Pizza Hut Partners With Fullscreen Creators To Develop New Menu Items

21 November 2014 9:32 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Pizza Hut wants to bring pizzas created by online media stars right to your door. The food company teamed up with three of Fullscreen’s biggest creators (Jack & Jack, Andrea Russett, and Rooster Teeth) to create all-new signature pizzas. The deal is part of Pizza Hut’s initiative to revamp its menu and introduce new ingredients. Surprisingly, none of the Fullscreen creators selected by Pizza Hut are food vloggers. But that didn’t stop any of them from creating some delectable-looking pizzas. Jack Johnson and Jack Gilinsky (together known as Jack & Jack) were the first digital celebrities to make a video about their pizza-making experience. After taste-testing several of Pizza Hut’s newest dishes, the duo (who boast over 4.7 million collective Vine followers) sat down to develop their very own creations. What resulted was the Jack J Pizza with Salami and the Jack G Pizza with Meatballs

Movie Review: Million Dollar Arm

16 May 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The film Million Dollar Arm is a family-friendly drama that is based on the real-life story of the first Indian athletes to become involved with any major American sports franchise. The film was directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Tom McCarthy. Neither gentleman has a huge list of credits to their respective professions but what they do have is largely decent quality and have latched onto a real sports underdog story here that is produced by Disney.

The story involves a down and out sports agent, J. B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), who gets the desperate yet brilliant idea to go to India and scout for pitching prospects. The plan is to develop the winners of a pitching contest/reality show, called Million Dollar Arm, and sign them for a Major League Baseball deal. Jb and his junior partner Ash (Aasif Mandvi) flesh out their plan by securing the financing »

'Gentleman's Guide', Neil Patrick Harris' 'Hedwig' lead nominations for the 2014 Tony Awards

29 April 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Fully realizing its underdog appeal, the cheeky musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder slayed the competition this morning with a whopping 10 Tony nominations, including nods for both of its tireless leading men, Jefferson Mays and Bryce Pinkham. Neil Patrick Harris’ return to Broadway after a decade yielded him his first-ever Tony nomination for the celebrated revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which netted an impressive eight nods. (Had it been eligible as a new musical, Hedwig probably would have easily tied Guide, as score and book would have been slam dunks). Trailing these shows with seven »

Tribeca Review: 'Champs' Spotlights Career Trajectory Commonalities Of 3 Champion Boxers

21 April 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Champs is as much about boxing as it is about the triumph, and failure, of the so-called American Dream. The Mike Tyson-produced documentary from first-time director Bert Marcus explores our very unique brand of patriotic idealism through the prism of a sport that gave us greats like Jack Johnson and Muhammad Ali, a sport that can oftentimes be as awe-inspiring as it is brutal.  Rather than an overview of the entire history of boxing, Champs hones in on the stories of three specific champion fighters - Tyson, Evander Holyfield, and Bernard Hopkins. Chronicling the incredibly different trajectories of their careers, the documentary highlights the common threads that they and many »

Cameron Crowe’s ‘Untitled’ Movie Starring Bradley Cooper & Emma Stone Sets Release Date & New Image!

17 February 2014 6:35 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cameron Crowe is an absolute favourite of mine but he still doesn’t have a title for his new film starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, although, maybe it’ll just become Untitled for some clever marketing reason? No? We don’t know either.

Anyway, the Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire director has also plucked the talents of John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Rachel McAdams, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin, Michael Chernus and Ivana Milicevic for his Hawaii-based narrative, and Bill Murray was also previously rumoured. All we know so far is that Cooper plays a contractor named Brian Gilcrest who lives on the island and ends up working with Emma Stone – an Air Force pilot of some sorts and maybe called Ng – to stop a weapons satellite. We also know that they might well have a bit of a past and a connection to Jack Johnson and the Dharma Initiative. Those »
