Updates from ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ ‘She-Hulk,’ and ‘Reservation Dogs’


Today is a trailer bonanza with new looks at Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, Emily the Criminal, Reservation Dogs, and more. Plus, Charlie Puth gets real about boy love, Emma Corrin makes history, and Batman’s nips are up for sale.

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin

The Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin trailer is here and it’s awesomely creepy. Also, shirtless Smurfs for, reasons?

Synopsis: Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present-day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.

Emma Corrin

Actor Emma Corrin is Vogue magazine’s latest cover star, making history as the first nonbinary person to ever grace the front of the iconic publication.

“In my mind, gender just isn’t something that feels fixed,” Corrin told Vogue, “and I don’t know if it ever will be; There might always be some fluidity there for me.”

They also elaborated on their sexuality. “I like people,” they explained.

Lynda Carter

Reminding us yet again why she is forever our Wonder Woman Lynda Carter forcefully clapped back on those spouting anti-trans rhetoric. (Cough, Bette Midler and Macy Gray, cough)

“I cannot think of anything that helps women’s rights less than pinning the blame on trans women. They face so much violence and scrutiny as is. Leave them alone and focus on the real war on women. It’s happening in the courts and legislatures around this country,” she tweeted.

Mai Martin

Mae Martin also weighed in on Bette Midler’s recent tweets that included transphobic language. The nonbinary Canadian comic had a gentler approach in their Instagram story.

“I just want to say this in case this is useful to you if you have people in your own life – older feminist icons even – who are perplexed and threatened by inclusive language,” they began. “Those figures, like Better Midler, fought hard for women’s rights and they’re upset when, in the context of reproductive rights, they read phrases like ‘people with uteruses.'”

“I am trans/non-binary, not a woman. I am medically and culturally transitioning and so ‘woman’ is not an accurate word to use when describing me,” they explained. “The use of inclusive language when talking about abortion rights meant that I – with all my shared experience and shared threat of pregnancy as I also sleep with cis men – can participate and be acknowledged in the conversation and fight alongside women.”

“I hope that people like Bette continue to learn and evolve,” they added. “I really want to be able to enjoy Hocus Pocus 2which I’ve been waiting for, for about twenty years, feeling safe in the knowledge that my idol is on the side of personhood and freedom and unity, and would include me in that fight.”

“The best part of life is continuing to learn and grow. And we have to try to rise above and have open arms and be full of love and respect,” Martin concluded.

BTS’s Jungkook & Charlie Puth

Ever since its June 24 release, the video for BTS’s Jungkook and Charlie Puth’s collab “Left and Right” has been blowing up (clocking in at more than 82 million views on YouTube as of this writing) and fueling speculation that the video depicts a romance between the two. Welp, Puth put those rumors to rest by seemingly confirming that, yes, the video is super gay. The singer posted a screenshot of the commentary on his Instagram story.

Batman’s Nipples

Have you always dreamed of getting your hands on the Caped Crusader’s nips? Good news: The infamous Batman nipple suit from Joel Schumacher’s 1997 film Batman & Robin is up for auction, reports Variety. What will this piece of iconic movie nostalgia put you back? The opening bid is set for $40,000.

She-Hulk

While the She-Hulk premiere is still a little over a month away we got a sneak peek at out actor Jameela Jamil’s new MCU villain, Titania, and Tatiana Maslany as Ginger Gonzaga in costume and in… a courtroom? This makes sense, as it’s the first courtroom show set in the MCU.

She-Hulk premieres August 17 on Disney+.

Orlando Bloom

Amsterdam

Swifties take note: The Amsterdam trailer is here.

Synopsis: Set in the ’30s, the new drama from David O. Russell follows three friends who witnessed a murder, become suspects themselves, and uncover one of the most outrageous plots in American history.

Ethan Hawke

Pedro Almodóvar’s upcoming gay Western Strange Way of Life, starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal, is easily one of our most anticipated movies, like, ever. Now it appears pre-production is finally underway on the film. Hawke shared a photo of himself atop a horse and next to the director with the caption “Giddy up.”

Priyanka

Canada’s Drag Race season one winner Priyanka is celebrating a milestone: Five glorious and glamorous years of doing drag. “Happy 5 year drag anniversary to me,” she wrote on Instagram. Time flies wowowowoow I can’t believe all that’s happened. She was feeling her oats in 2017 baby!”

What’s her name? Winner.

Reservation Dogs

The trailer for season two of the hilarious and heartfelt series Reservation Dogs is here. It picks up where season one left off with Elora (played by out actor Devery Jacobs) making her way to California with rival gang member Jackie (Elva Guerra).

Reservation Dogs returns on August 3, exclusively on Hulu.

Jojo Siwa

Jojo Siwa opened up to People about why she needed to redecorate her home from its formerly sparkly decor.

“We did take it down a couple notches, and that’s because I used to be a very, very dedicated and committed YouTuber,” said the Jojo Goes star. “I would always film in the house, and I wanted to be Jake Paul back in the day… Then my career shifted into more music, more TV, more movies, more that type of stuff.”

“When I stopped filming in the house every day, it was really weird for me to come into the house, and it felt like work,” she shared. “So I told my family, ‘Let’s change the house to a nice, pretty, calm, serene house.'”

That’s not the only change Siwa’s made in her life, as she recently reunited with her girlfriend Kylie Prew. She’s also become more focused on her health. “I’m very dedicated right now to my physical health and my fitness,” she dished. “I’m really, really big on working out right now, eating healthy right now, drinking water right now. We’re trying to get enough sleep right now — that one never happens though.”

My Old School

The trailer for the true-crime documentary My Old School is here and it looks honestly kind of amazing. It stars out actor Alan Cumming — well, sort of. You see, the subject of the film refused to be filmed so Cumming lipsynced — yes, lipsynced — the part and that’s not even the strangest or most compelling part of the trailer.

Synopsis: In 1993, 16-year-old Brandon Lee enrolled at Bearsden Academy, a secondary school in a well-to-do suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. What followed over the next two years would become the stuff of legend. Brandon had been privately tutored in Canada while he accompanied his mother, an opera diva, on a tour before her tragic death. The preternaturally bright student teachers by blazing toward his goal of entering medical school, displaying a wealth of knowledge beyond his years. Brandon found friends despite his initial awkwardness, taking bullied students under his wing, introducing classmates to seminal retro bands, and even starring in the school’s production of South Pacific. But then his unbelievable secret was revealed. Filmmaker Jono McLeod returns to his old school for a nostalgic look at the strange but true story of his former classmate, Brandon Lee. Utilizing playful, period-specific animation, a pitch-perfect soundtrack, the memories of students and teachers, and the talents of Alan Cumming to bring the tale to life, MY OLD SCHOOL offers more than one surprise along the way.

My Old School premieres in theaters on July 22.

Emily the Criminal

If you’re as obsessed with out actor Aubrey Plaza as I am, you’re going to need to see the trailer for her upcoming crime thriller Emily the Criminal because it looks incredible.

Synopsis: Emily (Aubrey Plaza) is saddled with student debt and locked out of the job market due to a minor criminal record. Desperate for income, she takes a shady gig as a “dummy shopper,” buying goods with stolen credit cards supplied by a handsome and charismatic middleman named Youcef (Theo Rossi). Faced with a series of dead-end job interviews, Emily soon finds herself seduced by the quick cash and illducit thrills of black-market capitalism, and interested in her mentor Youcef. Together, they hatch a plan to bring their business to the next level in Los Angeles.

Emily the Criminal premieres in theaters on August 12
