Someone Threw The ‘Veep’ Music Over That Awkward Trump Non-Signing, And It’s Fantastic

President Donald Trump had an awkward moment on Friday when he left his own big executive order-signing moment without, you know, signing the executive orders

While Trump tried to leave, the scene quickly took a turn for the chaotic. A reporter tried to ask Trump about one of his tweets from earlier in the day about his former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Vice President Mike Pence rushed over to the commander in chief before grabbing the unsigned executive orders and whisking them away. In a video, people can be heard confirming what they just saw.

“So he didn’t sign them?” one man asks.

”He did not sign them,” a woman replies.

“He did not sign them,” a third man confirms. 

It was a bewildering moment, one that gave BuzzFeed’s Brandon Wall an idea. “Could someone please mash this up to be in the style of a @VeepHBO closing credits scene? PLEASE,” he tweeted.

Luckily for him, BuzzFeed’s Jesse McLaren was ready and willing to do just that. And ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you: The video he create is wonderful. 

HBO’s “Veep” has made its comedic reputation on portraying Washington, D.C., insiders as a little more than a gaggle of bumbling incompetence ― something that they have said has become harder to parody with the rise of Trump.

Nevertheless, the cast and crew of the show appeared to be more excited about the video than maybe anyone. 

”Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus and executive producer David Mandel retweeted the video as well. As Kumail Nanjiani of “Silicon Valley” put it:

Carrie Fisher Wanted Her ‘Fantastic Obit’ To Read Something Like This

Many touching obituaries have been written in the wake of Carrie Fisher’s death on Tuesday.

Yet, none are quite like the one the witty 60-year-old author once wrote for herself.

In Fisher’s 2008 memoir Wishful Drinking, which she also adapted into a one-woman show, the actress describes an exchange she had with “Star Wars” creator George Lucas about her iconic Princess Leia costume. She writes:

“George comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes one look at the dress and says, ‘You can’t wear a bra under that dress.’ So I say, ‘Okay, I’ll bite. Why?’ And he says, ‘Because … there’s no underwear in space.’ I promise you this is true, and he says it with such conviction too! Like he had been to space and looked around and he didn’t see any bras or panties or briefs anywhere.”

Lucas, who deemed gold bikinis A-OK in outer space, later explained to Fisher the logic behind his no-bras-in-other-galaxies rule, which she also describes in the book:

“What happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t — so you get strangled by your own bra.”

She then reveals how she would like her “fantastic obit” to read:

“Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit — so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.

And Fisher fans on Twitter certainly obeyed: 

And, at The Huffington Post, we’re honoring that too, Carrie. Rest in peace.

‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ Bewitches At The Box Office With $75 Million Debut

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” dominated the weekend box office, debuting to a boisterous $ 75 million and launching a new cinematic franchise.

It confirms Warner Bros.’ high hopes for the property and its decision to back five installments in the fantasy series. “Fantastic Beasts” is a spinoff of the Harry Potter films, but instead of Hogwarts, it unfolds in 1920s New York City and features an entirely new cast of wizards and mythical creatures.

The studio spent $ 180 million to make the picture, enlisting Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling to write the screenplay and bringing back David Yates, the director of several previous boy wizard outings. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a textbook writer and collector of the titular beasts.

“This is dead on what we were looking for,” said Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution at Warner Bros. “Jo Rowling brilliantly told a story that inspired her fanbase to come out in a big way.”

It was a softer opening than any of the previous Potter films, but Warner Bros. argues that comparisons aren’t fair. Those movies were based on global best-sellers, whereas “Fantastic Beasts” is largely an original work.

“It’s not the same,” said Goldstein. “It’s apples and kumquats.”

Audiences may have embraced the return to Potter-dom, but they gave the cold shoulder to several new films, among them the boxing drama “Bleed for This” and the Iraq War drama “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.” Both pictures bombed, with “Bleed for This” eking out $ 2.4 million and “Billy Lynn’s” mustering $ 930,000 after expanding from four to 1,176 theaters. It has earned $ 1.1 million since opening in limited release a week ago, a disastrous result for a film that was expected to be a major Oscar contender.

Open Road is distributing “Bleed for This,” which chronicles Vinny Pazienza’s efforts to get back into the ring after a car accident. It has a $ 6 million budget, which cushions the box office blow.

Sony is backing “Billy Lynn’s” along with Bona Film Group, Film4, and Studio 8. The $ 40 million is a technological gamble. Ang Lee shot the picture so it could be exhibited at 120 frames per second in 3D at 4K HD resolution in order to achieve greater clarity and realism. Critics have been divided about the look of the picture, with some faulting it for looking too much like a telenovela. It’s something of a moot point, as only a handful of theaters have the ability to exhibit the film at the higher speeds.

STX’s “Edge of Seventeen” didn’t fare much better than the other struggling new releases. The teen dramedy with Hailee Steinfeld only managed to pull in $ 4.8 million for a seventh place finish. Heading into the weekend, it was expected to gross $ 10 million. The film is one of the year’s best-reviewed comedies. It centers on a high school girl grappling with the fact that her best friend is dating her brother. “Edge of Seventeen” cost $ 9 million to make, and was positioned as counter-programming for women between the ages of 17 and 39.

“I wish to god it had started better,” said Adam Fogelson, STX Entertainment Motion Picture Group chairman. “We hope that the love the critics have shown for it, and that audiences have for it, leads to it being seen now and going forward.”

The failures of “Edge of Seventeen,” “Bleed for This,” and “Billy Lynn’s” are signs of the difficulties that adult dramas and comedies face when they compete against big franchise films.

“A lot of these great little films are going the way of Netflix,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations. “The audience is not there anymore and they’re withering on the vine.”

Second place went to Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” which brought in $ 17.5 million to push its domestic gross to $ 181.5 million after three weeks in theaters. DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls” took third, earning $ 17.5 million to bring its haul to $ 116.2 million.

Paramount’s “Arrival,” a science-fiction thriller with Amy Adams, nabbed fourth place, picking up $ 11.8 million to bring its stateside gross to $ 43.4 million. Universal’s “Almost Christmas” rounded out the top five, picking up $ 7 million to push its domestic total to $ 25.4 million.

In limited release, “Manchester by the Sea” capitalized on glowing reviews and Oscar heat to open to $ 241,230 with a robust $ 60,308 per-screen average. Amazon bought the film out of Sundance for $ 10 million and is releasing it in conjunction with Roadside Attractions. Casey Affleck stars as a janitor trying to come to terms with a personal tragedy.

Focus Features also debuted “Nocturnal Animals,” Tom Ford’s noir-ish thriller, in 37 theaters where it made $ 493,000.

Weekend ticket sales were down more than 10% year-over-year, owing to a difficult comparison to “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” which opened to $ 102.7 million during the same period in 2015.

Many analysts expect a rebound. Next week brings the Thanksgiving holiday, which is traditionally one of the busiest periods for movie-going, and Disney is debuting “Moana.”

“We can handle one down weekend,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. “Next week could be one of the biggest Thanksgivings ever.”

Two Guys Set Up Fantastic Subway Joke On Stereotypes

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, you’re going to see a lot of heartfelt tributes to Dr. King’s messages, and all of them worth reading or watching. This one isn’t quite that, but it is certainly of the same vein.

Actor Cameron Bhola and comedian Moshe Kravitsky test the resolve of an entire subway train car when Kravitsky, a Jewish man, picks a fight with Bhola, who is black. Things get heated. And then they get funny.

We hate to get all, “WHAT HAPPENS NEXT WILL SURPRISE YOU!” but … what happens next will surprise you.

“As both of us have a love of acting and inspiring others, we resolved to stage a race-centric argument on the subway that would start off like most others [sic] fights, over something small like a subway seat,” Bhola wrote in the video’s description. “The fact that I’m Black and he’s White and Jewish — right there, you’ve got all the usual stereotypes at play in the background. But we wanted to end with a curve-ball out of left field.”
