Exclusive: Yaya DaCosta Channels Whitney Houston In the Studio

23 December 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

A biopic chronicling the life and career of iconic singer Whitney Houston is coming to Lifetime in January, and ETonline has an exclusive look at Yaya DaCosta's powerful performance as the music legend.

In the clip, fans get a closer look at DaCosta's portrayal of the seven-time Grammy winner as she records the chart-topping single, "I'm Your Baby Tonight." A happier version of Houston--working on her third studio album--is seen in the studio.

While DaCosta looks convincing as Houston, it's singer Deborah Cox who is actually heard on the 1990 single, which was re-recorded specifically for the film. "Angela [Bassett], who is a friend, approached me about singing a few songs," Cox tells Billboard of being asked to fill in for the late-singer on "I'm Every Woman," "I Will Always Love You," and "Greatest Love of All." "Obviously, the best-case scenario would be to use Whitney’s voice. But we’re all »

Ben Silverman on Working with Netflix, Storytelling for Advertisers, Being on the Road

22 December 2014 1:11 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Days after “Marco Polo,” produced by Electus and The Weinstein Co., bowed in France on Dec. 12, day and date with the U.S, Electus chairman-founder Ben Silverman was at the Cristal Festival, nearly 6,000 feet up in the French Alps In Courchevel, to deliver a keynote speech, “Creativity and Big Ideas” as part of Cristal’s Brand Entertainment & Content Summit.

France’s Cristal Fest was high-level in other ways. AOL’s digital guru David Shing spoke before Silverman (on “There Are Still Only 24 Hours in a Day”); Trigger Street Prods’ “House of Cards” producer Dana Brunetti was interviewed afterwards, before receiving an Outstanding Merit Award.

Silverman wasn’t in Courchevel for the skiing, such as its respected Grand Couloir black ski run. Via Electus, he is involved in at least three of the most talked-up business lines in entertainment: High-end series – for instance, Netflix’s “Marco Polo,” produced by Electus and »

TVLine Items: Joss Whedon vs. HD Buffy, Better Call Saul Poster and More

15 December 2014 12:22 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Four little words made waves in the Whedonverse this weekend: “Widescreen Buffy is nonsense.”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon finally came out swinging Saturday against the HD version of his iconic series, now airing on Pivot. Originally shot in a 4:3 aspect ratio, the new 16:9 format is loaded with questionable changes, including awkward cropping, suspect lighting and even occasional appearances by crew members in shots, all of which is carefully detailed in this Facebook post.

A prime example is this shot from the Season 1 episode “Angel,” which — without the original, darker filter — makes it appear as though »

Watch: Salma Hayek on Why She's Passionate About ‘Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet’ (Exclusive Video Interview)

10 December 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

I sat down with Hayek recently in Doha, where her animated film, which debuted at Cannes, closed the Ajyal Youth Film Festival. Hayek, who produced "Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet" and voices the character of Kamila, described how her connection to Gibran’s inspirational book, which has sold more than 100 million copies since its 1923 publication, initially came through her Lebanese grandfather. With its absence of plot and parable-like soliloquies, “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet” was always going to be a tough adaptation but Hayek brought the same stubborn determination that allowed her to get “Frida” and “Ugly Betty” made to bring her labor of love to fruition. Creatively, her solution was to install “The Lion King” director Roger Allers at the helm and give individual chapters to different internationally renowned animators, granting them total creative freedom. Allers then wove these eight strands together with a framing narrative added on top of Gibran’s poems. »

Lifetime’s ‘Whitney’ Trailer Details Singer’s Career, Relationships and Struggles

5 December 2014 10:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The newly-released trailer for Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic shows the network isn’t holding back when it comes to detailing the late singer’s meteoric rise to stardom, troubled relationship with husband Bobby Brown or her drug use.

"I’m a grown woman now and I am going my own way," Houston, played by America’s Next Top Model alum Yaya DaCosta, tearfully tells her mother Cissy in one scene.

The frenetically-paced trailer offers a look at some of the singer’s most iconic moments, including a live performance of "I Will Always Love You," Houston and Brown’s 1992 wedding ceremony and the couple's performance at the 1993 Billboard Music Awards, where they wore matching red outfits.

Lifetime

The network also isn't shying away from the darker parts of the singer's life, detailing Houston's tumultuous marriage to Brown with glimpses of infidelity, violent fights and the couple's descent into cocaine addiction.

Expect major Netflix wins at Golden Globes for 'Orange is the New Black' and 'House of Cards'

1 December 2014 3:35 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

If you're able to book a spot at the Netflix Golden Globes party this year, make your reservation now. We are predicting the upstart online streamers to have major victories for the top comedy and drama prizes. Our current predictions center shows that "Orange is the New Black" leads with 15/8 odds to win Best Comedy Series. And "House of Cards" is picked to prevail at 15/8 odds for Best Drama Series. It would be a big triumph because we haven't seen a network claim both series trophies since ABC in 2006 with "Ugly Betty" and "Grey's Anatomy." -Break- Related: 'Orange is the New Black' changes to comedy at Globes, SAG At last year's Globes, Netflix submitted "Orange" in the drama categories, but it only picked up one nomination: Taylor Schilling as Best TV Drama Actress. A few months later, Netflix decided on a much more successful strategy by going for »

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Digital Release Review

The How to Train Your Dragon franchise put together a fair stock of extended content before it even got to the sequel, and the second film, while not quite as solid as the first, avoids the usual pitfalls of sequels, and delivers all the fun and adventure viewers are after.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens with an introduction to the new world Hiccup’s village has become, what with dragons now a part of daily life. Before long, Hiccup gets a surprise he never would have thought possible, he meets an unknown dragon rider. This leads to some wondrous encounters, and some unnerving ones, but ultimately Hiccup learns that the mystery rider is his mother. Of course, this sets the stage for the film to follow in the footsteps of the first, shifting the undercurrent of emotional play from »

'Lips Together, Teeth Apart': Theater Review

29 October 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The synergy between playwrights and actors is well-demonstrated in the Second Stage Theatre revival of Terrence McNally's 1991 comedy-drama Lips Together, Teeth Apart, but not in a good way. McNally wrote the work especially for its original performers — Nathan Lane, Christine Baranski and Anthony Heald, with Swoosie Kurtz replacing an intended Kathy Bates — and that estimable ensemble knocked it out of the park. This current production features a talented cast including America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) and Tracee Chimo, who wowed in the recent off-Broadway hit Bad Jews. But they fail to live up to their illustrious
