The new trailer for Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals may not offer much insight into what the movie is about, but it certainly offers a sense of how you’re meant to feel when you watch it: very, very anxious. What begins as an innocent love story on a snowy New York evening between Susan (Amy Adams) and Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal) quickly segues into a bitter, violent revenge saga playing out across a dusty West Texas landscape.
The thriller is constructed as a story-within-a-story.
Following Wednesday’s heated third and final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump attended the 71st annual Alfred E. Smith dinner in New York City on Thursday night.
The white-tie event, which has traditionally been a vehicle for presidential candidates to make lighthearted jokes about each other in a sort of genteel roast, is the last public appearance that both candidates will appear at together before the November election.
Because the dinner is a fundraiser for Catholic charities, it’s hosted by the Archbishop of NYC; this year it was hosted by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who had the particularly choice task of sitting between Clinton and Trump during the formal dinner.
The tension of the affair provided plenty of opportunities for the folks at home and online to sound off with their reactions.
Many of them found humor in the awkwardness of the situation after a contentious debate, while others had hot takes about the dinner guests’ reactions to the jabs that Hillary and Donald were exchanging.
During the golden era that was Hollywood in the 1950s and ’60s, the work of photographer Sid Avery often appeared in the pages of outlets like LIFE and The Saturday Evening Post. But, though his subjects were already icons in their own time—stars like Frank Sinatra and Audrey Hepburn—his approach was something new.
Cher may not be much of a Cher fan, but James Corden has enough enthusiasm for both of them. When the music legend stopped by The Late Late Show on Thursday night, Corden and guest Gal Gadot were thrilled to be in Cher’s presence. While Gadot mostly kept her Wonder Woman cool, Corden started to freak out almost immediately, gushing as he asked about how Cher and Sonny Bono came up with their hit song, “I Got You Babe.”
Cher gamely explained that she and Bono bought a piano for $82 with “only a few keys broken.” Bono would stay up late tinkering with the piano and writing songs and would wake Cher up whenever he needed her to sing a lyric or two.
Bryan Cranston is busy traveling from city to city for the press tour for his new book, A Life in Parts, but apparently not too busy to take the time to try and make the day of an unsuspecting fan.
During a Wednesday stop at the Dallas Love Field airport, the Breaking Bad actor seems to have bought and signed a copy of his memoir before putting it back on display in a Hudson News store.
Bob Dylan took almost a week to acknowledge online that he was awarded a Nobel prize, but removed mention of the prestigious award from his website far more quickly.
A single sentence, “winner of the Nobel prize in literature,” posted on the page for The Lyrics 1961-2012 earlier this week is now gone, according to the Guardian.
It was announced last Thursday in Stockholm that the elusive music legend had won the award, but the singer-songwriter made little public mention of the accomplishment other than the small nod on his website a week later.
