Dwayne Johnson To Star In Both ‘Black Adam’ and ‘Shazam’
eelyajekiM   |  

Black Adam DC Comics

As Warner Bros. unite the various DC heroes for the DCEU, one hero’s spot on the superhero ensemble remained uncertain. It has only been a few years since we’ve heard anything about WB’s Shazam, but early reports say that he might not even be on the team. Since Dwayne Johnson accepted the role of Black Adam in 2014, the actor as called the character an anti-hero, which is contrary to how he’s normally depicted in the comics, which is to serve as a villain to the heroic Shazam.

Now there are reports that Black Adam and Shazam will be two separate films entirely. Not only that, but Black Adam will also appear in Shazam as well. More on the story below.

The Fate of the Furious starring Vin Diesel

The Fast and Furious franchise has seen many title changes in the past, but there’s some things that remain consistent — fast cars and family. Universal has dropped the first trailer for The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious film franchise. F. Gary Gray takes over the director’s chair this time, taking the film to all new locations, and amping up the action with even more thrills.

‘Baywatch’ Trailer: Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron Save Lives One Boobs and Balls Joke At A Time
eelyajekiM   |  

Baywatch

The fact that Seth Gordon is behind the lens for Baywatch pretty much tells us that the film reboot will go for a more comedic slant than its cheesy drama TV counterpart. And the first trailer for the film pretty much proves that.

Paramount has released the first trailer for Baywatch, starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Jon Bass, Rob Huebel, and Hannibal Buress. Clearly, the reboot wants to be something else or at least mimic what made the 21 Jump Street films so successful. Find out if it meets your expectations by watching the trailer below.

Last weekend, many turned to the movie theaters to get away from families or crazed shoppers. While there was a lot to offer, Moana ended up being the number one film of the weekend, taking in $82 million in its debut.

Lin-Manuel Miranda On Creating The Music For ‘Moana’ and Finding Dwayne Johnson’s Vocal Range
eelyajekiM   |  

Moana

Music was a huge part of making Moana great, and none of that would have been accomplished without the collaboration of Grammy-award winner Opetaia Foa’i, Disney alum Mark Mancina, and (soon to be) EGOT Lin-Manuel Miranda. Each one of them brought in their own personalities to the film, with Foa’i bringing the music of the Polynesian culture, Mancina with his Disney experience, and Miranda, who really needs no reference unless you haven’t heard of the Tony Award-winning Hamilton. The songs are a celebration of culture and finding one’s identity, and they are so much fun that they don’t feel overly preachy.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Miranda and Foa’i about the music of Disney Moana, their inspiration, working together, and discovering Dwayne Johnson’s vocal range. Check out all of that below.

Disney’s ‘Moana’: Dwayne Johnson & Auli’i Cravalho On The Spirit Of Aloha
eelyajekiM   |  

MOANA

Dwyane Johnson stars as Maui, a boisterous demi-god who is a trickster and can morph into any animal he chooses, in Disney’s latest animated feature Moana. While the character can let some of his godly acts and heroism feed his ego, it is Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho), the 16-year-old daughter of a chief, who teaches him a lesson in modesty and helps him find his lost identity as she searches for her own. Together, they voyage across the ocean to return the Heart of Tefiti to its rightful place in hopes that it will restore all life to what it once was.

We were recently invited to sit down with fellow journalists at the press conference for the film, where Johnson and Cravalho talked about bringing the spirit of Aloha to Moana and what it meant for them to share their Polynesian culture with the world. Check out what they had to say below.

Movie Review: Disney’s ‘Moana’
eelyajekiM   |  

Moana and Maui

Moana
Director: Ron Clements and John Musker
Screenwriter: Jared Bush
Cast: Auli’i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Alan Tudyk, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 113 minutes
Release Date: November 23, 2016

These are trying times. With an unknown future ahead of us, there is no doubt in my mind that we will need more movies like Moana. Not in terms of just needing more animated features, even though I really do love those, but in terms of delivering a powerful message of searching for identity, female empowerment, never forgetting where you come from, and remembering that not only do princesses come in just more than one color and they too can do a man’s job as well.

Moana reminds us just how far Disney Animation has come, and with a great voice cast and some catchy tunes, it will be a film that is recognized for more than just its animation, but also for celebrating and honoring a culture. Just don’t forget to bring idiotic chicken along with you, because they are good for more than just a few laughs. My full review below.
