Time to Worry, Darling?
The Venice Film Festival was lucky enough to have actor Florence Pugh stop by for an appearance alongside her Don't Worry Darling castmates, but it won't be the same for the New York premiere of the film. Pugh is scheduled to be on the set of Dune 2 during the ceremonies on September 19. The notable absence comes after #SpitGate, when the internet debated whether or not Harry Styles spit on his co-star Chris Pine due to a viral video.

Actor Julia Roberts wants to breathe new life into the Rom-Com genre. She has a new film, Ticket For Paradise, set to premiere in theaters on October 21. In an interview with the New York Times, Roberts said, "I think we didn't appreciate the bumper crop of romantic comedies that we had then. You don't see all the effort and puppet strings because it's fun and sweet and people are laughing and kissing and being mischievous." She had a stranglehold on the genre in the 1990s, starting with the all-time classic in Pretty Woman.
