First Look at TED LASSO Season 2

Season 2. July 23. Kindness is making a comeback. #TedLasso​

Golden Globe® winner Jason Sudeikis is Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team—despite having no experience. But what he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with optimism, underdog determination…and biscuits.

There were a bunch of announcements during the Apple Event — which I’m sure I will recap once I’m a bit less groggy from my second COVID shot — but this was the one which made me happiest.

I will be there in July.

BARB & STAR’s Wiig & Mumolo to Write a Movie About Cinderella’s Stepsisters for Disney

Deadline:

Coming off the critical success of Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar, Oscar-nominated writers Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo will reteam on their first adventure with Disney: a live-action untitled Cinderella Evil Stepsisters film. Sources add that at this time it is unknown whether Wiig and Mumolo would also be starring in the film since it’s so early in development. Insiders also add that even if they were to appear in the film down the road, it wouldn’t be as the stepsisters as the plan is for them to be played by younger actresses.

The film is a fairy tale musical comedy that re-imagines the Cinderella classic from the point of view of her infamous evil stepsisters. Spanning their early childhood through the marriage of their universally beloved stepsister and beyond, we follow Anastasia and Drizella Tremaine as they struggle to uphold their family’s legacy.

As someone who absolutely adored the surreal and silly Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar, I will be watching this project with a raised eyebrow.

Up Next in the INDIANA JONES 5 Cast: Mads Mikkelsen!

Deadline:

Following the news Phoebe Waller-Bridge had landed the female lead in the next Indiana Jones movie, Lucasfilm has found Harrison Ford’s next co-star as Mads Mikkelsen is set to join the next installment. James Mangold is taking over directing reins from Steven Spielberg, who still is serving as a producer and is very much involved in various elements of the film. Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel will join Spielberg as producers. John Williams, who has worked on every score in the 40-year-old franchise including its iconic theme, also will return as composer.

Just keep adding all my favorite actors, why don’tcha, Mangold?

A Collection of Recreated Classic Marvel Comics Title Logos

Reagan Ray:

I just started getting into comic books for the first time a few years ago. My son was interested as well, so we started making regular trips to the comic book store (pre-covid, of course). We loved looking at the artwork and lettering of the older comics. And like most lettering, right around the late 90s, it all went to shit. The hand-lettering masterpieces were abandoned for fonts and photoshop effects. With that said, I limited this post to the pre-’00s. I wanted to do something more vintage, but there are just too many from the 80s and 90s that I love. My absolute favorite was seeing all the interpretations of 3D type.

I love these so much, and as I commented to my friend Ross, Disney could just throw each one of these logos as rendered on a shirt with the same color, and I’d have a drawer full of them within minutes of them being purchasable.
