The Alien Overlords of Captive State Might Be Comingfor Us

The world suffers an imbalance. An alien authority known as the Legislators has invaded Earth under the false promise of “peace, unity, and harmony.” Governments have been seized. Militaries demobilized. Cities walled off. The great, last hopes of the contemporary age have fully rotted, giving way to a climate of fear and subjugation. Social fractures run deep. So deep that there now exists an impassable chasm between rich and poor. These are violently oppressive times. A contagion infects the very rituals of democracy. It is a nation created anew, made scarily singular: the United State of America. The setting for Rupert Wyatt’s Captive State is propelled by a sustained fever of unrest. In this occasionally ambitious film, crisis sprouts, spreads. …

SOURCE: Brad Pitt ‘Isn’t Thrilled’ With Angelina Jolie Giving Their Kids The Movie Star Treatment! – Perez Hilton

Every once in a while we get a little glimpse into the parenting clashes between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. No, we don’t mean the hundred years war that is their neverending battle for custody — we mean the basic differences in child rearing between the two which leave them unable to agree on anything! On Monday the star of Maleficent — and apparently still Maleficent 2 eventually — took advantage of her Disney family membership and attended the premiere of the live action Dumbo.

The Day Shall Come review Chris Morris returns with wild farce

The mysterious writer-director travels to Miami for a short but sharp comedy about an idealistic preacher targeted by the FBI In the nine years since the release of Four Lions, Chris Morriss incendiary feature film debut, his absence from both big and small screens has felt like an ill-timed loss. As a director, hes taken on a handful of Veep episodes but as a writer, hes starved us of new material which, for anyone familiar with his long and storied career, has been a tough blow. Because throughout his work, from The Day Today to Brass Eye to Nathan Barley, hes perfected a brand of cultural and political commentary thats both uniquely incisive and uniquely silly and given the worlds …

Pete Davidson & Kate Beckinsale – The Story So Far… – Perez Hilton

Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale are apparently the real thing… for now anyway. On last weekend’s Saturday Night Live, 25-year-old Pete comedically confirmed his romance with the 45-year-old actress with a bit about sexist double-standards on May-December romances. So how did all this happen? Is it likely to last? Here’s the entire story of Pete and Kate so far… Contents 2 MEET CUTE 4 SECOND SIGHT 6 VALENTINES 8 CONFIRMATION/CLAPBACK

Ben Affleck Defends His VERY REAL Huge Back Tattoo On ‘Ellen’! – Perez Hilton

Ben Affleck may have tried to remove the public’s awareness of his giant back tattoo, but it just keeps coming up again like… well… Huh. There must be a good metaphor for something that people try to kill but keeps rising from the ashes instead… Oh well, we’re sure we’ll think of it eventually. The former Batman visited Ellen DeGeneres for the first time in quite a while to promote his Netflix movie Triple Frontier, and she couldn’t help but poke fun at his unsightly ink. Here we see Ben laughing off the pain. / (c) EllenTube The ink made its first appearance in 2015 on the set of his film Live By Night, and it’s been subject of ridicule by the public …

‘Wrecking Crew’ Drummer Hal Blaine, Who Played On Rock’s Biggest Hits, Has Died

The The Associated Press reported that he Blaine performed on dozens of beloved albums, including the Beach Boys’ masterwork “Pet Sounds.” He also worked with Elvis Presley, Sonny & Cher, The Mamas & the Papas, Simon & Garfunkel and The Byrds, as well as both Frank and Nancy Sinatra, just to name a few. “ Blaine’s drumming was also a key part of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound, including the instantly recognizable opening beat of “Be My Baby” by The Ronettes:  He performed on several Elvis hits, including “ Blaine also played on an Elvis song that became a hit twice. “A Little Less Conversation” hit Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1968 as part of the soundtrack to the film “Live a …

What to expect from the Four Weddings charity sequel

Image caption What will have become of the characters a quarter of a century on? Curtis has revealed some details of the sequel’s plot. Two Oscar nominations and a hit song (and THAT dress) Why did we fall in love with Four Weddings? Clarisse Loughrey, culture reporter for The Independent, says its very Britishness was one of the keys to its success. “There’s a touch of national pride to it, I think,” she says. “The rom-com genre is otherwise completely dominated by Hollywood, but Four Weddings and a Funeral is a film that feels British to its very core – all the way from Hugh Grant’s floppy hair to the delightfully profusive swearing.” Sarah O’Connell, film critic and host of …

‘All I ever wanted to do was write a love song that stands the test of time’: Karen O on her best songs

From her punky breakthrough to her David Lynch collaboration, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer takes us through her back catalogue Yeah Yeah Yeahs Bang It is July 2001, and an EP with a 22-year-old frontwoman on its cover is flying out of independent record shops, reaching No 1 on the UK indie chart. Her picture is cropped like a Polaroid: only the shaggy ends of a short bob, her full lips and a necklace on her bare chest can be seen. Bought from an East Village S&M store, it reads MASTER, which felt a one-woman fuck-you to the boys-and-guitars indie world at the time. That was a selfie before its time! says the woman on that cover today: Karen Orzolek …

Pete Davidson is dating an older woman – why is the world shocked?| Arwa Mahdawi

Misogyny is behind the criticism of the Saturday Night Live comedians relationship with Kate Beckinsale Quiz time! Put your calculators away, please, I have a maths problem designed to test every inch of your natural intelligence. Ready? Here we go: Pete Davidson is a 25-year-old comedian. He is dating Kate Beckinsale, a 45-year-old actor. Whats their age difference? Twenty years? Wrong. The correct answer, judging from popular responses, is: Too many years to be acceptable. While society takes older men hooking up with younger women for granted, we still seem to have a lot of hang-ups about women dating younger guys. There is a one-word explanation for this: misogyny. Davidson has addressed such double standards head-on. eople have a crazy …

Senate Democrats press Mnuchin about his financial holdings

Washington (CNN)Senate Democrats pressed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about his financial holdings on Thursday, calling on the former financier to explain why there have been delays in certifying his required ethics disclosures. “What we have wondered is if there has been an exchange of an asset for a loan rather than a divestment,” Wyden asked. Mnuchin responded that he has complied with rules according to certified career ethics officials inside the Treasury Department. “I am advised by people at Treasury that I am fully in compliance and I have no ethical issues,” Mnuchin said. The secretary declined to go into specifics about particular divestments of assets, but said that career staff at Treasury had been in ongoing discussions with OGE. …

How YouTube Made a Star Out of This Super-Smart Film Critic

Lindsay Ellis is just about ready to start shooting a video in her personal studio—aka a tiny second-floor room in Ellis’ western Los Angeles home—and the 34-year-old writer and YouTube essayist is making some final preparations. She gently repositions a couple of pet tortoises resting in a tank nearby, so they won’t noisily thunk their heads against the wall mid-shoot. Then she heads to a shelf stocked with Transformers of varying sizes, colors, and allegiances. “Which Starscream should I use?” she asks, scanning her collection. She eventually selects a handful of figures, including miniature-sized versions of Starscream and Windblade that recently appeared on her wedding cake, and carries them back to her desk. If you’ve seen any of Ellis’ videos …

People Are Still Talking About “The World’s Sexiest Koala”

Humans suck. We treat the planet like it is our own personal trash patch. (All non-human animals be damned.) We film ourselves eating Tide Pods and we use military weapons to light up.  Another terrible, terrible thing our species is wont to do is sexualize other animals. First, there was Shabani the gorilla. Then, there was this hench kangaroo – or roolander (sorry) – and New York’s “hot” duck. Now, we have the “World’s Sexiest Koala” because nothing is sacred. The innocent koala was going about his day, munching on eucalyptus leaves and doing whatever it is that koalas do, when British photographer Ross Long snapped him in an unusual pose. Long then posted a photo on Instagram with the caption “Draw me like one of your French …

Superheroes and freaky cats: how Captain Marvel rewrote the rules

From the story behind Nick Furys eyepatch to the rehabilitation of the Skrull, the latest Marvel film has altered comic-book canon in fruitful ways If theres one thing we should have been primed for, prior to viewing Captain Marvel, it would be to expect the unexpected. Marvel is a studio that, time and again, has chosen to twist comic-book canon to suit new needs, rather than deliver overly faithful adaptations of the original work. The addition of the Skrull, a race of alien shape-shifters, to the Marvel universe, Captain Marvels trailers showed Skrull disguising themselves as human while fighting Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) naturally led observers to suspect they were up to their old tricks. To twist that narrative on …

Beto O’Rourke ready to ‘push the button’ on presidential campaign, source says

El Paso, Texas (CNN)Former US Rep. Beto O’Rourke is ready to “push the button” to launch his presidential campaign, with the announcement expected to first come on social media, a source familiar with his plans told CNN. O’Rourke is in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, this week ahead of his Iowa trip.
