HBO Max's Peacemaker series wrapped up its first season today with an epic showdown between our team of misfits and the alien butterflies infiltrating Earth. As the episode unfolded, audiences are treated to scenes of badassery, especially from the kickass character of Leota Adebayo, played beautifully by Danielle Brooks.
As each of the 8 episodes ended, a mid-credits scene was tacked on with an extra bit of humor that likely was cut from the episode for time. For some reason though, this final episode, tied up the season with fatphobia and "concern trolling".
All I can ask is: Why?!
It feels like just yesterday when Sarah Paulson publicly admitted regret in adding padding to play Linda Tripp for Impeachment: American Crime Story. Yet Renee Zellweger, star and producer of NBC's The Thing About Pam, is also fat-suiting up for the title role of Pam.
During NBC's Press Day last week, journalist Whitney Friedlander craftily asked the question many of us have been wondering since the first "Renee Zellweger Unrecognizable" headlines appeared about a week prior: Why cast Renee Zellweger in a fat suit instead of a fat actor?
Actress Danielle Macdonald has a new series for HBO Max coming out, called The Tourist, starring 50 Shades' Jamie Dornan.
The Tourist hits the streamer with 6 episodes on March 3rd, but you can watch the trailer for the series now.
The Tourist: Jamie Dornan stars as a British man who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road.

With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback.
Remember when Amy Schumer was making a Barbie movie and it looked like it would be body positive? Yes, not everyone was excited about Schumer's involvement, but then we became less excited when she dropped out and Margot Robbie got involved.
Well, after a few years of relative silence on the project, there's news:
Controversial comedian Amy Schumer has a new series on Hulu, Life & Beth, which follows Beth (Schumer), who after an unexpected incident starts having flashbacks to her teen self and learns how she became who she is and who she wants to become. The comedy also stars comedian Yamaneika Saunders, along with Michael Sera and Michael Rappaport.
Watch the trailer for the series below and catch the entire 10-episode series on March 18th on Hulu.
Many of us in the Body Positivity community are familiar with the dance company, Pretty Big Movement, who made headlines when they appeared on America's Got Talent back in 2015.
Looks like they're getting the full Hollywood treatment as Warner Bros. and HBO Max hired Queen of the South co-producer and Queen Sugar producer Tina Mabry to direct and co-write Pretty Big.
