Fifty Shades Darker Debuts First Teaser Video

“Are you ready for something darker?”

To that, I say a resounding ‘HELL YEAH!!!!’ Fifty Shades of Grey wasn’t completely awful, but it committed the most heinous of crimes. The erotic film was one big snoozefest. I honestly can’t remember the last time I was in the theater constantly looking at my watch for it to end.

With author E.L. James’ husband Niall Leonard penning the script and a new director which has not been named yet, I’m cautiously optimistic they’ll deliver a better film. Universal Pictures announced recently, Fifty Shades Darker will be “more of a thriller.” Here’s hoping.

The first teaser video for the sequel just dropped. It’s pretty much the promo pic released last week featuring Jamie Dornan putting on a mask. Check it out below. Fifty Shades Darker slings its way into theaters in 2017.

The Director’s Cut Of 54 Finally Being Released

In: Donovan, Movies
54-directors-cut

Director Mark Christopher’s film was originally supposed to show all the decadence that took place at the famed New York nightclub. However, it was plagued by reshoots and a strong editing hand by the studio.

Instead of being a racy visual feast, it was watered down to a lame love story between Ryan Phillippe and Neve Campbell. The silver lining was the film provided one groovy disco soundtrack. That Ultra Nate-Amber-Jocelyn Enriquez dance track, “If You Could Read My Mind” was, and still is everything. 17 years after 54 first hit theaters, the director’s original version will be available for everyone to see on June 2.

Christopher showed his director’s cut at Outfest in LA back in 2008. He reportedly added over 45 minutes to the original theatrical release. Included in that footage was the long-rumored Phillippe-Brecklin Meyer gay kiss. A couple of years ago, a grainy version leaked online. I bet it’ll be even hotter in digital HD.

Why now, you ask? It’s due to the overwhelmingly positive response at its screening at the San Francisco International Film Festival on Friday, April 24. I’m definitely checking out the director’s cut. Check out the original trailer below.

Not that I’ve ever starred in a big budget action flick, but I’ve gotta imagine the promotional part is far more arduous than filming the actual movie. Especially these days, where international box office grosses are equally, if not more important than domestic numbers. The itinerary is non-stop for months.

With that being said, there are probably interviews that are more fun than others. Such is the case with this one from MTV. Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Cobie Smulders break off into pairs and are shown a series of photos highlighting the guns of the cast.

I thought I’d do well, but pathetically, I only guessed two correctly. Perhaps, I need more up close and personal time with the Chrises to improve my score ;)

Check out the clip below. Avengers: Age of Ultron invades theaters this weekend.

Clearly, Woody Allen became smitten with Emma Stone while filming Magic in the Moonlight. The prolific director once again taps the Easy A actress as his leading lady for his latest offering.

Movie Synopsis

On a small town college campus, philosophy professor Abe Lucas (Joaquin Phoenix) finds himself in an existential crisis, but he discovers a new purpose in life when he enters into a relationship with one of his students (Stone).

Rounding out the cast are Jamie Blackley and the amazing Parker Posey. Based on the trailer, the film is everything you’d expect from a Woody Allen film. Plenty of quirkiness, darkness and romance. Irrational Man enrolls into theaters on July 17. Watch the trailer below.

“Working on something big right now in Europe. To learn more follow me on Fahlo. He is so hot right now,” Justin Beiber wrote on Facebook a couple of days ago. Hindsight is 20/20 and it was pretty obvious what the Canadian singer was hinting at.

Ben Stiller announced the 21-year-old is making a cameo in Zoolander 2 by posting a photo of the two engaging in a Blue Steel face-off. Valiant effort on The Beibs part, but Stiller is still the undisputed king when it comes to serving the iconic look.

Excited to see Justin’s cameo in the highly-anticipated sequel? Zoolander 2 struts its way into theaters on February 12, 2016. Weigh in below.

Kerry Washington isn’t the only ABC star moonlighting on HBO. Her TGIT lineup compatriot Viola Davis is also starring and producing a biopic for the cable channel.

Like Washington, Davis is playing a historical figure. In the latter’s case, it’s one of the most influential and important African-American women in history. The How To Get Away With Murder actress is set to portray Civil Rights Harriet Tubman in a biopic for HBO.

After seeing Sofia Vergara at the recent ACM Awards, some viewers were scratching their heads as to why the Modern Family actress was there. Obviously, she was there to promote her film Hot Pursuit co-starring Reese Witherspoon, but why appeal to the country crowd. Now, it all makes sense.

Miranda Lambert just debuted her offering to the film soundtrack. With Mrs. Blake Shelton channeling her inner lawbreaker with Carrie Underwood in “Something’ Bad,” she seemed an obvious choice to deliver the lead cut for the film. Lambert revealed to Ryan Seacrest on how she got involved.

“Reese texted me and told me about the movie and wanted me to write something or sing or both. I got inspired,” she said. “It was a bit of a Thelma and Louise theme and that’s totally up my alley. It is really so fun to be part of it.” – Miranda Lambert told Ryan Seacrest

Securing a top musician is a savvy business move by studios since soundtracks generate big business these days. Snagging Miranda seems to work on paper, but “Two of a Crime” is a bit underwhelming. It’s kinda all over the place. It’s a bit country and rock with some Latin flavor added in as an afterthought.

I suppose she was only following Reese’s orders who advised her to whip up something “Southern and a Latin flavor.” That’s not even the oddest thing. For some reason ,the last half of the song is mostly instrumental. So weird. I’ll chalk up this fail to it being Miranda’s first time writing a song specifically for the big screen. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.

21-jump-street-female-spinoff

Sony Pictures is all about girl power these days. They already have a female-driven Ghostbusters in the works and now comes this.

Reportedly, the studio is developing a female-centric 21 Jump Street spinoff. With Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum doing blockbuster business with the first two installments, it’s only natural the studio attempt to milk every last dollar from the franchise. According to Tracking Board, Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs have been hired to write the script.

Female buddy flicks can sometimes be quite lucrative. The Heat co-starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy was summer hit a couple years ago.

Does a girl spinoff pique your interest? If it doesn’t come to fruition, at least fans can look forward to the threequel titled 23 Jump Street which is also currently in development. Sound off below.
