The Green girls are back together once again.

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are set to reunite after appearing together as sisters in Friends to star in a TV series about the world of morning shows. It’ll be a return to the small screen for Aniston, who made her name and won an Emmy for her role in Friends, and another notch in Witherspoon’s new career as a prestige television actress after her Emmy-nominated turn in Big Little Lies.

a wrinkle in time trailer

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay, the director of Selma and Middle of Nowhere, has a great grasp of drama that, arguably, not a lot of directors making $100 million movies possess. Her name on Disney’s adaptation of Madeline L’Engle‘s 1962 novel “A Wrinkle in Time” has us excited. If one director could make Meg’s journey through the universe have both emotion and spectacle, it’s DuVernay.

Below, watch the A Wrinkle in Time trailer.

Selma and 13th director Ava DuVernay is making history as the first black woman to make a $100 million movie with Disney’s live-action adaptation of Madeline L’Engle‘s 1962 novel A Wrinkle in Time. Now the Mouse House has unveiled some dazzling first-look images from the movie, and from these photos alone, it’s clear the director put every penny of that budget to good use.

Home Again trailer

Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon has another comedy coming up. The last two comedies she starred in, Hot Pursuit and This Means War, weren’t embraced as warmly as Sweet Home Alabama or Legally Blonde, but her next film, Home Again, which is Hallie Meyers-Shyer‘s directorial debut, looks more grounded than her last two comedies.

Home Again Trailer - Reese Witherspoon

Over the past few years, Reese Witherspoon has taken on an eclectic batch of projects like the animated musical comedy Sing, Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Inherent Vice, an Oscar-nominated turn in Wild, and an impressive recent turn in the intriguing HBO series Big Little Lies. But now she’s going back to the well with a new romantic comedy, but this one comes from the offspring of two filmmakers best known for their work in the genre.

Home Again stars Reese Witherspoon as a 40-year old woman named Alice, recently separated from her husband, who decides to start her life anew by moving back to her hometown in Los Angeles. Choosing to live a little more spontaneously, she allows three young filmmakers to crash at her place for a bit, which creates all sorts of new surprising relationships.

When HBO’s limited series Big Little Lies came to an end a little more than a week ago, I was satisfied with the conclusion. But only seven days later, I was conflicted; I appreciated the succinctness of the series’ seven episode run and thought it told a compelling and complete story, but at the same time, I couldn’t help but wish there were more episodes to dive into.

So will we ever see Big Little Lies season 2? Below, I’ll run down all of the quotes from the major players involved and try to get to the bottom of this.

Wonderful Christmastime A Cappella

Sing is the latest animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment, and it’s in theaters now. If somehow after the onslaught of musically charged TV spots that have been all over the place this holiday season you weren’t aware of that, here’s another reminder.

The voice cast of Sing (including Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane and Tori Kelly) appeared on The Tonight Show to perform an a cappella version of Paul McCartney‘s signature holiday tune “Wonderful Christmastime” with the help of Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Oh, and the former member of The Beatles popped up to help out too.

Sing Review

Note: With Sing out this weekend, we’re re-running our review from the TIFF.

Since Despicable Me, Illumination Entertainment has established itself as a go-to source for sturdy family entertainment. Their films may not reach the artistic heights of Pixar or Disney, but you can generally count on them to be perfectly pleasant and inoffensive, able to entertain the kids without annoying the parents.

Sing is Illumination’s first musical, but otherwise it’s cut from the same cloth as the company’s other films. While not especially deep, the combination of a star-studded cast and an equally star-studded music catalogue make for a fun time. It’s light and sweet and pretty as cotton candy, and it dissolves from memory just as quickly.  Read More »

‘Sing’ Trailer: Any Animal Can Be a Rock Star

Sing Trailer

This weekend brings the animated musical Trolls to theaters, which means there’s no better time for Universal and Illumination Entertainment to push their own music-infused animated comedy, Sing.

An all-new Sing trailer has arrived, and as someone who has been skeptical about how this movie would turn out, I have to say that this most recent tease of the movie actually shows off some more enticing character and story details, showing that this is much more than a showcase of some famous pop tunes. It’s a little weird that Eminem’s “Sing for the Moment,” which samples Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” is used to market a kids movies, but whatever works, I guess.
