Meet the Players
With mere weeks to go until Disney‘s live-action film Maleficent hits theaters, we get to check out a new batch of character posters that have been released for the film. Up until now, Maleficent has taken center stage in all of the poster artwork for the film but today we get to see Princess Aurora, King Stefan, Diaval and the Pixies all star in posters of their own. But you will note that Maleficent still gets more posters all to herself. Love!

Yesterday, in honor of Star Wars Day, Episode VII director JJ Abrams and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan released a video message to celebrate the day and reveal that casting for the upcoming new Star Wars film is still underway. As you may recall, the first round of Episode VII casting was announced last week but as you can see in the video above, Abrams reveals that more casting announcements are on the way (which means that Lupita Nyong’o may yet nab a role in the movie). If you click below, you will see two other videos that were released on Star Wars Day yesterday … one starring R2-D2 and the other starring a troupe of dancing Stormtroopers. Both are not to be missed. More »

The second weekend of the 2014 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival kicks off today and in honor of the music fest’s 15th year, I present to you all of the official posters that have been released listing all of the performers who have played Coachella since 1999. Back in the day, Coachella used to be a two-day festival but because of its growing popularity, it has since been expanded to a three-day festival … which is repeated over two different weekends. But, Coachella wasn’t successful from the get go. The first Coachella festival in 1999 did not make a profit … so it was cancelled in 2000. It resumed in 2001 and has been making LOADS of money ever since. Artists like Björk, The Cure, O(+> (aka Prince), Madonna, Oasis, Beastie Boys, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and The Killers have all headlined Coachella over its 15 year history. Click thru the gallery presented here to look back at all the acts that have played Coachella up to this weekend. Are any of you heading out to Indio, CA for weekend 2 of Coachella 2014? If so, have the best time ever!

The TV Guide
Last night I was invited to an early screening of the new Zac Efron/Seth Rogen movie Neighbors which I thought looked pretty funny in the first red band trailer that we saw last September. But, because the movie doesn’t come out until May, I can’t really talk about the movie or give a review just yet. I think it’s safe for me to say, tho, that I enjoyed myself last night and I’m glad I was able to see the movie early because I now have the opportunity to recommend that all y’all see the movie, too, when it opens in theaters on May 9.
