This October, a documentary on the young life of Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai will be released in theaters and today we get our first look at the film’s first trailer. Those of you who are familiar with Malala and her amazing work will not be surprised at all by how inspiring she is in this doc. Those of you who are not familiar with her work absolutely MUST learn about the revolutionary things that this teenage girl has accomplished. I am not ashamed to say that I started to tear up early on while watching this 2 1/2 minute trailer and that I had tears streaming by the end. Malala Yousafzai is the kind of person that we all should aspire to emulate. This young woman stood in the face of death and not only battled back to reach the highest levels of accomplishment but she did so with love and forgiveness in her heart. I just started reading her memoir I Am Malala and I am very much looking forward to the release of this documentary film later this year. I urge you to take the time to watch this trailer and make plans to see this film when it is released in theaters. If this young woman has been able to accomplish this much at such a young age, can you imagine what she will be able to accomplish as she continues to grow and learn? I am in awe … in absolute awe of Malala Yousafzi.
Back in May, Prince and his new band 3rd Eye Girl released a song titled Baltimore that was written and released in support of racial tension that erupted on their streets due to police brutality and abuse of power. Today we get to hear a new song from Prince and 3rd Eye Girl that has been released for an entirely different reason … a very sexy reason. The new song featured below is titled HardRockLover and it sounds very much like the sexier Prince that used to reign supreme in the ’80s and early ’90s. It’s unknown if this song, as well as the other new music (HERE and HERE) that Prince has been performing on tour lately, will be released on a new album but any new music is good news to me. Click below to hear HardRockLover in full. More »
In spite of the very good news we heard earlier today that Back to The Future will NEVER get a remake for as long as Robert Zemeckis lives, we learn right now that Fox is planning a television series remake of the 1987 thriller Fatal Attraction.

Read on for all the known gory details. More »

Ant-Man won’t storm theaters until July 17 but this week, the cast and crew of the movie made their way to the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA for the LA premiere of the film. Leading the way was Paul Rudd in a fetching maroon suit, joined by his co-stars Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas and more. As a huge Marvel Comics fan, I cannot even tell you how excited I am to see this movie. Ant-Man plays a very integral part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the final movie of Phase Two, looking forward to Phase Three of the MCU movies. I keep hearing things about the movie that I am desperately trying to avoid … mainly because I don’t want to have the movie spoiled before I get to see it for myself. There is nothing spoilery at all about the photos featured in this gallery, so please enjoy. Ant-Man will hit theaters in just over 2 weeks, it shant be long now.

Last night, I met up with my friend Tamar for a night hike in Griffith Park so that we could pay a visit to the observatory to see a celestial event. The planets Venus and Jupiter aligned last night to look like a “twin star”, which is a feat that happens very rarely. We hiked up to the observatory at dusk so that we could see the planets as night set. After we spent some time admiring the view, I made my way home … where I was met with a surprise visit from my friend Jessie … who brought me a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup donut, right to my doorstep. Needless to say, I had a very nice night. More »
Back in May we got our first look at actor Michael Fassbender in character as Steve Jobs in the forthcoming biopic film that was directed by Danny Boyle and was written by Aaron Sorkin. As you may recall, Ashton Kutcher previously played Jobs in an earlier biopic titled Jobs that didn’t really do much of anything other than be the first Steve Jobs movie to come out after his death. As you can see above, this biopic actually looks like a serious movie that will likely find more success. Check out Fassy as Jobs and see what you think. Steve Jobs will hit theaters on October 9.
In the wake of seemingly unending news regarding remakes of movies like Ghostbusters, The Crow, Sister Act, Point Break, Kindergarten Cop, The Birds (UGH!) and on and on and on comes AMAZING news about a possible remake of Back to the Future — THAT THERE WILL NEVER BE ONE! Producer Robert Zemeckis was recently asked about the possibility of a Back to the Future remake anytime in the future and his immediate answer was Oh God, no. According to Zemeckis, there can never be a BTTF remake without his and colleague Bob Gale‘s approval … which they promise they will never give as long as they live. Then, after they die, he hopes their estastes will fend off any remake plans for as long as possible. Soooo, yeah, Robert Zemeckis is my new hero. More »
