Fans of Kung Fu buddy cop movies, rejoice - Rush Hour 4 is finally happening!
After many long years of waiting, it finally looks as if they are going to put the old team of Carter and Lee back together.
Jackie Chan confirmed last year that they were in talks with the scriptwriters to get it across the line, but now his co-star Chris Tucker has confirmed that it's ready to go.
Appearing on ESPN's The Plug podcast, Tucker was asked if he and Jackie Chan would ever team up again - a roundabout way of asking if Rush Hour 4 was going to happen.
Tucker replied: "It's happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes. Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don't ever forget it.
The podcast's host Terri Foster-Brasby tweeted the confirmation out to her followers:
The first Rush Hour film came out in 1998, before Rush Hour 2 became the most successful film in the franchise in 2001 before the most recent outing in 2007.
Rush Hour 4 will most likely be directed by Brett Ratner and written by Jeff Nathanson. The pair has been involved in all of the other films, so you'd imagine that they wouldn't want to change a winning formula.
Last year on The Cruz Show, Chan confirmed that it was in the pipeline, but that nothing had been confirmed.
He said: "For the last seven years, we've been turn[ing] down, turn[ing] down the script, but yesterday, we agreed.
"The script, probably at the end of this month, will have a second draft and next year, [we'll] probably start - if Chris Tucker agrees."
If you want to keep up with your Jackie Chan movies, he recently starred in the bizarre, but surprisingly entertaining The Foreigner - a Netflix Original movie.
Essentially, if you've ever wondered what Jackie Chan taking on the IRA with Piers Brosnan (who is playing a weird, alternate universe version of Gerry Adams) looks like, The Foreigner is your chance.
Once you know Michael B. Jordan is a huge fan of anime, it’s hard not to see his Black Panther costume as a nod to Dragon Ball Z. In interviews with Michael B. Jordan, it’s hard to miss that he’s a fan of nerd culture. The actor burst onto the scene in Josh Trank’s low-budget superhero film Chronicle and even re-teamed with the director to become the Human Torch in Fantastic Four. While that latter film received the opposite reaction of the hit indie, that didn’t deter Jordan from continuing to pursue a merger of his two loves.
Black Panther is outperforming other films left and right, quickly climbing up the charts of the MCU and blockbusters in general. And amidst all the success of the film, fans and critics can’t stop talking – and writing – about Erik Killmonger. The character stands in stark contrast to both T’Challa and Nakia when it comes to their views of Wakanda’s place in the world, and Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole’s script paired with Jordan’s acting makes Killmonger one of Marvel’s best villains. And when you consider just how much of geek Jordan is, it makes you wonder about the influence he had on the character.
According to reports, the trio is pitching the new MARTIN series to a number of networks. Right now, NETFLIX looks like it’s in the lead.
Lately, streaming sites have been queuing up to give us reboots of some of our favorite series and movies. Hulu recently announced that it had brought In Living Color to their site. Netflix was responsible for the recent remake of Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It series. The series was acclaimed both by fans and critics alike.
Martin spilled the beans during an interview with HipHollywood:
“It’s surprising that people still love those characters so much. I can’t tell you anything but’s really exciting […] I can’t tell you, but it has been an honor to be Gina for all these years.”
However, some fans of the show are surprised by Tisha Campbell-Martin’s willingness to sign up for the show’s revival. The reason for the demise of the popular series was her turbulent relationship with her co-star Lawrence, who she claimed was a little too handsy.
In 1997, she filed a lawsuit accusing Larence of “repeated and escalating sexual harassment, sexual battery, verbal abuse and related threats.” The case was settled out of court.
It didn’t seem possible. The cast BROKE UP – after Martin was accused of ABUSING the staff, and sexually harassing co-star Tisha Campbell-Martin.
I'm 19 years old, and I have a full-time job that would probably shock your grandma. I'm a cam girl. For those of you who don't know, a cam girl is the digital era's prostitute. The escort of the virtual age. Men (and sometimes women) come to me for companionship, consolation, conversation –– and most of all, sex. In exchange, I broaden my horizons. I get to interact on a very intimate level with people from all over the world. And, of course, I get money. And a pretty good amount of it at that.
But it's not all peaches and cream. It's not like you can take off your shirt and suddenly the financial world is your oyster. Being a cam girl is deceptively hard, and camming really is a full-time job. It's about promoting and marketing your own business, creating a name for yourself, finding that little niche in the grand scheme of things where you fit in –– all the while being the product, the showgirl, the bread and butter. Websites promise you "$10,000 a week from home in just a few hours a day!", which lures thousands of young girls into showing their stuff and being very disappointed with the payout. The truth is, it takes years to build the fan base that will turn over that kind of income. It takes hours upon hours of grueling labour, replying to thousands of messages a day from needy clients who live in a fantasy world where they're your only priority. At the same time, you're maintaining your body, your hair, your face, your image, to stay presentable, fashionable and on top of the trends. There's no time for a sick day if you want to make real money. Even when you're not on camera, you are still working. It doesn't stop. Camming is a 24-hour-a-day job.
A day in my life consists of waking up around 8am. I go straight to the gym, where I work out for about two hours. I come home, shower, and get directly to work. My Skype account gets turned on and I'm monitoring my Twitter account while I put on my face for the day. Hair, makeup, and body maintenance take about 3 hours, between updating social media and replying to clients who just can't seem to wait for me to get online. When that's done, I take about 30 promo photos that can be uploaded during the day to keep my profiles on different sites relevant and fresh. I update my Twitter: "Hey guys, getting ready to sign on –– come join me!
German singer Sophia Vegas is spotted showing off the World’s smallest waist while out in Beverly Hills.
Sophia who had four ribs removed to create the smallest waist is thinking about having another rib removed to make her waist even smaller.
Her waist is just 18.5 inches. That’s tiny! On New Year’s Day, she posted a full body picture of herself with the following caption:
“I wish you all a happy new year 2018. I am grateful for all the fails in my live because each of them was always a lesson and made me stronger. I’m blessed to life a live what I never could imagine, and I’m so grateful for every moment. I hope you all realize your dreams in #2018 #makeachange #believe #visualize #love”
According to local reports, Sophia underwent her multiple surgeries so that she could have a shape like a “Black Instagram model.”
Vegas has already had some success in her career. Back in 2011, she starred as the lead actress of the Dokusoap Die Wollersheims – A terribly weird family, and even participated in the reality show Wild Girls – On High Heels through Africa.
She currently has 140k followers on Instagram alone.
What do you think? Does her tiny waist look good or should she quit while she’s behind and leave the rest of her ribs in tact?
Floyd Mayweather was spotted out in Beverly Hills where he dropped $250,000 on Birkin bags. The sum was a small drop in the bucket for the retired boxer who recently picked up a $100 million purse from his fight against Conor McGregor, which doesn’t include money from the gate, pay-per-view sales, and sponsorships. Floyd predicted he’d earn $300 million from the bout, which would put him in the $1 billion in career earnings club. The only other two athletes included are Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods.
Spending lavishly on ladies is nothing-new for Money Mayweather, but one thing different was the woman accompanying him. Floyd is known for having a harem of beautiful women and the latest was identified as Red Rose La Cubana. She’s a model and featured dancer at Mayweather’s new Las Vegas strip club Girl Collection. Rose has been described as “The Biggest Stripper in America” and has 1 million followers on Instagram.
According to TMZ, Rose and Floyd are “just friends,” at least for now. Mayweather is open about seeing numerous women, although Bad Medina was his last “main” chick. He also came close to marriage with his engagement to Shantel Jackson, but that relationship ended with a major public blowout between the two and she’s since been seriously dating rapper Nelly. Floyd, on the other hand, is enjoying the bachelor lifestyle
Black Panther’ has proved to be a cultural phenomenon—thanks in large part to its strong black women. So why can’t Marvel give perhaps its most popular black superheroine her due?
Maybe Hollywood was never truly ready for Storm until Black Panther. A white wig slapped on Halle Berry and dialogue like, “Do you know what happens to a toad when it’s struck by lightning?” was never going to shake the earth. An attempt to reboot Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse was similarly bankrupt, despite Alexandra Shipp’s likability, as the character barely had any lines. Each attempt to bring arguably Marvel Comics’ most popular female character to the big screen has been one disaster after another.
Sure, we could’ve had an exciting Storm film reminiscent of the fantastic Blade franchise—particularly Blade II, directed by Guillermo del Toro, who brought the same kind of visual flair and depth of storytelling that Marvel has displayed in films like Winter Soldier, Black Panther, and Thor: Ragnarok.
As great as some of the earlier X-Men films could be, looking back on them now, they were woefully inadequate in their treatment of Storm. Bryan Singer’s films never seemed able to explore social commentary beyond the tenuous “being a mutant is like being gay” metaphor he continued to double down on, and do we really believe that Fox was going to hire a black woman to mold Storm as she truly deserved to be? Back in the 2000s? None of the major film franchises, from Marvel to DC to Lucasfilm, have managed to do that now…and it’s 2018. When Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time is still a first, you know that the industry has been ill-equipped to handle a goddess like Storm. God forbid we end up with another iteration of Berry’s horrendous Catwoman film.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would know that the most anticipated movie of the year made it’s US premiere last night to the delight of comic book fans everywhere. Black Panther, heralded as a game changer for Africans in film has a pretty impressive lineup of Hollywood favorites including Chadwick Boseman, Michael, B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker , Andy Serkis and Angela Bassett. Holly-wood big names aside, do you know who was all up and through that film? Caribbean people. From the Bahamas all the way down to Guyana and we are here for every bit of it. Here’s the cast that’s about to fill you with so much Caribbean Pride.
Letitia Wright, 24, plays Shuri, in the movie, is the sister of the King of Wakanda and the ‘Smartest Person in the World.’ She was born in Georgetown, Guyana.
The superhero film’s domestic haul was a jaw-dropping $242 million, miles ahead of original tracking numbers.
Early numbers indicated that Black Panther would make between $100 million and $120 million in its opening weekend. As hype and wild pre-sale ticket numbers grew, though, that humble number got nudged higher and higher—all the way to $170 million a few days before the film finally hit theaters. Now, after the complete four-day weekend, the real numbers are here, and they’re even more astronomical than prognosticators hoped: Black Panther has made about $242 million domestically and $427 million worldwide, shattering box-office records.
The Vibranium-powered movie had the fifth-highest opening for a film ever, a record it hit within its first three days by notching a smooth $201.8 million. It’s the third-highest gross in history for a four-day opening weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. It’s also the highest opening of all time for a film in February, as well as a film released over President’s Day weekend, handily crushing the $152 million record previously set by Deadpool. Black Panther has the second-highest haul for a Sunday, according to Variety, pulling in a cool $60 million, and it’s also etched its way into Marvel history by earning $25.2 million in Thursday night previews, making it the second-highest preview gross in the studio’s history; the film was narrowly beat out by Avengers: Age of Ultron, which earned $27.6 million. Black Panther has the second-highest three-day domestic opening haul for a Marvel film overall, edged out by the first Avengers film, which made $207.4 million.
As some on Twitter have pointed out, Marvel’s latest has also easily outpaced one of DC’s most recent releases. In just four days, Black Panther earned more than Justice League did during its entire domestic run, which was about $228.6 million.
I know other people have pointed it out, but it’s still funny that BLACK PANTHER outgrossed JUSTICE LEAGUE’s entire domestic run in just four days.

Alas, Justice League won’t be the only superhero movie to get walloped by the fine folks of Wakanda. Black Panther has at least a few more weeks to continue its uncontested box-office reign—there’s virtually no blockbuster competition in February. And with word of mouth and reviews being as strong as they are, T’Challa and the gang should expect to see the numbers continue to soar as the weeks go by.
The “Girls Trip” actress announced on Thursday that she will be hosting the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards in Los Angeles on Monday, June 18. Haddish, who made history last November by becoming the first black female stand-up comedian to host “Saturday Night Live,” is making history again as the first black woman to host the award show. The last female host was Amy Schumer in 2015.
Haddish announced the news in a video on Instagram. “It’s gonna be off the chain! Because you know why? I’m hosting!” Haddish says in the video. “And you know what that means ― it’s gonna be hilarious.”
MTV released a statement shortly after Haddish’s announcement, writing that the actress, comedian and author is “quickly establishing herself as one of the most sought-after actresses and comedic talents in television and film.” <br><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="und" dir="ltr"><a href="https://t.co/DGq26Xndee">pic.twitter.com/DGq26Xndee</a></p>— DRAMA CITY HIP HOP (@Dramacityhiphop) <a href="https://twitter.com/Dramacityhiphop/status/967516088786399232?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 24, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Haddish, who many believe should have been an Oscar contender, has been on fire as of late.
After her hilarious acting in “Girls Trip,” she released a New York Times best-seller titled The Last Black Unicorn. She recently made waves as the face of Groupon, appearing in the brand’s 2018 Super Bowl ad. The actress is also starring in the upcoming TBS sitcom “The Last O.G.” alongside Tracy Morgan.
The categories and nominees for the award show will be announced at a later date.
