Netflix Changed Avengers: Infinity War Description After Complaints

Wow. Thanos really does control the universe. Netflix just started streaming Avengers: Infinity War on Christmas Day, but it wasn’t quite received with a loving embrace. First, there were issues finding the title on Netflix. Then, when fans did find it, some took issue with the description of Thanos as a “sociopath.” Apparently Netflix changed the description for a few fans, labeling Thanos a “so-called savior.”

Here is the original Netflix synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War:

For the record, that is still what I see on my screen. But some fans took to Twitter to complain that Thanos was not a “sociopath,” asking Netflix to change the description. Comicbook documented some of those tweets, and later revealed the streamer’s updated description for the MCU movie:

Comicbook shared a screenshot showing that is indeed what was posted, whether just for a select group or only for a limited time. Either way, I don’t see it.

But they clearly bowed to some Team Thanos pressure out there. Heck, maybe the Russo Brothers nudged them to do it. This seems like their kind of fun fan trolling. And there are definitely Thanos defenders out there, arguing that he had a point in snapping away half the population to achieve supply-and-demand balance. I’m particularly fond of a Quora thread asking “How would you defend Thanos if you were his attorney?”

At any rate, Team Thanos scored a minor victory with that Netflix description change, for whoever can see it when they log in.

But that’s another issue. Fans expected Avengers: Infinity War to have prominence when they logged into Netflix, but instead they had to search around for it. Netflix addressed the issue, pointing out that it’s also just for U.S. viewers, which ticked off the international users:

All this Thanos worship! So U.S. fans who couldn’t find Avengers: Infinity War were mad. International fans who didn’t have it available were mad. Team Thanos fans were mad. And now those of us who are pretty darn sure Thanos is actually a (fictional, but still) sociopath are not mad, but we’re just shaking our heads at this world.

The insanity will continue with Avengers: Endgame, which arrives in theaters April 26, 2019. If you’re curious about what Thanos is up to post-Decimation, he’s apparently just chilling. Maybe Netflix and chilling at this point, chuckling as he watches his children defend him online.

9 TV Shows and Movies to Watch the Week of December 30, 2018

It’s officially 2019, which is exciting, but the bad news is there’s a bit of a lull in new TV shows and movies. No worries, though: There are still some fun things happening in entertainment this week to ease you into the new year. For one: The Masked Singer, a new music competition show that’s just as wild as it sounds. Also, a horror movie about escape rooms! I’m already shaking.

Below, all the things to bookmark for this week:

The Orville: Seth MacFarlane’s whacky space comedy is back for a second season because…of course it is! Fans of Family Guy should tune in to this two-hour premiere. 8 P.M. ET on Fox

Dick Clark’s Primetime New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest: Watching this is honestly better than going out on New Year’s Eve. (For the record: Going out on NYE is overrated—and so is having a midnight kiss.) 10 P.M. ET on ABC

Taylor Swift Reputation Stadium Tour: No worries if you missed Swift’s electric Reputation concert tour on the road. Netflix filmed a special, and it’s honestly better than sitting in the nose bleeds.Streaming on Netflix

A Series of Unfortunate Events: The last four books of Lemony Snicket’s hit series—The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril, and The End—will come to life in the third and final season of this Netflix show. Streaming on Netflix

grown-ish: Season two of this spinoff, starring Yara Shahidi and Francia Raisa, kicks off tonight. Here’s to another chapter of Zoey Johnson’s college shenanigans. TBD time on Freeform

The Masked Singer: This new singing show has its contestants, who are famous singers, wear costumes to disguise their identities. So, basically it’s The Voice meets every Pixar movie in existence. 9 P.M. ET on Fox

Gotham: Season five of Fox’s popular series, which pulls from Batman and the DC Comics universe, begins this evening. It’s Ben McKenzie’s second best role ever! (His first, obviously, is The OC.) 8 P.M. ET on Fox

Escape Room: Strangers have to complete an escape room that’s actually terrifying and lethal. It’s the kitschy version of Saw you didn’t know you needed. (Well, actually, do we need this? Catch me on opening night.) In theaters

Annihilation: Natalie Portman and Gina Rodriguez star in this gripping thriller about a group of female scientists who investigate a parallel universe called The Shimmer. It’s like Stranger Things but with an Oscar winner. Streaming on Hulu

Hangover Cures Celebrities Swear By

If there’s one subset of people whose advice we’d unequivocally trust about how to feel human again after a long night of drinking, it’s celebrities. Who else has a job where cocktail parties, premieres, and VIP events are practically mandatory? And while, obviously, not every famous person drinks to excess—or even drinks at all—you can bet plenty do at least sometimes, so it makes sense that they’ve figured out ways to have as much fun as possible then be bright-eyed and ready to work a few hours later. So, in the spirit of party season, we’ve rounded up 12 celebrity hangover cures—including Gwyneth’s baths, Khloe’s head-clearing yoga move, and Julia’s Champagne and juice hybrid—that just might work next time you’ve had one or three too many.

The Voice airs on Mondays on NBC.

The Best Music Moments of 2018

Who killed it in music this year? Well, there are several names that come to mind. First and foremost, there’s Beyoncé, whose Coachella set was a cultural tour-de-force. There was also Taylor Swift, who embarked on her highly-anticipated Reputation Stadium Tour, and didn’t disappoint. It was so good, in fact, it’s becoming a Netflix special.) Along the way we also received some A+ albums (welcome back, Robyn), songs (“Thank U, Next,” anyone?), and music videos (again…”Thank U, Next”). So much happened on the charts this year that we really are far from the shallow now. Yes, that pun was completely intended.

Below, Glamour‘s music highlights for 2018.

Best-Selling Drugstore Beauty Products of 2018

It’s been a big year for drugstore beauty, but maybe none so more than CVS. In April, the drugstore giant announced it was doing away with photoshop in its house beauty ads; plus, it’d now be holding brands accountable to follow suit. On top of that, the drugstore chain also recently introduced in-store K-beauty boutiques, vowed to take any products with parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde off shelves by 2019, and added cool brands like Mineral Fusion, Tigi, and CND to its full roster of stuff.

But for all the great niche finds, the top-selling beauty products at CVS this year were a ton of classic, timeless mainstays that you’ve probably been using since you were, like, 15. Scroll on through to see what drugstore beauty products we all couldn’t get enough of this year.

Rupert Grint Can’t Watch Past The Third Harry Potter Movie

Harry Potter‘s Rupert Grint wants to put Ron Weasley behind him. The actor gave 10 years, including a significant amount of his childhood, to J.K. Rowling’s lovable red-headed oaf in the $10 billion-earning franchise.

It has been seven years since Rupert Grint played the wizard alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson in the series closer, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Could it be time for the actor to watch himself in his most iconic role? While the actor has revisited his early work in the franchise, he won’t be bingeing all the Harry Potter movies anytime soon. In his words:

As Rupert Grint has slowly wiggled his way back into the spotlight for his recent roles in television shows such as Sick Note, Snatch, and The ABC Murders, he’s been open about his long history as the star of the Harry Potter films.

It doesn’t sound like it was easy. Rupert Grint can barely remember his life before he nabbed the role at 10-years-old. He’s said that the more he played Ron, the more he started disappearing into the role, finding it hard to separate himself from the character.

His difficulty with watching the films after Prisoner of Azkaban makes sense, as the 30-year-old actor has talked about how for the first few films he felt like he was living the dream as a Harry Potter star — he was a huge fan of the books when he auditioned. However, as he got older and had to do red carpets and press tours, the responsibility of the character started to weigh on him.

But no matter what he does, it’s all about Harry Potter. In a recent interview with Radio Times about the BBC1 series starring John Malkovich, talk of the wizarding world inevitably found its way to the center of the conversation.

While the franchise has moved forward with the Fantastic Beasts films, Rupert Grint will perhaps always be remembered best as Ron Weasley.

Kelsea Ballerini’s New Years Eve 2018 Playlist and 2019 Resolutions

December has always been a special month for Kelsea Ballerini: Two years ago on Christmas Day, she got engaged to fellow country singer Morgan Evans. In December 2017, she and Morgan became husband and wife, and on December 2 they celebrated their first anniversary. To cap it all off, Ballerini, 25, will close out the year with her first performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

“It’s a perfect way to end a beautiful year and begin this next season,” Ballerini tells Glamour.com. “I’ve watched New Year’s Rockin’ Eve every year growing up, so I can’t wait to count down to midnight and jam!”

Personal highlights aside, 2018 was full of professional achievements: She celebrated the success of her third studio album, Unapologetically, toured with Keith Urban, collaborated with The Chainsmokers, joined The Voice as a special coach, and was nominated for her second Grammy award (Best Country Album). “This was a year of pushing myself,” she says. “Everything was intentionally out of my comfort zone.”

Ballerini says that because of those risks, she feels stronger as an artist and more inspired than ever. Case in point: Next month she’ll join Kelly Clarkson on “The Miss Me More” tour, and then in February it’s off to the Grammys.

Until then—and before the ball drops—we asked Ballerini to take one more look back and tell us about the songs that meant the most to her this year. From a “badass” jam to a Taylor Swift fave, there’s something for everyone. Play on!

“Without Me” by Halsey

“[You can] leave all the heartbreak behind with this jam.”

“Dance to This” (ft. Ariana Grande) by Troye Sivan

“Whether you’re celebrating with friends and family [at home] or out at a big party, this one makes you move.”

“La Di Da” by Lennon Stella

“[My] 2019 resolution to things that don’t matter: ‘la da da di da.’”

“Closer to You” by Carly Pearce

“This one is for all the new lovers that 2018 brought together. The best feeling in the world!”

“The Way You Look Tonight” by Michael Bublé

“This song makes all of my party playlists. It’s the classic that takes everyone to a sweet, nostalgic place.”

“Get the Party Started” by P!nk

“This is the perfect song to play when you’re getting your glitter on before the big night. Plus, singing along to P!nk in the mirror makes you feel like a badass.”

“Day Drunk” by Morgan Evans

“I get to share my midnight kiss with this handsome guy, and this song can put anyone in a celebratory mood.”

“This Feeling” by The Chainsmokers (ft. me!)

“Being a part of this song has been one of my favorite parts of 2018. I love these guys, and I love the message of always leading with your heart.”

“There’s No Way” by Lauv (ft. Julia Michaels)

“Two of my favorite voices and songwriters together made one of my favorite jams of the year.”
