Billboard.com – Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s video for their new single “Iguana Bird” is a expressive personification of heartbreak recovery. The artistic clip, released Friday (Oct. 5), was directed by Bonnie Wright, best known for her role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter series.
The video shows a clearly downhearted young girl seeking personal connection in a bar, to no avail. She soon literally lights up the room when she lets go of inhibitions and lets herself dance.
“Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s new single ‘Iguana Bird’ evoked for me that new loneliness you feel in the wake of a break up, having spent every moment with someone you now have to create new memories that feel forced and out of touch with what you know,” Wright told Paper about the track. “I was inspired by the dance scene in Jean Luc-Godard’s film Bande à Part, most particularly Anna Karina’s character, and the vulnerable beauty often explored in French cinema during the ‘60s.”
Yorn is currently in the midst of his An Evening With Pete Yorn tour. Watch the video for “Iguana Bird” below.

With this was a total surprise but Scarlett made a appearance last night’s at the 70th Annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. She was there to show support for her boyfriend and co-host of the show Colin Jost. Scarlett looking amazing in her exclusive Balmain dress, yellow eye shadow (that I love) and at long long last she is growing her hair out of the look she has had since 2014 and it looks great on her. Over 200 HQ photos from the event are now up in the gallery with I hope more to come.

Last night was the opening of Joe Russo’s new La restaurant and to show some love to one of her Avengers director Scarlet as well as Chris Evans, Don Cheadle, Karen Gillan, Marisa Tomei and Pom Klementieff as well as other Marvel directors Jon Favreau, Taika Waititi and top Marvel man Kevin Feige were among those toasting the debut of the stylish bar and restaurant along with the chef Jessica Largey. It was nice to see Scarlett out for a night as with all the filming she has been doing as of late she has not been at events. Photos from the night have been added into the gallery and I hope to get more soon.

Avengers 4 are at this time doing some additional photography or reshoots as some call them and yesterday Scarlett, Chris Evans and Paul Rudd were seen on set in Atlanta, We only got photos of Scarlett in a shop but it gives us are first official look at her new hair and its back to red with blonde at the ends so with how much longer her hair is now could Avengers 4 have a time jump in it? You can view the photos in the gallery and I do hope we get to see a full photo of her soon and a title for the movie would be nice as well.

Avengers Infinity War was just released on digital download on July 29th, and after some time I got my hands on a 1080p blu-ray quality version complete with extras, Scarlett reprises her role as Natasha Romanov / Black Widow this time with very cool blonde hair (please keep it) for the biggest Marvel movie so far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a movie that see’s all the characters from from all the movies come together to fight Thanos. Unfortunately Scarlett dose not have a lot to do or a lot of screen time in this part but it has been said they all the characters from part one who did not have a lot of time will have a much bigger role in the still unnamed Avengers 4 so we can hope right. As with the movie Scarlett was not in a lot of the bonus features only two and not a lot of time in them at all but they were Beyond The Battle: Wakanda and the Gag Reel no deleted or extended scenes but we no from the Trailers we are missing at least two so I hope they come out at some time maybe with the big phase 3 box set some time down the road. The physical versions of the movie will be releases on August 14th in the US and September 3rd in the UK.

variety – Scarlett Johansson has exited the drama film “Rub and Tug” a little more than a week after her casting sparked backlash amid trans groups and activists, a source with knowledge of the situation confirms to Variety.
“In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project,” Johansson told Out Magazine, which first reported the news, in a statement. “Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive. I have great admiration and love for the trans community and am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues. According to GLAAD, LGBTQ+ characters dropped 40% in 2017 from the previous year, with no representation of trans characters in any major studio release.”
“While I would have loved the opportunity to bring Dante’s story and transition to life, I understand why many feel he should be portrayed by a transgender person, and I am thankful that this casting debate, albeit controversial, has sparked a larger conversation about diversity and representation in film,” the statement continues. “I believe that all artists should be considered equally and fairly. My production company, These Pictures, actively pursues projects that both entertain and push boundaries. We look forward to working with every community to bring these most poignant and important stories to audiences worldwide.”
New Regency won an auction for the movie on July 2, and it was set to be directed by Rupert Sanders, who previously worked with Johansson on “Ghost in the Shell.”
“Rub and Tug” focused on Dante “Tex” Gill, a crime kingpin who used his massage parlor as a front for prostitution in the ’70s and ’80s. Gill lived his life as a trans man, which led many on social media to wonder why a trans actor wasn’t tapped for the role.
It’s currently unclear where production stands on “Rub and Tug” after Johansson’s exit.
I did not think I would have to post this but over the last couple of days I have been getting some not so nice emails from people who think I am Scarlett telling me how awful (that is me understating it) I am for trying the role in the Rub & Tug movie.
Now I AM NOT SCARLETT JOHANSSON I am JUST A FAN I have no control over what Scarlett dose in her life of what roles she go’s for and it’s not my place to question it on here. So please don’t send me any more emails as they will not get to her and I will just block you.
Thank you for reading this
The Guardian – Film is based on the life of Dante ‘Tex’ Gill, a Pittsburgh massage parlour owner who used a male identity
Scarlett Johansson is to play a celebrated real-life massage-parlour owner, a woman who lived as a man, in new film Rub & Tug.
Deadline reports that Hollywood production outfit New Regency (previously involved with 12 Years a Slave, Birdman, and The Revenant) has picked up the project, which will see Johansson working again with Ghost in the Shell director Rupert Sanders.
Rub & Tug is based on the life of Dante “Tex” Gill, a notorious figure in the Pittsburgh underworld in the late 70s and early 80s. Gill – born Lois Jean Gill – ran a number of mafia-protected massage parlours in the city, which were fronts for prostitution. Gill stood out for her adoption of male clothing and hairstyles, and her longterm relationship with Cynthia Bruno. Gill was eventually convicted of tax evasion in 1984, and spent seven years in prison. She died in 2003.
Among Rub & Tug’s producers is the prolific Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes, The Nice Guys, The Matrix trilogy) and filming is due to begin in February 2019.
It’s been a little bit of time since we heard about Scarlett doing any thing for the Japanese hair care company she models for Lux but a little late but some months ago a new Ad Campaign and Commercial were released online, The product is Lux Super Rich Shine Moissturizing Oil and you can get it on there official shop.
