Stallone's Ex-Wife Brigitte Nelson Calls Sexual Assault Claims a Lie
Though Brigitte Nielsen and Sylvester Stallone have reportedly not spoken in 30 years and had a publicly tumultuous relationship, the former model/actress has come forward to deny the allegations that Stallone coerced a 16-year old girl into a threesome with his old bodyguard 31 years ago. Nielsen, who costarred with Stallone in Rocky IV and Cobra, claimed that the two were very much "newlyweds" when the alleged incident occurred in Las Vegas in 1986. The two were married between 1985 and 1987. Sylvester Stallone spoke out immediately after the story broke to vehemently deny the allegations.

A Las Vegas police report alleged that Sylvester Stallone forced a 16-year old female fan to have a threesome with he and his former bodyguard, Mike De Luca, during the shooting of Over the Top. After allegedly forcing the girl to give oral sex to he and De Luca, the former bodyguard than had sex with her. After the alleged incident was over,

Ivan Drago’s son seemingly confirmed for Creed 2

Back when there were rumblings that Dolph Lundgren’s Rocky IV antagonist Ivan Drago would be returning for Creed 2, rumours were circulating that Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed would see himself going up against son of his father’s killer, and it looks like those reports may now have been confirmed.

Speaking to MMAFighting.com, Mma star Sage Northcutt revealed the following:

“The new Creed II movie is coming out so I was actually going to audition for that. Got a little audition tape, so hopefully that goes through. That would be pretty neat. Being Ivan Drago’s son in the movie? That would be pretty fun. Sylvester Stallone seems like a really cool guy, and Dolph Lundgren seems awesome. I think me and Mr. Dolph Lundgren look kind of alike.”

Creed 2 is sounding more like Rocky IV

Simon Brew Nov 9, 2017

Creed 2 now sounds like it's casting for Ivan Drago's son...

The sequel to the Oscar-nominated Creed appears to be taking a turn very much towards Rocky IV territory. To a degree, it was already heading in that direction. Dolph Lundgren is set to reprise the role of Ivan Drago in the movie, Sylvester Stallone is expected to appear as Rocky Balboa. What’s more, Stallone is also writing and directing the Creed sequel too (having helmed Rocky IV), that will see Michael B Jordan reprise the role of Adonis Creed.

But now we learn that Ivan Drago’s son is going to be a character in the movie, courtesy of Mma fighter Sage Northcutt.

In a new interview, Northcutt said that “the new Creed 2 movie is coming out so I was actually going to audition for that. Got a little audition tape so hopefully that goes through.

Creed 2 Will Unleash Ivan Drago's Son
Things are finally coming together for Creed 2. And in a hurry. After quite a long time of not really knowing or hearing anything about the movie, the project has its team in place and is racing toward a premiere date in theaters next November. We've known for a little while that Dolph Lundgren will be back as Ivan Drago, but now we might have confirmation that the character's son will be a big part of the sequel. It looks like Mma fighter Sage Northcutt spilled the beans, as he's set to audition for the role.

Ever since Sylvester Stallone posted a not-so-subtle image to his Instagram teasing the return of Ivan Drago in Creed 2, many have assumed that the son of Drago would be stepping into the ring to fight Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Creed. While we still can't absolutely confirm that will be the central plot of Creed 2, we're one step closer to that,

A Bad Moms Christmas review

Meet the comedy sequel with more montages than Rocky IV: it's A Bad Moms Christmas...

If you didn’t know going into seeing A Bad Moms Christmas that this was a sequel scrambled together in double-quick time, you could soon figure it out. It’s a hodgepodge of half-formed characters, erratic narrative pace, and parts of story that just about smash together to make something okay. That it does so is no small achievement, but it’s worth stating from the off that the comedy heights of last year’s Bad Moms are rarely troubled.

The idea this time is that the Bad MomsMila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn – each have their own Bad Moms to put up with. Respectively, they get Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon. Baranski gets to play the overbearing, everything has to be perfect one. Hines is the clingy, living her life through her daughter mother.

Creed 2 Release Date Announced
After months of speculation, Sylvester Stallone's Creed 2 now has an official release date of November 18th, 2018. Stallone has previously been cryptic about the follow-up, but he announced earlier this month that he will direct and produce the sequel that will see the return of star Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa's late friend and previous rival, Apollo Creed. Sylvester Stallone will reprise his role as Creed's trainer and mentor in the upcoming continuation of the Rocky franchise, which has been eagerly awaited ever since there were rumblings of it officially happening.

Sylvester Stallone has been hinting at a 2018 theatrical release for Creed 2 over the last few months, even before the movie was greenlit. Taking a cue from Creed, the sequel will hit theaters right before Thanksgiving, on November 18th, 2018. MGM revealed the news. The release date will see the movie go toe

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

The Awesome Reason There was a Robot in the Movie “Rocky IV”

There was a pretty cool reason why there was a robot in Rocky 4, and it really had nothing to do with Paulie. Instead, Stallone’s son Seargeoh, who is autistic, was found to respond better to the robot than with people. After having found this out Stallone incorporated the robot into the movie in order to have it on set so as to help with his son. This seems like a very cool thing of Stallone to have done since having an autistic child isn’t the end of the world but it does make life a little more difficult since

Jean-Luc Godard’s Bewitchingly Self-Reflexive Midlife Crisis

Emerging from his politically radical period of low-budget, didactic political commentaries with revolutionary overtones, produced primarily on 16mm or tape for television broadcast, prolific French avant-garde iconoclast Jean-Luc Godard unexpectedly returned to commercial filmmaking with Every Man for Himself, finding reinvention in the age of video — a new formal frontier for the now-middle-aged provocateur. Godard’s star-studded return to more conventional cinemas, featuring Isabelle Huppert, Nathalie Baye, and Jacques Dutronc as Paul Godard (of course), a loathsome filmmaker humiliated by having been reduced to working for a TV studio, though shy of being considered a phenomenon in France or elsewhere, was well-publicized worldwide. Uncharacteristically, the aging filmmaker promoted the film extensively, pensively referring to it as his “second first film,” a somewhat deadpan admission that, to begin again, he had to shed the baggage of his underground period. Through this mainstream amelioration began a self-reflective period of filmmaking, reverse-engineering his formal fascinations — disruptive non-linear editing,

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Rocky IV

You’d seen Rocky take on someone bigger than him before, but this was akin to a true David and Goliath story. Ivan Drago was almost twice Rocky’s size and could punch hard enough to send your heart bouncing against your backbone if he connected. Just watching Rocky take on the big Russian and, in some ways, the very government of the nation he’d wandered into, was inspiring in some ways until you took a look at the beating he was taking. Worse still is the fact that Sylvester Stallone was really taking some of those shots. Doing his own stunts

Sylvester Stallone on to Direct Creed 2

After delivering an Oscar nominated performance in Creed, Rocky himself (Sylvester Stallone) will stand in the director’s corner for the follow-up. The announcement came via his Instagram account, as the film begins pre-production.

Creed came as a surprise to many. A film linked to a dying franchise, with a relatively obscure director and an actor coming off a box office bomb, many would be forgiven for thinking the film might not pack a punch (pun very much intended). But Creed defied expectations and pumped life into a franchise that no longer seemed relevant. It landed its director, Ryan Coogler, a Marvel movie and confirmed Michael B. Jordan’s star status.

Whilst many would have liked to see Coogler return to the director’s chair, the prospect of Stallone returning to direct the franchise he created is a tantalising one. This return to old ways also bleeds through to the

Filming is expected to get underway early in the New Year.

Creed 2 Begins Shooting This February
Rocky and Adonis are finally coming back. And this time, they're bringing Ivan Drago with them. After a pretty long delay, work is finally getting underway for Creed 2, as the highly-anticipated sequel is set to begin filming in February of 2018. No director has been announced yet, but since Ryan Coogler should be done with his commitments to Black Panther by then, it seems likely that he'll return to helm the sequel.

The news comes to us courtesy of My Entertainment World and the site states that Creed 2 is slated to begin production on February 5, 2018, in Philadelphia. Not a whole lot more information was provided, but the side does provide a very brief synopsis for the sequel, which reads, "Adonis Creed tries to seek revenge when he goes toe to toe with the man who killed his father." Those of you who know the Rocky franchise know that means that Ivan

The Great British Bake Off 2017, episode four – as it happened

Caramel week in the tent. But who met a sticky end?

Well there we go. The thoroughly well-deserved Star Bakersanship award goes to Kate, while, in a surprise to no one, Tom’s back on the sleeper to Edinburgh. Is he from Edinburgh? Who cares. He’s from somewhere, and he’s back there now. Thanks to all of you for the Btl bantz, armchair psychology and comments subsequently removed by a moderator.

Netflix’s latest eight-episode series nearly became just that.

Goon: Last Of The Enforcers review

The long-awaited sequel to Goon arrives in UK cinemas. It ain't essential, but it's fun...

“I’m not as tough as I used to be.”

Goon: Last of the Enforcers, the sequel to 2011s Goon, is a film about the world changing. The new owner of the Halifax Highlanders has expectations of the team and he’ll bring new players in to achieve them. The new kids coming into the league are something else; all-rounders, and some of them can really fight. Bruiser Doug Glatt’s home life is pulling him away from the game, and his body can hardly keep up with it anymore. So what exactly is a displaced hockey goon supposed to do?

There’s a weird tragedy bubbling beneath the surface of Goon 2, but it’s never really dealt with. The subject of head injuries and being so drawn to and entertained by the violence that causes them,
