If you have’t heard about the “Running Man Challenge” … ummmm where you been? The viral dance challenge started by University of Maryland Basketball players Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley has taken over social media and infiltrated locker rooms across the country with teams doing the hilarious dance to Ghost Town DJs 1996 hit single “My Boo”.

The two b-balling sophomores created the video a little over a week ago, issued the challenge “Who wants to battle?” and teams like Villanova, UCONN, Louisville and throngs of others responded.

Oh yeahh!!! 😂😂😂😂 wassup wit it ? @jaybriddle_1 add my snap: jnickkk

But now it’s not just collegiate players doing the running man. Artists from Chris Brown to Chance the Rapper and NBA stars like Steph Curry and Justise Winslow have gotten in on the challenge. And then of course Jermaine Dupri is lending his support, since after all he did produce the song, that has now returned to the Billboard charts at #6.

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.
