Date night! President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama took the night off Friday to hit up the Broadway revival of A Raisin in the Sun. And the show, starring Denzel Washington, earned rave reviews from Potus and Flotus. "They loved it," actress Latanya Richardson told People after the show. "I don't want to say they're coming back, but [Michelle] is trying to come back with her mom. And she goes to a lot of shows with the girls." During intermission, the first couple made their way backstage - with Secret Service, natch - to meet and take pictures with the cast. »

MGM has just announced that it will be making a third Barbershop movie and Ice Cube is set to reprise his starring role as well as produce. It's been 10 years since the second movie was released but MGM is hoping Cube's recent success in movies such as 21 Jump Street and this year's Ride Along will have fans returning to the series.
Both movies focused on Ice Cube as Calvin Palmer, a barbershop owner in South Side Chicago. He inherited the shop from his father and wants to carry on his legacy but struggles to keep everything financially stable. Along with Cube there is a pretty impressive cast in both movies that include Cedric The Entertainer, Queen Latifah, Michael Ealy, Eve, Sean Patrick Thomas and Anthony Anderson. No word on if any other cast members are returning, however MGM for sure wants to get Cedric The Entertainer and Queen Latifah back for the third movie. »
Ice Cube is finalizing a deal to star in and produce Barbershop 3 for MGM Studios, which is clearly trying to create a stable of franchises to build off the success of The Hobbit and their James Bond movies. Along with this sequel in the works, the studio will release Hot Tub Time Machine 2 at the end of this year, Poltergeist next summer, and they are also hoping to turn Dwayne Johnson's Hercules into a franchise. MGM is also working on an animated version of The Addams Family.
Ice Cube will return as Calvin, the barbershop owner he portrayed in 2002's Barbershop and 2004's Barbershop 2: Back In Business. The studio hopes to bring back Cedric the Entertainer, who appeared in both movies as Eddie, and Queen Latifah, who played Gina in Barbershop 2: Back In Business and the 2005 spin-off Beauty Shop. MGM is currently seeking writers for the sequel. »
The messed-up machinations of bored, oversexed stepsiblings Kathryn Merteuil and Sebastian Valmont aren’t quite as shocking in 2014 as they were when Cruel Intentions was released on March 5, 1999. (Blame Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and a zillion other glitzy/scandalous imitators.)
That said, Cruel Intentions is still an enormously entertaining teen movie, even 15 years (gulp) after its initial release — thanks to an uncommonly sharp script, a killer soundtrack, and, most importantly, an impeccable cast, which featured future Oscar winners and future Sharknado stars alike. Well, one of each, but you get the picture. Whoever headed up this franchise had a »

Haim hired famed choreographer Fatima Robinson ("As Long As You Love Me," "Are You That Somebody?") to teach them some dance moves for their "If I Could Change Your Mind" video. (If you had the resources, wouldn't you?) They're slightly less awkward than Save the Last Dance's pre—Sean Patrick Thomas Julia Stiles and sightly more awkward than Save the Last Dance's post—Sean Patrick Thomas Julia Stiles (Robinson choreographed that movie, too!) but it's an endearing awkwardness. And isn't choreographed dance a rite of passage for any sister trio?The girls covered Beyoncé's "Xo" at the BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge yesterday — which happens to also be a rite of passage these days. »

The flavor of bile is unmistakable. There just isn’t anything that tastes quite like it. And you know it when it comes on: The belly rumbles, the esophagus lurches within, and you battle back the slimy liquid that threatens to spew forth from your lips.

See, there are horror sequels out there that are so horrifically bad they somehow trigger something in our internal systems... and the belly begins to rumble. We wish you no stomach troubles here, and we certainly wish the taste of bile on no man or woman. So we’re going to provide you with a list of sequels to avoid at all costs because if you check these out, you’ll be searching for the toothbrush in no time! »
