Investors suing Trump family allowed to view unseen footage from Celebrity Apprentice

Published

on

Investors suing the Trump family can watch previously unseen Celebrity Apprentice footage, a judge has ruled.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the studio that owns the footage, must now make the tapes available to lawyers for the investors at a secure location, according to US District Judge Lorna Schofield.

The lawsuit was filed in 2018 by four plaintiffs who claim that Donald Trump and his children, Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, used their celebrity status to promote American Communications Network.

Plaintiffs in the case say that their investment in ACM, a multi-level marketing company, cost them thousands of dollars.

The lawsuit claims that promotion of the company by members of the Trump family on Celebrity Apprentice led them to believe the company was credible and to invest their money in it.

One plaintiff claims that she invested $4,600 in ACN but saw just $38 in revenue.

The reality TV show had a whole episode devoted to ACN’s “revolutionary” videophone, and the former president appeared in promotional videos for the company for almost a decade.

Donald Trump was paid $8.8m by ACN from 2005 to 2015 according to a revue of his tax returns by The New York Times.

The lawsuit says that the Trump family was paid millions by ACN to promote the company and failed to perform due-diligence checks on it.

The company has denied it operated a pyramid scheme.

In June, the Trump family tried to have the case moved from being a class-action lawsuit into arbitration, which would have prevented evidence presented in the case being made public, according to Reuters.

‘West Side Story’ Cast on Stephen Sondheim’s Influence

Published

on

Three days after the death of Stephen Sondheim and 60 years after its first film debut, “West Side Story,” Stephen Spielberg’s expansive remake of the classic movie musical, premiered in New York City. A momentous occasion for the revival of a beatified American film, the premiere, attended by Spielberg, executive producer Rita Moreno, and the movie’s cast — including Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler, Ariana DeBose and Mike Faist — took place in the shadow of Sondheim’s profound loss.

“This can’t be the night we’ve long anticipated, because of the absence of Stephen Sondheim,” Spielberg said to the audience before the screening. “His amazing lyrics for ‘West Side Story’ first put him on the map and launched a career that would completely redraw that map, reinvent the musical and theater, and create a body of work that beyond any doubt is as immortal as anything made by a mortal could be.”

“Like everyone else on the planet who cares about words and music, I’m heartbroken at this sudden loss,” Spielberg continued, with the colossal title of “West Side Story” rising on the screen behind him. “But Steve is here with us tonight, in the form of his great, abiding genius in the glorious musical he helped to bring into the world 64 years ago, and he’s also here in our gratitude for all the art and culture he left behind.”

Sondheim, who passed away last Friday at 91, was closely tied to the film’s remaking, despite his longtime criticism of his lyrical work in the musical. He attended recording sessions and filming days, advised Spielberg and worked closely with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner on adapting the musical into a new screenplay.

“For years, he and I argued about the musical,” Kushner told Variety at the premiere. “He was always a little down on it. He always felt the lyrics weren’t his best, and I violently disagreed.”

With Sondheim’s blessing, Kushner endeavored on a significant expansion of “West Side Story,” wrapped in Spielberg’s desire for an adaptation that honored the original film and eschewed the modernist impulse for a jolting contemporary treatment. While Kushner would argue that his work realized the full foundation of Arthur Laurents’ and Sondheim’s characters, the film remake evolves the musical’s economical structure to fill out the world of the Jets and Sharks. It offers new, meaningful backstories to characters, rearranges scenes and songs to better stage the stakes of the ethnic and economic bloodbath among street kids, and fills out the real racial politics of 1950s New York to create a truer, more honest “West Side Story.”

“About two or three drafts in, I went to his brownstone, and we sat for a couple of days and went through the screenplay line by line,” Kushner described of his collaboration with the lyricist. “He gave me notes, and we worked together. His understanding of the form was absolutely prodigious, and in the end, he loved the film.”

For cast members like Zegler, who makes her professional debut in “West Side Story” as Maria, Sondheim’s presence — as well as the on and off-camera guidance of Moreno, who plays a new character in the film — was reassuring, proof that the bold, even foolhardy desire to remake the movie was still, 60 years later, bridged by its creators.

“I avoided him at one point because I was so scared to speak to him,” Zegler told Variety at the premiere about Sondheim. “But I was very blessed to be able to tell him what he’s meant to me my whole life, and that’s something no one can take away from me.”

“He said that I sound like a nightingale when I sing,” she said, just before heading into the screening to join her cast for the second film premiere of “West Side Story” in the lifetime of a defining American musical. “And I’ll never forget that until the day I die.”

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its rival battle royale offering.

There are now a whopping 19 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. The newest one is Ash, she debuted alongside the new Storm Point map.

Between the Arenas mode and Ranked Leagues to compete in, thousands of matches have already been logged in Season 11, and we will break down and find the Legends with the highest pick rates in Season 11.

Pathfinder has slowly climbed his way up the rankings and gained many fans to become a part of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.7% and counting.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

4. Bloodhound – 9.1%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 11.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 9.1%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

3. Ash – 10.7%

As is always the case with a new season of Apex Legends, the debut of a new Legend usually drags tons of players away from their beloveds, and that has happened with Ash as she is in the top three with a pick rate of 10.7%.

Ash is a very offensive and aggressive Legend whose abilities let players launch deadly projectiles and also mark fresh deathboxes left behind by fallen players. This can help track players that have won a recent battle and could be prone to being jumped.

Ash’s Phase Breach ultimate can also give her a huge edge in battle and lead to potentially game-winning plays if used correctly.

2. Wraith – 11.4%

Another starting legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she is still well-represented at 11.4% in Season 11.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan-favorite in Apex Legends Season 11.

1. Octane – 11.9% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 11

The pick rate king has returned in Season 11 after the Ash hype died down. With an 11.9% pick rate, the speed demon is currently the most popular Legend in Apex Legends Season 11.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 11. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, affecting the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks, and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best audio settings for Apex Legends Season 11.

What this movie lacks in volume it makes up for in weight. The fights scenes aren’t as plenty as Tai Chi Master or Iron Monkey, but they rank with and above them. This movie tell the story of Wong Fei Hung dealing with the racist White Lotus cult who wish to drive the foreigners from China. Things are complicating by the arrival of Commander Lan (Donnie Yen) who is trying to crush a rebellion led by Dr. Sun Yat Sen. The movie drags in the middle but picks up with 3 fights that are among Jet Li’s best. Donnie proves a worthy opponent in his two duels with Jet. A must see.
