A family, a house in the suburbs, a high-profile PR job, brilliant bartending skills and an excessive collection of Louboutins. Everything about Emily (Blake Lively) seems to be absolutely perfect, unless you make the mistake of becoming her friend– the mistake Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) did.

Whoever is chosen for the cover of a magazine is a widely publicized decision. Historically, there has been limited diversity featured in fashion. This year, women of color were highly represented in the September issue. Beyonce was posed on the cover of “Vogue,” Rihanna on “British Vogue,” as well as Tiffany Haddish on “Glamour” and Zendaya on “Marie Claire.”

“A Quiet Place” was written and directed by “The Office” star John Krasinski, who also starred in the film.
Characters played by himself and his real-life wife, Emily Blunt, raise three kids in a post-alien apocalypse. Their eldest child, played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf. Because of this, the family is well-versed in sign language. The alien creatures don’t have eyes; they have strong hearing that can detect any loud sound. Therefore, the family moves slowly and tiptoes everywhere that isn’t white sand laid down to muffle their footsteps.
