Man Gets Head Stuck in Movie Theater Seat, Dies

We know the above headline is likely to make you laugh.

But this is a serious matter.

This is the story of a real tragedy that took place in Great Britain.

According to various news outlets, a 24-year old father named Ateeq Rafiq was seeing a movie in Birmingham, England on March 9 when he dropped his cellphone between two reclining seats.

When Rafiq bent down to pick up the item, the footrest on the electrically-powered seat clamped down on his head, reports the Birmingham Mail newspaper.

The horrific incident took place at Vue Cinema at Star City, the outside of which is pictured below.

Said a spokesperson for the venue in a prepared statement:

“Following an incident which took place on Friday 9 March at our Birmingham cinema, we can confirm that a customer was taken to hospital that evening.

“We are saddened to learn that he passed away on Friday 16 March.

“A full investigation into the nature of the incident is ongoing. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family who have our full support and assistance.”

How could this possibly have happened?

A source familiar with the situation described what transpired thusly when speaking to the aforementioned publication:

“The Gold Class seats are electric reclining seats. He bent down to look for his phone.

“At this point the leg-rest was in an upright position. But as he stuck his head underneath to have a look, the footrest clamped down onto his head. He was stuck.

“His partner and staff tried to free him but couldn’t. The chair leg-rest was eventually broken free and he managed to get out.”

From there, Rafiq was taken to a local hospital.

He passed away several days later from injuries sustained in this freak accident.

The victim’s family is devastated by the loss, says sister-in-law Fatima Arzo to The Daily Mirror.

“We are grieving and completely in shock. My sister is in pieces,” she told the newspaper, adding:

“We are grateful to everyone who tried to help him, and at the moment we are praying and trying to come to terms with the fact we lost a loved one.”

The cinema complex at Star City where this took place features 25 screens, including three Gold Class rooms where the emphasis is on comfort and luxury.

Reads the official website:

“The Gold Class ticket price includes complimentary popcorn during your film and is strictly for over 18’s, offering luxury seating with a fully licensed bar and an enhanced viewing experience.

“Gold Class customers are welcome to visit the Gold Class bar to enjoy a drink before and during the screening.”

Our thoughts go out to the family of Ateeq Rafiq.

May he rest in peace.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Shown in Bed in Steamy Movie Teaser

Lifetime is coming out with Meghan & Harry: A Royal Romance. That's right, folks. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's romance, portrayed on screen for your viewing consumption.

They've released a short teaser trailer (which you can see below) and, despite its brevity, there is so much in it.

And it looks surprisingly steamy.

Lifetime meghan markle and prince harry 01

Our first big takeaway from the trailer is that the actress whom they selected to portray Meghan Markle has a surprising likeness to her.

Parisa Fitz-Henley is a stunningly beautiful actress, and she could almost be MegMar's sister.

The real Meghan seems to be plagued with opportunistic siblings who are more interested in making trouble for her by speaking to the media than they are in celebrating her happiness.

While Murray Fraser, the actor portraying Prince Harry, is a handsome ginger man, he doesn't seem to almost trick viewers at certain angles in the same way that Fitz-Henley does.

Looking at her in this trailer, you might swear that she's the real deal.

(Part of that, admittedly, is the wig)

Our second big takeaway from this trailer is that … it looks like it's very much a Lifetime film.

Not to be mean, but a lot of what we see in the trailer looks less like the setting of a royal romance and more like … what people would like to imagine is the most romantic.

So … the sorts of dates that you'd see on The Bachelor.

That's a product of a few factors.

One, this royal couple has always been fairly private about their romance. As private as you can be when the whole world is watching, anyway. A lot of their real-life dates have taken place behind closed doors. Producers had to make do with guesswork.

Two, they're trying to tell a romantic story and cash in on fans of the real thing as well as on hate-watchers or those who will tune in ironically.

Three, this is a Lifetime movie, and they're not going to break the bank on this, folks.

Before you ask, no, Murray Fraser is not the actor who impersonated Prince Harry on I Can Marry "Harry" … which continues to be one of the most controversial reality shows of all time.

That actor was Matthew Hicks, who had previously worked as a Prince Harry impersonator, which is one of the most niche jobs that one can possibly imagine.

Murray Fraser is a real actor — in fact, he and Parisa had such a good time on the set of Meghan & Harry: A Royal Romance that they've been posting on social media about wanting to work on another project together.

Not all actors who play love interests get along so well.

In fact, a lot of actors find it awkward to interact with those with whom they've filmed bedroom scenes.

We never thought that we'd say this, but Lifetime is really pushing the envelope, here.

Bedroom scenes — including, as you'll see in the teaser, naked bedroom scenes — aren't unheard of, obviously.

But portraying a royal couple in the nude and in bed together is going to ruffle some feathers.

Not only is the British Royal Family an important symbol for the United Kingdom (well, at least, for the British), but they're treated reverently in certain ways beyond how one might treat a politician or mascot.

Remember, there are still monarchists in this world (really) who believe that the European royal lines were divinely ordained.

Not everyone is going to take kindly to seeing a royal couple portrayed like this:

That said, some people don't like the real couple. Remember, Meghan Markle was targeted by a racist hate crime.

A website linked to the terrorist group Daesh claims to have Meghan Markle's nudes and sexts and has threatened to release more unless the UK withdraws its troops from the Middle East.

Which … is not going to happen for a lot of reasons. Mostly because Parliament does not actually set policy based upon the electronic activity of a future duchess. Who knew?

(It's also not going to happen because the claims that they have video of her pleasuring herself with a pig's foot sounds … super fake, for various reasons)

This May, you can tune in to Lifetime to watch someone's fanfiction of MegMar living out the dreams of a lot of girls who grew up in the '90s.

Also this may, you can actually watch Meghan Markle and Prince Harry get married. That's on the 19th.
