James Gunn announces Guardians of the Galaxy double feature

“Four hours of Guardians bliss” are coming to theaters, according to James Gunn. The writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy and its upcoming sequel announced on Saturday that a double feature of his Marvel space operas are coming to select theaters in RealD 3D on Thursday, May 4.

This isn’t the first time theaters screened back-to-back Marvel movies — in fact, it’s actually one of the shorter marathons. In 2012, AMC Theaters screened the entire MCU Phase 1 lineup, beginning with the first Iron Man, as a lead-in to the premiere of The Avengers. A more exhaustive blitz took place in 2015 for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and last year, Marvel brought a Captain America-specific marathon to theaters ahead of Captain America: Civil War. Comparably, four hours seems like a breeze.

According to Gunn, those who show up for the Guardians double feature will receive “an exclusive poster and souvenir collectible button set.” Tickets for the extravaganza are on sale now. Check out the announcement and a new poster below.

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 sees the return of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), Yondu (Michael Rooker), and Nebula (Karen Gillan) on a new space adventure. Kurt Russell (Ego the Living Planet), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), and Pom Klementieff (Mantis) will appear as new characters in Marvel’s galaxy far, far away.

The film opens in theaters everywhere May 5.

Last year, we found out that a television series based on Big Hero 6 the movie would be coming to Disney XD, along with an amazing voice cast. Today, it was announced that the series has already been ordered for an early second season! That means tons of adventures are in store for our Big Hero 6 faves, and we couldn’t be happier about it. The story of the series picks up immediately following the events of the feature film, including Hiro, Baymax, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go, and Fred, along with many other returning characters. Hiro will face daunting academic challenges in his day-to-day life, and high-tech adventures with the Big Hero 6 team as they protect San Fransoyko. As an extra gift to us all, the voice cast of the upcoming series made a video to show us all how the iconic Baymax fist bump is done. Get your “Bah-a-la-la-la” ready and watch this gem:

The amazing Stan Lee introduces the video by saying “The cast of Big Hero 6 will now show you how to do a fist bump!” If Stan Lee said it, you know it’s going to be good. We then get to see the cast try to recreate the iconic moment between Hiro and Baymax. Brooks Wheelan, who voices Fred, begins with an impressive reenactment. Next, Maya Rudolph, who voices Aunt Cass says, “I can’t remember how to do it.” Lucky for her, Scott Adsit (Baymax), Ryan Potter (Hiro), Khary Payton (Wasabi), Genesis Rodriguez (Honey Lemon), and Jamie Chung (Go Go) all pitch in to provide the fist bump and “Bah-a-la-la-la!” Then, Stan Lee fist bumps Scott Adsit, who flies off screen in an epic conclusion. Amazing. If you need a refresher on the original Baymax and Hiro moment, here it is:

So good! Baymax saying”Bah-a-la-la-la” gives us life! And we’re absolutely obsessed with the voice cast of the upcoming Big Hero 6 series. We can’t wait to see what they do next!

Y así es el show del Cirque Du Soleil dedicado a Soda Stereo (+ Videos)

gustavo cerati

Este jueves se estrenó en Buenos Aires el esperado y nostálgico espectáculo.

El Cirque du Soleil estrenó este jueves en el Luna Park de Buenos Aires, el esperado espectáculo 'Séptimo Día - No descansaré', un merecido homenaje a una de las bandas más representativas del rock en español, Soda Stereo. Un show de 90 minutos en el que los clásicos de la banda argentina en efectismo y acrobacia.

Es la primera vez que la compañía circense canadiense se inspira en una banda de Latinoamérica para producir un show. Antes lo había hecho, pero con The Beatles, en ‘Love‘(2006); con un tributo a Elvis Presley, en ‘Viva Elvis‘ (2010); y con un homenaje a Michael Jackson, en la obra ‘The Immortal World Tour‘ (2011).

Charly Alberti y Zeta Bosio fueron espectadores centrales de su propio legado en una obra que dura 90 minutos, en la que se mezclan lo teatral, lo circense, junto con los hits del trío, que atraviesan todo el espectáculo."Esto tiene algo diferente, porque no es una obra circense exactamente, ni es un show, es una mezcla de ambas cosas, donde el circo, más que homenajea, celebra", afirmó Charly Alberti, exbaterista de la banda.

En el debut también estuvieron la madre de Gustavo Cerati, Lilian Clark; su hijo Benito y su ex esposa Cecilia Amenábar.

Lali Espósito, Valeria Mazza, Jorge Lanata, entre otros famosos, también asistieron al estreno del espectáculo. Entre las figuras peruanas se confirmó la presencia de Christian Meier, Antonio Jáuregui, Deyvis Orosco, Natalie Vértiz y Alondra García Miró.

Varias imágenes y videos del show ya circulan en las redes sociales. Recientemente, se anunció el lanzamiento del documental #SodaCirque que se estrenará esta semana a través de la cadena HBO.

'The Americans' Season 5: TV Review

The best drama on television continues to ratchet up the tension while pushing purposefully toward the end (and no spoilers here).

One of the great difficulties writing about long-running series with complicated and hard-earned twists and turns is that you can't go anywhere near them. Nobody likes a spoiler — and far too many people these days think even the smallest detail revealed is a spoiler. The longer a series is on the air — especially one, like FX's The Americans, that is arguably the best drama on television — the harder it is for a critic to say anything new of substance about it.
And yet, there's an obligation to write about the best drama on television, because, well, people will want to read it.
You see where we are here.
There won't be anything that's an actual spoiler revealed in this review. That would normally only leave the door open to something along the lines of, "Wow, the start of the fifth season is really great — nothing I can tell you about, but, wow, some amazing things happen."
Which is true, actually. The Americans, through the three episodes of season 5 that FX made available to critics, continues along the same ground it always has: It's extremely well-constructed, with slow-burning storylines that are paying off in superb dramatic depth; it boasts consistently top-tier acting from stars Keri Russell, Mathew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, Holly Taylor and more; it has artfully crafted visuals that emphasize the mundane work of everyday spies while simultaneously revealing things about the characters. It's all here, plus a very intriguing twist that pops up immediately in the first episode, which I won't mention again but hope to elaborate on much later when dissecting the growth of this fifth season.
There are elements to talk about that don't spoil the experience and are germane to the ongoing value of The Americans, but first this quick note about how there's maybe a better way to do this in the future: Either waiting until four or five episodes have aired, which allows a more detailed discussion about merit for viewers who won't feel like spoilers are being revealed; or reviewing these later-stage series only if something has changed for the worse (a terrible plot decision; a clearly degraded sense of visuals; bad acting).
Thankfully, none of the latter applies here, but since I'm "reviewing" the show before season five kicks off, a couple of things stand out as worth mentioning (that are not spoilers, so relax).
Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields have said that the tensions and stakes will continue to rise as they did in the superb fourth season, and that's to be expected. A long-running spy story of this quality truly pays off after the seeds of the long game are planted. One of the exceptional achievements of The Americans is that Weisberg and Fields have made the series compelling even though we know that this Cold War-era, '80s spy story about Russian agents posing as Americans has a real-life ending that the audience already knows: The "evil empire" that Ronald Reagan battled eventually declined, became less of a nuclear worry to antsy Americans and, until relatively recently (more on that coming), the two sides became friendly allies.
None of that diminishes the anxiety of watching Elizabeth (Russell) and Philip (Rhys) complete missions for their country while trying to raise a daughter in Paige (Taylor), whom they outed themselves to and are, essentially, trying to protect and convert at the same time. All the while this frays their already extremely complicated marriage. These have long been the elements Weisberg and Fields have played with in great detail, making The Americans one of the truly exceptional TV dramas of all time.
But while viewers have no idea of the fate that lies ahead for the Jennings family, they do know that the American side "wins." And the first four seasons have shown the FBI, particularly neighbor and field agent Stan (Emmerich), getting close. The vice is tightening.
Season four ended with all kinds of hell: William (the wonderful Dylan Baker) swallowing the biological sample, the FBI narrowly missing Philip, and handler Gabriel (Frank Langella) suggesting the family consider closing shop and moving to Russia. It's not a spoiler, given there are 13 episodes this season and 10 in the sixth and final season in 2018, to admit that they don't flee. That wouldn't be very dramatic.
But season five isn't in a holding pattern — though people unfamiliar with the show or simply not paying attention to the pace from the start might suggest so. The Americans truly is a slow-burn series, because the spying (and whatever action comes from it) has always been secondary to the character development (and the Jennings marriage and family). So it looks like we're going to get more of the Paige conundrum, and we should. It's an intriguing conceit, a teenage girl finding out her parents are actually Russian spies, and she's already spilled those beans to her pastor (embracing religion as she did as a kind of rebellion against her godless parents); now she's slowly falling for the son of the FBI agent across the street. What could possibly go wrong?
That's a storyline that has a lot more fruit to bear. And this season, The Americans is shifting one of its storylines to Russia as the series follows Oleg (Costa Ronin), who departed Washington and the confines of the Russian Rezidentura and went back home. Following Oleg in Russia adds a new angle, providing a deeper understanding of life in Moscow and a more nuanced take on the impact the spy game has on either homeland.
Also heading (slowly) West: Mischa, Philip's son. Who knows when he arrives but, yeah, that will complicate a lot of things.
Of course you can't have a show about Russia and America and not think about the Trump administration and the current controversy it now finds itself in (with ever increasing complications), despite the fact that The Americans itself is focused on 1984. While it certainly is fodder for hot takes and think pieces, you should resist the impulse to examine it too closely. Weisberg and Fields have steadfastly written the show in the spirit and mood of the moment it takes place in — not with their eyes on the future to come. It's what makes The Americans real; they are not manipulating character actions based on the known outcome. They try very hard to create this fictional world, populate it with characters and play. That's pretty much it. To drag the Trump mess into the frame, as a viewer, is a disservice to the effort at hand and adds little to the viewing.
Instead, you should definitely pay close attention to Philip and Elizabeth, who bonded more than frayed last season. That hasn't always been the case. And the other burning issue is, as explained, Paige: her actions, plus her parents' reactions to those actions, might indicate something about this marriage and the future of the Jennings family. We've got 23 episodes to see how that goes.
And, oh yeah, the three episodes sent to critics were great.

‘Unsolved’: Marcc Rose And Wavyy Jonez Cast As Tupac And Biggie In USA’s Murder Mystery Pilot

Marcc Rose Wavyy Jonez Unsolved

Tupac BiggieMarcc Rose (Straight Outta Compton) and newcomer Wavyy Jonez have been tapped to play Tupac and Notorious B.I.G., respectively, in Unsolved, USA’s scripted drama pilot that follows the major police investigations into the murders of the iconic rappers.

Rose will play Tupac Shakur. A poet, actor and legendary rapper, Shakur was as brilliant as he was self-destructive. Shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996, his murder still remains unsolved today.

In his first acting role, Jonez is set to portray Christopher Wallace, AKA Biggie Smalls. Born and raised in Brooklyn, Wallace quickly went from honor student to small-time drug dealer to the face of East Coast rap. The “Mo Money Mo Problems” rapper was shot and killed in Los Angeles, just six months after Shakur. His murder also remains a mystery.

Unsolved is based on the experiences of former LAPD Detective Greg Kading, who led multiple law-enforcement task forces investigating the murders and wrote the book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations. Rose and Jonez join previously announced cast Josh Duhamel as Detective Kading, Jimmi Simpson as Detective Russell Poole and Bokeem Woodbine as Officer Daryn Dupree.

From Universal Cable Productions (UCP), Unsolved will be directed by Emmy winner Anthony Hemingway (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), who will also executive produce alongside Mark Taylor through their Hemingway | Taylor production company. Kyle Long (Suits) is writing the pilot and will also executive produce. Kading is consulting on the pilot script and will also serve as co-executive producer.

Rose made his acting debut as Tupac in Universal’s Straight Outta Compton, directed by F. Gary Gray. The 24-year-old, who hails from Brooklyn, NY, is repped by ICM Partners.

Jonez’s video audition captured the attention of casting directors and Hemingway during a nationwide open casting call to fill the role of Biggie. A rapper with a metaphorical style reminiscent of New York artists of the 1990s, Jonez has released a mixtape, R.E.D. D.O.P.E. (Real Everyday Drama Doing Over People’s Expectation). Jonez is repped by Yasmine Pearl at First Access Entertainment.

Theater cancels Beauty and the Beast due to gay character

 An Alabama theater has canceled its plan to screen Disney’s Beauty and the Beast due to the inclusion of a gay character.

The new owners of the Henagar Drive-In theater alerted its customers via Facebook that they have decided to not screen the film as previously planned after reports surfaced this week confirming the live-action remake’s version of LeFou (Josh Gad) is gay.

“When companies continually force their views on us we need to take a stand,” read the post. “If we can not take our 11-year-old granddaughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it. If I can’t sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it. I know there will be some that do not agree with this decision. That’s fine … We will continue to show family oriented films so you can feel free to come watch wholesome movies without worrying about sex, nudity, homosexuality and foul language.”

In Beauty and the Beast (read EW’s review here), LeFou is the sidekick of vain villain Gaston (Luke Evans). He flirts with Gaston in several scenes and is later shown dancing with another male character during the film’s finale.

“Bill Condon did an amazing job of giving us an opportunity to create a version of LeFou that isn’t like the original, that expands on what the original did, but that makes him more human and that makes him a wonderfully complex character to some extent,” Gad said at the film’s premiere. Of the finale, Gad called the dance scene “subtle but incredibly effective.”

Previously director Bill Condon told Attitude Magazine that Beauty and the Beast would feature an “exclusively gay moment” with LeFou, who is being cited as the first gay character in a Disney film.

“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” Condon said. “He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it.”

Disney did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
