Welcome back, Buble!!!

Michael Bublé gets emotional at first concert since son’s cancer diagnosis

Michael Bublé was moved to tears when he made a spectacular return to the stage in London last night after his son beat cancer.

The “Home” singer impressed crowds with a comeback performance at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time in Hyde Park – two years after his four-year-old son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer.

An emotional Michael, 42, opened up to the crowd as he admitted being afraid to sing again ahead of long-awaited return to the stage.

But first he joked with fans who had just suffered a torrential downpour in Hyde Park, saying: “This is exactly how it was in my mind. I s–t you not.”

Before adding: It’s been two years since I’ve been on stage, and like any human of course I worry that whatever I had at one point might have gone.

“But after two songs, I’m even better than before.”

Michael later paid tribute to his supporters for sticking by him.

He said: “There are no words for how much love, affection, gratitude, that I have in my heart on behalf of myself, my family, for your love, for your prayers, for your support.

“I want to thank you not only for tonight, but for every night, for everything you’ve done for me. Each one of you has made such a difference in my life.”

He even name-dropped British reality show “Love Island,” telling the crowd: “This isn’t a concert, this is Love Island…. and just like Love Island, incredibly sophisticated people are going to come together to connect, to meet…. and maybe do it in a swimming pool.”

Michael sang hits some of his greatest hits including “Feeling Good,” “Just Haven’t Met You Yet” and “Home” in front of his adoring fans – and even teased some music from his upcoming album.

The singer had earlier been supported by former British realty TV star Megan McKenna and the legendary Van Morrison who he said had been a huge part of his “romance with music”.

Bublé and his actress wife Luisana Lopilato have cancelled all work commitments since 2016 when their son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer.

But last night the little boy shared a sweet moment with his dad from the crowd when Michael revealed he forces him to watch The Greatest Showman “over and over again” at home.

Teasing the audience by starting to sing “this is the greatest…”, Michael handed the mic over to his son who beamed as he ended the lyric in front of his proud dad.

Since Noah’s diagnosis, Michael has shunned the limelight and posted only two updates on Facebook about his son’s condition – said to be improving after chemotherapy in the US.

The singer, also dad to one-year-old Elias, previously spoke about the family’s turmoil as he was honoured with a performing arts award in Ottawa.

He appeared emotional as he said: “My entire life has been inspired by how my family has made me feel.

“My wife, my children, my parents my sisters, my manager Bruce Allen, who are all here tonight.

“There are no words to describe how I feel about you.”

He recently confirmed his wife is expecting their third child and she’s having a girl.

The cheeky star beamed as he told an audience: “Oops, you did it again! My wife and I are pregnant with our number three!”

The 30-year-old Argentine model Luisana, who wed 42-year-old Michael in 2011, is due to give birth next month.

Whether it’s bad or even awful, I still want to see SKYSCRAPER as I love disaster/action films…and anything co-starring Neve Campbell!!

Hotel Transylvania 3 towers over Skyscraper at the box office

Adam Sandler’s animated Dracula has upset action hero Dwayne Johnson at the box office this weekend.

The Sony release Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is on track to debut with about $44.1 million in ticket sales in the U.S. and Canada, topping the chart while outpacing Johnson and Universal’s disaster movie Skyscraper, which will open with an estimated $25.5 million.

For Hotel Transylvania 3, its opening is in line with industry projections, but Skyscraper is coming in well below expectations, which were in the $30 million to $40 million range heading into the weekend. The latter film, which reportedly cost about $125 million to make, will arrive in third place, behind Disney and Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, with an estimated $28.8 million.

Hotel Transylvania 3’s debut is also on par with its two predecessors, which opened to $42.5 million in 2012 and $48.5 million in 2015. Together, the first two Hotel Transylvania movies grossed more than $800 million at the worldwide box office. Hotel Transylvania 3 will also collect about $54.8 million from overseas markets this weekend.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky and featuring the voices of Sandler, Andy Samberg, and Selena Gomez, Hotel Transylvania 3 follows a family of monsters as they embark on a luxury cruise. Critics’ reviews were mixed to positive, and moviegoers gave it an A-minus CinemaScore.

Skyscraper, meanwhile, is looking like a rare stumble for Johnson, one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood lately. The film will have to perform well overseas to be considered a hit, including in China, where it opens next week and Johnson is a big draw. Through Sunday, Skyscraper will have earned about $40.4 million in foreign ticket sales.

Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence) directed the movie, which stars Johnson as a security expert and military veteran who must rescue his family from a gleaming Hong Kong tower that’s been set on fire by terrorists. Reviews were mixed, and moviegoers gave it a B-plus CinemaScore.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Disney and Pixar’s animated superhero sequel Incredibles 2, with about $16.2 million, and Universal’s dinosaur thriller Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, with about $15.5 million.

In specialty action, A24 and Bo Burnham’s coming-of-age dramedy Eighth Grade is arriving in four theaters with an estimated $252,284, which works out to an impressive per-theater average of $63,071. Also bowing in four theaters is Gus Van Sant and Amazon Studios’ offbeat biopic Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, with an estimated $83,120 ($20,780 per theater).

According to ComScore, overall box office is up 8.4 percent year-to-date. Check out the July 13-15 figures below.

1. Hotel Transylvania 3 — $44.1 million
2. Ant-Man and the Wasp — $28.8 million
3. Skyscraper — $25.5 million
4. Incredibles 2 — $16.2 million

Don’t know if Rick will do it or not, but it would be awesome, awesome, awesome!!!

Peyton Reed Wanted Rick Moranis For Ant-Man, Still Wants Him For Ant-Man 3

Ant-Man and the Wasp is off to a great start at the box office and the debut of the sequel has many people looking back at the underrated original movie. Director Peyton Reed, who helmed both installments, recently revealed that he wanted to get a very special cameo in the original Ant-Man. Since the movie was about characters who shrink to the size of insects, he thought it would be great to get Honey, I Shrunk the Kids star Rick Moranis in the film in some way. Unfortunately, since Moranis had pretty much retired from acting at the time, it ended up being impossible. According to Reed…

“We actually at one point attempted to get a Rick Moranis cameo in the first Ant-Man. Still, during the period, I think, where he wasn’t doing so much acting. I think he’s now going to be on the SCTV Scorcese directed thing which I’m super psyched about. But always still an unchecked box for me.”

The reveal of the potential Rick Moranis cameo came during a sit down with Screen Junikies where Reed reviewed the Honest Trailer of the first Ant-Man. The trailer calls the film “the best micro movie since Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” a joke which led to Reed revealing that he had seen the connection between the films as well, and it made him want to get Moranis to appear.

Rick Moranis has been basically retired for quite some time. His last physical appearance in a movie was in 1997’s direct-to-video sequel Honey We Shrunk Ourselves. After that, Moranis continued to do voice work for projects like Disney’s Brother Bear, where he voiced a moose alongside Dave Thomas that was a takeoff on their famous characters of Bob and Doug McKenzie from SCTV. However, since 2007, Moranis vanished from the screen.

Recently though, it seems that Moranis has decided to come out of retirement, at least a little. He appeared just a couple months ago in an episode of The Goldbergs as his Spaceballs character Dark Helmet. And as Peyton Reed referenced here, he will be part of an SCTV reunion special for Netflix being directed by Martin Scorcese. It makes one wonder if there might be potential for a Moranis cameo in a future Ant-Man movie. When the idea was suggested to Reed that the actor could appear in Ant-Man 3, it seemed the director already had an idea who he could play…

“There you go. Scott Lang’s Dad?”

When franchises get rebooted, we often see cameos from the actors who played key roles the first time around. While there isn’t an actual connection between Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and Ant-Man, at least not from a plot standpoint, it would still be great to see the thematic connection referenced with a future cameo.

Cool. Very cool!!

Star Wars: Episode IX Is Bringing Back Billy Dee Williams As Lando Calrissian

Lando Calrissian has been a fan favorite character ever since he was first introduced in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and that legacy has continued through the character’s many appearances over the years. Most recently we saw him portrayed by Donald Glover in Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, but now new reports say that Billy Dee Williams will be back to reprise the role in the untitled Star Wars: Episode IX.

Rumors of Billy Dee Williams’ potential return have been floating around for months now, but sources are now telling The Hollywood Reporter that Lando Calrissian will indeed be back in action for J.J. Abrams’ next Star Wars movie. The blockbuster is going to be going into production later this summer, and it seems that its getting its pieces in order. It was recently reported that Keri Russell has signed on to the film in a mysterious role (creating a Felicity/Mission: Impossible III reunion with Abrams), and now Williams appears to be the second big new addition.

When you consider how the most recently trilogy of Star Wars movies has operated to this point, the inclusion of Lando Calrissian in the third chapter is an interesting move. When you look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi side-by-side, you start to see what the filmmakers had in mind for the structure: have each movie shine a spotlight on a protagonist from the original movies and conclude their story in a meaningful way. The Force Awakens is a goodbye to Han Solo, The Last Jedi is a goodbye to Luke Skywalker… and Episode IX presumably would have been a goodbye to General nee Princess Leia. Sadly all those plans had to change with the untimely passing of Carrie Fisher, so this situation makes one wonder if Lando might be getting the same kind of legacy treatment in her place (while presumably honoring Leia in a different way).

While there are many Lando Calrissian stories that are now non-canon (a.k.a. have the designation “Star Wars Legends”), the character has been a key part of the universe for years. In addition to being an important character in both The Empire Strikes Back and The Return Of The Jedi, he has also had his own Marvel Comics miniseries, appeared on the beloved animated series Star Wars Rebels, and is considered to be the best part of the aforementioned Solo: A Star Wars Story (with plenty of due credit going to Donald Glover). Thanks to the secrecy surrounding the Star Wars franchise we have no idea what Lando will be up to when we catch up with him in Episode IX, but at the very, very least we expect a lot more space capes.

As mentioned, Star Wars: Episode IX will be going into production in a few weeks time, which means that we should be hearing more reports about the pre-production process very soon. Stay tuned for more updates, and take all the time you can to prepare for the blockbuster’s December 20, 2019 launch.

May he Rest In Peace.

Actor Tab Hunter, star of ’Damn Yankees!’ movie, dead at 86

Tab Hunter, the blond actor and singer who was a heartthrob for millions of teenagers in the 1950s with such films as “Battle Cry” and “Damn Yankees!” and received new attention decades later when he revealed that he was gay, has died. He was 86.

Producer and spouse Allan Glaser said Hunter died Sunday of a blood clot in his leg that caused cardiac arrest. Glaser called the death “sudden and unexpected.”

Hunter was a star for several years. In addition to his hit movies, his recording of “Young Love” topped the Billboard pop chart in 1957.

But in his 2005 memoir, “Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star,” Hunter recounted the stresses of being a love object to millions of young women when he was, in reality, a gay man.

“I believed, wholeheartedly — still do — that a person’s happiness depends on being true to themselves,” he wrote. “The dilemma, of course, that was being true to myself — and I’m talking sexually now — was impossible in 1953.”
Among those stars honouring Hunter on Monday included Harvey Fierstein, who called Hunter a “gay icon” and a “true gentleman” on Twitter, adding, “We shared some good laughs back in the 80’s. I was always fond of this dear man.”

Zachary Quinto on Instagram also cheered Hunter’s “vital and generous nature” and called him a “pioneer of self-acceptance” who moved through the world “with authenticity as his guide.” GLAAD tweeted “Our hearts are with Tab’s loved ones.”

Born Arthur Andrew Kelm, his screen tab (slang for “name” at the time) was fabricated by Henry Willson, the same talent agent who came up with the names Rock Hudson and Rory Calhoun.

The legend goes that Willson said to the young man: “We’ve got to find something to tab you with. Do you have any hobbies?” His client answered, “I ride horses. Hunters.” Agent: “That’s it! We’ll call you Tab Hunter.”

With no dramatic training, Hunter was cast in a minor role in the 1950 drama, “The Lawless.” The fuss over the young actor began two years later when he appeared bare-chested opposite Linda Darnell in the British-made “Island of Desire.” Soon his handsome face and muscular build appeared on magazine covers. Warner Bros., alert to the increasingly important youth market, signed him to a contract.

Hunter made a flurry of movies in the latter half of the 1950s, aimed at capitalizing on his popularity with young girls. The films included such war dramas as “Battle Cry” (with Van Heflin) and “Lafayette Escadrille” (Clint Eastwood in a small role). He made the Westerns “The Burning Hills” (Natalie Wood) and “They Came to Cordura” (Gary Cooper, Rita Hayworth). And he made romantic comedies like “The Pleasure of His Company” (Fred Astaire, Debbie Reynolds.)

A highlight was the 1958 “Damn Yankees!,” an adaptation of the hit Broadway musical with Gwen Verdon and Ray Walston in their Tony-winning New York roles and the original director, George Abbott, sharing direction with Stanley Donen.

Besides the movies, he displayed his athletic skills — he had been a figure skater as well as horseman — in a TV special, “Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates.”

As with so many pop idols, his fans grew up and a new generation sought other favourites. His slide followed the classic pattern: to a television series (“The Tab Hunter Show,” on NBC, 1960-62); European films (“The Golden Arrow”) and cheap kid flicks (“Ride the Wild Surf.”) In his memoir, he took pains to note that “Ride the Wild Surf” was his only beach-party movie; his “Operation Bikini,” despite its title, was “yet another war movie.”

Over the years, he also played small roles in “The Loved One,” ”The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean“ and ”Grease 2.“

In the 1980s, he won new fans by appearing in cult movies with Divine, the 300-pound transvestite, notably John Waters’ 1981 “Polyester” and Paul Bartel’s 1985 “Lust in the Dust,” co-produced by Hunter himself.

Of “Polyester,” Hunter wrote: “Everybody got the joke. … For both John and me, our collaboration paid huge dividends: I’d helped ’legitimize’ his brand of movie, and he made me ’hip’ overnight.”

Hunter appeared on Broadway in 1964 in Tennessee Williams’ “The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore” opposite the formidable Tallulah Bankhead. The play closed within days, and he said it was “completely buried under Tallulah’s offhanded trademark campiness.”

Hunter was born in 1931 in New York City, the second son of a mechanic and his German immigrant wife. His father left the family two years later and the boy took his mother’s name, Gelien. Young Arthur Gelien grew up in San Francisco and Long Beach, California, and joined the Coast Guard at 15, lying about his age.

While in New York, he saw Broadway plays and became interested in acting. Back in California, Willson arranged for a two-word role in a small Western, “The Lawless.” He got $500 and a new name.

In his memoir, he said that his career flourished despite some innuendo and smear articles in the scandal sheets — “clear evidence that despite its self-righteous claims, ’Confidential’ magazine did not influence the taste and opinions of mainstream America.”

Writing the book was difficult, he told The Associated Press in 2005, “because I’m a really private person. I grew up full of denial. I just didn’t like any suggestions or questioning of my sexuality.”

In 1960, Hunter’s boy-next-door reputation did take a hit when he was charged with cruelty for allegedly beating his dog. (He was acquitted). In recent years, Hunter appeared in dinner theatres and organized film projects. After living on a ranch in New Mexico for a time, he took a home in Montecito in Santa Barbara County with Glaser.

He didn’t dwell on his Hollywood career or regret losing it. “I had my fling, and I was very fortunate,” he remarked. “But that’s all in my past.”

Very, Very Sad News. He Was – And Will Always Be – A True Legend. Rest In Peace, Mr. Ditko.

‘Spider-Man’ Artist Steve Ditko Has Died

Legendary cartoonist Steve Ditko, who helped create iconic comic characters like Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, has died.

He was 90.

Cops say Ditko was found dead inside his New York City apartment on June 29.

Born in Johnstown, Pa., Ditko began working for Marvel Comics in the late 1950s after a stint at arch-rival DC.

It was at Marvel where Ditko helped create Spider-Man in 1962, designing the beloved web slinger’s costume and colour scheme. The character became a smash hit.
The following year, Ditko created Doctor Strange before leaving Marvel in the mid-1960s following a dispute with Stan Lee.

Ditko freelanced for most of the rest of his career for a variety of publishers.

Called the “J.D. Salinger of the comics world,” the artist was intensely private and refused interviews. For the last few decades of his life, Ditko was for all intents and purposes a recluse.

“We didn’t approach him. He’s like J.D. Salinger. He is private and has intentionally stayed out of the spotlight like J.D. Salinger,” Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson told The Hollywood Reporter in 2016.

No one had heard from the artist for several days before his body was found. Cops say the death is not considered suspicious.

Author Neil Gaiman tracked Ditko down in New York for his documentary, In Search of Steve Ditko.

“Steve Ditko was true to his own ideals. He saw things his own way, and he gave of ways of seeing that were unique,” Gaiman tweeted.

“Often copied. Never Equalled. I know I’m a different person because he was in the world.”

That is great, great news!!

Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg Will Work Together Again

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright have a long working history together, from the TV series Spaced to the Cornetto Trilogy. The duo haven’t teamed up since 2013’s The World’s End, but according to Pegg, it’s only a matter of time before they’re together again.

So will we ever see a Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg film again? According to Pegg, the answer is yes. In a recent interview with Coming Soon, the actor says that the only reason the two haven’t worked together is due to timing and scheduling:

“Oh yeah, that’s like a given. The only reason we haven’t is just timing. Me and Edgar and Nick [Frost] are not colleagues, we’re friends. We go back a long time and we have a relationship that transcends work, but if only to hang with each other for an extended period we’ll make another film again. It’s just with our various commitments we have to find the time to write and make it. Me and Edgar talk about it all the time, and whenever we’re together we start brainstorming and we have certain ideas we want to develop. It’s just a question of ‘when,’ not ‘if.’”

This is very good news. While I’m fine with Pegg and Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy standing on its own, and while I think The World’s End was a perfect conclusion to said trilogy, I’d love to see them work together again. In addition to starring in the three entries of the Cornetto Trilogy, Pegg co-wrote those films with Wright. Wright directed Spaced, the British sitcom written by Pegg and Jessica Stevenson – a series that also featured Cornetto Trilogy cast member Nick Frost.

We’ll just have to be content with Pegg and Wright’s individual projects while we wait for them to reunite. Pegg will next be seen in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, hitting theaters July 27, 2018. Wright, meanwhile, is working on a documentary about the band Sparks. In addition to that, there’s a good chance Wright might be working on a Baby Driver sequel in the not too distant future.Pegg and Wright have come a long way since their first big movie together, 2004’s Shaun of the Dead. While they continued to work together with Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, their careers also branched off into different directions. Pegg joined both the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible franchise, and Wright helmed the surprise blockbuster Baby Driver.

It’s a smaller Marvel movie and so Ant-Man and the Wasp has a smaller Opening Weekend. I enjoyed it. Good fun!!

Ant-Man and the Wasp scales up to $76 million opening weekend

Two tiny heroes are making a sizable impression on the box office this weekend.

Disney and Marvel’s stature-shifting superhero sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp is on track to debut with about $76 million in ticket sales from 4,206 theaters in the U.S. and Canada, dethroning Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and continuing Marvel’s incredible hot streak.

Ant-Man and the Wasp marks the 20th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and each installment has opened at No. 1. While fellow MCU movies Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War both scored historic openings earlier this year, Ant-Man and the Wasp is a smaller-scaled affair that should still keep the mega-franchise’s momentum going. The opening is in line with industry estimates, which ranged from $70 million to $85 million, and it eclipses the original Ant-Man, which bowed to $57.2 million in 2015. Overseas, the sequel will add an estimated $85 million this weekend (from 48 percent of the marketplace).

Starring Paul Rudd as Ant-Man/Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp/Hope van Dyne, Ant-Man and the Wasp finds the heroes trying to rescue Hope’s mother (played by Michelle Pfeiffer) from the quantum realm, while also battling an intangible opponent (Hannah John-Kamen) and dodging the feds. Peyton Reed returned to direct the film, which reportedly cost about $162 million to produce.

Critics’ reviews for Ant-Man and the Wasp were generally positive, and audiences gave it an A-minus CinemaScore. The next MCU movie on the calendar is Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson; it opens March 8.

This week’s other newcomer, Universal and Blumhouse’s dystopian thriller The First Purge, opened Wednesday (on Independence Day) and is headed for a five-day total of about $31.1 million, in line with expectations. The Friday-Sunday frame accounts for $17.2 million of that amount, good for fourth place.

Arriving as the fourth entry in the Purge series, The First Purge is a prequel depicting the origins of an annual night of state-sanctioned lawlessness. Gerard McMurray directed, and Y’Lan Noel stars. Reviews were mixed, and moviegoers gave it a B-minus CinemaScore.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Disney and Pixar’s animated hit Incredibles 2 ($29 million), which is edging out last week’s top earner, Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ($28.6 million), and in fifth place, Sony’s borderland thriller Sicario: Day of the Soldado ($7.3 million).

On the specialty front, Roadside Attractions and Miramax’s Whitney Houston documentary Whitney is poised to open with about $1.3 million from 452 locations (a per-theater average of $2,758), and Annapurna Pictures’ outré sci-fi comedy Sorry To Bother You (directed by Boots Riley) is on track to debut with $717,302 from 16 theaters (a per-theater average of $44,831).

According to ComScore, overall box office is up 9 percent year-to-date. Check out the July 6-8 figures below.

Avengers: End Game. I like it!!

Marvel cinematographer possibly accidentally reveals ‘Avengers 4’ title

A Marvel cinematographer has accidentally revealed the title of the next Avengers movie, according to reports.

According to editors at website Omega Underground, Trent Opaloch, the cinematographer on Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War, may have accidentally revealed the title for the upcoming Avengers movie.

The next instalment in the Marvel franchise has been referred to as Avengers 4, but a screengrab taken from Opaloch’s website on Sunday has the film listed as Avengers: End Game.

And perhaps after a loud whisper in his ear from Marvel boss Kevin Feige, Opaloch later revised his earlier website entry to amend the reference from Avengers: End Game to a simple Avengers 4.

The rumoured title is reportedly based on a line uttered by Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in Infinity War, and matches one which was previously rumoured by fans and dismissed by the movie’s directors Anthony and Joe Russo.

In a recent interview with Uproxx, the Russo brothers dismissed chatter that the title of the next film appears in any of Infinity War’s dialogue.

When asked whether the name would come from the earlier film, Joe responded with a simple “No.”
