When Netflix posted a video clip of a cartoon child explaining pansexuality, probably the last thing they expected was to be attacked by the super woke Twitter scolds. And yet that’s exactly what happened, to the point of the Big Mouth creators being forced to apologize to "trans, pan, and bi communities" for the scene being problematic and exclusionary.
Hollywood movie database IMDb.com has become the latest casualty in the trans war on reality, having been bullied by the LGBTQ community into refraining from posting trans people’s birth names on their site without “consent.” Apparently publishing trans movie industry workers’ original names is just another arrow in the quiver of patriarchal oppression.
The great cinematic mind that brought us the first tween dream Twilight movie has made the heroic leap to directing feminist fan fiction. According to a July 24 Deadline report, director Catherine Hardwicke has signed on to a lesbian viking film called Heathen -- an adaptation of a Vault Comics series of the same name. The story is a radical twist on Marvel’s Thor, rivalling Disney's upcoming female Thor film.
While the folks over at CNN, MSNBC and their friends in Hollywood would have audiences believe that there is nothing too concerning or crisis-like happening at the southern border, at least the producers over at Paramount Network find there to be enough drama down there to warrant a crime thriller. Emmy-winner Michael Chiklis is set to star in a new show about the perils of being a border guard facing retirement while dealing with human trafficking and “drugs pouring in” from Mexico.
In an effort to stick it religious conservatives, Magnolia Pictures is premiering their new documentary on the Satanic Temple, Hail Satan? in Los Angeles on Good Friday. Hail Satan? chronicles the Satanic Temple members’ fight for “religious freedom” against organized religion.
Good for literally every sound-minded person on the planet: Alec Baldwin says he’s going to start winding down his terrible impression of Donald Trump. Sitting down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Baldwin intimated that he might be starting to grow tired of the role, and that it’s the SNL producers who “keep pulling me back in.” Sad!
Despite all the obstacles in its path, pro-life film Unplanned had quite a successful opening weekend. Surprising many, the film placed fifth in the weekend box office even with its limited release, boasted the “highest per screen average” of any indie film debut in US history, and almost tripled industry predictions for how much revenue it would generate.
The 30th GLAAD Media Awards premiered Thursday night and per usual it was a celebration of all things gay in Hollywood and a skewering of the usual suspects, like Vice President Mike Pence. Still, there was one bit you might not expect to see at an openly gay awards show, with actor Sean Hayes slamming gay, black hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett.
Unplanned actress Ashley Bratcher had some choice words for Hollywood actress and left-wing gadfly/activist Alyssa Milano following the Charmed star’s criticism of Georgia’s pro-life “heartbeat bill.” In an open letter, Bratcher blasted Milano’s recent Deadline op-ed criticizing a new Georgia bill that would require physicians to abandon the abortion option upon detecting the heartbeat of an unborn baby.
Radical pro-abortion celebrities are threatening Georgia legislators over a new pro-life bill that would ban abortion at six weeks, or when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is first detectable. Referred to as heartbeat bills, these laws emphasize the truth about abortion: it ALWAYS stops a heartbeat.
Alec Baldwin sure knows a thing or two about the feeling of being threatened. He’s seen it multiple times, both in the eyes of the man he punched in a parking squabble, and in the fearful faces of the paparazzi he’s been recorded bellowing at. But now Baldwin expects the world to believe he’s the snowflake after Donald Trump criticized his Trump impression on SNL, wondering whether the “retribution” Trump seeks for character assassination means harming Baldwin or “his family.”
A new character assassination, er, I mean biopic about Vice President Dick Cheney is set to hit theaters this Christmas. Starring Christian Bale in the titular role, Vice appears to be less of a thoughtful political drama detailing Cheney’s role during the Bush years, and more of a gritty, gangster movie, depicting the vice president’s quest for absolute power.
