“Ashamed” Kevin Smith to donate future royalties

After many allegations of sexual harassment, assault and rape against Harvey Weinstein. Writer, director and actor Kevin Smith spoke out on social media in answer to a Twitter prompt.

“He financed the first 14 years of my career – and now I know while I was profiting, others were in terrible pain,” Smith said of the powerful producer in a tweet on Oct. 9. “It makes me feel ashamed.”


Now, Smith has vowed to donate all future royalties, from his Weinstein-produced films to women in film, a nonprofit organisation.

Smith spoke about his decision, on the latest episode of his Hollywood babble-on podcast. Telling co-host Ralph Garman:

“My entire career is tied up with the man… It’s been a weird f***ing week, man. I just wanted to make some f***ing movies and that’s it. That’s why I came, that’s why I made ‘Clerks.’ And no f***ing movie is worth all this. Like, my entire career, f**k it, take it. It’s wrapped up in something really f***ing horrible.”

Smith hopes the money he’s donating will help women succeed without having to encounter men like Weinstein, in Hollywood.

He added, that even if the Weinstein Company goes under, he’ll donate $2,000 a month, to Women in Film. He has also offered to serve as a mentor to female filmmakers.

Trailer-Justice League

Below is the final trailer, for next month’s Justice League. I have to say, it looks pretty spectacular.

Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Amber Heard as Mera, with J.K.

Fan makes death threat to Dan Fogler

This weekend saw thousands of comic book fans attained London film and comic con. However, one fan had dark intentions…

Fantastic beats and where to find them actor Dan Fogler, made an impromptu and unannounced appearance at the Heavy Metal Magazine stand, to promote his new comic book. 

Obviously, as soon as Harry Potter fans heard he was there, his line grew very long, very quickly. He signed prints, posed for selfies and all was well. 
However, staff were alerted to an individual acting suspiciously in line. 

When asked why he was there, he stated he was on a mission to kill Dan Fogler, whom he beloved was the evil wizard Grindelwald using Polyjuice to disguise himself as “Jacob Kowalski”, Fogler’s character from Fantastic Beasts.

Luckily, a quick thinking member of staff was able to convince the deranged fan that Fogler is indeed, just an actor, as Kowalski was from the nineteen-twenties, so couldn’t possibly be at a convention in 2017. 

The fan then insisted Grimwald had used a “time turner” to move forward in time. To which, the member of staff reminded him that they only work backwards. 

The man then concluded that Dan, must be the grandson of Kowalski and decided to go visit Benedict Cumberbatch instead. He was escorted out of the building by security. 

Price: £8.06
