First Look At Whitney Houston Lifetime Biopic

In: Donovan, Movies

During her time on America’s Next Top Model, Yaya DaCosta proved she could take a fierce photo. Had there been a challenge during her cycle where contestants had to emulate a celebrity, DaCosta would’ve won hands down. I had to do a double take of Yaya posing as Whitney Houston. She may not have the legendary singer’s pipes, but man, does she have her look down pat.

Lifetime’s upcoming Houston biopic, directed by Angela Bassett, just started shooting but the first official promo photo has been released. Entertainment Weekly snagged the first look. Yaya recreates Houston’s iconic album cover for her sophomore effort. “I just looked at the picture and did the pose,” says Yaya to EW.com. Check it out below.

exodus-gods-and-kings-trailer

This isn’t your dad’s Moses in The Ten Commandments. Christian Bale’s take on the biblical figure looks epic. Naturally, with director Ridley Scott at the helm, you wouldn’t expect anything else. After all, this is the man who gave us Blade Runner, Alien, Gladiator and Black Hawk Down.

Exodus: Gods and Kings brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues. The visuals effects look state-of-the-art. Rounding out the cast are Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley.

Exodus: Gods and Kings hits theaters on December 12, 2014, just in time for awards season. I wouldn’t be surprised if Scott scores another Best Director Oscar nod. So far he’s notched three nominations (Thelma & Louise, Black Hawk Down, Gladiator) but no wins. Check out the trailer below.

mockingjay-teaser

In the first Hunger Games: Mockingjay teaser, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) delivered a menacing address to the people of Panem, warning them to not resist the system. Once again, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) stands silent beside Snow’s throne during the speech. Johanna (Jena Malone) makes her first appearance. She also stands mute while Snow talks about ‘unity.’

This time, however, Snow’s broadcast is hijacked by the rebellion. Beetee (Jeffrey Wright) appears on the screen to give an urgent message from District 13. “The Mockingjay lives,” he proclaims. Check out the latest clip below. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay hits theaters in November.

Mark my words. In the next decade, every Walt Disney animated classic will receive a live adaptation. At the rate the Mouse House is going, it certainly a possibility. They’ve already given Alice In Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty this treatment. Not to mention, upcoming adaptations including The Jungle Book, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast are all on the way. The studio just announced another project in the works. Find out what it is below.

sharknado-2-second-one-trailer

With the premiere date of July 30 fast approaching, SyFy has released its first full trailer for Sharknado 2: The Second One. The network previously debuted a teaser trailer.

The new clip features, naturally, more sharks falling from the sky. This time, the freak weather system unleashes mayhem on the poor residents of New York City, wreaking havoc on some of the city’s most cherished iconic landmarks. The sequel promises more bloody carnage and cheesy situations (and lines) than its predecessor.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are joined this time by Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath. Other notable names making a guest appearance include Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Judah Friedlander, Andy Dick and Perez Hilton. Check out the new trailer below.

July 2014: Five Must-See Movies

In: Matt, Movies
july-2014-movie-preview

HELLO JULY! It’s officially summer here in Vancouver which means I’m not pale anymore YAY!!! Even though I love spending all of my time on the beach during these few gorgeous months, it’s always nice to cool off in an air conditioned theatre here and there.

For this month’s picks I’ve tried to stay away from the big summer blockbusters (Tammy, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Hercules and The Purge: Anarchy). Some of them crept in but most of my picks this month are limited release only. That means you might have to dig a little to find a theatre near you that’s actually playing them but I think these ones will be worth the effort.

Check out my picks for must-see movies below!

jimi-all-is-my-side

Despite producers’ request to use Jimi Hendrix’s music being denied, the singer’s biopic forged ahead. Jimi: All Is by My Side first debuted at 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. At long last, the Hendrix biopic debuts its first trailer to the general public.

Directed by 12 Years A Slave‘ John Ridley, André 3000 takes on the titular role. Even without the legendary rocker’s catalog, the Outkast frontman does a believable job of embodying the late singer. He even learned to play the guitar like Hendrix — left handed with a right-hand guitar strung upside down — to boost the authenticity of the film.

Imogen Poots, Hayley Atwell, Ruth Negga and Adrian Lester also star in the film. Jimi: All Is by My Side hits theaters September 26. Check out the trailer below.
