After the near-death experience of Toy Story 3, the toys of Toy Story are naturally going to react to that traumatic experience by finding solace in each other’s tiny plastic arms. Bo was Woody’s love interest in the first two Toy Story films, but those of you who saw Toy Story 3 will remember that Bo Peep was mysteriously absent. The only reference to her disappearance was this sad bit between Woody and Rex: Woody: We’ve lost friends along the way… Wheezy… and Etch and… Rex: Bo Peep? Woody: …Yeah. Even – even Bo. There have been fantheories and headcanons swirling around ever since, including theories of Bo Peep being sold at a yard sale, getting lost, or even running away. One of the more pragmatic views is that she wasn’t included because she would never survive the incinerator scene. Because she’s porcelain, she would have cracked and broken the…Continue Reading
Last year during a Reddit AMA, Jennifer Lee​, one of the co-directors of Disney’s ​Frozen​, revealed that mind-blowing theory that connected Tangled and Frozen? According to her Frozen co-director, Chris Buck, Elsa and Anna’s parents didn’t die at sea like most believed, but instead, had a baby at sea before they were shipwrecked, and then they all washed up on the shores of a jungle island where they built a tree house to live in before meeting a tragic end when the parents were later eaten by a leopard. Buck clarified the relationship during an interview with MTV this week. “When you’re working on a feature, you have a lot of time to think about stuff because it takes four years to make one. I think Jen and I were walking to a meeting, and I just start to tell her the entire story … [I]n my little head, Anna…Continue Reading
The popular energy drink is a must-have for many of us to help us in the morning after the night before – or even students trying to pull an all-nighter for an essay deadline. But a new infographic has revealed what’s actually happening to your body in the 24 hours after you drink Red Bull. The graphic by website Personalise.co.uk shows that blood pressure and heart rate increase in the first 10 minutes, while withdrawal symptoms occur in the final 12-24 hours. The breakdown details the initial spike in energy followed by the dastardly sugar crash. But side effects from Red Bull can include headaches irritability and even constipation. The researchers say: “Guidelines for caffeine are 400mg per day and so having a can of this every day shouldn’t pass this, yet the sugars and addiction that can be produced from doing this is something you should consider.’ They also…Continue Reading
Drake’s most recent release, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” finally broke the platinum sales award threshold of 1 million units in the US since it being released in February. The project was certified Platinum by Nielsen Music. If you count streaming, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” was Platinum back in March. However, the project sold just under 8,000 units this past week, which makes it now Platinum off of sales only! Last year, no one received a platinum certification until Taylor Swift got hers in November. Rapper J. Cole did reach a worldwide platinum certification earlier this year, but he has yet to go platinum in the US. Drake is the first artist who released a record this year and achieved such an accomplishment. It is also Drake’s fourth record in a row that has received a US platinum selling status, which means selling at least…Continue Reading
Motorists and passengers in England and Wales are being warned they will soon be breaking the law if they smoke in a vehicle carrying a person under 18. From 1 October, they face fixed penalty fines of £50 – with drivers at risk of being fined twice if they have failed to stop a passenger smoking and are smoking themselves. Smoking in a car with an open sunroof will still render adults liable to fines if there are under-18s aboard, though a 17-year-old who is smoking alone in a private vehicle will not be committing an offence. Sitting in the open doorway of an enclosed vehicle is also covered by the legislation. The new rules do not cover e-cigarette use and will only apply to motorhomes, campervans and caravans when they are being used as vehicles, not when they are being used as living spaces. The British Lung Foundation welcomed…Continue Reading
The 1st TV Promo for the upcoming film Reportedly Aired in South Korea. The TV spot also shows unreleased footage from “The Force Awakens,” according to multiple outlets. The movie, which takes place 30 years after “Return of the Jedi,” opens in theaters Dec. 18. Most of the trailer is made up of footage we’ve already seen in previous teasers, but it opens with a wide shot of a snowy, rocky landscape where thousands of stormtroopers and officers are grouped before a stage where a lone figure stands before them. We saw this scene in the second trailer, released in April, but it was from far back in the crowd. Only being 30 seconds long, it doesn’t really disappoint! Watch the trailer below: View on YouTube The film stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie and Pip Anderson. Plans for…Continue Reading
According to maps included in BBC reporter Andrew Hosken’s new book ‘Empire of Fear: Inside the Islamic State’, the terror group want to control the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe within the next five years. The Sharia-governed caliphate would stretch as far north as the Pyrenees and the Balkans and as far south as central Africa, and spans from the Western coast of Africa to the border of China. Hosken told The Daily Record that ISIS would find it extremely difficult to actually carry out their chilling plan. Once they have their caliphate, they plan to turn against the rest of the world. They envisage the whole world being under their rule. They have 60 nations against them, including the United States and Russia, so one would think that is pretty unlikely. But one would have thought the first steps were unlikely as well According to Hosken’s…Continue Reading
A new study shows that teenagers who use social media sites for more than two hours every day are more likely to suffer from feelings of depression and even suicidal thoughts. The study, published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, analysed data collected from 750 students for the 2013 Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey. The researchers found a link between heavy social media use and increased likelihood of mental health problems, including psychological distress and suicidal thoughts. They also concluded that if children are using social networks frequently, it should serve as an indicator to anyone supporting the child that action might be needed. The results corroborate some previous findings on the connection between social media and the mental health of teens, wrote the authors, although other studies, of university students, found no such relationship. The discrepancy could reflect a difference in the way depressive symptoms were measured,…Continue Reading
No major superhero film has opened at below $35 million since “The Green Lantern” in 2011, according to Forbes. “Fantastic Four” had a 9 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes as of Saturday, but has so far earned $11.3 million, putting the poorly reviewed superhero movie on track for a $28-million weekend, even though 20th Century Fox spent upwards of $120 million to make the new Fantastic Four Movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fantastic Four was expected to clear at least $40 million, although many expected it to approach $50 million. No one’s sure what the film’s start means for the sequel, which is already dated for June 2017. “While we’re disappointed, we remain committed to these characters and we have a lot to look forward to in our Marvel universe,” said Fox domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson, declining to comment specifically on Fantastic Four 2. That number leaves the…Continue Reading
Former One Direction member Zayn Malik, 22, has called off his engagement with Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, also 22. Sources say he called off the engagement that has left Perrie “Completely devastated’ two weeks ago. “She’s been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she’s obviously devastated,” the source tells PEOPLE Magazine.   “Perrie’s being supported by her bandmates, but she’s really in pieces about this.”   The two teenage heart-throbs got engaged in August of 2013, pleasing millions of One Direction fans. Although they have had their rough times, Edwards stood by Malik as he made the decision to quit the chart-topping band in March. “He wanted to go and spend some time with his family and missus,” former bandmate Liam Payne said in May. After getting engaged, the couple were hit by rumours about when they would wed, but never set concrete plans.…Continue Reading
