kylie-minogue-absolutely-anything

Even hardcore fans of Kylie Minogue would be hard-pressed to like the Aussie’s latest offering. It’s not very good, IMHO. To be fair, the single is for a science fiction comedy film starring Simon Pegg and not for a new album.

Absolutely Anything And Anything At All” is off the Absolutely Anything soundtrack. The film is notable for two things. It’s the last movie for Robin Williams. The late comedian voiced one of the characters. The film also marks the first time in 33 years that all of the living original Monty Python members appear together.

Absolutely Anything heads to theaters on August 14. Check out Kylie’s soundtrack contribution below.

The first time Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt appeared in a film together, Brangelina was born, leading to Pitt leaving Jennifer Aniston. It’s sort of fitting as the trailer for their new collaboration drops, the world learns of Aniston’s secret wedding to Justin Theroux. Everything comes full circle ;) Congrats BTW to Jen and Justin.

By The Sea finds the duo playing an unhappily married couple. To save their marriage they vacation in an idyllic location in France. With the film being set in the 70s expect plenty of fierce fashion from the decade. Jolie rocks everything out.

Not only does Angelina co-star in the film, she also wrote and directed it. The film sails into theaters on November 13, 2015. Check out the first trailer below.

Sometimes the right kind of music is required before doing a task. In Ryan Reynolds’ case, listening to the Salt-N-Pepa classic, “Shoop,” is a must before kicking some major ass.

The first official trailer for Deadpool just dropped. Like Guardians of the Galaxy, music and a comedic approach are the main ingredients for this X-Men spinoff. Reynolds plays Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary. After a scientific experiment goes wrong, he finds himself with powers. Like Reynolds in real life, his character also posses the same dark and twisted sense of humor.

Gina Carano, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein round out the cast. Check out the red band trailer below. Expect to laugh at zingers like this, “You look like Freddy Krueger face-f*cked a topographical map of Utah.” Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.

Stonewall Debuts Captivating Movie Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
stonewall-movie-poster

With a resume that includes Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow and White House Down, Roland Emmerich isn’t exactly the first person you’d think of to direct a movie depicting the birth of gay rights and pride. Stonewall is definitely a departure from his usual fare of action flicks.

The openly-gay 59-year-old directed the passion project for a reportedly $12-14 million budget. Definitely a far cry from what he’s probably used to. War House standout Jeremy Irvine plays a country bumpkin who takes part in the infamous New York City riots. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King round out the cast.

Stonewall makes its debut at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. It marches into theaters on September 25. Check out the powerful first trailer below.

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 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 Danny and the entire community of young gays, lesbians and drag queens 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.

ben-stiller-zoolander-2

It appears that Derek Zoolander hasn’t gotten any smarter over the years. “If God exists, then why did He make ugly people?” laments everyone’s favorite dim-witted male model in the first teaser trailer for 2oolander. The clip gives a sneak peek into Zoolander’s mind. It’s not completely empty but things are definitely jumbled and nonsensical in that brain of his.

Ben Stiller along with Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor and Will Ferrell reprise their memorable roles from the original. Among the number of cameos for the highly-anticipated sequel are Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, Susan Sarandon, Anna Wintour and many more.

2oolander aka Zoolander 2 sashays into theaters in February 2016. Check out the clip below.
