MARVEL sets slate thru 2025, as NOPE opens... decent-ish?
WKUP: McMahon departs WWE for good / NETFLIX pic to open VENICE FEST / COMIC-CON trailer links galore
Mornin! This is Sean McNulty and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on MONDAY July 25, 2022.
Where SPRINGSTEEN tickets went on sale last week for his Spring US shows, and apparently TICKETMASTER’s new “Dynamic Pricing” tactic, meant to ironically prevent outrageous pricing from re-sellers… shockingly had the opposite effect.
Boss - ya got an optics problem here. This is bad.
TICKETMASTER issued a statement on Sunday clarifying that only 11% of The Boss’s tickets fell into that category. Oh ok then 🙄.
PLUS: I saw “Top Gun: Maverick” this weekend! It’s great, you should check it out 😁. Also the 1230p Sunday screening was about 85% full. This movie amirite? A gamer pic done IRL with a strong nostalgia play - genius combo.
AND: Apparently this 👇 is much harder to resist than you’d think.
First as was reported earlier this month, Elon fathered twins in November with an employee at a company he founded (and didn’t disclose it until about 7 months later), and now it seems Elon Musk had an affair with GOOGLE Co-Founder Sergey Brin’s wife last year as well, leading to their divorce earlier this year.
Last night Elon sent a message from a $44 Billion platform that he may soon be forced to buy, which addressed… well one part of the story about them not being friends anymore, tweeting “This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night!” Hopefully not on a boat.
