A Charlie’s Angels Movie Reboot Is In The Works

In: Donovan, Movies

Charlie’s Angels first began as a television series in the 70s. The ABC show made Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith into household names. It only lasted five seasons, but its impact on pop culture would span decades.

ABC tried to revive the series a couple of years ago but canceled it after one short season. Columbia Pictures hit jackpot with a big screen movie adaptation in 2000 with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu as new ‘Angels.’ The sequel made about the same at the box office but earned mixed reviews. Surprised that a third film never came to fruition.

It appears a movie reboot, not related to the previous Barrymore-produced films, is in the works. Find out which female director is reportedly in negotiations to helm the project.

Toni Braxton Biopic Coming To Lifetime

In: Donovan, Movies, Music

Lifetime is taking a break from making unauthorized movies about 90s television series and returning to its bread and butter, celebrity biopics.

The network has given the greenlight for an original movie based on Toni Braxton. Unlike most of their projects, this one has the subject’s approval. Not only will she executive produce it but she’ll appear in it as well.

Un-Break My Heart will follow the 47-year-old R&B singer’s ups and downs through severe chronic illness, financial troubles and divorce while navigating her son’s autism and family struggles. It’s based on her memoir published in 2014.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant is the penultimate installment to the science-fiction dystopian franchise. The first half of the teaser trailer catches viewers up to the series of events that led up to this point. I have to say, the new footage which begins halfway through seems quite promising and action-packed. It already looks much better than the disappointing second film.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant Movie Synopsis

The third installment of the blockbuster Divergent series franchise, ALLEGIANT takes Tris [Shailene Woodley] and Four [Theo James] into a new world, far more dangerous than ever before.

After the earth-shattering revelations of INSURGENT, Tris must escape with Four and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known in order to find a peaceful solution for their embroiled city. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.

Jeff Daniels and Bill Skarsgard join the cast as David, the leader of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare and a scientist named Matthew respectively. The Divergent Series: Allegiant storms into theaters on March 18, 2016. The final chapter The Divergent Series: Ascendant follows a year later on March 24, 2017. Check out the first teaser trailer below.

This isn’t your parent’s The Jungle Book. Jon Favreau’s adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s collection of stories is decidedly darker, swooping and more primal than the 1967 animated Walt Disney classic. Though the live action CGI adaption is going for a more realistic approach, the teaser hints at the inclusion of the fan-favorite song “Bare Necessities.”

Newcomer Neel Sethi plays Mowgli, the boy raised by jungle animals. A star-studded roster lend their voices for the animals characters. Bill Murray will voice the friendly bear Baloo, Ben Kingsley the panther Bagheera, Idris Elba the villainous tiger Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson the python Kaa, Christopher Walken the ape King Louis, and Giancarlo Esposito and Lupita Nyong’o as the wolves Akela and Raksha.

A rival project over at Warner Bros titled Jungle Book: Origins features Andy Serkis directing Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan, Christian Bale as Bagheera, Cate Blanchett as Kaa, and Naomie Harris as Raksha.

Disney’s latest version arrives on April 15, 2016, while the Warner Bros film doesn’t arrive until a year later on October 6, 2017. Check out Disney’s trailer below.

Rachel McAdams Confirms Doctor Strange Role

In: Donovan, Movies

After months of rumors, Rachel McAdams confirmed her participation in Marvel’s next hotly-anticipated comic book adaptation. The 36-year-old actress did so during an interview with The Wrap at the Toronto International Film Festival.

When pressed about her role specifically in Doctor Strange, she joked she’d probably be in trouble if she revealed more. Those Marvel people would probably take her out in a heartbeat for doing so ;)

The film will most likely be an origin story of how neurosurgeon Stephen Vincent Strange became the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats after a horrific accident.

McAdams joins Benedict Cumberbatch who’s taking on the titular role. Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor are also on board playing the Ancient One and Baron Mordo respectively. Reportedly, filming will begin in November with a release date of November 4, 2016 in mind. Watch McAdams’ brief confirmation below.

It’s only a preview of her new track, but it’s already a million times better than anything on the free LP Miley Cyrus released after the MTV VMAs. How dreadful was that? This new offering could potentially score an Oscar nod for the 22-year-old. You never know. Stranger things have happened.

Cyrus contributes a stunning new ballad for the upcoming lesbian drama Freeheld. The film is based on the true story of New Jersey police officer Laurel Hester and her partner Stacie Andree. The two fought for equal benefits rights after Hester was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Julianne Moore and Ellen Page play the couple respectively and both attended the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday.

“She has a really raw, unique, awesome, beautiful voice, and Miley’s doing a lot of incredible things for the LGBTQ community. I just thought it was going to be a perfect fit. She and Linda made something really special. I kept listening to it after I heard it.” – Ellen Page

Hands of Love” was written by Linda Perry. The fantastic ballad is raw and heartfelt. I can’t wait to hear the entire thing. It is scheduled to hit iTunes on October 2. Until then, check out a preview featured in a new trailer for Freeheld.

“She walked in with no entourage, no fuss, no anything. She came to be of service for the song and the movie and didn’t bring ‘Miley’ with her.” – Linda Perry on Cyrus

New Mary Poppins Musical In The Works

In: Donovan, Movies

The great Walt Disney reboot revolution continues, but this time it’s not an animated favorite that’s getting the treatment. Rather, it’s a beloved musical.

The studio is reportedly developing a new Mary Poppins musical. Instead of remaking the classic, Entertainment Weekly insiders reveal the new “film will take place in Depression-era London, some 20 years after Disney’s classic Mary Poppins, and will draw from existing Poppins tales in the rest of author P.L. Travers’ 1934-1988 children’s book series.”

Rob Marshall, who’s adapted Broadway musicals like Chicago and Into The Woods for the big screen, has been tapped to produce the project along with John DeLuca and Marc Platt.

Would you watch a new Mary Poppins musical? Who do you think should play the part famously portrayed by Julie Andrews in the 1964 classic? Weigh in below.


Even though Stonewall hasn’t screened yet, it already has its fair share of haters. Much of the early criticism has revolved around claims the film ‘whitewashes’ gay struggle. Many fear the contributions of trans people, drag queens and racial minorities won’t be highlighted and will be left out. Valid concerns given the first trailer focused on a corn-fed white boy from Middle America moving to the big city.

Director Roland Emmerich responded to calls for a boycott, by assuring critics that his labor of love would deeply honor the real-life activists who were there — including Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, and Ray Castro and all the brave people who sparked the civil rights movement which continues to this day.

A brand new clip seems to back up his promise. Prominent activist and trans pioneer Marsha P. Johnson who has been identified as one of the first to fight back in the clashes with the police amid the Stonewall riots is the focus of the just-released scene.

Nigerian actor Otoja Abit plays the legendary figure in the film. Check out the vid below. Stonewall storms into theaters on September 25.

Stonewall Movie Synopsis

STONEWALL is a drama about a fictional young man caught up during the 1969 Stonewall riots. Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent’s home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, homeless and destitute, he befriends Ray (Jonny Beauchamp) and a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn; however, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe-haven. As Danny and his friends experience discrimination, endure atrocities and are repeatedly harassed by the police, we see a rage begin to build. This emotion runs through the entire community of young gays, lesbians, drag queens and trans people who populate the Stonewall Inn and erupts in a storm of anger. With the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born.
