CHINA TO TAKE BOX OFFICE LEAD: Movie theaters in the U.S. are stagnating, but China's theaters are bustling, and the Middle Kingdom is set to take over North America as the biggest film exhibition market in the world this year. Sone wonder how this will affect the content of movies. "Long-term, North America will come back to box office prominence," says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore, "but if China's recovery shows that people of all cultures love movies on the big screen enough to support that experience — even in a pandemic — then, in the long run, that could be a currency more valuable than dollars and cents."

SCARLETT JOHANSSON SET FOR BRIDE: Scarlett Johansson is set to star in Bride, a riff on the classic Bride of Frankenstein character for Apple and A24. Sebastian Lelio will direct. The logline reads: "A woman created to be an ideal wife — the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur — rejects her creator, and is forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. It is on the run that she finds her true identity, her surprising power, and the strength to remake herself as her own creation."


LENA TALKS POST-SOBRIETY MAGIC

Lena Dunham is finding that the world is a more magical place now that's sober. The Girls creator sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss how her priorities have changed and what she's discovered.

She signed on to emcee a Friendly House benefit over the weekend, and she says the organization has been key to her recovery: "Snark and blinding wit can be fun, but who has time at the moment? So this was an opportunity to open up about what sobriety means to me at almost three years clean and what Friendly House has meant on that journey and on a larger scale the impact of the current mental health crisis and how diligent we have to be in battling it. Living in Los Angeles, the homeless population is growing visibly every day; we can't ignore it. This is deeply tied to issues of mental health and substance misuse disorder. The support just isn't there, which is why Friendly House remains such a rare organization — no woman is ever turned away for financial reasons."

Friendly House's open-mindedness is key to its success, she believes: "I love that Friendly House uses many modalities — talk therapy, transcendental meditation, creative arts, more classic 12-step — to help women find a center of peace without drugs and alcohol. They're always on the lookout for new ways of bringing calm and hope to their patients. They remain open to every aspect of healing, and I really believe we don't heal without a huge arsenal of tools. I sure didn't."

She says that sobriety has transformed her life: "Becoming sober is quite simply the best choice I've ever made for myself. It has given me a level of steady focus and presence of mind that I never had even before I knew what drugs and alcohol were, when I was just an anxious kid, because getting sober forces you to face so much of your inner life and how you really are programmed, and to get comfortable with who you are on a base level."

Dunham says that working through it during the pandemic has been a positive: "I actually like myself, which is a pretty surprising discovery for a chubby Jewish writer with OCD and chronic illness. The pandemic has brought a whole new layer of anxiety, and also a whole new mode of needing to sit with myself. It's like hitting a new level in a video game and having to battle different goblins, but it's proved possible, and on some days even lovely. Being a writer, I am pretty accustomed to long stretches of time with just my dog and my thoughts and the clacking of computer keys, and I feel very blessed doing that with only the buzz of coffee."

Dunham adds that she sees more than she ever did: So many magical things have occurred, in work, in travel, in health. Maybe they're miracles, maybe I just didn't notice this stuff before. But the very best thing is how so many of my relationships have strengthened themselves, even certain ones that seemed beyond repair for whatever reason. I've been able to show up as an adult to these dynamics, and they've been able to see me show up, and the love just flows."


CELEBRITY GOSSIP

SACHA BARON COHEN RESPONDS TO TRUMP: Asked if he had seen his advisor Rudy Giuliani in Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, President Donald Trump said: "I don't know what happened. But years ago, you know, he tried to scam me. And I was the only one who said no way. That's a phony guy. And I don't find him funny. I don't know anything about him other than he tried to scam me. He came in as a BBC – British broadcasting anchor. To me, he was a creep. Thank you all." Cohen responded on Twitter: "Donald — I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit, I don't find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I'm always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you'll need a job after Jan. 20. Let's talk!"

He continues, saying that Americans are seeking the same thing in a leader: "someone who understands their hopes, their dreams, their pain, to listen, to bring people together... to work just as hard for the people who voted for him as those who didn't. To be a president for all Americans."

CHRISTINE ELISE APOLOGIZES: Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Christine Elise is walking back her claims that Jessica Alba lied when she said she was told not to make eye contact with the show's cast on-set. Elise said on social media: "First of all – I have never met her but have always admired her work. I am certain she is a lovely woman. Secondly, anyone who knows me at all knows I swear with unapologetic abandon, so quotes read without tone of voice can be misinterpreted and seem more angry than they ever were." She went on to say that Alba's recollection of her time on the Fox teen drama "does not sound like the set I was on."

REPORT: WENDY WILLIAMS STAFFERS SAY SHE IS SELF-MEDICATING

Staffers at the Wendy Williams show have spoken out about what is allegedly going on behind the scenes. According to LoveBScott, staffers say that they believe Wendy is self medicating on "prescription pills, some kind of opioid." The source continued, "The production staff is at a loss for what to do. Because of COVID, the staff sits in the audience every show, and they're constantly worried she's going to pass out on the air like before. Some days it's so bad, the producers will pull the plug and air a repeat. But It's a big production and they can't keep wasting money like that."

Fans noticed Williams' erratic behavior during an episode of her show last week. One fan commented, "Wendy you need to stop your show and seriously get help, your camp is just watching you spiral instead of sending help—shame on them." Another wrote, that she "doesn't listen" and "that's probably why DJ Bouf Boof left." DJ Boof commented,"Yup exactly and it will all come out. Y'all have no idea what's really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don't wanna lose their jobs. This is going to play out bad."


DID LILY JAMES FLIRT WITH OTHER MARRIED CO-STAR? + HER SIDE

Lily James has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately. She and her married co-star were photographed canoodling in Rome, causing West and his wife Catherine FitzGerald to issue a statement that they were still very much together, and posing for photographers outside of their home for a kiss.

Now, reports are emerging that her behavior may have caused the demise of Armie Hammer's marriage to Elizabeth Chambers. Chambers found messages from a woman signed "Adeline" on his cell phone in 2019 and was "devastated." He was shooting Rebecca with James at the time, and she was referred to as Adeline and Rebecca on the call sheets and on her trailer.

At the time, there were rumors of the on-set flirtation, but Chambers tried to save their 10-year-marriage. They announced their split on July 10th.

Meanwhile, James has canceled some interviews amid the fracas, but has given others. She confirmed to the Guardian that her long-term relationship with Matt Smith was over, but she wouldn't comment on the other rumors, or her reported fling with Chris Evans over the summer.

She did share insight into her state of mind and character, explaining that the roles she plays deeply influence her. James said: "it's weird to wonder if I'd be a different person if I hadn't played them. That's quite a depressing thought, actually. You have to have a greater sense of self, which I suppose I'm working on."

James said: "with art and life, it's never black and white, is it? Everything happens in the grey area, and in the colour. I think conversations about things that are difficult can become very much one side versus the other. We're in a time where I feel things become very moralistic, and then it's very difficult to explore around the edges."


JENNIFER ANISTON CASTS VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN, IMPLORES PEOPLE TO NOT VOTE FOR KANYE WEST

Don't tell Kim, but Jennifer Aniston is coming out against her husband Kanye West. The Friends alum cast her ballot early in the presidential election, and shared the news on Instagram. Aniston has publicly endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for president, and she is continuing to stump for them, telling followers that there is too much at stake with LGBTQ and women's rights to vote casually.

She wrote: "Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can't do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science... too many people have died. I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we're on right now... your daughters, the LGBTQ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting)."

She added: "This whole thing isn't about one candidate or one single issue, it's about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. PS - It's not funny to vote for Kanye. I don't know how else to say it. Please be responsible."
