Whiskey Cavalier’s Exploding Tampon Commercial Is Too Good

 

A spy’s gotta do what a spy’s gotta do, and in this case, she’s gotta prevent government leaks with a handy tampon grenade.

E! News is here to bring you another bit of “spyvertising” for the new ABC show Whiskey Cavalier, and this one might just be our personal favorite. It stars Lauren Cohan as one of those tampon commercial ladies who’s free to wear all white with no fear of leaks of any kind, all thanks to S.P.Y. brand tampons, which have a 360 blast radius. Perfect for a spy on the go!

“Danger just got fun” indeed.

Please also see the fine print at the bottom of the screen: “Feminine spygiene products not for internal use. Seriously.”

This is the third of these ad spoofs ABC has put out so far, and we debuted the first two earlier this week, including an ad for a romantic getaway (extensive government training required) and a poison-filled engagement ring (from L’Espionnage Jewelers).

The show follows FBI Agent Will Chase (Scott Foley) and CIA Agent Frankie Trowbridge (Lauren Cohan) as they team up to lead a somewhat ragtag team of spies, and we’re here to tell you it’s delightful, just as these ads are.

Whiskey Cavalier premieres on ABC on February 27 with a special sneak preview airing after the Oscars on February 24.

What is the best day to get married? If you’re taking a page from Tommy Lee‘s book, it’s on Valentine’s Day.

Today, the legendary musician tied-the-knot with the 32-year-old Vine star, Brittany Furlan.

“It’s official,” she captioned her Instagram post. “We’re married!!! MR & MRS LEE YAHOOOOOOOO.”

It didn’t take long for the Mötley Crüe rock star to share the exciting news with his followers, writing, “Holy shitballs!!!! We did it!!!!”

Sadly, photos of the actual wedding ceremony haven’t been posted. Instead, Mrs. Lee shared an adorable picture of their pups dressed as the bride and groom.

She did, however, share sweet messages from friends on her Instagram Stories. Many sent the two lovebirds well wishes, saying, “The real #royalwedding. Happy Valentine’s Day & blessings to you both on your wedding day.”

Another wrote, “So happy for you two. May all your ups and downs come only in the bedroom.”

While many would consider this the most romantic day to walk down the aisle, Valentine’s Day holds an even more special meaning for the newlyweds.

Last Valentine’s Day, the 56-year-old musician popped the big question to the Vine star.

“Well this certainly beats chocolates,” Brittany captioned her Instagram video, where she showed off her massive diamond engagement ring.

“Say hello to future Mrs. Lee.”

It looks like this V-Day also “beats chocolates,” considering the couple is finally married!

This is Tommy’s fourth wedding. He was previously married to Elaine Bergen from 1984 to 1985, Heather Locklear from 1986 to 1993 and Pamela Anderson from 1995-1998. He and Anderson share two sons, Brandon, 22, and Dylan, 21.

The musician was also engaged to Sofia Toufa in 2014, but they split in 2016.

Congrats to the newlyweds!

There’s a baby on board for Eliza Dushku!

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bring It On star revealed Thursday that she and husband Peter Palandjian are expecting their first child together.

Eliza confirmed the pregnancy news to Us Weekly at a special screening of her documentary Mapplethorpe in New York City, gushing, “We’re just very excited. We just got married in August. It’s a special year for us.”

The 38-year-old actress tied the knot with Peter, who is 54 and the CEO of Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation, in a courtyard at the Boston Public Library on Aug. 18, 2018. One year prior, the lovebirds announced their engagement.

Dushku also shared with the outlet that she’s busy preparing for her last year at Suffolk University, where she’s studying holistic healing, addiction and trauma.

As she described, “I’m newly married and I’m just so excited about this next chapter in my life. You know, I’ve been acting since I was 9-years-old and I’m sort of finding these new things that I’m really excited about. It’s been a big year but a great year.”

Last November, Eliza celebrated 10 years of sobriety.

Can Love Survive a Little Distance?

Can Love Survive a Little Distance?

A new trailer for Five Feet Apart is here to give you the feels. The movie is based on Rachel Lippincott’s novel of the same name and is clearly aimed at the young adult crowd, perhaps going for the same group that showed up to see The Fault in Our Stars a handful of years ago. Similarly, this movie plays on the idea of tragically sick, young people falling in love, but with a heart-wrenching twist.

The trailer starts out with two young people striking up a romance. The key difference being that they’re both very sick and can’t come within more than a handful of feet of one another, or they could die. The footage is setting up a very emotional and frustrating journey for these two, who have a deep understanding of what they’re both going through. Maddeningly, it’s exactly because of this shared experience, for practical reasons, they can’t be together. If nothing else, this looks like it’s going to be an early 2019 tearjerker.

In Five Feet Apart, Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) is a mostly normal seventeen-year-old, attached to her laptop and her friends. But unlike most people her age, she’s got cystic fibrosis and has to spend a ton of time in the hospital. Her boundary-filled, controlled life is tested when she meets Will Newman (Cole Sprouse), a fellow patient who also has CF. Despite their instant connection, they must keep a safe distance between them because of their condition. Things intensify and temptation rises to throw caution to the wind and embrace their attraction. Richardson recently spoke about the movie in an interview with Cosmopolitan, explaining the message they hope to get across in the movie.

“I just watched the movie recently for the first time and I feel like you can see the fun we were having in the movie. Bringing joy and life to these characters, it just goes to show that these kids and people who have cystic fibrosis, they live their life anyway. One of my favorite lines in the movie is when my character says, ‘My whole life I’ve been living for my treatments instead of doing my treatments so that I could live.’ That affected me so much and I hope that it gets to people; it can be a very broad things, the message of even if you have something that’s holding you back and you have to do something, keep going and fight. You’re fighting it to live. You don’t have to hand over your whole soul to that thing, to that monster.”

Justin Baldoni directs from a script by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis. The cast also includes Moises Arias, Kimberly Hebert Gregory, Parminder Nagra, Claire Forlani, Emily Baldoni, Elena Satine, Gary Weeks and Sophia Bernard. Five Feet Apart is set to hit theaters on March 15. Be sure to check out the new trailer from the CBS Films YouTube channel below.

Octavia Spencer Turns Evil in New Blumhouse Thriller

Welcome to Ma‘s. From the producers of Get Out and Happy Death Day, Octavia Spencer stars in Ma, which is one of this summer’s big horror offerings. It will be in theaters May 31. The first trailer will be shown in theaters with Happy Death Day 2U as a special Valentine’s Day treat. But we have a first look for you here, along with the creep poster.

Everybody’s welcome at Ma‘s. But good luck getting home safe

Oscar winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.”

But as Ma‘s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma‘s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as a local dad, Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends.

From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of The Help and Get On Up, and blockbuster producer Jason Blum (Get OutHalloween, The Purge series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Spencer, one of the most powerful actors of her generation.

Ma is written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s Workaholics) and Taylor, is produced by Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Taylor, and by John Norris (executive producer, Get On Up), and is executive produced by Spencer, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, and Robin Fisichella. You can check out the trailer and poster direct from Blumhouse and Universal Pictures. This promises to be another hit for Blumhouse, who has made a name for themselves with cheap budget that blow out the box office. Blumhouse already has the biggest release of 2019 so far with Glass and they should keep that momentum up through the rest of the year, especially with a creepy movie like Ma coming in the next couple of months and Happy Death Day 2U in theaters now.

Tolkien Trailer Explores the True Origins of Middle-Earth & Lord of the Rings

Tolkien Trailer Explores the True Origins of Middle-Earth & Lord of the Rings

Ever wonder how Lord of the Rings was created? Where exactly did the idea for Middle-Earth come from? A new biopic explores the life and times behind the man that brought this iconic fantasy world to life. Today, we have the first trailer for Tolkien, which promises to be a nice companion piece to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.

Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author J.R.R. Tolkien as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.

Only In Theaters May 10, 2019, Tolkien was directed by Dome Karukoski with a script written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford. The expansive biopic was produced by Peter Chernin p.g.a., Jenno Topping p.g.a., David Ready p.g.a. and Kris Thykier p.g.a.

The ensemble cast is lead by Nicholas Hoult as J.R.R. Tolkien. He is joined by Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.

Tolkien has been a long time coming to the big screen. The project was first announced back in 2013, but production didn’t begin until four years later, with principle photography getting underway in 2017. The movie will not only explore Tolkien‘s personal life, but will also delve into the how, what and why of The Hobbit‘s inception and the true lore behind the Lord of the Rings origin. We’ll see how both his high school experiences and his terrifying participation in WWI shaped and formed this expansive and epic narrative that is still being studied and disected by professors to this day.

Lily Collins will star as Edith Bratt, Tolkien‘s longtime love interest who plays a very important role in shaping the future author. The story takes place in the early 20th Century, with period accurate sets, props and wardrobe. Fans of the author should walk away with a well rounded idea of who the man was and how he came to be.

Tolkien was bone in 1892 and passes away in 1973 at the age of 81. He didn’t live long enough to see the first animated movies based on Lord of the Rings. He’s best known as a writer, poet, philologist, and university professor. But he will be forever defined by his adventures with Frodo, Bilbo and Gandalf. Part of the biopic does traces his attempts to bring these books to the big screen in the 50s, but it wouldn’t be until 1977 that the first movie based on the works actually arrived in theaters. And from there, Peter Jackson turned the sci-fi fantasy tale into 6 epic movies that have won quite a few Oscars, including Best Picture for Return of the King.

You can take a look at Tolkien direct from Fox Searchlight. This sneak peek offers but a glimpse into the writer’s real world. But it opens the possibilities for something truly unique and special.

Imagine If Everyone Forgot the Beatles Except One Man

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. From Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis, Yesterday is a new musical comedy that stars Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon, and Ed Sheeran. Today, we have the first poster and trailer.

Jack is about to become a very big deal. From Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.

Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie, the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

Featuring new versions of The Beatles’ most beloved hits, Yesterday is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (Love Actually, About A Boy, the Bridget Jones series) alongside Matthew James Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew. Curtis and Boyle also produce. Nick Angel and Lee Brazier serve as executive producers.

The romantic comedy features Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon, Ed Sheeran in the leads, with the movie directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Richard Curtis. Producers are Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Bernie Bellew, Matthew James Wilkinson, Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle. Executive Producers are Nick Angel, Lee Brazier.

Yesterday is one of many musical comedies that takes on The Beatles long legacy in a fun and unique way. From The Beatles’ own Yellow Submarine animated movie to Robert Zemeckis’ I Want To Hold Your Hand and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band starring The Bee Gees and Peter Frampton, to the more recent Across the Universe, these songs have provided a backdrop for some pretty crazy stories. And Yesterday may be one of the most interesting. We have a look at the trailer and poster direct from Universal Pictures.

Frozen 2 Trailer Is Here, Anna & Elsa Return for New Adventure

Frozen 2 Trailer Is Here, Anna & Elsa Return for New Adventure

From the Academy Award-winning team, directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, and producer Peter Del Vecho, and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, and the music of Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2019.

Today, Disney delivers the first trailer and poster for Frozen 2. It has been almost 6 years since Elsa and Anna graced the big screen, turning the original song ‘Let It Go’ into a phenomenon that still rages to this day, getting parodied in many TV shows and movies. Frozen is one of the biggest original Disney animated movies ever made. And now, the adventure continues.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure hit theaters back in 2017. It was intended to be a short, opening in front of Disney•Pixar’s Coco, but filled with four new songs and running at almost a half an hour, it actually caused a backlash that saw many parents complaining about its length. It was eventually pulled from theaters, and instead aired as a Holiday special on ABC.

It was almost akin to the Star Wars Holiday Special. But 6 years is a long time to wait. Now, Disney is returning with a proper feature length adventure for this year’s Holiday season, which should dominate Thanksgiving until Star Wars 9 arrives around Christmas time. The 2013 smash hit was a monster at the box office, and it’s expected that Frozen 2 could be even bigger.

In this first look footage, we watch as Elsa (once again played by Idina Menzel) uses her special powers to galavant across a body of water. We even get to watch her freeze a wave, which she proceeds to climb. Also returning is her royal sister Anna, featuring the returning voice talents of Kristen Bell. Other memorable characters are also back for more fun, including Jonathan Groff as Kristoff and Josh Gad as Olaf, as they all peer out over a cliff, overlooking an autumn landscape.

While most of the returning cast is back, we’ll also be hearing from new co-stars Sterling K. Brown, who also has the horror thriller Us coming out next month, and Evan Rachel Wood, who just announced this past week that she’s gearing up to shoot season 3 of HBO’s hit series Westworld.

Returning to direct Frozen 2 are Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, with Lee recently taking over as Chief Creative Officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Fans will once again be transported to Arendelle, with all new songs coming from original contributors Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. Will they have another ‘Let It Go’ on their hands? One can only hope. Lee and Allison Schroeder, perhaps best known for her work on Hidden Figures, are writing the script. Peter Del Vecho is returning as producer.

Some didn’t believe Frozen would get a sequel, as Disney viewed the movie as a sacred thing. It was finally announced in March 2015, and now three years later, we finally get to see a glimpse of what it will look like, with the first footage arriving from Walt Disney Pictures. The original soared past $1.2 billion at the box office. And is still the highest grossing animated movie of all time. An avalanche of merchandise has followed, and there’s even a Broadway musical.

Demands for John Bolton’s Dismissal After Reports He Asked Pentagon for Options to Strike Iran

Demands for John Bolton’s Dismissal After Reports He Asked Pentagon for Options to Strike Iran

Reminding the world that he is, as one critic put it, “a reckless advocate of military force,” the Wall Street Journal revealed on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser John Bolton “asked the Pentagon to provide the White House with military options to strike Iran last year, generating concern at the Pentagon and State Department.”

“It definitely rattled people,” a former U.S. official said of the request, which Bolton supposedly made after militants aligned with Iran fired mortars into the diplomatic quarter of Baghdad, Iraq that contains the U.S. Embassy in early September. “People were shocked. It was mind-boggling how cavalier they were about hitting Iran.”

“The Pentagon complied with the National Security Council’s request to develop options for striking Iran,” the Journal reported, citing unnamed officials. “But it isn’t clear if the proposals were provided to the White House, whether Mr. Trump knew of the request, or whether serious plans for a U.S. strike against Iran took shape at that time.”

The Journal‘s report, which comes just days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered an “arrogant tirade” of a speech vilifying Iran, sparked immediate alarm among critics of the Trump administration’s biggest warmongers—who, over the past several months, have been accused of fomenting unrest in Iran and laying the groundwork for war.

Daniel W. Drezner, a professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, called the news “a reminder that when it comes to Iran, John Bolton and Mike Pompeo are batshit insane.”

Trita Parsi, founder of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), tweeted, “Make no mistake: Bolton is the greatest threat to the security of the United States!” Parsi, an expert on U.S.-Iranian relations and longtime critic of Bolton, called for his immediate ouster over the request detailed in Journal‘s report.

“This administration takes an expansive view of war authorities and is leaning into a confrontation with Iran at a time when there are numerous tripwires for conflict across the region,” NIAC president Jamal Abdi warned in a statement. “It is imperative that this Congress investigate Bolton’s request for war options and pass legislation placing additional legal and political constraints on the administration’s ability to start a new war of choice with Iran that could haunt America and the region for generations.”

In a series of moves that have elicited concern from members of Congress, political experts, other world leaders, and peace activists, since May the Trump administration has ditched the Iran nuclear deal—formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—and reimposed economic sanctions.

NIAC, in November, urged the new Congress that convened at the beginning of the year to challenge the administration’s hawkish moves and restore U.S. standing on the world stage by passing measures to block the sanctions re-imposed in August and November, and reverse Trump’s decision to breach the deal—which European and Iranian diplomats have been trying to salvage.

Iran continues to comply with the terms of JCPOA, according to the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). However, Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran’s nuclear chief, told state television on Sunday that “preliminary activities for designing modern 20 percent (enriched uranium) fuel have begun.” While Iran has maintained that it is not pursuing nuclear weapons, the nation would still have to withdraw from the deal if it resumed enrichment at the level.

As Iran signals that it is considering withdrawing from the JCPOA, the Journal report has critics worried that Bolton and Pompeo have the administration on a warpath—with Bolton, just last week, insisting without any evidence that Iranian leadership is committed to pursuing nuclear weapons. Some have compared that claim to former Vice President Dick Cheney’s infamous lie in 2002, to bolster support for the U.S. invasion, that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

“John Bolton and fellow Iran hawks believe they have two years left to collapse the Iran nuclear deal and trigger a disastrous war that the American people want no part of,” Abdi concluded. “We know that Bolton and other administration officials preferred an Iran war to negotiations prior to serving Trump. Now there is confirmation that they are still seeking out opportunities to fulfill their war agenda.”

As the Journal noted, “Alongside the requests in regards to Iran, the National Security Council asked the Pentagon to provide the White House with options to respond with strikes in Iraq and Syria as well.”

In Newly Uncovered Audio File, Mick Mulvaney Shreds Trump’s Border Wall As ‘Absurd and Childish’ (AUDIO)

In Newly Uncovered Audio File, Mick Mulvaney Shreds Trump’s Border Wall As ‘Absurd and Childish’ (AUDIO) |

 

Democrats aren’t the only ones who think that Trump’s wall idea is idiotic. His own acting chief of staff believes it’s absurd and childish. And unfortunately for him, he’s been caught on tape saying it.

Donald Trump is desperately trying to get funding for his stupid wall before the end of the year. But his own administration thinks it’s a bad idea.

On Friday CNN’s KFile uncovered an audio tape from 2015 of the incoming acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, talking about Trump’s border wall idea. Mulvaney called it “simplistic” and “absurd.”

“The fence doesn’t solve the problem. Is it necessary to have one, sure? Would it help? Sure. But to just say build the darn fence and have that be the end of an immigration discussion is absurd and almost childish for someone running for president to take that simplistic of [a] view,” Mulvaney said on the tape.

Earlier this week Trump agreed to sign the funding bill passed by Congress which did not fund his wall. But in typical Trump fashion, he threw everything into absolute chaos when he flipped and refused to sign the bill. His reversal followed a full 24 hours of Fox News shredding him for caving on the wall. This week was yet another example of the way that the wing-nuts at Fox are running the country.

Congress has until midnight on Friday to pass a bill that Trump will sign, or the government will shut down just in time for Christmas.
