Maxwell

Five years after his first stint, entertainment guru and the brain behind Slize Entertainment, Ehimwenma Maxwell has put out his second major movie, The Interview. His first movie, Dirty Game, released in 2016 is still making waves on YouTube.

Speaking with The Guardian, Ehimwenma said The Interview was inspired and hinged on the experience of two brothers who went in search of better jobs and greener pastures, something many young Nigerians today relate with.

The movie stars notable actors and actresses including Charles Inojie, Shaggybes, Charles Okocha, Treasure Daniel, Julius Oluchi, Adim Williams, Merenma Umeh, Queenan Mma, Tony Edozie, and Ehimwenma Maxwell, among others.

Jackie Mason, comic who perfected amused outrage, dies at 93

NEW YORK (AP) — Jackie Mason, a rabbi-turned-comedian whose feisty brand of standup comedy led him to Catskills nightclubs, West Coast talk shows and Broadway stages, has died. He was 93.

Mason died Saturday at 6 p.m. ET at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan after being hospitalized for over two weeks, the celebrity lawyer Raoul Felder told The Associated Press.

The irascible Mason was known for his sharp wit and piercing social commentary, often about being Jewish, men and women and his own inadequacies. His typical style was amused outrage.

“Eighty percent of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe,” he once joked. Another Mason line was: “Politics doesn’t make strange bedfellows, marriage does.” About himself, he once said: “I was so self-conscious, every time football players went into a huddle; I thought they were talking about me.”

His death was mourned far and wide, from fellow

The Smugness of Space Jam 2 and Corporate Universes

Two critics weigh in on the IP apocalypse and what happens when the main unit of entertainment is not TV or film but corporate universe.

The strangest thing about Space Jam: A New Legacy, the “standalone sequel” to the 1996 hit, is that an algorithm played by Don Cheadle is the villain of the story but also dead-on when it comes to the goals of the movie itself: What is it if not an attempt to suck viewers into the WB Serververse? Take the moment LeBron James, playing himself, starts drafting his fantasy team for a basketball game that will determine the fate of the world (or at least the chunk of it following him on Twitter). He announces, with an Oscar-worthy show of enthusiasm, that “we’re going to need the most powerful Warner Bros. characters for this team” and then immediately begins listing his picks —

Entertainment wars of the future will go beyond video streaming

Digital Media updates

TV’s streaming wars, pitting the biggest media companies against tech concerns such as Amazon and Apple, have barely begun. But it is not too early to make out the next battle lines that are forming, as today’s giants set their sights on an even bigger prize: dominance in online entertainment in all its forms.

The future struggle will involve reaching beyond video to monopolise the attention of audiences in the home and on the go in all types of entertainment. And it will bring “one subscription to rule them all”, as the biggest companies use their ever-expanding armoury of digital properties to squeeze out smaller entertainment rivals.

Netflix is among the first to lay the groundwork. It has recently hired experts in podcasting and video games as it looks for more

How Disney’s former child stars are fighting to change the entertainment industry

There’s something eerie about Peter Pan, a boy frozen forever in childhood. But for many former child stars, it’s not so far from the truth. Over the past year, a reckoning has been taking place as the lives of these celebrities – from Britney Spears to Demi Lovato – have been re-examined. Many are reclaiming their narratives, and reflecting on being hounded, bullied and attacked by the very people who helped make them famous in the first place. And many of these people, whose lives have unfolded under the glare of the media and the scrutiny of the public, are bound together by one unique origin story: they got their big break on the Disney Channel.

It was the starting point for not just Spears and Lovato but also Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Hudgens, Ryan Gosling, Selena Gomez, Zac Efron, The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus. While they
