At first the trailer for The Intern seems like a continuation of The Devil Wears Prada, but it’s not. Anne Hathaway plays Jules Ostin, who founded and runs an online fashion website. Robert De Niro plays a 70-year-old widower, Ben Whittaker, who becomes a senior intern at the fashion site. Hilarious, right? While it looks like it will have its funny moments, this is totally a feel good movie. It also stars Adam Devine, Nat Wolff and Anders Holm. In theaters September 25, 2015.
Is there a character that Meryl Streep can’t play convincingly? Doesn’t look like it. She stars in Ricki and the Flash where she plays a rockstar who gave up everything to follow her dream. She returns home to try to make things right with her family–all of her children now being adults–and things are not going so well.
Her real life daugher, Mamie Gummer, plays her on-screen daughter in this comedy written by Diablo Cody. Director, Jonathan Demme said Streep studied guitar for months before six weeks of band rehearsal ahead of shooting. The playing, the singing and the stage presence was all her doing. This is Meryl Streep, I wouldn’t expect anything less. The film also stars Kevin Kline and Rick Springfield. In theaters August 7, 2015. Can’t wait!

This time in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation the crew is after the Syndicate, an international rogue organization looking to destroy IMF for good. Starring: Cruise, Renner, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin. You can watch this new mission in action in theaters July 31, 2015.

You probably saw the headlines all over social media about “Batkid” back in 2013. Five-year-old cancer patient, Miles Scott wanted to be a superhero for his wish from the Make A Wish Foundation and San Francisco was turned into Gotham City. What you may not have known is that they filmed the making of the extravaganza for a documentary. Now what made this story famous was how thousands of people came together to contribute to this special day. However, there is some controversy since many feel that Batkid was merely being expoitated and that thousands of other children who are ill have never gotten this kind of treatment.
Batkid Begins focuses on why this particular story became such a phenomenon. The trailer shows how strangers can make a difference in one child’s life and maybe after watching this others will be inspired to help the thousands of other sick children in the world who need an uplifting moment in their life.
If that doesn’t convince you, Batkid Begins was made using funds raised through indie-go-go and as stated on the funding page, “The proceeds of the film will go to the Batkid Fund, which will support San Francisco charities.”
MS MR are set to release their sophomore album, How Does it Feel, on July 17th. They recently released the music video for the first single off the album, “Painted” and it rocks.
The video is a collaboration between the band and director Tabitha Denholm (Florence and the Machine, Haim, Jessie J). The idea for the video was inspired by famed director, Stanley Kubrick as well as the 1970s documentary The Secret Life of Plants. Love the song and the groovy, psychedelic video. For something a little smoother, their second single, “Wrong Victory” takes it down a notch. Check it out here.
