Singer Lana Del Rey has seemingly nailed the essence of director Tim Burton’s BIG EYES with her song from the upcoming release. “Big Eyes,” is just one of the two sultry sounds of hers to grace the film’s soundtrack. The other, “I Can Fly,” plays over the film’s end credits.Read More »
You guys, Anna Kendrick is really crushing it right now.
After you see her exercise those golden pipes of hers again (remember when her voice blew us away in PITCH PERFECT?) in INTO THE WOODS, you’ll be able to catch her in another musical, THE LAST FIVE YEARS, playing Cathy, a jilted lover. The film adaptation Jason Robert Brown’s off-Broadway musical chronicles the rise and fall of a relationship from two different perspectives. Nothing short of ambitious, Cathy’s point of view starts at the end of the relationship and rewinds from there, while Jamie (Jeremy Jordan) sings in a more linear format – from beginning to end.
Where do we sign to put this in our eyeballs immediately?
THE LAST FIVE YEARS hits theaters on February 15.Read More »
As Anna Kendrick’s Cinderella descends the palace staircase, she freezes time and sings a beautiful ballad about being caught “unawares” by the Prince’s affection, attention and well, sticky tar. Caught in pitch, she’s never out of it…as you’ll soon see when you watch this clip from director Rob Marshall’s cinematic adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s INTO THE WOODS. Fans of the stage iteration will notice how Marshall stages the number a bit differently than in productions past. It’s one of the film’s multitude of bewitching musical numbers.
INTO THE WOODS opens on December 25.Read More »
Music can make or break a film. And in the case of director Ava DuVernay’s SELMA, it augments the already soul-stirring narrative. The drama takes a peek at a sliver of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, when he led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. It’s a story of a movement that will not fail to move you. John Legend and Common’s song “Glory,” plays over the end credits of the film and hits home MLK Jr.’s powerful messages on non-violent protest. Providing solace as the audience’s tears well and fall, the song is truly beautiful in its gospel.
SELMA opens in select theaters December 25, 2014 and opens wide on January 9, 2015.Read More »
Though I may not totally remember what exactly happened when we last saw California’s ex-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in a TERMINATOR film (and let’s NOT talk about the last Schwarzenegger-less installment) , you can sure as shit bet I will be all over his latest, TERMINATOR GENISYS. No, it’s not just because my fiancee Jai Courtney is in this film. It’s because I’m a gigantic fan of the first two TERMINATOR films. And from what I’ve read, fans can be sure the filmmakers have kept us in mind when crafting the latest chapter in the saga. Today, though, is a new day and we get to talk about the kick-ass teaser trailer at our water coolers. Peep the above and get ready for goosebumps.
Set to Jetta’s “I’d Love To Change The World,” the trailer looks like the highly anticipated film will be a combo platter of the first and second TERMINATOR films we all hold so near and dear to our hearts. Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-Hun Lee, and JK Simmons (who is currently tearing it up in WHIPLASH) also star.
TERMINATOR GENISYS opens on July 1, 2015.Read More »
Though I’m not the biggest fan of Mike Binder’s films (REIGN OVER ME, THE UPSIDE OF ANGER), I do admire how much heart, passion and genuine sentiment he manages to infuse into his films. His latest offering, BLACK OR WHITE, looks to have the same positive qualities. The drama about a grandfather fighting for custody of his granddaughter looks like it’s gonna pull all our heartstrings.
Here’s the official synposis:
BLACK OR WHITE is the story of a grandfather (Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner) who is suddenly left to care for his beloved granddaughter. When the little girl’s paternal grandmother (Academy Award® nominee Octavia Spencer) seeks custody, a legal battle ensues that forces the families to confront their true feelings on race, forgiveness and understanding. Anchored by an all-star cast and based on real events, the movie is a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white.
With an pretty strong supporting ensemble, including Jennifer Ehle, Gillian Jacobs and Anthony Mackie, we’re pretty sure seeing this is going to start off our 2015 on the right foot. Plus, the little girl (Jillan Estell) looks absolutely adorable.
BLACK OR WHITE opens in LA for an awards qualifying run starting on December 3. It opens wide on January 30.Read More »
Much to our delight a few days ago, CINDERELLA’s wicked stepmother’s character poster made a grand entrance onto the interwebs. Today, we’re seeing two more beautiful creations.
Maybe it’s just me, but doesn’t Helena Bonham Carter look fantastic as a blonde? It’s also great to see her embrace full-tilt glamour for her magical role. The detail in Sandy Powell’s costume design is simply breathtaking. Light, poofy, silver-lined iridescence; that is every little girl’s dream.
And speaking of dreams…. Check out Prince Charming, Robb Stark Richard Madden!
Swooooon! Cinderella’s dress looks like Mariah Carey’s dream gown – all those butterflies and plunging neckline.
CINDERELLA opens on March 13.
