It’s the moment when the Burgess brothers put the Gladiator to the sword.

The South Sydney forwards, older brother Sam and twins George and Tom, were captured in the first of a series of funny commercials “Who’s in the Car?” for insurance company, Youi.

Pinching an idea from US comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s ‘Comedians in cars getting coffee”, the Burgess brothers are picked up by stand-up Aussie comedian Katie Burch who asks some tough questions.

EIGHTEEN games in the past three years, in a career that’s featured three shoulder reconstructions, broken jaws, ankles and 18th man duties for a historic grand final win.

You best take your chances in this life. Ray Thompson didn’t need a trip to the Land of Opportunity to crack that one.

Sitting poolside at the Beverley Hills Hotel with Oscar winner Russell Crowe and footballing great Steven Gerrard six months ago, the Cowboys utility deserved every decadent second of that moment.

If you’re ever looking for a teammate to join your pub trivia night, maybe international superstar singer Lorde could help you out.

The Kiwi singer revealed on Australian radio station triple j that she’s won a $50 bar tab *and* a free pizza in her quiz defeating conquests before. Which is better than most of our efforts.

While Lorde may not be able to drive — which is why she had to think long about where the green light on a traffic light — she’ll always be reliable on those movie soundtrack questions.

Just don’t ask her anything about her fellow New Zealander, actor Russell Crowe. She thought he was Australian! For shame, Lorde!

Universal Pictures (via Syfy Wire) has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for their upcoming film The Mummy which teases a big punch-up between Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton and Russell Crowe’s Dr. Henry Jekyll.

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

Oyelowo has already signed on to portray Sweet, while it is understood that Crowe is interested in playing Darrow.

James Mangold delivered one of this year’s best films with Logan, and among its many acclaimed aspects is its vibe and feel of a modern-day western. It’s something he’s done before with Cop Land, but Mangold also made a point of directing an actual western as well.

Maximus goes on to seek revenge against Commodus and ultimately dies in the arena, but not before triumphing over the man who killed his family and destroyed his life.
