Just 2 Days Away from more 'OITNB'

The video embedded above features footage and cast interviews which are meant to remind us that OITNB is BACK in just 2 days. 2 short days. Are you ready? Check out the video above and GET READY. OMG, I can’t wait. Can you?
For the first time outside of the Museum of Modern Art
Last weekend we got to see Björk‘s inventive music video for Stonemilker, taken from her new album Vulnicura. Today we get to see, in full, the music video for her song Black Lake. As you may recall, a portion of the Black Lake music video was released in a trailer back in February to promote the Museum of Modern Art‘s exhibit on Björk and her art in NYC. Until now, the full Black Lake video was only available to those who attended the Björk exhibit at the MoMA. I’ve already watched this video a couple of times and it is just … wonderful. You definitely have to check it out … it may be the best 10 minutes of your day.
Coming in 2016
Back in 2002 we got Barbershop, in 2004 we got Barbershop 2: Back In Business. In 2016, we will finally get the long awaited sequel Barbershop 3 with both old and new faces thrown into the mix. Actor Ice Cube is giving us our first look at the filming of Barbershop 3 with the promo video embedded above. As you can see, Nicki Minaj is among the new faces joining the cast this time around and if the earlier two movies are any indication, then this third film is going to be a lot of fun. It’s been a very long time since I’ve seen either Barbershop or Barbershop 2 so I’ll have to rewatch them both again. Keep your eyes peeled, Barbershop 3 is coming our way next year. You excited?
Oh and Pitbull, too
Jennifer Lopez, WHO MAY OR MAY NOT BE COLLABORATING ON NEW MUSIC WITH MISSY ELLIOTT RIGHT NOW BUT WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE EVEN THO THE LADIES *ARE* HANGING OUT TOGETHER THESE DAYS, is really having a moment right now. In recent weeks, she paid beautiful homage to Selena Quintanilla at the Billboard Latin Music Awards, she slayed the red carpet at the MET Ball Gala, she announced her forthcoming concert residency in Las Vegas, she guests on Jason Derulo‘s new song Try Me and — of course — there are those hints that she may be collaborating on new music with Missy Elliott. Today we see that J. Lo is featured in the music video for Prince Royal‘s new single Back It Up. I can’t say that I’m at all familiar with Prince Royce but as you can see and hear above, Jennifer‘s guest appearance in this video makes it a million times better (even if we have to deal with a guest appearance by Mr. Worldwide himself Pitbull). Check out the embed above and have a look at/listen of Prince Royce‘s collaboration with Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull and see what you think. Does this song sound like it could be a contender for the Song of the Summer?
Undercover in The A.V. Club
Actress and sometime pop star Leighton Meester paid a visit to The A.V. Club to perform live in their Undercover series where artists are asked to perform cover songs from a predetermined list. Leighton and her band decided to perform a cover of the 1996 song Lovefool by The Cardigans (made famous by its inclusion on the soundtrack for Romeo + Juliet, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes). Leighton released her debut album Heartstrings last year and enjoyed a pretty decent hit with Cobra Starship with their song Good Girls Gone Bad back in 2009 … so she’s been an elusive chanteuse for some time now. I love this song and I surprisingly enjoy Leighton‘s cover. I know some of you are fans of this song so I think you’ll enjoy this cover … and for those of you who aren’t familiar with Lovefool or The Cardigans, I urge you to check them out. Also, keep an eye out for Leighton‘s baby bump in this performance video. She should be birthing her baby with husband
Seth Cohen Adam Brody sometime this year. Enjoy!!
"Turn your weapons to the capital"
Back in March we got to see the first teaser video for the final Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay – Part 2, which hits theaters at the end of this year. In April, we got to see the latest promo poster for the film. Today, at long last, we get our FIRST LOOK at the first footage from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 with the release of the first movie trailer. Everything that we’ve seen in the previous Hunger Games movies has led up to this final film. I literally got goosebumps listening to Jennifer Lawrence‘s voice-over in this trailer. When she marches into the capital and says, “Turn your weapons to the capital” my heart stopped. There are lots of really great scenes in this first trailer for Mockingjay – Part 2, check it out and freak out with me, won’t you? The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opens in theaters on November 20.
"In my mind I think of [Genisys] as the third film."
Back in April, we got our first look at the second trailer for Terminator: Genisys which reveals a MAJOR plot twist for the entire Terminator movie franchise (I shall refrain from discussing this plot twist for those of you who wish to remain unspoiled). When that trailer was released, I have to admit that my concern over the quality of this new Terminator movie amped up (my fear is that the twist might be too gimmicky). Today we hear from director James Cameron, the man who created both Terminator and T2: Judgement Day, about his thoughts about the film. In the video featured below, Cameron makes clear that he has absolutely no involvement with the creation of this movie and he merely watched it as a “fanboy”. As you can hear below, James loved what he saw in this movie … so much, in fact, that he considers Terminator: Genisys to be the “real” third Terminator movie (ignoring Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator 4: Salvation).

"OK, that one big cookie!"
In the past couple of months, we’ve seen really fun parody videos from Sesame Street that have parodied The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Game of Thrones (which are only the most recent of their brilliant parody videos). Today we get to see their latest offering, a spoof of Jurassic World titled Jurassic Cookie. As you can see above, this parody video probably looks a bit more like a parody of Jurassic Park but with the new movie coming out this week, let’s just go with a Jurassic World parody. The premise of this video is simple … Cookie Monster comes up with the brilliant idea to take a little piece of cookie, found in zillion-year old rock, and turns it into a BIG cookie for a super duper theme park … and then, of course, delicious mayhem ensues. I really, really love all of these Sesame Street parody videos. Nothing makes you feel like a kid again more than the release of a parody video that is supposedly made for kids but is clearly intended for adults. This one is fun, check it out.
"Help is only 140 million miles away"
This November, Ridley Scott will release his film adaptation of the Andy Weir novel The Martian that stars Matt Damon as an astronaut/botanist who gets stranded on Mars after a NASA mission goes bad. The story sounds simple enough but when you watch the just-released first trailer, you really get a feel for how intense the story can be. Ridley Scott is responsible for some of the greatest movies ever made (Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, etc.) so I have faith that The Martian will not disappoint. I like what I see in this first trailer which gives a nice overview of the story without showing us too much of the actual movie. In addition to Matt Damon, The Martian also stars Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels and, randomly, Kristen Wiig (who is really surprising us this year with the movie projects she will be appearing in). The Martian opens on November 25, are you in?
