Idris Elba will fight for his survival against the King of the Jungle in his new movie “Beast,” set for release next summer. Universal has set an August 19, 2022 release for “Beast,” which is directed by Baltasar Kormákur and finds Elba on a trip to South Africa, only for he and his two teenage daughters to be hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the savanna has but one apex predator. And it’s got a dope tagline too: Sometimes the rustle in the bushes actually is a monster. Idris Elba in “Beast” plays Dr. Nate Samuels, a recently widowed husband who returns to South Africa where he first met his wife on a long-planned trip with their daughters to a game reserve. But what begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of blood-thirsty poachers who now sees all humans as the enemy, begins stalking them. Ryan Engle (“Rampage,” “Non-Stop”) wrote the script, and “Beast” is produced by Will Packer and James Lopez, president of Will Packer Productions. The film’s executive producers are Jaime Primak Sullivan and Bernard Bellew. Kormákur is the Icelandic director of “Contraband,” “The Oath,” “Everest” and “Adrift.” Elba most recently starred in the Netflix drama “Concrete Cowboy” and will next be seen in “The Suicide Squad” and “The Harder They Fall,” and he’ll also be seen in George Miller’s next film “Three Thousand Years of Longing.” Read original story Idris Elba Thriller ‘Beast’ About Killer Lion Set for August 2022 Release At TheWrap

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Episode 6 of HBO’s “The Nevers,” which is the freshman series’ Part 1 finale.) “The Nevers” dove deep into the backstory of Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) with Sunday’s Part 1 finale of the Joss Whedon-created show’s first season. With the reveal of the origins of Amalia — a.k.a. Molly, a.k.a. Stripe, a.k.a. Zephyr Alexis Navine — came the tale of how Sarah (Amy Manson) became the villainous Maladie whom fans have gotten to know throughout the show’s first five episodes. It turns out, that after Stripe was transported from the future by the Galanthi into Molly’s mid-suicide body in the Thames, she was brought into the asylum that Sarah had just been committed to. Sarah comforted Stripe/Molly/Amalia on her first night there, giving Stripe the confidence to tell Sarah the truth about where she came from and how the alien Galanthi is what empowered herself, Sarah and the other members of Victorian England’s “Touched” society. While Sarah is recovering and soon to be released from the asylum, Dr. Hague (Denis O’Hare) comes to visit Sarah and Amalia/Molly, saying he’s heard about their supernatural abilities and would love to bring them into a non-voluntary study of the Touched. Molly manages to convince Hague that she doesn’t actually have real powers, and that Sarah is truly the one who believes in it all — including the Galanthi and the idea that Molly came back from the future. This leads to Hague becoming uninterested in Amalia and instead take Sarah away for experiments — violent experiments that turn her into the Maladie we know. HBO “Reading Episode 6, I was aghast because of the storylines and because of where the storylines are going and will continue to go, and I’m sure, on other planets, or whatever is in store for us in the future,” Manson told TheWrap of “The Nevers” Part 1 finale reveals. “I think it was nice to kind of understand Stripe and understand Laura’s choices as an actress and what I was playing off of the first couple of episodes. Because Joss told us all separately our storylines and where we were all going, and it was only through talking to one another that we found we were able to piece together storylines. So it was just the reveal of why Laura as Amalia behaves the way she does and where she’s from and her soul from the future. It was just so clever, just like reading magic. They truly are the best scripts that I’ve ever read in my life… And to see what Laura’s done with Molly. I mean, she’s the queen of accents. It’s just all treasured.” Manson says “there was going to be a longer episode for the whole asylum section, but I think it played out just as well” with what ended up in Episode 6. “And I think you understand Sarah and Molly’s relationship within there,” “The Nevers” star added. “And I think the next stage would be to understand what Sarah went through at the hands of Hague. That’s where I would like to see the storyline go in the future, just to understand the magnitude and the depth of what she was subjected to.” Manson told us that Maladie’s turn, which stems from the pain inside her, was amplified by what Hague did to her. “Her turn is in her eyes. And she kind of renders even large men dumb to this intense gaze, this death stare that they refer to it as,” Manson said. “And it’s because she’s had so much pain inflicted on her within the asylum. She began to understand that, the more pain she had, the more powerful she became. So it’s to inflict pain on other people in order to make them freeze, to control them, to take power from them. And I hope that that gets explained more in the future. And I hope you actually see her workings at play, because I don’t think we’ve seen enough of that yet at all.” Episodes 7-12 of the first season of “The Nevers” are being led by new showrunner Philippa Goslett, who took over for Whedon after he exited the show due to exhaustion last fall, following completion through Episode 6. The writers are at work now, with production expected to begin in the coming months. “She’s picked really sound, adequate writers who are going to take the story I have no idea where, but I’m so excited,” Manson said of Goslett’s plans for Part 2. “And she’s so on top of it. And this is going to be something very different from– hopefully not different, in storyline sense from the first six, but it’s definitely going to be a shift in direction for a lot of characters. And I can’t wait to see the storylines open up for a lot of the other characters.” In particular, Manson would love to see Maladie get storylines with Hague, Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) and entering the orphanage. “I would like to see maybe Maladie live in an existence with these women. Maybe not within it, but to join forces with them on some mad mission to take down the Galanthi or figure out who the Galanthi is or where they are coming from, how many of them there are. The world is just so vast and it’s just going to keep getting bigger.” Readers can find TheWrap’s interview with Skelly and Donnelly about “The Nevers” Part 1 finale here.

The new mom continued her streak of glowing white sneakers.
Andrew Giuliani — who on Tuesday announced plans to run for governor of New York — made his public debut when he was just 7 years old at his father Rudy’s 1994 inauguration as the Big Apple’s mayor. And as we’re about to remind you, the moment became classic material for then “SNL” star Chris Farley. An excited, animated Andrew was by his dad’s side during the swearing-in ceremony, raising his hand and taking the oath as his dad did. A cute, father-son bonding moment captured for the world to see, for sure. But then it got, shall we say, awkward when the senior Giuliani went to the podium to deliver his inaugural address — and Andrew followed him. Andrew hammed it up but got distracted from Rudy’s lengthy, no-nonsense message. I mean, it’s hard not to look at the little guy and completely ignore everything Rudy’s saying. You can check out the original clip by clicking here. A few days later on “Saturday Night Live,” Farley lampooned the moment by slapping on a wig, snapping in some fake teeth and playing it to the hilt alongside Kevin Nealon playing the elder statesman. Beaming with love at Nealon as Rudy, Farley’s Andrew waved enthusiastically at the camera and blew kisses to the crowd, just as the real Andrew did. Then Farley took it to the next level, climbing on the podium to be at the same height as his dad so he could give him a massive bear hug, squeezing him tightly as “Rudy” continued his speech unfazed. And his zeal crescendoed. A lot. Like, a lot a lot. It’s a must-see for “SNL” fans. Check it out via the video up top. Republican Andrew Giuliani, Rudy’s 35-year-old son, announced Tuesday that he plans to run for governor of New York in 2022, taking on incumbent Democrat Andrew Cuomo. Like his father, Giuliani worked for former President Donald Trump. Unlike his father, Giuliani has never held public office before.

Just months after the first COVID-19 vaccines became available to the public, a large percentage of the population has been vaccinated. According to the latest statistics, 60 percent of adults over the age of 18 are at least partially vaccinated against the deadly virus. Now that children 12 and up are approved to get the jab, many people are wondering when younger children will be approved for vaccination. At Tuesday's White House COVID-19 Response Team Briefing, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the president and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, revealed the answer. Read on to find out when Dr. Fauci thinks the vaccine will be available to all ages—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Had COVID And Should Tell Your Doctor.The Vaccine Could Be Available to All Ages by the First Quarter of 2022Dr. Fauci revealed that "a couple" of companies are doing studies on the safety of vaccines for various ages, between twelve and nine, nine to six, six to two, and six months to two years, with the research "still on track." "It is likely, and almost certain that by the time we get to the end of this calendar year and the first quarter of 2022, that we will have enough information regarding safety and immunogenicity to be able to vaccinate children of any age," he revealed. RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to ScienceOne Step CloserLast week the CDC revealed that those 12 and over could and should get vaccinated, updating their guidance. "CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19," their new guidance states. "Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine."So follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Had COVID And Should Tell Your Doctor.

It's no news that processed foods, whether you're munching on salty snacks or sugary treats, aren't great for your waistline—especially if you're eating them in the place of fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy foods like legumes and nuts. However, what's even more concerning is processed food's ability to wreak major havoc on your health later down the line.In his new novel "Metabolical," which recently debuted on bookshelves everywhere, Robert H. Lustig, MD, MDL, a pediatric neuroendocrinologist exposes the many ugly truths of our current food system and modern medicine. He dives into the depths of eight pathologies within cells that belie all chronic disease, arguing that drugs are not an adequate solution to preventing or treating them. Instead, he demonstrates how the food we eat is the real cure (and enemy) for conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even cancer.Ultra-processed foods such as potato chips, candy bars, cheeses, and even cured meats are often teeming with added sugars, partially hydrogenated oils, and nitrates. In "Metabolical," a title that marries the workings of the body (metabolic) with that of mass-produced food, Big Pharma, and Big Government (diabolical), Lustig illustrates how all of these components found in processed foods can lead to type 2 diabetes and heart disease if consumed regularly and over time. Even more petrifying is the idea that these foods can contribute to cancer growth.How can eating processed foods lead to cancer?"Nitrates are turned in the intestine first into nitrites, then into nitrosoureas, which are known carcinogens and cause colon cancer," Lustig said in an interview with Eat This, Not That!Recent research has even suggested that nitrates on their own, which are found in cured meats such as pancetta, prosciutto, salami, and other processed meats including bacon, beef jerky, and sausages, may increase your risk of developing cardiovascular disease."And refined carbohydrates lead to insulin release and insulin resistance," he says. "Insulin is a growth factor that makes cancer cells grow, and glucose is their primary fuel."Some cancers, such as pancreatic cancer, feast on fructose (which makes up 50% of table sugar or sucrose) which allows them to become stronger and more harmful."So, while sugar is not a specific cause of cancer cell differentiation, it is a primary driver of cancer cell growth," Lustig adds.How has mass food production ruined society's health over the past several decades?Excluding 2020, Lustig says if you were to look at what people are dying from over the past 50 years, it's changed dramatically from infectious disease (such as influenza) to chronic non-communicable disease which includes heart disease, cancer, and dementia."These are the diseases of mitochondria. We now have the evidence for how ultra-processed foods—especially sugar, but also trans fats—interfere with mitochondria to cause these chronic diseases," he says. "In other words, food has gone from providing health to causing disease. The point is that it's not the food, it's what's been done to the food that makes it poisonous."What do you propose we do to improve our own metabolic function and avoid chronic and inflammatory diseases?It's simple. Lustig says the answer lies within three words: Eat real food."Real food is anything that came out of the ground or any animal that ate what came out of the ground," he adds.When the animal is fed something processed or the plant-based item has been stripped of nutrients and fiber (think whole wheat versus white bread), or chemicals are added to the animals' feed and to the growing crops, the food becomes a threat to our health."We have a limited capacity to metabolize these chemicals, and we are way over our limit," says Lustig.For more, be sure to check out 26 Worst Habits Slowing Your Metabolism, Says Science.

Leslie Odom Jr. has joined the cast of Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out 2,” an individual with knowledge of the deal told TheWrap. The actor, who received an Oscar nomination for his role in “One Night in Miami,” will join Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Dave Bautista, Janelle Monáe and Kathryn Hahn in the film. The casting comes two months after Johnson signed a $400 million-plus deal with Netflix to write and direct two sequels to the Oscar-nominated murder mystery film, with Craig returning as ace detective Benoit Blanc. Johnson will also produce with partner Ram Bergman, with shooting set to begin this summer in Greece. The deal is one of the largest for a streamer in history, and it provides Netflix a franchise as competition in the streaming space has increased dramatically over the last few months. The original “Knives Out,” a murder mystery in the vein of an Agatha Christie whodunit that was released in 2019, was an acquisition as part of a single picture deal with Media Rights Capital (MRC) and was released by Lionsgate. It made over $311 million worldwide on a budget of $40 million. The film rights were owned by Johnson and Bergman. Craig starred as detective Benoit Blanc investigating the death of the wealthy author Harlan Thrombey (played by the late Christopher Plummer in one of his final roles). The film boasted an impressive cast that included Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell. Rian Johnson also scored an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for his work. Odom Jr. will next be seen in New Line’s “Sopranos” prequel “The Many Saints of Newark” and sci-fi film “Needle in a Timestack” for writer and director John Ridley. Odom Jr. first broke playing Aaron Burr in musical “Hamilton” on Broadway for which he received a Tony. Netflix had no comment. Leslie Odom Jr. is repped by CAA, Untitled, and Jackoway Austen. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news. Read original story Leslie Odom Jr Joins Rian Johnson’s ‘Knives Out’ Sequel At TheWrap
