Upcoming Zack Snyder Movies: What The Justice League Director Is Directing And Producing Next

Twilight Of The Gods – TV Series (Executive Producer) – TBA (Pre-Production)

As the last item on this list, it seems that it’s one of Zack Snyder’s passion projects as well. We’ve seen Snyder tackle zombies, superheroes, and soon space. But apparently, he wants to step into another genre – Norse mythology.

The Norse-inspired anime series will be coming to Netflix sometime in the future and will feature a large voice-cast that will be behind the characters of the gods. Recently, Netflix Geeked tweeted out an image of the cast. Some notable names are Lauren Cohan as Inge, known for her roles in The Walking Dead and Supernatural, as well as Kristopher Hivju, who became recognizable from his breakout role in Game of Thrones as Tormund Giantsbane.

Based on what was reported back in 2019 by Deadline, Zack Snyder is teaming with Jay Oliva for the series. The two will write the show, with Oliva serving as showrunner. 

With how much content Zack Snyder is producing for the streaming platform, I have a feeling that we’ll all be turning to Netflix a lot more often in the next couple of years.

Jason Momoa’s Just Messing Around While Waiting To Film Aquaman 2, But I Still Love That His Trailer Says ‘Arthur’

While the clothes, tats, and Jason Momoa in general are cool as hell, I can’t help but zone in on the fact that Momoa’s trailer still says Arthur for the sequel. I just take it as a huge gesture that Momoa is really connected to the character and has really taken his portrayal of the superhero to heart, even seeing it as a personal identity.

Jungle Cruise Reviews Are Online, Here’s What Critics Are Saying About The New Dwayne Johnson Movie

Disney’s next blockbuster is almost here. Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star in Jungle Cruise, which is based on the Disney theme park ride (and movies based off of theme park rides have done pretty well in the past, ahem, Pirates of the Caribbean). The film was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax, Orphan) and also features Edgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamati. In the adventure flick set during the early 20th century, a riverboat captain named Frank (Johnson) takes a British scientist (Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on a mission into a jungle to find the Tree of Life– which is believed to possess healing powers that could greatly benefit modern medicine. Along the journey, the trio must fight against dangerous wild animals, a deadly environment, and a competing German expedition that is determined to reach the tree first.

The Disney blockbuster had its premiere at Disneyland this past weekend, which seemed to be a pretty fun time, and we also saw early reactions to the film on social media, which were pretty positive overall. While it doesn’t release until this Friday, July 30 (in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access), the review embargo has broken and critics are starting to share their thoughts. Let’s see what they’re saying.

John Wick 4: Donnie Yen Looks Sharp And Ready To Kick Ass With Keanu In New Set Photo

Exactly how Donnie Yen’s character will fit into John Wick: Chapter 4 we don’t really know. It’s being reported that Yen’s character shares many of the same enemies as Keanu Reeves’ character, as well as the same history, which could mean Yen’s character actually made it out of the life, as Wick had once done, before the death of a puppy started a chain reaction that brought the former killer back. One assumes this means we will see Reeves and Yen fighting alongside each other rather than trying to kill each other, but who knows? We could start off in one place and by the end be somewhere very different.

The Reverse Cat Eye Trend Is a Fierce Upgrade To Winged Liner

We love a simple makeup switch. It doesn’t have to be anything too crazy, but just a subtle accent or a change of emphasis can have very chic consequences.

Case in point: the reverse cat eye. It has all the fierceness of regular winged liner, it’s just inverted to focus the attention on your lower lash line. The result is a smoky, sultry under-eye that wings out at the corner to create a sexy feline shape.

The trend’s taken off on TikTok after makeup artist @paintedbyspencer shared a video of himself applying the look with the caption “Have you tried the reverse cat eye? It’s my favorite.”

Since then, creators around the world have given the trend a go themselves.

And, to help everyone along, Spencer shared a tutorial with all his tips.

“First things first, run a greyish-toned eyeshadow through the upper lid. Once it’s really blown out and effortless, take that same shade and run it through the lower lash line,” he says.

“This is where it gets fun. Now I’m taking a gel black liner and I’m gonna run this pencil through my waterline. The important part here is to really bring it into the inner corner,” Spencer added.

“Extend that inner corner, then wing it out on the outer corner. Don’t worry about bringing it down too far, just keep it in the water line. Once we smoke it out with a brush, all of that work will be done for us,” he explained.

“Now take a detailed eye brush with some black eyeshadow and diffuse out the edges,” says Spencer. Add some mascara to your top and bottom lashes, and that’s it. “It’s really, really, really easy. It’s simple, short, sweet, to the point and nearly foolproof,” he says.

Of course, it’s not the first time we’ve seen the look. Kim K (who else) rocked it on the Cannes red carpet back in 2016 and even Kristen Stewart has been known to rep the trend. The actress wore it to the premier of the film she directed, Come Swim, in 2017.


But with more of us admitting we’re ready to experiment, this easy upgrade is a pretty way to freshen up our everyday makeup.

Georgina Pazcoguin Drops Her Skin-Care Routine

When you picture a ballerina, chances are your mind will settle on a classic stereotype: Stick thin, white, quiet. Georgina Pazcoguin wants to change that. Pazcoguin, who has been a dancer in The New York City Ballet since 2001, has made a name for herself as the “Rogue Ballerina,” and challenges every stereotype about the profession. She’s funny, outspoken, and as the NYCB’s first Asian American woman to be promoted to an upper tier, is a founding member of Final Bow For Yellowface

Pazcoguin has also been open about the darker aspects of the ballet industry, which she details in her memoir Swan Dive: The Making of a Rogue Ballerina, out July 27. “I’m so excited to share my my story,” she tells me over Zoom. “I touch upon a lot of women’s issues and being a sort of outlier in the world of ballet. You’ve talked to me now for 30 minutes, I am not the quintessential idea of what a ballerina is. I’m not super dainty, I just don’t subscribe to those norms.”

“I want everyone to know that ballet should be a vehicle to tell stories through different lens, and it’s truly for everyone,” she continues. “I want to break down this idea that all ballerinas have eating disorders and daddy issues. I want to break down the idea that you have to be a person of a certain social standing to come to the ballet. I also want people to know who these dancers are on stage.”

While it’s clear she lives her life without abandon, when it comes to makeup and skin care, Pazcoguin has to err on the side of caution. She’s always had sensitive skin and eczema, but her company-issued stage makeup broke her out in a rash during a particular stressful leading role. “I think whatever we were using I had been allergic to, compounded with stress, and I had these boils on my face, it was terrifying,” she says. That lead her down the path of scrutinizing ingredient lists, and after two years of intense research—and a 20 page list of ingredients to avoid—she’s finally settled on a stage makeup and skin care routine that doesn’t irritate her skin. 

Though she needs her skin care to be gentle on her skin, she still needs powerful products, especially when it comes to cleansing—in addition to her standard ballet makeup, Pazcoguin was in Cats on Broadway, where she was in full-on cat makeup five nights a week. So what made the cut? Pazcoguin reveals the “high-brow, low-brow” products she can’t get enough of. Read on as she drops her routine

My cleanser: 

 It depends on if I’m in a performance season or if in my every day, but generally in the morning, I use the Aesop Purifying Facial Cream Cleanser.  It has lavender, chamomile, and a white clay that’s very soothing to my skin in the morning. If I’m cleansing post-show, I’ll remove the heavier makeup with an organic coconut oil which I’m currently in the process of finding a sustainable option—I’ve been thinking about where I should be putting my money to support the right people. And then what I have found is that the Koh Gen Do Cleansing Water has been really great to help remove some of that the waterproof mascara and stuff like that.

My toners: 

I’m a huge fan of the Thayers Witch Hazel as a toner, always have been, especially when it comes to post-show, when the skin is just raw. For a splurge— because I’m here in California right now and I’m not in my home, and I’m needing things to kind of make me feel a little bit pampered— I’ve been using the Aesop B & Tea Balancing Toner, which obviously has a little bit more for fragrance, it just feels a little bit more luxurious. And you know, if I’m spending this much time away from home, I feel like it’s a nice gift to myself. I use both of those morning and night.

My serums: 

This is a new addition. There was a shift in my lifestyle when the pandemic hit, clearly I could not be performing every night. And then all of a sudden, I didn’t have to put on this crazy makeup every night. And that’s when I was like, Oh, well, maybe I can look at this in a different way. And I went to my friends at Aesop and I got the Lucent Facial Concentrate, and I really, really love it, it has rose petals in it.  I’ll do that in the morning, and then every opposite morning I’ve been doing Aesop’s Parsley Seed Antioxidant eye serum. She is getting older, and espeically when I go out drinking, the next morning that definitely helps with puffiness.

My face oil: 

I also use the Aesop Damascan Rose Facial Treatment. It’s a thicker oil that I will apply before I get on the plane. It’s also great for L.A. weather, when I’m in the sun. It’s a very, very restorative moisturizer, I use it when my skin needs a little extra love. It’s my saving grace. When it gets really cold, like the first hit of cold in New York, that’s when I use it.

My moisturizers: 

Moisturizer is one thing I am dedicated to because of the eczema. In terms of my face moisturizer, my love of all time is the Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream. It’s also got the chamomile bud in it, which is so calming. The theme is just like, Calm down skin. And then, like when it gets super hot and humid, and I don’t want to put on a thick cream, I use Aesop Seeking Silence, and  it’s very, very light. That’s just enough, especially since I’m putting on SPF too.

My body lotion: 

I stick to the highbrow for my face, that’s like the splurge. But for the body, I find that the Vanicream light lotion is perfect. It’s so wonderful. And you can use the Vanicream on your face, it’s all purpose. If I need more, or if I had like a sunburn or something, I’ll get out the organic shea butter and kind of mix that into the lotion and make my own. 

Scarlett Johansson Totally Remarked On Florence Pugh’s Sweatiness The First Week They Worked Together On Black Widow (Much To Her Mortification)

After a long year of waiting, the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally returned to theaters with Cate Shortland’s Black Widow. In addition to providing closure for Scarlett Johansson’s title character, the movie also introduced us to newcomers including Florence Pugh’s Yelena. And Pugh revealed that Johansson totally remarked on her sweatiness when they started working together– much to her chagrin.

A Knives Out Star Is In Greece Where The Sequel Is Filming, Could They Be Joining Daniel Craig?

And Rian Johnson certainly didn’t drop the ball when it came to casting Knives Out’s highly anticipated sequel. Some iconic names include Dave Bautista, Ed Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., Ethan Hawke, and Jada Pinkett Smith. The movie’s story and official title are being kept under wraps for the time being, but every set photo sets the internet ablaze.

Margot Robbie Just Called James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad The GOAT Of Superhero Films

Did she just say, the greatest comic book film ever made? I mean, that’s some high praise, indeed. Granted, a lot of this could just be Margot Robbie trying to build even more enthusiasm for the film, which comes to theaters and HBO Max simultaneously on August 5th. But still, when somebody makes a statement like that, the hype level goes from moderately hyped, to through the roof amped in only a few seconds.

The Suicide Squad will hit HBO Max the same time as theaters. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.
