While Laurence Fisburne is seemingly not involved, there are a number of returning faces appearing in The Matrix 4. Aside from Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, the upcoming movie will also include Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson, and Daniel Bernhardt reprising their roles from the original Matrix trilogy. Lana Wachowski found some stellar actors to help flesh out the cast including Neil Patrick Harris, Hamilton’s Jonathan Groff, Cristina Ricci, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Priyanka Chopra. Plus a number of cast members from Sense8 will appear as well.
Kevin Hart honestly seemed like an unusual choice to play a soldier in the Borderlands movie. While the video game the movie is based on has a lot of humor, and Hart made sense in that way, he probably wasn’t seen by many as “soldier” material. In the games, the character of Roland isn’t the funniest person you come across. And yet, this shows that if you put the work in, anybody can get to that point physically. And he does look every part the character of Roland.
I mean, how cool is that? There’s a new Kryptonian coming to town, and it looks like her superhero suit will be a fun alternate take to the one worn by Henry Cavill’s Superman across three blockbusters. While we can only see part of the costume, you can also see at least one way that it’ll differ from Cavill’s iconic design. Let’s break it all down.
As previously mentioned, the above Flash tease comes to us from Andy Muschietti’s personal social media accounts. This is actually the third in a series of suit teases, which he’s posted one after the other on the gram. The first teased the return of Michael Keaton’s iconic Batman suit, complete with a mysterious splatter of blood. Next came a brief look at Ezra Miller’s new costume for The Flash, which will presumably be constructed throughout the course of the movie’s mysterious runtime. Clearly there are three very different heroes who will be getting in on Barry Allen’s long-awaited solo adventure.
A new image from the film shows off Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet, and their castmates Rebecca Ferguson and Javier Bardem. Every teaser and image released for the movie adds a new wrinkle into what we know about the upcoming film and, above all else, just adds more hype for the highly anticipated blockbuster. Here is the image from Twitter:
Kate Middleton honored her children while announcing a new project that explores early childhood development.
On June 18, the Duchess of Cambridge shared a video to launch The Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood Development, an organization working to circumvent the “rising rate of poor mental health” by investing in the first five years of a child’s life.
“The Center hopes to raise awareness of why the first five years of life are just so important for our future life outcomes and what we can do as a society to embrace this golden opportunity to create a happier or mentally healthy, more nurturing society,” Middleton shared in a Twitter video. “By working together, my hope is that we can change the way we think about early childhood and transform lives for generations to come. Because I truly believe big change starts small.”
During her address, Kate Middleton wore yet another piece of jewelry that features the initials of her three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
The Trio Diamond Midnight Moon Necklace by British designer Daniella Draper retails for $1300 and is available to engrave with up to three characters. “The Duchess of Cambridge is an incredible role model—I look up to her as a young woman and a mother,” Draper told People. “Seeing her wearing one of my designs was a very proud moment. Everyone in the workshop thinks it’s just amazing. It’s good morale!”
This is not the first time Middleton has worn her children’s initials close to her heart. Back in September 2020, the Duchess wore a three-pendant necklace adorned with a G, C, and L to a meetup with parents to discuss how families were holding up during the COVID-19 pandemic.
More recently, Middleton paid tribute to Princess Diana by wearing an elegant pearl bracelet from her late mother-in-law’s collection to the G-7 Summit on June 11. Clearly, the Duchess is sentimental when it comes to her jewelry collection and we love to see it.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt share six children together, three of whom are their biological children and three of whom were adopted internationally. Maddox, 19, was already involved in the custody case, sharing testimony back in March that allegedly “wasn’t flattering” toward Pitt. The former couple also share Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt (17), Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt (16), Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt (15), Knox Léon Jolie-Pitt (12) and Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt (12). Zahara, Pax and Maddox were adopted by Brad Pitt after Angelina Jolie had adopted them overseas.
The last year has been hard on all of us. While we all experienced the pandemic differently, we all certainly experienced it and we all found different ways of coping with the incredibly unusual experience. Some people watched everything they could on Netflix while furloughed from work. Some buried themselves in doing work from home. Dwayne Johnson couldn’t go out and make movies like he used to, but the actor says that one thing that helped him work through quarantine mentally was that even though he had nowhere to go, he acted each morning like he did.
17-year-old Jack Dylan Grazer was thinking of the idea on the spot, and honestly, I’m sold. What’s lovely about the movie Luca is you want to live in the atmosphere already, so the idea of a full-fledged ride based on the movie would be delightful. Perhaps it would best fit in Epcot in Orlando, Florida in the Italian Pavilion. The movie’s Guilia, played by newcomer Emma Berman, also shared her thoughts on Luca in the Disney parks:
Just a few days after Naomi Osaka took a stand to protect her mental health, the four-time Grand Slam winner has dropped out of the 2021 French Open, also known as Roland Garros. Here’s exactly what went down.
Naomi Osaka announced she would not participate in press at the French Open.
On May 27, the tennis star explained her decision in an Instagram post, which has since been deleted. “I’m writing this to say I’m not going to do any press during Roland Garros,” she wrote, per British Vogue. “I’ve often felt that people have no regard for athletes’ mental health and this rings true whenever I see a press conference or partake in one.”
“We’re often sat there and asked questions that we’ve been asked multiple times before or asked questions that bring doubt into our minds and I’m just not going to subject myself to people that doubt me,” the 23-year-old continued, likening questions about losses to “kicking a person while they’re down.”
She added, “I’ve watched many clips of athletes breaking down after a loss in the press room and I know you have as well.”
Venus Williams replied, “Girl, do you. Your life is yours to live!”
Osaka was fined $15,000 by all four Grand Slam tournaments.
After making good on her promise not to speak to the press after her first-round win on May 30, all four Grand Slam tournaments—Roland Garros, Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Australian Open—released a joint statement.
“Naomi Osaka today chose not to honour her contractual media obligations. The Roland-Garros referee has therefore issued her a $15,000 fine, in keeping with article III H. of the Code of Conduct,” they wrote. “The mental health of players competing in our tournaments and on the Tours is of the utmost importance to the Grand Slams.”
Despite that pledge, the organizations insisted that the fine was a matter of fairness to other players. “We want to underline that rules are in place to ensure all players are treated exactly the same, no matter their stature, beliefs, or achievement,” read the statement. “As a sport there is nothing more important than ensuring no player has an unfair advantage over another, which unfortunately is the case in this situation if one player refuses to dedicate time to participate in media commitments while the others all honor their commitments.”
However, on March 13, Lopez and Rodriguez release a statement that they are still together. “We are working through some things,” Lopez and Rodriguez said in a joint statement, which was obtained by People.
“She’s working in the Dominican Republic and he’s in Miami, so it’s tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and COVID,” a source added. “But they want to try to stay together.”
The pair further commented on the rumors on their own. On March 13, Rodriguez told paparazzi “I’m not single,” according to a video obtained by TMZ. Meanwhile, on March 14, J.Lo included headlines about their supposed breakup in a new TikTok video. “I ain’t worried bout a blog,” Saweetie raps in the background. “Every lie off your lips get me views.”
By March 16, the pair were reunited in the Dominican Republic, where TMZ reported that the pair were photographed kissing. The day before, Rodriguez tagged Lopez in an Instagram Story of his view. “Happy Monday,” he captioned the clip. “New week. New day. Onward. Upward.”
April 2021: The couple confirmed in a statement to Today that they’ve broken up. “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” they said. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”
