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.
Can we all agree that Sia makes fantastic music videos? Good. Because the world is about to be obsessed with her new one. We got to hear the audio track to her upcoming single “Alive” back in September, but really nothing could have prepared us for the awesomeness of this music video, starring a 9-year-old Japanese child star, Mahiro Takano. Wearing the same black and blonde wig featured in the audio video, Mahiro gives us some seriously awesome martial arts moves in a big abandoned room, while Sia’s voice reminds you why she’s such a big deal.

There were a lot of fun moments at the 2015 Country Music Awards on Wednesday night, but my favorite has to be the duo performance by Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton, billed as “The Nashville sound meets the soul of Memphis.” These two simply rocked it hard, sharing vocals on Stapleton’s song “Tennessee Whiskey” and Timberlake’s “Drink You Away.” I’m not the biggest fan of country music, but I have to say I was totally jamming to this. Plus, I do love me some JT at any time. Watch above! Stapleton was the surprising big winner at the CMAs, taking home the New Artist of the Year, Best Male Vocalist, and Album of the Year for Traveller. Click for more winners and highlights!
Sure it’s grainy, but hey! It’s still a first look! As you’ll recall, Benedict Cumberbatch is taking Marvel to the next level with the upcoming superhero movie, Doctor Strange. Okay, so you could argue that Guardians of the Galaxy took it to the next level, but Doctor Strange is going to be a whole different kind of movie. Thing are still being kept pretty tightly under-wraps, but one enterprising fan was able to sneak a photo from the movie’s set in Nepal and post it on Twitter. More »
If for some reason you’ve forgotten, presidential candidate–and noted narcissist–Donald Trump will be hosting this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, with musical guest Sia. And if these promos are any indication, he really wants to come off as funny and likable. Umm, sure. Joined by Cecily Strong, in her best professional looking ensemble, Donald makes jokes about how great he is, the FCC regulations and how he’s shopping around for a vice president by promising it to both Cecily and Jay Pharoah. Really, Cecily is doing all the work in these promos, which is how I assume the show itself will be. Will you be tuning in to find out?
Marvel badass Deadpool (aka Ryan Reynolds) has no time for monkeying around. If he needs to assemble a squad to crack heads, he needs it PRONTO! But when he gathers a bunch of kids dressed as their favorite Marvel superheroes on Halloween, so they could “all join forces,” he was less than impressed with their superpower skills. “How many of you have taken a human life?” Deadpool asked. Crickets… Check out the video!
