Universal President of Domestic Distribution Nick Carpou took the stage. He thanked his team and the exhibitors, giving a shout out to the folks at Nato that produce CinemaCon. Nick then brought to the stage Donna Langley, Chairman of Universal Pictures, to discuss how Universal sees the development of their slate. Langley said she wouldn't be showing us All of their great stuff, but promised that all footage released would be exclusive new footage, not previously shown anywhere else. This was actually a first at the convention, as most of the studios were showing trailers and
After performing 156 shows on his most recent stint on the road, and journeying across 112 cities, 13 countries and five continents, the comedian says be may put the suitcase in storage. He has nothing left to prove.
“I don’t know if I’m ever going to go out and do it again,” Hart told theater owners at CinemaCon on Wednesday, adding that it was “my last fucking tour.”
Hart may be the most successful stand-up comic of his generation, commanding the kind of crowds that Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin did in their prime. Fans of the comedian can take solace in Hart’s upcoming movie, “What Now?” It features Hart in the midst of his global road-trip, culminating in his sell-out show at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles.
Instead of a “Last Waltz”-like rumination on the grind of the road,
Pete Candeland and Yarrow Cheney will direct the children’s film adapted from the Dr. Seuss book by Michael LeSieur.
Illumination head Chris Meledandri, who made the announcement during the Universal presentation at Cinemacon on Wednesday evening, will produce alongside Janet Healy and Scott Mosier. Audrey Geisel and Chris Renaud are executive producers.
Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas is scheduled for November 10, 2017, and will mark the first cinematic return to the property since Jim Carrey starred in Universal’s 2000 live-action version.
In other casting news, Meledandri revealed that South Park and Broadway smash The Book Of Mormon co-creator Trey Parker will voice the villain Balthazar Bratt in Despicable Me 3, set to open on June 30, 2017.
Bratt is an embittered former TV child star hell-bent on becoming the scourge of all those who mocked when he
The term ‘main event’ has a certain aura that comes along with it. As a sports fan it immediately brings to mind images of Michael Buffer famously announcing the opening of a high profile boxing match.
If you are a fan of the Ufc you can hear his brother Bruce doing the same thing inside the octagon with, It’s Time! But in wrestling, the term ‘main event’ has meant something completely different lately.
For about the last ten years WWE announcers have used the term ‘main event’, to describe multiple matches on card. During an era where there were still two world titles the term ‘main event’ was used rather loosely.
Kurt Angle vs. Eddie Guerrero was described as the ‘main event’ of WrestleMania 20. It wasn’t! It was not the most anticipated match and it didn’t close the show. The two very things that determine what a ‘main event’ is.
Let’s face the facts, it’s an amazing feat of athleticism just to make it to the Ufc. However, everyone worth their salt as a competitor wants one thing: to wear the championship belt. Unfortunately for the athletes on this list, chances are that they will never hear Michael Buffer refer to them as the New Ufc Champion.
Olympic competition, collegiate wrestling, championships in other organizations, being in the best Mma camp in the world; none of these things guarantee even a title opportunity in the Ufc. This is a list of popular fighters. Most of them have the charisma to put butts in the seats. Many of them are knowledgeable enough to coach. But the hard facts say they just aren’t going to get that Ufc belt.

One of the scariest,
The talk of the boxing clubs and in fans’ homes from now until Saturday evening will not be about the World Cup or the PGA tour, because there’s only one event that matters right now; what will be on everyone’s lips is the rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves. Billed as the biggest British boxing fight ever with 80,000 fans attending the contest at Wembley Stadium, the fight has captured the entire country’s attention.
Whether you’re a hardcore fan or a casual fight fan everyone has an opinion on the clash that feels more personal than anything else in recent years, which makes the fight so special. The last time the majority of the Britain were eager for a fight on Saturday night was back in 2007 when the Brits took over Las Vegas as Ricky Hatton faced Floyd Mayweather.
The rematch had to happen straight away,
We had the flag there first. What other people do and where has always been less of our concern. It's about keeping our head down and doing what we would believe would be cool for an audience to see. I wouldn't say that necessarily.
Not gonna lie, this showdown is getting more interesting by the minute. The only thing this fight needs is Michael Buffer to announce, "Let's get ready to rumble!"
What do you guys think? Chime in below!

18,000 seats sold out in less than 4 hours, two world championship belts on the line. Tonight, another incredible piece of boxing history. But great fights are won neither on history nor statistics. They are a snapshot in time – a moment where great fighters are made and broken – replayed over and over so much that we convince ourselves they lasted longer than the instance at which they took place.
For Carl Froch, the memory of his first loss at the hands of Mikkel Kessler 3 years ago was a brief moment in time that he has had on mental replay ever since. The media dissection of those brutal 12 rounds in Herning back in 2010 – the analysis, the interviews and the questions put to the man they call the
