Horrifying, Discriminatory, Disgusting Casting Call For ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Is, Sadly, Not That Surprising

" You should be light-skinned. Beyonce is a prototype here."

You know. I wanted to have a nice, quiet Sunday afternoon with my family. I wanted to work hard, put my kids to bed early, and watch The Strain and maybe The Leftovers. That’s all I wanted. But, instead, I’m going to be raging for a little while because the casting call for women for the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton is SO EFFING PROBLEMATIC, I can’t even deal. Like, I cannot believe someone wrote this with a straight face in 2014. And people—likely, people of color—approved it and shared it with the world. Click inside for more.

J.J. Abrams Comments On Those Leaked Photos From The Set Of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

"I wish people would stop ..."

A couple of days ago photos that were taken on the closed set of Star Wars: Episode VII were leaked to the Internets and a day later, more photos purported to be from the Star Wars set came to light as well. Just a short time ago, director JJ Abrams posted on Twitter a note that he wrote to the cast and crew of Episode VII asking them to “stop leaking photos” from the movie set. JJ‘s note also “clears up” rumors that the Millennium Falcon will appear in the movie. Click below to read JJ‘s note and see what he has to say about the photo leaks from the Star Wars set. More »

The First Photos Leak From The Set Of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Not a long time ago, On a movie set far away

A couple of weeks ago we got to see the handwritten note that director JJ Abrams penned for the cast and crew of Star Wars: Episode VII which is now filming in Europe. You may also recall that we got to see a tiny portion of the Episode VII set in that charity video announcement that was released around the same time. Considering how HUGE the new Star Wars film will be, I assumed that security would be air tight and these small glimpses at the set would be few and very far between. Yeah, I was completely wrong about that. TMZ managed to get their hands on over 40 photos that were snapped on the Star Wars set that show creatures, characters and locations that appear on set. It’s unknown how they got their hands on the photos but as you can see in the gallery presented here, the photos appear to have been taken by someone who was allowed to take photos on set. I don’t, personally, find the photos to be spoilery at all but they do give us an early, unauthorized look at the characters that we will see in the movie as well as one big creature. I’m glad to see that there will be less CGI in this movie and more creature puppetry … just like the original trilogy of Star Wars films. Check out the gallery and enjoy a mini-tour of the set of Star Wars: Episode VII.
