In: Donovan, Movies

Betty Boop was last seen on the big screen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? back in 1988. At long last, everyone’s favorite cartoon flapper is finally headlining her very own feature film. Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment is the production team behind the project. The film is being dubbed as “a music-driven hybrid animated comedy.”

“Betty is an icon, and one of the biggest stars in the world—I’m thrilled to be working with her,” Cowell said in a press release. “Betty, I’ve worked with some serious divas but I think you could be the biggest of them all!”

Even in the afterlife Michael Jackson continues to make history. His visual for “A Place With No Name” became the first music video ever to premiere on Twitter. Musicians promoting their clips via the social media is nothing new, but watching them within tweets is a fairly new feature.

The video is the second single off Jackson’s critically acclaimed posthumous album, Xscape. The lead single, “Love Never Felt So Good,” became his first top ten hit in the US on the Hot 100 since 2001’s “You Rock My World.”

“A Place With No Name” was originally recorded in 1998 and updated by superproducer Stargate. Award-winning director Samuel Bayer filmed the video which features footage of the late King of Pop dancing in previously unreleased outtakes from his 1992 “In the Closet” video. Interspersed in between MJ’s moves is a couple dancing on the beach and other locations. Check out the video below.

Selena Gomez’s last foray into movies didn’t exactly kill at the box office. In fact, Getaway was dead on arrival. Fingers crossed Rudderless yields better results.

The musical drama marks the directorial debut of William H. Macy. It first premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Macy’s wife, Felicity Huffman, supports her man by appearing in the film.

Billy Crudup plays a grieving father who stumbles upon his deceased son’s demo tapes and lyrics. He forms a band with Anton Yelchin in hopes of finding some catharsis.

Laurence Fishburne and Jamie Chung round out the cast. Rudderless hits theater and VOD on October 17. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Synopsis

Sam (Crudup) is a former high-profile advertising executive whose life has been torn apart by the tragic death of his son. Off the grid, living on a docked sailboat, he drowns his pain in alcohol. When Sam discovers a box filled with his son’s demo tapes and lyrics, his own child’s musical talent is a revelation for him, a grieving father who felt he’d been absent from his son’s life. Communing with his deceased son’s dashed dreams, Sam learns each song and eventually musters the will to play one at a local bar. When Quentin (Yelchin), a young musician in the audience, is captivated by the song, the unlikely duo forms a rock band that becomes surprisingly popular and changes both of their lives.

Britney Spears “Womanizer” anyone? Everyone has a past and Iggy Azalea’s has just surfaced.

Before finding fame as a lyrical rapper, the 24-year-old Aussie was an aspiring pop tart. Her “Nothing Like Me” sounds an awful lot like “Womanizer” and accompanying video resembles “Gimme More.” Someone had a hard-on for Spears?

Azalea isn’t the first musician with an embarrassing musical past. Hardly! Just ask Katy Perry and Alanis Morrissette about their Christian and cheesy pop past respectively. Everyone has to start somewhere. Check out “Nothing Like Me” below.

Best.Decision.Ever!!!

Allison Holker is widely regarded as one of the best dancers to ever grace the So You Think You Can Dance stage. She was totally robbed on Season 2. Anyone else agree?

The 26-year-old is one of three new pros joining Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars. You just know Holker is going to come up with some wicked contemporary numbers for her celebrity. On the flip side, I can’t wait to see how proficient she is with traditional ballroom dances.

For those bummed that Maksim Chmerkovskiy opted to not return, another piece of man eye candy has been recruited. Artem Chigvintsev (bottom right), another SYTYCD alum, makes his debut as a pro on the US version. He appeared as part of the troupe last season and a featured pro on the UK version, Strictly Come Dancing. Chigvintsev also previously dated DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Burn the Floor veteran Keoikantse “Keo” Motsepe (top right) rounds out the newbies.

HBO Renews The Leftovers For A Second Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Despite declining ratings since its premiere and painfully slow storytelling, HBO has renewed The Leftovers for a second season.

“We are thrilled to bring back The Leftovers for a second season with the exceptional talents of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta,” says Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming. “It has been truly exciting to see the overwhelming response to their provocative and original storytelling. We look forward to continuing the journey as the show delves deeper into the lives of those who remain.”

While I was initially intrigued by the show’s premise, I grew tired quite quickly. It’s so depressing and features no likeable characters. Since my partner loves it, I only half-watch it now in the background. Are you still watching or did you break up with it already?

The one positive thing about the show’s renewal is that hopefully viewers are treated with more scenes of Justin Theroux jogging. How distracting was that bulge? Even co-star Liv Tyler talked about its mesmerizing quality. #jenniferanistonisoneluckybitch. Check out an image of Theroux’s beast lurking underneath his jogging pants below.

For his next film, Quentin Tarantino should really consider casting Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora as his next leading ladies. These two are a deadly combo together. Bad ass bitches they are.

Azalea swaps out Clueless for Kill Bill as the inspiration for her latest clip. Iggy plays a waitress while Rita plays the girlfriend to Michael Madsen. Wielding samurai swords, the two exact revenge on him for his douchebaggery. Check out the fun clip below directed by Director X.

If I was Calvin Harris, I’d be careful and stop playing the jilted ex lover. I’m sure Ora can only take so much of her former beau’s antics. It was recently revealed that Harris stopped Ora’s scheduled performance of “I Will Never Let You Down” and took back most of the tracks he produced for Rita’s forthcoming album. One day Rita might just put that sword to good use. Lorena Bobbitt anyone ;)

Every fashion magazine’s September issue touts all the hottest trends for Fall. Details is no different. Considering it’s all about the fashion, Idris Elba shows plenty of skin. Not that I’m complaining. The 41-year-old looks fantastic showing off his manly physique.

The British actor can next be seen in No Good Deed out on September 12. Check out more photos of Elba below snapped by Mark Seliger for Detail’s annual Style Issue.
