Johnny Depp Emerges in New Dior Ad as Fans Praise the Company for Standing by Him
Johnny Depp has reemerged in a new video clip promoting his Dior fragrance, and his name has started to trend as fans praise the company for standing by him. Dubbed "Conversations with Craftsmen: Game of Notes," the clip is of a talk show-style chat between Depp and Dior perfumer-creator François Demachy, the creators of the Sauvage fragrance. You can watch the latest Johnny Depp video below.

With Laurianne Melierre hosting, Depp and Demachy talk about their creative inspirations. Depp even strums on his guitar at one point in the video and tests a new scent at another. It is also the first of a series of meetings between the two, as the end of the footage teases "more to come" in September 2021. For sticking with Depp at a time when companies like Disney and Warner Bros. are keeping their distance, many fans are praising Dior with the hashtag #ThankYouDior trending alongside Depp's name.

LGBTQ Film Characters Had Greater Visibility, Diversity and Screen Time in 2020, GLAAD Study Finds

LGBTQ Film Characters Had Greater Visibility, Diversity and Screen Time in 2020, GLAAD Study Finds
LGBTQ characters appeared in a higher percentage of films in 2020 than ever before, according to a new study from GLAAD. The study also found more of those characters were people of color, and more of them than ever had a substantial amount of screen time.

GLAAD’s annual Studio Responsibility Index found that of 44 films from eight major studios released throughout 2020, 10 of them, or 22.7%, had characters who identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual or queer. That percentage is up from 2019, in which only 18.6% had LGBTQ characters.

But for the fourth year in a row, GLAAD found that transgender characters and non-binary characters were completely absent from major studio theatrical releases, with the organization saying that the film industry greatly lags behind TV when it comes to representation in this regard.

2020’s theatrical releases were completely thrown out of whack due to the pandemic, with movie theaters closed across the country for

‘Black Widow’ Review: Johansson and Pugh Share Banter and Badass Fights in Solid Bourne-Meets-Marvel Romp

‘Black Widow’ Review: Johansson and Pugh Share Banter and Badass Fights in Solid Bourne-Meets-Marvel Romp
Bad accents abound and no amount of fun can salvage the third-act cliché of a giant burning object falling from the sky, but overall, “Black Widow” amounts to a satisfying addition to “The Bourne Identity” franchise. Of course, it’s actually a solid beginning to the latest cycle of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the appeal of the MCU has always stemmed from the way it plays off existing formulas with dollops of spruced-up action strewn throughout, and the 24th entry hits all of those beats with style to spare.

Director Cate Shortland’s standalone adventure finds Natasha, aka Scarlett Johansson’s eponymous Kgb killer-turned-Avenger hero, kicking ass and trading banter with her combustible sort-of sister Yelena (Florence Pugh) alongside gonzo adopted dad Red Guardian (David Harbour) and his wife Melina (Rachel Weisz). Their playful dynamic, based on a premise credited to “Wandavision” creator Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson and written by Eric Pearson,

HBO Max Subscribers Confused & Amused By Mysterious ‘Integration Test Email # 1’

HBO Max Subscribers Confused & Amused By Mysterious ‘Integration Test Email # 1’
Some HBO Max subscribers received a strange email Thursday night with the subject line “Integration Test Email # 1.” The body of the email said only, “This template is used by integration tests only.” There were no attachments or images included.

Given the proliferation of data breaches of late, it could have been a phishing scam.

Most recipients, however, seem to have quickly realized that the missive was a mistake. And then the jokes began.

Some on Twitter posited that Integration Test Email #1 was a new HBO Max show.

Margot Robbie Weighs in on Birds of Prey 2

Margot Robbie Weighs in on Birds of Prey 2
Birds of Prey was one of the best films of 2020—a bright, bold super-powered film that blew the Bechdel Test right out of the water in fun, unexpected, and creative ways (I am still not over the mid-fight hair elastic request). Unfortunately, the R-rated, Harley Quinn-driven girl gang movie did not blow the box office away. While our very own David Crow wrote an excellent piece about how Birds of Prey was not the financial flop that parts of the media made it out to be, it wasn’t the next Deadpool either, leaving the future of this corner of the Dceu in question.

While Harley Quinn will be back on the big screen in the upcoming The Suicide Squad, she won’t be surrounded by her girl gang, but rather a new motley crew. As part of our Den of Geek magazine The Suicide Squad cover story, we asked

‘Test Pattern’ Review: A Perceptive, Painful Examination of Sexual Assault and Relationship Dynamics

‘Test Pattern’ Review: A Perceptive, Painful Examination of Sexual Assault and Relationship Dynamics
First-time feature filmmaker Shatara Michelle Ford squeezes a lot out of 82 minutes. In “Test Pattern,” a perceptive and often quite painful examination of sexual assault, relationship dynamics, racial divides, and the corrosive power of violence, the writer and director mines a dizzying amount of topical issues, tying them all up as a compelling two-hander to boot. Despite the density of their subject, Ford avoids heavy-handed platitudes and dramatic tropes, instead relying on The result is a showcase for the film’s central trio, one that resonates long after the film’s slim running time concludes.

Weaving back and forth in time, “Test Pattern” opens on the incident that will drive the bulk of the drama’s action: a woozy Renesha (Hall), still somehow managing to sit upright on a bed, a glass of water threatening to tip out of her hand. She’s not alone, and when Mike (Drew Fuller) comes into frame,

BFI-Funded Inclusive Cinema Project Tackles Racism With Toolkit Launch – Global Bulletin
In today’s Global Bulletin, Inclusive Cinema addresses racism; Swipe pops champagne documentary; BFI seeks film fund director; Sky goes green; Sovereign acquires “Verdict”; and Blackstone buys “Stars Wars” building.

The U.K.’s Inclusive Cinema project has launched a guide for improving the cinema experiences of ethnically diverse audiences and staff — a directive that challenges institutions to make good on their Black Lives Matter and anti-racism statements from 2020.

The guide, titled “Dismantling Structural Inequality in Your Cinema,” was commissioned from artist and freelancer Sadia Pineda Hameed, and is cited by its writer as “the last toolkit that cinemas should need.” The toolkit examines the role of cinemas in the context of systemic injustice and focuses on preventing harm towards people of color. From immediately actionable tools, to encouraging inner, reflective and dialogue-based work, towards undoing systemic injustice, the guide is intended to create lasting change for future generations, and

Netflix Co-CEOs Defend ‘Keeper Test’ After Programming Exec Exits

Netflix Co-CEOs Defend ‘Keeper Test’ After Programming Exec Exits
Netflix bid farewell to several senior programming executives in recent weeks — and the company’s two co-CEOs, Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos, maintained that the turnover is business as usual for the streamer.

In September, Sarandos named Bela Bajaria VP of global TV, while VP of original content Cindy Holland was given the “Keeper Test” after 18 years at the company. Other exits: Jane Wiseman departed after a little over six years as VP of originals and head of comedy, while Channing Dungey, VP of original content and head of drama, left two weeks ago and was just named chairman of Warner Bros. Television Group.

Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer who was elevated to co-ceo in July, was asked about the recent executive churn by Barclays Capital analyst Kannan Venkateshwar on the company’s third-quarter 2020 earnings interview.

Ryan Reynolds Confirms ‘Red Notice’ Production Restart, Shares Covid-19 Nose Swab Test Experience
Ryan Reynolds is finally back to work, after a Covid-19 nose swab test, that is.

The Deadpool actor tweeted that he has returned to production for his upcoming film Red Notice. Reynolds shared photos of him undergoing the dreaded coronavirus nose swab test on Saturday.

“The Covid Test is quick and easy. The doctor places the swab up your nose, just deep enough to tickle your childhood memories and then it’s over,” he joked. “No matter what you say to him, he won’t buy you dinner first.”

Reynold’s tweets and photos come nearly six months after Netflix announced that it would halt production for Red Notice, a global heist film also starring Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson. Netflix brought the film’s production to a sudden stop due to coronavirus concerns.

On Wednesday Reynold’s co-star Gadot also shared a similar social media post, confirming that Red Notice

‘Rick and Morty’ Review: One-Note ‘Alien’ Riff ‘Promortyus’ Has Facehuggers and Not Much Else

‘Rick and Morty’ Review: One-Note ‘Alien’ Riff ‘Promortyus’ Has Facehuggers and Not Much Else
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Rick and Morty” Season 4, Episode 7, “Promortyus.”]

It’s close to low-hanging fruit to do an ongoing comparison of “Rick and Morty” with “Solar Opposites.” Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan, co-creators of the latter, brought a few “Rick and Morty” elements to their new Hulu series (some of which are detailed here), but there’s no explicit connection between the two (yet). Still, watching this week’s “Rick and Morty” does bring to mind one scene from “Solar Opposites” that has the usual subversive verve that its spiritual predecessor usually thrives on.

Context redacted for those who haven’t ventured too far into the fates of Korvo and the other Shlorpions who crashland on Earth, but a string of circumstances bring them to the point where they have to slice through a decent portion of the local high school populace in order to spare them from a horrific fate.
