Jul 14 2023 Share

A major hit wave named ‘Cerebrus’ is currently wreaking havoc across parts of Europe, particularly in Southern regions. The forecast for the next few days indicates an alarming surge in temperatures, breaking previous records.

BBC News reports that Spain, France, Greece, Croatia, and Turkey are among the countries expected to endure scorching temperatures reaching up to 40°C. Tragically, the heat has already taken its toll in Italy, with reports of people collapsing and one unfortunate death.

In Malta, the local weather page ‘It-Temp Madwarna’ predicts that this heat wave will likely be the first and potentially only one of the summer, with temperatures expected to rise significantly on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th July.

The name ‘Cerebrus’ comes from the three-headed monster featured in Dante’s Inferno.

Filming for Ridley Scott’s epic sequel to Gladiator, alongside thousands of other productions, has come to an abrupt halt after the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) advised its members to walk out of productions on Friday morning.

This comes amid a major strike from workers in the entertainment world as they call for increased pay and better working conditions.

Shutdown preparations were reportedly under way over the past few days, with the strike being for the long haul according Hollywood sources and union spokespersons.

Filming for Gladiator 2 started in Malta back in June and was planned to last for four months, with locations including Kalkara’s Fort Ricasoli, which is one of the film’s central locations.

What does the future hold for Hollywood?
