Will Amazon Buy MGM Film Studio?

 


Amazon is reportedly in talks to buy MGM, the vaunted film studio that was a staple of Hollywood's Golden Age. A tie-up would give the tech firm a big brand to wield as competition in streaming grows fiercer by the day.


MGM's iconic logo of a roaring lion has played before tons of classic films, including the "James Bond" series, and the studio could be valued at between $7 billion and $10 billion.

Roku Streaming Service Now Challenging Amazon Prime


Roku just unveiled new streaming TV changes that sound a lot like what Apple is planning. The change gives Roku's media partners a chance to include ad content inside of the Roku app instead of leaving it inside separate apps where fewer viewers can see the ads.

The Roku Channel, a separate section of the Roku user interface on TVs with Roku software and Roku products, will soon let users subscribe to paid content from Showtime, EPIX, Starz and a handful of other, lesser-known networks. Customers will be able to see all of the shows and movies available on those platforms before they subscribe, and can access the movies and TV shows from other devices, such as phones and tablets. They'll also be able to pay for all the services through one bill paid to Roku, instead of a separate bill for each service.

But there's a lot of missing content in Roku's new offering. HBO, Hulu and Netflix aren't available. Those apps are still available outside of "The Roku Channel," but users will need to navigate to the home screen and away from "The Roku Channel," which is clearly where Roku is going to try to keep its users' eyeballs.

The move also sounds similar to what Apple is planning. CNBC reported in October that Apple will mix its free original content with subscription channels inside of the TV app , which is available on iPhones and iPads. Apple may introduce its service as soon as this year.

Drake Buys Rights To New Show

Drake's relationship with the British underground scene has been a very fruitful one for not only himself but for many of the U.K. grime artists he's worked with such as Skepta, among many others. Now, he's pushing further with the news that he's recently bought the rights to the London-based drama, "Top Boy."

The Toronto rapper not only intends to own the show but to also play a starring role. Being a longtime fan of Top Boy, he expressed his love as a fan for the hit series over the years with various shout outs in raps like "Know Yourself", and even tweeted about it before, saying "@AshleyWalters82 is too incredible!! Everybody on Top Boy gives such incredible performances. That show is just too good."

He purchased the show after it was dropped by Channel 4 and was picked up by Netflix.

Ashley Walters, who plays Dushane on the show tells The Daily Mirror that the producers intend on making him a "significant" character.

"We met up to start talking about the show and we are working out a role for him," he said. "He loves acting, of course he wanted a part. He's going to be really hands on and is getting stuck into it.

The rapper has maintained his acting chops occasionally with various, but memorable Saturday Night Live appearances and his extended music videos and short films such "Hold On We're Going Home", "Jungle", "Please Forgive Me" and several cameos in films like Think Like A Man Too, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and Ice Age: Continental Drift. He has yet to play a significant character in a television show or movie since his "Degrassi" days.

Young Thug Named The Real Life Gangstalicious

Young Thug’s sexual orientation has been one of fascination to both his fans and detractors for quite some time. Thug, born Jeffrey Williams, habitually, and with a supreme sense of I-don’t-give-a-f**kness, indulges in behavior that many in the hip-hop community have seen fit to deem “sus.” For example, he has a fondness for calling his closest friends “hubby,” and also recently shared that around 90 percent of his wardrobe is comprised of women’s clothing. Of course none of these things are indicative of Thug’s sexuality or gender identity, and by his own admission, there should be no question that he identifies as a heterosexual male. Nevertheless, his gratuitous displays of affection towards his male friends, and unfettered love of blouses and skinny jeans, have managed to generate substantial dispute.

 Last week, producers London on da Track and Beatmonster Marc, who are affiliates of Thug, added fuel to the fire when they suddenly found themselves embroiled in a gay porn scandal. During a studio session that allegedly included Thug and rappers Kid Ink and Tyga, Marc posted an Instagram video intended to showcase the crew hard at work. The innocent recording quickly attracted the biting commentary of idle twitter fingers when a few keen eyes noticed what appeared to be a bit of male-on-male action taking place on an oversized television screen.

The conclusion many jumped to was that the group had been participating in some sort of group Netflix and chill scenario that had somehow turned 50 shades of homoerotic. Marc quickly refuted the claims, stating they had simply been watching Game of Thrones, which to be fair, has been known to feature its fair share of same-sex loving.

However, given the curiosity surrounding Young Thug’s sexuality, some took the incident as confirmation that Thug was indeed hiding his true preferences. Even if he is, that is of course his right and prerogative. However, that is only one possibility. Another is that Young Thug is simply so comfortable being Young Thug that heteronormative gender distinctions mean nothing to him.
It all combines to make Young Thug something of an anomaly to many. In the same way Riley was forced to reevaluate his perceptions of masculinity and its role in hip-hop, those who come into contact with Young Thug often subconsciously or consciously do the same. With each new outfit or Instagram post, Thug manages to incite debate around what is acceptable as a man, and as a hip-hop artist; he’s also unintentionally (or intentionally) made people question what these supposed acceptable patterns of behavior even have to do with an artist’s ability to make music (nothing, really). And despite, or maybe because of his non-conformist attitude, Thug is successful.

Seeing Thug blur and at times flat out erase the lines of what many perceive as appropriate masculine behavior, and in turn seeing the confusion it causes, is like watching an episode of the The Boondocks play out in reality. But instead of desperately clinging to the status quo in order hide a secret like Gangstalicious, Thug gleefully flouts the status quo. The outcome is still the same in that both the ficitional Gangstalicious and the very real Young Thug cause people to question pre-conceieved notions about gender and sexuality.

Action Bronson To Get An Acting Role In Movie @ActionBronson


He sings. He raps. He cooks. He smokes a lot of weed. Now, Action Bronson can add “seasoned actor” to his resumé after scoring a role in the new film The Irishman, according to Billboard. Directed by Martin Scorsese, the Netflix film stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Ray Ramano and Joe Pesci.

Based on Charles Brandt’s book I Hear You Paint Houses, The Irishman follows Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (played by De Niro), a mob hitman allegedly involved in the death of Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa (played by Pacino).

When reached for comment, Bronson’s manager told HipHopDX they “can’t really talk about it right now,” so it’s unclear what role he’s been given.

The Queens MC hit up Instagram last week to share a photo of himself with De Niro and Scorsese, which he captioned, “Religious Art.”

Understanding The Jennifer Lopez Documentary “Halftime” At Tribeca Festival

 


The Jennifer Lopez documentary “Halftime” is kicking off the 21st Tribeca Festival on Wednesday, launching the annual New York event with an intimate behind-the-scenes portrait of the singer-actor filmed during the tumultuous year she turned 50, co-headlined the Super Bowl and narrowly missed out on an Oscar nomination.


The star-studded, musical premiere at the United Palace in Washington Heights serves as an appropriate opener for the Tribeca Festival, which has jettisoned “Film” from its name to better reflect the wide array of concerts, talks, television premieres, podcasts and virtual reality exhibits that increasingly fill its busy live-event schedule alongside movies.
