Disney's latest musical production
On December 25, Disney will release a live-action movie based on Steven Sondheim‘s beloved musical Into the Woods (the story that melds various fairytale stories into one narrative). Today we get to see a batch of photos from the film that has, thus far, gotten very little promotion. The first trailer for Into the Woods will be released soon so until then, we have this batch of promo photos to tide us over. You will see characters like Cinderella, the Big Bad Wolf, the Wicked Step Sisters, Little Red Riding Hood and more played by actors like Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and more. If there’s one thing that Disney usually does very well, it’s the movie musical. I like what I see thus far and can’t wait to see more.

Roomates. Lovers. Idiots.
We are just about 1 1/2 months away from the season 4 premiere of New Girl on Fox and today we get our first look at the poster art for the new season. Jess, Nick, Schmidt and the rest of the gang are all featured in this new poster art — wide-eyed and perfect-looking as ever. As you may recall, Jess and Nick decided to not remain girlfriend and boyfriend at the end of season 3 … so where do things go from there? Click below and find out. More »

Lana Del Rey has released another of her trademark music videos, this time for the title track of her new album Ultraviolence. Despite the fact that LDR tends to say ridiculous things in interviews (likely, for attention), she does manage to consistently put out music videos that keep her 100% on brand. In this new video, Lana plays a bride bathed in grainy black & white who looks forlorn and heartsick. Click the embed above and have a look. I love this song, I don’t mind the video. More of this and less interviews, LDR. For both our sakes, please.
Last week we learned that actress Zoe Saldana is pregnant — with twins — but today we get to see the stunningly beautiful actress all naked and stuff for the pages of British Women’s Health magazine … before she started to show her baby bump. Zoe posed completely nekkid for the magazine’s inaugural Body for Life campaign issue as a way to promote her new movie Guardians of the Galaxy before she started bumping out … and as you can see below, she looks smokin’ hot in the issue. Click below to see Zoe on the cover and in the pages of Women’s Health magazine and read some excerpts from her cover story interview. More »
Her debut solo album 'Crush Songs' is on the way
Karen O, the frontwoman for the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, announced last month that she would be releasing her first solo album later this year. Today we get our first look and listen of her debut solo single Rapt. Rapt is the first song released from her new album Crush Songs, which will be released on September 9. As you can see above, the video is a nice compliment to the sparse acoustic track. I love Karen O. I’ve been waiting for her to release a solo album for years now, so this is very welcome news for me. Check out the video and prepare yourselves for what will undoubtedly be an amazing album to come.

Oh, hey! There's Charlie Hunnam, too!
Yesterday we learned from Lea Michele herself that she will be appearing in the upcoming 7th and final season of Sons of Anarchy on FX. Today we get our first look at Lea on the set of the show. As I understand it, Lea will be playing a single mother who works at a truck stop diner in her one episode of the show. Click thru the gallery to see photos of Lea in and out of her SoA costume … and as a bonus, I threw in a few photos of Charlie Hunnam on set, too. You’re welcome :)
We got to hear Hilary Duff‘s NEW single Chasing the Sun yesterday and today, we get to see the just-released music video. In the clip embedded above, we see Hilary acting out a scenario where she is an overworked woman suffering in a bland office environment dreaming of the lazy summer days at the beach. It’s not the most unique of music video treatments but it is a cute video overall. I’m digging the song, the video is adorable … Hilary Duff is BACK, y’all.
Introudcing Ra’s al Ghul
The cast of Arrow made an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend to promote the upcoming third season of the show and they brought along with them a 3+ minute preview video for season 3. The video showcases the burgeoning romance between Oliver and Felicity and at the very end, introduces the new big bad in town — Ra’s al Ghul. Arrow season 3 looks great, click above and see for yourselves.

Because everything that is old must be repackaged, revamped and rebooted into something new … we get to see, today, the first trailer for the upcoming reboot of Max Max. Titled Fury Road, this new version of the movie (which originally starred Mel Gibson and Tina Turner) stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. I only saw the 1980 Mad Max movie once, many years ago so I’m not too familiar with the overall story. This new version looks gritty and more serious. I love Tom Hardy so I’m intrigued, are you? Click the embed above to check out the trailer and see what you think.

Over the weekend I shared some great pictures from the San Diego Comic-Con Hunger Games: Mockingjay event, and I mentioned that fans there got a look at the new trailer for the movie. And today we have our first look as well! For me, the best/worst part was seeing Philip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee) in the beginning of it. But yeah, it looks pretty awesome. Peep the trailer for more!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 hits theaters November 21.
