Hong Kong's top court denies bail to media tycoon Jimmy Lai

  Hong Kong's top court denies bail to media tycoon Jimmy Lai Hong Kong's top court on Tuesday ordered pro-democracy media tycoon Jimmy Lai to stay behind bars as it sided with prosecutors in the first legal test of Beijing's sweeping new national security law. The landmark case cements the dramatic changes the security law has begun making to semi-autonomous Hong Kong's common law traditions as Beijing seeks to snuff out dissent in the restless financial hub. Lai, the 73-year-old owner of pro-democracy tabloid Apple Daily, is one of more than 100 activists arrested under the law since it was enacted in June, and the highest-profile figure to be placed in pre-trial custody.

The cast of this remake is not yet known.

Released in 1997, Volte / face saw John Travolta play an FBI agent forced to exchange faces (and therefore identity) with his son's assassin (Nicolas Cage) to prevent a terrorist attack; but everything changed when the criminal awoke from the coma in which he was plunged to in turn take on the features of the hero.

For the record, Godzilla vs Kong is the fourth installment of the MonsterVerse, a franchise centered on Godzilla and King Kong produced by Legendary and Warner and initiated in 2014 with the reboot Godzilla. The second movie was Kong: Skull Island (2017) and the third Godzilla 2 - King of the Monsters (2019). The MonsterVerse was designed in partnership with Toho, the Japanese studio that produced the Godzilla series that began in 1954 with the cult feature film Ishirō Honda.

Its director Adam Wingard, found footage lover, had directed the Blair Witch 2 (2016) sequel as well as a segment of V / H / S (2012) and V / H / S / 2 (2013).
