'You and me are through... I’mma do it acapella'
About a year ago I kinda fell in love with the duo Karmin, ao I was excited to see that they were back with a funky new single and video. Acapella is the first single from their upcoming full-length debut album (set for a September release) and the video is so dope! Lots of tight visuals, lots of color, and a really fun pop sound to go with. You can check out the lyrics to Acapella on DirectLyrics and peep the video for more!

Get It While You Can
Early last week we learned that Kanye West has teamed up with Parisian fashion house A.P.C. to design a capsule collection of clothing that is due for release today. At 10AM ET, the A.P.C. online store was updated with the full A.P.C. Kanye collection … which you can preview by clicking thru the gallery presented here. The prices for the individual pieces aren’t cheap (t-shirts are about $120, hoodies are about $280 and jeans are $265) but I have no doubt that this collection will completely sell out … probably very soon. Click thru the gallery, see what you think. Then, if you’d like to purchase something, you can do so HERE on the A.P.C. website or in one of their stores around the world. Personally, I’m not wowed by anything that I’ve seen from the A.P.C. Kanye Capsule Collection but the designs are clean and stylish. What do y’all think of Kanye‘s collection? Are you impressed?
"For never was a story of more woe ..."
A new production of the William Shakespeare tragedy Romeo and Juliet is headed for Broadway next season and today, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly magazine, we get our first look at the first promo photo released for play which stars actors Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad as the famous star-cross’d lovers. In recent years there have been film versions of the classic story (with a new film on the way) but Romeo and Juliet hasn’t graced the Broadway stage in 36 years … until now. Click below to see the full-size image of Orlando‘s Romeo and Condola‘s Juliet as they stare lovingly into one another’s eyes … and make your plans now, y’all. This is a Broadway production that is NOT to be missed. More »
Paul Rudd, Felicity Jones, P!nk-- Lotsa Dope Movies On The Way!
As you all know by now, I love a good movie trailer and I especially love keeping an eye on all the upcoming indie flicks. A little while back I heard that Shailene Woodley (in addition to starring in Divergent) had given a strong performance in The Spectacular Now. The trailer came out last month and it looks awesome! I’ve been meaning to share it with y’all, along with a few other trailers (especially this insane one starring Robin Wright and Naomi Watts who play best friends that kinda, sorta, start sleeping with each other’s sons– yikes!) so I figured I’d round ‘em all up in a little collection. Peep the video above to check out The Spectacular Now, and click inside for 5 more awesome trailers that you might have missed! Wait, did you know P!nk made a movie with Gwyneth Paltrow? Yeah, you better click inside.
'People Learn To Hate; They Can Be Taught To Love'
Last night I went to see Pacific Rim and was not disappointed. One thing I realized midway through the movie is that Idris Elba is kind of my fave. I don’t think I’ve disliked him in any role, ever. Back in February I was excited to learn that he’d been cast as young Nelson Mandela in the biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Today we have our first look at a teaser trailer, and although it reveals very little, I got really excited all over again. Sounds like Idris is nailing that South African accent, and I get the sense that he is going to deliver a very strong performance. Based on Mandela‘s autobiography of the same name, the film also stars Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela, and hits theatres November 29th. Peep the video for more!

Co-Starring Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana & Woody Harrelson
Okay so I know I should be going on and on about how awesome and bad-ass Christian Bale is in this new trailer for Out Of The Furnace… however. I need to take a moment and appreciate the awesome, bad-assness that is Casey Affleck! A little while back we saw him star in the amazing, still-haunting-my-dreams trailer for Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, and now he’s starring alongside Bale, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard, and Willem Dafoe in the new flick from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper. It looks so effing good! Kinda reminds me of The Fighter, where there’s a focus on two brothers who are wholly committed to each other… even to a fault. When Casey‘s character gets into trouble and goes missing, Bale goes on the hunt of a lifetime. It’s all very dark and gritty, and I can’t wait to see it! Peep the video for more!
Out Of The Furnace hits theatres December 6th.
Face to Face
Back in April we got our first look at actor Jamie Foxx in character as the villainous Electro on the NYC set of the upcoming superhero sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Right now we get to see Electro face off with Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) on the cover of this week’s San Diego Comic-Con issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. The coverphoto of this week’s issue of EW gives us our first official look at Electro lookin’ all electrified … and you can see it in full below. More »
"Mary Poppins is NOT for sale!"
Back in February of 2012 we first learned that Tom Hanks signed on to play Walt Disney in a new film that will tell the tale of how Disney secured the rights to bring P. L. Travers‘s children’s book Mary Poppins to the big screen. In April of that year, we learned that Emma Thompson won the role of Travers in the film titled Saving Mr. Banks. Today we get to check out the just-released first trailer for this Mary Poppins biopic and as you can see in the embed above, the story looks like a very interesting one. I had no idea that Travers was adverse to allowing Disney to turn her beloved book into a film but it’s clear that the pair’s contentious relationship will be played out in Saving Mr. Banks. I’m a big Mary Poppins fan so I’m really looking forward to the release of this film. Check out the trailer and see if it appeals to you, too. Saving Mr. Banks hits theaters on December 20.
