    The Fast And Furious 9 Trailer Is Here, and John Cena Is Dominic Toretto's Brother

    The official trailer of F9 promises one car flowing over the chasm and another one strapped to a rocket amongst a myriad of other attractive happenings. Unlike other movies in the franchise, this instalment has made attempts to rejuvenate its fans with some minor but crucial changes. To begin with, the trailer confirms that the title of the movie is actually F9, instead of Fast and The Furious 9. And here’s the hook: John Cena is playing Vin Diesel’s brother, and they are not on good terms. Ever since it was announced that Cena would be joining the Fast and Furious cast, fans have shown curiosity around his role. After the release of its first trailer, it is safe to say that both the fans of the franchise as well as the wrestling fans are in for a treat. Who doesn’t enjoy a gripping and violent sibling rivalry on the screen, anyway? However, don’t let the family drama divert your attention from the real antagonist. Enter Cipher (Charlize Theron). Fans of the franchise might recall that she’s the villain who’s been pulling all the strings for the past couple of movies. As expected, in this trailer, you can see her vindictive streak alive as she continues to manipulate and fuel Jakob’s (Cena) hatred for Dom. One of the things that have been revealed in the trailer includes a significant time jump. So, when we finally meet the characters, we’ll discover that at least a couple of years have passed since their last venture. Also, Han is back! Our favourite character is reuniting with his partner Dom, which makes this beast of a movie an interesting ride for sure. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think. Are you excited to see Dominic Torretto back on screen?

    Celebrations and Protests Mark Brexit from EU

    An era comes to an end as Britain finally frees itself from the 4-decade long relationship with the European Union. Hundreds of people gathered in Downing Street to mark the new beginning as powerful and emotional speeches in favour of Brexit were delivered. Just like the referendum the public was divided as some celebrated the exit while others mourned the government’s decision to do so. One hour before the chimes of Big Ben announced the historical moment in Europe, Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted for the nation, promising to take them “forward”. He said, “For many people, this is an astonishing moment of hope, a moment they thought would never come. Check out the full video of the celebrations."And there are many of course who feel a sense of anxiety and loss. "And then, of course, there is a third group - perhaps the biggest - who had started to worry that the whole political wrangle would never come to an end. He admired the European Union for all their efforts but said that the organisation no longer suited Britain and that is why the country has decided to say goodbye. Pubs and other public places across the UK organised parties to celebrate Brexit as speeches were delivered and songs were sung to show the support for the decision. However, Pro-EU and anti-Brexit parties organised protests to oppose Brexit and candlelight vigils were held in Scotland as it was one of the countries that did not vote in favour of the referendum.

    The Speaking Dead- Scientists Have Recreated the Sound of a 3000-Year-Old Egyptian Mummy

    If you think about it, no one is really sure about what a dinosaur sounds like. Sure, there is a sound that is played in movies such as Jurassic Park, but there is no evidence to support this claim. However, with the introduction of this new technology, scientists can re-create the sounds of the deceased individuals and species. In today’s science news, M. Howard, J. Schofield, J. Fletcher, K. Baxter, G. R. Iball and S. A. Buckley managed to recreate the sound of a 3000-year-old mummy of an Egyptian priest. Nesyamun was an ancient Egyptian priest and a scribe, who has been dead for over three thousand years. Nesyamun worked at the temple in Karnak when Ramses XI was in power. He died during his fifties, and his body was mummified. The mummification of the body was the core feature that facilitated this discovery. As a mummified state allows the soft tissues to decompose slowly, the researchers were able to recreate the voice by using CT scans to study the larynx and the throat. With these scans, the vocal tract can be reproduced in a computer model that can be printed using a 3-D printer. If this technology is successful, it can be further improved to retrace the voice of several other extinct species.

    Is it Time to Revive the Braniston Hashtag?

However, this reunion has sparked rumours, and fans are interested to know about the relationship they both share.During the Golden Globes Ceremony of 2020, Brad Pitt was asked about his ex-wife, Jennifer and he said that she’s a “good friend”. To confirm this, Aniston was also seen smiling as the actor won a Golden Globe for his performance in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. You can watch Brad Pitt’s acceptance speech here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GV3CR6l1q4 But the internet and celebrity gossip tabloids went crazy when the two stars were photographed together behind the scenes at SAG awards with Brad Pitt holding Aniston’s hand while she proceeds to move away. Source: VogueSource: Elite DailyNow, we know that we are overthinking this small interaction way too much but can you blame the fans that were seriously heartbroken when such a high-profile couple broke up, shattering our dreams of finding true love? At SAG Awards, both the actors were recognized for their work in 2019 and during Pitt’s humorous speech when he poked fun at himself for a guy “who does not get along with his wife” the camera zoomed in to record Aniston's expressions while she softly laughed and applauded fellow winner’s sense of humour. Source: Elle And if Brad Pitt thought that being away from the audience could prevent the audience from recording his reaction to Aniston’s win, he was mistaken. A secret camera recorded Brad Pitt smiling to the screen while standing outside the room, watching Jennifer receive the accolade and well, the camera caught him getting a little teary-eyed at the emotional speech she delivered. Watch her acceptance speech for The Morning Show here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1hAV-ZrRpIE! reported that the actor “stopped everything” to listen to her as she mounted the stairs for the first time since her win with the cast of FRIENDS at the SAG Awards.

And if you think that cute little interaction was all we got from the awards, then we have a little surprise for you. According to the latest celebrity news, both the actors attended the same after-party but sadly, they weren’t photographed together. But does that mean they didn't talk or meet? Certainly not. Source: New York Post Whoever has been in the Braniston scene since they were married know how rough of a time it was for both the actors in 2005 where every little move was photographed while they dealt with the stress of public scrutiny and celebrity gossip tabloids involved in their divorce. A source disclosed to US Weekly that, "Brad and Jen have a wonderful connection that might seem flirtatious at times. They dig each other’s sense of humour and have infectious energy when they’re together, but they insist things are purely platonic and nothing more than that." Pitt and Aniston both know about the “hysteria” that surrounds their relationship as back in 2005, people began to use t-shirts saying “Team Aniston’ when the artists broke up after a supposed rumour of Brad cheating on her with his Mr & Mrs Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie. However, it is always nice to see fellow artists respecting each other despite their history, and we certainly hope we get to see more of the two in 2020.

    AFC Championship Game: Tony Romo Takes Up the “Sky Judge” Role

    National Football League (NFL) does not have a “sky judge;” a jury official who watches the match on the TV and tells the on-field referees about anything they miss during the game. However, Tony Romo seemingly served this job well at the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.  Tony Romo is known as the commentator who provides accurate game predictions for the audience. All in all, his thirteen predictions out of fifteen were found correct during the AFC playoffs. This time, however, Romo took the limelight by beseeching a late penalty from the referees in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s AFC championship game.With the Titans’ defence against Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth quarter, Romo noted 12 players on the field from Tennessee. Pointing out this discrepancy, Romo mocked the officials for how long it took them to throw the flag. The referees took a while to configure the situation, and as teams broke from a timeout called by Titans, they finally announced a penalty. Meanwhile, Romo provided a joking narration of the refs’ situation and the audience’s confusion on the broadcast: “There’s a flag which they should have called 10 minutes ago when I said there were 12 people on the field. I think they just decided to start talking about it now: ‘Can they play with 12?’ ‘Nope, it’s 11.’ ‘You’re sure?’ ‘Yes. Can’t play with 12. We’ve still got that rule.'” It is believed that Romo’s commentary may have been the actual reason why the flag was thrown. According to Former NFL referee Terry McAuley’s tweet, it seems like the New York officiating office contacted the referee on the field after Romo’s conjure. Romo continued mocking the referees and said: “They could have just heard us say it and said, ‘Hey listen, by the way, someone says we had 12 out there.’” Although Romo witnessing a potential penalty before the referees do not speak well for the officials, it can’t be denied that a booth with a monitor has a better field coverage. Thus, positioning an official as a “sky judge” in NFL games can help cover this front.
