Stephen Lang Says Don’t Breathe 2 Is Its Own Thing

Don’t Breathe 2 is finally coming our way next year, but don’t expect a repeat of the first movie. This, according to star Stephen Lang, who will be reprising his role as “the blind man” from the 2016 horror/thriller. Even though much remains mysterious, Lang says that the sequel is very much its own thing.

Stephen Lang is currently promoting a very different type of project; his new children’s book, The Wheatfield. During a recent interview, the actor was asked about the upcoming sequel, which wrapped filming back in October. The movie managed to film during quarantine, which is an accomplishment on its own. As Lang explained, in some ways, the health and safety protocols enacted on set worked in his favor as an actor. Here’s what he had to say about it.

Will a ‘GLOW’ Movie Happen? Alison Brie Says ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

Click here to read the full article.

Fans of Netflix’s “GLOW” were dealt a wallop of a disappointment last month when the planned fourth and final season of the popular comedy series about women’s professional wrestling was axed due to the pandemic. Cast member Marc Maron shortly thereafter stoked fans’ excitement when he suggested that the best way to wrap the series would be a two-hour movie to give the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling one more shot in the ring. Alison Brie, according to a recent discussion as part of The Playlist’s “The Fourth Wall” podcast, shares that sentiment, but is also pessimistic about the return.

“I certainly think a [‘GLOW’] movie could tie everything up,” said Brie. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers. And they’re so devoted to these characters that they created. I think a movie would be a great way to wrap it

Alison Brie on a Possible GLOW Movie: ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

One of the more recent casualties of Netflix’s new harsh habit of canceling shows unceremoniously is GLOW, which, rather than being canceled, was actually ‘un-renewed.’ Which is to say it had already been picked up for a fourth and final season before Netflix changed its mind and pulled the plug completely, leaving fans in limbo with an unfinished story.Obviously, in times like these, viewers might clamor for that one extra season, even if it’s a shortened version, just to give some closure. Or, in this case, a GLOW wrap up movie, which fans (and star Marc Maron) have asked for.

While talking to The Playlist’s podcast, The Fourth Wall, Brie opened up about the possibility of a movie – and why she’s not exactly counting on it happening.

“I certainly think a [GLOW] movie could tie everything up,” Brie said. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers.

Lockdown: Don’t buy pets on social media, charities say

A box of abandoned kittensPress Association

Animal charities have warned people not to buy pets from breeders advertising on social media platforms like Facebook.

A BBC investigation has revealed puppies and kittens are being advertised through the platform, even though Facebook guidelines say the animals cannot be sold between private individuals.

Charities say that the animals may be sick, too young or it could be a scam, with no pet for sale at all.

The warning comes as demand for pets increases over lockdown, with the RSPCA calling these sellers “extremely irresponsible”.

“We know that there are lots of unscrupulous breeders and sellers out there who exploit social media and classified websites in order to sell puppies and kittens without arousing suspicion,” a RSPCA spokesperson said.

It says people should consider adopting from a rescue centre first, or follow its advice on buying dogs and cats – including seeing where the animal was bred.

Sia Reacts to Criticism of ‘Music’ Trailer From Autism Community: ‘Why Don’t You Watch My Film Before You Judge It?’

The trailer does not explain why Music does not speak and makes no direct mention of her disability, but when another commenter asked the singer — who also wrote the script and 10 original songs for the accompanying album — “did you do any research or consult the community at all?,” suggesting it was “very condescending” to say it would be “cruel” to consult a disabled actor, Sia explained her process for prepping for the film.

“Duh. I spent three f—ing years researching,” she said, later adding that she was confused at the pushback since the character is entirely based on her neuro-atypical friend in response to another commenter who asked why it would be “cruel” to cast someone with the character’s abilities in place of Sia’s longtime foil/video avatar Ziegler. “He found it too stressful being non verbal, and I made this movie with nothing but love for him

Top WHO official in Europe says face masks could prevent COVID lockdowns, and school closures don’t work

The World Health Organization’s senior official in Europe said Thursday that blanket national lockdowns to curb the spread of COVID-19 wouldn’t be necessary if governments could convince their citizens to wear masks. Dr. Hans Kluge also said that closing schools was not an effective way to prevent the coronavirus spreading, and that it should be avoided.

Many European nations have made masks mandatory in public places, or at least in places where it’s not possible to keep a reasonable distance. England and France, suffering two of the worst COVID epidemics in Europe, have been put back under nationwide lockdowns, but schools are still open in both countries. Other major EU nations have more tailored restrictions.

Kluge said 95% of a country’s population would have to wear masks when out and about to render lockdowns unnecessary, and he admitted that was a tall order.

Newsmax chief says he’d welcome Trump to his cable channel but ‘we don’t want to be Trump TV’

All the talk about Donald Trump going from the White House to cable TV mogul doesn’t mean the president is going to take over Palm Beach County-based Newsmax and turn it into Trump TV.

“I would welcome the president’s involvement in the channel,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said Friday in a telephone interview.

But even for the longtime Trump friend there are limits. “We don’t want to be Trump TV. We want to be Newsmax.”

Newsmax, headquartered in Boca Raton, is so pro-Trump that it doesn’t recognize Joe Biden as the president elect, something done by every major news organization in the country. But Ruddy, who has a home and votes in West Palm Beach, said his friendship with the president has nothing to do with how Newsmax is calling the election.

“I’ve known the president for a long time. I’ve always kept the friendship separate from the editorial judgment.”

Why poll watcher complaints don’t amount to fraud

President Donald Trump’s legal allies have launched a flurry of lawsuits arguing that widespread fraud could have been committed because its poll watchers didn’t get proper access to the voting process. Most of those lawsuits have been dismissed over lack of evidence of election fraud.

Trump has tried to argue that there is a link between some of the complaints of partisan poll watchers and the results of the election, which was won by Democrat Joe Biden. But there has been no credible information to validate his assertions. In fact, both state and federal officials have praised the 2020 election as safe and secure.

WHAT IS A POLL WATCHER?


A poll watcher is a partisan appointee who monitors voting or ballot counting to help ensure their party gets a fair shot. They are not supposed to interfere in the electoral process, except to report issues to party officials or polling
