Trailer #2 drops on 11/14
The ridiculous new convention of releasing teaser videos for movie trailers continues today with the just-released teaser for the forthcoming second trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, which will hit theaters on Valentine’s Day next February. As you may recall, we got the first trailer for Fifty Shades back in July so the time has come for the second trailer, which will be released next week on November 14. You will also recall that we learned last week that Grey will feature NO FULL FRONTAL NUDE SCENES of Jamie Dornan so … what’s even the point of still promoting this movie that will probably turn out to be a huge Meh-fest. EVEN STILL, check out the teaser above and … I dunno … try to get excited?
From the soundtrack to 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'
In late September, we got our first listen of Lorde‘s new song Yellow Flicker Beat, which is featured on the soundtrack that she curated for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. With the movie opening in theaters in just a few weeks, the time has come for Lorde to release the music video for the song. Click above to watch the video for Yellow Flicker Beat in full. I, personally, love the song very much and really enjoy this video. Lorde busts out her trademark dance moves, as you can see, and looks stylishly slick. It’s a great video for an amazing song.
First week album sales got Taylor Swift like ...
Earlier today we learned that Taylor Swift managed to sell 1.2 million copies of her new album 1989 in its first week of release and right now, we get to sew how she celebrated her latest accomplishment. Inspired by the fact that rapper Kendrick Lamar is a fan of her song Shake It Off, Taylor posted a video on her official Instagram profile of her lip-syncing along to Kendrick‘s song BackSeat Freestyle. Says Taylor, “Industry experts predicted 1989 would sell 650k first week. You went and bought 1.287 million albums. AND IT’S GOT ME LIKE”. Celebrate your achievement, girl, you earned it.
"If you want to keep me ..."
Last month we got to check out the lyric video for Ariana Grande‘s collaborative song with The Weeknd Love Me Harder and today we get to check out the just released music video for the song. I think Ariana is at her best when she’s collaborating with another artist (like, for example, her song Break Free with Zedd) because Love Me Harder, I feel, is one of her better songs. The moody video, shot in a surprisingly well-lit abandoned warehouse, isn’t all that spectacular but I love the song and I love seeing these two artists together on screen. I like the video, I love the song. What do you think?
Meet Kevin, Stuart and Bob
Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for the upcoming animated prequel film Minions based on those cute little yellow creatures that were introduced in the Steve Carrell film Despicable Me. As you may know, Minions was originally scheduled for release this holiday season but it was pushed back to a summer 2015 release instead. While I thought the minions were cute in Despicable Me, I have felt for a long time that they were just a rip-off of the cute alien creatures that were introduced in Disney/Pixar‘s Toy Story movies. BUT, I’ve since learned an appreciation for the minions and I consider myself a fan now. My guess is that if you have kids, or even if you’re a grown ass adult, you like the minions too so … check out the trailer above and see what is coming our way on July 10, 2015.

In the past week or so, we got to feast our eyes on TWO (yes, TWO) trailers (HERE and HERE) for the forthcoming superhero sequel spectacular The Avengers: Age of Ultron … so we are very lucky humans. BUT, did it occur to you that the trailers could have ended … better? Well, worry not, an industrious fan put together a video that shows how the trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended … and you can watch it in full above. Enjoy.
It was recently reported that the release date for Nicki Minaj‘s new album The Pink Print has been delayed to December but that just means Nicki has more time to promote the album’s release. Nicki just posted a pair of new promo videos on her official Instagram profile in support of The Pink Print which you can watch below. More »
The Holiday Broadway Musical Event
About a month ago, we got to check out new promo images of Allison Williams and Christopher Walken in character as Peter Pan and Captain Hook respectively as they will appear in the upcoming NBC holiday broadway musical event Peter Pan Live!, which will air on the network live on December 4. Today we get to see the first promo video for the musical special. This video is not really a trailer, per se, as it features more behind the scenes footage from the promo photoshoots but it does give us our first look at the actors in character, in real life. Personally, I’m still not at all impressed with what we’ve seen of Peter Pan Live! but, to be fair, we really haven’t seen much so … I’ll reserve judgement. What do you think?

Coming in 2018 & 2019
Yesterday we learned that Marvel Studios is planning to release 9 superhero movies over the next 5 years culminating in a two-part Avengers movie event titled Infinity War. At the press event yesterday, an announcement video was screened for Avengers: Infinity War Parts I and II which you can watch in full above. The video features footage from the Marvel movies that have already been released cut together to tease the forthcoming new set of movies, which is cool I guess, but the clip culminates in footage of the villainous Thanos brandishing the Infinity Gauntlet with all 6 infinity stones. War is coming to the cinematic Marvel universe and we are SO not ready for it … so, thankfully, we have until 2018 and 2019 to get ready. Check out the announcement video for Avengers: Infinity War above and see what you think.
