Every generation needs a voice, and Universal Pictures is hoping that this particular voice can bridge the generation gap. Jem and the Holograms – Jem, Kimber, Aja, and Shana – are back in a new film called simply Jem and the Holograms. The new trailer has been released and it looks like it could be a fairly entertaining interpretation of the animated series. But, judge for yourself.
About The Film:
Jem And The Holograms: As a small-town girl catapults from underground video sensation to global superstar, she and her three sisters begin a one-in-a-million journey of discovering that some talents are too special to keep hidden. In Universal Pictures’ Jem and the Holograms, four aspiring musicians will take the world by storm when they see that the key to creating your own destiny lies in finding your own voice.

Chu‘s latest film finds him adapting a Hasbro animated TV show. Jem and the Holograms, arriving this fall, follows a group of girls who rise to stardom thanks to their music and style, and today […] »

Fresh off yesterday's batch of new images, Universal Pictures has released the first Jem and the Holograms trailer for director Jon M. Chu’s (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) feature film adaptation of the popular 80s cartoon. The musical adventure stars Aubrey Peeples as Jerrica, a shy girl who must take on the musical alter-ego of “Jem” to take care of her family and friends/bandmates, which includes Stefanie Scott as Kimber, Hayley Kiyoko as Aja and Aurora Perrineau as Shana. Chu, who also directed the Justin Bieber documentary Never Say Never, has very deftly found a way to make this campy cartoon relevant for today's generation of teens, but that may be off-putting for grown fans of the original show. There's an earnestness to the tone that I wasn't expecting, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It feels a bit more Step Up than Pitch Perfect, and while that's not exactly my wheelhouse, »

Are you excited? We’re most definitely excited! Check out the brand new poster for the upcoming movie adaptation of our favourite childhood programme Jem And The Holograms.
Directed by Step Up’s Jon M. Chu, Jem And The Holograms tells the story of a small town girl named Jerrica Benton (Nashville‘s Aubrey Peeples) who catapults from an underground video sensation to global superstar named Jem. Alongside her three sisters, she goes on a journey of discovering that some talents are too special to keep hidden.
The film has kept to its roots and placed relatively unknown actresses to star as the band. Alongside Peeples, the film will star Stefanie Scott, Hayley Kiyoko and Aurora Perrineau. Rounding up the cast, and giving the film a big star edge, will be 80s film legend Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis as the film’s antagonist Erica Raymond.

To recap, if you’ve forgotten or it wasn't your generation: In the 1980s, the joint effort of Hasbro, Marvel Productions and Sunbow Productions, created the “G.I. Joe” and “Transformers” cartoon series that launched some pretty huge film franchises as well. Based on that success, that same trio created a cartoon for girls: “Jem & The Holograms,” an animated TV series about an all-girl rock band, the mysterious lead singer and their various adventures. So, sure enough, it’s getting its own film, though perhaps slightly different from the original after-school cartoon. "It's actually about a group of young people who are going to be inundated with this idea of fame and fortune and products and stuff, and within all that, how do you stay true to who you really are?" director Jon M. Chu (“Step Up” series, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”), told USA Today. "That's the real soul of the movie. »

When Beyonce’s brisk female-empowerment jam “Run the World (Girls)” kicks off a key musical number in “Pitch Perfect 2,” it plays as something of a mission statement for the film itself: Both behind and in front of the camera, women call every shot of consequence in this ebulliently entertaining, arguably superior sequel to the 2012 musical comedy hit. Continuing the bawdy misadventures of all-girl college a cappella group the Barden Bellas — this time as they get their motley act together on a global stage — Kay Cannon’s script is even lighter on narrative than its predecessor, but fills any resulting void with a concentrated supply of riotous gags, and a renewed emphasis on the virtues of female collaboration and independence. Actress-producer Elizabeth Banks’ eminently credible feature directing debut should, in its own parlance, crush it at the global box office, sustaining a franchise with potential to outlive the “Glee” fever that inspired it. »

There are really only two things to discuss when it comes to Hot Pursuit. The first is the fact it's produced by, directed by and starring women. This is the kind of progressive feature we've been looking for in Hollywood and Reese Witherspoon is clearly a frontrunner for the cause following her producer credit on two of last year's Oscar-nominated films -- Gone Girl and Wild. Of course, the other talking point is Hot Pursuit is absolutely terrible, which then, sadly, begins to overshadow any progress it may represent. This, of course, is coming from the perspective of a man. Comedy lands differently for everyone and perhaps it's that Y chromosome that's causing me so much trouble, because instead of laughing I was burying my face in my hands, amazed at how long 87 minutes began to feel.

All eyes will be on director Jon M. Chu this October when the G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer pulls back the curtain on his other Hasbro toy adaptation – music-themed Jem and the Holograms – but Chu is already thinking further ahead. Over at Paramount, where he last worked behind the camera on the Joe sequel, the director has become attached to produce action-adventure thriller Escape, from a script by Tze Chun (TV’s Once Upon a Time).
The story is being kept mostly under wraps but centers on an unlikely team of tech whizzes with criminal pasts who come together for a top-secret mission. In addition to writing for ABC’s popular fantasy series, Chun penned the script for an taut, little thriller back in 2013 called Cold Comes the Night, which starred a newly post-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston and Alice Eve. It’s more that gig than his TV work that »

Anne Fletcher has had an admirably diverse career, and as a director, she's proven herself to be at least somewhat commercially adept. "Step Up" inspired a slew of sequels, "The Proposal" was one of the biggest of Sandra Bullock's hits, and now she's back with what looks like a big easy summer comedy hit, "Hot Pursuit." It would be a lot easier to give the film a soft pass if it wasn't so aggressively lazy. I get it. Formula is easy, and there are plenty of films that exist largely to play directly to expectations. Not every film has to be some radical reinvention of the form. A movie like "Hot Pursuit" is incredibly easy for the people who are giving out the greenlights to understand. "Two stars, on the road, mistaken for bad guys, lots of jokes." If you strike gold with that basic formula, you get "Midnight Run. »

Jenna Dewan Tatum rose to fame as a stunning dancer in Step Up, and as it turns out, Channing Tatum's wife can sing as well as she dances. Well, at least at karaoke night, she can!

Before Channing Tatum showed us his moves in Step Up, made us crack up in 21 Jump Street, or stripped down in Magic Mike, he did all of those things as Duke in the 2006 film She's the Man. He first caught our eyes in the comedy alongside Amanda Bynes, playing a charming, silly, and slightly ditzy soccer player with a penchant for taking his shirt off. To celebrate Tatum's birthday on Sunday, we're reliving all the reasons we love the movie, from crazy antics to adorable insecurities and constant shirtlessness. »
In 2006, Channing Tatum's sexy dance moves and seriously hot onscreen chemistry with his now-wife, Jenna Dewan, stole our hearts in Step Up, prompting us to go back and ogle his abs in She's the Man - and we've been on the Channing Tatum train ever since. He really brought it all together in 2012, combining his knack for shirtlessness and impressive dancing abilities in Magic Mike, making us laugh in 21 Jump Street, and making us cry in The Vow. Now, he's going to do it all over again when Magic Mike Xxl hits theaters on July 1. Keep reading for even more reasons you can't help but love Channing, who turns 35 on Sunday. »
Channing Tatum turns 35 on Sunday, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate than with plenty of onscreen eye candy. In 2012, he made us swoon with his sexy strip routines in Magic Mike, but Tatum's dance moves first won hearts back in 2006 with Step Up - including the heart of his costar-turned-wife, Jenna Dewan. Since then, the heartthrob has shown that he can look hot no matter what he's wearing, whether it's a uniform, a swimsuit, or little more than a tie. Heck, he even charmed us in She's the Man. In honor of his birthday, take a look at Channing Tatum's sexiest movie moments over the years. Plus, if it's just Magic Mike Xxl pictures you're looking for, we have you covered. »
