20 years after Independence Day ‘redefined the event movie genre’ (their words, not mine), a sequel finally invades theaters. Roland Emmerich returns to helm the sequel with Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner and Bill Pullman reprising their roles. Notably missing is Will Smith. His character, Steven Hiller’s, absence is explained on a companion website. To learn his fate, head over to

Independence Day: Resurgence Synopsis

Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

In terms of newcomers, Liam Hemsworth headlines the cast. The Aussie is joined by Joey King, Maika Monroe, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sela Ward and Jessie Usher who plays Smiths and Fox’s grown-up son, Dylan.

Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters on June 24, 2016. Based on the trailer, it looks like the action and special effects have been amped up. Clearly, Emmerich should stick to action flicks and stay clear of depicting LGBT historical events. Stonewall anyone? Check out the trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence below.

It’s the sequel no one was really asking for, but a follow up to Independence Day will hit theaters twenty years after the original blockbuster stormed cineplexes. While it’s highly unlikely Will Smith will return, his on-screen love interest has just signed on the dotted line.

Vivica A. Fox played Jasmine, a single mother slash exotic dance in the 1996 blockbuster film. She would eventually marry Smith’s character. Director Roland Emmerich broke the news via Twitter.

The 50-year-old actress is just the latest from the original cast to return. Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman also agreed to reprise their roles for the sequel. New blood cast for the film include Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jessie Usher. The latter is playing Smith and Fox’s son.

Excited for the sequel? Do you think Will Smith will return for a cameo? Sound off below. Independence Day 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 24, 2016. Check out Emmerich and Fox’s tweets below, along with Fox channeling her inner stripper from the original blockbuster.

7 Minutes In Heaven With Jeff Goldblum

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Totally GAY!

Last week, Mike O’Brien had Olivia Wilde in the closet for “7 Minutes In Heaven“. This week, we’ve got Jeff Goldblum in the closet and it’s a good one.

O’Brien doesn’t hesitate to discuss Jurassic Park and Independence Day, some of Goldblum’s most popular films. Of course what O’Brien asks Goldblum about those films is totally awkward and ridiculous. During the interview, O’Brien (who is in the process of growing a gross mustache) calls his mom to discuss her concerns with young Hollywood. She sounds so cute!

The closet theatre scene in this segment is probably one of the best ones in terms of acting – Goldblum was really good! Lastly, there’s the kiss at the end. You’ll have to watch to find out how it goes down. Enjoy!

On Tuesday, Glee premiered their highly anticipated Michael Jackson tribute episode. The show dazzled with multiple productions numbers including a recreation of Scream featuring Harry Shum Jr. and a non-wheelchair bound Kevin McHale. However, the buck doesn’t stop here. Glee has two new episodes coming that feature some major guest star appearances and we’ve got the pictures to tease you.

This coming Tuesday, Ricky Martin joins the cast as McKinley’s night school Spanish teacher, David. Mr. Shuester (Matthew Morrison) recruits him to help with his week’s assignment of Spanish music. By the looks of the preview, he gets a little more than he bargained for when Martin hits the classroom and sings a rendition of LMFAO’s Sexy And I Know It.

Then, to celebrate Valentine’s Day, the glee club will sing the world’s greatest love songs in an episode titled Heart. This will be Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell’s debut on the show playing the gay dads of Rachel Berry. It’s been confirmed that the two will sing with their daughter and I can’t wait to find out what song it will be. Check out the show’s preview pics below.

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t watched last night’s Glee, then do not read ahead. You’ve been warned, now I can continue. Last night, Glee came to a screeching “oh no he didn’t” halt when Finn (Corey Monteith) got down on one knee and proposed to Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). So now that Finn has popped the question, it seems like it may be due time to meet the parents – Rachel’s dads that is.

For a long time coming, we’ve been wondering who would play the role of Berry’s two gay dads. According to Entertainment Weekly, and TV Line it looks like the shoes have finally been filled. Taking on the roles will be Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell. And, to our amazement and excitement, the duo will be singing on the upcoming February 14 episode.

Both men are Broadway veterans so we know they’ve got the pipes. My question is, what song will Hiram and LeRoy Berry be singing? Maybe a little Dance With My Father by Luther Vandross or Patrick’s suggestion of the classic Temptations tune, My Girl. Whatever the case, I think it’s going to be awesome and I cannot wait for that episode to air. But while we’re on the topic of exclusives and spoilers, I have another surprise for all you Gleeks out there.

If you can’t wait any longer to get your hands on some knowledge about next week’s Glee featuring the songbook of Michael Jackson, then you’ll have to check out these newly released photos from FOX depicting the cast performing some Michael’s most classic songs and emulating his signature moves. I must say, Darren Criss pulls of the look quite well but I am way more excited for the Santana VS Sebastian showdown. Check out all the pics of next week’s episode below.

Movie Review: Morning Glory

In: Donovan, Movies

If you’ve seen the commercials for “Morning Glory“, you’re very well aware the marketing team is pushing comparisons with “The Devil Wears Prada” down your throat. While there are commonalities between them, its those similarities in both films that, in the end, help and hinder this movie. Both feature a young ingenue trying to impress a difficult well-respected industry figure. Roger Michell (Notting Hill) directed the film based on a script written by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada), thus explaining the similarities. While I did enjoy the flick, considering the creative forces behind the film, I expected more.

Rachel McAdams plays Becky Fuller, a recently fired executive producer of a New Jersey daytime show. She receives a second chance to produce another show thanks to IBS executive Jerry Barnes played by Jeff Goldblum. Unfortunately, the job is for fourth-ranked morning show, Daybreak, a joke within the television community. She’s given the task of turning things around within a certain timeframe or the show will be canceled and replaced with *gasp* game shows. While I love my McAdams, she portrays Fuller with so much saccharin and perkiness it would make Mary Tyler Moore want to slit her wrists.

Movie Review: The Switch

In: Donovan, Movies

From the people who brought you “Juno” and “Little Miss Sunshine“, comes this laugh out loud and heartwarming irreverent romantic comedy. While most films in the genre are from the female point of view, “The Switch” is narrated from the male point. You might say it’s a roMANtic comedy. The film stars Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston, who was one of the executive producers.

Kassie Singleton (Jennifer Aniston) decides she wants to have a baby. Despite the objections of her neurotic best friend Wally (Jason Bateman), she chooses to do it alone, with the services of handsome and charming sperm donor Roland (Patrick Wilson). Wally has always had feelings for Kassie, but as his friend (Jeff Goldblum) points out, he missed his chance and she put him in the “friend zone”. But things don’t go to plan, as Wally gets so drunk at Kassie’s “insemination party” that he accidentally spills Roland’s semen and replaces it with his own.

At first you might think and groan that it’s another cookie-cutter Jennifer Aniston rom-com. But to dismiss it like that would be an injustice to yourself. Sure “The Switch” follows certain conventions regarding the leads, but it’s well written and inserts a few obstacles you wouldn’t expect. Instead of relying on cliche gags, the comedy works due to the pitch-perfect performance from Jason Bateman. Even though Aniston shares the marquee, I would almost say her role is a supporting one instead of lead. Because it’s all about Bateman.
