The controversial Aaliyah biopic, which the R&B singer’s family vowed to try and stop, has been given an official release date.

Lifetime announced this morning that Aaliyah: Princess of R&B will air Saturday, November 15. The film, which was originally slated to star Zendaya Coleman, has since replaced the young actress with Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp. Wendy Williams recently signed on as the made-for-TV movie’s executive producer.

As Derek Jeter prepares to bid farewell to his baseball career, numerous brands have gone out of their way to pay tribute to the lifetime Yankee.

The first of many moving tributes to the team’s legendary captain was a Jordan brand advertisement that called for “#Re2Pect.” Now, with his days in the Bronx numbered, Gatorade has released the tribute to end all tributes.

The 90-second ad follows the 40-year-old as he surprises fans throughout the city while making his way to Yankee Stadium. Throughout the ad, Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” plays, because what’s more New York than Sinatra?

X-Men is getting a spinoff and it’s coming sooner than you think.

Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Comics have decided to move forward with Deadpool. The studio announced plans to release the film in February 2016.

The movie will be directed by Tim Miller and is said to be starring Ryan Reynolds, though no deal has been set.

Deadpool, aka Wade Wilson, is a beloved character to Marvel fans. He’s a chatty mercenary who boasts a number of powers, including the ability to heal quickly. Reynolds played Wilson in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with Scott Adkins playing the post-transformation version of the character.
