It’s like Jason Vorhees is back except he has an entirely new look!
On Monday, the new teaser for the upcoming season of American HorrorStory was released and it looks campy as always. In fact, it looks campier than all the previous seasons. But that’s convenient since this season takes place at Camp Redwood.
The new season takes on a bunch of young looking adults who take a trip to a camp only to find out they’re being attacked by some strange lunatic. Sound familiar? Maybe a ski mask might appear?
Not this time. The trailer definitely has Friday the 13th qualities, but it will have its own original storyline.
The clip shows the campers partying in their cars as they head over for their summer vacay. As they pass the welcome sign, it looks like they missed the back side that says “Beware.” Things take an even darker turn when it turns out there’s a dark figure tagging along with the gang underneath the car and holding a knife! And with the way everything turns up, it definitely looks like it’s going to be one bloody summer.
Check it out below.
American Horror Story: 1984 premieres on Wednesday, September 18 on FX.
There’s been speculation about a Gossip Girl reunion for years. Will it ever happen?
On Monday, E! News posted an interview with Chace Crawford who was known as one of the show’s most prominent characters- in the sense that you either loved him or hated him. Let’s be real, Nate Archibald was boring.
Crawford is now playing a superhero in the new Amazon Prime series The Boys, which sounds like a giant leap for the actor ever since he left the Upper East Side.
“We’re kinda flipping it on its head, and these superheroes are essentially the bad guys and doing all these corrupt things,” Crawford said. “I think that it’s fun, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s not like these altruistic superheroes trying to save the world. You kinda watch the show and you’re like, what is going on?”
As far as making an appearance in a Gossip Girl reunion, it could happen. But let’s just hope it happens soon since all those kids are growing up and moving on.
“I always say I’d be open to it. I’m definitely a little bit more excited about this show right now but I would love to see everyone again, and if they could somehow figure out a away to make it work, I would love to do it,” Crawford said. “But we’re getting old now, we’re getting up there.”
It’s a question that comes to most people once in a while- what would we do if we could turn invisible? Would we use this power for good? Evil? Somewhere in between? What would it be like to do whatever we want without getting caught? It comes with a lot of imagination and curiosity. But what would it be like if we didn’t ask for this power and we had no choice? That’s what the new film Above the Shadows presents in a unique and tense melodrama.
The film revolves around Holly (Olivia
Thirlby), who starts as a young pre-teen raised in a family that
doesn’t really appreciate her. She’s the middle child and there are
times she doesn’t feel like part of the family. That is, except, with
her mother. The two have a lovely and meaningful relationship, but it
falls short when Holly’s mother dies from cancer. This leaves Holly
with a family that gradually forgets about her in the time of their
grief. In a short amount of time, they forget about Holly completely.
And it’s not just her family, but it’s the rest of the world too. No
one can see nor hear Holly anymore even though she’s still walking
and talking. This puts Holly in a cruel reality that while she’s
still around, no one knows she exists.
The film cuts to Holly as a young woman
and she somehow manages to become a useful member of society even if
others don’t see her. She becomes her own type of private
investigator who takes photos of others doing bad things and exposing
them for who they are. It makes Holly appear to be a sneaky spy, but
the job is obviously easy if no one can see her.
But something happens to Holly. While
doing her photo work, a man kicks her out of a bar. So that
means…he can see her! It turns out this man is Shayne (Alan
Ritchson), a former professional fighter whose life has turned to
tatters after committing his own sins. Now it’s up to Shayne and
Holly to help each other find their paths again leading to a
heartwarming yet strenuous connection.
As the film continues, Holly tries to
help Shayne piece his life back together, but it comes with obstacles
on both sides. Their journeys come with a need to find focus after
feeling like giving up. It’s painful and it’s confusing. And it gets
even more complicated when love gets in the way.
The film explained what was in store
for Shayne’s path that he could only walk through with the help from
someone else. And Holly comes to her own terms with what it really
means to be invisible. As much as she wants to guilt the rest of the
world for shutting her out, only she can decide if she can be brought
Thirlby’s charisma fits smoothly with
her role as Holly. She perfectly pulls off the lonely Jessica
Jones-ish kind of misfit who sits in the corner with mysterious
energy like a dark figure who disappears into the night. Ritchson,
with his chiseled look and muscled physique, resembles a cage fighter
well, but it’s his sensitivity and honesty that make him true to the
There are also appearances from two
bigger stars, including Jim Gaffigan, who plays Holly’s oblivious yet
grief-stricken father. It’s definitely not the Gaffigan fans will
know from his stand-up comedy, which can give the audience a new take
that they can either appreciate or feel awkward about. Then there’s
Megan Fox who plays Juliana, the ex-girlfriend of Shayne, who comes
back into his life when he’s about to make a fighting comeback.
Unfortunately, Fox’s time on screen is pretty short and doesn’t come
with a lot of redemption. While the actress has always been known for
her sultry looks and seductive vibe, who’s to say she doesn’t deserve
a longer and more detailed storyline?
The film has its slow moments, but overall, it delivers a powerful message about failure and redemption. When bad things happen, there is an urge to blame everyone else- and while others may hold responsibility, it is not up to them to keep it that way. It is only up to whoever is willing to make the change they so desperately want to see in the world.
This is Us is about to take its storylines to entirely new levels when it premieres this fall.
On Wednesday, E! News released an interview with Chrissy Metz who plays Kate on the NBC series. One of the last things we saw in Kate’s storyline was watching her gave birth to her and Toby’s son, Jack, named after the dad we all know and love. But the baby was born prematurely, which gave a lot of precautions for how Kate and Toby were going to take care of him.
Metz revealed that some drama might go down for the couple now that they have a baby to look after.
“We’re going to see Kate and Toby co-parenting and how/if that will change the dynamic in their relationship,” the actress said.
Little Jack’s health problems will likely continue for a while and things will not be easy for his parents. We can definitely expect a lot of emotional feels and Metz is looking forward to what’s to come.
“What I’m excited about is it’s unexpected, but also really important in the way that Dan and the writers have orchestrated Kate and Toby and Jack,” she said.
Metz also mentioned what a huge fan she is of the writing.
“I’m an audience member on the show that I’m on,” she said. “I know that sounds silly, but…it’s one of the best shows on television. The writing is ridiculous.”
This is Us Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, September 24 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
It was announced on Wednesday that the guilty pleasure series is getting a reboot. Surprisingly, this didn’t start out as a rumor or as something “in the works.” It just happened pretty miraculously.
The show has a 10-episode order so far and will be on HBO Max. Not a bad place for a salacious series.
The reboot will take on a group of new elite teenagers who do pretty much what they always do- look super hot but do terrible things to each other while living the disgustingly superficial life of New York City. Sounds exciting, but will it be worth it?
There will be a lot of comparing to the original so fans of the series are going to want it to truly live up to its potential. It won’t be easy to find the ideal Serena or Dan type of characters.
But it may not be a bad idea to find someone with a gorgeous yet evil look for Blair. Leighton Meester may have had queen bee energy, but someone else could reign with true terror this time around. If these kids are going to do bad things, then they might as well go all out.
It probably won’t be the exact characters, but the new ones will take the spots that the originals came from. So it wouldn’t be a bad idea to switch some things up. After all, the mysterious blogger was all about drama.
It shouldn’t be drama this time. It needs nastiness, vengeance and horrible, horrible things. Then perhaps this reboot will do its time.
Ireland Baldwin is pure hotness in her latest Instagram pic.
On Tuesday, the model took to her social media page to post a sultry new image in her exotic corset. She looks at the camera with her piercing eyes and smokey eyeshadow as her chest is exposed for all those leering eyes.
With those full lips, wave locks and detailed tattoos, it really is no wonder that this girl is a hit online.
It also helps that Baldwin is feeling like one of the most unique and iconic characters in film.
“Corsets make me feel like Elizabeth Swan (Keira Knightley in Pirates [of the Caribbean]),” the caption says. “But more if like…she got a job at Hooters or something.”
Baldwin is always about looking good for the camera and body positivity. Earlier this month, she posted a topless picture with encouraging comments about loving every inch of yourself.
“yoooo!!! love your body. respect your body. stop spending your money on juul pods,” Baldwin wrote in the caption. “spend it on vitamins and veggies. get your titties checked. get active. get vitamin d. breathe fresh air. be happy. laugh it all off. spend your remaining time on this earth with people who love you and make you feel good and if you don’t have many of those people, get out and go look for them. some of y’all are taking this whole life thing so damn seriously… and it’s so not worth it.
Harry Styles in talks to play Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid live-action…really?
The Little Mermaid is one of the most iconic and beautiful stories of our time. Sure, it’s problematic, but it’s still a magical Disney film with breathtaking music, gorgeous scenery and some of the most beautiful characters in cinema.
When it was announced that Halle Bailey was to star as Ariel, the Internet was all for it (actually, a lot of them weren’t, but that’s an entirely different story to tell). Bailey can sing, has Disney-esque features and shows lovely mermaid charisma.
Styles, on the other hand, has zero prince charisma. His long hair, weird face and discomforting smile possess the qualities of that emo misfit from high school who thought he was all “above it” even though his parents paid for those ripped jeans.
Here’s another thing- Styles can sing for a boy band and the public loves him. But to play the the romantic hero who sweeps the princess off her feet (literally with Ariel) is just not where his energy lies. Even though the One Direction members went their separate ways, Styles stayed pretty relevant because everyone is so in love with him…despite the fact that every other member of that band is far better looking and charming than him. Seriously, they couldn’t get Zayn for the role?
For 2019 standards, Prince Eric is a dud. But for Disney standards, he’s lovable, handsome and ravishing. A classy young man with a gorgeous face, pearly white teeth, suave hair and sings like an angel is what this character is known for. Not a grungy beatnik with a horrible hair-cut who can only look like a fake Prince Charming to girls under 13.
