Ashley Tisdale Debuts Strawberry Blonde Locks

28 July 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Ashley Tisdale just got a fresh new look!  The "High School Musical" alum took to Instagram on Monday to show off her newly dyed strawberry blonde tresses.  In the photo, the 30-year-old holds out her light red hair while pursing her red lips for the camera. Tisdale looks cute a casual rocking a vintage white T-shirt, black jeans and a flannel tied around her waist.  "Ive never been this color before @kristin_ess made me a "strawberry bronde"!!! Details on @thehautemessdotcom coming soon!!" she captioned the pretty pic.   While the former blonde's new color is pretty subtle, we do think it's a fun change for the summer!  Ashley's hair makeover couldn't have come at a more perfect time -- the actress will be starring on TBS in a new comedy called "Clipped," where she plays a lady who works in a barbershop.  We can't wait to see more hairstyles from »

Trailer For Zac Efron’s We Are Your Friends

27 July 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The directorial debut of Catfish: The T.V. Show’s Max Joseph, We Are Your Friends, at first glance, may look the usual cliched underdog story of one young guy trying to make it big, in this case in the electronic dance music scene that was a huge deal in the late 2000’s, and I myself will admit that I let out the exclamation “Great, more pretty people with pretty people problems” when the trailer started. But we really can’t overlook the Zac Efron factor here. He’s come a long way since High School Musical, and a few missteps withstanding, he’s proven a very competent actor that has more to offer than just bellowing out pop songs on the Disney Channel. On top of that, Joseph seems to be imbuing proceedings with a stylish flourish that should keep things interesting. Released: August 28th  »

Kristin Chenoweth, Kenny Ortega Celebrate Premiere of Disney Channel’s ‘Descendants’

25 July 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A high school film filled with show tunes fared well for Disney Channel nine years ago. The network gives the “High School Musical” recipe another try with helmer Kenny Ortega in its biggest production to date, “Descendants.”

The TV movie premiered Friday at Walt Disney Studios. Before the screening, Disney Channel President Gary Marsh told attendees about the two and a half years of work that went into the project.

“We have now made 100 Disney Channel original movies, and this is by far the biggest and most ambitious movie we’ve ever attempted,” Marsh said.

The feature follows the malevolent teenage offspring of popular Disney villains from “Sleeping Beauty,” “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “101 Dalmatians” and “Aladdin.” The live-action pic fuses classic tales and high school drama with original music for Mouse fans of all ages, an attempt at reaching past the network’s target demos.

Meet Zac Efron's New 'Friends'

24 July 2015 7:07 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Zac Efron lets more than just the beat drop in the newest trailer for his coming-of-age drama "We Are Your Friends."

The "High School Musical" heartthrob stars as aspiring DJ Cole Carter, who's facing a quarter-life crisis as he and his friends struggle to find purpose and inspiration amid the desolate suburbs of Los Angeles.

Cole's looking for a ticket out of his mind-numbing day job in the San Fernando Valley, where he's surrounded by "actors, waiters and wannabes" while spinning for free at local parties in his spare time.

'Descendants' Preview Brings Classic Disney Characters to Life

23 July 2015 6:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

High School Musical director Kenny Ortega is returning to the Disney Channel with the all-new original TV movie Descendants, which brings some awfully wicked offspring to life. The first 6-minutes have debuted online, with Kenny Ortega introducing the movie and the wild thrills it contains. Here, we get to meet the teenage son of Belle and Beast, who rule over the fantasy kingdom of Auradon. All of the fairytale kingdoms have come together as one, for a story about what happens after 'happily ever after'.

Kenny Ortega describes Disney's Descendants as a modern fairy tale. As he puts it, it's a 'Once Upon a Now' story that will surely resonate with today's youth, as well as their parents alike. This opening prologue springs from the interface of an iPad, telling how Beast became president of Auradon, booting all of the villains and their sidekicks off to the Isle of the Lost. »

The Gallows review – depressingly bad amateur dramatics scarer

16 July 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The story of a community’s attempt to exorcise the horror of a student being hanged on stage is nasty, dumb and terribly acted

Every exhausted cliche of the found-footage horror genre is paraded in this depressingly bad film: the screaming and running while miraculously keeping the important stuff in shot, the sudden cut to blackness and silence held for some seconds – with supernatural static bursts of audio fizz – even the female lead doing an eyeliner-smudged sobbing monologue to camera. Found footage often gives us good, unpretentious, naturalistic performances: but the acting here is just terrible. A smalltown Us high school is putting on a play called The Gallows as a kind of community catharsis exercise, because 20 years earlier a terrible accident took place when this very same play was being performed: a student was hanged on stage, in front of the horrified audience. (There is, admittedly, a nice pastiche »

“Good Luck is Bad Luck” and the Theatrical Superstitions of ‘The Gallows’

10 July 2015 9:19 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The first time I performed on stage, I was cast as a lead in a baseball musical in the first grade. The rest of the cast was comprised of 3rd graders who were Furious that a first grader was given a lead, but I apparently didn’t suck and I nabbed a starring role. My parents sat in the back of the auditorium next to the door just in case I was awful and they needed to sneak out. Luckily, I took to the stage the way a duck takes to water and I’ve been singing and acting on stage ever since. As I write this, I’ve returned home from an opening night performance of The Pajama Game, a performance I put on only hours after having caught a showing of the newest Blumhouse project, The Gallows.

A paint-by-numbers found footage horror film, The Gallows is sort of the anti-High School Musical. »

TV Review: ‘Teen Beach 2′

24 June 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two years have passed since “Teen Beach Movie,” but just three months of time onscreen. And that offers about as much as anyone needs to know about the sequel, “Teen Beach 2,” which clearly feels no incentive to tamper with success. The only wrinkle, such as it is, involves reversing the first movie’s central conceit, bringing characters from a ’60s beach movie into the present-day real world, instead of vice versa. But all that – and the other plot threads stitched together from various sources – is a pretty thin excuse to reunite the gang to dance and sing again.

To its credit, Disney Channel’s commitment to live-action musicals introduces its audience to a genre that doesn’t gain much exposure elsewhere on TV, so the second-guessing should be kept to a minimum. That said, given that some parents will doubtless be lulled into sitting through these exercises with their kids, »
