Billy Eichner’s Upcoming Gay Rom-Com Will Make History With All LGBTQ+ Cast

You probably know Billy Eichner from his hilarious ‘Billy on the Street’ show, where he basically fast walks across New York City yelling at people.

Here recently, he’s been getting more acting roles, and now he’s getting his own movie. He co-wrote a gay romantic comedy with Nicholas Stoller and the script was picked up by Universal Studios, which made him the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film.

But now there’s even more history being made. It was just revealed that it’ll feature a historic all-LGBTQ+ principal cast. Even the straight characters inside the film will be played by gay actors.

Eichner had this to say in a statement:

I could not be more proud or excited about the historic nature of the all openly LGBTQ+ cast of Bros. After queer actors have spent decades watching straight actors capitalize both artistically and professionally by playing LGBTQ+ characters, it is a long overdue dream come true to be able to assemble this remarkable, hilarious cast.

He goes on to say while this might be the first movie of its kind, he hopes it’s not the last.

The flick is being described as a “smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling toward love. Maybe. They’re both very busy.”

This rom-com is currently tilted ‘Bros‘ and it’s set to be released by Universal Pictures on August 12, 2022.

Watch Kristen Stewart Chase An Oscar In First Full Trailer For ‘Spencer’

There is a good chance we’re in for an awkward acceptance speech from Kristen Stewart at the upcoming Oscars because she’s currently the frontrunner to take home the Best Actress award.

Stewart stars as Princess Diana in the upcoming ‘Spencer’ film directed by Pablo Larrain. Her performance in the film is absolutely brilliant. If for some reason you were still doubting her skills as an actress, well, you won’t be for much longer.

The film debuted at the Venice Film Festival to rave reviews. Nearly every critic praised Stewart’s performance in the movie, which follows Diana in the cold December of 1991.

The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.

It’s truly a thrilling piece of work carried by Stewart’s lovely performance and Pablo’s vision as a director.

Neon will release the film inside theaters on November 5, 2021. Check out the full trailer below…

Eddie Murphy Signs Big Three-Picture, First Look Deal With Amazon Studios

Amazon Studios liked working with Eddie Murphy so much on ‘Coming 2 America’ that they’ve decided to hook him up with a three-picture and first-look deal.

He’ll star in three films for Amazon and help develop original programming for Prime Video and the studio, with the potential to star in them as well.

Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke, had this to say about the deal…

Eddie is a legend both in front of and behind the camera. With undeniable comedic and dramatic genius, he consistently delivers entertaining, original stories and characters to audiences around the world. We could not be more excited to help carry on the tradition and to officially welcome Eddie into the Amazon family.

Amazon has been quick to make similar deals with other actors in the past, including Michael B. Jordan and Nicole Kidman.

As some of you may remember, Amazon purchased the distribution rights to ‘Coming 2 America’ from Paramount for a cool $125 million.

Murphy’s next project will actually be with Netflix. He’s set to co-star alongside Jonah Hill in a Kenya Barris-directed comedy.

At 60-years-old, Murphy is staying busy and rich.

‘American Underdog’ Trailer, Watch Zachary Levi Star As Kurt Warner

I’ve been a huge fan of Zachary Levi ever since his days on ‘Chuck’ but I’ve never looked at him and thought, “Yeah, he could pass as a football player.”

But apparently the creative team behind the upcoming film ‘American Underdog‘ disagrees with me.

Levi stars in the sports biopic following the early career of NFL quarterback Kurt Warner. It tells the story about how he went from being a grocery store clerk to Super Bowl champion and MVP.

In addition to Levi, this film will also star Dennis Quaid, because he somehow ends up in all inspirational movies. Anna Paquin will be playing Kurt’s wife, Brenda.

American Underdog was directed by Jon and Andrew Erwin. It’s expected to be released inside theaters on December 25, 2021, and it should do well with families across the country. Americans love football and stories of the underdog, so as long as this movie is at least average, it should do very well.

Johnny Depp Has An Important Message For You…CANCEL CULTURE WILL DESTROY YOU!

The world has many things to worry about, including climate change, racism, evil dictators, income inequality, and the list goes on and on.

But for some people, cancel culture is the thing they’re worried about most. Johnny Depp attended a press conference preceding his Donostia Awards reception at the San Sebastian Film Festival, and during the press conference, one reporter praised the actor for his thoughts on cancel culture.

This sparked a bit of a rant from Depp…

It can be seen as an event in history that lasted for however long it lasted, this cancel culture, this instant rush to judgement based on what essentially amounts to polluted air. It’s so far out of hand now that I can promise you that no one is safe. Not one of you. No one out that door. No one is safe. It takes one sentence and there’s no more ground, the carpet has been pulled. It’s not just me that this has happened to, it’s happened to a lot of people. This type of thing has happened to women, men.

This dude is talking about cancel culture as if it’s COVID-19. “It’s happening to women, men…DOG…YEAH DOGS ARE GETTING CANCELLED! GOOGLE IT!”

I don’t mean to make fun. He does have a point. We do rush to judge, especially online. We refuse to wait until all the facts come out because if we wait, then no one will care about your super hilarious tweet anymore. It’ll be old news. The internet begs us to make quick judgements.

It’s something that needs to be changed, but at the same time, I think Depp should pull back on this a bit.

His relationship with Amber Heard was not as one-sided as he wants everyone to believe. Yes, she hit him, but he was also an angry drunk who hit her as well. Whether it was in self defense or not, who knows, but the two of them were toxic as hell. No one can come out of that relationship looking good.

Watch Denzel Washington And Frances McDormand In First Trailer For ‘Tragedy of Macbeth’

When you see that a movie is starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, you stop what you’re doing and take notice.

So, uh, stop what you’re doing.

Apple and A24 have released the first trailer for ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth‘ which stars Washington as Lord Macbeth and Frances as Lady Macbeth. This new adaptation of the classic play by William Shakespeare was directed by Joel Coen.

As you can see, the film was shot in black-and-white, and it will follow the couple’s murderous ploys for power over Scotland and their descent into madness.

This teaser trailer comes just a few days before the film is expected to premiere at the New York Film Festival on Friday. It marks Coen’s solo directorial debut, so it’s a pretty big deal for him, as he’s doing this without his brother.

Tragedy of Macbeth will have a limited release inside theaters on December 25, 2021.

Daniel Craig Doesn’t Think A Woman Should Play James Bond…UH-OH!

The world nearly ended when Hollywood decided to make an all-female remake of Ghostbusters, so we can only imagine the outrage if they made a female James Bond.

Even just talking about it has sparked a debate online, and wouldn’t you know it, Daniel Craig boldly walked his way into the debate.

In a recent interview with Radio Times, the 53-year-old actor who stars as James Bond for the last time in the upcoming film No Time To Die, was asked if he believes an actress should follow in his footsteps.

He responded:

The answer to that is very simple. There should simply be better parts for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?

Wow. He even included “actors of color” in the mix, which makes you wonder if he also believes James Bond should remain white.

I mean, I understand what he’s saying. We should be creating new characters and movies just in general, but as long as they’re remaking every movie ever made, maybe it would be cool if they remade them with a twist.

There could be some girl out there who has loved the James Bond franchise, and it’d probably mean the world to her to see a female lead the way. Or maybe it wouldn’t. I don’t know.

Craig’s comments seem to echo that of producer Barbara Broccoli, who told Variety…

I believe we should be creating new characters for women—strong female characters. I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.

But with a last name of Broccoli, who can really trust her opinion?

Watch The Always Lovely Tom Hanks In First Trailer For Sci-Fi Drama ‘Finch’

The first full trailer for the upcoming sci-fi drama ‘Finch’ has arrived this week, and it’s starring the great Tom Hanks.

Finch, which is being distributed by Apple TV+, is about the lone survivor of a global apocalypse who embarks on a journey to find a new home for his odd family — his dog and a freshly built robot.

This project was directed by Miguel Sapochnik from a screenplay by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell.

In addition to having a title change, Finch also switched distributors and premiere dates. The film was originally going to be released in theaters by Universal Pictures in October, 2020. The delayed film was then was acquired by Apple in August. The release follows up on Hanks starring in Apple’s World War II drama Greyhound last year.

Finch will no longer have a theatrical release, which is kinda shocking for a film starring Hanks, but these are unique times we are living in.

It’ll be released on Apple TV+ on November 5, 2021. Check out the trailer below…

Disney’s Shang-Chi Tops Box Office Once Again, Clint Eastwood’s ‘Cry Macho’ Fumbles

Well, Disney’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings continues to impress at the box office. In its third weekend of release, the Marvel superhero adventure film brought in another $21 million.

That’s only a 39% decline from its previous weekend. In total, the film has made nearly $180 million at the domestic box office. It’s made over $300 million globally, so it’s already earned its budget back and more.

The same can’t be said for Clint Eastwood’s latest film, Cry Macho, which brought in just $4.5 million from nearly 4,000 screens across the country. It was made on a budget of $33 million + marketing costs, so they still have a ways to go before they can make any sort of profit.

I mean, to put this in perspective, Cry Macho came in third this weekend in its debut weekend, losing the second place title to Free Guy, which has been in theaters for over a month now. Free Guy made $5.2 this past weekend bringing its global total to $298 million.

So what hurt Cry Macho? Well, the reviews were mixed, at best, and the younger audience just doesn’t care about Eastwood. 89% of Cry Macho ticket buyers were over the age of 35, which just isn’t gonna cut it, especially right now. You need that younger audience.

At 91-years-old, Eastwood isn’t exactly connected to the young folks. The failure at the box office should not be a surprise, and honestly, I don’t think COVID-19 is to blame. Sure, it can take a little of the blame, but I don’t think this film would have brought in great numbers regardless.

Next weekend, Dear Evan Hansen and The Eyes of Tammy Faye try to take out Shang-Chi.
