Tom Brady Is Not A Member Of The Brady Bunch, And Other Facts You Should Probably Know Before The Super Bowl

The big game always brings out the once-a-year footy fans.

Be on your feet, because Monday is Super Bowl day in Australia, and that means you’re going to encounter a whole lot of people pretending to know American football.

So you don’t sound like a complete twat, you can get some practice in by catching the real-life live gridiron game on a barge at Sydney’s Darling Harbour this Sunday from 3pm, hosted by Kayo, who’s also hosting the actual Super Bowl on Monday.

Now, we all know that the Super Bowl half-time entertainment is epic – and that Janet Jackson took it next-level with “Nipplegate” in 2004.

This year it’s Maroon 5’s turn to turn it on, or completely blow up Twitter with rants.

As for the game, it’s between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.

You’re going to hear a lot about one player in particular – Tom Brady. No relation to Greg, Peter or Bobby, or Marcia, Jan or Cindy for that matter.

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

Tom Brady is quarterback for the Patriots, husband of supermodel Gisele Bündchen, and largely described as a GOAT, probably for a combination of the two.

He has five Super Bowl rings in his collection already. That’s some serious bling.

He’s also forever linked with “Deflategate”, with allegations that he ordered the deliberate deflating of footballs in the 2014-15 playoffs. A big no-no in American football.

So get pumped up, and grab plenty of snacks. It’s time to play.

'No Time To Die' Theme Song May Feature Big Clues About Daniel Craig's Final 007 Movie

Did you notice these?

We’re only a few weeks from the release of Daniel Craig’s final James Bond film No Time To Die, but we got our first feel for the film with Billie Eilish’s theme for the film by the same name.

Fans are very curious about what will happen to Bond, with many believing the agent will die in the film, but Eilish’s song seems to offer some big clues about a major plot point in the film.

There are plenty of Bond themes that have very little to do with the movie and are more bout the characters, for example, the theme for Goldfinger.

But others directly address themes from the movie, like Adele’s Skyfall song – and it seems as though Billie’s song for No Time To Die falls into the same category.

The haunting tune doesn’t give us much hope for Bond with the lyrics centring on a tragic betrayal. Not just any betrayal, however, in this case, it comes from someone you love.

The first verse is about a meaningful relationship ending badly:

“I should have known
I’d leave alone
Just goes to show
That the blood you bleed is just the blood you owe
We were a pair
But I saw you there
Too much to bear”

As we near the chorus, Eilish sings about being caught off guard:

“You were my life, but life is far away from fair
Was I stupid to love you?
Was I reckless to help?
Was it obvious to everybody else?”

Then, the chorus continues on the theme of betrayal:

“That I’d fallen for a lie
You were never on my side
Fool me once, fool me twice
Are you death or paradise?
Now you’ll never see me cry
There’s just no time to die”

Thanks to the trailer, fans believe Daniel Craig’s Bond will be betrayed by Madeleine Swan, his love interest from Spectre.

The new No Time To Die trailer featuring Eilish’s song sees Bond burning a note featuring the words “Forgive me.”

Another theory is that Madeleine won’t survive the film because Bond is seen in front of what appears to be a mausoleum.

No Time To Die is out in cinemas on 8 April.

Harrison Ford Reveals The Toughest Part About Returning To His Iconic Roles

Makes sense!

Harrison Ford has confirmed he will be returning as Indiana Jones for a fifth movie in the franchise, revealing he begins work on the movie in the coming months.

According to WTHR, 77-year-old appeared in an interview on CBS’ Sunday Morning Show and was asked about the toughest part about returning to his iconic roles and the actor, who has reprised his role as Han Solo in recent years, joked, “Trying not to look funny running around in tight pants and high boots.”

“I’ll try and give you a more appropriate answer,” he added. “Considering that I’m going to start doing Indiana Jones in about two months.”

He went on to say, “I’m always delighted to come back to these characters. If we have the opportunity to make another, it’s because people have enjoyed them.”

“I feel obliged to make sure our efforts are as ambitious as they were when we started. You have a sense of responsibility to your customers.”

According to CinemaBlend, he also dropped some hints about the film, “I’m not going to share the story with you because that doesn’t seem like a good idea. But we’ll see new developments in his life, his relationship. We’ll see part of his history resolved.”

The last Indiana Jones film, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008 and was largely considered a flop.

A question on many people’s minds is whether or not Shia LaBeouf will reprise his role as Mutt from the last movie. However, writer David Koepp said in 2018 that LaBeouf’s character isn’t expected to return.

The publication also reports that Koepp said in 2019, “We’ve got a good idea this time.”

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kelly has also confirmed Indiana Jones 5 will be a continuation of the story and not a reboot and Ford has previously said that when he is gone, the character will not be up for grabs.

Steven Spielberg will direct Indiana Jones 5 after finishing work on his remake of West Side Story.
