Outer Banks Season 3 Trailer Released by Netflix

Get ready to have a good time, because the first trailer for Outer Banks Season 3 has officially arrived. On Thursday, Netflix released the first trailer for the highly-anticipated new batch of episodes, which are set to arrive on the streaming platform later this month. The hit drama series already excited fans earlier this week with a new poster for Season 3.

“The writers really like to keep us on our toes, and I think that creates performances that catch you in the moment … I’ve no idea what’s going on past what we’ve shot in Barbados,” series star Chase Stokes told EliteDaily in a previous interview. “I think a lot of loose ends are going to get tied up. A lot of questions will be answered. And per usual, these kids are going to get put through the wringer.”

What is Outer Banks about?

Outer Banks is a coming of age story that follows a tight-knit group of local teens (the ‘Pogues’) in the beach vacation destination of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. When a hurricane kills the power for the summer season, it sets off a chain of illicit events that force the friends to make life-altering decisions. The search for their ringleader’s missing father, forbidden romances, a high-stakes treasure hunt, and the escalating conflict between the Pogues and their rivals turn their summer into one filled with mystery and adventure they’ll never forget.

Outer Banks stars Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, Austin North, Charles Esten, Drew Starkey, and Carlacia Grant. The series is created by Jonas Pate, Josh Pate, and Shannon Burke, who will all be returning as showrunners and executive producers for Season 3. The series quickly and surprisingly found a place among Netflix’s weekly Top 10 function, with reports indicating that only Tiger King and ozark had outperformed the series at the time of its debut in 2020.

“They are intensely loyal to each other, and that’s a constant. It lays some track for going forward,” co-creator and executive producer Josh Tate teased of Season 3 in an interview with variety last year.

“No one’s made a good high school movie since” Superbad

Seth Rogen has good reason to be cocky about his place in Hollywood. He got his start on one of the most beloved high school television series of all time (freaks and geeks) and then co-wrote one of the most beloved high school movies of all time (Super bad). He’s got plenty of other accomplishments under his belt (including a turn in a Best Picture nominee), but he says a lot about the quality of those projects that he’s still asked about them to this day.

Referencing his Fabelmans co-star, Rogen tells People in a new interview, “What’s crazy is that Gabe LaBelle is like, 19 years old and his and his friends’ favorite movie is Super bad. So it never changed for some reason,” he says of the movie’s lasting legacy. Then he adds a bold claim: “No one’s made a good high school movie since then.”

Okay, okay, we know Seth Rogen is a comedy writer and an offhand comment shouldn’t be held as gospel. But let’s put the assertion to the test anyway. Has anyone made a good high school movie since then? Obviously, yes. A trickier question is, has anyone made a high school movie ace good since then? There are some strong contenders, like Dope, Edge Of Seventeen, lady birdor even To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Limiting the category to similarly raunchy, goofy comedies is an even narrower field. Easy-Aled by Super bad co-star Emma Stone, is one much-beloved example. Perhaps even more of a spiritual successor to Super bad is Olivia Wilde’s Booksmart. We’ll give him this, though: horny dirtball teenage boys have probably not had representation of that caliber since Rogen’s magnum opus.

The same can probably be said for the stoner outcasts in freaks and geeks, but don’t expect them to return any time soon. “I don’t think anyone would do it. It’s so rare that you do something in your career that is actually just viewed as good,” Rogen tells People. “I know enough now not to fuck with that, to just let it be good and not try to go revisit it. And just let it exist.” Sounds like it’s someone else’s turn to step up to the plate.



Did Dolly Parton Really Produce The ‘Buffy’ TV Show?

For years, there have been rumors that Dolly Parton was a secret producer on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series that became a massive genre hit in the late ’90s and early 2000s. Well, it’s no longer a mystery. While appearing on The Tonight Show, buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar confirmed to Jimmy Fallon that the iconic singer played a silent role in the show’s breakout success. Not only that, but Parton was a fan of the vampire-slaying series and its star, which Gellar was not prepared for at the time.

Via Gizmodo:

“Little known fact, the legend Dolly Parton was a producer,” Gellar revealed on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. “And you know, we never saw her. We’d get Christmas gifts in the beginning that would have our name and I would think, ‘She doesn’t know who I am.’ And then one day somebody asked her about it and she complimented the show and my performance. And I was like ‘Oh, I can die now. Dolly Parton knows who I am and thinks I’m good.’ Her partner was Sandy Gallin and they produced buffy.”

Of course, producing shows like buffy is just the kind of benevolent person that Dolly Parton loves to be. Case in point: The iconic singer helped put up money to develop a coronavirus vaccine and was heralded as a saint when it turned out she backed the Moderna vaccine that, along with Pfizer, helped turn the tide of the pandemic. Is there anything Dolly can’t do? We’d probably believe it if someone said she could levitate.

See Hollywood celebs who embraced Indian designs

Jennifer Aniston’s Indian look in a custom Manish Malhotra lehenga might have stunned many. The actor was seen wearing the white and silver embellished lehenga in the trailer of Murder Mystery 2 in which she stars alongside Adam Sandler.

Many praised the look as the actor looked ravishing in the Indian design with her hair tied up in a messy bun while Adam Sandler wore a sherwani. However, Jennifer Aniston is not the only Hollywood star to don an Indian designer.

Here is a list of Hollywood celebrities who have rocked Indian labels:

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez has picked Indian designers multiple times, including in 2013, when she wore a Bibhu Mohapatra design on the red carpet at an event. She wore a white and green printed tube dress with a black waist belt. She also has a thing for Indian bags, as she was seen holding a Suneet Varma clutch in 2010.

Coldplay’s Hymn for the Weekend became widely popular in India not just because it was shot entirely in India but also because it starred Sonam Kapoor and Beyonce. Beyonce, in the song, plays a Bollywood actor and wore an elaborate embroidered and sequined outfit created by Indian designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla.

Sara Jessica Parker

Sara Jessica Parker was spotted in a Falguni and Shane Peacock lehenga with flowers as her hair accessories in an episode in the revival season of Sex and the City. Her look was, however, criticized for being poorly done.

Katy Perry chose a fancy merry-go-round outfit by Manish Arora during MTV Europe music awards in 2008. She wore a Manish Arora design again, soon after he took over as the creative director of Paco Rabanne.

Megan Thee Stallion

Megan Thee Stallion made a stunning appearance at Oscars 2022 dressed in a gown by Gaurav Gupta. The gown was inspired by a mystical sea creature that transports the red carpet into a fantasy realm. It was encrusted with crystals-the strapless gown features a side cutout at the torso, a leg-baring slit, and a skirt that flows out in larger than life fins that are engineered with the brand’s indigenous sculpting.

Sarah Michelle Gellar confirms Dolly Parton ‘Buffy’ rumor

Sarah Michelle Gellar finally confirmed the rumor that Dolly Parton was a producer on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

While appearing on “The Tonight Show,” Gellar, 45, told the world that the suspicions were true.

“Little-known fact: The legend, Dolly Parton, was a producer,” Gellar told Jimmy Fallon, 48.

Parton, 77, was an uncredited producer on the hit sci-fi series that ran for seven seasons from 1997 to 2003 — but the cast never got to see her.

“We never saw her. We’d get Christmas gifts in the beginning that would have her name, and I would think, ‘She doesn’t know who I am,’” Gellar, who played the show’s titular character, Buffy Summers, shared.

But the “9 to 5” singer did, in fact, know who she was.

“Then one day, someone asked her about it, and she complimented the show and my performance,” Gellar continued. “And I was like, ‘Oh, I can die now. Dolly Parton knows who I am and thinks I’m good.’”

The Post revealed Parton’s side gig back in 2020, though it was never confirmed by anyone in the show’s cast at that point.

Parton and the late Sandy Gallin co-founded Sandollar Productions in 1986, which produced “Buffy” and the “Angel” spinoff series, as well as the original film version of “Buffy.”

The ’90s show was based on the 1993 film of the same name, which starred Kristy Swanson.

Gellar recently shared that though she’s “very proud of the show,” she would not be interested in a “Buffy” reboot.



Why Netflix and Wit Studio’s new shorts are so controversial

Netflix and Wit Studio, the animation production company behind Spy x Family and Attack on Titan, have released a new short film. Titled “The Dog & The Boy,” the short follows a boy who discovers a robotic dog before they’re separated by a great tragedy. It’s emotional and cute, but the most noteworthy thing about this short isn’t the storyline — it’s the fact that the backgrounds were generated by artificial intelligence.

The Netflix Japan tweet about the short explains that this method is “an experimental effort to help the anime industry, which has a labor shortage.” A blog post on the Netflix Japan site goes into more detail about the process.

Using AI to create art has become a very controversial topic in the past few months. With tools like DALL-E, Midjourney, and Free AI Art Generator rising in popularity over the past year, many artists have spoken out about how these programs utilize their art without consent and how their specific art styles can be replicated with just a string of words typed into one of these programs. Tea #SupportHumanArtists movement started to call attention to the ethical issues that come with AI usage.

On Twitter, many users have called out Netflix and WIT Studio for this short film and for the possibility of using AI tools to replace background artists. The animation industry in Japan, in particular, already faces a lot of issues, chief among them the fact that many animators are underpaid.

It stars Brendan Fraser in an Oscar-nominated performance. But this film’s a shocker – The Irish Times

The Whale

Director: Darren Aronofsky

Certification: 16

Starring: Brendan Fraser, Sadie Sink, Ty Simpkins, Hong Chau, Samantha Morton, Sathya Sridharan

Running Time: 1 hr 56 mins

It is not uncommon for critics to worry that a film looks too much like a theater piece. Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin and Sarah Polley’s Women Talking, current nominees for best picture at the Oscars, have had that accusation gently levered in their direction. They can take it.

That nagging whiff is, however, impossible to shake off throughout Darren Aronofsky’s largely dreadful translation (can we allow even that noun?) of Samuel D Hunter’s play about a bereaved English teacher eating himself to death.

Never mind that the action barely escapes one room. You could say the same of a dozen cinematic classics. The worry is that the film deals in the worst, most jaded conventions of bourgeois middlebrow dinner theater from the 1950s. In moments of introspection, characters actually walk “downstage” to puzzle at an imagined dress circle. When they go out to the porch, one can imagine the lights dimming on the main set and coming up on a hitherto unnoticed bit of carpentry abutting the wings. No sooner have we settled back down after our gin and tonic at the interval than a new character is announcing the beginning of act two by knocking at the front door. Will it be Lady Peggy Ashcroft? No, it’s Samantha Morton.

None of this hokey stagecraft would much matter if the script were not draped in such mawkish sentiment and such cheap gotcha reveals. Yet the thing does begin well enough. We first hear Brendan Fraser’s mellifluous voice as Charlie, reclusive academic, addresses a class of students in an online seminar with his webcam off. (First produced in 2012, the play proves accidentally appropriate for a post-lockdown era.) They are not aware of what we soon learn. Now weighing in at 43 stone, Charlie has eaten himself into a state of terminally ill immobility. Initially, a stroppy nurse, played with Oscar-nominated vim by Hong Chau, proves his only source of human contact, but, this being a drama mired in mid-century theatrical convention, we know others will soon come calling. Sadie Sink easily masters a one-note strop as his estranged daughter. Ty Simpkins is almost defeated by the absurd role of a visiting Christian missionary just yearning to spice up the closing action with conveniently appropriate secrets of his own.

If you thought no writer dealing with such material would dare hang Charlie’s teaching around something so on-the-nose as Moby Dick then I have not yet conveyed quite how cacophonous are the machine’s clunks. Every now and then we do get a moment of properly cinematic unease, but even those successes are tainted by the film’s unseemly disgust at Charlie’s body. Ranking up the droning minor chords on Rob Simonsen’s orchestral score as the protagonist tucks into another pizza succeeds in making something mortally sinister of an everyday act. Yet that only heightens the sense that The Whale – alert to every crease of Fraser’s simulated fat – is dealing in incongruously maudlin body horror. Cronenberg for saps. Or do we just mean Aronofsky for saps? The director of shockers such as Requiem for a Dream and Mother! has had his mainstream moments, but he has never before been quite so at home to tawdry soap opera.

Ever since the premiere at Venice, Fraser’s performance has been touted as the film’s saving grace. After a few years in the near wilderness, the sometime matinee idol does indeed bring gentle desperation to dialogue that demands to be spoken with heart thumping on sleeve. His pleading is not just to the characters around him but to a wider audience largely on the actor’s side. Sadly, not even someone so warm as Fraser can win us over to the most jaw-droppingly daft final shot in recent cinema. I have been fanning my armpits ever since a first viewing.

The Whale is in cinemas from Friday, February 3rd


Pam Anderson Channels ‘Baywatch’ Swimsuit For ‘Pamela, A Love Story’ Netflix Premiere

Pamela Anderson gave a nod to the iconic swimsuit that helped launch her career at the premiere of her new Netflix documentary Pamela, A Love Story.

The 55-year-old sex symbol and newly-minted author gave a fiery red Naeem Khan gown to the event, evoking the bouncy one-piece swimsuit associated with the character she played on Baywatch, lifeguard CJ Parker.

Christian Louboutin sandals, Cicada diamond earrings and a Delfina Delettrez ring rounded out the ensemble, the New York Post notes.

“Pamela Anderson is ready to tell her story in a new documentary,” reads a statement from Netflix about the new doc, which is streaming now.

“The film, which has been in the making for several years, will feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey. In her own words, through personal video and diaries. Pamela Anderson shares the story of her rise to fame, rocky romances and infamous sex tape scandal.”

Anderson has repeatedly blasted Hulu’s Pam & Tommy, the 2022 docudrama series depicting her infamous sex tape scandal and turbulent marriage with Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.

Anderson has slammed the series and its creators, who she has said did not consult her at all. During a recent interview with Variety, Anderson called the Pam & Tommy creators “assholes” and said they “owe me a public apology.”

And during a subsequent interview with Howard Stern, Anderson said she felt like she had been “run over” after hearing about the show.

“I remember seeing this advert for Pam & Tommy and was like, what? No one called me. I’m still alive. No one asked me. It’s nothing to do with me,” she told Stern.

“I felt kinda run over by that one. I don’t think they portrayed Tommy or I very accurately. I haven’t seen it, but I’ve heard from people that it’s a very shallow representation of us. I wish they would’ve called.”

Anderson isn’t just opening up in the doc, but also in her new memoir Love, Pamela. Learn more about the book and see exclusive photos from Maxim’s January/February issue here.

Salma Hayek Pinault Says One ‘Magic Mike’ Lap Dance ‘Nearly Killed’ Her

Magic Mike’s Last Dance was almost Salma Hayek Pinault‘s last dance, apparently. While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!Hayek Pinault shared that Vanity Fair‘s February cover star, Channing Tatum, “nearly killed” her while filming an ambitious lap dance for the third and final film in the series.

jimmy kimmel shared a clip from Magic Mike’s Last Dance, which hits theaters on February 10, in which Hayek Pinault’s Maxandra Mendoza receives a five-minute lap dance from Tatum’s titular Mike, or as Kimmel cheekily put it, Mike’s “Channing all over your Tatum.” Hayek Pinault described the choreography for the film as “challenging and technical” and claimed that the dangerous lap dance did not make it into the final cut of the movie. “There’s one part that’s not in it where I’m upside down, and my legs had to be somewhere. But upside down, one loses sense of direction, and I didn’t do what I was supposed to do, so in the rehearsal, I went like, head down—almost hit my head,” she said.

Matters were made worse because Hayek Pinault couldn’t remember whether or not she was wearing underwear during the scene. “[Tatum] held on to my pants, but I was really concerned because my pants were going away, and I couldn’t remember if I had underwear or not in this moment,” she said. “So instead of putting my hands to protect my head, I just held on to the pants. He’s like, ‘Put your hands up,’ and I’m like, ‘No, no, no.’”

Ultimately, Hayek Pinault survived the incident, which Tatum apparently didn’t even was realize as dangerous as it was. “Everybody came in, and kind of took me away from [Tatum], and he said, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ I said, ‘What’s wrong with me? You nearly killed me!’”

Hayek Pinault said that before starring in Magic Mike’s Last Dance she had never really received a male lap dance before: “If you’re going to start somewhere, why not Channing?” She noted that after spending a career playing exotic dancers in films like From Dusk Till Dawn and Dogma, it was nice to have the tables turned. “You know what? I deserve it,” she said. “I had to play the stripper in so many movies before, and now I get to sit down and enjoy.”
