Justin Timberlake may stepped away from music to launch his acting career, but after five long years, he’s bringing sexy back to pop music. But that he’s also brought a bit of the movie industry back with him.
Never Let Me Go director Mark Romanek has accompanied Timberlake’s return to pop music, directing JT’s Black Mirror-inspired music video for “Filthy.” This is not their first time working together either – Romanek directed the music video for “Can’t Stop This Feeling,” Timberlake’s one-off musical stint in the midst of his acting career to produce the theme song for Trolls. Is their second collaboration another hit? Watch the music video to find out.

Greta Gerwig is on fire right now (not literally, thank heavens). The writer-actress-director’s new film Lady Bird has garnered some of the best reviews of the year, and might be a serious contender come awards season. Gerwig’s coming-of-age drama is set in the early ’00s, and as such, she wanted to fill the film with those sweet jams that you heard incessantly on the radio back in the day. To land the music license rights to certain songs, Gerwig emailed several artists, and the letters are just delightful. Read the Greta Gerwig Lady Bird letters below.

Woody Allen‘s love affair with a younger, sprightly streaming service continues with Wonder Wheel, the divisive auteur’s new film under Amazon Studios.
Returning to his Northeastern roots after flitting about in Hollywood, Rome, and Paris with his past few films, Wonder Wheel takes place in 1950s Coney Island — a familiar setting in which Allen grew up. But populating Wonder Wheel are a few unfamiliar faces to the Allen repertoire: Wonder Wheel stars Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi, and Juno Temple, all first-time collaborators with Allen.

Justin Timberlake is one of the best singers and songwriters working in the music industry today. While he started off as just another breakout pop star, his music in recent years has begun to throw back to a different era with a contemporary edge. He doesn’t just deliver the shorter three-minute, radio-friendly songs, but extended indulgences with amazing instrumentals.
Now you can see what it’s like to witness Justin Timberlake in concert with a new documentary coming to Netflix next month. While that might not sound very special to you, this particular documentary, called Justin Timberlake and The Tennessee Kids, is directed by Silence of the Lambs helmer Jonathan Demme.

At Comic-Con, DreamWorks showed 15 minutes from their upcoming animated film Trolls. Based on the toys from the ’90s, it looked like co-directors Mike Mitchell (Sky High) and Walter Dohn‘s (SpongeBob SquarePants) were aiming higher than most movies based on toys. For starters, its soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake, who recorded his first single for the film since 2013. Some of the music choices added personality to the animation, but one sequence played to Gorillaz’ “Clint Eastwood,” as unsubtle as that sounds, made Trolls look more charming than we may have expected before Comic-Con.
Below, watch the new Trolls trailer.

DreamWorks Animation brought their trippy animated musical adventure Trolls to Comic-Con this year. As we’ve seen in the trailers, it’s a feature film adaptation of the wild-haired dolls that became popular in the 1990s, and it brings a bunch of pop music hits to the big screen with a so many bright colors, weird characters and creatures, all making for a delightful acid trip that’s safe for kids.
The studio showed off about 15 minutes of footage from the movie, and I was surprised to find that this wasn’t just a showcase for a bunch of pop songs for no reason. Instead, it’s a musical where the songs really motivate the story and help develop the characters. Plus, the original songs executive produced by Justin Timberlake are bound to be favorites of kids and adults alike.
