Logan Paul is more than just a controversial YouTuber – the internet star also has acting chops, which he’s putting on display in his new comedy film “Airplane Mode.”

Paul’s direct-to-video flick is heading to iTunes after four years in development, as told in a statement from the YouTuber via Twitter on July 31.

“Four years later, and Airplane Mode is finally here,” Paul wrote. “This is the craziest, raunchiest, edgiest movie you’ll ever see. Wear a helmet and elbow pads when you watch it. And a diaper.”

This wouldn’t be the first announcement of Paul’s film, either: he similarly posted about the flick on Instagram in January, which was shown at the Mammoth Film Festival a month later.

For those curious about the movie before spending their cash, the synopsis is as follows: while en route to a social media convention in Australia, Logan Paul’s plane goes haywire, after passengers collectively refuse to place their smartphones in airplane mode.

IMDBLogan Paul’s “Airplane Mode” film was originally slated for a 2017 release – but his scandal in Japan’s “Suicide Forest” may have delayed the title.

Of course, “Airplane Mode” also features a slew of internet celebrities, including names like vlogger Casey Neistat, former Vine star King Bach, Logan’s little brother Jake Paul, and many more.

Although simple in plot, Paul’s film could be a hilarious, fun-filled time – but early reviews are already bashing the movie before it’s even made its official debut.

IMDB has already slated the film at 3.5/10, while users across Twitter are wondering why it is being released after such a long wait.

“Like this tweet if you thought the movie had been aired flopped and forgotten, then this tweet made you happy,” one user wrote.

“This looks just terrible?” another Tweeted. “Can we know whose in it besides the C-List celebrities below the title?”

This wouldn’t be Paul’s first brush with the silver screen, either: the YouTuber also appeared in the mysteriously unreleased remake of 1983’s “Valley Girl,” which was put on hold following his scandal in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in early 2018.

Whatever the case may be, fans of the oldest Paul brother can pre-order his comedy film on iTunes as of July 31 – a film that will release in full on August 2.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
