It was everyone’s low-key worry, right? That after A Wrinkle in Time merely whelmed, Ava DuVernay would not get the same second (third, fourth, fifth) chance that her white male peers get to go on and make another blockbuster, like, say, Zack Snyder who made a divisive Superman movie and then went on to make two more divisive Superman movies. Full Story

Scott Eastwood and John Boyega are starring in Pacific Rim Uprising together and I thought the press tour would go one of two ways. One, Scott Eastwood’s perma-doucheness would infiltrate John Boyega’s general perfect ray-of-sunshine-ness or two, by some miracle, John Boyega would make Scott Eastwood somewhat likeable by proxy. Full Story

Constance Wu was in New York yesterday promoting Fresh Off The Boat and, the photo agency caption says, Crazy Rich Asians. They’re starting to do early press for the movie. Kevin Kwan, the author of the book series, posted this shot on Instagram from the end of February with several members of the cast, including Constance:    A post shared by Kevin Kwan (@kevinkwanbooks) Full Story

After approximately 97 years of waffling, the 25th Bond movie is a go. It’s slated for November 2019, Daniel Craig is returning—presumably with his own Scrooge McDuck vault of gold since he said if he did another Bond it would “only be for the money Full Story

In Defense of A Wrinkle in Time

It has been just over two weeks since I saw A Wrinkle in Time. It was a press screening, which usually means I’m sitting alone being extra all by myself. But this time, my best friend Liz –who works with Lainey at etalk – was sitting beside me. We laughed. We cried. We LIVED. We loved A Wrinkle in Time. Full Story

Tomb Raider doesn’t suck

Tomb Raider wants to be Indiana Jones but ends up more The Mummy (the good Rachel Weisz one, not the dumb Tom Cruise one). That’s not an insult—The Mummy is a good f*cking adventure movie. But The Mummy also doesn’t take itself seriously, and you can tell Tomb Raider has some Aspirations, because it’s a little too serious in tone for a movie about a girl who is really good at jumping and solving rock puzzles on a magic island. Full Story

This Is Life Itself

Dan Fogelman is the showrunner for This Is Us. Season 2 of This Is Us just wrapped last night and Kathleen is probably still crying so the timing was perfect for the trailer premiere of Fogelman’s new film, Life Itself, opening in September, around festival season which, perhaps, means it’ll try to contend for some awards next year. Full Story
