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 »

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.

Chu directed and Jason Blum executive produced. See the new Jem and the Holograms pics after the jump. Read More »

The Jem and the Holograms movie came together seemingly overnight last spring, but we haven’t heard much from the candy-colored rockers since then. And we still haven’t, but at least now we’re finally getting to see them.

So does it deliver all the “glamour and glitter, fashion and fame” that we’d expect from this gang? Find out for yourself after the jump. Read More »
