No Comments Entertainment News

Andrew Eccles/Universal Pictures(LOS ANGELES) — Like its unstoppable killer Michael Myers, the Halloween films will live on. On Friday, Universal Pictures announced release dates for two new films in the iconic horror series, following the blockbuster success of 2018’s reboot starring original sole survivor Jamie Lee Curtis. 

The film, which was directed by David Gordon Green, was made for a modest budget of $10 million bucks, but went on to gross more than $250 million worldwide. That success will be spun into two follow-ups, Halloween Kills, slated for a Friday, October 16, 2020 release, and Halloween Ends, which will hit theaters on Friday, October 15, 2021. 

Green will direct both sequels, which will be co-written by him, as well as actor and Halloween reboot co-writer Danny McBride.

Restaurant near where Trump held rally is donating its profits to help immigrants

No Comments National News

iStock(GREENVILLE, N.C.) — A Greenville, North Carolina, restaurant near the site of President Donald Trump’s Wednesday rally plans to donate all of its profits from that day to a non-profit immigration advocacy group.

“One hundred percent of today’s sales will be donated to American Immigration Council in order to help with the immigration crisis at our southern border and to celebrate our diverse community,” The Scullery restaurant shared in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

Scullery owner Matthew Scully told ABC News that leading up to the rally he was “bothered” by the racially-charged divisive language of the president, and his administration’s immigration policy of family separation.

“We have a really vibrant, wonderful community and our restaurant is a part of that, and we have all kinds of people in our restaurant from across the political spectrum, all different races and cultures and beliefs,” Scully said. “I wanted to make a positive statement and not one that divided people but that brought our community together.”

Prior to the rally, a sign in The Scullery’s window said that the restaurant would be donating its daily sales, which ended up totaling more than $5,600.

At the rally that night, Trump supporters chanted “Send her back!” after the president launched the latest in a series of attacks against Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“Omar blamed the United States for the crisis in Venezuela. I mean, think of that one. And she looks down with contempt on the hard-working Americans, saying that ignorance is pervasive in many parts of this country,” Trump said to scattered chants of “Send her back.”

Scullery said it was extremely disturbing to hear those chants during a rally in the community he loves, knowing that he had friends who were in attendance.

“People look at our city now and see a racial divide and hear people chanting ‘Send her back,’” Scullery said. “There’s no place for that here and she’s an elected congresswoman who’s trying her best to make our country better.”

The American Immigration Council works to “brings together problem solvers and employs four coordinated approaches to advance change — litigation, research, legislative and administrative advocacy, and communications,” according to its website.

This fall, Keith Urban goes back to the beginning with 20th anniversary vinyl

No Comments Country Music News

Capitol Nashville CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban will mark the twentieth anniversary of his self-titled, debut album this fall by releasing it on vinyl for the very first time.

The platinum-selling Keith Urban will be available as both a limited-edition lavender LP and on standard black vinyl as well. The record — which originally came out on October 19, 1999 — set the Aussie superstar’s career in motion with the hits “But for the Grace of God,” “Where the Blacktop Ends,” and “Your Everything.”

Keith’s 2009 effort, Defying Gravity, marked its tenth anniversary earlier this year, and will once again be available on vinyl as well. Previously, it was available only as a limited-edition white disc. That version will return, plus a standard black disc as well.

Defying Gravity was Keith’s first album to top the all-genre Billboard 200, and features the hits “Sweet Thing,” “Kiss a Girl,” and “Only You Can Love Me This Way.”

Both vinyl re-issues are set to come out September 13. They’re available for pre-order now.
