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……………………………………………………………”
‘Game of Thrones’ documentary has everyone freaking out over one scene
Whether or not you saw it coming, Kit Harington apparently didn’t.
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.”
Taron Egerton’s ‘Rocketman’ looks like a better ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
Taron Egerton as Elton John in ‘Rocketman’.
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……………………………………………………………”
Can ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ recover from its disastrous drama?
“With the original Avengers team expected to bow out after Avengers: Endgame, Guardians of the Galaxy is one of Marvel‘s key franchises for Phase 4. Yes,Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is still happening, with director/co-writer James Gunn back onboard.
The bad news is, this film may not come out until 2022. Here’s everything you need to know about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director
Vol. 3‘s main claim to fame is the drama surrounding Gunn’s dismissal and subsequent rehiring. He was fired in July 2018 after some old (but ) jokes resurfaced on Twitter. This decision was highly controversial because the jokes only resurfaced thanks to an astroturfing campaign from alt-right trolls, who wanted Gunn fired due to his anti-Trump views. TheGuardianscast even published an open letter asking him to be rehired, but for almost a year, it looked likeVol. 3 would either go ahead with a new director or wouldn’t go ahead at all. Then in March 2019, Disney announced that Gunn was back on to direct. In fact, the studio had never even begun a real search for a new director, and Disney reputedly rehired Gunn behind the scenes long before the announcement was made.

That’s a lot of drama for a film that doesn’t even exist yet. However, since Gunn had already drafted a script before he was fired, it will probably be smoother sailing from now on.
