So. Much. Power.

“Red carpets may have a reputation for being exclusive, glamorous affairs, but they aren’t always as exciting as they sound.

Ultimately it’s just a bunch of people in fancy clothes walking slowly along a road, right?

Well, not always. Not when Jason Momoa is involved.

Wednesday night marked the premiere of Aquaman in Los Angeles. And rather than just a simple, pose-for-photos-and-say-hi-to-fans type affair, this premiere had one key difference…

Yep: midway through the event, Jason Momoa suddenly stripped down to his vest to lead a haka, which included his two children and New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison, who plays his father in the movie and has Mori ancestors. In Mori culture, the haka is a traditional dance.

The performance lasted over two minutes, and involved the Hawaiian actor smashing his golden trident in half over his knee.

Yikes.

That’s certainly one way to make a red carpet more memorable.”

Warning: The following post contains spoilers for the finale of Game of Thrones. You must know this by now.

“No one was more emotional about the fate of Daenerys Targaryen than Kit Harington.

As seen in HBO’s behind-the-scenes Game of Thrones documentary, The Last Watch, which aired Sunday, the star who played Jon Snow/Aegon Targaryen can be seen during the cast’s very last table read reaching the moment when his character kills his beloved queen.

Whether or not you saw it coming in the show, Harington apparently didn’t, and it’s an undeniably stunning moment in the two-hour documentary about the making of Game of Thrones‘ eighth and final season.

Mother of Dragons and fellow star Emila Clarke can be seen sitting across the table nodding knowingly, as Sophie Turner a.k.a. Sansa Stark sits beside Harington and throws a wry smile his way.

It’s a highly relatable, emotional moment, that sees both Clarke and Harington shed a tear or two.

It’s one that, like the series finale, saw emotional responses from fans too, with many venting about it on Twitter. One called it “more emotional than the actual scene itself.”

Taylor Swift Prepped For ‘Cats’ Movie By Going To ‘Cat School’

Published

Taylor Swift is clearly taking her role in the upcoming “Cats” movie furry seriously.

“The pop star and noted feline enthusiast told Entertainment Weekly that preparation for her role as Bombalurina in the big-screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical has involved attending “cat school.”

“I just fully committed and threw myself into the process and had the most fun,” Swift told EW in a story published Friday. “We had this thing called ‘cat school’ that was a class where you could learn about how to create the motions of cats, how to think like they think, how to sense things the way that they do, carry yourself the way a cat would. I learned a lot.”

Swift also discussed “cat school” in a video interview with Time last month. Even so, her newer comments to EW are making headlines this week, probably because the idea of cat school is hilarious……………………………………………………………”

Bohemian Rhapsody was so 2018. 2019 will be the year of Rocketman.

“The Elton John biopic shared about seven minutes of footage at Paramount’s CinemaCon presentation Thursday, and while this reporter is on the fence about whether or not it looks good, I feel fairly confident saying it’s going to make a ton of money.

The extended first look follows Reginald Dwight from his very early years as a shy kid with a natural talent for classical piano, to his young adult years as an unstoppable creative force, to a troubled middle age in which he seems to have lost sight of who he really is. (Taron Egerton plays John in adulthood.)

We get to see him meet songwriter Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell) and manager John Reid (Richard Madden), change his name to Elton John (according to this movie, he happens upon the surname when he happens to spot a photo of the Beatles), play the Troubadour and Dodger Stadium, and so on……………………………………………………………”
