Alfre Woodard is…Juanita.
Exciting news below…
Disney seeks to ease worries that the ever-talented Will Smith won’t be able to live up to the incomparably big shoes of late funnyman Robin Williams by unveiling the first look at the former as ‘Genie’ in the forthcoming live action remake of ‘Aladdin.’
The first look earned jeers from viewers as it showed the rapper/actor in human form and not blue as the character is depicted in the animated version. Now, we get our first real peek at the finished product!
With Mena Massoud as ‘Aladdin,’ Naomi Scott as ‘Jasmin,’ Marwan Kenzari as ‘Jafar,’ Navid Negahban as ‘Sultan,’ and many more, look inside for the newest trailer for the film ahead of its May 24th premiere.
When headlines swirled just a month ago indicating 10 women had come forward to accuse ‘Extra’ host A.J. Calloway of sexual misconduct (as we reported here), the show’s parent company – Warner Bros. – stated they ‘no plans’ on investigating. Since then, in light of pressure from external sources and reportedly newfound evidence, they’ve changed their tune.
The result? Calloway has been suspended. Details inside:
Taraji P. Henson is earning rave reviews for her starring role in ‘What Men Want’ – a flick she also co-produced.
A contemporary take on Mel Gibson‘s 2000 original, this incarnation sees Henson star as a female sports agent who’s fed up after consistently being frozen out by her male coworkers. She suddenly gains the power to hear men’s thoughts and she uses it shift the pendulum of power to her advantage as she races to sign the NBA’s next big superstar.
That Grape Juice was on hand at the film’s Los Angeles premiere and caught up with Henson, Kelly Rowland, Tamala Jones, Will Packer, Kim Whitley, and more – all of who opened up about the movie everyone is talking about. Check out what they had to say above.
‘What Men Want’ debuted in US theaters today. We’ll be watching. Will you?
Ahead of its premiere in April, the short clip shows the main character staring at herself in a wedding dress – a feat that leads longtime viewers to believe she’ll finally see an end to her rollercoaster of romantic turmoil.
Will she finally get to that happy ending she’s so desperately longed for?
Netflix’s new series ‘Siempre Bruja‘ has been stunned by an electric wave of bad reviews by the very audience the platform had hoped would support the series.
Why the show, which is about an enslaved African girl and her “magical” adventures, has tanked.
There is nothing romantic and interesting about an enslaved person and their owner. 🙅🏽♀️
