YouTube CEOSusan Wojcicki’s 2016 VidCon keynote delivered a simple message: If you’ve felt marginalized and seek community, come to us.
“YouTube gives people of any race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or interest a place to come together and a place to belong,” she said, emphasizing the importance of community to YouTube’s success. “When people talk about community, especially when they’re here at VidCon, the first thing they often mention are the screaming fans… But what I hope you take away when you visit VidCon isn’t just the enthusiasm, it’s the sense of belonging that exists here.”
To present YouTube’s programming slate, Wojcicki yielded the stage to Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s Global Head of Original Content, who outlined the four major projects upcoming from YouTube Red, the company’s original content subscription service, and eight new series in development.

Taking the things up many notches with the dance and music is none other than the rockstar herself – Shruti Haasan. Shruti, who’s in La shooting for Sabaash Naidu – the trilingual with her father Kamal Haasan – will be seen dancing to the steps of none other than the Step Up series choreographer Jamal Sims for a special song. The song is believed to be focused on Shruti’s character and is promised to be one of the most incredible dance songs that will be on screen in recent times.
Says a source insider, “A true blue fan girl, Shruti has been very excited about working on this film being one of her dad’s biggest admirers. To share screen space with one of the most celebrated cinematic icons is definitely a dream come true for her. She plays Kamal Haasan’s character’s daughter in the film, who’s extremely smart and stylish. For a dance number picturized on Shruti, the team has brought on board Jamal Sims – who’s known to be one of the best dancers and choreographers in the hip hop and street dance forms. Shruti apparently rehearsed with Jamal and his team with a lot of fervor, despite being a terrific dancer herself to ensure she got every movement perfectly. They have just about kick started the song shoot and the entire team is looking forward to the end product.”
Looks like there is plenty to look forward to from the film in addition to the family coming together.

The last time Lin-Manuel Miranda attended the Tony Awards, he was nervous because “In the Heights” needed to win in order to lure audiences. It won best new musical.
That’s not a problem for his ticket-scalpers’ delight, “Hamilton,” his second Broadway musical. He stars in the production, wrote the book, music, and lyrics, and it scored a record-breaking 16 nominations. It swept the Tonys Sunday night with 11 awards including best new musical, and could eventually earn over $1 billion worldwide, according to The New York Times.
“Hamilton” also won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and a Grammy Award for best musical theater album. Because Miranda won an Emmy for writing Neil Patrick Harris’s closing rap at the 2014 Tonys, all he needs is an Oscar to become a member of the Egot club.
That’s not an impossibility, as Miranda’s moving his star to Hollywood—more specifically, Disney. J.J. Abrams »

Now You See Me 2 brings back the Four Horsemen, not the Biblical figures of Armageddon but the four magician/illusionists from the first film, who used magic to reveal corporate misbehaviorand redistribute a little wealth.
The magicians from the first film, who call themselves the Four Horseman, return, again played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, but joined by a new magician played by Lizzy Caplan. Last time the magicians used their skill as illusionists in a Robin Hood-type heists to expose corporate bad guys, which put them on the run from the FBI.

That mission takes them to Macau, China, and the oldest magic shop in the world. To accomplish their goal, the Horseman have »

It's hard to connect the dots between all of the movies Jon M. Chu has directed. Every time you think a pattern is emerging, he seems to pivot to something else. He directed the two best Step Up movies, but before he could become "that dance movie guy," he made the surprisingly fascinating documentary Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. From there he jumps over to big budget action with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and from that to low budget teen drama with Jem and the Holograms. He is a man of many hats, to say the least. Now Chu is back into flashier, bigger budget mode with Now You See Me 2, a sequel to 2013's surprise breakout hit about magicians who use their powers of illusion to rob from the rich and give back to the poor. If anything, NYSM2 is kind of a...

Is there anything Channing Tatum can't do? As if filming Kingsman: The Golden Circle and developing Magic Mike Live weren't enough, Harvard Business School announced via Facebook Thursday that Tatum has enrolled in one of its executive education courses. Throughout the month of June, the 36-year-old actor will join three other megastars—LL Cool J, Pau Gasol and Chris Paul—in professor Anita Elberse's class. Tatum's involvement marked the university's "first ever 'live case.'" The actor—known for films like Step Up and Hail, Caesar!—co-led a workshop about how dance movies impact Hollywood. "Participants shared ideas to help him innovate in the film »
“Now You See Me 2” is the kind of sequel that has all but gone out of fashion: a follow-up to a blockbuster so flaky and off-center that even those who made the original probably never expected it to spawn a second chapter. The new film is an even wilder lark—a madly spinning top of a movie, powered by an eagerness to please that somehow comes off as more innocent than calculated. The film knows that it’s playing you, and in almost every scene invites the audience to embrace the fact that it’s being played. It now feels downright retro, and maybe even a little exotic — in a good way — to encounter a sequel that isn’t all about setting up a five-year plan of franchise plot points. “Now You See Me 2” is more like a giddy piece of cheese from the ’80s, a chance to »
