John David Washington - Tenet

*Christopher Nolan’s fans in Los Angeles who are apprehensive about visiting indoor cinemas (when they reopen) amid the COVID-19 pandemic will now have the option of seeing “Tenet” at drive-in theaters

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. previously said the $200 million espionage epic wouldn’t play in markets where indoor moviegoing is still prohibited, such as Los Angeles and New York City. However, with news that indoor cinemas in Orange County can now reopen, the studio is giving fans on the West Coast what they want. 

By Friday, “Tenet” will be playing in five drive-ins in the greater Los Angeles area, as well as outdoor venues in Orange County, San Diego and the Bay Area, per THR.

The film was originally slated to open on July 17. Then it was pushed to July 31 due to movie theater closures. Warner Bros. delayed the film again until Aug. 12. Then word came that the film had been pushed indefinitely.

“Our goals throughout this process have been to ensure the highest odds of success for our films while also being ready to support our theater partners with new content as soon as they could safely reopen,” Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement The Hollywood Reporter.

“We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that,” he said.

“Tenet” stars John David Washington and Robert Pattinson as two agents trained to stop World War III. The rest of the plot is on the low-low, but Nolan has described the movie as “an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage.”

“We’re jumping off from the point of view of an espionage film, but we’re going to a number of different places,” Nolan told Entertainment Weekly in December. “We’re crossing a few different genres in a hopefully exciting and fresh way. [Producer] Emma [Thomas] and I have put together a lot of large-scale productions, but this is certainly the biggest in terms of international reach.”

He added, “We shot in seven countries, all over the place, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made.”

The “Inception” director also called Washington “very much the hero” of the film.

“He’s a massively talented actor and physically gifted,” he added. “He’s an athlete and pretty hard for anybody to keep up with, including the different vehicles we shot him from — cars and helicopters. This guy moves.”

Stephen Challenges President Barack Obama To A Game Of “Wastepaper Basketball” – The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (Nov 24, 2020)

*President Barack Obama was in full “That’s what I do”-style trash talk mode when Stephen Colbert challenged him to a game of “wastepaper basketball” during his appearance Wednesday on “The Late Show.”

Colbert waited until Part 3 of the interview to ask #44 if he wanted to play, then had the nerve to ask Obama if he needed to warm up with some practice shots.

“I Don’t Need Practice Shots. Against You?,” Obama responded. When Colbert suggested they wager on the outcome, with Obama having to mention the host in his next book if he loses, Obama asked, “Well what if I win?”

“What do you want?” Colbert asked.

Obama shrugged off the whole prospect, saying, “Nobody’s gonna read your book anyway.” He then added, “It doesn’t matter, I’m not gonna lose.”

Colbert said he would donate to Obama’s library if he loses. And with that, the game commenced.

Obama was “crushed” by Colbert, 8 to zero.

“That’s what I do!” Colbert yelled mid-thrashing.

*Scotland aims to end ‘period poverty’ by becoming the first country to offer free menstrual products in public facilities. 

On Tuesday, the Scottish Parliament voted unanimously in favor of the Period Products bill, CNN reports. Women across Scotland will now have universal access to products such as tampons and pads in public buildings, including schools and universities. 

“The campaign has been backed by a wide coalition, including trades unions, women’s organisations and charities,” Monica Lennon, the lawmaker who introduced the bill last year, said ahead of the vote. “Scotland will not be the last country to make period poverty history.”

After the vote, Lennon said the decision was “a signal to the world that free universal access to period products can be achieved.”

Here;s more from CNN:

The bill’s accompanying financial memorandum estimates it could cost around £8.7 million a year by 2022, depending on the number of women who will take advantage of the free products.

The new law was praised by a number of equality and women’s rights groups as well as politicians from across the parties represented in the Scottish Parliament.

“Proud to vote for this groundbreaking legislation, making Scotland the first country in the world to provide free period products for all who need them. An important policy for women and girls,” Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on her official Twitter page after the vote.

Local authorities and education providers across Scottland will be required to ensure that menstrual products are available for free. 

Last year, England and New Zealand launched initiatives to provide free sanitary products in schools.
