Cillian Murphy's head was glued shut on the 'Oppenheimer' sets

Actress Emily Blunt shared that the ‘Oppenheimer’ star Cillian Murphy smashed his head open in a bizarre way. The actor was injured while fluffing a pillow she gave him to help him sleep while shooting the film. Blunt, Murphy, and Robert Downey Jr were all on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ reports deadline.com. She said: “I just felt (what) Cillian needed, even more than food, was sleep on this movie. So I got him this very beautiful pillow that I’m obsessed with … it’s a Hastens pillow. “He was really luxuriating in this pillow one night, and he woke up in the middle of the night — this is what he told me the next day — And he went to fluff himself back down in the pillow, misjudged where it was, and smashed his head open on the bedside table." “So he came to work, and they had to glue his head shut!” said Blunt. Murphy replied: “I was a bit shocked you know! I was having a great sleep, and I had this amazing pillow, strange bed, strange table, (and) bang.” He then went on to share that the movie’s make-up artist helped mend the wound, reports deadline.com. “We were getting up at before it was bright, like at 2 a.m. or something, 3 a.m.,” he said. “So I called her then, and I just came in, and then she glued my head, and covered it all up, and you don’t even see it in the movie, I think.” This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies.

Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez gave us a mini 'Kissing Booth' reunion

SAG Awards 2024: Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez, who starred together in the Kissing Booth movies, had a mini-reunion at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards in Los Angeles. The event happened at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall. During the SAG Awards 2024 ceremony, Taylor, who was acting as the SAG Ambassador with Phil Dunster, wore a navy blue suit with a double-breasted blazer. Joey went for a beige and black dress with blue flowers, and she added sheer black gloves, rings, and a blue bejewelled necklace to complete her look. The two actors, famous for their roles in Kissing Booth 2, also joined in on a TikTok trend with other actors like Phil Dunster, Sam Li, and Noah Lalonde. In the TikTok video, Perez started by saying, “I'm an actor, of course I'm gonna yell ‘line.'” The video included playful comments from other actors about the acting profession. Joey King, in the video, shared, "I'm an actor, of course, I had my first kiss on-screen." She previously talked about having her first real kiss with actor Keegan Allen in The Sound and the Fury when she was 14, and Allen was 26. Even though Jacob Elordi, another co-star from Kissing Booth, called the movies "ridiculous," both Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez have stayed good friends and defended the films. Joey King, who dated Elordi during filming, mentioned that it's unfortunate for anyone to feel that way about the movies. Recently, Jacob Elordi found himself at the centre of a police investigation after he allegedly assaulted a man. The ‘Saltburn’ star reportedly became involved in an altercation with a radio star outside of a hotel in Sydney over the weekend, reports ‘Mirror.co.uk’. Police have since confirmed that they are investigating an alleged assault by a 26-year-old, for which they have seized CCTV footage. Joshua Fox, who appears on Australia's KIIS FM approached the actor outside of the swanky Cleverly Hotel in Sydney and had hoped to question him but things took a drastic turn. Manchester UK-born Josh, 32, had asked Jacob if he could fill a jar with his bathwater, referencing the infamous ‘Saltburn’ scene.

After Meryl disagreed, “No no. That wasn’t a question.” Anne Hathaway playfully referred to one of Miranda Priestly's famously icy lines from the film. Blunt also joined in the fun by quoting one of Miranda's iconic lines, telling Streep, "By all means, move at a glacial pace." Netizens couldn't help but join in on the fun.

They shared their positive experiences making the film and how it impacted their lives. Regarding a potential sequel, Hathaway mentioned in 2022 that it would be tempting but challenging due to changes in the media since the original film's release in 2006. She suggested the idea of a reboot with new actors. Meanwhile, 'The Devil Wears Prada' is being adapted into a musical, with Vanessa Williams taking on the role of Miranda Priestly in the London West End production. The musical will feature an original score by Elton John, direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell, lyrics by Shaina Taub, and a book by Kate Wetherhead.

Billie Eilish at SAG Awards 2024

SAG Awards 2024: Billie Eilish brings 'Academiacore' to the award show

Billie Eilish always brings her unique style, and at the SAG Awards 2024, she didn't disappoint. The 22-year-old 'Happier Than Ever' singer rocked a white dress shirt and tie combo paired with a sweater vest, showing off her quirky-cool fashion.  Billie Eilish brings 'Academiacore'  On January 25, our timelines were blessed with pictures of the gorgeous Billie Eilish. The singer brought her Academiacore best to the SAG Awards 2024. She sported a white dress shirt with a tie, complemented by a sweater vest. Completing the look with black pants and a loose updo, Eilish posed confidently on the red carpet. As a Grammy winner and a presenter at the awards show, she expressed her desire to look "presentable" during an interview with E!'s Laverne Cox.  Billie Eilish brings 'Academiacore' to the SAG Awards 2024, take a look:  Billie Eilish on the focus on women's bodies Billie Eilish has often spoken about why she dresses the way she does. In 2023, Singer Billie Eilish fired back at what she sees as an unfair focus on women’s physiques. “Nobody ever says a thing about men’s bodies. If you’re muscular, cool. If you’re rail thin, cool,” she fumed about what she thinks is a double standard between the sexes when it comes to body image. Eilish, in a magazine interview, said, “If you have a dad bod, cool. If you’re pudgy, love it! Everybody’s happy with it. You know why? Because girls are nice. They don’t give a f*** because we see people for who they are!” The singer also said despite knowing she has always had “big b**bs”, she has “never felt like a woman.” The Grammy winner added she doesn’t feel “feminine” or “desirable”.  “I’ve never felt like a woman, to be honest with you. I’ve never felt desirable. I’ve never felt feminine. I have to convince myself that I’m a pretty girl. I identify as ‘she/her’ and things like that, but I’ve never really felt like a girl.” She has become renowned for wearing baggy clothes and said she hated it when people suddenly “sexualised” her when she changed her trademark look and showed off skin. The singer said, “I wasn’t trying to have people not sexualise me. But I didn’t want people to have access to my body, even visually. I wasn’t strong enough and secure enough to show it. If I had shown it at that time, I would have been completely devastated if people had said anything. Maybe, my not really caring about being sexualised is because I’ve never felt desired or desirable,” she added.

Emily Blunt says she feels 'lighter than air' after turning 41

Actress Emily Blunt shared that she's feeling "happy" and "peaceful" after turning 41.The actress told people.com: "I feel like I've been lighter than air the last couple of weeks. I feel so happy. I don't know if I've had much time to let it sink in. I feel very happy, peaceful, happy." Her 'Oppenheimer' co-star Robert Downey Jr, praised the actress, calling her an "optimist", reports aceshowbiz.com. Speaking about his London-born co-star, he said, "Blunt is most naturally disposed to being an optimist, while being real about things. And also, it's really weird, because you don't see a lot of Brit in her. I'm not saying because you're so cool, but you have an equanimity and a balance - you almost never talk smack about anyone." She struggled with stuttering as a child, and the actress recently revealed that she would love to make a movie "about a stutterer."

Tom Cruise in talks to star in Alejandro G Inarritu's new film

Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise is reportedly in talks to feature in 'The Revenant' filmmaker Alejandro G Inarritu's new movie. Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment are in talks to acquire the project, which marks Inaárritu's first English-language film since the Leonardo DiCaprio starrer in 2015. According to The Hollywood Reporter, plot details are still under wraps for the feature project that was written by Inarritu, Sabina Berman, Alexander Dinelaris and Nicolas Giacobone. The action superstar, who has only featured in big budget franchise projects in the last decade, inked a deal with Warner Bros recently. There is speculation that Cruise is eager to work with two filmmakers on individual projects after working in blockbusters such as 'Mission: Impossible' and 'Top Gun: Maverick,' at Paramount. Cruise is currently working on the next 'Mission Impossible' movie and is still developing a much-touted feature that would be shot in space for Universal and director Doug Liman. Inarritu is known for films such as "The Revenant", which helped DiCaprio win a Best Actor Oscar, and "Birdman", "Babel", "Amores Perros" and "Biutiful". Cruise, despite his global stardom and popularity as one of the most money-making filmstars of his era, is yet to win an Oscar. He has been nominated in the Best Actor category for "Born on the Fourth of July" and "Jerry Maguire". He earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actor category for "Magnolia".  This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies.

Vin Diesel confirms end of Fast And Furious franchise with its last installment

'Fast and Furious' franchise star Vin Diesel has a special update for fans about the popular action movie series. Diesel took to Instagram to announce that he had met earlier with the writers and team behind the planned finale to Universal Pictures' action film series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This is the first public update on the film since Diesel's former assistant sued him for sexual abuse in December over an alleged 2010 encounter at a hotel while working on 'Fast Five'. Diesel, who also produces the car-focused films, has denied any misconduct. Taking to Instagram, he wrote, "Just finished our end of the week Fast meeting with the writers and the whole team... to say the excitement for our finale was incredibly powerful is an understatement. Wow. So exciting..." "While everyone was heading into the weekend amped and excited, I thought of you all... reminded of the countless moments when your enthusiasm and passion became the driving force behind our creative journey. Your commitment to our saga has had a unique impact on its success and evolution... as my youngest daughter would say, it's profound," he added. He thanked his fans for supporting the franchise and concluded the post with, "Thank you for being the backbone of this global saga that because of you, transcends the screen. This grand finale is not just an ending; it's a celebration of the incredible family we've built together. Hope to make you proud!"           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Vin Diesel (@vindiesel) This statement is significant in light of the speculation about the impact of the case on the franchise's future. Fast X, the 10th installment in the 'Fast and Furious' franchise, starring Diesel as racing obsessive Dom Toretto, opened in May and grossed more than $700 million worldwide. In addition to a finale that will star Diesel, another film to star Dwayne Johnson and others from the Fast crew is in the works. Last week, Diesel's visit to the American Cinematheque Awards in Los Angeles marked his first public appearance since the legal action. As one of the high-profile guests paying tribute to honoree Helen Mirren, Diesel thanked the Oscar-winning actress, who had a role in Fast X, for inviting him to speak. She in turn thanked him while accepting her honor. A sequel to 'Fast X' from director Louis Leterrier is scheduled for release on April 4, 2025, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mean Girls Review

Mean Girls movie review: An Upgrade that fails to measure up

Film: Mean GirlsCast: Angourie Rice, Reneé Rapp, Auli'i Cravalho, Jaquel Spivey, Avantika, Bebe WoodDirector: Samantha Jayne, Arturo Perez Jr.Rating: 2.5/5Runtime: 112 min. The original 2004 comedy Mean Girls, written by Tina Fey based on Rosalind Wiseman’s 2002 book Queen Bees and Wannabes, and directed by Mark Waters, starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, is reckoned to be a millennial cult classic. Zingy one-liners and star power helped the film coast right into the hearts of its teen fanbase. This latest version from directors Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr., based on the 2018 Broadway musical adaptation of the 2004 film, takes on a fairly refreshing spin away from the original.  Naive Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is a junior learning to navigate public high school for the first time since previously, she was home-schooled in Kenya by her research scientist mother (Jenna Fischer). Cady finds her first days of school pretty hard to get through but after she is befriended by art freaks Janis ’Imi’ike (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian Hubbard (Jaquel Spivey) who help show her the ropes, she begins to feel a little at home. Janis and Damian often narrate to the audience by breaking into song.   Cady is fascinated by the head of the popular girl clique known as the Plastics, Queen Bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp). Bebe Wood as Gretchen and Avantika as Karen round up the Plastics Clique. When Regina takes a liking to Cady, and invites her to join the Plastics for lunch, the plot kicks up a storm. Little does Cady know that Regina and Janis have a dark history and it could well turn her life upside down.Also, Cady’s crush on her calculus classmate, Regina’s ex, Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney) could also become a bone of contention. This film uses music and social media to highlight the plot beats and character moments that make a significant impression in the story. Cady and Regina’s popularity waxes and wanes at the drop of a hat. Their antics recorded on cell phones, spur countless reaction videos. It’s all done quite well in a visual sense.The songs, though not exactly memorable, manage to convey the right amount of emotion.  Gretchen Weiner’s “What’s Wrong with Me?” is affecting, Janis’ rock anthem “I'd Rather Be Me,” about self-worth, is brought to life through visual flair, “Revenge Party,” sung by Janis and Damian, has a social media aesthetic with vibrant colors and cotton candy clouds while Karen’s ‘Sexy’ at a Halloween house party, stands out for its vivid choreography. Rice has a beautiful voice, but she hasn’t developed her acting skills well enough to stand out here. Rapp and Cravalho though, are really good performers and have the ability to hold you spell bound. Rapp in fact comes in for the major share of eye-pleasing camerawork. Her screen presence is magnified by wide shots and the show of waves she leaves behind every time she crosses a group of students. The writing too is different in some ways. Cliques are described by their inherent nature and not their race. There isn’t much interaction between characters. Humor is missing from most of the one-liners, dancing and singing are presentable and the performances don’t measure up to the original. Overall, this rendition lacks soul. The overarching arc is the same but this film based on the musical based on the original film, doesn’t have the original’s zing. The narrative felt as if it was trying too hard to be funny. It certainly won’t go down in history as something memorable.

‘Game of Thrones’ spinoff ‘The Hedge Knight’ gets 2025 release date

The 'Game of Thrones' spinoff 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight', which was on hold due to the writers' strike in Hollywood, has finally got the release date, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav gave an update on the next 'Game of Thrones' spinoff series, 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight,' "Creator and executive producer George R.R. Martin is in preproduction for the new spinoff, 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms', which will premiere in late 2025 on Max," Zaslav said. Given that 'House of the Dragon' will premiere its second season this summer, the 'Knight of the Seven Kingdoms' release date next year enhances the likelihood of HBO settling into a pattern of having a Thrones drama every year (provided both programmes can complete their next seasons within two years). "Looking ahead, we've got one of the best lineups in the history of HBO," Zaslav added. "This next quarter, we'll have Hacks and House of the Dragon, followed by DC's 'The Penguin' and the new 'Dune' series. Then in 2025, we'll kick off the year with the new season of 'The White Lotus,' followed by 'The Last of Us' and 'Euphoria,' just to name a few." As per the reports earlier this month, HBO is also developing an Aegon's Conquest prequel series from 'The Batman: Part II' writer Mattson Tomlin. Other ideas set in Martin's fantasy world are also in development, though only 'House of the Dragon' and 'Knight of the Seven Kingdoms' have been greenlit. 'The Hedge Knight' is based on Martin's popular trilogy of Dunk and Egg novellas, which tell the story of 'Dunk' (the future Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, Ser Duncan the Tall) and "Egg" (the future king Aegon V Targaryen) as they wander Westeros, having adventures roughly 100 years before the events of the novels. The description: "A century before the events of Game of Thrones, two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros ... a young, naive but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg. Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends," according to The Hollywood Reporter.  This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies.
