Last month, HBO cancelled Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl after already having renewed it for a second season. But if you’re mourning the loss of your window into the 1970s New York music scene, fear not — Baz Luhrmann‘s The Get Down is arriving in just a few weeks. Though to be fair, this 1970s New York-set music drama looks pretty damn different from that other 1970s New York-set music drama.
The Get Down unfolds at the dawn of punk, hip-hop, and disco, following the “young, scrappy, and hungry” types at the forefront of those movements. The cast is loaded with intriguing up-and-comers like Justice Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Shameik Moore, and Skylan Brooks, most of whom are trying to make it in music one way or another. Watch the first The Get Down trailer after the jump, but be warned it may make you really frustrated that you can’t watch the show right freakin’ now. Read More »
Tom Hardy is a man of many talents. Last year, he convincingly played twins, killed it as Max Rockatansky, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in The Revenant. We’re not seeing as much of Hardy this year, but we still have some upcoming projects we’re looking forward to seeing him in. He stars in Steven Knight‘s (Locke) FX series Taboo and has a supporting role in the musical London Road.

How about a bit of wistful longing to go with your coffee this morning? Summit Entertainment has just unveiled the dreamy first trailer for La La Land, the new musical romance by Whiplash director Damien Chazelle. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (so great together in Crazy, Stupid, Love.; a shame that chemistry was squandered in Gangster Squad) play a pair of aspiring artists who have the gorgeous and terrible luck of falling for each other in a city that’s known for crushing spirits — that is, Los Angeles. Check it out below. Read More »
Though there are contemporary audiences who enjoyed Tim Burton’s odd take on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, for many the definitive big screen version of the story came in 1971 in the form of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. With an unforgettable performance from Gene Wilder as the titular chocolatier, the musical take on the book is a true classic. Now you can show your love for the film with some new artwork from the artist Shag available at Dark Hall Mansion.

If you’re a big fan of movies about animated animals doing stuff, 2016 must be a banner year for you. We’ve already seen Kung Fu Panda 3, Zootopia, Angry Birds, and Finding Dory, and The Secret Life of Pets and Ice Age: Collision Course still on the way this summer. Then the end of the year brings Sing, Illumination Entertainment’s take on an American Idol-style show.
Garth Jennings (Son of Rambow) directs an all-star cast that includes Matthew McConaughey as a koala who launches a singing competition to save his failing theater, while Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Taron Egerton, Seth MacFarlane, and Tori Kelly give voice to the contestants. Although they’re all animals living in an all-animal world, they seem to enjoy many of the same pop hits we humans do, including Katy Perry’s “Firework,” Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” and Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” (or maybe it’s Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”), Digital Underground’s “The Humpty Dance,” and at least 80 more. Watch the supersized four-minute Sing trailer below. Read More »
Hugh Jackman has been attached to the P.T. Barnum biopic The Greatest Showman on Earth for almost seven years. Every once in a blue moon, we’d get an update saying the project, which centers on the founder of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, is alive and well. After years of development, the project is maybe more alive than ever, as another actor, Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea), may finally join Jackman in The Greatest Showman on Earth.
Below, learn more about the biopic and who Michelle Williams might play.

Troll dolls last peaked about twenty years ago, but now that the ’90s revival is in full swing, DreamWorks is making a valiant effort to bring back those tiny bright-haired creatures. Coming up from the studio this fall is Trolls, an animated adventure featuring the mellifluous voices of Justin Timberlake (who released his first new single since 2013 for it), Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, and Gwen Stefani.
Timberlake leads the cast as a grumpy troll who must join forces with an extremely chipper troll (Kendrick) to fight a greater evil. Can these total opposites learn to respect each other and work together? Will they be able to vanquish the villain with the power of love and/or joy? Will the cranky one eventually open up to reveal the song in his heart? Tough questions, if you’ve never seen a movie before.
