Go ahead and shake yourself a thimble-sized martini, because a bite-sized glimpse of the next James Bond movie has finally arrived. The two-minute trailer for No Time to Die, which arrives in April, sees Daniel Craig wearing suits and driving cool cars and squaring off against a team of villains that includes Bohemian Rhapsody's Rami Malek, wearing a full mask — because if you cast a handsome Oscar winner in your movie, you definitely want to cover that face right up.

What's funnier than being terrified you're about to be sued into oblivion? That's the gag recently pulled by actress and comedian Amy Schumer, who was so exhausted after a session with personal trainer AJ Fisher that she threatened to have her lawyer send a cease-and-desist letter — and then actually followed through on the threat. "I opened the letter and I actually got goosebumps. I had a moment of, 'Was she serious? Is my career totally over?'" recalls Fisher. Of course, it was all a prank — but just to be safe, Fisher might want to pull burpees out of the rotation for a while. [E! Online]

When Chris Pratt took to Instagram to post a photo of himself looking seriously shredded at the gym, he probably expected the usual smattering of bland praise and heart-eye emojis — and mostly, that's what he got. But one hero stood up against the tide: Jason Momoa, who called out Pratt for using a single-use water bottle instead of a reusable one. Momoa has since apologized for putting Pratt on blast, but come on — what else would you expect from Aquaman? [ET Online]

After starring in The Lone Ranger and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which glamorous adventure could possibly await Armie Hammer next? A new episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls provided the answer: Climbing some rocks and sucking milk out of a goat teat. As a guest on the reality series, Hammer celebrated a successful hike by wrangling a nearby wild goat and slurping milk directly from the teat. "I just squirted the freshest milk I've ever had in my life in my mouth. I'm actually surprised and happy to say it was delicious," said Hammer. With a ringing celebrity endorsement like that, you'd better book your trip to the mountain now before it gets totally overrun by tourists. [Entertainment Weekly]

Everyone who works with modern-day raconteur Nicolas Cage walks away with a wild story to tell — but it's going to be tough to top the story just revealed by Jay Baruchel. Baruchel, who starred opposite Cage in a movie you don't remember called The Sorcerer's Apprentice, describes Cage coming to set one day and describing a weird dream he had about a man with "a human body and a shrimp head," who pointed at Cage and screamed a few expletives. Cage surely felt better after venting about his bizarre nightmare to a costar — but if you ask us, it sounds a little shellfish. [The Loop]
