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 :)
Yeezus declared himself "the greatest living Rock Star on the planet"
Kanye West was the headline performer at the Glastonbury Festival in the UK last night (after many weeks of controversy, including a petition that sought to bar him from performing at Glastonbury altogether) and as part of his set, he delivered his own version of the Queen classic song Bohemian Rhapsody. His performance of this song was, I think, a bit of a love letter to the Glastonbury audience as a way to show respect for England‘s storied musical history. But Kanye couldn’t help being Kanye throughout his show stopping set, where at one point he declared from the Glastonbury stage — for all the world to hear — that he is “the greatest living Rock Star on the planet“. Oh, Kanye. Click the embed above to hear Yeezy‘s rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody and then click below to learn more about his headline set at Glastonbury. More »
At the start of this week, we got to hear and then preview the music video for Selena Gomez‘s new single Good For You (Featuring A$AP Rocky). Today we get to see the finished product. The music video for Good For You is fairly minimalistic with scenes of Selena laying on a couch, taking a shower, sitting in front of a wall, laying on the floor … you know, minimalistic. The vid is so minimal that A$AP Rocky doesn’t feature in it at all. HMMM. Have a look, see what you think. Does this video make you like the song any more or nah?
"I am telling my story"
At the start of this month, we got to see the first video promo for Caitlyn Jenner‘s upcoming docuseries I Am Cait, which will debut on E! next month. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the series and as you can see, it is packed full of heart and familial love. The promo is centered around Caitlyn explanation why she decided to do this docuseries. As you can hear from Caitlyn herself, her reasons for doing the series are very personal, sound and hopeful. And I have to say, she looks really great in this promo … primarily because she looks so damn happy. Click below to get a new look at I Am Cait. More »
"This ruling will strengthen all of our communities by offering to all loving same-sex couples the dignity of marriage across this great land."
Not long after the US Supreme Court handed down their landmark decision earlier today legalizing same-sex marriage here in the US, President Barack Obama delivered a speech applauding the decision and giving his remarks on the momentous occasion. For years, President Obama has advocated for the advancement of equal rights for all US citizens and this speech is a culmination of the remarks he has delivered as our nation’s leader.
