Not everyone is happy Gunn was fired from “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”. Thousands have signed an online petition for the Disney to re-hire James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director, after he was fired from the third film in the series. Gunn was fired after offensive tweets from his past resurfaced.
The development came a day after a series of old offensive tweets made by the filmmaker resurfaced on social media. In the old tweets, screenshots of which are available online, the 51-year-old director cracked crude jokes dealing with pedophilia and rape. The screenshots of Gunn’s tweets, which ranged from 2009 through 2012, were shared by a conservative website The Daily Caller.
Fellow director Joe Carnahan (The Grey and many others) shared the petition on Twitter, where it had collected more than 5,000 signatures as of Saturday. By early evening, it had risen to almost 16,000.
“I agree on the point that if people say a bunch of stupid shit while working for a studio, the studio has full right to fire him over the possible controversy. This situation is very different though as he made these jokes years before he was working for Disney and also the fact that they were jokes,” the petition read.
Toblerone is going back to its original shape and get the Toblerone bigger, but it’s will be more expensive too.
Makers of Toblerone, the Swiss chocolate bar, are to scrap its latest incarnation which saw wide gaps between its distinctive triangular chunks and reverting to its traditional shape- after chocolate lovers were upset when the number of triangles was cut.
That version of Toblerone was introduced in 2016 to reduce its weight. The 150g bar was reduced from 170g in 2016 as a way to keep prices steady at about £1 a bar. That bar is now being replaced with a new version weighing 33% more, but the price could rise by more than 200%.
One retailing source said that the new 200g bar’s recommended selling price will be £3.09, but big supermarkets will be able to sell the bars on promotion at £2-£2.50.
Chocolate makers began tweaking the size of chocolate bars two years ago after a surge in the price of cocoa. While prices fell in 2017, the cost of cocoa had risen 23% in the past year to more than £17 per kg.
A Mondelez spokesman told the Guardian: “We’re always reviewing our range to make sure we provide great quality Swiss chocolate in formats we know our fans love. The 150g Toblerone is no longer being manufactured and therefore availability of the bar depends on how much stock an individual retailer is carrying. But 100g and 360g size bars will still be available.”
Beautician found hanged next to her crying daughter after rowing with her boyfriend partner about him going on a ‘boys’ night out’ and was angry about being abandoned by her partner.
Agnieszka Giza, a 23-years-old mum-of-one, was found dead with her crying daughter standing next to her. Giza had wanted to attend a concert with her partner, Marek Goralczyk, but he left her at home – after he found out that his friends were not bringing their other partners.
The couple texted a series of angry texts as Agnieszka looked after their 3-year-old daughter in Cheshire. Giza mistakenly thought Marek, her 30-years-old boyfriend, was with another woman. She demanded Marek come home, but the battery in his phone ran out and he stayed over at his friend house.
Workmen who came to repair a patio door found Giza with her crying daughter standing next to her body.
Dormer, the 36-years-old actress, gained international attention with her performance of Margaery Tyrell on the HBO series Game of Thrones (2012–2016), for which she was nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards (2014–2015).
Natalie Dormer’s Game of Thrones days have been over for some time, but she’s just as invested in the final season as the rest of us. “I’m excited to see the next season. I’m on the edge of my seat like everybody else,” she told The Hollywood Reporter In Studio.
Dormer doesn’t know everything that happens in the last season of Game of Thrones, though. Dormer swears she is still loyal to Sansa Stark, thanks to time spent with actor Sophie Turner on set and has no love for the Queen Cersei Lannister. The one thing Dormer is sure of is that Cersei Lannister needs to go.
LET’S GO TEAM STARK!
Despite Dormer is not part of the next season any longer, She claims she’s been kept abreast of the most exciting developments in Season 8. Dormer not entirely sure of how it gets there, but apparently she knows how the series ends. “Oh, I know who ends up on the Iron Throne,” Dormer says, “But I don’t know how it happens.” It will likely involve a lot of bloodsheds, as is a tradition on the show. Dormer also said: “I do know that they’ve been shooting a lot of battle sequences, so there’s been a lot of action, But of course, they’re going to, it’s the big old fight, right? It’s the fight to the finish.” That’s as much as she’s willing to say for now.
Don’t worry from spoiler alert- the shows reportedly filming so many different endings, it’s possible that even Dormer remains in the dark.
Rami Malek is an ideal actor to portray legendary Queen singer Freddie Mercury, as the second trailer from ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the forthcoming biopic of the singer and the classic band he fronted, shows us.
The longer than the two-minute new trailer very exhilarating, with the classic music of Queen playing while the audience sees the band from its infancy to its rise to superstardom.
The official trailer for the Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ dropped Tuesday. The new trailer shows us a better backstage glimpse than a previous teaser, and the mood of this preview is in much more somber than the teaser.
Bohemian Rhapsody is “his (Freddie Mercury) story” as the trailer says, not really needing the explanation beyond Malek-as-Mercury’s response to the complaining Roger Taylor: “Roger,” Malek’s Mercury replies calmly, “there’s only room in this band for one hysterical queen.”

The past weekend was HUGE for France: First, the France football team won the 2018 World Cup; Second, only a few hours after the winning- Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s started the Run II tour in Paris.
In a video posted by @BeyLegion, one of Beyoncés fan account, The former First Lady was there with both daughters, Sasha and Malia, and it doesn’t look like America’s moms were embarrassed them too much with their dance moves, they both seen had their own personal chairs behind them and busting a move right up front at the foot of the stage while Jay-Z sang, “On to the Next One.” Don’t worry about their chairs, they left it behind them- just in case they wanted to take a rest (Tina made some use of).

The Oscars might be the most prestigious awards in the film industry. But over the course of history, some ridiculous movies were nominated for them. Worse, some of those stinkers were actually able to win Oscars as well.
The whole world looks to the Oscars when deciding whether a movie is worth watching or not. A classic status is instantly enshrined upon a movie after it has won one. Despite being so much importance attached to them, the Oscars have rewarded some stinkers over the years. The purpose of this article is to shed light on some of them.
Harry and the Hendersons (1987)
Won: Best Makeup
Here’s the plot of this movie, provided you have the stomach to call it that. A happy family, during their trip through a jungle, mistakenly run over a Bigfoot esque creature. Out of sympathy, the family brings it home. Once there, the creature gets back to life and starts loving a happy life, with the family. The movie is a stinker and torture to watch but somehow, it managed to bag the Oscar for Best Makeup.
Suicide Squad (2016)
Won: Best Makeup
Ever seen a movie which was as incomprehensible and constructed a superhero as bad as the Suicide Squad? Nope, me neither. The film was so bad that even Forbes, a magazine which mostly reserves it to deal with the financial side of things, ended up writing an article about how bad it was. However, as the Best Makeup Oscar which this movie got tells us, maybe the jury didn’t read that article.
Les Miserables (2012)
Won: Best Supporting Actress, Best Makeup, and Hairstyling, Best Sound Mixing
The clue lies in the title of the movie: miserable. Anna Hathaway, who won the best-supporting-actress award, was way too emotional and over-weepy with her performance. As for the sound mixing, the movie had too many songs with even Russel Crowe singing a song. What could be worse than this!
Awards Won: Best Original Screenplay, Best Picture, Best Film Editing
Despite being named as the ‘’worst move of the decade’’, this movie bagged not one but three Oscars. Apart from its star-studded cast and an inherent social message, this movie was abysmal. Though its topic was good (racism), the delivery was abysmal. Look, all of us know that racism is bad, that we shouldn’t indulge in it. The problem is that the movie told us everything which we already know.
The Wolfman (2010)
Award Won: Best Makeup
If there is one thing that hasn’t changed in the Oscar Jury over the last three decades, it is their love for the Bigfoot. Just like the abovementioned ‘Harry and the Hendersons’, it was the makeup of the Bigfoot which once again did the trick.
