Cool Videos: Your perspective on The Karate Kid is about to change

24 August 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

We all know The Karate Kid backward and forward. No, I'm not talking about that wretched Jaden Smith remake. I'm talking about the 1984 classic starring Ralph Macchio that taught us all about the value in waxing cars, painting fences and just about every last bit of housework you might be forced to get done on your weekends. Daniel-san was a hero to a lot of us growing up in the 80s, as we... Read More »

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air reboot in the works, Will Smith producing

14 August 2015 1:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Will Smith’s star-making sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air is set for a reboot, with Big Willy himself in the producer role…

Utter the words ‘In West Philadelphia, born and raised’ to any number of people brought up in the 1990s, and you won’t be able to speak to them for the next minute or so.

That’ll be because they’re reciting The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’s introductory rap theme song from memory. Some of them will even know the oft-deleted verse, the one about Will getting on a plane and drinking orange juice.

If you, like me, are one of those people, then this news story might just be overly-polite rap music to your ears – Will Smith is returning to the world of The Fresh Prince, to act as a producer for a new series.

It’s unclear at the moment whether Big Willy would star, »

Kris Jenner wants Kylie Jenner to date Jaden Smith

7 August 2015 4:36 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Kris Jenner wants her daughter Kylie to ''reconsider'' dating Jaden Smith. The 17-year-old reality star is currently in a relationship with 25-year-old rapper Tyga but her family would reportedly prefer her to be with the 'Karate Kid' actor, who she was previously romantically linked with in 2013. A source said: ''Kylie has been seeing Jaden for support and her mum Kris really wants her to reconsider the romance. ''She'd love her to marry into an acting dynasty and she think they'd make the perfect power couple.'' But with the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star keen to step out of the shadow of her family by launching a music career, she is hoping she and Tyga can become ''even bigger'' than her half-sister Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West. The source added: ''Kylie has been in the studio for months working on her singing. »

The 13 Most Jaden Smith-y Things About Jaden Smith's New Music Video

28 July 2015 3:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jaden Smith is a true artist.  That time he wore a batsuit to the Kimye wedding? Artistry. That time he wore a dress to prom? Artistry. That time he said school was for losers? Pure, unadulterated artistry. For those who are still a little unsure about his creative cred, just know that he is also a bona fide rapper. Take Exhibit A, his new rap song. Taking after the likes of Drake and Kendrick Lamar, Jaden dropped the new track and the accompanying video without prior warning, announcing it all on his Twitter page. As can be expected from the person who once spoke the words, "It's proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe," the music video is »

Omar Sharif in 'Doctor Zhivago.' Egyptian star Omar Sharif, 'The Karate Kid' producer Jerry Weintraub: Brief career recaps A little late in the game – and following the longish Theodore Bikel article posted yesterday – below are brief career recaps of a couple of film veterans who died in July 2015: actor Omar Sharif and producer Jerry Weintraub. A follow-up post will offer an overview of the career of peplum (sword-and-sandal movie) actor Jacques Sernas, whose passing earlier this month has been all but ignored by the myopic English-language media. Omar Sharif: Film career beginnings in North Africa The death of Egyptian film actor Omar Sharif at age 83 following a heart attack on July 10 would have been ignored by the English-language media (especially in the U.S.) as well had Sharif remained a star within the Arabic-speaking world. After all, an "international" star is only worth remembering »

14 July 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Andy Cohen definitely knows by now that it's easy for people to stick their foots in their mouths when they're live. And sometimes it's the Watch What Happens Live! host himself who snacks on his own foot. Last night, Cohen had some rough words for Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg, who, as captured in an Instagram screengrab, appeared to be accusing Kylie Jenner of cultural appropriation for sporting cornrows. Cohen labeled Stenberg "jackhole" of the day for what he assumed was an attempt to needlessly start a feud with Kylie or otherwise share the spotlight.

Apple Music’s Beats 1 Is Exactly What We Want Out of a Streaming Service

13 July 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Apple Music is barely two weeks old, but the amount of exclusive content it has already offered is staggering — and Beats 1, the streaming service’s free 24-hour global internet radio station, is proving to be the platform's, er, beating heart. Zane Lowe, one of its three principal DJs, premiered new music from Eminem and Pharrell. Drake’s first installment of Ovo Sound this weekend included fresh remixes and song premieres. Jaden Smith, St. Vincent, Ezra Koenig, Elton John, and Dr. Dre are just a few names on its ever-expanding list of high-profile DJs. You can tune in to find out who Elton John thinks is this generation’s most important R&B singer (Miguel), what Jaden Smith’s favorite TV show is (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), or to hear the latest from M.I.A., whose “Matahdatah Scroll 01 ‘Broader Than a Border’” premiered on Beats 1 this week, along with a »

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Wish Son Jaden Smith a Happy 17th Birthday With the Help of Some Epic Photos: Take a Look!

8 July 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"Jaden is 17 years old today. I'm just glad he stopped eating paste!" Aren't we all, Will Smith. That was the proud dad's rather awesome message—coupled with an adorable throwback pic of little Jaden Smith chillin' in what looks like a bird cage or other elaborate hanging chair—on the occasion of his son's 17th birthday Wednesday. So, while Dad brought the humor, it was up to Mom to bring the sentiment. (Not that Jada Pinkett Smith forgot the humor or anything...)

Legendary Producer Jerry Weintraub Dies at 77

6 July 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Weintraub, the colorful and controversial producer whose films included “Nashville,” “Diner,” “The Karate Kid” and the trio of “Ocean’s Eleven” films, died Monday of cardiac arrest in Santa Barbara, Calif. He was 77. He had been in poor health recently.

When he received Variety‘s Creative Leadership Award in 2013, Weintraub told Variety that he had a yacht and a Rolls-Royce, but was “not a big Hollywood guy.” Some would disagree. He was actually an old-school Hollywood showman, who understood the relationship between production and marketing. He was also a snappy dresser — his shoes were colorful and fun — who knew how to work the room and how to work the press: He was always available to the media and when he had a film in release, he knew how to maximize public awareness.

But the showiness was backed by hard work. His savvy came after decades of performing in many different jobs in the industry. »
