Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law returns as his friend and colleague, Dr. John Watson, in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows." There is a new criminal mastermind at large-Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris)-and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may give him an advantage over the renowned detective. Holmes' investigation into Moriarty's plot becomes more dangerous as it leads him and Watson out of London to France, Germany and finally Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead, and moving perilously close to completing his ominous plan. If he succeeds, it will not only bring him immense wealth and power but alter the course of history.

Dwayne Wade has played his final game at the American Airlines Arena and was given a proper send off. Barack Obama put ample respect on the the star shooting guard’s name.
As spotted on Hot New Hip Hop the former POTUS was of many to commend Wade on his 16 years in the NBA. The savvy politician sent his respect and regards via a pre-taped video that was played in front of the sold out crowd on Tuesday, April 9 when the Heat played the Philadelphia 76ers. As expected, Barack’s message was delivered with love, admiration and his signature approach to humor.
“D-Wade! Congratulations on a great run. Now, I know what you’re going through, because saying goodbye to a career that you love is never easy. I’ve been there. In my case though, I didn’t really have a choice. My knees were shot so I had to give up basketball forever” he joked.
Barack also highlighted Dwayne’s indelible integrity during the second portion of the tribute. “You, on the other hand, look like you’re still hooping out there, and I imagine it’s a little tougher when you just completed one of the greatest careers in NBA history. For 16 years you’ve given us high-wire dunks, big shots in big moments, more blocks than any guard in history, you were willing to sacrifice your body in the lane and sometimes sacrifice your ego in pursuit of a title. Whenever you got knocked down you always showed us how to get back up. You showed some Chicago spirit in you, and you did us proud” he added.
The night prior a formal party was hosted in his honor with several a-list of celebrities in the house. In true Miami fashion the likes of Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Chris Bosh, Fat Joe, Erik Spoelstra and Pat Riley partied in all white. You can view Barack’s touching video message below.

Count John Varvatos as among the fans of “Game of Thrones.”
The designer has teamed with the show’s creator, HBO, on an exclusive men’s capsule collection that will launch on Thursday. This marks the first time Varvatos has collaborated with a television series and is the only luxury fashion collaboration for the “Game of Thrones” final season.
The 11-piece collection features hand-dyed leather outerwear, a cross-over henley, pants, a textured messenger bag and graphic prints on spray-dyed Ts. Signature details from the series are found throughout the collection, including outerwear pieces with the Iron Throne motif printed on the inside of a jacket. Prices range from $ 98 for a graphic T-shirt to $ 2,698 for the hand-dyed leather jacket.
A graphic T-shirt from the capsule includes references to the show.
“From the very first episode, I have been inspired by the incredible costumes in ‘Game of Thrones,’” Varvatos said. “To have this opportunity to collaborate is a dream come true.”
“As we prepare for the final season of ‘Game of Thrones,’ we wanted to celebrate with an incredible collaboration for a clothing line inspired by the show,” said Jeff Peters, vice president of licensing and retail for HBO. “John Varvatos has delivered a stunning collection of

With Game of Thrones coming back for an eighth and final season, anticipation for the series has reached a fever pitch. With the premiere debuting in April, Adidas has joined up with HBO to put out a collection of GoT-themed Ultra Boosts.
Taking inspiration from some of the most notable characters and families from the series, the Ultra Boost collection has six different models, all designed with unique colorways and features. Each of the varieties has a quote on the back of the shoe that relates to the specific family, including “Winter Is Here” for the White Walker collection. The designs also include custom insoles with the Game of Thrones logo and a spot under each shoe tongue with a family sigil or quote related to the model.
Game of Thrones will debut on April 14. The Game Of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost doesn’t yet have an official release date, but the collection will likely be available around the time of the premiere.
The only valid comparison to President Trump, is President Hillary

Dems just don’t want the credit to go to the President

He’s put ALL his political capital on the line for this
Result will be a substantial improvement

USA Today bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith takes you into the world of his acclaimed novel Dead Money with a new series about a group of retired Las Vegas Police detectives playing poker and solving cold cases. Retired Detective Bayard Lott hosts the weekly poker games at his home. The group calls themselves the Cold Poker Gang. And they succeed at closing old cases. Lott's very first homicide case as a brand-new detective had gone cold more than twenty years earlier. But retired Reno detective Julia Rogers, new to the Cold Poker Gang, suggests they look at that case again for personal reasons. From that simple suggestion spins one of the strangest and most complicated murder mystery puzzles the gang has ever seen. Read the whole riveting series!

It wasn’t that Harington didn’t have confidence in all the hard work the cast and crew put into Season 7, quite the opposite in fact. But after taking a year off from the awards due to eligibility issues in 2017, the actor thought the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences might not have the show in the front of their minds when it was time to give the awards out. That idea turned out to be all for naught: Game of Thrones ended up winning the award for Outstanding Drama series for the third time.
“It was exciting to be at the Emmy Awards again and to win, because we weren’t expecting to a win this time,” Harington told Men’s Journal. “We were away for a while, and I wasn’t even sure we’d get nominated, which in some ways sounds mad. But we missed a year and sometimes they’ll wait for a final season to give the awards. I thought Season 7 was brilliant, and I’m glad they recognized that.”
For as much as he’s sad that the series is ending after Season 8, Harington said that he’s thankful and lucky to have been part of the show for so long. Being on the show has catapulted Harington into stardom, and even helped him meet his wife, Rose Leslie, who played the character Ygritte on the series. The two married at Wardhill Castle in Scotland during the Summer of 2018.
“The whole experience has been incredible,” Harington says. “I’ve felt very fortunate to work with so many amazing people.”
Harington’s role as Jon Snow has also helped make him a global star, which is one reason why Dolce & Gabbana teamed up with the actor to make him the face of their men’s fragrances. The most recent release is The One Grey (available at Macy’s and Macys.com), a new fragrance that has bold and elegant smell, combining the scents of cardamom, vetiver, as well as hints of grapefruit, warm tobacco, and grey woods.
Harington spoke with Men’s Journalfollowing the Emmy Awards and spoke about his experiences filming in 40-degrees below zero in Iceland, working with Dolce & Gabbana, and what he kept from the Game of Thrones set.
We know you can’t tell us any spoilers about the final season of Game of Thrones, or HBO will swoop in and kidnap us. But generally, what are you excited about and for fans to see of Season 8?
This is going to be so boring, but it’s a minefield to say anything. Even in the past when I’ve said something it gets taken the wrong way, or that I revealed something. Even if I’ll say that it’s going to be an exciting season, it’ll get put out in the wrong way. I don’t know how I’m going to deal with this when I actually have to promote the thing, but I don’t want anything to get taken wrongly. I’ll say this about Season 7, it was just brilliant to work on. The intensity of doing episodes, and getting to do more than I’ve ever done on the show, it was fantastic and a wonderful experience, and it’ll be exciting for fans to see what’s next.
Season 7 had some of the most thrilling scenes the show has ever had, including the journey in “Beyond the Wall.” What was it like to shoot those scenes and work in the locations you’ve been able to film in?
We filmed a lot of that in Iceland. It was brutal, being out there in minus-40 degrees and the freezing wind. It can be quite an experience. Overall, I love location work. I’m more of a person that thinks there is a benefit of filming on location, whether it’s Game of Thrones or something else. You get to go to these incredible locations and step on to these amazing sets in places where people would have to pay to come visit. If you’re in film, that’s what you want to do. You can’t really complain when you are bitterly cold, because you’re in some of the most stunning places in the world like Iceland or Croatia and so on.
Did you keep anything from the Game of Thrones set?
I actually didn’t take anything too crazy. I kept some of the armor that I use for Jon Snow’s outfit, like the wrist protectors I’ll wear in his costume. I thought those were pretty cool.
What have you enjoyed about your experience working with Dolce & Gabbana in the past and on this campaign?
It’s exciting to work on something global and to work alongside people who enthusiastic and passionate about what they do. It helps when you like the fragrance personally already when you wear it. It’s a great scent and I enjoy it. It’s kind of surreal to me to find myself walking through an airport and you see your own face staring back at you. Doing this type of stuff is a different side of work for me, because it’s not exactly acting, but you also get to be creative and performative with it, and D&G are great collaborators in that sense. Plus, you get to wear some nice suits and look great for a day [laughs].
You looked very sharp at the Emmys with the Game of Thrones cast. Do you have any style tips for regular guys?
I was wearing a Dolce & Gabbana suit at the Emmys, so that was fun to be able to look sharp like that. As an actor, you get a lot of help with your style, but advice-wise, I’d say that I don’t really have any tips, but for me getting dressed up is about feeling comfortable. I’d say for anyone to keep that in mind, because if you feel comfortable and feel good about yourself, you’ll look better too.
Somewhere in your office, your posse, maybe even your family, you know the guy. The guy who wakes up every morning to a dresser drawer laid out like the sartorial equivalent of a ’50s suburb: Rows and rows of the exact same pair of socks. Don’t be that guy. Not when bringing a little adventure to your stride is as easy as a subscription to NextSock, which sends cozy, VIP-quality socks to your door in a variety of random patterns and styles. That’s two pairs a month in plaids, polka-dots, argyles or Christmas-sweater quirky—anything but tidy-whites or business blacks.
Take a cue from colorful sock rockers like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jon Hamm or Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Or ask any stylist: Whether it’s between jeans and sneakers or khakis and wingtips, that inch or two of fabric is your license to get a little crazy in a sly, subtle way. You’d be crazy not to.
Especially now, when a three-month subscription to NextSock is 60% off the regular price of $ 60. In other words, $ 24, shipping included—just $ 4 a pair, $ 2 a sock or (potentially) eight cents per argyle diamond. However you cut it, it’s a cheap way to turn that sock drawer into a treasure chest.

There were two near-takeovers at the Emmys on Monday, as streaming services expanded their impact on the awards, while “Saturday Night Live” permeated the ceremony.
