Based on reaction at its Cannes Film Festival premiere, it appears Steven Spielberg has another hit on his hands. Reportedly, the 69-year-old director received a 4 1/2 minute standing ovation after The BFG screened.

Disney just released a new trailer hyping up it’s potential summer blockbuster. Believe it or not, it’s Steven’s first directing gig for the studio.

The film is based on Roald Dahl’s 1982 children’s book of the same name. Melissa Mathison who collaborated with Spielberg on E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, wrote the script. Also returning to work with Spielberg another time is Mark Rylance. He won an Oscar for his work in Bridge of Spies.

The BFG Movie Synopsis

Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s “The BFG” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.

Check out the epic trailer below. The BFG stomps into theaters on July 1.

brad-paisley-demi-lovato-duet

Country fever is certainly contagious these days with pop divas. Everyone lately seems to be pulling a reverse Taylor Swift. Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry to name a few have all dabbled in the genre lately. Demi Lovato is the latest to get her twang on.

The 23-year-old singer teams up with Brad Paisley on his new track “Without A Fight,” the lead single from his forthcoming eleventh studio album. It’s a little odd hearing them sing about make-up sex (try to visualize that), but it kinda works.

The two previously collaborated when Paisley joined Lovato during her performance of “Stone Cold” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Check out the lyric video for their duet below after reading complimentary words from Brad about Demi. Someone seems like they have a little crush.

“Working with Demi is quite amazing. I mean, we’re talking about a singer that I really believe has no limit to the notes she can hit. She can hit notes we can’t hear. You’d have to be a dog to be able to hear some of the pitches that she’s able to get to with her voice,” Brad explained. “It’s a real honor for me. I think she has just taken the music industry by storm, and she is an artist that is just getting started. That’s what’s really fun about this, is being a part of something that I think is her first foray into country. She’s from Dallas, and I have a feeling she’s probably here to stay. She will probably do more things in my format.”

Empire Strikes Back Gets A James Bond-esque Intro

In: Donovan, Movies
star-wars-james-bond-intro

The Star Wars franchise has one of the most memorable title sequences in cinematic history. That iconic title crawl is instantly recognizable.

What if the space opera implemented another equally memorable sequence from another beloved franchise? Thanks to School of Visual Arts student Kurt Rauffer, we know exactly what that combination would look like.

“The franchise really sparked my imagination as a child,” Rauffer described the video. “It not only let me exercise my imagination but also supplied me with some of the happiest memories as I watched it with my family.”

Rauffer created a gorgeous new intro for Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back using 007’s signature gun barrel imagery and silhouettes. The result is nothing short of spectacular.

Adding even more authenticity to the clip is the fact Kurt used Radiohead’s rejected song from the newest Bond film, Spectre. Check out the new title sequence below.

nao-fool-to-love

The second I heard Nao, I immediately became a fan. With each new track she releases, I’ve become even more obsessed. Her silky smooth vocals are absolutely heavenly.

I’m not the only one in love with Nao. It appears Ariana Grande is a fan as well. She recently faced plagiarism claims that “Be Alright” heavily borrowed from Mura Musa’s “Firefly” featuring Nao.

The 28-year-old rising British talent recently premiered the accompanying visual for “Fool To Love.” She doesn’t appear anywhere in the clip, unless of course, she’s the invisible force giving actor Ashley Walters an ass-whooping. Dude is getting tossed around like a rag doll all over a mid-century-designed apartment. Check out the clip below.

dionne-warwick-biopic

At a press conference during the Cannes Film Festival, Dionne Warwick announced an upcoming biopic based on My Life, As I See It: An Autobiography, Dionne. The book chronicled her life from the years 1962 to 1968. The 75-year-old legend also revealed the cast.

Former Destiny’s Child singer, LeToya Luckett would play Dionne, while Danny Glover and Olympia Dukakis were cast as Warwick’s father and Warwick’s mentor Marlene Dietrich respectively. However, the most interesting addition was Lady Gaga. Mother Monster was reportedly selected to play Cilla Black, Warwick’s “musical nemesis.” It appears Gaga’s involvment was false.

Previously, Nick Jonas revealed that his breakup with former Miss USA Olivia Culpo served as inspiration for his album, Last Year Was Complicated. If their relationship was anything as dramatic as shown in Jonas’ new clip, “Chainsaw,” it’s probably a good thing they broke. Probably spared them plenty of broken dishes based on the video.

“It became very clear what it was going to be about, after the breakup,” he told OUT. “I just dove in headfirst and wrote about all of it. I think it was the most meaningful relationship I’ve ever been in.”

Directed by Luke Monaghan, Nick reminisces about his ex, played by Victoria’s Secret Angel Sara Sampaio, in the visual. He walks around his adorably-furnished cabin that they shared together. When he’s done walking down memory lane, he decides to take a chainsaw to a sofa before torching down the entire place. I guess that’s one way of getting closure. Check out the clip below.

meghan-trainor-me-too-fall

All I have to say is “OUCH”!!! Poor Meghan Trainor. If you love watching singers take a tumble, this clip is definitely a must-watch.

The 22-year-old stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote her new album, Thank You, out today. Dressed in a glittery blue dress, M-Train sang her latest single “Me Too.”

She actually navigated all the dance moves in her high heel shoes quite well. It wasn’t until the end of the performance that she stumbled. She even took down the microphone stand along with her. This gives a whole new meaning to the term “mic drop.”

Check out the sassy performance below and the kinda hilarious fall at the end of the clip.
