This High School Musical 4 Trailer May Be Fake But We're Still Shook

24 August 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Next year would technically mark the the 10-year reunion for the Wildcats class of 2008, and some people aren't entirely optimistic about what that would look like for Troy, Gabriella, Ryan, Sharpay, Chad and Taylor. In fact, one fake, fan-made trailer for High School Musical 4—which was dubbed Once a Wildcat—actually kinda bummed us out (probably because it's all too relatable).  It features various clips from movies and shows that Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley TisdaleLucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman have all worked on separately, splicing them together to create a plot line that makes the reunion look a little, well, bleak. Essentially, the story »

Simone Biles Sadly Isn't Dating Zac Efron, but Her Real Boyfriend Is Pretty Darn Cute

22 August 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

A post shared by Simone Biles (@simonebiles) on Aug 21, 2017 at 5:05pm Pdt Simone Biles is off the market! On Monday, the Olympic medalist made things Instagram-official with her new man, a fellow gymnast named Stacey Ervin. "Always smiling with you," she captioned the photo of her looking lovingly into the 23-year-old's eyes. And it seems like the feeling is mutual. Stacey couldn't help but gush about the 20-year-old after she was inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame on Sunday. Even though she had a flirty friendship with her celebrity crush, Zac Efron, this seems to be her first real relationship as she previously told Entertainment Tonight that she's never had a boyfriend before. Aww! They certainly make one adorable pair. Words cannot express how incredibly proud I am of you, all you've accomplished & how well you carry yourself. You make me feel like I am the luckiest man alive. »

John Cena And Kevin Hart Are Being Considered For A Knight Rider Reboot

21 August 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It was just yesterday that we shared David Hasselhoff’s dream to star in a Knight Rider movie in the style of Logan, an idea he pitched to Robert Rodriquez while posing for a selfie. I said there was no way in hell that movie was ever going to happen, but in doing so I made the movie gods angry. Now, it looks like a Knight Rider movie is taking shape after all, just not in the way Hasselhoff envisioned.

Screen Rant reports that the Weinstein Company is looking to reboot Knight Rider, and they’re hoping to secure John Cena and Kevin Hart to star. The film would be a comedy not unlike 21 Jump Street, with Cena playing Hasselfhoff’s classic role, Michael Knight, and Hart voicing his car, Kitt. No one has been officially cast, but Screen Rant says this is the direction the Weinstein Company is looking to go with the reboot. »

Lionsgate is still trying to get their live-action Naruto movie off the ground and they have just taken a step to try and steer the adaptation in the right direction.

What time is it? It's time to discuss "Bet on It," that's what time it is. Believe it or not, 10 years ago today, High School Musical 2 premiered on the Disney Channel.

As for Troy Bolton (Zac Efron)? He swiftly got promoted from caddy to children's golf teacher, thanks to some clever manipulation on behalf of drama queen Sharpay Evans (Ashley Tisdale).

Dumbing Down Cinema: Meme Moviemaking

16 August 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the dumbing down of cinema…

The accusation of dumbing down seems to come up a lot in recent years. It runs through everything. Society in general, culture, media, music and film. So lets focus on film. It would be wrong to suggest that rudimentary plotting (for easy spoon feeding) hasn’t been around for decades in film. It has. It’s at the other end of the spectrum. Those films which challenge and engage us more intellectually, or even just emotionally. They are becoming less common, whilst the easily ingestible are the films that seem to get bankrolled with far more frequency.

It’s not to say you can’t do a film that is inherently simple. A good blockbuster is essential in cinemas make up. We need The Avengers to keep the gate receipts bursting at the seams. They don’t ask interesting questions, but it’s not their remit. »

Even Zac Efron doesn’t get a free pass when it comes to job interviews.

The Baywatch actor, 29, and his brother Dylan are teaming up with Columbia Sportswear, and in a hilarious spot announcing the partnership, the duo are put through the ringer by the brand‘s 93-year-old chairwoman, Gert Boyle, for jobs as “gear testers.”

“So what are your qualifications?” an unimpressed Boyle asks Zac, who hands over a stack of autographed head shots. “I didn’t recognize you without your shirt on.”

“I’m not always shirtless,” says Zac. “I do wear shirts. Often. Every day, in fact. »
