TIFF opened yesterday and last night the premiere of the remake of “The Magnificent Seven” – rave reviews for this western starring Chris Pratt and Denzel. Do I need to say his last name? Washington. The Magnificent Seven opens in theatres Sept. 23.
Opening TODAY “Sully” starring Tom Hanks…it’s the story of Chesley Sullenberger, the pilot who became a hero after landing his jet on the Hudson River – all 155 aboard survived. Directed by Clint. Do I need to say his last name? Eastwood.
And Bruce Springsteen keeps upping the ante on himself – Wednesday’s how in Philly clocked in at four hours, four minutes and 46 seconds – now THAT is the longest show in the US…breaking a record he set just last week. So if he comes to Toronto again – by the time he gets her – you’re going to have to book a couple days off work.
File this under “Are you fricking kidding me?” Bill Cosby is playing the race card now – his lawyers saying racial bias to blame not only in the (multiple) accusations against him but also in the section of the jury pool for his June trial. The thing is – this man has spent decades PREACHING to fellow blacks about personal responsibility for their actions – chastising blacks for making race an excuse – and now this is part of his defense strategy. It’s being denounced as desperate.
