Whether it’s a nude, a screen grab of your ex’s wedding, or the dread under-chin, anyone with Instagram on their phone is truly one thumb slip away from humiliation at any moment. A fact Chris Evans unfortunately discovered this weekend, after the actor inadvertently revealing more to the entire world than he would have liked. According to the New York Post, Evans posted a video to Instagram this weekend featuring a mild-mannered game of Head’s Up. However, in doing so, he inadvertently revealed his camera roll, which contained both a photo of a penis and a meme featuring Evans’ face and the command: “Guard. That.

As I noted yesterday, films that score a DGA nomination are virtually locked in for a Best Picture nomination in the expanded-category era, so that bodes well for The Big Short, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, The Revenant, and Spotlight. Straight Outta Compton didn’t get a DGA nod, but it did get top nominations from the WGA, PGA, and SAG, and that trifecta almost always presages a Best Picture nomination, too.

It’s someLast Dance–level influence and impact. So when Variety reported that Hype House member and TikTok star Addison Rae (full name Addison Rae Easterling) had been cast in a remake of She’s All That, gender-swapped to be called He’s All That, and that it would be directed by Waters, we knew that the original 1999 source material was in good hands. The original Freddie Prinze Jr./Rachel Leigh Cook teen rom-com is a classic of the “what if a nerdy girl took off her glasses and was hot?” genre, but Addison Rae won’t be playing the nerd who undergoes a transformation. Because it’s gender-swapped, Addison … [Read more...] about Is Getting a Remake. And a Gender Swap. And a TikTok Star.
