Taylor Swift missed a pretty crazy movie cameo, and we need a moment to process what we missed.

She may have appeared on screen in TV shows like ITUC and new girlas well as the star-studded 2010 romantic comedy Valentine’s daybut the pop icon could have been an integral part of 2000s film culture: Dusk.

Chris Weitz, director of The Twilight Saga: The New Moon— starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and the second of five bestselling book films — confirmed the film almost had a cameo from Taylor Swift.

In a recent interview on The twilight effecta podcast hosted by the actor and Dusk star Ashley Greene, he opened up about his decision to ultimately turn Taylor down when his agent came to call him. “Taylor Swift and I had the same agent at the time, and he said, ‘Taylor would love to be in this movie, not because of you, but she’s a Twi-hard,'” Weitz said.

Turns out Swift wasn’t even going to get any screen time here, she just wanted to be a part of the vampire universe we were all, admittedly, obsessed with at that time. Her agent reportedly told Weitz, “She’ll be somebody in the cafeteria, or restaurant, or whatever, but she just wants to be in this movie.”

Alas, that was not to be the case. The New Moon The director decided that ultimately having such a star appear in the background of the film was likely to attract attention. “The hardest thing for me was thinking, ‘By the time Taylor Swift comes on the screen for about five minutes, nobody’s going to be able to process anything,'” he said.

She’s a show-stealing queen in the absolute best way, so we see the logic. But that doesn’t mean Weitz doesn’t regret his decision. “I was like, ‘Wow, I could have hung out with Taylor Swift, and maybe we could have been friends or something,'” he said, also expressing his fear of having offended the star by turning her down. .

“She must have just said, ‘Who is this idiot who would say no?'” he said. “But sometimes you make decisions and you’re like, ‘It’s for the best of the movie.'”

One stormy night in a remote mansion, a group of über-rich friends play a seemingly harmless game of murder in the dark. Working-class newcomer Bee (Maria Bakalova) can tell something’s wrong – and when the first real corpse appears, everyone else realizes it too.

It’s a risky yet perfect move to use Azealia Banks’ hit song ‘212’ as the first big needle drop in Body Body Body. The singer has been at the center of countless controversies over the years: physical altercations, online arguments, accusations of racism and some wildly misguided comments about President Putin. It’s the kind of unacceptable behavior that seems entirely at home in director Halina Reijn’s intelligent and often deliciously insufferable satire of slasher comedy.

Everyone here is boring and no one makes good decisions, which makes the violent chain of events unleashed on these horrible people so much fun to watch. It begins when recently sober Sophie (Amandla Stenberg) proudly brings her new girlfriend Bee (Maria Bakalova) to a party at her longtime best friend David’s (Pete Davidson) mansion, showcasing an ensemble that includes David’s girlfriend Emma (Chase Sui Wonders), their headstrong friend Jordan (Myha’la Herrold), insufferable podcaster Alice (Rachel Sennott), and her latest Tinder take, older vet Greg (Lee Pace). It’s immediately uncomfortable, old friends quickly realizing they no longer love each other; a (horrifically entertaining) night of petty grievances quickly spins out of control when the actual death joins the growing list of blame.

Baby ShivaSennott gives a remarkable performance with his grating and desperate narcissism.”

For anyone who’s been unlucky enough to spend time on the internet lately, this whodunit feels fresh for the genre but painfully familiar. The jokes often revolve around the subversion of social media buzzwords, real issues turned into online culture wars: gaslighting, tripping, silence, safe spaces, seasonal depression and astrology as a religion are all confused. Or rather the tendency of social media to amplify these issues to the point that they define your whole personality. “Congratulations, you have a Twitter account!” David spits at Emma – and seems to berate us, the audience, for having one too.

There are as many, if not more, opportunities to laugh at these terrible rich kids as there are moments of horror. Baby ShivaSennott gives a standout performance with his grating, desperate narcissism, but the whole band hits the delicate mix of hatefulness and incompetence almost perfectly. The tone may not be for everyone, but the extremes are what make it so interesting.

Spending so much time with such miserable characters might seem like too much, if the movie wasn’t so well done. Reijn deploys the violence with slick stylistic flourishes, as glow sticks and phone torches give the night a tension that’s more scary than eerie, and video game composer Disasterpeace mixes dirty pop and glittery melodies to inject a constant discomfort in this never silent night. . Even though things will always be more horrible for them than for you, the skill of Body Body Body is to give the impression that someone could really be waiting in the shadows once the noise has stopped. Being canceled is bad, being murdered is worse.

Tense when it needs to be and terrifically fun throughout. Stupidity reigns supreme for these rich kids, but the filmmakers are smart enough to make Bodies Bodies Bodies stick the landing.

Soldier Boy is back on the ice now after causing a deluge of death, including Maeve, Vought’s bravest lesbian heroine, and general mayhem. But that doesn’t mean Vought International still isn’t celebrating this good old American hero. In The boys season three, we got glimpses of red thunder, a 1983 film featuring Soldier Boy as he takes on the Reds. Now it’s available on the fictional Vought++ streaming service which we totally wish was a real thing. (We would have loved a Black Noir horoscope show.) And it’s just as ridiculous as anything from a supe.

The content warning is a clear dig at the streamers who set them up as to why they have extremely offensive content available. In it, Vought dismisses Soldier Boy’s actions, blaming the Russians for radicalizing him. Nevertheless, the disclaimer reminds us that he is still an American hero and that we can “learn” something from this propaganda. I mean…movie. Please don’t send A-Train to run me over.

Brave Soldier Boy (whom Jensen Ackles still plays to perfection) is tied up. And he faces a Soviet commander named Yuri. The latter threatens the American captive, saying that he does not look like a hero. Soldier Boy jokes that he’s in town buying some rugs, punches himself in the stomach, and claims he’ll kill any Commie bastards who try to hurt his fellow Paybacks. He comes off a good line saying, “God would have mercy. I will not do it.

First video

The Soldier Boy movie clip continues with Yuri taunting him while Soldier Boy plays the heartfelt hero. He does this with a very thin veil, but it works long enough for the TNT twins to hit Yuri. The three run to the airfield to stop a strike and, well, I want to see the rest of this movie now.

The highly anticipated Thor: Love and Thunder is in theaters now and adds another beloved film to the franchise. With so many MCU movies and series already released, it’s hard to keep track and remember all the events that happened to beloved superheroes in previous cinematic plays.

Understanding the new Thor title may require going back and rewatching several movies, but choosing which one to rewatch or see for the first time is a tough call, especially if you’re not interested in following the movie. order of release dates. There are plenty of wonderful movies to choose from in the MCU, and luckily, astrology has the answers for which movie best matches each zodiac sign.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Aries – The Incredible Hulk (2008)


The Incredible Hulk 2008

Aries is known to be emotionally unstable. They can have very strong feelings about things and act on them, which usually drives them to do whatever they want and talk unfiltered. In other words, they are impulsive and often brash.

No other MCU superhero understands Aries better than the Hulk, and as a result, his film about his struggles with his troubles can be relatable and engaging for air sign viewers.

Taurus – Avengers: Endgame (2019)


2019 Avengers: Endgame is one of the films that reached $1 billion at the box office and not without reason. The film tells the story of the heroes’ last battle against Thanos, which kept everyone on their toes.


Taurus likes stability, and of all the MCU movies, End of Game is the only one that offers a somewhat happy and peaceful ending. The film’s conclusion focuses on appreciating the finer things in life, like the company of loved ones, and no other sign knows how to rejoice in that simple fact better than Taurus.

Gemini – Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)


Many tropes of guardians of the galaxy movies have become guidelines for the MCU, like fully exploiting their soundtrack, embracing goofy heroes, and aiming for adult audiences. Geminis are known for finding humor in everything and this movie best matches their funny personality.


The film really benefited from following a band passionate about opposing concepts like outlaw heroes, dancers and non-dancers, humans and aliens, flora and fauna. They are some of the things Geminis may find relevant, given that they know a little too well how to be both sides of the coin.

Cancer – Thor: Love and Thunder (2022)


Jane and Thor face each other against a pink background in Thor: Love And Thunder

Cancer is a very affectionate and sensitive sign, therefore they shiver in movies where they can sigh about romance, laugh until they can’t breathe and cry about tragedy. Fortunately for them, Thor: Love and Thunder has it all as it follows the fates of one of Phase 4’s best MCU couples, Jane Foster and Thor Odinson.


The fourth title in the Thor franchise delivers the perfect amount of jokes, happiness, love, fear, heartbreak and grief for Cancerians to feel all their deep and intense emotions about life. Although for the same reason, they might take the movie home and feel sad and happy for a few days.

Lion – Iron Man (2008)


Leos love to be in the spotlight and be the best at what they do, and Tony Stark may be the perfect inspiration for the sign to achieve its next big goal. The beloved hero’s debut film is the best of his franchise, at least according to IMDb, and portrays the best aspects of being king of the jungle.

However, it also reflects the ambition of the zodiac sign which can lead to blindness. As Tony Stark wanted to follow his father’s legacy and lead the best military weapons company in the world, he realized his industry was causing many people grief and decided to change direction, which that Leos can learn from.

Virgo – Doctor Strange (2016)


MCU Doctor Strange Ancient One Sorcerer Supreme

Virgos love knowledge, method, and practicality. They can be quite perfectionist and logical, causing them to be skeptical of many things. The story of Doctor Stephen Strange can provide Virgos with all the lessons they need to open up to the wonders of life, though they still try to be rational about everything.

Doctor Strange is tied to Virgos, especially in his first film. His deep love for science and medicine made him doubt the words of the Elder who had much to teach him about the mystical arts. Perhaps the zodiac sign can learn to approach life differently and enrich themselves with new experiences just like Strange.

Libra – Avengers: Infinity War (2018)


Avengers Infinity War Marvel Comics

Libras like balance, so it’s likely that infinity war’Thanos’ end – when Thanos has achieved his goal and wiped out half the universe – gives them plenty to talk about. They’ll likely find reason with Thanos’ arguments and argue that life is better when everyone has enough resources for a suitable lifestyle.

Libras are very prone to questioning and debating concepts of kindness, and Infinity War provides all the right questions about right or wrong and right or wrong. Any Libra will be drawn in to discuss Thanos’ goal as the ultimate solution to the galaxy’s grief and any other possible solution to the universe’s crisis.

Scorpion – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022)


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Cropped Poster

This year Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is one of the best fantasy horror movies according to IMDb and explores many themes that Scorpios loves and can relate to. The zodiac sign is truly complex and likes to unfold and explore the deeper meanings of life, even if that means facing darkness, pain, and death (themes heavily used in the film).


The movie has a dark, twisted tone that Scorpios know how to appreciate. It also has the sad endings that the sign finds inevitable and some trippy scenes that the Arachnida will surely love. In most aspects, this film appears to be written and directed by a Scorpion himself, which he actually is.

Sagittarius – Captain Marvel (2019)


captain marvel poster

Sagittarius loves adventure and can be really independent of everyone. They usually jump from place to place and job to job, which is exactly what Captain Marvel does in her first movie. His strong personality and committed journey to prove his self-esteem can be very inspiring for Sagittarius who may feel connected to one of Marvel’s most powerful superheroes.

Above all, Sagittarius values ​​freedom. For them, watching a female lead shatter all prejudice against her gender and pursue an exciting life of helping others must be absolutely extraordinary, and so Captain Marvel must be the next movie they watch.

Capricorn – Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)


Captain America the First Avenger and the Girls

Capricorns are very mature and are generally drawn to themes that relate to righteousness, responsibility, and duty. In his first film, Captain America explores the depth of these concepts and is troubled by the complexity of doing the right thing, which a Capricorn understands a lot.

The zodiac sign also loves discipline and pragmatism, and both things are actually covered throughout the film. After all, it’s a movie about soldiers and military duty. Capricorns can find inspiration in Steve Rogers, who follows all the interests of the sign.

Aquarius – Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)


Spider-Man and Doctor Strange in Spider-Man No Way Home

Aquarius is very humanitarian, however, they have a very unpopular view of what is ideal. Although they have the best intentions and think they are making the smartest choices, their decisions can sometimes seem unrealistic because they have a very unique way of seeing the world.

Peter Parker’s decision to redeem the villains and give them another chance wasn’t easy to understand, and his other solutions to other problems caused him to be forgotten by all. These drastic consequences of well-meaning actions can be fully understood by Aquarius who will find more depth in the Spider-Man movie than anyone else.


Pisces – Black Panther (2018)


MCU Black Panther

Pisces loves all things artistic and creative, so they’re the best sign to appreciate all the wonderful clothing, makeup, dances, music, masks, war paint, jewelry, and weapons that were culturally based. African. Black Panther. Few other MCU movies have been as culturally and artistically rich as T’Challa’s film, so for Pisces it’s a must.

Additionally, the film reflects on empathy and togetherness, and the water sign is best known for knowing both concepts all too well. Pisces’ strength and weakness is empathy, and King T’Challa has an intense journey of what the gift of empathy means and entails when trying to change the world.

Terrence Malick’s “Song to Song” is quite a polarizing film, having divided many critics who have seen it. For one, the film’s style is quite experimental and it doesn’t follow a familiar linear narrative. Set in the music scene of Austin, Texas, the film follows two overlapping love triangles, exuding themes of obsession, seduction and, of course, rock ‘n’ roll. Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling) are struggling songwriters who meet Cook (Michael Fassbender), a successful music mogul. A waitress (Natalie Portman) also becomes wrapped up in their chaotic world.

It’s hard to really describe the plot of the film because there isn’t much of it to speak of. An ambitious project hated and loved in equal measure, “Song to Song” can best be described in terms of the sign of Aquarius. Known as the humanitarians of the zodiac, Aquarians are eccentric, cerebral, and often deliberately esoteric. They tend to be more interested in the idea of ​​humanity than in the individuals themselves, focusing on ideas rather than emotions. They crave personal freedom above all else, which means they often feel like outcasts.

“Song to Song” is certainly an esoteric and eccentric film, which is why the sign of Aquarius is an appropriate symbol. Aquarians too can be polarizing characters, and if you’re an aquarium yourself, chances are you’ll enjoy the movie for its boldness alone. (The sweet cameos from Florence and the Machine and Patti Smith don’t hurt either.)

Both nostalgic and COVID-safe, drive-in theaters have enjoyed a deserved resurgence over the past two years, including throughout the Chicagoland area. For those who don’t like inflated popcorn prices or rushing through crowded indoor venues (thanks, Tom Cruise), outdoor and drive-in movies offer the same cinematic and communal experience, minus the sky-high prices or the risk of catching the latest Omicron variant while catching the latest Marvel games.

In and around Chicago, outdoor movies offer a family-friendly alternative. Though drive-in theaters have dwindled since their Americana heyday, a few holdouts are still strong in the suburbs — and well worth the mini road trip for affordable double features and old-school concessions like candy and hot dogs in cash only. Meanwhile, if you’d rather roll out a picnic blanket and BYO snacks, Chicago offers plenty of outdoor movie-going experiences all summer long across the city. Whether you’re looking for an American blast from the past or a laid-back neighborhood outing to a park, here are the best drive-in and drive-in theaters near Chicago.

While this is certainly true of most drive-ins, a business zigzags against the zag right in the heart of Chicago. ChiTown Movies is a full-fledged drive-in cinema in Pilsen, the mural-covered district on the southwest side. The theater is surprisingly huge for an urban lot, with plenty of room for 10 rows of cars, all angled towards a gigantic screen projecting unique elements like shrek, The Sandlotand the most Chicago movie of all time, Ferris Bueller’s day off. Customers can order dishes, such as pizzas, tacos and wings, which will be delivered directly to their window.

Robyn Lively and her husband and frequent co-star Bart Johnson are so photogenic, it’s no wonder they’re actors.

Starring in this week’s Pure Flix movie “Strong Fathers Strong Daughters,” the channel’s first original film, they play – unsurprisingly – a happily married couple with a surprising and sudden marriage in their immediate future.

“We often work together,” Lively, 50, said in a phone interview. “But the difference with this one and why it’s so special to us is that we’ve never had so many scenes together. We’ve never played as a couple.

“We worked together. Like “Gortimer Gibbons” — an Amazon family comedy — “I did 40 episodes of that show. I think he’s made eight and I’m pretty sure we might have a line or two against each other throughout the process of the series. So it was a real treat for both of us.

A Yale drama graduate, Johnson, 51, is best known for playing Zac Efron’s father on the Disney series “High School Musical.”

Her father ‘Strong Fathers’ can’t quite fathom that all of his plans for his brilliant daughter to become a partner in his business are now ancient history as she prepares to marry her Mexican beau before surrendering in Kenya for three years.

Does it sound like the recent remake of “Father of the Bride”?

“My husband and I thought the same too. We’ve seen a ton of parallels between ‘Father of the Bride’ and this movie,” which is actually based on a bestselling book of the same title.

Tackling serious subject matter like a father learning to let his daughter go her own way in life and treating her with slapstick silliness is, Lively said, “sometimes the best way to deal with difficult issues, isn’t That’s what I learned as a parent anyway.

Married for 22 years and mother of three children, she began her career in Georgia shortly after learning to walk.

“I was brought up in a close-knit family and started working when I was 3 if you can believe it, doing commercials.”

The marriage between two actors has a less than stellar track record in Hollywood.

“The critical element is that there is no competition between the two of us. We both support each other.

“Also, in raising children, we never have jobs that line up simultaneously. He is able to hold the fort when I am there and vice versa.

As for ‘Strong Fathers,’ “We’re laughing,” Lively said, “because we’ve been preparing to play a couple for 23 years. We hoped we’d pulled it off.


“Strong Fathers Strong Daughters” airs Monday on Pure Flix.

There’s a fight in the subway. There is a fight in an old building. There is a fight on a busy road. But why are they fighting? The question persists for a long time watching Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain Returns. Billed as a spiritual successor to his 2014 film Ek Villain, this sequel is thoroughly painful, pointless, and psychotic. Obviously, just one bad story isn’t enough to make a film below average. In the case of Ek Villain Returns, there’s a lot more that contributed to the end result. Slow writing, lazy direction, half-baked characters, and insane twists and turns all came together to make what could have been a biting thriller, a rather boring watch.

And if that wasn’t enough, you’ve got four actors so terribly wasted here. Two macho men – John Abraham and Arjun Kapoor – showcasing their best action hero avatar, then two pretty girls – Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria – trying so hard to make sense of their characters – yet no quartet could save Ek Villain Returns.

A serial killer is on the prowl (Riteish Deshmukh is sorely missed here) and ruthlessly kills young girls with twisted love affairs. Gautam (Kapoor) is a spoiled rich brat, who has a sort of love-hate relationship with Aarvi (Sutaria), who we mostly see singing on stage at outdoor theater concerts. Cut to an intense, introverted taxi driver Bhairav ​​(Abraham) who falls in love with Rasika (Patani), a saleswoman at a posh store who has a thing for materialistic pleasures. After a while, Kapoor and Abraham are introduced as abandoned lovers and begin to move in peculiar ways. Mind you, it’s not clear now who the serial killer is, who the villain or the hero is. The yellow mask is back, but who’s behind it takes forever to reveal.

Thirty minutes into the movie and we’re still being told how Gautam and Aarvi met and fell in love, got revenge, fell in love again, broke up et al. Still no clarity on the plot. Even during Bhairav’s taxi rides, we only see him obsessing over Rasika and continually asking for “notes”. But why? Why can’t he see her vile intentions? Why doesn’t Gautam tell Aarvi that he loves her? Why do one-sided lovers face the weight of this villain? Why does Mohit Suri unnecessarily complicate a simple script? Why don’t we get answers to most twists at the right time?

At 128 minutes, thankfully, the film isn’t too long, but however many hours you spend watching the story unfold, you just want it to speed up and reveal what really happened. past. Additionally, the non-linear storytelling proves a failure as there is virtually no difference in how these characters look. So it just gets confusing with every flashback.

In terms of performance, I wasn’t expecting much from Sutaria and Patani anyway given that they were simply used as props to give the men in their lives an agenda and decide their actions. Their character never really arches. Patani’s weird laugh is rather annoying and gives you a headache. Sutaria tries hard but she can only do what the script asks her to do.

Abraham, for me, turned out to be quite a surprising cast for this part only because I expect him to do so much better. Ek Villain Returns puts him in a box and just won’t let him break free. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time Abraham had so few lines in a movie. Of all of them, Kapoor happens to shine and take the cake. Her character has undertones that you can identify with. In the supporting cast, actors JD Chakravarthy and Shaad Ali as cops have so little to play that you feel bad for them. They are made to appear and disappear from the story according to the director’s whim and fantasy.

Not to mention, soul track Teri Galliyan was covered as Galliyan Returns and plays in the background throughout the film. The rest of the album is simply forgettable and does not live up to expectations at all.

To cut a long story short, at the end of it all, you only wish it would have been better if this villain didn’t return at all. I mean, who would have imagined that a script like this in the present day would make its predecessor a much better movie. Ek Villain Returns is out in theaters now. Watch it only and only if you can stand the so-called mass cinema that expects you to keep your brains at home.

We will soon see Taapsee Pannu in Dobaaraa directed by Anurag Kashyap, written by Nihit Bhave and produced by Ekta Kapoor. The trailer for the upcoming thriller dropped on Wednesday and shows Taapsee tackling a 26-year-old unsolved mystery. The thriller also stars Rahul Bhat and Pavail Gulati and will be released on August 19. Read more: In the Ek Villain Returns trailer, Arjun Kapoor and John Abraham get in on the action

Dobaaraa revolves around a woman who tries to save the life of a boy indirectly involved in a murder that occurred two decades ago. The way the woman and the boy connect through an extravagant television is the heart of the film.

The Dobaaraa trailer shows Taapsee, her husband, and their daughter moving into a new home. Soon the family learns that in the house next to theirs, a young boy was killed 26 years ago, during a thunderstorm. Next, the Taapsee character is seen communicating with this same young boy. While the trailer reveals Dobaaraa recounting how during a thunderstorm Taapsee’s character changes the past and it changes his present as well, it also teases some exciting time travel theories.

Dobaaraa is the Hindi adaptation of the Spanish thriller Mirage, released in 2018. The project marks the reunion of Anurag Kashyap and Taapsee after Manmarziyaan. The film also stars Saswata Chatterjee, among others, in a pivotal role. Dobaaraa will premiere at the Indian Film Festival in Melbourne on August 12, ahead of its Indian release.

Taapsee was recently seen at Shabaash Mithu. The sports biopic was directed by Srijit Mukherji and produced by Viacom18 Studios. The film is based on the life of former India Women’s National Cricket Team Test and ODI Captain Mithali Raj and stars Taapsee in the lead role. The film did not do well at the box office. Taapsee’s upcoming projects include Raj Kumar Hirani’s upcoming film, Dunki, starring Shah Rukh, among others.
