Article inside Kim Kardashian May Have Her Uterus Cut Out After Baby No. 2

2 people viewing this

| By Steve - 4 hours ago


Kim Kardashian's current pregnancy may be her last.

In an interview with C Magazine, the multi-talented mama says that in her first pregnancy, she suffered placenta accreta. With placenta accreta, the placenta grows blood vessels into the uterus. Instead of the placenta getting completely expelled along with the baby during the birth, it stays attached to the wall of the uterus. It can lead to severe blood loss and, in some cases, death.

So after Baby South (or whatever they name him) comes into the world, surgeons may remove her uterus.

Kim Kardashian posts naked selfie to silence the haters

"They think I'll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me," she told C Magazine. "I think we're just gonna go day by day, see how overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes."

She also discussed her pregnancy fashion, how she picks projects, and what it was like trying to get pregnant a second time (including going to the doctor's office every morning at 5 a.m. to find out if she was ovulating). Read the whole thing here.

Every day brings us closer to the release of Justin KurzelÂ’s Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. Empire has exclusive posters of the two main characters to sate your thirst in the meantime. As the eponymous warrior who decides to betray his friend and king after hearing a witchÂ’s prophecy, Fassbender looks positively frightening, his calculating eyes camouflaged by blood, dirt, and Scottish warpaint.

Check out the poster below, and head over to Empire for more. Macbeth, which premiered at the Cannes Festival, is out in the U.K. on Oct. 2. The Weinstein Company is expected to release the film in the U.S. in December.

Article inside Ridley Scott Confirms ‘Prometheus 2′ Is His Next Movie

2 people viewing this

| By Steve - 15 hours ago


ItÂ’s been known for a while now that Ridley Scott wants to make a Prometheus 2. The question has been when heÂ’ll do it. HeÂ’s got several projects brewing currently including The Cartel, which he picked up just a few weeks ago. And on top of that there are all the projects heÂ’s producing, like Blade Runner 2 and Alien 5.

But Scott has now confirmed, once and for all, that Prometheus 2 will indeed be his next movie. Read the Ridley Scott Prometheus 2 quote after the jump.

Scott let the Prometheus 2 news slip in a chat with Empire about The Martian. You may recall that for a while, Prometheus 2 was rumored to open in spring 2016. But it eventually emerged that that date was being reserved for The Martian, which then moved up to fall 2015. (The Martian later got pulled up even closer, and is now set to open October 2 of this year.)

According to The Martian star Matt Damon, the release date change was no problem for Scott. “Ridley was done with the movie about two weeks after we shot!” he told the magazine. Scott responded, “I was already on to my next movie! I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is Prometheus 2.”

So far, 20th Century Fox has yet to announce any sort of timeline for Prometheus 2, and Scott didnÂ’t give any details of the sort either. However, recent reports have pegged the Prometheus 2 start date around January 2016. WeÂ’ve also heard Prometheus 2 is whatÂ’s delaying Neill BlomkampÂ’s Alien 5, since Scott, who is producing Alien 5, is insisting Prometheus 2 move first.

The first Prometheus inspired a mixed reaction from fans and critics, but the idea of Scott returning to that world is pretty intriguing nonetheless. Plot details are being kept scarce, but the director has previously said the sequel will pull back from the Xenomorphs, and introduce a new alien instead.

Prometheus 2 doesnÂ’t have a release date, but we can probably expect it out in 2017.

This was flabby, watered down Martin.
But this is one of my top 10 favorite movies all time.
Whenever I see it on TV I gotta watch the whole thing, and it's still entertaining as sh*t.

Just the whole plot- a LA nigga from Florence & Normandie dropped off in the Medieval times- sh*t was bound to be hilarious


Not mention it had one of the finest pieces of lightskin British ass I ever seen

Article inside ‘Mr Robot’ Finale Postponed Because of Similarity to Live TV Killings (SPOILERS)

2 people viewing this

| By xSLIMx - 17 hours ago

Quote:

USA Network has postponed tonight’s scheduled season finale of hacker drama series “Mr. Robot” for a week because the episode includes a scene with similarities to the real-life murders that occurred on live TV this morning in Virginia.

“Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time,” USA said in a statement.

Early today, a reporter and cameraman for WDBJ-TV in Roanoke, Va., were shot and killed while delivering a live broadcast. The suspected killer is a former co-worker of the pair who posted video of the ambush on social media after fleeing the scene.

“Mr. Robot” has emerged as a critical darling for USA this summer. The series revolves around an anti-social IT whiz who is drafted to work for an underground group of hackers focused on rooting out evil and corruption in corporate America. Rami Malek and Christian Slater star.

USA said the decision to postpone was made because the finale “contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia.”

“Mr. Robot” is the first new USA series to have strong pop culture buzz in some time. The postponement is not likely to be too big of a blow to the show’s ratings momentum. It’s not clear if USA had any time-sensitive sponsorship deals tied to the finale.

USA said the finale will air Sept. 2 in the show’s regular 10 p.m. time slot. USA will sub in a rerun of last week’s penultimate episode to fill the void tonight.

Article inside Viola Davis Talks SUICIDE SQUAD; Reveals How Many DC Movies She's Signed On For

3 people viewing this

| By Steve - 17 hours ago


WB/DC made a great decision casting two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis as 'Amanda Waller' in Suicide Squad. Now she's opened up about her experience working with director David Ayer - and revealed just how many DCEU movies she's signed on for...

Suicide Squad has finally wrapped, and star Viola Davis has returned to filming the second season of her hit drama, How To Get Away With Murder. While talking to Deadline about her Emmy-nominated role on the ABC show, she briefly touched on her experience working on the DCEU project - praising the movie's style, tone, characters and, in particular, director David Ayer.

"I’ve been working on the film since April 1st. It sounds like a lot, but I haven’t been working every day. I haven’t done a lot of comic book movies, actually I’ve done none! DC Comics have a tendency to have darker characters. You know, Batman is a darker character, Harley Quinn, the Joker, and what David Ayer has managed to do is humanize them. I think that you see it in the trailer too–just something different about it that makes you lean in."

"What he’s explored is the pathology behind all of these characters, so you just get that extra spin that gives you the flavor and a look which is very different. And at the same time you get all the stuff that you’ve gotten before, which is the action, the special effects, the great makeup. I’m blown away by the movie. Once I saw the trailer, I was like, “Oh, my God. He really is a magician.” So, it’s been a real pleasure working on it with David Ayer."



Additionally in another interview, Davis revealed to the New York Times just how many DCEU films she's signed on for. "This is my first big superhero movie. I signed on for three, so it needed to be a great experience," she admitted. We already know Suicide Squad is one of those movies, but what could the others be? My money is on the two Justice League films - although there is a chance she makes a surprise cameo in one of DC's solo flicks. What do you think?

Suicide Squad hits theatres August 5, 2016.

Article inside Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Reunite With M. Night Shyamalan

3 people viewing this

| By Steve - 17 hours ago


ItÂ’s been a good year so far for M. Night Shyamalan, or at least a much better year than the last few. His TV series Wayward Pines had a solid audience, and his new film The Visit has drawn rave reviews as it has been previewed throughout the summer. Now it looks like the writer/director will do a new project with Jason Blum, who produced The Visit.

And the film will likely star Joaquin Phoenix, who was one of the leads of ShyamalanÂ’s 2002 film Signs, and the 2004 follow-up The Village. What little we know about the new Joaquin Phoenix M. Night Shyamalan project is below.

Deadline has the story. Unfortunately there isnÂ’t much of a story to report, at least as far as the film is concerned. ThereÂ’s no indication about what the filmÂ’s plot might be, and given that Shyamalan tends to work with an air of secrecy weÂ’re not likely to learn much for a couple months, at least. All weÂ’ve got is that the film will probably include some supernatural element.

Joaquin Phoenix is known for being a particularly choosy actor who shies away from big franchise roles, but he also seems to be willing to work with directors who have a strong individual identity. (His last four films have been with James Gray, Spike Jonze, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Woody Allen.) And thatÂ’s good to see; not everyone needs to race to find their own franchise. IÂ’m happy to see Phoenix following his own impulses.

And Phoenix had a good success with Shyamalan and Signs, even if the follow-up The Village wasnÂ’t nearly as well-received by audience, with a total box office take of about half the total for Signs. Still, that two-film working relationship might be enough to attract Phoenix to the project, especially if Shyamalan has created a good working system with Jason Blum.

ThereÂ’s no studio home for the film at this point, but since Blum has a deal with Universal we wouldnÂ’t be surprised to see it end up there. The film is likely to be budgeted more in the range of The Visit, at around $5m, than some of ShyamalanÂ’s other bigger films.

Marc Bienstock will produce with Jason Blum and M. Night Shyamalan, and Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider are on board as exec producers. Production is expected to start in Philadelphia in November, so things are moving along well.

Image inside Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer Are Working On a Movie Together

2 people viewing this

| By Steve - 17 hours ago


Earlier this summer, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer made the whole world jealous by sharing photos of themselves jet-skiing, building human pyramids, and generally living it up with each other. As it turns out, though, they’re not just playing together — they’re also working together on a new project.

According to Lawrence, they’re “almost done” writing the screenplay, and plan to co-star in the as-yet-unnamed movie. Get all the details on the Jennifer Lawrence Amy Schumer project after the jump.

Lawrence announced the new project during a chat with the New York Times:

We play sisters. WeÂ’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. WeÂ’ve got about 100 pages right now.

Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages. And we crack up. I’m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago. We’ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing ‘Trainwreck.’

The actresses met earlier this summer when Lawrence emailed out to Schumer to compliment her on Trainwreck. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting,” she said. “We really hit it off, to say the least.”

Lawrence didn’t divulge any further details on the new movie, but it already sounds like a potential departure for her. Though she got her start on the sitcom The Bill Engvall Show — and though she’s demonstrated a great sense of humor in her press appearances — Lawrence has yet to do a straightforward comedy film. The closest she’s come is dramedies like David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook. The new movie will also be Lawrence’s first screenplay, as far as we know.

Schumer just got her first feature screenplay credit for the aforementioned Trainwreck, though sheÂ’s been writing for her own TV show and others for years. Trainwreck also marked her first lead performance in a movie. The romcom grossed $122 million, making it Judd ApatowÂ’s biggest hit as a director since Knocked Up.

As of yet, we don’t know who might direct this mysterious Jennifer Lawrence Amy Schumer project, or when it might come out. Since the project is still in the very early stages, there’s always the chance it won’t happen at all — though it’s hard to imagine no studio would be interested in making a movie with two of today’s hottest young stars.

Relive Lawrence and SchumerÂ’s magical summer together below:

Article inside ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Will Be a ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Reunion

3 people viewing this

| By Steve - 18 hours ago


Universal may not currently have a Straight Outta Compton sequel in the works, but theyÂ’ve just made plans for a Straight Outta Compton reunion. Jason Mitchell, who played Eazy-E, has just boarded Kong: Skull Island alongside Corey Hawkins, who played Dr. Dre. More details on the Kong Skull Island Jason Mitchell casting after the jump.

THR reports Mitchell is in talks to play an “easygoing pilot” in the Legendary / Universal monster movie. Tom Hiddleston has been set to lead for several months, and Hawkins, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Wilkinson, and Toby Kebbell have all entered negotiations in recent weeks.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer) directs Kong: Skull Island from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, and Dan Gilroy. Jurassic World‘s Derek Connolly was recently brought on board to polish the script. Plot details are being kept vague, but the story follows “a team of explorers venturing into the mysterious, creature-laden isle that is also the home of the king of the apes.”

Straight Outta Compton has been one of this summer’s big success stories, raking in $114 million in less than two weeks and earning glowing critical praise to boot. It’s looking like a launching pad for its young cast of mostly unknowns, including Mitchell — Kong: Skull Island is his first deal since Straight Outta Compton opened.

Prior to Straight Outta Compton, Mitchell had had supporting roles in Broken City and Contraband. HeÂ’s also got two more releases lined up for the not-too-distant future: He recently wrapped Vincent-n-Roxxy with Emile Hirsch and Zoe Kravitz, and is now filming Keanu from Key & Peele masterminds Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

Kong: Skull Island shoots this fall in Hawaii for release on March 10, 2017. LegendaryÂ’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni produce with Mary Parent, and Alex Garcia and Eric McLeod serve as executive producers.

Article inside Rumor: ‘Man of Steel 2′ May Be on “Permanent Hold”

3 people viewing this

| By Steve - 18 hours ago


A new rumor recently popped up saying that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was in talks to take over the Man of Steel franchise from Zack Snyder. But considering the movie isnÂ’t officially on Warner Bros. PicturesÂ’ schedule for their DC Comics cinematic universe, it didnÂ’t sound like it was an immediate concern for the studio.

Now another rumor seems to confirm a lack of urgency to get Man of Steel 2 off the ground as the project is reportedly on “permanent hold.” But what does that even mean?

Den of Geek has this latest rumor on Man of Steel 2 on hold, and while they also echo the story of George Miller being in talks with Warner Bros., they actually say their discussions have been about which forthcoming comic book property for him to take on.

However, Miller wonÂ’t exactly be given free reign, as the studio would need to agree with his vision and scheduling would need to be worked out. So it seems like the studio is in very early talks with Miller about doing another movie for them, and thereÂ’s no guarantee that it will be Man of Steel 2.

As far as the “permanent hold” description is concerned, no one is entirely sure what that means. Are they holding off on another Superman movie until they get the rest of the DC Comics cinematic universe off the ground? Are they maybe wanting to get this rumored Batman trilogy with Ben Affleck in action first? It’s hard to say, but no matter what the situation is, Man of Steel 2 clearly isn’t a priority.

Part of me wonders if Warner Bros. is thinking that making a standalone Superman movie isnÂ’t as easy as making him part of everyone elseÂ’s stories. HeÂ’s been the most difficult comic book character to reboot properly so far, and while it was a solid enough start to kick off a whole plan for DC Comics on the big screen, if they feel like they donÂ’t need more solo Superman adventures anytime soon, then why rush it?

At the same time, if George Miller really does end up directing Man of Steel 2, then I would want to see that movie as soon as possible. Then again, whatever DC Comics property ends up getting Miller behind the camera would have my full attention for sure. ItÂ’s still early days for Miller and Warner Bros. continuing their relationship, and hopefully the director will make a Mad Max: Fury Road sequel part of his deal at the studio too.

Is there a different DC Comics property youÂ’d like George Miller to direct?

Kurt Sutter Developing ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Spinoff

2 people viewing this

| By Scallinno - 1 day ago

That long-teased “Sons of Anarchy” spinoff is actually happening.

Entertainment Weekly reports that although itÂ’s still early in the process, creator Kurt Sutter is indeed developing an FX series focusing on the Oakland-based Mayans Motorcycle Club, whose often-rocky relationship with SAMCRO played out over seven seasons of the hit drama.

The Hollywood Reporter published the same news at the same time, which means we should probably consider it at least a somewhat official announcement.

Few details are known, but Sutter, whose medieval drama “The Bastard Executioner” debuts next month on FX, will serve as executive producer. The search is reportedly under way for a showrunner.

Marvel's luke cage: Rumors on villain, love interest, and plot

3 people viewing this

| By CadillacVyse - 1 day ago

It appears MarvelÂ’s Luke Cage villain, love interest, and some plot details may have been revealed.

Heroic Hollywood reports the Netflix series will feature Willis Stryker, aka Diamondback, as Luke CageÂ’s (Mike Colter) primary villain. Diamondback was reportedly the villain in a 2004 Luke Cage movie script.




Diamondback and Luke Cage were friends who were attracted to the same woman, Reva Connors, who is also the rumored love interest in the Netflix series. Angry that he did not win Reva Connors affections, Diamondback framed Luke Cage for a crime and he was sent to prison, where he would eventually gain his superpowers and escape.

A rumored plot synopsis, that could change, has also been revealed and it appears to stick to Luke CageÂ’s Marvel Comics story.

SPOILERS ahead ...

“Luke Cage is a former gang member who is framed for a crime. In prison, he volunteers for a medical experiment that goes awry, giving him super strength and bulletproof skin. Using his newfound powers, Cage escapes and becomes a hero for hire. His archenemy is Willy Stryker, a former childhood friend from Harlem. The two committed petty crimes together, and both fell for the same woman, Reva Connors, which led to their eventual falling out. It was Stryker who framed Cage for a drug deal that sent him to prison.”

Recently, State of AffairsÂ’ Alfre Woodard was cast as a prominent politician rumored to be Marvel villain Black Mariah.

Luke Cage will debut in Marvel's Jessica Jones before spinning off into his own series later.

Article inside ‘War of the Planet of the Apes’ Casts Gabriel Chavarria as Human Lead

2 people viewing this

| By Steve - 2 days ago


FoxÂ’s Planet of the Apes prequel series is really all about the apes, but said apes still need some humans to butt heads with. And theyÂ’ve just found one for the upcoming War of the Planet of the Apes.

East Los High actor Gabriel Chavarria has just been cast in the film, which brings back Dawn of the Planet of the Apes helmer Matt Reeves. More on the War of the Planet of the Apes Gabriel Chavarria casting after the jump.

Chavarria will play one of just two human leads in War of the Planet of the Apes. Deadline likens his role to James FrancoÂ’s in 2011Â’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. More specific character details have not been given. Ape Caesar (Andy Serkis) is expected to return for the sequel, but which, if any, of the other apes from previous films will join him.

The young actor is best known as the lead of Hulu’s original teen drama East Los High. On the feature side, Chavarria recently wrapped Low Riders, in which he plays a teen who gets caught up in SoCal’s low rider culture. The project reunites him with Demián Bichir, with whom he worked in A Better Life. Chavarria’s other credits include Freedom Riders, Teacher of the Year, and guest spots on Southland, Prime Suspect, and Aquarius.

While the plotline for War of the Planet of the Apes is being kept under wraps, Reeves has previously spoken in broad terms about where the story is going next:

As this story continues, we know that war is not avoided by the end of DAWN. That is going to take us into the world of what he is grappling with. Where he is going to be thrust into circumstances that he never, ever wanted to deal with, and was hoping he could avoid. And now he is right in the middle of it. The things that happen in that story test him in huge ways, in the ways in which his relationship with Koba haunts him deeply. ItÂ’s going to be an epic story. I think youÂ’ve probably read that I sort of described it where in the first film was very much about his rise from humble beginnings to being a revolutionary. The second movie was about having to rise to the challenge of being a great leader in the most difficult of times. This is going to be the story that is going to cement his status as a seminal figure in ape history, and sort of leads to an almost biblical status. He is going to become like a mythic ape figure, like Moses.

Which sounds all well and good for Caesar, but probably not for ChavarriaÂ’s character. War of the Planet of the Apes starts shooting in Vancouver this October for release on July 14, 2017.
