Travis Kalanick reportedly sought to reassert control at Uber after ouster

 Just under two months after resigning from Uber, former CEO Travis Kalanick has reportedly asked some former colleagues if they would support him in a potential shareholder battle, according to a new report by The Information.

Yes, Vladimir Putin has gone shirtless again to remind you of his dad bod power

TwitterFacebook

You already know that the golfing, TV watching, Twitter-obsessed U.S. president is on vacation, but you might not have known that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is on vacation, too. 

Luckily for you, we just got our hands on Putin’s vacay photos, and they’re full of spymaster-in-the-Siberian-tundra cheesecake. 

In photos released by the Kremlin on Saturday, Putin is shown going on a fishing trip with a few friends.

Can I get a visual on Renegades?

The Navy SEAL drama that was set to hit North American theaters in three weeks has vanished from the schedule, reports Richard Rushfield in Friday’s edition of The Ankler. We’ve confirmed that EuropaCorp, the French film production company behind Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, has indeed aborted the mission to open it Sept. 1. No alternate date has been set.

The tale of a Navy SEAL team that discovers treasure in a Bosnian lake stars J.K. Simmons — he of now beastly ripped old-man physique — and no one else you’ve likely heard of.
