(344) The Wasp slayed + links

By sati (harlequinade) Friday, June 29, 2018
  • Evangeline Lily slayed. She actually majorly slayed as she is getting standout notices in Ant-Man and the Wasp reviews. I cannot believe it's 5 more weeks before I see the movie.
  • I have been a fan of Evi since her Lost days. She is absolutely stunning, down to Earth and lovely. It's so great to see that she is doing so well and that MCU is finally doing something to bring female representation to their universe. 
  • Here's Lilly and Paul Rudd being adorable at the premiere of the movie - 1,2
  • They shaved Sunshine boo :(
  • Sif decided to get cancelled
  • To nobody's surprise Westworld's ratings are down again. The reaction to the finale is pretty negative everywhere. I really don't know how they could drop the ball so bad.
  • Just imagine Ed Harris do that.
  • It is kinda hilarious that they keep Harris in the dark of all people. Like, sure, he is gonna leak that information. 
  • From his ranch away from civilization. 
  • Where he is literally spending his time planting trees and riding horses.
  • Dumbasses.
  • Thrones wedding happened last weekend between Rose Leslie and Kit Harrington. Why must the Stark sisters actresses always look like Russian hookers? And why wasn't Jason there? It's a social event with the people he knows and booze. Literally two requirements of him showing up somewhere.
  • So we have another The Predator trailer and this one is better than the previous one though to be fair it would be difficult to make a worse one. It still doesn't look good but at least now it doesn't look like an absolute train wreck. 
  • Of course either way it will not be a waste of my time because just look at all those shots of Boyd.
  • That's a very big gun. God, I love boos holding big guns. And in the jungle of all places.
  • There's also a poster which is actually really good.
  • Terry Crews, ladies and gentlemen. By the way of course reddit's reaction to this is full backing. But when a woman does something like this she must be lying.
  • Meanwhile, 50 Cent is trash.
  • Speaking of trash what a cute photo of two "men" bringing their star power to a movie made by someone who defends a child rapist. 
  • David Lynch decided to share some thoughts on Trump this week and it didn't go well. I really don't care. He signed Polanski petition so he is already in the morally bankrupt territory. 
  • Jessica Chastain has been slaying left and right this week - 1,2,3
  • Brad new stills from The Nun.
  • Patty Jenkins shared first picture of Kristen Wiig from Wonder Woman 1984. I love everything we know about this movie so far. This is giving me some serious Batman Returns' mousy Selina Kyle vibes. And the production design and the costumes look so interesting and rich. 
  • First poster for Glass
  • Utterly insane trailer for Mandy with Nicolas Cage. I don't even know how to describe it. Just watch it.
  • Lovely character posters from Bad Times at the El Royale.
  • I started rewatching Mission: Impossible movies in my anticipation for the bathroom fight which will kill us all. I saw the first two movies and didn't like them very much. The second is so crazy I had no idea what was happening for the most of the movie. Anthony Hopkins showed up as randomly as he did in season 2 of Westworld. People kept taking off masks and revealing themselves to be someone else. Thandie Netwon and Tmmy Gurl were spinning in out of control cars in slow-mo. Madness.
  • Dogs are so smart. 
  • Hugh Jackman's beard is killing me. 
  • Meanwhile, seriously, The Greatest Showman will be playing in American theaters long after we are all dead. 
  • Here are delightful workshop recordings of This is Me and From now on. He tore the stitches on his nose because he just had to sing.
  • Trailer and poster for Beautiful Boy featuring Peach enthusiast and Steve Carell. Two things here - between this, dolls movie and Chaney Steve really wants to be in the upcoming Oscar season. And I don't know if this is because I recently rewatched The Office but I can't get into Steve acting all dramatic here. His voice is so goofy to me in this trailer. I keep waiting for him to scream "Midnight, Oscar!" or "Where are the turtles?!".
  • Patricia Clarkson is getting wild on those talk shows.
  • New footage from Mission Impossible - Fallout.
  • Also why let us live, right? 
  • Carell's doll movie will now have to battle Aquaman in the box office war. Oh boy, I wonder which will do better.
  • James Wan shared a picture of funko pop of himself and in the background there's clearly Aquaman footage. 
  • In fact it looks like the footage from the scene in which Arthur fights Orm. I can see Jason being shirtless there. To be fair I always see Jason being shirtless but I think he actually is shirtless there..
  • ...
  • .....
  • ......
  • The longer I remain without that trailer, the more insane I become. 
  • You would think I maxed out a long time ago, but nope.
  • 3 more weeks....this is gonna get really bad.
  • Ah yes, speaking of impending batshit insanity, my dreams are getting worse. 
  • First I had a dream about Cavill with his CGI Justice League mouth burning fields with families with small children on it.
  • And then I had LetoJoker dream. Which ties well with the funniest news of the week:
  • Jared Leto is gonna get edgy and method in CBM again. Yes, Sony has had another bright idea and now they are making Morbius movie. 
  • Morbius is a villain from Spider-Man comics, a scientist who turns into a vampire. Sony is making a universe of Spidermanverse villains....without Spiderman in it. We already have upcoming Venom with Hardy which looks like hot mess but apparently people wanna bang that thing so it may not be a disaster. 
  • But that's not bad enough for Sony. 
  • Nope. 
  • They clearly went "what is the worst fucking thing we can do?" And then they went "well, on the heels of getting dozens of vampire flicks in the last decade let's get someone whose last CBM adventure was a disaster and make a vampire movie with him"
  • This is actually good cause if it wasn't for Sony, WB would be the dumbest studio out there.
  • Also if this actually happens we can say Method Leto Cinematic Universe exists.
  • Sends condom while playing Joker.
  • Pretends to be blind while working on Blade Runner 2049.
  • (I'm assuming) raids blood banks while working on this.
  • Shaves pubes for each one of those, because why not.
  • What a time to be alive.
  • m.brown reviews Upgrade
  • MettelRay reviews Brick
  • Alex lists 15 spiritual sequels
  • Allie reviews Hereditary
  • Brittani writes about 13 Reasons Why
  • Sonia reviews Murder on the Orient Express


    1. Sorry to prance this around but I'm seeing ANT-MAN AND THE WASP IN A WEEK. I was trying to figure out which actors Evangeline was talking about though. I think Chris talked about the cowl he had to wear and which suit was his favorite, but I don't remember a lot of Marvel actors complaining about their suits. Still, she rocked the promos. Can't wait!!!!

      *dancing about the new WW1984 still* I'm getting Selina vibes too. *crossing my fingers*

      What did they do to Sunshine Boo.

      Excited for Glass, mostly because Sarah Paulson is in it. lol

      Cavill knows exactly what he's doing with those Instagram posts.

      lol Affleck's dog ignoring him.

      I always appreciate that Steve breaks the mold from Michael, but at the same time, I haven't watched his dramatic movies at all..Battle of the Sexes is the only one I remember.

      I just started watching Game of Thrones, and ooooh, Dothraki. lol I know what happens to him BUT STILL.

      WTF at that dream with Cavill. Meanwhile I'm still dreaming of working at Barnes and Noble - second time in a week. *frowny face*

      1. Probably all of them :) I'm sure throughout the years she heard them whine a lot.

        Steve was fantastic in Foxcatcher. He was also really conveniencing in The Way Back. He is a great actor but his acting was a bit odd to me in this trailer.

        OH MY GOD YOU STARTED GAME OF THRONES?! That's amazing! The first few seasons are really awesome. Lady Catelyn is the greatest!

    2. Uhghhhhhhh Wiig.

      Lmao Marwen going up against Aquaman. Have fun drowning.

      Predator I still think will be a hot mess but it could also be very fun.

      My husband is also rewatching all the MI movies but probably not for the same reason.

      Thanks for the link!

      1. LOL, she is gonna be good, you'll see!

        Yep. Drowning in panties :D

        Oh it is most definitely going to be a mess but at least I get to state at Boyd

        Well I am rewatching them and not perving because so far there is no one there to perv over. But they're really entertaining!

    3. Why on earth did they shave Chris?! Dafuq is their problem?!

      I haven’t checked all the links because I’m on my phone but have you noticed Cavill beard suddenly growing in the bathroom scene? Lol

      Thanks for the link!

      1. MCU is godless!

        I think it's just him moving his chin up a bit and facial hair looking like that? At least I think that's what happens :)

    4. Evangeline Lilly makes the world come alive!

    5. Thank you for the link! I hear you on Beautiful Boy. The opening scene to that trailer is so intense, but Chalamet is running circles around Carell. You're right, his voice is so distinct, and he always sounds like Michael Scott to me. I like Carell, but the only time I haven't seen a trace of Michael Scott in his work was Foxcatcher.

      1. You're welcome! Especially when he is shouting :) I thought he was also quite good in The Way Back and Little Miss Sunshine. I'm not sure what is so off here, must be the shouting.

    6. I am so pumped for Ant-Man and the Wasp now, and I never thought I would be! Paul Rudd gets more adorable each day...does the man actually age?!?!
      I damn near died when I read 'peach enthusiast'....thanks for reminding me of that scene...*shudder*
      Thanks for the link!

      1. He doesn't age :) He just gets more adorable :P

        I don't think it's possible to ever forget that madness lol

    7. Boyd looks so precious, I mean I have no idea what will happen in that movie, because I don't think I've seen most of the movies in that franchise, but I will be there. Hopefully he will look good throughout!

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO @ no beard for Cap!?!?!?!?!? If they kill him off and he doesn't have a beard (which is what it looks like) I will go to the states and start a riot. Unlikely but that's how mad I feel at the moment!

      Mandy actually looks good.. like interesting good. Cage is crazy looking but that's expected, but I think I'll still watch it..

      I still don't think Chastain's casting for IT's chapter 2 works but I'm still going to watch it.
      And Glass poster looks good, McAvoy seems super photoshopped though.

      Thanks for the link!

      1. Yeah there is no way that James actually got ripped like that :) I hope the film is good, you never know with M. Nigiht

    8. Thanks for the link, Sati. Hopefully you dig Upgrade.

      I have been in love with Evangeline Lily since the moment I saw her on Lost and am f--king ecstatic that she owns in Ant Man and the Wasp. We might be seeing it today...yesssss.

      Am I crazy (yes), or have they not put a trailer for Predator in front of anything in the cinema? I try to avoid trailers I'm in total darkness on this one. I guess I'll have to take your word on them.

      I'm very concerned about this Morbius movie. VERY. CONCERNED. Leto...I guess...makes sense, but uh...did they see Suicide Squad? What the f--k?

      HAhaha @ Getter. No beard for Cap might just kill her. But we don't need any more reasons to riot here, thank you very much.

      Are we all okay with Dakota Johnson? We sure about this???

      1. I don't know when I'll get to see it but I'm psyched!

        Apparently you saw dinosaurs and Chris fucking Pratt instead? For shame!

        Dakota managed not to be terrible in that one Robot Grey movie I saw so I guess she is OK

    9. I hope Mandy is a return to form for Nicolas Cage. A talented actor who has been in way too many bad films recently, so that I'd almost given up on him.

      1. Yeah I hope Cage finally gets out of this terrible spot he has been for years now

    10. That Mandy trailer sure is something, lol. I'm down. B)

      And I know I'm late to this post, but I'm sure that somewhere in America, The Greatest Showman is still playing in a theater somewhere. :P

      1. Seriously! That film will be there forever :P
