Kobe Bryant Says Farewell To The Lakers In A Moving Speech As Reese Witherspoon, Kanye West, & More Celebs React To His Final Game!
Thursday night was a very emotional night for quite a few basketball and sports fans as it marked Kobe Bryant's very last basketball game.
The Black Mamba certainly went out in fashion as he capped off the end of his 20 year career with the Los Angeles Lakers by beating the Utah Jazz 101-96 and scoring 60 points himself in his final outing!
After the 37-year-old scored his final bucket of the night at the free line, the entire El Lay crowd was immediately on their feet. Not to mention, the famous athlete walked over and gave Shaq O'Neal a hug and, once the final buzzer went off, took center stage to give the crowd a fitting speech (below).
Kobe addressed how blessed he has been throughout his career and thanked everyone from his friends, family, and teammates… before dropping the mic with a "Mamba Out!" LOVES it!
Of course, with #24 being one of the greatest players to ever play the game, he had the world watching him. Not surprisingly, several A-lister took to Twitter to praise the now retired NBA star — including Reese Witherspoon, Kanye West, and even President Barack Obama.
Ch-ch-check out all of the best celeb reactions online AND watch Kobe's highlights as well as hear his speech for yourself (below)!
This film is no monkey business!
We're still waiting for the official trailer for Kong: Skull Island to drop — but luckily, the first sneak peek of the epic was released, and it's definitely enough to curb our appetites.
During Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards, Legendary debuted the first look at the King Kong reboot, featuring footage from the Vietnam set and interviews from the cast about shooting the upcoming adventure film!
In the clip, Tom Hiddleston packs some serious heat as he talks about playing Captain James Conrad, a former British SAS officer. We also get a better look at Brie Larson's character Weaver, a photojournalist and environmentalist who is trying to preserve Skull Island.
Though we don't get a look at the big bad gorilla himself, we do get a bigger taste of the beautiful locations and a more finished version of Kong's boneyard!
Skull Island also stars Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Toby Kebbell, and Shea Whigham.
Ch-ch-check out the first look (below) and go see the film in theaters on March 10, 2017!
This is such a sick burn… but so brutal!
Harris had tweeted to Jackson about how Snakes On A Plane was a poor movie choice for the legendary, talented actor — and it set the thespian off BIG time!!!
Ch-ch-check out Harris' tweet that started things off (below):
Superhero Showdown! Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson & Kevin Hart Wage War On All The 'Marvel B*tches' At The 2016 MTV Movie Awards!
Was that a little awkward for anyone else, or was that just us?
It seems as though Batman and Superman put their differences aside, since the funny guys dressed up as the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel to throw some shade at Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, and Samuel L. Jackson!
We aren't surprised that the comedian and the Baywatch star sided with D.C. Comics on this one, considering the award show was shot on the Warner Brothers lot!
Watch them call out the "Marvel b*tches" (above)!
Disney Reportedly Adds Even MORE Star Wars Movies After The Force Awakens' Success — Find Out Which Prequel Stars Could Return HERE!
Of course with the kind of money and success the sci-fi flick has had, sequels are inevitable!
While you may have known we're getting five more SW films before 2020 — Star Wars: Episode VIII (which has already started filming), as well as spinoffs for Han Solo and Boba Fett — apparently there could be A LOT more flicks from the franchise coming our way!
The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams opened up to The Sun about future projects saying:
Julianne Moore Possibly Joining Kingsman: The Secret Service Sequel — As The VILLAIN! Get The Scoop!
This is so exciting!
Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the most fun and action-packed flicks of last year which is why we're VERY excited for a sequel!
While we knew that director Matthew Vaughn and breakout star Taron Egerton would be returning for more — word is Colin Firth will not be reprising his role in any way (news which we do NOT like just as it is) — now we've got news about the new villain.
Samuel L. Jackson was the baddie in the first one and obviously has pretty big shoes to fill, but if reports are true, Julianne Moore could be signing on to be the evil-doer in the spy movie's sequel!
While we don't know much else about the flick — other than rumors that the film could be taking place in the States instead of London — we're definitely on board with the idea of Moore joining in the action!
And is it just us or are they making all the villains American as a joke on the idea that American villains are always Brits..?
Unfortunately, there is a possibility that the Oscar-winner won't be able to ink the deal as she's juggling several other projects at the moment, including Todd Haynes' adaptation of the children's book Wonderstruck.
Would you be interested in Julianne joining the cast??
