Walt Disney World is supposed to be the place where dreams come true. However, for Spectacular Blue Smith of the band Pretty Ricky, it seems that his dreams will no longer be coming true at the most magical place on earth, because the man has been banned for life from the theme park resort following an altercation with a cast member that left the Disney World employee with a concussion. Now, Smith has apparently spoken out about the altercation, and it seems that the incident likely won’t be ending with a ban, as Smith is promising to give his side of the story at some point in the future.

Melinda Coleman, the mother of Audrie and Daisy’s Daisy Coleman, has died. Coleman tragically died by suicide Sunday evening, four months after her daughter took her own life at the age of 23. Melinda Coleman was 58.
Peter Bart and Mike Fleming believe that Legendary likely has some legal legs to stand on. The argument potentially swirls around the idea that after having put up nearly 75% of the production budget on Dune, and a similar percentage of funding on Godzilla Vs. Kong, Legendary could feel that that the long-term viability of these two franchises as theatrical draws could be “tarnished” if they start their life on a streaming service. In Legendary’s eyes, both the Godzilla and King Kong franchises could and should be packing audiences into movie theaters for years to come, while Dune — if done properly — could bolster a six-film franchise.
I think it’s safe to say that Ben Reid accomplished his goal. Innocence has been selected for over twenty film festivals, including Foyle Film Festival, Aesthetica Film Festival and was long-listed for a 2020 BAFTA. The live-action short has won numerous high profile film awards including the Best Short Film at the London Lift-Off Film Festival and the Don Quixote award at the OSCAR qualifying 60th Kraków Film Festival. This has paved the way for star, Tommy Jessop, to become the first-ever actor with Down syndrome to be selected for BAFTA Elevate.

It was not much of a surprise that Run turned out to be such an exciting and well-paced thriller, considering it has a killer performance by Sarah Paulson and is helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Aneesh Chaganty. What was quite surprising is that the Hulu exclusive film set new record for the most watched movie in the digital platform’s history.
I imagine there is now a legion of fans of the domestic drama, in which disabled teen Chloe Sherman (real-life wheelchair user Kiera Allen in a stunning feature film debut) begins to suspect that her mother Diane (Sarah Paulson) has not been so honest with her about pretty much everything in her life, craving even more stories about moms from hell. Thankfully, there are plenty more movies and TV shows alike about crazy moms, psychopathic dads, and other close relatives or trusted friends with a sinister hidden agenda that you can stream or rent right now. However, if that particular theme begins to run thin for you, I have a few other suggestions in mind that at least fall under the same thrilling tone.
This is a pretty big deal for the box office business of Monster Hunter, which was surely hoping that the film would find success in China. Major markets around the globe are still being affected by the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, which means that every ticket sold counts right now, but there is also the consideration that Paul W.S. Anderson movies have expectations of doing well overseas. As an example, the director’s last film, 2016’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, made $312.2 million when all was said and done with its global release, and $159.5 million of that came from China (that’s 51 percent). Not being able to show in those theaters is going to seriously hurt the bottom line.

If you want to help the Middle Earth fan in your life (or yourself, perhaps) avoid a similar fate in the future, pick up a copy of Recipes from the World of Tolkien: Inspired by the Legends, a 176-page cookbook that is loaded with delicious meals and treats split up by time of day. Whether it’s breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner, or supper, this book should have you more than covered. Just don’t forget the potatoes…

It’s never easy for any creator to give up control of their creation, and George Lucas learned that lesson first hand in a massive way back in 2012. It was in October of that year that the deal for Lucasfilm to be sold to the Walt Disney Company was closed, and when that happened the filmmaker made the decision to step away and hand creative control of the Star Wars franchise to a new generation. It surely must have been an incredibly difficult decision, as the Skywalker Saga had been a part of his life for multiple decades, but now he’s revealed why selling to Disney was the right time to step back, and it’s a very good reason: he wanted time to see his soon-to-be-born daughter grow up.
Len Testa, a computer scientist, has been measuring the percentage of Disney World visitors that wear masks since he noticed a patron try to fool security during a visit to Disney Springs. Through his business, Touring Plans, he found that between 94% and 98% visitors wore their masks correctly, based on a count of 10,000 people.
What a lot of people don’t know and now will know is that I rejected that song from the very beginning. While everybody else was accepting it, everything in me was rejecting it because I was not ready to not be afraid. And then this year happened, and over the past probably eight or nine months, basically since this pandemic started for us in the U.S. it has become what it is for everyone else for me because I sat down and looked into it and understood it. I can sing it with everything in me, but when the song was over I used to retract. I don’t know why I do this, but when I perform, I throw everything out there and then when I’m done, I’m so horrified that I did that I retract immediately. Everyone else was being affected by it and I was running away. So this past year has been just a light switch that works and actually has power in it.
