BBC Sport Accused Of Ripping Off ‘Slay In Your Lane’ Book For New Ad Campaign

BBC Sport Accused Of Ripping Off ‘Slay In Your Lane’ Book For New Ad Campaign An author has accused the BBC of copyright infringement after the title of her book about how to find success as a black woman, Slay In Your Lane, was used in a BBC Sport advert. Yomi Adegoke – who co-wrote the 2018 best-selling book alongside Elizabeth Uviebinené – tweeted that the title had been used in the new #ChangeTheGame campaign on Tuesday. “Imagine being a white woman creating an ‘eMpOwErInG WoMeNs’ ad campaign for @BBCSport, and choosing to rip off the *TRADEMARKED* name of a book specifically aimed at uplifting black women (in an almost identical font),” she wrote.

This weekend's box office is expected to be a quiet one with "Toy Story 4" still a week away, but Sony will still have a blockbuster on the slate with "Men In Black: International," the fourth installment in the 90s alien action-comedy series and the first without stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.

In their place are "Thor: Ragnarok" duo Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, respectively playing the top agent and newest rookie in MIB's London branch. Though the pair have become recognizable names thanks to their work in Marvel and elsewhere, "MIB: International" is still looking like one of the biggest risks of the summer slate.

Unlike more recent superhero franchises where the characters have been the main draw, "Men In Black" comes from a time when actors were the biggest selling points for blockbusters. Back in 1997, Jones was an Academy Award-winning star whose recent work included "The Fugitive" and "Batman Forever." Smith meanwhile was coming off the huge success of "Independence Day" after jumping from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" to the big screen. The pairing paid off, not only for the continued stardom of the two stars, but for the studio, which produced successful sequels in 2002 and 2012.

To replace that iconic pair and get audiences to come back will be no easy task, and right now the numbers aren't looking good for "MIB: International."

Sony, who co-financed the film with Hemisphere and Tencent, is projecting a $30 million opening from 4,200+ screens.

"Chris and Tessa have a track record of having great chemistry onscreen together, but I just don't see 'Men in Black' having four-quadrant appeal in 2019, especially without Will Smith," said Boxoffice's Shawn Robbins. "I think a lot of families are holding on to their movie ticket money for when 'Toy Story 4' comes out."
