‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Delayed Because of COVID-19

Well Ms. Rona, you had to go and ruin one more thing I cared about. You closed all of the New Public Libraries, shut down Broadway, moved Coachella to October, and now you've messed with one of the movies I was most excited about this summer.

How to Have Hufflepuff Spirit During COVID-19

If you’re a Hufflepuff, today is your day. If you’ve been sorted into this house, you are dedicated, honest, hard-working and loyal. Most Hufflepuffs correspond to the element of earth. So you all probably have some plants to tend to, which is just darling. It’s rough out here for everyone right now, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t celebrate!

Wear your house colors with pride

If you have your robes, wear them to go nowhere. If you don’t have any robes, find whatever you have in yellow and black and slap it on.

7 Quotes to Celebrate Hufflepuff Pride Day

1. “I’ll teach the lot, and treat them just the same” – Helga Hufflepuff

This first quote comes from, of course, the founder of the Hufflepuff house. This quote shows that not only will a Hufflepuff learn, but they will be treated kindly and with respect.

 

2. “I feel that if a single pupil wants to come, then the school ought to remain open for that pupil.” – Pomona Sprout

This quote comes from the head of herbology herself, Professor Sprout. This quote embodies what it means to be a Hufflepuff, caring about the well being of everyone, even if that everyone is only one individual.

3. “Forgive and forget, I say, we ought to give Peeves a second chance ” – The fat Friar

This quote from The Fat Friar shows a great deal about the character of a Hufflepuff. Even though Peeves has done wrong, they should still forgive him because everyone deserves a redemption.

 

 

4. “Those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil.” – J.K Rowling

This quote comes not from a character but from the creator herself, J.K Rowling. If anyone knows the Hufflepuff house best it is going to be the woman who wrote the books. Her quote shows what it truly means to be part of the Honey Badger house; patient, true, and unafraid.

5. “They didn’t want to show off, they weren’t being reckless, that’s the essence of Hufflepuff.”- J.K Rowling

Image via Harry Potter Wiki

 

When asked if any Hufflepuffs stayed behind to fight in the battle of Hogwarts, she said that virtually all of them did, followed by this quote. They wanted to fight because it was the right thing to do, not for any sense of pride or validation.

 

6.  “Only the gentle are ever really strong.” – James Dean

Okay so James Dean obviously wasn’t talking about Hufflepuffs but this quote really describes those sorted into the house to a tee. The Hufflepuffs are often passed on because they are seen as weak, when that couldn’t be further from the truth. They are the strongest, because they care.

 

7. “My philosophy is if you worry, you suffer twice.” – Newt Scamander

This final quote is not only a synopsis of a Hufflepuff, but advice. Do not worry, because worrying is half the battle. Put your best foot forward, and you’ll be okay.

Stream These Exclusive New Releases At Home

In the wake of this pandemic, places are shutting down. Restaurants, bars, and movie theaters are no longer open to the public until further notice. So, to make this shut down a bit smoother for people, the movies that were going to be released in theaters this month, are now going to be available to watch at home.

Universal Pictures will be switching the movies currently in theaters, such as Emma, The Invisible Man, and The Huntto make them available to watch at home, where they will remain yours for 48 hours at a price of $19.99. You can watch them on cable demand services, and they will also be up for rent on GooglePlay, iTunes, Amazon Prime, and FandangoNow.  During a time as stressful as a pandemic, this offers an invaluable service to those stuck at home.

Movies usually have a delay of three months before they are made available for home viewing, but now there is no need to wait. Some film releases are being delayed, however, being that they are destined to be big hits, such as Disney’s live action Mulan, while the new Fast and the Furious has been pushed back a year. Disney + even added Frozen 2 to their streaming service a few months in advance. These movies are the little things that will make getting through this quarantine easier. It’s hard on movie theaters, and other establishments like restaurants, to get through this time, but everyone is doing the best they can. Right now, it’s important to stay indoors, watch a movie, and wash your hands.

Endgame for Daniel Radcliffe Play

The Old Vic theater in London, England, have cancelled all remaining performances of Samuel Beckett’s play Endgame, starring Daniel Radcliffe, amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The play, which began its run in January, was due to continue until March 28th, meaning that this move from the theater scraps the final two weeks. This is the first major production to cease performances in London, which comes as a surprise considering the total shutdown of New York City’s Broadway last week.

 

This decision has been made by the Old Vic, given current advisories to practice social distancing, and limit crowds. In their official statement, the theater said they are “aware of our employees’ financial dependence on work being presented and tickets being purchased”. As such, they are asking customers to consider their ticket price as a donation, rather than requesting a full refund, an act that would be “financially devastating.” The company have incentivized this move, offering benefits to those who waive the refund.

For those who donate, we are able to offer a link to an exclusive video recording of the entire production of Endgame, captured earlier in the run, a private video message of appreciation from the cast, and a free Friends membership entitling you to Priority Booking valid for one year.

 

The UK government has elected not to impose any restrictions on movements or gatherings and much of London’s theater scene remains unaltered by the current pandemic. As the situation evolves, so too does the global response, and updates for the London performances can be found here.
