Collectively as a society, we hate listening to ourselves on recordings and delete half of the 150 images from a selfie photoshoot because they’re just not good enough. And I know how much it sucks to see yourself on TV (ew), but Rupert Grint just took it to a whole new level.

The actor, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise, just watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone FOR THE FIRST TIME last week.

If my calculations are correct (they are), then that means he waited 17 years to casually grace himself with his own presence in one of my favorite movies ever. Omg.

Hey, Rupert, I’m free if you wanna catch a HP marathon! While I slide into his DMs to arrange this, let’s get to it:

Snake drama, not Taylor Swift-related.

This one’s a biggie. *finishes sip of tea* OK, so the latest Fantastic Beasts trailer dropped this week, and the biggest reveal that came out of it is that Nagini, Voldy’s pet snake, was once a woman. However, Korean actress Claudia Kim plays the character, and the internet blew up in outrage. First, Rowling told everyone that she was holding this secret for 20 years (which fans were unhappy with). Later, as the issue went more viral, Rowling defended herself with the origin story of the world Nagini. Buuuut she dug herself in a hole, once again, when people clapped back saying this was a poorly-researched representation.

Toy Story 4 will turn us into emotional wrecks.

Who am I kidding though, I’m already an emotional wreck. This week, Tim Allen compared Toy Story 4 with Avengers: Infinity War, which is….. concerning. The voice of our beloved hero Buzz Lightyear said, “If you’re at all a superhero fan, Infinity War—I’m a big superhero fan—that didn’t seem like it was going to work but, it was a lot of vignettes that all made sense.” He also went on to say that going through the first read was so emotional for him that he could barely get through it. Oh god, this will be worse than Toy Story 3. The movie is due in theaters on June 21, 2019.

Reunited and it feels so good.

Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph will be back together in Bless the Harts, a straight-to-series animated comedy on Fox. The show is about “a group of Southerners who are always broke as a joke, and struggling for the American dream of status and wealth. What they don’t realize is that they’re already rich, in friends, family and laughter.” Is this the show’s logline or a summary of my life?

Everyone’s getting Wicked.

Dear Ozians, time to get pumped! Original Wicked leads Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith are returning to the Broadway stage together to host NBC’s A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway. The special will air on October 29 at 10 P.M., just in time for Halloween. The pair will perform songs alongside Ariana Grande, Pentatonix, the current cast of the Broadway musical, and more. Yaaaas.


Own a piece of The Office.

Fans of The Office can bid on actual props from the show, ranging from Dwight’s Sales Associates Association Award 2008 to a framed photo of Stanley and his wife. This is kind of weird because some of the items are just straight up office supplies and don’t have a meaning behind it, like a magnifying glass and paper tray. Not found in the auction: Dwight’s stapler stuck in Jell-O.

This would be a Savior to TWD franchise.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the actor who plays The Walking Dead‘s Negan, has been talking with TWD chief Scott Gimple for a standalone Negan movie for about for TWO years. Morgan is certainly on board, and the movie could potentially be about Negan before the zombie apocalypse happened. Please, OH PLEASE, give this a swing. You bloody won’t regret it! OK, I’ll stop now.


@Tom Holland, help us out.

The mysterious title for the upcoming Avengers movie is still under wraps, but the cloud of secrecy has now become a meme—ya know, for reasons like how we already know the title of the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, which comes out after Avengers 4. We’re waitingcoming up with some ideas for ourselves, and are also disappearing. It’s even showing up in eyeshadow palettes. The new title is supposed to release sometime after the Captain Marvel trailer reveal, and now it’s certainly after!!!!


Twitter is the new Indeed.

Among all of the Nagini drama (see above) Macaulay Culkin decided to chime in with some flattery that turned into the first couple of sentences of a cover letter. But the best part? Every time he identifies himself in the tweets, he writes, “(From Home Alone: The Movie)” as if we didn’t know. I’m still laughing about it.


Until next time, my beautiful trash babies!
