On the eve of the election, Lady Gaga took the stage in North Carolina, addressing Clinton backers at a midnight rally.
“If we are true, true Americans, we must go from viewing his followers as our adversaries to viewing them as our allies. What does she say? What do we say? We are stronger together. And what I see in this remarkable woman is that she is ready to restore peace in this country.
Thunder Road optioned the graphic novel. J. P. Davis (“The Neighbor”) is writing. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (“The Huntsman: Winter’s War”) will direct.
“Naja” centers on a beautiful assassin, who is all the more deadly because she is unable to register pain. Her mercenary ways get upended after she finds herself targeted by contract killers. The story is said to be in the vein of action hits such as “Lucy,” “Le Femme Nikita,” and “John Wick.”
“Naja” was written by Jean-David Morvan and illustrated by Bengal. It was published in France by Dargaud, whose roster of properties includes “Valerian,” the graphic novel currently getting the big-screen treatment from Luc Besson. Magnetic Press published “Naja” in the U.S.

So says actress (and former dancer and, yes, that little bit of trivia will become very important very soon) Margaret Qualley of her turn in the Spike Jonze-directed short film-and-also-commercial for the company’s new fragrance Kenzo World. The latest snippet of cinematic expression from the fashion house is a short entitled “My Mutant Brain” that has been helmed by Jonze — and his stamps are all over the very funny, very energetic short — with Qualley starring as a charmingly bored young socialite who quite literally breaks free of the trappings of what looks to be a dreadfully boring event, all to dance her troubles away.

There is no dialogue in the two-minute clip that has surfaced online, just battle scenes that play to the sound of Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.” (Something tells us Spielberg was not able to license the rights to the music.) Spielberg’s sister Anne Spielberg is the only person credited in the cast on IMDb, which states that the entire short is 40 minutes long.
Though the production value is exactly what one would expect from a teenage filmmaker, Spielberg’s eye for dramatic action scenes and swiftly-paced editing are apparent even at this young age. “Escape

Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures is producing the prestige package with Theron’s Denver & Delilah Productions and What Maisie Knew executive-producer Marissa McMahon.

A History of Violence writer Josh Olson and The Game scribe John Brancato (who also penned Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation) wrote the script. As the outlet points out, gender-bent twists on traditional plots are en vogue right now with Ghostbusters and the upcoming Ocean's Eight, so this fits in alongside those pretty well. I just hope Ronda Rousey doesn't end up starring in it. I'd love to see someone with some legitimate acting ability take on a role like this (sorry, Ronda).

Little is known about the specific plot of Trigger Warning but, unsurprisingly, it is described in broad terms through comparison to well-known male-led movies. This is almost unavoidable, since the genre has historically been dominated by male-centric tales and so, Trigger Warning is characterised as a female Rambo: First Blood, with a dash of John Wick thrown in.
The significance of this project cannot be overstated. There has, for some time, been an increasingly vocal call for better female representation in leading roles in movies,
