Steven Spielberg May Direct A Remake Of ‘West Side Story’

(Skip to 3:21 for the West Side Story news)This is one of those headlines where as I was writing it, I realized that only a handful of movie goers will actually give a sh*t. But I really don’t give a sh*t who gives a sh*t other than the people who give a sh*t about Bernstein and Sondheim’s classic musical West Side Story (a musical which is pretty much unanimously considered one of the greatest of all time [GOAT].) And to have a clip of Steven Spielberg (who is also considered a GOAT) mentioning even just a casual interest in directing a version of West Side Story, well that’s something worth sharing with the handful of movie goers who will care. That’s some GOAT on GOAT action (click that link, I dare you) and there is nothing that makes me more excited than two GOATS going balls deep into each other to make something amazing (probably another GOAT). Kevin Jagernauth shared this exciting news over at Indiewire:Remember those reports in the spring that the director was eyeballing a redo of Robert Wise‘s classic “West Side Story“? Well, it would seem it’s still on the brain.In a recent interview on “Good Morning America” alongside Oprah Winfrey to promote “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the director was asked about “West Side Story,” and he confirmed it was something he was still interested in. “Well you know something, ‘West Side Story’ is one of my favourite Broadway musicals and one of the greatest pieces of musical literature, my goodness, one of the greatest scores and some of the greatest lyrics ever written for a musical so just let me put it this way: it’s on my mind,” he said. And it’s kinda curious in that statement he didn’t once mention the 1961 movie….I wouldn’t focus too much on Spielberg not mentioning the Robert Wise film – I’m certain he’s seen it. And I’m even more certain that he loves it. How could he not? How could anyone not? It’s the bomb! If you are one of those people who’s avoided seeing West Side Story because you’ve only ever seen that sh*tty Gap commercial for khakis, then I implore you to watch the video below. It’ll change your opinion.

Weekend Box Office: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Grosses $93.7 Million Worldwide, Well Above Expectations

ParamountYou guys, I’ve got some crazy news. Some news that could shock you. Are you sitting down? Do you have a tight grip on your pants and/or butts? Okay, now that you’ve been suitably prepared, it turns out, the much-hyped Michael Bay-produced remake of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made lots of money this weekend, even though it was mostly sorta mediocre and no one really liked it (19% on RottenTomatoes, B Cinemascore). Crazy, right? I know. Literally no one could’ve predicted this.Specifically, it earned $65 million domestic (on a $125 million budget). This even though early projections had it coming in as low as $40 to $45 million. But nostalgia is shockingly powerful . The interest in this movie has been through the roof since it was announced, which is fairly baffling to me for something that I thought was kind of dumb even when I was 11. Remember cartoons?! Remember pizza?! Radical, dude! And let’s be honest, no one ever expected it to be any good. It was being produced by Michael Bay and directed the Battle: Los Angeles guy for God’s sake. That kind of resume is the cinematic equivalent of “I’ve been to prison” scrawled on a napkin. Maybe it benefited financially from rock bottom expectations?The film played 61% male, 55% over-25 years old, and 36% Hispanic. It has also earned $93.7m worldwide as it debuted in 19 international markets as well. What was Paramount’s marketing strategy? No Fear. They didn’t respond to critics and pundits decrying Michael Bay as the ruiner of childhoods, the weird new designs, or who was or wasn’t playing Shredder and if the turtles were or were not aliens. [Forbes]Hmm, that sounds plausible enough, but at the same time, what would a “fearful” marketing strategy entail? It’s not like the ads were going to say “we may have blown this one, so use your judgment!” Marketing is marketing, no matter how much the product sucks.Among the other new major releases this week were Into The Storm, which I don’t remember seeing a single ad for, which grossed $18 million domestically on a $50 million budget. About the same opening as the director’s last film, Final Destination 5, which I still can’t believe wasn’t called 5nal Destination. It’s too early to tell if it will make back its $50 million budget (my money’s on no).Then there was The Hundred-Foot Journey aka The Best Exotic Tuscan Marigold Salmon Fishery, aka Travel P**n For Moms, which grossed $11.1 million domestically. Not exactly setting the world on fire, but as BoxOfficeMojo …

Lindsay Lohan Swears She Won’t Miss Any Performances In Her West End Debut

BBCLind­say Lohan is cur­rent­ly in Lon­don, where she’s gear­ing up for a 10-week West End per­for­mance in David Mamet’s Speed-The-Plow, which she’s osten­si­bly hop­ing will reha­bil­i­tate her image. Although rehearsals for the show, which debuts in Sep­tem­ber, haven’t begun yet, Lohan is adamant that she’s not going to screw this one up this time. In a recent inter­view with the BBC’s arts edi­tor Will Gom­pertz, Gom­pertz asks in the most polite, British way pos­si­ble if there was any chance that she wouldn’t be show­ing up to rehearsals and per­for­mances every sin­gle day. She was quick to shoot him down, say­ing, “That’s not in the cards. That’s not going to happen.”“I want to be known for my talents and my work that I create, rather than a tabloid sensation,” she said. “However long it does take, I’m willing to do it. I’m willing to work for it.”“There’s a different standard to it here. It seems more prestigious. It seems a bit more serious and that’s something that I really want to experience.”The thing about Lind­say is that she hon­est­ly doesn’t seem to under­stand why on Earth any­one would be skep­ti­cal of her tal­ent or com­mit­ment. Now, while I’m no actor, it’s my under­stand­ing that live the­ater is the most gru­el­ing under­tak­ing for an actor, while being the sub­ject of a real­i­ty show is prob­a­bly the eas­i­est. So, recall­ing that Lind­say Lohan even man­aged to con­sis­tent­ly flake on her own real­i­ty show, we’re sup­posed to take it as face value that this the­atri­cal per­for­mance shall go flaw­less­ly? Ooookay.Good luck, West End’s Speed-The-Plow pro­duc­ers, you brought this on your­self.Filed under: Web Cul­ture Tagged: Lind­say Lohan, lon­don, SPEED THE PLOW, THE­ATER

Michelle Obama Poses with J.Lo & Gives Great Speech at LULAC

First Lady Michelle Obama gave the keynote address at the 2014 LULAC Con­ven­tion in New York City -- but not until after pos­ing for a quick self­ie with Jen­nifer Lopez."Me and my girl @flotus at #LULAC Nation­al con­ven­tion for the empow­er­ment of Lati­nos. #represent #keynotespeaker #introingthekeynotespeak #dreambig," Lopez, 44, wrote on Insta­gram.J.Lo intro­duced FLO­TUS as the keynote speak­er at the 85th nation­al con­ven­tion for LULAC, the League of Unit­ed Latin Amer­i­can Cit­i­zens.Dur­ing her speech, the First Lady addressed edu­ca­tion and col­lege admis­sions in the Lati­no com­mu­ni­ty. "In the face of so many chal­lenges and obsta­cles, you're still ask­ing the hard questions," she told the audi­ence. "How do we instill in them that hunger for edu­ca­tion?""There are still too many young peo­ple in this coun­try who aren't get­ting the edu­ca­tion they need," she con­tin­ued. "Too many young peo­ple in the Lati­no com­mu­ni­ty just aren't ful­fill­ing their potential."Read more on page 2 >>>Accord­ing to Fox News Lati­no, Michelle Obama launched an edu­ca­tion ini­tia­tive ear­li­er this year called Reach High­er. The ini­tia­tive seeks to get more low-income youth in col­lege.Obama noted in her speech that her par­ents did not attend col­lege. She grew up in a work­ing class home in the South Side of Chica­go, and her father worked as a pump oper­a­tor for the Chica­go Water Depart­ment while her moth­er stayed at home. Her par­ents -- despite their lack of edu­ca­tion -- always encour­aged her to strive for col­lege."We have to reignite that hunger for education," she said. "Par­ents have to be read­ing to their kids from an early age and make sure they go to school every day and do their home­work every night. Our young peo­ple, you have to make edu­ca­tion your num­ber one pri­or­i­ty. If you know some­one who's not plan­ning to go on past high school, I want you to reach out to them."The First Lady will meet with stu­dents, teach­ers, admin­is­tra­tors, and coun­selors across the coun­try as part of the Reach High­er ini­tia­tive. She aims to have the high­est pro­por­tion of col­lege grad­u­ates in the world by 2020 -- and that means get­ting more Lati­no stu­dents to fin­ish their edu­ca­tion.FLO­TUS also spoke about a hot topic in the Lati­no com­mu­ni­ty: the soar­ing num­bers of unac­com­pa­nied minors cross­ing the U.S.-Mex­i­co bor­der. "With a bro­ken immi­gra­tion sys­tem hurt­ing so many of our fam­i­lies and neigh­bors, som …

Amber Valletta Reveals Her Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Amber Val­let­ta has revealed her bat­tle with drugs and alco­hol in a new video."I suf­fer from a dis­ease called addiction," the model-turned-actress told the well­ness web­site MindBodyGreen.com. "I've had it for as long as I can remember."Val­let­ta, 40, says she start­ed look­ing for ways to get high since she was 8 years old because she was "uncom­fort­able being a human being.""I sniffed mark­ers, I sniffed glue, fin­ger­nail pol­ish, any­thing that could give me a buzz," she says.By the time she was 22 and her mod­el­ing career was at its peak, Val­let­ta was abus­ing co***ne and alco­hol."I had a mul­ti­mil­lion [dol­lar] deal and I showed up the first day to shoot this cam­paign high and drunk," she admits. "I didn't care and that's just to show you addic­tion takes you to the worst places."The Okla­homa native says the mod­el­ing indus­try con­tributed to her dis­ease. "I was in a busi­ness that drugs and alco­hol were wide­ly accept­able and they were given to me."But she takes full respon­si­bil­i­ty for her actions. "I am not a victim," she says. "I don't blame any­thing that hap­pened to me that was negative."Val­let­ta sought help at 25 because she "didn't want to die.""I had to be will­ing to lift the veil off the shame and say, 'I'm addict, I can't do this alone, I don't want to do this alone, I don't feel com­fort­able, can you help me?' "After stay­ing sober for 15 years, the model-turned-actress – whose new show Leg­ends pre­mieres on TNT in August – hopes to inspire oth­ers by shar­ing her story."My hope is that some­one, some­where in this room, out of this room will hear some­thing that will help them and per­haps get them out of the shad­ows and the dark­ness of addic­tion and bring them into the light."
