Blind Item #3

This foreign born A+ list singer is having no part of the press tour of this movie. She is planning to show up at a premiere or two, but says her commitment to the film stops at acting.

Rhianna and Oceans 8?

Rhianna and the crap Ocean's 8 movie.

I don't care how hard they push that shit, I am not going to see it.

Do Tell said...

I thought they wrote promotional requirements into actors' contracts.

That said, I am also looking forward to skipping this movie.

Vessimede Barstool said...

My take is the rich Arab boyfriend/John means she don't give a fuck any more. Rhianna was always money hungry, constantly recording and touring, anything to turn a buck. Taking parts in shit movies, fucking who she had to for songs. She grew up dirt poor so I get the motivation. I guess she feels those days are behind her for good.

I'd much prefer the answer to this be Celine Dion and Deadpool 2.

DDonna Tarttty said...

To judge by the trailer, a lot of the women in that movie look like they stepped out of Madame Tussaud's. Sandra Bullock worst of all, but Cate's not doing much better (Rhianna and Anne Hathaway look pretty great, to be fair).

I don't know a single woman (or man) who is interested in this movie. I expect it to be one of the biggest flops of the summer. Ha ha, because by naming it "Ocean's 8," it's obvious they were expecting to get a whole new trilogy out of this (8-9-10, right up until "Ocean's 11").

A couple friends of mine have suggested "Ocean's 8" got the green light back when everybody in Hollywood's CIA societal management division thought Hillary's election was in the bag and the full-fledged assault on the white patriarchy would be steaming along unimpeded.

Didn't work out that way at all, and "Ocean's 8" will be the latest victim of a cultural zeitgeist that nobody in Hollywood has any idea how to harness, much less battle effectively. Of course, t's tough when your whole social and moral philosophy is rooted in lies.

Rihanna hasn’t recorded or tour in like 4 years... she’s focusing on her business. Mentioning her boyfriends ethnicity is unnecessary and he has nothing to do with her choices. If she wants to focus on growing her business she has every right. If she doesn’t want to promote a film she has a minimal role in that’s her right.

nonyabusiness said...

Deadpool 2 sucked and Ocean's 8 will flop.

Unknown said...

Newsflash, this movie has been in the works for MANY years... Hillary Clinton and the election has nothing to do with it.... people wanting an all female cast is something that has been demanded for decades. Stop it

Low Key said...

@DDonna, you forgot to mention satan...

Do Tell said...

I doubt people were demanding a female version of Ghostbusters, Ocean's 8 or anything else. For decades, people have been clamoring for original ideas, not more failed pieces of roadkill on the highway of "everybody deserves a chance to play this part."

DDonna Tarttty said...

"SATAN wanting an all female cast is something that has been demanded for decades."

There! Killed two byrds with one rock. ;-)

Considering the first "Oceans 11" movie came out in 2001, "decades" seems a stretch. And who was demanding it? No one I know, and betting the box office this summer makes you a liar as well.

nonyabusiness said...

If it doesn't flop, the reviews will be probably be horrible. Either way, I won't be seeing it. Not interested. Just because there's a bunch of women in a film doesn't mean it will be any good, and I say this as a woman myself. Look at what happened with Ghostbusters. Lmao.

Unknown said...

Nobody has been demanding a female Ocean's movie, lol, just stop. Nobody really wanted the Ocean's movies anyway, going by comments that usually get made about them. "Fluff' is the nicest thing said about them. I liked them for the ensemble factor, and they had their moments, but they ran the well dry on the last one, especially putting Al "There's no scenery I won't chew" Pacino in it.

Most of the women in this flop-to-be are more than capable of carrying a movie, and have in the past. They don't need this movie, except for the "Woo us, we're women!" factor - and that doesn't really make good movies. With the right script, this ensemble could KILL...but looking at the trailers...nah. The script isn't there.

Maybe if Hollywood would take talent like these women, put them in ensemble pieces that play to their strengths, not a political/social agenda, and hire a good scriptwriter and director, they might have something. I looked at the production credits, and the director is known for ...The Hunger Games and ...Big? And this is the other writer's first big movie? They took a lot of chances on the script and direction for a cast with this much firepower. Dang. Who was spreading the cash around that these actresses signed onto this? Or was a bigger, proven name originally attached to it? Was Clooney involved, but backed out? The Ocean's movies are all about the dialog and the action/convoluted plot. Has either of these people shown any talent for that? Seriously, how did they land this movie?

Hollywood just does not make sense anymore, even with their rules. This movie makes no sense, and the trailers show it's gonna flop, hard. Nobody wants it, there's no buzz, and it'll be on iTunes/Netflix for the 4th Of July.

Do Tell said...

There are maybe three actresses in this cast that I can honestly say, "These women don't need to stoop to this level": Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, and Helena Bonham Carter. Sandra Bullock is not that good of an actress, but she is established.

The other actors in this movie, except for Carl Reiner, are people I would expect to be in a POS like this, because they can't carry movies.

nonyabusiness said...

Aside from how terrible it looks from the trailer, one of the other prime reasons I refuse to see the film is solely because of the whole political/social agenda that's attached to it. It's nauseating.

Viking Song said...

Misogynists are hilarious. A woman grew you, risked her life and went through horrendous agony and suffering giving birth to you, went through the sleep deprivation and exhaustion of 24/7 breastfeeding and nappy changing while barely being able to walk to keep you alive, and wasted the best years of her life raising you. Had she aborted you or miscarried, you wouldn't exist because sperm aren't babies. When are you fucking morons going to realise that these films are being made to stir up more hatred against White women in order to bring an end to the White race. Muslims are blowing up kids in stadiums while White "men" sit on computers, vilifying women, Mothers and young girls because they've been brainwashed. You're a laughing stock...

Teachermom said...

As a woman, I don’t want to see an all woman cast. I don’t want to see an all male cast. I want to see a good movie with a good plot with at least average actors and actresses allowing me to escape the craziness of our lives. I like men. I like the banter between men and women, and the banter between women and the banter between men. Would we like His Girl Friday with an all female cast? What about The Philadelphia Story? No, the pairing of Rosalind Russell, Cary Grant, John Stewart, and Kate Hepburn made these movies classics. I am tired of Hollywood thinking we are all idiots that will fall for the “girl power” crap.

Teachermom said...

Cue Anne Hathaway’s predictable “shocked face”.

Chrissy Snow said...

@ DDonna Tarttty


I thought the same as your friends. I also figured shows like Veep, Parks&Rec, Madame Secretary were doing the same thing. Hollywood really tried to do their part in getting Hills the W.

MIssBliss said...

@Ddonna The real reason behind these films is just plain laziness. Why try and do something original when we can rehash something that was successful...and that is why we're seeing these sort of movies. Not because of Hillary, or whatever bizarre political conspiracy.

beebopcowboy said...

you mean "acting" with the quotes.

DDonna Tarttty said...

@Chrissy -- I don't think "Veep" was a particularly flattering portrait of a woman as politician, though I guess it does "normalize" the thought in your head.

"24" had a black president before Obama was elected. "24" had a female president after that. It also did an effective job "normalizing" torture as just another part of the American landscape.

Anybody who thinks this is ONLY about Hollywood laziness is missing the gravy boat. Does anyone actually think an all-female "Ghostbusters" was a safer bet than an all-male reboot? Or overhauling "Wrinkle in Time" (or "Annie" or, for that matter, "24"?) with what we can euphemistically call "non-traditional casting"? How about remaking "Splash" with a merman? "Lord of the Flies," only with private school girls?

Every one of those projects flopped, some of them catastrophically. Do you think the "Splash" or "LotF" re-imaginings are going to make money? I don't. And, failure after failure after failure, you've got to think the bean-counters know it too. So: Why?

Morgan Freeman (R.I.P.) made a tidy living playing Obama before Obama, for that matter. Heck, who wouldn't want Hollywood's fictionalized version of Morgan Freeman as president?

I watched "Parks & Rec" for a year or two, but it ran alongside "Community," which I always found much smarter and funnier. "Madame Secretary" came on after Clinton was named Sec. of State, so that was more art imitating life than the reverse.

It's funny that Freeman played the president in the meteor movie with Téa Leoni, then later produced "Madame Secretary." Such a small circle, that Hollywood! Or maybe "le cercle" is even smaller?

Bubbles said...

Barstool is a racist troll piece of trash. He just wants to talk shit about any Black person as he knows jack shit about Rhianna and how she grew up. He obviously knows nothing about her tour schedule. If he can disparage a person of color on this board, stand back and watch him go.

Has anyone else noticed that a lot of the newer commenters here seem to have a racist bent anytime they have something to say involving a person of color? The comments definitely aren't what they were in the old days......hell, 18 months ago.

nonyabusiness said...

Stop paying attention to them Bubbles. They say racist things on purpose to get a rise out of people like you. And I don't know what kind of comments you're expecting here of all places. It's a gossip site for goodness sake.

Weekittylass said...

Why is the expression person of color pc but colored person is not? It is the exact same thing.

Weekittylass said...

Barstool is an equal opportunity bigot. He hates everybody. I have no problem with that. He doesn’t affect my life one way or another and at least he’s honest about who he is. Anyone who gets twisted over comments on the internet is a fool. Grow up and grow a pair.

T. W. said...

That is not an all female cast. Sandra Bullock is a male. Just look at Sandra and you will see.

rosie riveter said...

But even on a gossip site we shouldn't have to hear racist garbage.

rosie riveter said...

Except its not.

rosie riveter said...

If she's indeed male, I want to take her home to meet my parents. They will be THRILLED

J F said...

Who the fuck cares what triggers your pansy ass. So, she's fucking a camel jock for cash. A nasty sand niqqer for diamonds... he's just another towel head ... so take your pious attitude and shove it up your crusty/dusty hole... BITCH

Bleu said...

You've seen the entire movie if you've seen the trailer. And gee. Like there's any suspense whether any Ocean's gang will pull off the heist.

Bleu said...

Colored person is archaic reference to Black Americans pre-1970s. People of color refers to anyone who is not caucasian, which includes far more than Black Americans.

Amy Casey said...

Don Cheadle's awful 'cockney' accent in Ocean's Eleven put me off the rest
...I'm from London. It was on par with Dick Van Dyke's take on the accent in Mary Poppins. It ruins a film for me.

Unknown said...

@Bubbles - 4chan got a hold of this site, and their slimiest "special" snowflakes have been shitting up the comments for a while now.

Rosie, if you don't want to see/hear racist garbage, don't get on here. There are racist people on all sites, you won't use anything if it affects you *that* much. Just ignore it like the rest of us do.

Cee Kay said...

@Viking Take your meds FFS.

Remie Ross said...

News flash: nobody has been demanding an all female cast! All female casts have been pushed on us lately and those movies have all FLOPPED!

Remie Ross said...

Totally agree nonya!

Remie Ross said...

Well said teacher! I think the majority of people would agree with you!

Remie Ross said...

All the black people I know like to be referred to as black people. This "people of color" thing is PC nonsense to make white people feel like they aren't racist! (And ps- I'm part black)!

Remie Ross said...

+1 weekitty! If people are easily offended then just skip over his comments. I don't like everything he says, but I will defend his right to say it!

Mark said...

@DDonna Tarttty maybe you were joking about Ocean's 11 coming out in 2001. That was a remake too. The first was in 1960. They cast for that one hasn't been matched.in any of the remakes.

Anonymous said...

Oceans 8 looks terrible. I’m sure Sarah Paulson is a perfectly lovely person in real life but every single show or movie I’ve seen her in she’s bored with herself. It’s patently ridiculous. I mean, Marcia Clark??

Sara, Making It Work said...

But again, POC refers to major than just black people. Nobody is saying POC if they're referring only to black people. They'd generally just say black people.

Hello, so nice to meet ewe! said...

To judge by the trailer, a lot of the women in that movie look like they stepped out of Madame Tussaud's. Sandra Bullock worst of all, but Cate's not doing much better

Yo wtf is wrong with the cracker

Cail Corishev said...

If you don't see this movie and love this movie, you hate women and are probably a basement-dwelling Nazi. That's what all the best people said about Ghostbusters, so it surely applies again here. Get out there and buy those tickets, to show everyone what a good person you are!

Ervin Thompson said...

Maybe she doesn't want to be around a bunch of fake people? People get tired and look at her co stars and past blinds. I wouldn't either good thing NOW she has enough money to do what she wants.

Hahaha said...

OMG. The comments. Lol-ING. Help me!!

gauloise said...

@unknown saying arab oil baron is like saying russian oligarch, its a fact not a judgment, its talking about the fact he has boodles of cash not condemning for his race. stop seeing racism everywhere. Problem is yours and your projections.

Markerbox said...

The 2001 version was itself a remake.

Why is it every time someone mentions a human's race they are immediately accused by some far left pussyhat snowflake, "You racist."
In what way is the person 'racist', because they mentioned the race?
