On October 17, the film Dear White People will open in select cities and as you can see in this red band trailer (the NSFWness comes in the form of language, btw) the movie will very likely get people talking … which is the intent. What happens when a group of Caucasian students host a party that is African American-themed? Well, this movie will show you. I’ve been hearing about this movie but this trailer is the first I’ve seen of it. I can’t tell if I’m genuinely interested in the story or if I’m just curious to see how these racial stereotypes will be handled in this feature film. Have a look above and see what you think about Dear White People. Does this look like a movie that you would like to see in theaters?

I’m quite certain that it will come as absolutely no surprise to any out there AT ALL to learn that I spent my evening/night at Disneyland … but I promise, I had a really good reason for being there. Two great reasons, actually. First, my friends Genevieve and Charlie’s daughter Audrey turned 4 years old yesterday and, as it their tradition, they took her to Disneyland for her special day. Second, Disney hosted a special screening of Sleeping Beauty in the park for Annual Passport holders in honor of the 55th anniversary of the film’s release as well as the film’s re-release on DVD. So, you see, there was really no way I could miss either of these major events. More »
This is TOO much awesome
The brilliant folks at CineFix have put together a short video that shows what Disney‘s animated feature film Frozen would look like as an 8-bit video game and as you can see above, the video is nothing short of perfection. Even if you’re sick and tired of Frozen by this point, you have to watch this video to see how cleverly it’s been adapted into a fictional video game — that I really wish existed! If for nothing else, you have to hear the music from Frozen in glorious 8-bit form and just really respect all the inventive hard work that went into the creation of this video. Ugh, it’s soooo good.

And it's called 'Christian Mingle'
PITNB reader Rachel gave me the head’s up that Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert is starring in a new movie called Christian Mingle which is based on the dating website Christian Mingle and my head almost exploded from all the weird awesomeness. First, I’m really quite impressed that someone came up with the idea to make a movie based on Christian Mingle. Second, I’m thrilled that Lacey won the lead role in this awesome-sounding movie. Honestly, the premise sounds more like a movie you’d see on the Hallmark Channel but still, I’m intrigued. Lacey‘s character is NOT a Christian but she’s so thirsty to find a man that she pretends to be a Christian on Christian Mingle and then meets and falls in love with a Christian guy named Christian (OK, I made that part up but wouldn’t this movie be better if his name was Christian?!) and she has to keep pretending to be a Christian to keep him until his suspicious mother ferrets out the LIE that she is NOT a Christian. My guess is that the guy, being the good Christian that he is, decides to love her anyways and Lacey‘s character becomes a Christian in the end and the couple proceed to mingle … in the Biblical way (but only after marriage). DOESN’T THAT SOUND LIKE A MOVIE YOU’D LIKE TO SEE? I’m not even kidding, I deffo plan to see this movie. It hits theaters this month so … who wants to come with?
Trying to get inside David Fincher's head
This past weekend may have been the first one in 50 years where there were NO Saturday Morning Cartoons on any of the major network channels but it was also a weekend where Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor appeared on a morning TV talk show. Reznor appeared on CBS This Morning to discuss the writing process for the score of Gone Girl and as you can see above, he can handle himself very well on bright, sunny morning TV just as well as he can handle himself on stage in front of a mass of sweaty, moshing music fans. It’s a really interesting interview, I think you will enjoy it.
The 'SaTC' stars tease about "That news zooming around."
A few days ago, actress Jennifer Hudson announced that she is in talks to appear in a third Sex and the City movie and while nothing has been officially confirmed, two of the lead SaTC stars are now teasing us with the rumor on Twitter. First, Kristin Davis (Charlotte) tweeted at Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie) and SJP replied … neither one of them really said anything concrete … BUT WE KNOW WHAT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT. Read the SaTC stars’ tweets and see what you think. More »

Whatever. Keep hope alive.
I’m not sure if it’s still on there, but last month Revolutionary Road was on HBO Go , and it made me so happy. But then sad. Then happy. I have loved this movie since it first came out back in 2008, and I realized that I’m basically a teenager watching Titanic for the first time. I just want Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio to make it! But I know they won’t! And because we are all insane and obsessed with these two, Winslet is still explaining to the public why she and DiCaprio will never be. Click inside for more!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this movie.
Trent did an amazing job giving a not-so-spoilery review yesterday of Gone Girl. I just read it a minute ago, because I wanted to go into the theatre completely blind last night. Now, I’m going to SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL the hell out of this movie right now, so please GO AWAY if you haven’t seen it yet! One thing I told my partna-in-babymaking when we left was that I was so sad that I would never have that experience again—my “first time” with Gone Girl, lol. But really, as much as I can’t wait to watch the movie again, I know it will never be the same. I was having all of these thoughts last night about Rosamund Pike as Amy Dunne, and sex, and sexuality, and sex! And then this morning I found this piece on Gone Girl as “the Latest Film to Showcase Female Pleasure,” and things started to make more sense for me. Female pleasure… is everything, lol.

“Look for Louise from St. Louis”
WAAAAY back in 2010, we first heard rumors that a third Sex and the City movie was coming our way but after a few years of no news and certainly no movement on SaTC 3, it seemed like hopes for a third feature film installment of Sex and the City were dashed for good. THEN in February of this year, both Sarah Jessica Parker and SaTC executive producer Michael Patrick King starting talking about the possibility of making the third movie after all. Today we learn from actress Jennifer Hudson (who co-starred in the first Sex and the City movie) that she is in “talks” to star in Sex and the City 3 … which suggests that plans are deffo in the works for a third film. To this news I say, PRAISE JEBUS! HALLELUJAH!!! More »
