Even though Paddington Bear only made his theatrical debut three years ago, he’s been a beloved children’s character for nearly six decades, be it as the star of many books or lead several TV shows in the United Kingdom. Sadly, the man who brought Paddington to life all those years ago is no longer with us, as Michael Bond has passed away at the age of 91.
Publishing company HarperCollins broke the news earlier today that Michael Bond died at his home following a “short illness.” Bond, a member of the Order of the British Empire, is survived by his wife, Susan; two children, Karen and Anthony; and four grandchildren. HarperCollins CEO Charlie Redmayne said the following about the author:
“Michael Bond was one of the great children’s writers and at HarperCollins we are immensely fortunate to have published him and to have known him. He was a wonderful man and leaves behind one of the great literary legacies of our time.”

A collaboration between Marvel TV, IMAX, and ABC, Inhumans looks set to be a television event unlike any other when it debuts this fall. However, everything we’ve seen from the show so far has really divided fans as the costumes and casting decisions have split opinions in a major way. The first trailer also leaked online and failed to impress, so will the real deal make much of a difference this week?
We’ll find out on Thursday because it’s been confirmed today that it’s then we’re getting the first official trailer for the series. Whether or not it will differ to the one that leaked online a while ago remains to be seen, but based on this teaser it appears we should forget about seeing anything new.
The wait is almost over. This Thursday, check back for the first trailer from “Marvel’s #Inhumans“! @theinhumans pic.twitter.com/phelZa5TCb

The first two episodes of Inhumans will be screened in IMAX theaters and the plan is then for those and the subsequent six instalments to air on ABC.

It’s a no brainer *ha, puns..* that if you followed my original movie news instagram page that you would know that my favorite director is of course, Edgar Wright. And one of my personal favorite films from him is the 2004 zombie “romantic” comedy, Shaun Of The Dead. It’s always been a Halloween tradition for me to watch the film during Halloween night and I can quote 90% of the entire film in one sitting! Besides that, one of my favorite YouTube accounts, CineFix , released a video detailing seven interesting facts about the film in celebration of Wright’s new film, Baby Driver! So check it out down below, Movie Geeks! It’s most certainly is a smashing watch!
LaVar Ball took part in what was supposed to be a fun segment with his sons Lonzo and LaMelo on WWE’s “Monday Night Raw” TV show, but the segment quickly went off the rails in more ways than one!
“Monday Night Raw” was broadcast live from Staples Center on the USA Network, and the Balls appeared on Miz TV, the in-show interview segment hosted by WWE heel The Miz.
The ring had four mannequins wearing “Big Baller” T-shirts. Miz introduced LaVar Ball and his son, LaMelo. LaVar got booed as he ran down and slid into the ring. LaVar started hyping the Big Baller brand and got booed again. LaMelo didn’t say anything, but seemed to be having the time of his life.
LaVar then introduced Lonzo, who came down to cheers. He said he was happy to be in Stapes Center for the first time as a Laker, which also drew cheers. That was the end of Lonzo’s participation in the segment.
Miz said he was happy to announce a partnership between himself and the Big Baller brand, and it was at this point that the segment went off the rails. LaVar took over, said Miz wasn’t big enough for them and then proceeded to say things like, “There are only two dudes better than I am and I’m both of them,” and then ripped off his T-shirt and challenged Miz to a fight. This was met with laughter from Lonzo and LaMelo, a junior-to-be at Chino Hills High . Then LaVar ran around the ring.
LaMelo, had a live microphone in his hand and said, “Beat that — “ using a pejorative for African-Americans. He was laughing when he said it and was having fun watching his dad go crazy in the ring. But social media is already picking up on it, so the Ball family may have some explaining to do Tuesday!
WWE responded to what happened with the following: “The inappropriate language used by a guest during the ‘Miz TV’ segment was not scripted nor reflects WWE’s values.”
Check out the unedited segment down below, but be warn because it does contain inappropriate language.
Now there’s a fan theory out there (cue the eyerolls) that states Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man) actually already appeared in the MCU…and in IRON MAN 2 of all places! The theory states that the little kid in the Iron Man mask during the climax at the Stark Expo is none other than Peter Parker himself! Pretty far-fetched, huh?
Anyway, here’s the scene in question, for reference:
However, here’s what Tom Holland had to say about the theory in an interview with The Huffington Post:
“It is Peter Parker,” said Holland.“It is?” we asked.
“I can confirm that, that is Peter Parker,” Holland said.
“No way, for sure?” we asked again.
“I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now,” said Holland. “It’s cool. I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”
Do you think that little Iron Man was indeed Peter Parker? You decide!

Almost a year and a half ago, word came out that Kevin Bacon would be part of a new Tremors TV series. He was expected to executive produce and reprise his role of Valentine McKee from the 1990 film with Fred Ward. Bacon has recently confirmed that the pilot is going ahead and it has found a home at Syfy:
“We are going to do a pilot for Syfy. It’s the only character I’ve ever played that I was interested in exploring 25 years later. It is a really good movie. I don’t go back and watch my movies but because we were doing this one, I had to go back and look at it. It’s just the idea of this loser who is living a very ordinary life and has an extraordinary experience with these monsters and becomes, for a moment, a hero.”
