In the hours leading up to Christmas on Sunday, elves loaded Santa’s sleigh with gifts. Google And then on the day of Christmas Eve, Monday, Santa dropped gifts down a chimney.  Google Twas the doodle before Christmas and all through the ‘net, Google’s elves were a-stirring to get us all set.As gift-givers shifted from shopping to wrapping, the holiday turkey began to thaw, and advent calendars got down to their last unopened window, Sunday’s Google Doodle showed us the man of the hour getting ready for his annual mission around the world. The first of several lightly animated holiday doodles showed a trio of elves flinging presents into Santa’s sleigh as the reindeer awaited clearance for takeoff.That image reached many countries in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Greeting folks in the UK, Italy and sub-Saharan Africa was a static, non-Santa illustration, filled with items including tree branches and flowers, cook pot and teakettle, a lone reindeer and a brace of birds (apparently not turtle doves, though).On Monday, Christmas Eve, Google offered a day-two Santa-themed doodle with an illustration of Santa Claus dropping gifts down a chimney in a snowy suburban landscape. The second-day image for the southern hemisphere shows Santa dropping gifts but not through chimneys. And the image for the UK, Italy and sub-Saharan Africa was a new, non-Santa holiday illustration.Google is also ready with a Christmas Day doodle, for both hemispheres, featuring Santa and his team napping after their big night. Google has been decorating its homepage with near-daily doodles for 20 years, a tradition that started with a simple line drawing to mark an outing to the Burning Man festival by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Since then, the whimsical and sometimes interactive illustrations have celebrated everything from poets to Pac-Man and from Halloween to Bastille Day.

It Chapter 2 trailer a bloody scary way to start ComicCon

first_img 0 It Chapter 2 is the second part of 2017’s blockbuster movie It based on Stephen King’s 1986 best-seller. “[The film is] still about that friendship those kids in chapter one developed and how they really became each other’s best friends to fight this evil,” Mustafa told CNET. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s horrifying, but it’s still touching.” postercropped Warner Bros. A new poster also hit Wednesday, showing a pair of ominous yellow clown eyes staring out from a face covered in white makeup. Those crimson-red slashes definitely can’t mean anything good. Chastain has said the film features one of the bloodiest scenes of any horror film, ever.  62 Photos Rick and Morty Comic-Con exclusive toy unboxing It Chapter 2 opens on Sept. 5 in Australia and on Sept. 6 in the US and UK.   6:21 Share your voice Originally published July 18, 1:42 a.m. PT. Update, 9:22 a.m. PT: Adds link to new trailer that just appeared online.  The new trailer for It Chapter 2 debuted to audiences at Comic-Con a day before it posted online. New Line Cinema Pennywise the evil clown is back, and creepy as ever. A trailer for It Chapter 2 debuted Wednesday night at San Diego Comic-Con ahead of its debut online Thursday, and if murderous clowns make you nervous, this footage won’t do anything to ease your terror. The It Chapter 2 trailer quickly reveals that 27 years after the first movie, most of the members of the Losers’ Club have somehow forgotten their horrific experiences after moving out of Derry, Maine, as adults.”Something happens to you when you leave this town,” Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) says. But since he didn’t leave, he remembers everything. The final clip appears to take place later in the film, and as such I won’t be revealing much about it. The Losers return to the old house seen at the end of the 2017 It film. Muschietti told the audience before airing the clip that the house is only visible to children, and apparently the Losers’ Club. This sequence leads to a horrifying reveal. Now playing: Watch this: Stephen King gave Isaiah Mustafa a new take on life … and death Everything you need to know about horror film It Chapter 2 It Chapter 2 Comic-Con trailer reveals what the Losers… No clowning around here. @jes_chastain was in a “kiddie pool filled with blood” on the set of #ITChapter2. #SDCC pic.twitter.com/sZ8eaFdfiV— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) July 18, 2019 The Losers know how to make an entrance. #ItChapter2 is taking over #SDCC. 🤡 pic.twitter.com/OgxLK8UE6j— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) July 18, 2019 Now playing: Watch this: Comic-Con Mike tells his friends — including Bill (James McAvoy), Beverly (Jessica Chastain), Richie (Bill Hader), Ben (Jay Ryan) and Eddie (James Ransone) — that Pennywise the Clown (Bill Skarsgård) wasn’t stopped back when the friends with Stanley (Andy Bean) last battled it.In the trailer, McAvoy runs through a funhouse to rescue a child who’s encountered the bloodthirsty clown. We also see sewers and lots of red balloons, which Pennywise clutches while flying through the air. We also see the reappearance of Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) who is seen telling Beverly, “I died.”In addition to dealing with creepy kids, Beverly will also be covered in fake blood for at least a part of the film. So much blood Chastain said that she was thrilled to learn about the sequence from director Andy Muschietti. “Let’s make Carrie on steroids,” was her reaction, she told the audience at the Warner Bros. ScareDiego event where the trailer and three clips were shown. Tags The very best cosplay we saw at Comic-Con 2019 Audiences were shown three clips from It Chapter 2, which I’ll only lightly describe to avoid getting too into spoilers. The first two expand on sequences seen in the trailer.The first of the clips showed the reunion of the Losers’ Club as adults. It’s clear many of the friends haven’t stayed in close touch, zinging each other over who may or may not have gotten married. As the sequence continues, each character begins to remember their childhood, including the horrors of Pennywise.The second clip shows Bill running through a carnival in search of an unnamed child who is apparently being hunted by It.  Post a comment TV and Movies 2:28 More It Chapter 2last_img read more

Parekh will be receiving Rs 16.2 crore annually, according to the company postal ballot filed in Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).Parekh’s salary is way short of what Vishal Sikka drew in fiscal 2017. In the last one year Sikka earned Rs 45.1 crore before he quit in August after a yearlong battle between co-founders and management.The company has also given the details of severance pay terms; as severance pay, Parekh will be getting half his compensation of the previous 12 months and vesting of outstanding stock options till that period.This is in line with the fundamental ideas set forth by the co-founders of the IT major. N R Narayana Murthy had flagged the issue of higher salaries the top executives were getting.Another co-founder, now the non-executive chairman, Nandan Nilekani had also said earlier that he would like see a low profile senior executive to execute a vision of focused delivery for customers.According to the company’s postal ballot, Parekh will get an annual fixed salary of Rs 65 lakh and variable pay of Rs 97.5 lakh that would be compensated based on achieving metrics set by the company. The Bengaluru-based IT exporter has also offered stock options worth Rs 97.5 lakh that would be vested over two years.With Parekh taking over as the head of India’s second largest software exporter, interim CEO Pravin Rao has been redesignated as chief operating officer (COO).On January 2, Parekh was inducted in a low-key manner with hardly any of the top executives or founders present in company’s Bengaluru headquarter.Speaking to employees in video call, the new CEO said that he is delighted to lead the company and excited to lead the company at a time when technology is changing at a fast and disruptive pace.last_img read more
