PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN | NEW Trailer released! | #MarstonMovie

IMG_9427

Annapurna Pictures has just released the first trailer for PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN! In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. The film is directed by Angela Robinson and stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton.

SYNOPSIS: In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

NEW MUSIC: THE SCRIPT | “Rain” Music Video | #music #thescript

IMG_9420

For those of you who don’t know me personally, I’m a HUGE fan of The Script. I met them at a show here in Miami a few years ago with my friend (Thanks, Keisha!) and they were absolutely incredible. I had already been a fan of their music, but the way they were with their fans made me love them even more . . . not to mention that they’re Irish, which automatically makes them awesome! lol.

I’ve seen them live 3 times now and I’m hoping they make a stop in South Florida again for their next tour. Believe me, seeing them live is so worth it!

Here is the new music video for “Rain” that was released this weekend! I’m kinda digging the dance vibe they have going on here. Lyrically, The Script is always on point, so I don’t mind them experimenting with new sounds like I do with some others haha.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Oscar® winner Charlize Theron explodes into summer in “Atomic Blonde,” a breakneck action-thriller that follows MI6’s most lethal assassin through a ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors.

The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission.

Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

A blistering blend of sleek action, gritty sexuality and dazzling style, Atomic Blonde is directed by David Leitch (John Wick, upcoming Deadpool 2).

Also starring John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones, the film is based on the Oni Press graphic novel series “The Coldest City,” by Antony Johnston & illustrator Sam Hart.

Kurt Johnstad (300) wrote the screenplay.
