All the news that is news or at least all the news that I found interesting. That’s called "curation" folks. Let’s dive right into what was going on this week, shall we?
There wasn’t a ton of news I found totally interesting this week but Jordan Peele making more movies and Martin Scorsese having opinions about movies are certainly interesting tidbits. Let’s take a look.
Sitting comfortably alongside VIFF for a number of years, Feminist Live Reads reaches through the fourth wall to give an even more intimate experience to the moviegoer set. And their love letter tonight to ‘Some Like It Hot’ was part live theatre, part jazz performance, all brought together by some of the most versatile women you’ll ever hear tearing through Billy Wilder’s electric script.
There really is a whole lot of news each week, isn’t there? This week has seem some pretty big bombs drop such as Kevin Feige working on a Star Wars, VIFF starting up, Jurassic World 3 casting news, Jason Bateman directing news, Phoebe Waller-Bridge gets a truck load of cash from Amazon news, Batman news, Wes Anderson news, and Spider-man is back in the MCU news. Let’s dive right in!

If there’s one thing Tom Cruise is famous for it’s being a dedicated and generous performer who will put his body on the line to make sure that you, the moviegoers, are entertained.

So here’s video of every Tom Cruise Run ever, which is probably the best way to get ready for Mission: Impossible – Fallout this coming weekend.
