Article inside Charlie Sheen Sued (Again) for Exposing Ex-Girlfriend to HIV

14 people viewing this

| By SM - 13 hours ago


An ex-girlfriend of Charlie Sheen has filed a lawsuit accusing him of exposing her to HIV, and then dissuading her from taking antiretroviral drugs.

Neither Sheen nor the ex-girlfriend are identified by name in the suit, which was filed Thursday in L.A. County Superior Court. However, the defendant — referred to as “confidential male defendant” — is said to have learned he was HIV positive in 2011, and given national TV interviews about his HIV status on Nov. 17, 2015, and June 21, 2016. Sheen learned he was HIV positive in 2011, and he publicly revealed it on “The Today Show” on Nov. 17, 2015. He gave an update on the program on June 21, 2016.

The plaintiff is identified only as Jane Doe, and is described as a “Russian émigré.”

This is the second time that Sheen has been sued for allegedly exposing an ex-girlfriend to the virus. Scottine Ross, his ex-fiance, filed a similar suit in December 2015, alleging physical and emotional abuse in addition to HIV exposure. That suit was referred to arbitration.

According to the new lawsuit, the plaintiff met Sheen in September 2015, and they quickly began a sexual relationship. She says she asked him whether he had any sexually transmitted diseases, and he repeatedly assured her that he was “fine.” She says that at first, they used latex condoms but they did have unprotected oral sex. On Oct. 26, 2015, they had unprotected intercourse for the first time, she alleges.

Afterward, she says that Sheen told her that he was in fact HIV positive, and gave her two pills to prevent transmission. The plaintiff became alarmed and upset, and sought emergency medical treatment the next day. She was told she would have to take antiretroviral medication for several weeks.

A few days later, she and Sheen argued about the exposure, according to the suit. He blamed her for the exposure and told her he was “noble” for telling her about his HIV status at all. He also said he had not previously disclosed his HIV status because it was “none of [her] f—ing business.” He also told her that the drugs she had been prescribed were unnecessary, and told her not to believe “the convenient rumors of the medical community.”

He also made bizarre statements, according to the suit, including that “Apocalypse” had “cleansed” her soul and that he could “see the future,” and she was going to be fine.

“This is more about … not if, but when you do come down with this [HIV], that we’re together and at least we have each other,” the suit quotes him as saying.

In addition, the suit alleges that he made repeated use of the n-word, describing himself as “the dumbest f—ing n—– in the room.” He also referred to other women he had slept with and who were threatening him with legal action over HIV exposure as “f—ing n—–s” who had committed “treason,” which was “punishable by death.”

The new lawsuit explains that the defendant is not named because the plaintiff signed a non-disclosure agreement. Gary Dordick, the plaintiff’s attorney, is seeking to invalidate the agreement on the theory that it was coerced.

Sheen’s attorney, Martin Singer, was unavailable for comment.

Article inside Box Office: 'Transformers 5' Stumbles Thursday With $8M, May Not Clear $60M in U.S. Debut

22 people viewing this

| By SM - 13 hours ago


The summer tentpole is counting on a strong run overseas, where it opened to a rousing $48 million on Friday, the third-best start of all time for a foreign title.

Paramount and Hasbro's Transformers: The Last Knight is off to a troubled start in North America, where it earned $8.1 million on Thursday for a muted two-day total of $23.8 million, the lowest start of any title in the franchise.

Prerelease tracking had suggested Transformers 5 would post a five-day domestic debut in the $70 million-$75 million range, notably behind the $100 million North American launch of the last title, Transformers: Age of Extinction, over the three-day June 27-29 weekend in 2014 and the lowest in the Hasbro toy-based series.

Based on Wednesday and Thursday's performance, however, the new film could have trouble clearing $60 million in its opening.

Instead, The Last Knight — similar to recent high-profile summer tentpole Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales — is counting on sizable returns internationally, where it opened to an impressive $47.9 million in China on Friday, the third-best showing of all time for a foreign movie after Fate of the Furious and Furious 7, which took in north of $60 million.

That's 69 percent ahead of Age of Extinction, which grossed a massive $858.6 million to become the first Transformers movie to top the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office, on its way to resting at $1.1 billion, not accounting for inflation. The domestic portion was $245.4 million, which, again, was the lowest in the film series.

The Last Knight opens in its first 42 foreign territories this weekend, including a slew of other major markets, such as the U.K., Russia, Australia, Germany, Italy, North Korea and Hong Kong. In China, it has amassed more than $15 million in advance ticket sales.

Paramount puts the movie's production budget at $217 million before a major marketing spend. The Transformers series has never been a favorite of critics, with The Last Knight currently sporting a 16 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Audiences gave the film a B+ CinemaScore.

Mark Wahlberg returns to star in the latest pic — he made his franchise debut in Age of Extinction — while Laura Haddock and Anthony Hopkins join the series as an Oxford professor and English lord, respectively. Together, the three characters must race to uncover the secret history of the Transformers before the world is destroyed. Josh Duhamel, who appeared in the first three Transformers movies but sat out Age of Extinction, also stars.

The Last Knight is the only new film opening nationwide this weekend. The specialty box office sees the debut of two high-profile titles in select theaters Friday: Focus Features' The Beguiled, from director Sofia Coppola, and Lionsgate's The Big Sick, helmed by Michael Showalter.

Image inside 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' First Reactions: 'A Total Home Run'

12 people viewing this

| By SM - 16 hours ago


Peter Parker returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in his first solo outing and going by the reactions, Sony was smart to let Marvel produce

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” won’t have any trouble getting a date to the big dance: Early reactions hit the internet on Friday evening, and many in the superhero film press are deeply enmeshed in its charming web.

“#SpiderManHomecoming gets it right. It’s gets it ALL right. It is the greatest, funniest, most exciting Spidey movie. A total home run,” tweeted Cinemablend’s Sean O’Connell after a New York City media screening.


Film critic Mike Ryan from Uproxx added, “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is an absolute, gosh-darned DELIGHT. It’s like Spider-Man meets CAN’T HARDLY WAIT.”


While Sony is distributing “Homecoming,” Marvel Studios produced the film and introduced Peter Parker back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Considering the last two Sony produced “Spider-Man” films underperformed critically, it looks preliminarily like the studio made a wise decision to let Marvel Studios and producer Kevin Feige handle the creative decisions.

“#SpiderManHomecoming is SUCH a good time. Fun, inventive action w/ some of the best humor in a Marvel film yet. Great start for MCU Spidey!” tweeted Fandango’s Erik Davis.


“Spider-Man: Homecoming is a blast. It has an innocence that differentiates it from the other MCU movies but plenty of fun & spectacle too,” tweeted io9’s Germain Lussier.


Not everyone was completely sold, however.

“#SpiderManHomecoming is the third best Spider-Man movie. The cast is great, the tone is affable, the drama is… a little thin, honestly,” tweeted CraveOnline’s William Bibiani.


But Comicbook.com’s Brandon Davis countered, “Spider-Man: Homecoming is endless fun, from the first second to the last. Flawless.”


“Absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED Spider-Man Homecoming. Funny. Filled with surprises. Tons of fun. Going to make insane $ at box office,” tweeted Collider.com’s Steven Weintraub.


The film picks up with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) following the events of “Captain America: Civil War” as the young web-slinger balances his dual identity of a budding superhero while navigating the everyday life of a teenager in high school. Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as Tony Stark and serves as a mentor to Peter, offering his guidance and leadership in an effort to coach the young hero so that he can eventually become an official Avenger just as Peter goes up against his first major nemesis, Adrian Toomes, aka The Vulture (Michael Keaton).

“Homecoming” will skip the backstory of how Parker gets his powers, a story that was highlighted in the previous “Spider-Man” incarnations.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” also stars Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, and Tony Revolori, and hits theaters July 7.

Article inside Full Cast list for SPIDER-MAN: Homecoming leaked (SPOILERS)

3 people viewing this

| By mumbosauce - 23 hours ago


Quote:

With Spider-Man: Homecoming less than two weeks out, Sony Pictures has issued the official cast list, revealing the additions of both Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Connelly (Hulk) to the cast. Paltrow will be reprising her role as Pepper Potts for the first time since 2013's Iron Man 3 while Connelly returns to world of superheroes as a character named "Karen/Suit Lady," which could hint at a possible S.H.I.E.L.D. connection since Spidey has no prominent Karen in his life (unless it's an obscure reference to Karen O'Malley from the Spider-Man: Unlimited animated series).

The cast list also confirms the true identities of several cast members and reveals two more potential Marvel villains in Aaron Davis, a.k.a. the Prowler, played by Donald Glover (Atlanta), and Mac Gargan a.k.a. the Scorpion, played by Michael Mando (Orphan Black). We also have confirmation that there will indeed be two Shockers: the Herman Schultz version, played by Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), and the Jackson Brice iteration, played by Logan Marshall-Green (Devil).

Angourie Rice is playing Betty Brant and Garcelle Beauvais (Flight) is listed as Doris Toomes, likely suggesting she's the Vulture's wife (or ex-wife) and quite possibly, also confirming the identity of another key cast member.

Stan Lee will cameo as a character named Gary, and Chris Evans will cameo as Captain America, although it's uncertain whether we'll see him outside of the disciplinary videos playing at Peter Parker's school.

Article inside Rocko's Modern Life is really coming back!!!!!!!!

3 people viewing this

visit this link http://buzzfeed.com/keely .. ife-is-meta-af


In case you hadn't already heard, Nickelodeon is bringing back the beloved '90s cartoon Rocko's Modern Life for a brand new one-hour TV special, Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, in 2018.

Today Nickelodeon announced that the Rocko's Modern Life special — written and executive produced by the series’ original creator, Joe Murray — will reunite the original voice actors from the main cast.



Returning cast members include Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko, Spunky, Leon), Tom Kenny (Heffer, Chuck, Really Really Big Man), Mr. Lawrence (Filburt Turtle), Charlie Adler (Ed Bighead, Bev Bighead), Linda Wallem (Aunt Gretchen), Jill Talley (Nosey), and Joe Murray (Ralph).


The network also announced the plot of the special, and for a program that's being rebooted in the name of '90s nostalgia, it is extreeeeemely meta.

Static Cling follows the original cast of Rocko's Modern Life after returning from having been lost in outer space since 1996 (the same year the original series ended).

While those plebes Heffer and Filburt are all about modern technology and hip food and blah blah snore, Rocko, the intellectual, is struggling because he's NOSTALGIC FOR THE '90s.



According to the press release, Rocko "whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world."
This is the story of a '90s cartoon character who's been brought back to appeal to our '90s nostalgia, while he, too, struggles with his own '90s nostalgia.



ITS REALLY COMING BACK ONE OF THE GOAT CARTOONS!!!!

Hey Arnold and now Rocko!!!

Image inside Mahershala Ali & Brian Tyree Henry Cast In Spider-Man Animated Movie

3 people viewing this

| By Marccoogs19 - 3 days ago


Sony’s Untilted Animated Spider-Man Movie continues to come together with the addition of two new exciting stars. The film has always remained a peculiar title in Sony’s continuing Spider-Man plans, especially as Tom Holland’s presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow right now. But now with other spin-off, Spidey titles like the Tom Hardy-led Venom film and Gina Prince-Bythewood’s Black & Silver in the works, the Animated Spider-Man movie has emerged as one of the more promising and exciting big screen takes on the iconic Spider-Man lore that’s set to hit theaters over the next couple of years.

And out of the many reasons to be excited about the film, one of the biggest is the fact that it’ll be the first feature-length Spider-Man film to follow the Miles Morales incarnation of the character, instead of Peter Parker. So while Sony is keeping official plot and character details mostly under wraps for the time being, this Animated Spider-Man film is proving itself to be an increasingly interesting comic book adaptation with each new update and casting announcement associated with it.


In case the film’s creative talent wasn’t already exciting enough, The Tracking-Board is reporting today that Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and Bryan Tyree Henry (Atlanta) have officially joined the film’s voice cast. Henry will reportedly play the role of Miles’ detective father, Jefferson Davis, in the film, a role that was originally rumored to be played by Ice Cube earlier this year. Meanwhile, Ali is said to be taking on the larger role of Miles’ uncle, Aaron Davis, who apparently deeply loves his nephew, but continues to work on the wrong side of the law. The film is currently set for a 2018 release date and will be co-directed by Bob Persichetti (The Little Prince) and Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardians).

Ali and Henry join an already impressive cast attached to the Animated Spider-Man film, which includes Dope breakout star, Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, and Liev Schreiber as the film’s lead, mysterious villain. The latter actor has remained understandably tight-lipped about the project ever since he was cast in it several months ago, though, Schreiber did tease that the film will have a “throwback vibe” that some fans may not have been originally expecting.

Both Ali and Henry are two actors coming off of extremely successful career moments in 2016, with Henry receiving widespread critical acclaim for his role as Paper Boi in the Donald Glover-led FX series, Atlanta. And in addition to winning an Oscar for his performance in Moonlight last year, this role also marks the second time that Ali will star in a well-known comic book adaptation, following his memorable performance as the villainous Cottonmouth in Marvel and Netflix’s Luke Cage series. So to say that the cast and creative team behind this Animated Spider-Man film is already stacked, would be an understatement, which certainly isn’t a bad thing as the film continues to gain more and more traction moving forwards.

Image inside Marvel's THE DEFENDERS New Poster

| By SM - 3 days ago

Netflix’s Marvel superheroes are about to join forces… and they don’t look too thrilled about it.
The streaming service has given us a first look at Marvel’s The Defenders — the hotly anticipated comic-book team-up debuting Friday, August 18 — with a stark, black-and-white poster featuring the four heroes: Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones). Oh, and zero smiles between them.

The crime fighters, who each have their own solo Netflix series, come together in The Defenders to “save New York City,” per Netflix. “This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”

The Defenders‘ previously announced supporting cast includes Sigourney Weaver, Scott Glenn, The Matrix alum Carrie-Ann Moss, Elodie Yung (as Elektra) and Daredevil‘s Deborah Ann Woll, reprising her role as Karen Page.

DaOmega_1 reviews "Transformers: The Last Knight"

4 people viewing this

| By DaOmega_1 - 3 days ago


Merlin…. like the actual wizard Merlin is a major plot point in a Transformers movie, which (as a reminder) is about talking robots who turn into cars… What. The. Literal. F*ck. I almost feel like we’re being trolled by the filmmakers. I’d almost be offended by this film’s relentlessly blatant stupidity if it weren’t so f*cking boring.

But, alas… “Transformers: The Last Knight” is boring.

Every Transformer film from Michael Bay has been loud, obnoxious, offensive, racist, sexist, homophobic, dumb, mindless, disastrous, hopelessly desperate, logic-challenged, overlong piles of GARBAGE. Sure, some are more entertaining than others (the first and third ones, for example). But, they are NOT good movies. However bad they may be, one thing is certain.. Never, and I do mean NEVER, have they been boring… until now. That, to me, makes this one the worst of the bunch. It feels more cynical than ever, made with the sole purpose is of wringing out money from our wallets like you would water from a sponge.

The most noteworthy thing about this movie is that it’s insane. You’d find more coherent storytelling watching little kids playing with action figures. I’d dear say the film feels borderline experimental due to how loose/flimsy its narrative is. Nothing makes sense. Scenes are plopped on top of each other seemingly at random like the film is in iTunes shuffle mode. The way they build this post-Transformers world just doesn’t sell. The world, in some scenes, seems very very affected by the events of the previous films, and in other scenes, it’s as if people don’t know Transformers exist. The film feels inconsistent in this way. The world is on high-alert for Transformers… until they’re not.


Throughout the course of the film, it feels like its straining to make all of its moving pieces work. Like Anthony Hopkins showing up to deliver a garbage-truck’s worth of exposition on us, or Optimus Prime pretty much not being in the movie for a vast VAST majority of its runtime DESPITE the fact that he’s featured prominently in the marketing. Like, the f*cking Transformers were around during Medieval times… at the round table with the knights.

Who the f*ck wrote this? Seriously.

I also love that our characters are blatant stand-ins for demographics the film needs to hit. This becomes more evident with one character, a young girl who spouts dialogue about how she’s a girl, and she’s stronger than you think, etc.. It’s so clearly there as an unhidden attempt at getting that “girl power” money that Wonder Woman so successfully got. It feels like most of our side characters are just like that… Apathetic bids to go after target demos.

It feels like Michael Bay hates the Transformers. Because, they aren’t really in the movie that much, even though their name is in the f*cking title of the goddamn thing. Instead, we focus on a bunch of nobodies doing nothing. Y’know… For a Michael Bay film, the action is surprisingly light. The big sustained sequences we’re used to seeing from this franchise isn’t THAT much of a thing in this one. So, if that’s what you’re looking for, prepare to be disappointed. You’d think toning that down would be a good thing. But, no. It allows more room for sh*tty dialogue and time-wasting nonsense.


It feels like there was a major attempt to really tone down the obnoxious bizarre sh*t from the other films to make it more kid friendly (must be why Merlin shows up). So, what you get is something that feels like a TV-edited version of a Transformers movie. These films are already cynical, dumb, and the very worst of capitalistic Hollywood. But, that’s kinda the point, ain’t it? With this film, it’s like a watered down, de-fanged, even more cynical version of what we’re used to seeing from a Transformers movie. It’s so strange seeing such a soullessly corporate franchise get robbed of what little identity it had in the first place.

At a runtime of well over two hours, the film tries the audience’s collective patience. Especially because SO MUCH of this film’s dialogue is exposition, explaining sh*t, dumb jokes, and more exposition. By the end, which is just sound, fury, and pretty colors and very little else, I remembered just being exhausted, and fighting off sleep while trying to endure the film’s plodding never-ending climax. This includes sequel baiting ending even though this was supposed to be the last film.


It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a mainstream blockbuster as bizarre as this one. It’s also been awhile since I’ve seen one so joyless. This movie just isn’t fun. It’s boring. I’m well-aware that these films are critic-proof. I’m well-aware that this franchise is built differently from others, so things like “plot” and “character” are considered “optional”. But, even for hardcore die-hard fans of this series, I can’t see those people coming out of this liking it. I mean, I’m not even a hater of this series, but had I never seen a single Transformers film before with THIS being the first one I saw, I’d be perplexed as to how ANYONE could enjoy these films.

I kinda hate it. “Transformers: The Last Knight” is a blight on cinema… It’s not “crazy” bad like “Revenge of the Fallen”… It’s “apathetic” bad. Which, for me, makes it even worse. Maybe Merlin can get his own spin-off. At this point, even that sounds better than even wasting the brain cells it’d take to remember this movie.

Article inside Ex-Star Wars Directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller Met With DC About 'The Flash'

2 people viewing this

| By SM - 3 days ago


The duo met about the possibility of directing “The Flash” after Rick Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences last year

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller met with DC Films during the production hiatus of the Star Wars “Han Solo” spinoff, insiders exclusively told TheWrap.

The duo met about the possibility of directing “The Flash” after Rick Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences last year, according to multiple individuals familiar with the project. It was unclear whether they were already considering an exit from the “Han Solo” project.

The two said in a statement Tuesday that they were leaving the “Star Wars” spinoff over creative differences.

“Forrest Gump” director Robert Zemeckis is currently the frontrunner to direct the DC Film’s “The Flash,” one of the insiders told TheWrap.

The film, starring Ezra Miller as the titular speedy superhero, would mark a return to the world of sci-fi-infused fantasy for the “Back to the Future” director, known for blending emotional stories with top-notch visual effects.

Lord and Miller originally wrote a treatment for “The Flash” back in 2015, but were never attached to direct the superhero pic about the Scarlet Speedster.

“The Flash” is a superhero whose incredible speed allows him to time travel. The character is going to be a part of Zack Snyder‘s “Justice League.” He debuted in last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Representatives for Lord and Miller declined to comment for this story.

‘The Mummy’ Projected To Lose $95 Million

“The Mummy,” or according to some “Tom Cruise’s The Mummy,” has been having a rough ride at the domestic box office, where it hasn’t yet hit $60 million after two weeks in release. That’s not the kind of figure you want for a movie that’s launching a new franchise (Universal‘s Dark Universe), but internationally, it’s a whole different story. The film marked Cruise’s career-best opening abroad and is on its way to $300 million worldwide. However, will it be enough to put the film in the black? It doesn’t look like it.

Deadline has done some number crunching and based on a reasonable estimate that the film takes home $375 million worldwide once it all wraps up, it’s going to wind up with a net loss of $95 million. Ouch. The simple reason is that “The Mummy” was expensive, costing a total of $345 million when production costs and marketing are all added up. Yeah, we know that math doesn’t add and subtract to $95 million, but you have to remember that the studio only gets a fraction of ticket sales. So, bearing that in mind, “The Mummy” is expected to net $250 million total, and when you run that up against the $345 million cost, and you’re looking at a $95 million difference.

The film’s reportedly break-even number is $450 million, which it’s definitely not going to hit. And while Alex Kurtzman may proclaim he made a movie for audiences, and not for critics, it’s clear that neither group particularly cared for this movie, at least not in the numbers that will make Universal’s accountants happy.

Article inside Sonys Venom Film Reportedly Features Carnage As Villain

Quote:

In a profile of new Sony CEO Tom Rothman that explores the studio’s relationship with Marvel Studios, The Hollywood Reporter casually mentions Carnage as the movie’s primary antagonist, which given the characters’ history, certainly makes sense.

Created by David Michelinie, Erik Larsen and Mark Bagley, Carnage was once Cletus Kasady, a serial killer who shared a prison cell with Eddie Brock, a host to the alien symbiote that transforms into Venom. When Brock refused to bond once again with the alien, which would have allowed Venom to escape, it left behind its offspring, which merged with Kasady.

The symbiote amplified Kasady’s psychotic nature while also imbuing him with an array of abilities akin to Venom’s: enhanced physical strength, shape-shifting, regeneration, immunity to Earthly diseases, etc. In short, Carnage would seem like a perfect foil for Venom.
