One day after President-Elect Donald Trump is sworn into office next Friday, Debra Messing, Cher, Scarlett Johansson and more will join the Women’s March on Washington, D.C.

The Women’s March on Washington will take place Jan. 21 and features partners including GLAAD, Planned Parenthood and Amnesty International.

Other notable celebrities joining the march are America Ferrera, Patricia Arquette, Danielle Brooks, Julianne Moore, Amy Schumer and Katy Perry, an official press release for the event reads. More than 100,000 are expected to attend.

“Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard,” said Ferrera, who was announced today as the artist table chair for the march. “As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities.”

The mission of the march is to shine a light on people of all faiths, races, colors and disabilities, in addition to the rights of women, the march’s website reads.

“This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society,” the website adds.

The marches won’t just be happening in the nation’s capital either. Chelsea Handler will be leading a “solidarity” march in Park City, Utah, at the Sundance Film Festival, which opens the same weekend. There will be more than 150 other “sister” marches nationwide — with at least one in each of the 50 states, according to the press release.

A request for comment from Trump’s spokeswoman was not immediately returned to ABC News.

It looks like the press promo for Ghost In The Shell is stating a full two months before its release, And Entertainment Tonight got to sit down with Scarlett and talk about the movie, it’s casting and baby Rose with music.

“I sing a lot, all day, probably much to her annoyance,” Johansson told ET’s Cameron Mathison on Monday, opening up about life with her 2-year-old, Rose Dorothy. “Sometimes it’s songs she doesn’t want to hear, so she’ll just go, ‘No, no, no! Not that one.’ I’m like a jukebox, just press ‘skip.’ Next!”

And to keep up with the Ghost In The Shell update’s, Empire has just released a new HQ production still for the upcoming 2017 movie of Scarlett as The Major. It is now up and in the gallery for you all to see!

A massive congratulations to Scarlett for all the hand work she did to make this happen.

Her movies, including Captain America: Civil War and the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar!, earned $1.2bn (£978m) globally over the past 12 months.

Johansson’s Marvel co-stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr tied for second place with $1.15bn (£938m) each.
Last year, the list was topped by Chris Pratt while, in 2014, Jennifer Lawrence took the top honours.

Forbes curates the annual list by adding up global ticket sales using data from analysis site Box Office Mojo.
Animated movies, where only actors’ voices were used, are not included and only top-billed performances are counted.

Johansson is joined in the top five by two other actresses – Australian Margot Robbie, who starred in the successful yet critically mauled Suicide Squad, which grossed $746m ($609m) worldwide, and Amy Adams.

Adams earns her place through her current film, sci-fi hit Arrival, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which she played Lois Lane.
British actress Felicity Jones made her debut on the list after making $805m (£656m) thanks, largely, to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, only released earlier this month.

She also starred in fantasy film drama A Monster Calls and alongside Tom Hanks in Inferno.

26 December 2016   Isle of Dogs No Comments

To soundtrack his holiday ad for H&M, Wes Anderson chose John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s classic “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” and apparently that wasn’t the only collaboration between Anderson and Ono on tap.

The director formally announced his next project today. It’s an animated film called Isle of Dogs, and true to Anderson’s style, the voice cast is made up of a roster of A-list talent from all over the arts and entertainment spectrum. Most notably is the edition of Ono, her first voice acting role in a major film. It’s also her first acting gig since appearing as herself in a 1995 episode of Mad About You. She might have got a kick out of her appearance on The Simpsons, but she didn’t even voice herself that time.

The rest of the cast is made up of Anderson regulars including Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, F. Murray Abraham, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Bob Balaban, Edward Norton, and, of course, Bill Murray, who has appeared in every single one of the director’s films since 1998’s Rushmore.

In addition to Ono, newcomers to the Anderson-verse include Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston, Courtney B. Vance, Liev Schreiber and Greta Gerwig. The cast also includes Akira Ito, Akira Takayama and Koyu Rankin.

Anderson made the official announcement today in a vlog-style video that includes a cameo from Norton. The actor plays “Rex,” who he clarifies is “one of the lead dogs.” There’s about a second-long preview of what “Rex” looks like in the preview as well.

The world isn’t exactly hurting for more animated movies with celebrities voicing talking dogs. We already have All Dogs Go To Heaven, Cats & Dogs, Oliver and Company, The Secret Lives of Pets, Beverly Hills Chihuahua…well, let’s just say, it’s not exactly and undermined genre. (Although Pets was one of the year’s top-grossing movies.) What exactly is Wes Anderson going to bring new to the format aside from Yoko Ono?

Well, it takes place in England, and that’s about all Anderson had to say about the actual plot.

Anderson is also raffling off the chance for a fan to voice one of the dogs in the film. The $10 raffle tickets will benefit Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation so there’s that.

This will be Anderson’s first film since 2014’s Grand Budapest Hotel and his first animated feature since 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. No word on when the film will be released, but production is already underway.

7 December 2016   Articles & Interview No Comments

The movie business is changing. Women have become increasingly visible as directors (Kathryn Bigelow, Lisa Cholodenko, Ava DuVernay) and successful producers (Reese Witherspoon’s production company Pacific Standard scored huge hits with “Gone Girl” and “Wild”; Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy won an Oscar in 2016 for the documentary short “A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness”). Yet many actresses are still paid less than their male peers, and the Academy Awards of 2016 were widely criticized for the lack of nonwhite nominees.

Only a few A-list actresses have been celebrated for their ability to throw punches or show menace on the screen, but that’s beginning to change as well. Scarlett Johansson, 32, received critical acclaim for her role as an alien on the hunt in “Under the Skin” and will appear in 2017 as a crime-fighting policewoman in “Ghost in the Shell.” Her superstar turn as the Black Widow in “The Avengers” series has helped to make her the highest-grossing actress of all time, pulling in over $3.3 billion for movie studios, according to Box Office Mojo. Still, as of this fall, she was the only woman in the top 20 on Mojo’s list.

In an interview, Ms. Johansson discusses how women’s roles in real life are changing their roles in film. The conversation has been edited and abridged.

Q. The world has watched you grow up on screen — you started so early. Over the course of that time, the roles available to women in real life have changed a lot. Is the process of filmmaking starting to reflect that?
Johansson: We see more female directors, more women in various departments on set. If you looked around a film set even 10 years ago, it was basically a bunch of dudes; maybe in the wardrobe department or in the hair and makeup department there would be women. Now you see more female camera assistants, cinematographers, grips.

In the job that I’m on now, “Rock That Body,” there are a number of women working as crew members, as opposed to many other productions that I’ve been on.

Is this changing the experience of acting for you?
Johansson: It’s nice to have a diverse group of people so that it doesn’t become so one-note — to have a female energy on set, to have different types of people and different vibes, and a more balanced creative environment.

At this point in your career, what draws you to a role?
Johansson: I’ve always had the same principle for choosing roles, which is to try and make movies that I would pay to see. As I get older that’s meant different things.

I’ve never been a superhero-comic fan exactly. I did “Iron Man 2” because I loved what [the director Jon] Favreau did with “Iron Man.” It spoke to me as someone who was not a fan of that genre, and I saw a future in building a character with Marvel.

The idea of doing a franchise was exciting — being able to play a character over many installments, the challenge of playing a character who had a built-in fan base, and trying to put my stamp on that character.

Some of the roles that you choose are very different, like in “Under the Skin” — your predatory alien uses the men’s sexuality against them, but she’s not particularly flirtatious. Is it important to you to try these things?It sounds like you like a challenge.
Johansson: I’ve always been very competitive, and a part of that is pushing your boundaries — taking a risk, and being able to live with the loss that comes with taking a risk.

In your work as the Black Widow in “The Avengers,” we see your ability to convey vulnerability despite the character’s strength.
Johansson: Admitting that you’re vulnerable is a very powerful thing. There’s something to be said for a character having a quiet strength about them.

So many contradictory things make up a multidimensional personality. Breathing life into a character means celebrating and recognizing the fullness of them — that you can be a lot of things at one time, that it doesn’t have to be black or white.

With more women on set, do you think you have more flexibility to explore all the dimensions of the character?
Johansson: Maybe the audience is more open to these richer character storylines than they were before, so there’s more of an opportunity to bring that to the screen. They want to see things that reflect the experiences that they’re having. As a culture we may be becoming more accepting of differences and of the full spectrum that life gives us.

When you see films from 50 years ago, the characters reflected what people wanted to project to the world, which was very black and white and guarded, or idealistic or whatever. It’s not that way anymore. The films that have a better audience reaction now are the ones where the characters are flawed. And I think that’s why [the “Avengers” writer and director] Joss Whedon has been so successful in that realm, because he loves the flaws, he celebrates them. He likes to pick apart their weaknesses.

What experiences would you like to create for your daughter on screen?
Johansson: My daughter is still young. Right now I think we both share the dream that I will someday be a Disney princess, but it’s probably not going to happen. I’ve been asking for that job for the past 20 years, and nobody has booked me.
