jem Movie Synergy

There’s a robot in the new Jem and the Holograms trailer, and at first I was sure why. For the most part, this new trailer is an expansion of the first, where Jerrica, a shy but talented young woman becomes an internet sensation only to find rapacious talent executives trying to separate her from her friends in order to control her. (Just like what happens to Eazy-E in Straight Outta Compton!)

Turns out the robot, a cute toy invented by Jerrica’s dad, is the movie’s updated version of the holographic computer from the original animated series. Check it out in the new Jem trailer below. Read More »

Jem and the Holograms (5)

That icon of flashy ’80s fashion, Jerrica Benton a.k.a. Jem, is back in 2015 with a truly outrageous new look. As revealed in the latest Jem and the Holograms images, that involves studded leather, white fringe, lots of glitter, and… okay, on second thought, maybe Jem hasn’t really changed that much.

Aubrey Peeples plays the titular pop star, who struggles to stay true to herself as her music career blows up. Stefanie Scott, Hayley Kiyoko, and Aurora Perrineau play her bandmates and BFFs. Jon M. Chu directed and Jason Blum executive produced. See the new Jem and the Holograms pics after the jump.  Read More »

Jem and the Holograms Juliette Lewis

Jem and the Holograms snapped up its four leads just weeks after the project was announced, and now the rest of the casting is briskly falling into place. The newest addition is Juliette Lewis, who seems uniquely qualified for this music-driven feature — she’s a real-life rock star when she’s not being a Hollywood actress. Hit the jump for the latest dirt on the movie.

[Update: THR reports that ’80s icon Molly Ringwald has also joined the cast. Her role, like Lewis’s, is being kept under wraps.
