Chadwick Boseman Wins Posthumous Best Actor Golden Globe | Teen Vogue

Washington, Mar 1: Late American actor Chadwick Boseman bagged the Golden Globe award in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama category.

Boseman won the accolade for his portrayal of Levee Green in 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'. The George C Wolfe directorial marked Boseman's final film role. Viola Davis was one of the co-stars of Boseman in this film.

Hrithik Roshan Records Statement at Crime Branch Office Against Kangana  Ranaut

Mumbai, Feb 27: Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan on Saturday recorded his statement with Crime Branch in an ongoing case filed against actress Kangana Ranaut.

Videos shared by the paparazzi on social media show the actor alighting from his car and entering the Crime Branch office to record his statement. The actor wore a simple T-shirt with denims with a cap, and covered his face with a mask. He also avoided speaking to the media present at the spot.

As per reports, the statement being recorded is with regards to an e-mail exchange case between Hrithik and Kangana that took place few years ago.

Hrithik and Kangana appeared together in the 2010 film "Kites" and the 2013 film "Krrish 3", following which they reportedly dated for a while before parting ways. A couple of years later, Kangana resorted to attacking Hrithik in the public, referring to him as her "silly ex". The two actors have filed cases against each other.

On Friday, Kangana once again referred to Hrithik Roshan as her "silly ex" on Twitter while reacting to a news report on the microblogging site. The actress news piece tweet said: "#HrithikRoshan to Appear Before Mumbai's #CrimeBranch on February 27 to Record Statement in Case Against #KanganaRanaut."

Reacting to this, Kangana tweeted: "Duniya kahan se kahan pahunch gayi magar mera silly ex abhi bhi waheen hai usi modh pe jahan yeh waqt dobara laut ke nahi jane wala (No matter where the world has moved on but my silly ex is still standing there where time will never return).

Washington, Feb 28: A classic sci-fi franchise is making its way to Netflix in the form of a 'Terminator' anime series.

As per Variety, the upcoming series will unfold a new chapter and will not be a reboot of the parent franchise. As the project is still in the early stages, plot details are being kept under tight wraps.

Netflix has partnered with Skydance for the forthcoming series, with Skydance having produced the last two 'Terminator' films.

The series is produced in partnership with Production I.G, with who Netflix has had a production line deal since 2018. Production I.G's past anime credits include 'Ghost in the Shell', 'B: The Beginning', and 'Eden of the East'.

The series is being led by showrunner Mattson Tomlin, who has co-written 'The Batman' starring actor Robert Pattinson. Tomlin will also serve as executive producer on the series. 
In a statement, Tomlin thanked Netflix and Skydance for this chance to break conventions and subvert expectations.

Tomlin said, "Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart. I'm honored that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach 'Terminator' in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations, and has real guts."

The 'Terminator' franchise has been wildly successful. To date, the franchise has six films, two web series, one TV series, comic, novel, and game adaptations.

The franchise started with James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd in 1984 with the first film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the villainous robot from 2029 who came to the past to kill a woman named Sarah Connor and thus stop human resistance to a machine uprising.

The most recent entries were 'Terminator: Dark Fate' and 'Terminator: Genisys'. Although the Netflix series will be the first animated series in the franchise's history, it has previously been adapted for the small screen.

The live-action drama titled 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' aired on Fox for two seasons with Lena Headey starring as Sarah Connor and Thomas Dekker starring as John Connor. Summer Glau starred as the Terminator sent back in time to protect John.
