Johnny Depp Files for Defamation Case Delay to Film ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’

Johnny Depp Files for Defamation Case Delay to Film ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’
Actor Johnny Depp has filed documents at the Fairfax Country, Virginia, court to delay the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, so that he can proceed with filming for his role in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3” in London.

Depp sued Heard in March, 2019, over an op-ed piece she wrote for the Washington Post titled “I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change” where he is not named. Under Virginia law, where the Post is printed, plaintiffs can sue for defamation by inference.

The court’s current dates for the trial are Jan. 11 through Jan. 28, 2021. However, Warner Bros. is planning to commence principal photography for “Fantastic Beasts 3” from October in London and will finish only by the end of February 2021. Depp has requested the court to delay the hearing to a period between March and June, 2021.

Michael B. Jordan Honors Chadwick Boseman: ‘I’m Dedicating the Rest of My Days to Live the Way You Did’

Michael B. Jordan Honors Chadwick Boseman: ‘I’m Dedicating the Rest of My Days to Live the Way You Did’
Michael B. Jordan has shared a touching tribute to his “Black Panther” co-star Chadwick Boseman, following the actor’s shocking death due to colon cancer on Aug. 28.

The two starred together in the blockbuster “Black Panther,” which made Boseman a household name, in addition to the star of Marvel’s first Black superhero film. Jordan played the villain Erik Killmonger, who faced off against Black Panther and was revealed to be his long-lost cousin.

The two actors knew each other long before they shared the screen together. In a 2018 Howard University commencement speech, Boseman said he turned down a role on “All My Children” early in his career because of the stereotypical depiction of the character. Coincidentally, Jordan ended up being recast in the role when he was 16.

“You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching,

‘MTV Video Music Awards’ Review: Lady Gaga Almost Saves a Show Unsure of How to Go On in a Pandemic
Before proceeding any further, let’s acknowledge the clear superstars of the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards: Lady Gaga’s mask designers. They should be given their own awards, at some point, for being keeping us on the edge of our seats during a show that has never drummed up much suspense about winners, even in its early glory days, let alone now. The best thing about this year’s telecast was how the pandemic has given Gaga an excuse to return to the slightly scary fashion of her early glory days, most particularly with a very au courant focus on what looked like avant-garde gas masks, sometimes with digital readouts.

The first outlandish visor in Sunday night’s ongoing series was a beautifully uninviting encumbrance by Cecilio Castrillo that was pretty in metallic pink, but the standout mask, credited to Lance V. Moore, was one that looked like it had

Ryan Coogler on Chadwick Boseman: ‘He Was an Epic Firework Display’
Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler has issued a statement on the unexpected death of Chadwick Boseman, who led the Marvel movie as King T’Challa. Two years after making his Marvel debut in “Captain America: Civil War,” Boseman took on the leading role for the standalone “Black Panther” movie with the “Fruitvale Station” and “Creed” filmmaker, delivering a superhero movie that transcended the McU to emerge as one of the defining blockbusters of the 21st century. Read Coogler’s statement in full below.

Before sharing my thoughts on the passing of the great Chadwick Boseman, I first offer my condolences to his family who meant so very much to him. To his wife, Simone, especially.

I inherited Marvel and the Russo Brothers’ casting choice of T’Challa. It is something that I will forever be grateful for. The first time I saw Chad’s performance as T’Challa, it was
