Jennifer Lopez performed her new ballad on last night’s episode of American Idol. Her choice of gown was relatively demure and prom-like and not the revealing and sparkly designs the 45-year-old entertainer typically wears.
After watching her new music video, it all makes sense. The gown’s train is used as a backdrop as animated aliens dance around her. In essence, J. Lo is a glorified projector screen ;)
“Feel The Light” is lifted off the soundtrack for Dreamworks’ animated film Home. Lopez provides the voice of Lucy Tucci, the mother of lead character Tip played by Rihanna. Check out her bright and colorful new visual below.
It appears that Disney is not the only studio giving their classics a live-action treatment.
After almost a decade in development, a live-action Fraggle Rock movie appears to be finally picking up steam. The series which told the adventures of cave-dwelling creatures debuted in 1983.
With this ‘A’ list actor now on board as producer and signed on to star, Jim Henson’s beloved Muppet characters are all but assured to come to life on the silver screen.
“The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on ‘Sesame Street,’ and then on ‘Fraggle Rock. Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles. I’ve never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood. Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”
The above statement is from the film’s producer and star. Have any idea who it could be? Find out below.
Cara Delevinge might very well achieve what very few supermodels have done before her- transition successfully to motion pictures. Based on the first trailer for Paper Towns, the 22-year-old English stunner appears she has some acting chops. Her American accent isn’t half bad. This bodes very well for her high-profile part in Suicide Squad.
Paper Towns comes from John Green, the same author who wrote The Fault In Our Stars. Unlike that film, this one appears to be less of a tear-jerker.
Nat Wollf, who also appeared in TFIOS, plays a teenage boy in love with his neighbor Margo (Delevingne). After an unexpected all-night adventure, his feelings only grown. When Margo doesn’t show up at school the next day and is declared missing, Nat believes she left clues for him to her whereabouts. Along with some friends, Nat searches for his love.
Justin Smith, Austin Abrams, and Halston Sage round out the cast. Paper Towns is slated to open on July 24.
Who doesn’t love Pretty Woman? The infamous necklace scene, shopping on Rodeo, flying escargots and THAT laugh!!! There’s so many memorable and endearing moments. I can’t even estimate how many times I’ve watched it.
The classic 1990 romantic comedy is responsible for catapulting Julia Roberts into the stratosphere. She earned an Oscar nod and won a Golden Globe for playing the loveable prostitute.
The principal cast including Richard Gere and Laura San Giacomo, along with Roberts sit down for the first time in 25 years to chat with Matt Lauer about the beloved film. The segment won’t air until next week on The Today Show, but a teaser preview was released. Check it out below. I can’t wait to watch the reunion.
As a lover of vintage 80s arcade games, this movie is right up my alley. Even if, it stars Adam Sandler. That aside, Pixels looks very promising. Pac Man, Donkey Kong and other classic video game characters come to life and wreak havoc on Earth in this potential Summer blockbuster.
In 1982, in the hopes of establishing peaceful communication with extraterrestrial life, NASA launches a time capsule into outer space containing images and footage of Earth life and culture. However, aliens misinterpret enclosed video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, specifically Pac-Man, with the Earth being him, and the aliens being the ghosts. They attack the Earth using the games as models for their various assaults, including Pac-Man. – Wiki Description
Sandler is called on to save the day because he’s an 1980s arcade champion and also because he’s the President’s (Kevin James) best friend. He uses his gamer techniques and strategies in hopes of defeating the aliens.
Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Ashley Benson and Jane Krakowski round out the cast. The Christopher Columbus-directed film hits theaters on July 24, 2015.
Check out the totally awesome trailer below. There’s some pretty cool special visual effects.
Daniel Craig serves up some major fashion realness on the first teaser poster for the next James Bond flick, SPECTRE. The 47-year-old rocks a black turtleneck like a seasoned male model. It’s a good look on him. C’est très chic!!!
While I get a Steve McQueen vibe from the official artwork, many more are saying 007 stole FX’s Archer’s look. Bitches be crazy. If anything, Archer stole his look. Roger Moore did it a long time ago during his stint as the spy during Live and Let Die.
Check out several pictures below and weigh in on which person Daniel Craig emulates more. SPECTRE hits theaters on November 6.
The casting team for the Beauty and the Beast live-action adaptation are obsessed with Brits. Emma Thompson is the latest from across the pond to join the star-studded cast. The 55-year-old will feel at home on set with her fellow countrymen Emma Watson (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston) and Dan Stevens (Beast).
What part is Thompson playing? She’ll take on the role of Mrs. Potts, voiced originally by Angela Lansbury in the 1991 animated classic. Since the new version will feature the movie’s original songs, Emma better brush up on her vocals. The title track is one of the most revered and beloved from the Disney archive. As RuPaul would say, ‘Don’t f*ck it up!!!’
The studio also revealed that Kevin Kline is on board to play Maurice, Belle’s father. At least now, Josh Gad who’s taking on Le Fou will have another American to talk to on set ;)
In other BATB-related news, Luke Evans who’ll channel his inner douchebag to play the obnoxious Gaston recently shared a shirtless sweaty pic of himself on a hike. Let’s hope the live-action adaptation allows at least a couple of scenes for Evans to show off his physique. Check out the photo below.
Disney is on a roll with live adaptations of some of their classics as of late. Cinderella just crushed the box office this past weekend during it’s opening frame, following in the footsteps of Maleficent.
The key in bringing these animated films to life is finding the right people to play the beloved characters. With regards to Beauty and the Beast, so far the casting has been on point. Emma Watson is deck to play Belle while Luke Evans and Dan Stevens take on Gaston and the titular Beast respectively.
With the key main cast locked up, it’s time to cast the supporting characters. Find out who’s set to play Le Fou. Once again, it’s spot on.
