The past few weeks have been great for releases in the music and film industry. Probably the most anticipated release of the year, Marvel’s ETERNALS was released on November 5. Some critics and people have been harsh to this film and one of the reasons for this backlash might be the inclusion of an LGBTQ+ character. The movie is packed with diversity from Asian to black a-list actors. One spoiler I’d give you is Harry Styles is also a part of this film.
Moving on, Netflix’s SQUID GAME has officially been renewed for a second season. Previously, the writer of Squid Game stated that he wanted to tell the story of the FRONT MAN. The second season has already sparked a lot of excitement.
Moving to music releases,
SILK SONIC (Bruno mars and Anderson Paak) released their album, AN EVENING WITH SILK SONIC.

Comprising of 30 tracks, Taylor Swift released the album RED (Taylor’s version) yesterday.
The album immediately shot to #1 on multiple streaming charts worldwide. In the first 24 hours, the album was streamed 90.6 million times on Spotify alone; hence breaking the biggest album debut for a female artist. She also released a short film for the track ALL TOO WELL (10-minute version). Sadie Sink, Dylan O’Brien and Taylor herself starred in the short film.
From personal experience, keep tissues by your side while watching the short film. Tears will be shed, believe me.
