Jordan Peele Is Developing A Series About Real-Life Nazi Hunters

Share Button

 

Jordan Peele is set to executive produce a TV series called The Hunt, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

The Hunt is based on true events, about the American government helping to hide real Nazis from punishment within our country’s borders back in the 1970s, and the band of people who set out to kill said Nazis in the name of justice.

The show apparently began to be shopped around following the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, VA, and is drawing interest from several networks, though none are confirmed to have bought the series as of yet.

Peele starred alongside Keegan Michael-Key in Key and Peele for five seasons, and also recently appeared on FX’s Fargo. He also wrote and directed the massive horror hit about racism, Get Out, the trailer for which you can watch below.

Move over, Angelina – there’s a new Lara Croft in town. Alicia Vikander, who won an Oscar for her supporting role in 2015’s The Danish Girl, is stepping into the iconic combat boots for the reboot of the franchise formerly helmed by Queen Jolie.

The 2001 film, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and its sequel, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, both based on the video game, have become something of cult classics for their portrayal of a tough female heroine oft-sporting skin-tight, bondage-y outfits.

In the new editionVikander will play a young Croft in search of her father, as directed by Roar Uthaug and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. It sees her on a quest to seal a tomb discovered by her dad: “Close the tomb once and for all. The fate of humanity is now in your hands,” a voiceover warns in the trailer.

The film is scheduled for releases March 16, 2018 through Warner Bros.

Missy Elliott took to VH1’s Hip Hop Honors stage last night celebrating ‘The 90s Game Changers,’ where she performed her 1999 single “She’s A Bitch.”

Dressed in an all-black latex ensemble in homage to the song’s original music video, directed by Hype Williams, Elliott was surrounded by masked, latex-clad dancers and a pool of water that aided some intense splash choreography.

 

The night was hosted by Girls Trip actor Regina Hall and celebrated the iconic people and moments of that memorable decade (as well as paying a special tribute to the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma). In addition to Elliott, Remy Ma, Mariah Carey, Lil’ Kim and Ty Dolla $ign performed.

Here’s the original 1999 “She’s A Bitch” music video.

The new trailer for Gaga’s Netflix documentary, “Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two,” has dropped, and it further reinforces the concept that our world is about to be shaken irrevocably.

In the new clip, Gaga talks about why she took to such outlandish outfits so wholeheartedly; and also confesses to her chronic pain, the crushing isolation of superstardom, and learning about her late aunt Joanne.

Chris Moukarbel’s documentary premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month and received a standing ovation from the crowd. Gaga hadn’t actually seen the film until the festival.

“Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two” is out this Friday, September 22. Take a look at the new trailer below.

 

Lady Gaga Postpones European Leg of Joanne Tour Due to Severe Physical Pain

Share Button

 

Lady Gaga has had to postpone the European leg of her Joanne World Tour due to severe physical pain, as she explained in an Instagram post today. She was scheduled to begin the next phase of her tour September 21 in Barcelona and conclude October 28 in Koln, Germany.

She wrote:

 

I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word “suffer” not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.

Gaga recently revealed she suffers from fibromyalgia, which causes head-to-toe severe pain and has no known cause. As a result, she had to cancel her performance at Rock in Rio a few days ago:

 

 

She’s still scheduled to finish the North American leg of the Joanne tour, with European dates being moved to early 2018.

Riz Ahmed Addresses Systemic Lack of TV Diversity in Emmys Press Conference

Share Button

 

Riz Ahmed won the Best Actor in a Limited Series at last night’s Emmy awards, becoming the first person of Asian heritage to receive an Emmy for acting. While this is significant, Ahmed pointed out in a press conference after his win that one trophy does not mean a finite change to the “systemic issue of inclusion.”

“I don’t know if any one person’s win, or one person snagging a role, or one person doing very well, changes something that’s a systemic issue of inclusion,” he explained. “I think that’s something that happens slowly over time. If there’s enough isolated examples of success over time then the dots start joining up and it is not as slow a process as it sometimes is.”

Take a look at his press conference.

 

 

In terms of diversity, this year’s Emmys proved historic: Donald Glover became the first black man to win an Emmy for comedy directing for Atlanta, and Lena Waithe became the first black woman to win for comedy writing for Master of None. 

Ahmed’s acceptance speech also addressed issues of race and xenophobia:

“It’s always strange reaping the rewards of a story that’s based on real world suffering,” he said. “If this show has shone a light on some of the prejudice in our society, Islamophobia, some of the injustice in our justice system, then maybe that’s something.” Take a look below.

Lana Sadly Drives Away From a Long-Haired Man in ‘White Mustang’ Video

Share Button

 

Lana’s just dropped the music video for “White Mustang,” and the best word to describe it is simply classic.

Lana wears a flowy floral gown. Lana straddles a man on her living room floor. Lana sips a cocktail. Lana drives away into the night while a long-haired man pursues her.

It’s certainly not anything to suprising from our Lady of Lamentation, but it’s the kind of scenarios Del Rey does best, and we’re here for it. There’s also a lot of thigh caressing, which is really fun.

“White Mustang” is off Lana’s latest album, Lust For Life, which has also seen the release of videos for the title track and “Love.” Take a look below:
