Blind Items Revealed #2

October 24, 2018

This movie studio went so far as to throw around some "junkets" to a couple of their favorite trades to see if they could come out of the gate with stellar reviews about this new biopic being released. Not even with that money being thrown around could they get anything close to a positive review for the new movie about a singer.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Well they sure as hell couldn't throw young men at them this time.

still no Esquire article on Singer

. Losing hope.

Was supposed to be released by halloween

Aquagirl said...

I was watching some old Queen footage on line last night. Besides the whole Singer situation, who would wanna see this movie anyway when you still have easy access to the real deal on line? And the whole thing about white-washing his sexuality? Just no.

Brayson87 said...

Esquire is like a closeted magazine, just come out already!

kitty kamui said...

I agree with Aquagirl


Also wasn't another A+ celeb male supposed to be exposed by this same Esquire issue? I remember that being alluded to on here not long ago...

Aquagirl said...

@notthisagain, Do you think there’s any chance that the article got pulled? He started denying the contents weeks ago. Any chance Esquire caved to his lawyers?

Aquagirl said...

@Kitty: Are you thinking about Hugh Jackman? There was a blind about him recently but can’t recall if it was related to the Esquire article.

notthisagain said...

@kitty

Hugh Jackman is the A+ actor exposed in the article, along with Glee’s Matthew Morrison

a rapist is going to have the #1 movie in the US this weekend. Sick

Guesser said...

Hasn't there been several articles about several different people that mysteriously disappeared, threats of lawsuits,exchanging stories. This was very specific,though, not just hinted at.

hothotheat said...

My guess is they got served with legal papers so pulled the story - for now.

sandybrook said...

@Not after you asked about the Singer story yesterday, I went looking online. Singer never said when the article was coming out he thought it would be "around" the time the movie came out. I couldnt find anything from Esquire even acknowledging the story, so its Singer saying something that could be b.s. Magazines are usually put on sale Tuesdays and Thursdays and put online about the same time.

kitty kamui said...

Hugh Jackman, yeah. Thanks aquagirl and notthisagain for filling in those blanks for me.

This is my first REAL commenting (besides a your turn), but I've been reading around for a few months. I got started on here from the Himmm blind about Dan Schneider lol

Guesser said...

Instead of going to the film, watch a Queen Concert and a documentary on your giant Tv,and spend the money you saved on some good takeout. Don't let it be #1, at least.

@Aquagirl & Guesser

+1000!

Why do we need a movie about Mercury that gives us nothing new? We have his performances to watch, we don't need some millennial darling reinterpreting for us, thanks. Mercury is already out there for everyone to enjoy.

Lonely Bastard said...

Never mind all that, but does anyone know an Indonesian casino site that I can bombard with some amazing quotes?

I'm at my wit's end wondering where I could possibly find such things.

B626 said...

Well Jimmy Fallon said the movie was FANTASTIC!

sandybrook said...

The best Queen performance EVER was Live Aid they blew away every, single act at Wembley watch it on YouTube. Eff the movie, it's trash.

Lonely Bastard said...

@Sandy. Yeah that was a hell of a performance, but blowing away the opposition at Live Aid isn't exactly a high bar you hurdle. Everyone else -bar Bowie - sucked balls. If it wasnt for Quenn (& Bowie) then the whole thing would have been long forgotten.

Lonely Bastard said...

Christ,my fat fingers are wreaking fucken havoc today.

Its 'to' not 'you' and 'Queen' not 'Quenn', obviously.

sandybrook said...

Maybe so @Bastard but he really stepped it up for his 1/2 hour. By then I'd really had enough of Queen too. Not much hard rock a lot of performane showcase.

Lonely Bastard said...

@Sandy, I believe they were only meant to get 15 mins but had said they would only do the gig if they could bring in their own sound guys and Freddie just ignored the frantic signalling for them to come off when their time was up.
I can't recall who followed them but imagine standing there waiting to go on while watching that. Id've just gone home.

Unknown said...

The only thing I remember about 1985 live aid is Simon LeBon hitting ghat bum note.

Queen sounded distorted. They were so loud because their sound guy found and removed the limiter from the stadium system. It was too loud. That’s why people remember. It didn’t sound *that* great.

Unknown said...

That bum note. Jesus fucking autocorrect

Lonely Bastard said...

Just googled, it was the Jagger)Bowie 'Dancing in the Streets' video which debuted after Queen, then Simple Minds, who can barely reach 'dog shit' level on their best day. I reckon that I could blow off Simple Minds by playing "the Sash My Father Wore" on a recorder and a tambourine strapped to my knee.

DDonna Tarttty said...

I was at Live Aid in London and recall having a very good time and seeing some amazing performances, including Queen, U2, Elvis Costello and a great band nobody remembers called Status Quo.

I'm sure it's cool and hip to throw garbage at Live Aid now, but at the time it was a magical and wonderful event.

sandybrook said...

bwahaha @Bastard

Dannette said...

I don't know about cool and hip, but it's certainly a curious mind that would seek to evaluate whether or not Live Aid was a well executed idea or something that did more harm than good for the intended poors. It was and continues to give fraudulent philanthropic type credibility to Geldof bono et al. I'm sure it was a lovely concert tho.

Junebug said...

I remember Status Quo. They were good!

HDNYC said...

@lonelybastard lol you might not like Simple Minds, but...you didn’t forget about them

Lindy said...

They always have junkets, I used to write on film, so I’m not sure what the point of this blind is.

Halloweenie said...

It deserves to flop. They also straight washed the hell out of it. Anyways , Fox News has a story up about how Hugh Jackman is good friends with Ivanka Trump and her hubby, kushner . You know, Hugh , the one enty heavily implies is a total fraud who uses his false family guy veneer to use young men ? Yes that Hugh Jackman, good friend of Brian Singer ( and trumpies fave daughter too!) . So many good buddies everywhere. So if you ever wonder why zero percent of these abusers and pedos are facing any consequences ..... just remember it really does pay to have friends in high places. Oh unless of course youre black like Bill Cosby. Then you'll go to jail.

Jen Ty said...

"And the whole thing about white-washing his sexuality? " Well then there was really no point making the movie if it isn't honest and worse boring.

And hey it took decades to put Cosby in jail. He had cover for decades.
