That’s right, Aziz Jindani’s animated political satire is all geared up to have a wide theatrical release in over 50 screens across the country, and will be dubbed in three languages – Spanish, Catalan and Basque – and titled El Rey BurroEl Rei Ruc and Asto Erregea respectively. The trailers for both the Spanish version and the Catalan version are already out!

This is the first Pakistani film to be released in Spain.

Said Jindani, “We are ecstatic that Donkey King has found resonance with global cine distributors. It is proof that a good story, grounded in universal insight, has the ability to transcend boundaries and geographical barriers. We are not done yet though… Spain se aagay jehan aur bhi hain (there is a long way ahead after Spain too).”

The Donkey King will have its Spanish premiere on October 4.

Lord of the Rings show to start filming soon https://www.fhmpakistan.com/grapevine/lord-of-the-rings-show-to-start-filming-soon/ Sun, 22 Sep 2019 04:38:49 +0000 https://www.fhmpakistan.com/?p=82269 US-based streaming giant Amazon announced its big-budget Lord of the Rings series will within months start filming in New Zealand, home to Peter Jackson’s movies of the fantasy epic....

US-based streaming giant Amazon announced its big-budget Lord of the Rings series will within months start filming in New Zealand, home to Peter Jackson’s movies of the fantasy epic.

Amazon is reportedly spending US$1 billion-plus on the series as it seeks to emulate the runaway success enjoyed by Games of Thrones.

Showrunners JD Payne and Patrick McKay said the South Pacific nation offered the “primordial beauty” of Middle Earth, the setting for JRR Tolkien’s tales of elves, dwarf and hobbits.

“We needed to find somewhere majestic, with pristine coasts, forests, and mountains, that also is home to world-class sets, studios, and highly skilled and experienced craftspeople,” they said in a statement. Amazon Studios said pre-production had already begun and shooting would start in Auckland “in the coming months”.

It has already made a multi-season commitment to the series, which will explore storylines set long before the events depicted in Jackson’s films.

The Kiwi director’s Rings trilogy and the equally popular, but less critically acclaimed three-parter The Hobbit, sparked a tourism boom in New Zealand.

The movies also transformed New Zealand’s film sector from a cottage industry into a world leader, particularly in digital special effects.

“It’s great to see New Zealand’s association with Middle Earth is continuing,” Economic Development Minister Phil Twyford said.

Invest Auckland said the Amazon production would bring an “immense economic boost and job opportunities”.

New Zealanders have also embraced Middle Earth as part of the country’s cultural identity, even now — five years after the last Hobbit movie’s release — giant models of dragons and wizards decorate Wellington airport.

Jackson has no direct involvement in the series, although last year he wished its makers well and said he was available for consultation if needed.

Google is paying a tribute to the iconic comedy series Friends. It has created seven interactive icons to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the show.

Each character has been given their own icon on Google search results. You’ll see them on the right side of the search page, next to their character’s information.

When you search for Ross Geller, a sofa icon shows up. Upon clicking, the screen will tilt and you can hear a sound bite of Ross yelling “Pivot!” If you click enough times, the sofa icon splits into two and you hear Ross saying, ”Okay, I don’t think it’s gonna pivot anymore.”

A search for Pheobe Buffay shows an icon of a guitar. If you click on the guitar, a black cat pops up on the screen and Phoebe sings Smelly Cat.

Clicking on Rachel Green’s icon of her famous hairstyle, a Google Images search result of the iconic hairdo crops up.

Monica Geller’s obsession with cleanliness knows no bounds. She has been given a soap bucket icon. A sponge pops up and makes a squeaky sound upon clicking.

Chandler Bing’s character has been given an icon of his relaxing chair. After clicking on the icon, Chandler’s beloved pets – a chick and a duck appear on the screen.

Joey Tribbiani doesn’t like to share food, and Google has made sure it pays tribute to the character with a pizza icon.

House Hunters’ host Suzanne Whang dead at 56 after 13-year cancer battle https://www.fhmpakistan.com/fhm-breeze/house-hunters-host-suzanne-whang-dead-at-56-after-13-year-cancer-battle/ Sat, 21 Sep 2019 05:51:52 +0000 https://www.fhmpakistan.com/?p=82235 House Hunters host Suzanne Whang has died at 56 following a battle with breast cancer, her partner confirmed on Facebook. The HGTV personality, who hosted and narrated the long-running real estate show from 1999 to 2007, died at 7:20PM Tuesday night. Whang’s partner, Jeff Vezain, confirmed on Thursday, via an emotional Facebook post, that she died at their Los Angeles home at 7:20 p.m. Tuesday as he “knelt beside her and caressed her.” In addition to hosting “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” for years, Whang also had roles on TV and in movies. “A lifetime of love, adventure, humor and bliss now lives in our memories,” Vezain wrote, using Whang’s Facebook account. “For thirteen years she confronted cancer with courage, humor, determination and optimism. She was immensely encouraged by the love of her family, friends and those she had yet to meet. Your kind, loving messages always lifted her spirits. I know she would prefer that her life be celebrated, as opposed to her passing mourned, but I also know how vehemently she disagreed with anyone being told, ‘Don’t cry.’ So … cry if you will. I’ve been crying a LOT! And laughing…and everything in between.”

Lifestyle changes that can help controlling Climate Change https://www.fhmpakistan.com/fashion-beauty/lifestyle-changes-that-can-help-controlling-climate-change/ Sat, 21 Sep 2019 05:48:46 +0000 https://www.fhmpakistan.com/?p=82229 Climate Week might be coming to an end but climate change is not, and there are easy lifestyle changes we can adopt to do our bit to help tackle climate change—from the big and more expensive (powering your home with solar panels) to the small and more accessible (switching to LED lightbulbs). So, here are some steps you can take if you are looking for ways to cut down your carbon footprint. Cut down on non-renewable energy sources  Installing solar panels and other forms of renewable energy systems in your home is a fantastic way of cutting your energy use, but it’s not feasible for everyone. Other ways of reducing your carbon footprint is simply cutting down on the amount of energy you use on a day-to-day basis—including reducing the air-con and heating—by putting on a jumper or using a hot water bottle instead of turning up the heat on the thermostat. Change the way you travel Ditching the car and switching to public methods of transport  or choosing to cycle and walk places instead is another lifestyle change that benefits the environment. Alternatively, if public transport isn’t an option, you might want to try carpools or vanpools—or working from home (i.e. telecommuting), which cuts down on transport emissions by cutting back on travel. Remember–reduce, reuse, recycle Another tip: remember the three R’s. Reducing the amount of stuff we buy—whether that be clothes or tech—reduces the energy involved in the production of those products, which in turn reduces our carbon footprint. As well as ditching fast fashion and thinking twice before we upgrade, we can reduce energy use by reusing products purchased secondhand (vintage clothes, refurbished tech).

Pakistani celebrities are here to remind us that makeup is just an accessory not a necessity. And also that they are just like us. Not every day is glamour-filled. There are errands to be done and days when it’s best to ditch makeup.

From time to time, Pakistani starlets have shared pictures of themselves without a lick of makeup. The message, self-love, acceptance and confidence, to reinforce a realistic standard of beauty amongst women.

We have compiled some of these beautiful and empowering barefaced selfies, and here they are:

So I have always struggled with mild acne. Always had these bumps on my forehead that JUST WOULD NOT BUDGE! I had gotten used to them. But the journey I have been on for a couple of months has been quite a painful one. I’d just come back to chitral from a day trip to kalash and after I had washed my face it started to burn and my skin went red. Didn’t take it seriously but the next day I had these tiny red bumps ALL OVER MY FACE.I freaked out but didn’t let it get the best of me because I was at work. They would show on camera, everybody started to ask me, started with the totkas and then came the anxiety.. khair when I got back they kind of calmed down.My skin looked clearer than before. But some three months back it started to act up again and it was even worse this time! I kept it clean,toner,creams,dermatologists,everything! Nothing seemed to fix my skin and I had my night AND days of crying. Feeling insecure. Anxiety. Makeup wouldn’t help. I was a mess but I went through it and got out of it too. I went to a different doctor and he prescribed me some meds. My skin has been better than before. But it made me wonder.. Why is my skin defining me? Who has made these beauty standards that we always feel the need to match? The society? Clear skin is beauty? I know that the idea of being “perfect” is appealing to majority but you don’t need to be an airbrushed flawless image to feel beautiful. Nobody should feel the pressure of matching the ridiculous societal beauty standards.Have your own.Beauty is within and anybody who makes you feel small because of what you LOOK like shouldn’t be around you! To all the brothers and sisters out there! Being a celebrity does not mean perfection; it only means we have chosen a profession that makes us and our lives public but certainly not that we do not go through issues in life; Every individual has their own. Perfection is not what we should be seeking, being comfortable in our own skin is the key. This is my skin at the moment. Better than before but still not quite okay. But till I tackle it am I gonna hide myself from the world? Shy away from people? No. Yes I am struggling but my skin DOES NOT define me. 🙏🏽

The second installment of IT Chapter 2 was released recently and relayed the end of the Pennywise saga adapted from Stephen King’s best-selling novel. However, recent reports suggest that another story might be in the works. Director Andy Muschietti has hinted at the possibility that he has more stories to tell, and that he is open to the possibility of directing the third film in the IT franchise.

In a recent interview with io9, Muschietti talked about a potential third film, given the success of both the movies. “There is a whole mythology to the book. Mythology is something that always has opportunities to explore,” he explained. “It [aka Pennywise] has been on Earth for millions of years. He’s been in contact with humans for hundreds of years, every 27 years. So you can imagine the amount of material.”

Though Muschietti hinted at a third installment, nothing has yet been confirmed. “It’s always exciting to think of eventually exploring this mythology. It’s very exciting. But, for now, there’s nothing on the table,” he added.

With Pennywise being around for millions of years, it’s possible that the third film could be a prequel, and take place before the events of IT (2017), which collected $700 million worldwide.

A US reporter has become subject of viral memes after a video of her saying she tried to reach a dead man for “comment” live on air.

Sara Welch made the gaffe on air saying she tried to reach out to a man for comments but he was not available while reporting on an incident which involved the death of a suspect in a police chase.

“We tried to reach out to the man who died in this pursuit. They were unavailable for comment. Back to you,” she could be heard saying live on TV.

And of course, because the internet never lets anything die, social media users had a field day trolling Welch.

Sean, 60, said: “I’ve turned down stuff.

He’s been beheaded in Game of Thrones, probably been the only man to be taken out by a cow in The Field, brutally ripped to shreds in Black Death, and shot with arrows in Lord of The Rings. But after over 3 decades of acting out various death scenes, Sean Bean is well and truly fed up of his characters getting killed off and has now taken the drastic measure to reject roles in which his character’s fate will land him 6 feet under.
