Jon M. Chu gets real on Hollywood rallying after 'Jem' and Mark Ruffalo's vomit

10 June 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Four Horseman are set to ride back into theaters this weekend as the magic-based caper Now You See Me 2 opens wide. Here, director Jon M. Chu is refreshingly honest, funny, and thoughtful with us about what it takes to make it as a working director in Hollywood, recovering after the disappointment of Jem and the Holograms, the temptation of making Harry Potter jokes when you have Daniel Radcliffe in a movie about magic, and Mark Ruffalo's vomit. Take a look in the player above or below and chat with us here or on Twitter. Jon: @JonMChu Roth: @RothCornet »

'Now You See Me 2' Director Jon M. Chu Explains How They Cast Woody Harrelson's Brother

7 June 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

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...

Kesha, Country Music Pair Book Nashville Guest Spots

12 March 2016 7:25 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sci-Fi Romance Passengers Recruits Aurora Perrineau

17 February 2016 8:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Casting for Morten Tyldum’s tragic sci-fi romance Passengers is heating up today, after The Hollywood Reporter learned that Aurora Perrineau has joined the ensemble.

Best known for roles in the disastrous Jem and the Holograms movie and, soon, the Kristen Stewart-fronted dystopian love story Equals, Perrineau will star opposite Chris Pratt, Jennifer LawrenceMichael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne in Sony’s futuristic tale.

Based on a script produced by Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts, Passengers revolves around a space vessel travelling to a distant new planet. Hunkering down for the long journey, its thousand-strong crew are placed in cryogenic sleep to negate the affects of the long haul – and time itself – though when one sleep pod malfunctions, Chris Pratt’s character is crudely woken up 90 years ahead of schedule, leading him to wake up another passenger: Jennifer Lawrence.

Brash, stupid and selfish, Pratt and Lawrence are left in the »

How to Be Single movie review: more like how not to be single

14 February 2016 7:48 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hollywood does not know how to make a movie about women that isn’t about the pursuit of romance. Even when women say they don’t want romance, they’re lying. I’m “biast” (pro): hungry for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): not generally a fan of romantic comedies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Do you want to know how to be single? Do you need to know how to be single? I figure everyone in the world knows how to be single, because that’s how we all start out, but if you need some tips, these are the ones How to Be Single has for you:

= Be embarrassed to be unmarried. Be miserable constantly.

= Have no hobbies or friends that aren’t devoted to getting you paired off.

= Feel as if you must justify your singleness to complete strangers.

= If you are a woman, »

Jem and the Holograms Review

11 February 2016 1:51 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

  While we here in Britain are scrutinising over the need to bring Dad’s Army to the silver screen, there will be many others pondering quite why the 1980s animated TV series Jem is being rewarded with a big screen endeavour. Though screenwriter Ryan Landels and director Jon M. Chu can be commended for at

Blumhouse to Produce Swing Dance Documentary 'Alive and Kicking'

27 January 2016 9:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Jason Blum's 5 Tips for Low-Budget Filmmaking Success Blumhouse Productions has found its new project in the documentary "Alive and Kicking," an insider's view of modern swing dance from director Susan Glatzer. The film follows a group of people who are inspired by dancing to mix up their own lives. The powerhouse production company, founded by Jason Blum, will produce and co-finance the documentary, as well as work with Glatzer to find distribution.   Blumhouse is known for specializing in low-budget horror, helming popular hits like "The Purge" and "Paranormal Activity." However, in the past couple years the company has been working hard to branch out, finding both great success in the Oscar-winning "Whiplash" and a box office disaster with the failed "Jem and the Holograms" feature adaptation. With this latest production deal, the company is keeping its toes in the non-fiction world after producing "How »

Jem and the Holograms movie review: rock ’n’ roll fantasy

20 January 2016 7:22 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Utterly implausible on every level, and ultimately rather insulting: a bit of glitter and lots of hugs are the sum total of its “girl power.” I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not seen the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, shoot. I really wanted to like this flick. Not that I have any investment in the 1980s cartoon it’s based on: I’ve never even seen it, and honestly, I don’t even remember it. But this is a movie about a bunch of young women — women who are very different from one another and interested in different sorts of things, and some of them are even not white! — being cool and having fun and forming a band and making music. Alas, Jem and the Holograms is utterly implausible on every level, »
