Pitch Perfect 3: The Barden Bellas Return

It's time to sing. Universal Pictures has released the first official trailer for Pitch Perfect 3, the film that saw the protagonists Barden Bellas in previous two rounds. The saga, now in its third chapter will review the main characters played by Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Hailee Steinfeld and Elizabeth Banks.

The latter, who recently raised a fuss against the Steven Spielberg film Giant, in Pitch Perfect 2 has also held the position of director. But for this third round ceded the honor to Trish Sie (Step it Up: All In), limiting herself to be not only an actress but also a producer of the film.

A new addition to the cast for this third appointment will be John Lithgow (The Twilight Zone) and Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black).

Pitch Perfect 1 arrived in theaters in 2012 and grossed 115.3 million dollars worldwide, producing a soundtrack of great success with several singles including Cups sung by Anna Kendrick. Riding the wave of success, Universal Pictures has decided to continue with the sequel.

Pitch Perfect 2 even surpassed the expectations of the first and grossed 287.5 million worldwide. The third round in the trailer is prophetically called The farewell tour, so we understand that (maybe) it will be the last.

The graduates had left victorious two years ago, but in the Pitch Perfect 3, Barden Bellas are now officially adults. Finding space for music in their lives seems a tall order until they choose to invest their talents in a new adventure armed with suitcases and good will. The Bellas leave to join the USO tour in Europe. It would not be a real Pitch Perfect without a little healthy singing competition, right?

Among the stars confirmed is Hailee Steinfeld, who is also in talks to be the protagonist of the spin-off of Bumblebee in the Transformers saga.

Pitch Perfect 3 will hit theaters on December 22, 2017.

The Originals: Season 4 Finale and Season 5 Spoilers

This article deals specifically with issues related to the season finale of The Originals 4. And also the beginning of the Season 5 of the CW weblog show. The Originals Season 4 finale comes with a surprise from The Vampire Diaries. It is both touching and beautiful. Bonds are sealed even more and there are others which are broken. There are tears of joy and sorrow. There are emotions that culminate with the intense season finale that is full of pathos.

Not only that, the last episode suggests possible developments in The Originals Season 5. At the end of the fourth season of The Originals series, we see the preparation for another leap in time.

First, we receive Alaric from The Vampire Diaries. Michael Narducci, executive of the show, reveals that it is a pleasure to get back Matt Davis to film the scene. Hope (Summer Fontana) is at the school for children with special qualities with Alaric and Caroline in Mystic Falls.

Klaus offers a large sum of money to the school. Probably, the little Mikaelson will not have to pay the fees now. This is perhaps connected with the time jump in the fifth season. In season 5 we see Hope and a teenage crush on a vampire named Roman.

Elijah asks Vincent to forget the past and begin a new life as a musician. While the enemy of the season was partially defeated, we are sure that the fifth season of The Originals is very different. And perhaps with a dash of The Vampire Diaries.

Will Hope Mikaelson find love in The Originals Season 5?

The daughter of Klaus has changed when we again meet her after the time jump of Season 4. In the new episodes of Season 5 of The Originals, Hope falls in love with a vampire named Roman. He has an evil charm. They discover that they have much in common because both of them come from dysfunctional families. And this unites them.

The rumor came from sources close to the production of the series. They revealed that Hope might be the focus of the new spinoff of The Originals. Hope is a grown up now. In the 5th season of The Originals, Hope is in the last years of her adolescence. There is also a possibility of seeing adulthood.

Hope Mikaelson can be the star of a new TV series of The Vampire Diaries. Although, both The CW and Warner Bros. TV network refused to comment. In the past, Julie Plec revealed that there are other TV series that arises from the universe of The Vampire Diaries. She was commenting on the famous letter to Caroline in the finale of the series The Vampire Diaries.

Will Caroline and Klaus reunite in the new television series spinoff of The Originals?

In the finale of The Vampire Diaries, we found the clue to the future of Caroline and Klaus. In the last moments of the episode, we discover that Caroline received a generous donation from Klaus. And a letter that stated, please accept this contribution for your virtuous cause. I look forward to personally thank you, one day. No matter how long it takes. Yours, Klaus.

Furthermore, Hope Mikaelson ends up in Mystic Falls to attend the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted. And it's not the first time that we talk about this possibility. Consequently, this news confirms the subject of a new series set in the world of The Vampire Diaries. Hence, there is also the return of Caroline Forbes (Candice King). She is destined to appear alongside Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davies).

The idea seems just that. We saw a snippet of what looks like an announcement of the production looking for a new actress for the part of Hope in The Originals. It is stated that the role of Hope for the series of The Originals is available for those who wish to do some auditions.

Jab Harry Met Sejal Mini Trail 1

Jab Harry Met Sejal poster images

Imtiaz Ali revealed excerpts from his latest creation Jab Harry Met Sejal that brings together Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma for the third time on the screen. And instead of unveiling the trailer immediately, the producers decided to deliver what they call the mini trail. Overall these are small teasers just like the chapters unveiled for Dear Zindagi.

Shahrukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali were on the television set of the channel broadcasting the cricket match to unveil two excerpts of a mini trail and a musical extract. A stroke of marketing genius when we know the devouring passion of the Indian public for cricket and is a great way to captivate the attention of a huge part of the public. But the real challenge was to convince all these beautiful people who would wait in front of the television screen that King Khan shows us more. So here is the very first promotional extract of Jab Harry Met Sejal:

And the result seems to be up to expectations! After experimenting with a gangster role in Raees and a tricky dual role in FAN, Shahrukh Khan is back in a more familiar territory, reminding us in passing why he is the King of Romance. Especially since his character is not limited to the nice little romantic hero since according to the few images and dialogues.

SRK would return to his role of the lover that marked some of his greatest romantic classics. The dialogues work perfectly, the alchemy between the couple is once again perfectly effective and the two characters seem very well written. This is the great strength of the cinema of Imtiaz Ali, he writes singular and memorable characters. So even in just 30 seconds, we can guess that this duo will not be an umpteenth transparent duo of romantic comedy.

Shahrukh Khan captivates the eye with his presence on screen and his talent as an actor, but Anushka Sharma is not outdone either and shines by her natural play. An uncommon Shahrukh Khan and Anushka in search of freedom and a talented filmmaker to lead the whole, what more could you ask for! It will now be necessary to wait for the next mini trail, knowing that the complete trailer will be unveiled with Tubelight.

As for the musical excerpt unveiled on television, it has not yet been put online. We can see some snippets of videos on social networks but the quality is not optimal. Here too, we will have to wait for a little! It is a romantic song festive in the pure tradition of the light pieces that one finds in Imtiaz Ali.

Shot under the provisional title The Ring, the title was the subject of many rumors, including Rehnuma. And in order to play with the suspense till the end, the title was unveiled in two stages. A double play on words as it refers to Jab We Met, one of the biggest hits of the director Imtiaz Ali, and to the American film When Harry Met Sally. The producers favored a title being partly Hindi, a decision that seems logical because the public of single screens tends to hesitate in front of English titles.

So all this is beautiful, and the title is both surprising and rather clever, but what about the posters? Well, one discovers luminous, playful and festive posters. On one side Shahrukh Khan dance with a colorful background and on the other hand, Anushka Sharma illuminates the poster. The couple seems to work once again wonderfully and this third film together will certainly delight the fans.

At the top of the two posters is the map of Europe with a point that stops on different destinations with Poland for the first and the Netherlands for the second. Remember that this film should be partly a road movie since Shahrukh Khan will play the role of a tour guide. We know the love of Imtiaz Ali for the thematic journey (initiation) with Jab We Met, Rockstar, Highway or Tamasha who approached this notion.

While his last three films claim to be more independent in nature, aiming to destabilize the average spectator in certain aspects, we must see with this movie a return of Imtiaz Ali towards a more public and commercial cinema in the footsteps of his Jab We Met.

47 Meters Down: Mandy Moore Faces a Monstrous Shark

47 Meters Down images

Two sisters Lisa and Kate, go on vacation in Mexico. Lisa is still in grief since her breakup with her boyfriend Stuart. The young women meet two young Mexicans who advise them to try the Shark Diving, that is to say, the cage diving with the sharks around.

Kate, a natural adventurer, convinces Lisa to accompany her for this thrilling experience that could change her ideas.The two young women then meet Taylor, a sailor who makes tourists take advantage of the shark diving in a clandestine way. The two young women enter the cage. Two large white sharks, about 6 meters long, then prowl around the cage. But an accident happens! The loose cable and cage share collapse to 47 meters deep.

Lisa and Kate find themselves alone in the dark without radio contact, with limited reserves of oxygen. The risk of a decompression accident prevents them from returning to the surface quickly. Now, outside the cage in the shadows, sharks are always on the lookout! 47 Meters Down is therefore is in keeping with the logic of the Shark Survival and in the line of The Reef. Just like Instinct of Survival.

We cannot repeat it enough, but Steven Spielberg's Teeth of the Sea has influenced the seventh art and more particularly the domain of Horror, generating the film with killer sharks. A genre that got very quickly out of breath literally sinking into the nanar with time. But in 2011, the cards were redistributed thanks to the release of Andrew Traucki's The Reef, which told the story of shipwrecked sharks. A new breath for the shark movie that revived by taking the paces of a survival.

Subsequently, other directors threw themselves on the vein. In 2016, we received the Instinct of Survival, which took up the aspect of shark survival, without bringing anything. We were falling into the reed of The Reef and there was nothing new on the horizon. But this year has also released another film of the same kind. This film was earlier titled In the Deep that is now known as 47 Meters Down, directed by Johannes Roberts, a regular of horror films.

This is again a shark survival movie which apparently did not seem to be able to bring any more, but which finally turns out to be quite a pleasant surprise. So much so that some have compared it to Gravity. However, as I said above, one could consider, in all proportions, that 47 Meters Down is to shark film what Gravity was to Science Fiction.

In fact, what makes the difference in 47 Meters Down is firstly the ambiance. From Open Water to Instinct of Survival, the shark survival genre always took place on the surface. Here, the film takes us to a depth of 47 meters. It thus renewed the aesthetics of the genre and abandons the maritime blue for an abyssal and impressive black surroundings.

The result is really oppressive. Our two young heroines are forced to leave the cage to go up to 40 meters in order to come into radio contact with the surface. They find themselves then plunged in a dark universe, not being able to distinguish what is a few meters in front of them. What is frightening in this film is not what you see, but what you do not see.

47 Meters Down pushes this concept to its climax. However, it does not fall into the Open Water trap. Unlike the latter, our service sharks will here be largely visible during the highlights. It works wonders and even while being on the alert, the viewer will automatically let himself be surprised.

47 Meters Down is a very black film, which is unusual for a shark movie. Johannes Roberts manages to create a climate of stress and total oppression. That's why I do not really like the official poster that does not exploit this aspect confining itself to the banality, where the original wanted more in the tonality of the work. The film also relies heavily on realism. If you are a diving enthusiast, you will find that 47 Meters Down is fairly accurate in what it shows. Notably on the effects that deep dives can have.

Numerous details come to credibilize the film. But above all, they shape the intrigue. As for the actors, the two heroines are interpreted by Mandy Moore and Claire Holt. The two actresses do pretty well without bursting the screen. Matthew Modine will also be welcomed as Taylor, the captain of the boat.

But our stars are also sharks. On this point, the level of perfection of the Survival Instinct is clearly not attained. However, our service sharks are pretty well made, large enough even to be credible. However, one can reproach 47 Meters Down its intro that draws a little in length by staging relations that are rather clich├ęs with stories of rupture frankly misplaced. That said, one can also appreciate this aspect in the sense that the continuation of the plot takes a total counterpart.

The film also benefits from a very interesting twist, which the attentive spectator will be able to anticipate, but that surprised me well. In terms of music, it is good and there will also be blood and violent scenes, and the genre obliges.

In the end, 47 Meters Down succeeds. One would lie by saying that the film renews the genre, but it brings its stone to the edifice. Johannes Roberts manages to create a film with a particular atmosphere that is truly impressive. To me, it is one of the best shark movies ever made.

Lightning McQueen is Back in Cars 3

Cars 3 images wallpaper

As already announced in the past few months, on June 17 arrive in theaters a new feature film from Pixar titled Cars 3. But before we see back in action Lightning McQueen, the talking car with a little rust problems, the spectators as usual will see an animated short, or Lou.

At this time it was the widespread teaser trailer and as we see Lou is the name derived from the missing letters from the words Lost and Found. The protagonist, in fact, is a box of lost items at a primary school which, in all probability, comes alive to defend young students from the actions of a malicious bully. The short film director Dave Mullin addressed the issue of bullying based on firsthand experiences.

The tradition of animated shorts before feature films is well established within Pixar, which uses it to test new techniques but also to launch new directors and artists. The short last year, Piper, before widespread Finding Dory, was awarded the Oscar in 2017. Yesterday it was announced that instead, before the Christmas will be released one titled Coco, the short film that will screen Olaf's Frozen Adventure.

We have to spend the summer, but on June 17 we will finally see if the old Lightning McQueen is still able to win a race, although it has to face younger and faster opponents.

The story is well known. Lightning won a lot and is much loved by the public, but as time passes for everyone and so here it has to deal with the most technologically advanced and consequently faster adversaries of it. Things are even worse after a terrible accident, but it turns out to be an opportunity to share as the new training, new and old friends and a last chance to assert itself.

Sometimes it is right to stop and analyze the market three hundred and sixty degrees, and what emerges looking with a little attention in this generation of consoles is that, unlike the one that preceded it, the children's games are gradually disappearing.

Activision has virtually abandoned games licensed from movies and cartoons, but there were also many other houses who were responsible for producing entertainment for a very young audience have stopped almost completely to offer this, which in the past was extremely effective from this point of view.

Looking at the catalog at our disposal, there are few titles that can be played along with their babies, and we turn to the infinite series of LEGO games under license to save the situation. Is the market is no longer profitable for this type of games? Or perhaps more simply, is there no more interest in attracting an audience so young to the home console?

The buzz is interesting and would certainly expand but what interests us today is that to break these patterns Warner Bros is back with the license of Cars 3 and is determined to exploit the commercial trailer of the film to place also the official video game on the shelves. We decided to take an early look at the production to see if and how much value there is hidden behind this handful of dusty polygons.

The first interesting thing to say about this Cars 3 is that, fortunately, is not the common riciclone of events seen in the film. Of course, we are still talking of a racing game where you have to finish first or score the most points that is the essential thing, but the story will be later than that of the film, giving a sense of continuity that always will be appreciated.

The development was entrusted to Warner Bros. Games, together with the talented minds that a few years ago had given birth to Disney Infinity and indeed of substance this title has a lot more than they would suggest a first glimpse. Unfortunately, the technical sector did not feel particularly when cured, at least to the slopes, even if the models of the cars, whether precisely from the film, they reproduce in every detail the darlings of the younger ones.

There are about twenty characters available, including of course stand Lightning McQueen, Mater and Jackson Storm and, although the performance should be very different, the race statistics will be the same for everyone, so that we can choose to taste and not for effectiveness. A smart decision to meet the target audience but strania once on track when racing alongside cars from Daytona find school buses and trucks.

It matters little, anyway. Cars 3 proved to be a good title, pad in hand, one of those games that does not want to point to break through the roof excellence but do not skimp, however a mechanical Most little than usual, however, coming up with a good number of modes designed to hold high the overall longevity of the title.

In addition to classic sprint races there will indeed be competitions of acrobatics but also battles where to use missiles and various weaponry to blow up the highest number of vehicles in a time limit. You can not miss even a split screen finally for a content package really nice hearty.

Even the gameplay is not as straightforward as one would expect, but attempts to offer in its own way an alternative vision of Mario Kart, taking advantage of some elements of the arcade racing game par excellence (such as random bonuses to collect on the track) and adding us also some completely new ideas. From always keep under control there will then be a turbo bar, which will be recharged driving in reverse, putting on the opponent's wake or performing acrobatic jumps, and which then can be used to lengthen the distances from trackers or exploit one of the numerous proposals shortcuts from paths.

The interesting thing is that to perform any of these tricks to charge your turbo will make you lose speed, requiring a little 'strategy, therefore, to understand when you show off your driving skills and when to seek simply to hold a clean line to finish first at the finish. A not entirely convincing, unfortunately, it is the physics of the cars and bumps, really sketchy, and a visual impact that, as we said initially, limps noticeably, partly because of color choices not exactly spot on.

There is also to be considered from this point of view, Cars 3: In the race for victory was thought to be a cross-generation title and get to the carpet on virtually all existing consoles, including the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch. To get their hands on, however we will have to wait until next September 14, when also will release the film. If you have a child who is lover of cars and speed and Disney characters, think well as the production seems to have all the credentials to be able to entertain.

First poster of Pari

Pari anushka images poster wallpaper

After the social and violent thriller with NH10 and the romantic fantasy comedy with Phillauri, what does Anushka Sharma reserve for her third production? Entitled Pari, the film will be directed by the debutant Prosit Roy. And if no information was given about the genre or the history of the film, a first poster has just been unveiled to announce the beginning of the shoot.

And with such a poster it would seem that the actress and producer return to a much darker genre! The marked skin and face, and eyes with surprising colors, all for a poster are at once sober and extremely powerful. A break in glam that recalls the second part of NH10 and which remains one of the actress's most memorable roles in terms of intensity and quality of acting.

Pari could well fall under the psychological thriller, or even why not the horror genre. Anushka Sharma will produce this film under her Clean Slate Films banner with the support of KriArj Entertainment. As for casting, we will also find the actor Bengali actor Parambrata Chatterjee, seen in Kahaani. It is, therefore, a new risk-taking for Anushka and Pari seems to confirm that she intends to promote more independent cinema as a producer.

No release date has been set yet, but it is likely that we will have to wait until next year to see the project. In the meantime, Anushka Sharma will be found in Jab Harry Met Sejal in August with Shahrukh Khan.

Daddy Official Trailer

Daddy movie arjun images poster

Daddy is an Indian style gangster movie. After playing the role of a policeman in Kahaani 2 last December, Arjun Rampal returns on the big screen with an ambitious role. The actor interprets the gangster become politician Arun Gawli in a biopic named Daddy. Gawli is an intriguing and fascinating character who has constantly created the debate from his early days in a neighborhood gang to his rise to the top of the Indian mafia until his conversion to politics.

His nickname Daddy says a lot about the dilemma around the character. Considered a corrupt and merciless criminal by some, he was nicknamed Daddy, the father of the people and compared to a modern Robinhood by the disadvantaged classes. It is of this controversial figure that the director Ashim Ahluwalia decided to base his third feature film.

The filmmaker to whom we owe the absolute masterpiece Miss Lovely released in 2012 chose to stage Arjun Rampal in the lead role, with the actress of South, Aishwarya Rajesh in the role of Asha Gawli as well as Rutvij Patel in an important role. Here's the trailer:

From the first images, we find the leg of filmmaker Ashim Ahluwalia with his oppressive photography, his organic image that emphasizes the characters in a carnal way (each mark on the body, each drop of perspiration seems highlighted). A powerful and visually exciting realization that gives the cinema of Ahluwalia all its interest. To this is added an Arjun Rampal which seems simply excellent in its role, playing to perfection the dichotomy of the character.

As for the scenario, the epic of a modern gangster does not seem very original and the genre is so popular in India that it seems difficult to bring anything radically new. However, Daddy looks like a biopic apart. Far from the glamorized gangsters like in Raees or Sarkar, the film arises with a rough and violent style that seems perfectly suitable for the purpose.

Far from masala, Daddy seems to be a rough film whose viewing experience will spare neither the viewer nor its characters. So it is a success for this trailer that manages to attract interest around the project. With its release scheduled for July 21, we are not sure if Daddy can manage to win in the middle of the summer blockbusters. However, any self-respecting moviegoer can only be intrigued by a new film by Ashim Ahluwalia.
