The Prom Trailer

Even though the United States has made a lot of progress when it comes to giving members of the LGBTQ community the respect and equality they deserve, there are still plenty of places with small town mindsets who need a little push in the right direction. That’s exactly what happens in Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix movie The Prom when a teenage girl (newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman) wants to bring her girlfriend (Ariana DeBose) to the prom in her small Indiana town, but the PTA board votes against it.

Who will stand up to fight this injustice? It’s Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden), two Broadway stars reeling from a recent flop who are looking for a way to drum up some attention and give their careers a bit of a boost. With some help from their friends Angie (Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), they’re off to spark some publicity with a lot of singing and dancing. If there’s one thing that will convince Indiana folk to embrace the LGBTQ community, it’s the power of musicals, right? Read More »

The Prom Trailer

It’s been a little while since we had a full-blown musical on the big screen. Unfortunately, with studios still hesitant to send movie to theaters due to the coronavirus, that will probably be the case for a little while longer. But Netflix will help remedy that by sending Ryan Murphy‘s big adaptation of the Broadway musical The Prom to limited theaters and their streaming library on the same day in December, and the first trailer has just arrived. Prepare for a lot of glitz and glamour, folks. Read More »

Stephen Colbert and James Corden Return to Studio

Production on all movies and TV shows was shut down in early April when the coronavirus pandemic started spreading quickly across the United States. However, late night television was able to make a comeback by producing episodes remotely. Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Conan O’Brien, and Samantha Bee, hosted their shows from the comfort of their home and had guests appear through video chat. But two of them will be returning to the studio soon.

ViacomCBS has revealed that both The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden will no longer be produced from the hosts’ homes. Instead, they’ll be returning to the studio, but they won’t be returning to show business as usual. Find out more below. Read More »

james corden in cats

Remember Cats? The nightmarish film adaptation of the hit musical feels as if it hit theaters 100 years ago, but it was actually only six months. Since then, real-life horrors have superseded those of the digital fur variety, but that doesn’t mean Andrew Lloyd Webber is ready to let bygones be bygones. The composer recently recorded a commentary track for the filmed 1998 stage version of Cats, and in the process, had some less-than-charitable things to say about the recent movie adaptation – specifically James Corden‘s performance as Bustopher Jones.

Cats Movie Qualifying for Awards

UPDATE: Variety reports Cats will be screened for the Hollywood Foreign Press in time to qualify for the Golden Globes, but it remains to be seen how it will shake out for other awards voting bodies, but since the Golden Globes deadline was December 4, it shouldn’t be a problem for many of them. Our original story from November 10 follows below.

As the year comes to an end, we’re getting into the heart of awards season. This is the time of year when studios release most of the movies they hope will be vying for Oscars, Golden Globes, and plenty of other awards from various guilds, critic circles, and more. The deadlines to qualify for these awards are always known far in advance, but every now and then some films end up cutting it rather close, and this year, that film is Cats.

Cats is the big screen adaptation of the long-running Broadway musical of the same name, and a big ensemble cast that includes Francesca Hayward, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, James Corden, Rebel Wilson, Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, and more. Director Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) is bringing the story to life with a heft amount of visual effects, using what has been hilariously referred to as digital fur technology, to turn the movie’s stars into photorealistic human-cat hybrids that terrified many as soon as the first trailer arrived. It’s an interesting, albeit haunting, way to tell this story, and now it might cause the film to miss some major awards deadlines. Read More »
