"I ruined the moment, didn't I?"
We are just under 2 weeks away from the release of Ant-Man in theaters and the promo stuff just keeps on coming. Today we get to see an international trailer for Ant-Man that was produced for the Spanish-speaking market and as you can see above, this new trailer reveals that a Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero will be making an appearance in the movie. Thus far, there has been no indication that this superhero (or any other MCU hero) might make a cameo in the movie but thanks to this new trailer, now we know. If THIS particular hero makes a cameo, it’s possible that others may as well. HMMM. This trailer is only spoilery in the revelation of this particular cameo but it mostly features footage we’ve already seen. I am so ready to see this movie, I can’t even tell you! AHHH! July 17.
His 7 Best Dance Moves in 30 Seconds
Channing Tatum is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine and as you can see below, he gave the magazine a lot of really great footage to use to promote the release of this issue. In addition to the pretty pictures and the cover story feature interview, Channing also filmed some behind the scenes video for use online … which brings me to the point of this post. Channing was asked to bust out as many dance moves as he could in 30 seconds time … which resulted in his ability to showcase his 7 best dance moves … dances like the Running Man, the Funky Chicken and The Twist. His shining moment, tho, comes when he starts to Vogue. I mean, you’ve seen Channing Tatum dance … you know he can Vogue … but seeing is believing so … have a look below. More »
"Don't act like you forgot, I call the shots, shots, shots"
Earlier this week, we got to see a preview trailer of Rihanna‘s cinematic music video for her single Bitch Better Have My Money. Just a short time ago, Ri Ri released the NSFW video in full … and as you can see above, it’s pretty insane. The storyline for this video follows fairly closely the lyrics of the song, which is plainly evident when she sings, “Shit, your wife in the backseat of my brand new foreign car“. To be honest, the video turned out much better than I expected. It’s clear Rihanna had fun with this fantasy story. Watch the video above and see if you find it just as fun and entertaining.
"I'm not a lone voice, I'm many"
This October, a documentary on the young life of Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai will be released in theaters and today we get our first look at the film’s first trailer. Those of you who are familiar with Malala and her amazing work will not be surprised at all by how inspiring she is in this doc. Those of you who are not familiar with her work absolutely MUST learn about the revolutionary things that this teenage girl has accomplished. I am not ashamed to say that I started to tear up early on while watching this 2 1/2 minute trailer and that I had tears streaming by the end. Malala Yousafzai is the kind of person that we all should aspire to emulate. This young woman stood in the face of death and not only battled back to reach the highest levels of accomplishment but she did so with love and forgiveness in her heart. I just started reading her memoir I Am Malala and I am very much looking forward to the release of this documentary film later this year. I urge you to take the time to watch this trailer and make plans to see this film when it is released in theaters. If this young woman has been able to accomplish this much at such a young age, can you imagine what she will be able to accomplish as she continues to grow and learn? I am in awe … in absolute awe of Malala Yousafzi.
Starring Michael Fassbender, Written by Aaron Sorkin
Back in May we got our first look at actor Michael Fassbender in character as Steve Jobs in the forthcoming biopic film that was directed by Danny Boyle and was written by Aaron Sorkin. As you may recall, Ashton Kutcher previously played Jobs in an earlier biopic titled Jobs that didn’t really do much of anything other than be the first Steve Jobs movie to come out after his death. As you can see above, this biopic actually looks like a serious movie that will likely find more success. Check out Fassy as Jobs and see what you think. Steve Jobs will hit theaters on October 9.
"Every punch I've ever thrown has been on my own"
Back in April we got to see the first photo from the forthcoming Rocky spin-off/sequel movie Creed and today we get to see the film’s for trailer. Creed tells the story of Apollo Creed‘s son Adonis Johnson Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan, all growed up as a fighter himself. Along the way, he connects with famed boxer Rocky Balboa, of course played by Sylvester Stallone, who trains him for greatness. The cast is bolstered by the inclusion of Phylicia Rashad as Creed‘s mother and Zoe Kravitz as his love interest. Altho this trailer doesn’t totally give me all the feels that the original Rocky movies did back in the day (particularly the excellent Rocky IV — the film where Apollo Creed was killed by the Russian Ivan Drago), I am impressed by that they managed to find a new way to keep the Rocky movie franchise going in believable (and hopefully entertaining) way. Check out the trailer for Creed and see if it looks like a film that you might like to see when it opens on November 25.
Yesterday I shared video of Kanye West performing a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen during his headline performance at The Glastonbury Festival Saturday night. Today I’d like to share video of singer/songwriter Ryan Adams performing his song Stay With Me during his Glasto performance yesterday. Ryan Adams is absolutely one of my favorite musicians of all time and this performance of Stay With Me gives some insight as to why I love him so much. I got to hear Ryan perform this song off his newish self-titled album in concert when he toured through SoCal last year and I can assure you, the song sounds even better live in person. For those of you who weren’t too fond of the Kanye video I shared, I hope this video makes up for it. Please enjoy.
We are just days away from the release of Magic Mike XXL in theaters and today we get one last movie trailer to check out before the full movie is released nationwide. New York magazine re-cut and remixed the MMXXL trailer to make it look like a trailer for a ’70s porno flick and, unsurprisingly, the parody works very well. Altho I think the sepia filter usage is a bit heavy-handed, I do applaud NY Mag for this inspired tribute to the golden age of XXX film. Check out the trailer above and see how fun MMXXL as a XXX film can be.

Rihanna may have released her new song Bitch Better Have My Money back in March and she may have performed it live during the Saturday Night Live season finale back in May but she has yet to release the music video for the track (which is due to be featured on her upcoming 8th album … which has yet to be officially announced). Last night, during The BET Awards, Ri Ri debuted the “official trailer” for the BBHMM music video and as you can see above, the forthcoming clip promises to be more than just a run-of-the-mill music video. This official trailer shows us how the action in the music video gets started but we will have to wait until the video is released to see how it all ends. Check out this BBHMM teaser video and stay tuned, Rihanna *should* be releasing the video in full … at some point soon.
'Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man',
An creative fan of both The Wizard of Oz and The Avengers: Age of Ultron came up with the brilliant idea to mash-up elements of the two movies and create a trailer for a parody film titled Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man … and it is glorious to behold. Darren Wallace is the clever chap who put this mash-up video together and as you can see above, he did an excellent job. The Tin Man as Ultron is clever … but the Cowardly Lion as Thor is absolute genius. Check out this video and see what you think. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do :)
