Trailer for Cinemax's "Warrior" based on the writings of Bruce Lee




- "Warrior" centers on the Tongs in 1870s Chinatown, San Francisco.
- The show is based on a treatment Bruce Lee created and pitched to Warner Brothers nearly 50 years ago but was rejected because they didn't believe audiences wouldn't go for a Chinese man as a lead of an American TV Show. Following that, Warner Brothers made the series "Kung Fu" starring white man David Carradine.
- Produced by Justin Lin (Fast and Furious franchise) and Shannon Lee (Bruce Lee's daughter)
- It stars Andrew Koji, Olivia Cheng, Jason Tobin, Kieran Bew, Dianne Doan, Dean S. Jagger, Landley Kirkwoord, Joanna Vanderham, Hoong Lee, Joe Taslim and more.

LOL JK! Stephen Curry was just joking about moon landing conspiracy, "silently protesting"


- Earlier this week, Stephen Curry and two other NBA players/podcast hosts doubted the 1969 moon landing: "They're gonna come get us, I don't think so either. Sorry, I don't want to start conspiracies."

- He's now backtracking but not Apollogizing: "Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast. [Then] I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law as, 'Oh my God, he's a fake-moon-landing truther,' whatever you want to call it, yada, yada, yada. So I was silently protesting that part about it, how the story took a life of its own."

- What is he going to do next? He's going to NASA!: "One thousand percent. I am definitely going to take [NASA] up on their offer [to educate him]. I am going to educate myself firsthand on everything that NASA has done and shine a light on their tremendous work over the years. And hopefully people understand that education is power, informing yourself is power."

- He launches a message to his young fans: "For kids out there that hang on every word that we say, which is important, understand that you should not believe something just because somebody says it. You should do your homework and understand what you actually believe."

No one wants to play with Maroon 5 at the Super Bowl



According to Us Weekly nobody wants to guest with Maroon 5 at the Super Bowl, their only hope for having an even remotely enjoyable performance. They're begging Cardi to do it, but she told TMZ last year that she wouldn't perform at the Super Bowl unless Colin Kaepernick is hired by a team. Two shitty halftimes shows in a row (after Mayo of the Woods tanked last year) would set a bad precedent for what was once considered a prestigious gig that produced legendary performances by the likes of Prince, Beyonce, and Bruce Springsteen, but really it's the NFL and Pepsi's fault for overlooking all of the artists from Atlanta.

'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' kicks off Thursday box office with $3.5M take




This weekend finally has some big releases, starting off with the critically-acclaimed 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse', which has already brought in $3.5 million, and is expected to make around $30 million this weekend (on a $90M budget).

Also out is the critically meh 'Mortal Engines', which made a pretty embarrassing $675,000 on Thursday, and is expected to bring in around $10 million to $15 million this weekend (on a - oof - $100 million budget). This one can join 'Robin Hood' as massively unnecessarily box office bombs.

Clint Eastwood's latest, 'The Mule', is released today (so no Thurs previews), and is also expected to make around $10 million to $15 million, and I reckon it cost WAY less than $100M to make.

Additionally in limited release this weekend is the stunningly beautiful 'If Beale Street Could Talk', and the re-edited 'Once Upon a Deadpool', which was released Wednesday (and took in $1 million then, with most proceeds going to F-Cancer).

ONTD Original: I listened to Zayn’s 27-track album “Icarus Falls” so you wouldn’t have to




Tired, long, confused, dehydrated but somewhat enjoyable. Just some of the words to describe my long journey. I literally was in the comfort of my own home while listening and reviewing Zayn’s latest album yet it felt like I walked through one long mumbling desert. I contemplated giving up about 11-12 tracks in, but I slapped myself out of it and pressed forward. Certain I’d find the bops. Something.

1. Let Me - Let me skip this one, I’ve heard it and while it’s not terrible I’m sure there were better songs to open the album with. The song does make me want to go and get vanilla ice cream tho.🍦

2. Natural - Decent mid-tempo track, lots of falsetto in the chorus.

3. Back to Life - Starts off slow but builds and picks up. Dare I say, I found my first bop™.

Titans Season 1 finale promo: Trigon who? It's Batman vs. Robin!



-In the Season 1 finale of Titans it seems like they are ignoring the whole Trigon storyline they've spent the season building up to to instead focus on Dick Grayson confronting his mentor Batman. Well...this will most likely be a trick by the big T.

-This will be Batmans first "television" appearance since Birds of Prey back in 2002.

-As such DC is giving a discount to new subscribers (screw you DCU!) by offering $3.99/month for 3 months, or a full year for $59.99 through December 20th. (I want my $20 refund!)

Ariana Grande wants you to focus on her new single and not Kanye's drama



In the midst of Kanye's one-sided twitter fight last night, Ariana Grande decided to chime in that everyone should stop focusing on 'grown men arguing' and instead pay attention to her new single release 'Imagine' (and Miley, who released a Christmas single)

The singer faced heavy backlash from hip-hop fans, who accused her of "attention-seeking" and "clout chasing".

She responded to one of the criticisms, again tagging Miley.

Prada apologizes and removes racist products with blackface imagery from stores



It all started when Chinyere Ezie posted a photo of the monkey-like figures featured in the window display of Prada's SoHo, Manhattan, store online. Her post quickly inspired backlash against the luxury brand.

The $550 “creatures” are a part of Prada’s new “Pradamalia” line of small cartoon toys and keychains that come in different colors. The black and brown characters have oversized red lips, traditionally associated with blackface.

“Prada Group abhors racist imagery. The Pradamalia are fantasy charms composed of elements of the Prada oeuvre. They are imaginary creatures not intended to have any reference to the real world and certainly not blackface. Prada Group never had the intention of offending anyone and we abhor all forms of racism and racist imagery. In this interest, we will withdraw all of the characters in question from display and circulation,” said the company in an official statement.

Riverdale Roundup: New Farm Convert?, Lili Photoshoot w/Photoshop Drama, and Interviews



RAS talks some more about upcoming "theme" episodes. His inner Glee writer jumped out.
-“One episode we’re doing is an episode called ‘Bizarrodale,’ which treats- instead of Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead being the Core Four, it treats Kevin, Cheryl, Reggie and Josie as the Core Four. And it’s a really fun episode. A really fun episode. I’m really excited about that one"
-"And then we have an episode- the show has always been noir and always trending noir. But we’ve got an episode coming up that is completely noir: how it’s written, how it’s shot, the plot of it. And it’s really fun.”
-And then he's previously mentioned an episode about the teens taking their SATs

And the mention of crossovers isn't really anything
-“There’s one thing I’m trying to figure out that’s a nice Easter egg that I’m trying to get permission to do — but it’s too soon to talk about yet. We’re still in production on the second part of ‘Sabrina,’ we haven’t wrapped yet. I think right now our focus is all on wrapping up and getting that landed in a great way. I think once that’s behind us, I think we’ll be able to really investigate and have the conversations about this. That’s my hope at least.”

DC Comics cancels Border Town after writer exposed as sexual abuser

Comic book Border Town has been immediately canceled by DC after its writer, Eric Esquivel, was exposed for being a sexual abuser. DC has stated that issues already sold of the book are returnable.

Several days ago, toy designer Cynthia Naugle wrote a post in her blog about the sexual, mental and emotional abuse she suffered from someone she considered a friend. She did not name him but retweeted people who outright stated it was Esquivel and that he been known as a creep. Naugle has also been tweeting comments of support, where women have stated their own incidents with him.

BT's colorist, Tamra Bonvillain, quit the book on Wednesday. She says during a thread on Twitter that her and artist Ramon Villalobos were advised to stay on the sidelines, but she could no longer keep quiet when it was obvious Esquivel had no interest in saying anything. Villabos also released a statement where he mentions that there were always rumors about Esquivel but they were vague and no real specifics had ever been given. He says no one on the team knew about Cynthia's story. Both he and Tamra apologized for not seeing clearly. Outside of retweets, editor Andy Khouri has not tweeted anything in several days.

Esquivel deleted all his social media, except Twitter, where his tweets have been deleted and his account locked.

BT has been highly-acclaimed and made several end-of-year lists as a series and for Esquivel's writing. Popular site Multiversity Comics removed Esquivel from its 'breakout writers' list after the news broke.

‘Queer Eye’ Star Tan France Accuses TSA Of Racial Profiling At Airports



Tan France is tired of having to clear extra security hurdles because of the colour of his skin.

France gave more details on his Instagram Story, explaining,
“What happens is, when you’re checking in, they tell you that you can’t use your pre-check because there’s a security issue. At that point, they take you out of line, and then they search you, and they give you a pat down—which is humiliating—where they check everything. Hopefully they’ll see this at some point and figure out why the fuck they’re treating me like this, because I know the answer. I know why I’m being profiled.”
