"They want N.W.A.? Let's give them N.W.A."
In February we got our first look at the first (and very red band) trailer for the N.W.A. biopic film Straight Outta Compton. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film … which really looks great. While the first trailer was more action packed, I think, this second trailer shows more of the story. While not as flashy, there is much more heart in this trailer … which actually got me choked up a bit. Straight Outta Compton will open in theaters this summer and I cannot wait to see it. Check out this trailer and I think you’ll agree.

Last night, I met up with my friend Stacey for a dinner and movie date in the valley … where we got to see the 1995 movie Clueless on the big screen at the Arclight Theater in Sherman Oaks, CA. Stacey and I have been planning this movie date for a few weeks now so I was really excited when the day finally arrived. She and I met at Public School 818 for dinner (which was amazingly delish) before we made our way to the Sherman Oaks Galleria to see Clueless. Because that movie is one of my all-time faves, I’ve seen it many, many times over the years. But last night’s screening was the first time I’d seen the movie in a theater in many, many years. So fun! More »

Seriously, watch this quickly before it gets yanked!
AHHH! You shouldn’t even be reading this right now … you should be up there watching the just leaked first video footage of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice which just made its debut online. For a couple of days now, I’ve been hearing rumors that this first teaser would be shown in front of Mad Max: Fury Road when it opens in theaters next month but it looks like the teaser trailer couldn’t wait that long. The video is grainy (it looks like it was filmed with a cell phone off a computer or TV screen) and it will NOT stay online for long. This clip is just about 32 seconds long but it not only gives us quick peeks of Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) … but it also — SPOILER ALERT — reveals that fellow Justice League member GREEN ARROW (not played by Stephen Amell) will appear in Dawn of Justice, too! This trailer breaks that news, Green Arrow was not previously announced as a character in DoJ. At first glance, this movie really looks like it’s shaping up to be a real Justice League movie rather than a Batman / Superman movie. OMG. I had my doubts about this sequel / DC Comics movie franchise reboot but I am effing impressed as HELL with this first look at Dawn of Justice. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! WATCH THIS TRAILER NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN and tell me what you think below!!!
I'm a believer at last!!
Thus far, we have seen two preview trailers for the upcoming Mad Max reboot film Fury Road (HERE and HERE) and while both trailers look pretty good, I’ve yet to get really excited to see this new Max Max movie … until now. A third “Official Main Trailer” for Mad Max: Fury Road has been released and is featured in the embed above and OMG, it’s seriously the best thing ever. This new trailer really features the compelling plot of the movie and marries it with absolutely insane action scenes. This is the first trailer that has sold me 100% on seeing this movie when it opens in May. Give it a look above and see how really damn good it is. OMG.

Last night, I finally found the time to sit down and watch the HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief which was released in theaters on March 13 and premiered on HBO this past Sunday night. For months now, I’ve been hearing great things about this doc based on the book Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright. Over the years, I’ve heard many things about Scientology, upsetting things that were more fully explained in this doc, but seeing it all together in one sitting was a lot to take in. My range of emotions went from shock to disbelief to horror to sadness and since the doc is 2 hours long, there is a lot to feel from start to finish. The movie left me feeling a bit spent. It’s a movie that I would highly recommend but would caution viewers to be prepared to deal with a LOT in this film. More »

Is this trend getting out of hand or nah?
In just the past couple of months we learned that Disney is planning live-action remakes of their animated feature films Dumbo and Beauty and the Beast in the wake of the success of their previous live-action remakes of their animated feature films Sleeping Beauty (Maleficent) and Cinderella. Today we learn, unsurprisingly, that Disney is planning to remake another of their animated features into a live-action film. This time, Disney will bring their 1998 film Mulan to life in live-action form. Part of me wants to be excited but another part of me feels that this live-action thing is starting to get out of hand.

At a convention over the weekend, actors Adam West and Burt Ward — the original Batman and Robin from the ’60s TV series Batman — broke the news that they will be voicing a new animated Batman film set for release in 2016 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original Batman TV series. They actors didn’t really give a lot of details about the project but they said it so it has to be true … right? Yes, probably. Click below to watch video of West and Ward making this surprising movie announcement and learn as much info as is presently available about this animated film project. More »
"Paul was literally an angel"
Last week we got to check out Ludacris’ digital cover of VIBE Magazine, where he opened up about his upcoming album and the release of Furious 7. It was an excellent story, and the emotion behind his comments about Paul Walker was incredibly palpable. I felt similarly reading the VIBE cover with Tyrese Gibson. In addition to talking about his new album, book, and short film with Jennifer Hudson, Gibson talks Furious 7, and the bittersweet promo tour they decided to cut short, following Walker‘s passing.
