Here's the Scoop...

I've got goosebumps! Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. has revealed an official title and release date for their Blade Runner sequel.

The movie, starring Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto, will be called Blade Runner 2049 and open in theaters Oct. 6, 2017.

Alcon Entertainment will team with the virtual reality company Oculus to create and distribute content for the film through the new division Alcon Interactive, according to Deadline.

Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario) and co-stars Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Lennie James. Villeneuve told Entertainment Weekly in July that the new movie will also take place in dystopian Los Angeles.

"The climate has gone beserk -- the ocean, the rain, the snow is all toxic," he revealed.

The original Blade Runner was directed by Ridley Scott and opened in 1982. Scott, who will produce the sequel, previously said Ford will reprise Rick Deckard in "the third act," while Gosling is expected to lead the film.

"The fact that Ridley and Harrison wanted to extend that story and keep going was exciting enough," Gosling said in an interview with IGN in May. "Then, the idea of getting to be an actor and involved in that in some way? I kind of can't believe it."

I know I can't be the only person that's excited for this film's release. Are you ready for Blade Runner 2049? Well, we've got a year to go so...

Be Well,
Steve

Hugh Jackman announces 'Wolverine 3' title: 'Logan'
Hugh Jackman revealed Wednesday that the third Wolverine movie will be titled Logan.

The 47-year-old Australian actor, who plays the character in the Marvel cinematic universe, announced the official title by tweeting a photo of the film's poster.

Logan director James Mangold also shared the poster, along with a picture of the second page of the movie's script. Notes on the page appear to hint that Logan, aka Wolverine, may not survive the film.

"Now might be a good time to talk about the 'fights' described in the next 100 or so pages. Basically, if you're on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying, CG [expletive]athon, this ain't your movie.

In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when [expletive] falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get with something big and heavy like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they don't bounce. They will die.

As for our hero, well, he's older now and it's clear his abilities aren't what they once were. He's fading on the inside and his diminished healing factor keeps him in a constant state of chronic pain -- hence booze as a painkiller. So by all means, go ahead and worry about him."

The child's hand in the poster and the script's notes suggest that Jackman will pass the baton to a younger actor. The star had confirmed in 2015 that Wolverine 3 will mark his final appearance as the character.

"It felt like it was the right time to do it," he said of his impending exit on The Dr. Oz Show. "And let's be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I'm grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it."

Jackman debuted as Wolverine in the 2000 film X-Men and has since portrayed the character in six other movies. Logan opens in theaters March 3, 2017.

Who is the latest celeb to join Alicia Keys' no-makeup movement?

Gabrielle Union has joined the host of other celebrities who've followed Alicia Keys' lead to appear sans-makeup.

Union posted a selfie and video to Snapchat on Tuesday saying, "No makeup, head wrap, hey Alicia Keys I see you!"

Keys made the decision to stop wearing makeup -- even on TV and red carpet appearances -- which has caused other celebs to jump on board.

Queen of the contour, Kim Kardashian, recently appeared barefaced at the Balenciaga fashion show in Paris, and her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic approves.

"We've been so bombarded with heavy makeup on social media and YouTube, that people are just sick of it," he told Peoplestyle. "I think people are definitely going to start embracing a softer look."
