Jon Chu directed the adaptation of the rock and roll cartoon, starring Aubrey Peeples, Stefanie Scott, Hayley Kiyoko, Aurora Perrineau, Juliette Lewis, Ryan Guzman and Molly Ringwald. It opens October 23. Check out the Jem the Movie trailer below. Read More »

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 »
In Dazed & Confused the sport on the minds of the main characters was football. (Well, it was drinking and sex, and then football) In the “spiritual sequel” to the 1993 film, That’s What I’m Talking About, the guys will play baseball. Richard Linklater has cast a fond eye towards America’s Pastime before, when he remade The Bad News Bears. Now, his new film will continue Dazed‘s process of filtering his own youthful memories and experiences through comedy. News on the potential That’s What I’m Talking About cast is below.
Update: The first cast member is signed, and it isn’t any of the three people originally mentioned. More info below.

The first four actors for Jon M. Chu‘s Jem and the Holograms movie have been announced, but there are more to come. The next piece of the puzzle is the actor who’ll play Rio. In the original cartoon that is being updated for the film, Rio Pacheco was the band’s road manager and tech guy, and also the love interest for Jem. The film now has its leading man, as Ryan Guzman (Step Up Revolution and All In) has been cast in the role. Read More »

The Step Up film franchise may not have the star power of a Die Hard, the icon status of an Avengers, or the record-shattering box office numbers of a Hunger Games. What it does have going for it is dependability. A new one drops every two years like clockwork, and they all follow pretty much the same formula of dancing + romance + pretty young things.
Based on the first Step Up All In trailer, the latest installment doesn’t stray too much from that template. Ryan Guzman (from Step Up Revolution) and Briana Evigan (from Step Up 2: The Streets) play the leaders of a dance crew trying to win a big Vegas competition. Along the way, they fall in love, or something. Watch the trailer after the jump.

“Enough with performance art. It’s time for protest art.”
I bet we won’t see anything funnier today than the Step Up Revolution trailer. This thing is pure gold. Every two years a new Step Up film is conceived in a mirrored studio deep in a secret bunker; it’s like a dance cocoon. Because Jon M. Chu, who directed the second and third films, moved on to make the G.I. Joe sequel, this fourth film, formerly saddled with the dullsville title Step Up 4, brings in video and dance director Scott Speer.
And since Baltimore and New York City don’t offer quite enough mini-skirts and hyper-polished cars from which to leap, the action has been moved to Miami. Perhaps I’m the only one, but when I think of Miami, I think of Cuba, and when I think of Cuba I think ¡Revolución! And that’s just what the fourth movie offers. Revolution. IN DANCE.
