todrick-hall-twerk-the-halls-tour

Once again, Todrick Hall looks to the Disney vault for inspiration for his latest clip. The YouTube sensation flips the script and reimagines your favorite Disney princesses as the royal next door if she was living in the hood.

Sure it perpetuates certain stereotypes but it’s all in good fun. My favorites are Brokahontas, Cinder-Aaliyah and RAPunzel. Naturally, the movie studio’s sole African-American princess transforms into the sassy white girl Louise-iana. Check it out below.

In other Todrick Hall-related news, the former American Idol contestant heads out on the road this December. If you’re not feeling the holiday spirit yet, perhaps Twerk The Halls- A Toddy Halliday is exactly what you need. It kicks off in Los Angeles on December 17 and ends in Washington DC on December 31. Head over to TodrickHall.com for more details.

Though actual statues are handed out, the MTV Movie Awards is primarily used these days to officially kick-off the summer blockbuster season. Studios send in their talent to promote their big budget films opening during the lucrative season. Their bottom line for the year relies heavily on how they perform those crucial months.

The 24th annual MTV Movie Awards doesn’t air until Sunday, April 12, 2015, but the network already found their man, or should I say woman, to host the event. Taking over Rebel Wilson, who disappointed in my opinion last year, is the hilarious Amy Schumer. The 33-year-old comedian jumped onto the scene when she placed fourth on the fifth season of Last Comic Standing. She currently stars in Comedy Central’s popular Inside Amy Schumer.

“I am honored to be hosting the awards,” said Amy Schumer. “I will carry the audience with me like a teen mom #breaktheinternet #breakmywater.”

2014-sag-awards-nominations

It appears Birdman is the one to beat at the 87th Academy Awards. The film has been racking up numerous accolades all awards season long but with its multiple Screen Actors Guild nominations, it’s pretty much solidified itself as the frontrunner. Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, and Emma Stone all scored some love along with Best Ensemble which is the SAG’s version of Best Picture.

When it comes to correctly predicting Oscar nominees and eventual winners, the SAGs have one of the best records. With the 2014 nominations now unveiled, the Oscar race for the acting categories is becoming a lot clearer.

Julianne Moore, Patricia Arquette and Keaton cemented their statuses as the ones to place your bets on, while Jennifer Aniston, Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon, Eddie Redmayne have all now officially entered the race. Check out all the nominations below which includes Meryl Streep snagging her umpteenth nod.

In addition to saying goodbye as Gandalf in the photo above, Colbert poses as Bilbo and Legolas. Check out the other two covers below. The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies storms into theaters this weekend.

the-walk-teaser-trailer

From the man who brought us Back To The Future, Forrest Gump, Flight and Cast Away, comes a true story based on Philippe Petit’s illegal high-wire walk between the Twin Towers on the morning of August 7, 1974 back when they were just newly-built. Robert ZemeckisThe Walk doesn’t take a step into theaters until October 2, 2015, but Sony Pictures has premiered the first teaser trailer for the film.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt portrays the French high-wire artist who made headlines for his death-defying feat. In the clip, he heads to the top of the World Trade Center and walks on the edge. My palms immediately got sweaty seeing him do this. I have a fear of heights and can’t even imagine how freaked I’d be 100 plus stories up. Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, and James Badge Dale round out the cast. Check out the first teaser below.

Movie Synopsis

The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve the impossible: an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. With little more than nerve and blind ambition, Petit and his ragtag crew overcome daunting physical obstacles, betrayals, countless close calls and overwhelming odds to beat the system and execute their mad plan.

san-andreas-teaser-trailer

Dwayne The Rock Johnson goes up against the biggest rock of them all- planet Earth. The 42-year-old actor stars in the upcoming disaster flick San Andreas showing the damage a magnitude 9 earthquake can inflict on California and its surrounding states if the infamous fault lives up to its violent potential.

The first teaser trailer just dropped and it reminds me of the West Coast version of The Day After Tomorrow. It’s about time New York got a break ;)

Joining The Rock in the film are True Detective‘s Alexandra Daddario, Paul Giamatti, Kylie Minogue, Colton Haynes, Archie Panjabi and Kylie Minogue. He also reunites with his Race to Witch Mountain co-star Carla Gugino. San Andreas hits theaters May 29, 2015.

Check out the teaser trailer below which shows the Hollywood sign, Hoover Dam and other landmarks crumbling. The eerie cover of the Mamas and the Papa’s “California Dreams” playing in the background adds a nice touch.

First Still Alice Movie Trailer Released

In: Donovan, Movies

Julianne Moore has been racking up Best Actress awards for her portrayal of a woman battling early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease in Still Alice. The 54-year-old actress is receiving some of the best reviews of her career. She’s a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination and in a tight race for the statue with Boyhood‘s Patricia Arquette.

I’m hoping she pulls it out. She’s long overdue. At long last, we get to see a sampling of Moore’s acting tour de force in the film thanks to the first trailer released by Sony.

“I didn’t want to depict anything onscreen that I hadn’t actually seen. Everything that you see – all of the actions, all of the reactions, all of the things that are physicalized – were all things that I had observed,” she said to Yahoo.

Still Alice is based on the bestselling 2007 novel of the same name by Lisa Genova. Alec Baldwin plays Moore’s husband, while Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Hunter Parrish star as the couple’s children.

It held its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September. The film opens in limited release on December 5 to quality for the Oscars, before opening wide on January 16, 2015. Check out the trailer below.

2014-afi-awards-winners

Instead of the usual ten, the American Film Institute’s AFI Awards saluted 11 films for their yearly honors. Among those singled out include Boyhood, Birdman and Foxcatcher. Christopher Nolan’s hit Interstellar also joined the list as well as Angelina Jolie’s directorial effort, Unbroken.

All these movies should feel good about their Oscar chances. Last year, seven films on AFI’s list made the cut for Best Picture at the Oscars. In 2012, eight achieved that feat.

“Those 11 flicks, as well as 10 TV programs, are honored with the awards because they are “deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image.” AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale said in a statement, “They are a part of our American cultural heritage – collectively, a new chapter in the story of the art form and of our nation.”

Over on the television front, newcomers Silicon Valley, How To Get Away With Murder and Jane The Virgin joined veterans Game of Thrones and Mad Men on the Institute’s best list. I’m glad the freshmen series got some love. I love all of them, especially Shonda Rimes’ latest guilty pleasure. I especially love saying the title out loud in my best Viola Davis voice ;)

Prizes for both winners in movie and TV categories are handed at a private luncheon on January 9. Check out the rest of the winners below.
