Its been a tough couple of months for Bex Fowler (Jasmine Armfield) in EastEnders. Shes struggling to cope as a result of the immense pressure shes been under and tonights episode will see the young woman attempt to take her own life.

Unable to listen Sonia (Natalie Cassidy) going on about Uni, viewers saw Bex take advantange of a distraction earlier this week when she helped plan Louises (Tilly Keeper) baby shower. However, the event did little to cheer her up — and Lisa (Lucy Benjamin) began to worry about her. With Sonia pushing her to prepare for Uni, Bex ultimately sold her guitar, and reminisced about both Shaki (Shaheen Jafargholi) and her time in Walford.

Tonight, Sonia prepares for Bexs final day in Walford, and she gets everything in order for the surprise party shes arranged. When Bex gets wind of the party, she reluctantly agrees to go and, during the celebrations, she feigns enjoyment.

Lisa picks up on the fact that Bex isnt okay and thus attempts to persuade her to open up to her mum. However, Bex brushes Lisa off and makes a speech, before sneaking off.

With the stress of everything that shes had to deal with over the past few months — not to mention the thought of leaving Walford weighing on her mind — Bex finds herself unable to cope, and —unbeknown to those enjoying themselves at the party — shes planning to take her own life.

The following day, Lisas concerns about Bex continue to weigh on her mind and, as a result, she urges Louise to call her. Meanwhile, a shocked Sonia discovers Bex unresponsive in bed.

EastEnders is working with Samaritans on the storyline, and Executive Producer Jon Sen told Metro.co.uk: We wanted to take Bex on a journey which accurately reflected the crises facing many young people today – many of whom, like Bex, struggle under the moRead More – Source

Hunter Owen easily manipulates Ian Beale tonight in EastEnders, after realising that that his new boss is head over heels for Mel.

Ian is hardly subtle in his efforts to win Mel back but she seems oblivious. Shes also quite happily dating Jack Branning.

But Ian spotted an opportunity when he overheard Mel urge her son Hunter to find a job. Ian foolishly offered Hunter a job at his restaurant in a bid to impress Mel. The restaurant is still closed, so its not even clear what Hunters job involves.

Fans will also enjoy a double dose of Owen manipulation, when Ian finally tires of Hunter and tells Mel that the arrangement is over. Can Mel save her sons summer job with a little bit of charm?

And will Ian ever see that his quest to win back Mels heart is hopeless?

Black Panther Has Already Broken Box Office Records

0

Just from ticket presale numbers, we knew that Black Panther was going to be big. Now that it’s finally in theaters, the numbers from its opening weekend indicate that it’s off to an auspicious start, and has already broken at least three records in as many days.

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, Marvel’s very first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie with an almost entirely black cast, has already taken home $192 million since Thursday night and is projected to make around $218 million-plus over the President’s Day holiday. That’s the second-biggest opening in the M.C.U. behind The Avengers, which made $207.4 million in its first three days, not accounting for inflation. Black Panther might even pass The Avengers’ four-day earnings of $226.3 million by Monday.

As ignorant as it looks now, Black Panther was once considered a gamble for Marvel Studios, which hadn’t yet made a movie in the M.C.U. featuring a black lead or even a single scene without white characters. But the $200 million gamble paid off, and after not even a week Black Panther is already the biggest opening for a black director, the best-scoring superhero movie on Rotten Tomatoes (so far) at 97 percent, and the biggest February opening of all time—a record previously held by fellow superhero movie Deadpool, which made $152.2 million over the 2016 President’s Day weekend. It also earned an A+ audience CinemaScore (the only other Marvel movie to do that was The Avengers).

Black Panther is also unprecedented in terms of its audience demographics. Audiences for superhero movies have, in the past, been mostly white. But Black Panther’s opening weekend demographics, according to comScore, show that 37 percent of ticket buyers were black, 35 percent are white, and 18 percent are Hispanic. Normally, black audience members make up about 15 percent for a tentpole superhero movie. Marvel hasn’t announced any plans for a Black Panther sequel yet, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feigehas mentioned that there is plenty of material out there, and “many, many stories to tell.” Let’s be honest: if anyone should survive the Infinity War, it’s the King of Wakanda.

Bigg Boss 11: Akash Dadlani should leave the house, says poll

0

By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: January 10, 2018 12:49 pm Bigg Boss 11: Akash Dadlani might be evicted in Wednesday’s episode.

After trying his best to survive in the Bigg Boss 11 house, it seems the journey of the commoner and rapper Akash Dadlani will come to an end tonight. Bigg Boss brought a twist on Monday’s episode when he nominated all the five housemates – Shilpa Shinde, Vikas Gupta, Hina Khan, Puneesh Sharma and Akash for mid-week evictions. The nominations came as a blow to Akash who until last week was tripping over the fact of him being the first finalist of the season.

And when we asked the readers who would they not like to see in the finale, they came up with the name of Akash.

Take Our Poll

In a poll conducted by indianexpress.com, Akash got 44 percent votes in comparison to Puneesh’s 34%, Hina’s 10.14%, Shilpa’s 6.6% and Vikas’ 4.88% votes. The audience clearly is annoyed with Akash’s annoying habits and his rude behaviour. Last week too when he won the nominations task and entered in the top five, his madness reached another level as he started throwing tantrums inside the house. He was even pulled up by the host of the show Salman Khan for his attitude during the Weekend Ka Vaar episode and evicted contestant Luv Tyagi also said that for him, Akash didn’t deserve to be in the top place.

Akash who was giving a dose of entertainment to the viewers of Bigg Boss 11 invited troubles for himself by being mean and picking up unnecessary fights with his fellow contestants. His friends Arshi, Shilpa and Puneesh too were not spared and he ditched them all at some point or the other to ensure his stay inside the house. Not just this, he sparked a controversy by kissing Shilpa forcefully. The fun-loving and entertaining Akash has been lost somewhere in the race to lift the trophy of Bigg Boss 11.

If Akash walks out of the house tonight, it will be Hina, Shilpa, Vikas and Puneesh who will have the final fight for the title of the winner. The finale of the show is scheduled to happen on January 14 and Akshay Kumar along with Salman Khan will be announcing the name of the winner.

Varun Dhawan wants to be an actor more than a star, says October producer Ronnie Lahiri

0

Written by Arushi Jain | New Delhi | Updated: April 10, 2018 2:41:24 pm Varun Dhawan completely surrendered himself for Shoojit Sircars film October.Related News

If you have a filmmaker like Shoojit Sircar and writer Juhi Chaturvedi onboard, you can expect something unconventional to unfold in the cinemas. This is what cinephiles are expecting to happen when October, starring Varun Dhawan and debutante Banita Sandhu, releases on April 13.

But arent the makers of the film concerned about audiences reaction to the unusual story of October? The producer of the film Ronnie Lahiri said, “The audience has always been receptive to changes and new stuff. It is within the industry that we think that the audience will not accept the new concepts. In 2012, nobody would have thought that a film can be made on a subject as risky as a sperm donor but when Vicky Donor was released it was received well, same happened with Piku. All our films have always been off the centre and audience has always lapped it up. It is us who restrain ourselves and make a decision on audiences behalf that what they might not like what we like. So, I think this is a misconception that the audience will not like new stuff.”

varun dhawan images Varrun Dhawan with October director Shoojit Sircar and producer Ronnie Lahiri during the script reading session.

October is making headlines for all the right reasons. From it being a story of love and not a love story to its star cast Varun and Banita featuring in their never seen before avatars, everything about the film is intriguing. The credit for much of it goes to ace-filmmaker Shoojit Sircar who has earlier delivered films like Vicky Donor, Piku, Pink, Yahaan and Madras Cafe among others. Talking about Shoojit, Ronnie quipped, “I have been working with Shoojit for last twenty years. I know what kind of stories he wants to tell. He is one of his kind and a true storyteller. He doesnt care about the budget or the box office collections, his first concern is, will people love my story, will they watch it, will they connect to it.”

The Etihad Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Will Take Place This Year But It’s Going To Look A Bit Different

Get ready to start your engines folks because the Etihad Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will, in fact, be taking place this year.

The much-loved event that sees hundreds of thousands folk to the UAE capital for their dose of fast cars, fashion, and, of course, spot the odd celebrity or two, will take place on Dec. 13 of this year.

The catch? It will be spectator free. In light of the current global pandemic, the event will be limited to racers, organizers, and sponsors. However, the entire race will be aired in real-time.

"We are delighted that we will be upholding our traditional end-of-season race with our valued and special partners at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. While this season has been challenging for everyone, we can think of no better place to bring the 2020 season to an end and look forward to completing our 17-race calendar," explained Chase Carey, Chief Executive of the Formula One Group.

Westworld: What Is Sector 16, Zone 4 and Where Is the Valley Beyond?

0

This post contains frank discussion of a few major plot points from Westworld Season 2, Episode 7 “Les Écorchés” including the long-awaited location of the mysterious Valley Beyond. This is also where you can find a link to the latest episode of Vanity Fairs companion podcast, “Still Watching: Westworld.” This week Richard Lawson and Joanna Robinson break down the this weeks twists and turns and speak with actor Jeffrey Wright about the latest Bernard/Arnold revelations.

You can also find a complete rundown of the allusions and hints you might have missed in the episode here. But in the meantime, this post is here to dive deep into the latest revelations about Westworlds mysterious Valley Beyond. If youve yet to watch the episode and would prefer not to be spoiled on any of this, well let Dr. Ford give you your cue to leave.

This weeks episode ends in the “present day” timeline with Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) revealing to Charlotte (Tessa Thompson), Strand (Gustaf Skarsgård), Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth), and Costa (Fares Fares) the location of Peter Abernathys “control unit” a.k.a. his mind egg or “pearl.” Bernard is extremely precise: Sector 16, Zone 4.

Strand responds that they now have to go “back” to the Valley Beyond implying that the location everyones been trying to get to all season is somewhere we, the audience, have already been. Of course we have, Westworld loves hiding its mysteries in plain sight. Back in Episode 1 of this season, Costa also pulled up Sector 16, Zone 4 on his tablet and identified it as a place where a number of the hosts were clustered. If you squint, you can see the coordinates near his thumb.

And when Strand, Costa, Stubbs, and Bernard rolled up to Sector 16, Zone 4 later on in that episode, someone even said the valley was just beyond the cliffs.

That means someone—Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), Bernard, or someone else—had already gotten to the valley, flooded it, and filled it with all those dead Host bodies we saw in the premiere. (Including James Mardsens Teddy.)

So what Dolores, et. al. want or wanted was likely at the bottom of that ocean. Thankfully, we wont have to keep guessing as to what that might be. Because Strands team is hard at work pulling the Host bodies out. . .

. . .and draining the Valley.

Of course weve seen that Valley before when a younger William took Dolores to see it back in Episode 2 “Reunion.”

Though some Westworld fans had already guessed the location, now we know for certain where the Valley Beyond is. But what is it. The implication in this episode is that under all that water is a massive server storing, as Dolores evocatively puts it, the “souls” of all the humans that Delos has been observing and “copying” over the years. Last week in an explainer video on a similar server, the now-destroyed Cradle/CR4-DL, Jonathan Nolan pointed out that the whole contraption was kept cool by water saying it was a much more “efficient” and “creepier” way to keep everything cool than your standard air coolant system. Could there have enough water in whatever file storage Delos had in the Valley to result in a flood of that magnitude? It seems unlikely. But, then again, Delos has been collecting data on a lot of Guests over the years.

Written by Alifiya Khan | Updated: July 1, 2018 12:00:05 am Amruta Khanvilkar in a still from Damaged Top News

A demure and subservient housewife Munira in Meghna Gulzars Raazi to a sensuous and psychotic serial killer Lovina in Hungamas web series, Damaged, and the bubbly and prankster wife of Manoj Bajpayees character in John Abrahams upcoming Satyamev Jayate, Amruta Khanvilkar has constantly been reinventing herself and cannot be boxed into any one mould. For a long time that wasnt the case. “I cannot express how grateful I am. For a long time, I was typecast by the Marathi industry and given roles where I had to dance and look beautiful. Im not complaining it happened but I wanted more,” says 33-year-old Khanvilkar, who decided that she didnt want to be restricted to one kind of role anymore.

When the National Award-winning film Katyar Kaljat Ghusali happened, Khanvilkar thought she had proven herself. “It was the chingari, the spark. But it was very shocking for me that despite that, I was offered no meaningful work by the Marathi industry,” she says.

Khanvilkar wanted to be more than “just a glam doll”. “Thats what one of the newspapers wrote about me. And till today, a lot of them address me that way. It disturbs me as I had been typecast for a long time. Honestly, I am a very ordinary looking Marathi girl and I can do more than just glam roles. Isnt it ironical that I was getting these strong characters to play in Hindi films but in the Marathi industry, it was the same old stuff,” says Khanvilkar.

The actor began her career in 2004 after she won a talent show. She worked first in the Hindi film industry on a few projects before moving on to Marathi films in 2006, where she had a long and successful run. She is now returning to Hindi cinema with three back to back projects. “I dont understand when people ask me, Oh you were in Bollywood then you went to Marathi films and now youre back. I am in Mumbai, both the industries are here only. So whats this went there, came here? I didnt do too many Hindi films in between and now I dont have any Marathi film projects coming up,” she says.

So what happened after Katyar Kaljat Ghusali, a critically acclaimed film? “I just didnt get work. I waited. And then I started making calls to casting directors, asking for work and meetings. When there was work, I got complacent. I am not overly ambitious as a person so as long as I had work, I was happy. But I am not egotistical either. When I didnt have work, I went for auditions. Several of them. All of these roles I landed are through auditions. And I am not ashamed to say that even after so many years, I go auditioning for roles because honestly there is nothing wrong with it. They are not questioning your talent or your seniority, they just want to know if you fit that one role or not,” says Khanvilkar.

What shines through in this candid admission is how Khanvilkar isnt averse to reveal the struggles she has gone through or is not embarrassed in admitting things that many wouldnt talk about. She tells us that she has auditioned for at least a 100 ad films but was never offered one. “People kept telling me youre such an ad face but when I went for auditions, I never landed the role. I auditioned for about a 100 ad films and not one was offered. It was easier to land a film than an ad for me,” she says.
