The Daily Heat Index: Dynamic Duo Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Schumer Rock the Golden Globes
Plus, Kevin Hart takes the ‘Lip Sync Battle’ stage, and the Russo Brothers reveal where ‘Captain America: Civil War’ will pick up from.
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
JLaw and ASchu Take the Stage
Though those jet-ski Instagrams may have given us a little preview of the blossoming friendship between Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, it was last night’s presentation of the 2016 Golden Globes that truly showed the pair in action. While presenting clips from their respective films, Joy and Trainwreck, audiences got a taste of what their future film will be like (that the two co-wrote and will likely star in). Even with a little bit of censoring, which should come as no surprise, the two shined on stage, playing off their designated ‘celebrity nicknames’ to start and ultimately making us wish we were between that beautiful JLaw/ASchu sandwich.
Got Him Like ‘OMG’
Kevin Hart channels his inner-Usher for what will probably be a hilarious performance for this Thursday’s new Lip Sync Battle. After finishing his rendition of ‘OMG,’ the Ride Along 2 star says that all that moving around was harder than it looks, with “a lot of unnecessary pointing.” No word as to what songs his opponent, Olivia Munn, will be tackling, but anyone that woman touches is gold, so we’re not too worried.
Cap Leads the Way
In an interview with ComicBook, Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed to the world just where the Avengers will be when the new film picks up.
“We find Cap leading the Avengers. He’s tutoring or mentoring Scarlet Witch in the beginning of the movie and bringing her into the fold. We find them on a mission at the start of the film. The effect that Ultron has had on everyone certainly is central to the storytelling of the movie. It’s very strong. We’re dealing with issues of collateral damage, imperialism, what rights do super heroes have to pursue villains across borders. It’s very politically minded. Cap’s dealing with all of that at the beginning.”
Sounds like our beloved superheroes won’t have any time to catch a break, with the rumored mission to have something to do with the arrival of Frank Grillo‘s ‘Crossbones.’ Age of Ultron left the team with a new line-up and a heavy heart, so only time will tell what is in store for Captain America in what is being said to be ‘one of the best Marvel films ever.’
