(406) James, you lucky bastard + links

By sati (harlequinade) Friday, September 6, 2019
  • So I'm 30.
  • Can you believe in 10 years I'll be 40?
  • Or DEAD?
  • What the fuck, right?
  • Well, anyways....
  • Here's the first short teaser for Birds of Prey. It looks very colorful and fun and Ewan McGregor appears to be having a blast!
  • Oh, so you think celebrities don't have problems?
  • Look at those morons firing up thesaurus. When this thing its released social media will be more unbearable with the hot takes from all the 'men' than when new Tarantino premiered.
  • Oh, who do they think they are kidding?
  • WB, do better. You are an embarrassment on so many levels.
  • So the extended cut of Midsommar will only be available on something called Apple TV. I don't even know what that is. That is such an awful move on A24's part. But it's not like people won't see it, we all know there are ways.
  • How does that woman manage to become more and more shitty with every week?
  • Oh, bad choice, David, bad choice.
  • New character posters for It: Chapter Two! (1,2). I'm watching the movie tonight and I just cannot wait. I'm sure I will tweet a lot of things in all caps afterwards, so keep an eye out on my twitter, it will be interesting and as always deeply embarrassing and descriptive. 
  • New featurette!
  • Embargo has lifted! And I made a thread where I put all the nice quotes about Bill because 1. I'm insane 2. WELL, WHY THE HELL NOT?!
  • Look at all that praise for him.
  • He looks really startled here.
  • Great photoset of young/older actors in the movie.
  • Hats off to Stephen King for 'enthusiastically' approving it!
  • More press interviews! (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11). The seventh one has Bill's Travolta impression!
  • He was really losing it during those, he looks great, what the hell is he talking about?! I'd be honored to make him a salad, if he'd like, though (here's the whole video)
  • He just doesn't give a fuck, does he?
  • This is now without a doubt the funniest thing that happened during this press tour (whole interview).
  • So I guess now we know why McAvoy wasn't there doing press interviews on day 1.
  • He was probably still on that table, breathless, remembering that magical experience.
  • "I'm fucking the shit out of him".
  • I blacked out after he said it.
  • I need to pause for a second to try to breathe.
  • ....
  • ......
  • ........
  • Oh dear God.
  • No, hold on, I am still not OK.
  • ...
  • .....
  • .......
  • OK, let's continue.
  • Did tumblr already make some fanart based on that? 
  • Cause they should.
  • Oh man, there's so much stuff inside my head right now.
  • I'm guessing Jill is WB publicist. Good God, she must have facepalmed so much on that day.
  • McAvoy literally fled the continent after that and promoted the movie in London. Here's he gets scared hilariously as he is doing the IT Experience thing.
  • Of course Bill did that.
  • Andy has nice moves!
  • Here's awesome talk with Bill and James, watch the embedded video, it's the whole interview!
  • And here's another one where we get to hear his James impression again!
  • More interviews with both of them (1,2,3,4,5)
  • Solo interviews (1,2,3,4,5). This one is 29 minute long! And this one is 17 minute long! He just talks and talks and I just smile and smile.
  • Bill and Finn interviewing each other. Here's the interview in GQ.
  • Here they play This or That.
  • We need him to tell that story during Oscar season. Academy voters love this kind of shit, you know, where the actor hurt himself filming. I love how each time he tells that story we get a bit more detail. First it was just that he pulled it. Then it was that all the other actors did a better job than him. Then it turns out he had to see a doctor. And then on Fallon's show he also talked of them actually having to use stunt double...for running.
  • In Jon's Snow's voice: I don't want it.
  • Here's Bill's awesome appearance on GMA. From the balloon thing (his laugh!) to him telling that Finding Dory story again, it's just so delightful.
  • Bill on Fallon's show! I didn't get Water War, but I did get that. It was dumb as hell but he made it work. His impression of Finn as Joffrey was insane and yes, again, the groin story!

  • He was also on The Daily Show but unfortunately it's not up on youtube so I cannot link it, but I did take that clip. This is what they are talking about.
  • So he is now getting money from HBO (Barry), Disney+ (Noelle) and Netflix. He literally got paid for THAT. I stan a rich badass, you guys.
  • Come on, Disney. Do you want my money or not?
  • Him breaking here was amazing.
  • And finally, I nearly died laughing watching this one. First during the dog moment but then him breaking while wearing that coat was really almost the end of me.
  • Brittani writes about TV series she watched in August
  • Diana reviews Network
  • Gemma shares her thoughts on It the novel
  • Keith shares first glance at The King


    1. Thanks for the link >:D<

      I'm so happy Bill Hader is getting this much attention and love. I've known him since SNL and loved him ever since. Stefon is one of my all-time favorite characters, and I love that he just goes all any project he's involved. Hopefully IT does well and he gets some awards attention.

      Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great day!

      1. You're welcome!

        Having seen the movie, I really don't think so. Muschietti just didn't use him enough, he should have focused the camera on him more in his emotional moments near the end. It would be lovely if he got something for it though, he really carried the movie

    2. Oh! You turned 30? Happy Birthday! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on It Chapter 2! I still need to watch the first movie!

    3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! 30 is a cool age. I remember back then..... never mind! LOL

    4. Happy belated Birthday! It looks like Bill gave you a lot of gifts this year. :D

      Harlequin's promo was so short before IT, but still cute.

    5. After having seen the film I can concur with all the critics your boy totally stole the show :) Future hopes for a movie with him and Finn Wolfhard actually getting scenes together.

      Lily Allen has always struck me as being famous for being a mess so good luck with that David.

      And Happy 30th!!! I swear it's not that bad!

    6. YAY 30! lol. It's not so bad. I mean, it kind of is, but nothing we can do about it, right?

      That Birds of Prey teaser looks pretty cool. I was worried considering all the pap picks and whatever the fuck they were doing with Harley's outfits. I hope it's good.

      Is it Monday? I want to see It 2.

      Thanks for the link!

      1. I really hope you like It 2! You'll laugh a lot, that's for sure :)

    7. I wish my problem was monkeys stealing stuff from me lol

    8. I saw the teaser for Birds of Prey before It Chapter 2, I thought the red balloons was the movie starting. Fooled :) Will return to read your full review of It 2. Happy 30th !

      1. Thank you! Yeah that was a clever way to disguise that teaser!

    9. Hader is so goddamned funny, I need to see more of him

      Those reviews on Joker were hilarious, it really wouldn't surprise me if they weren't written by a human. I know I'm a bit.. different from most people my age (see my comment on your most recent post heh =/) but I honestly think social media is one of the worst diseases created by man.

      90% of it is detrimental to mental health I think, and 99% of twitter users, especially from stuff you often post, seem to be completely brainless and again a ton of them are certainly bots, many essentially programmed to troll. Its kinda sad that we've sunk so low!

      But hey, all that Hader stuff cancels a lot of that out =D =D

      1. Social media is fine, it's the people who are idiots and don't know how to use it.

    10. oh and and I posted it in your It 2 post comments section, but happy birthday =] and I know I said this too but just like 30 creeps up on you before you know it, 35 is the same, and then suddenly you're suddenly staring down the barrel of 40 but you still feel like a 20-something!

      At least that is my situation atm =P I hope you enjoyed the day/night

      1. Well I feel like I'm 60 so this is not gonna happen to me :)

    11. wait wait, I just re-read this. Apple TV? They just got rid of the mandatory itunes stuff, but launch this?

      Totally agree, incredibly dumb decision to release it that way instead of on something err, normal like Netflix. Releasing it in this manner is essentially an invitation for piracy. Very very odd

    12. and another belated birthday wish on here!
      that finn impression is everything, BRING HIM TO ME!

      1. Thank you! :D Bill is amazing, all of that content is such a blessing :)

    13. That's some cold shit in the beginning. Ouch.

      Hahaha...hope you enjoyed your birthday and glad you liked the movie. I will get to my post eventually, but know that even I thought that Hader stole the f--king show, but good God was I drooling over Chastain. Rowr.

      Oh, and I'm totally digging Barry. That show is really, really...good. Can't believe I waited so long, though I'll probably finish it in my 40s...assuming I don't just die.

      1. I'm so glad you are watching - what a miracle by the way - and liking Barry! It's just so brilliant

        And come on. If I go all the world is losing is this column lol

    14. Oh I kind of like the Birds of Pray teaser even though it's awfully short and really makes me want to rewatch the first IT instead. :D I mean, they might have had good intentions but only if they manage to make a better movie than It1 will this work.

      Scarlett is... just... I have no words.

      Lily Allen isn't as bad... is she? What do we know about her? I only know her from Graham's couch and she has seemed nice on there.

      Anyway, I'm very excited for IT2 tonight and I will be even more excited to join the Bill train! :D

      1. I think she is like little famous Kardashian in UK or something, she just seems to share details about her personal life a lot and basically attaches herself to whoever will make her more famous

        oh Bill's train to be on :D
