You are listening to the Expresso Entertainment Update. Here is the latest news from the world of Hollywood brought to you by The Indian Express.
“We begin today’s bulletin with news on Harry Styles who already has an enviable acting resume for a newcomer, from Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk to the upcoming Don’t Worry Darling and My Policeman. But the pop star said Monday at the Venice International Film Festival that, with acting, he often feels as if he has no idea what he is doing.
Styles’ arrival on the Lido, where Don’t Worry Darling is having its world premiere Monday night, has been one of the most anticipated events of a festival full of stars. Before the premiere, Styles was peppered with questions about his fans, his career, and whether or not he would work with director Olivia Wilde again — neither of which he answered.”
“Meanwhile, Comedians Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle recently performed at London’s O2 Arena and the duo talked about their respective onstage incidents. While Rock was slapped by actor Will Smith, Chappelle was attacked by an audience member at Hollywood Bowl.
Rock reacted to the apology video for the first time at O2 Arena.
According to Deadline, during his lengthy set on stage, Chris Rock talked about Will Smith’s apology video and tagged it as a ‘hostage video’.
After Rock, Dave Chappelle took the stage. The comedian, who was attacked on stage in May, said that post the traumatic incident, he is weary about performing on stage because he can no longer tell if someone in the audience will be hostile. ”
“Moving on, Brendan Fraser is having a moment at the Venice International Film Festival. The once ubiquitous movie star of The Mummy franchise and George of the Jungle had, in the last decade, backed away from the spotlight. But Fraser is charting what could be a major comeback starting with his transformative role in Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale, which had its world premiere Sunday night at the festival.
As the credits rolled in the Sala Grande theatre, the audience gave the film a long-standing ovation while Fraser, on the balcony alongside his director and co-stars, wiped tears away. Fraser plays Charlie, a reclusive English teacher with a kind soul who weighs 600 pounds.

“In other news, singer Britney Spears has responded to her son Jayden’s recent comments that he and brother Sean, 16, have cut all contact with her. He also supported her father and his grandfather, Jamie Spears, who served as Britney’s conservator for 13 years.
Spears took to her Instagram handle and in a lengthy post explained her actions over the years and also called out her ex-husband Kevin Federline. She started with, “I’ve tried my best at being the best person I can be… To be held hostage in homes under nurses and bullshit. I hope one day my kids understand my reasoning..””
Next up, we bring you some news on ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ which has swung back on top of the box office during a holiday weekend where American theatres aimed to lure moviegoers with discounted $3 tickets. The first National Cinema Day nationwide promotion became the highest-attended day of the year, drawing an estimated 8.1 million moviegoers on Saturday, according to The Cinema Foundation. The one-day event – offered on more than 30,000 screens and held in more than 3,000 theatres, including major chains AMC and Regal Cinemas – collected preliminary box office returns of $24.3 million, according to data firm Comscore.
“Meanwhile, Normal People star Daisy Edgar-Jones’ upcoming mystery drama movie Where the Crawdads Sing will release in India on September 16. Based on author Delia Owens’ 2018 novel of the same name, the movie will be released by Sony Pictures Entertainment India in the country, the studio said in a press release recently.
The movie is directed by Olivia Newman and is set in the mid-20th century. It centres on Kya played by Edgar-Jones.
Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon has produced the movie through her production company Hello Sunshine. The movie also stars Taylor John Smith, Harris Dickinson, Michael Hyatt, Sterling Macer Jr, and actor David Strathairn.”
“Jane Fonda said on social media recently that she has cancer. The 84-year-old actor wrote in an Instagram post, “I’ve been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and have started chemo treatments. This is a very treatable cancer,” she added, “so I feel very lucky.”
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a cancer that begins in the white blood cells and affects parts of the body’s immune system.
Fonda acknowledged that unlike many, she is privileged to have insurance and access to the best doctors. Fonda said she has begun a six-month course of chemotherapy and is handling the treatments well. Fonda has dealt with cancer before. She had a tumour removed from her breast before and has also had skin cancer.

“We end this bulletin with news on the former US president Barack Obama who won an Emmy Award recently to go with his two Grammys. Obama won the best narrator Emmy for his work on the Netflix documentary series, ‘Our Great National Parks.
The five-part show, which features national parks from around the globe, is produced by Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, “Higher Ground.” He was the biggest name in a category full of famous nominees for the award handed out at Saturday night’s Creative Arts Emmys, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Attenborough, and Lupita Nyong’o.
