The biggest delays include Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which was originally dated for August 7, being pushed back to March 5, 2021; Morbius, which was originally dated for July 31, being pushed back March 19, 2021; and Uncharted, which was most recently dated for March 5, 2021, being pushed back to October 8, 2021. Additionally, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, which had already been delayed due to coronavirus concerns, is now primed for January 15, 2021, while Greyhound and an untitled Sony Marvel movie, which were marked for June 12, 2020 and October 8, 2021, are now both undated.
With the Skywalker Saga now finished and opinions being handed out left and right in regards to the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy, I think it’s time for a take that, frankly, is long overdue. During a recent re-watch of the Original Trilogy I had a blast and still love those movies as much as I ever have. That said, looking back now on all that’s come after and what came before, I don’t believe Luke Skywalker ever did anything greater than destroying the first Death Star.
Why Fans Of James Bond Would Like It: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, much like James Bond, is a quintessentially British spy story. However, instead of flashy suits, fast cars, and trips to exotic locales, this film based on the novel by John le Carré shows the spy game in a more dour, realistic light. With a cast stacked with talents like Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Toby Jones, among others, this potboiler is a perfect contrast to spy aficionados who want a change of pace from the James Bond movies.
Where To Stream: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is available on Netflix.
Going with the Crimean War, which lasted from 1853 to 1856, would have been interesting not just for the photography angle that Zack Snyder mentioned in his commentary, but also the fact that it’s a conflict that isn’t explored much in popular culture. Diana coming to the United States as the Civil War waged between 1861 to 1865 could have also been compelling, but ultimately, Zack Snyder and his team settled on World War I, once known as the “war to end all wars,” and took the photograph that was shown in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as seen below.
It’s nearly impossible to talk about the best lip balms without mentioning the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. The K-Beauty brand’s little pink tub has sold out multiple times since it arrived to the U.S. a few years ago and is praised for saving dry, cracked lips. So no surprise, when Glamour readers were asked to weigh in on their all-time favorite balms for this year’s Glamour Beauty Awards, this took home the crown.
As its name implies, the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a leave-on mask that soothes and moisturizes lips overnight. Which is just a fancy way of saying it’s a really thick, nutrient-rich balm that goes to work to while you’re asleep (although, it’s so good, I wear it 24/7). It’s got all the good things you want in a balm: hydrating hyaluronic acid, brightening vitamin C, and antioxidants that work together to form a barrier over your lips to lock in moisture. Plus, the flavors are incredible. It comes in vanilla, apple lime, grapefruit, and the original berry, which features a delicious-smelling blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts (the latter is my fave).
The instructions ask you to apply a generous layer, which I do—and with reckless abandon. Most skin care products require “just a tiny bit,” so being able to slather on as much as I want feels like a necessary indulgence.
Despite being thick and goopy, the balm sinks into my lips within 15 or so minutes. It’s not tacky at all, and it wears off slowly as you sleep. You’re supposed to gently wipe or wash it off in the morning, but I rarely do. My desert-dry lips just soak up all of it—every night without fail.
I usually stash different lip balms in my coat pockets and bags, but the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is the one product I can actually rely on to do the work. It comes with a small applicator, which is my least favorite part about it since I find it hard to clean afterward, so I tend to use a Q-Tip instead. And actually, since our lips are relatively small compared to our faces, the tub lasts for months. (For the record, I’ve had mine for over a year.)
I’m usually to hard please when it comes to lip stuff. I need something that doesn’t dry out my lips more (I’m constantly licking them, although I know I shouldn’t), but is also low-maintenance. Bonus points if it looks pretty on my top shelf. My one gripe with other lip masks or scrubs is that it’s a whole process. You have to scoop, scrub, wipe, rinse…it’s too much. I just want something I can put on and forget about. Luckily, this is it for me.
And even though there’s no kissing happening once I have it on, the baby soft, smooth lips I get in the morning are totally worth it for me—and clearly, 13,000 other Glamour readers too.

While Kaye refreshes her bedroom every six months or so, her aesthetic is relatively consistent. “My style is largely influenced by natural hues and the southern California landscape,” she notes. “I’m endlessly inspired by the color palette of the beach and the desert.” As a result, her bedroom has an “unfussy, laid-back vibe with neutral tones, soft linens and lots of pillows,” she explains. She’s currently loving her brand’s brushed cotton sheets, which she likens to “sleeping in your favorite worn-in t-shirt.”
Kaye’s finishing touches include artwork from The Cartorialist, a moody reading lamp, and an old-school alarm clock. “I started using an alarm clock and charging my phone outside the bedroom,” she explains. “This simple shift has helped me sleep much more soundly — it eliminates blue light and the temptation to check my phone before bed or in the middle of the night.”
When designing his Los Angeles bedroom, Brady Tolbert, interior designer and creative director at Bobby Berk Design, focused on one thing: relaxation. “If you aren’t relaxed in your bedroom, then it’s time for a redesign,” he quips. “The sole purpose of a bedroom is to unwind and recharge, so design yours in a way that allows you to do just that.”
With that in mind, he settled on a soothing olive green, grey, and white color palette with balancing graphic elements, like the structural wall sconce and abstract artwork. “My space is a little bit minimal, a little bit collected, and 100% relaxing,” he explains. “I love my Brooklinen percale sheets — they’re so crisp and cool. My hybrid Tuft and Needle mattress has also been a game-changer for sleep quality.”
As far as tech, Tolbert believes that less is more — but he does love his dimmer lights and Google Home, which he uses as a noise machine. “I keep my lights at about 70% brightness, which is incredibly relaxing. If you don’t want to install dimmers, you can try smart light bulbs,” he explains. “I use the ambient sounds on my Google Home to help me fall asleep. Waking up to music is also nice.”
Erin Hiemstra, founder & creative director of Apartment 34, spent roughly five years renovating her historic San Francisco home, and saved the bedroom for last. “When I finally got around to it, I wanted it to feel as ‘adult’ as possible,” says the mom and full-time freelancer. For her, that meant proper floor-to-ceiling curtains, a cushy area rug from Lulu & Georgia, crisp white bedding from Parachute, a white noise machine, and a roaring marble fireplace.
“I think a bedroom should feel like a luxurious, yet very personal hotel,” she muses. “I was personally inspired by European design when decorating this space. Since I live in a historic home with amazing architectural elements, I really tried to play them up.”
But comfort is just as important as design for Hiemstra. “My bed is my ultimate happy place. As a freelancer, I do more work from here than I care to admit. As a mother, good sleep is also a prized commodity,” she explains. “My bedroom is my haven, my respite, my retreat from the rest of the day — there’s no better feeling than walking into a clean, calm, pulled together space at night.”
Sleep is a $70 billion industry—we throw our money at a dreamier night’s rest, promise ourselves we’ll prioritize it, and then gripe when we’re still, inevitably, so tired. Despite our collective obsession with sleep, we seem totally unable to get more of it. In fact, we’re clocking fewer hours than ever. So, this month, we’re taking a look at what’s getting in the way—and what to do about it.
Step 5: Begin gently removing gel
Use your cuticle pusher to gently (keyword gently) scrape the gel off your nails. “If there’s any resistance, place your fingertips back into the acetone for another minute or two and then try again,” says Hanna. “Repeat this process until the gel is completely removed.”
Step 6: Buff and moisturize nails and cuticles
Once the gel is completely removed, use a buffer to smooth your nail plate. Generously apply cuticle oil, and massage into your nails to nourish them.
Method 2: Wrap Your Nails in Acetone-Soaked Cotton and Foil
Nuñez’s preferred method uses a few more materials, but leaves your hands a little more free than the soak method.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Step 2: Prep the foil and cotton
Cut your foil into small squares that will fit around the tip of your finger, then cut your cotton pads or balls into pieces that are big enough to cover your entire nail.
Step 3: Break the seal
Same as the method above, remove the top layer of the gel polish with the nail file using light pressure. Start with the tip of your nail all the way down, then file the top of your nail, and use the manicuring brush to wipe off excess dust.
Step 4: Apply cotton and foil
Soak the cotton pads in remover, and then place them on your nails, making sure to cover your entire nail. Wrap the tip of your finger and the cotton pad in foil, and fold over the tip to lock in place. Repeat on all fingers, leave on for 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 5: Remove the polish
Going nail by nail, rub the foil and cotton back and forth a few times, and gently pull it off. Most of the polish should come with it. Then gently scrape off the rest with the cuticle stick. Repeat for each nail.
Step 6: Clean and nourish
Wipe away any residue with alcohol and a cotton ball, and then generously apply a nail and cuticle oil.

If you’re trying to find the words that potentially could make your current quarantine situation a little easier to stomach, here you go: easy pasta recipes.

(No crab and lobster linguini with fresh thyme here—one day, though!)
Keep reading to uncover 21 easy pasta recipes to make today, tomorrow, and—probably—the day after, too.
Hobbs & Shaw followed Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw after the events of 2017’s The Fate of the Furious. In the film, the two are forced to team up to take down Idris Elba’s Brixton, a cyber-genetically enhanced terrorist. Along the way, the heroes also join forces with Deckard’ MI6 Agent sister Hattie, played by Vanessa Kirby.
Street style heavyweights like Meghan Markle and Jennifer Lopez are obvious outfit crushes for the masses, but sometimes a ridiculously good dresser slips through the cracks, flying under the radar with an endless roster of inspirational, everyday looks. Emma Roberts is a prime example, and if you’ve been sleeping on the underrated style star, one quick web search confirms the actor’s special skill at flawlessly merging trendy pieces with reliable staples. The 29-year-old manages to wear riskier trends like puff sleeves and Western influences in the most approachable way—and with the most approachable brands, from Madewell to Reformation.
Even though the American Horror Story lead knows how to serve a red-carpet look, we’re more obsessed with Roberts’s L.A. looks, which are equal parts chill and polished. Maybe it runs in the family, because Julia Roberts, Emma’s aunt, has been shelling out iconic style for decades—but either way, we’re referring to her lengthy list of street style wins to inspire spring fashion update. If you’re also prepared to copy her entire closet, we pulled five of her best looks, below, and shopped them out for future outfit inspo. Luckily, everything she wears has a relaxed quality to it, which is fit for this unprecedented time when none of us are going literally anywhere.
Utility Suit + Crossbody Bag
We love a good boiler suit. We love a good box bag. And we really love this monochromatic look Emma Roberts wore for some shopping at a Los Angeles H&M. Unsurprisingly, this specific jumpsuit from Madewell is sold out, but the one from Urban Outfitters, below, will get the job done. If you’re not trying to spend a couple grand on a Louis Vuitton bag (same), shop this alternative cutie to complete the look.
Statement Sleeves + Straight-Leg Jeans
If you’re worried about voluminous sleeves’ reading too dramatic, tone down the romanticism with distressed denim. Emma’s floral Reformation top proved approachable and not too cutesy, thanks to frayed flared jeans and pointed-toe flats.
Leather Trench + Graphic Pants
The leather trench is truly the gift that keeps on giving—proving to have staying power year-round. Channel the ’90s with the waist-cinching jacket, then lean further into Matrix territory with a pair of graphic skinny pants and combat boots.
Floral Dress + Flats
What’s summertime without a floral-print sundress to drift through the warm breeze in? This high-neck midi dress with allover white flowers has us daydreaming about days to come when we can all be outside again. Wear it with a relaxed hair twist courtesy of the revived claw clip and a wooden bag for a seasonal touch.
Fringed Jacket + Animal Print
The Western trend isn’t the easiest thing to pull off, but Emma’s playful accessorizing with zebra-print sling-backs and a heart necklace makes her fringed suede jacket feel relatable and not too on-the-nose. Style yours with a baby tee and skinny jeans for your next Netflix social distancing party.
