Chloe Zhao’s ‘Eternals’ falls flat, stuck surrounded with political controversy and questionable character choices
In the days leading up to its Nov. 5 release, Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) newest film “Eternals” already found itself embroiled in controversy. Coming off her award-winning film “Nomadland,” director Chloe Zhao creates an interesting outline of a world, but leaves the sketches unfinished.

Brad Pitt Challenges Ruling In Custody Battle With Angelina Jolie
WASHINGTON – As the back-and-forth continues in Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s heated custody case, lawyers of the “Fury” actor have requested a review after an appeals court effectively revoked his joint custody in July. Pitt scored a win in May 2021 when he was tentatively granted joint custody of their five minor children. This led Jolie to try to discount the judge’s ruling; her team said the judge “exhibited bias.” A California appeals court in July 2021 approved her request to disqualify the judge. As a result, Jolie retained full-time custody of their kids, while Pitt maintained only visitation rights. However, Jolie’s lawyer praised the appeals court for disqualifying the judge and giving the “Maleficent” actress full custody.thewestsidegazette.com
