Motley Crue Biopic ‘The Dirt’ To Be Released By Netflix In March

Heavy metal band Motley Crue told everyone the band’s juiciest sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll secrets in the 2001 memoir The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. Not too long after the release of the New York Times bestseller, the group started discussions with various movie studios about turning their outrageous tale into a film. However, it wasn’t until Netflix bought the rights in March of 2017 that the ball really started rolling. Filming began in New Orleans this past February, and now the movie finally has a release date.

On Sunday, December 2, Motley Crue singer Vince Neil revealed on Twitter that Netflix will begin streaming the film on March 22.

“Wow!!! Just left Netflix offices,” Neil began his tweet.

“Just saw The Dirt movie!! F***in awesome!! Can’t wait for everyone to see it!”

Rolling Stone confirmed the March 22 release date with a Netflix spokesperson.

The Dirt, directed by Jeff Tremaine (Jacka**), stars Daniel Webber (The Punisher) as Neil, Douglas Booth (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as bassist Nikki Sixx, Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as guitarist Mick Mars, and rapper Machine Gun Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee.

Additionally, Tony Cavalero (TV’s School of Rock) plays legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne, Rebekah Graf (My Roommate Sam) plays Lee’s ex-wife Heather Locklear, Leven Rambin (Grey’s Anatomy) plays Neil’s ex-wife Sharise Neil, and David Costabile (Billions) plays the band’s longtime manager Doc McGhee.

In 2015, Lee told Rolling Stone that the movie’s opening scene is crazy, and that “detail-oriented” director Tremaine intended to make the movie “as real as possible.”

Earlier this year, Motley Crue revealed that they recorded four brand-new tracks to accompany the classics in The Dirt.

“It feels real and raw,” Sixx said about the tunes on Twitter on October 12.

“Everybody is playing like mad and the songs crush. [Producer] Bob Rock brought the sounds. Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds.”

Hollywood Bad Boys – Mötley Crüe

A post shared by Mötley Crüe (@motleycrue) on

These recordings will mark the Crue’s first new music since the 2015 single “All Bad Things,” which was the same year the rock icons played the final shows of their farewell tour. Yes, the quartet hung up their touring boots for good three years ago — and they even signed official contracts saying that they will never hit the road all together as Motley Crue ever again. But they never said they wouldn’t create new music as a foursome.

Meanwhile, bass player Sixx is also working on an adaptation of his 2007 autobiography, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, for the Broadway stage.

New ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer: Carol Danvers Is Reborn as a Kree

As promised, the new “Captain Marvel” trailer was released by Marvel Studios on Monday, December 3 during Monday Night Football. While the first trailer offered a broad idea of the storyline, the second one gives an extended look at the titular hero’s origin and her mission on Earth.

The video opens with Brie Larson‘s titular character fighting a no-ordinary old woman on a train. The footage then flashes back to the time Carol Danvers’ plane crash lands on Hala, the Kree home planet, and she is saved by being turned into one of them, which is how she gets the power.

Upon returning to Earth, Carol confides to Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) that she keeps having visions about her time on Earth, but can’t remember her past. “I think I had a life here,” she says as she looks into document probably about herself.”

There’s also a glimpse of Carol’s childhood, while Carol asks someone unseen, “Why aren’t you telling me?” Jude Law‘s mysterious character is seen telling her, “You’ve come a long way. They’re not as strong as you think.”

But when she finally understands her place on Earth, Carol is taking part in the war against the invaders and is determined to end it. Hence she fully transforms into Captain Marvel with a blue-and-red costume, which she wears complete with the helmet toward the end of the video.

Based on Marvel Comics, “Captain Marvel” follows Carol Danvers, who was an accomplished Air Force pilot before she left her earthly life behind to join the elite military team Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. Carol is back on Earth when the Skrulls plan an invasion of Earth.

Djimon Hounsou reprises his “Guardians of the Galaxy” role as Korath, Gemma Chan plays Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn stars as the Skrulls leader Talos, Lashana Lynch portrays Carol’s old friend Maria “Photon” Rambeau, and Annette Bening joins the cast in an undisclosed role.

Meanwhile, recent report said that Law is possibly playing Yon-Rogg. Instead of an ally to Carol, the new revelation suggested that he would villainize the upcoming movie. In the comic books, Yon-Rogg is a member of the Kree military force and serves as a military commander. He hates Mar-Vell and makes multiple attempts to disgrace him among the Kree or to outright kill him.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck direct the movie, which is written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. It is set for a March 8, 2019 release in the United States.

‘Friends’ To Remain On Netflix Through 2019

Netflix is putting to rest fears that Friends would be leaving the streaming service as of Jan. 1, 2019. Netflix just confirmed via tweet that the hit Warner Bros. TV-produced comedy series will remain on the site through 2019.

There have been questions about Friends’ future on the streaming service amid Warner Media’s plans to launch a competing service.

BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield suggested back in October that Friends could leave Netflix for the WarnerMedia service.

The Warner Bros. Television show first aired in 1994 and ran for 10 seasons on NBC. The show’s appeal is undiminished, all these years later. The measurement firm Parrot Analytics said it’s the third most popular sitcom in the U.S., behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine (#1) and Big Bang Theory (#2).

Coronation Street's Alan Halsall shares amusing throwback to celebrate 20 years on the show

Coronation Street‘s Alan Halsall has shared an amusing throwback picture to celebrate 20 years on the show.

The actor, who has played Tyrone Dobbs on the soap since 1998, took to Instagram on Saturday (December 1) to post an image of himself appearing on the programme for the first time.

Suffice to say, he looked a bit different back then.

View this post on Instagram

20 years ago on this very night I sat and watched myself on @coronationstreet for the very 1st time. They say time flies when you’re having fun that saying certainly applies here !! 20 years on I still love my job just as much as I did on day 1 🙌 So proud to be a small part of this show 📺

A post shared by Alan Halsall (@alanhalsall) on

He wrote in the caption: “20 years ago on this very night I sat and watched myself on Coronation Street for the very first time. They say time flies when you’re having fun. That saying certainly applies here! 20 years on I still love my job just as much as I did on day one. So proud to be a small part of this show.”

In his latest storyline, Tyrone was faced with making a major decision over the troublesome Hope tonight (December 3), finally realising that her bad behaviour can’t go on.

Hope (Isabella Flanagan) has been causing problems for her family for most of the year, but Tyrone and Fiz have often appeared to bury their heads in the sand when it comes to tackling the issue.

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.

I'm a Celebrity's Declan Donnelly jokes about viewers' backpack conspiracy theory live on air

Just days after some alleged that Noel Edmonds’ exit was a FIX, people had another I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! conspiracy theory they were claiming was stone-cold fact.

Yesterday’s (December 2) episode saw Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer leave the camp, and because he was wearing a backpack at the time, viewers were convinced that the celebrities had been told in advance who was leaving.

ITV confirmed to Digital Spy that this wasn’t the case, as the celebs have no idea of the results before Dec and Holly read them out, and they can choose to prep and wear backpacks in advance or not.

Furthermore, tonight’s (November 3) episode saw Declan Donnelly reference the ‘scandal’.

After Holly told viewers they would decide who would go, Dec said, “Well, if the conspiracy theories are anything to go by, whoever’s got their backpack on!” and did the old shifty eyes.

Later on, we saw Holly and Dec head down to camp and reveal live that Sair Khan was the third campmate to leave the show, and she didn’t even have a backpack on!

Unfortunately, that didn’t stop the theories (though we’re assuming these are jokes… right?):

Rebekah Vardy recently claimed that the programme is scripted and that campmates are told to discuss certain topics round the fire, but Jake Quickenden denied those claims in an exclusive chat with Digital Spy.

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! continues on Tuesday (December 4) at 9pm on ITV, followed directly after by Extra Camp over on ITV2.

Friends is NOT leaving Netflix UK, so talking about it is a moo point

Whether Ross and Rachel were on a break or not is still a bone of contention to this day, but we can assure you that Friends and Netflix are most definitely not going on a break next year.

The Holiday Armadillo brought those good tidings on Monday (December 3) to fans in both the US and the UK, confirming that any bad vibes you’ve been getting from Gunther about your favourite show leaving Netflix are not true.

“The Holiday Armadillo has granted your wish: Friends will still be there for you in the US throughout 2019,” American fans were told, while those in the UK were assured: “The One Where Friends is Going Nowhere, Don’t Worry.”

All of this panic started setting in after fans realised that there was less than a month to go until the supposed cutoff of the show leaving Netflix, seemingly forever.

It was reported back in October that Warner Bros was going to pull Friends from all streaming services in 2019 because it plans to launch its own standalone service in the near future.

While the WB is planning to roll out its own streamer soon, that doesn’t mean that it’s yanking Friends from Netflix… at this point. Your Smelly Cat and Drake Ramoray are safe for the moment.

That’s definitely good news, since the cast and writers have made it crystal clear time and time (and time, and time, and time, and time, and time, and time) again that a revival series is probably never going to happen.

Where Can You Buy a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree This Year?

 A Charlie Brown Christmas is a beloved holiday classic. One of the best moments in the 30-minute animated special is when Charlie Brown passes over the trendy aluminum Christmas trees in favor of a scraggly little tree that “seems to need a home.”

The tree is so little that hanging a single ornament on it makes it bend toward the ground, causing Charlie Brown to cry out, “I’ve killed it. Everything I touch gets ruined.” Fortunately, his friends come together to save the tree, decorating it with ornaments and lights from Snoopy’s doghouse.

Ever since the Peanuts special aired in 1965, Charlie Brown’s awkward little tree has served as a reminder to not forget the true meaning of Christmas amidst the relentless commercialism of the holiday season.

Where to get your own Charlie Brown Christmas tree

A Charlie Brown Christmas might have a message about not getting too caught up in the spend-spend-spend mentality that hits every December. But that hasn’t stopped people from capitalizing on its most iconic image to make a buck. These days, if you can’t find your own scrawny Charlie Brown tree to rescue, you can buy one.

Dozens of retailers sell artificial versions of the iconic Peanuts Christmas tree. A 24-inch version complete with a single red ornament and Linus’s blanket wrapped around the base is $7.99 at Amazon.

Hammacher Schlemmer also sells a 24-inch Charlie Brown Christmas tree that plays the memorable Vince Guaraldi tune from the TV special. It’s normally $29.95 but is currently on sale for $9.95.

Versions of the tree are also for sale at Bed Bath & Beyond, Vermont Country Store, Urban Outfitters, and Home Depot.

In addition to the Charlie Brown tree, you can also buy a replica of Snoopy’s award-winning doghouse from Bed Bath & Beyond or a recording of A Charlie Brown Christmas with the Vince Guaraldi Trio on vinyl from the Vermont Country Store.

Can you still buy aluminum Christmas trees?

While A Charlie Brown Christmas was an instant favorite when it first aired in the mid-1960s, there was one group that wasn’t so in love with the special: The makers of aluminum Christmas trees. The Peanuts program “nearly single-handedly broke the aluminum Christmas tree industry,” according to David Murray of the Great Falls Tribune.

Sales of the colorful artificial trees had been booming before A Charlie Brown Christmas aired. People bought about 150,000 trees in 1964, the year before the Peanuts special debuted. But after the show, the metallic trees became a symbol of the crass commercialism of the holiday season. Sales plummeted (not helped by the introduction of more realistic looking artificial trees). By 1970, the main manufacturer had ceased making the aluminum trees.

Of course, what goes around comes around, and a few decades later nostalgic baby boomers and their retro-obsessed kids were on the hunt for the trees. Today, vintage Evergleam aluminum trees can sell on eBay for hundreds of dollars. Modern versions, like a vintage-style one from Etsy, a prelit silver tree from Hayneedle, or a trendy rose gold version from Walmart are also available, though they may not be made out of aluminum.

'The Innocent Man' Trailer: Netflix Continues to Satisfy Your True Crime Craving

If there’s one thing Netflix has learned, it’s that people love to watch true crime. It’s an obsession that can’t accurately be explained – time and time again, we tune into grisly stories of horrible real-life murders, and watch rapt, like moths to a flame. In the spirit of giving the people what they want, Netflix is about to debut The Innocent Man, a new docu-series based on John Grishams only true crime book. Watch The Innocent Man trailer below.

The Innocent Man Trailer

In 2010, John Grisham – an author well-known for his fiction focused on lawyers – published his one and only true crime story, The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town. The book focuses on Ron Williamson, who seemed destine to become a major league baseball player. But his dreams of sports stardom were shattered, leading to a spiral filled with drinking and drugs. In 1982, a cocktail waitress was murdered close to Ron’s home, and Ron was eventually convicted of the crime and sentenced to death. But the evidence was flimsy and even tainted. This sounds very similar to Netflix’s Making a Murderer, but Ron Williamson’s guilt (or lack thereof) seems a lot more cut and dry than Steven Avery’s.

Based on the footage here, The Innocent Man is following heavily in the footsteps of the iconic true crime doc The Thin Blue Line, in which an innocent was sent to jail for murdering a cop. The blend of news clippings and stylish re-enactments have become commonplace for true crime, but The Thin Blu Line pioneered them.

The Innocent Man is streaming globally on Netflix December 14, 2018.

In a story that gained national attention with John Grisham’s best-selling non-fiction book, The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town, the six-part documentary series The Innocent Man focuses on two murders that shook the small town of Ada, Oklahoma, in the 1980s — and the controversial chain of events that followed.

Directed by Clay Tweel (Finders KeepersGleasonOut of Omaha), The Innocent Man includes interviews with victims’ friends and families, Ada residents, attorneys, journalists, and others involved in the cases. (Grisham appears, as does attorney Barry Scheck, co-director of the Innocence Project.) Developed as a documentary series by Tweel and Ross Dinerstein, it blends new footage with compelling archival video and photos. The series is produced by Maura Anderson and Shannon Riggs. Executive producers are John Grisham, David Gernert, Tweel and Dinerstein.
