little-mix-black-magic-music-video

As rumored, the witchy teen flick The Craft serves as inspiration for Little Mix’s new music video. The girl group play awkward nerdy high school students before turning to witchcraft to reverse their social status at school.

The visual, directed by Director X, is a bit literal but it’s fun nonetheless. The song is so catchy, I don’t mind the slightly cheesy concept. I’ve been playing it nonstop since first hearing it. To boot, the ladies look fantastic in the clip.

Speaking of “Pretty Girls,” the British quartet recently threw a little shade with regards to passing on the Britney Spears-Iggy Azalea collabo. “We knew we could do better,” when referring to the track. They clearly looked into a crystal ball, because they dodged a bullet. “Pretty Girls” dropped to No. 38 in only its second week on the Billboard Hot 100.

With that being said, I’d love to hear the demo they recorded. If it’s anything like their Instaoke performance of that track for Capital FM, it’s probably sensational. They also covered “Cheerleader” and “Anaconda” during that interview. Check out their covers, along with the “Black Magic” music video below.

cruel-intentions

The teen version of Dangerous Liaisons set in modern-day New York wreaked havoc on the box office in 1999. Cruel Intentions raked in over $75 million with only a $10 million production budget behind it. Not too shabby. Two sequels featuring none of the main cast were filmed, but went straight to home video. Not surprising.

The ladies of the teen flick met up recently for a girls night out. Reese Witherspoon shared a couple of pics of her posing with her former co-stars, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

They all look genuinely happy to be together again. After seeing the below photos, I’m craving a sequel but only if the original cast reunited on-screen. Check out the epic reunion below.

grease-fox-cast

FOX originally intended to broadcast its live Grease production for sometime in 2015. The musical was pushed to Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016 when the network couldn’t find the right person to play Danny Zuko. Love him or not these days, but John Travolta slayed it back then. Definitely a hard act to follow.

I’m pretty sure FOX isn’t any closer to finding its leading man, but at least the rest of the cast is starting to take shape. Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens were the first to snag roles in the highly-anticipated project- Sandy and Rizzo respectively. Another Pink Lady has joined the cast. Find out who below.

jesse-eisenberg-american-ultra

Who doesn’t love a good pot-themed comedy? Dazed & Confused and Pineapple Express quickly come to mind as two of the best. Hoping to follow their success at the box office and stoner households around the world is Jesse Eisenberg’s new film, American Ultra. Mark Zuckerberg, definitely he is not, in this action comedy.

Eisenberg plays a stoner in a small town who finds his life disrupted when his past comes to haunt him. Apparently, at one time he was a trained assassin. Check out the official synopsis below.

Movie Synopsis

An action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.

American Ultra re-teams Eisenberg and Stewart for the first time in five years. They previously starred in Greg Mottola’s Adventureland. Joining them in the film are Topher Grace, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman and John Leguizamo.

The film smokes up at theaters on August 21. Check out the entertaining red band trailer below.

transgender-common-questions

Even though sometimes certain questions can come off ignorant, I’d like to think when people inquire about things, it’s coming from a place of love and wanting to educate themselves.

BBC rounded up six transgenders to talk about questions they often hear. From, “How do you have sex?” to “Which bathroom do you use?,” these individuals answer them with the straight-up facts and a bit of humor.

Admit it. There are probably things you’ve always wanted to ask a trans person, but probably thought you shouldn’t. Watch the clip below and inform yourself. In the wise words of G.I. Joe, ‘knowing is half the battle.’

hollywood-reporter-lena-dunham-amy-schumer

The Hollywood Reporter holds roundtable discussions all the time featuring celebrities talking about the industry and their experiences. Usually, they’re held when a major awards show is on the horizon. This one specifically features television comedy actresses for the publication’s Emmy coverage.

Lena Dunham (Girls), Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer), Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin), Tracee Ellis Ross (black-ish), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) open up about sexism and racism within the industry. It’s interesting to hear their thoughts and, more importantly, situations they’ve encountered blatant misogyny. It’s shocking in this day and age that it’s as prevalent as it is in Hollywood.

The full episode doesn’t premiere until Sunday, August 16, but snippets from each lady have been shared. Based on what I’ve seen, I can’t wait to watch it. These ladies are articulate, hilarious and charming. Check out a clip featuring each actress below. They’re definitely worth watching.

Hilary Duff Debuts Tinder-less Sparks Music Video

The fans have spoken, and loudly I might have. Hilary Duff and her team caved to demands and released an alternate version of her “Sparks” music video. Dubbed, ‘Fan Demanded Version,’ the new clip doesn’t feature any of Duff’s Tinder dates. Personally, I liked the original, but glad there is one without her dates as well.

On a side note, did you watch Hilary perform this track on Ellen a few weeks ago. Love Duff and this new track, but the performance was unpolished and awkward to say the least. Whenever I hear this song now, I keep visualizing Hilary’s out-of-sync arm swings. Someone needs to spend more time rehearsing with her dancers. Check out the performance below and you’ll see what I mean.

FOX Developing Urban Cowboy TV Series

In: Donovan, Movies, Music
urban-cowboy-remake

Normally, the idea of any remake nauseates me, especially when it involves a classic. However, this one actually has me excited. Instead of trying to recapture the magic at the box office, FOX is bringing Urban Cowboy to television.

The series will follow the star-crossed relationship of Sissy and Bud as it unfolds against the gritty backdrop of rodeos, oil refineries, line dancing clubs and other aspects of modern-day Texas.

Adapting the John Travolta and Debra Winger classic for the small screen is a brilliant idea. Reportedly, the network is eying the project as a possible companion series for their mega-hit Empire. Given that the film is equally memorable for its soundtrack, this is a match made in heaven.

Are you looking forward to this potential series? I am. It’s going to be Empire meets Dallas meets Nashville. Check out a few of the memorable tracks from the film. My favorite is the Boz Scaggs track written by a young David Foster.
