Exclusive: Watch John Cena and Leslie Mann’s Hysterical Blockers Outtakes

Blockers is easily one of 2018’s most hilarious – and unexpectedly feminist – teen comedies, but much of Kay Cannon’s directorial debut finds its laughs with the actors who play the parents to said teens: John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz. In our exclusive clip from the movie, which is now on Digital and will be available on Blue-Ray July 3, watch the trio go through line after hysterical line in never-before-seen footage. (Hearing Cena excitedly say, “Marci said I could build a tiny home in our backyard for activities!” is worth a watch, trust us.)

Chrissy Teigen Gives Passionate Speech at Families Together Rally With the Help of Baby Miles

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend had the company of their entire family while attending the Families Belong Together rally in LA on Saturday to protest the forced separation of migrant families under the Trump administration. While there, the supermodel and cookbook author took the stage to make a passionate speech with baby Miles strapped to her chest, highlighting “the simple message of keeping families together.” POPSUGAR News and Culture Director Lindsay Miller was there to capture it all on video, which you can see above.

“This is his first rally” Chrissy told the crowd of Miles, to applause. “I’m really proud to be here, obviously. You guys are so incredible and give me so much hope . . . I’m incredibly proud to be a daughter of an immigrant. My mother grew up in a very small village in Thailand . . . we love that the American story is filled with people who come from all over the world to have a better life here. America at its best is big, beautiful, and diverse. It’s not small, it’s not petty, and it’s not exclusive, like Mar-a-Lago.”

Watch her speech in full for some truly touching words on immigration and diversity, as well as a spot-on Donald Trump impression.

No Assistants Necessary – It Looks Like There’s Hope For a Set It Up Sequel!

Fans have quickly fallen in love with Netflix’s original movie Set It Up, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only does the film have a star-studded cast (Lucy Liu, Taye Diggs, Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell), but the plot is restoring peoples’ faith in romantic comedies. Which is why many people are already wondering – will there be a second movie? Well, it definitely seems like a possibility! The film’s director, Claire Scanlon, recently revealed that writer Katie Silberman is already brainstorming ideas for a possible sequel.

“Katie’s already come up with the idea,” Scanlon told E! News. “She already has a plan. We were joking about it on set. We really like these characters!” So what ideas are being thrown around exactly? While Silberman suggested that Harper (Deutch) and Charlie (Powell) should try to set friends up at a wedding, Scanlon argued that the film should be all about Kirsten (Liu) and Rick (Diggs). “They’re not getting together, but [the film would be about] their respective relationships,” she clarified. (Which, obviously – there’s no way Kirsten, who has a fierceness that’s “both scary and inspiring,” would ever put up with him a second time around.)

“To me what would be interesting to see is Kirsten, where does she go next?” Scanlon said. “The character Rick has clearly opened a door for her and made her realize, ‘I’m worthy of a personal life and I deserve this.’ I’d love to see where that goes. Honestly, it’s the Kirsten character that I would want to explore. There’s a world out there that you would want to explore. It’d be interesting to see where it goes.”

We would totally watch that! While Netflix has yet to confirm the sequel, the fandom the film has gained in such a short amount of time is a good indicator that it could happen. Fingers crossed!
