"I'm scared ..."
Oh man … when I first learned that Will Ferrell and Kirsten Wiig were starring in a Lifetime made-for-TV movie titled A Deadly Adoption, I had a feeling it would be something that I would have to see. The short teaser trailer we got last week looked promising but the just-released extended trailer embedded above proves it … THIS MOVIE IS A MUST-SEE. What do you get when you mix Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Lowndes in a schlocky television drama? You get pure gold, apparently. OMG, I can’t believe how excited I am to watch this mess. A Deadly Adoption premieres on Lifetime next Saturday, June 20.
"Auditioning for Janet feels like a dream fantasy"
Earlier today we learned that Janet Jackson has formally announced that her Unbreakable World Tour will kick off in August of this year and the first round of concert dates went on pre-sale at 10AM local time today. Right now, we get to see video that was filmed over the course of dancer auditions for The Unbreakable Tour. You may recall that we saw that cute photo of Janet making her way into dance rehearsals for her tour at the end of May, so this video was probably filmed around that time. Click below and have a look and see some of the faces we may be seeing on tour with Janet Jackson later this year. More »
Coming June 19
Last week I was able to see an early screening of the new movie Dope and, as you may recall, I really, really liked it a lot. The movie won’t open nationally until June 19 but today we have a new NSFW red band trailer that gives a look at the movie before it opens. Be warned, the language is very strong in this trailer but it does give a sense of what the movie is like. That said, the movie is much funnier, much smarter and much more serious than is shown in this 2 minute video. Have a look above, see what you think. Dope will be in theaters next Friday.

Where's the beef?
See, I don’t really watch sports on TV with any regularity but there are those times when something so significant to the world of pop culture happens during a sporting event that even I have to take notice and blog about it. During the nationally televised NBA Finals basketball game that aired on ABC last night, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers was filmed adjusting himself and accidentally flashed his penis for all the world to see. The moment was captured by pretty much every single person who watched the game and owns a cell phone so there is lots of footage of LeBron‘s manhood to evaluate. For the sake of the on-going discussion of pop culture that we engage in daily here on Pink is the new Blog, I present to you below fairly NSFW video footage of LeBron James‘s penis flash on national television.

1 Week to Go!
Back in March we learned the very exciting news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar has joined her husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. as part of the cast of the Disney XD animated series Star Wars: Rebels. Today, we get to check out the video teaser above that reminds us (!) that Star Wars: Rebels season 2 premieres in one week (!!!). As you may recall, we saw a 3+ minute long trailer for the entirety of SW: Rebels season 2 earlier this year which makes it seem like Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones, of course) will be featured heavily on the show. Vader is also featured pretty prominently in this teaser for the season 2 premiere episode, The Siege of Lothal … but we really do not know how much Darth Vader we will be getting this season. All will be revealed soon, tho, as Star Wars: Rebels premieres with a 1 hour episode on Saturday June 20. If you are a Star Wars fan, this is an animated series you should be watching. And if you are any kind of Buffy fan at all, you’ll deff want to tune in to hear SMG voice one of the characters on the show :)

"I saw you start the fire"
Just about a month ago we learned that Veruca Salt is releasing a new album titled Ghost Notes next month when they released a couple of new songs, including their single Laughing in the Sugar Bowl. Today we get to see the just-released music video for Laughing and as you can see and hear, the Salts are back with a vengeance. For the most part, this new music video is mostly a performance video but it reminds me very much of the group’s first music video for their smash hit song Seether back in 1993. Check out the video for Laughing in the Sugar Bowl and be reminded what a force to be reckoned with Veruca Salt is as a rock band. I am SO excited for the release of their new album. This song is so effing great!
June 20, yes for real
Last week we learned the surprising news that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig will be starring in a ridiculous made-for-TV movie on Lifetime this month titled A Deadly Adoption and today we get to feast our eyes on the FIRST TRAILER for the TV movie. Based on a true story, A Deadly Adoption is described as “a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hope of adopting her unborn child” … and then, I’m assuming, MAYHEM STRIKES! When this TV movie was revealed last week, many people believed that it was a hoax of some kind … and maybe it is a hoax … but it is also a real TV movie that will premiere on Lifetime on June 20. Check out the teaser trailer above and see if it looks like something you’d like to watch. I am definitely going to tune in, I can’t wait :D
Coming in 2016
After they gave us Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen and Big Hero 6, Disney will be giving us a new animated feature film next year titled Zootopia. In an effort to explain what Zootopia is all about, the teaser video embedded above has been released for our viewing pleasure. At first brush, this movie looks cute but I’m not yet wowed by what I see. That said, I wasn’t really wowed at all by the first teaser videos for Inside Out and now all I hear are rave reviews so … I’ll definitely reserve judgement here. Check out the teaser for Zootopia above and see what you think. The movie will open in theaters on March 4, 2016.
