It’s hard to think of much that could make My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 — yet another “why-is-this-a-sequel?”-sequel — particularly interesting. But in a write-up of the movie’s first trailer today, /Film noted that though it arrives 13 years after the original film, the main characters (still played by Nia Vardalos and John Corbett) now have a daughter who’s applying to college, which would technically imply that the film is set at least around 2020. Thus, the not-at-all-sci-fi and not-particularly-compelling trailer becomes rather compelling when watched while imagining that the titular wedding could happen entirely from within an app or that a miniature Swiss black hole could pop out of the wedding cake, whereby the characters would time-and-universe-travel to, say…
…Neill Blomkamp’s potential next film, a “sci-fi time travel procedural” that Uproxx reports would, if it’s made, be titled The Gone World . (and would hopefully be better than Chappie). The film-in-negotiations is based on Thomas Sweterlitsch’s same-titled novel, which itself has not yet to be released.
Spanish artist/activist group luzinterruptus have filled 3,000 condoms with water and tiny lightbulbs in their London installation, Rain Interractive, a work that’s meant — as The Creators Project writes — to “address the privatization of water access all over the world” through the sea of dangling, prophylactic drops that are “quite pleasant to touch and squeeze.” luzinterruptus link condoms to their overall message about “how abhorrent it is to privatize [water] and trade it for the profit of just a few” by noting that condoms also, typically, are meant to contain “the source of life.”
The hat that infamously transforms Walter White into the feared Heisenberg now has a new home at the Smithsonian. The hat was joined by two of the hazmat suits Walter and Jesse wore whilst concocting their addictive substances and equally addictive television. The Independent reports that 10 props and costumes — which also included Los Pollos Hermanos cups and a baggie of fake blue meth — in total were donated to the museum. The props were handed over during a ceremony attended by cast members Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Jonathan Banks and RJ Mitte, as well as the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, and four of its executive producers. The Guardian has a full report on the event.
