Scream is arguably one of the most popular horror franchises of all-time. It certainly dominated the 90s. However, when Neve Campbell and company returned for a fourth installment a decade later, the franchise lost its Midas Touch at the box office.
Despite losing its edge, MTV decided to adapt the Kevin Williamson-penned films for a new weekly television series. How they’re going to stretch this out for multiple episodes should be interesting. Even more interesting is that the iconic Ghostface mask won’t make an appearance.
“After a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder, the shocking violence stirs up memories of a killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens – with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart – become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer who’s out for blood.”
Scream was originally intended for a fall release but has now been moved up for a June 30 premiere date. The network debuted the first promo during the 2015 MTV Movie Awards.
Fans will immediately recognize the homage being paid to the iconic opening scene featuring Drew Barrymore in the first Scream flick. Bella Thorne appears to be the first victim of the MTV adaptation. Check out the trailer below, along with a couple of promos.
It’s the final curtain call for the “Dancing Queens” of Mamma Mia. After 12 years on the Great White Way, the ABBA-inspired musical will shut down production on September 5. I guess theatergoers were no longer answering their “S.O.S”
“‘Mamma Mia!’ has celebrated a passionate 14-year love affair with New York City,” creator and global producer Judy Craymer said in a statement. “I am thrilled that ‘Mamma Mia!’ has brought the music of ABBA to Broadway and so grateful to the hundreds of wonderful actors, musicians, stage managers, crew, front of house staff and the other people of the theatre who have given their professional lives and souls to be part of the ‘Mamma Mia!’ family and adventure on Broadway. And a huge thank you to our fans who have come from all over the world to see the show.”
So I have to ask: how bad ARE the asses of guys in England??
Honestly, what passes for hot over there? I have to assume by the zoom ins on what I have to say are the flattest butts I’ve ever seen that squats aren’t exactly a part of a Brit’s daily routine. Still, the accents are pretty sexy so don’t give up quite yet. Set up as Logo’s sister show to Cucumber that follow the story of one older gay man, Banana instead focuses on the youth of gay Manchester and peeks into the often less than glamourous but still full of anal lives of a much younger demographic. This is definitely a recommend to the younger generation looking to see how British gay life compares. Spoiler alert: other than the bad asses and average builds, our trials are pretty universal.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Hillary Clinton threw her hat in the proverbial ring. Though she’s previously denied wanting to launch a second attempt for the Oval Office, the 67-year-old former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State announced she’s in the running for the 2016 US Presidential race.
“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” says Clinton in the clip. “Everyday Americans needs a champion, and I want to be that champion. So you can do more that just get by, you can get ahead and stay ahead. Because when families are strong, America is strong.”
The anticipation of her announcement reached a fever pitch in recent days with many expecting it would take place sometime this weekend. Not surprisingly, social media lit up with tons of support. Also expected was the number of detractors. #WhyImNotVotingForHillary immediately trended. Watch the video below.
Well, I’m never growing old. Or getting into a relationship apparently.
No one does drama quite like the Brits: the humour is so dry it’s depressing. One of Logo’s newest TV series, Cucumber, follows the life of a 50-something gay protagonist in Manchester as he starts life anew after a pretty dramatic break up with his boyfriend of 9 years. Filmed alongside its “sister show”, Banana, Cucumber is a sometimes sad, sometimes funny look at what it means to be an older man in our gay community. I know I sound like I’m ragging a bit on the show- but that’s not it at all- rather, I want to make it clear that what you’re in store for with this one takes a certain type of temperament. If you’re looking for Queer as Folk with daddies, this ISN’T that: it’s… well, really, it’s its own type of show and it is certainly worth the look.
According to Variety, Eddie Redmayne is on top of the list to play the lead in the Harry Potter spin-off. The events of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them takes place in New York seven decades before Potter’s story begins.
Redmayne is being eyed to play Newt Scamander in the highly-anticipated film. The character is described as a “magiczoologist.” For all you Potterheads, you know that’s a person who studies magical creatures. Besides Scamander, there are four other main roles — two American girls and two American boys.
With only one semester of German under my belt, my passing knowledge of the language isn’t enough for me to understand what the narrator is saying in this commercial.
In the end, it doesn’t matter. The model’s moisturizing routine speaks for itself. It’s 46 seconds of a hot man rubbing Aldo Vandini products all over his chiseled naked body.
It’s the sexiest lotion advert I’ve ever seen. Those Europeans have the best commercials and the most lenient standards for television. #GodBless!!! Check it out below.
The Killers frontman’s second stab at a solo album is shaping up quite nicely. On the heels of the surprisingly catchy, “Can’t Deny My Love,” Brandon Flowers releases another solid track off his forthcoming sophomore studio album titled The Desired Effect.
Visually speaking, “Still Want You” pales in comparison to the stunning clip for its predecessor starring Evan Rachel Wood, but it’s nice effort. When not serving laid-back cool hanging out at some warehouse, the 33-year-old singer navigates through a woman’s hands while singing the song’s lyrics. Warren Fu directed the slick black-and-white clip. Check it out below.
