We were convinced we'd found a way to predict the results of this weekend's Voice battles - by putting some of the duos head to head to test their knowledge of their mentors - but Team Tom and Team Will ended in a dead heat, and Team Kylie were separated by just a measly half point. In other words, we're not talking particularly convincing results. But hey, maybe Team Ricky will give us some clearer answers? We called up Nathan Amzi and Christina Marie, so read on to find out who knows more about Ricky - and then what they had to say about tonight's head to head...
Fighting Talk - we're going to test you on your knowledge of Ricky.
Nathan: "Okay! Yeah!"
Christina: "Oh my goodness, this is going to be so bad! Okay..."

Though Warner Bros. has already moved its buzziest project, the Zack Snyder-helmed, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill-starring Batman vs. Superman, back to May of 2016, that doesn’t mean that the studio will be in any way resting on its laurels until then. Hot on the heels of scheduling The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Focus for the early months of 2015, Warner Bros. has scheduled a huge amount of highly anticipated projects. We’ll take them on in chronological order.
The horror flick formerly known as Annabelle, a spinoff from The Conjuring, has been set for October 3 of this year. It’s going to face tough competition from David Fincher’s Gone Girl, though the huge returns from the first film in the franchise are probably giving New Line the utmost confidence that the John Leonetti-directed spinoff will perform well.

The Conjuring 2 doesn't have any direct competition as of yet, but it debuts just one week after Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak.

Since Friends, Our Jen has carved out a successful movie career with a succession of comedy roles, most recently with We’Re The Millers, and it seems she won’t be bucking the trend with Mean Moms.
Aniston is currently in talks about taking on a leading role in this new project. Mean Moms is adapted from the self-help book by Rosalind Wiseman called (wait for it), Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads: Dealing With the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future). Beth McCarthy-Miller is slated to direct the feature from New Line Cinema.
And if you’re wondering about the link to Mean Girls, well, Wiseman also penned its book basis, Queen Bees and Wannabees (that’s the shortened title by the way). Mean Moms isn’t a sequel; instead it follows the story of a suburban mum who moves »

Recent attempts to recapture the lightning-in-a-bottle success of Mean Girls, from the direct-to-video sequel Mean Girls 2 to this month’s Vampire Academy, have met with varying degrees of catastrophic failure, but it’s understandable that studios want to keep trying, given the zeitgeist feel of the original. One such project gathering over at New Line actually sounds like it may have a pretty decent chance of finding success. Titled Mean Moms, it shares a few significant similarities with Mean Girls and just gained a huge star, with news that Jennifer Aniston has entered negotiations for a lead role.
The film will focus on a happily married mom who moves with her two kids from a small town to the wealthy suburbs. After moving in, she’s confronted with the vicious world of competitive parenting and finds herself surrounded by hostile soccer moms.
