Kerry Washington isn’t the only ABC star moonlighting on HBO. Her TGIT lineup compatriot Viola Davis is also starring and producing a biopic for the cable channel.

Like Washington, Davis is playing a historical figure. In the latter’s case, it’s one of the most influential and important African-American women in history. The How To Get Away With Murder actress is set to portray Civil Rights Harriet Tubman in a biopic for HBO.

After seeing Sofia Vergara at the recent ACM Awards, some viewers were scratching their heads as to why the Modern Family actress was there. Obviously, she was there to promote her film Hot Pursuit co-starring Reese Witherspoon, but why appeal to the country crowd. Now, it all makes sense.

Miranda Lambert just debuted her offering to the film soundtrack. With Mrs. Blake Shelton channeling her inner lawbreaker with Carrie Underwood in “Something’ Bad,” she seemed an obvious choice to deliver the lead cut for the film. Lambert revealed to Ryan Seacrest on how she got involved.

“Reese texted me and told me about the movie and wanted me to write something or sing or both. I got inspired,” she said. “It was a bit of a Thelma and Louise theme and that’s totally up my alley. It is really so fun to be part of it.” – Miranda Lambert told Ryan Seacrest

Securing a top musician is a savvy business move by studios since soundtracks generate big business these days. Snagging Miranda seems to work on paper, but “Two of a Crime” is a bit underwhelming. It’s kinda all over the place. It’s a bit country and rock with some Latin flavor added in as an afterthought.

I suppose she was only following Reese’s orders who advised her to whip up something “Southern and a Latin flavor.” That’s not even the oddest thing. For some reason ,the last half of the song is mostly instrumental. So weird. I’ll chalk up this fail to it being Miranda’s first time writing a song specifically for the big screen. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.

21-jump-street-female-spinoff

Sony Pictures is all about girl power these days. They already have a female-driven Ghostbusters in the works and now comes this.

Reportedly, the studio is developing a female-centric 21 Jump Street spinoff. With Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum doing blockbuster business with the first two installments, it’s only natural the studio attempt to milk every last dollar from the franchise. According to Tracking Board, Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs have been hired to write the script.

Female buddy flicks can sometimes be quite lucrative. The Heat co-starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy was summer hit a couple years ago.

Does a girl spinoff pique your interest? If it doesn’t come to fruition, at least fans can look forward to the threequel titled 23 Jump Street which is also currently in development. Sound off below.

ted-2-restricted-trailer

Anyone else curious to know how much Tom Brady’s spunk would go for on the black market? I’m thinking pretty steep and bet there are some who would be willing to pay anything to get that sexy man’s juice.

Ted 2 just debuted their raunchiest trailer yet. The above scenario kicks off the clip with John (Mark Wahlberg) and Ted (Seth MacFarlane) breaking into the New England quarterback’s home to get some of his sperm so that Ted can impregnate his wife (Jessica Barth). Naturally, Plan A goes out the window (literally). John mans up to donate but legally he can’t because Ted isn’t considered a person in the eyes of the law. Enter legal eagle, Samantha L. Jackson (Amanda Seyfried) to fight for his civil rights.

Check out the restricted red band trailer below. It’s exactly what you’d expect from MacFarlane. Plenty of jokes about drugs, race, sex and bodily fluids. Ted 2 ejaculates into theaters on June 26.

We’ve already seen Channing Tatum, Adam Rodriguez and Matt Bomer strutting their stuff on a character poster. Today, we get the grand daddy (or should I say woof daddy) of them all. #MagicMondays wouldn’t be the same without a little Magic Mike XXL eye candy.

As expected, Joe Manganiello’s abs and pecs are on display. That Sofia Vergara is one lucky woman. Is it me, or does it look like he’s doing the choreography from the Spice Girls’ “Stop” music video in his poster?

The studio also recently shared artwork featuring other cast members, including the first one featuring a female character. Check out Kevin Nash and Jada Pinkett Smith doing their thing below.

“Black strip clubs and white strip clubs are totally different,” Tyson Beckford previously stated. On May 22, moviegoers will see exactly how different. Based on the first trailer though, Chocolate City looks awfully similar to that other stripper movie. Both feature a young man hard up for money being introduced to the lucrative world of exotic dancing. Although this one, features Ginuwine in the film, and not just his hit song “Pony.”

Movie Synopsis

Welcome to Chocolate City, where the music is hot, the mood is magical, and the exotic male dancers are simply delicious. Women go wild as these toned, talented men make fantasies come true… and the arrival of a young, new exotic dancer (Robert Ri’chard) has the spot sizzling like never before. At home, he is Michael, an inner city college student struggling to help his mother (Vivica A. Fox) make ends meet. However, when his part-time job doesn’t pay the bills, Michael begins to find success at a nightclub dancing as “Sexy Chocolate.” As the money starts rolling in, Michael must deal with the unexpected pressure of being the female clubgoers’ favorite flavor while hiding his new “job” from his mother and girlfriend.

Along with Beckford, the Magic Mike-like film stars Michael Jai White, Vivica A. Fox, Carmen Electra and Robert Ri’chard. Chocolate City grinds into limited theaters on May 22, just weeks before the highly-anticipated round two of Channing Tatum and company. Check out the first trailer below.

He probably won’t win an Oscar for portraying the Joker like Heath Ledger did, but Jared Leto looks pretty dang convincing as Batman’s maniacal arch nemesis. He’s serving homicidal cray to the nth degree. Director David Ayer shared the first picture of the 43-year-old as the iconic villain on Friday to commemorate the Joker’s 75th anniversary.

How does he compare to Jack Nicholson and Ledger who’ve played the Joker on the big screen? Leto ditches Nicholson’s jacket and Ledger’s shaggy hair. Instead, he goes shirtless, only wearing a purple glove (Joker’s signature color) and plenty of ink. I’m kinda loving it. If anyone can following in Ledger’s footsteps, it’s Leto. Check out a full picture below and weigh in afterward.
