Many people have been wishing for this to happen for several years. And finally, the time has come. Kevin Hart the American comedian will be hosting the 91st Oscars.

Previous two Oscars were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. That is not going to happen in the February 2019 event.

This time the producers overseeing the show will be Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss. The respective roles will be of a producer for Gigliotti and co-producer and director for Weiss.

This change happened because the rating of the Oscars has declined over the past years. And The Academy is hoping to raise those rating with these new changes.

Previously Kevin Hart has hosted MTV Movie Awards along with Dwayne Johnson. But the comedian wanted to host the Oscars from a long time and he has been actively promoting himself to get the role.

On his appearance on the morning show Live With Kelly and Michael in 2015 he said the following to the show’s hosts.

That would be a major accomplishment. With what I’ve done and the progress I’ve made in my career, that’s definitely the next major step, I feel, for a comedian.

That show is now called Live With Kelly and Ryan.

And now the time for Kevin Hart has finally arrived. Here’s the Instagram post the comedian and actor posted a few minutes ago.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

My first reaction to the trailer was, OMG is that El(Eleven from Stranger Things)? Yes, Millie Bobby Brown is in the new Godzilla movie. This time they are calling them the Titans, and they have two types, the good and the bad.

Now, I was like, are you guys for real! Is this Godzilla or Transformers? But on the other hand, I liked the overall concept; it adds something new to the franchise.

And it doesn’t end there, this time the monster or as they call them the titans can fly. No, way, Seriously?

Yes, there are huge monsters tearing the cities apart and some of them can freaking fly! In the movie, the giant lizard will be fighting with the Titans, named King Ghidorah, Rodan and Mothra.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the third movie in Legendary’s MonsterVerse. And it’s a sequel to the 2014 Godzilla movie. ScreenRant explained that this 2019 movie will also set up the next film Godzilla Vs. Kong (2020).

The cast includes Millie Bobby Brows as Madison Russell, Vera Farmiga as Dr. Rmma Russell, Sally Hawkins as Dr. Vivienne Graham and Kyle Chandler as Mark Russell. Michael Dougherty has directed the film.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits theaters on May 31st, 2019.

Happy 102nd birthday to the most beautiful man. We love you Kirk.

A post shared by Catherine Zeta-Jones (@catherinezetajones) on

Apart from this USA Today shared a video of Kirk Douglas and his wife Anne Douglas that really touched my heart and I couldn’t agree with her more on the topic of writing letters.

In the video, she tells that how till today she has kept all the love letters from Kirk. She also tells how feelings can be attached to writing physical letters. And feels sorry that these days no one writes love letters, they just use text messages or emails.

I also feel that a handwritten letter makes a person feel warm, its something a person can touch and feel. No email and text message can give that kind of feeling. As Anne said, it’s just a cold thing to do. Here’s the sweet video below.

Brightburn Trailer

One night a meteorite hits the backyard of a couple’s home. They thought it was the answer to their longtime prayers. But was it really?!

A teaser for James Gunn produced horror movie called BrightBurn released at Brazil’s Comic-Con. The films have sci-fi and horror elements in it.

The film is directed by David Yarovesky (Guardians of the Galaxy: Inferno) and co-written by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn.

What if all the creatures arrived on earth from a different planet are not bound to become heroes? What if the kid you love and adore dearly is a killing machine?

Here’s the film’s official logline.

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister?

And Elizabeth Banks is not going to be amused when the kid she loves turns out to be evil.

In this Sci-Fi spine-chilling horror film, Banks plays the role of a mother who can’t have a child. She and her husband (David Denman) prays to God almost every day to get blessed with a child. And one day a meteorite hits their backyard and the couple became happy.

As they raise the kid they find out he’s far from normal. Have a look at the intense trailer released earlier.
