Netflix + Disney = you never leaving your house again

Posted on: May 24th, 2016 by Candy

Netflixis about to get a whole lot more magical. There’s a whole cadre of additional Disney films coming to the streaming service this September as Netflix becomes the exclusive streaming service for movies from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar.

This announcement comes in the form of Netflix’s latest blog detailing the year’s coming releases. There isn’t any concrete information on which titles are being added later this fall just yet, but it will be comprised of major theatrical releases and more. There’s already a smattering of movies like Hercules, The Emperor’s New Groove and Mulan already available to view, but September should see that expanded considerably.

This announcement is the fruit of an agreement signed into life back in 2012, which made Netflix the exclusive U.S. subscription service for first-run live-action and animated features from Walt Disney. It’s finally time for Netflix subscribers to reap the benefits with a wide breadth of content from the Walt Disney umbrella. Does that mean we could see The Force Awakens coming to Netflix in the near future? We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled just in case.

Taylor Swift probably shouldn’t just shake this one off.

Posted on: May 23rd, 2016 by Candy

Taylor Swiftand her superstar posse are under attack from an Internet troll who’s threatening to kill them … and cops are on the hunt for the guy.

We’ve learned the guy has terrorized Taylor, saying, “I will kill some of you.” He also targeted Gigi Hadid, tweeting, “people gon die they’re gon die die die die!” And Cara Delevingne was targeted … “I will kill your friends and I am excited about it.”

Chrissy Teigen, who’s not part of Taylor’s posse, was also in the lunatic’s crosshairs, with this … “gonna give it one shot, but I probably gonna end up murdering your friends.”

Law enforcement sources tell us they first got the heads up about the cyber threats from director Kyle Newman, whose wife, Jaime King, was also on the receiving end of threats.

Police got a search warrant to comb through Twitter’s records that could lead them to their culprit. We’re told so far cops have not gotten the info they need to close in.

Posted on: May 20th, 2016 by Candy

Despite facing felony charges for possession of a firearm and a controlled substance, Russell is expected to only receive probation on his May 23 court date

Did you like Fight Club?

Posted on: May 19th, 2016 by Candy

This story isn’t about Fight Club – but the author Chuck Palaniuk. He has (several other) another book called “Lullaby” and he wants it to come to the big screen.

Chuck Palahniuk, who has built a devoted cult following around such novels as “Fight Club,” “Choke,” “Haunted” as well as the offbeat travel guide, “Fugitives & Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon,” may see his novel “Lullaby” turned into a movie, thanks to crowdfunding.

A Kickstarter campaign seeking $250,000 has been launched by Josh Leake, a producer, director and co-founder of the Portland Film Festival, and Andy Mingo, a producer and director. Mingo is married to writer Lidia Yuknavitch, who is in a writing group with Palahniuk.

Palahniuk is an executive producer of “Lullaby,” and will co-write the screenplay.

We first got hooked on Chuck’s novels in the late 90′s, like some of you. We’re fans first, and so like you, as directors and producers we want to make sure Lullaby is the film we all want it to be, and not some watered-down too easy commercial yawner.”

Contributors to the Kickstarter campaign get a variety of their own incentives, depending on how much money they put toward the cause. A $5 contribution gets a personalized library checkout card; $30 or more gets your name in the credits; $600 or more gets a customized “Lullaby” starling tattoo; and $2,000 or more lets you be an extra.

As we write this, the project has 224 backers, who have pledged $15,832 toward the $250,000 goal.  Read more here and see the kickstarter link:

The Platoon favourite, who revealed last November he is HIV positive certainly does not have his legal troubles to seek at the moment. 

He is already in the middle of a legal fight with his exes Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller over child support payments, with the duo said to have met in Los Angeles last month to discuss ways to work together.

They decided to take action as the children’s needs are not being met on the around $10,000 they reportedly are being provided monthly, if it is paid at all.

The pair have two children each with 50-year-old actor, Brooke has twin boys Max and Bob, 7, while Denise has daughters Sam, 12, and Lola, 10.

He had been paying $55,000 month to each of his ex-wives but was able to get his child support payments reduced in April as he lost his Two And A Half Men earnings – which Richards claims he did on purpose to avoid paying the higher child support

Gina Casey, a former member of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, formed in 1943, joined the Peaches to throw the first pitch in the game.

Amy Schumer will no longer take pics with fans…

Posted on: May 2nd, 2016 by Candy

This article originally appeared on

Amy Schumer is taking a firm new policy with fans: She won’t be taking any more photos with them – and it’s all thanks, she said, to one particular fan in South Carolina.

As Schumer, 34, explained in a Saturday Instagram post, a man (pictured in the post) had “just run up” to her on the street in Greenville and “scared the s—” out of her. The comedian performed in the city Saturday night.

“Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said ‘No it’s America and we paid for you,’” Schumer wrote in her caption, adding that the man was with his daughter.

“I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid. Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no,” Schumer wrote.

“I will not take [pictures] with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville,” she wrote.

“Greenville makes you feel like mmmmmmm,” she wrote.

Schumer elaborated on her Instagram post on Saturday, writing on Twitter that she still will take photos “with nice people when I choose to if it’s a good time for that.

“But I don’t owe you anything,” she continued. “So don’t take if I say no.”

Schumer also told PEOPLE in a statement that she was grateful for her fans:

“I am grateful to people who like my work and support me but not the ones who think that behavior is ok.”

Later, the comedian apparently unwound with a bit on equine therapy, writing hours later alongside a photo with a horse, “Day turned around with Harley.”

Game of Thrones most downloaded show on HBO

Posted on: April 27th, 2016 by Candy

You know the argument that Game of Thrones fans wouldn’t illegally download the series if HBO would simply make new episodes available online in a timely fashion without a cable subscription?

Yeah. That’s not true.

EW reached out to piracy news blog TorrentFreak to tally the number of downloads of Thrones recent fifth season premiere. The result? The episode, “The Wars to Come,” was downloaded a whopping 13 million times, a new piracy record for the series. Most of those downloads (10 percent) were from within United States, more than any other country (the runners-up were France, Brazil, China, Russia, UK, India, Canada, Australia and Spain). Australia continued to show huge piracy rates, with a full 32 percent of Thrones viewership due to piracy (compared to 8 percent in the U.S.). By one estimate, the piracy resulted in $44 million in lost U.S. revenue for that one episode alone.

In the ramp-up to Thrones returning for season 5, HBO took two big steps to potentially combat piracy. HBO shifted its worldwide distribution network so that 170 countries would debut the show on the same day, plus launched HBO Now—U.S. premium cable’s first stand-alone streaming service that doesn’t require a cable subscription. HBO Now costs $14.99 per month, but HBO offered a 30-day free trial of the service in April that subscribers could cancel at any time—so users could have binged the entire series legally and for free.

The one stumbling block for some viewers is that HBO Now is heavily tied into Apple products—the new streaming service is only available on Apple TV, iPad and iPhones, which is a deal breaker for many non-Apple users.

Thrones is the most pirated TV show in the world, and while HBO didn’t specifically cite illegal downloads of the fantasy drama as its reason for either move, it was obvious to anybody reading coverage of the hit series over the past few years that GoT piracy was a big incentive for HBO to change its business model. Anecdotally, the top two reasons downloaders tend to give on comment boards as to why they pirate Thrones was (1) they live in a country that airs Thrones weeks/months after the U.S. and want to avoid spoilers or (B) they don’t want to buy a full cable subscription to watch one show. But with both those reasons largely off the table, Thrones piracy is still more popular than ever.

The show’s legal viewing, however, is also at a record high: The season 5 premiere generated a record 8 million live viewers on HBO. The network is waiting for seven days of DVR playback to come in next week before releasing a fuller number that includes repeats and On Demand viewing, but that number will almost certainly be a record too.

Season 5 had more problems with piracy than usual. The entire first four episodes of the series leaked onto BitTorrent the weekend of the show’s return after somebody uploaded the DVD screener package that was sent to critics and other approved insiders. HBO has not yet publicly identified the source of the leak. But one estimate says 32 million people illegally downloaded Thrones episodes during the show’s April 12 premiere week.
