IMG_3626In 2019, Super Spy Goes Super Fly. 

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer, official poster and character posters for their upcoming film SPIES IN DISGUISE, an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage starring Will Smith and Tom Holland.

Audi brings futuristic design and mobility to the big screen for the first time with the Audi RSQ e-tron, a fictional, virtual performance concept car created for 20th Century Fox’s animated film SPIES IN DISGUISE. The full-battery electric model, created by Audi Design in cooperation with Blue Sky Studios, combines automated driving with artificial intelligence and transformational technology. The RSQ e-tron will be driven by super-spy Lance Sterling, voiced by Will Smith, and appears in the film’s trailer live today.

SYNOPSIS: Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is… not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril. SPIES IN DISGUISE is an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage.

X AMBASSADORS Announce UK and European Headline Tour | @xambassadors #music

ANNOUNCE UK AND EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR

BRAND NEW ALBUM DUE SPRING 2018   ‘AHEAD OF MYSELF’ THE SINGLE – WATCH VIDEO HERE

FEATURING ON THE SMASH HIT SINGLE ‘HOME’ WITH MACHINE GUN KELLY & BEBE REXHA    

FEATURING ON EMINEM’S NEW ALBUM ‘REVIVAL’

Multi-platinum selling three-piece X Ambassadors have announced their UK and European headline tour in March 2018. The nine-date run will be kicking off at London’s Electric Brixton on March 19th.

The tour comes ahead of their eagerly anticipated new album, co-written with American multi-platinum selling songwriter, producer and musician Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Chainsmokers) and due for release in Spring 2018.

The album’s lead single ‘Ahead Of Myself’ was released this summer to great acclaim, and the official video has clocked up over 3 million views on YouTube. The band also sold out their headline show at London’s ULU, and pulled in one of the biggest crowds on the Radio 1 stage at Reading and Leeds Festival.

2015 saw the launch of the US trio onto the music scene across the globe. Their debut album VHS spawned the breakthrough platinum selling #1 Alternative radio track ‘Renegades’ and hits ‘Unsteady’ and ‘Jungle’ and debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. VHS has since been gold certified and saw the band embark on a nearly two-year touring odyssey, winning over fans around the world.

X Ambassadors are currently tearing up the US charts with ‘Home’ a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and Bebe Rexha, which features on the soundtrack to the new Will Smith Netflix movie ‘Bright’. The track currently holds the #3 spot on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits – with over 18 million streams – and is at #10 on US iTunes.

The band also feature on the track ‘Bad Husband’ on Eminem’s brand-new album Revival which will be released this Friday (Dec 15th).

They have collaborated with a number of prolific artists such as Tom Morello on the track ‘Collider’, Elle King, A$AP Ferg, Wiz Khalifa, Eminem and labelmates Imagine Dragons and have earlier this year released music for the trailer for the upcoming Tom Cruise film American Made, Transformers: The Last Knight, and the inspirational track ‘Hoping’, which came about following the US presidential election and saw proceeds got to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is fighting Donald Trump’s immigration ban.

SPIES IN DISGUISE Starring Will Smith & Tom Holland

Fox Animation, Chernin Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios have announced the voice casting for their upcoming animated film SPIES IN DISGUISE.

SPIES IN DISGUISE is a buddy comedy set in the high octane globe-trotting world of international espionage. Will Smith (Men in Black) voices Lance Sterling, the world’s most awesome spy. Cool, charming and super-skilled, saving the world is his occupation. And nobody does it better.

Almost the exact opposite of Lance is Walter, voiced by Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming). Walter is a great mind but perhaps not a great socializer. What he lacks in social skills though, he makes up for in smarts and invention: Walter is the scientific genius who invents the gadgets Lance uses on his missions.

But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril.

Directed by Nick Bruno & Troy Quane, SPIES IN DISGUISE is a Fox Animation production, with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment. The project is based on Pigeon: Impossible, an original animated short film by Lucas Martell.

Movie Review: COLLATERAL BEAUTY

IMG_8048

Hey, movie lovers!

I know I’m late to the game on this one, but I watched it last night with my niece and just had to post about it. To be quite honest, I’m surprised it has a 12% on Rotten Tomatoes! I can see how some people might not enjoy it as much as I did, but I wonder if the people who didn’t like it have experienced loss in their lives. From personal experience, I know how death can create these questions in your mind about love, time and death so the meaning behind the movie really hit me in the heart. My niece just loves any movie that can make her cry for some reason (teenagers!), but she loves this one!

SYNOPSIS: Retreating from life after a tragedy, a man questions the universe by writing to Love, Time and Death. Receiving unexpected answers, he begins to see how these things interlock and how even loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty. 

Let me start by saying that Will Smith kills it in this movie. We all know he’s a great actor, but he hasn’t always chosen the best roles in his career. In this one though, he plays the role of a grieving father so perfectly that you can actually feel his pain. The entire cast does a great job, in my opinion. I found myself getting angry at his friends for scheming behind his back, then I felt sympathy for them because Howard’s grief has affected their lives as well. I think I felt every emotion imaginable while watching this movie and, for me, that’s a sign of a good one.

Every twist and turn in this movie was great and it’s not until the credits roll that everything sort of hits you all at once.

Usually when I see a new movie in the theater, or rent one on On Demand, I try to judge it based on whether or not I would actually buy it or possibly catch it again down the road when it’s streaming online. I rented this one last night and I would definitely buy it. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s one to at least check out. So grab a box of tissues and try to put yourself in this man’s shoes for about 2 hours.

If you forgot what this movie was about, check out the trailer below and if you decide to watch it, let me know what you thought!

 

@Thisfunktional Movie Review: COLLATERAL BEAUTY

IMG_8048

 

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Despite being a story around Will Smith’s character, Edward Norton steals “Collateral Beauty” with a charismatic and honest performance.

Howard, played by Smith, is mourning the loss of his daughter by writing letters to three abstractions, time, love and death.

Smith is a fantastic actor who portrays an emotional character with so much grief. He is dramatic and can pull the emotions out of anyone who has dealt with loss.

When his three business associates – Whit, played by Norton, Claire, played by Kate Winslet, and Simon, played by Michael Peña – decide to hire to actors – Brigitte, played by Helen Mirren, Amy, Played by Keira Knightley, and Raffi, played by Jacob Latimore – to play Death, Love and Time and to go to Howard and answer his letters.

Norton is just fantastic playing a humorous, yet emotional business man dealing with life after divorce and having a daughter that dislikes him because of it. He grabs hold of the audience’s attention and steals the spotlight from Smith.

Knightley is brilliant in her role and matches with Norton having several scenes throughout the movie which stand out. Her emotion feels true and can lead the audience to sympathize with her.

Winslet is great, for what is seen of her story. There’s not much the audience can grab on to about her character and leaves the story of her character lacking.

Peña is convincing as his character, but much like Winslet is not really seen as much and does not give enough of his back story to let audiences connect with his character.

Mirren is fantastic as an actress and as Death. She is one of the positive parts of the movie which audiences will enjoy.

Latimore embodies the youthfulness of his character well and gives some aggressiveness to his portrayal of time. He delivers his lines with such ease that audiences can lose themselves into his story and have it flow out like natural speech.

The entire story is difficult to sum up, but its a great story for the holiday season.

I give this drama a 3 out of 5 Popcorns. Although it has great parts to the story and the complexity is refreshing, it targets an audience which has dealt with major loss. The movie fells much like a stage production and yet much of the actual story feels left out. The overall story of Howard can get drowned out by the amazing acting from the supporting cast. The resolution seems to come out so quickly and runs long to where more is explained than what feels needed.

“Collateral Beauty” is now in theaters.
