The trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is here! Yessss.

When you see the two versions of the same story compared to each other, the changes suggest that Meyer should’ve ignored complaints about Bella being a stereotype and maintained the value of what was undeniably a successful franchise. Instead, she ended up adding slight variations that feed into traditional gender stereotypes: Females receive more unnecessary physical description than their male counterparts did in Twilight and Bella almost cries where Beau doesn’t.

Sounds like the new gender-bent version of Twilight doesn’t correct the gender issues of the original.

Marvel Studios has announced the release date of an Ant-Man sequel, delaying the planned release date of Captain Marvel. That’s right, the movie with two leads who had zero chemistry onscreen has bumped Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie.

Ridiculous.
