Is A Devil Wears Prada Sequel Coming Soon?

In: Donovan, Movies

Time to bring out all those cerulean sweaters you have in your closet. Miranda Priestly is coming back. I’m practically creaming my pants at the very thought of Meryl Streep uttering, “Why, is no one reaaaaady?” one more time. Typically, sequels to beloved movies terrify me, but I’m so on board with this, words can’t even describe how excited I am. Even if the sequel is only half as good, I have no doubt Streep will make it deliciously watchable.

EW.com is reporting that the author of “The Devil Wears Prada”, Lauren Weisberger is working on a sequel to her debut hit novel. Titled, “Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns“, the story picks up eight years after Andrea (Andy) Sachs leaves Runway magazine. Not only is she planning a wedding with a handsome media scion, she’s also working for a bridal magazine, The Plunge. How convenient.

There she works alongside with her one-time Runway rival now BFF, Emily. Since the publication world is a small one, it’s only natural Andy bumps into her former boss Miranda Priestly once again. I’m sure when they meet, Priestly will call her “Ahn-dre-ah“, reminding Andy of her days as Miranda’s second assistant.

Alex Beh (actor/director who used to date Jennifer Love Hewitt) brings a thoroughly entertaining new short film titled ‘COFFEES‘ that you simply must watch. The film is about how “Love will make you do irrational acts of kindness”. An example would be bringing your ex (who doesn’t want to see you) coffees.

Bringing coffees to his ex (unannounced), Beh’s character can’t get through the front gates because his ex has changed the pass code. Once he figures out a way around it, he encounters some interesting situations in the house coupled with flashes of fantasies on how he would like to see this situations play out. Actually, he’s not the only one who daydreaming.

With great visuals, perfect music, clever writing, and some interesting characters, it’s definitely worth watching. Beh is pretty easy on the eyes as well 😉 Check out the short film below.

SHIVERS! Seriously, Goosebumps flooded my body watching the first trailer for the highly-anticipated musical adaptation of “Les Miserables“. It already looks better than the 1998 version starring Liam Neeson, Claire Danes, Geoffrey Rush and Uma Thurman. Mind you, that one didn’t feature any singing while this new version will have plenty of it. The trailer alone is dominated with Anne Hathaway tackling one of the musical’s most beloved songs- “I Dreamed A Dream“.

Set during the June Rebellion in France, the film is based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo. His work has inspired many stage productions, television adaptations and film versions, but the new one starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and the aforementioned Hathaway is the first big-screen production of the Broadway musical.

Landing the iconic role of Éponine is relative newcomer Samantha Barks. She beat out Taylor Swift, Evan Rachel Wood, Lea Michele and Scarlett Johansson who were all reported to be considered for the role. Barks previously played the role at the 25th Anniversary concert and in the West End production from 2010–2011. Check out the first ever trailer for “Les Miserables” below.

The movie trailer for ‘Lay The Favorite‘ has just debuted and we’ve got your first look below! I wasn’t actually aware that this was even in the works, but I have to say that it’s a great ensemble. The film stars Bruce Willis, Rebecca Hall, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Joshua Jackson among others. The film is based on Beth Raymer’s memoir of the same title, and follows a young, free-spirited woman (Hall) as she ventures into the legal and illegal world of sports gambling.

Beth leaves her dancing job at a Florida strip club to become a Las Vegas cocktail waitress – which she felt was her only option for a few reasons. Then comes Dink (Yes, that’s his name) played by Willis. He’s a pro sports bettor and sees an opportunity to use Beth in his betting schemes. She seems to have a knack for it and he refers to her as his good luck charm… as opposed to his jinx of a wife, Tulp (Jones). Naturally, Tulip is a tad jealous of the attention Beth is getting which isn’t good.

Beth then decides to move to NYC to take advantage of another risky gambling opportunity. Things are over her head when a certain gamble jeopardizes her boyfriend’s freedom (Jackson). She’s left with no choice but to team up with Dink & the crew once again so that she can get out of it. Check out the first trailer below.

This weekend Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron battle it out on the big screen. To hold us over until “Snow White and the Huntsman” hits theaters, we have the film’s leading ladies facing off for Interview Magazine. Instead of battling with magic, swords and poisonous apples, the ladies fight with high fashion poses and fierce couture provided by Lanvin, Givenchy, Valentino and Nina Ricci to name a few. Photographer Mikael Jansson captures both these actresses in the best way possible.

Considering Charlize was a former fashion model, Kristen does a pretty decent job holding her own with the leggy blond. Wasn’t always a fan of Stewart, but I have to give the girl credit for ditching her former grungy look. The “Twilight” star serves up some serious cheekbones and GLAM-OR. Along with the pics, the two sit down and chat with film critic Elvis Mitchell. Check out a few quotes and several photos from their fashion spread below.

Ten Movies I Can’t Wait To See This Summer

In: Donovan, Movies

Memorial Day long weekend is unofficially the beginning for summer movies. With that in mind, I thought today would be ideal to share the movies I’m looking forward to seeing the most this summer. While “The Avengers” and “The Hunger Games” got an early start on Hollywood’s most lucrative season, there are still plenty of films left to check out.

Typically this time of year, big budget action movies and superhero flicks dominate the multiplexes, with a few comedies thrown in. This year is no different. Most of the ones I’m itching to see fall in those categories with a couple musicals included for good measure. I am gay after all. I’d lose my gay card if I wasn’t excited for a song and dance flick starring Whitney Houston.

However, with that said, there are always one or two surprises that manage to win audiences over even without a huge marketing campaign behind them. Remember “The Help” last year? Not only did it become a surprise blockbuster but also became a major force come awards season. I highly doubt any of my choices will be Oscar contenders (special effects and sound maybe), but I’m sure they’ll do boffo dollars. Find out which ten flicks have me revved up to hit the theaters this summer below.

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve seen a movie with Ethan Hawke, so when I saw this trailer for ‘The Woman In The Fifth,’ it definitely piqued my interest.

Hawke plays Tom Ricks, an American writer who moves to Paris to be closer to his young daughter who is living with his estranged ex-wife. Completely broke, he gets a job as a night guard for a local crime boss. Situated in a basement office, his only task is to push a button when a bell rings. In the quiet of the night, he hopes that he’ll find focus for writing his new novel. During the day, his life starts to get a little more exciting when he become romantically involved with a widow named Margit (Kristin Scott Thomas). The mysterious woman sets the following rules for their meetings: she will only see him at her apartment in the fifth arrondissement, at 5pm sharp, twice a week and he should ask no questions about her work or her past life. Very bizarre.

Things start to get intense when people around Tom start dying. He starts to believe that a dark force has entered his life that punishes anyone who has recently done him wrong. After he is accused of murdering his neighbor, he uses his weekly visits to Margit’s place as an alibi. The problem is he learns that she hasn’t lived at this address for the past 15 years. WFT? Check out the trailer below.

The early estimates for this weekend of movie watching at the box office has come out and it looks like ‘Men In Black 3‘ has come out on top. I couldn’t resist including “bitch slap” in my title, making reference to Will Smith recently slapping that reporter for kissing him.

Critics weren’t sure if ‘MIB 3’ would be able to hold up to ‘The Avengers‘, who after this weekend are at an estimated whopping $513.6 million since opening in theaters. That is just bonkers! This weekend, ‘MIB 3’ took the top spot with $55 million, while ‘The Avengers’ brought in just under $37 million.

Creepy thriller, ‘Chernobyl Diaries‘ opened this weekend with a modest $8 million. I guess people weren’t in the mood to get spooked this weekend. Check out how the other films did in the list below.
