Idina Menzel Releases Trailer For New Christmas Album

In: Donovan, Music

Idina Menzel releasing a Christmas album might be odd to some. After all, the 43-year-old entertainer’s parents divorced during the holidays and she’s Jewish. When asked about the latter by Time Magazine, she replied, if Babs can do it, so can she.

“Most of them were songs that I’ve always wanted to sing. “Do You Hear What I Hear?” is a song Whitney Houston sang back in the ‘80s. Her version is incredible. I’ve always loved that song. If Barbra Streisand can make a Christmas album, I can.” – Idina Menzel

Halloween hasn’t passed yet, but Holiday Wishes is already in stores. Even Menzel thinks it’s too early. Clearly her fans agree as well. It’s pacing to sell only around 18-21,000 copies in its first week of release. I don’t blame her label for jumping the gun though. Holiday-themed albums can be quite lucrative. And if done well, can generate revenue every year during the Yuletide season.

Idina takes on such classics like “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” “Do You Hear What I Hear,” and “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to name a few on the festive LP. Michael Buble duets with her on the later. Give the album teaser a listen below. If you love Idina’s voice, this is a must for this Christmas.

The Quarter Quell mentally destroyed Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Even though Plutarch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) doesn’t think she can handle it, the rebellion sends her back to District 12 to witness her home in ruins. The Capitol destroyed it in retaliation for Katniss’ actions during the games. Naturally, this reignites our beloved heroine’s fighting spirit.

The new teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was released to promote ticket presales available October 29. It features Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat” playing in the background. The somber track fits perfectly with the visual. This bodes well for the movie soundtrack which was curated by the Kiwi singer. She enlisted artists such as Grace Jones, Diplo, Charli XCX and The Lumineers to contribute.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 opens November 21. Check out the new trailer below.

For those who are too young to remember Elizabeth Peña from her star-making turn in La Bamba, you’ll definitely recognize her from her guest appearances on Modern Family. She played the mother of Sofia Vergara’s character Gloria. The actress died on Tuesday at the age of 55. Naturally, her Modern Family co-stars are saddened by her passing.

“The entire cast and crew are very sad to say goodbye to one of our Modern Family members. RIP to the beautiful & talented #ElizabethPena.” – Jesse Tyler Ferguson via Twitter

Her nephew Mario-Francisco Robles revealed Elizabeth died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Pena’s manager says she passed from natural causes, following a brief illness. Pena leaves behind a husband and two kids.

They said they’ll be there for you, and pretty soon, they’ll only be a click away. Netflix announced it’ll start streaming all 236 episodes from the sitcom’s 10 seasons starting January 1, 2015. That’s roughly 83 hours. I know how I’ll be nursing my New Years Eve hangover ;) Sure, I have all the DVDs, but this is far more convenient. What can I say? I’m a lazy bitch ;)

The internet streaming service shared the awesome news with a video featuring The Rembrandts singing the comedy’s theme song. Naturally, Gunther makes an appearance in the clip, serving java as he’s done throughout the series’ run.

As if Friends being available whenever I want wasn’t fantastic enough, fans will get a chance to check out the “lost” episodes where Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) “became a thing.” Who else is excited?

Check out the video announcement below, along with Warner Bros’ recent clip celebrating 236 seconds of the show and NBC’s look back at the sitcom before the series finale aired. Enjoy.

Neil Patrick Harris Hosting 87th Academy Awards

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows

Someone has graduated to the big leagues. After hosting the Tony Awards and Emmy Awards previously, the 41-year-old actor has been tapped to host the 87th annual Academy Awards. The perfect man for the job if you ask me.

If sometime in the future, Neil Patrick Harris is asked to host the Grammys, he could be the first person to have a hosting EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscars and Tony) to his credit. It’s rare for a performer to win each of those statues, but hosting all events has never been done. If anyone can do it, it’s Harris.

The How I Met Your Mother actor takes over Ellen DeGeneres who hosted last year’s event which was seen by 43 million viewers. It saw ratings rise 6%, becoming the most-watched entertainment broadcast in 10 years. Can he topped those numbers? More importantly, can he outdo DeGeneres’ epic selfie pic?

Neil Meron and Craig Zadan have been recruited to produce the Oscars for the third year in a row. The annual extravaganza will take place Sunday, February 22, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Do you think NPH is a great choice to host the event? He has a very similar hosting style to Hugh Jackman. I fully expect an extremely gay-centric production. I.CANT.WAIT!!! Watch his video announcement below and weigh in afterward.

A grave wrong has finally been made right. When Clean Bandit revealed their latest collaboration, “Real Love,” with Jess Glynne, many, including myself, hoped it would be a cover of the classic Mary J. Blige track. Alas, it was an original composition. Thankfully, Glynne heard her fans’ outcry.

The 24-year-old English singer-songwriter delivers an acoustic cover of “Real Love” for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. Her gravely voice really shines during the performance. She does the What’s The 411? single justice. Mary would be proud. Give it a listen below.

The Good Wife Loses An Original Cast Member

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Someone’s following in Josh Charles’ footsteps and leaving The Good Wife. And that someone is Archie Punjabi who has played Kalinda Sharma since the first season. She’ll exit at the end of Season 6. The Emmy award-winning actress will headline a drama pilot for 20th Century TV, under a new talent deal she recently signed.

“Archie is an Emmy award-winning dramatic actress, and rightly so,” said Sharon Klein, 20th’s executive vice president of casting. “Her work on The Good Wife has been extraordinary, and the time has come for her to star in a project of her own. We couldn’t be happier that it will be with us.”

Showrunners for The Good Wife, Robert and Michelle King, also chimed in. Read their statement below.

Several months ago, Warner Bros. revealed a plan to release ten DC Comics films over the next few years. During an investor conference today, the studio revealed the titles of the movies and some previously unconfirmed casting. It’s definitely an ambitious endeavor with a couple years having three major releases.

Not surprisingly, a Wonder Woman film is in the works given that the studio recently revealed her origin story of being Zeus’ daughter. Also in the mix is a Guardians of the Galaxy-like film featuring a band of imprisoned supervillains named Suicide Squad. There’s even another Green Lantern film scheduled for 2020. I highly doubt Ryan Reynolds will return to play the superhero.

Along with the ten films announced, standalone films for Superman and Batman are in the works. Yup, Ben Affleck will headline his own superhero film. Let’s hope this one fares better than Daredevil. Check out the titles below, along with some of the stars playing them.
