In lieu of a “What I’m Reading and Thinking About This Week” post, I opted for the easier and lighter movie news post. The new puppy has kept us up at night all week and I’m too tired and sad about the current state of the world to get any heavier. Here’s some movie stuff:
1. The Martian Trailer
I probably should get around to reading the book, right? Anyway, this stars Matt Damon and is based on the breakout book of the same name. It’s directed by Ridley Scott, so let’s hope it’s less of a mess than Prometheus (NEVER FORGET).
2. Chris Hemsworth cast in female Ghostbusters
He’s going to play the receptionist, which is great. I’m still legitimately excited for this reboot. (Twitter)
3. The Overnight Trailer (Red Band)
The movie stars my secret husband Adam Scott, as well as Taylor Schilling and Jason Schwartzman. It’s getting good buzz and looks relatively funny. It’s about a couple who has a dinner party with friends that gets…weird.
4. Pitch Perfect 3 is happening
Not that it’s surprising, but kind of disappointing, because it’s just not the same. I wonder how racist this one will be? Probably the most interesting thing to watch here will be how contract negotiations go for its biggest stars. But that isn’t actually that interesting. (THR)
5. Mistress America Trailer
Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach re-team with this one, and I can’t wait.
