Blind Item #2

Stalkers are common, but death threats are not. This A list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner/nominee has received dozens of death threats prior to the launch of her new movie and she has a huge security team paid for by the movie studio.

Brie Larson??

Brie larson

rosie riveter said...

Wow. People really need to find their chill when it comes to the stronger sex

Nutty_Flavor said...

Brie has made an idiot of herself in the publicity for this film.

Notagoodscreenname said...

I thought of her. But why would anyone want to kill her? She's not A-list either imo.

Notagoodscreenname said...

@nutty_flavor. How'd she do that?

Nutty_Flavor said...

She overdid the social justice element, turning off a large part of the potential viewing audience.

I think a strong woman as the main character in a superhero film is by nature a social justice statement.

But when you make part of the audience feel unwelcome, you put the producers' investment in jeopardy and take the focus away from all your co-workers' efforts.

MDAnderson said...

I’m not sure about death threats but the movie has been a target of review bombing. Brie is also kind of sulky and takes herself way too seriously.

rosie riveter said...

Lol

rosie riveter said...

@social justice element
I want one day without all these fucking trigger phrases

Unknown said...

She needed a butt double. Boring ass white girl flat as a pancake.

Londoner said...

Death threats? Because she triggered a few limp dicked snowflakes who have trouble getting laid? Pathetic.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Oh, I agree entirely that she does not deserve death threats.

But I find her an unappealing character. And when the movie bombs because she's running her mouth, studios will be less likely to make another superhero movie with a female lead character.

A bunch of little girls who might have been inspired by this movie won't get to see it because Brie Larson has pissed off their dads. Great work Brie.

Unknown said...

Sigourney Weaver been kicking ass over 40 years. She’s liberal and keeps her mouth shut. Brie is just young and dumb and shitting the money bed is pretty fucking dumb

Brian Van said...

It's incredible that someone is getting death threats and that anyone thinks we all care about their own opinion/approval of the subject of those threats.

"Well, I don't like her."

If you're not making an argument that she said something or did something that earned the threats, which is an argument no one wants to hear anyway, then what use does that opinion have here?

The story is that our society is a kill factory.

Huckleberry said...

Brie Larson sounds right. That's pretty sad. Comic book fans are lunatics.

Nutty is right about her botching this opportunity. This week she basically said that the movies she makes aren't for white men. Really stupid thing to say days before your blockbuster comic book movie comes out.

Davina David said...

This does not pass the Jussie Smelltest. Studio manufactured publicity. Nobody cares that she's a Basic Bitch Superhero. Trump supporters don't care. It's just stupid. She was a girl and was knocked down when the tried to play Little League with the boys and the boys were mean but she grew stronger...blah...blah...blah. We get it. We've heard and seen the story a million times in every laundry detergent commercial. Nobody cares.

Halloweenie said...

Tiny dick incels threw baby-man fits over Wonder Woman too and that movie did fine. Infact the more basement dwelling baby men cry the more women rally to a movie. So I hope the incels keep being irrationally threatened . They are also crying white tears about Taylor Swift’s new fantastic interview with Elle magazine. Bless their little hearts.

Halloweenie said...

Ps one of the weak men who said Wonder Woman would flop is our very own Enty the entrail. xoxo

Notagoodscreenname said...

Interesting. I have nooo interest in seeing this movie. Never did.

Unknown said...

Baby why you so angry. Give us a smile.

Flashy Vic said...

Death threats or publicity stunt?

What better way to rally people behind the star of a movie which is previewing about as well as a dumpster fire full of dogshit.

Sarton Bander said...

Disney are desperate enough to do something like this.

longtimereader said...

There are a lot of pathetic incels who get upset with a sucessful woman unfortunately.

hothotheat said...

^ this. Particularly one who has spoken out about #metoo movement.

Unknown said...

A lot of pathetic young starlets shitting the money bed.

J said...

Publicity stunt. She disinvited men from her movie.

Serena Rodriguez said...

So men are vampires and now need invites to do anything? Come on. Momo says that’s dumb.

drkdragon777 said...

Damn! The venom is strong in the comments today

BayAreaGirl said...

So the GamerGate & Incell crowd is upset that Brie refused to wear that ridiculous bikini costume from the comics and that she (rightfully) criticized male movie critics for the gross way they write about female characters? Let's not forget these critics are the same a-holes who were sexualizing Elastigirl. Brie's got flaws, but she has a very good point here.

Florin said...

The Captain Marvel movie is going to do just fine. It's on track for a $150 million opening. Haters can review bomb it all they want, the movie will be a financial success.

Brayson87 said...

Yeesh, what do people have against Brie Larson, she's always seemed pretty cool in other roles.
As for death threats, I'd imagine those are in fact pretty common for any star, maybe there was more substance to the ones she was getting.

Brayson87 said...

You've got to wonder about people who have issues with attractive women in tight outfits running around a screen, like wasn't that the jackpot plan all around? Or do they prefer beefcake guys in tight outfits?

Flashy Vic said...

I've a feeling any death threats were sent by the same Klansmen who sent the death threats to Jussie Smollett.

Do Tell said...

And Taylor Swift's stalker was just caught breaking into her building. Frightening days.

BayAreaGirl said...

@Flashy Vic - Do a Google search and you'll find the Incells spewing hatred against her. She's doesn't need to fake a death threat--it's a Marvel movie--the studio has a huge PR budget. Unlike Jussie she's got projects lined up.

Like Johnny Depp, it looks like lot of people are using the Jussie Smollet situation to silence actual victims.

rosie riveter said...

Ugh. Good point.
This is ridiculous.
There is exactly a ONE HUNDRED PERCENT CHANCE I will be going to see this movie now.

J said...

The movie will make a ton of money.

However, less than it would have had the star decided against insulting its core audience. If the studio is cool with that, all's great.

J said...

Hey rosie, when you go to the movie and leave your kid in the car, be sure to crack the windows open a bit.

Duh said...

You’re definitely from the Bay Area. Here you are stepping in shit.

BayAreaGirl said...

I see the Incell & Gamergate crowd is here to spread disinformation, so will paste the quote that has them riled up. You can all decide for yourself. From The Daily Beast article cited above:

“About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male,” Larson told Marie Claire interviewer Keah Brown, a disabled journalist the actress handpicked for the gig. “So, I spoke to Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that. Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive. After speaking with you, the film critic Valerie Complex and a few other women of color, it sounded like across the board they weren’t getting the same opportunities as others. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses.”

The quote was picked up by film sites last month and regurgitated under headlines that emphasized the words “white" and "male” rather than “inclusive,” priming men’s rights activists and so-called “incels” to mobilize online over an imagined slight. To them, a call for expanded access to opportunities for women and people of color in a space traditionally dominated by white men (like a Marvel film’s press junket) is not only an insult—it amounts to a threat to take away what they consider theirs. And at this point, five years after Gamergate established the playbook for how online harassment campaigns target those who advocate for diversity, websites and content creators have caught on, to their benefit.

J said...

The greatest film critic of all time was a female. And she was doing it from the 1950s onward.

No one is stopping women from being film critics. Please cut the bullshit.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Amazing how triggered some of these guys are to spend time harassing her, posting negative reviews for a film not out yet, and otherwise shitting on a superhero movie.
You don't like superhero stories having something to say about society? Be a good person so you can get to heaven and take it up with Stan himself. Not into a movie, of any kind, for any reason? Don't go see it.

Natasha21 said...

Some comic-book fans are taking things too far. I actuall think they have a point. I think she handled the PR terribly and I didn`t like how she came across either.
But I`m sorry guys, You know some sad and lonley young men act like that.
You can hate a movie or an actress but you don`t have to resort to THIS.
It`s just a movie. Chill out.

Brayson87 said...

Honestly, I mean what percentage of the population do those wacko threat guys make up? Like what percentage of a percentage point do they make up? Every dude that likes comics shouldn't be painted with the same brush.

From what I understand Gamergate was a whole other issue with game reviewers being paid off by game companies, and just a few female developers in romantic relationships with game company employees and reviewers that may have worked to their benefit. Like gamers were shocked that couching was a gaming thing too, and that internet game critics had zero integrity. Of course things snowballed from there and it wound up with misogynists and misandrists foaming at the mouth to scream at each other online.

Brayson87 said...

Here's an idea, f*ck Marvel, f*ck DC, stop falling for a two party system. There are all kinds of excellent comics and graphic novels out there.

NateInSoCal said...

I’ll take Hollywood seriously when they stop playing into female empowerment fantasies by making ridiculous movies where women beat the shit out of men, and instead make more movies about real women who’ve actually made a difference in the world, but I guess those films don’t make enough money.

astra worthington said...

I wonder how many cats she has.

Amartel said...

Bogus. This movie apparently sucks and so they're trying to drum up sympathy and outrage with "death threats."

AppleThief4Elliot said...

@Amartel Maybe, but how would all these folks know? And was the harassment of Kelly Marie Tran justified by the new Star Wars movies not being as good as the first trilogy or as bad as the prequels? This is a real thing, and it may not be proportionately that many people, but they're very loud and apparently have lots of free time.

Tiredallthetime said...

Well shes about to be. Shes also a fairly recent oscar winner so that should put her up a bit higher on the list.

AListDiva said...

Are people really that sad and pathetic they revolve their whole lives around comic book characters?! Are these all 40 some year old men living in their mom's basements?

Lucky13 said...

@Huckleberry

It isn't comic book fans sending her death threats, it's the alt-right losers who call people snowflakes and rant and whine about "SJWs" but are just full of projection of their own faults.

I can't think of anything I've seen Brie in, nor am I interested in this Captain Marvel movie (I'd much rather watch the original Captain Marvel's film on April 5th, since I despise the MCU anyway as just straight garbage compared to the DCEU) but she didn't say anything wrong or inaccurate. She just happens to have spoken truth in a world where incels and MRAs have a louder voice than the more reasonable people in society who agree with her.

Anyway, it's hilarious because while I'd rather not be associated with the NPCs who spout constant shit like "but her emails", "build that wall" and other bullshit when their heroes get indicted, arrested or jailed for criminal activity, their support for the Shazam movie instead means I'm fine with them pumping money into it and actually making themselves useful for once in their pathetic lives.

Bill Beard said...

I bet these are Smollett type "death threats".

Guest777 said...

I agree

dummypants said...

White men can't handle being left out of any conversation. Go Brie!!

hunter said...

She's not hot the costume sucks and there is no sparkle in her eye.

Total dud.

Wonder Woman? Empowering - Gal Godot was hot, the costume was baller and her eyes gleamed with energy.

Brie Larson just doesn't do it for me; too much oatmeal, not enough raisin.

BRAD PITT said...


anyone who thinks Brie Larson isn't hot should watch s1 e1 united states tara

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Beside being wrong about it, @hunter, the fact that your first point is about her hotness is a tell.

Viking Song said...

There's nothing "basic" about White women. The fact black women have to constantly put down White women to makes themselves feel attractive speaks volumes..

As for the INCEL/MRA cowards? All they've proved to women for the last twenty years is that they are vermin, hence why the birth rates have plummeted. It's not a good idea to bite the hand that breeds you..

Depeche Model said...

'Basic white woman' is what an unintelligible ranting, lard-arsed basic black woman, with an atrocious wig collection calls all white women. But you're not racist at all whatsoever.

Get a clue Shaniqua.

memyselfandi said...

It's interesting. I think people underestimate how many women and girls enjoy comic book movies as well. I've gone to see most of them regardless of reviews. I want to see the content for myself. And my daughter loves them so we plan to see it at the drive in tonight.

Regarding death threats, I saw a very interesting scientific paper that measured twitter use by bots before the US Presidential Election. It showed a scatter map of tweets that came from the Left political leaning and the right political leaning that were generated by bots. They were equal on both sides.

Now there may very well be idiots that are piling on to Brie Larson because of the social justice stuff. It is also most likely that twitter wars, and the coverage that it receives from the traditional media (who want to make everything into a soap opera for their ratings) have a large element of non existent people purposefully writing inflammatory posts in order to sow discontent. Judging by how everyone gets enraged by twitter it certainly seems an effective way to promote internal discord.
