Did Ya'll Know There was a NEW INTERNATIONAL BLOODSHOT trailer out? Me neither.



It kind of snuck in there the day after Sony dropped their MORBIUS trailer. This is also by Sony (The studio that bought you Spider-Man: Homecoming, 🎉Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse🎉, and Spider-Man: Far From Home)

Based on the bestselling comic book, Vin Diesel ("The Pacifier") stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation.

With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.

Jeopardy Greatest of All Time Winner Crowned



Jeopardy finally answered the question "Who is the greatest player of all time" last night, as Ken Jennings won the tournament over fellow Jeopardy record holders James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter.

*Ken won a 3 games to 1 margin over James Holtzhauer. James had a chance to win last night's game to tie the tournament, but the tripped up the Final Jeopardy category (his weakest category, Shakespeare) allowing Ken to take it all.

*After the tournament, James was charged with murder for this epic burn on fellow contestant Brad Rutter, who basically existed in the tournament to be a third person, to find and miss 90% of the Daily Doubles, and to get to go first in every round of Double Jeopardy:

Collapse )

*Brad ended up collecting $250,000 for doing nothing, so I guess he's really the winner?

*Jennings walked away with a trophy and a cool million.

*Alex did not name Ken his replacement as host at the end as many thought he would.

Mark Wahlberg and Dr. Oz can’t agree on whether breakfast is important




Daytime television host Dr. Mehmet Oz has caused a ruckus on social media after his comments suggesting that we should cancel breakfast. Oz, who believes in an intermittent fasting program, has made a resolution to skip breakfast this year.

“I think for 2020, the first thing I’m going to do is ban breakfast,” the celebrity doctor told TMZ. “I don’t think we need to eat breakfast. That’s an advertising ploy.”

He continues, “Unfortunately, a lot of the dogma that we were fed for decades came out of advertisements. It wasn’t really based on the truth around our health. The smartest thing for us to do is cancel breakfast. Have your first meal when you’re actually hungry — which if you’re intermittent fasting and you haven’t had a late dinner, it won’t happen until midway through morning.”

Mark Wahlberg was asked by TMZ if he agreed with Dr. Oz’s contention that breakfast is not an important meal. “Listen, I don't care what Dr. Oz says, I gotta have my breakfast before I work out,” Wahlberg said. “That’s my preference.”

“I know a lot of people do a lot of intermittent fasting and stuff like that, but you know what you do? You go to F45 and get that 45-minute workout better than any workout out there, and you start getting in shape. Tell Dr. Oz to come work out,” he added.

Mark Hamill gets lost original Star Wars soundtrack back after it was found by an Arizona book store



- A used book store in Arizona called Bookmans Flagstaff found the album, signed by composer John Williams to Mark Hamill, when a woman sold her late father's Star Wars memoribilia to them in July 2018.

- The inscription said “Dear Mark Hamill, May the Force always be with us”.

- The album was marked as "not for distribution" and the signature was obviously real, so the staff didn't know what to do with it. They put it in an office in the store and it sat there for a year and a half.

- Around Christmas 2019 the album was advertised in the store for sale for $499.50, but the shop owner decided to reach out to Hamill after a few days to see if he'd like it back.

- After sharing the album on Twitter Hamill saw it. He didn't realize he'd been missing it and he knew he'd never sell it, so he's not sure how he lost possession of it.

- Hamill says he hadn't seen the album since the early 90s, but he assummed it was in the basement of his home where he keeps all his vinyl.

- Hamill doesn't keep much of his Star Wars memoribilia. Aside from the album some of the few items he's chosen to keep are his boots from the first film and the stormtrooper costume he wore to rescue Leia.

'Guns Akimbo' Trailer



Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Samara Weaving, Ned Dennehy
Writer/Director: Jason Lei Howden
Plot: Nerdy video game developer (Daniel Radcliffe) is a little too fond of stirring things up on the internet with his caustic, prodding, and antagonizing comments. One night, he makes the mistake of drunkenly dropping an inflammatory barb on a broadcast of Skizm, an illegal death-match fight club streamed live to the public. In response, Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the maniacal mastermind behind the channel, decides to force Miles' hand (or hands, as it were) and have him join the "fun." Miles wakes to find heavy pistols bolted into his bones, and learns Nix (Samara Weaving), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent.
Release Date: March 5th, 2020

Selena Gomez is done ‘protecting people that never protected me’



Selena Gomez tells Billboard she's no longer staying quiet.

The singer says that she “used to be terrified of saying anything.”

“I would find myself protecting people that never protected me or cared for me. And I wouldn’t want to say the wrong thing, and I wouldn’t want people to think that I had any other motive, other than just being a kind person — though that is who I am and I am proud of that.”

The 27-year-old pop star recently defended pal Taylor Swift in her ongoing feud against Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta at Big Machine Label Group over the ownership of Swift’s master recordings.

“I was just done, you know? Just done being silent, and I felt like I deserved to have a moment for myself, after going through so much, and throwing that all into this album. It wasn’t even a thought in my mind that I was doing the wrong thing.”

Laurie Heaps, the celebrity hairstylist behind Ferreira's 'do, says the Euphoria actress wanted "something piecey and Elf-like". Thus, the "modern mullet" was born.

Whoopi asks if he watched debate. MB says it was the best debate in 2020. Haha. Didn’t feel like it addressed much. A lot of he said, she said. Felt scripted. We should think about another format. Abby wanted to see him up there. MB would prefer to be in the debate. Steyer is self-funded but he’s in the debate vs MB. Says lobbyists never went to his end at City Hall, went 12 yrs self-funded, would do the same thing as Potus. T45 is corrupt. If you can afford to be self-funded, then you should. Abby talks about his Twitter feed last night. MB plays it coy. They have a laugh about it. He likes meatballs. People thought he was hacked, but he was not! Social media folks were having some fun. Everyone is so serious. MB skipping the first 4 states but not by choice, it was because he entered late. Liked some candidate ideas, saw other ideas that seemed nice but couldn’t be implemented. Wouldn’t have time to build a ground base in the early states. MB doesn’t think he’s buying his way in. He’s spending money to beat T45. Talks about how he became personally wealthy. Considers it an investment in America like he invests in (anti) tobacco and guns.

Joy wonders what others will do with all their billions, but he’s spending his own money to avoid taking donations from voters or special interests. How will he spend money. MB talks about ground operation, 10 offices through certain states. Sunny likes what he’s said and stood for and she has friends who support him. Not everyone is happy all the time, but we’re open and honest, if he makes wrong decisions, he apologizes and tries again. Sunny brings up apology for stop n frisk policy. Talks details of his history with that topic. MB explains and elaborates on his evolution on the policy. [Too much to transcribe, better to hear what he says in 2nd clip].

Abby talks about culture at his company. MB says that an NDA doesn’t prevent to talk about things, but there are particulars that were mutually agreed. MB says sure he told some body jokes over time, wish he hadn’t, but says 20K employees since 1981 most people are fine, a few topics here and there don’t represent majority. MB says as a Jewish President, how would he address anti-Semitism. Talks about campus incidents, but ultimately it comes from the top. As Potus, top of family (parents), people need to call others out and say stop it. Racists are everywhere. Giving a speech in Tulsa this weekend, talks about affluent community, Black Wall Street, burned it to the ground. Talks about average black family vs others. Lots of inequality. MB supports a study for reparations. His first approach is education. Touts more NYC improvements when he was Mayor.

Whoopi manages to bring up Yang (loool). MB talks about social media influence on our culture. Too much to process, comes at you fast. Social media companies should have the same responsibilities as news organizations. MB thinks we should be able to go to a judge and get subpoena to look at data. Whoopi wants the money because of course. MB believes in corporate taxes for the uber companies. Whoopi wants neighborhoods to be shareholders for large companies that prevent the small business owners from realizing the American dream. MB talks taxes and lack of controls and taking info without permission or justification. Abby brings up vaping. MB talks stats on vaping. T45 promised to get rid of flavors then backed off. Whoopi wants the law to be followed, if it’s tobacco, why did this come back (re/vaping vs cigarettes). MB says he took blowback for NYC smoking ban. Age limit can be enforced better. Marketers have stopped selling to younger customers, or stopped selling it at all. Joy brings up T45 taunting MB. MB says he won’t taunt T45 in campaign because it feeds his ego.

The show had been in limbo since last winter when the pair signed up for a Star Wars project, which they have since left for a Netflix deal.

Black Cube spy admits to trailing 91 Hollywood celebrities on behalf of Harvey Weinstein



Harvey Weinstein took extensive measures to keep his accusers quiet -- including hiring a private intelligence firm called Black Cube to spy on over 91 Hollywood celebrities, mainly actresses who accused him of sexual harassment and assault.

Former Israel Defense Forces member Seth Freedman, one of the operatives on that mission, came forward to BBC about his experience working for Weinstein.

Weinstein paid “a seven-figure sum” to Black Cube, which in return “gathered huge amounts of intelligence” for him. Freedman says he "posed as a journalist" and called high-profile people (like actress Rose McGowan) to extract information that he fed back to Weinstein.

In one instance, he recalls getting a 75-minute phone interview with Rose McGowan, leading her to believe it would end up in The Guardian as an exposé. McGowan admitted to Freedman during their chat that she planned to break a settlement she signed with Weinstein to open up in detail about her alleged rape in her memoir, “Brave”. He instead fed all of this information to Weinstein, who began having the actress followed.

The video of the interview can be found here.

The show will air at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT right after another beloved comedy, “Schitt's Creek” and its final season, before moving to 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning April 14 once the latter concludes with its last episode.

Unfortunately, “One Day at a Time” will also axe the Gloria Estefan opening theme song in order to fit a more restrictive 21-minute window for television. A simple title card will take its place.

Filming will begin in Los Angeles next week.

Florence Pugh & Zach Braff Celebrated Her Oscar Nomination With a Kiss and Champagne




Florence Pugh, 24, celebrated her first Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in “Little Women” with her boyfriend, Zach Braff, 44. After her nomination and doing some press interviews, Pugh was photographed with a bottle of champagne while kissing Braff on Monday.

Pugh and Braff have yet to make a public appearance together, however she did address their 20-year age difference last month when a fan criticized the couple on Instagram. In December, the British actress shared a photo of herself posing outside Greenblatt’s Deli & Fine Wines in Los Angeles. Braff commented with a princess emoji, which led to a follower writing, "You’re 44 years old" in response.

Pugh responded, writing, “And yet he got it 👌🏽.”

What Ever Happened to Josh Hartnett?



source

Variety did a nice interview with Josh Hartnett;

- has mostly been doing indie stuff these last years, has a few bigger movies coming out in 2020

- he has two kids with his partner Tamsin Egerton and they live half the year in London

- he did turn down Superman (the Brandon Routh one) and was on a Batman shortlist (the Nolan one)

- took a break to be a stay-at-home dad after Penny Dreadful

- his movie star phase feels like another lifetime to him:
"All those magazine covers and paparazzi and all that sort of stuff was not at all how I lived my life, and not at all who I thought myself to be. So I feel very much myself now, and I took steps to make my life not as crazy after that movie [Pearl Harbor] came out and was successful at it and have remained sort of outside of the fray."
