Mickey Mouse Turns 90, Disney Celebrates in Style

by

As with anything done in full-fledged Disney style, Mickey Mouse’s 90th Birthday is a thing to celebrate, as well as cleverly market. ABC will be the host to a two-hour prime-time special showcasing the milestone: “Mickey’s 90th Spectacular.” To remind Disney fans where it all started, Disney is making sure the birthday is a big to-do. The special will feature dancers, drummers, indoor fireworks—you name it, they have most likely dreamed it up and made it happen for the television celebration. How else would Disney celebrate Mickey Mouse turning 90?


Who Will Perform On “Mickey’s 90th Spectacular”?

“Mickey’s 90th Spectacular” is host to performances by Josh Groban, Meghan Trainor, and K-pop group NCT 127, and more. Kristen Bell, the voice of Anna in Frozen, will also be present. Not to mention Disney Executives such as Robert A. Iger. The event won’t just stop at the TV special, though, as Disney plans to host events at their theme parks into the new year. Truly, it is marketing well played.

First appearing in 1928’s “Steamboat Willie,” Mickey starred in the first cartoon to include synchronized sound. Since, he has appeared in over 130 short and full-length films, ten of which were nominated for Academy Awards for Best Animated Short Film. Not only that, Mickey Mouse was the first cartoon character to be recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To say that the little mouse isn’t a big deal is wholly inaccurate. The Disney parks plan to release commemorative merchandise, new, limited desserts, and at Disney World, a Mickey “street jubilee.” According to The Licensing Letter, Mickey and his animated friends bring in annual retail sales of $3.2 billion or more. And that does not include the sales at Disney Theme Parks! Don’t miss the special on ABC; check here for broadcasting information.

Brie Larson Wants a Metroid Movie and Fans Aren’t Upset About It

by

Yet another star took the internet into a bit of a craze this week after showcasing her Halloween costume. Brie Larson has already had increasing success in the film world. From winning an Oscar for her performance in the movie Room to recently scoring the role of Carol Danvers in the upcoming Captain Marvel. If you’re a follower of the MCU, you’ve probably already seen the trailer. But Larson doesn’t want to stop. Fans of Metroid are already losing their minds over the photo Brie Larson shared: her Halloween costume as “Zero Suit Samus.” After a few reactions to her posts, Brie Larson expressed her desire for a Metroid movie.

Brie Larson as “Zero Suit Samus” for Halloween

Metroid’s Samus Aran is an iconic female video game character. Thanks to the Nintendo franchise, we have a female bounty hunter who battles Space Pirates and biological weapons (Metroids and Phazon, for example). So far, there have been fourteen game releases since the first Metroid release in 1986. Nintendo recognizes the Metroid franchise as one of their most successful series’ of games. Check out the original post below by @brielarson via Instagram:

 

 

So when you get an actress who has already landed a huge role like Captain Marvel and put her in a Samus suit for Halloween, fans are definitely going to go crazy. Fans have wanted to see a Metroid film adaption for years, and although it would be a large undertaking, perhaps Larson’s desire to play Samus—which she expressed via Twitter— may speed up the process. Who knows. We can only hope.

Fan Reactions: Brie Larson Wants a Metroid Movie, But How Do the Fans Feel?

Sure, there are probably some other actors out there who could pull off playing the lead in a Metroid film. I can think of a few. However, with the weight of success that Larson already has behind her, it may just be a match that could come to fruition. And to be honest, most of the fan reactions via Twitter are anything but negative. See a few of them below.

Want to keep the Halloween spirit going for a little while longer? Check out some of the best celebrity costumes this Halloween.

Cute Celebrity Couples

Once Again, Sofia Vergara Tops the Highest-Paid TV Actress List

by

Curious which TV actresses made the highest-paid list from Forbes this year? This month, Forbes released the list and it’s not too surprising based on the last 7 years. Sitting at the very top of the list, Sofia Vergara is now on her 7th year in a row as the reigning salary for actresses in TV. Yes, once again, Sofia Vergara tops the highest-paid TV actress list. According to Forbes, Vergara made $42.5 million from June 1, 2017 to June 1, 2018. How does she do it? The Modern Family star is financially savvy. It would seem that her earnings aren’t just from her role on the hit show. The $42.5 million is a combination of her TV earnings, endorsements and licensing deals. Thanks to lucrative collaborations, such as her collaboration with SharkNinja Coffee and Rooms To Go, Vergara receives nearly half of her salary from other business deals. Vergara’s manager and business partner, Luis Balaguer, told Forbes in recent years that their “attention is on the people watching Modern Family and how to appeal to them outside of the show, too…Our endorsement department is a well-oiled machine.”

Who Else Made the Highest-Paid TV Actress List?

Coming in at No. 2 is Kaley Cuoco from The Big Bang Theory. Her yearly earnings were $24.5 million. Cuoco is followed by Grey’s Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo with a still-impressive $23.5 million. Pompeo spoke to The Hollywood Reporter back in January about her earnings: “When your face and your voice have been part of something that’s generated $3 billion for one of the biggest corporations in the world, you start to feel like, ‘OK, maybe I do deserve a piece of this.” We have to agree. 

Curious to see who else made the list? Find out for yourself here.

How the New ‘Charmed’ Modernizes Fashion

by

If you watched the original ‘Charmed’ series, you know that the magic wasn’t the only thing to watch it for. The ‘90s through the early 2000s had their own charm when it came to fashion, and the three sisters embodied that. However, it’s totally ridiculous at times to assume that these women would run around fighting demons and warlocks in heels, right? The new reboot of the beloved show is still keeping it fashionable, but within more reasonable boundaries. The costume designer on the CW’s update of Charmed is Mandi Lane. She worked on the original series but didn’t design the costumes. But now that she’s in charge, she says she’s “gonna take this and run with it.”

Charming Viewers With Costuming: How the New ‘Charmed’ Modernizes Fashion

Lane’s approach is a more subtle one, in line with some of the fashion trends we see today. Instead of seeing cloaks or witch hats, or totally inconvenient wardrobe choices, she likes to include “elements…[from] their past…in accessories…in necklaces.” She says of the costumes: “I think they’re more empowered, they’re a little more serious, these costumes. They’re very character-oriented. I love the original sexy costumes, but I think this day and age, you can say sexy in so many different ways, too.”

Is Michael Bublé Retiring From Music? Not a Chance

by

Is Michael Bublé retiring from music? The answer is no. Amidst recent rumors that Michael Bublé was leaving the music biz for good, Michael Bublé’s rep told Us Weekly that the pop singer “is not going anywhere.” This occurred just hours after rumors began to swirl, thanks to an interview with Bublé from Daily Mail. The 43-year-old singer was only joking when he said that it was his “last interview.” Apparently, he has a lot of faith in the success of his new album, Love, which drops on November 16. Bublé joked with Daily Mail, “I’m retiring from the business. I’ve made the perfect record and now I can leave at the very top.”

Bublé’s Rep Assures the Press: “He is Absolutely Not Retiring”

According to Us Weekly, Bublé’s rep claims that the Canadian singer was “talking about the emotions he was feeling during his son’s illness.” Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, faced a devastating diagnosis two years ago: their son Noah had liver cancer. The crooner has been very open with the press about the emotional process. Bublé admitted to Australia’s Today: “It sucks and it still sucks. What we went through is the worst possible thing you can go through as a parent and maybe as a human being.” Although Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, are struggling, they remain positive, especially with the help of supportive people. “Some days when we wished we didn’t wake up, when we did, we felt the love of those people…It gave us faith in humanity.”

Fan Reactions to Josh Radnor’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Debut

by

The ABC medical drama Grey’s Anatomy premiered its fifteenth season at the end of September. Fans are already giving mixed reactions. One of the most recent? Josh Radnor’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ debut. Apparently, fans are divided on the idea of Josh Radnor as the new love interest for Meredith. Nonetheless, Meredith Grey’s latest attempt at dating was a blind date with John, played by Radnor, who is perhaps best known for his previous role on How I Met Your Mother. People confirmed that Radnor would be joining the cast prior to the episode’s airdate

Mixed Opinions on Josh Radnor’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Debut

Maybe it’s just the idea of Meredith getting back into the dating game. Maybe it’s comparison to Patrick Dempsey. Either way, it seems as though the widowed mother of three will indeed be dating this season. In last Thursday’s episode, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) seems to hit it off with John (Josh Radnor) until he makes a comment about single mothers. Is that the end of that? Possibly. At any rate, it seems like many viewers are hoping that the romance with Radnor’s character is a no-go. But then again, there are some fans who are all for it and some who simply don’t know how to feel. Obviously, we won’t know what’s happening until the season progresses. Although there is a lot of noise around this subject, Radnor’s reappearance is not confirmed.  Is anyone else team Radnor out there? Take a look at some fan reactions via Twitter below.

Tim Allen on What to Expect From ‘Toy Story 4’: ‘It is so Emotional’

by

Tim Allen, the memorable voice of Buzz Lightyear, opened up about a few things to expect from the upcoming installment. Although he remains mostly tight-lipped, he told The Talk this week that ‘Toy Story 4’ will have “an incredibly great story.” Co-host Sara Gilbert questioned the actor about the new film, to which Allen explained, “I gotta resist getting emotional…It is so emotional, it’s so funny, it’s so big, the idea they’ve come up with, I’m startled. I couldn’t even get through the last scene”. Of course, before revealing too much, Allen had to step back. “I just can’t do it. I can’t give any more away.” Although Allen didn’t give fans a lot to go off of, his personal investment in the Toy Story films does give us hope. A better installment than Toy Story 3? We will just have to see.

‘Toy Story 4’ and Returning Characters

Tim Allen spoke of some new character additions to the film. But that doesn’t mean we won’t see the return of original cast members. Tom Hanks (Woody), Joan Cusack (Jessie), Bonnie Hunt (Dolly) and Laurie Metcalf (Mrs. Davis) will all be returning in ‘Toy Story 4′. And if you’ve always been a fan of the Toy Story soundtracks, Randy Newman, who composed the music for the films, is also set to compose the soundtrack for the fourth movie. Toy Story was a huge hit in 1995, a remarkable success for both Disney and Pixar. To say the fans have some high expectations is putting it lightly. The release date is scheduled for June 2019, just in time for your summer blockbuster list.

Jennifer Hudson Discusses Her Dream Role as Aretha Franklin

by

Entertainment News alert: Actress and singer Jennifer Hudson discusses her dream role as Aretha Franklin on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. At the beginning of 2018, it was announced that Hudson would be starring as Franklin, the unprecedented Queen of Soul. Now Hudson has gone on to say how much the role means to her personally. Hudson spoke about the role to Ellen DeGeneres, admitting, “It’s always been my dream to play Aretha, and it’s actually happening.”

Aretha Franklin Requested Jennifer Hudson Specifically for the Biopic

The film was in negotiations before Aretha Franklin passed on August 16 of pancreatic cancer.  In fact, it was Franklin who had requested Hudson play the role. “It blows my mind. I’ve always looked up to Aretha and to portray her—I cannot even speak about it because it’s like, ‘Oh, that’s a huge task.’” Hudson is undeniably excited for her chance at this dream role. It’s a difficult undertaking, considering that Franklin reigned as a songstress during much of her lifetime. An 18-time Grammy winner, Aretha Franklin inspired the music of many artists throughout her long career. Undoubtedly, the legacy of her music will continue to do so. As for Hudson, she is making her own mark, busy as ever in both music and acting roles. Hudson’s other projects include a movie version of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Cats, as well as serve as a judge on the upcoming season of The Voice.

Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker in NY Subway Footage

by

Recently, the first look at Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker began circulating the internet. But now we can see him in the full get-up as filming is underway in NYC. A video of Phoenix at a subway station in Manhattan shows the Joker getting off the train with a mask on as onlookers flee. TMZ was one of the first sites to report on the video. The mask is creepy enough, but his makeup manages to make his Joker look pretty spot on. 

Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker: Phoenix on Wanting the Role

According to Forbes, Joaquin Phoenix previously stated in an interview with comicbook.com.

Three or four years ago, I called my agent and said ‘Why don’t they want to take one of these characters and just make a lower budget film about it, a movie but a character study, and why not take one of the villains? And I thought, ‘You can’t do the Joker, because, you know, it’s just you can’t do that character, it’s just been done.’ So I was trying to think of other characters, and he said ‘I’ll set up a general meeting with Warner Bros.’ And I said ‘I’m not gonna go, I can’t go to a general meeting.’ So I completely forgot about it, and so then I heard about this idea, I was like, ‘Oh that’s so exciting, that’s the kind of experience I wanted to have, with a movie based on a comic character.’ I felt like you could get something on screen.

Is What We See the Joker’s Final Look for the Screen?

The footage released is hopefully close to what Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker will be like. The film seems to be going for a more classic look, similar to Cesar Romero’s Joker in the 1966 Batman TV series, but way more unsettling. Appearance for the role is nearly as important as the portrayal of the iconic character. Film-goers will hope that Phoenix does the role justice, as most were blown away by the late Heath Ledger’s Joker performance. You can take a look for yourself in the subway video below.

Phoenix Doesn’t Want to Classify the Movie into a Genre

The Joker is a comic book character and part of the DC comics universe of superheroes and villains. The upcoming flick, set to come out in October of 2019, is a separate spin-off with the Joker as the main focal point. Phoenix, however, told comicbook.com that he “wouldn’t quite classify this as like any genre. I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie or a … it feels unique.”

Whether he believes it fits into a genre or not, Phoenix goes on to say that the characters in the superhero realm are “incredible characters that are dealing with real life struggles. And sometimes that is uncovered and exposed, and sometimes it isn’t, and so I always felt, like, there were characters in comics that were really interesting and deserve the opportunity to be kind of studied.”

Lana Del Rey Announces New Album Coming in 2019

by

Lana Del Rey just released a new song this last week. The tune, called “Mariners Apartment Complex,” has Lana’s signature moody sound. If you haven’t heard it yet, you can give it a listen below. A new single is exciting, but it isn’t nearly as exciting as the prospect of another full-length Lana Del Rey album. After “Mariners Apartment Complex” was released, Lana announced the new album, which is set to drop in 2019. Lana will release another single from the upcoming album in the next couple days, so stay tuned for that as well. This is Lana’s sixth album, and the first release since her 2017 album Lust for Life.

Lana’s Album Will Drop After She Releases a Book of Poetry

Who knew that Lana was a poet, too? Apparently, even she didn’t know. The singer told DJ Annie Mac, “I was having a little bit of writers’ block with the music last Fall and so just sat down to write some words without music and I realised there was just a couple of things I wanted to say through some poems, which is funny.” Whether Del Rey chooses to self-publish or seek a publisher, we will probably be seeing them on the internet eventually. 

Lana Del Rey Announces New Album Coming in 2019: What Do We Know So Far?

There is no official title or album artwork yet, but we do know who is producing the album. Jack Antonoff—who has worked with the likes of Lorde, Taylor Swift, and St. Vincent—has been confirmed as the producer.

The sound will be unmistakably Lana, but according to  what the singer told R1, the album will have “some surf elements to some of the songs” and “a little Red Hot Chili Peppers influence.”

As of yet, there are no set tour dates or scheduled performances for the 2019 release.

What the Single, “Mariners Apartment Complex” Tells Us About the New Album

So far, we know that Lana is working with Jack Antonoff, there will be a blend of influences in the sound and it will drop sometime in the early months of 2019. If we take a look at the first released single, “Mariners Apartment Complex,” the lyrics give a hint as to the vulnerable strength that may be behind the rest of the album. If the song is any indicator, we can only hope to find more haunting tracks that express not only an inner-strength and vulnerability but some dramatic self-realization. These are the things that most of us find behind Lana’s honesty: relatable sadness, experiences and raw emotion.

Henry Cavill’s Response to Superman News on Instagram

by

In case you weren’t already confused about the recent news concerning the future of Superman, then Henry Cavill took the opportunity to make it all a little bit worse. On Wednesday, we were told that Henry Cavill is most likely hanging up the Superman cape forever. But then Cavill’s manager stepped in to make sure we knew that Cavill may not be exiting the role and the DCEU. Warner Bros. followed by stating officially that there have been no concrete decisions. The main point? There are no Superman projects in the works. The only confirmed project in the Superman universe will be a Supergirl film. While it does seem pretty likely that Cavill won’t be appearing as Superman again, who knows. Maybe WB will agree for another sequel in the near future, maybe not.

Henry Cavill’s Response to Superman News

The actor, who starred in three films as Clark Kent, will appear next in a Netflix series titled The Witcher. As if fans weren’t feeling confused enough, Cavill posted an Instagram video that raised even more eyebrows. In the video, Cavill wears a “Krypton Lifting Team” tee shirt and plays with a Superman action figure. Whatever his intentions, the bizarre post gives a mixed message.
