New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer, Ryan Gosling Talks His First Big Budget Feature








  • Blade Runner 2049 is his first big budget feature film and he's glad he waited because he feels BR2049 was the right project. A big fan of the original, he recalls pretending to be Blade Runners with his friends when he first moved to Los Angeles.

  • All of the budget went into the film so the food trucks and catering were kind of lacking.

  • Ryan hopes cinematographer Roger Deakins wins an Oscar for BR2049.

Comedian And Civil Rights Activist Dick Gregory Dies At 84




Dick Gregory, the comedian and civil rights crusader, died Saturday. He was 84.

Gregory gained attention as a comedian in the early 1960s, and was the first black comedian to widely win plaudits from white audiences.

-He was noted for his political and social activism, beginning in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. He attended the historic 1963 March on Washington.

-He ran for mayor of Chicago in 1967 and ran for president in 1968 under the Freedom and Peace Party. He was on the ballot in eight states and got 47,133 votes, as Ken Rudin wrote for NPR.

-Hunger strikes were a frequent activist tool for Gregory. He told Juan Williams on Talk of the Nation that he went without solid food for two and a half years to protest the war in Vietnam.

-At one point, he said he weighed 365 pounds. But he lost a lot of weight fasting to protest the war. "I went on a fast, 40 days of water. Forty days of fruit juice. Forty days of fruit. And then 40 days of water again," Gregory told NPR.

-In 2000, Gregory went on a hunger strike to protest police brutality, long before the current wave of activism.

-Was influential to pretty much everyone, and everything.

'Edge of Tomorrow 2' Only Happening Because Fans Wanted It


  • The director (Doug Liman) is usually against sequels but came up with an idea he calls 'shockingly revolutionary' (Uh huh) And fans kept asking for it, more so than for Bourne Identity.

  • The original film had rather odd marketing that didn't help it very much, making 100$m domestically, but critics liked it.

  • Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise are returning.

  • This would be their first ever #1 album in their entire career of releasing masterpieces.

The most controverisal song on the record that's been brought up in the overwhelmingly positive reviews is Desert, written from the point of view of a homophobic super conservative man, with lyrics like "I've seen those boys kissing boys with their mouth on the street/ But I raised my son to be a righteous man, I made it clear to him what fear of God means". The song is mocking Catholic/Christian views for being hypocritical af.

Another Woman Comes Forward With Allegations Against R. Kelly




- Jim DeRogatis, the journalist who broke the story of R. Kelly's sex cult, has written another piece in which a woman claims that Kelly had sex with her when she was only 16.

-The woman, Jerhonda Pace, met Kelly when she was 15. She was a fan of his and was attending his child pornography trial. After the trial she was invited to his house where they engaged in sexual activity when she was just 16-years-old, although she had lied about her age and told Kelly that she was 19.

-When she revealed her true age to Kelly, he apparently told her that she "should say she was 19 and act like she was 25".

-Claims Kelly caught her texting a friend and he proceeded to slap, choke, and spit on her.

-Pace lawyered up, took a cash settlement from R. Kelly, and signed a non-disclosure agreement, which she is breaking now by speaking to the press. She claims she was only paid a portion of what Kelly had agreed to pay.

If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that’s what I will do. I didn’t have anybody to speak up on my behalf when I was going through what I was going through with him. He’s brainwashed them really bad, and it kind of reminds me of Charles Manson… I just really hope I can help these women out. Kelly needs to be stopped.



Will 2017 be the year R. Kelly is finally held accountable for his actions?

Yvette Nicole Brown reveals her experience with pay inequality




She was paid the same as a white male guest star.
She refuses to identify the show, but she’s clear it wasn’t her new series, ABC’s “The Mayor,” or her first as a regular cast member, NBC’s “Community.”
Brown soon realized she was making far less than the other series regulars on the show.
She was making what a guy coming for a week was making, because she is a black woman.
Brown says minorities don’t have as many opportunities to book pilots. She has been in the running for four pilots in her life, and has booked three of them.
She says white actresses can go out for four pilots on a Tuesday morning.

Promo for Midnight, Texas (aka The Summer Show ONTD Should Be Watching) Episode 6

NBC has given us a show to (sort of) fill the gap left by the first three season of True Blood: Midnight, Texas! This summer show has it all, a nice plot, pretty actors and the supernatural element.


Midnight, Texas is based on the book series of the same name by author Charlaine Harris who also wrote The Southern Vampire Mysteries, the novels which were adapted into the True Blood television series. Most likely there will not be any crossovers (because obvious reasons) and so far it feels like a budget version of True Blood

thank you for your help, mods!

Mariah Carey: ‘I have always had low self-esteem’




“I just feel like I am a regular human being and I deserve the same respect as anybody else. I have always had low self-esteem, and people do not recognize that. I can’t measure what type of respect I deserve. I really can’t.”

"Growing up different, being biracial, having the whole thing where I did not know if I fit in . . . That is why music became such a big part of my life, because it helped me overcome those issues. Sometimes it is hard to let your guard down.”

“I do think to myself, ‘Did they mean this? Or do they not really mean it?’ And that is with everybody, it is not just with three people or just one.”

“I remember it not being easy getting a record deal. Making demos in the middle of the night, sleeping on the floor in the studio, being broke with no food. My go-to meal was [Newman’s Own] sauce. Me and my friend would split the pasta and sauce for, like, a week. Or it was, like, a bagel and iced tea . . . The guy would give it to me at the deli for free.”

Lakeith Stanfield (L) explains why Netflix’s new Death Note film isn’t whitewashing


"As far as the issue of whitewashing, I think it's a fundamental misunderstanding. Especially when applied to this film in particular, because this film takes place in Seattle, in America. So it would make sense that the cast reflects American demographics.

There is an Asian-American [character] in the film. If people would go out and see it, they would realize that. But the idea that we should turn the whole cast into a Japanese cast just doesn't fit the demographics of America. And that's the reason it didn't happen. It's not because we were trying to make a conscious decision to not cast — at least, this is my opinion. I'm not the person in charge of it.

I understand why people would be mad. I understand people who are really big fans of the source material would not like to see it changed. I totally get that. I've been hearing the term “blackwashing,” which is funny, as applied to me with L. I just think it's great. I love that word."

We are proud to support the Southern Poverty Law Center in its efforts to prevent violent extremism in the United States. What happened in Charlottesville, and what is happening in communities across our country, demands our collective engagement to stand up to hate.

Gemma Arterton on how she was bullied to lose weight at the beginning of her career




"There was one film when we were in Morocco and a couple of weeks passed and they literally were like, 'We need a personal trainer – stat,'. And they flew someone out overnight that gave up their whole life to be with me and be my personal trainer. You know when it's like that – is it that fucking bad that I need an emergency…it was as if they were on speed dial."

"They'd measure me and they'd call up the personal trainer at like nine at night going 'Is she in the gym. And if she isn't, why isn't she in the gym?' And then they'd get me in the gym and film me in the gym so they'd know I was there."

"There was one day when I went to get some snacks and I got some dried apricots. And the man went, this big fat, obese producer went: 'I hope you're not going to eat that'."
