It's the year's first major movie, and it's a sequel almost 20 years in the making. In Glass, writer-director M. Night Shyamalan brings together characters from two of his most beloved films, Unbreakable and Split, for a psychological thriller about the existence of super-powered human beings. On one side you have those who believe they have special unexplainable super powers, like returning characters Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and The Horde (James…
Colin Cowherd and Houston Texans safety, Kareem Jackson, discuss the best NFL wide receivers he has ever faced. Included in the mix are Houston Texans’ star DeAndre Hopkins, Atlanta Falcons standout Julio Jones and Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Katherine Jackson, the matriarch of the famed Jackson family, is reportedly gravely ill, with family members already fighting over her share of the late Michael Jackson’s estate (according to Stacy M. Brown – National Newspaper Publishers Association/NNPA) .
Outlets like Radar Online and even the Atlanta Black Star have reported that Jackson, 88, is facing brain surgery.
Previously, the outlets reported that Jackson has had several strokes and other ailments that have left her wheelchair-bound and dependent upon caretakers.
The latest reports also suggest that several of Jackson’s children have engaged in a fierce battle to control their mother’s share of the late King of Pop’s vast estate – valued at more than $ 1 billion.
“Now everybody in the family is jockeying for position!” a source told the National Enquirer. Although a rep denied it, two family insiders claimed the great-grandmother has suffered from excruciating headaches, leading to a hospital visit in late summer, the tabloid reported.
“Katherine is in dire condition,” another source told RadarOnline.com. “Now everybody in the family is jockeying for position.”
“Her doctor thought she had a stroke,” another unnamed source – described as an insider – told Radar. According to another source, Katherine remained hospitalized for about a week.
“More tests were conducted to see if her condition might be something even more serious – like a brain tumor,” the source said.
The family insider said doctors discovered a golf ball-sized growth on Katherine’s brain and declared she must undergo surgery as soon as possible.

We put some of the most burning questions from Fandom’s Mortal Engines fan communities to producer Peter Jackson, director Christian Rivers and the cast of the film. Questions like what they want to see in a sequel. Which Traction City they would want to live in. And, perhaps most importantly, what’s Thaddeus Valentine’s favourite dad joke? Read some of what they said below; watch the video above for more.
What Would You Like To See in a Sequel?
“I’d like to see Dog in the next one,” says Leila George who plays Katherine Valentine, daughter of Hugo Weaving’s villain Thaddeus, in Mortal Engines.
Robert Sheehan, who plays Tom Natsworthy in the film, wants to see his character take on more responsibility.
“In the second book, Tom and Hester have become parents,” he says. Hester is Hester Shaw, the film’s main protagonist, played by Hera Hilmar. “So that would be quite nice wouldn’t it? To play a dad. Do you know what’s interesting? I’ve never played a dad. Hopefully, I wouldn’t drop the poor devil.”
Stephen Lang, who plays cyborg Stalker Shrike, meanwhile says he wants to see “the elopement between Valentine and Shrike.”
We think he’s joking. Valentine actor Hugo Weaving concurs: “The love story between these two. It was sad, the backstory.”
Producer Peter Jackson, who also co-wrote the screenplay which is based on the Phillip Reeve novel, wants to see a Traction City in the next one that doesn’t make an appearance here.
“I do look forward to seeing Sydney,” he says. “The traction city of Sydney, which has got a lot of corks floating around the top of it — big swinging corks. And it’s another chance to poke fun at Australians, so why not?”
Co-producer and screenwriter Philippa Boyens wants to see a Traction City absent from their adaptation of Mortal Engines too: “I want to see Arkangel, which is the giant traction city which inhabits the wastelands in the north.”
Jackson also cites Anchorage from “the second story, which is a Traction City on skids on the ice, that is wind-powered.”
Director Christian Rivers, meanwhile, is disappointed we didn’t get to see the Traction City of Panzerstadt in the film – but says there’s a Star Wars-related reason it was left out.
“There is a great moment in the book where they test fire [weapon of mass destruction] Medusa and it destroys Panzerstadt,” he explains. “The shock of people seeing that, because it’s so unnatural to [the tenets of] Municipal Darwinism, it would be like seeing a gazelle eating a lion. It has that unnatural quality about it, everyone is terrified by it. So that would have been cool to see but the reason we don’t see that is for the clarity and the efficiency of the storytelling. We’re going to see this thing go off, [so we need to see it fire] at the target. We don’t want to have a little test drive.”
He adds, “And possibly it might have actually been too akin to Star Wars, actually seeing the Death Star blow up Alderaan, as a mechanic.”
Watch the rest of what they had to say in the video above.
Mortal Engines hits screens in Australia on December 6, the UK on December 8 and the US on December 14.
‘The Lord of the Rings’ film-maker was keen to adapt Philip Reeve’s novel with colleague Christian Rivers and help kickstart the Oscar-winning visual effects artist’s debut directing career. Rough cut (no reporter narration).
Actress Skai Jackson will be adding author to her resumé by 2019. The Disney channel is penning a new book called “Reach for the Skai: How to Inspire, Empower, and Clapback.” The book will cover the 16-year-old’s, “lessons on life and rise to stardom, as well as the negative experiences that sometimes comes with living in the spotlight.”
She may be young bu she’s achieved success and is living in the spotlight so some may say she’s more than qualified to write on those topics.
