Coronavirus Delays James Bond Movie Until November

The theatrical release of new James Bond movie ‘No Time To Die’ has been delayed by seven months.

The film’s producers announced that the release will be postponed until November 2020.

“No Time To Die”, James Bond movie no. 25, was scheduled to premier at U.S. cinemas on April 8, with a traditional earlier release in the UK and the rest of the world on April 3.

The film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios, and Universal Pictures International, is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.

MGM, Universal and Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement that the decision was taken after “careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace.”

Although it did not mention any specific reason behind it, the global theatrical marketplace is currently in the grip of the coronavirus outbreak.

Around 70,000 theaters in China, which is the worst affected country by the COVID-19 outbreak, are currently closed.

The Chinese theaters are a potential marketplace for Hollywood productions.

Cinemas in many other parts of the world, including Japan, South Korea and Italy – the countries that are hard-hit by the disease, have been temporarily closed over fear of the spread of the virus.

MGM is distributing the film in the United States, while Universal will distribute the film in the UK and internationally.

The film’s release dates were postponed multiple times after Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle dropped out due to “creative differences” with the producers.

Daniel Craig will return to play the 007 spy for the fifth and the last time.

Lea Seydoux is reprising her still-mysterious Madeleine Swann character, while “Bohemian Rhapsody” fame Rami Malek stars as a villain.

Inside Britney’s conservatorship as singer’s ‘time with son is reduced’

The controversial conservatorship of Britney Spears has returned to the spotlight after it was reported her time with her sons has been reduced under the new guidelines.

Britney's dad was appointed her conservator and made legally responsible for handling her finances and important life decisions.

It was implemented after the former teen star experienced several mental breakdowns in 2008 – including being committed to a psychiatric ward twice – and the conservatorship continues to remain in place 13 years later.

Under the arrangement, Britney has no legal control over her estate, or financial and personal assets.

Last week, the pop star was reported to be 'angry' after hearing custody of her two sons was being reduced from 50 to 30 per cent.

It came after her son Jayden accused his grandfather Jamie of assault and his father Kevin Federline obtained a restraining order against him.

Kevin then asked a judge to alter their previous shared arrangement, leaving Britney with less time with her boys, according to US Weekly.

In a fifteen minute live stream to Instagram , Jayden branded his grandfather Jamie a 'd***',

Jamie had been briefly suspended from his role as conservator in 2019 due to health problems, but was since been reinstated and has authority over Britney's finances and personal decisions.

  • Britney Spears' ex Kevin Federline is 'handling' rogue son Jayden after 'd***' rant

  • Britney Spears 'angry' about spending less time with sons after Jayden calls her dad a 'd**k'

Last year, fans came together to claim the arrangement was exploiting and manipulating Britney who should be back in control of her own decisions.

It became known as the #FreeBritney movement, which followers expressing their anger on social media and protesting outside of a Los Angeles courthouse, where a status hearing was held on the conservatorship.

Britney took to social media herself to insist she is fine and in control of her life. While those involved in the conservatorship say say she's very involved in the decision making.

“You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!” she said in April.

Her attorney Stanton Stein, whom Jamie Spears hired after the #FreeBritney movement took off, denied the idea that the singer had been coerced in any way.

“She’s always involved in every career and business decision,” he said. “Period.”

Jon Bon Jovi Has a Clever New Nickname for Prince Harry

Names are a big deal for the members of the royal family. They demonstrate status, alignments, and power structures. When Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex stepped away from their royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left many questions up in the air. Among those questions was what would happen to their titles and would their names change. 

Amongst all of the more serious speculation about the outcomes of this unprecedented move, we now have a little levity. Jon Bon Jovi, who has been working with Prince Harry on a song collaboration, has given the outcasted royal a new nickname. 

Prince Harry’s collaboration with Jon Bon Jovi is one of his final royal acts

View this post on Instagram

Testing, testing🎙… • Recorded inside Abbey Road Studios, home to The Beatles and other music legends, The Duke of Sussex joins Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir for a special live session in aid of the Invictus Games Foundation. The song being played, called ‘Unbroken’, was created by Jon Bon Jovi to shine a spotlight on those veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI), to honour their service and acknowledge the strength of the Armed Forces community. The Duke and JBJ are both strong supporters of the military community, with The Duke founding the Invictus Games in 2014. The Invictus Games Choir, made up of wounded, injured and sick veterans and serving personnel from all services and different ranks of the UK Armed Forces, have come together to use the power of music to aid their recovery. Although The Duke was unable to sing, leaving the vocals to the professionals, the special single that was recorded in Studio 2 where The Beatles recorded 11 out of their 13 albums, and will be released in March in support of the @WeAreInvictusGames.

While the rumors about Prince Harry and Meghan’s departure swirled for at least the past year, the announcement that they would officially be stepping back from their duties has been public for a few months.

Still, it takes time to untangle all of their responsibilities, and they are not officially out of the roles until April 1. That gives the pair time to wrap up impending projects. 

One of those projects includes the somewhat unlikely work of Prince Harry working alongside rock star Jon Bon Jovi to create a song. The collaboration is part of a charity effort.

Bon Jovi went to Abbey Road Studio to re-record his song “Unbroken,” which was originally written to raise awareness about veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. Proceeds from the new project will go to the Invictus Games Foundation. 

Prince Harry’s new freedom is causing rifts with family

These last engagements as official royal duties — especially ones with high profile rock stars — are getting a lot of media attention, but that’s a source of frustration for the other members of the family who will not be exiting at the end of the month. In particular, Prince Harry and Meghan’s brief return to the U.K. overlapped with Prince William and Kate’s visit to Ireland. 

The fear is that the coverage of the exiting couple will overshadow the important work of the Cambridges diplomatic efforts.

Prince Harry and Meghan are already facing some icy consequences of their decision, including being demanded not to use the word “royal” to describe themselves. These consequences include the removal of their “HRH” titles.

It will no longer be appropriate to refer to them as “His Royal Highness” and “Her Royal Highness.” However, Prince Harry is still a prince, and he still maintains his place in the line of succession to the throne.

Jon Bon Jovi has a new nickname for Prince Harry

While discussing their collaborative project, Bon Jovi poked a little fun at Prince Harry’s predicament. Prince Harry’s role in the collaboration was to sit in as a “senior member” of the royal family as a way to provide support to the charity effort. Bon Jovi joked that he was planning to “hand him a tambourine and see what he’s got going.”

Then he went on to say that he wasn’t sure how to refer to Prince Harry as they worked together. He said: “I’ve been asking, ‘What do I do? How do I address him?’ And then I realized I’m gonna call him ‘The Artist Formerly Known as Prince.’” 

While, of course, the joke isn’t accurate — Prince Harry is now and forever a prince, something that’s determined by his birth and not his current duties — Bon Jovi has managed to add a little fun to what has been a tense situation for everyone involved. Prince Harry and Meghan have a 12-month review period. It’s possible that they could change their minds about their new roles, but only time will tell what arrangement will work best for everyone.

Eva Mendes Tells Fans Why They Will Never See Ryan Gosling on Her Instagram Page

“My man and my kids are private,” the actress told a fan who commented they “wouldn’t mind an appearance by Ryan on this page.”

Ryan Gosling may be a big movie star whose face adorns movies and television screens, billboards, posters and magazine covers, but there’s one place you won’t find him and that’s on Eva Mendes’ social media feeds.

The actress, who has been dating Gosling since 2011 and shares two children with him, broke it down for a fan who cheekily commented that they "wouldn’t mind an appearance by Ryan [Gosling] on this page."

Mendes kept it positive, but was very clear as to her social media approach when it comes to family. "I’ll only post flash backs of things that are already ‘out there’ (like pics from movies we did or stuff like that)," she said of Gosling content, as reported by People.

"My man and my kids are private," the actress continued. "That’s important to me so thanks for getting that."

The initial fan comment was a "P.S." note attached to a more positive appreciation of Mendes’ willingness to connect directly with her fans and acknowledge them through her social media presence. It can be a double-edged sword, but Mendes is clearly passionate about the benefits of social media while vigilantly avoiding its pitfalls as best she can.

"I struggle with Social Media but I love the constant connection with women," she told the fan after thanking her for her kind words. "I try to post responsibly and I try to make sure I don’t portray myself in a way that makes other women feel bad."

She then went on to talk about the Instagram pic the fan commented on, which was a promotional shot for her new collection with New York & Company, making sure that she is very clear that she does not just roll out of bed and look like that.

"Instagram can be hurtful in that way," she said of retouched photos perpetuating self-image and -confidence issues in women. And so she made sure to let her followers know that this photo was most definitely retouched professionally as part of an ad campaign.

"I want women to know it takes a lot for me to look this way and that I struggle with food among many other things," she said.

The actress then closed by encouring that fan and all of her other followers to keep on keeping it real with her and she’ll return the favor. "Feel free to call me out on bullshit if you see it," she wrote.

Mendes can be seen engaging with her fans throughout her Instagram page, thanking them for their kindness and keeping things generally very positive and filled with love. It’s wonderful to see someone so deliberate in finding a healthy way to engage with social media both for their fans and theirself.

In January, William revealed a very sweet detail about his proposal to then-girlfriend Kate Middleton in 2010, during a speech at Buckingham Palace to mark the UK-Africa Investment Summit. Explaining why the African continent holds a special place in his heart, he said: “It is the place my father took my brother and me shortly after our mother died. And when deciding where best to propose to Catherine, I could think of no more fitting place than Kenya to get down on one knee.”
