In Case You Wanted to See Mary Poppins but Starring Yondu

Just in case you wanted to see what Mary Poppins would really be like starring Yondu, the clip below might give you a pretty good idea. The blue-skinned alien would no doubt be a terror for the Banks’ at first but he could have been a lot of fun eventually, in a very destructive and somewhat disruptive sort of way. The one line in Guardian’s of the Galaxy vol. 2 has inspired this little mind trip of a mashup that’s actually kind of funny. Just imagining Yondu in a prim and proper setting brings to mind the image of a

The Little Mermaid: Disney homes in on potential director

Simon Brew Dec 7, 2017

Into The Woods and Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall is next in line for the live action The Little Mermaid from Disney...

Disney’s had Mary Poppins Returns, Dumbo and Aladdin all filming this year, as it continues to look for new live action takes on some of its most popular family movies. Mulan is gearing up, with a planned start date of early next year. And now it looks as if the live action take on The Little Mermaid might have taken a nudge forward too.

Disney is apparently favouring Rob Marshall as its director of choice for the project. Marshall is directing Mary Poppins Returns, and thus has to finish that first. His CV also includes the likes of Into The Woods and Chicago.

It’s being reported that Marshall has already been offered The Little Mermaid job, and will make his decision over the Christmas break.

The Musical, only to have it go up in blue-colored smoke in a Hamilton-style duel gone wrong with...

Patton Oswalt Says Finding Love Again Was Like 'Getting Hit by Lightning Twice'
Patton Oswalt couldn't be more grateful for finding his wife, Meredith Salenger

The 48-year-old actor, who married Salenger earlier this month, opened up about what it was like to fall in love again during a recent interview with NPR, a year and a half after the death of his first wife, Michelle McNamara

"I was lucky enough to meet and fall in love and have someone as extraordinary as Michelle McNamara fall in love with me," Oswalt said. "And then -- it's almost like getting hit by lightning twice, that the statistical odds are so insane -- I met someone just as, if not even more, extraordinary in this woman Meredith Salenger." 

" fell in love with her and got her to fall in love with me and to fall in love with [my 8-year-old daughter], Alice," he added. 

Oswalt continued, likening his second wife to Mary Poppins, explaining that she helped bring him out of the depression he suffered after McNamara's

‘The Lion King’ Turns 20: How the Disney Musical Became One of Broadway’s Best (Exclusive)

‘The Lion King’ Turns 20: How the Disney Musical Became One of Broadway’s Best (Exclusive)
The house lights dim, the sun rises on its first performance, and a powerful voice belts out: “Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba,” the first lyrics of “Circle of Life.” Lindiwe Dlamini, a member of the ensemble dressed in a white dress, holding African bird puppets in either hand with another on her head, nervously waits in the wings as she readies to take the stage in the opening number of Disney’s Broadway adaptation of The Lion King, the 1994 animated hit film about a lion cub who overcomes adversity and accepts responsibility for his pride and land to become king of the jungle.

“You didn’t know how the audience was going to receive it, [but] the energy was beyond belief,” Dlamini recalls to Et. The actress was 29 years old when she was cast in The Lion King, which opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Nov. 13, 1997. The show later transferred to the Minskoff Theatre in 2006, where

Matching Mom and Daughters Capture Hearts with Adorable Photo Series: 'I Hope My Girls Remember the Fun Times'

Matching Mom and Daughters Capture Hearts with Adorable Photo Series: 'I Hope My Girls Remember the Fun Times'
In June 2016, Dominique Davis dressed herself and her 4-year-old daughter, Penny, in matching T-shirts one morning, then noticed that her other daughter, Amelia, 11, had emerged from her bedroom wearing the same striped Breton tee.

The 31-year-old blogger, who lives in the town of Durham, in the U.K., decided to capture the moment and posted a pic of her and the girls on her Instagram page, quickly garnering 14,000 likes.

From there, Davis, a single mom, posted another photo of the three using watermelons to mimic smiles, and “All That Is Three” was officially launched on her “All That Is She” blog.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Vault Of Horror (1973)

I’ve always had a great appreciation and fondness for horror anthologies, and I devoured horror comics as a kid; whether it was House of Mystery or Creepy magazine, they never failed to fire my imagination in short, sharp bursts. When the Romero/King collaboration Creepshow (1982) came out, my dream of seeing these kinds of stories translated to film was nothing but revelatory. I soon discovered it was not the first of its ilk, and began a journey through dusty video store shelves looking for its long-lost relatives. One of my first (and favorite) finds was Vault of Horror (1973), a five-fingered punch to my nascent, pubescent, omnibus-loving heart.

Released by Cinerama Releasing stateside in March and produced by Amicus (the fine folks behind its predecessor, Tales from the Crypt), Vault of Horror (aka The Vault of Horror, for the easily confused, I guess) was not as well received by critics as Tales,

Review: Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017)

When people aspire to succeed, it can sometimes result in quite incredible tales of fighting the odds to achieve victory. However, some stories of real-life achievement are not always as clear cut and blissful in their nature. And back in the mid-20s, when Winnie-the-Pooh was first released into a post-WW2 world, the story of its author A. A. Milne and its inspiration (his young son Christopher Robin Milne and his Teddy Edward) went a little lost, as the books and the character became some of the most cherished in all of children’s literature. In fact, I was not aware at all of the details of the story behind 100-Acre Wood and Winnie The Pooh and his friends but this new film from Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) arrives to tell that very tale…and not everything is as sweet as honey that’s for sure.

Starting off rather concisely,

Jason Momoa Goes Under the Sea in Latest Look at Aquaman

Jason Momoa Goes Under the Sea in Latest Look at Aquaman
It's been over five months since Aquaman started shooting in Australia, and while it remains to be seen when filming will wrap, a new video from the set has surfaced alongside more set photos, which tease some new armor for the title character. First off, there is a brief video from a local Australian news station, which shows Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and his queen Mera (Amber Heard) walking on the beach which is populated by a number of beach goers, none of whom seem to pay any attention to this couple, despite their rather colorful and elaborate outfits. While Mera's scaly green bodysuit is the same we've seen before, Aquaman's armor is brand new.

In the first part of this set video, which 7 News Gold Coast reports was shot in Currumbin, Australia, Aquaman is seen standing knee-deep in water on the shore, while forcefully grabbing Mera's arm. We can't hear what is being said,

Parmigiano at the readiano! The lowdown from the first ever Italian week

9.20pm BST

Whew. The end is dimly but definitely in sight, and nothing is cut and dried. Steven’s back on form, and lookin pici. Kate’s a proven master of escapology, Stacey is a victim of her own eschatology, and Yan’s departure proves we’ve had enough of experts.

Thanks to all of you who joined in, mainly to share your visceral unease at the thought of Hollywood in short shorts, brandishing a pizza paddle.

But we lose Yan! I’m genuinely shocked. Nooooo! We’ll never see that scooter injury heal now.
