It’s been another rough Sunday for the Browns (I guess we really could say that every Sunday) and it just got worse. Not because the QB carousel is back on with Deshone Kizer getting benched again (this time for Cody Kessler), but because their ironman and 2nd best player in franchise history, Joe Thomas, just missed the first snap of his career.
That’s 11 years without missing a down. Over 10,000 snaps. Here’s how he got injured:
If you’ve been dying to see how Margot Robbie would transform to play infamous figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, wonder no more. The first teaser for the upcoming black comedy, which is one of the season’s most anticipated new movies, gives us a few brief glimpses of Robbie in action on the ice rink, much of which is actually her and not a stunt double. We also get a look at her taking a bat to Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver) in 1994 and some intense close-ups of costars Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney. An official release date is still up in the air, so you have plenty of time to mull over Tonya’s searing declaration at the end of the trailer: «There’s no such thing as truth, it’s bullsh*t.» Fair enough.
Our first good look at the Roseanne reboot is here, and our hearts are practically buckling under all of this nostalgia. Most of the cast of the beloved sitcom, which ran between 1988 to 1997, have returned to bring the Conner family back together again. ABC shared a photo of the first read-through on Wednesday, giving us an official glimpse at everyone who’s back on board.
Laurie Metcalfe (who played Roseanne’s sister, Jackie), Roseanne Barr, Sara Gilbert (Darlene Conner), Michael Fishman (D.J. Conner), and Sarah Chalke (who appeared as Becky in the show’s original run) all attended the table read. Although John Goodman’s character, Conner patriarch Dan, died in the series finale, it looks like even he couldn’t resist bringing the show into the 2000s (we’ll just go ahead and assure they’re ignoring that past plot point, à la the Will & Grace revival).
New additions to the cast include Shameless star Emma Kenney as Harris Conner (Sara and David’s daughter), as well as a few other young actors to play kids on the show. Despite some fresh faces on Roseanne, don’t expect things to change too much — the original show’s executive producers Barr, Tom Werner, and Bruce Helford are all working on the project (as well as Whitney Cummings, who is acting as corunner).
An official release date has yet to be announced, but we do know it’ll be back at some point in 2018. Better start clearing your calendars now!
29 years ago today, Roseanne debuted on ABC, and… wait, hold up for a second. I have to buzz my nurse to bring me a fresh big boy nappy along with my lunch of blended peas porridge. I made a poopy in the diaper she put on me this morning. And yes, I’m writing this from a nursing home since I’m old. I’m “I remember watching Roseanne’s pilot episode” old.
Yesterday, ABC celebrated the 29th anniversary of Roseanne’s birth by tweeting pictures from a table read for the revival, which comes out next year. From left to right is: the legendary Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne, D.J. Conner, the little girl who plays D.J.’s daughter, someone I don’t know, executive producer Whitney Cummings (yes, she’s an EP for some reason), another someone I don’t know, the Beckys, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Darlene’s gender creative child, and some others I don’t know. David (played by Johnny Galecki) is still “in talks” to join them all. And I’m assuming that in the picture above, John Goodman is covering his nose from a butt burp pooted out by one of the Beckys. Becky #1 totally blamed it on Becky #2 and vice versa.
Here’s another picture shared by actress Emma Kenney who plays the grown-up Harris Healey (aka Darlene and David’s daughter):
There’s something really, really off about these pictures. It’s weird how they’re all happy and smiling when the regular cast is incomplete! I already mentioned Crystal, but where’s Roseanne’ uppity cousin Ronnie (played by Dame Joan Collins), Nancy (played by Sandra Bernhard), Beverly (played by Estelle Parsons) and Morgan Fairchild?! How can they all agree to do that shit without those highly important five characters? I guess a check is a check. Scabs!
The song, titled «Walkin’ in Hawkins,» is the first song on the soundtrack and has the same kind of atmospheric synth feel that the Stranger Things theme song does. If you’re interested in speculating at what the rest of the song names on the soundtrack might mean, have at it:
1. «Walkin’ in Hawkins» 2. «Home» 3. «Eulogy» 4. «On the Bus» 5. «Presumptuous» 6. «Eight Fifteen» 7. «The First Lie» 8. «Scars» 9. «I Can Save Them» 10. «Descent Into the Rift» 11. «Chicago» 12. «Looking for a Way Out» 13. «Birth / Rescue» 14. «In the Woods» 15. «Digging» 16. «Symptoms» 17. «Eggo in the Snow» 18. «Soldiers» 19. «Choices» 20. «Never Tell» 21. «She Wants Me to Find Her» 22. «Shouldn’t Have Lied» 23. «It’s a Trap» 24. «Crib» 25. «The Return» 26. «Escape» 27. «We Go Out Tonight» 28. «Connect the Dots» 29. «The Hub» 30. «On Edge» 31. «What Else Did You See?» 32. «Run» 33. «Levitation» 34. «To Be Continued»
And it will almost make you forget for a second about the Black Panther superhero suit. I said almost, not completely. Like, I’m interested in this trailer, but I also want to know why that costume looks like a custom-made S&M gimp suit purchased by Panthro from Thundercats.
Today, Marvel dropped the first of what will no doubt be many trailers for Black Panther, which comes out February 2018. Normally I’m not too fussed about superhero movies, but I’m excited about this one because I’m into the fact that it doesn’t star someone named Chris.
Chadwick Boseman plays the titular Black Panther, king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. The trailer features everyone: Martin Freeman, Michael B. Jordan, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o. And a special guest appearance by ageless queen Angela Bassett as Black Panther’s mom, who I assume commanded her team of tailors to make her look like a sunrise if the sun was a doily.
Here’s the trailer, which looks like it takes place half the time in Africa, and the other half in a New York/Tokyo hybrid from the future. So kind of like the city in the new Blade Runner? Except unlike Blade Runner 2049, people are probably going to go to seeBlack Panther.
Something is confusing to me. Andy Serkis is playing…a human? That can’t be right. Maybe Andy Serkis filmed all his scenes in a motion capture suit and they CGI’d in a digital alien who happens to look like Andy Serkis in post-production. Honestly, we’re so used to seeing Andy Serkis playing Gollum and apes that it’s a little weird when he shows up playing himself.
Joe Jonas popped the question to Sophie Turner over the weekend, and their engagement has sparked renewed interest in their love story, specifically how they met. While most of us are probably thinking their first meeting was some extravagant, romantic affair, Sophie and Joe actually met through mutual friends. While not much else is known about how they were introduced, Sophie told Marie Claire earlier this month that she and Joe have already hit another important milestone: meeting each other’s parents. Sophie revealed that Joe met her parents at a pub in London, while she met Joe’s family during a ski trip.
Now that we’ve all had a sufficient amount of time to process the fact that Hocus Pocus is getting an unnecessary remake, we have another fact about the beloved Halloween flick for you to chew on: the Hocus Pocus we know and love was almost a much, much darker movie. While sitting down with Entertainment Weekly, Mick Garris — who wrote the first draft of the movie’s script in the 1980s — revealed the original conceit for the story about the Sanderson sisters was called Halloween House and wasn’t nearly as family friendly.
«What I had written originally was about 12-year-olds,» he told EW. «The kids being younger and in more jeopardy was certainly something more explicitly frightening.» He further explained that the movie eventually became more «broadly comedic,» adding in scenes like the devil one with Garry and Penny Marshall. Poor Billy Butcherson, however, was always going to lose his head (as if those lips weren’t bad enough . . .).
What’s even more interesting is that the movie nearly had Stephen Spielberg attached as director because the Hollywood legend fell in love with the broad idea. «He loved it until he found out that Disney was already involved,» Garris said. «At that time, Disney and Amblin were very competitive in the family-film market, so neither of them wanted to be in business with the other.» Garris went on to write the first script, and after a few tweaks, the rest is Halloween history.
Lauren Conrad’s son, Liam Tell, may only be 3 months old, but he’s already been to his first pumpkin patch. On Thursday, The Hills alum shared a photo of the special moment on Instagram, and between Liam’s lamb costume and his adorable facial expression, we can’t get enough of him! «This little lamb had his first trip to the pumpkin patch today 🎃» Lauren captioned the shot. We can’t wait to see what Lauren dresses him up as for Halloween!
