Last Christmas Trailer

When the first trailer for Last Christmas arrived, there was an entire bumper dedicated to the fact that the movie featured the music of the late George Michael. Of course, that was probably already assumed since the movie’s title comes straight from a Christmas song that he wrote, produced and performed when he was part of the English pop duo Wham!. But a new Last Christmas trailer really leans into that fact by directly citing the song as inspiration for the movie written by Emma Thompson, who also stars in the movie with Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding.

dark army

Is the Dark Universe about to rise from the grave, resurrected by mad scientist Paul Feig? Kind of! Universal has been trying to reboot their classic monsters for a while, and came up with a big, dumb plan for a cinematic universe that launched with The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. But no one liked it! And a stake was driven through the heart of the Dark Universe. Now, Universal is trying-out individual films, like Leigh Whannell’s Invisible Man. But that’s apparently not the only Universal Monsters-themed film on the horizon. Paul Feig is set to direct Dark Army, which will reportedly feature classic Universal monsters.

time's up challenge

2018 saw a dramatic dip in female directors working in Hollywood — an already low-statistic that can’t afford to take any more hits. This in spite of the work of the Time’s Up and Me Too movements that have taken Hollywood by storm, making accountable the powerful men and abusers who had eluded justice before.

But it’s not enough just to call out abusers, Hollywood needs to prop up underrepresented women as well. That’s what the new Time’s Up Challenge is about: encouraging Hollywood’s movers and shakers to work with a female director in the next 18 months. Proposed by Tessa Thompson, the challenge is called the #4PercentChallenge, based on the measly fraction of women who have directed the top 100 studio films in the last decade, and has already been accepted by dozens of directors, producers, writers, and actors.
