Megan Thee Stallion had a massive 2019 thanks to the platinum hit “Cash Shit,” her Fever project, and her viral “Hot Girl Summer” sensation. Now, her breakout streak is continuing to blaze on — after weeks of hype, the Houston rapper has unleashed her first solo single of the year, “B.I.T.C.H.”
Meg’s new track samples Tupac’s “Ratha Be Ya N***a,” off All Eyez On Me, and finds her firmly back in her bad-bitch zone. “Why you wanna play with me? You know I’m undefeated / A real hot girl know how to keep a n***a heated,” she confidently spits over a bouncy beat. That snarling dog on the cover art? Yeah, that’s pretty much the vibe here.
“B.I.T.C.H” marks Megan’s second release of 2020, following her Birds of Prey collaboration with Normani, “Diamonds.” The new single will appear on the ascendant star’s hotly anticipated debut album, Suga, on which she’ll be introducing fans to her next persona. In a press release, she said that “Suga” is “besties with Tina Snow… it’s a big problem.” She also teased that the new album will include work with Kehlani, and that “more hot collaborations and surprises” are on the way.
No word yet on when the sure-to-be-hot Suga will arrive. In the meantime, press play on “B.I.T.C.H” above.
Considering the spot Red Granite is currently in with the Malaysian and U.S. goverments, it’s slim that Jordan Belfort will be getting the $300 million he’s asked for in his lawsuit. However, he could be freed from the rights agreement he made with the production company. Belfort could negotiate the rights to his Wolf of Wall Street sequel memoir, Catching the Wolf of Wall Street. Check out what Red Granite’s lawyer said about the case:
We Haven’t Seen Her Reunite With Anyone From Her Old Life
When Carol Danvers returned to Earth in 1995, she crossed paths again with her best friend, Maria Rambeau, and Maria’s daughter, Monica. The reunion was welcome, but short-lived since Carol went back into space, and while she and Nick Fury were near each other at Tony Stark’s funeral, we never actually saw them reunite with one another.
The only notable absences from the big Ghostbusters reunion is Rick Moranis’ Louis Tully, as Moranis hasn’t appeared in a movie in twenty years, and Harold Ramis’ Egon Spengler, who died back in 2014. Bill Murray spoke about the fallen Ghostbuster in the on-set interview with these words:
At the beginning of January, the streaming platform removed Dr. Dolittle, Strange Magic, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The Sandlot and so forth. Now, as of February 1, one of those titles is returning to Disney+: the 1993 cult-classic The Sandlot. And hey, this is great news for fans of the baseball-centered family comedy!
While horror movies are made with the intention of scaring movie-goers, it’s not uncommon for the people who make them to have a lot of fun during production. Those who possess the prankster spirit can find nearly endless opportunities to get up to some mischief on spooky, dimly lit sets and with creepy props and elements of production design, and it can often make the whole experience a lot more fun between takes.
Floria Signismondi’s new film The Turning is a prime example. Most of the production took place on the grounds of a creepy mansion/estate in Ireland, and actress Brooklynn Prince did her best to utilize it to her advantage and scare her co-stars. As I learned sitting down with Prince and Finn Wolfhard during the film’s Los Angeles press day, however, the efforts didn’t exactly go as planned:
Amazing Thursday news, people: Another Mean Girls movie is in the works—with Tina Fey attached. That’s right: According to Variety, an adaption of the Mean Girls musical, which Fey also wrote, is happening.
“I’m very excited to bring Mean Girls back to the big screen,” Fey said in a statement. “It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I’ve spent sixteen years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe and I love them dearly.”
If you’re a fan of Mean Girls, then you know a second film (Mean Girls 2) has already happened. But this adaptation of the musical will include Fey behind the scenes—which Mean Girls 2 did not. That means you can count on the same humor and style you love and still quote from the original 2004 movie.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing this iconic property back to the big screen in musical form with our incredible filmmaking team,” Paramount president of production Elizabeth Raposo said, according to Variety.
There’s no word yet on casting for the movie, but here’s hoping a few of the film’s original stars come back. Wouldn’t it be great to see Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried and company reprise their iconic roles? Or at least make some memorable cameos.
The Mean Girls musical stays true to the 2004 movie’s DNA, offering a similar story with some stellar songs thrown into the mix. “It has been a joy to work on Mean Girls and to watch it go from film, to musical, and now to musical film,” Lorne Michaels, who help produced both the musical and 2004’s Mean Girls, said. “I am very proud that Tina’s story and characters continue to resonate with new generations.”
Let the countdown to this new movie begin. I just have one request: Bring Glen Coco back!
That’s because Denis Villeneuve wants to bring new, original stories to the screen instead of just playing the hits with sequel after sequel. So he wouldn’t want to just do extensions of what’s been done before with a continuation of Blade Runner 2049. However, as the director told Empire, he would still be interested in revisiting the universe of the film to tell an entirely new story.
From the very first trailer, it was clear Captain Marvel was going to be a game-changer in the superhero genre. And the movie proved as much as soon as it came out in March 2019: Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie shattered box office records by making $455 million its opening weekend. (It eventually made a cool billion dollars.) The best part? Captain Marvel was the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have a woman co-director and writer (Anna Boden) helming things behind the camera.
Now, according to the The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel to Captain Marvel is in the works. The company has reportedly started developing the new film, and while there are still a lot of details we don’t know, here’s what we’ve gathered about the project so far:
The film is going to star Larson again, who reprised her role as Danvers for Avengers: Endgame. So far, she’s the only person listed on the sequel’s IMDb page, so we’ll have to wait and see who else is joining her in the follow-up adventure. We’re hoping Samuel L. Jackson comes back so he can recreate some adorable press moments with Larson.
According to sources who spoke to THR, Boden and Ryan Fleck are busy with other projects and may not take on the second installment. However, Marvel and Disney are reportedly working to find a woman director to take the reins from them.
THR reports that Megan McDonnell, one of the lead writers on the Elizabeth Olsen-led series WandaVision, is in final negotiations to write the film’s script.
The premiere date:
The film is expected to come in 2022, although that could change, since the whole thing is still in development. Here’s hoping it coms sooner, though, because we can’t wait to see Larson kick ass on screen again.
