One Specific Roma Scene Helped Alfonso Cuarón Deal With Childhood Trauma
Filming one of the scenes where the father of the family at the center of Roma, Antonio (Fernando Grediaga,) leaves to the chagrin of his wife, Sofia (Marina de Tavira,) Alfonso Cuarón found himself in what he personally described as a foul mood. After taking a walk, and having a bit of an internal monologue, the reason became clear.
The obvious hurdle to a potential Batman/Joker team-up is the fact that Matt Reeves’ project is already fully set in stone — and it seems as though there’s nary a Joker to be found amongst his cast of characters. If The Batman is a hit, there’s obviously the potential for a sequel — but even then, it’s hard to envision Todd Phillips (or Joaquin Phoenix, for that matter) so readily loaning their version of the Joker to someone else’s film. Though no official Joker sequel is in the works, Todd Phillips’ admitted he has entertained the idea of what Batman would look like if he appeared in his gritty version of Gotham City. But he seems far more interested in continuing to tell the Joker’s story than he is in exploring the wider Batman lore.
When it comes to swift and stern clapbacks, nobody does it better than Gigi Hadid.
On Sunday, the model took to Twitter to take on YouTube star Jake Paul, following his tweets claiming he almost had to “clap up” Zayn Malik after a night out. (So much clapping going on here!)
In the middle of the night, Paul tweeted, “almost had to clap up zane [sic] from 1 direction because he is a little guy and has an attitude and basically told me to fuck off for no reason when I was being nice to him…. zane ik you’re reading this… stop being angry cause u came home alone to ur big ass hotel room hahaha.”
Though we have many, many questions on how this all even came to pass, Metro UK reported that both Malik and Paul were in Las Vegas over the weekend to watch the boxing match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
In a second tweet about the incident, Paul doubled down: “bro he literally started yelling and freaking the fuck out. ‘You wanna test me mate.’ lol I feel bad for childhood stars.”
Just a few hours later, after catching wind of the tweet, Hadid jumped on social media to defend her man (and prove that her and Malik are absolutely on again). Hadid wrote:
“Lol cause he doesn’t care to hang w you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies ..? Home alone with his best friends like a respectful king cause he has me, sweetie. Unbothered by your irrelevant ugly ass. Go to bed …”
Fans of Hadid and Malik were quick to jump in to offer their support for Hadid’s tweets and to ask the model to finish her round in the Twitter ring with Paul.
Is this drama confusing? Very! But well, it’s 2020. As of Sunday morning, Hadid’s tweet has more than 25,000 retweets and more than 100,000 likes with no signs of stopping anytime soon, so, it’s probably safe to say Hadid got the real knock-out on this one.
God bless Harrison Ford. I’m serious. Because he is not serious about much, even with that dry deadpan tone making every word sound like gospel. Still, now that Star Wars’ nine-film Skywalker Saga is complete, and the cast and crew and fans are looking back with fond memories, you might expect Ford to share something … different … about his experience playing Han Solo. Then again, it’s Harrison Ford — who can’t tell carbonite from kryptonite and gives zero f*cks about it — so you might not.
The actor’s next project, The Last Duel, is a huge collaboration in more ways than one. Set in 14th century France, it’s a true story about two knights, Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris. After Jean de Carrouges accused Jacques Le Gris of raping his wife, King Charles VI sanctioned a duel between the two. He’ll have a supporting role in the film, but is still deeply involved as one of the screenwriters, along with Matt Damon. When asked about the project, Ben Affleck was quick to admit he knows it’s an ambitious project (via ET):
But I grew up with Sonic and went into the movie having a deep appreciation for his history and lore. My kids on the other hand, aged 3 and 4, did not. Sure, they already knew about Sonic since I’ve introduced them to most of the stuff I love. But they have a different perspective on the blue blur than I do, and that couldn’t be more apparent in the aspects that they loved about the movie, but more importantly, in the aspects that they hated. Hopefully, you’ve already seen the movie for yourself, but if you haven’t, spoilers ahead.

Escape from Pretoria is based on the true story of Tim Jenkin and Stephen Lee (Daniel Webber), two young white South Africans against apartheid who were branded “terrorists.” They were imprisoned in 1978 in Pretoria Maximum Security Prison for working covert operations for Nelson Mandela’s banned ANC. They decided to send the apartheid regime a clear message and escape. Thanks to ingenuity, meticulous surveillance, and wooden keys crafted for 10 steel doors, they formed a plan for freedom.

This week continues to be a dream time for you where nothing quite makes sense or reaches clear form. That’s how it’s meant to be, so don’t try to force answers; they will come. Get in touch with spirit or channel some creative genius as the cosmos is precisely the opposite of analytical right now. Dreams have messages and number plates kind of make sense, be open without looking for it. You may have to stand up for yourself over a stand-off coming from your career zone. Use your charm but be direct. If you’re feeling pressured by a power struggle is could mean you need to step into your own and face it.
Taurus | Taurus rising
Faces and places from your past continue to resurface, sending you into a reflective mode of review. What kind of feelings do you want to experience in your friendships? What are your squad goals? Do you have a plan? Things could be confusing around the group activity, or someone may be creating a smokescreen. Don’t push the issue, for now, sit back, observe and listen to your gut instincts on it, they are correct. Once Mercury moves direct in a couple of weeks, the fog will lift, and you’ll know how to move forward whether its social connections or your social contribution.
Gemini | Gemini rising
With your ruling planet backtracking through your career house you’ll have plenty to review. Dreams may resurface about how and where you want to head vocationally, or you may dream of a looser work environment, like location independence somewhere your income stretches a lot further. Whatever it is, this is the time to dream and brainstorm. Put your feelers out but don’t make the decisions yet. More information is due to come to light, either externally, or realizations from within. Compassion may be a driving force for course correction, and if so, your contribution will be all the more holistic.
