fall-out-boy-ghostbusters-theme-song

I may not be afraid of no ghosts but this cover frightens me. If the studio thought the backlash over the first trailer was bad, they haven’t seen anything yet. This rock cover of the classic “Ghostbusters” theme song is an abomination. Definitely no bueno.

While I do adore Fall Out Boy, I’m shocked they received the call to record the theme song. Given that it’s an all-female reboot, I would’ve expected a girl group or even a star-studded roster of female musicians to score the gig. Sure, Missy Elliott adds some estrogen but her rap interlude is clunky at best. Not only does the reboot deserve better, but do so fans.

Give “Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)” a listen below. Be prepared to be disappointed.

absolutely-fabulous-featurettes

With only a month left before Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley serve up some major fabulousness as Edina and Patsy, promotion has kicked into high gear. The movie studio uploaded several clips to promote the highly-anticipated film.

Two are behind-the-scenes featurettes which describe the making of the film and all the recognizable cameos lined up. The others are actual clips from the movie, including an amusing models dream sequence featuring Kate Moss and others professing their love and adoration for Edina.

Movie Synopsis

Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie sashays into theaters on July 22. Check out all the clips below.

looking-movie

I was so bummed when HBO’s Looking was not renewed for a third season. The acting, characters, storyline, music… it was perfect. As a gay man in my early 30’s living in a city, it was much more relatable to me than any other gay characters on television at the moment. Thankfully, we at least get a movie to wrap things up and it’s coming out as an HBO Special on Saturday, July 23rd.

Setting the scene for where the film picks up, Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is back in San Francisco after spending some time in Colorado. Upon his return, he realizes he still needs to figure out his love life… and whether that involves Richie (Raúl Castillo) or Kevin (Russell Tovey) I have no idea. Meanwhile, Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) is about to commit to Eddie (Daniel Franzese) but he’s terrified that he’ll hurt him in the end. Dom (Murray Bartlett) and Doris (Lauren Weedman) are in the trailer as well, but not much is revealed about what’s going on with those characters.

spaceman-trailer

This isn’t your typical biopic subject. William Francis Lee III, better known as Bill “Spaceman” Lee, was equally known for his antics on and off the field.

As a ball player, he was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame as the team’s record-holder for most games pitched by a left-hander (321) and the third-highest win total (94) by a Red Sox southpaw. He was also memorable for his use of the Leephus pitch, a personalized variation of the eephus pitch.

Off the field, his counterculture behavior, including speaking in defense of Maoist China, population control, pro marijuana use and supporting Greenpeace made him stand out. And that’s just the tip of the irreverent iceberg.

Though his professional career ended in 1982 when the Montreal Expos released him, he’s still playing for the San Rafael Pacifics of the independent North American League at age 65. Definitely an interesting life.

Josh Duhamel plays the former MLB pitcher. The film, based on Lee’s autobiography The Wrong Stuff, follows his life following his release by the Expos. Spaceman lifts off August 19. Check out the trailer below.

Spaceman Movie Synopsis

From the executive producer of ‘Bull Durham’ and ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ comes SPACEMAN, the mostly-true story of former all-star MLB pitcher Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee. In the twilight of a long career as one of baseball’s all-time great eccentrics, Lee (Josh Duhamel) is cut from the Montreal Expos in 1982. Though Lee finds himself blackballed by the rest of the league for his outspoken politics (his views being “somewhere to left of Che Guevara”) and notoriously enthusiastic drug use, he refuses to quit the game. As of 2016, he still hasn’t.

hozier-better-love-music-video

He first took us to church with his debut single and now Hozier is back to deliver a new track that will have us worshiping his deep rich baritone voice all over again.

Better Love,” like his breakout single “Take Me To Church,” is another anthemic indie rock soul-infused number. It serves as the theme song for the upcoming film, The Legend of Tarzan. By the time awards season arrives, I have a strong feeling the 26-year-old Irish singer might be in contention for an Oscar for Best Original Song. It’s lush and cinematic, exactly what the Academy loves.

Check out the music video below which features footage from the film interspersed with Hozier tickling the ivories.

all-eyez-on-me-movie-trailer

June 16, 2016 would’ve marked his 45th birthday. It’s only fitting the first trailer for his biopic debuts on this day.

All Eyez on Me, originally titled Tupac, will focus on the career of the legendary rapper, from his early years all the way to that fatal drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996.

Relative newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr. was cast to play the slain rapper. Jamal Woolard who played The Notorious B.I.G. in the 2009 film Notorious will also play Biggie Smalls in this film. Also starring are Danai Gurira as Afeni Shakur, Stefon Washington as Puff Daddy, Grace Gibson as Faith Evans and Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett.

If Straight Outta Compton proved anything, there’s massive money to be made from hip-hop autobiographical films. All Eyez On Me should follow suit. Check out the teaser trailer below.
