The Title of Steve McQueen’s Next Film Has Been Revealed

The new film from the filmmaker of ‘Small Axe’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ is based on an original idea.

Oscar-winner Steve McQueen is working on his next feature. According to Deadline, McQueen will write, direct, and produce an original film called Blitz. McQueen is slated to reteam with New Regency, which produced two of his previous features, 12 Years a Slave (2013) and Widows (2018). Lammas Park, McQueen’s own production business, will also produce the picture alongside Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.

McQueen made a splash in the film industry when his debut theatrical film, Hunger, won the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He then went on to build a reputation for himself with 12 Years A Slave, which was nominated for nine Oscars, including Best Director for McQueen, and won three, including Best Picture. Since then, he has worked on a range of movies, documentaries, series, and shorts.

This will be McQueen’s first feature film since Widows. However, since then, he has directed, written, and produced 2020’s Small Axe, a critically acclaimed five-part anthology series for Prime Video about the real-life experiences of London’s West Indian community between 1969 and 1982, starring actors such as Letitia Wright, John Boyega, and Shaun Parkes. He has also co-directed and produced three Amazon Prime Video documentaries: Black Power: A British Story of Resistance, Subnormal: A British Scandal, and Uprising.

McQueen had the following to say about this new film project and collaborating with New Regency: “The team at New Regency have been wonderful partners to me over the years. I’m thrilled to work with Arnon, Yariv, and Michael again and very excited to join forces with Tim and Eric at Working Title Films.”

McQueen is currently keeping story details a secret. Blitz’s narrative, release date, cast, and crew have yet to be confirmed.

André Leon Talley has passed away at the age of 73

The fashion legend Andre Leon Talley, 73, has passed away.

One of Vogue’s previous creative directors and a former editor at large passed away on Tuesday, according to a person with firsthand knowledge of the situation. Exactly what he was battling in the hospital is yet unknown.

It was Talley’s work as news director and later as Vogue’s creative director in the 1980s and 1990s that made him an important figure in shaping the magazine’s vision and direction. From 1983 to 1987, Talley held both positions at Vogue.

After seven or eight years in that position, he became the executive editor of Vogue—with a little sabbatical in the middle—until 2013, when he departed the firm. 

ALT may be most known as a fashion innovator, not just for his style, but for his efforts to integrate more people of colour (POC) on the catwalk, particularly black models.

In addition to being a stylist for the Obamas during Barack Obama’s presidency, and even serving as a judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” his work and career speak for themselves. He has also served as a consultant on other notable projects, such as a cameo appearance on “SATC,” as well as frequent conversations with Wendy Williams.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has worked with him for decades and he is regarded one of the first major black tastemakers in American fashion. As an LGBT icon, Andre was more flexible than anything in his sexuality, even if he never explicitly said that he was queer.

A year ago, he was caught on camera discussing Rihanna, fashion, and even Donald Trump. Andre’s enormous personality was on full show in front of the cameras at this peak moment.

Activision Blizzard Will Be Acquired by Microsoft for $68.7 Billion in the Biggest Takeover Ever

Activision Blizzard Will Be Acquired by Microsoft for $68.7 Billion in the Biggest Takeover Ever

On Tuesday, Microsoft Corp. announced that it will acquire Activision Blizzard, the producer of the “Call of Duty” videogame, for $68.7 billion in cash, making the Xbox manufacturer the third-largest gaming firm by revenue.

At $95 per share, Microsoft’s bid represents a premium of 45 percent over Activision’s closing price on Friday. At $65.39, Activision’s stock was up over 38% before being halted due to news.

In a press release, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said, “Gaming is the most dynamic and exciting category in entertainment across all platforms today and will play a key role in the development of metaverse platforms,”

Video game sales have increased as a result of the epidemic, as people who are confined to their homes are turning to video games to pass the time.

Microsoft’s Xbox gaming platform has an advantage over Sony’s Playstation because of Activision’s catalogue of popular titles like “Call of Duty” and “Overwatch”

Activision Blizzard’s CEO, Bobby Kotick, will remain in his position.

Take-Two Interactive Software Inc., a rival videogame publisher, said last week that it will purchase “FarmVille” developer Zynga for $11 billion in cash and shares, making it the largest acquisition in the industry’s history.

Pokimane vs Ninja: Pokimane calls out Ninja for “bitch” comment & Jidion support

Pokimane vs Ninja: Pokimane calls out Ninja for “bitch” comment & Jidion support

Top Twitch stars Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has had a violent verbal sparring match, with the latter threatening legal action after the latter was accused of leveraging his contacts to allegedly help Jidion, a streamer who was banned for life for ‘hate raiding’ her.

Pokimane’s life was cut short on December 13 after Twitch streamer Jidion launched a hate campaign against her, with viewers abusing her and flooding her with comments like “L + Ratio.”

Jidion’s Twitch channel was immediately stopped for 14 days following the hate raid, which was quickly extended to a full, permanent ban on January 17.

The saga isn’t done, as Poki mentioned in her stream the same day. Since then, Ninja has jokingly referred to Pokimane and other streamers as “bitches,” apparently messaging his Twitch connections to help Jidion avoid a ban.

Ninja is called a “bitch” by Pokimane, and Jidion backs him up

Poki delves into the topic with Jidion during her January 17 stream, appearing perplexed by Ninja’s attitude. “You can’t run around raiding bitches on Twitch,” Ninja stated regarding the hate raider’s behavior, according to her account.

While he clarified that he “meant bitches in general,” Poki was left with a simple question: “I wonder if Ninja would have yelled “bitches” if the raider had been a huge guy broadcaster.” Ninja’s attempts to assist Jidion in avoiding the punishment imposed by Twitch also perplexed the streamer.

“Ninja then keeps joking about it and says that Dijon (Jidion) is f**ked but that he will do whatever he can to help him, but don’t expect too much,”  she told her group about the rest of Ninja’s stream.

Ninja threatens Pokimane with legal action

As the two Twitch stars traded blows on social media, the situation started to spiral out of hand. Poki’s next move was to share a private message from Ninja’s wife, Jessica Blevins.
