    Gwyneth Paltrow admires the 'sense of entitlement' her teenage daughter Apple has developed about gender equality. In an interview with Adobe MAX, the actress, 48, described her joy at seeing how empowered her daughter had grown. 'By the time my daughter is in the workforce, like those girls are not going to stand for it,' Gwyneth gushed. 'When I see my daughter with her friends, they are so empowered. They have, and I mean this word in the best possible way, they have a sense of entitlement that's beautiful. 'It's not spoiled, it's like, "No, we are here for what...

    'Humor is a powerful weapon, and now abortion activists are attempting to utilize it in the same way comedy was used to desensitize us to the sinfulness of a wide range of behaviors' (LifeSiteNews) – It will surprise nobody to learn that I’m not one of those folks who thinks that every subject is fair game for comedy. Not everything is funny, and more importantly, some things should not be mocked. That goes especially for mocking God (blasphemy), which is the norm in entertainment these days, but also includes subjects that are simply inappropriate topics for humor. Conservatives have gotten...

    Fans of the blockbuster movie series “The Avengers” can virtually hang out with six of the stars Tuesday if they contribute to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. But it’s an actor who’s not attending who’s getting most of the attention on Twitter — and much of it is hate. Chris Pratt, known for his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” as well as “Parks and Rec,” was blasted on the social media platform by people who said his conspicuous absence was evidence of his secret support of President Donald Trump. From there, the conversation devolved into criticism of Pratt’s Christian faith...

    A Hollywood sign-style with letters spelling out “TRUMP” appeared on the side of a California freeway for the second time on Tuesday. The sign appeared in Corona in Riverside County along the 91 Freeway on Tuesday, NBC Los Angeles reported. It was unclear if it was related to the sign previously erected off the 405 Freeway earlier this month. State workers removed the “TRUMP” sign that appeared in Sepulveda Pass hours after it was first reported. The authorities said the Hollywood-style sign celebrating the president presented a visual distraction as vehicles were slowing down to take photos, Los Angeles station...

The film will be produced by Paramount and written by Laeta Kalogridis in a retelling of the epic tale made famous by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1963 classic.

    Netflix Co-CEO Ted Sarandos has voiced shock that a censorship debate has sprung up around the controversial Cuties film after a Texas grand jury indicted the streamer over the feature. In comments at the virtual Mipcom market on Monday, Sarandos said Cuties was misunderstood in America after the indictment claimed it “appeals to the prurient interest in sex, and has no serious, literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.” Defending the Maïmouna Doucouré-directed feature, which focuses on an 11-year-old Senegalese-French girl, who is torn between her traditional Muslim family and her dance troupe friends, Sarandos said: “It’s a little surprising in...

    The studio's president of North American TV distribution has been let go after an incident involving a coworker. Lionsgate has fired one of its executives for allegedly having a gun on company premises. Sources say the studio's president of North American TV distribution Jared Goetz has been let go for violating company policy.

In the car, he allegedly opened up about having his house broken into and being attacked in his car at a stoplight...

    "If we shut this down, this will not be a reversible process," says the 'Wonder Woman 1984' director. Director Patty Jenkins has warned that the future of cinema-going is in peril amid the coronavirus pandemic. "If we shut this down, this will not be a reversible process," she told news agency Reuters in an interview from her home in Los Angeles. "We could lose movie theater-going forever." Jenkins, whose Wonder Woman 1984 has been delayed three times due to the coronavirus pandemic, is among top Hollywood names who have appealed to the government for financial help for cinemas.

    [snip] John Fithian, head of the National Association of Theatre Owners, believes that the main stumbling block preventing movie theaters from rebounding is Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision to keep cinemas closed indefinitely. That’s robbing studios of a major market to show their films, Fithian argues, which may jeopardize the release of upcoming blockbusters such as “Wonder Woman 1984” and Pixar’s “Soul.” In an interview with Variety, the theater business’s top lobbyist urged studios to keep releasing movies during the pandemic and warned that the industry faces financial ruin without government assistance. “No Time to Die” has delayed its release until...

    In yet another Twitter-storm, Donald Trump Jr. has decided to put his foot down when it comes to “normalizing pedophilia” — or at least, his perception of it. Last month, Trump Jr. tweeted in response to a bill California Governor Gavin Newsom passed last week accusing the entire Democratic party of protecting sex offenders. “They’re normalizing pedophelia [sic],” Trump Jr. wrote. “It’s not just Hollywood and Netflix. This is now becoming mainstream Democrat groupthink. It’s insanity and we must stop it.” He continued his Twitter tirade against the alleged Democratic “pedophiles.” “Serious question: Why is @TulsiGabbard essentially the only mainstream...

    SELF-CENSORING THEIR OWN SELF-INTERESTSThe pandemic has created a constant stream of challenges for the studios regarding the releases of motion pictures. Theater closings and audience fears are only part of the problems, and Disney was not excluded from the anxiety. One example was the live-action remake of its animated title ‘’Mulan.’’ After moving its release date repeatedly the studio had to relent and instead offer the film for sale on its streaming platform, Disney+.This was done to reach the audience stuck in our homes, but the quarantine also meant people had more time to research and read the news.
