Written by Adam Deacon, Michael Vu, and Jazzie Zonzolo, Sumotherhood is also directed by and stars Adam Deacon, with the movie acting as an action-packed spoof of his previous endeavors Kidulthood and Adulthood. Released in 2006 and 2008 respectively, the first outing deals with the lives of several teenagers as they tackle drugs, sex, and violence, while the sequel follows a character from the first movie, Sam (Noel Clarke), as he tries to change his life following a six-year prison sentence.

The two Hood films take a gritty look at life in London, and it’s certainly a look that is prime for humorous reinterpretation, with Sumotherhood adding a funny twist to proceedings.

Sumotherhood has amassed an all-star (and occasionally) unexpected cast alongside Deacon, with the movie set to star Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous, Shrek 2), Danny Sapani (The Diplomat, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy), Jazzie Zonzolo (Anuvahood), Jaime Winstone (Kidulthood), Kevin Bishop (Miracle Workers), and Vas Blackwood (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels).

But that’s not all! Sumotherhood also features appearances from several superstars of the music world, including Ed Sheeran, Lethal Bizzle, and Megaman, and even British politician Jeremy Corbyn, as well as Richie Campbell, London Hughes, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Arnold Jorge, Eddie Kadi, Ella Vaday, Charlie Sloth, Denise van Outen, Tamzin Outhwaite, and Leomie Anderson.

Sumotherhood comes to UK cinemas from 13 October. Wider release dates have yet to be revealed.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
