After what feels like forever, with Marvel executives constantly promising that an LGBTQ superhero is coming, the major movie studio has revealed who the first one will be – the Thor franchise’s Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson. It wasn’t much of a surprise to fans, as Tessa – who identifies as bisexual herself – confirmed back in 2017 that a scene where a woman left Valkyrie’s bedroom, implying that they had been intimate together, had been cut from Thor: Ragnarok. At the...

Last night on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen referenced a brand new movie (Dolemite Is My Name) that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess (a guest with Orange Is The New Black actress Laverne Cox) had just completed with comedic icon Eddie Murphy, and the reaction from Burgess did not go according to plan, to say the least. After Cohen referenced Murphy’s well documented and beyond problematic relationship with the LGBT community, Burgess became visibly agitated and...

The coming-of-age tale – which charts the life of a disenfranchised African-American man in poverty-stricken Miami – received widespread acclaim upon release, especially for its inclusion of queer men of colour. Moonlight ultimately received eight nominations at the 89th Academy Awards and won Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali) and Best Adapted Screenplay. It became the first film with an all-black cast to win Best Picture. IndieWire recently published their top 100 movies of the decade and Moonlight received the...

During an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the acclaimed filmmaker was asked whether fans could expect a third release in the revenge martial arts franchise, which famously starred Uma Thurman as The Bride. “Me and Uma have been talking about it recently, frankly, to tell you the truth,” Quentin said. “I’m not sure I’m going to do it, but I have thought about it a little further.” He continued to say that he and Uma “were literally talking about”...

After months of anticipation, we finally know when Marvel’s upcoming Black Widow solo film will be set. Over the weekend, the cast of the highly-anticipated blockbuster appeared at Comic-Con in San Diego and confirmed that the Scarlett Johansson vehicle will take place in Budapest between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. It comes as no surprise to fans that Black Widow will be a prequel considering the character – SPOILER ALERT! – sacrificed herself in Avengers: Endgame to save...

Comedian and actor Billy Eichner, who plays meerkat Timon in the Lion King remake, has confirmed that he played the role with some “gay sensibility.” Referencing Nathan Lane, who played Timon in the animated version, he told Buzzfeed: “I’m glad that Jon Favreau kept the tradition of Timon being played by a gay actor, with a certain type of comedic sensibility, alive.” But Eichner then cast doubt on Timon and Pumbaa being in a relationship, saying: “Timon and Pumbaa are...

Scarlett Johansson has clarified her recent controversial comments about casting in the movie industry. Last week, the actress – who has played Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2010 – spoke about political correctness with As If following her casting in Rub & Tug, in which she was set to portray a transgender man. She also received backlash for her role in the film adaptation of Japanese anime series, Ghost in the Shell, which fans argued should’ve gone to...

For Billy Eichner, getting cast in Disney’s photo-real remake of The Lion King as Timon — the wisecracking meerkat companion to Seth Rogen’s happy-go-lucky warthog — was a Broadway kid’s dream come true.“I grew up doing musical theater,” Eichner told BuzzFeed News. “I was on...

Review: Midsommar  Starring: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter  140 minutes  Rated R for disturbing ritualistic violence and grisly images, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and language Yes, it’s ok to laugh. Writer/director Ari Aster‘s follow-up to Hereditary, a 140-minute pagan horror opus called Midsommar (that’s pronounced mid-so-MAR) is more consistently laugh-out-loud funny than nearly any other movie I’ve seen in 2019. That’s intentional. Everything in an Ari Aster movie is deeply deliberate. Though it’s not as purely frightening and emotionally draining as Hereditary, Aster’s sophomore outing is...
