Chris Cornell’s widow, Vicky Cornell, is suing the surviving members of Soundgarden and has filed a lawsuit against the band over the rights to seven unreleased recordings.
The suit claims that the band is “withholding hundreds of thousand of dollars in royalties” owed to Cornell and her and Chris’ children who are minors. Vicky Cornell says that the band wants the rights to the material, which she calls an “unlawful attempt to strong-arm Chris’ Estate into turning over certain audio recordings created by Chris before he passed away.”
Vicky Cornell claims to have offered to share the recordings with Soundgarden so they can be released in conjunction with Chris’ wishes, including having his producer involved, but she says the band refused. Soundgarden are claiming they worked on the tracks with Chris, stating they were “working on the files in a collaborative effort,” and the “entire band was feeling very positive about their rekindled artistic energy and creativity” before Cornell passed away. The group also claims that various members of the band are co-songwriters on five of the seven disputed recordings.

The first trailer for the upcoming original movie about video games, titled Free Guy, reveals Ryan Reynolds and Killing Eve‘s Jodie Comer in a virtual world.
Directed by Shawn Levy (a longtime producer on Stranger Things) the story is about Guy (Reynolds). He’s a bank teller who yearns to break free from his increasingly boring life, but then he realizes why his life is so repetitive. The twist is that Guy is not actually a guy — he’s a background character (which in gamer speak is called a NPC, aka, non-playable character) within a videogame called Free City. The game is headed for cancellation, and Guy becomes self-aware, which catches the eyes of the developers. Thus begins Guy’s mission to save his game and himself from termination. Comer, meanwhile, plays two characters in the film: Millie, one of the game’s developers, and Molotov Girl, Millie’s in-game avatar.nja.
Free Guy is scheduled for theaters on July 3, 2020. You can take a look at the first trailer at the link here.
