At the Wednesday-night premiere of the documentary “Keep On Keepin’ On” — a story of triumph over adversity that focuses on the relationship between teacher and jazz legend Clark Terry and apprentice Justin Kauflin, a young blind pianist — first-time writer-director Alan Hicks told Variety he came up with the idea while surfing with his bud Adam Hart, the film’s d.p.
Hart, a boyish Aussie who looks like he would be equally at home at the Billabong Pipeline Masters as he would behind the camera, happens to be a drummer who studied jazz at William Paterson University in New Jersey, and took private lessons from Terry, a trumpeter whose influenced such figures as Miles Davis and Quincy Jones, a producer on the film who also appears onscreen.

When DreamWorks first unveiled its kid-friendly animation B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations, the all-new IP seemed to echo the comic tones of other genre pieces like Men In Black and Ghostbusters — particularly the latter, with Bill Murray himself on board to voice the film’s overarching big bad.
And while we’re a ways away from seeing any footage from the upcoming action comedy, we now know the style of DreamWorks’ latest project thanks to a pre-emptive marketing image courtesy of Amazon.
Going off of face value, the art style of B.O.O. is reminiscent of Nickelodeon’s Jimmy Neutron combined with a dollop of the studio’s other franchises, such as Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon.

I’ve got a soft spot for cute, pet-like animated characters so when news first broke that DreamWorks Animation was making a movie about a ghost who needs to attend ghost school in order to become a better scarer, I was hooked. However, that was a few years ago and since, the narrative and title of Boo U has changed. Now we’ve got B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations on the way and it tells the story of a pair of ghosts who go to work for the B.O.O., an organization dedicated to protecting humans from evil spirits. The scenario still sounds fun and also has Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones, Octavia Spencer, Matt Bomer and Bill Murray leading the voice cast, but the very first look at the characters just surfaced and it’s not really what I was hoping for. Hit the jump to check it out. »

Dreamworks’ B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations is over a year away for us in the UK and won’t hit the Us until June 2015, but we can now take a look at some of the lead characters thanks to, of all things, a ‘Learn To Draw’ book currently available to pre-order on Amazon. The film sees 2 ghosts joining the titular organisation, a group who go around investigating and preventing hauntings. Seth Rogen and Melissa McCarthy take on the roles of the two new ghosts hoping to stop an evil haunter by the name of Addison Drake, played by former Ghostbuster, Bill Murray. Funnily enough, Seth Rogen was once tipped to be one of the replacement Ghostbusters in Ghostbusters 3, while more recently, Murray suggested McCarthy as part of a female ensemble for the long-awaited threequel.
The film was first announced in 2009 and what is now B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations, was once known as Boo U, »

Ever wonder what Seth Rogen and Melissa McCarthy might look like if they had their own Saturday morning CGI animated TV show? The first look at B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations gives us a pretty good idea, and it seems this DreamWorks Animated adventure isn't straying too far from their everyday appearance. This cute art comes courtesy of Amazon, who bring us the first look at B.O.O. with the cover of a tie-in activity book for kids. Take a look, then read on for a synopsis of the movie that describes both the plot and what this book has to offer:
Short for "Bureau of Otherworldly Operations," B.O.O. introduces children to ghostly adventures in the digital age, as they come along for a spooky ride with the super-classified ghost-busting agency no one has ever heard of and certainly never seen. The agents of B.O.O. »

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are definitely in love; the couple showed sweet Pda while taking a stroll through NYC on Monday, walking hand in hand and stopping for a kiss as they made their way down the street.

She also celebrated earlier that week with designer Stella McCartney and pal Nicole Richie, who recently admitted to being responsible for Cameron and Benji's relationship. About setting up the actress with her brother-in-law (Nicole is married to Benji's twin, Joel) she said, "I'm happy for anyone who is happy, and I want everyone to be surrounded with love. »
That’s not to knock the clothes, which were ostensibly the focal point of the piece—after all, the play was composed for Fashion Week. Nor is it to say that there weren’t good actors on stage. The cast consisted of stars like John Cameron Mitchell, Bobby Cannavale, Catherine Keener, Rashida Jones, and Elle Fanning.
But when the curtains opened to reveal that the audience was actually sitting in the back of the Metropolitan Opera House, »

The Internet was abuzz over the weekend when dozens of nude photos of female celebrities - from Jennifer Lawrence to Victoria Justice - were posted online. While some people responded to the huge breach in privacy with humor or accusations that the women involved should have never taken private pictures in the first place, there are quite a few celebrities who are speaking out against the public's fascination and continued sharing of the photos. Lena Dunham led the charge, urging her fans not to look at the stolen pictures. Meanwhile, Emma Watson, who was commended by some of her fans for not taking "naked selfies" and thus avoiding the scandal, reflected on the lack of empathy shown to the women who were targeted. Maybe this will make you think twice about googling those pictures, even if you thought you were just innocently feeding your curiosity. Keep reading for the most interesting celebrity reactions. »
