While Netflix’s The Witcher stuck the landing on a number of things with its second season, the Wild Hunt didn’t live up to expectations due to their limited screentime.

Of course, to call what was essentially an extravagant cameo “limited screentime” would be an understatement. The Wraiths of Mörhogg only appear for a brief moment in the last act of the final episode. In fact, one could go so far as to suggest that the appearance served more as a teaser for a story that’s yet to unravel rather than a proper introduction to one of the most menacing adversaries that Geralt and Ciri face in their journey.

Executive producer Lauren S. Hissrich has promised that the next season will remedy this particular issue, but that’s still a long way away, and we haven’t even had a proper look at Eredin’s riders. Squint your eyes however much you may, because it’s still really difficult to make out any important details about the wraiths.

Luckily, the official Twitter account for Netflix’s The Witcher has decided to give us a proper look at the design for the Wild Hunt by sharing a ton of concept arts. As you can see for yourself below, every rider has a distinct and bone-chilling look.

Not to spell out the obvious here, but if you think you’ve already seen these sketches, it’s because the design for the live-action Wild Hunt eerily resembles CD Projekt Red’s work on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, though I think it’s safe to say that the similarity has been an intentional attempt on Netflix’s part.

Could the Marvel Cinematic Universe use an X-23 reboot with Dafne Keen?

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the 2017 film Logan.

With many comic book movie fans getting hyped at the possibility of Wolverine coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe sometime in the near future — with Disney acquiring the rights to the character when it bought out 20th Century Fox — some are wondering if it might be best to continue the story of a new character that was set up to carry the torch after the departure of Hugh Jackman’s Logan.

In the excellent 2017 send off to Jackman’s adamantium-clawed hero, Logan, we’re introduced to a new hero seemingly poised to take his place within the X-Men cinematic universe, Dafne Keene’s Laura, AKA X-23.

Warning: Spoilers for Logan to follow.

In case you haven’t already seen it, Logan takes place in the future, where mutants are mysteriously no longer being born. The plot of the film centers around our titular hero transporting a young girl named Laura to a storied refuge, Eden, where the first mutants to exist in 25 years are rumored to be hiding out. By the end of the film, Logan sacrifices himself at the hands of Boyd Holbrook’s Pierce, while his evil band of Reavers attempt to kill off Laura and the other remaining mutants, to cover up the misdeeds of the biotechnology corporation Alkali-Transigen.

Laura has powers very similar to Logan’s, including sporting adamantium claws of her own and having rapid healing abilities. It’s also revealed Laura is Logan’s biological daughter, due to being a genetically engineered creation using Logan’s DNA in a lab for the purposes of being used as a weapon.

So, the question arose from Reddit user u/Tornado31619 on the r/MarvelStudios subreddit whether people would be interested in having that same X-23 actress, Dafne Keen, return as a rebooted version of her character from Logan.

However long it takes for the MCU to introduce its own version of Logan, would people be interested in Dafne Keen returning as a rebooted X-23? from marvelstudios

Many fans agreed that it would be cool to see X-23’s continued development in the MCU.

Comment from discussion SteelSlayerMatt’s comment from discussion "However long it takes for the MCU to introduce its own version of Logan, would people be interested in Dafne Keen returning as a rebooted X-23?".

A fan pointed out how the “constant recasting of Peter Parker” in the Spider-Man movies was one reason he started tuning them out, believing that bringing Keen’s X-23 back would definitely side-step the reboot fatigue issue so many superhero movies have.

Comment from discussion ozmega’s comment from discussion "However long it takes for the MCU to introduce its own version of Logan, would people be interested in Dafne Keen returning as a rebooted X-23?".

Another user remarked how awesome it would be to see X-23 engage in the kind of hand-to-hand martial arts that made Shang-Chi such a hit with fans. Wouldn’t it be awesome to see Laura show up as a contender at the Golden Daggers Club underground tournament — where we saw Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi duke it out with his sister, Meng’er Zhang’s Xu Xialing — in a sequel?

Comment from discussion khamesa’s comment from discussion "However long it takes for the MCU to introduce its own version of Logan, would people be interested in Dafne Keen returning as a rebooted X-23?".

In the comics, Laura is an older adult. One fan observed that since Keen has aged quite a bit since Logan, she may be a good fit for the role, in terms of her character lining up with the source material.

Comment from discussion kht777’s comment from discussion "However long it takes for the MCU to introduce its own version of Logan, would people be interested in Dafne Keen returning as a rebooted X-23?".

Not everyone agreed the MCU ought to bring back the legacy mutant actors, with one user saying they hope new iterations of the characters can be created instead.

Comment from discussion ifockpotatoes’s comment from discussion "However long it takes for the MCU to introduce its own version of Logan, would people be interested in Dafne Keen returning as a rebooted X-23?".

The idea of Keen returning as X-23 certainly gives Marvel fans a lot to think about. With the recent re-introduction of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin in Hawkeye, it seems entirely possible for Disney to cherry-pick other previously established properties in their original form.

As filming presses ahead in Glasgow, Scotland, DC’s Batgirl movie has just added three more to its cast. The first of the superhero universe’s HBO Max-exclusive films to go before cameras, Batgirl stars In the Heights breakout Leslie Grace as the eponymous heroine, also known as the commissioner’s daughter Barbara Gordon. This will mark the comics character’s first live-action outing since 1997’s Batman & Robin.

Grace is joined by a terrific supporting cast, including Justice League‘s J.K. Simmons as her on-screen father Jim Gordon and Doom Patrol‘s Brendan Fraser as Garfield Lyons, aka Firefly, the villain of the piece. What’s more, Michael Keaton is following up his grand return in The Flash to reprise his version of Bruce Wayne once more. Jacob Scipio will also play an undisclosed role.

What’s more, The Hollywood Reporter has now shared that three more stars are now part of the the ensemble. Namely Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson, and Ethan Kai. Front recently appeared opposite Ryan Reynolds in The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, while Johnson is set to feature in Sony’s long-delayed Morbius. Funnily enough, he also shared the screen with Fraser in The Mummy. Kai is most known for recurring roles in such TV series as Killing Eve and London Kills. No details on these actors’ roles have yet been revealed.

Likewise, not much is known about the film’s plot at this point, apart from that Barbara will be depicted as a GCPD officer and will be coming up against Fraser’s “sociopathic pyromaniac.” Recent set photos have revealed, though, that Batgirl will be stuffed full of enough easter eggs and references to keep DC fans pleased.

From Bad Boys For Life directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah and Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson, Batgirl might still be shooting, but it’s pegged to end up on the Warner Bros. streaming service sometime later this very year.

Horror fans and Ghostface enthusiasts can happily rejoice as Scream officially hits theaters this weekend. Early reviews remain positive as the fifth installment in the iconic slasher franchise continues to flourish, with many fans headed to theaters for its much-anticipated opening weekend.

Speaking of theaters, as it stands, many fans are questioning whether the latest installment will be available to watch on any of the multiple streaming platforms to choose from. However, unlike the modern horror film sequel Halloween Kills (2021) receiving a theatrical release while simultaneously streaming on Peacock, Scream will only be available to watch in theaters during the first few weeks after its official release.

However, diehard fans of the horror franchise should cease to lose hope, as the movie will be available to stream on Paramount Plus 45 days after its theatrical release. Many of Paramount’s prior films have followed the same pattern, and seeing as Paramount Pictures is releasing Scream in theaters, it’s only a matter of time until the anticipated horror extravaganza becomes available on their streaming platform.

The latest chapter in the iconic franchise features a string of familiar faces, including Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott), Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers), and David Arquette (Dewey Riley.) The film will also welcome several favorable newcomers to the franchise, including Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Dylan Minnette, and Jack Quaid. Similar to its predecessors, Scream will revolve around the newest perpetrator adopting the Ghostface persona.

While you wait, you can watch the original Scream film right now on Peacock.

Scream hits theaters on Friday, January 14.

If TikTok has taught us anything about who’s going to be next to ride the platform’s algorithm to media stardom, it’s to expect the unexpected. You never know who’s just one funny sketch or choreographed dance routine away from millions of views. One of the video-sharing service’s newest stars comes from an unlikely place to find social media’s hot new influencer: a US Army base.

@thekeeblerelf

Haha helmet make head go bonk #miltok #usarmy

♬ Mission Impossible Theme (Movie Trailer Mix) – Dominik Hauser

User “thekeeblerelf” has gained a few million followers who’ve joined in to see her frequent videos spotlighting her life as a military police officer. Keebler – also known by the handle Kayc – first began posting videos in October of last year, but it was her videos of day-to-day military life that earned her so many followers.

@thekeeblerelf

How u gonna watch this video and not fall in love with me #miltok #army #militarypolice #usarmy

♬ Careless Whisper – George Michael

Keebler’s popularity is no doubt boosted by her appearance. She does indeed possess somewhat elfin features, punctuated by a pixie-ish haircut. She’s a far cry from the stereotypical hypermasculine image that comes to most people’s minds when they think of soldiers or military police officers. But her videos show she’s more than capable of handling her job.

@thekeeblerelf

Fun times 👀 #miltok #army #usarmy

♬ Oh No – Kreepa

There’s no telling what, if anything, Keebler will parlay her newfound fame into or even if she’ll continue to post anything past her time in the Army. But it’s a safe assumption that she’ll be keeping her followers, many of which are likely to be her fellow servicemembers, for at least as long as she has the time.

What happened to Wendy Williams?

itemprop=”headline name”>What happened to Wendy Williams?

Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images for Vulture Festival.

Dating as far back as the Victorian era (and perhaps even earlier), it’s been something of a tradition for women to gather around for tea and share their opinions about the local goings-on. These happenings have historically spanned everything from news of intimate affairs to illegitimate children to socialites losing their fortunes. This discussion of personal affairs was eventually called “gossip,” something Lady Whistledown and the cast of Netflix’s Bridgerton can certainly relate to.

Over time, the rumor mill has turned into an entire commercial industry that eventually encompassed talk shows like Sally Jesse Raphael and Ricki Lake. The format for these talk shows has changed dramatically, introducing everything from roundtable formats like The View to more formal presentations like Oprah or Ellen. Of all the talk show personalities, only one is truly synonymous with the term “spilling the tea,” and that is none other than Wendy Williams.

Since 2008, Williams has been expressing her opinions and discussing celebrity gossip in front of millions of Americans as the host of The Wendy Williams Show. Though her opinions and revelations have often been regarded as wildly inaccurate and a ploy to gain more notoriety, Williams has never shied away from expressing herself. When times have become difficult, she’s grown even more defiant, using her show as an outlet to address those issues head-on. For 12 seasons, Williams continued to prove to her haters that she was not one to back down from scrutiny and backlash. Her approach gained her more ratings and followers, proving that she was here to stay.

Last year, the show was ready to kick off its 13th season on Sept. 20 when Williams’ team announced that it would be pushed back to Oct. 4. When Williams tested positive for COVID-19, the premiere was pushed back yet again to Oct. 18. Willams’ team then announced that the 57-year-old talk show host wouldn’t be returning to her chair in the foreseeable future. To be clear, The Wendy Williams show has not been cancelled. Instead, it has opted to go on without its beloved host, relying on a lineup of guest hosts to fill in the gaps much like The Ellen DeGeneres show, which experienced something similar at the beginning of its last season. What’s going on with Wendy Williams?

Who is Wendy Williams?

Wendy Williams was born on July 18, 1964 in Asbury, New Jersey. She began her career as a disc jockey for the college radio station WRBB, where LL Cool J became her first celebrity interviewee. From there, she continued to work in radio and worked her way up D.C. and New York-based stations, picking up a Billboard Radio Award along the way and even earning the honor of R&B Major Market Radio Air Personality of the Year.

During that time, Williams became popular for giving listeners candid advice and sharing the details of her own life dramas through her fiery and often unapologetic personality. In the ’90s, she became well-known for outing rappers and pop stars as well as making allegations that artists like Sean Combs and Whitney Houston were gay. Needless to say, her comments eventually put her in a lot of hot water with both radio stations and the celebrities she gossiped about.

As a result of her comments, Williams ended up bouncing around from station to station, ultimately getting in the crosshairs of more than few celerities who allegedly decided to take matters into their own hands. According to Vox, Whitney Houston’s friend Robyn Crawford admitted that the pair had planned to confront Williams over her allegations about Houston. Williams has also implied that Sean Combs once sent a girl group from his record label to assault her before getting her fired from Hot 97. Even the legendary rapper Tupac dissed her in a song after she made allegations about his time in prison.

The Wendy Williams Show 

Despite all of the issues, Williams still managed to find work, eventually realizing that her brash personality had actually gained her more listeners. Television executives searching for the next big daytime star had also noticed Williams’ growing demographic and offered her an opportunity to do a trial run of her own syndicated talk show. When the show premiered, it became an astounding success, resonating with a vast audience consisting primarily of women between the ages of 18 and 54. Seeing their chance to reach such a wide demographic, Fox and BET wasted no time broadcasting The Wendy Williams Show. For the next 14 years, Williams reigned supreme as one of the most successful daytime talk show hosts of the era.

Since then, The Wendy Williams Show has remained notorious for its unscripted gossip and candid delivery. Whereas hosts like Ellen DeGeneres sit down and talk to celebrities in a friendly albeit comedic manner, Williams approaches them from a more direct and often speculative standpoint, acting like one of the girls around the tea table instead of a polite host. She had no problem prying into her guests’ personal lives and is often brutal when discussing their business in public. Williams’ spats with celebrities have been well-documented over the years. In 2006, while she was still on the radio, Williams leaked that Method Man’s wife had cancer before some of the couple’s own family members even knew. She once claimed that gay men “should leave skirts and heels to women” and even downplayed actor Terry Crews when he spoke out about being sexually assaulted, saying that he was “not brave.”

That crass format has not changed over time. In 2021, Williams implied that the marriage of actress and vegan influencer Tabitha Brown was doomed to fail. She even misgendered a trans athlete and has made several ill-informed transphobic jokes that didn’t sit right with the trans community. More recently, Williams did the unthinkable when she attempted to address the murder of 19-year-old TikToker Matima Miller, better known to TikTok fans as Swavy. Williams delivered the news of the TikToker’s murder by comparing his follower count to her own and proclaiming that she had “no idea who this person is and neither does one person in this building.”

The comments were seen as unnecessary and uncalled for, considering that Miller and his family were not famous like Williams’ usual celebrity targets. Nevertheless, fans and television execs have not been dissuaded by Williams’ controversial approach and have continued to support her, even when they don’t agree with everything she has to say. However, it seems that Williams is finally about to bow out from her show, which some fans have speculated is due to her most recent controversies. If the rumors are true, then television execs have finally reached the end of their rope with Williams and are ready to move on from the drama that constantly surrounds her. But gossip aside, what’s the real reason behind Williams finally leaving daytime TV?

Wendy Williams’ health and personal issues

Three years ago, Williams announced that she’d been diagnosed with Graves disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes an overactive thyroid and that caused her to take extended breaks from her show in 2018, 2019, and 2020. Williams also has lymphedema, a swelling caused by the buildup of lymph fluid that can present itself as swollen legs and ankles. Together, these health conditions made it difficult for Williams to remain in top form while appearing on her own show. 

The problems first began for Williams when she fainted in the middle of her show in October of 2017. After that, it seems that her health has declined to the point where she was recently seen in a wheelchair. Although Williams has not addressed the wheelchair use herself, The Rickey Smiley Morning Show‘s Antoine Edwards has alleged that the reasoning is due to her blood circulation, stating that the “57-year-old talk show host had completely lost all blood circulation in her legs and feet.”

As for The Wendy Williams Show, inside sources have implied that Williams may never return and that a new host will be announced at some point in 2022. With a plethora of guest hosts including Leah Remini, Whitney Cummings, Jerry Springer, and Bill Bellamy to choose from, it seems that the show may end up getting quite a makeover. In the meantime, we wish Wendy Williams a speedy recovery.

Magnolia Network couple deny claims they ‘scammed’ customers after Chip and Joanna Gaines pull their show

Home renovators Andy and Candis Meredith are denying allegations they “scammed” former customers after their reality TV show Home Work was pulled from last Friday the Magnolia Network.

The show was canceled just two days after it premiered following allegations from several former clients who complained about the quality and pricing of the Utah-based couple’s work, People reported.

The pair took to Instagram Wednesday to make a series of posts giving their response, stating they “adamantly deny that we have ‘scammed,’ stolen, or lied to any of these clients.

Candis said she didn’t want to “take away” from the feelings that former clients expressed, but she decided to speak up after her children became the subject of disparaging comments.

Acknowledging how hard renovations are, especially for television, Candis did admit that the “timelines that were set were too crazy, and I am an optimistic person,” she said in a 25-minute video. “I know better now that I should never have said these short timelines and set these expectations. That is on me, and I take full responsibility.”

A post shared by Andy and Candis Meredith (@andyandcandis)

Candis also denied that the homeowners who complained contacted her after they finished the projects.

“We have paid our own personal funds on every client project for our show and did not charge anything for the hundreds of hours we put into the projects,” the caption of the Instagram post stated as a summary of the video. “Going on a Carnival Cruise once a year with our kids or a work trip for our content does not make us criminals.”

Multiple families have accused the TV show stars of shoddy work and overblown budgets, according to KSL.

In one case, Aubry Bennion complained that an original renovation estimate had a timeline of about three weeks and a budget of about $25,000. Instead, the work ended up taking months to complete and cost $40,000 on her kitchen, she said. In addition, she said the work they did to her deck caused problems to the yard drainage and sprinkler systems, which required an additional $18,000 for another contractor to re-repair. The investigation by KSL also confirmed a flooring contractor was left unpaid by the Merediths, a bill for which Bennion had to pick up the tab.

Bennion also told NBC News she was partly inspired to audition for Home Work due to being a longtime fan of Chip and Joanna Gaines, the couple who founded Magnolia Network and who grew to fame themselves via a home renovation show, Fixer Upper, on HGTV before moving to Magnolia Network.

Two other couples who said they were former customers of the Merediths cited similarly incomplete, over-budget, and exorbitant timeline jobs in the KSL exposé

The KSL report also stated that there are multiple court filings against the Merediths and their company, Home Love Network, including one in which Candis entered a judgment by confession in March of last year for owing $39,161.22 to Vienna and Robert Goates. In addition, another small claims action was filed by the company Simmons Floor for $10,500.

Disney’s ‘Snow White’ remake casts male lead as brand-new character

Remix by Keane Eacobellis

Disney has got some flak for its live-action remakes, simply reheating the stories of the original animated classics for a different medium, but it looks like the upcoming Snow White reboot will be taking a different tack. We already knew the movie was diversifying its cast somewhat by casting West Side Story‘s Rachel Zegler in the title role and Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen. Now we know that its male lead will be an entirely new character.

As confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, Andrew Burnap has been hired to star opposite Zegler in Snow White. Burnap won the Tony Award for his performance in The Inheritance last year, beating Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Hiddleston. Now he will be playing a unique character in the Marc Webb-directed production and will not be portraying either the huntsman or the prince from the 1938 film who act as Snow’s rescuers.

Disney

Specific details on Burnap’s role are under wraps, but THR can confirm that it will likely involve some singing. This is hardly a surprise given the actor’s skill set and that Snow White will be a musical, just like its source material. La La Land and The Greatest Showman songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are on board to compose some new numbers.

With Snow White’s prince hardly having any screentime in the animated classic, it’s no surprise that Disney has had to bolster the part of the male lead for the remake. Still, it sounds like the new Snow White will be doing away with the prince altogether, which would be a major shift to the House of Mouse’s traditional status quo. But it should bolster the princess’ independence in the process. Zegler has previously promised her Snow White will be “stronger” than the ’38 version.

Snow White is set to start filming in the UK this March.

Just hours after Kanye West and his new arm candy Julia Fox partied it up with Madonna, Antonio Brown, and Floyd Mayweather, the rapper who now goes by Ye was reportedly involved in a physical altercation with a fan who’d allegedly asked for an autograph.

The news was first reported by Fox 11 News in Los Angeles and was later confirmed to Page Six through an LAPD spokeswoman. According to the outlets, the incident occurred around 3am outside of the Soho Warehouse located in Downtown Los Angeles. Though the private club had shut down an hour earlier, members had been lingering on their way out, and Ye was sitting in his parked SUV when the fan approached.

The situation apparently quickly escalated when West “jumped out of his car” and called the fan “some words not suitable for television,” according to Fox 11. The fan then alleges that Ye punched him, causing him to fall to the ground. Police were called to the scene, but West had already left by the time they arrived. However, since the case is being investigated as misdemeanor battery, it seems unlikely that he would have been arrested regardless. A police report has since been filed, and the charges carry a maximum jail sentence of six months.

TMZ obtained grainy footage of the incident, in you can hear an “irate” West yelling: “Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not? ‘Cause, that’s what happened right fucking now.”

Fox is not believed to have been with Ye at the time of the incident. TMZ also reports that she stayed at Delilah’s in West Hollywood, where the couple had been earlier that evening and left alone while Fox remained at the club.

DCEU fans can’t believe ‘Peacemaker’ just made this bonkers Batman character canon

This article contains very minor spoilers for Peacemaker episode two.

Peacemaker premiered on HBO Max this Thursday, and DC fans eager for more R-Rated wildness after The Suicide Squad will not be disappointed. Writer/director James Gunn has followed up his 2021 summer blockbuster with something just as bonkers and unhinged. Case in point, one throwaway exchange makes a looney Batman character from the Silver Age part of the DCEU canon. And fans cannot believe it.

The first two episodes of Peacemaker see John Cena’s Christopher Smith continually mocking Steve Agee’s John Economos. So when Economos has to stitch Smith up after a fight in episode two, he’s less than enthused. The tech guy starts listing off people he would rather spend time with than Peacemaker. “I’d rather be with f—–‘ Bat-Mite than you,” Economos snaps, causing every DC fan watching to go back ten seconds.

Yup, it’s official. Bat-Mite is part of the DCEU! For those unaware, Economos provides a hilarious summary of the character, explaining to a confused Smith that he’s “a two-foot-tall interdimensional imp who stans Batman.” Though he was originally a comic relief character from the 1950s/60s, Bat-Mite has made occasional appearances in the comics and other media in the decades since. But a nod to him in this franchise was unexpected.

I appreciate the references to the wider DCEU in #Peacemaker, it's nice to have some greater connections.

And yeah, Bat-Mite actually exists, so I'm happy for that.#PeacemakerSweep

— Andrei Bondoc (#Peacemaker era) (@AndreiBondoc05) January 13, 2022

Bat-Mite has canonically hung around with Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne. Let that sink in.

Sooo Bat-Mite is canon in the #DCEU.

Wtf #Peacemaker pic.twitter.com/n9v2snDf7C

It’s kind of crazy that Bat-Mite was part of the DCEU before, say, Dick Grayson.

DCEU Bat-Mite confirmed, holy fucking shit.

Of all characters to get a name drop in #Peacemaker, he would have been last on my list of guesses lmaoooooo

— Braden #MakeTASM3 (@_becker15_) January 13, 2022

OK, but now that Gunn has namedropped him, he can’t leave it there, right? So let’s start the campaign to get Bat-Mite in season two!

Holy fucking shit you can’t just name drop Bat-Mite and then move on! #Peacemaker pic.twitter.com/kmsa740tGH

— Kaine Aka Viking (@VIKING_WIZARD_) January 13, 2022

Maybe with Gunn was in charge of the franchise, we might get a Bat-Mite movie?

@JamesGunn should be put in charge of the entire DC universe. #Peacemaker is excellent and they made Bat-Mite cannon!!!

— Robby Rosenfeld (@Robbygew) January 13, 2022

One fan has taken credit for Peacemaker‘s Bat-Mite reference as they got Gunn talking about the imp on Twitter back in Feb. 2020, around the time he would’ve been writing the scripts.

Imma take credit for James Gunn making a Bat-Mite reference on #Peacemaker because of a tweet I made. https://t.co/Vh1AVPExYH

Masaaki Yuasa, the legendary anime director behind everything from The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl and Ride Your Wave to Devilman Crybaby and Japan Sinks: 2020, will soon release his final film. Inu-Oh is a fantastical musical and period drama about the friendship between a disfigured dancer and a blind biwa player in 14th century Japan. You can watch the new teaser trailer above.

Yuasa is directing the feature film as Science SARU, the studio he co-founded with producer Eunyoung Choi in 2013. In 2021, A Silent Voice director Naoko Yamada joined the studio to produce The Heike Story, an adaptation of Japanese novelist Hideo Furukawa’s 2016 reimagining of the historical epic The Tale of the Heike. The Heike Story also features a blind biwa player, so it will be interesting to see what explicit connections are made to the series.

Furukawa later published Tales of the Heike: INU-OH in 2020 as an original story set a century after the events depicted in the first book and in Yamada’s The Heike Story, forming the basis for Yuasa’s Inu-Oh. At its Anime NYC panel, the North American distributor of Inu-Oh, GKIDS, described the film as a “rock opera” and a “closing argument” from Yuasa on the medium of animation. 

Among the talented crew behind the production is the award-winning mangaka of Ping Pong and Blue Spring, Taiyō Matsumoto. You can see his concept character designs for the main duo, Inu-Oh and Timona, below.

Inu-oh premiered at the Venice International Film Festival last year to critical acclaim and will be released in Japanese theaters this summer. There is currently no set North American release date, though we can expect to see Inu-Oh sometime this year.

itemprop=”headline name”>Kristen Stewart’s SAG snub has critics and fans shaking their heads

Beau Paul

Jan 13, 2022 10:58 am

Kristen Stewart’s glaring omission from this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards has critics and fans alike stunned and in disbelief. The actor’s performance in the Princess Diana biopic Spencer was almost universally lauded, and most considered her a shoo-in for not just a SAG nom, but for the full battery of yearly “Best Leading Actress” awards.

Stewart has been overdue a nomination, having handily overcome her post-Twilight stereotyping and emerging as a solid and reliable leading lady. She’s been especially effective in artier indie fare like Spencer, Personal Shopper, and Clouds of Sils Maria. So after a career arc that is practically bait for an award nom, what happened? Not enough viewers? Voters hedging their bets? Whatever the reason, people aren’t holding back their opinions on social media.

Film critic Cédric Succivalli categorized the snub as “baffling and upsetting”.

SAG-AFTRA snubbing Kristen Stewart is not only the biggest Best Actress snub in the whole SAG history, it's also the most baffling and upsetting one, seriously. These nominations couldn't be more basic.#SAGAwards

— Cédric Succivalli (@OnTheLido) January 12, 2022

Philadelphia Magazine editor Ernest Owens pointed out that critics across the nation have singled out Stewart’s performance as award-worthy.

Stewart still has a good chance of picking up some more gold as Awards season rolls on towards the Oscars. There are still several prestigious awards ceremonies left. And of course, fans are definitely hoping that they’ll hear Stewart’s name on February 8 when the Acadamy announces this year’s Oscar nominees.

What happened to Sean Kingston?

itemprop=”headline name”>What happened to Sean Kingston?

Nathan Donkor

Jan 13, 2022 10:47 am2022-01-13T10:47:43-05:00

Does anyone remember Sean Kingston? If you’re a member of Gen Z or even a millennial, then the name might ring a bell. A few years before the start of the last decade, Kingston was a budding R&B artist who was taking the world by storm with his single “Beautiful Girls,” introducing a new reggae-inspired R&B sound that has been emulated by numerous artists over the decades. The song peaked at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and earned Kingston several slots as the opening acts for various artists including Gwen Stefani, Beyoncé, and Kelly Clarkson.

It seemed that the Jamaican singer was well on his way to becoming the next face of R&B and reggae as his name began to grow in the industry ⏤ at least until that name became notorious among celebrity circles for less than stellar reasons before the singer seemed to disappear from the spotlight entirely. So what happened? And what has Kingston been doing this whole time?

Who is Sean Kingston?

Born Kisean Paul Anderson in Miami, Florida on Feb. 3, 1990, Sean Kingston and his family moved to Kingston, Jamaica when he was six. It was there that he attended school for three years before migrating back to the United States. Even back then, Kingston’s musical destiny was carved into his family tree, as his grandfather was the noted Jamaican reggae producer Lawrence Lindo.

Around 2007, Kingston was discovered on YouTube and signed a partnership deal with Sony. At the time, he had actually started his career in the industry as a rapper before label heads and producers decided to help him develop a more melodic sound. The end result was Kingston’s first single, “Beautiful Girls,” which appeared on his first studio album, Sean Kingston. From there, the song became an international success and topped the charts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Soon, Kingston was touring and featuring on other artists’ projects as he geared up to release his next studio album.

It was another two years before Kingston released his second studio album, Tomorrow, in 2009. The album featured a star-studded roster of artists including T-Pain, Nicki Minaj, Soulja Boy, Dr. Dre, and Akon. The first single from the album, “Eenie Meenie,” featured Justin Bieber and was even featured on Bieber’s My World 2.0 album. The two artists had even planned to release a mixtape together called Our World, which featured 12 to 14 new songs. However, the album was never released and instead Kingston went on to perform on the first leg of Bieber’s tour before returning to the studio to work on another album.

The rapid decline of Sean Kingston’s career

Kingston then followed up with the singles “Fire Burning,” which was a huge summer hit, and “Face Drop,” trying to capitalize on his momentum. Unfortunately, the album only peaked at #37 on the US Billboard 200  and sold a meager 13,000 copies in its first week of release. It soon dropped further past the top 40 until it fell 50 spots to #87.

Despite the album sales, Kingston was able to remain a respected artist amongst his peers, which led to dozens of collaborative projects that were often released as singles. He was featured on former rapper Bow Wow’s single “For My Hood,” co-wrote Jason Derulo’s “Whatchu Say,” and even partnered with Italian singer Giusy Ferreri on the vocal part of the single “Amore e capoeira.”

Though Kingston did not continue to reach the same success he did with his first album, it did not derail him from releasing more projects. He returned in 2011 with his third project, King of Kingz, which featured appearances by Akon, Flo Rida, Soulja Boy, Justin Bieber, B.O.B, and Tory Lanez. Unfortunately, the album did not make any waves in the water despite its star-studded roster.

Then the tide went from bad to worse. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kingston was in a jet ski accident in 2011 while enjoying the waters of Miami on vacation. Kingston reportedly slammed into a bridge, catapulting himself and a female passenger into the water, and was knocked unconscious. Kingston was then taken to the hospital in critical condition, where 11 days later he had to have emergency open-heart surgery for a torn aorta.

It was another four years before Kingston hinted at a new project when he released “Wait Up” as the lead single off of his upcoming fourth studio album. Between then and now, Kingston has periodically released singles like “One Away” and “All I Got” to keep his fans interested while they wait for his fourth project. Unfortunately, neither single made any significant progress on the charts. 

In recent years, Kingston has continued to hint at the possible release of his fourth album, Deliverance, as he has once again returned to releasing random singles that are said to be on the album’s track list. In 2019, he released “Peace of Mind” featuring Tory Lanez and in May of last year, followed it up with “Darkest Times” featuring rapper G Herbo. 

It is now 2022 and Kingston still has yet to “deliver” on the new Deliverance album. Many fans and even other artists have wondered what Kingston has been doing about the album. But what has Kingston been doing lately that’s keeping him from releasing Deliverance?

What happened to Sean Kingston?

According to Urban Islandz, on Nov. 5, 2021, Kingston allegedly punched a video director and pulled a gun on him inside Kingston’s home in Los Angeles. Apparently, the video director, who goes by the Instagram handle GXDLIKE, had been staying in Kingston’s home for three months to film video footage. He claims that on Nov. 5 of last year, Kingston asked him to shoot some footage in the home around 2am. However, the director said that his phone was dead at the time, leading the singer to become enraged and punch him in the face. Afterward, Kingston allegedly pulled his firearm on him while demanding that he collect his things and leave the house.

A statement sent out to reporters from Kingston’s team denied the singer’s involvement. 

“Any allegations regarding my client, Sean Kingston, made over the past few days are false,” the statement read. “It is unfortunate that Sean’s former videographer upon being terminated has chosen to seek his 5 minutes of fame. All claims will be disproven.”

Since then, Kingston has kept a relatively low profile, as the incident is still being investigated. As far as anyone knows, he is still in the studio working on Deliverance, but with everything that he currently has going on now, the momentum leading up to a release date may end up slowing down quite a bit.

New ‘Uncharted’ poster teases Tom Holland’s next blockbuster

itemprop=”headline name”>New ‘Uncharted’ poster teases Tom Holland’s next blockbuster

If you can believe it, Sony’s Uncharted movie is finally about to hit theaters next month. This adaptation of the video game franchise has been in the works since the late 2000s, with Tom Holland attached in the lead since 2017. Even when filming did begin in 2020, it was held up by the pandemic, with the studio delaying its release numerous times. But with just a few weeks to go until its current due date, it looks like we can really say Uncharted is almost here.

Especially as Sony is pressing ahead with one last push of the marketing machine. This Thursday morning, the studio shared a new poster for the movie, highlighting its stellar cast. Holland takes up the lion’s share of poster space as Nathan Drake, with the Spider-Man actor playing a younger version of the adventurer than gamers are familiar with. Likewise, Mark Wahlberg is his mentor Sully, with Antonio Banderas as the film’s villain. Sophia Ali and Tati Gabrielle round out the leads.

“Places undiscovered. Fortune untold,” reads Sony’s caption for the poster, which you can check out below. “The race for $5 billion unfolds in [Uncharted], exclusively in movie theaters February 18.”

— Sony Pictures (@SonyPictures) January 13, 2022

Much of the reason why Uncharted languished in development hell for the longest time was due to the grueling hunt for the right director, with the likes of Dan Trachtenberg, Shawn Levy, and Travis Knight among those who were briefly attached. In the end, the job went to Zombieland and Venom filmmaker Ruben Fleischer. Fleischer’s movies tend to go either way when it comes to their critical and commercial success, so we’ll have to see whether the long wait for Uncharted will prove to be worth it or not.

Like the poster says, Uncharted makes its way into U.S. theaters on Feb. 18, after opening in the UK a week earlier on Feb. 11.

Where are the Olsen twins now?

When they were child stars on Full House, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were the twinkle in Hollywood’s eye. At just six months old, they shared the role of Michelle Tanner on the ABC sitcom and stole the hearts of audiences all around the globe, soaring into stardom forever. But after the show ended in 1995, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen silently retired from the entertainment world and went off to college.

Since then they’ve developed a pretty low-key reputation and have actively maintained a no-social-media status for years. But due to the recent passing of their beloved Full House on-screen father, Bob Saget, fans of the show are wondering: what have the Olsen twins been up to?

Ever the businesswomen at heart
Frazer Harrison/Getty Images.

When Full House neared its end in 1993, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen created an entertainment company called Dualstar, where all of their direct-to DVD films were produced, including Our Lips Are Sealed, Passport To Paris, and How the West Was Fun. In one interview, the twins said that even during their time in front of the camera, they spent equally the same amount of time behind the camera building a brand for themselves, so in a way, they always felt like businesswomen.

Which explains why in 2006, the two sisters shed their on-screen personas and went on to create the now-successful luxury fashion line The Row, whose mission is to inspire women and challenge fashion norms. The twins initially wanted their famous last names to be hidden from the brand and even chose not to give an interview for almost three years after the brand’s birth because, as they say, they wanted the clothes to speak for themselves. Now, 15 years later, we think they succeeded.

Sayonara Hollywood forever?

One of their biggest reasons for leaving Hollywood was because, in contrast to other industries where you have creative control and can make your own decisions about work, in entertainment, it’s all set up by other people and out of your hands. So while acting might be off-limits forever, that doesn’t mean we won’t see the Olsens return for some behind-the-camera roles.

This is most likely why we never saw them return for the reboot of Fuller House, unlike almost every other cast member, including Bob Saget. That didn’t stop the twins from offering their deepest condolences to the Saget family for the sudden and incredibly saddening loss of their former on-screen father. While speaking to People, they said:

“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has,” said Mary-Kate and Ashley. “We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences.”

What are they up to now?
Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images.

Three decades since their days in Full House, the actresses-turned-adult-designers still live incredibly private lives. Both Mary-Kate and Ashley have zero social media presence and are often only spotted from time to time at red carpet events and the annual Met Gala, which sees some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment come together for a red carpet extravaganza. 

Mary-Kate married Olivier Sarkozy in 2015 but the two filed for divorce in May 2020, right at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ashley is still dating 33-year-old artist Louis Eisner and seems to be going strong.

Even though Mary-Kate and Ashley have departed the entertainment scene, their last name is still making its rounds through the proverbial blacktop. Their younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, who many now know as Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a thriving Hollywood star. Like her sisters, Elizabeth’s life is much more private than most celebrities. She currently has no social media presence and appears only at red-carpet events, premieres, and interviews. Like her sisters, Elizabeth initially toyed with the idea of using a different last name to disassociate herself with favoritism. But at this point, her talent has spoken for itself with or without her famous moniker. I mean, have you seen WandaVision?

What can we expect from Mary-Kate and Ashley in the coming years? It’s hard to tell, given how private they are with their lives. We only hope that they’ll resurface in the public eye if and when they’re ready to. Until then, we can surely find them killing the fashion industry game and maintaining that no-social-media status.

Bob Saget tragically died on Sunday while staying at an Orlando hotel following a stop on his latest tour. In the days since his passing, we’ve heard an outpouring of stories from friends, family, and colleagues about how open and loving Saget was — and how he made an indelible impact on every person who came into his life.

But because Saget also seemed like an extremely down-to-earth celebrity, he had actually driven himself to the airport when he left town, which meant that his car was still parked at LAX in Los Angeles. So on Wednesday, John Mayer and Jeff Ross went on a mission to rescue the comic’s Prius from the airport, and on the way back, treated fans to a 25-minute Instagram Live conversation to remember their dear friend.

Warning, if you decide to watch the full video, you may want a box of tissues nearby.

A post shared by John Mayer 💎 (@johnmayer)

“We’re on the 405 [highway] remembering Bob Saget, a king in the comedy world — Bobby, daddy, our big brother — John and I went to pick up his car at LAX where he left it,” explained Ross, before Mayer asked if he could say a few things.

“I’ve just never known a human being this earth who could give that much love individually, and completely, to that many people,” said Mayer, struggling to find the right words. “In a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life, and he was a main character in their life.”

“He really was love, he represented that. He has a beautiful wife, three daughters, and then made his fake family from TV into his real family,” added Ross. “And I said to Jeff, 30,000 people are tied for third place,” Mayer added.

“We’ve been at the house for a couple of days, and it’s remarkable what a great family guy he was. I love Kelly so much, he loved Kelly so much,” added Ross. “He talked about his daughters. And I feel vulnerable, I feel less protected without him in the world.”

“I really loved the guy,” Ross later continued. “He was a comic before he was anything else. I’ve heard from a thousand comics in the past couple of days, and he loved making people happy. It didn’t matter who you were, it didn’t matter your stature, your status. Bob was a rock star without an assistant. Bob was a single dad for a long time, he raised three amazing, amazing people.”

The conversation kept coming back around to Saget’s Full House family, and how much they meant to him over the years.

“And he somehow took his TV family and also made them his real family, which is unheard of. Unheard of,” Ross continued, before reading some fan comments. “People all over the world are saying hi and telling us to be careful. Sing us some Full Fouse theme song? I’ve never seen that fucking show once, sorry,” he cracked, as both he and Mayer erupted into laughter.

Near the end of the conversation, the pair recalled how they found Saget’s car. “We went to four floors looking for it,” Ross recalled. “And, of course, he parked right by the entrance. He’s Bob Saget, he’s got rock star parking.”

“The parking company was, let’s just say unreceptive, to the idea that we were helping out a friend who’s no longer with us,” Mayer added, of the $250 fee they got dinged with on the way out. However, Ross insisted on footing the bill, not out of the goodness of his heart but so that he could ask for a receipt to keep in his wallet to remember Saget by.

“I actually never want to get out of this car,” said Mayer, before the two signed off. “I want to live in this car.”

‘Stranger Things’ fans think they’ve discovered clue to season 4 release date

itemprop=”headline name”>‘Stranger Things’ fans think they’ve discovered clue to season 4 release date

Christian Bone

Stranger Things fans think they might have discovered a clue telling us when we can expect season four to hit Netflix. The much-anticipated next run of the hit sci-fi series has been a long time coming, with it, unfortunately, being one of the most high-profile shows to be held up by the pandemic. After beginning at the top of 2020, filming took much of the next two years to complete. Work has now been finished on it, but we’re still waiting for an official release date.

But maybe a sneaky clue as to its due date was slipped into the teaser trailer that dropped last November. The trailer features a shot of a pizza van that veers off the road, with the pizzeria’s number plainly shown on its side: “805-45-PIZZA.” Obviously, fans immediately tried calling the number at the time, but it didn’t lead to anything interesting. If tried again now, however, it offers an intriguing tease at what’s to come.

Redditor u/mart_btar shared on the r/StrangerThings subreddit that they’ve given the number a call and it now plays “Happy Birthday music.” They wondered if it could be to do with “The Birthday”, the original title for season three’s sixth episode, “E Pluribus Unum.”

NEW Easter Egg found in latest Stranger Things 4 Teaser??? from StrangerThings

However, someone in the comments had an even more interesting idea. What if the birthday tune is telling us that season four will drop on the first season’s anniversary, aka July 15?

Comment from discussion Puzzled-Drive2805’s comment from discussion "NEW Easter Egg found in latest Stranger Things 4 Teaser???".

As another pointed out, July 15, 2022, is a Friday, which is when Netflix typically releases new seasons of its biggest shows.

Comment from discussion AnnualTumbleweed871’s comment from discussion "NEW Easter Egg found in latest Stranger Things 4 Teaser???".

A different fan who also called the number specified that the birthday music is “old timey”, which they suggest could reference season four’s Creel house subplot, which centers on a family who was murdered in the 1950s.

Comment from discussion A1-youWRIP’s comment from discussion "NEW Easter Egg found in latest Stranger Things 4 Teaser???".

Another great point that was raised is that Will Byers’ birthday is in the spring. This same trailer confirmed that season four would be set in the spring, so it stands to rights that Will — who’s canonically born on March 22 — will celebrate his birthday this season.

Comment from discussion ASTR0nomic4L’s comment from discussion "NEW Easter Egg found in latest Stranger Things 4 Teaser???".

There are various ways of interpreting this intriguing clue, then, but is it secretly telling us when to expect Stranger Things season four to land? Only time will tell.

Happy Peacemaker Day, DC fans! As of this Thursday, the first three episodes of the very first DCEU spinoff TV series are available to watch on HBO Max. And it seems that superhero-loving subscribers have wasted no time in binging all three. Writer/director James Gunn, who helmed this sequel to his 2021 summer blockbuster The Suicide Squad, got the hype started this morning on Twitter, reminding folks that it was premiere day.

“It’s #peacemaker day,” he wrote, causing fans to blast him with praise as those who’ve already caught up shared what they love about the show, which stars John Cena as the titular Peacemaker aka Christopher Smith, the world’s most violent pacifist.

it’s #peacemaker day

— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 13, 2022

“You chose a perfect cast for this series,” one fan said. “The scripts are absolutely hilarious!” they went on to add. “The action & fight scenes are badass!”

Thanks. https://t.co/aNo1HBZnlj

— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 13, 2022

Many fans were initially skeptical that Peacemaker was the right choice to lead a Suicide Squad spinoff, as he was such a hateable character in the movie, mostly due to his cold-blooded murder of the noble Rick Flag. However, these opening episodes seem to have convinced folks that Gunn made a good call on this one.

One fan revealed that he’s now in their top 10 DC characters after just the premiere. Gunn summed up why he thinks Smith makes for an unlikely hero. “#Peacemaker is an asshole,” he said, “but he’s our asshole. Not literally.”

#Peacemaker is an asshole, but he's our asshole. Not literally. https://t.co/ApT2zqebAm

— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 13, 2022

When one fan complained that HBO should have just released all eight episodes in one go, Gunn made clear that this wouldn’t be possible as the finale is still being worked on, with the score from composer Clint Mansell only just locked in. We can apparently expect that to be “INCREDIBLE.”

Not possible, as the post isn't fully done. Just recorded the orchestra for episode 8, which is INCREDIBLE. @iamclintmansell @KinerMusic #Peacemaker https://t.co/wSsqz2vtwA

After miraculously escaping death in The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker sees Smith once again enlisted to help save the world as part of the mysterious Operation: Butterfly. Cena is joined by TSS co-stars Jennifer Holland and Steve Agee, as well as franchise newcomers Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji, and Robert Patrick. Check out the first three episodes now on HBO Max.

It’s crazy to think that the Harry Potter film series is more than 20 years old, but perhaps that’s why Potterheads got so emotional with the recent release of Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, in spite of the fact that the HBO Max special didn’t consist of anything that diehard enthusiasts didn’t already know.

Indeed, the 100-minute feature basically consisted of a series of interviews with the cast and crew, though admittedly, seeing them all coming together to celebrate the achievement of J. K. Rowling’s Wizarding World in cinema was more than enough to compel many fans to rewatch the saga all over again.

But audiences weren’t the only ones to get teary-eyed at the prospect of this magnanimous reunion. Even Daniel Radcliffe broke down crying at one point during the special, and his co-star Emma Watson has candidly discussed the emotional bond between the trio on numerous occasions during the past couple of weeks.

Now, during a recent interview with British Vogue, the actress revealed that the three of them always keep in touch, but not to the extent that most people would imagine.

“They (Daniel and Rupert) both hate WhatsApp and their phones in general,” Emma said. “Actually, as a three, we really try and stay off electronics so that doesn’t help for a massive amount of back and forth. We aren’t on a group chat, but we speak individually. Rupert sends me pictures of [his daughter] Wednesday and I die. Dan and I generally try to calm each other’s nerves. We both mainly try and stay out of the limelight, so it’s been nice to have each other’s support, knowing there was going to be another wave of attention coming.”

When asked if she’d return for another reunion 20 years down the line, Watson said that she “definitely” would.

Think about how emotional you got with the 20th anniversary, and imagine what these actors are going to look like when they’re much older in two decades. I don’t suppose that’s something any of us would want to actually see.

itemprop=”headline name”>James Gunn says ‘Peacemaker’ is essentially a ‘massive prank’ on DC Universe

Jonathan Wright

Jan 13, 2022 6:52 am2022-01-13T06:52:18-05:00

Today marks the premiere of Peacemaker, the DCEU spinoff TV show that we’ve been patiently anticipating for more than a year. And according to showrunner James Gunn, if you liked John Cena’s titular character in The Suicide Squad, then you’re going to absolutely fall head over heels in love with him in this new series.

The promotional campaign for Peacemaker has made it clear that this particular project isn’t going to take itself too seriously, though to be honest, Gunn’s The Suicide Squad also perfectly maintained that vibe throughout its 132 minutes of runtime.

To that end, there’ll be tons of references and name-drops for other DCEU characters like Wonder Woman and Superman. As to why Gunn has decided to go in this direction with this show, here’s what the filmmaker recently said in an interview with ComicBook.com:

“It’s almost like playing a massive prank on the DCU. I think I can’t say there was some big thought process to it. I’m writing, and these things come up, and then I just sort of go with them. I do think that Peacemaker’s relationship to other superheroes is very specific. He is envious. He wants to be in that holy trinity of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. He is not. He wants to be a member of the Justice League, and they would never let him into the Justice League. He wishes that people loved him as much as they love Aquaman, but they don’t.”

That’s certainly quite the character dilemma to set up for Peacemaker, though given his inclination to achieve said peace at any cost, this isn’t going to bode well for the world of DCEU at large. Gunn further explained what other aspects of this particular antihero are comical in the context of the show, saying:

“So he believes anything and kind of picks out what he wants to believe on the Internet, which any random Joe has tweeted or put on. He also doesn’t quite understand the Internet. He’s not very well versed in the Internet, so he sees something on Facebook, and somehow he thinks that’s fact. But I think that it also serves his envy to be these things about people.”

Personally, we didn’t much care for John Cena’s character in The Justice League, which is hardly surprising given the film’s star-studded cast. Thanks to Gunn relentlessly increasing the hype factor, though, we can’t wait to see his solo journey unfold in the 8-episode HBO Max series.

What is the ‘Pulp Fiction’ NFT Lawsuit?

itemprop=”headline name”>What is the ‘Pulp Fiction’ NFT Lawsuit?

David James

Jan 13, 2022 6:42 am2022-01-13T06:42:09-05:00

Quentin Tarantino is a reliable source of controversy for the content of his movies but has lately been making headlines for a different reason. He’s currently engaged in a fierce dispute with Miramax over his plans to auction off NFTs based around his 1994 classic Pulp Fiction. Both sides have lawyered up and with the auctions imminent, things could get messy very fast.

So, here’s how it’s all going down.

On 2nd November 2021, Tarantino announced plans to sell seven uncut scenes from Pulp Fiction as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). These will consist of his own handwritten scripts and will include his own audio commentary. NFTs are controversial in their own right for many reasons, so this alone caused something of a fuss.

A week later, Miramax stepped in. The studio produced Pulp Fiction and claims that Tarantino doesn’t own the rights to his script. They promptly launched legal action, with their complaint alleging that:

“Tarantino’s conduct has forced Miramax to bring this lawsuit against a valued collaborator in order to enforce, preserve, and protect its contractual and intellectual property rights relating to one of Miramax’s most iconic and valuable film properties.” 

And that:

“Left unchecked, Tarantino’s conduct could mislead others into believing Miramax is involved in his venture and it could also mislead others into believing they have the rights to pursue similar deals or offerings, when in fact Miramax holds the rights needed to develop, market, and sell NFTs relating to its deep film library.”

Tarantino’s lawyers shot back, releasing a statement saying they’re confident that “Tarantino was acting within his ‘Reserved Rights,’ specifically the right to ‘screenplay publication’ with the NFT plan”.

The first Pulp Fiction NFT auctions are scheduled to begin next week, and a few days ago Miramax lawyer Bart H. Williams sent a letter warning of dire financial consequences for Tarantino if he proceeds:

“Whatever limited rights Mr. Tarantino has to screenplay publication, they do not permit the minting of unique NFTs associated with Miramax’s intellectual property, and his contrary position is the subject of a pending lawsuit … What your press release calls Mr. Tarantino’s ‘never-before-seen handwritten screenplay’ cannot yet be ‘iconic; or a ‘fan favorite,’ so it is transparent that you and Mr. Tarantino are trying to capitalize on Miramax’s content, intellectual property rights, and brand.”

And:

“Assuming that you (like Mr. Tarantino) plan on going forward with the auction, please be on notice that you are doing so at your own risk, including the risk that you will later owe the proceeds of any sales to Miramax along with other potential damages. We would hope that you also inform prospective purchasers of the risks of purchasing these unauthorized NFTs, including that purchasers may have to return the NFTs to Miramax and forfeit the price they paid for such NFTs, and that purchasers may incur additional liability in the event they later sell the unauthorized NFTs (including the potential for statutory damages).”

Tarantino’s lawyer Bryan Freedman succinctly responded:

“Quentin Tarantino’s contract is clear: he has the right to sell NFTs of his hand-written script for Pulp Fiction and this ham-fisted attempt to prevent him from doing so will fail.”

The first court date is scheduled for February 24 with a substantive hearing to follow later in the year. Over the next few days, the big question will be whether Tarantino blinks. After all, he doesn’t need the money, the prospect of paying heavy damages to Miramax is a genuine risk, and the NFT purchasers finding that their sales were unauthorized may present such a headache that he backs down.

But, given what we know of his personality, I doubt he’ll change course. In December, he dismissed Miramax’s action as “offensively meritless” and hinted that this is all because the studio’s reputation has been destroyed by Harvey Weinstein’s rape convictions.

Either way, we’ll know for sure on January 17 when the first Pulp Fiction NFT goes on sale, with subsequent auctions taking place until January 27. Expect fireworks.

‘Moon Knight’ may be heading back for reshoots

itemprop=”headline name”>‘Moon Knight’ may be heading back for reshoots

David James

Jan 13, 2022 5:48 am2022-01-13T05:48:55-05:00

2021 was a great year for Marvel Studios, but after Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans face a long wait for new content. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is coming in May, but we don’t know what’s airing next on Disney Plus.

The top candidate is Moon Knight. This hotly anticipated project will introduce Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight ⏤ a dark, weird, and supernaturally-themed hero known for his surreal and intense adventures. That wrapped last year, though we now have indications that reshoots are about to begin.

The rumor comes from Michael Hernandez, Oscar Isaac’s brother via Twitter channel @OscarIsaacInfo, who reposted this telling Instagram story:

Michael Hernandez, Oscar Isaac's brother, posted this to his Instagram Stories earlier today (January 11, 2022) #MoonKnight https://t.co/S9n6e9qhnK pic.twitter.com/yCRKYGKzKo

— Oscar Isaac News (@OscarIsaacInfo) January 12, 2022

This isn’t hard to decode. We can see the Moon Knight logo, the picture is taken on a flight, and “time to finish what we started” makes sense as a reference to reshoots.

It’s difficult to say whether this will affect the release date as it’s unclear how substantial these reshoots are going to be. I’m hoping they’re a few quick alterations to scenes rather than a complete reworking, as there’s still an outside chance this show could premiere on Disney Plus in late spring.

The other 2022 Disney Plus shows don’t seem quite as ready. Ms. Marvel was supposed to be out by now, but Disney has delayed it until the Summer. She-Hulk has also wrapped, and we’ve seen a teaser trailer, though the effects-heavy nature of the show means it needs a long time in post-production.

Let’s hope we get some dates and a Moon Knight trailer soon, as a five-month gap between new MCU content is way too long!

Temuera Morrison wants to play Captain Rex and Commander Cody

itemprop=”headline name”>Temuera Morrison wants to play Captain Rex and Commander Cody

David James

Jan 13, 2022 5:32 am2022-01-13T05:32:10-05:00

Playing a character who gets cloned thousands of times is a great career move. Since he made his debut as Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, Temuera Morrison has been a fixture in Star Wars. He’s played Commander Cody in Revenge of the Sith, was inserted into the DVD version of The Empire Strikes Back, has done a lot of voice-acting for Star Wars video games, and is currently cutting it up as the lead in The Book of Boba Fett.

With Disney Plus’ Star Wars line-up set to explode over the next few years, he’s now got his eye on playing two other clones of Jango. In an interview with the Washington Post, he was asked about his future roles in a galaxy far, far away and said:

Well, there are people — I’m thinking of Captain Rex for one. He looks a little like me. There’s Commander Cody. What happened to those guys? There’s all those clone armies. That could be something fresh and new and exciting.

Given the clones’ accelerated aging both characters would be quite elderly post-Return of the Jedi., though could theoretically still be alive. If they were, they’re going to be very different characters despite being genetically identical.

Commander Cody, who appeared throughout The Clone Wars, succumbed to Order 66 and attempted to kill Obi-Wan Kenobi. After the Jedi General tumbled down a pit, he assumed the job was done and became a Stormtrooper in the Imperial Era, with his last known mission subjugating the Wookiees on Kashyyyk. By now, he’s either dead or retired – though I doubt the Empire’s plan for elderly troopers is particularly kind.

Rex managed to overcome his programming and joined the Rebellion. There’s long been a fan theory that a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it character in Return of the Jedi is Rex. His potential appearance is in Han’s raiding party on Endor, which features a character with a strikingly familiar white beard. His creator Dave Filoni has even said, “I really do think that Rex is that guy on Endor“.

He’s also a longtime comrade of Ahsoka Tano, so if either of these characters is going to return, it’s likely Rex in her upcoming solo show. It’d be fun to see Morrison play each of these cloned characters differently. Here’s hoping he gets the chance.

2021 bought fans multiple new Marvel films to kick off phase four and one of the most unique was Eternals.

Eternals, which arrives on Disney Plus today, endeavored to introduce a full cast of new characters into the MCU will 11 taking the focus. This led to a ton of backstory that, for some viewers, might have got confusing or forgotten amongst other events in the film.

With Eternals, Celestials, and Deviants there was a lot to stomach, but thankfully there’s plenty of information from within the film along with extra context from the comics to provide insight into how their complex relationship works.

In this article we’ll be breaking down the Celestials, Deviants, and Eternals and how they fit in with each other and amongst the greater Marvel universe. To understand their relationships more clearly we’ll have to touch on the film so be warned there are serious spoilers for Eternals below.

At the top of the heap, you’ve got the Celestials, the architects of existence. These cosmic beings take a high-standing place amongst the Marvel totem pole as some of the most powerful in the whole franchise.

In the film, the origins of the Celestials weren’t explored in-depth, but the comics share much more of their story which may or may not come to fruition in the MCU.

Within the MCU, the Celestials are responsible for creating the planets, stars, and lifeforms with the intention of using these planets to birth more of their kind.

The Celestials descended upon these planets eventually creating the Eternals and Deviants with intentions of keeping the beings on each planet safe so that it could assist with bringing new Celestials to life.

The Deviants take the role of the antagonist for the majority of the Eternals film. This species, created by the Celestials, was sent to planets with the mission to eliminate apex predators and ensure the survival of the inhabitants of the planet until the growing Celestial is set to emerge.

Unfortunately, this plan didn’t work so well and the Deviants turned killing lifeforms and ultimately causing more harm than good for the Celestials plan. In response, they sent the Eternals to deal with them.

The stars of the film and our protagonists, the Eternals are another species created by the Celestials with the intention of ensuring civilization develops on planets enough so that the Celestial being inside can grow.

Their main way of doing this is to destroy the Deviants. For centuries they had eliminated the Deviant threat on Earth, but due to strange events, the Deviants returned and came back ready to fight.

In the film, the Eternals are led by Ajak. Alongside her are also Ikaris, Sersi, Thena, Kingo, Sprite, Druig, Makkari, and Phastos. Each of the Eternals boast their own unique powers. Outside of this group sent to Earth, there are a ton of other Eternals within the universe working for the Celestials on different planets.

What does it all mean?

While this has been a brief overview of the relationship between these three species within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Eternals comics and other Marvel comics showcase that their backstories and connections with one another run far deeper and impact the overall universe ever greater.

The release of Scream, the latest film in the beloved franchise, is imminent and, as fans prepare to experience its slasher mystery, director Matt Bettinelli-Oplin has one request.

In a post on social media, the director asked fans who see the film during its release week to look out for fellow fans and keep the secrets of the film to themselves.

“As opening day approaches, we’d like to ask you a small favor – please be kind to your fellow fans and keep spoilers to yourselves. The whole cast and crew worked so hard over the last two years to keep our many secrets, so that everyone can hopefully have the same kind of experience we did when we first fell in love with Scream – spoiler free.”

Via Twitter

Scream is the fifth entry into the franchise and it appears to live up to the legacy that the series has built. According to those who saw the film at an early screening, it looks to be the greatest film in the franchise since the first.

One of the selling points also appears to be the many twists that will have you guessing the whole way through, making Bettinelli-Oplin’s plea to those who see it in release week all the more important.

Like all movies, it doesn’t seem likely that all fans will adhere to this request so if you are worried about being spoiled make sure you check the film out ASAP. Scream launches in theaters on Jan. 13.

The question of whether Pete Davidson is dating Kim Kardashian is still up for debate for many, despite a new claim from TMZ that new pictures of the pair engaging in public displays of affection outright confirms the long-held rumors.

The publication shared a recent story on the matter on Wednesday, featuring photos of the pair embracing.

However, many people on the social media site were not convinced they are an official couple “for real.”

One Twitter user pointed out how Kim’s body language in the embrace photos seem to be “a friend hug,” by their estimation. “[L]look at how her head is turned away 🤗,” wrote @mambuitumelo.

Another user, @atravernell1, added that they agreed with that assessment, saying Davison appeared to them as “still in the friend zone. They’re not even kissing. He even has a mask on.”

I have to agree. He’s still in the friend zone. They’re not kissing. He even has on a mask

— Ashley Ravernell (@atravernell1) January 12, 2022

It’s notable that the TMZ article also featured pictures and video clips of Kardashian and Davidson holding hands, and getting pizza and ice cream together.

Another social media user wondered if this wasn’t part of a bigger picture between Kardashian and ex-husband Kanye West getting back at each other by being seen in public with “rebound dates.”

Kim and Kanye probably need to give this "dating in public" thing a break and try to end what they had in a private healthy way. It seems they want to show each other that they've moved on. They're using the paparazzi to send that message to each other thru these "rebound dates"

— Mello (@mello6789) January 12, 2022

Another social media user pointed out how, should Davidson and Kardashian be an official “item,” it must be awkward to hang out with each other without a moment of privacy due to constant paparazzi.

Davidson and Kim have been long suspected to be dating, due to past images surfacing showing the pair hanging out together. The speculation is so on fire at the moment that many are guessing a shadow in one of Kardashian’s Instagram posts belongs to Davidson.

Crypto investors are suing Kim Kardashian and Floyd Mayweather over endorsement

A group of highly recognizable celebrities are being sued over their endorsements of cryptocurrency EthereumMax.

Kim Kardashian, Floyd Mayweather and former Boston Celtic Paul Pierce were all named in the suit, according to NBC news. All three peddled the coin to their fans, and according to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, it caused “investors to purchase these losing investments at inflated prices.”

The suit also alleges that the celebs worked together to make “false or misleading statements” in their respective social media posts.

Kardashian posted an ad for the coin last year in an Instagram post.

“Are you guys into crypto???” the post said, with the hashtag ad at the bottom. “This is not financial advice but sharing what my friends told me about the ethereum max token! A few minutes ago Ethereum Max burned 400 trillion tokens – literally 50% of their admin wallet giving back to the entire e-max community.”

While it’s not clear who paid Kardashian for the message, sources, via CNBC, say her fee hovers between $500k and $1 million for a sponsored post.

Mayweather touted the coin during his highly publicized fight with YouTube star Logan Paul. EthereumMax was accepted as a form of payment for the fight, which the lawsuit states manipulated trading volumes. Mayweather also went to a bitcoin conference and publicized EthereumMax.

Plaintiff Ryan Huegerich from New York and other investors bought EtherumMax from May to June of last year. The coin has lost about 97% of its value since then investors are calling it a “pump and dump” scheme. The lawsuit says the coin’s name was meant to imply a connection to the Ethereum Network – a credible cryptocurrency vehicle.

Mayweather has been in a similar situation before. In 2018 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission charged him with touting a different coin with an initial coin offering. He was charged for failing to disclose that he got $100k to promote Centra Tech’s coin. Two Centra Tech founders were arrested on charges of securities and wire fraud. The SEC said they were “touting nonexistent relationships between Centra and well-known financial institutions” to get people to invest.

Mayweather settled for $600k, without admitting or denying fault.

Kardashian was singled out by U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority for the EthereumMax ad in a speech about crypto scams. Charles Randell, who chairs the FCA, said “social media influencers are routinely paid by scammers to help them pump and dump new tokens on the back of pure speculation.”

Coachella has finally revealed to fans its complete lineup for 2022 which will be headlined by Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Ye — the artist formerly known as Kanye West.

The announcement today showcased the complete stacked lineup for the event with a ton of other big names making up the weekend-long event, with the same lineup playing two weekends in April. The official announcement also confirms reports from last week that Billie Eilish and Ye would be headlining the event, but with the new addition of Harry Styles that was reported earlier today.

This will be the first time Coachella has been held since 2019. The 2020 event was set to be headlined by Rage Against the Machine, Frank Ocean, and Travis Scott. This lineup was supposed to be maintained as the event was pushed to 2021 and then again to 2022, however, for multiple reasons, these headliners had to bow out of the event.

Day one on both weekends will be headlined by Harry Styles with other performances from Lil Baby, Daniel Ceasar, Phoebe Bridgers, Big Sean, Baby Keem, and a ton more.

On day two, Billie Eilish will headline along with acts like Flume, Megan Thee Stallion, Disclosure, 21 Savage, Danny Elfman, and more.

Closing out both weekends will be Ye, with Doja Cat, Joji, Jamie XX, Run the Jewels, Karol G, and a ton of other artists. You can check out the full lineup here.
