T.I Not Returning to Ant-Man 3

Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., popularly known as T.I, will not be reprising his role in Ant-Man 3. According to reports, the rapper-cum-actor was allegedly dropped by the Marvel franchise film following claims of “sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, terroristic threats and false imprisonment” by at least 11 women involving him and his wife, Tiny, that recently surfaced.

The couple, through their lawyers, has denied the “unsubstantiated and baseless” allegations “in the strongest possible terms,” adding that no charges will be forthcoming “if these claims are thoroughly and fairly investigated”.

T.I played the character Dave, Scott Lang/Ant-Man’s friend, in the original Ant-Man film (2015), and Ant-Man and the Wasp, a sequel in 2018. The upcoming third film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is currently in development but has been scheduled for a 2022 theatrical release.

MTV has also paused their hit series Friends & Family Hustle “given the serious nature of the allegations”.

Slaxx Trailer Released

Shudder has released the official trailer for Slaxx. Tensions are at a peak in the horror-comedy flick as employees at CCC, a fashion store for young people, are tasked with putting the new collection, which is to be launched with great fanfare the next day at dawn, on the shelves. The highlight of the launch are the Super Shaper jeans, made from organic cotton, which have the ability to adjust perfectly to the form of any human body. To avoid anyone giving away the secret behind this new product, the premises are padlocked, and the telephone and Internet are disconnected.

While preparations are underway, members of the team mysteriously disappear. Libby McClean (Romane Denis), an idealistic young salesclerk who was hired the same day, discovers the mutilated bodies of three of her co-workers. She discovers that the deceased team members had secretly tried on the revolutionary pants. Determined to cover up the affair, Craig, the arrogant owner of CCC, locks Libby in a closet and sets off on the trail of the murderer.

Slaxx, directed by Elza Kephart, arrives on the streaming platform March 18. Check out the trailer and official poster below.
