Bohemian Rhapsody, an aggressive, aggrandizing, and more than a little silly and factually fluid look at the life and times of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, will appeal primarily to those who see the likes of Rock of Ages, Bat Out of Hell, or the band’s own We Will Rock You as the artistic height of musical theatre.
Lazy Friday News is a weekly round-up of stories from across the spectrum of entertainment, or whatever happens to tickle my funny bone. This week: Zack Snyder has taken Superman’s underwear right off in Man of Steel; Waterworld might have been awful, but we may see it again; vegetables stand in for the new RoboCop; two past X-Men stars are coming back in X-Men: Days of Future Past; and the good and bad news about film piracy.
A weekly round-up of news stories on the comings and goings of the entertainment world. This week: Robert Downey Jr. may be cast as the vampire Lestat, Superman is being chopped up in the courts, St. Elmo’s Fire is coming to television, and Bryan Singer moves closer to rebooting Battlestar Galactica.
Out this week, forget about Tom Cruise‘s personal life and check him out in the World War II thriller, Valkyrie. Also available, Kevin James stars in Paul Blart: Mall Cop, there’s the campy horror remake My Bloody Valentine 3D, and best of all I take a look at season one of HBO’s vampire series, True Blood.
Mr. Tom Cruise himself is in town, and as of right now these pictures from MuchMusic are the closest I’m going to get to him.
I don’t have a man crush on him or anything (that’s reserved for Ryan Reynolds only. Sorry, Tom), but let me just say it: it’s Tom F’ing Cruise. Top Gun, Minority Report, Mission: Impossible. Cocktail for God’s sake. And he’s married to Katie Holmes.
