Indian police have seized 48 terabytes of ‘mostly adult’ images and videos during a raid on the home of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty as part of a probe into her husband’s alleged connections to porn production ring.

Shetty’s husband businessman Raj Kundra was arrested last week by police in Mumbai after allegedly luring a woman into making an X-rated film with the promise of an acting job.

Kundra’s custody has been extended until July 27. Police said they “have sufficient evidence” that the 45-year-old is “the key conspirator” in a case involving

F9: How the Fast & Furious films define the 21st Century

This fifth film took things in a strikingly different direction. As Toretto and O’Connor assembled a crew of their old friends from Fast 1 through 4, and planned an impossible heist, it shifted the series’ focus away from street-racing vendettas and onto more high-stakes action, that subsequently came to incorporate international espionage (a move not always for the better). It also introduced another big personality to the mix in the form of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, playing government agent Luke Hobbs. His fights with fellow gigantic bald-headed man Vin Diesel were as entertaining as they were visually absurd, with them

Anthony Bourdain: trailer released for Oscar-tipped documentary Roadrunner | Documentary films

Roadrunner, a new documentary examining the life, death and legacy of Anthony Bourdain, has released a first trailer.

The film, which is directed by Oscar-winner Morgan Neville, splices unseen and archive footage of the much-loved chef, author and TV star with new talking-head interviews from those close to him. Bourdain’s own voiceover is used, so he appears to narrate his own story.

Bourdain killed himself aged 61 in June 2018 while in France shooting a TV show, and the film suggests he may have found it difficult to speak to people about his mental health.

Neville’s previous work includes 2018’s

The Woman in the Window and film’s most cursed productions

Not that any film should be condemned on the basis of its creators’ trials and tribulations. Most of the problems listed above had nothing to do with the production itself; besides, reshoots and personnel changes are part of the Hollywood process. Eric Stoltz was swapped for Michael J Fox when shooting was underway on Back To The Future, and Harvey Keitel was swapped for Martin Sheen on Apocalypse Now, and neither of those films turned out too badly. In 1997, Titanic was a byword for illnesses, injuries, spiralling costs and missed deadlines, but once it became a record-breaking hit, winning

Pixar Staff Slams Disney for Moving Films to Streaming Only

“Luca” is following “Soul” by skipping theaters and streaming exclusively on Disney+ this summer.

Several Pixar staffers spoke anonymously to Insider to criticize Disney’s decision to move some of the animation studio’s titles exclusively to the streaming platform Disney+. The first Pixar film to sidestep movie theaters was Pete Docter’s “Soul,” but many Pixar workers believed that was a one-time decision due to the pandemic shuttering theaters in 2020. However, Disney announced in March that Pixar’s upcoming “Luca” would also skip theaters and head straight to Disney+, despite theaters re-opening and the exhibition market slowly coming back to life. “Luca”
