There’s a nagging question at the heart of Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runner 2049, and it’s to do with need. Why does Ryan Gosling’s Detective K need a robot wife (Ana de Armas), programmed to speak in a diaphanous lisp? Why does he need an apartment? What purpose is there for a robot to blend in? Everyone in his world can almost smell his oiled gears, his falseness. So why does he need the trappings of reality? Like Twin Peaks: The Return, Blade Runner 2049 has to interrogate its own incongruous existence so many years after the artifact that gave it life first entered the cultural bloodstream. Why does this film exist, beyond the potential box office? Why have writer Hampton Fancher and producer Ridley Scott gone back here? Who needs this? The film seems aware of itself as an automaton theatrical event. It watches itself; taking place behind glass, »

2005/1987 The Zeéeee marries Kenny Chesney. Just four months later she seeks an anullment for "fraud" but then asks people not to theorize about what "fraud" means. Understandably no one obeys her and rumors explode. On this same day 18 years earlier, another much-gossiped about marriage that ends in weird bitchy rumors: Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers!
In honor of these odd affairs: have a self-deprecating laugh at a big relationship failure rather than being sad about it. We all stumble in love!

A source close to Kirby tells Et that recent reports claiming the two are dating are simply "not true."
"Production hasn't even started yet," the source says, shooting down rumors that Cruise has tapped the 28-year-old actress as wife No. 4.
Kirby has landed a role in Cruise's upcoming Mission: Impossible 6, which begins filming next month in Paris -- though according to In Touch, Cruise has been a big fan of the British actress since seeing her in Netflix's The Crown.
While Et's source slammed reports that the two are dating, Cruise definitely has a history of romancing his co-stars.
