BURDEN | November 1 Limited Release Date Announced + New Stills Released!

Newly formed 101 Studios has announced the release date and new stills for their forthcoming film BURDEN, which opens in theaters for a limited launch on November 1st with a continued rollout through the month of November. BURDEN has been edited down 20 minutes from the film’s premiere at Sundance in 2018. The film is the winner of the 2018 Audience Awards at Sundance and Nantucket Film Festivals, and was written and directed by first-time filmmaker Andrew Heckler.

SYNOPSIS: BURDEN tells the incredible true story of Michael “Mike” Burden (Garrett Hedlund), an ardent young member of the South Carolina Ku Klux Klan who rose to the rank of Grand Dragon – and walked away from all of it with the help of a new love and an unlikely ally, the African American religious leader and social activist Reverend David Kennedy (Forest Whitaker). Mike Burden was raised and indoctrinated into the KKK by Klan leader Tom Griffin (Tom Wilkinson), rising to the ranks of Grand Dragon through his affinity for violence and seemingly set on a lifetime path steeped in racism and bigotry, until he meets and falls in love with a single mother, deeply opposed to the hate group, eventually forcing him to make a choice.  After being cut off and shut out of his Klan family, with nowhere else to turn, Mike begs for help from his mortal enemy, civil rights activist Reverend David Kennedy. Against all odds and wisdom, Reverend Kennedy proves the power and conviction of his faith when he accepts Mike’s disavowal of the Klan and welcomes him into his home and his church. Together, they face down irate, vengeful and violent Klan members and win over Reverend Kennedy’s skeptical parishioners, forming a true bond and forging a path towards redemption and forgiveness.

The film’s cast additionally includes Andrea Riseborough, Tess Harper, and Crystal Fox. The film also stars Usher.

In support of the film, five-time Grammy award winner Chris Stapleton will release an original song for the film self-titled: “Burden.” Stay tuned for details.

Producer Robbie Brenner (DALLAS BUYER’S CLUB): “I could not be more excited for Andrew and I to be joining forces with Studio 101 to distribute BURDEN. This has been a multi decade labor of love, passion and sheer will for us, and it couldn’t be happening at a better time in the world. David Glasser and his team share our passion for the story and understand how timely and important this movie is.”

Director Andrew Heckler: “Even though it was written over twenty years ago, unfortunately, BURDEN is more timely than ever. Now in a time when the world has become so polarized and divided by ethnicity, race and religion, BURDEN can deliver a powerful message of how extremes can join together to overcome and resolve our differences and hatred through love and tolerance. I cannot be more excited to get that message out there to audiences with Studio 101.”

BURDEN opens in theaters for a limited launch on November 1st with a continued rollout through the month of November.

VIANA Releases Music Video For Debut Single “Wine & Roses”

img_9729

New dark pop artist Viana has released a music video for her debut single, “Wine & Roses,” out NOW. Most known as lead vocalist of the recently disbanded funky pop rock band Royal Street, Viana transforms into her own on “Wine & Roses”; it’s fierce, unconventional, and pristine. The music video is a sophisticated, yet sensual, visual – a perfect companion for the sleek track. Although simple, the video’s aesthetic and color palette perfectly align with Viana’s vision on “Wine & Roses”; she has a beautifully developed and seasoned sense of self. A self-described ‘dark alternative-pop’ artist, Viana fashions an eerie, yet riveting sound on “Wine & Roses”. About the track, she states:

Wine & Roses is a song about losing yourself in what used to be. We get hung up on our past, and often times we let it put a negative hold on our future. As we live more and more, we learn more and more, and it shapes us into the person we are meant to be. Even the adverse times in our lives make us who we are in the long run. The song ends with saying “Keep the magic close, if it’s all you know. The wine will always flow.” Meaning keep your passions close to your heart and keep moving, and you’ll get where you need to be. All of the lessons you learn along the way will bring you there. The chorus proclaims, “ I’m stuck with visions of you” meaning that what happened in our past becomes a part of us…we don’t ever forget, but we can move onto better times while carrying the lessons we’ve learned.

Viana has been singing ever since she can remember. She was born in the summer of 1993. Raised on church gospel, classic rock and a touch of jazz , Viana’s vocals have morphed through the years into a sound uniquely hers. A decade of fronting pop-punk bands, starring in local musical productions and dabbling in some moderate witchcraft have been integral in the formation of the ethereal melody-machine that is Viana.

Viana’s sound can best be described as dark alternative-pop. Enchanting beats, flawless vocal runs and syrupy sweet lyrics are enough to wake the dead and get even the saddest bones moving. Her influences include other unique and strong female singer-songwriters such as Maggie Rogers, FKA Twigs, Billie Eilish, Phoebe Bridgers and of course, our lord and savior, Beyoncé. With a style influenced by a combination of being a sucker for a catchy melody, yet still bringing a natural edge brought on by years of fronting rock bands, paired with her giant doe-eyes and freckles, Viana’s presence is one to pay attention to. Her gifts were shared while touring with past bands Sienna and Royal Street, playing to small groups in basements, and to crowds of 2,000+ enthusiastic and captivated show-goers.

Viana’s mission through music is to connect with all people and remember that self expression should be about going with your gut and listening to your own instincts. Growing up in a female fronted band always striving to be the next big thing brings an unnecessary pressure. These days, she creates what she wants and what feels most comfortable for her, and wants to help her listeners do the same. After ten years of collaborative work, Viana’s fierce independence has led to the shedding of her past skin and the incubation of this unapologetically Viana project: new, strange, and no-fucks-given. “Wine & Roses” is available on all digital music platforms NOW.

About Paulina Rubio

There are few stars in the Latin pop scene that have shined as brightly, and for as long, as Paulina Rubio. The Mexican singer, actress, model and entrepreneur has been putting out hits that have taken the world by storm. After a stint with the group Timbiriche, one of the most long-lasting pop phenomena in Mexico, Paulina embarked on her solo career in 1992 releasing “La Chica Dorada.” The title of her debut album became her professional nickname, The Golden Girl, and opened the doors to the US market.

From then on, her popularity grew both in the US and in Latin America, and rocketed when she signed with Universal Music, cementing her international status in the new millennium. “Paulina” (2000) and particularly “Border Girl” (2002) created an extraordinary crossover effect that rippled throughout the whole of the planet. As a global pop icon, Rubio was the top-selling Latin artist during the early stages of the new century, thanks to songs like “Y Yo Sigo Aquí”, “Yo No Soy Esa Mujer” and “The One You Love.” In 2004, “Pau-Latina” saw Paulina return to Spanish and spawning a set of sold hits, “Te Quise Tanto,” “Algo Tienes” and “Dame Otro Tequila,” which ruled the Latin Billboard charts and consolidated her success.

Paulina continued to climb up the ladder of creativity with the release of “Ananda” in 2006. Fueled by hit singles including “Ni Una Sola Palabra,” the album topped the US Latin Pop Chart and was certified 2x Platinum in Spain. “Ananda” picked up Album of the Year at the Latin Billboard Awards and the Spanish edition of GQ Magazine named Rubio as Woman of the Year in 2007.

Increasingly involved in the songwriting and production of her albums, in 2009 the queen of Latin pop returned with “Gran City Pop,” an album that featured trademark hits “Causa y Efecto” and “Ni Rosas Ni Juguetes” and ruled the airwaves in Spain, Mexico and Puerto Rico, taking up residence at the top of the US Latin charts in mid-2009.

On “Brava!” (2011), Rubio skillfully combined songs in English and in Spanish, contributing to Rubio’s amazing portfolio of hits with tracks “Me Gustas Tanto” and the spectacular dance beats of “Heat of the Night” and “All Around the World”.

Over the years, Paulina has continued to release hit records, including songs “Mi Nuevo Vicio” in 2015, a collaboration with Colombian artist Morat, an absolute hit in Spain that was certified 2x Platinum and topped the Promusicae chart, and “Si Te Vas” in 2016. The latter rose to the top of the Latin Billboard Charts, adding to Paulina’s impressive collection of hits.

Over the course of 2019, Paulina released the deluxe version of her long-awaited latest studio album “Deseo,” the first to feature new songs since “Brava!” First single “Desire (Me Tienes Loquita),” featuring her old friend Nacho, was an incredibly appealing and totally contemporary song, with a catchy chorus and solid urban vibes, marking the awaited return of the diva of Latin pop. “Suave y Sutil” followed as a second single, leading up to the release of new single “Ya No Me Engañas.”

TROLLS WORLD TOUR | Character Posters Revealed | In Theaters Next April

It’s #TimeToRock!

This morning, Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake, along with J Balvin and Gustavo Dudamel, debuted their character posters for DreamWorks Animation’s TROLLS WORLD TOUR.

#TrollsWorldTour is in theaters next April.

Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake return in an all-star sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s 2016 musical hit: Trolls World Tour. In an adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) discover that they are but one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder.

A member of hard-rock royalty, Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), aided by her father King Thrash (Ozzy Osbourne), wants to destroy all other kinds of music to let rock reign supreme. With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with their friends — Biggie (James Corden), Chenille (Caroline Hjelt), Satin (Aino Jawo), Cooper (Ron Funches) and Guy Diamond (Kunal Nayyar) — set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony against Barb, who’s looking to upstage them all.

Cast as members of the different musical tribes is one the largest, and most acclaimed, groups of musical talent ever assembled for an animated film. From the land of Funk are Mary J. Blige, George Clinton and Anderson .Paak. Representing Country is Kelly Clarkson as Delta Dawn, with Sam Rockwell as Hickory and Flula Borg as Dickory. J Balvin brings Reggaeton, while Ester Dean adds to the Pop tribe. Anthony Ramos brings the beat in Techno and Jamie Dornan covers smooth jazz. World-renowned conductor and violinist Gustavo Dudamel appears as Trollzart and Charlyne Yi as Pennywhistle from the land of Classical. And Kenan Thompson raps as a hip-hop newborn Troll named Tiny Diamond.

Trolls World Tour is directed by Walt Dohrn, who served as co-director on Trolls, and is produced by returning producer Gina Shay. The film is co-directed by David P. Smith and co-produced by Kelly Cooney Cilella, both of whom worked on the first Trolls. Trolls World Tour will also feature original music by Justin Timberlake, who earned an Oscar® nomination for his song for 2016’s Trolls, “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” and a score by Theodore Shapiro (2016’s Ghostbusters, The Devil Wears Prada).
