Mike Tyson Is Getting His Own Web Series On YouTube

24 February 2017 2:14 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The latest aging celebrity to come to YouTube is Mike Tyson. The one-time heavyweight champion of the world will star in a web series that will see release on his YouTube channel and will be produced by the team at Shots Studios.

The goal, as noted in a Variety article, is to produce at least two videos for Tyson’s channel each month. Shots is galvanized by the success the former boxer has seen on YouTube in 2017. In January, he starred alongside another Shots client, ex-Vine standout Rudy Mancuso, in a video that received more than 2.1 million views. Four days later, the first video on Tyson’s channel, in which he performed a dis rap while other performers lip synced along to the words, also cracked two million hits.

Since retiring from boxing in 2006, Tyson has managed to establish himself as an entertainer thanks to a few memorable roles. He »

Know what’s amazing about the Nes back in the 80s?  If you were a player of that system and I asked you to name every game you ever owned, you could do it.  If I were to ask you to hum the theme song to Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, you could do it.  If I asked you to spit out the secret code that gets you unlimited lives in Contra, remember?  Up down up down……I don’t even need to go over the rest. Nes has a special place in my heart so whenever I get to hear or see something

Anne Heche and Sandra Oh get in the ring for the first Catfight trailer & poster

15 February 2017 2:11 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

There’s nothing like watching a couple of old school friends beating the hell out of each other to completely de-stress right? That’s exactly what you get in the trailer for Catfight when the claws come out and it’s all out war between these vixens until the roles are reversed and they go right back at it again.

Written and Directed by Turkish-American filmmaker Onur Tuke, who wrote and directed 2014’s vampire comedy Summer of Blood, brings his touch of black comedy to Catfight with an intriguing premise. Starring Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh (Sideways) and Seven Days Seven Nights and Donnie Brasco star Anne Heche, who go at it like Mike Tyson and Frank Bruno on a bad day. The ladies deliver a knockout punch in the trailer making this look like riotous and mindless fun.

Providing some much-needed backup is Alicia Silverstone as Ashley’s lesbian love interest, »

Avengers: Infinity War Concept Art Shows Thanos, Rocket and Thor

11 February 2017 10:32 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Late last night, Marvel dropped an exciting sneak peek at Avengers: Infinity War. And while it did give us our first look at Iron Man, Spider-Man and Star-Lord on set together, it also showed off some intriguing new fan art. Two of the pieces show Josh Brolin as the main character Thanos. And another piece, that is sure to get fans salivating, has Rocket Raccoon teaming up with Thor. We've collected these image from the video and embedded them below along with the videos that were released like tiny Marvel presents in the middle of the night.

Thanos was first introduced as a smirking purple alien sitting in a floating chair at the end of 2012's Avengers. Ever since, fans have been waiting for this hulking menace to make his presence fully known. Josh Brolin, who plays the character, did show up for a more substantial role in Guardians of the Galaxy. »

Comic Book Review – Justice League vs. Suicide Squad

29 January 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jessie Robertson reviews Justice League vs. Suicide Squad (with spoilers)…

When DC Comics initiated Rebirth some months ago, it brought a lot of fans out of the New 52 funk they’d been in for several years; it realigned the universe back to the its original state, in most cases, and brought you versions of characters you loved instead of the complete rebranding New 52 brought to a lot of these characters (except of course, Batman….because he’s Batman.) This was touted as the first “event” of Rebirth, and was set to feature the two most popular and brand-recognized teams at this point as DC begins to launch its cinematic universe. I think my initial reaction was the same as a lot of fans: “How in the hell can the Suicide Squad stand up to the Justice League?” Well, as with most things in comics, it’s a swerve. Yes, there is a battle and no, »

Tupac Biopic Gets Summer 2017 Release Date

17 January 2017 1:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a long time in development and a lot of uncertainty, the Tupac Shakur biopic is finally coming to theaters. Morgan Creek Entertainment recently closed a deal with Lionsgate's Summit Entertainment, who are now going to be releasing All Eyez On me. As exciting as that is, even more exciting for fans of the late rapper is that the movie is coming out this summer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, All Eyez On Me is set to for release on June 16, which puts it right in the heart of the summer movie season. What makes that date even more interesting is that it will mark what would have been Tupac's 46th birthday. Sadly, he died at the age of 25 after he was shot down as he was driving away from a Mike Tyson boxing match on September 7, 1996. He died six days later from four bullet wounds that hit him in his chest, »

Martin Scorsese’s Mike Tyson Biopic Still A Go, Jamie Foxx Confirms

11 January 2017 7:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This week, Jamie Foxx will make his return to the big screen in Sleepless. Though it admittedly looks like a rather generic crime thriller – and has been dumped in January, which isn’t an encouraging sign – it’ll be nice to see the Oscar winner back in theatres. The actor’s been taking it easy lately, not having starred in a film since 2014’s mediocre Annie. It seems that he’s now back in full force though, with several exciting projects on his slate that we’re definitely looking forward to.

One of those happens to be a biopic about Mike Tyson. Believe it or not, the iconic boxing legend has never really had a notable feature film made about his life, despite it being quite ripe for cinematic adaptation. However, Foxx is looking to change all that. For a while now we’ve heard that he’d be starring »

8 January 2017 8:21 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Soulja Boy and Chris Brown's feud just even more personal as they prepare for their big fight. The two, who have collaborated on music in the past, exchanged harsh words on social media last week and 50 Cent helped arrange a pay-per-view boxing match.

On Sunday, after learning Mike Tyson was going to train Brown for the match, Soulja Boy said his fight against the singer was "for Rihanna." In 2009, Brown was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service for attacking Rihanna, his then-girlfriend.
