We had the opportunity to catch the first episode of the series and we have to say we are already hooked! John Singleton is the master of urban dramas and action. The way this series unfurls and how its characters intersect is going to have you glued to your screen weekly. We are super happy to see Snowflake out this summer, as you know the season rarely has anything worth watching with all the bigger shows on hiatus. Check out the trailer for the Snowflake  below and tell us what you think of it in the comments section. Will you be watching? Happy viewing!

2017 is definitely shaping up to be the year of television series’ reboots.

It looks like The CW has followed suit and has finally released a trailer for its Dynasty reboot!

As you may recall Dynasty was a hit series back in the early eighties, starring amazing actors like Diane Carroll, Joan Collins, and Linda Evans. The series ended in 1989 after nearly 220 episodes. Now, the series has been rebooted with a new cast consisting of  Grant Show as Blake CarringtonNathalie Kelley as Cristal FloresElizabeth Gillies as Fallon CarringtonJames Mackay as Steven CarringtonAlan Dale as Joseph AndersSam Adegoke as Jeff Colby,  Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane and  Rafael de La Fuente as Sam Flores

If the cast does not pique your interest then this synopsis will:

“The Rolls Royce of all primetime soaps, returns in a modernized reboot that follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington — daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington — and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal — a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class. In an age where dynasties appear everywhere — from reality TV to the polling booths — this epic drama features the one percent in all its glitz and gloss, while exposing the dark underbelly: a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases, murder.”

We are super happy to see that Dynasty has  made its way back to  television. We really hope it is a hit and our friend to the site, Rob Riley is in it! Let’s all make sure we tune in as we definitely don’t want it to go the way of the Dallas reboot! Check out the trailer below!

[VIDEO/PICS] Get Your First Look! Netflix’s Hit Series, “The Get Down,” (@TheGetDown) Returns in April!

“Netflix Forever!” Is what we  are currently yelling now  that we know The Get Down is returning to the network on April 7th! Yep that means, more of Ezekiel, Mylene, Shaolin Fantastic, The Kipling Brothers (Ra-Ra, Boo-Boo, & Dizzee), Cadillac, Fat Annie, and the rest of this amazing cast are back!  At last we get to flashback to The Bronx in the late seventies when disco music ruled the scene and hip-hop, known as “The Get Down” was a fledgling genre in the streets and alleys of the dying burough.

We manage to get our hands on a few pictures from the upcoming second part to the series; and Netflix has released a juicy trailer you must see below!

Clearly things are heating up for the kids this time around. As you recall, when we left off in the first part of the series, Mylene had just scored her first hit single, becoming an overnight sensation, meanwhile Ezekiel was living the best of both worlds as he began working for the city and he and the rest of the Fantastic Four +1 won their first major rap battle. Still, success is never an easy thing to ascertain and it looks like every single character is going to have to fight to keep their share and climb higher. Especially, Shao who seems to be fighting for his very soul!

As you recall, Disney has been remaking its animated films into live action movies;  Maleficent, Cinderella, Pete’s Dragon, The Jungle Book, and Beauty and The Beast have already been released or are soon to debut. Live actions films based on Aladdin’s Genie, and The Little Mermaid are already in the works. The Lion King, however, stands out as the “creme de la creme” of animated films, holding the title of the highest grossing animated film of all time. Its live action remake may very well prove to be the shining jewel in Disney’s new approach to these classic films.
