Check your old Disney VHS tapes, they could be worth big money on the e-commerce site eBay.
Some Disney tapes from the Black Diamond Collection, released between 1984 and 1994 with a black diamond on the spine of the case, are going for between $50 and $250 on the retail bidding website.
The website thegamer.com reported, however, that one of the most valuable of all the movies in the collection is “101 Dalmatians,” released in 1992 and valued at around $6,000. If the video has “A Walt Disney Classic” on the tape it could be worth even more, and tapes with the original artwork that was changed at a later date by Disney are worth more, too. But a VHS tape of “Alice in Wonderland” is currently listed for $9,999.99 or best offer and a copy of “The Little Mermaid” in the original case is listed for $3,200.
As in any bidding format, just because a tape may be valuable and listed at a high price doesn’t mean it will sell for that price.
Disney’s Black Diamond Collection includes:
Chris Hemsworth will be portraying pro wrestler Hulk Hogan in an upcoming Netflix biopic.
The wrestler, whose real name is Terry Gene Bollea, started his career in the late 1970s in Florida, ultimately becoming the hero face of the WWF when Vince McMahon took over. Sports Illustrated reported that Hogan had a major impact on the increase in popularity of wrestling in the 1980s and 1990s, but scandal in the 2000s diminished his legacy.
In 2012, Hogan sued Gawker media for $100 million for invasion of privacy after the company published a sex tape that allegedly included the wrestler with the wife of a friend. The video also appeared to show Hogan using the N-word multiple times.
Hogan reached a $31 million settlement with Gawker in 2016, and the company filed for bankruptcy and sold itself to Univision for $135 million.
In the fallout, Hogan’s contract with the World Wrestling Hall of Fame was terminated, and references to the wrestler were removed from the WWE website. He was reinstated into the Hall of Fame in 2018.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film won’t be focusing on those later years and the biopic won’t cover Hogan’s entire life.
“Instead, sources say it will focus on his rise and is described as an origin story of the Hulkster and Hulkamania,” THR reported.
No release date has been announced as the project is still in its early stages.
All she needed was a corn dog and a catchy Beyonce like “Crazy in Love” song and a 2-year-old Nevada girl is now an internet sensation.
Baylor Mooney seems like a natural in the dance video her mom, Brooke Mooney, recorded.
“And it is just funny because the corn dog is what everyone loves about the video,” Mooney told KOLO-TV.
Mooney said she initially posted the video just for family and friends, but they urged her to release it to the public, so she did.
The video now has millions of hits on Facebook and Twitter.
Every year, celebrity guests at the Oscars get gift bags with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of swag, and the 2019 ceremony is no different.
Vox reported that a company called Distinctive Assets is responsible for the bags, and other companies pay to have their items included in them. The hope is that celebrities like the products and spread the word about them.
It costs a pretty penny to get products into the hands of celebrities. Jewelry designer Jan Lewis had her products in three Oscars gift bags over the years, and told Inc. in 2018 it cost $2,500 to get placement in the bags, not including providing the product itself.
Roberto Torres, president of Black & Denim Apparel Company, said in a 2013 report from Entrepreneur that the placement fee to get a product in a bag at the 2011 Oscars was $5,000. The price goes up if company representatives want a photo with an Oscar attendee holding their product. Companies also need to hire a PR firm specializing in product placement, according to Torres, which adds to costs.
The overall price of the gift bag, however, is no longer disclosed by Distinctive Assets.
“A great gift has nothing to do with the retail value,” Lash Fary, founder of Distinctive Assets, said in a 2018 news release, according to Forbes. “For years we have been breaking one of the cardinal rules of gift giving by disclosing the price tag. Instead, we are trying to start a new tradition by simply celebrating the fun and festive nature of this legendary gift bag.”
Typically, snacks, spa services, skin care products and vacations are included, but this year the 25 nominees will get hand-made cannabis-infused chocolate truffles, according to The Telegraph.
The Coda Signature Crescendo Collection 6-piece truffles each have 10 mg of THC, the main active ingredient in cannabis that gets people high. Recreational marijuana was legalized in California last year, so the gift item isn’t completely unexpected.
“This year, we are so excited about the legalization of cannabis in California, so we will be including a number of items in that category,” Fary told The Telegraph. “But there are quite a few regulations surrounding distribution of cannabis, so we are treading lightly this year as we dip our toe into those waters.
“Hopefully we are also introducing them to some new brands and experiences they wouldn’t otherwise know about.”
A full list of gifts in this year’s bag was published by The Independent. Some gifts include private phobia relief sessions, custom stained glass portraits, luxyry T-Shirts, a ZuZu Kim Couture Bow Tie, a poolside dinner for friends prepared by a celebrity chef, a three-day stay at a Malibu, California, wellness retreat, and personal training sessions.
The senior dog rescued by country singer Luke Bryan and his wife, Caroline Bryan, has died weeks after he was adopted.
“My heart is sad but full to post this,” she wrote. “Our sweet Prince Poochie has passed away. He lived 18 years and was loved by so many people. My kids especially loved to hear him snore when he slept! Thank you @proverbs1210animalrescue for giving our family the opportunity to love this sweet dog.”
Included in the post was a video of Poochie snoring in his doggie bed at the Bryans’ home, as well as images of the dog on the family’s farm.
The family adopted Poochie from Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue in Nashville, Tennessee, Nov. 9. The black and gray dog was brought to the shelter after his family became allergic to him, according to the shelter.
Senior dogs are routinely overlooked at shelters. Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue initially expected Poochie to be a forever hospice foster pet, like many of its rescues, but Luke Bryan and Caroline applied to adopt Poochie after seeing the dog on social media.
“While we would have loved for Poochie to have lived another 18 years, we are grateful for the time we gave him with our foster, Lacey Marie and with his adoptive family, the Bryans,” the rescue said in a Facebook post. “Poochie enjoyed his time with the Bryan family. He even felt well enough to stroll in their pastures and be a dog again. He sadly passed away a few days ago, but he was loved and passed in his sleep on a big comfy bed. He is now buried on the Bryan farm amid other beloved pets.”
Hugh Jackman is now a world record holder. And he’s not alone. Sir Patrick Stewart joins him in the honor.
Both Jackman and Stewart are being recognized for their roles in the “X-Men” franchise -- Jackman for Wolverine and Steward for Professor Charles Xavier, Guinness World Records announced in a release.
They both have played their roles for 16 years and 228 days both starring in the original “X-Men” movie and culminating in 2017’s “Logan.” They both are killed in “Logan.”
Jackman was surprised with the honor Wednesday on ITV’s “This Morning” by Craig Glendary, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records.
Jackman said he’s always wanted to be listed among the world records.
But his honor of being named the longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero will be featured in the Guinness World Records 2020.
And while Jackman is being celebrated as a Marvel superhero, his next role is as a song and dance man, as he goes on tour for his worldwide stage show “The Man. The Music. The Show” that kicks off in Glasgow on May 7, before heading to the the U.S. in June.
Nearly a month after its premiere at Sundance, HBO has released the trailer for “Finding Neverland,” the documentary in which two men allege Michael Jackson sexually abused them when they were boys.
In the two-part documentary, James Safechuck and Wade Robson speak about their experiences with the icon, whom they befriended when they were 10 and 7, respectively.
“He told me if they ever found out what we were doing, he and I would go to jail,” Robson said in the trailer.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robson and Safechuck graphically detail allegations of sexual abuse by Jackson. Still, the Dan Reed-directed documentary points out that both men have said under oath during Jackson’s first sexual abuse trial that the musician did not do anything inappropriate with them.
Jackson’s estate sent a 10-page letter to HBO CEO Richard Plepler Feb. 7, criticizing the network for “an admittedly one-sided, sensationalist program.” The estate also claimed the documentary gave Safechuck and Robson credibility despite their past testimony.
“Leaving Neverland” airs on HBO March 3 and 4. Watch the trailer below:
Manny Machado, one of major league baseball’s most coveted free agents this offseason, has agreed to a 10-year, $300 million contract with the San Diego Padres, multiple sources reported Tuesday.
Machado's deal is the biggest free-agent contract in baseball history, surpassing the the 10-year, $275 million deal Alex Rodriguez signed with the New York Yankees after the 2007 season, KNSD reported.
While Ron Fowler, the Padres’ executive chairman, told The San Diego Union-Tribune Tuesday morning that “we do not have a deal with any free agent,” two sources who did not want to be identified confirmed the agreement to the newspaper. The deal will allow the third baseman to opt out of the agreement after five years.
Machado is a four-time All-Star and has won two Gold Glove Awards. He made $16 million last season, ESPN reported, splitting time between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Baltimore Orioles,
Machado, 26, batted .297 in 2018 with 37 home runs and 107 RBI. In his seven-year career, Machado has a lifetime .282 average with 175 homers and 513 RBI. He has hit 30 or more home runs in each of the last four seasons.
Meghan Markle is just like any expectant mom, attending a baby shower in her honor just months before the baby’s expected to arrive.
But the Duchess of Sussex made her trip to New York City in as secret of a manner as possible for someone of her position, People magazine reported.
The shower was apparently thrown by a select group of Markle’s friends from before she was part of the royal family.
She was first seen having lunch with a friend in SoHo Saturday before she visited a children’s clothing store, US Magazine reported.
Her baby shower is reportedly scheduled for Tuesday, and it will be a private affair with only 15 guests, Vanity Fair reported.
Once she returns home to London, Markle and husband Prince Harry will embark on a trip to Morocco from Feb. 23 through 25 to “highlight the vital roles that girls’ education and youth empowerment are playing in, and shaping modern Morocco,” according to a release from Kensington Palace, US Magazine reported.
The latest royal baby, the eighth grandchild for Queen Elizabeth II, is due in either April or May, the “Today” show reported.
The Morocco trip is expected to be the last international trip for the Duchess before the baby is born, “Today” reported.
“America’s Got Talent: The Champions” crowned magician Shin Lim as winner Monday, beating out singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer.
Both had won their respective “AGT” seasons.
The entire season was taped several months ago. The voters were a 50-state “panel” of voters. Lim’s mesmerizing close-up card trick won them over.
Georgia singer Angelica Hale did not make the top five but was in the final 12.
“Being there was just amazing getting to be back,” 11-year-old Hale said in an interview before the finale aired. “The competition was very tough.” Howie Mandel had given her the Golden Buzzer, a moment she called “mind-blowing.”
Viral sensation Susan Boyle, who sang the same song she chose during her opening audition on “Britain’s Got Talent” a decade ago, also didn’t make the cut.
The top five featured only two singers, including runner-up Farmer, who had her puppet Petunia sing opera.
Ukrainian sand artist Kseniya Simonova came in third. Over-the-top Spanish singer Cristina Ramos landed fourth. And stand-up comic Preacher Lawson landed fifth.
The other seven were not actually “placed” in any order; they were just eliminated.
