What’s more terrifying than the state of LGBT rights in many parts of the world today? Well, a new film titled PYOTR495 is shining a light on the violent abductions and attacks taking place in Russia, and they need your support in reaching completion today!
The retro-tinged horror stars Alex Ozerov (Orphan Black, Coconut Hero, The History Of Love, Christmas Horror Story) revolves around the attacks which are so often ignored as a result of Russia’s LGBT Propaganda law. A bit about the film:
“Set one evening in present day Moscow, 16 year-old Pyotr is baited by an ultranationalist group known for their violent abductions and attacks bolstered by Russia’s LGBT propaganda law, but Pyotr has a dangerous secret his attackers could never have accounted for.”
PYOTR495 needs your support in its post-production to delivery stages, and has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign with a shop full of perks and incentives to help the production reach a solid completion and raise the funding it needs. Check out the trailer below — and support the film HERE today! I mean, if everyone who reads this donates 5 bucks, we can all band together in saying Suck it, Putin!
Pretty (but deadly) in fuchsia! Gaga will be playing Elizabeth and “she owns the hotel and she is sort of a very wealthy social doyenne who is consumed with art and fashion and people”. Will you be watching?
…and it starts shooting next month! Showtime President David Nevins reassured fans that the show is happening for suresies and SOON!
“I want it as badly and as soon as the biggest fans in the world want it,” he told journalists during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour. “I’m hoping we make 2016. It’s not clear. It’s ultimately going to be in [series co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost’s] control. They’re going to shoot the whole thing and then they’ll start posting. Bottom line is, I’ll take it when they’re ready with it … but I’m hoping sooner rather than later.”
OMG, we can’t wait! We can’t wait! The show may also run longer than was originally anticipated!
They plan to shoot it as one giant block, which means they’ll be cutting it into discrete episodes in the editing room once they’re finished. The series was originally supposed to run for nine episodes, but Nevins won’t be sure how many blocks he’ll be given until filming is complete.
I”m so ready for some Madchen Ammick glamour!
YUP! Looks about right! Except the eyebrow game is more on-point in real life! Sophia Eggleston is looking for her piece of EMPIRE’s “Cookie,”, claiming the character was based of her mess of a life!
As reported by Page Six, Eggleston has filed a 50-page lawsuit against Fox and Empire co-creator for $300 million alleging that they stole her life story. In other words, she says, she’s the real Cookie Lyons, the fabulous tornado of a character played by Taraji P. Henson, who just received an Emmy nomination for her portrayal.
In her filing, Eggleston lays out evidence that she claims supports her accusation that she’s the original Cookie, and provides a timeline of her attempts to sell her own life story to Hollywood as further proof. Plus, they both love fur coats!
In 2010, Eggleston, now 53, published a memoir titled The Hidden Hand, which chronicled her life as a former drug kingpin. She goes on to list other similarities between her story and Cookie’s that proves, as the lawsuit states, the “folly of maintaining that the two works were independently created.”
I believe Sophia! She does look the part! And she’s definitely seen her share of droogs. That face doesn’t lie! Git it Sophia!
Check yo lipstick before you come and talk to her – or you might end up dead! The next season of American Horror Story will star Naomi Campbell as a fashion editor who pays the ultimate price for her critiques.
