Nick Robinson and Amandla Stenberg star in trailer for Everything Everything

14 February 2017 10:26 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Last year’s Me Before You had to be the number one ‘chick flick’ (sorry, romantic drama) of the year despite the controversy of its subject. Warner Bros. are looking to up the romance stakes in Everything, Everything and lo and behold they have chosen Valentine’s Day to release its trailer… how cliché!

Everything, Everything sees The Hunger Games very own Amandla Stenberg as Maddy, a teenage girl kept in the confines of her own home because of an illness she has which means she cannot go outside. Along comes the boy next door in the form of Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) as Olly and without even officially meeting falls for his charming texts – well that’s what we can gather from the trailer.

Every Time Beyoncé Has Literally Owned the GRAMMYs

12 February 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Extolling Beyoncé as Queen of the GRAMMYs isn't an opinion -- it's an objective fact. With 53 previous nominations, she is the most-nominated female artist in history. And considering the nine nominations she earned this year, including Lemonade for Album of the Year and "Formation" for Record and Song of the Year, and Yonce need not worry about anyone usurping that title anytime soon.

And that's just nominations! Ahead of Sunday's Grammy Awards, look back on Bey's reign over music's most prestigious awards show, including her 20 wins, her best performances and the history she's made along the way.

Becoming Beyoncé: 20 Things You Don’t Know About the Singer’s Journey to Superstardom

10 February 2017 11:22 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Between her Super Bowl appearance, which got fans into ‘formation,’ and an HBO special combined with the surprise release of Lemonade and her subsequent world tour, Beyoncé was the undisputed queen of 2016. And this year, following the announcement that she’s pregnant with twins and slated to make history at the GRAMMYs, she’s also scheduled to headline Coachella, marking the first time a female artist has appeared at the top of the schedule of the California music and arts festival in a decade. There’s no disputing that 2017 will once again fall under her reign.

I first met Beyoncé at a Sony Music party when she was, well, still a teenager and I was the entertainment editor at InStyle magazine. Years -- and many platinum records -- later, Beyoncé chose me to help write Soul Survivors, the authorized autobiography of Destiny's Child. Over the next decade, we’d go on to spend time together at her »

Will Musicals See a ‘La La Land’ Boost?

9 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The rap on musicals used to be “audiences don’t want to see people breaking into song.” Now that “La La Land” has charmed audiences by doing just that, what does it mean for the future of live-action screen musicals?

“Whatever musicals come next will have to be good. That’s the test,” says Justin Paul, one of the Oscar-nominated lyricists for “La La Land.” “I have to believe that other studios, other producers, would only be encouraged by the impact of ‘La La Land,’ both critically and at the box office.”

Adds fellow “La La Land” lyricist Benj Pasek: “We feel like our generation has been so primed for musical content. We grew up with the resurgence of Disney animation and all that followed from that. In hindsight, it makes sense that people would be receptive; so many of us grew up with our first stories being told through song. »

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast pre-sales “rival those of a superhero movie”

4 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Given that its trailer shattered records back in November with almost 130 million plays in its first 24 hours, Disney must be very confident that it has another hit on its hands with next month’s Beauty and the Beast, and early tracking seems to support that, with pre-sales rivaling “those of a superhero movie.”

“With its dazzling new trailers, [Beauty and the Beast] is creating tremendous buzz among movie fans of all ages,” said Erik Davis in a statement, managing editor of ticket site Fandango (via Market Watch). “Its pre-sales rival those of a superhero movie.”

Davis went on to reveal that Beauty and the Beast is currently outperforming advance ticket sales on Finding Dory, which grossed $486.3 million domestically and over $1 billion worldwide last year.

Multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban took to Twitter to announce that he has recorded an original song entitled “Evermore” for Disney’s much-anticipated Beauty and the Beast. The song is “a soaring ballad,” written by Disney composer Alan Menken and lyricist Tim Rice, that will be featured on the film’s soundtrack and play during the end credits.

Like most of the world, Groban seems to be a big fan of Beauty and the Beast, as well as Menken and Rice. In a statement, he said, “I am honored to sing this beautiful new song by two of my absolute favorites, Alan Menken and Tim Rice. Beauty and the Beast has been with me since my childhood and to have a musical connection to this new film makes me so happy.”
