EW: Kingsman 2
  • “If the first Kingsman was Captain America,” Egerton says, “then this is very much The Avengers now” 
  • Julianne Moore also costars as a Martha Stewart-ish global entrepreneur named Poppy and Elton John pops up as a “Vaughn-ized” (per the director) version of himself.
  • For Merlin, the action isn’t just confined to international espionage. He also has a possible romantic in the form of Berry’s across-the-pond spymaster. (booooo)
  • Halle Berry’s character, who plays his equivalent role in the Statesmen
  • Edgerton and Strong are not the only returning Kingsmen.
  • “I’ve read the rumors, but I can’t reveal if I’m even in this film,” Firth said while in full wardrobe on the set last summer.

anonymous asked:

Do you know how the soundtrack will be released? Is it gonna be on iTunes?

Here’s what I’ve read in a couple different articles, which mostly source this article on Entertainment Weekly (warning for autoplay)

“Steven Universe Soundtrack: Volume 1 will be available for digital purchase on June 2 on all major streaming platforms. A full track listing is still to be announced.“

I’m assuming that means iTunes, Amazon, and whatever else. Hopefully we’ll get to see what’s on there in the coming weeks!

Rebecca also tweeted this on twitter:

[Link] @rebeccasugar: “SO hoping for a vinyl release of the #StevenUniverseSoundtrack! This album was an answer to fan demand! So please demand it on vinyl!!!“

So let Cartoon Network know if you want it on vinyl too!

I’ve seen some panicking in the fandom because people seem to think that Malec are breaking up in 2x10. Let me just say, that spoiler we received yesterday from Entertainment Weekly did not read like a breakup to me. If anything I’d say that the nervousness and anxiety both men feel for each other during the episode leads to a confession at the end. Maybe something along the lines of an ‘I love you’? We’ll have to see. But honestly there’s no reason to worry about our boys. They JUST got together and seem to be head over heels for each other. 

Let’s just enjoy the ride, shall we? :)

Merry Christmas! It’s #optomstudies here again with another Sunday Study Tip on university life! This will be a multi-part series that hopefully will give a unique insight, since I can go on and on about university, and I love giving advice and helping others :)


PART 5: EXAMS

Because exams are so serious, you can enjoy reading something a little light-hearted :)

Study 3-4 weeks in advance of the finals. I feel like once you actually get down to it, after all the touching up to find out what concepts you need to understand or reclarify with the teacher, then starting revision about 4 weeks advance is enough to get you a very high mark in a course. Of course assignments usually take a lot of the time, but if you can manage to start, then you’ll find that everything else kind of falls into place. And you still manage to finish those assignments before the due date.

Form study groups leading up to the exam. Or not. I usually prefer studying by myself since I’m someone who works at their own pace, despite the fact that the times that I studied with others were quite productive. If it works for you, I say go for it.

Study for open book exams too! Because you can guarantee that they’ll ask you questions that make you wonder whether you’ve even covered that even remotely in class. Radiometry, Photometry and Colorimetry exam I’ll forever remember you ==‘


Arrive at the exam place early to tackle exam stress and anxiety. I find that getting to the exam facility early really helps you acclimatise to the environment and focus on staying calm and collected. When I was in first year a lecturer advised us to arrive an hour early just in case any train delays occur, so now I usually arrive more than 40 minutes before an exam. Also don’t freak out in the exam. Every minute counts!

Try and convince yourself that you don’t care anymore. This totally works for any overachievers or people who stress about doing the best that they can like me. Yep, just repeat to yourself, or listen to the song! “I Don’t Care” :) a little 2NE1 never hurts (my music style is more SM Ent though haha).

Study till the last minute. I’ve tried both relaxing the last day and studying the last day. Personally I’ve had one or two cases where studying on the last day led to an extra mark, and I don’t feel any big difference in stress levels, so I always just try and study until the last minute.


Exam staff are so very difficult. Not kidding, even a tiny blue tint and you can’t bring your water bottle in. You can’t wear a watch, or even put it on the table. You can’t write your name after times up, yup, even just your name so they know who filled out the exam LOL. They’re just doing their job, but they’ll get you to pull out your hair wondering who. the. heck. made. these. rules. Taking bets for the next thing they’ll ban! (my money’s on jumpers and jackets)

Collect the massive bags that they give you before an exam. I was literally so sad when they switched over to those tiny plastic bags. The big ones we used to be given that would fit your laptop were made of such good material and you could use them again for many purposes. I did manage to snag quite a few the first few semesters we had them though ;)

That moment when you manage to sit next to your friend in an exam and wave hiiiiiiiiiii (which translates to *heeeeeeeeelp*). Exam seating is random so you get given a card and you follow the spot to your seat. There was one time though that was such a coincidence I was like whaaaa? I was sitting an exam and went in with my friend. When we were about to get the cards, I turned around to go get my ruler from my bag just in case, and the card that I got was literally the one right next to my friend hahaha. 

Make sure you don’t drink too much water. Some exams really have you racing against the clock! No time for tinkling in the toilet when you have to tinker with the test whilst the time goes tick tock! (did you like that cause I thought that was pretty funny… no…? okay…)

Don’t leave early unless you’ve racked your brains for the answer twice over. Once I finished an exam early and checked my answers once or twice before sitting back and relaxing (which really means uncomfortably shifting around in a chair with no cushioning). I had about 20 minutes left for the exam, and only in the last minute did I flip over and realise I had read one question wrong. Thankfully I was able to change it and get that extra mark ^_^

'Personal Shopper' Director Olivier Assayas Says Kristen Stewart 'Gave Life' to the Movie
Perhaps the most fascinating current director-actor partnership in movies belongs to French filmmaker Olivier Assayas and his two-time muse, Kristen Stewart. The actress, 26, followed up her award-…

Q: What is it about your friendship and your collaboration that clicks so well?

Olivier: I think I have been the one filmmaker perhaps who has given her more space and freedom. When we worked on Clouds of Sils Maria, I was the one who told Kristen, “It’s okay to be yourself.

To me, she wasn’t a movie star, even though her name was helping to get my film financed. I was interested is Kristen as a human being and I loved discovering that she was so instinctive.

Q:She’s said that this film was very hard work for her but that she really understood this character.

I think she understood my script better than I did. I’m half joking but half extremely serious. For instance, I wrote the screenplay really fast and I wanted to shoot it right away. And Kristen kept telling me, “Oh, no, I’m doing this Woody Allen movie (Café Society) in the summer and I really need to prepare for it.” And I was like, “Kristen, you don’t need months to prepare for a Woody Allen film.”

But I accepted it and we postponed the film until she was done with the Woody Allen film, which I loved by the way. But once we started shooting, then I realized her preparation process. It’s amazing. She needed time to appropriate the grieving, the anxiety, and find herself in all the places where this character takes her. I fully realized that she needed all that extra time. And in that sense, Kristen was much more the adult in the room than I was.

9 LINE Webtoon Comic Creators Celebrate Women's History Month

9 LINE Webtoon Comic Creators Celebrate Women’s History Month

Comics and Women’s History Month

To celebrate Women’s History Month, EW asked 9 comic creators from LINE Webtoon, a free online digital platform dedicated to comics, about what it means to them to be a woman working in the comics industry. Here’s what they had to say.

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Madeleine Rosca (Rise From Ashes)

“A good comic is like a good movie - it takes you places and puts you in another’s shoes. Being able to present the opinions and actions of female characters in a manner that readers can enjoy regardless of their gender makes comics a very powerful medium for women creators.” Read it now

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Monica Gallagher (Assassin Roommate)

“Being a woman in comics can be a mixed bag - sometimes you feel like a novelty, sometimes you’re asked weird, invasive questions … and sometimes you inspire other women and girls to start doing comics themselves! Just in the last 10 years I’ve seen a lot of growth in comics for women and minorities and LGBTQ, but we still have a long way to go. The more diverse the comics and their creators are, the better the comics are for the creators and readers alike!” (Launching 2017)

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Molly Brooks (Power Ballad)

“As an artist, I try to make comics that feel emotionally real for my readers-especially for female readers and queer readers who see themselves in media less often. I’ve always treasured those rare moments when I’ve felt understood by a work of fiction, and I feel super blessed to have the opportunity now to tell the stories that younger-me was always looking for.” (Launching 2017)

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Megan Stevenson (Shard)

“As a woman, revealing that you’re a comic artist is akin to telling someone you’re a [Insert Predominantly Male Role Here]. You generally get one of two reactions – either a good old-fashioned polite ‘Oh really?’ and a brush to the side, or an actual genuine burst of interest with questions focusing on learning more about you, your interests and the worlds you create. I’m sure you can probably guess which ones are a bit more constructive, and most likely have a decent idea of which demographics they’re coming from. Representation in any industry is so, so important, and having women up front and center paves the way for others looking to break into the business but maybe didn’t think it was possible for them before. Women writing uncensored allows for a conflicting take on life and an influx of commentary on social issues that were never really touched by 'traditional’ comics before, offering validation to readers and their experience. Not everyone can relate to OP men in spandex and, really, they shouldn’t have to try.” Read it now

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Kathleen Meredith a.k.a. Lifelight (My Dear Cold Blooded King)

“Being anyone in comics is just mind-blowing, regardless of gender. I’m simply happy to be here and to be a part of this great big comic world!” Read it here

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Kaitlyn Narvaza a.k.a. instantmiso (Siren’s Lament)

“Being a woman in comics means that we can be our own heroes; that we can properly represent the true strengths and beauty women possess.” Read it here

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Julia Arostegi (Big Jo)

“People like to forget that women are a huge audience! Women are avid readers, moviegoers, videogame players, guys! You know, we are roughly half of the humans, after all, right? And we are slowly but surely conquering our space in yet another field historically dominated by men. And you know what? Maybe being a woman comic artist right now is actually an advantage, because I get to tell this narrative that didn’t get its share of space so far: a woman’s point of view. And there’s so much space out there… for everybody.” Read it here

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Sara Zimmerman (Illusions of Adulting)

“Being a female comic artist has been a great experience! It allows me to relay ideas from a female’s perspective and address and comment on problems, stereotypes and misconceptions faced by women by presenting new, creative solutions with a humorous twist. As a woman, artist, wife, mother, and business owner, I am grateful to have a venue to communicate my ideas to a broad audience and hope to inspire other women to take their own courageous steps towards their dreams.” Read it here

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Stephanie Quimco a.k.a. Quimchee (I Love Yoo )

“I am delighted to be able to create comics, but I honestly don’t think gender really matters in this industry, even though it is dominated by men. Being male or female does not define what kind of artist you are, let alone what kind of person you are. If I am able to inspire more women to create comics, then that’s wonderful!” Read it here

OT4 Nonsense Pt. 3

This is the last one I have planned because I have run out of my original plot for this silliness. I have had fun doing these drabbles though, so if people want more just give me some prompts for what you want to see and I will continue. 

Meanwhile here is part 3: 

For @hchano whose fault this is and who owns the “Bro-kiss 5″ 

and for @thelastpilot who made me love Nino even more than the show already did. 


“I can’t believe you tried to scare Mari away from Adrien.” Alya cackled as they all walked to their favorite gelato shop for a well-earned post study treat.

“Will you let it go? And I wasn’t trying to scare her away, I was just trying to make sure she didn’t get hurt.” Nino grumbled.

“I thought it was sweet.”

“Thank you Marinette.”

“Perhaps a little presumptive, but still.”

Nino glared affectionately at her and she giggled.

“He was just being a jealous boyfriend. Careful Mari you are a threat now,” Alya said coming forward and looping her arms through theirs.

“I was not jealous,” Nino stated, “and I would be completely fine with Adrien and Marinette hooking up.” He raised his eyebrows at Alya as if daring her to disagree. She just rolled her eyes and smiled.

“Adrien doesn’t think of me that way.” Marinette sighed, her gaze dropping dejectedly to the ground.

“Hey. He’ll come around.” Nino said, halting their steps so he could turn to look at his friend. “He’s just socially awkward and pretty oblivious.”

“Yeah, speaking of which- when are you going tell Adrien that you two are dating?” Alya ask.

“Wait, you mean he doesn’t know?” Nino cried incredulously.

“Of course not, it’s Adrien.”

“But that’s… ok that’s actually a totally fair point. But, if neither of us knew than how are we dating? Have I seriously been stressing out over nothing?”

“Oh no you are definitely dating.” Alya said with a nod.

“Yeah there’s no getting around that.” Marinette added.

“You too Mari?”

“You two pretty much lost the right to call yourselves completely platonic when you started doing the ‘bro kiss five’,” Marinette said flatly.

“I will have you know that was entirely his idea.”

“No one is questioning that,” Alya said.

“Yeah, only Adrien could come up with something that adorably pathetic,” Marinette added with a smile.

“True. It is super cute though, right?” Nino cast her a sidelong glance.

“Yes!” Marinette grinned. “And he gets so serious about stuff like that! Like everyone has to have their own special thing.”

“So if you two are done gushing, we have important matters to discuss,” Alya said.

“Such as?” Marinette replied.

“Such as the fact that Adrien still has no clue that either of you are crushing on him.”

“And now my head hurts again,” Nino sighed.

“Its ok honey, you already got past the hard part which is your own denial about the obvious.” Alya patted him on the shoulder.

“I still don’t understand how you are so calm about all of this. Should I be concerned that my supposedly loving girlfriend seems more invested in my dating someone else than I am?”

“Oh it’s entirely self-serving. See if you have Adrien too then I don’t have to feel guilty going after Mari. Or Ladybug if I ever get the opportunity.”

Nino opened his mouth to argue then thought for a moment.

“You know, I am fully ok with that plan.” He said at last grinning.

“Do I get a say in this?” Marinette grumbled.

“Nope, you know you love me,” Alya smirked, leaning over the sorter girl and rubbing her nose against her cheek.

“Maybe I don’t want to be dragged into your debauchery.” Marinette teased, raising her nose in the air snobbishly. “Maybe I will steal Adrien away for a life of blissful monogamy far away from the both of you.”

“Oh please, as if anyone could come between that bromance.”

“It’s ok Alya, if Marinette thinks she and Adrien are better off alone I can back down.” Nino said with a playful glint in his eye.

“Thank you.”

“Enjoy your weekly game marathons.”

“I love gaming.”

“And binge watching Anime when he gets sick.”

“Some of it is quite entertaining.”

“And helping him come up with new puns twice a week.”

“On second thought I think the idea of having secondary relationships has some real merit.”

“Awesome! I’ll start putting together a date night schedule,” Alya said happily, pulling out her phone and typing furiously.

“Aren’t we forgetting something?” Marinette asked.

“What?”

“Um, shouldn’t someone tell Adrien?”

“Eh, he’ll figure it out eventually.”

Entertainment Weekly, Kingsman: The Golden Circle first look

On a more serious note, they sure are teasing a potential romance between Merlin and Halle Berry’s character. After they promised he’d be gay. 

And not to be alarmist but I don’t see Roxy anywhere in these photos? That worries me. Matthew Vaughn is … sometimes pretty awful with women.

SEVENTEEN: What shows would they watch with you?

What shows would the members of seventeen watch with you?? 😊


It took a while and I did Korean shows, I hope that’s alright. If you want a non-Korean version let me know! <3 I can’t remember exactly (not even sure if it was Seventeen or not, but I faintly remember watching something where some of them said what shows they were currently watching or liked or something like that so I tried really hard to remember what it was but I mostly just based it off of what I think they would watch).


S.Coups: Strong Heart

I feel like he’d love listening to all the stories with you, perfect to cuddle too.

Joshua: You Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook

I feel like it’s such a Jisoo-type show. Musical, but with a variety <3 He’d have so much fun watching it with you.

Jeonghan: Real Men and Law of the Jungle

I think he’d really like shows where comedy happens naturally as they incorporate a lot of reality mixed variety.

Jun: Knowing Bros

And it’s not just because of Heechul. I feel like Jun would love the show for it’s variety and comedy, he seems like someone who really enjoys Korean humour and he’d want to share it with you. I’d love to see SEVENTEEN on it soon.

Woozi: Immortal Songs, King of Mask Singer and Duet Song Festival

Anything music related would probably get Woozi interested. But I also take him as a period-drama type of guy, so that’s also something he’d enjoy with you (although it may just be a guilty pleasure he enjoys alone).

Hoshi: Running Man (oh the feels ;-;)

It’s just such a Hoshi show, no?

Wonwoo: Abnormal Summit

As someone who really likes to read, I’d imagine him watching a show with lots of sense plus interesting information.

DK: Happy Sunday and Happy Together

For the Happy Virus, they obviously have to be entertaining shows full of happiness.

Mingyu: Mari and Me and Please Take Care of My Refrigerator

Dogs? Lots of dogs? Isn’t that just perfect for a dog lover? Also foooood. 

The8: Let’s Go! Dream Team 

He would love it. I take him to be super into the whole sports-variety thing and the gag’s would be just his cup of tea and he’d love watching it with you -or alone.

Seungkwan: Infinity Challenge, Hello Counsellor and Weekly Idol

I know he’d enjoy these shows immensely just because he gets to be extra extra while watching them.

Vernon: Show Me The Money (and Unpretty Rapstar which personally you both like more)

Forget the judging, the performances are pretty great and he’d enjoy watching them with you.

Dino: Hit the Stage! and Dancing 9

Need I explain? xD

Hello! What are you studying at college and why did you decided to study that?

Right now it’s literature. Next semester, at my new college, it’ll be journalism.

I feel more connected to real world events/issues/topics, compared to fictional worlds. I have the burning desire to inform those about issues/events/topics impacting the communities or the entire world. I feel much more fulfilled writing and reading about every day events, and I love how no two days are the same in the world of journalism. So that’s why I want to eventually write for a newspaper, magazine, or news site.

My focus would most likely be around investigative, scientific, or political journalism. Or pop culture (think Entertainment Weekly). I’m honestly not sure which topics I want to focus on yet.

Great Scot! - An Everlark/Outlander birthday drabble

For the incomparable @ombradellaluna, who celebrates a birthday today. I’m sorry it’s a little late in the day! I tried to fuse your love of Everlark with our mutual obsession for Outlander. Hope you are having a great day and thank you for being such an amazing artist and a good friend!

Thanks to @akai-echo for keeping me straight :).

Modern AU, Rated T (Apologies in advance for any mistakes I may have made with the Scottish slang).

Katniss had barely waited for the door to shut behind her before she’d kicked her shoes off and flung herself down onto the sofa. She’d enduring months of Droughtlander, waiting for any news about the new third season of Outlander until finally, Entertainment Weekly had announced their newest issue, with none other than Jamie Fraser, looking fierce and delectable on the cover.  She’d stopped off at the newsstand first thing after work and picked up two copies - one to collect and one to read and post in her office.  It was her one and only indulgence - consuming the Outlander series in whichever form she could get it.

That was how Peeta found her when he returned from work, nose deep in the magazine, eyes wide as she read and reread the article.  Katniss barely noticed his entrance as she studied the photos, until she felt the sagging weight on the cushion beside her.

“What are you up to?” he asked, peering around to the front cover of the magazine.  “Let me guess. Outlander?”

“Mmm-hmm,” she said, not bothering to look up from her reading. She could see his lopsided grin out of the corner of her eye which, under normal circumstances, would have gotten her to stop in the middle of whatever she was doing to admire him. But these were the first scenes from the battle of Culloden and Katniss couldn’t tear her eyes away from Captain Black Jack Randall locked in fierce battle with Jamie Fraser. She was practically salivating in anticipation of that long-awaited moment.

“I don’t understand it, really,” Peeta said, pulling her out of her reverie as he glanced at the picture of Jamie Fraser, a generous portion of his chest exposed by his torn shirt. “Every time I see him, he looks like he needs a bath.”

Katniss chuckled, turning the page to study another scene. “That’s part of the charm. Most women would volunteer to wash him.”

“I see,” he said, before leaning in towards her.  “Och, wifie, kann a mon hae a wee kiss aft a dae a hart work, ye ken?” he said, affecting his most convincing Scottish brogue.

It was an effective ploy. Katniss finally raised her head from the magazine, blushing profusely as she caught the devilish look in his eyes.  Her heart gave a small leap because she had to admit, Fraser or no Fraser, she had one helluva handsome husband. And he was here. And real. And largely clean, for the most part. “Ye daft sook,” she whispered, “Come ‘ere.”  She pressed her lips against his warm, real ones and kissed him thoroughly, with a heady fervor, leaving them both panting.

“That was nice. I wonder what would happen if I wore a kilt, too?” he asked.

She shook her head, setting the magazine aside and straddling him, squeezing him between her strong, lean thighs. “You don’t need a kilt. Or time travel. Or an accent for that matter.”  She slid her hand between them until they were deep in his pants. A low growl rumbled in his throat when she kissed him again.  “You’ve got everything you need already.”

“Good to know,” he gasped before pulling her down to kiss her again, running his hands up and down her back. He straightened slowly, forcing her to wind her legs around his hips. And just like that, the image of the great Scot, abandoned where Katniss had left him, disappeared from her thoughts as Peeta carried her to their bedroom.
