— there seemed few innovative opportunities for the theater world to engage audiences who were stuck at home on their laptops. And in the process, theater is reclaiming for these trying times its rightful status as the most intimate of art forms.

These online meetups often provide a richness of topical conversation that eludes the town halls staged by TV news networks.

‘The Haunted Bay’ investigates Bay Area ghost stories
Go to “The Haunted Bay” if you’re looking for some real ghost stories this Halloween. It is true that shortly after her mother died in 2005, she met and was impressed by the abilities of Pacifica medium June Ahern (now a semi-regular on “The Haunted Bay”), but the show began in 2012 for thoroughly down-to-earth reasons. In fact, one of them was completely skeptical and at first was laughing at how stupid it was to follow ghost hunters. While walking in the area, Ahern felt certain that a police station had been located in a small alley off of Osgood Place. Things just unfolded the way they did.”“The Haunted Bay” season three begins streaming Friday, Oct. 30, on AsianAmericanMovies.com and Amazon Prime.

The Burnt Orange Heresy review – Mick Jagger adds dash of malice to arty thriller
A sprightly and mischievous cameo from Mick Jagger is one reason to enjoy this movie. It’s a suspense drama-thriller from Oscar-nominated screenwriter Scott Smith who has adapted the 1971 novel by crime author Charles Willeford. But Cassidy himself has a terrible, Mephistophelean proposition to put to Figueras – who is in no position to refuse. It would be great to have Keith Richards play the aged, cantankerous, whiskery painter Debney. • The Burnt Orange Heresy is in cinemas from 30 October.
Tracey Emin on her diagnosis: ‘My mother died of the same cancer but I didn’t think I’d have it’

Speaking to The Telegraph for a forthcoming interview, the 57-year-old Royal Academician referred to the squamous cell cancer as “f---ing evil”, and described the extensive surgery she recently underwent. I didn’t know it was a tumour then, but I had an MRI scan the next day and a phone call that night saying, ‘You’re going nowhere, you’re doing nothing – you’re going straight to hospital.’“And then, within 26 days, I had surgery. I had my bladder removed, a full hysterectomy, I had my urethra removed, my lymph nodes removed and half my vagina.”Emin, speaking in advance of a new show at the Royal Academy in London, also revealed that “my mother died of the same cancer – but I didn’t think I’d have it.” The artist’s mother, Pam, died in 2016. “When I had the camera put inside me, up into my bladder, I saw what it looked like and I thought, ‘Oh my god, I didn’t think cancer looked like that.
Malcolm Arnold, The Dancing Master, review: this risqué comic opera is a brilliant rediscovery
for television in 1952 but never broadcast on account of its faintly risqué subject matter, Malcolm Arnold’s The Dancing Master has never been staged professionally (though a single concert performance of it was given shortly before his death in 2006). Loosely based on a Restoration play by William Wycherley, it’s a lively farce of young love and deception peopled with broad commedia dell’arte characters. Catherine Carby, Fiona Kimm, Mark Wilde and Graeme Broadbent have great fun in supporting roles. With a duration of seventy-five minutes and a cast of only six, a staged première production of The Dancing Master would be a happy way to mark that occasion. The Dancing Master is out now on the Resonus Classics label
Inside Kim Kardashian's birthday island - and why it really is the world's best hideaway
Two years later, he bought Tetiaroa, an atoll just over 30 miles to the north of Tahiti. His passion for the atoll lasted a lifetime. The luxury resort that now inhabits the atoll, suitably named the Brando, is one of the most delightful places I have ever stayed. Like Brando himself, Tetiaroa is a one-off - a low-lying atoll in an ocean of mountainous islands. Some five miles wide, it contains twelve tropical islands, some barely larger than a sandbank, others palm-clad paradises a few miles long, most uninhabited.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wears ‘suffragette white’ power suit for Vanity Fair cover
Wearing white has become a political symbol in recent years among female politicians because of its association with the suffragette movement.

Animal-rights activist group PETA is demanding a federal prison accommodate Ghislaine Maxwell's vegan diet to prevent her from "contributing to suffering." PETA said its decision to advocate for Maxwell follows multiple reports that the facility has for months failed to provide her with meals suitable to her vegan diet.

Newkirk told the Washington Free Beacon that PETA has asked multiple prisons to serve "cruelty-free" meals, which she claims cost less.

Erdogan called the cartoonists ‘scoundrels’ and accused the West of wanting to ‘relaunch the Crusades’ by attacking Islam after the image appeared on the front of this week’s magazine. ‘I don’t need to say anything to those scoundrels who insult my beloved prophet on such a scale,’ Erdogan said, calling it a ‘disgusting attack’. Showing Erdogan in a T-shirt and underpants, the caricature has Erdogan saying ‘Ooh, the Prophet’ as he looks at the woman’s backside, and comes with the caption: ‘Erdogan – in private he’s very funny’.
Baltimore Museum of Art Loses $50 Million Planned Gift Over Deaccession
The furor over the Baltimore Museum of Art’s (BMA) deaccessioning of three major works—by Brice Marden, Clyfford Still, and Andy Warhol—continues, with two former board chairs announcing the withdrawal of planned gifts totaling $50 million, and two artists resigning from the institution’s board of trustees. Stiles Colwill and Charles Newhall III said that they would cancel their pledged gifts, of $20 million and $30 million, respectively, in protest of the sales, with Newhall additionally resigning as honorary trustee. Thus I allowed word of my decision along with that of Mr. Charles Newhall . to [be] announced.” Newhall announced the retraction of his own gift along with his resignation in an October 15 letter and called for “any public display” associated with his family’s previous $5 million gifts to be removed from the institution. Supporters contend that the sale, expected to raise $65 million—of which $10 million is earmarked for new acquisitions, with an emphasis on artists of color from the postwar era—represents an example of progressive deaccessioning, which is intended to expand representation of previously overlooked artists.

With “Topper,” “The Awful Truth,” and “Bringing Up Baby,” the recently christened Cary Grant found his truest expression as farceur: virile and subtle, intelligent and flummoxed and — crucially — not quite believing in his own attractiveness. “Why would I believe that Cary was homosexual,” asked third wife Betsy Drake, “when we were busy” fornicating? “You don’t look like Cary Grant,” someone once told him. “Nobody does.”Louis Bayard is a novelist and reviewer whose most recent book is “Courting Mr. Lincoln.”Cary GrantA Brilliant DisguiseBy Scott Eyman

Then stop seeing it as a lifestyle and start seeing it as hard work, says Anthony Andrews. “It’s so unhelpful and misleading,” explains Andrews, who launched We Are Parable, a film exhibition firm, with his wife Teanne in 2013. “People think you don’t have to put the work in – that it’s all about passion.

"Sexy Lexy" was resold via a stolen car reselling ring, which later fell under investigation by police.

A haunted house story for Halloween
The haunted house story embodies the best that horror has to offer: history, mystery, suspense, psychological intrigue, and the pervasive presence of the supernatural. His 1898 novella, The Turn of the Screw, became a masterpiece of gothic fiction and an archetypal haunted house story. Coming soon on the heels of The Turning and just in time for Halloween is the nine-part Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor. But this is a haunted house story, which means that things must begin to go wrong at some point. And wherever you happen to be this fall, if you’re looking for something spooky to stream this Halloween, The Haunting of Bly Manor is not a bad choice.
Sarah Cooper’s Netflix special is a crime against comedy
Watching Sarah Cooper’s special Everything’s Fine feels like dying — not a short, intense, violent death as well but a long, slow, painful one. But there was still something a bit lazy about Ms Cooper’s routine — and absolutely nothing funny. The question was, how could someone known for a single joke fill up a special? Aubrey Plaza is quite funny as a telemarketer enmeshed in the world of QAnon. ‘At this moment,’ says the hackneyed overdramatic narrator towards the end of the special, ‘Sarah Cooper realized that it was not she who had lost her mind.
The Spectator Australia
Imagine daring to make another version of Rebecca. Hitchcock’s 1940 film is the version that is bound to overshadow any subsequent attempt to put Daphne Du Maurier’s story on any screen large or small. Well, Rebecca is the paradigm of what a film version of this kind of haunting romantic melodrama can achieve. Legend has it that Welles actually took over the direction of the film in the stunning sequence where the meek Jane meets her overlord. It doesn’t stand up badly even though it is in some ways a period piece.

Despite COVID, the Entertainment Industry Is Abuzz With Activity
Faced with an unprecedented situation and the widespread closure of brick-and-mortar operations, the entertainment industry has been forced to navigate without a roadmap. Despite the economic downturn, this has expedited a paradigm shift throughout the industry which has already begun to spur change and action. As consumers maintain a cautious approach to returning to theaters, Disney has opted to send Pixar’s Soul directly to Disney+ proper on Christmas. This is in line with the boon the subscription-video on demand industry has seen as a result of the pandemic’s home confinement. Though the entertainment industry finds itself in a tumultuous situation, the development and evolution that has already resulted is just the beginning.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt Has Always Made You Wonder What’s Under His Skin
What lies between the leading man and the character actor? The way Gordon-Levitt paints him lost in fantasy with blinders of love blocking his field of vision exemplifies this throughout the film. Not quite a character actor yet still a rung below the lead. It’s an emotionally revealing moment that Gordon-Levitt plays well as matter-of-fact and only works because it’s coming from an everyman like his Blake. He may not be an perennial Oscar-contending, box-office busting movie star (at least, not yet), nor is he the unknowable character actor destined to the periphery.

The “Supernatural” actress was also invited to attend the group’s seminars by yet another follower, Bonnie Piesse, who is prominently featured in the HBO mini-series. “We went out for dinner and she was like, ‘Oh, you’ve got to come to this group,’” she recalled.

On Tuesday, a judge denied the Kardashians’ motion to dismiss 32-year-old Chyna’s lawsuit against them over the cancellation of her reality series with ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian, “Rob & Chyna.”“Chyna is beyond thrilled that she will have her day in court,” Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, told Page Six in a statement.

Though Chyna has won this round in her feud with the reality TV family, she’s also hit snags in the legal effort. Last month, Chyna attempted to have Rob Kardashian’s assault case against her dropped, but a judge ruled it should go forward.
Stephen Amell may be fudging the timeline of his bout with COVID
Insiders say there may be more to the story of Stephen Amell’s bout with COVID than he’s letting on. The “Arrow” star said on a podcast that he had “no idea” where he got the virus, which he said left him soaked in a cold sweat. But sources close to the star say that the party he threw for his wife’s birthday this month might be a good place to start. “He hosted a … birthday party in Palm Springs,” said a source, although the added that it’s not clear if that’s where Amell got it, if he had the disease during the party or if he got it after. A rep for Starz told us, “The health and safety of all our employees, casts and crews remain our top priority.

Hugh Grant makes very British ‘dogging’ joke at Hamptons drive-in screening
Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)It’s not that kind of party, Hugh. As Hugh Grant introduced a drive-in screening of HBO’s psychological thriller series “The Undoing” this past weekend out East, he welcomed the crowd of heavyweights by saying: “Hello, Hamptons. I think you’re going to watch two episodes in your cars, which is … really weird. Maybe you’ll do some necking, or some dogging … whatever people do in cars in the Hamptons.”His co-star Nicole Kidman was left blushing, while we wonder whether attendees at the Cinema Society screening even understood the British slang (which means to have sex with strangers in cars in secluded places). Following the showing, there was a long “honking” (as in car horn) ovation.

Ahead of the election, a landslide of documentaries
The election has unleashed an avalanche of documentaries like no season before itAhead of the election, a landslide of documentariesBy JAKE COYLEAP Film WriterThe Associated PressNEW YORKNEW YORK (AP) — The election has unleashed an avalanche of documentaries like no season before it. In a presidential election of enormous stakes, filmmakers have rushed to finish their films before Election Day, to try to inform, sway and entertain the electorate.

Preserved DNA helps crack case of 5-year-old Montana girl killed in 1974
The cold case murder of a 5-year-old Montana girl may have finally been solved 46 years later, after DNA evidence preserved from the scene identified her suspected killer as a transient who died in 2012, authorities said. The child’s body was found two days later near the Turah exit on Interstate 90, stabbed and sexually assaulted. DNA preserved from the crime scene partially matched the DNA of a family member of Davis, who had sent a sample into a consumer database, Missoula Police Chief Jason White said Monday. Siobhan’s half-sister, Oona McGuinness, said Monday that Davis’ family reached out to hers. The manner in which authorities traced the killing back to him is the same way officers identified the Golden State Killer.

The 'Archer' Season 11 finale should've been its last. But we needed more of its valiant comedy.
Mostly void stuff." "Archer" finishes its 11th season Wednesday; it was suddenly snatched from the jaws of cancellation last week (likely because of renewed interest in its no-longer-final season) and will have a 12th season next year. It's amazing how much of "Archer" — which reliably makes me laugh so hard I can't breathe — is about stuff that doesn't seem funny. A lot of what makes "Archer" good — and it is really good — is the way it blends good things that are odd together. Archer got shot at the end of the seventh season and spent seasons eight, nine and 10 hallucinating various strange and pulpy adventures before he woke up.

Grandparents Don't Want to Be Called "Grandma" and "Grandpa" Anymore
But being called “Grandma" and "Grandpa?” Maybe not for everybody. Growing up, in my family we called our grandmothers Grandma Rose and Grandma Bessie, to distinguish between the two; our only living grandfather was simply Grandpa. Similarly, my kids called their only set of living grandparents Grandma and Grandpa. “I was 53 with my first grandchild and I felt I was too young to be called Grandma,” explains Ellis. So, unless our admittedly brilliant Gypsy starts speaking English soon, we will be waiting patiently to put La La and Pup Pup to good use.

Mr Fox also references his estranged wife's most celebrated work, her 1983 novel The Life and Loves of a She-Devil, noting wryly in his final haiku that he "should have trusted book's title". Mr Fox, who acted as Weldon's manager and publicist, said he had always done his utmost to stand behind her so she could pursue her career as a "great writer" because "I was in love with her". Later that year she married Mr Fox, undeterred by the scandal over the fact that she was 60 and he was 45 when they got together. Mr Weldon said she was too frail to discuss the split as she is recuperating from a stroke. She was hospitalised in October last year after breaking a bone when she had a fall, Mr Weldon said.

If American politics have you feeling despondent, the British import, “Roadkill,” isn’t likely to add cheer and optimism.

The BET Hip Hop Awards couldn’t quite make that happen last night, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but it brought the next best thing: four absolutely stacked groups of rappers. “And if they say the sky is the limit, then buy a cloud,” she wrapped her verse. “Talkin’ money, well, then let your money do the talkin’,” she rapped. “They really the threat, but that’s how they portray me,” Polo G went in on his opening verse. “Martin had a dream, pop / Breonna couldn’t dream, pop,” she opened, miming gunshots on her head.
This Is Us Season-Premiere Recap: A Tragedy in Two Parts
Plus, the show feels equipped to deal with some of the complex issues and emotions we’re dealing with today. The second tragedy Beth is referring to — and the flashbacks in which we get the most new information — is the fate that befalls William and Laurel. We watch the moment when William, holding his new son, goes to check on Laurel only to find she has overdosed. • Anyone else aching for Kevin and Randall to really confront each other over what was said during that season-four argument? • I guess Baby Jack is in a reboot of Baby’s Day Out or something?
Clare Crawley’s Bachelorette Contestants Are Turning Against Her and Dale Moss
“If some of these guys are picking up on Dale and I’s relationship and the connection him and I have, guess what? It’s because I like him, that’s why,” Crawley, who referred to Moss as her “fiancé” in the episode, explained. (And, during her first group date, Crawley asked a producer to “speed this up” after her bedroom time with Moss ended.) Until then, please enjoy this compendium of irate contestant quotes from Tuesday’s episode, which were flung at Crawley and Moss’s behavior. “People have noticed Dale having a connection with Clare.
Kelly Clarkson Bestows New Christmas Song Upon Us

Photo: NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty ImagesOut of all of Kelly Clarkson’s original Christmas songs about finding a man underneath a plant, her new song “Under the Mistletoe” is not the best. But listen closely, and “Under the Mistletoe” isn’t as straightforward a track as it appears. In the chorus, Clarkson sings, “Santa hear my prayer,” which … Are we praying to Santa now? He is technically a saint, so it checks out, theologically, to pray to Santa.
Big Sean and Jhené Aiko Made Ty Dolla $ign Third Wheel at the BET Hip Hop Awards
Big Sean and Jhené Aiko wasted no time getting reacquainted on the BET Hip Hop Awards stage. The once-off, now-on-again couple linked up to perform their song “Body Language” off Sean’s stellar new album Detroit 2. Oh, and Ty Dolla $ign was there, too, playing third wheel from a separate stage. After you call your own album Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, don’t be surprised when things like this happen. Back to Sean and Jhené: The two performed on a red-hot set arranged like a bedroom, dancing and grinding their way over to the bed like we weren’t even watching.

Robyn, Queer Clubbing, the xx, and 6 More Influences on Romy’s Debut Solo Music
“I’ve always been quite content being in the xx,” Romy says, calling from the London studio where she has spent the day working on new solo music. I’m incorporating the guitar into some of the stuff, but none of it’s just like a guitar ballad, really. I’ve always felt embarrassed to say that because [media are] like, “Who is your guitar inspiration?,” thinking I’m going to say someone really amazing at guitar. It’s still such a good song, and one of the Cure songs that is more in that electronic vein that I’m going for. Then I realized I was describing Robyn’s music to herself: emotional dance music that is a beautiful song as well as something you can dance to.

Borat Babysitter Speaks Out on Getting Fooled: ‘I Blame Myself’
Jeanise Jones in the new Borat film. She didn’t discover that the documentary was fake until a relative showed her the Borat trailer. “I’m feeling like she’s from the Third World and that kind of stuff does happen where they sell women,” Jones reportedly told the Post. “I’m thinking this is for real so I felt kind of betrayed by it.”While speaking to Variety, however, Jones said that the Post didn’t accurately reflect what she said. What I said was that I didn’t know it was a movie or an R-rated movie.
David Bowie Is Rolling in His Glittery Grave After Watching the Stardust Trailer
And yet, somehow, here Stardust is. In the first trailer of this alleged David Bowie movie, Johnny Flynn portrays the space alien during his career lull in the early ’70s, when Bowie heads to America with his “mystical mime act” to win over new fans during a cross-country promotional tour. His new publicist (a wiggy Marc Maron) is also along for the ride, even if he begins having doubts that Bowie can transcend to icon status. Expect some Tumblr-repost quotes such as “there’s no authentic me, it’s just fear” and “a rock star of somebody impersonating a rock star, what’s the difference?” to pop up. Stardust will be released on-demand and in theaters on November 25.
Khloé Has COVID in Keeping Up With the Kardashians Trailer
Photo: Keeping Up With The Kardashians/YouTubeIt’s only been a day and we already have the sequel to the latest coronavirus-era artwork, Kim Kardashian and the Big Bad Birthday Party. A clip from the upcoming Thursday, October 29, episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians reveals that Kim’s sister Khloé was sick with coronavirus earlier this year during filming. In the clip, Kim confesses to the camera that the family is awaiting Khloé’s COVID-19 test results and that she has been “so sick” and is getting scared. I have been in my room, it’s going to be fine, but it was really bad for a couple of days.” Khloé outlines her symptoms, which included, “vomiting, shaking, and hot and then cold. She was all better in time to swim with the whales.
The Masked Dancer Is Still Actually Happening
Photo: Jim Spellman/Getty ImagesMaybe the world actually went to hell back in January, when Fox announced it would develop a series based on Ellen DeGeneres’s Ellen Show segment spoofing The Masked Singer: The Masked Dancer. The Masked Dancer will premiere in December, with The Office star Craig Robinson hosting. Ken Jeong will hold over from The Masked Singer judges’ table; joining him will be dancing and competition-judging icon Paula Abdul, former Giraffe on The Masked Singer Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale, who has somewhat surprisingly never competed on The Masked Singer. “Costumed celebrities will be joined onstage by masked partners and backup dancers, as they perform a series of dances together,” a release explains. We hate to ask, but when it comes to the other dancers, are we talking COVID-masked or Masked Singer–masked?

‘Two Weeks to Live’ With Maisie Williams Trailer: WATCH
There are plenty of jolly good ways to spend your time if you were brainwashed into thinking that you had only 14 days until the world burns from a nuclear explosion, so kudos to Maisie Williams’s character in Two Weeks to Live for finally acting on her lifelong passion: hunting down and brutally killing the man who murdered her father years prior. (Hey, our gal just loves to put a knife through wrinkly old dudes.) In the trailer for the comedic limited series, coming to HBO Max, our young protagonist is able to break away from the clutches of her mother’s (Fleabag’s Sian Clifford) doomsday compound to enjoy a much deserved jaunt around the country — especially since she just discovered that her life “is a lie.” Need a dagger? The series, which aired in the U.K. earlier this year, will stream on November 5.
Yet Another Vanderpump Star Is Pregnant
And now, yet another Vanderpump Rules star is pregnant. “There was just nothing progressing, nothing going on inside,” she said during an episode of her Scheananigans podcast back in June. It’s still been a lot to process.”It’s still unclear whether Vanderpump Rules will return with a ninth season, but this latest development does make my own pitch for a Vanderpump Babies spinoff all the more compelling, and Bravo should certainly feel free to list me as some sort of producer should they move forward with the idea.

NXIVM Founder Keith Raniere Sentenced to 120 Years in Prison
NXIVM founder Keith Raniere. Photo: HBOKeith Raniere, the mastermind behind the purported “self-help” group NXIVM, which he used to recruit and groom women for sexual exploitation, has been sentenced to 120 years in prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. In March 2018, Raniere was arrested, as were five other women with ties to NXIVM, all of whom have since pleaded guilty to the racketeering charges against them. (Of the five, only Seagram liquor heiress Clare Bronfman, who used her immense wealth to bankroll NXIVM’s activities, has been sentenced.) Ahead of Raniere’s sentencing, a total of 15 people took the stand to deliver harrowing testimonies about the abuse they suffered at the hands of Raniere.
Jacob Wohl Has Been Indicted for Voter Suppression Again
Photo: John Middlebrook/CSM/ShutterstockJacob Wohl’s efforts to fill the Monopoly-man shoes of Roger Stone have gotten him into legal trouble a lot faster than his ratfucking predecessor. Over the past 13 months, in between selling a $500 fitness program to his Instagram followers, Wohl has faced felony charges in California over alleged violations of securities law. Together with his sidekick, Jack Burkman, he is under investigation by the FBI over a leak of juror questionnaires in Stone’s trial. And earlier this month, the pair was slapped with four felony counts each in Michigan for their alleged orchestration of a voter-suppression scheme. Prior to their alleged efforts to suppress the minority vote in midwestern swing states, Wohl and Burkman were known for their outlandish and easily foiled stunts, in which they falsely accused politicians and public figures of sexual misconduct.
Jon Stewart to Return to Television With New Apple TV+ Series

Stewart will serve as an executive producer through his company, Busboy Productions; he’ll be joined by his manager James Dixon and the former HBO exec Richard Plepler. Stewart had more recently gotten into directing films, including 2014’s Rosewater and Irresistible, starring Rose Byrne and Stewart’s former Daily Show collaborator Steve Carell, which premiered earlier this year.

Why Joe Rogan’s Latest Podcast With Conspiracy-Monger Alex Jones Is OK With Spotify
Spotify has not removed the “Joe Rogan Experience” episode with Jones, which also remains available on YouTube and Apple Podcasts, despite a backlash on social media. “The Joe Rogan Experience” joined Spotify’s lineup in September under a multiyear pact reportedly worth $100 million. When it added “The Joe Rogan Experience” last month, Spotify omitted several episodes with far-right guests, including a February 2019 episode featuring Jones. Throughout the episode, Jones, who was arrested and charged with DWI in March, is seen drinking alcohol. According to Spotify, “The Joe Rogan Experience” has long been the most-searched-for podcast on its service.
A DJ Rediscovered Joni Mitchell’s Earliest Recordings. Now Everyone Can Hear Them
“I jokingly said, ‘I wonder if that old Joni Mitchell tape is in there — wouldn’t that be something?’” Bowman tells Rolling Stone from his home in Victoria, British Columbia. They soon befriended a 19-year-old art student named Joni Anderson, later to be known as Joni Mitchell. “It didn’t stop me from tossing the story into conversations from time to time about Joni Mitchell, but that was about it.”The unearthed tape that Bowman found, simply labeled “Joni Anderson Audition,” is Mitchell’s earliest known recording. It’s included in Joni Mitchell Archives Vol. I think the thing that’s really going to be exciting for people is all of her early songs that nobody’s ever heard.

Hear Karen O and Willie Nelson’s Transformative Cover of Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’
Karen O and Willie Nelson have partnered for an unlikely cover of Queen and David Bowie’s classic hit, “Under Pressure.”The pair completely transform the 1981 pop gem into a slow-and-steady country-tinged ballad, with O and Nelson’s vastly different voices combining in a particularly poignant way — the former’s sweet croon intertwines with the latter’s weathered drawl as they move through the song’s bridge. The cover was produced by Dave Sitek and features guitar from Nick Zinner, Imaad Wasif, and Johnny Hanson, as well as background vocals from Priscilla Ahn. In a statement, O explained the origins of the collaboration, saying she’d reached out to Nelson, via Johnny Knoxville, in the hopes that he’d sign a National Independent Venue Association open letter to Congress. I never knew if it was actually going to happen but you must dare to dream. I hope the song brings as much light to the listener as it has to me in dark times.”

Billy Joe Shaver: 10 Essential Songs
Billy Joe Shaver, who died Wednesday at 81, wrote country songs about what he knew firsthand: sin and heartbreak, hard living and hard working, and ultimately salvation. The tune first appeared on Shaver’s Tramp on Your Street album, which featured Billy Joe and Eddy together. They later recut the tune for their Victory album, and Billy Joe sang it alone. J.B.“Ride Me Down Easy”Another great song Billy Joe Shaver penned for Waylon Jennings after they crossed paths in the early Seventies, “Ride Me Down Easy” is an outlaw’s repentance. “I Been to Georgia on a Fast Train”On his first big hit, Billy Joe Shaver was in a reflective, sunny mood.
Watch Dave Grohl Fight Coffee Addiction in Freshpotix Parody Ad
Foo Fighters parody those nonstop prescription medication TV commercials in an elaborate faux ad for Freshpotix, which the band posted on YouTube Wednesday. The clip stars Dave Grohl as a former coffee addict whose love of the bean caused friction between him and his Foo Fighters bandmates. My ability to maintain personal relationships and bowel movements were compromised by crippling sleep deprivation and noxious coffee breath,” Grohl says in voiceover. It’s unclear whether the ad signals something’s afoot in the world of Foo Fighters — the band is in the studio together for the commercial — or if it’s just for a laugh. The Freshpotix ad also calls back to Fresh Pots!, a 2010 video uploaded by Them Crooked Vultures that documented Grohl’s then-coffee addiction:
Billy Joe Shaver, Seminal Outlaw-Country Songwriter, Dead at 81
Billy Joe Shaver, the outlaw-country music pioneer who wrote some of the genre’s greatest songs, died Wednesday in Waco, Texas, after suffering a stroke. “Billy Joe was already there before anybody was talking about an outlaw movement,” early fan Steve Earle said in 2010. In 1971, Kristofferson invited Shaver to play the Dripping Springs reunion — which inspired Willie Nelson to host his revered annual picnic — in Austin. “He said, ‘Do you got any more of them cowboy songs?” Shaver recalled to Rolling Stone in 2010. After his debut album, Old Five and Dimers, was released in 1973 by Monument, the label went out of business.
iLe Drops ‘Donde Nadie Más Respira’ Ahead of the Election

It’s time to overthrow these twisted systems.”“Donde Nadie Más Respira” follows the single “En Cantos,” a duet released with Mexican alt-pop star Natalia Lafourcade. Last year, she released her second album Almadura, and collaborated with Bad Bunny and Residente on the Puerto Rican protest song “Afilando Los Cuchillos.”

Gang member who says he fought R. Kelly in prison receives life sentence for deaths
— A convicted gang member who said he beat up jailed R&B singer R. Kelly in a Chicago cell in August has been sentenced to life in prison for a racketeering conviction that involved two 1999 murders. Farmer, a Latin King street gang member, had faced a mandatory life sentence following his conviction last year on conspiracy to commit racketeering activity in a drug-related case that involved the killings of Marion Lowry, 74, and Harvey Siegers, 67. Farmer was able to slip away from an employee at the center, enter a cell and repeatedly hit Kelly in the head, according to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons report. Kelly, 53, faces several dozen counts of state and federal sexual misconduct charges in Illinois, Minnesota and New York, from sexual assault to heading a racketeering scheme aimed at supplying him with girls. The Grammy Award winning singer has denied ever abusing anyone.

'We got tough on our songwriting': The Edge talks U2's 'All That You Can't Leave Behind' 20 years later
It seems like a blink of an eye, but it was 20 years ago that U2 dropped its 10th studio album "All That You Can't Leave Behind." "It's the most complete U2 record," The Edge (real name David Evans) tells USA TODAY. In all, it earned U2 seven Grammys, including record of the year and best rock album. Enduring hits from the album include "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of," "Elevation" and "Walk On." But none can top "Beautiful Day," which lives on today, 20 years later, in a variety of TV shows and advertisements.
Billy Joe Shaver, outlaw country great, dies at 81
Billy Joe Shaver, a masterful songwriter and near-mythic character in outlaw country, died Wednesday at age 81. Shaver, a Texas country songwriter, died after complications from a stroke in Waco, Texas, according to a Rolling Stone report. Shaver lived a life of outlaw country legend, penning songs for Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Elvis Presley. He co-wrote essential songs to the movement, including 10 tracks heard on Waylon Jennings' 1973 "Honkey Tonk Heroes" record — a vital addition to the outlaw country canon. "I think maybe I was born to be a songwriter," Shaver told The Tennessean in 2014.
Khloe Kardashian reveals past COVID-19 diagnosis; Kim faces backlash over party
Khloe Kardashian had an early case of COVID-19, a new teaser for "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" revealed Wednesday. "I just found out that I do have corona," Khloe Kardashian said in a phone video in the teaser. Notably absent from photos: the birthday girl's husband, Kanye West, half-sister Kylie Jenner, and Caitlyn Jenner. The group "danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more," Kardashian shared. "I can't even hug my mom, but glad you got to go to your private island and do whatever you wanted," added @itsameantonia.
In HBO’s ‘Industry,’ Gen Z Bankers in Existential Crisis
Dramas set in the financial world usually focus on the savvy power brokers on top. The new HBO series “Industry” is more invested in the struggle (and sex and partying) at the entry level, with a group of Gen Z recruits trying to make it at a London investment bank. These lopsided power dynamics underlie the tension at play in “Industry,” premiering Nov. 9. Despite the show’s financial setting—the fictional Pierpoint & Co is a firm that traffics in post-Brexit trading strategies—its real focus is an ensemble of characters in messy transition. That makes it less like Showtime’s “Billions,” about a cutthroat hedge fund founder, than “Euphoria” or “Girls,” two other HBO shows about generational turmoil.
Elvis Costello on ‘Accidents Will Happen’
“Accidents Will Happen” opened the third album by newly minted rock star Elvis Costello in 1979. Recorded with his band the Attractions, the song helped push the album, “Armed Forces,” to No. 10 on the Billboard chart for two weeks in March that year. In a recent conversation, Mr. Costello revealed the deeper meaning of the lyrics in the autobiographical song—beyond the telling in his 2015 memoir—and shared his regrets and the song’s influences. His new album, “Hey Clockface” (Concord), is due Saturday , and his remastered...

Dominican actors playing Chileans — or Jamaican actors playing Kenyans — are largely on their own. “We celebrate it when white actors nail an accent,” she said. “Right now, most Latino families on TV are coached by white coaches,” Ms. de Vasco said. “On the one hand, a coach should be able to coach whatever they’re skilled at.

Paige VanZant’s pushy fans want to buy X-rated OnlyFans content
Ex-UFC fighter Paige VanZant is flabbergasted over fans allegedly mailing her cash for X-rated pics and imploring her to set up a celebrity OnlyFans account. The Oregon-born scrapper reportedly received the lecherous requests after doing a write-in Q&A session with her husband and fellow fighter Austin Vanderford, reported the Sun. However, despite frequently posting saucy swimsuit snaps to the ‘Gram, that’s where VanZant drew the line. Earlier this month, a thief allegedly broke into VanZant’s car and left the door open in the middle of a downpour. She replied, “Listen, if you’re going to break into my car, please shut the door.”

Review: A rom-com gone wrong in Netflix’s ‘Holidate’
If it didn’t actually exist, “Holidate” would sound like one of those fake movies within a movie. It’s a perfect rom-com concept in that it’s equal parts ridiculous and shamefully appealing.

“Come Play,” in theaters Friday, Oct. 30, is a kid-centered fright film about a lonely online storybook creature that wants a friend. “Come Play” has a troubled family at its center, which also feels like something we’ve been seeing for decades. In the real world, he’s a puppet from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, which additionally evokes a slower, last-century feel. The most shocking thing about “Come Play,” however, is that it has a pretty good ending after such a long, poorly paced slog through scary movie cliches. If the rest of the film played at this level, it might’ve been a great internet monster movie.

Boone Pickens Collection," a landmark auction of American Western art, at high noon today (11 a.m. Oklahoma time) in New York.

The art with which he chose to surround himself consistently depicts the bold, strong-willed personages of the West and the endurance of the American spirit.
Wole Soyinka to publish first novel in almost 50 years
Wole Soyinka has used his time in lockdown to write his first novel in almost 50 years.

The Burnt Orange Heresy, review: Mick Jagger’s art-heist thriller is too soft-boiled
Cast: Claes Bang, Elizabeth Debicki, Donald Sutherland, Mick Jagger. The Burnt Orange Heresy has a rather enticing brief – it’s a thriller about art fraud, with an intriguing cast, not least a delicious Mick Jagger cameo, and some hard-boiled credentials. Screenwriter Scott B Smith, meanwhile, is the author of A Simple Plan, which he adapted himself for Sam Raimi in 1998. It’s lively talk, with attractive performances, but you can’t help wondering when the thriller end of the bargain is meant to kick in. One interested listener is Berenice (Elizabeth Debicki), a Minnesotan idling around Italy who lingers after his class.
'It was easier to adopt an American accept': John Cooper Clarke on how his travels shaped him
Since my childhood I had been fascinated by the United States. Growing up in Salford, I had watched American movies and read American comic books. That was when I started adopting an American accent (though only when I am in the United States, mind). To me it was the home of the Rat Pack, of Elvis, of singing legends I’d revered for years. I always think about the psycho-geography whenever I visit a place, so I was imagining that this was a road trip the Rat Pack might have made when those guys performed in Vegas.

Spitting Image creator speaks out after series is pulled from US TV broadcast

Two Recent Country Albums Walk the Line Between Pop and Purist
C. Albert Blomquist: S/T[Self-released; Oct. 2]????Charles Latham and the Borrowed Band: S/T[Self-released; July 21]???1/2It’s getting so that country radio is the last place you’d look for country music. But two recent local records, both of which happen to be self-titled and have physical releases coming out on November 13, adroitly walk the line between pop and purist, recalling the alt-country heyday of Uncle Tupelo and No Depression magazine. Clark Blomquist and Charles Latham both home in on a certain timeless simplicity, letting old tropes and truisms breathe clear contemporary air. He always surprises us, and given his esoteric track record, making fine, flowing country music is probably the last way he could. On vocals and rhythm guitar, Latham leads a well-drilled band featuring cool-headed singer Abby Sheriff and fluent lead guitarist Luis Rodriguez, among others, all glinting together like stars in a constellation.
‘My Psychedelic Love Story’: A flashback down memory lane to meet Timothy Leary
‘My Psychedelic Love Story.’The 34th annual AFI Fest is arguably Los Angeles’s biggest and best film festival, and this year it is taking place virtually through Oct. 22 (see more here). The closing world premiere of the American Film Institute’s yearly fete is the Showtime documentary My Psychedelic Love Story, wherein Timothy Leary, the High Priest of LSD, meets Errol Morris, the High Priest of documentaries. Morris’s groovy movie uses a psychedelic style to tell the inside story of Leary on the lam and his love affair with Joanna Harcourt-Smith, 26 years his junior. As she says in extensive interviews specifically for My Psychedelic Love Story, she sought Morris out to tell this story on the screen. Although Wormwood is much more of a genre bender than My Psychedelic Love Story, the latter is thematically linked to Morris’s extravaganza in terms of the central roles played by LSD and the Central Intelligence Agency.

There's a Reason Episode 8 of The Haunting of Bly Manor Is Everyone's Favourite of the Season
It's no surprise that the eighth episode of The Haunting of Bly Manor, "The Certain Romance of Old Clothes," quickly became a fan favourite — particularly with its heart-wrenching story and a masterful performance from Kate Siegel. In case you were wondering, it wasn't just a fan favourite, it was the writers' favourite episode, too. The episode is the only one of the season to be shot in black and white and shows the Lady in the Lake's origins. "The heartbreak and the misery and the loss and the stubbornness in Viola's heart become this gravity well in all of Bly Manor," Siegel added. The Lady in the Lake is the reason that the ghosts can't leave Bly Manor, so it only makes sense that her origin episode holds all the answers for the season and makes her the heart of Bly Manor.

The Undoing's First Season Is Short and Sweet, So It Won't Be Long Until the Killer Is Revealed

Since most mystery drama shows usually get to the bottom of whodunnit in the finale episode, you're probably wondering how long we have to wait until we get some answers. Well, it turns out, you won't have to wait very long. Since The Undoing is billed as a miniseries, the show only consists of six episodes, which means the season one finale will air on Monday, 30 Nov. Also, since the show just premiered, there hasn't been any talk of a possible second season yet, but given what happened with Big Little Lies, we aren't ruling out the possibility just yet.

Ever Wondered Whether Tamsin and Taron Egerton Are Related? You're Not Alone

Taron, who is best known for his roles in Kingsman: The Secret Service and Rocketman, was born on 10 Nov. 1989 in Birkenhead, near Liverpool, and spent most of his life in Wales with his parents.

Even though his character Benny sports a scruffy moustache, a goofy leather trench coat, and a cowboy hat throughout the whole series, that didn't stop me from swooning over him. I don't know how to explain it, but when Beth pushes Benny's hair back in episode five, something changed for me. If you've watched the series, then you know what I mean. If you haven't watched yet, allow this thirst post to persuade you to add the show to your watchlist.
It's Official: Jade Thirlwall and Jordan Stephens Are Dating!
Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall recently confirmed her budding new relationship with actor and musician Jordan Stephens from Rizzle Kicks, and we couldn't be happier. In a recent interview with Ru Paul, Thirlwall described Stephens as her "boyfriend" and went on to explain the importance of her partner being a fan of drag culture. Since the start of lockdown, Thirlwall and Stephens have been going on socially distanced dates and began messaging earlier this year. It's safe to say that the curiosity ends here, with our now confirmed update that they are in fact a couple. Going back to drag culture, it's true, Jordan Stephens recently appeared in Netflix 2018 film called Tucked about an emerging drag performer who seeks guidance from the more experienced among him.
Schitt's Creek Has the Kardashians to Thank for Alexis Rose's Iconic Hand Gesture
If you've ever found yourself duplicating the iconic hand gestures of Schitt's Creek's Alexis Rose, you have an entirely different famous family to thank: the Kardashians. That's right, not only did actor Annie Murphy base Alexis's vocal fry on the likes of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, she based her signature hand gesture on how those two reality stars hold their bags. Much like her frequently yelling David's name, this is one of the biggest defining characteristics of the essence of Alexis. Guess that means she's not only a little bit Alexis, but a little bit Kardashian, too. In case you've forgotten how to do "the Alexis," below are just a few of our favourite GIFs of her famous gesture.
The Haunting of Bly Manor's Lady in the Lake Is Actually the Heart of the Entire Story
It's no surprise that the eighth episode of The Haunting of Bly Manor, "The Certain Romance of Old Clothes," quickly became a fan favourite — particularly with its heart-wrenching story and a masterful performance from Kate Siegel. In case you were wondering, it wasn't just a fan favourite, it was the writers' favourite episode, too. The episode is the only one of the season to be shot in black and white and shows the Lady in the Lake's origins. "The heartbreak and the misery and the loss and the stubborn willfulness in Viola's heart become this gravity well in all of Bly Manor," Siegel added. The Lady in the Lake is the reason that the ghosts can't leave Bly Manor, so it only makes sense that her origin episode holds all the answers for the season and makes her the heart of Bly Manor.
After 35 Years, Comic Relief Will No Longer Be Sending Celebrities to Africa
Founded in 1985 by Sir Lenny Henry, Comic Relief was created as a way for comedians to raise awareness of poverty in the UK and Africa through comedy. A large part of previous Comic Relief shows, however, has included a segment in which well-known celebrities visit poor villages in Africa to shed light on the poverty crisis and offer their volunteering services. ADVERTISEMENTIn discussion with MPs last year, Richard Curtis — Comic Relief cofounder — stated that the charity was "moving away from celebrity-led fundraising films." Comic Relief will be premiering three new films by local creators from across Africa on Wednesday, touching on themes such as mental health, climate change, and forced marriages. POPSUGAR has reached out to Comic Relief directly for a comment and will update this post in due time.
Maya Jama’s Catwoman Halloween Makeup Is the Perfect Mix of Spooky and Sexy
For the special Halloween edition of ITV's Don't Hate the Playaz, Maya Jama decided to channel her inner Catwoman with a black latex jumpsuit and some seriously amazing makeup courtesy of Anna Lingis. Maya Jama showed off her spooky-sexy look with a hilarious video on her social media channels as she continues to try and hone her TikTok skills. For Maya Jama's base, she used Nars foundation, Morphe concealer, bronzer from Charlotte Tilbury, and highlighter form Doll Beauty. To complete the look, hairstylist Patrick Wilson slicked Maya Jama's hair back into a high ponytail, tacking on extra-long extensions, so that her pony stretched all the way down her back. Keep reading to see both Lingis and Wilson's Halloween handiwork — as well as shop the exact shadow palette and mascara Lingis used to achieve the look.
The Voice: Kelly Clarkson Watched This Contestant Cover Her Song Like a Proud Mom
It takes a considerable amount of guts to cover a song in front of the original artist, but Kelsie Watts rose to the occasion and absolutely nailed it. The 29-year-old performer auditioned for season 19 of The Voice by singing judge Kelly Clarkson's song "I Dare You," leaving Clarkson herself in awe of her soaring vocals. As soon as Watts hit a series of whistle notes, both Clarkson and fellow judge Gwen Stefani slammed the red button to turn their chairs around, and Clarkson rose to her feet and watched the contestant finish her performance like a proud mom. "Oh my gosh, you just one-upped me on my own song," Clarkson blurted out when Watts concluded. Needless to say, you can likely guess which judge's team Watts wound up joining for the season.
Nev Schulman's Black Swan Performance on DWTS Is Pure Perfection . . . Literally
Nev Schulman achieved perfection during Dancing With the Stars on Monday . well, he got a perfect score that is. During the Halloween episode, the Catfish star and his partner Jenna Johnson paid tribute to the 2010 thriller Black Swan with their Paso Doble, which was fittingly set to "Black Swan Swan Lake." While Johnson channeled her inner Swan Princess, Schulman went full Black Swan for the number. Yep, the pair received the very first perfect score of the season!

This Is Us Reveals a Shocking Detail About Randall's Birth Mother in Season 5 Premiere
This Is Us is known for its surprising twists, but few compare to the twist about Randall's birth mother Laurel, played by actress Jennifer C. Holmes. While we were originally led to believe that she died of a drug overdose shortly after Randall was born, the season five premiere reveals that she actually survived. During the premiere, we learn a little bit more about Randall's backstory before he gets adopted by Jack and Rebecca. However, when Laurel gives birth in their home, she has a relapse and takes heroin to cope with the pain of childbirth. In a heartbreaking scene, William watches the emergency medical technicians try and fail to revive her on the floor.
Is Clare Crawley a "Good" Bachelorette? That's Turning Out to Be a Complicated Question
With Clare Crawley's stint on The Bachelorette already almost over, the big question that remains is whether or not she's been a good bachelorette. Has it even been good TV? On the one hand, there does seem to be something of a double standard that's behind the criticisms of Clare — as there all too often is during Bachelorette seasons. ADVERTISEMENTUnfortunately, though, that dignity doesn't extend through all of Clare's season, which is what makes it so frustrating to watch at times. It's hard to get invested — or believe that they'll last far beyond filming — when that's all the "story" we're getting.

The Uncomfortable Moment That Got Zach J. Sent Home From The Bachelorette
Tuesday's episode of The Bachelorette is filled with major (and somewhat expected) twists, but the most unexpected moment actually had nothing to do with Dale or Tayshia — it was about why Clare suddenly sent Zach Jackson home. Clare brought Zach J. on the one-on-one date, where they went to get pedicures and spa treatments. After they spend some (slightly awkward) time relaxing by the pool, the really uncomfortable moment happens. Clare leans in to kiss Zach, but he doesn't lean in.

NXIVM Leader Keith Raniere Has Been Sentenced to 120 Years in Prison
Image Source: HBOKeith Raniere was sentenced to 120 years in prison on Oct. 27, the United States Attorney's Office of the Eastern District of New York confirmed on Twitter. The leader of the NXIVM cult was found guilty of federal sex trafficking, extortion, obstruction, and racketeering charges back in June 2019, but his sentencing was delayed several times due to the shutdown of courtrooms resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. NXIVM was originally founded by Raniere and Nancy Salzman in the 1990s, but a 2017 New York Times investigation uncovered the horrifying truths of the cult. The cult has since served as the focus for two documentary series: HBO's The Vow, which premiered in August, and Starz's Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult, which premiered in October. Clare Bronfman, one of NXIVM's financial backers, was sentenced to 81 months in September, while former members Salzman, Allison Mack, and Lauren Salzman are still awaiting sentencing.

The hidden cost of the Peanuts holiday specials moving from ABC to AppleTV+
But it likely also means that Great Pumpkin, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and A Charlie Brown Christmas will no longer air on ABC, their broadcast home since 2001. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown will be free for two days. If you subscribe to AppleTV+ you can watch Great Pumpkin as many times as you want this Halloween without fear. Thus, as long as the Peanuts specials aired on ABC, nearly everybody in the US had access to them. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown might just be a harbinger of what’s to come in that regard.
Kim Kardashian's tasteless birthday photos instantly became a copypasta meme

Netflix's 'Holidate' is a silly, sexy good time
Late October is certainly premature for Christmas festivities (unless you are a department store), but Netflix's first holiday movie of 2020, Holidate, is evergreen. “Human beings aren’t meant to be alone on holidays,” Jackson says urgently, with big Love Actually “at Christmas you tell the truth” energy. The holidate concept is but the latest installment of our favorite rom-com trope: The fake relationship. But in Holidate, this is just absurd enough to feel a little tongue-in-cheek and make us laugh more than cry. On their inaugural New Year's holidate, Sloane roasts romantic comedies for their predictability, calling them "cockamamie."

What is Shudder? Everything you need to know about the horror streaming platform.
When it comes to TV and movies, we are most definitely in the age of the streaming service. Although the streaming service markets itself for fans of "thrillers, suspense, and horror," the latter is the genre it's probably best known for. The platform has hundreds of horror movies, around a third of which fall into its Original/Exclusive category, with more being added on a regular basis. We finished last year with the best-reviewed horror movie of the year (Tigers Are Not Afraid) and new horror series of the year (Creepshow)."

Filmsplaining: How ‘Rebecca’, ‘The Haunting Of Hill House' And 'Bly Manor’ Turn Houses Into Major Characters
This article contains spoilers from ‘Rebecca’ ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ and ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’. Manderley, Hill House and Bly Manor are perfectly splendid spooky settings for horror and gothic romances to play out, but are they merely houses?

Hill House grips Olivia, makes her believe that her children aren’t safe in the outside world. There were no ghosts haunting Bly Manor before Bly’s ownership transformed Viola.
Netflix Is Developing A Live-Action 'Assassin's Creed' Series With Ubisoft
Sharpen your hidden blades and pull up your hoods: Ubisoft and Netflix announced that a live-action Assassin's Creed series is officially in development. Whispers of an Assassin's Creed collaboration between Netflix and Ubisoft have been around since 2016, when Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced that the game company was in talks with the streaming service on an unnamed, but potentially Assassin-y project. In 2017, Castlevania producer Adi Shankar confirmed that Ubisoft tapped him to produce an Assassin's Creed anime, but did not confirm at the time if that project was for Netflix specifically. Going by the reaction to the Assassin's Creed movie, some of those options may be better than others. There isn't a lot of information right now, so the real Assassin's creed absolutely applies: Nothing is true; everything is permitted.
