I don’t know how to break this to you, but Disney is making a sequel to Mary Poppins. The musical film, according to Entertainment Weekly, will take place 20 years after the original film and take elements from the P.L. Travers book series, though it will not be an adaptation.
I may not approve of “Mary Poppins 2: Let’s Get it Poppin” — let’s call that a working title — but I’m not going to let it ruin my day. David Lynch, on the other hand, has already shown he’s willing to walk out on something if he doesn’t get his way, which explains why fan site Twin Peaks Archive stopped posting set photos and details from the new Twin Peaks set after finding out Lynch did not approve.
So, gossip-loving fans, you might think the Twin Peaks Archive folks caved, but if you really want more of the series, then you’ll suck it up.
Have you ever gotten lost thinking about what’s going on in Taylor Swift’s head? Would you like to?
If so, you should head to Summer’s Farm in Frederick, Maryland, which created a giant corn maze in the shape of Swift’s head. According to Uproxx, the 2.5-mile maze could take as little as 30 minutes to complete.
A page from an early draft of the Pulp Fiction script allegedly shows some of the alternative casting options Tarantino considered for the movie. /Film reported that the picture, which popped up on Reddit and whose accuracy has not been substantiated, included notes from Tarentino to Harvey Weinstein, instructing him on who to contact first, second and a few alternates in case his top choices weren’t available. The result is a jumping-off point for ridiculous thought exercises like, “Would Pulp Fiction still be Pulp Fiction if Dennis Quaid played Vincent instead of John Travolta?”
To imagine such a world, we will need drugs. Luckily, The New York Times reported that German biochemists recently created a new type of yeast that can be used to harvest THC and cannabidiols, so soon we’ll all be able to pick up Cannibaguettes on the way home from work every day.
Researchers claim that finding a way to get access to THC without the use of illegal drugs will allow researchers to properly study the chemicals’ medical applications. However, my guess is that they really want to find an easy way to sneak THC into a movie theater, so they’ll be ready when their kids inevitably force them to go see the next Mary Poppins.
