John Boyega dubs Star Wars: The Last Jedi very messy

  John Boyega dubs Star Wars: The Last Jedi very messy John Boyega has said 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is "very messy" but explores war in a different way to other films in the hit sci-fi franchise.John Boyega claims 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is an exploration of war and the effects it has on those involved.

Ford is suing John Cena for selling his 2017 GT supercar. The contract, designed to discourage opportunistic buyers from driving up GT values by quickly reselling the in-demand vehicle for a profit, stipulates that new Ford GTs cannot be resold for two years.

And this contract explicitly prohibited Cena from reselling for 24 months, designating Cena took delivery of the car on September 23, 2017 , yet Ford learned that he sold it on October 20 It would seem, to me, that suing John Cena would damage the brand more than John Cena selling a Ford GT .

Back when deliveries of the new Ford GT started, professional wrestler John Cena was pictured with an example of the supercar. No one was quite 100 percent sure that was his car because in the footage, which was filmed at a Ford dealership, he seemed to deliberately mention 'a' Ford GT instead of calling it his. 

Well, it turns out our sixth-sense observation had all the precision of a Mustang leaving a crowded car show. It was Cena’s car – we know because apparently he’s already sold it and now Ford is allegedly taking him to court.

Apparently when a car company builds a very limited-run machine and hand-picks people from a long list of applicants to get one, it’s generally good taste to keep it for a while.

Wrestler John Cena was one of the 500 lucky ones who got one, but he quickly sold the car afterwards. Per the lawsuit, Ford made the rules on reselling the 2017 GT extra clear to its buyers at numerous times during the purchase process.

In this case, it seems Cena was also contractually obligated to keep the Ford GT for two years before selling. WXYZ TV in Detroit has reported that the lawsuit initiated by Ford claims Cena sold the car for a 'large profit from the unauthorised resale flip…' and that Ford 'suffered additional damages and losses…'.

Among those losses claimed in the suit are brand value, ambassador activity and customer goodwill.

Of course, the big question people probably have now is, why did he sell it? We’ve seen his video series where he proclaims to be a car geek, and he sure seemed excited over the new GT. The report says he sold the car for cash to pay expenses, but wouldn’t it make more sense to sell other expensive cars in his notable fleet – ones that he wasn’t contractually obligated to keep?

The cars value increases when “previously owned by John Cena ” is attached. Doug explains: "Here's Why the 2017 Ford GT Is Worth 0,000". I'm not a car person, but it's still pretty interesting what goes into these things, and what people look for.

In the lawsuit, Ford makes several mentions of Cena reaping a large profit on the sale, but that number is never disclosed. Could he have just been too tempted by an offer he couldn’t refuse?

It better have been a seriously big payout, because Ford is now seeking £370,000 for Cena’s breach-of-contract.

John Legend helping jailed parents communicate with their children .
John Legend is working with TV bosses behind educational show Sesame Street to help incarcerated parents stay in touch with their kids over the holidays. The All of Me hitmaker launched the FREEAMERICA campaign in 2015 and he has now put together a programme with Sesame Street to help kids "communicate with their parents who are away." "We incarcerate so many people, and a lot of times we forget about their kids that are left behind and how it feels for them to be without parents," he tells People magazine. "The emotional effect that it has on them, the financial effect it has on their families as well - I think a lot of times we forget about that toll of incarcerating so many people. (We're) trying to bridge that gap so there's stronger communication between the kids and their parents." Last month (Nov17), Legend invited five children to come to the set of the show and talk to characters about their jailed parents. John also met with the students to speak to them, and the videos will be sent to the incarcerated parents. Legend has been passionate about criminal justice reform and incarceration rates in the U.S., but he has become more concerned with the issues after becoming a father. "I think it's just even more emotionally resonating now that I have a daughter, in thinking about what the impact of just me going on tour has on her, and how she misses me when I'm gone for a few weeks," he says. "For kids that would have to deal with that for multiple years and not be able to contact their parents in the way that we can - you just can't imagine how hard it is.
