Rita Ora Is ‘Grateful’ On New Ballad

In: Donovan, Movies, Music

Is Rita Ora making herself over as an adult contemporary artist? If so, she certainly has the pipes for it. The British Rihanna premiered a track titled “Grateful” on Billboard.com. The ballad was specifically recorded for the soundtrack of the upcoming romantic-drama Beyond The Lights starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker.

The soaring composition was written by none other than Diane Warren. If you’re going to take on an epic ballad for a movie, Warren is your woman. The 58-year-old legendary songwriter has been nominated a whopping six times for an Academy Award. “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” “How Do I Live” and “Because You Loved Me” are just a few examples.

Surprisingly, she’s never grabbed the big prize. She’s the Susan Lucci of the original song category at the Oscars. Perhaps Rita is her ticket to Oscar glory. Give Ora and Warren’s collaboration a listen below.

“I’m so proud of it and Rita Ora did an amazing vocal,” said Warren. “I am so happy she had me write this song. I think it can be a career song for her. It shows a whole different side to her and I’m hoping we get to hear it all over the radio and see her sing it on the Oscars next year!”

Somebody stop the madness!!! The remake revolution of 2014 is getting out of control. The list of remakes in the works during this development season is growing too rapidly each day.

Rush Hour, In Good Company, The Illusionist, Bachelor Party, Marley & Me, Problem Child and The Money Pit are just a few series being developed based on feature films. FOX already has Monster-In-Law and Big in the works. Now, it can add Will Smith’s hit 2005 film Hitch to the list. The film generated nearly $370 million.

Year in, year out Air New Zealand manages to throw the gauntlet down when creating the most entertaining safety videos. Being a frequent flyer myself, I tune out when the flight attendants do their schtick. Taking a creative approach certainly goes a long way to holding my attention.

Taking inspiration from The Lord Of The Rings cinematic franchise is hardly new for the airline company. I don’t blame them. People are obsessed with all things LOTR-related. Plus, they are the official airline of Middle Earth.

To celebrate the third and final film in The Hobbit TrilogyThe Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the Air New Zealand flight crew has once again donned pointy ears. Director Peter Jackson returns to make another cameo in the clip. This time however, they managed to convince Frodo himself, Elijah Wood, to make an appearance. Check out their self-proclaimed, “Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made,” video directed by Taika Waitit below.

As many of you know, I’m inexplicably infatuated with Mr. Worldwide. Maybe one day, I can get to the bottom of it. Until then, expect to see anything Pitbull-related on the site.

The 33-year-old rapper is usually seen accompanied by scantily-clad women in his music videos. He trades in his trademark video hos in his latest visual for some adorable animated penguins. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private to be exact.

Celebrate” is a family-friendly pop jam for the new animated movie Penguins of Madagascar. It’ll also appear on his forthcoming album Globalization due out November 24. As you’d expect, the video is a tad cheesy but appropriate given its purpose. With that said, I can still see it being a club anthem at every club down on South Beach. Give it a view below.

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Movie Trailer Leaks

The first official trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron was supposed to debut during next week’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Whether or not this leaked trailer is the final version intended to debut, the clip has leaked a week ahead of its scheduled premiere date.

Sucks for ABC which undoubtedly was hoping to get a ratings bump. Marvel, however, took it all in stride and jokingly tweeted, “Dammit, Hydra.” I can totally see Marvel tweaking it a bit before its official release date. UPDATE: Marvel has uploaded the trailer on their official YouTube account.

Most of the dialogue in the clip comes from the sequel’s main villain, Ultron. Newbies Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch get plenty of screen time, but since the trailer doesn’t have much of a narrative and just stunning visuals of our heroes around the world, it’s difficult to figure out exactly what the twins’ roles are.

Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson all return with new faces like Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and James Spader as the voice of Ultron joining in on the fun. The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to open in May 2015. Check out the leaked trailer below.

Official Movie Synopsis

“When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.”

sia-annie-soundtrack

Jay Z and Will Smith give Annie a 21st century update by enlisting Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis to take on the titular role. It’s only natural the soundtrack also gets a makeover.

Sia contributes a whopping three tracks for the film’s soundtrack. The first of them, “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” surfaced online today.

The Aussie sensation not only gives the number an updated pop beat but also switches up some of the lyrics with the help of producer Gerg Kurstin. “Your clothes may be Chanel, Gucci” now replaces the line “Your clothes may be beau Brummelly” as one example. Check out the glossy new production below.

This holiday season, Rob Marshall brings another beloved musical to the big screen. He trades in the killer women of Chicago for singing fairy tale characters in Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods. The musical is considered Sondheim’s best work and one of the greatest musicals ever written.

“I didn’t want this to look like a cartoon world,” says Marshall to Entertainment Weekly. “It’s not sunny, sunny, sunny—we wanted a sense of danger.”

After half glimpses of Johnny Deep as The Big Bad Wolf in a couple of movie trailers, Entertainment Weekly finally gives the first full look. He graces one of the publication’s four collector’s edition covers.

Meryl Streep and MacKenzie Mauzy appear in the artwork above as The Witch and Rapunzel respectively. Check out Anna Kendrick as Cinderella and Chris Pine as Prince Charming and more below on the other covers. Into The Woods hits theaters on Christmas Day this December.
