"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

"Werk Werk"The Beguiled does Hamilton

You may think you didn't need to see Colin Farrell doing his best hair flip to "The Schuyler Sisters"fromHamilton,but you'd be wrong.

Our hearts are bursting.It turns out the little girls ofThe Beguiledmade a Hamilton lipsync video while goofing around on set to accompany a donation to Lin-Manuel Miranda's "immigrants get the job done"coalition (we mentioned the contest the other day)...May this challenge others to donate,too!Oona Lawrence leads us as Aaron Burr,with Emma Howard as Angelica,Angourie Rice as Eliza,and little Addison Riecke as Peggy.

You may think you're loving the video in the first minute but wait til the rest of the stars start popping up.Everyoneis in this!Heaven.

The Link Where It Happens

Link love time.

VultureMichelle Pfeiffer's ten essential roles
PrizeoLin-Manuel Miranda offers up the chance to win VIP tickets and a meet and greet at the opening night ofHamiltonin Los Angeles with a donation to "Immigrants Get the Job Done Coalition".(And FYI two former Tony nominees Joshua Henry as Aaron Burr and Rory O'Malley as King George are in the company)
Vanity Fairon how difficult it is to get a gay film made in today's Hollywood.The headline to this is a bit misleading since it's like "in a post-Moonlightworld"but let's be reasonable.Moonlightonly made its dent a handful of months back.So most of the films cited didn't haveMoonlightto point to when seeking financing

THRMore dirt on what happened behind the scenes on the troubled Han Solo movie
NerdistWhy Megara is the MVP of Disney's Hercules
PlaybillThe glorious Audra McDonald finally makes her West End debut,no big deal after 6 Tony Awards,reprising her Tony winning / Emmy nominatedLady Day at Emerson's Bar & GrillBillie Holiday role
Buzzfeedthe hardest game of 'would you rather' with hot cartoon dudes.I don't know.Most of these were easy for me but your mileage may vary.
Varietyoffers up a franchise report card on the various series that are taking up so much of Hollywood's time and capital.But shouldn't Bond and Tarzan have been included in this roundup?
Deciderlists the '20 best foreign films on Netflix'...though the list would have been more exciting had they editorialized rather than just pulling the RT scores to determine which 20 to feature
MNPPpic of the day with Edgar Wright at aBaby Driverscreening

Exit Video
Check out this glorious montage of NYC (hat tip to Gothamist) as seen through the movies.

New York in Cinema - SupercutfromSergio RojoonVimeo.

God,I love living here.And one of my fav things in movies is city street scenes where the main character is just part of a huge walking crowd (the most classic visual example beingTootsieI think). How many movies did you instantly recognize?

The GuardianJohnny Depp is suing and being countersued...and he's spending money as wildly and foolishly as Nicolas Cage once did (if you're wondering why they both make so many bad movies)

As was previously rumored but is now true,Denis Villeneuve has signed on to directDune.He mentioned this as a possibilityin our interview recentlyand sounded very excited about it,having been a fan of the novel his whole life.But still,TWO reboots of two beloved sci-fi properties back-to-back withBlade Runner 2049up next?And right after your Oscar nomination after such deserved momentum from doing your own thing (Enemy-Prisoners-Sicario-Arrival)?!I guess this is cashing in while also fulfilling a dream but it worries this fan of Villeneuve doing his own thing.

Though the David Lynch film from 1984 had its issues it also had some deeply memorable imagery so at the very least it will be interesting to see how his version measures up.
