The New Halloween Was Originally Going To Kill Dr. Loomis



The new Halloween ignores all the previous sequels, but it almost approached the original film in a very different way as well. It turns out that the original version of the new film’s script, written by Danny McBride, Jeff Fradley, and director David Gordon Green, would have essentially rewritten the ending of the original Halloween, and in the process would have killed Dr. Loomis, the psychiatrist played in the original horror classic by Donald Pleasance who finally stops Michael Myers.

In the climax of the original film, Dr. Loomis, who has been following Michael Myers’ path of destruction since the beginning of the film, sees a pair of children running from a house in fear. He finds Michael Myers attacking Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode and shoots Michael multiple times, eventually knocking him off a balcony onto the ground. He speaks briefly with Laurie, before looking back down at the ground and seeing that Michael is gone.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the original opening of the new Halloween would have recreated this sequence, but with some major changes. After Loomis enters the bedroom where Michael and Laurie are, Michael attacks Loomis, causing the doctor to drop his gun. Myers strangles Loomis to death before Laurie picks up the gun and shoots Michael, causing him to fall from the balcony. In the next scene, the police arrive and take Michael into custody.

Apparently, the decision to not include this opening was made at the request of John Carpenter himself, who felt the change would be a mistake that the audience wouldn’t like.

All in all, Carpenter was probably right. It’s one thing to erase all of the sequels from continuity for the new Halloween, but changing the way the original ended would probably be a bridge too far for fans. If the story is going to be drastically changed then part of the value of making the new movie a sequel in the first place is lost.

Still, it’s understandable why the new Halloween might have considered this. Dr. Loomis certainly isn’t going to be a major character in the new film, and Jamie Lee Curtis is. The Laurie Strode of the new film is a character that takes action but the one from the original film is little more than a victim. Showing her as a more proactive character in the opening flashback would have better set the stage for the version of the character we see in the new movie.

None of this is to say that Dr. Loomis won’t appear in the new Halloween. It’s already been reported that the character will be given voice in at least one scene in the movie. More than likely we’ll learn what the doctor’s ultimate fate was, though it will certainly have happened sometime after the events of the original movie.

Chris Hemsworth Seems Pumped About The New Men In Black As Production Wraps



It’s been over two decades since the first Men in Black came out and six years since the franchise seemingly came to a close with Men in Black 3, but there is still alien activity in need of policing and the agents in black are returning to do just that in next year’s spinoff. One of the stars of the new film, Chris Hemsworth, has wrapped filming and he seems pumped for audiences to see the new Men in Black. Check it out.

It is strange to see Thor without his beard, but I guess when you mess up your one job and half the universe dies, a new career and a new look can give you a fresh start. Chris Hemsworth seems excited to show fans this new Men in Black and it looks and sound like they all had a blast filming F. Gary Gray’s movie. Hopefully, that comes through onscreen in a spinoff that lives up to the original.

Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson certainly seem like the dynamic duo in this Instagram post and the few images we’ve seen from set. Their interactions and banter were some of the highlights of Thor: Ragnarok and it will be exciting to see how their Men in Black agents play off one another like Jay and Kay before them.

What’s also interesting is that Chris Hemsworth mentions all the different locations they filmed in during production. Filming in London, Morocco, Italy and New York City makes it seem like this new Men in Black will be much more of a global journey than what we’ve seen before from this franchise, showing that the aliens aren’t just confined to the island of Manhattan.

This is affirmed in the small details we know about the plot. MIB is expected to follow agents from the London branch of the Men in Black as they solve a murder mystery, presumably involving aliens, which will take them on a global adventure. The head of that UK branch will be none other than the possessor of a very particular set of skills, one Liam Neeson.

With Chris Hemsworth wrapped on the film, that hopefully means we’ll get some official looks at the spinoff in the form of stills or a teaser before too long. Heck, we’ve been calling it the Men in Black Spinoff or MIB but this movie hasn’t even revealed its official title yet.

MIB or whatever it’s called, stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson as well as Mission: Impossible Fallout‘s Rebecca Ferguson, Emma Thompson, Rafe Spall and Kumail Nanjiani.

Sony’s as-yet-untitled Men in Black film makes this look good on June 14, 2019. That’s just one of a whole host of reasons you might as well just move into your local theater next year, check them all out in our 2019 release schedule.

Mushtaq Sheikh ACCUSED of sexually harassing Pratyusha Banerjee’s ex Rahul Raj Singh

Just as India’s Me Too movement is getting momentum with every passing day, new faces and cases are coming to light. While we were shocked with names like Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Nana Patekar coming out, here is a man accusing screen writer Mushtaq Sheikh of sexually harassing him under the pretext of giving him a role in a film. The victim is none other than late television actress’s ex boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh. In a detailed account, he has stated how he was abused by Sheikh since 2004 and ruined his career after he refused to give in to his advances. He stated that just after Rahul had won pageant, Mushtaq approached him and made an offer and started contacting him with regard to the same. Rahul said that Mushtaq repeatedly called him to his flat and once even forced himself upon him while driving through deserted Array Colony Road in Mumbai.

Mushtaq Sheikh ACCUSED of sexually harassing Pratyusha Banerjee’s ex Rahul Raj Singh

Rahul is the first man from the industry to come out with his story. He said that he has nothing to be ashamed of and he wants the truth to come out. Rahul was in the news two years ago after his girlfriend Pratyusha Banerjee commited suicide in their shared flat and he was held by police for the abetment of suicide. Since then, there hasn’t been much news about him till this time.

Rahul has set an example by coming forward and talking about harassment meted out to him, demonstrating that the movement is not gender specific. The industry is also taking cognizance of this matter and is taking all Me Too allegations very seriously.

Red Dead Redemption 2 India Release Date May Be Delayed


Red Dead Redemption 2’s India release date may be delayed. The hotly anticipated open-world adventure from Rockstar Games is out on October 26 though most of India may get it a couple of days later. Several customers tipped off Gadgets 360 that the stores they pre-ordered it from had told them that they were given “special instructions from Rockstar” to ship the game on release date only. Red Dead Redemption 2’s India distributor is E-xpress and its warehouse is based in Mumbai. What this means is, unless you reside in Mumbai, you may not get the game on time. As the game is out on a Friday, those outside of Mumbai may get it on Saturday or Monday at the earliest.

This development follows gaming blog Kotaku’s report on independent game retailers in the US not getting Red Dead Redemption 2 on release day. Incidentally, bigger chains like Gamestop and Best Buy will be selling the game a day prior. In India however, it seems that only specific game stores have been informed of this delay. Neither Rockstar Games nor its distributor E-xpress have replied to Gadgets 360’s request for comment on a possible delay for the game. The stores speaking to Gadgets 360 however, have confirmed this is the case.

Nonetheless, this is not new. Rockstar has in the past, put in place strict release date restrictions on India. GTA V on PS3 and Xbox 360 for example, was shipped late due to “publisher regulations” at the time. And before this, GTA IV was delayed due to a shortage as India was not a high priority market back then. Judging by the restrictions in place now, it seems little has changed.

There are exceptions however. Other games such as WWE 2K19 for example, released early in India. Instead of being out on October 9, it was on store shelves from October 5 thanks to a street date break in the Middle East. Only if Red Dead Redemption 2 leaks early and Rockstar allows distributors to release the game because of it, is there a slight chance that this may not come to pass. And before you think buying it digitally is the answer, be prepared for a 90GB download, which essentially breaks the FUP of most Indian gamers.

2018 has been a disappointing year for Indian gamers in terms of availability. God of War on PS4 for example, had its special editions delayed due to logistical reasons while another PS4 exclusive, Spider-Man saw Sony inexplicably cancel its steelbook variant despite allowing retailers to take pre-orders and while the Spider-Man PS4 Collector’s Edition is still expected the company remains noncommittal as to when it would actually arrive.

Meg Ryan’s Son Waited Forever To Watch When Harry Met Sally Because Of The Orgasm Scene



Thirty-some years later, actress Meg Ryan is still best known for her string of rom-coms penned by Nora Ephron, including her pair-ups with Tom Hanks in You’ve Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle. At the climax of her career, 1989’s When Harry Met Sally… came out and is still considered to be one of the best of all time for the genre. Recently, Ryan’s son with Dennis Quaid, 26-year-old son Jack Quaid, admitted that he actually steered clear of his mom’s famous role until recently because of one iconic scene. In his words:

While it’s understandably embarrassing to have a movie out there with your mom faking an orgasm in a busy New York restaurant in front of Billy Crystal, let’s face it, he couldn’t avoid the flick forever. The smart and hilarious When Harry Met Sally… is perhaps Meg Ryan’s best film and most unforgettable role. Jack Quaid also revealed that he had a heartfelt reaction to finally witnessing Ryan’s iconic role to Entertainment Weekly, continuing with:

The 1987 film Innerspace, which stars both of his parents, is also a strange one for Jack Quaid to revisit. It’s the movie where the pair met and ironically enough, one of the other main characters (played by Martin Short) shares his name, Jack. When speaking about his connection with Innerspace, Quaid said he does realize that he probably wouldn’t have been born if Innerspace wasn’t made, so he can’t complain too much about that one. It’s really rare to be able to see your parents at the height of their careers, but Quaid has a unique ability to because of their high-profile jobs.

Jack Quaid is currently an up-and-coming star who has nabbed supporting roles here and there since his first role as one of the tributes in 2012’s The Hunger Games. This year he’s also had small roles in Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage and the animated film Smallfoot. In 2019, Quaid will make the transition into starring roles in the Amazon Prime television series The Boys and in romantic-comedy Plus One.

The Boys has Quaid starring in a superhero comic book adaptation created by the likes of Seth Rogen about a super-powered CIA squad tasked with keeping corrupted heroes in line. On the other hand, Plus One looks like a sweet love story about two longtime single friends who decide to brave a summer of weddings together as each other’s plus ones. Neither of the projects have an official release date, but you can expect them both sometime in 2019.

After Shweta Pandit, more women come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Anu Malik


‘);
});

The #MeToo movement has taken down many big names from different industries. As women have come forward to tell their sexual harassment stories, it has reached the Indian film industry where many have been accused of sexual harassment, abuse and misconduct. Just recently, singer Shweta Pandit accused music composer Anu Malik of sexual harassment and recalled an incident that has stayed with her since her teen years. Meanwhile, more women have come forward with their stories against Anu Malik.

After Shweta Pandit, more women come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Anu Malik

One woman has accused him of rubbing his body against her and when she expressed her shock, he apologized meekly. This dates back to the 90s when she had met the music composer while he was recording a song. The same woman met him another time at his residence to discuss a fundraiser event. After the discussion was over, he allegedly made inappropriate sexual advances towards her which really made her uncomfortable. She tried to leave but he held her hand and then apologized saying that he was a really passionate guy. Detailing the incident, the women revealed that he unzipped his pants and asked her to lick him. When she said no and told him that she wanted to leave, he allegedly pulled her back by her hair and stuffed her face in his lap while hurling abuses.

Another woman, who has accused Anu Malik, has alleged that she refused to be a part of Indian Idol 10 as a wild card entry as she was sexual harassed by the music composer seven years ago. It happened during her struggling days when she had met the composer at Sahara Studios in Mumbai. During their second meeting, he asked her whether she had a boyfriend. When she was leaving, he allegedly pulled her back and hugged her while running his hands over her body. When she pushed him away, he said that he was a happy with his wife but he is a sensitive man.

In her lengthy post, Shweta Pandit had earlier revealed that he had asked her for a kiss on his cheek when she was merely 15 years old. Describing the incident on Twitter, Shweta wrote, “He was recording a group song with Sunidhi and Shaan for the film ‘Awara Pagal Deewana’, when my mother and I walked in the monitor room. He told me to wait in the small cabin inside where singers sang at Empire studio. It was just him and me there. I sang it well so he said, ‘I’ll give you this song with Sunidhi and Shaan but first give me a kiss now’. He then smiled, what I’d recall the most evil grin I’ve seen. I went numb and pale in the face. I was only 15 years old then, still in school”.

Anu Malik’s legal representative has released his statement and denied all the allegations. The statement read, “The allegations made against my client are emphatically denied as completely false and baseless. My client respects the #metoo movement but to use this movement to start a character assassination mission is obnoxious.”
