"Music is my life!" Paramount has debuted a new trailer and a new featurette for the upcoming Meryl Streep movie Florence Foster Jenkins, starring Streep as the legendary Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress who dreamed of being a singer despite having a terrible voice (her story is similar to the one told in the film Marguerite). We've featured at least one teaser trailer for this previously and now we get a look at the full trailer with more footage of her horrifying crowds at Carnegie Hall. Hugh Grant also stars, and the cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, John Kavanagh, Simon Helberg, and plenty others. I'm not sure how popular this will be with younger people, but it does look amusing. And Meryl Streep is always fun. Here's the newest Us trailer for Stephen Frears' Florence Foster Jenkins, via Paramount's YouTube: And here's the follow-up Making of Featurette for Florence Foster Jenkins, »

The show’s not over ’til the flat lady sings in “Florence Foster Jenkins,” Stephen Frears’ bright, bubbly and suitably ear-bursting biopic of surely the least gifted chanteuse ever to sell out Carnegie Hall. She sings rather early on, however, leaving Frears and screenwriter Nicholas Martin with few dramatic or comedic cards to play for the pic’s remaining 90 minutes — beyond the admittedly delicious spectacle of the ever-game Meryl Streep taking a musical meat cleaver to respectable operetta. Less rich and less rounded than “Marguerite,” the recent French arthouse hit drawn from Jenkins’ story, this good-humored confection — slyly fashioned as a reproach to more discerning culture critics — will nonetheless strike a chord with auds who thrilled to Streep’s comparably high-camp impersonation of Julia Child. Seventy-two years after her passing, expect Jenkins’ name to sell out a few more theaters from beyond the grave.

Do the ratings for the Vikings TV show matter to the folks over at History? The series saw another big drop in the ratings last year --- down 28% in the demo and 44% in viewers -- but the cable channel renewed it for a supersized fourth season anyway. Will the numbers keep falling? Cancelled or renewed for a fifth season? Stay tuned.
Vikings takes place in the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore (and raid) the distant shores across the ocean. The rest of the large cast includes Katheryn Winnick, Clive Standen, Gustaf Skarsgård, Alyssa Sutherland, Linus Roache, Alexander Ludwig, Ben Robson, Moe Dunford, Lothaire Bluteau, Jasper Paakkonen, Kevin Durand, Jennie Jacques, Peter Franzen, Morgane Polanski, Amy Bailey, Dianne Doan, and John Kavanagh.

In this film, Meryl Streep plays Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress who dreamed of becoming an opera singer despite having a terrible singing voice. Hugh Grant also stars, and the cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, John Kavanagh, Simon Helberg, and plenty others. Florence Foster Jenkins is already a popular person, as her can't-really-sing story is similar to the one in the film Marguerite. This movie seems to embrace the absurd fun of the whole story, and it looks like Meryl Streep is at her finest as always. Enjoy.
