Maurice Jones-Drew Facing Charges



Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is now running from more than just the defense. The NFL star could be charged with battery after allegedly brawling with a security guard at the Conch House restaurant in St. Augustine, FL Sunday night.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Jones-Drew intentionally punched a security guard, knocking him out, after the guard put one of his friends in a headlock. In the report, witnesses say the guard was telling the football star’s friend to stop touching a young female when the fight ensued.

HipHollywood spoke with one of the managers at the Conch House Restaurant who said they could not comment, but did confirm the incident took place during their Reggae Sunday Memorial Day Weekend Bash this past weekend. They also said no one from the restaurant has spoken out about the incident, and any claims from other outlets are false.

The Jacksonville Jaguars also tell us in a statement that they are “aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more information”, but can not comment further due to legal concerns.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
