Ashton Kutcher had party at bar where Thousand Oaks shooting happened

Ashton Kutcher is calling for more than thoughts and prayers in the wake of the mass shooting at a California bar.

He's calling on Ivanka Trump to do something about gun reform.

The actor posted on Twitter that he has a personal tie to the bar, as his wife threw him a birthday party there.

"My wife threw me a birthday party this year at the Borderline," Kutcher wrote on Twitter on Thursday, the day after 12 people were killed in a shooting at the Thousand Oaks bar. "Only reason we are alive is the shooter chose a different night. My heart goes out to the victims. Ill say it again… Gun Reform Now! Politicians need to stop standing behind the dollar & Protect the people!"

Kutcher went on to make several points about the need for gun control reforms in spite of his history with guns, writing he "grew up a hunter" and "worked at a gun club, pulling trap, growing up."

Kutcher then added another level to his personal appeal to the first daughter.

". @IvankaTrump your brother in law was at that birthday party. He could have just as easily been a victim. You go to synagogues you could be a victim! Talk to your dad! Plead with your dad! Let this be your legacy! Gun Reform now!" Kutcher wrote.

Trump has not commented publicly on the plea, nor has her brother-in-law, Joshua Kushner.

Joshua Kushner and Kutcher are both active technology investors and have reportedly been friends for years.

In a 2011 article in the now-defunct Details magazine, Joshua Kushner said that he met Kutcher through his brother Jared Kushner, who is now married to Ivanka Trump and is a senior advisor to President Donald Trump.

"I think Ashton is one of the smartest people in this space, and I really like working with him," Joshua Kushner said about Kutcher in 2011. "We invest in a lot of the same companies, and I ask him for feedback on projects all of the time."

According to Us Weekly, Kutcher and his wife, actress Mila Kunis, were among the small group of guests invited to Kushner's recent wedding to model Karlie Kloss.

Though the Trump administration's willingness to pursue gun reform remains in question, Joshua Kushner suggested that he might be in favor of gun control, having posted an Instagram post of his then-girlfriend Kloss at the March for Our Lives rally that was organized by the students impacted by the Parkland school shooting in March.

Game Of Thrones trailer and final series date revealed

Game Of Thrones will return for its eighth and final series in April next year, HBO has confirmed in a new teaser trailer for the show.

A clip announcing the return of the hit series, which first aired in 2011, features the tagline: "For The Throne."

While few details are revealed, the video shows key moments from past series and lets fans know when they can expect to see the much anticipated final season, which will be broadcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.

Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage will reprise their roles as Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister, while Lena Headey will return to face them as the key antagonist, Cersei Lannister.

Speaking backstage at the Emmys in September, the show's boss David Benioff said the final season took a long time to make "because it's the biggest thing we've ever done".

"Even though it's six episodes, it was nearly a full year in Belfast either prepping it or shooting it," he said.

"It's quite extraordinary what the crew and the actors created, and I think when people see it they'll understand why it took so long.

"No one's going on vacation or slacking off, it's just that last season is far beyond what we've ever attempted before, and it is taking a really f****** long time – and I hope it will be worth it."

By the time the season airs it will be almost two years since the seventh series of the show, based on George RR Martin's book series A Song of Ice and Fire, was broadcast in summer 2017.

Earlier this year, HBO revealed it was moving ahead with a Game of Thrones prequel set thousands of years before the events of the TV show, and that it would be the first of five potential spin-off projects. (more…)

German Playboy regrets ‘misquoting’ composer Ennio Morricone

German Playboy has distanced itself from an interview with Ennio Morricone after it quoted the Italian composer referring to Quentin Tarantino as a "cretin".

The German edition of the men's magazine says a freelance reporter may have misquoted the legendary 90-year-old film composer in its latest edition.

The interview, published last week, quoted Morricone referring to the US film director as a "cretin" who stole ideas from others.

He was also quoted as saying the Oscars ceremony was "boring".

Morricone, who won an Oscar in 2016 for the music for Tarantino's film The Hateful Eight, has vehemently denied criticising the director, his films or the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

"I consider Tarantino a great director," Morricone said.

He also credited their collaboration for his Oscar success, "which is for sure one of the greatest acknowledgements of my career, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to compose music for his film".

German Playboy, which is published by Munich-based Hubert Burda Media, said that "up to now, we have considered the freelancer who conducted the Ennio Morricone interview on our behalf to be a renowned print and radio journalist".

Florian Boitin, the magazine's editor-in-chief, said in a statement: "Based on the information now at our disposal, we must unfortunately assume that the words spoken in the interview have, in part, been reproduced incorrectly.

"We would like to express our regret should Mr Morricone have been portrayed in a false light," he added. (more…)

"He also treated us to some of his own @backbeatbbq. Thanks Dave! It was excellent!"
