    My brother in law was an extra in the Godzilla movie and was so excited when he saw himself in 3 scenes. 😂

    Rih has interesting taste and it works on her but I really can’t see anyone else pulling off those looks. Those clothes are pretty unwearable

    That trailer looks blah and Damon’s accent is terrible. Isn’t Bale British? If so why does he sound so damn weird…that movie looks like a hard pass.

    • Tilly says:

      It’s a northern British accent, around the Manchester area from the sound of it.
      If you’re not familiar with it, it does sound quite strange but I can vouch for its accuracy.

      • Mel M says:

        Yeah, his voice and accent in the trailer reminds me of Arthur Shelby, of the Peaky Blinders. Even though I don’t think Birmingham is as far north as Manchester and I’m American so….

      • Debbydoo says:

        That’s not a Mancunian accent (I’m Mancunian). The character he plays is from just outside Birmingham (UK) and it’s a fairly accurate Brum accent.

        PS The car he drives in the film, the Shelby Cobra (known as the AC Cobra in the UK) was the reason speed limits were introduced on British motorways.

    I paid cash to watch Godzilla. Who in many shots looked like a gigantic non purple Barney. The producers were too kind to the baddie who caused the death of thousands. MBB looks about 30yo in this. Big Plus. The international cast. & O’Shea. & thats the end of my summer movie visits. Nothing else on the horizon. 🤨 thank you.

    LOL, isn’t that Christian Bale’s actual accent, or close to it?

    • duchess of hazard says:

      Bale’s accent is Welsh, I think. It’s a bit softer than that – and more of a lilt.

      • lucy2 says:

        I think he’s said he has more of a British than Welsh. He does so many different accents, it’s hard to keep up, but I think this one is fairly close to his actual one.

      • Jess says:

        Yes, Bale identifies as “British” but he’s Welsh and his original accent was Welsh. But it seems he’s lost it over the years of doing other British and American accents. When he speaks more naturally these days, he doesn’t speak a natural accent, just a sort of mixture of British accents with an occasional American vowel thrown in. David Tennant is the same–his original accent was a strong, undeniable Paisley accent but over the years of playing a more acceptable “generic Scotsman” for UK TV, he’s all but lost it for a more nonspecific, mellower Scottish accent.

  6. Bella Bella says:

    Pete Davidson needs to stand up straight. He would have looked much better without the slouch. And overall, the *real* models are so much better than celebrity models like Kendall and Kaia, who looked like they were going to knock a hip bone out of joint.

    Also, that Ford movie makes me ill. All anyone needs to know about Henry Ford is that he was a rabid anti-Semite and personally funded the one of the worst anti-Semitic newspapers, The Dearborn Independent, which was shoved into mailboxes across the country. He inspired Hitler, ffs. I am so sick of the male version of history in entertainment.

    • Snazzy says:

      Re Henry Ford – I had no idea about that part of his history. Now that is a movie I would watch!!

      • Bella Bella says:

        He’s the only American mentioned in Mein Kampf. Hitler kept a life-sized portrait of Ford by his desk. There’s a lot to read about it.

    • Jag says:

      I had no idea about that, so thank you for educating me!

      I wouldn’t watch anything that Damon is starring in these days; I used to love him as an actor, but can’t get past the things he has said over the last few years.

    It will be a revelation when they find a song other than “Gimme Shelter” to use in trailers.
