Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words

25 June 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words takes its title from a song found on the composer’s 1972 fusion album The Grand Wazoo, and there may be no better preparation for the Frank Zappa revealed in director Thorston Schutte’s extraordinary documentary than this command to consume, and then presumably digest and defecate out, the sort of journalistic queries Zappa routinely endured, with patience, smarts and inescapable sarcasm, throughout his career. “Being interviewed is one of the most abnormal things that you can do to somebody,” Zappa explains during a TV interview to a reporter whose expression, an uneasy mixture of intimidation and confusion, remains constant throughout their encounter.

The composer’s testy relationship with the media is one of the threads that unites Schutte’s somewhat unusual approach—there are none of the usual associates, scholars and friends on hand to tell you secondhand (at best) what a genius Zappa was, »

Aside from movie trailers, the Super Bowl is always fun for some unique and star studded commercials. Everyone from Liam Neeson to Ryan Reynolds showed up in those this year, but Coca Cola and Marvel won the day with their Captain America: Civil War partnership. Featuring Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, the pint-sized superhero makes the

Ant-Man and The Hulk Finally Team Up in Coca Cola's Unforgettable Super Bowl 2016 Ad

7 February 2016 6:08 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Even superheroes crave a little Coca Cola every now and then!  In this case, it's a can of Coke Mini—the latest iteration of the bubbly, brown beverage that scored airtime during a Super Bowl 50 commercial break.  The ad initially pins Marvel's Ant-Man and The Hulk against each other, as the smaller of the two heroes simply assumes he can swipe Dr. Bruce Banner's only remaining can from his lab.  "Hey Bruce, you don't mind if I just take this last Coke, do ya? Thanks, bye!" Ant-Man exclaims as he leaps from the high-rise building with Mini Coke in tow.  Well of course he can't, as The Hulk embarks on an epic chase to track down »

The new Coca-Cola advert: they don’t just want your money, they want your heart

6 February 2016 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With its stereotypes about cool kids, nerds and brotherly bonds, Coca Cola are scraping the barrel with well-worn cliches

In life, you are either the goofy kid playing PlayStation or the tall boy going out to meet his friends; in life, you are either a nerd in a cap or some sort of lithe male supermodel constantly carrying a backpack around. And so to the new Coca-Cola spot, which pits these two eternal warring tribes – the tiny dweeblet and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s actor/model son – against each other in a battle to the bitter finish. Who will emerge victorious from this final blood spar? Annoyingly: the concept of love trumps everything. And so, our tiny hero is playing PlayStation when his older brother flips his cap down over his face. Some headphones are put on a high shelf when they didn’t need to be. Simple brotherly goofing.

New Look At Wonder Woman And The Trinity In Batman V Superman Promotional Materials

4 February 2016 5:19 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Marvel are partnering with Coca Cola for Captain America: Civil War, but Warner Bros. are taking Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice to Dr Pepper. Characters from the movie will be featured on all of their cans, which will include codes that take fans to tie-in comic books online that are set before the events of the highly anticipated release.

Featuring mostly pretty familiar shots of the main cast members, the one which really stands out in the gallery above is the latest shot of Wonder Woman. While she’s been heavily featured in the trailers, we haven’t seen all that many photos of the Amazonian warrior by herself, but she does look downright awesome here.

The pressure is really on Gal Gadot to deliver in the role, especially as she’ll star in her own solo Wonder Woman movie following the character’s big »

Avicii And Conrad Sewell Hit A New Low With “Taste The Feeling”

20 January 2016 12:47 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when you thought Avicii couldn’t get any Avicii-er, the Swedish superstar DJ/producer has managed to discard any semblance of street cred he might still have had. As part of an ad campaign with Coca Cola, he teamed up with vocalist Conrad Sewell on “Taste The Feeling,” which has to be the most repulsively generic piece of music on which either artist will ever put their name.

Honestly, though, “Taste The Feeling?” Really? Upon the release of his sophomore album, Stories, it was already apparent that Avicii’s “creative process”  had devolved into little more than an attempt to appeal to as many pop culture demographics as possible, but the track is nothing more than an entirely soulless commercial jingle.

In all seriousness, I can’t help but wonder if Coca Cola simply paid for the rights to use his name on a track that simply originated in a board meeting. »

Producer Adam Stone Named President of Entertainment at Phenomenon

20 January 2016 10:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Adam Stone has left Roy Lee’s Vertigo Entertainment to become president of entertainment at Phenomenon, a strategic marketing and branding agency that is branching out to develop television shows and films.

Stone is leaving the production company responsible for “The Lego Movie” and its impending sequels to a startup connected to Phenomenon, the marketing agency led by Krishnan Menon that has collaborated with companies like Starwood, Crate & Barrel, Vitaminwater, Coca Cola and the Los Angeles Times.

Phenomenon plans to use its marketing expertise and consumer research prowess to find appealing stories for theatrical and television release. The Los Angeles-based firm said it relies on a proprietary “digital research platform” that gives it access to millions of consumers to measure their “attitudes, wants and needs.”

The company plans to turn those into stories ready for production. Warner Bros. will get a first look at Phenomenon’s television and film offerings. »
