I’ve seen a lot of great things on the internet today (hey Matt Bomer talking about his junk). And yet none of them are as fantastic as Emma Stone just having the best time ever dancing like no one is watching in the new music video for Will Butler‘s “Anna”. Sure you can watch the official version of “Anna”, but isn’t Emma Stone dancing around the Queen Mary way more fun? I think so. She and the crew put on quite a dance show, thanks to choreography from Ryan Heffington (the man behind Sia’s “Chandelier” dance) and her general fantasticalness. And yes, I am definitely getting a little bit of Mia Wallace from her. So now Will Butler has gotten both Emma and her boyfriend Andrew Garfield in his music videos. (Remember, Andrew was in Arcade Fire‘s “We Exist”.) Now we just need to get them both in the same video. Imagine the dance moves! But enough from me, watch Emma having a wonderful time above. Should we join her?
Remember when we first got to hear “No Doubt About It” and it was fantastic? Well things are about to get even more fantastic, because now we’ve got a music video for the track from Empire. It’s fun, we get to see the songs in the context of the show (sing out, Jamal!), then enjoy them slightly removed from that. In this case Jussie Smollett and and Pitbull are giving one intense dance party with sexy ladies, a dip in the pool and even a tiger. Now that is a party, no doubt about it! Oh god, that pun was terrible, I’ll show myself out now.
The good folks at Screen Junkies have done it again. And by “it” I mean taking something you loved as a child, say Peter Pan or Toy Story, and making you question every single thing about it with their Honest Trailers. Their latest victim? Disney’s classic, Aladdin. Or perhaps it should be renamed The Genie, because as the they point out, Aladdin is a really boring character compared to Robin Williams‘ hilarious creation. His “nonstop improvised riffing that made him everybody’s favorite part of the film, and every Disney animator’s worst nightmare.” Things really get interesting when you take a deeper look at the songs, too. “One Jump Ahead”? That’s just a song about how it’s okay to steal. “Prince Ali”? Skip it and take your kids to pee. Or how about the classic “A Whole New World”? I’m going to let you guys experience what that’s actually about when you watch the Honest Trailer above. It’s okay Aladdin, this won’t ruin how much I love you. Probably.

Don't worry, not a real spoiler.
Don’t worry, that’s not an actual spoiler. That’s the premise of James Franco‘s latest sketch from Making a Scene: Jon Snow, Wedding Planner. He’s like Jennifer Lopez, but without the Matthew McConaughey. James and the gang give Game of Thrones a totally new, mockumentary type feel as we watch Jon Snow finally live his dream. “I couldn’t take anymore death and destruction. Or dragons,” he explained, “I retired from the Night’s Watch. I forsook my vows and have decided to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a wedding planner. I plan the most spectacular weddings in the realm.” Well, that’s one way to spend your time, Jon Snow. More »
Don't unfollow them...or else
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has teamed up with YouTube favorite Todrick Hall for a hilarious music video called “You Unfollowed Me.” It’s basically Mean Girls but if they had Twitter and Instagram. Joseph and Todrick get dressed up in drag to record a music video about two girls whose boyfriends unfollowed them on social media. Of course, that doesn’t go over so well. In the clip, we see the guys rocking some serious wig action and showing off their legs in some short skirts. Watch above! This is a whole new side of Joseph and we want MORE!
Also, this movie looks visually stunning
We’ve been hearing about Disney’s newest animated feature Moana since all the way back in December of 2013. And now not only do we get some brand new artwork surrournding the sure to be awesome movie, we also get to meet 14-year-old Auli’i Cravalho of Oahu, the lucky girl who gets to put her own spin on the newest Disney princess. “From baby time to now, I wanted to be a Disney princess,” Auli’i told People Magazine, “and then I wanted to be a singer or an actress.” She caught the eye of an Oahu casting agent after singing in a charity competition and before she knew it she was off to Los Angeles and cast opposite Dwayne Johnson. So now she gets to be a princess, who acts and sings! More »

Hallelujah! Trevor Noah criticized Republicans who claim to be pro-life yet are impartial to gun laws on last night’s The Daily Show. I don’t know about you, but I’m still mourning the loss of Jon Stewart. However, Trevor sure is filling in those shoes pretty well. During the show, Trevor pointed out how radical the party’s pro-lifers are when it comes to talk about abortion. Trevor used a clip where Carly Fiorina trashed Planned Parenthood by using ridiculous “facts” to prove her point. The segment also showed clips from Jeb Bush defending his pro-life stance with a contrast clip of him being unconcerned with the Oregon shooting because you know, “stuff happens”. In the bit, Noah said “They just need to have a superhero’s total dedication to life. Right now they’re more like comic book collectors. Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package, and then it’s worth nothing.” Touche, Trevor. I look forward to more mockery of the wacky circus that is politics.
Remember earlier when we told you you’d probably cry over The Good Dinosaur trailer? Sorry, but we’re about to make you cry once again with Bindi Irwin‘s super gorgeous performance from Dancing With The Stars last night. This week DWTS theme was “Most Memorable Year,” and Bindi decided to dedicate a contemporary dance performance to her father, Steve Irwin, in this case played by Derek Hough. I’m just thinking about the dance and I’m starting to tear up. I suggest grabbing a tissue before you watch it. More »
And if for some reason the trailer doesn’t make you cry, don’t worry! The movie probably will. The latest trailer for Disney and Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur hit the web today, giving us a new thing to look forward to come Thanksgiving. If you’ll recall, the movie asks the question, “What if the asteroid that destroyed the dinosaurs missed?” We spend the movie wandering the prehistoric landscape with Arlo, who finds himself a friend in Spot. The movie starts off with a Lion King-esque premise–don’t worry, not a spoiler, it’s in the trailer–but soon becomes it’s own beautifully animated beast. The trailer will make you laugh, cry and wonder whose voices you are hearing. This one is definitely more interesting that the first trailer we saw back in July. So do Disney and Pixar have another hit with this one? Of course they do.
“The Bold and the Lyrical”
On Monday’s episode of The Late Late Show, James Corden had Julianne Moore and Fuller House‘s John Stamos act out a scene from a soap opera using nothing but Taylor Swift lyrics. The “Bold and the Lyrical” tells the story of Juliette Moore and James Cordone including lines from the Taylor’s hits like “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space” and “I Knew You Were Trouble. At one point, Julianne quotes “Someone Like You,” with the host calling her out on the mistake, saying: “I think that’s Adele. Good song though!” More »
