Coming 2 America: How to watch, release date, cast – CNET

image

Coming 2 America is available starting March 5.

Prime Video

Coming 2 America is almost here and, despite doing that weird thing when you put a literal number inside the title, we're quite looking forward to it.

Coming to America came out in 1988, so it's been... 33 years since the original hit theatres? It's testament to its success and cultural impact that anyone is interested in a sequel. Will it be any good? It's difficult to say, but the return of most of the original cast bodes well. 

The plot? Prince Akeem discovers he has a son in the US and must return to New York City, find his child and groom him to become the heir to the throne of Zamunda. Hijinks, we can only assume, will ensue.

Here's a trailer for you to check out...

Okay, let's get stuck into the details.

Release date

Coming 2 America hits Prime Video on March 5. 

How to watch

Coming 2 America will be available to watch on Prime Video. Unlike other movies like Mulan or Raya and the Last Dragon, Coming 2 America will be free to watch for Prime Video subscribers.

Just sign up, or log-in and you should be good to go.

Worth noting: Prime Video offers a 30-day free trial. The subscription also comes with free two day shipping with Amazon and a host of other benefits, including access to Prime Music and some free stuff on Kindle.

Cast

As mentioned above, Coming 2 America really does have a stacked cast. 

  • Eddie Murphy
  • Arsenio Hall
  • Jermaine Fowler
  • Leslie Jones
  • Tracy Morgan
  • KiKi Layne
  • Shari Headley
  • Teyana Taylor
  • Wesley Snipes
  • James Earl Jones

As you might expect both Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are bringing back all the characters they played in the original Coming to America.

New Pokemon Snap gets a gorgeous new trailer – CNET

Nintendo announced New Pokemon Snap back in June 2020, and released footage of the game as recently as last month, but during Friday's Pokemon Presents livestream we were treated to a more extensive look at the game.

The game includes 200 Pokemon from eight generations of Pokemon games. It's been a long time coming for fans of the series -- the first Pokemon Snap hit stores in 1999 and fans have been clamouring for a sequel for almost 22 long years.

New Pokemon Snap hits stores on April 30 for Nintendo Switch.

Along with the trailer came the reveals of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, remakes of the 2007 Nintendo DS games, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus. The livestream came a day before the 25th anniversary of Pokemon Red and Green's original release in Japan, which is being marked with a virtual Post Malone concert

Thanks to US laws, sex workers are fighting to stay online – CNET

Editors' note: This story contains sexually explicit language and descriptions not suited for younger readers.

In August, sex worker Lucie Bee was having serious issues with her OnlyFans account. First the site slowed to a crawl, then she couldn't log on. 

Almost immediately, she freaked out. 

Click for more on the intersection of sex and technology.

Robert Rodriguez/CNET

A 30-year-old, high-profile escort with over 40,000 followers on Twitter, Bee sometimes incorporates cosplay into her sex work, once sewing a costume from scratch when she couldn't find just the right one to please a client. Living in Australia, Bee works as an escort, but around $2,000 of her monthly earnings come from $10 fees and tips from paid followers on OnlyFans, a subscription based social media platform that lets creators sell their original content -- photos, videos -- as well as host one-on-one interactions.

And Bee thought she was going to lose her OnlyFans income. All of it. Because when she was logged out of her account, she leapt to what she believed was the most obvious conclusion: She'd become the latest escort to be banned from the site.

To blame for Bee's tenuous position? FOSTA-SESTA, a one-two punch of House bills passed in 2018, 9,500 miles away.Until these laws change, escorts like Lucie Bee are entirely at their mercy.

Sex work is banned in every US state outside of Nevada, but if you are an escort in Australia -- where Bee works legally --  your online presence is bound by stringent US laws giving authorities the power to shut down any website that advertises escort services. In 2021, sites like OnlyFans, Twitter and Instagram will quickly remove any accounts for even the barest mention of escorting, without explanation.

These deletions pose a major problem for workers like Bee, who risks potential financial ruin over as a result of escort work which, where she lives, is perfectly legal and above board.

"At any moment, it can all be taken away," Bee says. 

FOSTA-SESTA

Granting federal authorities in the US the broad power to shut down any website where escort services are advertised, FOSTA-SESTA is a bill designed to curb all sex trafficking -- consensual or not -- on sites like Backstage. Despite good intentions, the bill's passing inspired broad debate online. The Electronic Frontier Foundation claimed it would "silence online speech," calling it a "dark day for the internet."

Lucie Bee lives in fear of losing her OnlyFans accounts, and accounts on other platforms like Twitter and Instagram.

Lucie Bee

But supporters of the bill, including Marian Hatcher -- a victim advocate and policy analyst -- believe freedom of speech is low on the priority list. "Our primary objective must be to end exploitation and prevent the harm that is inherent to those in the sex trade," she said in an interview with Feminist Current. 

Yet the mistake, escorts claim, is assuming all sex workers are being exploited. 

Some embrace the profession out of hardship, but many find the work empowering. Above all, sex work is work. FOSTA-SESTA is designed to protect victims involved in non-consensual trafficking, but overlooks those like Bee involved in consensual, legal sex work.

Bee wishes more people understood exactly how escorting works. Sex work isn't always about sex, she says. She's built a community of clients who will regularly tune in to watch her livestream video games on Twitch. "The guys all talk to each other," she laughs.

"The thing I wish people got about sex work is that sometimes it can be incredibly boring," Bee says. "But sometimes it can be sweet."

But sex work can also be dangerous. Some -- like Alexandra Yelderman, from the DC-based Human Trafficking Legal Center -- believe FOSTA-SESTA works against sex workers' safety. Removing online advertising of sex work services, Yelderman says, makes it incredibly difficult for law enforcement to track and recover potential victims of trafficking.

FOSTA-SESTA's passing had a dramatic impact on the internet. Major platforms have been running scared. Tumblr was perhaps the most high-profile casualty. Tumblr removed all pornography in December 2018 -- most believe in response to FOSTA-SESTA. As a result its audience went into terminal decline and never really recovered.

But sex workers took the biggest hit.

In 2021, escorts aren't just fighting against the stigma of sex work. They're fighting for their right to be online.

'You don't get told why'

"FOSTA-SESTA fucked the entire industry," says Jenna Love. Love is an escort working out of the Blue Mountains in Australia who creates and sells her own pornography.

"You go to log in one day and you can't. That's it. You don't get told why. In Australia, we're working legally. We pay a lot of taxes."

But that doesn't matter, says Love. Because sites like OnlyFans are hosted in the US, they are subject to its laws. 

In a statement, OnlyFans confirmed promotion of escort services is against its terms of service and that "immediate action" could be taken against accounts that advertise escort services. Emily van der Nagel, who co-wrote the book Sex and Social Media with Katrin Tiidenberg, calls the process the "deplatformisation of sex."

"The way sex workers are using technology, constantly negotiating with those platforms makes their selves, work and livelihoods even more precarious," van der Nagel says. "This is a huge problem."

As a result of social stigma and discrimination, sex workers are already placed in difficult situations both financially and physically, says Van der Nagel. FOSTA-SESTA exacerbates that.

The tension

"FOSTA-SESTA fucked the entire industry," says Jenna Love.

OnlyFans is very much in the midst of its moment.

"OnlyFans has become the Tupperware or Kleenex of porn platforms," Jenna Love says. "But it's not the only option."

Love is absolutely correct. Many performers sell pornography using platforms like Patreon, ManyVids and even Snapchat but, in 2021, none of these alternatives offer the reach and influence of OnlyFans.  The site had 90 million users and over 1 million content creators, up from 120,000 in 2019, as of December, according to the New York Times.

A "social platform revolutionizing creator and fan connections," OnlyFans launched four years ago, but in January 2020 garnered mainstream attention when Kaylen Ward -- aka the Naked Philanthropist -- raised around $1 million dollars in relief for Australian bushfires by selling nudes on the service. 

As a sex worker living in Australia, Love knows she's losing money by not having a presence on the site, but has issues with how the site operates. OnlyFans is "making bank" on the back of sex workers, she says, but treats them with disrespect.

There's a massive tension, she says, between how OnlyFans describes itself and what it actually is. OnlyFans, she explains, doesn't think of itself as a porn platform and isn't necessarily friendly to the clientele that earns it a significant chunk of its revenue.

In 2020, OnlyFans went mainstream. Beyonce name-dropped it on a song with Megan Thee Stallion. Even celebrities like Cardi B are getting onboard, charging users for monthly subscription fees for content like fan Q&As and behind the scenes footage of video shoots.

But sex workers, believes Love, are getting left behind. "Celebrities and instagram influencers have a grand old time on OnlyFans. But those of us, for whom this is actually our job, get booted off."

Money and power

Bella Thorne caused controversy when she launched an OnlyFans account last year.

Enter Bella Thorne.

A 22-year-old former Disney star with 24 million followers on Instagram, Thorne broke OnlyFans records when she created an account in August last year. After misleading subscribers into purchasing a "nude" photo for $200 (which turned out not to be a nude), Thorne made $1 million in a single day, but left a trail of destruction in her wake.

As a result of her actions, OnlyFans was overwhelmed with refund demands. Thorne's representatives didn't respond to a request for comment.

Weeks afterward, OnlyFans limited the amount content creators  could charge for "exclusive" content to $50 and changed its payments from weekly to monthly.

Sex workers weren't happy. The payment shift from weekly to monthly was one thing, but for many OnlyFans creators, the ability to charge extra for exclusive content was a major source of income. It functioned as an additional paywall. In addition OnlyFans put caps on the tips system, which also limited the amount creators could make from their subscriber base. All up, the changes dramatically reduced the amount creators could make from the service.

The case for OnlyFans

Bee hadn't been banned from OnlyFans. She was eventually able to get back online and access her earnings, but it was a stark reminder of how vulnerable she was. And how quickly she could lose it all.

"I know it sounds dramatic," she remembers, "but I felt like I was gonna die."

Bee scours her OnlyFans account constantly, fearful a subscriber might ask for escort services in a direct message. Fearful that an old Twitter account, linked to her OnlyFans, might mention that she does escort work on the side.

"I'm always so panicked I'm going to wake up one morning and it'll all be gone," she explains.

"To exist online is really tough," adds Jenna Love. Both Love and Bee have dummy accounts on multiple social media platforms, in case they get removed for the wrong kind of tweet or for a photograph that's too revealing. This is common practice for anyone involved in sex work.

Despite arguments that the presence of OnlyFans is helping destigmatize sex work, Love believes its move to the mainstream has only made things worse.

Van der Nagel believes OnlyFans could really help ease the stigma attached to sex work.

Emily van der Nagel

"[OnlyFans] destigmatized the hot chick who wants to sell some nudes. It's 'you go girl, make your money.' But those of us who are actually sex workers are still thought of as filthy whores."

Van der Nagel believes OnlyFans -- given its influence -- could properly destigmatise sex work, by creating a charter that explicitly laid out its support for those involved.

"If OnlyFans came out and said, 'We're in support of sex work', that could be a meaningful step to taking the shame out of sex work as a profession. "They're really missing an opportunity to say 'sex is a normal part of a healthy adult life.'"

Charter or no charter, Love still wants no part of OnlyFans. She says the site has "spent years profiting from sex workers" with zero acknowledgement. She'd rather support platforms she believes are more supportive of sex workers, like AVNStars or JustFor.Fans.

Bee feels like she has to be more pragmatic. She's built a loyal community on OnlyFans. Many of her followers are subscribed to multiple creators on the site and would be reluctant to sign up for another service.

"I can't presume they will be loyal and follow me wherever I go," she says. "You don't wanna bite the hand that feeds you."

Tom and Jerry on HBO Max: How to watch, release date, cast – CNET

maxresdefault-4

Time for some old-fashioned mouse on cat violence.

Warner Bros.

If you, like me, spent much of your formative years watching Tom and Jerry cartoons, you might be keen to hear that a brand-new, feature-length Tom and Jerry movie is now available on HBO Max

But this isn't necessarily the Tom and Jerry you remember. In the spirit of movies such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Space Jam, this new flick places Tom and Jerry in the real world. 

The movie features quite the live-action cast -- Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena and Ken Jeong all appear. Check out the trailer below for a look...

It might end up being worth a watch, especially because the movie is "free" for HBO Max subscribers. That's right: In the spirit of recent releases like Mulan and Wonder Woman 1984, Tom and Jerry is available from day one to stream in your home.

How to watch

Tom and Jerry is available to watch now on HBO Max.

Right now, HBO Max costs $15 a month. When Disney's live-action Mulan came to Disney Plus in September, subscribers had to pay an extra $30 for Mulan (until Dec. 4, when it became free for all subscribers). Tom and Jerry doesn't require any extra charges. Just tune in to HBO Max as you normally would, and you'll be able to watch.

Outside the US? Consider a VPN: See the best VPNs ranked by CNET editors

When will it be available?

Tom and Jerry went live on HBO Max on Friday, Feb. 26. Note, however, that it will only be available for about 31 days. 

Is there a free trial?

Currently HBO Max doesn't provide free trials. That stopped around the time it allowed users to stream Wonder Woman 1984 as part of its service.

But if you're not currently a member of HBO Max you might consider signing up? We have a lengthy explainer on the service, which has a fat library of other movies and programs you could check out, including Lovecraft Country, Rick and Morty, the Studio Ghibli movies and more.

UFC 259 Blachowicz vs. Adesanya: Start time, press conference, how to watch or stream online and full fight card – CNET

gettyimages-1276894587

Israel Adesanya is looking for his second UFC title.

Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images

Forget Conor McGregor, forget Usman vs. Burns -- UFC 259 is the card of cards. This is the one you should be excited about. Three title fights. Three. And not just any title fights, extremely good ones.

The main event is particularly exciting. The UFC middleweight champ  (and mega-star in-waiting) Israel Adesanya moves up a weight class to become the UFC's latest "champ-champ." He faces off against the recently crowned UFC light heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz. 

Blachowicz is a monstrous hitter and Adesanya might be the best pure striker in the UFC. This matador-bull match-up is sure to have everyone on the edge of their seats for as long as it lasts.

But we also get to see the consensus best female fighter of all-time Amanda Nunes defend her featherweight crown against Australian star Megan Anderson. Outside of a rematch with Cris Cyborg, this is probably the biggest women's UFC fight out there right now. Can't wait for that one.

We also get a title fight in perhaps the most stacked division in UFC: Bantamweight. Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling is a battle between most likely the two best bantamweights in the world right now. Can't wait to see how this one plays out.

Press Conference

He's no Conor McGregor, but Israel Adesanya has his own style of charisma and tends to do great in press conferences. Thankfully, the UFC is running one ahead of UFC 259. 

Tune into the UFC's YouTube page to watch live. We'll embed the video here in this very post closer to the time.

It kicks off March 4 at 5pm EST. That's 2pm PST on the west coast.

For Australians that's March 5 at 9am.

For folks in the UK that's 10pm on March 4.

How to watch UFC 259

This year the UFC entered into a new partnership with ESPN. That's great news for the UFC and the expansion of the sport of MMA, but bad news for consumer choice. Especially if you're one of the UFC fans who want to watch UFC live in the US.

In the US, if you want to know how to watch UFC 259, you'll only find the fight night on PPV through ESPN Plus. The cost structure is a bit confusing, but here are the options to watch UFC on ESPN, according to ESPN's site:

  • Existing yearly ESPN Plus subscribers can order the upcoming UFC fight for $70
  • Existing monthly ESPN Plus subscribers will be able to either upgrade to an annual plan and buy UFC PPV for $85 or purchase the ability to watch the UFC event on PPV for $70 by itself.
  • New ESPN Plus subscribers can buy a bundle of one UFC PPV event (streaming in HD) and an ESPN Plus annual recurring subscription for $90. This is a decent deal. The previous bundle gave a saving of 25% but this new bundle is a 35% saving. The ESPN Plus annual ESPN subscription will auto-renew after one year, at the price of an ESPN Plus annual subscription at the time of auto-renewal.

You can do all of the above at the link below.

MMA fans in the UK can watch UFC 259 exclusively through BT Sport. There are more options if you live in Australia. You can watch UFC 259 through Main Event on Foxtel. You can also watch on the UFC website or using its app. You can even order using your PlayStation or using the UFC app on your Xbox.

Adam Sandler brings back Happy Gilmore for one last swing – CNET

happygilmore-barker-1320

RIP Bob Barker.

Universal

Happy Gilmore is 25 years old today. That's a terrifying sentence to write.

The movie, which starred Adam Sandler as a violent (in a nice way) ice hockey player turned golfer, is an all-time comedy classic and for people of a certain generation (my generation) it's one of the most quotable movies ever made. 

In Happy Gilmore, Happy's trademark is his golf swing. More like a slapshot, Happy takes a short of stutter-step and just full on smacks the ball with his driver.

Anyone who lifted a golf club in the late 90s has attempted this swing at least once. Including me.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Happy Gilmore, Adam Sandler brought back Happy Gilmore for one last swing.

Incredibly Shooter McGavin (as played by Christopher McDonald) responded.

He eats pieces of shit like you for breakfast.
