Former 20th Century Studios Executive Emma Watts Named President of Paramount Pictures

“The move reunites Gianopulos with Watts — the two worked together at 20th Century Fox for decades and enjoyed a close collaboration on hit franchises such as “Planet of the Apes” and “Kingsman.” It was Watts’ ability to oversee big, tentpole features that helped earn her the job.”

From @dennis_won:

“Hey, #AlitaArmy, we have decided to cancel our Trending Push on June 4th at 1100 UTC for #/AlitaFallenAngel to honor a fallen man. There is a right time for everything, now is the time to mourn for the loss of a precious life and to stand together. We honor #GeorgeFloyd”

See what you can do to fight police brutality and help George’s family at the following link: https://alitaarmy.org/2020/06/03/in-memory-of-george-floyd/

In Memory of George Floyd

George Floyd is an African American man who was killed by members of the Minneapolis Police Department May 25, 2020. The circumstances of his death while in police custody are shocking & disgusting. The country, and the world, are shaken by the video showing his last moments. Police brutality against African Americans must not be tolerated any longer.

Write the city & state officials and let them know that George’s death is unacceptable. They work for YOU. https://www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting/get-involved/contact-your-elected-representatives/

Please help us ease the suffering of his surviving family members by donating to the Official George Floyd Memorial Fund. https://www.gofundme.com/f/georgefloyd
