When life and the endless misery of the 24-hour news cycle get you down, sometimes you just need to watch a dreamy actor dancing to ’80s electropop. Enter: Armie Hammer, who is definitely going to become the internet’s new favorite boyfriend when Call Me By Your Name is released on November 24.

Director Luca Guadagnino has created a balm for our weary souls in the coming-of-age romance that got everyone hot and bothered at Sundance, thanks in large part to the raw, poignant performances of Hammer and Timothée Chalamet.

Chalamet (best known for previous roles in Homeland and Interstellar) plays Elio, an idealistic 17-year-old who falls for Hammer’s Oliver, a grad student who’s staying with Elio’s family for one idyllic summer in 1983 Italy. If you don’t fall in love with them for their slick dance moves, just wait ’til you see what they do with a peach.

Ariana Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ video is a perfect parody of all your favorite teen movies

Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” already cemented itself as a 2018 banger, and the official video is a party of its own. Full of classic teen movie tropes and references to Mean Girls, Bring It On, Legally Blonde, and more.

The movie references are fun on their own, all teased by Grande on social media leading up to the video’s release, but the cameos make “thank u, next.”

From Mean Girls‘ original Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) to Kris Jenner as a cool mom, everyone in the video is having a blast – perhaps none more so than Jennifer Coolidge recreating an entire scene of Legally Blonde with Grande as Elle Woods.

The song talks about Grande’s exes, but the second part is all about self-discovery (“But this one gon’ last / ‘Cause her name is Ari). The movie references are strategic – though they all contain central love stories, they remain iconic because they are stories of female empowerment and a protagonist finding her voice amid all the noise.

And that shit’s amazing.”

Michael B. Jordan demonstrates just how fast his hands are

“Having starred in two Creed movies and probably endured some pretty rigorous physical training, Michael B. Jordan is pretty quick on his feet — and fast with his hands.

On The Late Late Show, Jordan demonstrated to host James Corden just how quick he can actually move them.

In a game of good old try-to-slap-my-hand-before-I-move-it-away, Jordan beat a shrieking James Corden pretty convincingly.

Oh, Michael. Your hands are faster than the speed of our love for you.”

Idris Elba is People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ for 2018

(CNN)He’s still not James Bond, but for now this honor will do.

He is the 33rd man to hold the title and appears this week on the magazine’s cover.
Elba told the publication, “I was like, ‘Come on, no way. Really?’ ” when he first learned he had been selected.
“Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today,’ ” the “Thor” star joked. “But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise — an ego boost for sure.”
“Elba first became famous in the States for his portrayal of drug kingpin Russell “Stringer” Bell on HBO’s hit series “The Wire” (HBO is owned by CNN’s parent company) and since then has branched out to the big screen.
His early days were far from sexy, Elba said, growing up “tall and skinny” at an all-boys school in London, where he played football, basketball, cricket, hockey and rugby.
Now considered one of Hollywood’s sex symbols, Elba said he definitely had an awkward stage as a youth.
“And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, OK?,” he said. “I got picked on a little bit. But as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers.”
Bonkers indeed.”
