Warner Bros.’ Godzilla vs. Kong Trailer: Our Money’s on Kong - Vulture
First of all, he’s got some sort of gigantic magical axe.
While at first youd think Godzilla would be the clear winner, based on sheer size and his ability to slice through ships with his gnarly back ridge, King Kong is bringing a lot to the ring in Warner Bros. first full trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong. Not only does Kong have some kind of hand-hewn weapon that can block Godzillas atomic breath, hes apparently got a longstanding legendary grudge fueling his rage. The myths are real, Rebecca Halls Ilene Andrews explains. There was a war, and theyre the last one standing. The trailer is full of classic ominous monster-movie lines like that one hinting at a full-on behemoth battle, headlined by Godzilla and the greatest of great apes. We need Kong, Alexander Skarsgårds geologist, Nathan Lind, warns. The world needs him to stop whats coming. Worries Kyle Chandlers Dr. Mark Russell, Godzillas out there and hes hurting people, and we dont know why. Hopefully they can join forces with Millie Bobbie Brown, Brian Tyree Henry, Julian Dennison, and presumably the rest of the planets scientists to find a solution before all of the worlds capitals are stomped apart like so many Lego buildings. On humanitys side, at least, is Kongs relationship with tiny human child Jia (Kaylee Hottle), who hopefully can communicate with the gigantic simian from a safe distance during this whole escapade. Can they get Kong a big Bluetooth headset, maybe? Find out who comes out on top March 26, when Godzilla vs. Kong hits theaters and HBO Max simultaneously; the movie will be viewable on the platform for 31 days.
John Legend Is ‘Feeling Good,’ But Chrissy Teigen Is Feeling Better Because Biden Followed Her - Vulture
Because President Biden followed her on Twitter.
Whats cooler: performing for the President of the United States or being one of twelve people that he follows on Twitter? This is probably what John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are debating at this very moment, considering the events that transpired on inauguration day. On Wednesday evening, John Legend took the stage at the Tom Hanks-hosted prime-time inauguration event Celebrating America, and sang the classic Nina Simone song Feeling Good outside in front of the Lincoln Memorial, complete with a grand piano. Cool, right? While that seems pretty hard to top, Legends wife Chrissy Teigen might have him beat by becoming one of just twelve people that President Biden follows on Twitter. It all began the night before the inauguration, when Teigen presumably jokingly tweeted at Biden asking for a follow back after being blocked by the last president (whoever he was) for the past 4 years. Ask and ye shall receive in this new administration, apparently, as on Wednesday night Teigen revealed that she did, in fact, get the elusive follow back from Joe Biden. Teigen shares the distinction of being followed by the new and improved @POTUS account with the likes of Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, Domestic Policy Advisor Susan Rice, and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, naturally. After realizing that the President followed her, Teigen joked that she should prob never tweet again before almost immediately following that tweet with another tweet praising Katy Perrys inauguration night performance of Firework, so it looks like were in no danger of Teigen changing her Twitter presence now that she has a new famous follower, thank goodness. @POTUS is off to a strong start. hello @joebiden I have been blocked by the president for four years can I get a follow plz — chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 20, 2021 OH MY GOD !!!!!!!!!! https://t.co/BmBfkPZgEj — chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 21, 2021 I should prob never tweet again — chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 21, 2021
Please, Please Let Us Know If You Rescued Ben Affleck’s Ana de Armas Cutout From the Trash - Vulture
We will pay any price.
If there was any hope in your heart that news of Ana de Armas and Ben Afflecks alleged breakup was idle gossip, Ana de Armas Updates has come through with a definitive image of every relationships coup de grâce: the day you throw away your lovers cardboard cutout. A life-sized cardboard cutout of Ana de Armas from inside Ben Afflecks residence was seen being thrown out into a trash can, the Twitter account posted Monday evening, along with photos a masked man really making a meal out of tossing a cardboard cutout of de Armas into a trash can. Wait, can you not recycle cardboard cutouts of your lover?! The No Time to Die actress and the Way Back actor trolled the paparazzi with the cutout over the summer, during those heady days when you couldnt go an afternoon without seeing Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas drinking an inhuman amount of Dunkin while laughing and walking or, occasionally, walking and laughing. Ana de Armas Updates also alleges the person throwing out the cardboard cutout is none other than Afflecks brother Casey Affleck, implying Casey Affleck put together that ensemble, placed his reading glasses atop his camo sun hat, and took a cardboard cutout of his brothers one-time love to the curb in broad daylight. Some things just werent meant to last the new year, and by things, we do not mean that Ana de Armas cutout, because we have to believe someone pulled it out of the trash. If so, please, let us know! A life-sized cardboard cutout of Ana de Armas from inside Ben Afflecks residence was seen being thrown out into a trash can.

The Academy Bumps Best International Feature Shortlist Up to 15, Remove ‘Saves’ From Process - Vulture
And removes the three “saves” typically incorporated into the selection process.
The 2021 Oscars ceremony is just a little over three months away, but that doesnt mean we wont see more pandemic-related changes to this years awards season between now and then. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Academy recently decided to switch up the selection process for their Best International Feature shortlist due to concerns about their ability to protect the security of the process, now that it has to take place online. They are also expanding the shortlist from ten to 15 films. In a nutshell, the selection process usually entails a volunteer preliminary committee choosing seven movies in person, to which the international film executive committee adds three movies, or saves, typically films they feel have been overlooked and deserve a shot at the award. Which films are chosen by which committee is never publicly revealed. However, according to THR, the Academy has decided that holding the executive committees online deliberations via Zoom or a similar platform would leave them open to leaks or hacks. Rather than risk having their debate exposed, this years process will allow the preliminary committee to virtually choose the entire shortlist, which, again, will have 15 slots instead of ten. The Best International Feature shortlist, and many of this years other Oscars shortlists, will be announced on February 9, with nominees to be announced on March 15.
How Doug Liman Convinced Harrods to Let Him Shoot Locked Down in Its Vaults - Vulture
Doug Liman’s COVID heist movie began with a dare: write a screenplay, land financing, and rush into production, all while in quarantine.
For Doug Liman, the process of shooting a film called Locked Down during the coronavirus-induced lockdown a movie that will, in all likelihood, be watched by people still stuck in lockdown began with what he terms an insane idea. Over a Zoom meeting in July, the filmmaker behind hits like Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity hatched a plan with screenwriter-producer Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders, Eastern Promises) to write a screenplay, land financing, and rush into physical production by no later than September 2020. Despite a near-industrywide halt in filming (the megabudget event titles Mission: Impossible 7 and Jurassic World: Dominion being rare exceptions at the time), as well as the almost completely uninsurable nature of their project, Liman and Knight felt assured they could pull off their stunt. The end result? Locked Down was shot with blistering speed this year and will arrive on HBO Max on January 14. In the seriocomic feature, Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor play a London-based couple on the verge of breakup; suffering through forced quarantine cohabitation, they hatch a plan to pull an audacious jewelry heist at Harrods, the worlds most glamorous (and heavily fortified) department store. The script and our experience of making the film are almost the same story, Liman tells Vulture via Zoom conference link. Because Steve and I are locked down and were like, Lets escape by attempting this insane thing. When theres nothing going into production, every actor is available. Wed be the first independent film. Its totally uncharted territory. And the story were going to tell is this couple who attempt this audacious thing of robbing Harrods, he continues. Im not sure which one was riskier: the stealing of the diamond or the attempting to make a film under these circumstances. Liman, of course, is no stranger to exploding the boundaries of conventional filmmaking to suit his whims. Over the course of a storied quarter-century career that encompasses his 1996 indie breakthrough Swingers, the Palme dOrnominated biopic Fair Game, and the action-comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith(the crucible in which the the tabloid entity known as Brangelina was forged in 2005), he has repeatedly infuriated collaborators, ignored studio notes, and gone way overtime and tens of millions of dollars over budget in pursuit of his own subjective variety of cinematic excellence a process detractors and admirers alike now know as Limania. Directing Tom Cruise in the 2014 sci-fi action-thriller Edge of Tomorrow, a planned two-week shoot involving an alien invasion on Frances Normandy Beach stretched into three months of grueling, simulated combat courtesy of the directors self-described workshop-y style. During filming on Bourne in 2001, the director kept his production crew overtime to light a forest outside Prague so that Liman could play paintball. Then, when production delays, general on-set chaos, and screaming arguments with producers on that film culminated in a $10 million budget overrun, Liman reportedly considered selling his directors credit on eBay (with thenUniversal chair Stacey Snider threatening that he was never going to work again). Perhaps most notoriously, when 20th Century Fox attempted to place stricter financial boundaries on the filmmaker after Mr. & Mrs. Smith went $26 million over budget, Liman famously dipped into his own savings account to build a set in his mothers garage in upstate New York then unceremoniously destroyed it with a hand grenade. I was like, As long as we keep our production budget we can go in without COVID insurance.’ For a filmmaker who has shown little compunction about flying by the seat of his pants (in addition to repeatedly flying in the face of filmmaking convention by actually flying more on that in a minute), Liman established a number of hard-and-fast rules governing production on Locked Down. Before a single word of the script had been written, he and Knight endeavored to make something that could be shot safely, in which the leads could exist in a quarantine bubble and almost everyone else could be filmed from a distance. Actors were cast on the basis of certain real-life parallels: Ben Stiller, for one, landed the role of Hathaways smarmy boss in part because he, like the character, had a teenage son living with him under shelter-in-place rules. Anticipating that the pandemic would worsen over the course of the shoot, they would film quickly. And the whole thing would be done on the ultracheap although Liman declined to reveal how much Locked Down cost, he waved away a report the film had been shot for $10 million, insisting its actual budget started with a three. The idea was I would do it on spec, Steve Knight would do it on spec, says Liman, using industry lingo for on speculation that is, unsolicited by a studio, without commission from any financial backer and therefore much more risky for the creative team. I was like, As long as we keep our production budget we can go in without COVID insurance. The approach was: Were going to do this as cheaply as we possibly can because we dont know if its going to be possible to finish this movie. The entire cast, which also includes Ben Kingsley, Mindy Kaling, Stephen Merchant, and Lucy Boynton, signed on without reading a finished script. The understanding was there would be no reshoots, and the dialogue they enacted would effectively be the first draft of Knights script. For Ejiofor and Hathaway, the breakneck pace of completing principal photography in London in just 18 days required some unusual actorly shortcuts as well as a newfound tolerance for Limania. One particular day, it started raining when it wasnt supposed to and I needed to change the order of scenes, the director recalls. I turned to Annie and Chiwetel and I was like, I have to shoot tomorrows work today. And Chiwetels like, I havent even looked at it yet. And Annies like, I started memorizing it but by no means do I have it memorized. The week before, Liman recalls, he and his cast had been laughing at a picture from The Godfather, in which Marlon Brando has his lines taped inside another actors jacket. Just a handful of days later, it was an acceptable practice for their set. For that scene, we actually had to tape lines wherever [Hathaways and Ejiofors] eyelines were and just go. And its my favorite scene in the movie, by the way, Liman says. (Hathaway, for her part, called shooting under curve-flattening circumstances both very normal and completely wild.) Locked Downs third act was entirely contingent on the cooperation of Harrods: the Knightsbridge luxury menagerie which had never ceased operation in its 172-year history, and moreover, never allowed a film to shoot within its walls. Harnessing the same kind of the worlds been turned upside down, normal rules no longer apply, and why not? outlook as their characters, Liman and his producers approached the department store in July anticipating tricky negotiations. We said, We dont have a script. We dont have an idea for a movie. In fact, if you dont say yes, were not going to write the script because we dont have a Plan B. It can only be Harrods, the director recalls. Under normal circumstances, Harrods would never have said yes. But again, these are not normal circumstances. The store not only relinquished its food halls and retail showrooms to the production, Harrods enlisted its staff to stand in as extras and even allowed the filmmakers access to its innermost sanctum. We decided we wanted to shoot in the Harrods vault thats where the diamond [the characters want to steal] would come from, Liman says. And Harrods was like, No, thats our vault. And were like, Okay, would you let us just see your vault? Just so we can try to re-create it somehow? Its in this secret place in the building. They took our production designer and he took some pictures. From there, they were like, Okay, well let everybody in. You can shoot in the vault. You just cant show where it is in the building. I found myself in the vault with my producer Allison Winter. Theres an air lock to get in. The person who brought us there went out. I look at Allison and Im like, We are alone in the Harrods vault. We have literally become one with our characters. I flew myself across the Atlantic to make this film. I think because of the space film, Im in a mindset where Im more open to taking big, big swings. Where Locked Down can be understood as a kind of exercise in pushing the limits of cinematic restraint in finding unexpected freedoms in enforced enclosure, lets say Limans next movie aims to blaze into even less-charted territory. In May, Deadline announced he would boldly go where no film director has gone before, shooting an independently mounted action-adventure feature starring Tom Cruise in space. Elon Musks Space X and NASA are somehow reportedly involved. To date, little else has been revealed about the project. Liman demurs when I ask about that films plot points, timeline, and defying logistics, saying hes not ready to talk about that yet. But as a licensed pilot who flies his own light aircraft whenever his busy schedule permits, the director revealed an unexpected way making Locked Down helped him prepare not only to escape Earths orbit with Cruise but to keep pace with his own Limania. I flew myself across the Atlantic to make this film, the filmmaker says of Locked Down. It was terrifying. Landing in Greenland is not for the faint of heart! Most people think of astronaut training as being very physical, but its more like pilot training. I just thought I should push myself outside of my comfort zone. Because its going to be terrifying to go into outer space. I think because of the space film, Im in a mindset where Im more open to taking big, big swings.

Lana Del Rey Reveals, Immediately Defends New Album Chemtrails Over the Country Club Cover - Vulture
Damn, Lana, let us get a look at it first.
On Sunday, Lana Del Rey dropped the cover art and tracklist for her highly-anticipated upcoming album Chemtrails Over the Country Club, which will include songs like Tulsa Jesus Freak and Not All Who Wander Are Lost, as well as the EPs previously-revealed single, Let Me Love You Like a Woman, which premiered this past fall. In an interesting nod to the plot of Christopher Nolans Tenet, the singer also penned an Instagram comment in which she attempts to reverse the flow of the Internets entropy and defend Chemtrails cover art against any and all future criticisms that could be leveled at it, including, seemingly, that her inclusion of women of color could be seen as an attempt to counteract her bad press from this spring. In fact, Del Rey goes wide enough to conclude with the lines: Im not the one storming the capital, Im literally changing the world by putting my life and thoughts and love out there on the table 24 seven. Respect it. Phew! I also want to say that with everything going on this year! And no this was not intended-these are my best friends, since you are asking today. And damn!, the singer wrote in the since-deleted comment, captured here by Stereogum. As it happens when it comes to my amazing friends and this cover, yes, there are people of color on this records picture and thats all Ill say about that. But thank you. My beautiful friend Valerie from Del Rio Mexico, my dearest friend Alex and my gorgeous friend Dakota Rain as well as my sweetheart Tatiana. These are my friends, this is my life. We are all a beautiful mix of everything - some more than others, which is visible and celebrated in everything I do. In 11 years working I have always been extremely inclusive without trying to, continued Del Rey. My best friends are rappers, my boyfriends have been rappers. My dearest friends have been from all over the place, so before you make comments again about a WOC/POC issue, Im not the one storming the capital, Im literally changing the world, my putting my life and thoughts and love out there on the table 24 seven. Respect it. Back in May, the singer defended herself against criticism that her comments comparing her perceived reception to that of female artists of color like Beyoncé, Doja Cat, and FKA Twigs came across as tone deaf and racially insensitive. The fact that they want to turn my post, my advocacy for fragility into a race war, Del Rey said in a subsequent video attempting to clarify her statement. Its really bad. Its actually really bad.
Arial Pink Dropped by Record Label, Mexican Summer, After Attending Trump Capitol Rally - Vulture
The musician says he was at Wednesday’s pro-POTUS rally, but didn’t take part in storming the Capitol.
According to Pitchfork, following his attendance of Wednesdays pro-Trump Save America rally, which ballooned into an attack on the Capitol, Ariel Pink has been dropped by his record label. Due to recent events, Mexican Summer and its staff have decided to end our working relationship with Ariel Rosenberg AKA Ariel Pink moving forward, the label tweeted Friday. Mexican Summer, which released Pinks most recent album, 2017s Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, was set to reissue several of the singers remastered albums, including Odditties Sodomies Vol. 1, Sit n Spin, Scared Famous/FF>>, and Odditties Sodomies Vol. 3, on January 29. Pink was spotted on social media alongside fellow indie musician John Maus at the January 6 demonstration in Washington D.C., after which a mob of the Presidents supporters smashed their way into the Capitol while Congress was in session to ratify Presidential-elect Joe Bidens electoral victory. Pink, however, denied taking part in the melee that has left a Capitol Police Officer and four protestors dead. i was in dc to peacefully show my support for the president, the musician wrote in response to a user. i attended the rally on the white house lawn and went back to hotel and took a nap. case closed. Tweet Pink on Wednesday, vote for trump.
Taylor Swift Releases evermore Bonus Tracks, Offers Distraction From Turmoil - Vulture
Is that a Scooter Braun callout we hear?
Rain or shine, pandemic or riot, you better believe Taylor Swift is gonna release her new songs. The pop star, who seemingly hasnt taken a break all year, gave us two more tracks from her folklore companion album evermore Wednesday night with the release of the deluxe edition on streaming platforms. The expanded album was previously only available in physical formats, making it the first time songs right where you left me and its time to go are available online. On right where you left me, above an old Taylor-reminiscent guitar twang, Swift sings about a relationship that has her dwelling on the past. Did you ever hear about the girl who got frozen? / Time went on for everybody else / She wont know it / Shes still 23 inside her fantasy / How it was supposed to be, she sings while we frantically Google who Taylor Swift was dating at 23. Over on its time to go, her words will be familiar to women whove had to walk out of relationships to save themselves. A few lyrics are so specific, however, fans see it as an aching response to losing her music rights to her former longtime label head Scott Borchetta of Big Machine and music manager Scooter Braun, who bought and sold her catalogue for over $300 million. Fifteen years, 15 million tears / Begging til my knees bled / I gave it my all, he gave me nothing at all / Then wondered why I left / Now he sits on his throne in his palace of bones / Praying to his greed / Hes got my past frozen behind glass / But Ive got me, she declares. Taylor Swift spent the second half of 2020 creating two albums and rerecording her first five. These men are lucky they may have gotten away with a line in a bonus track, not a whole concept album fantasizing about their mysterious disappearances. No body, no crime.
All You Wanted for Christmas Is to Stream Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ - Vulture
“All I Want for Christmas Is You” reportedly broke Spotify’s single-day streaming record.
Santa Claus couldnt make you happy with a toy on Christmas Day, but at least one enduring seasonal icon brought you joy this December. According to TMZ, Mariah Careys 1994 (and forever) holiday hit All I Want for Christmas Is You reportedly boarded a rocket-powered sleigh and blew past Spotifys single-day record with over 17,223,000 million streams. Wow, the singer tweeted Friday in response to the news. I know people think Im making coin (lil secret: artist make very little from streams) but the real reason Im sitting here in astonishment & gratified is seeing the joy this little song I wrote brings the people. THANK YOU & MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! The modern classic already hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 again earlier this month, the same slot it snagged the first week of January 2020 and, unless another musical superstar wants to drop a massive single right this moment, will likely have early next month. Honestly, with the way this year has been going, streaming All I Want for Christmas Is You 17 million times a day might just be the way to get through the next six months, nine months, or until its Christmas time all over again

Early Hip-Hop Legend John ‘Ecstasy’ Fletcher Of Whodini Is Dead at 56 - Vulture
Questlove memorialized the co-founder of the early Brooklyn hip-hop group.
John Ecstasy Fletcher, member of the early, influential hip-hop group Whodini, has died at the age of 56, People reports. A cause of death has yet to be revealed. The first to publicly announce the rappers passing, Questlovetook to Instagram Wednesday to memorialize Fletcher, who, along with bandmate Jalil Hutchins, founded the group in 1982. One Love to Ecstasy of the Legendary #Whodini, wrote The Roots drummer. This man was legendary and a pivotal member of one of the most legendary groups in hip hop. This is sad man. DJ Drew Carter, also known as Grandmaster Dee, who joined the group in 1986, confirmed the rappers passing to Variety. Based out of Brooklyn, Whodini recorded six studio albums in total, producing 14 charting singles including One Love, Friends, Five Minutes of Funk, Freaks Come Out at Night, The Haunted House of Rock, and more, with crossover hit Friends cracking the Billboard Hot 100 in 1984. Their song, Magics Wand, a tribute to New York DJ Mr. Magic, is credited with being the first hip-hop song with a music video. Whodinis final album, 1996s Six, was executive produced by Jermaine Dupri, who also posted in remembrance of Fletcher on Wednesday. My God, this one hurts me so bad, I cant even believe Im posting this, Ex you know I love you, Dupri tweeted, alongside a video of a baby-faced Whodini in 1985. Thank you for every word, every conversation, every good time, may your soul Rest In Power.
Old Yeller Tom Cruise Is Reportedly Dating His Mission Impossible: 7 Co-star Hayley Atwell - Vulture
But is their relationship COVID safe?
Wow, would you look at that timing? Days after Tom Cruise went viral for going ballistic at the crew of Mission Impossible: 7 for breaking COVID-19 protocols allegedly resulting in 5 crew members quitting the film, the Daily Mail reports that Tom Cruise has begun dating his co-star, Criminals Hayley Atwell. In a brazen attempt by Cruises publicist to change the negative press surrounding him - errr I mean, in a totally randomly timed series of events, on Thursday a source told The Sun that the 58 year-old Cruise and the 38 year-old Atwell have become fairly inseparable and that they hit it off on day one. The anonymous source goes on to say that the restrictions of lockdown sparked their romance. Lockdown, and all the difficulties that came with it, brought them even closer, said the mystery person who is definitely not on Cruises payroll. Theyve been meeting up after hours, and shes been to his London pad. They get on brilliantly, and both seem very happy. Interesting, very interesting. Well, in any case, we hope the happy couple continues to get on brilliantly and that Cruise never yells at Atwell the way he yelled at those crew members.
