The Matthew Kennedy (Inheritance) script will see Beckinsale play top level CIA agent Avery Graves who is blackmailed by terrorists into betraying her own country to save her kidnapped husband.

Wait a Moment.. Kate and Jason Momoa Aren’t Dating


Written by Joshua on April 06 2022

Nothing to it! Jason Momoa is clarifying his relationship status after he was spotted offering his jacket to Kate Beckinsale outside of the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty.

The Aquaman star, 42, told Extra on Monday, April 4, that he and Beckinsale, 48, were simply having a friendly chat after the March 27 awards show. “It was cray,” Momoa said of the speculation. “[I] have a conversation with a woman about her country, I was in England doing Aquaman 2. Everyone is like, ‘Are you dating?’ No, no, it was chivalry. The woman was cold.”

Fans began to wonder whether the Hawaii native had already moved on after splitting from estranged wife Lisa Bonet when he was photographed with the Underworld actress in Los Angeles last month. In pics published by the Daily Mail, Momoa and Beckinsale gazed into each other’s eyes while they were deep in conversation. Though the twosome appeared cozy, the Game of Thrones alum denies it was anything more than platonic.

“Absolutely not, not together,” he told Extra. “She is very nice. I was being very nice, just being a gentleman. Now I am not giving my coat to anyone.”

Momoa shares children Lola, 14, and Nakoa-Wolf, 13, with Bonet, 54, whom he wed in 2017 after more than a decade together. The pair announced their separation via Instagram in January.

“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding ~and our family is of no exception… feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring And so~ We share our Family news~ That we are parting ways in marriage,” they noted in a joint statement. “We share this not because we think it’s newsworthy ~ But so that~ as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty.”

The duo added, “The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other ~to be who we are learning to become. Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life and our Children. Teaching our Children What’s possible.”

Fans were shocked to see the High Fidelity actress and the Dune star go their separate ways, but a source exclusively told Us Weekly that the now-estranged couple were “different” in major ways. “He was jovial, loud and the center of attention, and Lisa was always cool, calm and subdued,” the insider explained in January. “That energy really started to cause friction because they wanted to live different lives.”

Despite their breakup, Momoa has made it clear that he and Bonet will always be part of each other’s lives. The Baywatch: Hawaii alum even supported former stepdaughter Zoë Kravitz at the premiere of her movie The Batman last month.

“We’re just so proud. Lisa couldn’t be here so we’re representing, me and the babies,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the event, which he attended with Lola and Nakoa-Wolf. “We’re very excited to just be here. … It’s still family, you know?”

Beckinsale, for her part, was previously married to Len Wiseman from 2004 to 2019. She shares daughter Lily, 23, with ex Michael Sheen. The Serendipity star has since been linked to Machine Gun Kelly, Pete Davidson and Goody Grace.

Amazon Sets Summer Streaming Date For Kate Beckinsale Action Movie ‘Jolt’


Written by Joshua on June 20 2021

Amazon will drop the Millennium Media Kate Beckinsale action movie Jolt on July 23.

The pic, directed by Tanya Wexler and written by Scott Wascha, also stars Bobby Cannavale, Jai Courtney, Laverne Cox, David Bradley, Ori Pfeffer, Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci.

Jolt centers around Lindy, a beautiful, sardonically-funny woman with a painful secret: Due to a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, she experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device. Unable to find love and connection in a world that fears her bizarre condition, she finally trusts a man long enough to fall in love, only to find him murdered the next day. Heartbroken and enraged, she embarks on a revenge-filled mission to find his killer, while also being pursued by the police as the crime’s prime suspect.

Millennium also has the Ryan Reynolds-Samuel L. Jackson sequel The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard out this weekend via Lionsgate in theaters which is set to gross around $15M over five days. The pic in previews and two day’s worth of grosses has made over $5M at the domestic B.O.

Kate Beckinsale Is Stronger Than She’s Ever Been


Written by Claudia on December 19 2019

On the October evening that Los Angeles wildfires closed in on Kate Beckinsale’s neighborhood and forced her to evacuate, it was the second threat she’d received that night. “I had a prowler at 1 a.m.,” she says. And by “prowler,” she means a creepy man banging on her door forcing her to call 911. Hours after the police left, Kate’s attention was drawn to her front door again—this time to a “giant fireball” just beyond it, advancing at a terrifying pace. “I was like, ‘Okay, this is the next thing,’” she says, catching her breath, her eyes widening as she recalls how she scooped up her cats, Clive and Willow, her dogs, Ingrid and Myf, their food, her passport, and left. The Widow actress spent the next week in a hotel, feeling grateful she and her creatures were safe.

Just a week later, we’re at a restaurant in Brentwood and Kate—who has arrived in a black tank top, heels, and the longest, thickest curls—has been cleared to move back into her house. Politely, she explains that in her more than 20 years of being famous, she’s found that writers often get her wrong. Because of her film roles, people assume she spends a lot of time walking around with a solemn expression, or angled optimally on a red carpet. In fact, she says, she hates posing and finds photo shoots mortifying. During them, she pictures her four stepbrothers rolling their eyes. “Which is healthy,” she says. “I think once you get comfortable with that, you’ve left the building.” Instagram, she notes, has been helpful in communicating to people what she’s really like. “I’m not a social media person, but it’s nice to have this little corner that’s my vibe,” she says, removing a lime from her fizzy water (a histamine intolerance).



So what is Kate Beckinsale actually like? On this day, she is witty and wry; on social media, she is irreverent and cheeky; in every reality, she is sharp and articulate. She has the self-possession of her 46 years while also somehow looking like she might be elected homecoming queen at an area university. Her trainer, Brad Siskind of Gunnar Peterson’s gym, observes that she gets right down to business. “The whole hour is work,” he says.
