Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.” How big, you may or may not ask? Vogt-Roberts insists that Skull Island 's Kong is the biggest in the history of cinema. While Peter Jackson's Kong was on the smaller side around 25 feet and the original Kong varied in size from 25 to 50 feet, depending on whether or not he was hanging off the Empire State Building, Skull Island's Kong is bigger than both of them. Why the size change? Vogt-Roberts says that "the thing that most interested me was, how big do you need to make [Kong], so that when someone lands on this island and doesnt believe in the idea of myth, the idea of wonder – when we live in a world of social and civil unrest, and everything is crumbling around us, and technology and facts are taking over – how big does this creature need to be, so that when you stand on the ground and you look up at it, the only thing that can go through your mind is: ‘That’s a god.

Smith wore a casual red track suit and, as always, looked like Will Ferrell . Klinghoffer contorted his body as he ripped through their new (and awesome) album, The Getaway , as well as fan favorites Suck My Kiss and Californication. Trippy visuals played on the big screen behind the band, and the beautiful cascading lights hanging above the arena resembled the Pacific Ocean waves from the coast the Chili Peppers embody most. Theres no big production at a RHCP show. They dont need it. For them, the recipe for a stellar show is their long-lasting talent, merrymaking and overall tomfoolery. For the encore, Flea came back onstage in a handstand that took him all the way from stage left to stage right. The mischievous Chili Peppers will continue their worldwide tour through September with various openers, including Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue , Jack Irons , BABYMETAL and IRONTOM .

World-famous Ukrainian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin has made a call for love and unity in the latest campaign by clothing brand Diesel, dubbed as “Make Love Not Walls,” in a thinly veiled dig at the policies of new U.S. President Donald Trump. In a video directed by David Lachapelle and uploaded to YouTube on Feb. 14, Polunin, who was born in the city of Kherson in southern Ukraine, is seen wandering through a desert area until he reaches a tall grey wall with a barbed wire on top, apparently symbolizing the wall that President Trump says he will build between the United States and Mexico. The video, directed by American photographer and music video director David Lachapelle, famous for his exuberant style, was uploaded to Youtube on Feb. 14. Polunin throws a flower over the wall and starts a ballet routine. The camera angle then switches to the other side of the wall, where a few young people are hanging around.

The best investment you'll ever make. Finn Wolfhard took a break from hanging out in the Upside Down over the weekend to ask fans of Stranger Things to help him live out his dream of being a director. You know, typical teen stuff. SEE ALSO: 'Stranger Things' reveals Season 2 plot details, where the characters are now The Netflix sci-fi actor is teaming up with Vine star and filmmaker Josh Ovalle to create a Western-style music video for the band Playdate. Ovalle posted a video to YouTube in which Wolfhard explained their vision for the video and set the video's budget which is about $6,000. The pair have a Indiegogo page where anyone can donate as much money as they would like. The page now has over $2,000 so it seems like Wolfhard and Ovalle will be making their music video debut very soon. Read more... More about Finn Wolfhard , Stranger Things , and Watercooler

Many of us can likely attest to how uncomfortable it feels to have extra belly fat hanging over our pants every day. It can leave you feeling heavy, bloated, and sometimes even embarrassed around others. It seems that people of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels share this common issue, begging the question: Why can't we beat the belly bulge? In his article Are These the Reasons Why Youre Not Losing Belly Fat? , Dr. Mercola tackles this highly convoluted issue, pointing out that belly fat isn't just an aesthetic problem, but a health issue as well, and it can lead to other, more serious conditions. Abdominal fat actually produces inflammatory molecules, and high inflammation levels in your body can trigger a wide range of systemic diseases linked with metabolic syndrome. This is why carrying extra weight around your middle is linked to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and other chronic diseases, he says.

There's much merriment to be had throughout the land, as data-hungry power users once again return to their streaming music and video services without fear of sudden charges or slowdowns. It's been over five years since Verizon cut off access to unlimited data, and the number of customers hanging on to their grandfathered unlimited plans has dwindled down to a few grizzled veterans.

And certainly, that’s what we have this season.” The Walking Dead season 7 cliffhanger Who did Negan kill? That's the question hanging over The Walking Dead as we wait for season 7. And if you were wondering, “Yes, who was at the receiving end of Negan’s bat will be revealed in the first episode,” executive producer Greg Nicotero has confirmed to EW . Additionally, The Hollywood Reporter has published an article claiming that the team behind The Walking Dead have gone to extreme lengths to stop this spoiler from linking. Apparently, they have filmed 11 different death scenes, one for each character that Negan could have murdered with his barbed baseball bat, so that fans lingering near the set cannot tell who the real victim is. Until the footage is edited behind closed doors, the identity of Negan's prey will remain unclear. You've got to admire the effort that the cast and crew are going to here, just to stop a secret from getting out and spoiling the fun.

We finally made it to Bethlehem and were hanging out at a friend’s house listening to music when Jefe came up with the chorus for the song. Over the next nine days I wrote my verses, we finalized the song, and we filmed the video during our last night. It was the seventh music video we filmed after a three-week trip that included stops in Istanbul, London, and Frankfurt. During this trip, we also visited Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Qalqilya, where we visited the SkateQilya skate ramp, and skateboarded with local skaters. I was a camp counselor at the SkateQilya this past summer. They have an amazing program (and I recommend everyone check it out/get involved). PacMan and I wrote a song and filmed a video for it while in Qalqilya and that one will be released in the coming weeks or months. PacMan. (Photo: Abu Rahss) Back at Ben-Gurion on the way out we all got selected for the standard additional screening.

But where and how can you do that? That brings us to our next step. 2) Find people where they already are. One of the core tenets of inbound marketing is to avoid interrupting your audience. Instead, the best way to turn strangers into customers is to bring them to you , instead of fighting for their attention in a sea of marketing messages. Experiential marketing is no exception, which is why it’s often best executed when it takes a “you’re already there” approach -- knowing where your audience is already hanging out, and engaging them there. It can work on a number of different levels. There’s the approach of installing something small but noticeable where your audience already exists, like Google did with its Impact Challenge. The search engine giant wanted to involve the San Francisco Bay community in deciding where to make a multi-million-dollar donation, and installed large, interactive posters in places where people “had the time to make a difference” -- like bus shelters, food trucks, and restaurants.

There’s a reason for that. The AI report is complete and total bunk. It’s baseless, technically flawed and as they accurately reported over at Moon of Alabama , it wouldnt stand up in even the most rigged kangaroo court on the planet. Do you want to know many of those 13,000 victims of “torture, hanging and extermination” that AI has actual evidence of? Zero. How we were Misled about Syria: Amnesty International , by Tim Hayward: Since it is not just the strength of the condemnation that is noteworthy, but the swiftness of its delivery – in ‘real-time’ – a question that Amnesty International supporters might consider is how the organisation can provide instantaneous coverage of events while also fully investigating and verifying the evidence. Amnesty International is US State Department Propaganda, by Tony Cartalucci: Amnesty does indeed cover issues that are critical of US foreign policy, toward the bottom of their websites and at the back of their reports.

But, I didnt do that, but do you know what I did? When we run out of something in the kitchen there’s a pencil hanging up there on a chain, and bless your heart, I have to (or whoever it is that runs out), you have to write it on a tab, and of course I stole a piece of paper off of a sack, and I thought, “I’ll carry that little piece of paper in my skirt pocket, and every time I can get a hold of that pencil I’m going to write a word or two on that note.” And that’s what I did. It took quite a while to do it, but oh, I watched that garbage can! Every time I could take the garbage down there I did it. And you know, when it was just about full, and I thought, “The next evening, it’ll be full when we put all the garbage in it.” And so, that afternoon I broke my crucifix, and I laid it up on a shelf, and I had a hard time doing it because they’re watching me.
