50 Shades Of Grey Author E.L. James Handpicked The Perfect Screenwriter For The Sequel — Her Husband!

| Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzBookz50 Shades Of Grey

no title

It seems the next Fifty Shades of Grey film will keep even truer to the book than the first!

We told you Fifty Shades Darker lost its director Sam Taylor-Johnson and writer Kelly Marcel. Now the confirmed sequel finally has a new screenwriter.

Of course, Niall Leonard isn't new to author E.L. James — he's her husband of 20 years!

Niall — who has screenwriting credits on the British television shows Wire In The Blood and Air Force One Is Down — reportedly did some uncredited work on the first film as well.

This seems like a clever move by E.L., who reportedly clashed with the previous writers over how closely the films should adhere to the books.

Rumor is E.L. wanted to pen the scripts herself, but the studio wouldn't let her.

We're guessing she'll get the movies she wants now. Or she and her hubby will have to have another creative meeting in the Red Room of Pain! LOLz!

Jay Z And Beyoncé's Joint Album Might Still Be Released — But Only On Tidal! Can This Save The Struggling Venture??

Parents will do anything to protect their baby.

In February, we reported that Jay Z and Beyoncé might be recording an album together — a rumor that seemed way too good to be true.

This week, it's been reported the power couple's album is still underway. And it will be exclusively available on — you guessed it — Tidal!

Fuse host DJ Skee reported on Wednesday that Jay and Bey's record is nearly done and will "be released exclusively" on Jay's streaming service, which promises to be a better royalty deal for artists.

This highly anticipated album might just be what Tidal needs to give it an extra wind, as the company has sunk down out of the US iPhone top 700 download chart since its debut in March!

This joint project with his wife will mark Jay's fifth collaboration album, the most recent being 2011's Watch The Throne with bestie Kanye West — who, by the way, has recently deleted all of his social media support of Tidal. Inneresting…

No official announcement has been made yet from Blue Ivy's parents on the collaboration album, but if Tidal is at stake, they'll do anything they can to save their baby business!

Tidal Isn't Making A Big Splash On The Download List But Its Competitors Are! Can Jay Z's Streaming Service Stay Afloat Or Will It Capsize???

Jay Z made big waves announcing the launch of his streaming service Tidal, which aimed to make streaming music a better deal for artists and a pricier deal for consumers.

Tidal's social media push included a star studded spokes-panel of Mr. Carter's friends. Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and more of the industry's wealthiest artists urged users to switch to Tidal because of it's "high fidelity" sound.

But the public didn't seem to buy into the spectacle. After a couple of weeks into its release, the streaming service made less of a splash and more of a doggy paddle, barely competing with their streaming nemeses Spotify and Pandora.

Tidal cracked the US iPhone top 20 download chart for two weeks before it sunk all the way down out of the top 700! And they've only made their enemies stronger — Pandora and Spotify took the No. 3 and No. 4 positions of the US iPhone revenue chart!

It looks like the company's anti-Spotify movement only increased the public awareness of the streaming service!

Tidal is now scrambling to recover. They replaced their CEO in a "streamlining" move, but we're thinking it might be too late for Jay's baby business to stay afloat.

Do U think it's too late for Tidal?

There's Someone Missing From Disney's Avengers: Age Of Ultron Merchandise — Scarlett Johansson! Where Are All Of The Black Widow Toys??

There was a time when Disney dropping the ball meant that it was time for the next word in a sing-a-long!

With strong heroines like in Merida from Brave and Elsa & Anna of 2013's smash Frozen, Disney is stepping out of the old paradigms of princesses as damsels in distress. But it seems when it comes to Marvel, they have trouble knowing what girls want these days.

With Avengers: Age Of Ultron coming soon, shelves around the world are buckling under the weight of film tie-in merchandise. And yet across the board, it's tough to find merchandise relating to Black Widow!

Sadly, Disney itself seems to be the worst offender. They released

You HAVE To See Marvel's New Ant-Man Billboards! But Look Close, Because They're SUPER TINY!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAustraliasticBusiness BlitzComic Books

Marvel is taking a big risk choosing Ant-Man as their next blockbuster, but with a little bit of ingenuity like this, they just might pull it off!

Instead of placing massive billboards all over Hollywood — which cost movie studios millions — folks in Australia (maybe a test for a wider launch?) have noticed several of these tiny billboards for the shrinking superhero film appearing in public places like parks and bus stops.

[ Video: The Next Ant-Man Trailer Is A Gig-ANT-ic Improvement! ]

Aren't they just adorable??

We'd love to take one home, but from what we hear, they're stuck pretty strongly to the ground, probably with some Spider-Man webbing.

We hope Marvel sticks to these and never rolls out the full-size! After all, we're already talking about them more than any billboard in the past few years!

Though they are in danger of being stepped on…

The move will made in conjunction with the people who own Star Wars - Disney - and the announcement was made this past Thursday when the AH-mazing new trailer dropped!

Here's what one VP-Marketing for Lucasfilm said:

"We're excited to be involved in this collaboration with ANA, one of the world's leading 5-star airlines. We're proud of the innovative R2-D2 design, and we look forward to witnessing the first-ever flight of a passenger aircraft featuring a Star Wars character. We're confident that Star Wars fans around the world will absolutely love this design."

Seriously, how cool would it be to ride in an airplane that has the likeness of R2-D2!

Way better than if it was C-3PO! That guy never shuts up!

Check out a video of how the airplane will be down (below) !!!
