Netflix Paid $105 Million To Unite Some Of The World’s Greatest Actors For What May Be The Most Anticipated Film Of The Century

What do you get when you put together Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and Al Pacino? An awesome movie. That’s what. On top of all these incredible icons, you also have an Oscar-winning director: Martin Scorsese. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it’s happening!

According to reports, Netflix has successfully secured its rights to what is shaping up to be the most anticipated films of the decade. They shelled out $105 million in order to have right to ‘The Irishman’ and let’s be real here, people can’t wait to see this.

It has been reported that the deal will allow Netflix to share the film to not only their 93 million subscribers but that it will also boost their subscriptions. Apparently, Netflix started the negotiations with Scorsese shortly after Paramount Pictures dropped out of the project.

According to Daily Mail, a spokesperson noted that Scorsese’s films are known to be a risky deal and Paramount does not typically take risks. By joining Netflix, he is able to do the film that he wants.

So what’s this film even about? Well, it’s based on the life of mob hitman Frank Sheeran who allegedly confessed on his deathbed to murdering his good friend Jimmy Hoffa.

Jimmy Hoffa is the union leader whose disappearance remains one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in American history. The story itself sounds incredible and the list of actors just adds to it.

Daily Mail writes that De Niro will be playing Sheeran and it’ll be his ninth film with Scorsese. The director helped launch the actor’s career back in 1972 with Mean Streets.

And as for the role of Hoffa? That’ll be played by none other than Al Pacino, who’s another Oscar winner and happens to be a good friend of Robert De Niro’s. But this will be Pacino’s first Scorsese film!

All the actors in the film are pretty familiar with one another and most have starred in past films together. But this will be the first time the group will all be involved in working on a film together…simultaneously.

IndieWire was the first to report details of the deal between Netflix and Scorsese. Netflix has become known for the autonomy that it has given its talent.

This is something that ‘Orange is the New Black’ creator Jenji Kohan and Brit Marling of ‘The OA’ have raved about in interviews. We honestly can’t wait for this film to be released.

Check Out This Harley-Davidson… Limousine?

If a motorcycle genie appeared and granted you one wish in the form of any Harley-Davidson bike you wanted, what would you choose?

Would you go for a sturdy Softail for long rides in the country?

Perhaps you would opt for a fast and sporty V-Rod.

On the other hand, maybe your dream machine is an HD limo.

To clarify, we are not talking about a stretch Cadillac decked out in black with orange pinstripes. Nope. Not even close.

Harley Limo Hybrid

The Harley-Davidson limo—which actually exists—is part motorcycle, part limousine and 100 percent eye-catching.

This hybrid combines a 2012 Harley in the front and an eight-person carriage in the back, which is more than merely a shell with seats.

The pearl white limo features everything you would expect in a luxury ride: a bar, a flat screen television, a sound system, air conditioning, tinted electric windows, vertically opening doors and a rumble seat of sorts in the back, which allows a pair of passengers to perch in the open air while cruising.

Nearly 20 feet long, the bike/carriage crossbreed boasts 1.75 tons of steel, which is powered by a 5.7 liter, 350 HP V8 Chevy engine.

Unfortunately, you cannot simply stroll into your local Harley-Davidson dealership and purchase your own limo bike.

This custom-made machine belongs to a company called Wildfire Tours in Queensland, Australia.

However, if you have longed to view the Gold Coast, this might be the most unique and memorable way to do so.

New Lure turns Dead Fish Into Zombies

We all know that live bait is best. When you’re out there trying to catch the Big One, you’ll do whatever it takes… but sometimes live bait is just impossible to get and keep alive.

Can you imagine having a robotic fishing lure device that you could place down a dead fish’s throat and have it “come back to life” and perform almost exactly like a live bait in the water?

Well, these four fishing fanatics have created it, and they are about halfway to meeting their Kickstarter goal of getting this brand new device into production and in the hands of countless anglers.

Here are just a few of the unique features on this revolutionary fishing device called the “Zombait”.

Completely waterproof up to depths of 200 feet

Water activated, so the batteries and the dead fish only move once in the water

Corrosion free material

Rechargeable batteries

Small enough to fit inside of most all dead bait (saltwater and freshwater)

Lithium Ion batteries provide 2-3 hours of underwater movement in any dead bait fish

How Does Zombait Robotic Lure Work?

The Zombait Kickstarter Video

Here is the video that they have on Kickstarter.

How much does the Zombait cost?

According to the Kickstarter campaign, a single Zombait lure plus rechargeable battery costs $59. They do have higher options to get bundles, etc.

2018 Dodge RAM Rebel TRX HELLCAT

Ram Rebel TRX Concept

Ford has proven that fast off-road trucks are awesome. Dodge has proven that ridiculously powerful supercharged V8s are awesome. Combining the two would theoretically be even more awesome. The Ram Rebel TRX, which was unveiled at the Texas State Fair, proves that theory. 

(Video below)

As you may have guessed from the intro, the Rebel TRX uses a supercharged V8. A version of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 from the Hellcat twins (and, we suspect, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk). Because of some new calibrations to make the engine more suited for off-road driving, it doesn’t make the full 707 horsepower of the Charger and Challenger. But the TRX engine still cranks out 575 horsepower, which is a full 125 more than the new SVT Raptor. That’s enough to propel the mega-sized truck to 100 mph in its off road terrain mode. 

​​Power is transferred through an 8-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels. At the back, the Rebel TRX has an electronic locking differential. The TRX also gets an updated version of the Ram’s 4×4 Performance Control System featuring Normal, Wet/Snow, Off-road and – best of all – Baja modes. The latter mode is the one that will do triple digits through the desert. 

Of course a sweet powertrain needs chassis and tire upgrades to round out the package, and the Rebel TRX has plenty of improvements. The standard Ram 1500 frame is unchanged, but bolted to it are custom front control arms, internal bypass shocks at each corner and new springs. The changes bring suspension travel to a full 13 inches all around. It also provides enough space to fit massive 37 x 13.5-inch tires. Ram also added six-piston calipers with 15-inch discs at the front and 14-inch discs at the back. 

Finally, Ram gave all this heavy duty equipment a big, burly wrapper. The body is a full six-inches wider than the standard 1500 with large composite fenders to cover the aforementioned tires. The truck also has a vented and scooped hood based on the Ram HD. This was necessary to help cool the engine and provide vertical clearance for the supercharger. A large sport bar was added to the back and has provisions for carrying a pair of spare tires, plus an LED light bar on top. The truck also has a big steel skid plate up front, and a sweet integrated side-exit exhaust behind the doors. 

Inside, the truck gets plenty of leather, suede and carbon fiber. The front seats also have racing harnesses attached to a harness bar that spans the B-pillars. And Rebel TRX takes a page out of the Porsche playbook with Nylon-door pulls instead of handles. 

Now of course this isn’t a true Raptor rival yet because it’s just a one-off concept. But Ram did say that the company is looking at the market to see if a truck like this would be a good idea, as well as the intention to offer more off-road friendly vehicles. So Ram fans, if you really want this truck, you’d better make sure Chrysler hears you. We would certainly love to see it reach production, and we already like the swagger of the TRX name. You know T-Rex, as in bigger and badder than a Raptor.

Crescent wrench showdown, which is stronger $35 made in USA or $5 made in China?

Wranglestar is back with another Amazon tool showdown.

The price difference between these two forged alloy steel crescent wrenches is just staggering. One is an 8″ S&K made in the USA for $35 while the other is an 8″ Onsite that was sold as part of a $5 three-pack.

It’s important to keep America first, but sever sticker shock like this is making it difficult for some shoppers to keep their money in-country.

Wranglestar will push both tools to their breaking point and see which one fails first in the video below.

Jump ahead to the 15:50 minute mark to see the results and hear the conclusions

This Scary Helmet-Cam Footage Of A Bear Charging A Mountain Biker Has Gone Viral

Mountain biking through scenic woods seems like a really fun activity. Well, Dorothy, I’m about to ruin it for you. Here’s a little reminder that the woods are full of lions and tigers and bears. OK, I’m not sure about the lions and tigers part. But there are definitely bears in the woods.

Eurasian Brown Bear

A video of two Slovakian mountain bikers encountering a bear and capturing the incident on a helmet-cam has gone viral—with the YouTube video they posted garnering over 11 million views.

YouTube user Dusan Vinzik and his buddy appear to be enjoying a nice ride down a wooded trail when all of a sudden, a bear tries to turn Vinzik’s buddy into his “Revenant” co-star:

Vinzik yells—in dramatic slow-motion—what we are assuming is the Slovakian word for “BEAR!” in time to warn his friend to pump his brakes and make a hasty retreat.

I give credit to Vinzik, because I think I would have simply turned around and let the bear chase after my friend.

2018 Chevy Chevelle

The brand new concept 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is actually an old one – it’s a known Chevelle from 1977 which has caught the hearts from many Chevy lovers. If you also loved (or still love) Camaro from the same manufacturer, you’ll be gladdened to hear that they prepared very similar model to it. Finally, be careful with all information about this model, because, it’s still unconfirmed information.

As the known Camaro, the 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is three-door concept car with characteristic Chevy features. That means rounded edges, strong but nice and new LED headlights and sharper and angled fog lights. The front bumper is designed to allow aerodynamic performances of the car, which is matched with a long hood and strong machine under it. The whole car, looking from the side is close to looking of the trunk, especially with the rear end which is really amazing.

2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS interior

The cabin of the 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS represents the great and innovative design for a future year. Even some details are from known Camaro, the main inside features are original for this car. The large and roomy cabin is beautified with flat and comfort seats, but hard enough for you and your passengers’ safety even on high speeds. This comfort is fulfilled with very wide entertainment system, like Bluetooth phone connectivity, mp3 audio system, USB ports, auxiliary output, and sound and audio system. All is just a part of new-age infotainment technology, which is contained of navigation, cruise control, all important numbers like the temperature, miles, fuel economy and all is shown in large touchscreen display in the middle of the dashboard.

ENGINE

There will be two engine options. First one is a 2.0-liter engine with 294 horsepower and the second one is 3.3 liter V6 much stronger than the first version. Knowing the size of 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, it’s hard to expect low fuel economy for this size car, so before we learn the information about that, we can predict the high number. Smaller engine has 500 pound-feet of torque, which is much higher than on every in this class

2018 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SS PRICE

Expected starting price for this concept car is around $30,000, which is also very favorable in this class. But, before you start to think about the buying of the new car, let’s say that Chevrolet has never confirmed production of it. It’s still a rumor as many of them on the internet, but we still expect some novelties from Chevrolet and some of them can be very similar to this concept, too.

Squirrel Eats The Wrong Mushrooms, Gets Stoned And Goes On Epic Journey Through The Cosmos For Acorns

As a law-abiding member of society, I have definitely never been stoned (honest). However, a lot of people I know have, and they’ve recounted their dramatic experiences to me. One of these friends of mine actually got high after accidentally eating a pot brownie.

When cannabis is eaten, its effects are more potent, and this person experienced a phenomenon known as “greening out”. They reportedly felt paranoid, convinced that the other partygoers were going to kill them, before going into a spaced-out trance.

The effects of drugs vary from person to person, however, the smaller someone is, generally speaking, the greater the chances are that they will experience adverse effects. That’s why sane people never give drugs to animals. It’s a form of abuse.

So when a hungry squirrel accidentally ate magic mushrooms, the results were dramatic to say the least. It only takes a small amount of the drug to get an average-sized human stoned, and the squirrel was rendered almost completely incapacitated.

The stoned squirrel was found by a kindly dog walker who noticed that he was in some serious trouble. She initially assumed that the animal had been attacked, but it didn’t take her long to see the mushroom patch and work out what had happened.

People who have taken magic mushrooms have reported various side effects, but the number one effect of the natural drug is hallucinations. There have been no recorded fatalities associated with magic mushrooms, so the squirrel’s life wasn’t in danger.

But nothing could have prepared him for the accidental trip he was about to go on…

Magic mushrooms might be the third safest drug in the world, but if they are consumed in large quantities their side effects can be extreme to say the least. That’s why they are illegal in many countries including the United States.

The dog walker filmed the stoned squirrel and uploaded the footage to YouTube under the name Vet Wife.

“So the dogs and I were walking, and we found this little guy in the park,” she said. “At first, I thought he’d gotten attacked by a dog or something. He [tried] to stand up, and he [flopped] all over the place.”

“I saw that he had something in his mouth and realised [that] the b*gger’s been munching on mushrooms.”

“I’m not sure if those are poisonous or not, but they definitely got him in a tizzy. So I’m going to try and take him back.”

The woman tries to usher her dogs away from the stoned squirrel. When one of them gets close to it, the squirrel manages to stagger away, but he wasn’t able to get far. The stoned squirrel was terrified and confused. However, the dog soon gave up sniffing it.

“Yeah, he’s pretty stoned,” the woman says as the video ends.

You can watch the dramatic footage on YouTube here:

But it turns out that there are some animals which deliberately take psychedelic drugs. Dolphins, for example, have been known to squeeze puffer fish so that they can get high on their nerve toxins, putting them into a trance-like state.

We can only hope that this squirrel didn’t have a bad trip, and that he got the care he needed as he came down.

There’s no doubt that people will begin to speculate about that the squirrel saw on his trip. This is what I hope happened.

GUY GETS ABSOLUTELY RAGDOLLED BY A PALLET JACK (VIDEO)

Talk about the ultimate Monday Morning viral video. This dude has a great weekend, drags himself out of bed to get back to the grind unloading trucks all damn day, then – for whatever reason – forgets to set up the ramp for his first truck of the day. Next thing you know, his entire load goes crashing to the floor and he’s promptly launched into outer space before coming back and landing straight on his face.
