Bella Thorne might be scary in real life, but a new movie coming to Netflix this month is giving her a chance to be truly terrifying. The actress has a supporting role in “The Babysitter,” a new horror/comedy hybrid film that follows a young boy’s efforts to avoid being a human sacrifice for a bunch of horny teenagers.

Lady Gaga has dropped another teaser for her upcoming Netflix documentary. The latest look at “Five Foot Two” opens with Gaga navigating a crowd of fans before a frenetic series of cuts shows off what the film promises.
Shots of Gaga prepping for the Super Bowl and getting a “Joanne” tattoo fly by rapidly. Quick cuts to the “Perfect Illusion” music video and a painful looking doctor’s appointment add to the frantic pace of drama and intrigue.
One of the few breaks in the action comes as Gaga looks ready to hop into the back seat of a vintage ride, saying, “Let’s get stoned in grandpa’s car.” Immediately after that, Gaga is seen putting her CD in front of others at a Wal-Mart before cops bust her for recording in the store.
Lady Gaga may be tiny, but she made a big announcement Thursday morning. As the “Joanne World Tour” marches on, Gaga dropped the news that Netflix is putting out a documentary all about her. Named “Five Foot Two” in reference to Gaga’s heigh, the doc is due out September 22. Gaga dropped five teasers, each offering up a different side of what the film promises.
One clip features Gaga underwater while a recording of a panicked conversation about how she’s “alone” in “total silence” plays. Another shows her being lifted by suspension wires in a Super Bowl halftime show practice set to dramatic choir music. In yet another, Gaga admits that she’s only seen bits and pieces of the doc so far, and doesn’t plan on watching it before the official release.
When a three-year-old picture of Rihanna sitting next to Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o started making the rounds on Twitter last month, it was just a laugh. A fan had tweeted that the pic looked like a scene from a buddy movie starring the two as scammers who preyed on “rich white men.”
Rihanna and Lupita both got on board with the idea, as did Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay and writer Issa Rae. Now, that dream team has apparently found a production company to get behind it.
That report says that Issa is already drafting a script and intends to give credit to the original tweeter. It looks like shooting for the film will start in 2018 after Ava completes her current film.
Check out Ava’s new tweet about the production below.

Bella Thorne stays busy. The latest news on the career front for Bella is her movie “You Get Me” is part of a new deal between Netflix and Awesomeness, the film’s distributor. According to a Variety, Bella’s movies will hit the streaming service on June 16.
The film, which is “billed as a teen version of ‘Fatal Attraction,'” is part of a blitz by Awesomeness to secure its stake in the Generation Z market. Targeting an audience born around the year 2000, the company is including Bella’s movie in a slate of programming aimed at a teenage demographic.
In discussing the movie last year, Bella said she was excited for fans to see the side of her that’s “a little bit crazy.” She plays a seductress who gets Taylor John Smith’s character into a mess when they hook up during a fight with his girlfriend. Things get more complicated when Bella, who plays a new girl in town, has eyes for someone else in school.
See a tweet from Awesomeness with a screenshot from the movie below, plus check out a post from Bella about the release date.

“13 Reason Why,” the new Netflix original that Selena Gomez is producing, got high praise from The Hollywood Reporter ahead of its March 31 release on the streaming service. While it’s difficult to say whether or not reviewer Daniel Feinberg actually liked the series, he certainly said all the right things to get a quote from his piece used as a blurb in future promotional materials.
