Rihanna becomes a mystical being in the new music video for her single “Sledgehammer.” The song, written by Sia, is featured on the “Star Trek Beyond” soundtrack and was first heard on the latest trailer for the latest installment of the sci-fi franchise.

Wearing alien-esque makeup and an orange ensemble, the singer is seen in a desert-type location on another planet. She uses her supernatural powers to move boulders and create an orb full of energy, until finally becoming one with space. The Starship Enterprise also makes a special appearance at the end. 

According to Rihanna, this is the first-ever music video filmed entirely in IMAX.

Kanye West Dares Naked ‘Famous’ Celebs to Sue Him: How They Might Make the Case

29 June 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After debuting his new video “Famous” this weekend Kanye West tweeted, “Can somebody sue already? I’ll wait.” And he’s still waiting — but for how much longer?

The music video is essentially recreation of painter Vincent Desiderio’s “Sleep,” featuring nude celebrities, most of whom aren’t really there: Taylor Swift, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Caitlyn Jenner, President George W. Bush, Chris Brown, Donald Trump, Bill Cosby, along West’s wife Kim Kardashian, the rapper himself and two of the couple’s ex-lovers (Ray J and Amber Rose) all sleeping next to each other in a large bed.

While the film is a mixture of real people and digital recreations, at least some of these subjects’ nude likenesses were recreated without their consent. Which raises the question: If West got his wish and one of his famous subjects sued him, would the case hold water?

In short: Filmmakers who have »

Kanye West's "Famous" Video Is Infamous, But Will Any Celebrity Dare Sue?

28 June 2016 2:22 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

If an artist wished to purposely create a music video that would lead 50 judges to opine the work was legally permissible and another 50 judges to conclude the opposite, one could hardly do better than Kanye West’s video for “Famous,” which features realistic — and nude — depictions of celebrities including Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Taylor Swift and Chris Brown in bed with West and his wife, Kim Kardashian. Undoubtedly, “Famous” is provocative. In fact, that could be its raison d'etre — as evidenced by West’s since-deleted tweet, “Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait.” But

Assassin’s Creed International Trailer Orders Michael Fassbender To The Spanish Inquisition

28 June 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If there was one takeaway from New Regency’s debut trailer for Assassin’s Creed, it’s that Kanye West hit “I Am A God” doesn’t necessarily have much of an effect when paired with a movie that’s largely set during the Spanish Inquisition.

Thankfully, that’s a misstep that has been rectified with the release of the film’s international trailer, which is essentially a truncated version of what we’ve seen before only with a dubbed soundtrack.

For the uninitiated, Ubisoft and New Regency’s feature film will see Michael Fassbender take point as Callum Lynch, a nobody that is quietly executed by the deceitful Abstergo Industries. But don’t fret; our hero is quickly brought back to life so that he can experiment with the Animus, a bleeding-edge piece of technology that allows one test subject to experience the lives led by their respective ancestors. »

Kanye West’s ‘Famous’ Music Video Is Even Better With Stephen Colbert (Video)

28 June 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert wanted to be featured in Kanye West’s “Famous” music video so badly, he just had to do it himself. The “Late Show” host added himself to the star-studded bedroom lineup in a parody he showed his CBS audience on Monday night. “I wish you could smell it in here, it is like a cage in a zoo,” a topless Colbert, sporting a Breathe Right strip on his nose, joked when the camera focused on him after passing President George W. Bush. “They’re going to have to burn this bed.” Also Read: 5 Takeaways From Kanye West's »

Stephen Colbert Edits Himself Into Kanye West’s ‘Famous’ Video In Amazing Clip — Watch

28 June 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Rapper Kanye West debuted the music video for his song “Famous,” the first single off of his seventh album “The Life of Pablo,” which features synthetic nude, sleeping bodies of many famous celebrities, such as George W. Bush, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, and Taylor Swift. Though the video sparked controversy for its nudity, provocation, and the potentially unlawful use of celebrity likeness, there’s one person who’s outraged about the video, but for a different reason: It’s because he was cut out.

Michael Fassbender is Still Jumping in International Trailer For ‘Assassin’s Creed’

28 June 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One conclusion the marketing team at 20th Century Fox seem to have arrived at with their latest blockbuster fantasy Assassin’s Creed is that everyone likes Kanye West — or at least they think so. The new international trailer has just been released, and it is a truncated baby-version of the first domestic trailer. It hits all the musts: Michael Fassbender sleeping, Marion Cotillard conceit-splaining to a confused Fassbender, a CGI bird flying over Fassbender, face paint on a stern Fassbender, and jumping murders from the sky by Fassbender. This is all over Kanye West’s “I Am A God,” widely argued as a poor decision for a film set during the Spanish Inquisition. Truth be told, a more apt description is that it’s a blockbuster film based on a blockbuster video game franchise started in 2007 that has found its way into the zeitgeist of 15-to-30-somethings, so I believe Kanye works fine. »

Apparently, there were a few more celebrities that didn't quite make the cut for the final version of Kanye West's "Famous" art visual.  While the Grammy-winning rapper debuted his final version Friday during a live event at Los Angeles' The Forum, a few bits of unaired footage managed to see the limelight on late-night television Monday evening.  While the original features representations of celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, and Bill Cosby, all lined up naked in a bed together, the new clips present two more unexpected public figures.  In an alternate version released on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host poked fun at the »

Why Aren't Kim Kardashian and Harry Styles in the Absolutely Fabulous Movie?

28 June 2016 5:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Rumors of Kim Kardashian and Harry Styles cameos in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie have been greatly exaggerated. Actually, they're just plain false. Ab Fab stars Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are setting the record straight. "I don't know who put the rumor out but it was never a fact," Saunders told E! News about Kim K. while promoting the film this weekend in London. "It's not like [Kim] was on the phone going, 'But I want to be in it. I want to do it.'" One report claimed that Saunders said that Kanye West's wife was "too crass" to be in the movie. "I never said that," Saunders said. "I honestly don't think I would ever say »
