I assume James Bond kills himself in the latest film because the theme song that they hired Billie Eillish to produce is so depressing. I mean this is great for Billie, she just turned 18 which means she was 4 years old when Casino Royale came out, which was the first instalment of Daniel Craig as Bond, and No Time To Die will be his last. Before he is replaced by someone more inclusive because its 2020. Speaking of 2020, do we even need another James Bond movie? Shouldn’t we just go back and re-watch the old ones. Let’s kill off Bond along with Daniel Craig while this death inducing song plays in the background..
So here is the new theme song, which sounds a lot like Lana Del Rey but I guess thats just Billie’s angle. Nothing will beat Adele’s Skyfall – they still play that shit everywhere.
So we all saw the new Harley Quinn movie Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn totally bomb at the box office, but that isn’t stopping Warner Brothers from throwing Margot Robbie into the same role in the new “The Suicide Squad” movie.
Margot and the team, including Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis and Jai Courtney started filming this week in Panama City. Idris Elba and John Cena were also seen on set in Panama. It’s all very confusing for someone who isn’t in the DC gang, I haven’t seen the original Suicide Squad movie where Jared Leto debuted his “Joker” but it looks like Margot is destined to fully become Harley Quinn now until the day she dies. According to IMDB, Robbie has signed on for this sequel AND another unnamed Joker/Harley Quinn movie with Leto.
So Margot Robbie became Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, and then Birds of Prey, and now The Suicide Squad, and then the unnamed project. I can’t wait to see Margot Robbie at 80 years old in some tight black and red latex bodysuits, running around the old folks home. Who’s writing the screenplay for “The Assisted Suicide Squad” that features the stars in their old age, begging to die – because they are going to keep making these movies for the next hundred years.
Nasal plugs, K-Y Jelly, yellowing dental veneers - the key items scattered on set of the Academy Award-nominated film Vice sound more like what you'd find in a nursing home medicine cabinet than beauty products. And yet, these are just a few of many things the movie's makeup team used to transform a star-studded cast into rising politicians.
More specifically, Christian Bale looked nearly unrecognizable as former VP Dick Cheney, as did Amy Adams as his public image-minded wife Lynne, Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush, and Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld. "We needed to create over 75 'likeness' makeups of iconic characters across five decades within a 50-day shooting schedule - these products were indispensable," hair and makeup department lead Kate Biscoe told POPSUGAR.
"Throughout each decade, it was evident that Washington DC was dominated by very clean-cut men. No one stood out and you certainly didn't get ahead in DC by looking like an individual."
Creating that semblance of real people became a balancing act of fact versus fiction. "Throughout each decade, it was evident that Washington DC was dominated by very clean-cut men," she said. "No one stood out and you certainly didn't get ahead in DC by looking like an individual. I really wanted to juxtapose that 'cookie-cutter-ness' and the results of war in other parts of the world. So as clean and safe the DC look was, we went equally as dirty, sweaty, and bloody for all of the war scenes." Greg Cannom, the award-winning makeup designer behind Bale's transformation, added: "You can't get it exactly right, so at some point you just have to stop looking at the pictures and use your imagination to pull it off."
And pull it off, they did: the team's work in Vice was just nominated for an Oscar in the Best Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling category. Ahead, they're spilling all the behind-the-scenes beauty secrets, which - like most things kept behind closed doors in politics - are pretty damn juicy.
