"Most people are afraid to be as honest as she lived," says Lisa Simone Kelly, daughter of jazz legend Nina Simone.

"My mother was Nina Simone 24/7," Kelly clarifies. "And that's where it became a problem." Simone's brilliance and self-destructive tendencies are on display in the spot, which showcases the singer's extraordinary stage presence and inimitable voice. After a world premiere at Sundance and a screening at the Berlinale, "What Happened, Miss Simone?" will become available on Netflix on June 26. (The documentary is a completely different endeavor from "Nina," director Cynthia Mort's biopic starring Zoe Saldana.) In an interview with Women and Hollywood, Garbus said of her...

Before we watch Zoe Saldana controversially take on the High Priestess of Soul in an upcoming biopic, we'll get a documentary on the legendary Nina Simone. Directed by Liz Garbus, What Happened, Miss Simone? (which debuted at Sundance) promises an unfiltered look at the life and times of Simone — both the good and the bad — using rare interviews, her songs, and archival footage approved by Simone's daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, who served as an executive producer. In the doc's first trailer, we hear Kelly narrate Simone's story, warning that her mother "was Nina Simone 24/7 ... and that's where it became a problem." We've got goose bumps.

Could the Avatar film series actually end up spanning five movies?
As of now, only three more Avatar movies have been announced, with the first set to be released in late 2017.
Horner told HeyUGuys: "He's got four sequels script-wise, and he's trying to make it into three. And I think that's where the effort is going right now. How do you keep it from expanding into a fifth movie?"
Cameron plans to film the series of three Avatar sequels back-to-back, releasing them in consecutive years.
Avatar was released in 2009, and took a record-breaking $2.8bn at the box office.

According to fansite TrekMovie.com, which has a solid track record when it comes to Star Trek, the upcoming third movie in Paramount Pictures’ relaunched series is going by the title of Star Trek Beyond.
According to the site, Star Trek Beyond has been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), although the report does go on to state that it could be a decoy title, given Bad Robot’s penchant for secrecy.
Little is known about the plot for Star Trek 3, although Simon Pegg – who is co-writing the script, as well as reprising the role of Soctty – has previously stated that it will have “the spirit of the TV show”, and an increased emphasis on exploration.
Meanwhile, speaking to MTV, Pegg has also confirmed that Idris Elba is set for a “kick-ass” role, stating that: “It will be [an original character]. This is the five-year mission now, we’re out there. »

It sounds like the crew of the USS Enterprise may boldly go where no man has gone before in next year's Star Trek sequel.
It looks like Star Trek 3 might have an official title. According to TrekMovie.com, the upcoming film will likely be called Star Trek Beyond. Apparently that’s the title that’s been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), but the outlet also notes that we know how J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot operate. It’s possible that this could be a decoy title to throw fans off. However, the title Star Trek Beyond does make sense considering co-writer Simon Pegg has teased that the new film is about frontierism and also told Den of Geek the following: “So for me it's now about the spirit of adventure and exploration and also, in modern terms, just how would that be for people, to be away for that amount of time and that kind of stuff.” Director Justin Lin is expected to start filming Star Trek 3 (or »

It’s been two years since the last Star Trek outing arrived in cinemas, and pre-production is now in full swing on the threequel. Star Trek 3 is slated to begin principal photography this June and has a sterling batch of creatives steering this one to the big screen. With J.J. Abrams busy tweaking the details on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fast & Furious veteran Justin Lin is directing from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. And now thanks to a new interview with MTV (via Collider), Pegg has opened up on precisely what’s in store for the sequel.
Addressing the topic of Idris Elba’s supposed appointment as the film’s villain, Pegg affirmed that the actor is indeed set to appear. But it won’t be anyone you’re likely to have heard of:
“It will be [an original character], yes. This is the five-year mission now, »

Jackson on working with Quentin Tarantino on "Django Unchained;" director Steve McQueen on how he works with actors in general; Zoe Saldana on being an actor and having the least amount of power in the production process; McQueen again on directing, and opening oneself »

Whoa, mama! Zoe Saldana stepped out in Los Angeles on April 14 without a drop of makeup, and the star's skin was virtually glowing (maybe double the babies means double the benefit to your skin).

For her Beverly Hills outing, Zoe appeared cute and casual, wearing a black blouse, jeans and Saint Laurent monogrammed crossbody satchel. The mom-of-two has been keeping busy with cardio workouts, and even took to Facebook to share her post-twins progress with fans: "I made it!
