Justin Trudeau’s Afghan Doppelganger

An Afghan talent show contestant, who gained viral fame for his striking resemblance to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has said that he hopes to meet his doppelganger in person.


Abdul Salam Maftoon, a bricklayer and a wedding singer in the remote province of Badakhshan, said that he had never heard of his Canadian counterpart until people began to point out their resemblance following his appearance on the talent show Afghan Star.

Speaking to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Maftoon said that he thought Trudeau could be his younger brother. “I looked it up on social media, and I was surprised. I looked at him, I looked at myself. I found out we have the same face. And I felt strange. I thought he could be my younger brother.” Maftoon said that he was just a “poor boy” from the remote borderlands of Afghanistan, but would be thrilled to meet Trudeau. “I would love to meet him. I hope my message reaches him, and I meet him face to face.” Credit: Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty via Storyful

A “Host-less” Oscar? Academy Awards To Forego Host

The 2019 Academy Awards will forgo a proper host for the first time in 30 years, according to reports.

In one of the most radical changes in the awards show’s history, the Oscars will be without a host. For the first time in three decades, the Academy Awards will instead select a A-Listers to introduce various segments instead of relying on a marquee name to kick things off with a monologue.

Variety reports: “The producers and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the group behind the Oscars, are scrambling to line up top talent needed to carry the telecast, which is just six weeks from airing live — on Feb. 24 — from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre. Hand-wringing at the Academy has been palpable.”

“The people who produce that show are hogtied by the Academy, who as a group are not willing to change very much. It’s hard to know how anyone in my community can really contribute,” one prolific awards show and live events producer told Variety, speaking on condition of anonymity.

This comes after original host Kevin Hart, dropped out within hours of being selected when he refused to apologize for decade-old remarks about homosexuals which resurfaced on Twitter.

Initially, the comedian was defiant. “I’m not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I moved on, and I’m in a completely different space in my life,” Hart said in a video on Instagram in the aftermath. “I’m going to be me; I’m going to stand my ground.”

He later quit that same day, apologizing for his past remarks, “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s….this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists,” he wrote on Twitter. “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.”

However, since a polarizing appearance on the talk show Ellen, Hart has continued to double down on his unwillingness to engage in dialogue with a critical LGBTQ community. “I’m not hosting the Oscars this year,” said Hart during a Wednesday sit-down on Good Morning America. When asked if he will host in the future he said, “It’s hard to predict what can happen.”

The show’s producers are said to be moving forward with a broadcast which will instead feature “starry skits and play up a high-profile year for music in film, thanks to likely nominees Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, and Kendrick Lamar”, one individual involved with the show said.

“Why not give it a shot? Things are so polarized anyway, any host that says anything will be analyzed to death,” suggested media consultant Brad Adgate. “No host might be an experiment, and, let’s face it, the days of Bob Hope and Billy Crystal hosting are over.”

The last time the ceremony had no host was during the 61st Academy Awards in March 1989, which began with a universally parodied musical segment starring Rob Lowe and Snow White which was watched by 42.6 million people when it aired.

Last year’s show’s ratings delivered an all-time low, with a drop of nearly 19% year over year to 26.5 million viewers. The academy is currently locked into a broadcasting deal with ABC until 2028 and faces ratings and financial pressures which also includes its long-anticipated $388 million museum, set to open in late 2019.

The Original Avengers Actors Pay Tribute to Stan Lee

The stars and crew of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continue to show love and tribute to Stan Lee following the Marvel Comics creator’s death earlier this week. News of the Marvel legend’s death broke on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018, whe he had been rushed to the hospital early that morning, before passing away. He was 95 years old.

While the original six Avengers actors all made tributes to Lee on Twitter following the news of his passing, they have decided to assemble yet again now honoring Lee’s legacy with a full-page magazine ad.

The full-page ad taken out by the original six Avengers appeared in this week issue of The Hollywood Reporter, along with five other full-page ads honoring Stan Lee. Signed by Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, the tribute to Stan Lee is set against the logo of the Avengers in gray. The ad was revealed by THR’s editor on Twitter.

 

Lee, of course, was part of the MCU not just in spirit as he had a cameo in every film and TV show in the franchise. In fact, we will probably see Lee on screen several more times: He filmed cameos for Captain Marvel and Avengers 4, and may have filmed others. It will be interesting to see how his absence affects the universe in the future.

Amazing ‘Avengers 4’ Fan-Made Cartoon

As The Avengers has grown to be among the biggest and most successful IPs of a generation, it’s no surprise to see fans want more. As ever with such huge franchises, the minute a title is released the fans want to see even more stuff come out. With much talk of the fourth Avengers movie, though, one fan has created a pretty impressive fan-made video that will get you pretty hyped for the real thing when it finally arrives.

With news of the first footage floating around the Marvel fan forums and the like, there’s a lot of speculation about what it might involve. One fan, though, has gone from talking about it on a forum to making his own fan trailer. It’s really impressive, and really does a good job of making the series look even better.

While rumored trailer descriptions are flying around, Spectrum Cinema, a popular YouTube channel has created a stylish animated trailer that depicts what the rumored script is supposed to be. Despite the fact it’s made more or less entirely by a fan, it’s very impressive indeed. The trailer, named Avengers: Annihilation, has some rather janky animation at times but it is really impressive for a fan-made effort.

It’s pretty macabre, in truth, but it’s very impressive in the way that it plays out. Given it’s pulling on what we can only call strange sources, too, it’s easy to forgive the more creative parts of the writing and animation. We won’t spoil much of the trailer for you, but you do see some finished Avengers, and also a ruined world after the events of Infinity War. It’s all quite grim, really.

Excited yet?

However, the trailer itself is a great piece of work and is sure to whet the appetite for what is to come in the future. We don’t want to sit and critique amateur animation, though, but the voice acting could … use some work. Fair play to them for trying, though: it’s definitely got Marvel fans talking anyway and it will play a big role in getting people hyped up for the big fourth movie to come.

It’s expected that we’ll see the trailer for the fourth edition – the real trailer – come out before the end of the year. As ever, though, this is mostly just speculation. We’ll find out as time goes on what is going to take place, but safe to say it’s going to be quite interesting anyway.

If you want to get in the mood for a big release from Marvel, then why not take a look at the fan trailer?

As outlandish as it might be, it’s a sterling effort and will definitely put you in the mind for another blockbuster involving Tony Stark and co.

Wait, What?! A Shrek & Puss-in-Boots Reboot? Already!?

Apparently, the world has run out of ideas. You see, whilst Shrek was fantastic at the time, it wasn’t anything tremendously new. It followed the same kind of premise and story as so many that came before it. The quality of animation and the way it’s delivered is tremendous, though – that’s not to say anything bad against Shrek. As a series, it’s quality. However, apparently, we’ve got to the stage where even Shrek is getting a reboot.

I used to laugh at elder family members bemoaning childhood classics of their own life being remade for a new generation. I didn’t think I’d see a childhood classic of my own, Shrek, turned into a reboot before my 30s. This is apparently close to happening, though. Apparently, Chris Meledandri, the mastermind behind Despicable Me among others, is being put in charge of the reboot by Universal, according to Variety.

Apparently, ogres aren’t really relevant in 2018 – so, expect some change in gender/orientation or a total swap-around of the roles. Let’s face it, reboots are often absolute drivel, and it’s not likely that this will go any better. The need to change things in a bid to keep it fresh (and to fit in with the more sanitized world it will arrive in) often leads to reboots being technically superior, bt far less pure and enjoyable than the first set.

Even more ridiculously, side-kick Puss in Boots is getting the same reboot. Even stranger is that apparently the idea is to get Eddie Murphy, Michael Myers and Antonio Banderas back together to do it all over again. I can’t really wrap my head around the concept of a reboot that uses all the same old cast but, uh, cool?

A rather fitting concept

As 2018 appears to be a year where people just don’t have a clue what they are doing, the quote from Meladandri that the “challenge for us has been to find something that really does feel like it’s not simply yet another film in a series of sequels,” hardly inspires confidence that this is a well though tout concept.’

This might be an absolute car crash, and it’s best we prepare for that. Without any real idea how to make it better or different from the original, I fear we might get a butchered version of the originals, devoid of the original patter and enjoyment while replaced with more sponsorship and dreadful puns.

Reboots. Eugh.

At Age 70 George R.R. Martin Begins Another GoT Project

George R. R. Martin has revealed the title of the first of the highly anticipated Game of Thrones prequel television shows. He confirmed on his website that the series will be titled The Long Night. He Tweeted, “Casting is now underway for THE LONG NIGHT, the first of the GAME OF THRONES successor series to ordered to film.”

Just last week, Oscar-nominated Australian actress Naomi Watts was cast in the show in an unspecified role. Martin responded to the announcement writing on his blog, “I could not be more excited. Welcome to Westeros, Naomi.”

The Long Night will be written by Jane Goldman who has also adapted the Kingsman films, The Woman In Black, and Kick-Ass for the silver screen. “She and her team are busy in London right now, neck deep in casting, and I expect some more names will be announced soon,” Martin said.

The 70-year-old author also teased about the other planned prequels, although he wouldn’t offer any details. “Meanwhile, there are still a couple of other possible prequels in active development,” he said. “I can’t tell you the subject matter of those projects, no, sorry, wish I could.”

HBO which produces Game of Thrones has up to five spin-offs from the show currently in production. The final season of the show, scheduled to air in 2019, will reportedly have the biggest battle in entertainment history.

The network released a description for The Long Night as follows: “Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”

If the prequel does indeed get made to order, it would mark the first time in HBO’s history that a follow-up series has been made to one of its shows.

Justin Bieber’s #burritogate Scandal’s Surprising Explanation

Back on October 26, Justin Bieber was spotted doing something unusual according to reports – eating a burrito sideways like an apple. It was a paparazzi photo seen around the world, and many were reportedly left confused and some even upset by the pic. Surprisingly, news stations picked it up, while blogs went wild over it.

The story was picked up by USA Today, Vice, Vanity Fair and the San Francisco Chronicle, among others. Victoria’s Secret Model, Chrissy Teigen, came to Bieber’s defense Tweeting, “the only way they should be eaten tbh, ends are just carb factories.”

Now, the truth has come out that the burrito-harmonica moment was all staged, and even more shockingly, the person in the photo wasn’t Bieber, it was a Canadian lookalike named Brad Sousa. The entire thing was staged and set up by a team of YouTubers called “Yes Theory” where Sousa dressed up the singer’s doppelgänger. After posting the image on Reddit, the team waited for the internet to do its thing. They also reposted it to another subreddit where it soon reached the top spot. The team were swamped with media requests for interviews and played along before deciding to reveal their elaborate prank.

“Yes Theory” posted a video of the prank, detailing how they got together with Sousa and watching the paparazzi take videos in order to capture his current hairstyle, tattoos, sense of fashion, and mannerisms. The ensuing photos were snapped, leaked, and posted, and thus an internet meme was born. “We were trying to think of something that would offend the internet,” the team explained in the video.

What was the reason for the prank? “We wanted to prove a point, that staging a story, as goofy as it was, can be done much more easily than most people can imagine,” “Yes Theory” explained. The question remains, however, does Justin Bieber know how to eat a burrito? We’ve got a feeling that the next time Bieber’s in the vicinity of a Chipotle, all eyes are going to be on him.

Netflix Genres Boring You? Open Them Up Today

Netflix is, easily, one of the most popular online platforms used today. Millions of users curl up in front of their TV to watch their on-demand shows, when they want. While some of us complain that Netflix has too much choice, some people find it hard to choose. For example, their genre selections are, at best, poor. You can find it hard to really dig into what you wish to watch, which soon becomes an exercise in frustration.

To solve that problem, we recommend that you take a look at this easy to use Netflix genre cracker. This opens up thousands of new genres to look through when searching for movies. If you are sick of the same old genres giving you eyebrow raising returns, you can use this simple solution to open up the floor to some far more interesting movie choices.

Making the most of Netflix

To start off with, thanks to What’s On Netflix for coming across this awesome little trick. You will need to use a variety of specific codes to open up Netflix much more, giving you much more control over what you watch.

For example, if you wanted to find something very particular, you can. Mad genres appear, like “Bellydancing” and even “Campy Chinese Movies” – they have a little hidden sub-category for any kind of movie that you can think of. To make this work, all you need to do is type in the following URL:

https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX

All you need to do is swap out XXXX for the genre you wish to browse through, and voila. You can find all of the codes that you need online, making it easy to tap into over 70,000 hidden sub-genres. It’s very interesting, and makes it easy for you to make your Netflix experience a touch more specific.

Many of us spend hours just flicking through Netflix hoping to find something decent. With this, you make more or less certain that you can find something worth watching. However, opening up the floor so much will mean potentially making it even harder to choose. If you struggle to make a choice with the options already on Netflix, make sure you have a rough idea of the genre that you wish to watch.

Decision making falls through the floor when we have too many options, so try and limit in your mind the kind of movie youwish to watch. Then, start your browser search. If you go on with so many new options to pick from, you will likely just make what is already a hard choice even harder than it needs to be!

The Last Alaskans Back for Season 4. Why?

The Discovery Channel is at it again. After initial belief that the show might be canceled due to the death of one of its main stars, they’ve decided to bring back The Last Alaskans for season 4. It’s a docuseries about a group of “modern-day pioneers” who live in The Refuge, the largest protected wilderness in the U.S.

battling it to the end and give a chance for fans to say goodbye”

I don’t think it would be easy for me to watch the renewed series with the trust I had a few years ago. Now that we know of so many times the Discovery Channel was not straight with us and practically tricking us into believing that what we see on their shows is real.

This season we will meet Bob Harte again, but this time as a cancer patient who is, as Discovery describes it: ‘battling it to the end and give a chance for fans to say goodbye”. Bob grew on us in the last seasons, but following him to his death? Quite low in my world.

We will also meet a family who will try to survive it during winter in the refuge. They, of course, also have internal family disputes, for the enjoyment of the viewers. Another couple will bring their baby girl into the refuge and put her in danger to get their 15 minutes of fame. Isn’t that nice.
Another man we would be seeing is a guy who needs to save his family business which was almost completely destroyed during the summer fires.

And the truth?

they've decided to bring back The Last Alaskans for season 4.

That’s the main issue here. Discovery channel has not been straight with us on so many of their shows, such as Bear Grylls, Alaskan Bush People (Alaska again), Gold Rush and many more.
Why should we think that this show would be different? Would they really put a baby in danger with a chance to freeze or starve? I don’t think so.
So yes, these types of shows have a crowd, but please… how gullible does the Discovery channel think we are? Pretty much if they keep sending these shows our way.

5 Funny Tweets That Say ‘Clueless’ All Over Them

Well, no one ever said that ALL great minds think alike!  Couples are no exception when it comes to being on the same page at the same time. In an age of digital devices and high technology, some people just never really climbed on board.

Even the most successful relationships can have very funny moments that leave for more questions than answers. From looking up into the sky and asking if that’s Earth shining up there to confusing the sun with the moon!  It’s a fact that all relationships have their ups and downs but if you can laugh it off, you are by far the better person!

Organ “Donor”

When you’ve been brought up to believe that, if given the opportunity, the government will steal the gold right out of your mouth, it’s a little difficult to know where the line is drawn.  We’ve got to side with this guy, if for no other reason than his misunderstanding about organ donations.  He really did believe they could stop by one day and request an organ!  In self-defense, his lack of knowledge on the subject left him wanting to protect what is rightfully his!

Then Where Are You?

Some questions can be a little strange if the person asking is not familiar with a given subject but, in this case, it sounds like the girlfriend skipped her astronomy class in elementary school.  One night she gazed up into the sky, stared at a star, and asked her boyfriend if they were looking at planet Earth!  Well, if that’s the Earth, where the heck are the rest of us hanging out?

A Brown Cow

So, this woman goes for a walk, comes running back in a panic that she was being charged by an animal! Saying it looked like a cow but was black and white not brown, leaves us with several questions.  One, did she not learn anything about biology in school?  Two, did it ever dawn on her that just because it was not brown, it sure looked like a cow!  Lady, trust us – it’s a cow!

Plastic Love?

Ok, we realize some artificial plants look real but how many times would you water a plant and see the water just pouring through?  Well, Tweedledee and Tweedledum seem to be a perfect match!  Being told once would normally be enough, but three times?? Give me a break!

That Explains Why He Didn’t Pick Up

We all seem to take advantage of a world with cell phones that are at arm’s length.  This woman wanted to call her husband but overlooked one important fact.  He had told her he left his cell phone at home and asked her to bring it to him. Well, looks like she forgot the phone when she tried to call him.  We do applaud her for finding the humor in this faux pas and hopefully had a good laugh!

Will ‘Blade’ Be Back? Snipes Says So

As one of the most iconic actors of the 1990s and early 2000s, Wesley Snipes is a big name in the entertainment history of millions. From playing Marvel legend Blade to running around as the maniacal Simon Phoenix in Demolition Man, Snipes got around to quite incredible levels back in the day.

While he isn’t quite the mega star that he once was, Snipes is back in the big picture with the news that two new Blade projects are currently being worked upon. For those who loves these classic movies, you’ll be delighted to hear that Blade is on his way back – and seemingly ina big way.

Blade? Who’s That?

While I might die from shock that someone has not heard of Blade, he’s the exceptional vampire hunter who spends all his time wiping out these monsters. His mother, you see, was attacked by a vampire as she was giving birth to him, so, you know, natural hatred.

As you may have guessed, Blade is eventually turned into a vampire himself – though he uses a special serum to stop himself becoming a bloodsucker fully. Now, he hunts his new kin from the shadows, and the various media formats follow his story as he avenges his mother and keeps the public free from the vampires’ dominance.

What’s next for Blade then?

A hell of a lot, if you listen to Snipes talk about it, where he said: “There are a lot of conversations going around right now, and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something from that world again.

“We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world, and when people see them, I think they’re only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love most,”

However, is a world where Marvel moves have come so chromatic and colorful – and full of character development that can often be one-track due to the size of the cast – the right place to house someone as dark and as serious as Blade?

Fear not, as the hunter himself says that Marvel “gets it…the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now.”

That sounds pretty damn interesting. The original Blade movies rank up there as some of the best around: the idea that they could be coming back and better than ever before is just so exciting. Who knows? It might be a good chance for Marvel to try out something a bit more ambitious when it comes to a more serious, adult tone to their movies.

If they ever try and make up for the abomination that is the new Venom movie, then this would serve as a good way to create a more visceral kind of superhero movie. Either way, it won’t be too long – hopefully – until we see Wesley Snipes taking people to the cleaners again, blade in hand.

Soon On Netflix: “Choose Your Ending”

Isn’t this exciting? Netflix users may soon have more customizable features on their subscription. We hear that you may be able to determine how your favorite shows end. This new feature is expected to be rolled out with new seasons of shows such as Black Mirror, and other interesting presentations. By allowing subscribers to choose their preferred adventure storyline, users have an opportunity to experience an ending that makes them happy.

Netflix has been around for many years. The service started as a direct mail entertainment platform where you could rent DVDs. Later, the platform was enhanced to become a streaming service which featured the popular TV shows and recent movies. Now, Netflix is leading others in a new direction. In recent years, the company has been focused on developing original content for its subscribers.

The availability of new TV shows exclusive to Netflix gives subscribers a premium service. For a monthly fee, you can have unlimited access to complete seasons of shows. This feature is mostly celebrated by subscribers who enjoy binge-watching their favorite TV shows. The idea to become an original content creator for TV and entertainment has led to remarkable success. The polls indicate that many subscribers are happy with the unlimited access they have to new TV shows and movies that seem different from others productions.

Now, we hear about a more interactive experience on Netflix. Everyone is excited about this news. The first test for this new feature was done with the children’s show- Puss in Book. Children could select their preferred storyline.

Netflix has decided to give this new feature a trial with Black Mirror, a sci-fi based TV series that has captivated the attention of a large audience. On one episode of Black Mirror, subscribers will be able to choose how the story ends.

So many companies have been exploring the idea of starting interactive TV shows. It gets even more interesting when you think about these features used for the movies. While we know there may be so many secret projects by other companies. Netflix is the first company to announce its decision to introduce this feature in a TV show for adults. There may, however, be some challenges.

It is expected that such elaborate TV shows will require more work during production. This means more financial investment and labour costs. There may be a limitation to the available choices the viewers can select for particular TV shows. Overall, the introduction of this new feature is going to require more funding for movies and TV shows. From this perspective, we are hopeful that the new feature will be successful to make more profits that can cover additional costs.

If Netflix gets it right, there will surely be an increase in the number of its subscribers. It will also mark the transition of the video streaming business to a new and better level. The goal of Netflix is to keep you entertained. It has become crucial to achieve this goal because of the rise in competition in this area. We have seen the aggressive campaigns done by other similar companies such as Hulu, and YouTube.

Amy Winehouse (Hologram) Back On Tour

It’s been seven years since she was found dead but we will soon be able to hear and see her again on stage. Kind of creepy in my opinion.
A company called Base Hologram has announced a partnership with Winehouse’s estate to go on tour in order “to celebrate the singer’s legacy.” Many have voiced their concerns about exploiting her name and music and think she should be left alone.

Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 when she was only 27. This spiked other mythical rumors about the famous “27 death club” in which many famous artists died at that age. The company Base says that it’s “the leading live entertainment content creator leveraging holographic film technology to produce live entertainment tours and attractions worldwide.”

A statement the company issued said that “Utilizing new state-of-the-art proprietary technology, the production will launch towards the end of 2019. Featuring digitally remastered arrangements of her classics, the hologram will be backed by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.”

Her father said that it’s a dream come true for the family; “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words.
