Happy Friday Coldplay fans! The band surprised everyone with the announcement that they are releasing their seventh, and rumored to be “final” album, A Head Full Of Dreams, next month. December 4th to be exact. Guests on the record include Beyoncé, Tove Lo, Noel Gallagher, and more! But that’s not all, the band also dropped the album’s first single, “Adventure of a Lifetime,” and it’s definitely not the sound we’re used to. Coldplay are back with a sparky, disco-influenced new sound! More »
Adele performed her record-breaking single, “Hello,” for the first time for her BBC special, Adele At The BBC. And it obviously comes to no surprise that her performance was basically perfect! It’s been three years coming, but she has finally answered all our prayers. There’s an epic BBC clip out already of her exclusive performance on The Graham Norton Show, and we just can’t stop watching it! She also confessed that she’s not allowed to drunk tweet anymore — but that’s another story. More »

Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. You guys! There’s so much new stuff! Now, I’m not saying that the trailer we got a couple of weeks ago wasn’t one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen, but I am saying that I might appreciate this Japanese trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens more. Probably because it gives us more story tidbits. Oh, and of course because it gave me chills and made me cry. This trailer gives us way more from Daisy Ridley‘s Rey (she knows “all about waiting…for my family”–who is her family?! Luke? Leia? Han? Mon Mothma?), John Boyega‘s Finn actually gives his name and we see more of Leia, C-3PO and everyone’s future BFF, BB-8. More »
If you want the truest form of opinion, ask kids because they’ll tell you what they think no matter how sensitive the topic. So that’s what Jimmy Kimmel did! The late night host put four children together (two boys and two girls), and asked them if a woman could be president. There was a clear divide: The girls thought a female president could do just as well (or better) than a man, while the boys weren’t convinced. They expressed their divided opinions, even after Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton dropped into the discussion on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. “They’ll probably like, decorate the White House and make it all girly,” said one of the boys. “They might even paint it pink.” Watch above — some of their answers will seriously make you LOL!
There is a slight chance you might be tired of hearing about Adele, but come on you guys! The lady is currently breaking all the records and reminding us why were so obsessed with her to begin with.

As if the tearjerking documentary Amy wasn’t enough for you, Amy Winehouse‘s life story is getting major motion picture biopic treatment. And the totally badass, amazing, original Lisbeth Salander, Noomi Rapace, is in talks to star as Amy herself. The film will be written and directed by Irish filmmaker Kristen Sheridan, known for Dollhouse and August Rush. My first reaction to this news was, “I didn’t know Noomi could sing,”although who knows if she actually will in the movie. We’ve known her from her very serious roles in Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus, so I’m not used to seeing her play someone really artsy. But Amy clearly was clearly suffering in a deep and serious way, so based on her credentials I’m confident Noomi will nail the role. More »
So much for all the brouhaha about police across the country boycotting Quentin Tarantino’s films after he spoke at an anti-police brutality rally in NYC! The new trailer for his eight film, fittingly named The Hateful Eight just dropped, and while it doesn’t necessarily look better than any of his past films, IMHO, it’s still going to make a killing at the box office. Why, you ask? Um, does the name Tarantino mean anything to you? That and of course the trailer proves this film is jam packed with shoot outs, chariot chases, and that mean dialogue Quentin is known for. It’s blizzarding in post-Civil war Wyoming, and two bounty hunters collide, looking for shelter. Seems like shelter is the last thing they get. Topped off by a (typically masculine) cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Channing Tatum, Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Zoe Bell, it’s all we really could have hoped for. I feel like the boycott might get the movie more ticket sales, just by nature of any publicity is good publicity.
Disney released the first official trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass, and it’s filled with the same wonderfully kooky characters and amazing visuals as the original Tim Burton film. Loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s 1871 sequel to his classic Alice in Wonderland, Alice must return to Wonderland after a lengthy absence to save the Mad Hatter from some kind of awful fate at the hands of Time, a half-man, half-clock villain. Although Burton has handed off the directing duties to Flight of the Conchord‘s James Bobin, most of the original cast are reprising their roles, including Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, while newcomer Sacha Baron Cohen portrays the evil Time. It’s no surprise there’s a sequel to the first Alice in Wonderland. Although the critics slammed it, the movie made mondo bucks at the box office. I admit I was less than impressed, as well, but after repeated viewings (urged on by a child), I’ve grown to appreciate the original, especially Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. HILarious! Alice Through the Looking Glass enchants May 27, 2016.
