Flipping the Flop: How Disney’s Newsies Went from the Big Screen to Broadway and Back Again

13 February 2017 2:04 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Disney’s 2012 Tony-winning Broadway musical Newsies makes its debut on the big screen this week, playing in movie theaters nationwide for three days beginning Thursday as part of a new partnership between Fathom Events and Disney Theatrical Productions.

It’s an unexpected move for the cult favorite, which had a long journey to success.

Newsies was primed to be the High School Musical hit of 1992 — with a cast of singing and dancing teens (including a young Christian Bale), a score by composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Jack Feldman, and future HSM director Kenny Ortega at the helm. »

The best musical numbers in 21st century films

19 January 2017 11:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Catherine Pearson Jan 23, 2017

From School Of Rock and Enchanted through to Hail Caesar and Moana, we look at the unmissable musical numbers from modern movies...

The world has gone gaga for La La Land and it’s not difficult to see why. We love a good musical number. Sometimes there’s nothing more uplifting than a catchy tune with some fun choreography and other times music is the best, if only, way to depict a character's despair, fear or hope. Music taps into something very primal in us all and can often extract laughter and tears easier than two hours’ worth of dialogue.

Numerous classic musicals have graced the big screen since cinema began, but the 21st century alone has seen some fantastic songs in film. Some considered ‘musical films’ and others ‘films with music’, here are my top picks for this century’s best on-screen musical sequences.

What Would Happen If Regina George Joined High School Musical? The Internet Has an Answer for That

18 January 2017 2:59 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Life's unanswered questions are innumerable. Is there society outside of our planet? What happens when you die? How many licks does it actually take? What if Regina George were a cast member of High School Musical? Luckily, not all of life's big questions remain unanswered.  Today's major revelation comes by way of a YouTuber, Elle Mills, who is doing the Lord's work. She herself felt that nagging wonder, why couldn't Regina be a Wildcat? And unlike the rest of society who merely sit around debating life outside of our solar system, she got up off her butt and did something about it. She created a mash-up video; and what a mash-up it is.  The resulting clip »

Descendants 2 Trailer Introduces Ursula's Daughter Uma

16 January 2017 4:56 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Disney Channel's The Descendants was the top cable TV movie of 2015, a sequel was quickly ordered, with the beloved characters from the first movie all set to return, along with a few new characters as well. Today we have the first poster and trailer for Descendants 2, which offers our first look at Uma, the daughter of Little Mermaid villain Ursula, played by China Anne McClain. We also have a photo that features Uma alongside two more new characters, Harry (Thomas Doherty), the son of Peter Pan villain Captain Hook and Gus (Dylan Playfair), the son of Beauty and the Beast villain Gaston. Here's what director Kenny Ortega had to say about these new characters, and how they fit into the story.

La La Land review – worth making a song and dance about

15 January 2017 12:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling lay on the charm in Whiplash director Damien Chazelle’s magical love letter to the golden age of Hollywood

The Australian film-maker Stephan Elliott once jokingly told me that he’d made The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert to bring screen musicals back from the grave into which Xanadu had put them. Yet despite reports of their death, musicals have never gone away, providing the backbone of the movie business in key territories such as India, and regularly flourishing elsewhere across the globe. In 2008, Phyllida Lloyd’s film of the Abba-fest Mamma Mia! became a record-breaking UK hit (paving the way for Sunshine on Leith et al), while stage-to-screen adaptations, from Chicago to Les Misérables, have consistently charmed Oscar voters in America.

Alongside Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge!, early 21st-century cinema has given us everything from Lars von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark »

That’s the basis, in part, for NBC’s DC Comics comedy Powerless, a workplace sitcom with an added superpowered twist, which is set to premiere early next month. To announce its not-so-supersized debut, the peacock station released the show’s first official trailer this week, and you can check it out up above.

Starring Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Danny Pudi (Community), Christina Kirk (A to Z), Ron Funches (Undatable), Kate Miccuci (Don’t Think Twice) and Josh Fadem (30 Rock), Powerless follows the employees of Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, that specializes in products for the defenseless, Aka the powerless, to make them feel safer. »
