Using a cell phone for just 30 minutes a week may increase the risk of high blood pressure, a leading cause of heart attacks and strokes, according to new research. People who spent that amount of time talking, even hands-free, saw their risk for hypertension rise by 12%. Those who spent 6 hours a week on the phone raised this risk by 25%. The research team, at Southern Medical University in China, surmised that mobile phone use could be contributing to the growing number of cases of the deadly disease, as rates have more than doubled in recent decades. Cell phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy, which has been linked to increases in blood pressure after short-term exposure.


Even “America’s dad” Tom Hanks has days where he isn’t a perfectly nice guy. He admitted that he can be a nightmare on movie sets while promoting his debut novel “The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece”, centered on the production of a superhero movie, and featuring an egotistical actor who disrupts filming. Hanks told BBC: “I have pulled every single one of those moments of behavior myself on a set. Not everybody is at their best every single day…I’ve had tough days trying to be a professional when my life has been falling apart…and the requirement for me that day is to be funny, charming and loving.” He declined to mention on which movie sets he was “a nightmare” to work with.

S.W.A.T.” fans had quite the roller coaster ride – but one that ended on a high note, as CBS reversed its decision and un-canceled the cop show for one more season. Fans were appropriately upset about the series being canceled, and Shemar Moore even spoke out about it, using some dirty language while calling it a mistake. Next, the network and Sony Pictures TV came to an agreement and renewed S.W.A.T. for a 13-episode final season. As soon as news broke, fans took to social media in droves to share their excitement that 20-Squad will indeed be back for another season.

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story” quickly established its reign over Netflix‘s English-language TV charts for the week of May 1-7, amassing 148.28M viewing hours in its first weekend on the streamer. Such a strong start for the Shonda Rhimes prequel series could indicate it will join both seasons of “Bridgerton” among Netflix’s most-watched series of all time. Each season drew more than 600M hours viewed in their first 28 days on the service. “Queen Charlotte” appeared in Netflix’s top-10 in 91 countries.

Warner Bros. has set a release date for Tim Burton’s “Beetlejuice 2.” Sadly, saying his name 3 times won’t summon the movie any earlier than Sept. 6, 2024. The sequel follows Burton’s 1988 horror comedy, which starred Michael Keaton as a ghoulish “bio-exorcist” hired by a recently deceased couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) to rid their home of the pushy new humans who have moved in. The movie was embraced for its offbeat sense of humor, inventive visuals, and music – both Danny Elfman’s unforgettable score and the Harry Belafonte songs on the soundtrack.
