"Oh God, no!"
In the wake of seemingly unending news regarding remakes of movies like Ghostbusters, The Crow, Sister Act, Point Break, Kindergarten Cop, The Birds (UGH!) and on and on and on comes AMAZING news about a possible remake of Back to the Future — THAT THERE WILL NEVER BE ONE! Producer Robert Zemeckis was recently asked about the possibility of a Back to the Future remake anytime in the future and his immediate answer was Oh God, no. According to Zemeckis, there can never be a BTTF remake without his and colleague Bob Gale‘s approval … which they promise they will never give as long as they live. Then, after they die, he hopes their estastes will fend off any remake plans for as long as possible. Soooo, yeah, Robert Zemeckis is my new hero. More »
"There is no Top Gun without Maverick"
Way back in 2010, we first learned that plans were in the works for a sequel film to the 1986 film Top Gun. In December of 2011, Top Gun star Tom Cruise voiced not only his support for a sequel to Top Gun but his interest in reprising his role as Lieutenant Pete Maverick Mitchell. In April of 2012, Paramount Studios confirmed that Top Gun 2 was coming … but then, nothing. In the wake of director Tony Scott‘s suicide in August of that year, all talk of Top Gun 2 went away and it was believed that the sequel would never get made … until now. David Ellison (CEO of Skydance Productions) is talking about the Top Gun sequel again, announcing that the film has a new screenwriter … and revealing that “an amazing role” is being written for Cruise‘s Maverick character because, as Ellison makes clear, “there is no Top Gun without Maverick“.

IT'S TOO MUCH!
Earlier this year I realized that Instagram was not as fun for me as it used to be. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, and then I realized that it was because of the models. I was following way too many models, and it was making me sad. Because dammit, if I post a selfie I want to enjoy that selfie and the likes it garners. I don’t want to post it, and then scroll down and see the likes of Selita Ebanks on my timeline. She is, officially, too horrifyingly stunning for me to bear witness to anymore and so I’m unfollowing her right now. In a minute. I’m done with her. So, peep the gallery for more unless you want to walk away still being okay with Selita Ebanks‘ existence.
P.S. Unfortch, I am no following Ashi Studio, the folks who made that gorgeous gown.

"I don't want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears."
Kanye West, looking about as miserable as he has ever looked in his life, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Q magazine. In his cover story interview, the subject of Kanye‘s mother — Donda Williams West — came up after he was asked about the thing that he sacrificed in his life to achieve his massive success. West‘s response, simply, was that his mother was the thing that he sacrificed for fame. All artists have to make sacrifices at some point in their careers in order for them to achieve their goals. In Kanye‘s case, he believes that his push for fame resulted in his mother’s death … which he blames himself for. Click below to see sad Kanye on the cover of Q and read what he has to say about his personal guilt regarding his mother Donda‘s death. More »
"Shit just got real"
In the wake of rumors that the new Green Lantern movie might focus on both Hal Jordon and Jon Stewart (both DC Comics characters that have been the Green Lantern), we learn today that model/actor Tyrese Gibson has been suggesting and hinting hardcore that he might be playing the role of Green Lantern / Jon Stewart in a new film (I guess those Denzel Washington rumors are dunzo). Tyrese posted a photo on his official Instagram profile that caught people’s attention and when he was asked about his Green Lantern hints, his coy answers seem to fuel the rumor flames that he will don the green costume as the next Green Lantern on the big screen. Click below to see his photo, read his teasing comments and speculate along with me, won’t you? More »
"I've written the book and it’s a jukebox musical"
The iconic 1995 film Clueless is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year which was marked back in April by the special edition release of the soundtrack on vinyl. We learn today that Clueless is being adapted into a stage musical and that director Amy Heckerling has written the book for the show. OMG. Heckerling sat down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight to dish a bit about the forthcoming Clueless: The Musical and as you can see below, she seems very excited to help bring this “jukebox musical” to life on the musical theater stage. OMG. Clueless: The Musical … couldn’t you just die?! More »
But, "All suitors are welcome."
Just a few days ago, we learned the upsetting news that NBC has decided to cancel their brilliant series Hannibal at the conclusion of the third season, which is airing through August on the network now. As soon as news of Hannibal‘s cancellation broke, fans of the show (Fannibals, if you will) have been hoping aloud that the series might find continued life on another network … possibly online … with Netflix being the company being bandied about most often. Today we hear from Hannibal show creator Bryan Fuller about the future of the series and he happily informs us that there has been interest from multiple interested parties in picking up Hannibal for future seasons. Because the show is already partnered with Amazon for online streaming rights, Fuller suggests that Hannibal might live on there … BUT, because other companies are interested in the show as well, all offers are being considered. THIS is amazing news. More »

Earlier this month we saw photos of Jurassic World actor Chris Pratt on the cover and in the pages of the British version of Men’s Health magazine. Today we learn that Pratt is also this month’s coverboy of the US version of Men’s Health magazine … complete with NEW photos to gawk at. While the British Men’s Health mag photos were a bit more fitness mag “serious”, the photos in the US version are much more fun and playful. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Chris really knows how to wear a flowered swim cap right. Check out the photos and then click below to read excerpts from Chris‘s cover store feature in the Red-Hot Summer Issue of Men’s Health magazine. More »
"You can get fined for swerving too hard so it's tough"
Jaden Christopher Pinkett-Smith, the only son of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, has become a bit of a fashionista in recent years with his bold fashion choices. Smith is featured in the new issue of GQ magazine wherein he talks a bit about his style and answers questions about some of his more … interesting outfits. You may recall that Jaden wore a white Batman costume to Kanye West‘s wedding ceremony back in May of 2014 … an outfit he wore, again, to his high school prom. GQ asked him what that was all about and his answer, as you can read below, is perfectly Jaden Smith. More »
Seriously, I don't think you're ready for this hawtness
Just this month alone, we have seen beautiful photos of Empire star Taraji P. Henson on the covers and in the pages of Emmy magazine and Allure magazine … but day, LORDE HAVE MERCY, we see Ms. Henson on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of W magazine. I mean … people … friends … y’all are not ready for this. Taraji looks unsurprisingly amazing on the cover of W but there is a photo inside the magazine that will leave you gasping for air. The photos were shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, so you know they’re hot, but … yeah, you’ll just have to see for yourselves. I should warn that the particular photo in question may be considered NSFW by some. Altho Taraji doesn’t show anything … she almost shows everything and, well, you’re just not ready. Have a look, see what I mean. More »
