The rumors that Bow Wow abused his ex-fiancée Erica Mena haven’t put his career on hold at all.

The multitalented entertainer announced his very own late night TV show this morning, and if it’s anything like what he described, it’ll be very impressive when it hits the air. Though he doesn’t give a name or premiere date, Shad does tell us that he wants to have some very high-profile guests (Michelle Obama, Kobe Bryant, J. Cole, and more). He also opens up about why he feels the show is necessary.

Check out what he had to say just above. Will you be tuning in?

The Fast & Furious franchise lives on.

According to the latest reports, the ninth and tenth films in the beloved series will hit theaters in 2019 and 2021, respectively. Just Jared reports:

We already knew that Fast 8 is going to be released on April 14, 2017 and now we know that new films in the franchise will be released every two years. The ninth movie will hit theaters on April 19, 2019 and the tenth movie will race into cinemas on April 2, 2021. Yep, that’s over five years away from now!

You’d better start saving your coins now – who knows how much a movie will cost in a few years?

Pitch Perfect 2 actress Elizabeth Banks will play Rita Repulsa in the upcoming Power Rangers movie. The 41-year-old actress was so excited, she hopped on Twitter to announce the big news.

The film will be an adaptation of the 1990s television show. In other words, get geeked.

The first images of the Ghostbusters cast in character have arrived on the internets.

From Collider:

For a major studio comedy—and a franchise film at that—we’ve seen very little by way of marketing materials for Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters thus far. But it looks like that’s about to change, as the first official look at Chris Hemsworth’s character arrived online tonight by way of a new image, which was followed quickly by new looks at the main cast of characters. In keeping with the gender-bending of the film, Hemsworth fills the role of the Ghostbusters’ secretary, which was played by the irreplaceable Annie Potts in the first two films…

The film finds Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon taking the lead as the titular Ghostbusters, who are needed when New York falls prey to ghosts from a variety of different places and times.

Take a look at the photos here.
