What are Your Favorite Celebrities Doing This Summer?
With summer in full bloom and a heat wave scorching nearly the entire surface of the earth, it’s only natural to yearn for a well-deserved holiday—accompanied with little umbrellas in your cocktails. But before setting up your travel plans, it might be an interesting idea to check what your favorite celebrities are doing over the summer, for a chance to get a glimpse of them.
However, don’t be sad if you’re not traveling to far-flung exotic beaches. Much like ordinary people, not all celebrities are holidaying this summer, and instead, are working to complete exciting projects. So, if you happen to live near a filming destination, you might still be able to take a selfie with popular stars.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s popularity never seems to dwindle, especially when you take into consideration the power couple has earned roughly $147 million dollars. They have just ended the European part of their On the Run II tour, and released the collaborative album Everything Is Love on June 16, which received rave reviews.
Before carrying on with their acclaimed world tours, the couple chartered the Kismet yacht, owned by US billionaire Shahid Khan, to travel with their children. After visiting Cannes and Nice, France, the family is now exploring the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
Guillermo Del Toro
Visionary film director Guillermo Del Toro, best known for Pan’s Labyrinth, which won three Academy Awards in 2006, and The Shape of Water (filmed mostly in Toronto) for which he won Best Director in 2017, is coming back to Toronto this summer to work on his new project — he’s bringing Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to the big screens.
The project is based on the Alvin Schwartz book series of the same name, which depicts a group of teenagers who have to deal with horror stories and sinister deaths in their small town. One can only assume, based on his terrific previous visual work, that this movie will scare even the bravest spectators. So, if you’re planning a trip to Canada this year, you may want to take a detour to the T-Dot to catch Del Toro creating his work of art.
While most people know Gadot for her performance in the record-breaking film Wonder Woman, which earned a staggering $822 million dollars at the box office, she was already a successful celebrity. She was crowned Miss Israel when she was just 18 years old — five years later Gadot landed her first role in The Fast and the Furious film franchise.
Following the worldwide success of the Wonder Woman franchise, which brought life to the DC Universe and featured a female lead, Gadot is now filming the sequence Wonder Woman 1984. The filming is taking place in Alexandria, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Spain, the Canary Islands, and in the UK.
