New trailers: Fresh Prince reunion, Breach, Black Beauty, Happiest Season and more

TFW you have to work on Sunday but all you want to do is keep bingeing Season 4 of The Crown. I watched the first two episodes and I can’t decide who I love most: Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth, Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher, or Emma Corrin as Diana. Also Josh O’Connor’s Prince Charles continues to be a fascinating not-quite-antihero. Can’t wait to dig in for more (literal) palace intrigue.

In the meantime, I did warn y’all a couple weeks back that we were sliding into holiday movie szn, and, among this week’s trailers are a holiday rom-com with Kristen Stewart, as well as an update of a classic YA novel, and a Bruce-Willis-kicks-space-alien-ass offering. Plus the cast of the Fresh Prince are back together. Versatility ftw!

happiest season

I feel like this movie could easily become ensnared in romcom cliches without strong performances from its stars, so when I saw Dan Levy in the cast I was immediately reassured. Abby (Kristen Stewart) and Harper (Mackenzie Davis) are a couple in love planning to spend the holidays with Harper’s family, except —plot twist— she’s not out to them yet. “This holiday everyone’s secrets are coming out” is the movie’s tagline and I’m holding out hope it adds something new to the romcom genre. Happiest Season debuts on Hulu November 25th.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion

Ah the nostalgia may push me over the edge here. I was smack in the middle of the target audience for the original run of The Fresh Prince in the early 1990s and seeing the cast together again, all grown up, is warming my cold Gen-X heart. Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, and the rest of the cast — including the original Aunt Viv, you guys!!— remember the late James Avery, who played Will’s Uncle Phil. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion hits HBO Max November 19th.

Inside Pixar

A new series on Disney Plus looks at the people who work at Pixar, the studio responsible for lovely animated films that make parents of young children cry (looking at you, Finding Nemo, Inside Out, and Toy Story). Is it a little self-serving for Disney, which owns Pixar, to run a “look at how cool this company is” on its Disney Plus channel? Eh, maybe. I’m still going to watch, and hopefully find out who exactly is responsible for my parental trauma once and for all. Inside Pixar is now streaming.

Breach

A plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population (eek) and 300,000 survivors, including Bruce Willis and Thomas Jane, are headed to “New Earth” in a very safe spacecraft where nothing will go wrong and no one will turn into a hideous drooling space monster. Haha I jest, of course, and since this is a Bruce Willis movie you know there will be gunfire and witty quips sprinkled throughout the mayhem. I got a strong Aliens vibe from the trailer but there’s some black goo involved that

Police shut down wedding and Airbnb house party in ‘blatant’ breach of COVID regulations

Police have shut down a wedding attended by more than 200 guests and a separate Airbnb house party that were both found to be in flagrant breach of coronavirus restrictions.

Officers were first called to a venue on Old Kent Road in south-east London last Sunday night by residents who feared the address was being burgled.

It turned out a wedding party was being held and it appeared those attending the ceremony had closed the shutters at the front of the venue in an attempt to mask the celebration.

The event was dispersed and two of the guests were advised that they had been reported for consideration of a fixed penalty notice.

Detective Superintendent Nicky Arrowsmith, said: “This event was a blatant breach of the regulations and could have been a breeding ground for transmitting the virus.

“There were over 200 people inside, no social distancing and indeed no attempts to make the venue Covid secure, in line with the Government guidelines.

Another person was slapped with a £10,000 fine after officers crashed a party at an Airbnb attended by more than 50 people which included bouncers, DJs, and a buffet.

Police were called to reports of a party at a flat in the Angel Meadows area of Manchester at around 11.20pm on Friday.

The organiser was handed a fine for the breach of coronavirus legislation – one of the first issued since Tier 3 restrictions were introduced.

Assistant Chief Constable Mabs Hussain, of Greater Manchester Police, added: “This party was a blatant disregard of the rules and for public health.

“It is totally unacceptable in the current crisis the whole world is facing and is not what we want our officers to be spending their time doing.

Manchester went into the nation’s highest alert level at midnight on Friday.

In Greater Manchester, infection rates are among the highest in the country.

Fashion Nova Sues Rich the Kid Over Alleged Contract Breach

Rich the Kid has been slapped with another lawsuit.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the 28-year-old rapper is being sued for allegedly breaching his contract with Fashion Nova. The fast-fashion brand claims it inked an endorsement deal with Rich back in 2018, adding to their long list of celebrity ambassadors. Fashion Nova says it paid the “Breakin U Off” artist a $100,000 advance for a number of promotions, including mentioning the brand on social media as well as giving it a shout-out in at least one of his songs.

Fashion Nova claims Rich had agreed to do the promotions between October and December 2018, but never followed through. The brand says it suffered a huge financial loss as a result of Rich’s noncompliance. It is now seeking $2.1 million in damages.

Shortly after news of the lawsuit broke, Rich shared a series of Instagram stories that addressed the matter.

“Shit is crazy mothafuckas tryna sue a n***a left and right,” he wrote in a post. “It’s time for us to promote ownership not that slave shit.”

Back in February, Blueprint Artist Management sued Rich for $3.5 million for allegedly violating the terms of his contract. The Blast reports the plaintiffs were granted a default judgement earlier this month, and Rich was ordered to pay his managers $1.1 million.

Fashion Nova Is Reportedly Suing Rich The Kid For Breach Of Contract

Fashion Nova has become one of the most popular and successful clothing brands of the past few years thanks largely to its ambassador program, which trades on influencers’ social media clout to increase the brand’s visibility. Fashion Nova has also employed celebrity endorsers to great effect, from Cardi B to Kylie Jenner, ensuring instant recognition among millennials and Gen Z. However, the policy has occasionally backfired as well, at times costing the brand millions due to broken contracts.

The latest celebrity to cut and run on the brand, according to TMZ, is Rich The Kid, who was reportedly paid a $100,000 advance in October 2018 to promote Fashion Nova on social media and in a song. Fashion Nova is now suing Rich for $2.1 million in damages for breach of contract and making false promises after he avoided posting anything Fashion Nova-related on social media for almost two years. Of course, this pretty much falls in line with what we now know to be Rich’s M.O.; the Queens, New York (by way of Atlanta, Georgia) rapper has been subject to a veritable pile-on of lawsuits in the past year thanks to neglecting his legal obligations and failing to pay just about anyone any amount he owes.

The “Plug Walk” rapper was sued by his management company for $3.5 million, sued by his jeweler for an unpaid $250,000 tab, and sued by his landlord for over $300,000 in unpaid rent. Meanwhile, Fashion Nova is also currently chasing Tekashi 69 for $2.25 million after he got locked up two weeks into his deal with the brand. Perhaps Fashion Nova should stick with tried-and-true partners like Cardi B, whose lines with the brand sold-out in a matter of hours, one of them netting over $1 million in profits (which they partnered again to give away during the pandemic).
