Blind Items Revealed #1

October 27, 2016

This A- list mostly movie actress is generally liked by everyone but a studio is getting irritated. They are flying her all over the world to promote a movie and she is also using the time to promote several other projects which is causing her movie promo to get lost in the mix.

Anna Kendrick

Bluh. If this is about her movie w Ben Affleck, I say no amount of publicity will help. It's not her fault the movie may bomb.

Yep said...

It already came out. It debuted at number 1. I think it's made over $100 million world wide. This blind is also bullshit. Ben Affleck kept getting asked about Batman & he talked about that. Justin kept getting asked about doing a new album after this & what it was like working with Woody Allen (really good idea to talk about Woody when you are promoting a kids movie!) Enty doesn't have any blinds about those 2 making execs mad. She did interviews with zero mention of her book & she's worked her ass off on PR. I don't see how this could be true

Enty may actually have a believable Kendrick blind for a change. I base this on Table 19 being pushed from Jan to March since PP3 is now starting to film in January. Maybe they did get irritated and decided to have Table 19 pushed so it wouldn't cause schedule hold ups on an already late to start movie

RandomGuy said...

Yep, you assume people are rational. This past week disproves that optimism.

Yep said...

Good point! I can see it being true because execs in Hollywood don't have a great track record with treatment of women. I suppose it's believable that they would ignore Ben talking Batman & Justin talking about working with Woody Allen, but focus on a small mention of Anna's book. I still don't buy it because she's worked her ass off for these movies doing a crazy PR schedule, but I guess execs are not always rational!

I saw the story about Anna & Rebel arguing over promotion for Table 19 & pushing shooting on Pitch Perfect back. I thought it was BS, but Table 19 getting moved sure makes it look like that rumor was true. Now I'm starting to wonder what other rumors are true.

i don't really buy those rumors anymore. i read an interview Anna did just last week where she said if she could have any woman serenade her it would be Rebel. that's not a comment she makes if the two are at odds with each other. it's just click bait to attract attention from the large PP fanbase.

Table 19 got pushed back because January is traditionally a dumping ground for bad movies, so it has a better chance to do well in March. plus if they want Anna to do any PR for it, it makes more sense to release it when she'll be available, as she'll be filming in January. it's a no brainer.

as for this dumb blind, it's a joke. like you said above Yep, i rarely heard Anna talking about her book during either promo for Trolls or The Accountant. i only saw it come up twice on Fallon and Ellen when they brought it up, but that's how talk shows work. if you're the main guest, usually you do two segments, one about what you're up to lately, and then you do one about the movie your promoting. Anna didn't do anything unusual in any of her PR. in fact, she did way more than was expected of her.

Probably more to do with some dickhead producer on the film that wants to badmouth her because she wouldn't sleep with him.

Normally JD we're on the same page but I'm gonna have to disagree on the RW/AK feud front. I will however concede that it is unlikely to have started and be held to by the AK side.

But if you go back and read her comment about RW it's not an AK comment, it's somewhat forced and not genuine. She starts down a road to say something nice, realizes it's not nice enough, and course corrects quickly and clumsily which is not her norm. I think the PR team for PP basically said "Look, we're 4 months behind and rumors are flying. You need to slip something in somewhere to defuse this"

I think a lot of the rumors are, likely Rory said a long time ago, coming from an outside source trying to mess with stuff. If you look at the recent "Anna and Rebel are fighting about shooting dates" they source the same place that was saying she'd actually left PP3. So someone is definitely screwing around and using that source to spread shit.

jd said...

yeah i forgot to mention that, about those rumors coming from the same outlet that has all the "Anna has left PP3" crap, which we all know is false. i still don't know why these fringe sites keep reporting that. i get that their sole purpose is making up click bait rumors to get hits, but I mean c'mon, if Anna ever left PP3 it would be huge news covered by all the major outlets, and it's not. i really wish google would do something to reduce those sites from showing up so often. they aren't the least bit reputable or legit. it's like you and i can start up our own website and just make stuff up and it would be on google news. that's fucked up.

as for AK/RW, don't get me wrong, i'm not saying the two are best buds. they're not. but I don't believe they "hate" each other either. and there was certainly no argument over shooting dates because actors have zero say in that.

RandomGuy said...

That particular site isn't even an entertainment site it's a gaming site (GamenGuide) yet a number of wannabe clickbait sites are picking up items on there. Makes me wonder if someone is using meme theory and testing how much penetration they get by this method

'The Accountant' was a decent date movie, moved right along, never looked at my watch, thats a good sign. One complaint-a little heavy on the flashbacks but if a sequel rolled around I would go. ANYBODY could have been in Anna's role. Affleck was the draw.

Zilla1 said...

Why would anyone leaving the cast of a Pitch Perfect sequel be "huge" news anywhere or to anyone outside of insulated PP fanatics?

RandomGuy said...

Giving up 6 mill and back end when your last couple years of movies have been mostly indy crapfests? That's sort of big news...in a "watching the impending car wreck" sort of way

Brian said...

FWIW, I recently listened to her interview with Chris Hardwick on the Nerdist, and they talked about her book quite a bit and barely mentioned Trolls.
