October is National Youth Justice Awareness Month (YJAM) and Fusion is taking a deeper look into America’s juvenile system, which incarcerates over 50,000 children a day. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the documentary hopes to shed light on how the justice system will imprison children between 6-17 years of age, and how incarcerating underage children makes a difference in society and the behavior of the juvenile.

Simmons is no stranger to the discussion of underage children and jail.

Sony (@Sony) Altered Will Smith’s (@Will_Smith) “Concussion” (@ConcussionMovie) Film to Prevent NFL (@NFL) Protests

While the movie “Concussion” starring Will Smith is due out in December, the trailer was released just this Monday. It showed Will Smith as Bennet Omalu, whose work diagnosing a disease in American football players known as C.T.E. — a degenerative brain disease linked to repeated blows to the head — led to one of the N.F.L.’s biggest crises: a possibility that the game itself could be lethal.

The trailer showed several scenes depicting Dr. Omalu with jaw-dropping surprise in his lab and angrily demanding “the truth” from people who appear to be from the N.F.L. Many other scientists have built on Dr. Omalu’s work, which began in 2002, and the N.F.L. has since donated tens of millions of dollars to study the effects of concussions and develop ways of treating them.

Director Guillermo Del Toro (@GuiDelToroOffi) Wants Godzilla in Pacific Rim 3!

godzilla hey mikey atl

More monsters, more giant mecha suits (jaegers), and now The King of Monsters too! If director, Guillermo Del Toro has his way Godzilla will making an appearance in Pacific Rim 3! As you recall, Pacific Rim centers around Earth’s military trying to defend the planet from an otherworldly invasion of monsters from a portal in the Pacific Rim. The film was widely popular and successful, garnering a sequel that will be stomping its way into theaters in 2017. Guillermo feels adding Godzilla to the mix will make for an awesome film. Honestly, we have to agree. Can these mere humans in jaegers really be a match for a giant, invulnerable reptile who feeds on radiation and spits atomic energy? We think not!

godzilla vs jaeger hey  mikey atl

The sequel to Pacific Rim, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom would be the prequel to the aforementioned third film. One has to wonder what in the second film would lead to an appearance for Godzilla in the third one Del Toro states, “So far with the sequel, what we’re writing, what we’re creating, is very different, so there are no plans. Hypothetically, I would love the fuck out of it. I would love to see a jaeger and Godzilla duke it out. That would be too much for the human brain.” We would love to see the “Man vs. Monster” action too, but honestly we are rooting for Godzilla. Then again, these humans in this film are pretty technologically savvy. Maybe they will be the ones to bring MechaGodzilla to life!?
