Netflix Accused Of Glamourizing Sex Trafficking Over Italian Drama Baby


Netflix has been accused of glamourizing sex trafficking after commissioning an Italian drama based on the Baby Squillo teen prostitution scandal. The U.S.-based National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) called for eight-part drama Baby to be axed ahead of its launch.

13 Summer Movie Trailers We Love, From ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ to ‘The Beguiled’ (Videos)


“Spider-Man: Homecoming”
Marvel and Sony saved their best trailer for last as this one prominently features Tom Holland’s MCU Spider-Man, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, and Michael Keaton’s Vulture in all their glory.

“Wonder Woman”
It took 75 years for DC’s Amazonian Warrior to headline her own bio pic. Starring Gal Gadot as Diana/Wonder Woman, the standalone film shows us her origin featuring Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”
“I’m your dad Peter,” says Kurt Russell’s Ego to Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord in the last trailer solving one of the biggest fanboy mysteries of recent years. Also, scene stealer Baby Groot.

“Baby Driver”
The trailer for Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” runs on all cylinders giving us a great look at Ansel Elgort’s getaway driver Baby set to an even cooler soundtrack.

“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”
From the legendary director of classics like “The Professional,” “Lucy,” and “The Fifth Element,” Luc Besson seems to have another sci-fi winner with this long time passion project of his.

Chris Nolan wants to “give the audience the most visceral experiential two hours that they can hope for,” Nolan said of his World War II epic, which is based on the true story of the thousands of Allied soldiers who were trapped and surrounded by the German army on the beach of Dunkirk.

The red band trailer for the Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn comedy is full of inappropriate jokes, romance and, well — an unexpected kidnapping. Hawn is back to the screen in this movie mixed with Schumer’s crude jokes, making it look like the ultimate summer movie.

“The Mummy”
Tom Cruise stumbles upon a mummy of a beautiful woman who was chosen to be Egypt’s next queen, but she had an undesirable thirst for power. And that ancient power is now back.

“Atomic Blonde”
The restricted trailer for “Atomic Blonde” is literally just two full minutes of Charlize Theron kicking a–. This is one of the most anticipated action movies of the summer, especially after this trailer debuted.

The trailer for Paramount’s “Baywatch” sports the hottest lifeguards in the world: Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Kelly Rohrbach and Alexandra Daddario. The trailer is hilarious, sexy, and at the end, cringeworthy.

“Despicable Me 3”
The minions are back! And Gru (and his twin brother Dru) are ready for that one last heist.

“The Beguiled”
The trailer for Sofia Coppola’s newest film stars Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning as three women in an all girls school who let in a wounded soldier. Soon, lust and jealousy take over.

“A Ghost Story”
In the trailer, Casey Affleck’s white-sheeted ghost is unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the woman he loves slowly slip away. In his spectral state, he embarks on a journey through memory and history, exploring the meaning of human existence. It’s beautiful.

Bill Murray or Tom Hanks? See the Photo That’s Confused the Internet


You might assume that Bill Murray and Tom Hanks don’t have that much in common, especially in the looks department.

While similar in age (66 and 60 respectively) and fame, one is a comic actor best known for “Ghostbusters” and “Groundhog Day,” while the other is a dramatic genius famous for his Oscar-worthy collaborations with Steven Spielberg.

However, a photo of a mom, a crying baby and one of the Hollywood actors has spiraled the internet into a state of confusion not seen since #TheDress and the great “blue and black or white and gold?” debate.

The image belongs to Laura DiMichele-Ross, who originally posted it to her Facebook group called “Reasons My Son is Crying” three years ago after meeting Bill Murray on a golf course at St. Andrew’s in Scotland.

It was taken by Adam Ross, the Guardian reported, and shows Laura holding their crying nine-month-old son, Alexander, with Murray mimicking his tortured expression.

However, it soon sparked floods of comments asking if the infant was bawling over the “Forrest Gump” star, despite the caption clearly saying it was Murray, and has since gone viral.

“We are finding this very funny. I personally don’t see the resemblance to Tom Hanks but we’ve noticed that people have been mentioning it for years,” Laura Ross told the Guardian.

Ross actually bumped into Murray since then — while he was playing golf with Huey Lewis — and she got him to sign the photo. “He got a laugh from it,” Ross said.
