New Revenge Trailer Wages War Against Chauvinist Male Trolls

A new Revenge trailer is here to take on male commenters who have expressed their distaste over the upcoming thriller. When Neon released the first trailer for Revenge, which centers on a female lead character who ends up on a bloody path of vengeance, many male commenters, or commentators who at least claimed to be male, voiced their distaste for the strong, feminist themes in the movie and, in general, female-driven movies. Now, Neon has released a brand new trailer featuring actual comments made about the movie.

The trailer features choice bits of footage from the movie, showcasing star Matilda Lutz (Rings) in full-on, badass revenge mode. The Revenge footage is interrupted with screenshots of actual comments from YouTube, which are, to say the least, not exactly into what this movie has to sell. “Why are women always so bad at being cool? Really?” questions one commenter. Another suggests that this is actually “Feminazi: The Movie,” while another simply states that “Women belong in the kitchen.” Despite these comments, the trailer is structured in such a way that it shows Lutz’s character overcoming the adversity she is facing in order to get the vengeance she craves.

In Revenge, Jen (Matilda Lutz) is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly, and viciously, intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and reemerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge. The movie blurs the lines between revenge and survival and is described as a feminist subversion of the revenge/thriller genre.

The movie comes from first time director Coralie Fargeat. Despite the negative comments from YouTubers, Revenge looks to be doing quite well for itself. The movie had a very successful run on the festival circuit, which kicked off at the Toronto Film Festival last year. So far, the movie has been met with praise from critics, currently boasting a 91 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with just two negative reviews to its name. While audiences have yet to vote with their wallets at the box office, it’s clear that the film community seems to be embracing Revenge, even if some male commenters aren’t having it.

Hollywood has been doing a lot of gender-swapping with movies in recent years and female-driven movies have become increasingly popular, given the incredible success of movies like Wonder Woman. Many audience members crave diversity in general, as evidenced by the staggering success of Black Panther and Hollywood goes where the money is. So if there’s money to be made with female-driven movies that feature feminist points of view, they’re going to continue to happen. Revenge, which makes its way to theaters on May 11, is not going to be the last of its kind. And anyone who’s seen the original 1978 cult classic I Spit on Your Grave know it’s not the first by a long shot either. Be sure to check out the new trailer for the movie featuring some of these comments, courtesy of the Neon YouTube channel, for yourself below.

Together Forever: Lala Kent’s Boyfriend Randall Emmett Say’s He’ll Be With Her “Forever” – The Real Housewives

 

Life is lovely for Lala Kent in La La Land!

Vanderpump Rules star, Lala Kent, is in love with her film producer boyfriend, Randall Emmett. According to US Weekly, Randall loves Lala so much that he says they are going to be together forever. At the premiere of the new film “Gotti” which Randall produced, he said, “Listen, I love Lala and I’m going to be with her always and forever. So that’s for the stars to align when they align.” Recently fellow Pump Rules co-stars, Birttany Cartwright and Jax Taylor, announced their engagement. It sounds like marriage is in the future for Lala and Randall, too!

A lot of fans had speculated if the pair were already married, because in the obituary for Lala’s father her last name was listed as ‘Emmett’ which is her boyfriend’s last name. Is marriage in their future? Lala said, “That’s a question for him. I don’t know. I’m so happy.” Lala has been more private about their relationship, in comparison to her co-stars. She does refer to him as “my man” in the last couple of seasons, though. in recent seasons. These two definitely won’t be filming a reality show about their relationship. Lala explained, “Never! You know, I like my relationship a lot. So, I’m gonna protect it. This isn’t this for the public. This is just for us to enjoy the two of us and not have outside influences.”

Randall agreed, “You know, she’s the star. I want her to always be the star. I’m not good here. Let her be the star, and I’ll always be behind the scenes.” Lala is set to star in an upcoming sorority slasher film, “The Row.” We’ll still be seeing her on Pump Rules – which is set to air again this year. Lala said what you see is what you get with her on the hit Bravo show. Lala summed up, “It’s like, that’s what I signed up for, that people would come into my world and see what I do. So, whether you like it or don’t like it, it’s Lala-Land. I think it’s cool.” Pump Rules will always be entertaining. She revealed, “Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more real on Vanderpump, we come through with season 7 and it’s going to be crazy, just like always.”

I think that Lala and Randall are a cute couple. I completely understand why they don’t want to film their personal lives. Some things are meant to be private. I think that relationships are special just for you and your significant other. Lala seems really happy, so I’m happy for her! I can’t wait to watch the sorority slasher film she’s starring in!

Should Lala and Randall get married? Thoughts on Pump Rules? Sound off below!

RHONY: Luann De Lesseps Sag Harbor Summer Home Up For Sale – The Real Housewives

RHONY: Luann De Lesseps Sag Harbor Summer Home Up For Sale – The Real Housewives

 

If you want to live like a Countess, now you can!

All you need is $6.25 million dollars.

The Real Housewives of New York star, Luann de Lesseps is selling her Sag Harbor summer home. Luann sings, “Money can’t buy you class,” but it can buy you her beautiful estate.

According to Behind The Hedges, Luann has listed her Sag Harbor Greek revival home. She had purchased the property in 2013 for $2.437 million and did a lot of remodeling and renovations. Now it is worth even more money. The home is shown on the RHONY, as the stars of the show are always in the Hamptons, Sag Harbor and Montauk in the summer. The property is a gorgeous waterfront home on Sag Harbor Cove. It’s on the water with a dock, deck and a dining pergola. It features four bedrooms and four baths. It even has “a winterized studio on the property with a full bath.”

The asking price is $6.25 million dollars.

I’m shocked Luann wants to sell her summer home, it’s so beautiful. Perhaps there are too many memories from spending time there with her ex-husband, Tom D’Agostino? On the show you could tell her face lit up every time she escaped to the property from the city. I’m a lover of homes on waterfront properties. I grew up out in the country in the Midwest, and my house back home is on a lake. Plus my family cabin is on another lake. I’m sure Luann will invest in another summer home on the water. A lot of the New York City ‘Real Housewives’ have summer houses in the Hamptons and Sag Harbor. Bravo honcho, Andy Cohen, has a home in Sag Harbor, too. Perhaps Luann’s going to start flipping homes like fellow co-star, Bethenny Frankel? We’ll have to stay tuned, loves!
