Hollywood strikes back

Let’s pretend we’re back at movie theaters.

With more payback for ailing jailing Harvey Weinstein, up comes upcoming “She Said.” Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan play reporters who broke the story.

The sun comes out tomorrow for NBC and Taraji P. Henson, who’ll play mean Miss Hannigan in “Annie.” Airs live in December.

Dusting mothballs off Madea — a franchise that’s vacuumed up more than a half-billion dollars at the box office — Tyler Perry’s back in 2022 for “A Madea Homecoming.”

New psychological thriller “The Menu” hots up Anya Taylor-Joy (the chess lady in Netflix hit “The Queen’s Gambit”). Ralph Fiennes plays a chef on a remote island and you don’t have to be a grand master to know he has to make the next move.

“Who Are You, Charlie Brown?” about Charles M. Schulz and the Peanuts characters is a special. Lupita Nyong’o narrates, with Drew Barrymore and Al Roker doing what­everitis.

“Babylon,” new take on 1920s Hollywood — from silent films to talkies — is en route from “La La Land’s” Damien Chazelle. It’s Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.

Queen’s bound

Bets have been placed in Vegas and London on Meghan and Harry’s togetherness. Underlying the odds are that mental health possibly could lead to unpredictability.

Legal experts this side of the ocean who claim to have spoken with Brit counterparts on their side of the ocean say that legislation from year 1717 is known as the Grand Opinion for the Prerogative Concerning the Royal Family. This provides for the monarch’s Right of Supervision.

It doesn’t mean Her Royal Highness will plop the kids on her lap and teach them Britannia really won the War of Independence — but it mandates that the queen is the controlling decision in the raising of her children and grandchildren.

Playing cops & memoirs

Joe Cirillo, a cop, once handled red-carpet security. Knew every celebrity and VIP. Now he’s written the autobio “An Offer I Couldn’t Refuse.”

He was assigned to high crime’s 20th Precinct in the turbulent ’60s and ’70s, when “the NYPD was respected. I cringe reading about hatred for law enforcement and our nation’s police officers. Something must be done to return respect to police officers in New York, the greatest city in the world.”

A P.S. I remember 1964’s riots. Six consecutive nights of vandalism and looting and shooting in Harlem and Bed-Stuy and Brownsville. Thousands of rioters. Some led attacks on the New York Police Department. New Yorkers beaten. Hundreds injured. More hundreds arrested. One dead.

A REASON the infrastructure bill is stalled is because waywayoutof­towners sniff that New York is getting too much money. The fact that our infrastructure links the entire northeast corridor, which supports half the country’s economy, they forget.

But they’d remember to approve funds for the Tallahatchie Bridge on Choctaw Ridge in Mississippi.

Only outside New York, kids, only outside New York.
