"This is more than just malice"
A clip of footage from the Disney adaptation of Into The Woods has been released that shows us a portion of Anna Kendrick‘s performance of the song On the Steps of the Palace, which you can see above. We already know that Anna Kendrick can sing because she was pretty terrific in Pitch Perfect but I’m curious to see how she is in this full-on musical production movie. Check out the clip above and see a tiny bit of Into The Woods before it hits theaters on Xmas day.

Last night my good friend Tammy invited me to attend the Warner Bros. holiday party at Good Times and Davey Wayne’s last night and I happily attended. It had been some time since I last saw Tammy so I was really more excited to see her than anything else … tho, the promise of alcoholic snow cones did have its own appeal. Davey Wayne’s is a really fun ’70s themed bar so I knew the part was going to be really fun. I got to hang out with my friend and I got to get slushed on snow cones so, yeah, it was a pretty fun night. More »

From the episode 'I Won't Be Home For Christmas'
Fox has just released the couch gag video for The Simpsons holiday episode I Won’t Be Home For Christmas and it’s a veritable work of absolute genius. The whole opening credits video has been Xmasified entirely (love the quick shout out to the Hindu god Vishnu) and the couch gag part at the end has been devoted to Frozen, naturally. It’s effing brilliant, is what it is. Check it out above and fall in love.

Yes, a cover of Mariah Carey's Xmas song
Fifth Harmony, the all girl pop group that came out of The X Factor here in the US, has just released a music video for their cover version of Mariah Carey‘s massive holiday pop hit All I Want For Christmas Is You. As you can see/hear above, the Fifth Harmony ladies stick pretty close to the original version of the song even as they try to infuse a bit of their personalities into the music video. Now, I’m sure hearing about Fifth Harmony‘s video for this song has reminded you of Mariah‘s iffy performance of All I Want live on national television this week so in order to keep you on topic, you can click below to hear Fifth Harmony perform All I Want For Christmas Is You LIVE at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington DC this week.

Coming January 17
Yesterday we got to see a batch of really great promo photos from the forthcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie about the life of Whitney Houston. Today we get to see the just-released trailer for Whitney. As you can see above, this trailer already looks better than any biopic movie that Lifetime has already released this year so in that regard, it’s already a winner. I had a feeling having Angela Bassett in the director’s chair would elevate this TV movie to higher ground. It’s obviously too soon to tell judging solely from one trailer but I already love what I see, do you? Whitney will premiere on Lifetime on January 17.
Coming January 11
Last month we got our first look at the forthcoming second season of the HBO series Looking and today we get a second, longer look. The network has just released a first official trailer for Looking season 2 that shows us actual scenes from the show, giving us our first taste of the drama to come. New boyfriends, love triangles and hot tubs. Yep, it looks like Looking is coming back for more of the same. The new season of Looking will premiere on HBO on Sunday January 11.

Britney, Whitney, Kelis & more!
A little while back there was a report buzzing around that Ariana Grande and Jessie J were preparing to remake Brandy and Monica‘s 1998 hit The Boy is Mine. Thankfully, this is no longer happening. PITNB Intern Iris decided to create an official list of other songs that should never, ever be remade. Ever. Singers, artists—we get it. You love a song, and you wanna show the world how much you love it, so you do a remake. Producers and managers knwo everyone will want to listen—either to hate it, or fall in love with it. But no. No! Some tracks really are sacred and exist solely that we may enjoy them as they are. For these 12 songs, tributes are fine—remakes are unnecessary, and blasphemous. So spaketh Iris.

Yes, Arnold says "I'll be back"
In August we learned the title, in October we got our first look at the characters, yesterday we saw the motion poster and today — we get to see the first trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Terminator: Genisys. As you can see above, Genisys looks more like a retelling of the Terminator origin story rather than an actual sequel … tho, it would appear that the plot is open enough for interpretation to make an argument that this is a sequel. I dunno. The trailer looks much better than I was anticipating so that’s the good news. Terminator: Genisys will open in theaters next summer. Does it look like something you’re dying to see?
