Tenacious D Movie Sequel

You might not remember it very well, but the rock duo Tenacious D, comprised of comedians Jack Black and Kyle Gass, released a movie back in 2006. Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny came at the tail end of the band’s popularity that peaked shortly after they got their own short-lived series on HBO. Perhaps that’s why the film bombed at the box office, making just under $14 million worldwide on a reported budget of $20 million. It seemed to prove that Tenacious D was more of a cult favorite than a bankable name.

Despite the film’s apparent lack of success, it would seem fans of both the movie and the band have inspired Jack Black and Kyle Gass to take a crack at a Tenacious D movie sequel, and it’s coming much sooner than you might have thought. Read More »

Beauty and the Beast Recording Sessions

Though you may not know Howard Ashman by name, you’re undoubtedly familiar with his work as one of the lyricists behind the original songs for Disney’s animated classics Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. Unfortunately, Ashman passed away far too young at 40 after a battle with AIDS. But his legacy will live through the Disney movies he left his stamp on, and a new documentary wants to make sure everyone remembers him.

Simply titled Howard, the film hails from Beauty and the Beast producer Don Hahn and explores the life and career of the lyricist and playwright. A new clip has debuted to show how he worked behind the scenes during recording sessions at Disney during production on Beauty and the Beast. That means we get to see rare behind the scenes footage of Jerry Orbach and Angela Lansbury singing the tune “Be Our Guest” as Lumiere and Mrs. Potts respectively. Read More »
