It’s a match that has been rumored for months now, but wasn’t discussed by WWE in public because they wanted to keep Lesnar’s return a surprise. In Raw’s opening segment on Monday, Triple H said that he guaran-damn-teed a new WWE Champion at SummerSlam. We didn’t know who the challenger would be, but we found out in the main event. It appeared as if Hunter’s first choice was Randy Orton. However, Roman Reigns attacked him and they brawled to the backstage area likely to set up a SummerSlam match between these two. That’s when Paul Heyman showed up to tell Triple H that Plan A (Randy Orton) wasn’t working »

The rumor has existed for months and it is now confirmed: Brock Lesnar is in Miami for tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw. The news has been confirmed by PWInsider and backs up the previous news items about Brock Lesnar challenging John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam on August 17 in Los Angeles.
While Lesnar is expected to be on Raw with Paul Heyman by his side, John Cena wont be there. As we reported last week, Cena is headed to New York City to film scenes for the Judd Apatow film Trainwreck in New York City. Cena apparently flew from Tampa (site of last night’s Battleground event) to New York City this morning. Even without Cena in the building, they can still have Lesnar challenge him for the WWE Title or have Triple H name him as the challenger and then build »

This may be a Plan B project, but it sounds like a grade-a idea to us. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are set to reunite on the big screen for the first time since 2004's Mr. and Mrs. Smith, this time costarring in the character-driven drama By the Sea, Universal Pictures announced Friday. Jolie wrote the script and will direct the film, to be produced by Pitt. No word on whether there are parts for the kids to make it a full-on family affair, but mom and dad are good for starters. "I am very happy to continue my relationship with [Universal Pictures chair Donna Langley] and the entire Universal team as I finish Unbroken and begin work on By The Sea, " Jolie said in a »

In terms of big-money signings, the Gunners have not had much to whet their appetite with in recent seasons. With every transfer window that slams shut, praying to God that their newly-acquired 21 year old striker from Guinea hits the ground running, while their posh city rivals welcome the biggest and best from around Europe, an air of jealousy was apparent. Having to fund a new stadium can take its toll on a club’s forthrightness in the transfer market, and that in turn, will have a knockdown effect on the amount of trophies they acquire. With the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and even Thierry Henry plucked from thin air, with everything to prove to the gruelling English media, Wenger has been labelled ‘reluctant’ to dip his toes in what can be an unforgiving transfer market.
Last summer, there was a new wave of optimism circling the Emirates. »

Monday Night Raw teased the idea that Brock Lesnar could be a factor at this Sunday’s Battleground. The show also told the story that Seth Rollins injured his knee in the Raw main event. According to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio, that was just storyline, Rollins wasn’t injured.
In putting the Lesnar tease and the kayfabe Rollins injury together, could this be an angle to give Brock Lesnar a shock return at Battleground? Earlier on Raw the commentators referenced that Paul Heyman had been missing from the show all night, he hadn’t been around to mentor Cesaro in his match. Later that night, Triple H finally found Heyman. The manager then told Hunter that he had been biding his time, saying that he had a “Plan C” if the Authority required it.
This was an interesting exchange and an obvious foreshadowing of Brock Lesnar. »

WWE fans were sent into a frenzy last week when an image of the Summerslam 2014 DVD cover leaked online featuring Brock Lesnar and the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. While a Cena victory at Money In The Bank seemed inevitable, the poster killed any dream booking scenarios which involved someone besides Cena pulling down the two championship titles. The groundwork for the summer feud between the conqueror of the streak and the now 15-time World Champion was set on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
The Authority gave Cena two options if they were going to support him as champion: the easy way, or the hard way. Since Cena is a fighting champion and seems to overcome the odds each night, he took the hard way and now there is a fatal-four-way match for the championship at Battleground.
Cena will defend against Randy Orton, »

When Paramount Pictures and Pathé announced earlier this month that "Selma," Ava DuVernay's Martin Luther King, Jr. film would be released on Christmas Day, they set award prognosticating tongues wagging. Without a doubt, the prime release date means that Plan B, Oprah Winfrey and Cloud Eight-produced film will be making a push for awards love for the director and David Oyelowo ("The Butler"), who will star as the civil rights legend. And there's supporting talent to contend for other awards, from Tom Wilkinson to Carmen Ejogo to the film's financier, Oprah Winfrey. Mlk's history-making march from Selma, Alabama to the state capital in Montgomery in March 1965 paved the road for President Lyndon Baines Johnson to sign the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the release of "Selma" (limited on Christmas Day and expanding to wide on January 9, 2015) will mark the 50th anniversary of the march. DuVernay is best known for her 2012 Sundance. »

Zane Lowe has revealed that Chase & Status told the most "shocking" story on his upcoming MTV show.
Soundchain will see Lowe speak to a different artist each week, discussing their careers and backgrounds, alongside special performances.
He said: "I had spoken to Ben about Chase & Status [and he had implied that] 'we have a working relationship that's successful' but he gave off this vibe that it's not without its challenges.
"So I raised it with [Chase & Status] and said, 'I've got the feeling that you guys have this interesting relationship' and they told the most amazing story.
"The extremity of that story is just crazy. It was made out of pure love and admiration but it's a good example of a high intensity disagreeing moment."
Lowe also explained that he finds it difficult bringing »
The 10 pics championed by variety critics selected to screen at the Karlovy Vary Intl. Film Festival next month are an eclectic mix of the year’s best-reviewed Euro-backed features. Representing a wide sample of different genres, countries and languages (and yet still managing to include two films with “Blind” in the title), the choices range from French indie “Insecure” (fresh from Cannes) to Fantastic Fest favorite “Grand Piano” (an ultra-tense Spanish thriller starring Elijah Wood), pictured above.
The sidebar is presented in conjunction with European Film Promotion.
A lithe, quicksilver portrait of a woman whose loss of sight only serves to sharpen her creative imagination, this standout debut feature for screenwriter Eskil Vogt retains many of the literate, self-reflexive touches Vogt brought to his collaborations with helmer Joachim Trier while finding its own alternately droll, sexy, heartbreaking rhythms.

I had been sitting back wondering whether Ava DuVernay's "Selma" would be ready in time for this year's upcoming awards season. Paramount already has a couple of things to play with, from Jason Reitman's "Men, Women & Children" to Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar." Well, add another, as DuVernay's film has just been slated for a Christmas Day limited release. The film, which is being produced by Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt's Plan B shingle, is still shooting in Atlanta, Georgia and Montgomery and Selma, Alabama, but I guess there is enough faith that the editing will come together in time. It of course tells the story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s struggle to secure voting rights for all during the heated civil rights movement of the 1960s. This led to President Lyndon Johnson signing the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965. The film will go wide on Jan. »

Under the direction of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, J. Edgar Hoover carried out extensive investigations on Martin Luther King Jr., including wiretapping and other surveillance techniques. J. Edgar Hoover was considered to be one of the Civil Rights leader's biggest government adversaries.
The story centers on Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his historic march from Selma, Alabama to the state capitol in Montgomery in 1964. The march was met by heavy opposition by Alabama governor George Wallace (Tim Roth), who ordered state troopers to severely beat the first wave of marchers, which lead to nationwide protests and, ultimately, to president Lyndon B. Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act in 1965. Carmen Ejogo, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson and Colman Domingo round out the supporting cast. »
