Good morning, listeners – welcome to the first Buzz of 2023!
First on the list is a new Dracula movie coming to theaters in April.
The horror comedy is called Renfield and it follows Dracula’s henchman Renfield as he tries to navigate a life without serving his dark master.
The film stars Nicolas Cage as Dracula and Nicholas Hoult as Renfield. The trailer was just released yesterday and I’ve linked it below.
Also in movie news, the search is on for the new James Bond. So far, the leading favorite is Aaron Taylor-Johnson, one of the stars of 2022’s Bullet Train, but check out this article to see the full report on the search.
For any of you football fans and Breaking Bad fans, exciting news is on the way! Bryan Cranston is picking up Walter White’s shoes again for an upcoming Super Bowl ad.
Word on the street is that his Breaking Bad character is going to be advertising for PopCorners. Although it’s a quick ad, it’ll still be exciting to see something reminiscent of the iconic show on our screens again.
Lastly, this past week, AllAboutCats.com crafted a list of the world’s wealthiest pets in a Forbes-style list.
The list aimed to calculate pets’ net worth by using things like Instagram data to estimate “how much each of these pets could make per Instagram”.
Taylor Swift’s cat Olivia Benson came in third on the list, worth an estimated $97 million. The ironic thing is, Olivia Benson doesn’t even have an Instagram, although she has been in several music videos, has her own merchandise line, and has made cameos in big-budget ads like Diet Coke & Ned Sneakers.
First on the list was Gunther VI, a german shepherd who was estimated to have a net worth of $500 million, and number two was Nala Cat who had an estimated net worth of $100 million.
I was baffled at first seeing this list, but upon further investigation, I actually know a couple of pets on this list, like Tucker Budzyn, a golden retriever ranked at number 9 on the list with an estimated $1.5 million net worth.
See you back here next week!
