Pop Culture Round Up – 07/02/10
Friday, we introduced a new weekly segement to the Nightly News Roundup. Off the air, I have lots of funny and interesting conversations with my chief of staff Jaxon, about politics, but mainly POP CULTURE. He is always on top of these stories, so I suggested he bring that energy to the show.
Here is the run down from Friday’s segment:
The 3rd movie in the TWILIGHT saga, ECLIPSE opens this weekend. Here is the trailer.
Celebutante, KIM KARDASHIAN, got her own wax sculpture, courtesy of the legendary Madame Tussauds Studio.
(It looks incredible-The REAL Kim is on the left by the way)
SONY / COLUMBIA / MARVEL STUDIOS announced a reboot of the SPIDER-MAN movie series. The successful Tobey Macguire franchise has been scrapped for a reboot staring a relative new comer ANDREW GARFIELD.
In other super-hero news, WONDER WOMAN debuted a new and updated outfit this week. Jaxon speculates that they are testing this outfit for a possible bid to make a live action movie.
Jaxon wrapped up the segment with a recount of this year’s BET AWARDS, where CHRIS BROWN had a breakdown during his Michael Jackson performance, and PRINCE received a Lifetime Achievement Award.
In addition to his segment on the NNR, he is also a contributor to the NEW KRLD website. You will find his pop culture stories here:
