Cats

Yesterday, Universal teased the technology that would transform regular looking people like Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, James Corden, Rebel Wilson, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Ian McKellen, and Judi Dench into felines for Cats, a film adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name.

Now the studio has released the first trailer for that film adaptation. And the results, are, well, you should probably just make that judgment for yourself. Check out the trailer below.

Cats Clapperboard

Universal has released a first look featurette Tom Hooper‘s film adaptation of Cats. Based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical which was inspired by on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, the film will feature Lloyd Webber’s iconic music and a world-class cast of dancers, state-of-the-art technology, and dance styles ranging from ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, and street to tap to present the musical to a younger generation in a whole new way.

I can’t say I am overly familiar with Cats, but based on everything in the featurette, it will be using new tools and technologies to transform the actors into feline forms. Check the video below.

The Hustle

At the time the movie was titled Nasty Women, but has since been changed to The Hustle. MGM has released an official trailer for the remake, and you can find it below along with a brief synopsis and a poster.

Pitch Perfect 3

Pitch Perfect 3
Director: Trish Sie
Screenwriter: Kay Cannon
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks, John Michael Higgins
Distributor: Universal Studios
Rated PG-13| 93 Minutes
Release Date: December 22, 2017

Although the Pitch Perfect films have never been strong on narratives or plots, their strength lies in the rapturous a cappella beats of top 40 cover songs and themes of friendship. That has been their constant, and it remains true in Pitch Perfect 3, where there is a razor-thin plot and a list of nonsensical things that don’t even belong in the film in the first place.

However, in its meta sense of humor and cheesiness, along with some rather fun a cappella music and those themes of friendship, Pitch Perfect 3 isn’t a forgettable jazzy blur but semi-entertaining sing-a-long that doesn’t quite remember where it came from. My full review below.

Pitch Perfect 3

It’s hard to deny the absolute charm of Pitch Perfect, and because the first film was so successful, we got a trilogy. Though the second one was a somewhat flawed installment, it still had that hilarious chemistry between the cast. But the upcoming third promises to be the end of the Bellas, at least the ones that started this cinematic a cappella journey.

A new trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 just hit the web, and it reminds us of why this musical ensemble is not only hilarious, but also musically infectious. Check out the latest trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 here below.

‘The Brothers Grimsby’: Jimmy Kimmel’s Audience Reacts To Scene That Almost Led To NC-17 Rating

The Brothers Grimsby Banner Image

Recently Borat and Les Miserables star Sacha Baron Cohen paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! and brought along a clip from his new movie, The Brothers Grimsby. The only problem with this particular clip was that it was too graphic to actually show on television. In fact, the clip was so graphic that it apparently almost got the movie an NC-17 rating. As Cohen reveals at the end they still had to trim a few minutes to get it past the Motion Picture Association of America with an R-rating, so that gives us an idea of what we’re dealing with here.

Because Kimmel was unable to actually show the clip on TV, they instead showed the audience watching and reacting to watching it. A pretty smart marketing tactic, as watching people reacting to something can sometimes make you want to see it even more than any trailer or clip would. It’s just a good thing the Fine Brothers abandoned their evil plot to take control of reaction videos.

You can check out the video below, along with a new red band trailer for the movie.

Mark Strong and Sacha Baron Cohen in The Brothers Grimsby Trailer

Sony Pictures Entertainment has released a couple of new trailers for The Brothers Grimsby, an action comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat, Les Miserables) and Mark Strong (The Imitation Game, Kingsman: The Secret Service) as two brothers who are separated when they are young children and travel very different life paths before they’re eventually reunited. Rebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Gabourey Sidibe, and Isla Fisher also star in the movie.

Sony has released both a trailer, which is pretty lengthy at just over three minutes, and also an international trailer that runs a more expected length at a little over two minutes. You can read more about The Brothers Grimsby and watch one, the other, or both of the trailers below.

Pitch Perfect 2

With Pitch Perfect 2 grossing $260 million worldwide since its release, Universal Pictures has already put Pitch Perfect 3 into development. Last week, it was reported that Kay Cannon (the screenwriter to penned the first two scripts) was coming back to write the third installment. However, leads Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson weren’t optioned for a third film, which meant that if they were to return, they would need to have new deals inked. Elizabeth Banks is also unconfirmed to return, but seeing as how she was the creative force behind the sequel’s success, there could be an offer made to her soon.

Now we are getting word that Kendrick and Wilson are indeed coming back for Pitch Perfect 3, and that the film has been scheduled for a July 21, 2017 release. More on the story below.
