How had i never seen... Enter the Dragon

"A action movie classic" - Jaragon

"Honestly, I saw Kentucky Fried Movie -- which ends with a long parody of this film -- about 5-10 years before I got around to seeing Enter the Dragon itself. I remember so much more about [the former]". -James

Would you rather?

Lee Pace is not one of your choices today because who would want to be so blue (figurative) while getting blue (literal) for Captain Marvel duties. Nevertheless we wanted to share his Instagram pic. (This is how you promote your latest movie? Cheer up, Lee!) Okay, that said, it's time for our weekly hanging out with celebrities fantasy poll.

Would you rather

... eat some bbq ribs with Charlize Theron?
... have dinner in London with Vin Diesel and Sir Michael Caine?
... nap-dream with Liev Schreiber and pup?
... stop and smell the flowers with Richard E Grant? 
... foster puppies with Hilary Swank? 
... do a bachelorette weekend with Dakota Fanning? 
... wound a stuntman with Salma Hayek? 

Pictures are after the jump to help you decide...

Netflix in September: Black Panther, Breakfast Club, Mr Sunshine

Time to play Streaming Roulette. Each month, to survey new streaming titles we freeze frame the films at random places with the scroll bar and whatever comes up first, that's what we share!

Ready? Let's get right to it...

-God I loved this house.
-Me too.

The Keeping Hours (2017)
Hmmm. Carrie Coon (♥︎) and Lee Pace (♥︎) in a supernatural haunted house movie -- how have we not heard of this one? *does quick google search* ah, no theatrical release, that's how. Should we watch?

Remember "Miss Pettigrew"?

by Nathaniel R

Remember Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day? It opened 10 years ago on this very day starring newly crowned (again) Best Actress Frances McDormand and Amy Adams. All I remember about it actually is Shirley Henderson's high pitched voice and Amy Adams flouncing around before breaking my heart by singing a duet with the scrumptious Lee Pace...

Hans Linkin' Andersen

The Undefeated an amazing longread about the careers of several non-household name black actors from 1990s television series
Coming Soon Ansel Elgort in talks to play fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen in an original screen musical composed by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked). The huge success of La La Land and Greatest Showman is already taking effect which is nice because we were worried it wouldn't.
/Film Kristen Wiig in talks to play the villain Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2. Looooove this idea

MNPP Armie Hammer getting his chest waxed. Nooooo
The Guardian Casting for Quentin Tarantino's Charles Manson movie has begun. Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are officially returning to the director's filmography. Margot Robbie might be joining them. 
Coming Soon Have any of you read the Witchers series of fantasy books? It's being adapted to Netflix series with several characters confirmed
NPR profiles the three awesome Octogenarians up for Oscar this year: James Ivory, Agnes Varda, and Christopher Plummer
TFE ...and in case you missed it, we just interviewed James Ivory
Variety Chris Hemsworth may star in a Men in Black spinoff because no franchises die anymore
Into Film inspired by Lady Bird, a list of 10 other great debut films by female directors.

Stage (Pssst. Tony Season is almost upon us)
• W Magazine Lee Pace sorta comes out... in that tortured 'I won't say it, but I'm saying it' Jodie Foster kinda way in this interview about taking on the Joe Pitt role in the revival of Angels in America
• Theater Mania Harry Connick Jr is now in rehearsals for the debut of a new musical based on Best Picture winner The Sting. It's going to premiere at New Jersey's Papermill Playhouse (which is a great place to see shows)
Show-Score A list of all the current NYC stage shows offering lottery tickets (i.e. cheap seats for lucky winners) not that I want to give myself competition as I'm already losing Angels in America and Frozen daily. But these lotteries do actually send people to shows every single  day who couldn't afford it otherwise. I only ever enter sporadically (if I remember / am dying to see a show / friends visiting NYC etc) and I've won thrice over the years and seen West Side Story, Wicked, and Kinky Boots quite cheaply. Though I suspect it's harder to win now that all the lotteries are online instead of in person (i.e. less commitment to enter so way more competition).

Exit Video
Christine Baranski talks about filming Mamma Mia 2 and does a really bad Cher impression!
