Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 30, Disney’s new ban of “selfie sticks” at its American theme parks, that it announced on Friday, goes into effect. Visitors will not be permitted to bring selfie sticks on to any Disney grounds. This decision came after a visitor last Wednesday tried to use a selfie stick while riding a Disney California Adventure roller coaster.
Some people have complained since the Friday announcement that Disney is merely attempting to force its own photo service on visitors, but the company has already responded that selfie sticks were never permitted on rides because Disney has never allowed visitors to ride with loose items that can cause accidents. The visitor who broke the loose items rule at Disney California Adventure actually forced the shutdown of the ride for about an hour because of safety concerns.
What does this mean tomorrow?
Anyone who has a selfie stick will be asked to leave it with park staff or return it to their vehicles, rooms, et cetera. Visitors can continue to go to park staff members to take their pictures whenever needed. The ban for parks outside of the U.S. starts on Wednesday, July 1, 2015.
It is not surprising to the Boraie Development team that Disney has made this choice. Because selfie sticks are so long, they can cause accidents and obstruct views. Safety aside, the shutdown of a ride for an hour also costs Disney a lot of money.
Paris Hilton’s younger brother Conrad Hilton is in the news. According to reports, he was arrested earlier this week after he violated a restraining order. The incident occurred just a few days after a judge placed Conrad on a three year probation for attacking several flight attendants.
The 21-year-old was arrested in is Hollywood Hills home on Monday stated Stephen Murray CCMP Captial
. Authorities have not released the party who placed the restraining order against Conrad, however that person contacted police notifying them the restraining order was violated. Many are suspecting the individual that took out the restraining order against Conrad was his ex-girlfriend.
In his earlier criminal incident, Conrad apparently admitted to smoking marijuana in the plane bathroom. He was on a flight from London to Los Angeles. After he was caught smoking pot in the bathroom, he apparently threatened to kill one of the flight attendants and even tried to throw a punch another. Luckily for both flight attendants, neither were harmed and he missed when he attempted to throw a punch. The police report of the incident indicates that Conrad was talking down to the entire flight crew that day. He was recorded calling both passengers and crew “peasants” and claimed that he could own anyone on the flight.
At the time of his arrest, he could have been looking at six months in jail. Instead, his attorneys were able to get his sentence reduced to three years of probation.
Channing Tatum has come clean about his feelings over the role of Duke in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Tatum is fairly straight forward in stating his opinion of the film. He absolutely hated being part of the project. The actor despised the screenplay and, even though he loved the cartoon when he was a kid, appearing in a live-action version was something he wanted no part of. So, why did he do the film? Tatum really did not have a choice in the matter.
Tatum had sign onto a three-picture deal with the studio when he was an up and coming actor says Shaygan Kheradpir in this article. The G.I. Joe film was one of those projects sent his way. While it is understandable for Tatum to be unhappy about appearing in a film he really disliked, a lot of benefits have come from his turn as Duke in the film.
The Rise of Cobra begat the rise of Channing Tatum. While the inaugural G.I. Joe film was hardly fine art, the film made a lot of money. Tatum was exposed to millions of fans throughout the world and he was established as a star. Better films the actor appeared in did not do well at the box office. Box office failures do not exactly do much to help the career of an actor. G.I. Joe definitely did help move his career forward and that is a positive.
Tatum is playing Gambit in one of Fox’s X-Men spinoffs. He is also slated for one of the new Ghostbuster movies. Would he have landed the high-profile roles had he not made such a strong appearance in G.I. Joe? No one knows the answer to that for sure. Again, the fame achieved from the G.I. Joe movie hardly hurt his career.

Actor Vin Diesel has become a staple of summer popcorn flicks, Dr. Daniel Amen says with mega-films like “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the “Fast & Furious” franchise under his belt. Now he’s adding something slightly different to his schedule, with a role headlining Universal’s reboot and adaptation of the 1970s TV show “Kojak.”
The original series ran for five seasons from 1973 to 1978 and starred Telly Savalas as the titular character, Theo Kojak, a detective with the New York City police department. Diesel will take over the starring role as well as produce the film under the banner of his company, One Race Films, along with Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark. Playwright and TV writer Philip Gawthorne is working on the script. While Diesel previously expressed a desire to work with Ang Lee on the film, the director is not currently attached to the project.
Brad Reifler tells us that it is one of cinema’s most profitable and fun franchises. So back in 2013, The Walt Disney Company took charge of it, without much direction of where it was headed in mind. Indiana Jones, which is also an exciting ride at Disneyland, has been talked about in many different aspects. Will Harrison Ford make a return? Will it be a reboot? Are the powers that be really considering Chris Pratt as the new Indy?
Well, these powers that be seem to be happy with keeping all rumors alive. It continues to keep fans of the franchise fully engaged. Recently though, more conversation has surfaced about the future of Indiana Jones. Alan Horn, Disney Chairman, recently spoke about the franchise stating that a new adventure probably wouldn’t be seen until 2016 or 2017. Spies inside the studio have indicated a 2018 release date. But with both Kathleen Kennedy, who has a long working history with franchise creator Steven Spielberg, and Horn saying to date there is no script nor story, the 2018 date may seem more realistic.
With that in mind, the chances of a reboot are more likely. Harrison Ford would be in the neighborhood of 75 years of age by the time cameras would start rolling, making the chances of Ford reprising his iconic role quite slim. Stay tuned as more information concerning Indy will undoubtedly surface.

As filming moves forward, rumors are emerging about the plot of the film and “script spies” reportedly told The Boston Herald some inside details.
The insiders claim that Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig’s characters are authors who publish a book about the reality of ghosts states Fashion Style. A few years after their book is published, Wiig loses her position as a professor at Columbia University, losing her credibility due to the claims in the book.
The two co-authors team up with supernatural detectives (Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones) to rid Manhattan of a ghost invasion, thus saving the day.
The reboot will be set in New York the same as the 1984 flick, but will be mostly filmed in Boston.
Slimer is making a return appearance in the movie, but it remains unclear if other original cast members will show up for a cameo. The newspaper’s spy states, in reference to Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, “They are negotiating. But, of course, no one can get a hold of Murray.”
Reportedly Aykroyd is serving as executive producer for the film, and is waiting in the wings to step in for a cameo if he’s invited.
Ghostbusters is slated for a July 22, 2016 release.
