Chief Keef

Chief Keef Dropped From Interscope Records

Just two months after Trinidad James was reportedly dropped by the folks at Def Jam, another hot name from the 2012 rap game has been released from his major label contract.

News is breaking this afternoon that Chief Keef has been dropped from Interscope Records. The label, which initially gave Keef a deal worth $3 million, have yet to comment on the news. The rapper, on the other hand, was quick to confirm the rumors by uploading a screenshot of a text conversation with a friend he had shortly after the news broke. You can view that image at the …

EDITORIAL: The Potential ‘If I Stay’ Sequel Is Nothing Like The Original

Amidst all the coverage surrounding the failure of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For at the box office you may have missed the news that another weekend release, the adaptation of If I Stay, actually made more on its opening weekend than the film’s estimated production cost. That’s a lengthy way of saying it is a bonafide success, despite the fact critics largely panned the teen romance, and though it may seem impossible to those unfamiliar with the original story, a sequel is a very real possibility.

WARNING: Major If I Stay spoilers ahead (duh).

Vin Diesel May Have A (Major) Role In Another Marvel Film

Oh, Vin Diesel. You’re not the greatest actor of our generation, but you certainly know how to keep your name in the headlines.

This weekend, Vin Diesel decided to celebrate the success he and the rest of the Guadians Of The Galaxy have been experiencing by sharing a photo of his character, Groot, with fans on Facebook. At the bottom of the photo, Vin added a caption that reads “Vin and Marvel… you all made it happen! I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I’m Inhuman… Haha.” The original post can be found here.

Don’t Panic: ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Has Not Been Cancelled

Listen, folks. The internet is a fun and wild place where anyone can do and be virtually anything they desire. For some, that means helping others by creating a place for people to learn about the world around them. For others, it means creating chaos where there would otherwise be peace. This is a short story about the latter.

Over the weekend, a site known as Empire News broke a lot of digital hearts when it reported that Netflix had not only cancelled Orange Is The New Black, but that the streaming platform would be removing all previous episodes …

Will Mark Ruffalo And Marvel Take Us To ‘Planet Hulk’?

Mark Ruffalo has been doing a ton of interviews to promote his role in the new film Begin Again. Press are typically asked to only talk about the project being promoted, but as Ruffalo is part of one of the biggest franchises in cinema history (Marvel’s cinematic universe) nearly every conversation has found at least a small amount of time to ask about the thing that has been on the minds of comic movie fans since The Avengers: When will The Hulk return, and will there be another stand-alone Hulk film?

Steve Martin Denies ‘Father Of The Bride 3′ Rumors

Last night, UTG was one of countless blogs who posted a story about Steve Martin joining Father Of The Bride 3. We sourced the information from NikkiFinke, which has proven to be highly reliable since its launch. Unfortunately, it seems they were wrong.

Steve Martin took to Twitter earlier today to share his excitement about the Father news while simultaneously doing his part to downplay the rumors that such a film is even being planned. “So excited to read I’m doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven’t seen a script or been offered the role,” he wrote

RUMOR: ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3′ May Be Delayed Until 2017

In the weeks leading up to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 there was a story on a number of news sites that claimed Sony Pictures was planning to make a new Spider-Man film every year beginning in 2016. That was, of course, before the highly-anticipated sequel was panned by critics and fans alike worldwide. The film still made a couple hundred million at the box office, but nothing near what Sony had expected, and as a result it seems we may have to wait just a bit longer before Peter Parker returns to the big screen.

According to …

Rumor: Jared Leto May Be Marvel’s Doctor Strange

Just a day after news broke that Marvel had tapped Sinister filmmaker Scott Derrickson to direct their big screen adaptation of Doctor Strange, BadassDigest has hinted at one of the stars currently being considered for the film’s lead role.

According to a post made last night, writer Devin Faraci claims to know that Academy Award winner and 30 Seconds To Mars’ frontman Jared Leto is currently in talks to become Stephen Strange for the planned 2017 film. If true, the film would mark Leto’s first venture into the world of comic book films and would likely be followed with …

Prepare Yourselves: Atreyu Are About To Do Something Cool (We Think)

Earlier this year we spent an entire afternoon battling heart palpitations while considering the possibility of Atreyu returning from their hiatus to once more rock audiences around the world. We were so excited, in fact, that we ran a listicle so soon after the announcement we thought Buzzfeed would high five us (they never did). The buzz wore off a few days later however, and the band stopped making updates all over again.

Yesterday, every single social network controlled by Atreyu was updated with solid black imagery. Every profile picture, cover photo, and accompanying customizable space was turned black without …

‘Space Jam 2′ May Be In Development, But Lebron James Is Not Involved (Yet)

Space Jam 2 may be real, but not everything story related to Bugs Bunny’s latest adventure is based in truth.

When Deadline broke the news that Space Jam 2 was indeed a real project this weekend, their initial scoop mentioned that NBA star Lebron James had signed on to fill the role originally portrayed by sports icon Michael Jordan. Brian Windhorst at ESPN is now reporting that reps for James have denied that any project is in development. They say the film itself may be happening, but at this point Lebron James has not signed on to star in any …
