King Cobra is a ripped-from-the-headlines drama covering the early rise of gay porn headliner Sean Paul Lockhart (Garrett Clayton), a.k.a. Brent Corrigan, before his falling out with the porn producer (Christian Slater) who made him famous. When Sean decides he’d be better off as a free agent, a cash-strapped pair of rival producers (James Franco and Keegan Allen) aims to cash in by any means possible. Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone also star.

The recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and has surprisingly received a great reception. The Wrap loved it. I can’t wait to check out the film myself.

On the heels of the first clip which featured Clayton showering, comes another sneak peek. This time around, Allen and Franco are shown working out. Check it out below.

Talk about great casting. If anyone can play a person without emotion, it’s Kristen Stewart. The actress was often criticized earlier in her career for showing little to no emotion, mostly excitement and happiness. Love K-Stew but it was kinda true.

Equals is set in an extremely white and stark utopian society where all human emotion, including sexual desire has been eradicated. Imagine a gigantic Apple store to the nth degree. The 26-year-old former Twilight actress and Nicholas Hoult catch a disease where they begin to feel empathy and naturally, fall in love. Obviously, this becomes a major problem.

Movie Synopsis

In a futuristic utopian society, human emotions have been eradicated and everyone lives in peace but when a new disease surfaces, everything changes for illustrator Silas (Hoult). He becomes an outcast once infected and is drawn to his writer co-worker Nia (Stewart), who is also infected but hiding her condition. In order to survive, they have to escape together.

Jacki Weaver and Guy Pearce also star in the Drake Doremus-directed flick. The film gets a limited theatrical release starting July 15. Check out the trailer below.

From the man who gave us Drive and Only God Forgives comes a fantastically-looking new horror thriller. Just like those films, his new offering, will also compete for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. That’s three consecutive films for director Nicolas Winding Refn. Not too shabby.

The Neon Demon stars Elle Fanning as an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles for fame and fortune. When she arrives though, a group of beauty-obsessed women will take any means necessary to get her youth vitality. Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Christina Hendricks Alessandro Nivola and Keanu Reeves round out the cast.

The Neon Demon premieres at 2016 Cannes Film Festival in May before a wider release in June. Check out the trailer below. I gotta say, it looks fantastic. If it’s half as good as Refn’s other films, his new flick shouldn’t disappoint.

Sony first announced their plans for a Jumanji remake back in 2015. Given that it was relatively soon after Robin Williams’s death, not surprisingly the project was met with much criticism. Now that some time has passed, the project appears to be back on track and picking up steam. Find out which two actors are in early talks to star in the film.

Pink Debuts New Power Ballad ‘Just Like Fire’

In: Donovan, Movies, Music

With the exception of recording the theme song for Season 13 of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, things on the Pink front have been relatively quiet. She reemerged a few weeks ago with a brilliant cover of the Jefferson Airplane classic “White Rabbit” featured in the trailer for Alice Through The Looking Glass. It appears that the 36-year-old singer also recorded an original song for the Alice In Wonderland sequel.

Just Like Fire” is Pink’s first real single in over three years. She teams up with Max Martin on the power ballad once again. They previously collaborated on “Raise Your Glass,” “Fuckin’ Perfect” and “So What.” Martin co-produced it with Shellback and Oscar Holter. Love the chants leading up to the chorus but it’s her surprising rap break that steals the show in my opinion.

Check out a clip below directed by Dave Meyers which features characters from the Tim Burton-directed film.

the-birth-of-a-nation

Though it has the same name as D.W. Griffith’s 1915 silent film where the Ku Klux Klan was portrayed as a heroic force, this The Birth Of A Nation couldn’t be any more different. Nate Parker who directed, produced, wrote and stars in this film reveals picking the same title as the KKK propaganda film was done in a “very purposeful way,”

“Griffith’s film relied heavily on racist propaganda to evoke fear and desperation as a tool to solidify white supremacy as the lifeblood of American sustenance. Not only did this film motivate the massive resurgence of the terror group the Ku Klux Klan and the carnage exacted against people of African descent, it served as the foundation of the film industry we know today. I’ve reclaimed this title and re-purposed it as a tool to challenge racism and white supremacy in America, to inspire a riotous disposition toward any and all injustice in this country (and abroad) and to promote the kind of honest confrontation that will galvanize our society toward healing and sustained systemic change.” – Parker told Filmmaker.

The second after it screened at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, it already started generating Oscar buzz. It drew comparisons to not only to 12 Years a Slave but also Schindler’s List. The Birth of a Nation won both the grand jury prize and audience award. To boot, it earned the biggest Sundance deal of all-time– FOX Searchlight purchased it for a record $17.5 million.

Movie Synopsis

Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

Armie Hammer, Jackie Earle Haley, Gabrielle Union, Penelope Ann Miller, Mark Boone Junior and Aja Naomi King also star in the film. Check out the first teaser trailer below. The Birth of A Nation arrives in theaters on October 7.
