Look, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I know anything about fantasy football. But what I will tell you is that this video is hysterical; I’ve already watched it several times. From the radical wigs to the phrase, “I love you 3000 but you’re going to lose to an ant,” this video is seriously on point and takes fantasy football trash talk to a whole new level.
In a world that has seen movie theaters welcoming attendance, but the numbers signaling that there’s either not as much interest, or not the right content to draw the crowds, Alita: Battle Angel’s re-release feels like it could be an outlier that the big chains have been waiting for. While social distancing and theater availability might not be the same as a modest blockbuster in the before times, the results could be enough to show the world that Alita: Battle Angel is still in the hearts and minds of so many. Then again, if you can get James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez to tweet about the re-issue of a movie they both released almost two years ago, that has to say something doesn’t it?

This sort of thing used to be civilized: you misbehaved throughout the year, Santa Claus gave you a lump of coal, done. But with the trailer for Mel Gibson’s Fatman, there’s a certain naughty kid who’s decided to take the law into his own hands, by putting a hit out on the holly jolly holiday maker himself. Judging by what we’ve seen, and what you’re about to see, it doesn’t look like Kris Kringle’s just going to lie down and take what’s coming to him. See for yourself, in Fatman’s first trailer below:
Well, that’s certainly one way of taking criticism. Johnny Depp had conviction in what he was bringing to Captain Jack Sparrow in 2003’s The Curse of the Black Pearl, and ultimately it was a characterization that really resonated with audience. The character said his iconic lines through swigs of rum, and seemed to survive his various adventures on the big screen largely through luck.
Every Halloween Bette Midler hosts a fundraiser for the New York Restoration Project, called Hocus Halloween, and while this year’s event, like most everything else, will be virtual, it’s not stopping the guests from dressing up. While the event doesn’t happen until the end of October, Glenn Close used Instagram to give us a sneak peek at her costume. In much the same way that Bette Midler has previously dressed up as her Hocus Pocus character, Glenn Close will be bringing back Cruella de Vil. Check her out.
Of course, there’s no indication that Rian Johnson is bringing back any other Knives Out actors besides Daniel Craig. Instead the franchise will seemingly focus an an anthology story, each following a different case of Benoit Blanc’s. And while Ana de Armas is eager to get a call from the filmmaker, her character’s story was largely wrapped up in the first movie.
