Now you've been cited by the Hollywood reporter variety all of them pull stuff from yet.
What what's the ratio of how much they trust you hear how many times are usually wrong about any of these movies.

As I've gotten better at this over the years you know I get -- with -- more paranoid now and I.
Double check a triple check.
Us a school before running wouldn't you know I got to be absolutely sure because when -- group and you -- -- -- -- readership so I'm always.
Confirm me and then went too confident or some things about the frequent competitor that's when I go but I -- you know doing this for Coakley is not take my time.
I'm not in a hurry I mean after the first trade mention.
Or you know he gets you had a first and beginning true it was ego involved on some but they -- you get used to it -- moment.
And you know -- now it's about being on point all the time being correct and no not giving.
Then an opportunity to be -- but the problem is now.
We're living in Arabs -- denials.
-- on camera even to look to reporters and then not involved with specific project when they actually are they gave me an example -- -- we spoke before about the Dark -- Right now and tells us that married -- -- you know we broke that probably you know school is going to be in the Dark Knight rises.
And she went on the red carpet and both we slide to a reporter in this on the playing -- character that's not true.

In just a few moments so hang tight we're gonna give you this big -- -- this.
-- regards to the Star -- -- village you know that yes so.
Look you kind of old school about this you know what I mean it's it's kind of like the old school.
Yeah very oh -- I have -- -- -- the dirt -- you know -- -- magazine you're trying to get some info you're you're trying to get some leaks and scoops.
And what got you into this.
Basically I went out to Hollywood -- a decade ago -- from a funeral director and different -- -- And like in that TV show entourage you know I've stuck by him and you know handle some of his affairs while he was getting ready to release its first movie -- universal.
Sold through there I met a lot of people a lot of assistance at the time.
That are now in positions of power.
So I maintain you know and it's about relationships if anything so I maintain those relationships and maintained strong we do favors for each other and stuff so.
I remain loyal and loyal friend and and they are meaningless to me and stuff so they don't forget that so if he was Latino he'd be you -- from the -- -- yes I was in his manager Lou but I disorderly.
I was combinations at any sanctions -- right at all.
It's a time in my life on the back on finally and this you know so it was it was it was it was surreal because 9/11 happens.
And the movie was supposed to.
Go to Los Angeles the day before they -- so it was a depressing time was nothing going on the country was enough.
Press -- we discussed it and then in the fall.
He called me up we're going to Sundance.
Subway but we knew it was an ongoing and so on and so we went to Sundance -- -- -- at Sundance and interest and -- Of the class of 2002 he was the highest grossing movie of the -- this class of 2002 while in.
Yet when they released a movie music cost like three million and make -- in me eighteen at the box office you know that's -- -- -- a lot and some sort of.
Now we've been talking about a bunch of stuff good stuff tonight and even though that you guys have.
Leaked out on on the website or you scoop on the website at number one Tony Montana they're doing a remake of scarface I didn't even know -- -- -- -- remake -- -- -- and now he's.
Mexican yeah that's been to this day people that's one of our top ten stories to this every month when I look at our analytics I see what's the stores that accusers respond -- and the Tony Montana stories in the basically universal's remaking.
And I went on -- open the new scarface is actually going to be Mexican.
-- story out of the southwest dealing with the drug cartels and stuff so you know.
I try to brick land things -- -- ten points available invest something basically some that uniquely Latino.
And widely universal that's been hard -- just -- web site being remaining flattened.
Keeping our identity but being -- -- and widely universally appealing to everybody and that's when Montana -- something I'm not only Latin slow but not latins as well.
You have there's a new Star Wars movie we've talked about that you guys -- -- as well JJ Abrams and its Star Trek is basically gonna go over Star Wars which some would find.
With a -- grit that won the -- broke JJ directing so it was a personal so.
Right so I took you know I'd like I stick to superhero stories and so that -- was once so I took it.
Informal Twitter poll yesterday.
And harassment my followers -- matters to you guys -- -- to financing stalwarts so retreat for approval when I got.

That maybe he's gonna actually be doing a lot of activities with maps can be a small -- he's not a complicated relationship with -- and -- he wanted to kill off right in return of -- that I but George -- against the because console was about something figure at the time.
And you can't -- -- on toys right I remember when -- frozen it was a big deal for me.
We have frozen carbon and actually cried and empire and I hadn't been frozen carbon in my ounces and if your fan boys like me and maybe -- little bit.
-- big time you do that they actually did that because they were still arguing with that with him if he was gonna come back.
That's why they frozen in the empire strikes back from -- I suspect who.
-- I could be wrong I suspected he might just get his wish finally.
Thirty years later and one of these so -- -- -- maybe not polite but that's all speculation but we know we have confirmed what -- -- can confirm.
