Given that I co-own a men’s skin care & grooming product storefront and web store, this documentary is right up my alley: From the people that brought you the ‘Supersize Me‘ documentary and executive producers Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Ben Silverman, we get to see a hilarious look at men’s identity in the 21st century in this upcoming on ‘Mansome‘ film.

The synopsis reads, “In the age of manscaping, metrosexuals, fancy men’s day spas, and high-end grooming products galore, “Mansome” is a witty, provocative and highly-entertaining glimpse into what it means to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster’s facial hair in Williamsburg. With his signature humor and insight, Spurlock combs over the follicles of men’s idiosyncratic grooming habits, opening up a dialogue about men’s unique approach to self image.”

In addition to Will Arnett and Jason Bateman, the film also stars Morgan Spurlock, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Adam Carolla, Judd Apatow, and John Waters. Various models, actors, experts and comedians also weigh in on what it is to be a man in today’s world. The film hits theaters for a limited release on May 18.

Get Ready To Practice Your Care Bear Stare

In: Donovan, Movies

Even though this bit of news is not only random, but also a few weeks old, I just had to chat about it. For those who didn’t know, I worked at a kids and teen online magazine for several years. Given that my job was to know everything kid-oriented, I was quite knowledgeable on cartoons and developed a love for vintage 80s kids shows. In addition, I babysit my niece once a week so I get my weekly fix of kids animation there as well.

Hands down, one of my cartoon guilty pleasures are the Care Bears. Who doesn’t love the cuddly bears with logos emblazoned on their adorable tummies. Tenderheart, Love-A-Lot, Cheer Bear come to mind? They should really include a gay one… oh wait, there was Funshine Bear *wink*. The Care Bears were created by American Greetings in 1981 to sell greeting cards. They were like the Smurfs, but with a fierce Care Bare stare.

Well, the crew is coming back for an original new show for The Hub debuting this summer. Coming off the success of their “My Little Pony” reboot, The Hub is looking to duplicate it with the residents of Care-a-Lot. This time around, they’re receiving the CGI treatment and their signature tummy symbols have been rebranded as “belly badges“. Check out the official synopsis.

Get ready for some Biblical drama of epic proportions. Director Darren Aronofsky who is most famously known for his work with Black Swan is ready to bring us another masterpiece. This time, he’s going way back to give us a familiar tale. The film is titled Noah and will tell the story of Noah’s Ark. The film is set to begin filming this summer and already has a release date set for March 28, 2014.

Joining Darren to play the title role is none other than Russell Crowe. In my opinion, Russell is the perfect candidate to play the biblical character. Give him a long white beard – it’ll be perfect! Darren said in a statement, “I rejoice that Russell Crowe will be by my side on this adventure. It’s his immense talent that helps me to sleep at night. I look forward to being wowed by him every day.”

Paramount and Regency are backing the project which is solely a vision of Darren’s. With his specialty camera tricks and unique shooting style, I cannot wait to see what kind of flavor he brings to this classic Bible story. It’s also been a while since we’ve seen a studio release a big, Biblical classic. Two other cast members have been announced “rumored” to be joining the film. Find out who they are below.

I cannot believe it but someone has finally knocked The Hunger Games off the top spot of the weekend box office totals. I thought for sure that the film would have stayed on until at least the first weekend in May. To my surprise, a little film called Think Like A Man climbed to the top knocking Hunger Games down two spots in the top ten. The number one film stars Kevin Hart and tells the story of a group of guys who are mad at Steve Harvey for writing a book that tells women all of their secrets.

The film was posed to do well at the box office after making test score history for Sony Screen Gems. The film was tested twice for pre-screening audiences. The first time around they scored 96% and the second an almost perfect score with 99%. I’ve seen the trailer and honestly cannot wait to check out this movie. Not to mention, it features a slew of R&B artist cameos like Kelly Rowland and Keri Hilson.

Another box office marvel this weekend was The Lucky One which stars the ever sexy Zac Efron. Noted as one of Nicholas Sparks’ best novels since The Notebook, the story follows an ex-marine who travels to a small town to find a woman in a picture – a picture that save his life. Another opener was Disney’s Chimpanzee which was sure to draw in the weekend’s family crowd. Check out the top ten results below.

The director of ‘Little Miss Sunshine‘ (LMS) is bringing a new dramedy to the big screen that is sure to capture our hearts once again. This film is the perfect example of how the connections you have are so important. Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, who brought us LMS in 2006, are directing this film that stars Paul Dano (the guy who also played the silent, awkward teenager in LMS and who will also be in ‘Looper‘) as the lead.

Now, the story is actually written by Dano’s real life girlfriend (Zoe Kazan), and it gets even more interesting. Dano plays a writer who writes a character that he falls in love with and somehow brings her to life. That character is played by Zoe, his real life girlfriend. Amazing, right? Talk about taking your own future and career into your own hands. The character’s name is ‘Ruby Sparks‘, which is the title of the film.

‘Ruby Sparks’ also stars Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening, and Steve Koogan. The film hits theatres for limited release on July 25. Check out the trailer below.

“Magic Mike” Unveils First Full Length Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

First there were paparazzi pics, then movie stills and a teaser trailer weeks later. Now, we finally have the goods right in front of our face. The first official full-length trailer has been revealed by Warner Bros. And like something you’ve been highly anticipating, the actual outcome is a little disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to watch it for the gratuitous eye candy. Nothing is going to stop me from that. No matter how awful the movie might or might not be.

Even though it was described as a dramatic comedy, I wasn’t expecting a lot. After seeing the official trailer, it’s exactly what I feared. Demi Moore’s “Striptease” might finally lose that crown for cheesiest stripper flick to “Magic Mike” even with all the copious amounts of chesticles.

I understand Hollywood movie studios would never greenlight 90 minutes of Alex Pettyfer, Joe Mangianello, Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum just bumping and grinding with no plotline (though you won’t me hearing complaining), but the side story saddled to “Magic Mike” is utterly lame. Sure, you probably need a love angle to lure in another demographic than gay males, but having Tatum as an aspiring furniture designer is gag-worthy. Check out Tatum’s hot body, sexy dance moves and his hideous coffee tables in the movie trailer below. I’m not joking about the coffee tables either.

When I was a kid, Disney movies held a sense of wonder, magic and mystery. They fuelled my imagination yet in each story, made me learn something about life. Now as an adult, Disney movies have taken on a whole new light. There is a definitely a darker side to these fairy tales. It seems as though artist Rowan Stocks-Moore has seen the same dark side as many of us have and has immortalized these images in mock-up posters for the Disney cartoons.

“In recent years I have re-watched some Disney films and noticed a much darker tone than I remembered as a child, (though even as a child who can forget the infamous death scene in Bambi?!),” Stocks-Moore wrote. “I decided I would combine this love of Disney with the darker tones I’d picked up on to create some new poster art that would appeal more to adults than to children, but would still reflect the inherent magical charm of the Disney movies they depict.”

Check out ten of Rowan’s masterpieces below and if you like what you see, you can purchase them on Rowan’s Etsy Site and enjoy them happily ever after.

Emily Blunt has certainly become a busy girl every since she played the jaded and high strung assistant in The Devil Wears Prada. This year, she is in ‘The Five-Year Engagement‘ with Jason Segal, and it looks like it’s going to be hilarious. She’s also in ‘Looper‘, which comes out in September and Tomorrow, ‘Your Sister’s Sister‘ will be making its world premiere as it begins its run at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Here’s the premise of the film: “Iris (Blunt) invites her friend Jack (Mark Duplass) to stay at her family’s island getaway after the death of his brother. At their remote cabin, Jack’s drunken encounter with Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), Iris’ sister, kicks off a revealing stretch of days.”

Does anyone else find the title super confusing: ‘Your Sister’s Sister’? LOL. It boggles my mind. Anyway, the movie looks cute so you should definitely check out the trailer below. I’m so interested in seeing how things turn out in the end.
