Yolanda Hadid is loving every moment of being a grandmother and she is sharing her joy with all her fans and friends.

Taking to her social media handle, she teased fans with a photo of Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s beautiful baby girl. She posted a precious photo of the infant holding on to her fingers as she gushed about the little one and thanked her daughter for making her an “Oma.”

“My heart is expending with so much love and joy for this little baby girl she is an angel sent to us from above…..thank you Mommy and Daddy for making me an Oma, I love every minute of it,” She captioned the picture.

Yolanda's picture with the baby is similar to Zayn and Gigi's photos with the little one. Choosing not to reveal their daughter's face the couple posted photos of the baby holding their fingers.

Zayn and Gigi welcomed their first child together in September. Although the star-couple announced their daughter’s birth, they are yet to formally announce her name.

Jackie Chan's 2001 film is a competent, entertaining action-adventure film, but ultimately a poor Jackie Chan movie. It's still worth seeing, but after Project A, Police Story or Supercop, The Accidental Spy can only be a letdown.

Jackie Chan (Thanh Long) returns to Hong Kong film with this international-flavored action-adventure from director Teddy Chan (Downtown Torpedoes). Chan is Buck Yuen, a fitness equipment salesman who happens into an international spy chase. Buck is fingered by a dying Korean spy as his long-lost son. And sets out across the globe to find his supposed inheritance.

Adkins' first role came in 2001 when he was featured in Jackie Chan’s Accidental Spy as a henchman. He has gone to star in many movies, be it in leading roles, cameos, or as villains. One of the reasons Scott Adkins is considered a good fit for martial arts movies is because of his martial arts and acrobatic capabilities. He shows much of this in his breakthrough movie, Undisputed 2: Last Man Standing.

Buck's journey leads to to Turkey, but things aren't what they seem. Even though he finds the money, numerous parties begin chasing him asking about some other package that he isn't entirely aware of. Among these parties is evil businessman Wu Xing-Guo and his innocent moll (Vivian Hsu). The missing package turns out to be a deadly virus called Anthrax II. And everyone and their brother wants it for the obvious biological warfare applications. What's a normal guy like Buck to do?

As a Jackie Chan film, The Accidental Spy (Dac Vu Me Thanh) fits neatly within his recent body of work. It showcases terrific foreign locations, an international cast, and multiple spoken languages. However, like Mr. Nice Guy or Who Am I?, this international marketing approach yields an almost colorless film. The Accidental Spy compensates by using Eric Tsang and Alfred Cheung in supporting roles, but as usual it's up to Chan to carry the picture all by himself. He does through his usual physical comedy, but his age is showing. There aren't any really impressive stunts or insanity to speak of, and the comedy aspect is muted too. He has no real co-stars to play off of, and we're left with a standard action thriller.

This is even more apparent in the final sequences of the film, which go from an international spy chase to a rip-off of Speed, complete with a vehicle that can't slow down or else it'll explode. Why this happens is obvious: thrills! However, it's not why we go to see Jackie Chan movies. We see them for the choreography and for Chan's generous comedic persona. Both are in evidence here, but only in small doses. His age hinders the action and his need for international appeal renders his Hong Kong films free of any local charm or flavor.

At this point in Jackie Chan's career, he's better suited to the Rush Hour formula. Which allows for more comedy to compensate for Chan's advancing age. All of this doesn't necessarily mean that The Accidental Spy is a bad film. On the contrary, it's a competent, efficient action-adventure that gets the job done. It just doesn't enthrall and amaze like the best Jackie Chan movies do. And it isn't as funny as Rush Hour or Shanghai Noon, either.

CBS All Access, which should probably change its name to the Star Trek Channel at this point, just went ahead and ordered Star Trek: Discovery season 4. Well, the decision probably wasn’t just made, because it turns out production is set to start next month. In all likelihood, CBS All Access made the decision months ago. But waited to announce now because Star Trek: Discovery season 3 just premiered.

[Image: star-trek-discovery.jpg]

In the video above, the cast of Star Trek: Discovery announced that season 4 of the hit CBS All Access series is already greenlit. And production starts next month. The series was originally set about a decade before the original Star Trek series. But has flung itself into the distant future with the most recent season.

Star Trek Discovery Season 4

Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman created the series. Although Fuller departed due to creative differences (something that seems to happen a lot in his career). The third season of the series just premiered on CBS All Access on October 15. In season 2, “After answering a distress signal from the U.S.S. Enterprise, season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery joining forces with Captain Christopher Pike on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel. While the crew must work together to unravel their meaning and origi. Michael Burnham is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock.” That second season ended with the Discovery crew traveling to the future. Which opens up all sorts of possibilities for this latest season. And any season that comes after it.

Sonequa Martin-Green stars as Michael Burnham. A female science specialist on the Discovery. Leading a cast that includes Doug JonesShazad LatifAnthony RappMary Wiseman, and Wilson Cruz. CBS All Access is all-in on Star Trek, producing Discovery along with titles like Star Trek: Lower DecksStar Trek: PicardStar Trek: Short Treks as well as upcoming titles like Star Trek: ProdigyStar Trek: Strange New Worlds, and a still-untitled series focused on Starfleet’s Section 31 division, with Michelle Yeoh reprising her role from Discovery. CBS All Access has plenty of non-Trek titles, too – but the Trek stuff is the only thing that seems to generate buzz. So it goes.

Disney+ has released a new peak at The Mandalorian season 2, which will premiere at the end of this month.

[Image: The-Mandalorian-Season.jpg]

A new teaser for The Mandalorian season 2 reveals a returning character from season 1. In addition, Disney+ has announced that a new look at the highly anticipated season will debut during Monday Night Football (October 19th) as the Arizona Cardinals take on the Dallas Cowboys. The game starts at 8:15pm Eastern. So make sure you plan ahead to see the new footage of Baby Yoda and crew as it drops. The wait for The Mandalorian season 2 is nearly over, and Star Wars fans already have a lot of questions.

The Mandalorian's first trailer already confirmed that Carl Weathers' Greef Karga and Gina Carano's Cara Dune were returning. But the new footage released this morning proves that another character from season 1 will also be coming back. And it's one character that a lot of fans probably were not expecting at all. Horatio Sanz's Mythrol, the mouthy blue alien from the first episode of season 1, can be seen in the latest footage in between Dune and Karga on a mysterious ship.

Quote:In The Mandalorian season 1, Mythrol is apprehended by Din Djarin and then frozen in carbonite. Before being delivered to Greef Karga. He was not mentioned again after that. So it's unclear if he'll have a larger role this time around, or how he even fits into season 2. As with anything having to do with Star Wars. Lucasfilm and Disney are being highly secretive about what happens in the second season of the highly successful Disney+ series. The element of surprise was something that a lot of hardcore fans enjoyed the most about the series. It should be noted that Horatio Sanz is a massive Star Wars fan. So he may have been able to persuade them for a new cameo.

As for fans wondering about a potential season 3 of The Mandalorian. It is happening and production is about to begin very soon. Show creator Jon Favreau recently said they're "on-schedule" to start production before 2020 ends. "We're operating under the assumption that we'll be able to go forward," Favreau noted. Season 2 will premiere Friday, October 30th, exclusively on Disney+. So we don't know what it will set up for season 3. Regardless, Star Wars fans should be happy to know that a new season is already in the works.

With The Mandalorian doing so well on Disney+, speculation about a possible movie has started to spread. Jon Favreau said, "The line is blurring now. Things that you would have only seen in the movie theater. You're seeing on streaming, and I think it could go the other way as well". Series star Pedro Pascal was more tight lipped about the situation. "But we're definitely open to it". Pascal said when asked about a potential movie". And excited to see where the story leads us and have that flexibility - because there's no rulebook now". It would be interesting to see how The Mandalorian would be accepted on the big screen after having so much success on the small screen. You can check out the new teaser for The Mandalorian season 2 above. Thanks to the Disney+ Twitter account.

The Falcon the the Winter Soldier is in the process finishing the last bit of production that was halted earlier this year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Even though production is close to wrapping up. We only just now learning about another cast member joining the Marvel Studios series heading to Disney+. On My Block star Danny Ramirez has taken a role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Joining Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as the titular characters.

[Image: topgun.jpg]

The Hollywood Reporter has news on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier cast adding Danny Ramirez. Who starred in the Netflix series On My Block. As well as indies like Assassination Nation and the remake of Valley Girl. Ramirez would have already seen his star rise a little bit earlier this year if Top Gun: Maverick hadn’t been delayed. But now we won’t see his performance in the sequel until July next year. So it’s likely we’ll see Ramirez in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier first. Unfortunately, we don’t know his specific role. But it’s say to be a pivotal one.

As for the rest of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier cast. Emily VanCamp is reprising her role as Sharon Carter, aka Agent 13. Daniel Brühl is also returning as Baron Zemo, the same villain who forced The Avengers to clash in Captain America: Civil War. Speaking of which, Wyatt Russell will be playing John Walker, aka U.S. Agent, the government sanctioned replacement for Steve Rogers as Captain America, which is bind to create some conflict.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was intend to be the first Marvel Studios series to arrive on Disney+. But the production delay has resulted in WandaVision arriving first, potentially towards the end of November. Hopefully this doesn’t make the timeline of upcoming projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe too complicated to follow.

But regardless of the timeline, it sounds like there’s the potential for things to get a lot more confusing with Jamie Foxx boarding Spider-Man 3 as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 villain Electro, not to mention Stephen Strange getting involved with Peter Parker’s adventures before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives. And since that sequel is suppose to have some kind of direct tie-in to the events of WandaVision. As for what impact The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will have on the next era of Marvel movies, that remains to be seen.

Both Superman and Wonder Woman are present on The Batman set. Which is believed to be for a Halloween party scene.

[Image: The-Batman-Set.jpg]

Recently, the internet was buzzing when photos of an unknown actor dressed up in what appeared to be a Superman Halloween costume was spotted on the sets of Matt Reeves' upcoming movie The Batman. Now, new photos have been posted on Twitter that reveal an actress dressed up as Wonder Woman alongside the Superman actor on the sets of the film.

These photos raise a lot of questions about the state of the DC Universe that The Batman will portray. While Reeves has been careful to stress that his film will be divorced from the rest of the DCEU. It seems The Batman will acknowledge the existence of Superman, Wonder Woman. And possibly other superheroes as well.

But are the Halloween costumes an indication that Superman and Wonder Woman exist in the world of The Batman? Or are they fictional characters in that universe, perhaps appearing in comics and cartoons? A similar approach was taken in Logan. Where the X-Men were largely said to be a mythical team that only existed within the pages of comic books.

It is also interesting to consider that Reeves choose to pay homage to the earlier superhero costume designs that were created for Christopher Reeve and Lynda Carter. Rather than using the newer costumes worn by Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot. The older costumes are a popular choice for couples to wear when going out for parties on Halloween. And Reeves may be paying homage to that tradition.

In the past, Reeves had stated that The Batman will be taking several cues from The Long Halloween comic series. So it makes sense that the movie would include Halloween celebrations. But it is unlikely that the actors dressed up as Superman and Wonder Woman will have any direct impact on the storyline beyond appearing in the background. Reeves already has an entire Batman trilogy planned out that will explore the world of the Dark Knight. Adding Supes and Wondy into the mix would simply dilute the focus of the trilogy. And fly in the face of what Warner Bros. is trying to accomplish with the larger DCEU.

Directed by Matt Reeves and written by Reeves and Mattson Tomlin. The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone and Peter Sarsgaard as District Attorney Gil Colson.

The film is set to take place in the early days of the career of Batman. The Caped Crusader has only been working as a crime fighter for two years so far. And is discouraged by the lack of positive change that his actions have had on Gotham city. Meanwhile, a new supervillain who calls himself The Riddler has arrived on the scene. Who promises to blow the lid off Gotham's long history of corruption in the highest offices. The Batman arrives in theaters March 4, 2022.

Mr. Mercedes is not a new show. But Peacock is sure treating it like one. The Stephen King-inspired series originally aired its first three seasons on Audience Network, and if you’re reading that and thinking, “What the hell is Audience Network?”, you’re not alone! In fact, the channel doesn’t even exist anymore. It was discontinued in May of 2020. Audience’s loss is Peacock’s gain, as the free streaming service is now making all three seasons available. There’s no word on a fourth season yet, but perhaps if enough people watch Mr. Mercedes on Peacock then Peacock will order more episodes. In the meantime, a new Mr. Mercedes featurette below goes behind-the-scenes of the show.

[Image: mr.-mercedes-featurette.jpg]

Mr. Mercedes Featurette on Youtube

I’m a huge Stephen King nerd. I have been for most of my life. But I’ll confess that I just can’t get into his Bill Hodges trilogy. It’s probably because I’m just not much of a mystery buff, and the Bill Hodges tales are primarily mysteries, although they do throw a few supernatural elements in here and there. As a result, I’ve never bothered to watch Mr. Mercedes. And I’m not sure I could’ve if I even wanted to, since the show aired on Audience, a network I have no idea if I have access to.

But now the show has moved to Peacock. To be clear: there are no new episodes on Peacock – just the first three seasons that already aired. But if I had to guess, I’d say that Peacock is trying to decide how big an audience there is for the show now. If it does good streaming numbers they might go ahead and order more. If not, at least the show is now available to a wider audience.

The featurette above isn’t very in-depth. It’s mostly Mr. King talking about how exciting it is to see someone adapt his words into reality. It also features a moment where Stephen King says “I hope people will binge Mr. Mercedes on Peacock!”, and just hearing the master of horror fiction utter that sentence is very funny to me, so at least there’s that.

Mr. Mercedes “follows a retired detective who is tormented by a serial killer (Brady Hartsfield, aka Mr. Mercedes) through a series of letters and e-mails, causing him to set out on a dangerous and potentially felonious crusade to protect his loved ones and himself.” The cast includes Brendan GleesonHarry TreadawayKelly LynchJharrel Jerome, Mary-Louise Parker, Holland Taylor, Justine Lupe, Breeda Wool, Scott Lawrence, Ann Cusack, Jack Huston, Tessa Ferrer, Maximiliano Hernández, and Nancy Travis. The show is now streaming on Peacock.

Next week, Amazon brings us the surprise Borat sequel that we only just learned about barely a month ago. There’s no better time for Kazakhstan’s most famous reporter to come back to America. But this time comedian Sacha Baron Cohen hoped to achieve something different than he did the first time around. Though the primary goal of Borat: Subsequent Movie Film: Delivery of Prodigious Bride to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is to make us laugh through shocking and inappropriate behavior and the candid reactions of real people, the character does much more than deliver crass and crude humor.

[Image: borat2-halloweenstorre.jpg]

Speaking with The New York Times, Sacha Baron Cohen points out how the world has changed since Borat came to America in 2005, but not necessarily for the better. Cohen says:

Quote:“In 2005, you needed a character like Borat who was misogynist, racist, anti-Semitic to get people to reveal their inner prejudices. Now those inner prejudices are overt. Racists are proud of being racists. My aim here was not to expose racism and anti-Semitism. The aim is to make people laugh, but we reveal the dangerous slide to authoritarianism.”

Cohen took on even more risks and put himself in plenty of stressful situations to make this sequel. Not only did he wear a bullet proof vest to protect himself as much as possible during an appearance at a conservative rally held in Olympia, Washington. Which he wasn’t confident would keep him safe when the crowd ended up turning on him. But he had to spend five days in lockdown with a group of conspiracy theorists. Cohen recalled:

Quote:“The hardest thing I had to do was, I lived in character for five days in this lockdown house. I was waking up, having breakfast, lunch, dinner, going to sleep as Borat when I lived in a house with these two conspiracy theorists. You can’t have a moment out of character.”

Cohen even had to spend five hours in a bathroom at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year, all so he could ambush Mike Pence’s appearance at the event in full disguise as Donald Trump. In addition to being one of the biggest gags teased in the trailer. It actually made national news in February before we ever knew about the Borat sequel. What other surprising gags are in store for us? We’ll find out when the movie hits Amazon Prime on October 23, 2020.

01 - Happy Birthday, Freida Pinto: 5 times the 'Slumdog Millionaire' actress rocked the red carpet with her stunning looks
