and I think it’s going to be interesting. It did make us all laugh in the writers’ room at the time, allowing Peyton (Aly Michalka) to be the person who whispered in his ear, recreating that moment. In Seattle, Chase Graves (Jason Dohring) has told America, “Give us your brains.” And we’re going to start season 4 with a celebrity commercial reminding Americans to sign their brain donor cards. government would be working in conjunction to keep all zombies in Seattle. There’s a mutually assured destruction there. I’m excited to get to those stories…. [Laughs] Cheeky was exactly what we were going for…. I don’t know what you’re talking about. Can you talk about that cheeky scene showing Baracus (Kurt Evans) in a very George W.

Pretty Little Liars series finale: Who is A.D.?

The finale revealed that Mary Drake hadn’t just given birth to a secret child all those years ago. A.D. Sure, the name might not ring a bell, but you’ll definitely recognize the face, mostly because SHE IS SPENCER’S TWIN. Wren then helped arrange a meeting with Alex and Charlotte, and from there, Charlotte was the only family Alex had ever known. Spoiler alert: This post contains MAJOR spoilers from the series finale of Pretty Little Liars. So when Charlotte, Alex’s half-sister, was killed,   Alex took out her anger on the Liars by creating a game to torture them until she found out Mona was responsible for Charlotte’s death. And instead of having Charlotte’s death mark the end of something, it marked the beginning of A.D., or Uber “A,” if you prefer. When Charlotte DiLaurentis died, the Liars thought they’d seen the last of “A.” But much in the same way Charlotte took over the game after Mona, there was someone else waiting in the wings. She’d given birth to secret twins. For most of her life, Alex lived in London, until Wren discovered her and alerted her to the fact that she had a family. And in the show’s series finale, they revealed the truth. It was then that Alex became fascinated with Spencer, Charlotte, and all Rosewood had to offer. By the end of the series finale, Alex was in handcuffs, but more importantly…

Hugh Jackman will star as Gary Hart in Jason Reitman’s The Frontrunner

Hart foresaw the rising threat of Mideast terrorism and the diminishing of the Cold War, but he was blindsided by the incursion of tabloid TV journalism in the previously staid political media, which had typically looked the other way when it came to politicians’ personal lives. A notorious photo of the two of them at a yacht party, with her sitting on his lap and him wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the phrase “Monkey Business” (which was the name of the boat), annihilated any talk of policy or vision for the country. They previously worked together on Reitman’s upcoming motherhood drama Tully, out next April, which   reteams him with   Young Adult   duo Charlize Theron and Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody. Reitman tells EW the movie will explore the impact Hart’s candidacy “had on the evolving relationship between politics and the media.”
“Like anyone, I look at the political landscape right now and just wonder how we got here. It’s being produced independently by Aaron Gilbert (Fences),   Helen Estabrook (Whiplash),   and Reitman through Gilbert’s production company Bron Studios. Show Full Article There isn’t any one answer, but Matt Bai’s book about the Hart candidacy raised interesting questions and offered a thread I wanted to pull,” Reitman says. This is the question at the center of The Frontrunner, a new drama from director Jason Reitman that will star Hugh Jackman as former presidential candidate Gary Hart — the Democratic frontrunner in 1987 before news of an extramarital affair demolished his candidacy … and potentially denied the country of a   leader known for his compassion, intellect, and charisma. In his 1987 speech announcing the end of his candidacy, Hart foresaw a time when good politicians who were imperfect declined to run, and awful people who were good at creating skepticism and activating the worst in people rose to the fore. Did Gary Hart waste his shot at the presidency — or did America waste its chance of electing a wise but flawed man? “Too much of it is just a mockery, and if it continues to destroy people’s integrity and honor, then that system will eventually destroy itself.”
The Frontrunner is still casting other major roles, with plans to begin shooting in September. “We’re all going to have to seriously question the system for selecting our national leaders, for it reduces the press of this nation to hunters and Presidential candidates to being hunted,” Hart said. RELATED:   5 High-Grossing Page-to-Screen Adaptations

Hart was a Colorado senator who had a strong lead in the polls and an easy way with everyday voters when news reports broke about his affair with model Donna Rice. The film is based on the book   All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid by Matt Bai, who co-wrote the script with the Up in the Air and Young Adult filmmaker, and former Hillary Clinton spokesman Jay Carson, who is also a producer on House of Cards (and one of the inspirations for Ryan Gosling’s character in the 2011 political thriller Ides of March, based on a play by House of Cards creator Beau Willimon.) Jackman’s casting was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Nelson Mandela’s prison letters to be published by Liveright

Liveright acquired the rights to Mandela’s letters from the New Zealand-based publisher Blackwell & Ruth, which has a long association with   Mandela and the Nelson Mandela Foundation. “This collection of letters reminds us of the exceptional pressures on Nelson Mandela to succumb to a system which aimed to wipe him from the public consciousness and which expected him to die a prisoner,” Venter said in the announcement.

Norton & Co., announced Tuesday that it will publish Mandela’s extensive prison correspondence   in two separate editions: a single volume containing some 250 selected letters due in July 2018 (timed to the centenary of Mandela’s birth), and a more comprehensive two-volume collection to follow.

The Conjuring 3 is officially in the works

Watch the trailer for The Conjuring 2, above. “Jeez, I love the world, I love Patrick and Vera, and I have such a great relationship with New Line and Warner Bros., so the idea of coming back to that family is not a bad thing,” said the director. But I am quite busy potentially for the next couple of years. Entertainment Weekly has learned that David Leslie Johnson will write the script for The Conjuring 3. No one has yet been hired to direct The Conjuring 3 and last year Wan told EW that his busy schedule might preclude him from making the series’ third entry. The movie is the third entry in the series of horror films about real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, which dates back to 2013’s The Conjuring. Leslie also worked with Wan on the filmmaker’s upcoming Aquaman. Leslie’s previous writing credits include 2016’s The Conjuring 2, which, like the original The Conjuring, was directed by James Wan. In the first two films, the couple was played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. So, who knows if they’ll actually wait for me to come back and do another one?”

Bill Cosby says his town halls won’t be about sexual assault

“We’ll talk to young people because this is bigger than Bill Cosby,” Wyatt said. “This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today. Bill Cosby has issued a statement reversing comments by his publicists last week that indicated he was planning a series of town halls to discuss sexual assault and the legal system, while also blaming the media for spreading “propaganda” against him. And it also affects married men.”
Benson added, “Laws are changing. And they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things that they shouldn’t be doing. “The current propaganda that I am going to conduct a sexual assault tour is false,” said the statement, which was posted to the actor and comedian’s social media accounts Tuesday. “Any further information about public plans will be given at the appropriate time.”
Appearing on Good Morning Alabama last week, in the wake of Cosby’s sexual assault case ending in a mistrial, spokespersons   Andrew Wyatt and   Ebonee Benson strongly suggested that sexual assault would be a major topic of Cosby’s talks. The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended, so this is why people need to be educated on — a brush against a shoulder, anything at this point can be considered sexual assault, and it’s a good thing to be educated about the laws.”
Reached for comment about his remarks last week, Wyatt said in an email to EW that Cosby intended “to speak to young men and women about the judicial system,” including the notion that “people in the judicial system can use their powers to annul deals for personal agenda and political ambitions.” He added, “This is not a sexual assault tour.”

Rob Lowe recalls Bigfoot encounter: ‘I thought I was going to be killed’

I told them my boys and I had the idea to hunt urban legends, myths, and monsters [and we decided] to make a show. Did this show make you more of a believer? Show Full Article ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Did the idea to do this show always involve your sons? If, while watching Fox Mulder and Dana Scully’s various jaunts through the realm of the occult, you find yourself thinking, “Wow, I wish Rob Lowe and his adult children could do this, too,” A&E’s The Lowe Files is exactly what the (witch) doctor ordered. I’m excited to see this blow out [online] and see people be like, “Rob Lowe lost his mind!”
I do have to mention something about the wood ape. We’re 100 miles from the nearest town. I don’t hate-watch them, but I also don’t watch them as a total believer. You’re also exploring an alien base in the ocean and working with a shaman at an abandoned boys’ reformatory. I think it gives you a good sense of the tone. How many episodes before we get to see the wood ape!? Sadly for you, my good friend, the wood ape is in the one-hour season finale. If you call it a Bigfoot or a Sasquatch, they roll their eyes… as if that makes it less outrageous. It’s [instead] a father-son, guy, bro adventure. Yes! We hit the bullseye between true believer and skeptic in a fun way. I was lying on the ground thinking I was going to be killed. I’m fully aware that I sound like a crazy, Hollywood kook right now. A&E
Do we finally get to see what this thing is? When it’s all done, that’s all we’re left with. Take me back to everything you remember. This is what I love about our show. At one point I said, I bet someone will buy this and put it on the air. There are times I’m able to impart some wisdom to my boys, there are times they’re able to give me a totally different perspective. [Laughs] We have a whole bit in that episode: Any time you can say “wood ape,” you’re way ahead of the game in life. Particularly in today’s climate, it’s great to be reminded of our similarities, so that element of the show I love. The rest of [what we found I accepted on a] case-by-case basis, but we had an incredible encounter with what locals call the wood ape, which is in the Ozark Mountains. Were you genuinely terrified? It’s nostalgic, bittersweet, and a badass adventure. We captured some incredible [footage]. I’m glad you had that experience. A&E
I grew up watching Leonard Nimoy’s In Search Of… I loved it. We talked about it for years until I had a general meeting with A&E. Genuinely terrified? There are a lot of serious former military men with loaded weapons, then something starts approaching our camps that is defying their orders to stop and their warnings that [they were] armed. That’s so sweet. 2 on A&E. We spent 45 minutes on the most rugged, brutal mountain trails. Any time the phrase “Rob Lowe investigates wood apes” is in the zeitgeist, you know you’re in for a special treat. [These are] really cool, interesting, outrageous, literally unbelievable stories being investigated. People will see their own family dynamic played out here. EW’s exclusive first look at the new docuseries (above) teases the actor’s first foray into reality television, fronting a family affair that sees him traversing the country with his sons,   Matthew and John Owen, as they probe into a slew of mysterious phenomena — from the exploration of an underwater   alien base off the coast of Malibu to working with an esteemed shaman at Preston Castle, a reportedly haunted reformatory for boys — with curiosity, science, and a well-reared sense of humor (and the appropriate amount of skepticism as well). We have fun with all of this. Anything else you want to add? I believe there are probably ghosts out there. A wood ape is the local vernacular for a Sasquatch or a Bigfoot. I don’t want to oversell as a results-oriented show, although we have incredible results. I watch them hoping to believe, because a world in which Bigfoot exists and aliens exist, to me, is more interesting and fun. Not our money, not our awards, just the memories we’ve created, and this show speaks to that.We were able to carve out times from our busy lives. [The locals] talk to you about the wood ape in all seriousness. [Laughs]. Nothing is staged, nothing is trick-cut — no B.S. People always ask me what my guilty pleasure is on television, and my guilty pleasures are Ancient Aliens and Finding Bigfoot. ROB LOWE: My boys and I were going to do this on our own and film it with our little cameras for a laugh. It’s a case of the journey being as entertaining and fun as the destination. Some episodes we had incredible results, and others we just had incredible adventures, and that’s what’s great about it. If you put Anthony Bourdain in a blender with Scooby Doo, you’d get the tone of this show. We put it all on hold every weekend for eight weeks and did this together, and now we have these memories together. Tease that moment for me! Our first episode is about poltergeists in one of the most notoriously haunted structures in America. What exactly is a wood ape? Is the show going to be as delightfully out-there as those scenarios sound? Are you kidding me? Watch EW’s exclusive sneak peek at the project above, and read on for our full conversation with its central subject   — including a detailed account of his run-in with a wood ape. It’s bittersweet, funny, silly… that opening I did all myself.  
The Lowe Files premieres its first of nine episodes Wednesday, Aug. What was the dynamic like between you and your boys on the road? It’s 1 in the morning. People don’t spend enough time creating memories. Based on my experiences on the show, particularly around ghosts — absolutely. I don’t want to set up something we don’t deliver on all the time, because if everybody could go out and get great results on all of this, these stories and mysteries would all be solved. That’s the spirit of our show.

Today is the day. It taught me patience, and how to approach my craft, how to direct, produce, it taught me about collaboration, experimentation, risk, friendship, family, empathy, sacrifice and above all LOVE. Enjoy tonight. @SleepintheGardn owes these 7 years to you. In this bittersweet moment (and always), I am forever grateful for these 8 years. Little did we know, our lives were about to change drastically. And for a show that has dominated social media — so much so that it earned them a spot on the cover of Entertainment Weekly — the cast is doing what they’ve always done best: Sharing the love with their fans through Twitter. Numerous cast members are using social media to say thank you to the fans, goodbye to their characters, and goodbye to an important chapter in their lives. Life (for reasons that will continue to reveal themselves to me ) made me a Pretty Little Liar. You will always have a place in my heart. After seven seasons of countless mysteries, killer outfits, and of course, friendship, the Liars will say goodbye when the show airs its series finale tonight. Rosewood forever lives on and this is not goodbye. Thank you to all of our devoted fans for supporting us for 7 incredible seasons! Happy #PrettyLittleLiars Finale!! There are no words to describe this incredible journey, but I'll do my best. It all started with a lie, but it’s going to end with an outpouring of love. And I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the people who gave it to me. @TamminSursok loves you. It's been an honor! You don't want to miss tonight. Thanks to the cast, crew, and of course, the fans. It took me to days where I couldn't stop laughing, and nights when I wished I could have been sleeping in bed, instead of running in the wet and cold for the umpteenth take at 5AM but somehow we made it through and we had fun even then. You are forever family. Another big thank you to @freeform of course! But, I will leave it as pure love. When I left collage I thought I was headed to NYC (hopefully for some jobs on stage) Little did I know life was actually taking me to Rosewood, Pennsylvania. It still hurts my soul to not see you every day. pic.twitter.com/hDThinyKp0
— I. I will hold each of these girls close to my heart always, as I will Emily. For around 10,000 hours of my life it asked me to be Spencer Hastings. For me to be speechless says a lot, but I'm finding it hard to find the words to express my gratitude to every single person that made this show a success. For 8 years. Can't wait to watch with my @PLLTVSeries family all together. I could go on forever! When we cried you cried, when we laughed you laughed, when we were scared you were scared, when we were mad you were mad, and when we loved you loved. To our amazing fans I am most definitely forever grateful. Thank you and I love you all very much.

She later added: “I don’t know her, I’ve never met her or interacted with her in any capacity, so I thought it was a bit of a strange thing to kind of throw that out there.” (“I don’t know her,” of course, was made famous by Mariah Carey when an interviewer asked the diva about Jennifer Lopez, with whom she’s long been rumored to have a feud.)

Ansel Elgort cast as young JFK in Mayday 109

“We could not be more excited about Ansel coming aboard,” Iwanyk told Deadline Hollywood, which first reported the news. In addition to starring, Elgort will   produce alongside Basil Iwanyk, Beau Flynn, and Emily Gerson Saines. EW has confirmed that the   Baby Driver star is set to   play a young John F. “Not only is he a tremendous actor, he embodies the charisma, athleticism and looks of a young JFK.”

Okja on Netflix will amaze you and then gross you out

Props to Netflix and all, but if you can, go and see it on a big screen. Of course, altruism is the last thing on Lucy’s mind. Maybe that’s why so many visionary directors are defecting to cable channels (David Lynch’s Twin Peaks on Showtime) and streaming services (Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down on Netflix) rather than being defanged by the studio system. But the plucky Mija isn’t going to let her porcine playmate go without a fight. But he doesn’t always seem in total control of all of his story’s competing tones. by The Weinstein Company—an indie company, sure, but in its own way just as skittish as any major. B

Show Full Article They swim under waterfalls, frolic in the mossy green forest, and nuzzle and nap together. Swinton, who also hid beneath bizarre drag in Bong’s Snowpiercer, plays Lucy Mirando—the Orwellian CEO of a Monsanto-like agrochemical multinational called the Mirando Corporation. South Korea’s Bong Joon-ho learned this lesson the hard way on his 2013 movie, Snowpiercer. Mainstream cinema seems to be getting less and less hospitable to filmmakers with original voices. The clear winner of the contest, Okja is ripped away from Mija and taken to Seoul then New York City for his big coronation. Plagued by bad PR, Lucy wants to rebrand her company by launching a worldwide contest for farmers across the globe to breed 26 Chilean “super piglets” that will be cheaper to raise and will help solve the world’s food shortages. As with his fantastic 2006 monster mash-up The Host, Bong knows how to sneak a bigger allegorical message into his manic whirligig celluloid contraption—Okja feels like Fast Food Nation as directed by Terry Gilliam with The Smiths’ Meat is Murder playing on the soundtrack. But don’t let that thumbnail synopsis fool you, we’re galaxies away from the kid-friendly entertainments of Babe and Charlotte’s Web here. The presence of Tilda Swinton in a platinum wig, pink lipstick, and braces on her teeth is the first tip-off. That film, one of the greatest and most gonzo statements in recent memory, was distributed in the U.S. We also meet Okja—a bulldozer-sized behemoth who looks more like a hippo than a pig. A beloved, hyper-caffeinated TV zoologist named Johnny Wilcox (Jake Gyllenhaal letting loose—maybe too loose—with a helium-pitched Minnie Mouse voice), signs on to silence critics. Prepare to be amazed, grossed out, provoked, punchdrunk, and tickled. But after critics got a peek at it, the response was so positive that they backed off. Idiosyncrasy doesn’t sell apparently. It’s the antithesis of cookie-cutter, made-by-committee filmmaking. Some sequences work a lot better than others (and some just don’t work at all). But the moviegoing world is a better place with Okja in it. On its surface, Okja is a sweet, heartwarming fable about a young girl and her pet pig. The 26 super piglets are shipped off to 26 small farmers in 26 countries, where they’ll be raised for 10 years until the biggest, fattest, most succulent swine is deemed the winner. Not mentioned is what will then happen to said “winner.”
Skip forward 10 years, and we meet a button-cute teenage orphan girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-hyeon), who lives with her grandfather in the peaceful and remote mountains of South Korea. Along the way, Okja gets kidnapped by a nonviolent and exceedingly polite (and cartoonishly inept) group of ecoterrorists led by Paul Dano, who has his own agenda for the pig. Then one day, Gyllenhaal and the Mirando team pay a visit to check on their mammoth super pig. He’s out to expose Mirando’s nefarious practices, which leads to a madcap pig rampage in a Korean shopping mall (scored to John Denver’s “Annie’s Song”) and ultimately a gory glimpse inside Mirando’s nightmarish rendering plant. Is Oka a perfect film? So maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that for his follow-up, the dizzying fantasia Okja, Bong’s planted his freak flag at Netflix—a deep-pocketed patron that wouldn’t mess with his vision. No, not by a long shot. Still, there are so many moments of insane weirdness and warmth, it’s hard to get too riled up about it. (Maybe it’s worth noting here that although the film is about a girl and her pig and isn’t rated, it’s most definitely not for kids). Mija and Okja are best friends. With his gray elephant skin, flopsy hound-dog ears, and doe eyes, he’s an expressive CGI wonder who breaks wind in hurricane gusts of flatulence. After seeing the finished film, the Weinsteins wanted to hack about 20 minutes from Bong’s masterpiece.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders slams Trump media coverage during contentious briefing

If we make the slightest mistake, if the slightest word is off, it’s just an absolute tirade from a lot of people in this room. On Monday night, three CNN journalists resigned after the network was forced to retract a story it had done about possible ties between Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci and a Russian investment fund, which turned out to be false. https://t.co/ZxEEe6e31P

After the briefing, Karem posted on Twitter, “So, when we are wrong we correct ourselves but when has POTUS ever done that? So the Tuesday briefing was held on-camera, overseen by Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders — but it wasn’t any less contentious. This entire exchange at the WH briefing. Wow. We’re here to ask questions, you’re here to provide the answers, and what you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who look at it and say ‘see, once again, the President is right, and everybody else is fake media.’ But everyone in this room is only trying to do their job.”
Watch the full exchange below. If any one of us doesn’t get it right, the audience has the chance to turn the channel or not read us. We are not FAKE news. The context to this flare-up is what happened in between the two briefings. Karem (@BrianKarem) June 27, 2017

Show Full Article Must watch. We are not FAKE news.”

So, when we are wrong we correct ourselves but when has POTUS ever done that? This has indeed proved a difficulty for journalists covering the Trump administration’s Russia scandal; as   The Intercept‘s Glenn Greenwald pointed out, CNN is far from the first news outlet to retract or correct an anonymous story about Trump and Russia in recent months. You mentioned the Scaramucci story, where they had to have reporters resign.”
This prompted a passionate response from Karem. “I think a lot of those things deserve a lot more coverage than they get. But news outlets get to go on, day after day, and cite unnamed sources, use stories without sources. — Brian J. When asked about Trump’s tweets at the briefing, Sanders replied that media should cover more subjects than just Trump’s Russia scandal. President Donald Trump took the opportunity to once more mock CNN on Twitter for being “fake news” and suggested that rival networks like   NBC, CBS, and ABC were just as fraudulent. At one point, Sanders got into a heated back-and-forth with reporter Brian Karem about the Trump administration’s attitude towards the media. All we’re saying is we should take a really good look at what we are focused on, what we are covering, and make sure it’s accurate and honest. “Come on, you’re inflaming everybody right here and right now with those words,” Karem said. She noted that many such stories (including CNN’s retracted Scaramucci piece) rely on anonymous sources. “I think there are a lot of things happening in this world that people would like to hear about, whether it’s deregulation, tax reform, health care,” Sanders said. When the White House chose to hold its press briefing off-camera on Monday, it sparked more criticism from reporters like CNN’s Jim Acosta. You have been elected to serve for four years at least, there’s no option other than that. “This administration has done that as well.

Show Full Article Move over, George Clooney and Anderson Cooper — there’s a new silver fox in town. When the former   The Office   star debuted a new look in London last week while promoting   Despicable Me 3,   he nearly broke the internet. One fan wrote, “Steve Carell is hot and you can’t convince me otherwise,” while another declared, “Honestly take your Goslings and your Zayns Malik and give me 2017 Steve Carell.”
When   Entertainment Tonight told Carell about his new status as a Hollywood hottie, the actor took the news in stride, joking, “I am so sick of people just looking at me for my physical attributes. Carell told ET, “I think she’s hot and that’s all that matters.”
See a sample of responses to Carell’s makeover below. What does she think about all this internet attention? That’s very nice.”
There’s one person who’s always known Carell is a catch — his wife and producing partner Nancy Carell. Steve Carell has a new role in Hollywood — that of distinguished heartthrob. It’s just genetic. Fans went crazy for his grayer head of hair, dapper sweater ensemble, and trendy sneakers. Twitter responses to Carell’s new look included references to his character’s makeover by Ryan Gosling in 2011’s   Crazy Stupid Love   and comparisons to George Clooney. There’s nothing I can do.”
Though he responded with his trademark dry humor, Carell also seemed genuinely tickled by the attention his new look is getting, adding, “I’m busting with pride.
