The TV Guide
Last night was a pretty chill night for me at home. I decided to get some work down around the house and settle in for a little TV. I recorded the 1994 movie Interview with the Vampire, starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, on my DVR a few days ago and decided to watch it last night. I was obsessed with the movie when it came out so I’m already a big fan of this movie adaptation of the book. It has been many years since I’ve seen the movie but my interested was piqued again after attending that Anne Rice book signing last month. Even tho I already know how much I enjoy the movie, I was reminded by how good it still is. More »
Finding Dory's family, actually
Last month we got to see the first poster art released for the upcoming sequel film Finding Dory, which was announced back in 2012, and today we learn a bit of plot details about the forthcoming movie. The president of Disney/Pixar Studios made an appearance at the Comic-Con Experience in Brazil yesterday to unveil artwork from the film and share a bit about the Finding Dory storyline. According to him, we are going to learn about where Dory was born and raised … and hopefully find her family. More »

Presumably, a good time was had by all
Many people, famous and otherwise, made their way to the New York City premiere of the new remake of Annie, starring Quvenzhané Wallis in the titular role, and among those people was the Knowles-Carter family. Beyoncé and Jay Z brought along their daughter Blue Ivy to the Annie premiere for a fun family outing together and, I understand, they had a great time in the process. Click through the gallery to see photos of Bey, Jay and Blue making their exit from the event and do take note of Blue Ivy‘s fabulously stylish outfit, please. Her parents looked nice, but Blue was lookin’ too fly for anyone to take notice of anyone else in her vicinity (insert painting fingernails emoji here).
I mean … everyone else put out a parody video for Star Wars: The Force Awakens so why not Saturday Night Live? Honestly, it’s a pretty funny clip, which is rare for SNL. Enjoy.
What's Old is New Again
The first teaser for Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens has been remade AGAIN but this time not in LEGO, or in the style of George Lucas or Wes Anderson. This time, the trailer has been recreated using footage from the original Star Wars Trilogy films. Click above to see the new teaser recreated scene by scene with footage from Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
An epic, timely cover story for 'The Hollywood Reporter'
I don’t think this article could have come at a better time. Seriously. Chris Rock penned a brilliant (and hilarious) essay for the December cover story of The Hollywood Reporter, and I finally got the chance to read it today. The actor and comedian has been a favorite of mine for some time now, and I am so insanely excited about his new movie Top Five, I make everyone in the house quiet down when the trailer comes on TV… in spite of the fact that I’ve seen it just about every day. Tracy Morgan, Rosario Dawson, JB Smoove, Gabrielle Union (and I just realized Jay Z and Kanye West are two of the producers)—it’s going to be great. Click inside to read my 10 favorite moments from his amazing article!
That's a wrap!
Earlier this year, filming production on the much-anticipated sequel film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice got underway in the metropolitan Detroit, MI area before it moved to Chicago, IL and New Mexico. Today we learn that production of the movie has wrapped, thanks to a cryptic video shared on Instagram by the film’s cinematographer Larry Fong. The video, which you can see below, features a close-up shot of something black (likely Batman-related) set against a snowy white backdrop (possibly Superman‘s Fortress of Solitude-related). Altho we still have well over a year to go before the movie opens in theaters, I suppose the countdown to the film’s opening can commence. More »
"This is more than just malice"
A clip of footage from the Disney adaptation of Into The Woods has been released that shows us a portion of Anna Kendrick‘s performance of the song On the Steps of the Palace, which you can see above. We already know that Anna Kendrick can sing because she was pretty terrific in Pitch Perfect but I’m curious to see how she is in this full-on musical production movie. Check out the clip above and see a tiny bit of Into The Woods before it hits theaters on Xmas day.
Yes, Arnold says "I'll be back"
In August we learned the title, in October we got our first look at the characters, yesterday we saw the motion poster and today — we get to see the first trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Terminator: Genisys. As you can see above, Genisys looks more like a retelling of the Terminator origin story rather than an actual sequel … tho, it would appear that the plot is open enough for interpretation to make an argument that this is a sequel. I dunno. The trailer looks much better than I was anticipating so that’s the good news. Terminator: Genisys will open in theaters next summer. Does it look like something you’re dying to see?

Thus far, we have seen the official teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and the Internet has given us both a LEGO version of the teaser and an imagined George Lucas version of the teaser. Today, we get to see what the teaser trailer might look like had it been directed by Wes Anderson. Since the LEGO version came out, there have been a plethora of similar (yet subpar) parody videos … but this Wes Anderson one is so perfect that I had to share it. Thank you Internet, for this here gift.
