Domestic violence is never a laughing matter. However, it is a harrowing problem in our society that affects millions of people across the world. Each case is different, and some are so violent and saddistic that it defies human logic. One filmmaker, Trayvon Williams, is shedding light on one such violent case that went viral forever changing the life of a young Black woman, Porsha Daniels.

The story takes place on February 4, 2015; when Porsha’s ex-boyfriend, Nathaniel Davis, brutally attacked and stabbed her and her current boyfriend, Searrier Smith, after breaking into her Houston, Texas apartment. Porsha sustained severe injuries from 22 stab wounds, which according to reports left her nearly decapitated. She underwent a number of surgeries, but was ultimately left paralyzed, missing a kidney, and most of her intestines gone. Searrier, however, did not survive.

Trayvon decided to make this tragedy the source of his film due to his own experiences with domestic violence. “…I chose this case/ story about Porsha Daniels because I knew her personally. She went to high school with me. She reached out to ask me if I could tell her story for her. After seeing the pictures of her, and reading her story, I realized that like most women they don’t get out soon enough after seeing the signs. After being gone from Houston for almost 10 years; I realizes there’s a lot I didn’t know about the women in my family. Most of them have been abused by a man and never said anything to anyone. It’s almost like it’s a regular thing . Really the problem is stemming from an old mentality . Most older women in my family were abused, and most of them stayed. They passed that down generations and this was my way to bring it to light and hopefully I can spark conversation to women across the world through my art. Her story went viral in 2015. I was in LA when I first saw it. I couldn’t believe it because  it was so close to home. I saw my biological mom be abused as well…

February’s Pain is currently in development. It is set to be released as a full feature film in February 2020, with his production company “The Pioneers Collective LLC.” Stay tuned to HeyMikeyATL for more updates!

On Tuesday, Paramount Pictures debuted the famous cartoon’s design changes with a new official trailer for the Sega video game-inspired film, after initial reactions to the original design released in April caused an internet frenzy. Fans blasted the old trailer for portraying Sonic as “human-like” and were particularly upset about Sonic’s realistic looking teeth and shapely legs, Vulture reported.

Now, the electric blue hedgehog has been reimagined to look more like the traditional cartoon character — boasting larger, more animated eyes, white gloves instead of white hands, thin legs and all-around less human-like features.

Director Jeff Fowler confirmed in April that the movie would be delayed by three months after receiving backlash about Sonic’s appearance.

Check out a few fan reactions:

We have to say we are here for this makeover and the studio listening to the fans. Sonic The Hedgehog is one of the greatest and most beloved characters in the world we always want him done right! We will keep you posted as more news about the movie comes forward.

Although his Iron Man tenure propelled him to the top of Hollywood’s A-list, Robert Downey Jr. has always been humble about his recent success. Perhaps this is reason he declined the chance to pursue a Best Actor Oscar for his role in Avengers: Endgame. Regardless, it looks like Disney and Marvel have chosen to go against Downey’s wishes. Collider brings word that the studios are submitting his name for consideration at next year’s Oscars ceremony after all.

Rather than Best Actor in a Leading Role, Disney is pushing to have Downey nominated for Best Supporting Actor. What’s surprising is that Downey isn’t the only actor being submitted for consideration in this category. The studio is also launching campaigns for Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, Paul Rudd, and Don Cheadle.

Honestly, we could have seen him nominated for the Best Actor category as well. There was a lot emotion put into his final bout as the Golden Avenger, especially when he sacrificed himself in that final scene to defeat Thanos, uttering “I am Iron Man.” It is only a matter of time before some superhero film achieves Oscar gold in one of the big categories. Black Panther  was nominated for  a number of awards at the last Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse took him an Oscar for best animated film. The clock’s ticking…

Even after the passing of Wes Craven, Ghostface continues to live on.

Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report that Gary Barber’s Spyglass Media Group is currently developing the next Scream, based on the franchise created by Craven and writer Kevin Williamson.

While Craven had directed all four Scream films before his passing, various filmmakers would get behind the camera for a television series that ran for two seasons on MTV and a third on VH1.

All four films remained canon while the series would create its own mythology. It’s unclear if the next film will continue to be canonized within Craven’s universe or be a remake, but we are hearing that, as of this writing, Williamson is not writing the screenplay.

Neve Campbell as “Sidney Prescott”

There is no word if the star of the films, Neve Campbell, will reprise her role as “Sidney Prescott.” We are definitely hoping Neve, and of course, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, as “Gail” and “Dooley,” respectively. We will keep you posted as more news on the film develops!
