American Horror Story Star Reportedly Eyed To Play McU’s Spider-Woman

The McU isn’t planning on slowing down with the character introductions any time soon, as the already crowded cinematic universe is now exploring bringing Spider-Woman into the mix. And according to our sources, the studio already have an actress in mind to take over the role.

We’re being told that American Horror Story star Emma Roberts is being eyed to play the superhero on the big screen. There’s even a chance she might debut in Spider-Man 3, though nothing is certain as of yet and from what we understand, she’s just one name on Marvel’s wishlist at the moment. And given that this intel comes to us from the same sources who said the studio is eyeing Daniel Radcliffe for Moon Knight and Tom Holland is in talks for a Venom 2 cameo, both of which we now know to be true, we’ve no reason to doubt it.

Influencers: Ellen Kuras Shows that Shooting from a Blueprint Can Capture Any Emotion

Influencers: Ellen Kuras Shows that Shooting from a Blueprint Can Capture Any Emotion
In a world where only 18 (a number that’s doubled in the last seven years) of the 390 members of the American Society of Cinematographers are women, the trailblazing career of Ellen Kuras has long been a guiding light, but not simply because of the odds she overcame, but the work itself.

“Her work told me it was possible not just to be a female Dp, because all that is is a gender, but she’s good at what she does,” said “Black Panther” cinematographer and devoted Kuras fan Rachel Morrison. “Her work really spoke to me and spoke to the masses, and I liked that the work wasn’t gendered.”

Kuras has given us cinematography as bold as the films she’s drawn to, and the directors who are drawn to her. When we look back at what was best about independent films from the 1990s it’s often best

Driven review – stranger-than-fiction tale of drugs and DeLoreans

Jason Sudeikis and Lee Pace star in a flashy true-crime thriller about the an FBI informant and his car-making crony

Screenwriter and novelist Colin Bateman has here scripted a flashy but watchable true-crime thriller in the style of American Made (2017) or Blow (2001).

It’s based on the stranger-than-fiction case of Jim Hoffman, a drug-runner and FBI informant who in the late 70s happened to be a California neighbour of automobile entrepreneur John DeLorean, who at that time was having real trouble selling the sports car he had designed, with its falcon-wing doors and its unreliable engine, coming sluggishly off the production line in a Northern Ireland factory with financial help from the British government. (The car’s sole success was its iconic appearance in Back to the Future.) Desperate for cash, DeLorean accepted a dodgy deal from Hoffman, hoping to ease his cash-flow worries with cocaine profits from Hoffman’s sleazy drug-dealer contacts.

Cma Awards predictions: Chris Stapleton is undefeated for Male Vocalist of the Year, but beware of Luke Combs

Cma Awards predictions: Chris Stapleton is undefeated for Male Vocalist of the Year, but beware of Luke Combs
Chris Stapleton has been indomitable as the Country Music Association’s Male Vocalist of the Year since he broke out with his breakthrough solo album “Traveller.” He has been nominated every year since 2015 and has won every single time. He’s the odds-on favorite to win for the fifth time in a row at the 2019 CMAs, but he should watch out for Luke Combs, who is poised for an upset.

As of this writing Stapleton gets leading odds of 11/2 based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users who have given us their forecasts here in our predictions center (you can make your own picks and update them as often as you like before the winners are announced). It certainly doesn’t hurt his chances that he’s also nominated for Entertainer of the Year. The only other Male Vocalist nominee for whom that’s the case is Keith Urban,

Ed Sheeran Confirms He's Married to Cherry Seaborn in New Song, "Remember the Name"

Ed Sheeran is a married man! In his new song "Remember the Name," featuring Eminem and 50 Cent, the 28-year-old singer finally confirms that he and longtime love Cherry Seaborn, 27, tied the knot. Within the first 30 seconds, Sheeran makes a cheeky reference to his spouse, crooning, "My wife wears red, but looks better without the lipstick." The longtime couple - who were recently spotted kissing in Ibiza - began dating in September 2015 and got engaged in January 2018.

In a new interview with Charlamagne tha God, Sheeran opened up about how he hoped to keep their wedding a secret before "Remember the Name" was released as a part of his album No.6 Collaborations Project. But news of their nuptials eventually got out, though he never officially confirmed it until recently. "I knew that we'd be married by the point that the song came out," Sheeran said.

Prepare to Bang Your Head Along to Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, and Chris Stapleton's "Blow" Video

Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, and Chris Stapleton's new song "Blow" is a head-banging rock anthem that seems to have been specifically engineered for people to blast out of speakers all Summer long. As expected, the music video that accompanies the recently released track off of Sheeran's No.6 Collaborations Project is just as high energy.

Just like in the video for "Beautiful People," Sheeran and his A-list collaborators don't actually appear. Instead three hard-rocking female musicians take center stage at the Viper Room in La as they lip-sync to the track. The music video, which was actually directed by Mars, will give you '70s rock vibes in no time.

There are only a few days to go until Sheeran's new album drops on July 12. The LP includes a stacked list of featured artists, some of which we've already heard in the singer-songwriter's other new singles, like "I Don't Care

Ed Sheeran (‘Blow’): Dude looks like a lady, and so do Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton in team-up music video [Watch]
The phrases “Ed Sheeran” and “hard rock anthem” wouldn’t seem to go together, but the sensitive balladeer has channeled his inner rock god on his new single “Blow.” The song brings him together with Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars, who themselves are a couple of strange musical bedfellows for a collaboration like this. But the three are actually nowhere to be found in the music video, which was released on July 8. Watch it above.

The hard-charging song includes sexy come-ons like “You make me wanna make a baby” and “Tell me, what’s your fantasy?” but the men themselves yield the floor to a trio of women who stand in for them on the stage of the Viper Room: Cherish Waters as Sheeran, Jordan Kelly DeBarge as Stapleton and Cheyenne Haynes as Mars. The video was also directed by Mars, who previously channeled a different era with his 1990s-inflected “Finesse” video,

The 15 Best Films of 2019 (So Far)
By now, audiences have caught on to the way American distributors tend to stockpile their quality movies for end-of-year award-season release, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t treasures to be found in the first two quarters. In fact, sometimes it’s the movies that aren’t making a self-important Oscar push that wind up hitting closest to our hearts — and providing respite from such recent turkeys as “The Beach Bum” and “Wonder Park.” With quality to be found everywhere from blockbuster superhero sagas to niche-release art-house fare, it turns out 2019 is off to a good start. Variety chief critics Owen Gleiberman and Peter Debruge pick their favorite releases of the year so far.

Avengers: Endgame Marvel Studios

In his Variety review, Peter Debruge called it “the ultimate fan-service follow-up,” and that nails the riveting and cathartic satisfactions — and, just maybe, the built-in obsolescence — of this toweringly crafted and
