    Feb 25, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider’s beef has involved the former’s daughter Gia Giudice, but the latter appears to have a bigger heart when it comes to this matter. In a new episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” which aired on Wednesday, February 24, the ladies headed to Lake George but Jackie skipped the outing due to the drama.
    During the cast’s trip Teresa told the other Housewives why she was so upset with Jackie, adding that Gia told her to apologize to Jackie. Teresa couldn’t understand why her daughter suggested that considering the fact that Jackie used an analogy about Gia doing coke to get her point across during their argument.
    In flashback footage, Gia told her mom, “You’re upset because she said something about me. She’s upset because you said something about her marriage. Not for nothing.” Gia referred to Teresa going around saying that Jackie’s husband was cheating on her.

    “If you went about it in a sh***y way that upset her, then you should apologize because I’m sure you weren’t happy when cheating rumors were going on about you and dad. If you upset her, say sorry,” Gia added.
    Prior to this, Gia reacted to her being inserted in the feud between Teresa and Jackie, who got into a fight in the explosive season 11 premiere of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”. “Gia is a wonderful, smart, strong and beautiful human being and what was done to her tonight was wrong on so many levels,” Appian Entertainment’s Karianne Fischbach, her mom’s business manager, wrote on Wednesday, February 17.
    “For a grown a** ‘I’m so so smart I’m lawyer’ woman to bring Gia’s name into an argument & place an accusation with such a weighted consequence is inconceivable. I cannot fathom what would [possess] someone to create a false narrative that could have severe consequences for the innocent party involved, a 19-year-old at the time who was in no way involved in anything. what the cast members choose to do to each other is the nature of the reality TV beast, this was to [SIC] far,” the post continued to read.
    Concluding the post, Karianne wrote, “I hope apologies are made & I hope family sticks together on this one. I’d have a hard time support friend who did that to my niece, #justsayin.”

    'Halo' TV Series Heading to Paramount+ From Showtime

    Showtime

    Produced by Showtime in partnership with 343 Industries and Amblin Television, the upcoming TV series, which is based on megahit Xbox game franchise, eyes a premiere date sometime in the first quarter of 2022.

    Feb 25, 2021
    AceShowbiz – “Halo” TV series has found a new home. It has been revealed that the long-anticipated series, which is based on the megahit Xbox game franchise, is switching from Showtime to Paramount+ as it eyes a premiere date sometime in the first quarter of 2022. Deadline is the first to report.
    Produced by Showtime in partnership with 343 Industries and Amblin Television, the upcoming TV series will be set in the universe that first came to be in 2001, bringing an epic 26th century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Starring Pablo Schreiber, the TV adaptation will deeply explore personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.
    “We were on the hunt for signature shows beyond the ‘Star Trek’ franchise on CBS All Access and were thinking, what could be a defining series for Paramount+,” David Nevins, Chief Creative Officer and Chairman for CBS, and CEO of Showtime Networks said. ” ‘Halo’ always fit the bill but seeing it, we felt it would work.”

    Nevins added, “It delivers the visceral excitement of playing the game, along with a much deeper emotional experience around the Spartans, human beings who got their humanity chemically and genetically altered. The story is about reclaiming what makes them human, and therefore it’s a very powerful story.”
    Executive producing the show for Amblin Television are Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey. They are joined by Steven Kane, director Otto Bathurst and Toby Leslie for One Big Picture with Kyle Killen and Scott Pennington producing for Chapter Eleven. As for Kiki Wolfkill, Frank O’Connor and Bonnie Ross, they serve as executive producers for 343 Industries.
    Previous reports claimed that “Halo” filmed 55%-60% of its first season before COVID-19 pandemic forced the production team to shut down the filming last March. As if the year-long delay wasn’t bad enough, the first season will have its episode count shortened by one so fans will only have 9 episodes.
    It was based on a game that was first announced for Mac. Its original developer Bungie was then acquired by Microsoft in 2000 prior to the launch of the original Xbox console that became a huge hit, grossing more than $5 billion in total.

    'Spider-Man 3' Newly-Unveiled Title Leaves Fans in Disbelief

    Marvel Studios

    Many refuse to believe that the title announced by Marvel is real, after Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon trolled fans with several hilarious fake titles.

    Feb 25, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Has Marvel finally given away the title of the third Spider-Man movie? Through a new sneak peek released by Sony Pictures Entertainment, the studio has announced that the upcoming film is called “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, but many seem to doubt the truth of it.
    After teasing fans with fake hilarious titles of “Spider-Man 3”, Marvel unleashed a video on Wednesday, February 24 in which Tom Holland, Zendaya Coleman and Jacob Batalon complain about being fooled by director Jon Watts about the previous titles they shared.
    The trio then walk past a white board on which the crew appear to write all possible subtitles for the movie, which all include the word “home.” While the likes of “Can’t Find Home”, “Stay at Home” and “Work From Home” are crossed, “No Way Home” appears to be the chosen one and re-written in the middle of the board.
    In the caption of the video posted on YouTube and Instagram, it is claimed, “This, we can confirm. #SpiderManNoWayHome only in movie theaters this Christmas.”

    Still, considering the way they unveiled the title and the previous fake titles, fans think this could also be a joke. “I FEEL LIKE YALL LYING,” one fan commented below the video with loudly crying face emojis. “i have trust issues now,” another similarly shared. A third one wondered, “is this still a joke i’m unsure.” Someone else enthused, “I dont know what to believe anymore.”
    If this is any assurance, the movie’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts have made some adjustment, with “Spider-Man: No Way Home” now being written on the profile. IMBD also lists the movie with its newly-unveiled title.
    While many were focused on the title, some other fans noticed a possible “WandaVision” reference in the sneak peek. The white board has key diagrams, including multiple hexagons, which led many to believe that it’s a reference to Wanda’s (Elizabeth Olsen) “Hex bubble.” “Hex bubble” itself is the sitcom-based reality she’s created in “WandaVision”.
    “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is slated to open in theaters across the nation on December 21.

    Marvel Studios/Disney+

    The streaming service announced that Marvel Studios’ “Loki” is set to arrive on June 11. As for “Star Wars: The Bad Batch”, it will first greet fans on May 4.

    Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as the trickster god, who seemingly is somehow still alive, on the series. On the new series, fans will see the God of Mischief stepping out of brother Thor’s (played by Chris Hemsworth in Marvel movies) shadow. The show is set after the events of “Avengers: Endgame”.

    Sacha Baron Cohen Rules Out Third 'Borat' Movie Because It's 'Too Dangerous'

    Amazon Studios

    The ‘Trial of the Chicago 7’ actor has no plan to make a follow-up to ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ because filming the prank scenes has become ‘too dangerous.’

    Feb 25, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Sacha Baron Cohen has ruled out the possibility of reprising his role as Borat for a third film, insisting he’s done with “dangerous” disguise movies.
    The comedian debuted his Kazakhstani alter-ego in “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” in 2006 before releasing the sequel “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” last year (20). However, there won’t be another follow-up film in the franchise, as he told Entertainment Tonight that shooting the movies has become “too dangerous.”

    “For Borat, there were a couple of times I had to put on a bulletproof vest to go and shoot a scene, and you don’t want to do that too many times in your life,” he explained. “I was pretty lucky to get out this time, so no, I’m not doing it again. I’m going to stay with the scripted stuff.”
    Cohen’s “Trial of the Chicago 7” co-star Eddie Redmayne then chimed in to ask how he managed to sleep before shooting such a dangerous scene – such as when Borat attended a far-right, anti-lockdown rally – to which the actor replied that he “doesn’t.”
    “The night before something like that – that rally – you’re trying to go through everything that can go wrong,” he said. “In a normal scene like what we’re doing, we’re trying to make sure, ‘How do I make sure my performance is real? Have I done my research? How do I make sure the accent’s perfect?’ In this one you’re going, ‘OK, if a bunch of guys with guns come from that side of the stage, have I got a way to get out? What happens if someone shoots me? What if a bunch of people start shooting me?’ ”

    Charlize Theron Keen to Make Lesbian 'Die Hard' Movie

    WENN

    The ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ actress says she would jump at the chance of revamping the classic Bruce Willis action movie by playing a lesbian lead character.

    Feb 25, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Charlize Theron wants to give “Die Hard” a femme fatale twist.
    The actress, who has proved herself as an action star in films like “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Old Guard”, is up for revamping the Bruce Willis classic with her as a lesbian lead.
    She made the pitch in response to one fan who tweeted, “Lesbian Christmas rom coms are all well and good but what I REALLY want is a Die Hard where Charlize Theron goes on a rampage to save her wife.”
    Theron retweeted the note and added, “Where do I sign?”
    She has referred to the Twitter exchange in a new Vanity Fair interview, stating, “It’s a great idea. That’s why I replied on Twitter, because I just thought it was kind of brilliant. I was like, ‘This person needs to start pitching. That’s a great idea’, and the fact it would be two women, I was like, ‘Yeah, sign me on.’ ”

    During the magazine interview, the actress also reflected on the events of the past year. She’s hopeful the “pain and suffering” of 2020 would help people realise that “we can’t keep going on this way.”
    Asked what has made her the angriest and what gave her hope from the past year, she replied, “It’s hard to try to quantify what, amongst the horrible events that we’ve had in this last year, are the worst.”
    “They are all pretty f**king sh**ty. Dealing with a virus and the amount of human loss that we’ve had – that’s pretty f**king s**tty. The pain and the suffering that I have seen my friends of colour go through during this period… I mean, I’m hoping it’s an awakening.”
    And referring to the riots at the Capitol in January, Charlize commented that it was “all pretty f**king sad.”
    “The only thing that makes me feel like I can think of the glass as half full, instead of half empty, is that I’m hoping that out of a lot of this really deep, deep, deep pain and suffering, we will come to realise that we can’t keep going this way,” she sighed.

    The ‘Selma’ director and the ‘Watchmen’ actress suggest the fact that the Golden Globe organizers have no black members has been widely known for a long time.

    Feb 25, 2021

    Following an investigation by the Los Angeles Times into the make-up of the group – who nominate and select the winners of the annual Golden Globe awards – the HFPA told the newspaper that the report is true, but it’s an issue they’re “committed to addressing.” They gave no indication as to how they would be addressing their lack of diversity.

As in, people are acting like this isn’t already widely known? For YEARS?”
    Meanwhile, Regina King – whose movie “One Night In Miami…” has seen her nominated for the Best Director gong at this year’s Globes – responded to DuVernay’s tweet with a picture of rapper Drake pointing into the camera with a smile on his face. DuVernay then replied using a GIF featuring the text “those are the facts.”
    The upcoming Golden Globe Awards will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
    Herman J. Mankiewicz biopic “Mank”, directed by David Fincher and fronted by Gary Oldman, led the movie nominations with six nods. Netflix’s hit royal drama series “The Crown” dominated the TV categories with a total of six mentions as well.
