IUC Exclusive: Trailer for New Film; Brad and Sienna; Bobby Vans On The Park

Posted on June 29th, 2017 by HisHighness in IUC:Bits, IUC:Entertainment

- Here’s the trailer for my new film about Hollywood, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters and contemporary antisemitism. Look forward to your thoughts. Youtube

- Brad and Sienna? Looks like they’re for real. Daily Telegraph

- IUC Restaurant of the Month: Hands down, Bobby Vans’ Central Park South location in NYC is above and beyond every other steakhouse in Manhattan. Amazing service combined with the finest cut steaks anywhere, Bobby Vans is a culinary gem. This location is amazing because you can eat outside on the terrace and enjoy NYC people watching until your heart is content. The salad, seafood appetizer and desert were all top notch. No detail was spared at this incredible eatery on the park. A must stop for anyone seeking an affordable and amazing dining experience.

    The silence is deafening here. Ian…you say your new film is about HW? I thought Roger Waters lived in the Hamptons. I agree with you, that it seems there has been a huge flux of anti-Semitism in the last 7-8 yrs. I think it has a lot to do with Obama…(but that’s just my opinion). Lines have been drawn, and people have had to choose a side. I have to side with Israel. You should interview Thom Yorke, he seems to have a strong opinion about this. Good Luck.

    Mr. Waters is a damn good musician and an anti-war, pro-peace gentleman, so if you’re trying to slime him, then you and Israel must be for wars and hate peace, a mirror of the brutal, sadistic and illegal Israeli operation of Palestine.

    @Up the Coast:
    Hello UTC. I agree totally w/ your comment. I too side with Israel.

    It’s refreshing to be able to discuss things other than the late Brangelina, which we all knew couldn’t last beyond the paps attention to them. The world is crazy today with everyone being influenced to be part of a group and share their vitriolic spewings. Hopefully those stirring up the B.S. will ultimately fail in their rhetoric.

    We’ve been keeping an eye on all news about the insane dictator of North Korea, Kim Jung-um. Over fifty years dealing w/ this insanity, and it’s still ongoing. Dangerous times these days though. He now has an ICBM loaded on Chinese launchers, with Chinese tubes to carry them.

  4. Up the Coast said on July 12th, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    @Patty Anne:
    I am surprised that Brangelina held on as long as they did. I don’t even want to know wth is going on under those shrouds joLIE wears…~shudder~
    Did you see the pics of Affleck and his gf? The only thing holding those two together, imo, was the thrill of the ‘affair’. Now that it’s in the open…he will bore of it. He has a smile on his face…but he looks like he11.

    I’m tired of the negativity…but I “feel” like there is a shift coming :) Conservatism is the new counter-culture. <3

    @Up the Coast:
    Interesting how culture reverses itself over and over. I’m looking fwd to it happening again, as I’m sick to death of this atmosphere of stupidity and entitlement.

    I always felt Brangelina wouldn’t last, and felt it was created by all three for: fame beyond their separate abilities; wealth they’d never amass otherwise, and freedom to do what projects they wanted , when they wanted to do them. It simply took longer than I felt it should have to reach that point.

    The trailer is great, and a lot of the comments to the trailer are a reminder that many of the same people who want Jews out of ‘Palestine’ don’t want them to be anywhere else, either. Their objection is not to the proper borders of the Jewish state, or even the existence of a Jewish state, but to the existence of Jews.

    Another day, another convenient illness for Angelina. Today’s issues: hypertension and bells palsy. Oh and the preventative mastectomy has now been upgraded to an actual cancer scare – albeit a brief one. I always said that once she’d done the cancer story there would be nowhere else to go PR-wise – I mean how do you trump that? Oh and apparently these days she is actually making good on her promise to “stay at home and become a grandma” (wonders will never cease!). It’s not entirely clear whether this was a decision of her own making or not though…

  8. LG said on July 26th, 2017 at 9:17 pm

    I think the lines that made me chuckle the most were how she was
    becoming a “better homemaker”, “picking up dog poop, cleaning
    dishes, reading bedtime stories.” Clearly the real meaning behind
    those few innocent sentences was that being a normal average
    mum was something she never had to do before so all these
    homemaking skills are new to her.

  9. Keane said on July 30th, 2017 at 2:08 pm

    Such bad press for Angelina – think this is Brad getting his own back:



  10. Keane said on August 6th, 2017 at 3:14 pm

    So Angelina is being proved to be a liar finally – after all this time! Not such a master of spin now is she?

  11. LG said on August 9th, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    What’s quite hilarious about Vanity Fair releasing the transcript of the
    interview is that her unedited words were quite unintelligible and what they
    in turn published “tidied up” that incoherence.

  12. Keane said on August 26th, 2017 at 4:13 pm



  13. Keane said on August 26th, 2017 at 4:26 pm

    Great article from the New York Post and another one along the same lines in British Grazia (who used to almost exclusively do her PR for her) talking about how she has lost control of her own narrative:


    For me Angelina is the living embodiment of the Icarus fable – she flew too high and thought she could be things that were way beyond the scope of her life (be the first female President, lead the UN, become a member of the House of Lords) and she got burnt (eventually). The funny thing for me is that she now has these six children on her hands who she is used to spending $1 million a year on nannies for. Then there are the private tutors, the personal chefs, the security detail and the PA, all of which she cannot live without. I would imagine the political advisers have been let go now but still she has a wage bill of millions of dollars a year for her staff to pay for and not a great deal coming in (which is why she is being increasingly papped near Target and Toys R Us – hey it’s a pay cheque). I think what would be hilarious would be if she genuinely had to look after the six children she acquired, like any other parent does. The reality would be that she couldn’t do it to save her life and would probably send them off to boarding school as preference (the kids begged her to let then go she would say of course, much against her will). So amusing to watch the Angelina bubble finally burst!

  14. Keane said on September 2nd, 2017 at 6:20 pm

    Well it was obvious she needed the money but does he? Guess he thinks it’s the easiest way to promote his films. Or is this just testing the waters?

  15. Up the Coast said on September 2nd, 2017 at 6:52 pm


    It was then, just seven weeks ago, that ‘Brangelina’, as the world has come to know Hollywood’s the most famous couple, stood face-to-face for the first time in ten months. ‘Brad took the first step forward,’ says the couple’s biographer Ian Halperin. ‘Then they collapsed into each other’s arms.’

    joLIE thinks that her and Brad are the new Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. Seriously??? :lol:

  16. Keane said on September 2nd, 2017 at 8:17 pm

    Anyway – it was a creative piece at least Ian I’ll give you that!

  17. LG said on September 2nd, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    @Up the Coast:
    ?!?!?!?!?!???!!!……Now I’m confused

  18. LG said on September 2nd, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    Brangelina recoupling! I must have gone to sleep and woken up
    in an alternate universe, one that completely does not make sense.

  19. LG said on September 2nd, 2017 at 11:50 pm

    I have a theory for Ian’s “rose coloured glass” quoted comments in
    the Daily Mail article.

    Whilst undercover as Brad’s “sober chef” he accidently stumbled upon
    a bottle of asprin tablets but unbeknownst to him it was really a bottle of
    some kind of hallucinogenic or ecstacy pills. He takes one because he
    has a throbbing headache, (it’s stessful being undercover), goes home
    and before he can say “pass the bong” , voila, he’s hallucinating that
    Brad and Angelina are back together.

  20. Keane said on September 3rd, 2017 at 9:17 am


    I think this is the only logical explanation for that article… well that and the fact that Ange has a film to promote at the moment. However the last time she did this without him being on board he swiftly denied it through Gossip Cop. Let’s see what he does this time….

  21. Keane said on September 3rd, 2017 at 12:34 pm

    It’s the “losing control of her narrative” bit that gets me. One minute it’s: “look at Brad – he so evil!”, the next minute it’s: “ok, he’s not so bad really, we’ll always be a family” (sob, sob, look at me eating tarantulas etc). Then: “I am a noble single parent living in reduced circumstances in a home formerly owned by Cecil B Demille”. Oopsie that fell a bit flat, how about: “Brad and I are practically the next Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, we just can’t quit each other!” One of these will work won’t they, won’t they? (Mild panic rising). Hilarious!

  22. Keane said on September 3rd, 2017 at 12:46 pm

    Ok so this is my take on this: Ange is not booking any jobs any more. She still needs a few million dollars a year to fulfil her basic living requirements. Brad knows that if she can’t pay for it, he will have to, under the terms of their divorce deal. Hence it makes more financial sense for them to stay together for a bit until her image can be successfully rehabilitated. Just an idea!

  23. Up the Coast said on September 3rd, 2017 at 4:12 pm

    :lol: Your theory is as good as any other. She does have a movie to ‘pimp out’, so there’s that…but it is weird how her narrative always changes with the wind. So how did Ian get on her payroll?

  24. Keane said on September 3rd, 2017 at 4:44 pm

    Oh no POOR ANGIE!!!


    How will she survive with all these trials and tribulations? I mean, going through chemo is nothing in comparison to what Poor Angie is having to live with… :-(

  25. Keane said on September 3rd, 2017 at 5:40 pm

    Such an accurate comment on TDM website:

    Jolie should learn a thing or two from Jennifer Aniston – stay strong, keep it private. Angelina at least doesn’t have an insensitive ex husband and the other woman constantly rubbing it in, being smug about being together . All the baby pictures sold for millions of dollars to proclaim to the world what she did not have . The smug interviews that should have been more sensitive . But then Angelina Jolie is in a worse spot- crazy woman with six kids. Hard for a sane man to even touch her with a ten foot pole. Who knows though- the world is still a mixed population. Good luck Angelina Jolie.

  26. Keane said on September 3rd, 2017 at 5:42 pm

    Ah well, it worked for a hot minute:


  27. Keane said on September 4th, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    The martyrdom continues: no-one will let poor Angie be a full-time Director, she is being forced back into taking tens of millions of dollars for prancing about in front of a camera for a couple of months!


    And after taking a full year off work for the selfless task of looking after her own children as well – the shame!

  28. Keane said on September 4th, 2017 at 4:21 pm

    It’s so funny how she always leads with how much time she has taken off to devote to her children when she hasn’t stopped pushing herself in our faces for months!


  29. LG said on September 5th, 2017 at 5:38 am

    @Up the Coast:
    I agree Keane, the martyrdom is just too much and like UTC I believe
    her narrative is all over the place. But what confuses me more is
    Ian’s participation in the latest narrative.

    Only a year ago he was saying the marriage was a fraud and now he’s
    got the inside scoop on a possible reconciliation.

    I can see Brad perhaps swallowing some pride in order to help build a
    positive perception of her so that she is not dependent on him financially.
    But Ian being quoted about a tearful meeting between the two of them,
    spiritual counselling for her, Brad will be a better parent blah blah, no
    more travelling around the globe and finally how Hollywood loves a
    happy ending seems really odd coming out of his mouth.

  30. Keane said on September 5th, 2017 at 8:31 am


    I agree with you LG – perhaps Ian can enlighten us!

  31. Up the Coast said on September 5th, 2017 at 7:51 pm

    joLIE wants to plant the seed that she is the ‘new’ Liz Taylor becuz she wants to play Cleopatra (again). She’s a broken record…and a spoiled brat who doesn’t want to take ‘no’ for an answer. She’s got to start scrounging up her next gig. I wonder, when will she start sending the kids out on jobs? :lol: She will make a hideous stage mother.

  32. Keane said on September 15th, 2017 at 1:03 pm

    Dearie me we do not seem to be able to get away from her at the moment do we? Her mug has been all over the place in the news this week for a netflix film of all things – not exactly a big deal. When will she ever leave us alone and give us a break from her face? I feel like we could all do with one!
