Seems like Sony can’t catch a break from bad crap. First their system gets hacked, then all of their juicy and scandalous information gets out to the public and now…terrorist threats??

With so much going on with Sony, they can start a television series based off of it. Sony announced that they would be canceling the New York City premiere of their upcoming film “The Interview” because the system’s hackers have been threatening a 9/11-like attack on theaters who choose to show the movie. The film’s stars Seth Rogen and James Franco have even cancelled all of their appearances for the movie.

Reel News: “Whitney” Biopic Trailer Will Surely Give You Chills

Yaya-and-Arlen-600x600

Everything about the late Whitney Houston is iconic: her voice, her career, her journey, her story and on January 27th, Lifetime will put Houston’s life on-screen for all to see in Angela Basset’s directorial debut of “Whitney”.

The biopic will chronicle Houston’s life from church choir in Newark, New Jersey, to the heights of global superstardom. But as her fans have come to know all too well in the wake of her tragic death in February 2012, there was another, darker side to the singer — one that’s front and center in the exclusive trailer.

Yaya Whitney

America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya Dacosta will star as Whitney Houston while Into the Storm’s Arlen Escarpeta will play husband Bobby Brown. The trailer will surely give you chills as we can foreshadow that the biopic will be no holds barred.

I for one cannot wait, what about you?

The Sun, Love, & Tears Come Out for “Annie!”

annie

“Annie” is the tale of a kind and optimistic, little red headed orphan girl adopted by a rich man. That is the story you know right? Only part right! 2014’s “Annie” places new twists and developments for the Twenty-First Century’s first cinematic rendition of the beloved American sweetheart. This time around the story is set in present day New York City and instead of Annie being a red-headed Caucasian girl, she’s African-American with a poof of curly hair. Beyond that not too much has changed. Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) is still parent-less having been abandoned by them at restaurant as a toddler. Her parents leave a note with her promising they will return for her someday. That someday seems to be no day, as six years have passed and she has been shuffled around from one foster home to another. She winds up in the home of Ms. Hannigan (Cameron Diaz), a clear alcoholic, embittered by her failed music career. She takes her anger out on Annie and the other girls in her care, wanting to make them has hateful as she is. Annie, however is highly optimistic, fueled by her deep belief that things will look up for her and the other orphan girls someday.

Reel News: “Mad Max: Fury Road” Trailer Packs a Whallop!

Mad-Max

Post-apocalyptic themed movies and TV shows have taken over our computer and television screens and the latest movie to cash in on the craze is “Mad Max: Fury Road”. The film stars Tom Hardy as the titular Max Rockatansky – played by Mel Gibson in the previous movies – and was directed by George Miller, who helmed the previous movies (and Happy Feet) and co-wrote the movie’s script. It also stars Charlize Theron, Zoë Kravitz and Nicholas Hoult, among others.

Mad Max 2

The synopsis, which has been attached to the trailer’s YouTube page, Max has become nomadic, haunted by his past, when he encounters a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a war rig driven by Theron’s character, Imperator Furiosa. “They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe [played by Hugh Keays-Byrne], from whom something irreplaceable has been taken,” it says. “Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.”

The movie is slated for a May 2015 release.

Check out the trailer below. Are you amped up for it’s release?

“Man’s Best Friend” Becomes his Worst Enemy in “White God!”

white-god-poster

Dogs are often called “Man’s Best Friend.” For what seems like eons now they have served, protected, and worked with us for our own benefit. However, we have not always been so kind to them. Every year thousands of dogs are abandoned, abused, or killed all because they are viewed as worthless or a nuisance. There seems to be no voice for these furry fellows. Interestingly, one director has dared to wonder what would happen if the tables were turned and dogs, particularly mutts (mixed breeds), turned on their human masters?
