Over 150,000 people were at this year’s Glastonbury while the number of stay-at-home festival fans watching on TV and online hit record numbers, reaching almost 21 million.
U.K. public broadcaster the BBC has exclusive rights to the event and covered the event in depth, following the action across all fields and stages, including film star Johnny Depp’s comments about Donald Trump, and, controversially, U.K. opposition party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s Saturday afternoon speech.
The BBC said that 20.9 million watched Glastonbury for three minutes or more, a 12% increase on the 2016 figure. Ed Sheeran’s Sunday night closing set garnered a peak audience of 4.1 million and average 2.9 million, beating previous ratings record holder Elo from last year’s festival.

The ongoing legal battle between Johnny Depp and his former managers at the unimaginatively named The Management Company has seen a lot of the Pirates Of The Caribbean star’s dirty laundry aired. Tmg filed a countersuit against Depp after he sued them for allegedly mishandling his money, thereby screwing him out of millions of dollars. The ex-managers have previously called Depp’s spending and professionalism into question, but their latest claims are a bit more personal in nature. According to People, Tmg’s moved past the “lousy spendthrift and actor” stuff and onto the “abusive turd” area of Depp’s life.
Amber Heard, Depp’s ex-wife, accused him of domestic abuse last May, when she was granted a restraining order. Depp denied that he was abusive, and Heard dropped that claim when they settled their divorce, pledging her $7 million settlement to charity. But in court documents that People »

Two generations of A Star Is Born collided at Glastonbury Friday when, according to Billboard, Bradley Cooper appeared on stage to shoot scenes before a set from Kris Kristofferson. Cooper—who is also directing the remake starring Lady Gaga—is playing a role equivalent to the one that Kristofferson took on in the 1976 version of the story. (If only James Mason and Frederic March could have been around to see this.)
Cooper appeared to jammed out pretty hard—as you can see from the photo above—but NME notes that the audience could not hear what he was playing. So patrons got a silent show before Cooper introduced Kristofferson himself, saying, per Billboard, “You guys were awesome, that was great—it’s my sheer pleasure to introduce Kris Kristofferson.” The 81-year-old’s performance eventually featured a cameo from Johnny Depp—who has already used Glastonbury as an opportunity to »

With all of the crazy news surrounding the Han Solo movie these days, it’s hard to accurately gauge how this movie will turn out. With Phil Lord and Chris Miller actually being fired from the project (apparently because they believed they were making a comedy), and being abruptly replaced with Ron Howard, and even rumors that Han Solo star Alden Ehrenreich took issue with the creative direction of the film… how are fans not supposed to panic?
Well, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger, there is absolutely nothing to fear. Speaking to Screen Rant, the CEO had this to say: “First of all, we have a great cast, we have a great script and we have a great director. It’s gonna be fine. I’m very excited.”

Harrison Abbott on how Universal can save the Dark Universe…
Whilst its international take is admittedly surpassing its domestic performance by quite some way, it is still reasonable to suggest that The Mummy hasn’t been the mega-hit that Universal were hoping for. Weighed down by astonishingly clunky exposition, countless instances of tonal whiplash and a certain high profile ego to contend with (not to mention that embarrassing PR blunder with the trailer audio), the film has been the deserving subject of bad word of mouth and a relentless onslaught of critical maulings. Suffice it to say, it has been something of a rocky journey for the first instalment in the fledgling ”Dark Universe”.
In case you need catching up to speed, this Dark Universe is essentially the latest attempt to revive all of Universal’s classic movie monsters. Many efforts have been made in the past to reboot these characters, »

Universal Studios is hoping that their new “Dark Universe” will be the next McU. So far, they’re off to a weak start. The Tom Cruise action flick The Mummy, which is the official beginning to the “Dark Universe”, is seriously underperforming at the box office. The movie’s poor performance highlights a major miscalculation that will continue to derail the “Dark Universe” unless Universal changes its strategy.
We all know that every studio is trying to copy the success Disney has achieved with its massively profitable McU. Warner Brothers is doing their Dceu; Sony has plans for an expanded “Spider-Verse”, as well as a possible connected film series about Robin Hood and his Merry Men; And Universal is doing their “Dark Universe”. However, as we’re seeing in the last few years, it’s not as easy to create an extended universe as it may seem.

“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone,” the actor said in a statement to People on Friday.
Depp’s joke, in reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865, was made during an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival. “I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living,” he added at the U.K. music festival. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”
Shortly after news broke of Depp’s comments, the White House issued a statement strongly condemning the joke and calling on others in Hollywood to speak out.
“President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like »
