To promote Straight Outta Compton the film.s producers created a rather ingenious meme that allows people to put a picture of themselves behind the film.s title, with Compton replaced by said individual.s hometown. It.s a harmless, quick, fun gimmick. But everyone needs to stop doing it now because Better Midler just won. And her victory is even more emphatic because no-one actually knew it was a competition. Check out her game, set and match Straight Outta Compton meme below: "Straight Outta Compton" is the story of the "world's most dangerous group," but I think I know a more dangerous one: pic.twitter.com/mf55Z7jgAO .

We live in a world where, no matter how long it.s been, the possibility of getting a sequel to a beloved motion picture is never entirely beyond the realm of possibility, no matter how unlikely it seems. Hell, Tron: Legacy hit 28 years after Tron, and it took 30 to get Mad Max: Fury Road. Well, if Bette Midler has anything to say about it, we could still see Hocus Pocus 2. Just last year, Midler, along with Hocus Pocus costars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy expressed interest in revisiting their roles as the Sanderson sisters, a trio of witches in the original 1993 film. There has been no movement since then, but that.s not getting the Divine Miss M down. According to Broadway World, during a recent concert in Phoenix, Arizona, she performed "I Put a Spell on You" dressed as here character Winifred, and at one point she yelled: »
The Sanderson sisters will rise again: Disney has just announced that the trio of witches from "Hocus Pocus" are set to take the stage for a new show at Disney World during the park's annual Halloween celebration.
Witches Winifred, Mary, and Sarah Sanderson (played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker, respectively, in the 1993 flick) will star in the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, a stage show that will team the trio with a host of other classic Disney villains. Though those villains' identities have yet to be fully revealed (so far Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty" is the only confirmed participant), concept art for the event suggests that baddies such as Cruella DeVille from "101 Dalmations," the Evil Queen from "Snow White," and Jafar from "Aladdin" will also be a part of the show.
Here's the official concept for the event, according to Disney Parks:

I'm a sucker for killer looking key art. I'm digging on the cover art for the upcoming horror film Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story.
You can see a larger version of the poster art below the official details. Also, check out the trailer while you're at it. The film releases on VOD and in select theaters on May 15th.
From The Press Release:
Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story is a full movie continuation of the Marble Hornets YouTube series - a horror story chronicling the strange events and occurrences of a group of high school friends through about 100 entries over the course of 5 years.
The last entry for the series was 9 months ago, so it's about time for an update, right? With 80 million YouTube views and over 408k+ subscribers the cult-like following agrees.
This summer marks the 40th anniversary of when Jim Sharman's The Rocky Horror Picture Show first hit theaters. To honor 40 years of Dr. Frank-n-Furter, perhaps you're looking to attend a midnight screening of the film, or maybe you plan on hosting your own Rocky Horror Show party. As it turns out, the folks at Fox are celebrating the occasion with a two-hour TV special remake of the seminal horror comedy musical.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is developing The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event (title not finalized), a two-hour TV special remake of 1975's The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which in turn is based on The Rocky Horror Show stage musical by Richard O'Brien. Kenneth Ortega (1993's beloved Hocus Pocus, High School Musical) is set to direct, executive produce, and choreograph the project. It looks like O'Brien's original script from his 1973 play could be used for the TV special, »

Campy cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show is close to turning 40 and fans can soon celebrate the milestone with an upcoming TV remake. Kenny Ortega (High School Musical, Hocus Pocus) has been tapped to direct and choreograph the project, which is currently in development with Fox.
According to Deadline, the two-hour The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event, as it is tentatively titled, will be a "reimagining" of the feature where book and score will remain untouched, but the visuals will be reworked. Lou Adler, who produced the original film, »
We have entered the age of "Event TV". Fox is prepping to remake the cult classic film The Rocky Horror Picture Show in a two-hour musical event special. Kenny Ortega (Highschool Musical, Hocus Pocus) is set to direct the reboot alongside Gail Berman (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) as executive producer. Lou Adler, who executive produced the original film, is also on board. Tentatively titled The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event, the special has a cast-contingent order at Fox. My gut reaction to this is - wow, that's going to be a disaster - but I'll reserve judgment until a cast is announced. The fact that they've got Adler on board is promising, and Ortega certainly knows how to direct musical performances. Plus, this is the guy who gave us Newsies and Hocus Pocus, two of my generation's great cult classic. If they nail the casting, it could turn out »

It is a momentous day for Sex and the City fans around the world as Sarah Jessica Parker celebrates her 50th birthday. While the role of Carrie Bradshaw made Sarah a fashion icon and a superstar, she has starred in a wide variety of films and television shows over four decades. Parker began her career as a child star on the stage in Annie, and has gone on to become an enduring fixture in pop culture.
Her movie career was launched with supporting roles in '80s teen comedies Footloose and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, but soon she grew into a leading lady with memorable roles in a string of early 1990s comedies. Parker might be best known for romantic comedies these days, but over the last 30 years she's impressed critics in roles as diverse a mystical witch, an egotistical talkshow host and the embodiment of a single woman of the 2000s. »
Bette Midler can makeanything sound good. The iconic singer appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night and turned Kim Kardashian's most ridiculous social media chatter into the lyrics of an emotional ballad. The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star is known for sharing pretty much everything on Twitter, so when it came to selecting the best material, there was a lot to chose from. "Here to sing some of the famous tweets from a woman for whom she named one of her chickens, Miss Kim Kardashian, please welcome Bette Midler," Kimmel said as he introduced the Grammy award winner. The first tweet lyric involved the 34-year-old's opinion on the infamous dress debate that took the internet by storm recently. "What color is that dress? I see white and gold Kanye see's black and blue, Who is color blind," the 69-year-old sang smoothly to the piano accompaniment. Another classic tweet »

Maleficent had Pirates 5 star Brenton Thwaites. Cinderella has Game of Thrones hottie Richard Madden. So who is Beauty and the Beast going to get to play its Prince Charming? Disney already secured Harry Potter.s Emma Watson as Belle for the live-action adaptation, and the latest rumor on the street suggests that the apple of every woman.s eye, Ryan Gosling, the meme man himself, is eyed for the role. We advise taking this report with a grain of salt (or seven). It comes from the Tracking Board, which doesn.t have the best track record with scoops. Remember that time they said that we.d be getting a Hocus Pocus sequel with Tina Fey? However, they got part of that story right: Fey is working on a new witchy movie, but it.s not a sequel to the Bette Midler classic. Keeping that in mind, though, the outlet »
