Taylor Swift Just Spilled So Many Details About Her Feud With Kanye West

Taylor Swift‘s feud with Kanye West has been well-documented over the years, starting with that infamous speech interruption from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. The latest chapter of this saga happened in 2016, when West included a lyric about Swift in his song “Famous,” calling her “that bitch.” Swift took issue with that specific phrase, but West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, contested the “Lover” singer actually approved of the track. She leaked a phone conversation between West and Swift on Snapchat to prove her point, but it didn’t really work. The footage shows the two artists talking about the song, yes, but not the lyric Swift didn’t like. There’s been tension ever since.

Swift hasn’t really given her side of this story, until now. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, she spilled some tea about the feud seen ’round the world. She told the magazine that “the world didn’t understand the context and the events that led up to” the Snapchat incident. Here’s what she said, in full:

“Some events took place to cause me to be pissed off when he called me a bitch. That was not just a singular event. Basically, I got really sick of the dynamic between he and I. And that wasn’t just based on what happened on that phone call and with that song—it was kind of a chain reaction of things.

I started to feel like we reconnected, which felt great for me—because all I ever wanted my whole career after that thing happened in 2009 was for him to respect me. When someone doesn’t respect you so loudly and says you literally don’t deserve to be here—I just so badly wanted that respect from him, and I hate that about myself, that I was like, ‘This guy who’s antagonizing me, I just want his approval.’ But that’s where I was. And so we’d go to dinner and stuff. And I was so happy, because he would say really nice things about my music. It just felt like I was healing some childhood rejection or something from when I was 19.

But the 2015 VMAs come around. He’s getting the Vanguard Award. He called me up beforehand—I didn’t illegally record it, so I can’t play it for you. But he called me up, maybe a week or so before the event, and we had maybe over an hourlong conversation, and he’s like, ‘I really, really would like for you to present this Vanguard Award to me, this would mean so much to me,’ and went into all the reasons why it means so much, because he can be so sweet. He can be the sweetest. And I was so stoked that he asked me that. And so I wrote this speech up, and then we get to the VMAs and I make this speech and he screams, ‘MTV got Taylor Swift up here to present me this award for ratings!’ [According to Rolling Stone clarified his exact words were, ‘You know how many times they announced Taylor was going to give me the award ’cause it got them more ratings?’] And I’m standing in the audience with my arm around his wife, and this chill ran through my body. I realized he is so two-faced. That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk shit. And I was so upset.

He wanted me to come talk to him after the event in his dressing room. I wouldn’t go. So then he sent this big, big thing of flowers the next day to apologize. And I was like, ‘You know what? I really don’t want us to be on bad terms again. So whatever, I’m just going to move past this.’ So when he gets on the phone with me, and I was so touched that he would be respectful and, like, tell me about this one line in the song.”

Birds Of Prey: Margot Robbie Wanted To Give Harley Friends

The DC live-action universe is a fascinating place that seems to be in constant motion. Rather than full release schedules like the MCU, Warner Bros. allows the performance of each blockbuster to dictate its future. There have been some cast and director shakeups as a result of Justice League‘s box office bomb, but one thing is clear: DC is putting a lot of stock into Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. The femme fatale was a fan favorite from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, with the highly anticipated Birds of Prey marking her second appearance on the silver screen. And it turns out that the movie’s writing was at least partly influenced by Robbie’s hope that Harley gets real friends.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a semi-spinoff for Harley, while also introducing iconic characters from Gotham City and Batman lore. The upcoming blockbuster was written by Bumblebee‘s Christina Hodson, who recently spoke about early meetings she had with Margot Robbie about the female-centric project. As she put it:

Harley was a scene stealer in Suicide Squad, but we didn’t really get to see her interact with female characters. Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller was more of a manipulator than anything, while the sword wielding Katana was mostly mute throughout the film’s runtime. But that’ll change when Birds of Prey finally hits theaters, and sees the villainess interact with DC favorites like Huntress and Black Canary.

It turns out that Christina Hodson and Margot Robbie met for the first time four years ago, before David Ayer’s Suicide Squad had even arrived in theaters. While Harley formed somewhat of a family unit in her first appearance, her personal relationships look like they’ll be especially important during Birds of Prey. And the villain’s first genuine friends will surprisingly come from the heroes of Gotham City, including GCPD officer Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez).

Harley Quinn is a character that was originally defined by her abusive relationship with The Joker. First debuting in Batman: The Animated Series, Harley is constantly beat down physically and emotionally by Mr. J, but continues to stand by her puddin’. But Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) seems to be teasing the character’s independence from Jared Leto’s Clown Prince of Crime.

Later in her conversation with Total Film, Christina Hodson went on to explain just how passionate Margot Robbie is about Birds of Prey, and her character’s overarching narrative. As the writer put it:

This is all very exciting. Not only will Birds of Prey challenge the character of Harley Quinn in new and exciting ways, it seems that Warner Bros. allowed the filmmakers to create bold narrative choices for the upcoming movie.

Birds of Prey looks like it’s going to balance the drama of Gotham City Crime with a quirky cast of characters led by Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. The movie has had a unique approach to marketing thus far, revealing the cast’s upcoming looks through a screen test. A brief teaser was also cut, but only released to audiences ahead of IT Chapter Two.

The upcoming blockbuster also recently debuted its first poster, which puts Harley front and center, and shows audiences how she sees the world, and the various characters she’ll come into contact with for Birds of Prey. The trailer is unique compared to the typically ultra-serious approach that most comic book movies make. And it should be fascinating to see how it all shakes down when Cathy Yan’s DC debut continues the shared universe’s timeline.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) will fly into theaters on February 7th, 2020. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movie.

Toy Story 4’s Alternate Ending Might Be Even More Heartbreaking

Warning: major Toy Story 4 SPOILERS ahead!

As was expected given the series’ track record, the ending of this summer’s Toy Story 4 was bittersweet in every sense of the word, leaving audience members emotionally wrecked after saying goodbye to these beloved characters for perhaps the final time. But if you thought the theatrical ending to the Pixar film was rough, Toy Story 4’s alternate ending might be even more heartbreaking.

Toy Story 4 doesn’t hit digital and home video until October, but Entertainment Weekly has an early look at one of the bonus features, which include an alternate ending for the film. In it, after helping all the other lost toys find kids and homes, Bo Peep sees a kid from the store that she connects with (possibly Harmony, the girl that Gabby Gabby wanted to be with the whole film only to get rejected by her) and calls her “the one.”

Bo Peep, who for the majority of the film eschewed the need for a toy to have a kid and espoused the merits of a free life on the road, realizes that she would like to be with a kid again, that she wants to go back to being a toy in a bedroom with this little girl. She didn’t think she wanted that life anymore, but her connection with this child changes things for Bo Peep. In this moment, Woody would have understood that he once again has to let Bo go.

So after finally finding Bo Peep again after he thought she was lost forever, Woody would have been forced to part ways with her, perhaps for good this time. Bo would have been happy to have found that connection with a kid again, but it would have been absolutely crushing for the cowboy and the sheepherder, and incredibly heartbreaking for the audience to see them part.

The theatrical ending of Toy Story 4 finds Woody saying goodbye to his friends from Bonnie’s room, including Buzz Lightyear, and choosing to stay with Bo Peep and live a life on the road. Bo and Woody then help other lost toys that want homes and kids to find them. It’s a bittersweet ending because Woody had to say goodbye to his friends, but he was reunited with his long lost love and they were embarking on a new life together.

Depending on its implementation, this alternate ending might be even more heartbreaking because it would have been all bitter, no sweet. If this ending took place after Woody and Buzz said goodbye, Woody would have essentially stayed with Bo only to be left by her, at which point he would have no one, or at least no one he really knew. Bonnie had lost interest in Woody but at least he would have still been in her room with Buzz and friends.

I have to say, this move would have been kind of selfish on Bo’s part after Woody just gave up everything he knew to be with her. Plus, she could have just went with Bonnie if she wanted to be a toy again, or Woody could have went with her to her new kid.

This alternate ending would have also kind of forced the Bo character to change her entire belief system. Sure, maybe she felt hurt by Molly and didn’t want to risk that again, and that’s why she was on the road. And just like people, toys can change their minds, but this alternate ending would have gone back on the confidence and freedom Bo Peep had found and the lifestyle she advocated for.

Director Josh Cooley says they came pretty close to using this ending, and although it would have certainly provided the requisite waterworks for a Toy Story movie ending, I think they ultimately made the right choice. And if this is the end of the Toy Story franchise, it’s a happy one for all the toys.

Toy Story 4 arrives on digital on October 1 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on October 8. Check out our 2019 Release Schedule to keep track of all the movies headed your way this fall season.

Jennifer Lopez’s Biggest Career Moments

Jennifer Lopez is currently receiving widespread acclaim and Oscar buzz for her role in Hustlers as Ramona, the ringleader of a group of strippers who con their wealthy Wall Street clients. It’s well-deserved—as Julia Stiles told Glamour, Lopez’s portrayal of Ramona didn’t feel like a performance. It felt lived in and real. On top of that, there’s rumors that Lopez may be in talks for her own Super Bowl halftime show this year.

It’s an exciting time for a Lopez renaissance, but I have a slight chip on my shoulder directed at Hollywood. Actually, it’s a large chip—one the size of a 20-year career that’s spanned dance, music, TV, and a movie where Jane Fonda drinks mouthwash. Jennifer Lynn Lopez has been killing the entertainment game for decades. Decades! So why is she just now receiving serious awards buzz?

I don’t understand what’s taken so long. Lopez’s outstanding performance in Selena was well-received by critics, but she only scored one major acting nomination for it at the Golden Globes. It seems the Recording Academy just wasn’t ready for “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” a near-perfect pop song that cemented J.Lo’s legend status, because the singer has never won a Grammy. And then there’s that aforementioned Super Bowl halftime show—NFL has been overlooking Lopez for that for years.

I can keep going. An Oscar nomination for Hustlers would help rectify all these injustices, but there are so many more Lopez moments that deserve praise in the form of shiny gold statues. Consider this a retroactive Oscars, Grammys, and Emmys campaign.

The aforementioned “Jane Fonda mouthwash” movie, which has a perplexing 17 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. How could you give a movie in which Jane Fonda smashes Jennifer Lopez’s face with a pie anything less than an A+? The Academy missed the boat on this one, and I still haven’t forgiven them.

Lopez plays a teacher whose twisted, confusingly hunky next door neighbor (Ryan Guzman) becomes infatuated with her. Again, critics dismissed this one, but I urge them to revisit it and take note of Lopez’s side bangs and glasses.

Lopez did some hardcore training for this early-aughts classic, in which she plays a woman, Slim, who escapes an abusive relationship and learns enough fight skills to kill her ex-husband, Mitch. Lopez deserves an award just for the scene where Slim breaks into Mitch’s house to hide his guns but puts on a pot of coffee first.

Fans Discover Awesome Marvel Easter Eggs In Spider-Man: Far From Home

After years of being fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve trained our eyes to closely watch out for Easter eggs that either foreshadow our favorite characters’ futures or cleverly wink at their origins. As Spider-Man: Far From Home reaches more eyeballs, especially with its Tuesday digital release, fans are spotting more fun nods, including this one during Peter Parker’s flight to Europe:

Future Disney+ content? No, this is a screenshot from Spider-Man: Far From Home (via Marvel Stuff) that shows some universe interconnected in-flight entertainment as Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is trying to escape the fallout of Endgame, including the death of his mentor/father figure Tony Stark. Just as you’d expect the world to react if the Snap really happened, tons of documentaries seemed to have been produced around the event.

Titles such as The Snap, Finding Wakanda, Hunting Hydra, Nova: Einstein Rosen Bridges with Stellan Skarsgård’s Dr. Erik Selvig and Heart of Iron: The Tony Stark Story are avaliable for flyers to press play on, much to Parker’s lament. Easter eggs such as these certainly show a close attention to detail within the MCU.

One has to wonder if documentaries such as these are avaliable to the public, they may have a greater understanding of the Avengers adventures than ever before. If movies on topics such as Wakanda and Hydra are being regularly watched by civilians, the MCU post-Snap has inspired more knowledge about superheroes than ever before.

It’s unclear how exactly Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will continue after the Disney/Sony split, but the actor is signed on for at least one more movie. He will reportedly no longer have connections with the MCU, but could join forces with other Spider-Verse characters Sony plans to establish. Fans will be curious to see how the third Spider-Man film continues his arch rooted in the interconnected Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward.

The next phase of the MCU will begin next May with Black Widow and Eternals in November.

Moviepass Exec Wants To Rebuild The Company

Only a couple years ago, MoviePass was one of the biggest names in the industry. The company made unlimited theatrical viewing affordable to a lot of people and the service’s subscriber base skyrocketed. However, from their high point, there was only one way to go, and MoviePass slowly began to bleed subscribers and money until the company officially announced it was closing down last week. However, at least one major company executive isn’t ready to give up on MoviePass.

Ted Farnsworth, former head of MoviePass parent company Helios and Matheson Analytics says that he believes that MoviePass can still be salvaged, though he admits it’s a process that will require time. According to Farsnworth…

It’s certainly true that MoviePass disrupted the industry. When the movie ticket subscription service dropped it’s monthly cost to $9.95, millions of people signed up. Considering that even a single movie ticket costs that much or more in many places in the country, the service became an instant deal.

Initially, the service allowed users to see one movie a day, every day of the year. However, it soon became clear that, even with the influx of subscribers, MoviePass was having difficulty making money. Eventually the free-for-all version of MoviePass began to be slowly replaced by a version with more restrictions, which caused a slow but consistent drop in subscribers.

MoviePass tried to relaunch once but it was largely ineffective. Interestingly, Ted Farsnworth tells Variety that he doesn’t believe the $9.95 price point was MoviePass’s ultimate problem, but rather what he calls “consumer fraud.” According to him…

Today, all three of the major U.S. theater chains, AMC, Regal, and Cinemark, have their own subscription services which a relaunched MoviePass would have to deal with. All of them seem to be meeting with success in one form or another. Regal’s option even offers the same “unlimited” viewing that MoviePass once did. If MoviePass does come back, it will have to find a way to differentiate itself from the rest of the market.

MoviePass wasn’t the only casualty of the subscription service war. Competitor Sinemia also closed down earlier this year.

Ted Farnsworth says that while he himself may not be the person to bring back MoviePass, he would have no problem investing money in a return if somebody else did…

Do you think MoviePass has a chance being resurrected? Would you care if it was? Let us know in the poll down below.

Saw Reboot Director Teases A Trap Worse Than The Needle Pit

The horror genre has been in a bit of a renaissance lately, with new and exciting projects hitting theaters and making tons of money in the process. But the genre has always been built on long-running franchise and inevitable sequels. The Saw franchise had a long initial run, returning to theaters a few years ago with Jigsaw. The torture porn series will be back to terrify moviegoers this coming May, with a re-imagining produced by Chris Rock. And it looks like the traps are going to be especially nightmare inducing, even worse than iconic ones like Saw II‘s pit of needles.

Saw II hit theaters back in 2005, and expanded the narrative and scope of Jigsaw’s world. One of the most horrifying aspects of the movie’s giant trap involved a pit of used syringes. Jigsaw protegee Amanda is thrown into the pit, in a sequence that is truly harrowing to get through. But according to director Darren Lynn Bousman, his upcoming sequel features a trap that might give the pit a run for its money. As he put it:

Well, those are some big words. But considering how long Darren Lynn Bousman has been involved in the Saw franchise, the man knows his way around the villain’s gory traps. And it looks like he’s got something special up his sleeve for the next untitled installment in the property.

Darren Lynn Bousman’s tweet may excite the hardcore fans of the Saw franchise, who have been following the torturous adventures for well over a decade. James Wan created the world with his original Saw movie, but the sequels were free of his influence, and constantly tried to push the envelope regarding its traps, and the horrifying imagery moviegoers would be subject to. Saw II was the first of these sequels, and the needle pit is one of the first indications that Jigsaw’s sophomore run wasn’t pulling any punches.

The traps for the Saw franchise occasionally went off the rails (anyone remember that bone breaker from Saw III?), but the needle pit is so terrifying because of its simplicity. It’s a nightmare to have to dig through a pile of dirty needles, with every single movement proving more painful than the last. Amanda was forced into this game by another player in Jigsaw’s game, digging through the pain (literally) in an attempt to prove herself to her mentor.

As a reminder, you can check out the scene in question below, but it’s definitely NSFW.

Yikes. This is a trap that seems to have stuck with Darren Lynn Bousman, as he continued to work in the horror genre both within the Saw franchise and on other projects. Saw II was his first outing in the franchise, and it should be interesting to see what he does with the upcoming sequel.

Darren Lynn Bousman directed Saw II, III, and IV, with a new movie arriving every Halloween season to terrify moviegoers. But he hasn’t worked within the franchise since 2007, over a decade ago. We’ll have to see if this time away has resulted in a fresh perspective on the property, or if its just another Saw movie. Chris Rock’s inclusion as a producer and writer certainly brings fresh energy to the universe, hopefully one that will help Saw climb the ranks of the horror world again.

The new Saw movie is currently set to arrive May 15th, 2020. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
