Joel Edgerton & Lucas Hedges Debut First Footage of 'Boy Erased' at CinemaCon 2018!

Lucas Hedges and Joel Edgerton flash a smile together while hitting the carpet at 2018 CinemaCon: Focus Features Presentation at Caesars Palace held at the National Association of Theatre Owners on Wednesday (April 25) in Las Vegas.

The 21-year-old actor and the 43-year-old actor presented the very first footage of their upcoming drama Boy Erased, which tells the story of the son of a baptist preacher who is forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion program.

“The true conversion is what happens with people’s ideas,” Joel, who directed and plays the head therapist, said onstage (via Variety).

“I’m a very anxious and nervous actor, so I tend to get very paranoid and afraid of scenes before we film them,” Lucas added about working with his parents, played by Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman. “I have several memories of Nicole where I just forgot everything, forgot everything about where I was, just looking at her. I’m just like, ‘What’s going on here?’ But not even like, ‘It’s Nicole Kidman.’ She’s my mom, and everything about her centered me… It’s the same with Russell.”

Avicii's Family Releases Second, Heartbreaking Statement After His Tragic Death

Avicii's Family Releases Second, Heartbreaking Statement After His Tragic Death

The family of Avicii (aka Tim Bergling) have released a second, heartbreaking statement just three days after their initial statement on his tragic death at the age of 28.

The family said in a statement on Thursday (April 26), via Variety, “Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress. When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music. He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace. Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight. Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.
We love you,
Your family”

Variety has speculated that there could be numerous meanings to this second statement. A cause of death has not been released.

Our continued thoughts are with Avicii‘s loved ones.

Ryan Reynolds Says Core of 'Deadpool 2' is About 'How Kindness Can Change the World'

Ryan Reynolds Says Core of 'Deadpool 2' is About 'How Kindness Can Change the World'

Ryan Reynolds is all smiles while posing for photographs at his press conference and photo call for his anticipated film Deadpool 2 held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Wednesday (April 25) in Mexico City, Mexico.

“Tone is so critical in these movies and at the heart of Deadpool is always a very emotional story. You have to circle around that before you think about comedy bits or trying to incite reactions or that sort of thing,” the 41-year-old actor recently expressed (via Washington Post).

“So Deadpool 2 is really, at its core, about how one act of kindness can change the world,” Ryan continued. “It’s sort of a nature versus nurture story at its heart and that’s critical to the film as a whole. Then you can model which sort of comedic set pieces you want around that. But at the end of the day it’s got to be an engrossing story and that’s the thing that we were most focused on from the get-go.”

Janelle Monáe Comes Out as Pansexual

Janelle Monáe is flawless on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s new issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On her sexuality: “Being a queer black woman in America…someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherf*cker…[she initially identified as bisexual] but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

On her message to her fans: “I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you. This album is for you. Be proud.”
