Star Wars Leads 2016 MTV Movie Awards Nominations

2016-mtv-movie-awards

Just because the Oscars are done, that doesn’t mean more awards shows aren’t on the way. The entertainment industry loves putting on a show.

The MTV Movie Awards hands out statues for flicks from the past year, but the ceremony is more of a launching pad for Hollywood to promote their big-budget summer blockbusters.

Though Star Wars: The Force Awakens leads the pack with 11 nominations, I predict the big winner at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards will be Straight Outta Compton. Call it a hunch.

For it’s 25th anniversary, the awards show added two new categories- Documentary and True Story. Watch April 10 on MTV to find out who walks away with a golden popcorn trophy. Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson will co-host the event which will take place outdoors this year.

freddie-prinze-jr-summer

Doesn’t it feel just like yesterday when we were curious what he did last summer 😉 It’s kinda shocking that Freddie Prinze, Jr. turns 40 today, March 8. Where did all the years go?

After supporting roles on To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday and The House of Yes, Freddie became a teen heartthrob after the one-two punch of I Know What You Did Last Summer and She’s All That. Sadly, his ‘It Boy’ status waned with subsequent under-performing films including Wing Commander, Summer Catch, Down To You and a personal guilty pleasure of mine, Head Over Heels. He somewhat rebounded with Scooby-Doo but unfortunately the sequel erased any momentum he had.

After his film career stalled, he tried his hand on television. He fronted his own sitcom, Freddie, which only lasted a season. He had memorable appearances on Friends, 24 and Witches of East End.

Lately, Prinze Jr. has mostly done voiceover work for animated films and television shows. Later this summer, he’ll release a cook book which features recipes paying homage to his New Mexican roots and Puerto Rican heritage.

Check out several pictures below of Freddie over the years. He’s quite the silver fox these days. Happy Birthday Mr. Sarah Michelle Gellar!!!

Zendaya Snags Mystery Role For Spider-Man Reboot

In: Donovan, Movies
zendaya-spider-man-movie

Spider-Man is receiving yet another reboot whether we like it or not. Personally, I could do without but that’s my two cents.

Tom Holland steps in to play the web-slinger previously played by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maquire before that. “Something New” singer Zendaya joins the project in a mysterious lead role.

Deadline reports the 19-year-old entertainer will play a character named Michelle. It’s believed it won’t be a romantic interest for Peter Parker but it will be a major part in the superhero film which also features Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.

Sony and Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man reboot won’t swing into theaters until July 7, 2017 but moviegoers will get their first look at Holland as Spidey in this summer’s Captain America: Civil War.

Interested in another Spider-Man reboot? Why or why not? Weigh in below.

Dissension is in the air for the next Captain America film. Due to a new government policy governing them, the Avengers team is fractured. One side is lead by Steve Rogers while Tony Stark commands the other.

Team Cap is highlighted in a new batch of character posters. Check out Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Captain America (Chris Evans) below. Captain America: Civil War starts battle on May 6.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Ghostbusters All-Female Reboot Debuts First Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
ghostbusters-trailer

The first trailer for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot pays homage to the original by opening up with a scene set in a library as Kristen Wiig approaches an apparition. Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd had a similar encounter in the original 1984 film.

Don’t get it twisted though. These aren’t the ghosts from the 80s. They’re meaner, bigger and dole out nastier slime. If that wasn’t enough, these supernatural spirits have the ability to possess human form.

The clip primarily focuses on the four main leads- Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Wiig. Chris Hemsworth, who plays the ladies’ secretary, only makes a brief appearance. And not shirtless to boot :( Meanwhile, the OG Ghostbusters, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, who are all set to make cameos, don’t appear at all in the trailer.

Ghostbusters slimes its way into theaters on July 15. Check out the video below.

The second Zoe Saldana was cast as Nina Simone, there was immediate criticism. Many felt, Saldana who is of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent, shouldn’t play an African-American woman. Where was all the ire when Zoe played Bernie Mac’s daughter in Guess Who 😉 I kid.

The backlash reemerged this week when the poster and movie trailer were released. Some felt Saldana wearing darker makeup and a prosthetic nose to resemble the legendary singer was a form of blackface.

How do you feel about the controversy? I don’t mind that Zoe snagged the role, but the dark makeup is probably in bad taste given cultural appropriation is all over the place these days.

Nina Movie Synopsis

She was one of the century’s most extraordinary talents, a 15-time Grammy nominee and Grammy Hall of Fame Recipient; her mesmerizing songs and passionate politics combined to make her the unforgettable Nina Simone (Zoe Saldana). But fame and fortune came with a price, and her later years were riddled with depression, alcohol abuse and isolation. Rediscovering the meaning of her life and work took courage, strength and one true friend: Clifton Henderson (David Oyelowo), the man who started out as her assistant and eventually became her loyal manager. With Clifton’s encouragement, the “high priestess of soul” began a courageous journey back to her music … and, eventually, herself.

Check out the Nina trailer below. It hits theaters and video-on-demand on April 22, 2016.

Sometimes when the popular sidekick gets their own vehicle, it’s more often than not, a disappointment. Since Disney is behind this, I highly doubt it’ll suck. Dory should have no problem helming her own film.

Finding Dory is the sequel to the popular 2003 animated film, Finding Nemo. The film takes place six months after the events of the first film. Dory, once again voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, suddenly recalls her childhood memories. With the assistance of Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (now voiced by Hayden Rolence), they go on an adventure to find her parents.

Diane Keaton, Eugene LEvy, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill and Idris Elba join the cast. Finding Dory swims into theaters on June 17. Check out the new trailer below.
