Here's the Scoop...

A new trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049' is out and great gravy, does it looks amazing! I cannot wait!

Ryan Gosling is on the case in the second trailer for upcoming sci-fi sequel, Blade Runner 2049.

The clip, released Monday, features Gosling seeking out former Blade Runner Harrison Ford to help him with a new case dealing with the series' signature artificial lifeforms, the replicants.

Gosling is seen confronting a replicant played by Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista during a conversation that turns violent as the former WWE star throws Gosling through a wall.

Jared Leto, who portrays a villain in the film, also appears as he discusses how replicants will soon rise to prominence.

"Every leap of civilization was built off the backs of slaves," Leto says. "Replicants are the future, but I can only make so many. I have the lock, and he has the key."

Produced by original helmer Ridley Scott and directed by Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 is set to arrive in theaters Oct. 6. The film also stars Robin Wright and Ana de Armas.

"Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years," reads the synopsis.

Come on, October!

Be Well,

R. Kelly 'unequivocally denies' abusive cult allegations
R. Kelly is denying allegations that he is holding women against their will as part of an abusive cult inside his rented properties in Atlanta and Chicago.

"Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him," the singer's lawyer Linda Mensch said in a statement. "Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations."

The accusations come from a BuzzFeed report released Monday that cites three unnamed sets of parents who state they have not heard from their daughters for months as Kelly brainwashed them as part of a cult.

The parents said that their daughters, who are over the age of consent and who got with Kelly to further their music careers, have their daily activities controlled by the 50-year-old including what they can wear and eat. Kelly has also been accused of demanding sex with the women and recording it.

Three ex-members of Kelly's entourage also came forward to support the parents' statements regarding his controlling behavior.

Joycelyn Savage, who is currently living with Kelly, spoke with TMZ Monday and denied that she was living in a cult. "I am in a happy place in my life and I'm not being brainwashed. I am totally fine and happy where I'm at," she said.

Kelly was previously acquitted of 14 charges of making child pornography in 2008 following the release of a videotape that allegedly featured the performer having sex with a 14-year-old girl.


Report: Jordan Peele, Chelsea Peretti welcome first child
Celebrity couple Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti have reportedly welcomed their first child.

The 38-year-old actor and director and 39-year-old actress welcomed a baby boy, Beaumont Gino, on July 1, according to E! News.

Peele and Peretti have yet to confirm their son's birth, although Peretti did return to Instagram last week following a two-week absence. The actress announced her pregnancy in February, shortly after news broke that Beyoncé was expecting twins.

"Beyonce schmonce," she captioned a photo of her baby bump at the time.

Peele and Peretti started dating in 2013, and got engaged in November 2015. The actress confirmed in April 2016 that she and Peele had eloped, with their beloved rescue dog as the "only witness."

"Eloped a bit ago. Our only witness was this lil guy," she wrote on Instagram.

Peele is known for starring on Key and Peele with Keegan-Michael Key, and released his directorial debut, Get Out, in February. Peretti plays Gina Linetti on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which will return for a fifth season in the fall.

Josh Brolin on 'Deadpool 2': 'It's even funnier than the first one'
Josh Brolin teased his turn as time-traveling mutant Cable in Deadpool 2 during a new interview with Good Morning America.

"Cable can be very funny. He can be a lot of different things but he also can be very funny," the actor said of his character who, despite having a serious demeanor, still has a sense of humor to keep up with the wacky antics of Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool.

"There's a lot of stuff going on in Deadpool and it's very surprising and it will be very satisfying when you see it," Brolin continued about the film. "It's even funnier than the first one."

Brolin, who was at first hesitant to take on the role, said that it was his wife Kathryn Boyd convinced him to read the script. "My wife just said, 'read it, like why are you even thinking, just read it,' and I read it and I laughed harder than I've laughed in a very long time," he said.

Brolin was cast as Cable in April. Deadpool 2 directed by David Leitch, is set to arrive in theaters June 1, 2018 and also stars Julian Denison, Zazie Beetz as mercenary Domino and Leslie Uggams who is reprising her role as Blind Al.

The 49-year-old teased in June the makeup work required to portray Cable as he shared a photo of himself with half his face covered in prosthetics. The positioning of Brolin's makeup seems to indicate that the 49-year-old will closely resemble Cable's look from the comics as the character is often featured with a mechanical eye and a scarred face.


Ryan Phillippe hospitalized after breaking leg in 'freak accident'
Ryan Phillippe was rushed to the hospital after breaking his leg in a "freak accident" over the weekend.

The 42-year-old Shooter star said Monday on Twitter that he "required surgical attention" after injuring himself at a family outing.

"hey, guys. i didn't injure myself doing a stunt or anywhere near the set of shooter. i was the victim of a freak accident during a family outing," Phillippe wrote.

"my leg is badly broken & required surgical attention, but i will make a full recovery, am in good hands, and will be back in action soon," he said. "thank you for all the well wishes, support, & concern.

"also a special thanks to the paramedics & first responders who helped me at the scene & to the medical staff caring for me now," the star added. "i will keep you updated on my progress."

Phillippe had shared a photo of himself in his hospital bed Sunday night, writing, "i'm going to be ok & i appreciate your concern." He later tweeted, "this sucks," but didn't offer a more detailed explanation at the time.

Phillippe plays Bob Lee Swagger on Shooter, which will return for a second season Tuesday on USA Network. He said in an interview with Collider published in November that he insisted on doing all of his own stunts for the show.

"I said, 'I want that to be the calling card of our show,'" the star recalled. "There's not a lot of action in the television marketplace right now, with this kind of conspiracy thriller style of action, and I stay in really decent shape."

"I was determined. I knew I'd be banged up 'cause I'm 42 years old now. I'm not a kid anymore," he confessed. "But I was approaching it like a football season, and I'd heal up after we finished."

Which Emmy winner will star in NBC's live staging of 'A Few Good Men'?

Alec Baldwin is to play U.S. Marine Col. Nathan Jessep in NBC's live staging of A Few Good Men, the network announced Monday.

Aaron Sorkin is adapting his own play for the planned 2018 broadcast, which he will also executive produce.

"Alec Baldwin is the gift that keeps on giving at NBC, and we're excited to have him starring in Aaron Sorkin's towering work as we expand our live theater imprint beyond musicals," Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "No stranger to live television, Alec is the most multi-faceted actor in the world and his range is incomparable. He will put his own inimitable stamp on the role of Col. Jessep in a play that is still as surprising and relevant as ever, from one of the most gifted writers working today."

"Alec is one of our greatest actors. Having him play this role -- live onstage for a television audience -- is a dream come true. This will be a brand new take on Nathan Jessep and I expect that Alec is going to bust through TV screens and right into living rooms," Sorkin added.

The play was previously adapted as an iconic, 1992 movie, which starred Jack Nicholson as Jessup. Baldwin is best known for his work on the sitcom 30 Rock and sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live.
