An interesting wrinkle in this piece of the theory is that Neo, Trinity and Morpheus have been respawned in The Matrix Resurrections. However, only Morpheus seems to have changed form, unless that other guy Neo sees in the mirror is his true form. For now, the respawning theory is valid, as classic Matrix figures have returned. But to potentially explain Morpheus’ new face, we have to turn back to the original trilogy.

After being delayed from its previous December 2020 release slot, Denis Villenueve’s Dune is a little over a month away from hitting theaters. Well, if you live in the United States, that is. But in various international markets like France, Germany, Italy and Russia, the latest film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel from 1965 is now playing, and the movie already collected an impressive amount of money in France alone.
Adapted from author William Lindsay Gresham’s 1946 page turner, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Nightmare Alley committed to the screen. A 1947 version, starring Tyrone Power, was coincidentally a product of 20th Century Fox; which probably explains how Guillermo del Toro was able to tackle the project in a more contemporary fashion. But be forewarned, this isn’t merely an adaptation of the previous film. Mr. del Toro, who co-wrote Nightmare Alley’s script with writer Kim Morgan, has gone on record as stating that this is a re-adaptation of facets from Gresham’s original novel.
Amores Perros (2000) – Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu
Ah, love is a bitch, ain’t it?
Well, at least to Alejandro Gonzalez Innarito, it is, because that’s what the title Amores Perros translates to. In this psychological drama film, Amores Perros follows three distinct stories, all of which are connected by a car accident in Mexico City. One centers on a teenager in the slums, another on a model who hurts her leg, and the other with a mysterious hitman, with dogs appearing in all three.
I sort of think of this film as the predecessor to films like Crash, where there are several different storylines but all of them have something to do with one big event. And honestly, it’s such a great example of that. Each of the stories in of themselves are compelling and have characters that you are interested about, but the real draw is that you get to see everything come together beautifully to tie into the same event.
As Justin Chon noted in our conversation, the scene wasn’t really about Alicia Vikander’s Kathy sounding great, but instead the Oscar winner being able to use the moment to express an emotional statement about her connection with Chon’s Antonio. In essence, Vikander having a great voice was just a huge bonus, and it earned her a wonderful response from the crew. Chon recounted,
Irina Shayk might be against the term “coparenting,” but she’s all for giving props to Bradley Cooper, the father of her four-year-old daughter.
In a new interview with Highsnobiety‘s HIGHStyle the model praised her ex, Cooper, for his “hands-on” approach to raising their daughter. “He’s a full-on, hands-on dad—no nanny,” Shayk said. “[My daughter] Lea went on holiday with him for almost two weeks—I didn’t call them once.”
Honestly, we’re not about praising dads for doing the bare minimum when it comes to raising children—especially considering society’s seemingly endless expectations for mothers—but everyone needs help sometimes, so this is honestly pretty impressive. A no-nanny policy in Hollywood is practically unheard of!
This interview lines up with another statement she gave about Cooper’s strengths as a father back in March 2021. While referring to her ex as “the most amazing dad,” she also explained why she rejects the term “coparenting.”
“I never understood the term ‘coparenting,’” she told Elle at the time. “When I’m with my daughter, I’m 100% a mother, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100% her dad. Coparenting is parenting.”
Shayk, who typically keeps her family life pretty private, also opened up to HIGHStyle about their “very strict” parenting style. “When she finishes eating, she gets up from the table, takes her plate, says ‘thank you.’ Without ‘please’ or ‘thank you,’ she’s not getting anything,” Shayk continued. “It’s hard, because she has so many toys. I had one doll, and I still have this doll. Blonde, blue eyes, big Russian doll. My grandma used to make clothes for her.”
Shayk continued, “I always explain, ‘Look, this is my doll. I had only one.’ Or sometimes, ‘You have this candy. I used to have candy only for Christmas.’”
Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper called off their four-year relationship in June 2019. “I think in all good relationships you bring your best and your worst—it’s just the nature of a human being,” Shayk told Vogue in a candid interview seven months after their split. “Two great people don’t have to make a good couple.”
When host Andy Cohen asked Paulson what her next project with Ryan Murphy will be, she said, shockingly, “I don’t know.”
Murphy, of course, is the prolific creator of American Horror Story and American Crime Story—two shows that catapulted Sarah Paulson to A-list status. She’s consistently been starring in Murphy productions since 2012, but is this the end of an era?
“This is the first time in about three years where I don’t know [what’s next],” Paulson told Cohen. “I think this is my last season of Horror Story, probably. I mean, I don’t know. Every time he comes to me with some whack-a-doodle-stoodle character, I tend to be like, ‘Yes, let’s do it.’ So, I don’t know.”
She says this around the five-minute mark in the video, below.
If Paulson is done with American Horror Story, she’s leaving behind a major legacy. The actor first appeared in a supporting role on AHS season one, Murder House. She then broke out in season two, Asylum, playing journalist Lana Winters. Along the way she’s played a witch, conjoined twins, a ghost inside a creepy hotel, and, much to my dismay, a woman with trypophobia (a.k.a fear of hole clusters). Watching that character gave me trypophobia. Really!
Just because Paulson might be done with Horror Story, though, doesn’t mean she’s exiting the Ryan Murphy universe. She earned perhaps her finest reviews ever playing Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. And she’s garnering similar praise for her turn as Linda Tripp in the newest Crime Story season, Impeachment—albeit with criticism attached. Paulson’s wearing a fat suit for the part has polarized viewers, and she addressed the controversy in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times.
“It’s very hard for me to talk about this without feeling like I’m making excuses,” Paulson said. “There’s a lot of controversy around actors and fat suits, and I think that controversy is a legitimate one. I think fatphobia is real. I think to pretend otherwise causes further harm.”
The incident occurred at a restaurant in LaVale, Maryland, according to the report run by TMZ. For an unspecified reason, Eddie Deezen was “causing a scene” at said restaurant and asked to leave. Deezen refused, even when law enforcement had arrived to escort him from the premises. Before his arrest, the actor assaulted the officers called to the scene via throwing objects at his eventual captors.
If it feels like everywhere you look a new celebrity has platinum-blonde hair, you’re not alone. Bleach blonde is taking over Hollywood. And with a history stretching from Jean Harlow (the OG “bombshell blonde”) to Debbie Harry, the color stands the test of time for giving anyone an insouciantly cool vibe.
Especially after multiple seasons of rainbow, mermaid, and kaleidoscopic colors, platinum’s like a palate cleanser that hits “hip but minimalist” squarely on the head. It’s definitely not effortless, but as these celebrities’ bleached looks in varying shades of blonde prove, it’s worth the maintenance. Roots: also good.
He called me on the phone. At first I hadn’t read the script yet, and he proposed this idea and said he was doing this sort of weird tone poem about Diana, and asked whether or not I would be interested in tackling the subject at all, before he sent the script. Kind of without thinking, very irresponsibly, I said ‘Yes, absolutely.’
