In an official statement, the actor made it clear that he believed the choice was what was “right,” noting that portraying the part in “a culturally accurate way” was clearly important for audiences (Skrein also pointed to his own “mixed heritage” family in the statement, which you can read here).

STXfilms touted the movie as being in the vein of “Working Girl” and “Maid in Manhattan.” Lopez will portray a big box store employee who reinvents her life and her lifestyle, which gets her the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree.
“There are so many things I love about this project and script,” said Lopez. “People try to put women to sleep at a certain age. ‘Second Act’ is a story that empowers the every woman to do more, to be more, and not limit their dreams. I am thrilled to partner with Stx as they continue to create and empower the female audience.”

Veteran comedy director Peter Segal will direct the film. His credits include “50 First Dates,” “Anger Management,” and “Get Smart.”
The project was developed by Stx with Lopez from an idea conceived by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Justin Zackham. The two wrote the script for “Second Act,” which will be produced by Lopez, Goldsmith-Thomas, Zackham and Benny Medina.
Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms, and the studio’s president of production Sam Brown made the announcement Thursday.
“When Jennifer, Elaine and Justin came to us with this idea, we loved it right away,” said Fogelson. “The premise of reinventing yourself and creating a career and life-defining second act is hugely relatable and aspirational. Jennifer’s talents as a film and television actress, producer and recording artist are legendary. She is a true global superstar and and we think she is perfect for this role.”
Lopez starred in several successful romantic comedies and dramas between 2001 and 2005, including “The Wedding Planner,” “Maid in Manhattan,” “Shall We Dance,” and “Monster in Law.” Other key credits include “Out of Sight,” “The Cell,” and “Anaconda.” She starred opposite Ryan Guzman in 2015’s erotic thriller “The Boy Next Door.”
Stx noted in the announcement that its next six releases feature women in leading roles — “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” “Molly’s Game,” “Gringo,” “A Bad Moms Christmas” and “The Happytime Murders.”

And now, though Yamaguchi rarely laces up her skates, she’s passed the torch — to her 11-year-old daughter, Emma.
Though her own competitive skating days are long behind her, Yamaguchi tells People she still spends four days a week at the rink with her daughter, who has been skating for five years. Whether she’ll follow her mom’s Olympic path is still up for debate, however.
“Of course at that age, there’s Olympic aspirations,
“The hair! The big bangs!” she joked with People Now on Thursday, while looking back at photos of her on Feb. 21, 1992 — when she claimed the top prize. “It’s amazing — it’s defying gravity!”

The Games were notable for Yamaguchi for a few reasons.
That’s the puzzling question everyone was asking at the L.A. premiere for “The Space Between Us,” the latest offering from British “Shall We Dance” director Peter Chelsom, at the ArcLight Hollywood on Tuesday night.
For the film’s lead actor Asa Butterfield, who plays Gardner Elliot, a boy who grows up on Mars yearning to see the earth and find his father, it’s a combination of the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon, and the “wild adventure” of a big city like Tokyo.
“What was really important for me was channeling Gardner’s wonder and naivety at everything he sees,” Butterfield said. “It’s almost like going back to a childlike state of wonderment at the world, which was a lot of fun.”
Chelsom echoed his lead’s opinion that nature is one of his favorite things about the planet,
Kaho Minami (“Kabukicho Love Hotel”) and Koji Yakusho (“Shall We Dance”) also starred in the production, which filmed in Tokyo and Los Angeles. Matchgirl Pictures, Will Ferrell-Adam McKay’s Gloria Sanchez Productions and Meridian Content are the production companies.

The feature length film is based on the short film of the same name, directed by Japanese director Atsuko Hirayanagi from her own script. The short won the Jury Prize for International Fiction at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

Hernandez was going for the gold, literally, as she took the stage in a glitzy one-piece dress and a perfectly-styled ballerina bun. With help from Chmerkovskiy, she nailed her final "24 hour fusion" dance, which consisted of the foxtrot and Argentine tango.
Showcasing Hernandez's athleticism with stellar lifts, fierce extensions and quick movements across the floor, the routine received a perfect score and raving reviews from all four of the judges. "My golly, you really are a spectacular dancer," said Bruno Tonioli. "Right on the money, honey! Fantastic!"

The main reason so many directors chose the particular genre was due to the complete artistic freedom given to the them after they have met four criteria:
The film must have a required minimum quota of sex scenes (supposedly a sex scene every five minutes, although this rule was never strictly met) The film must be approximately one hour in duration. It must be filmed on 16 mm or 35 mm film within one week. The film must be made on a very limited budget (about $35,000)

For those who aren't well versed in Broadway mechanics there's generally a few weeks of performances called "previews" wherein shows are technically not "open" and yet they're playing every night as they approach opening night. It's the easiest time to get tickets to almost anything so if you miss the previews good luck! Other avid theatergoers might have a different take but I've found that as a general rule

Independently produced, shot on 35mm film and edited using traditional flatbeds, Pink Eiga (Pink Films) run the genre gamut including comedies, romantic dramas, ‘midnight movies’ and horror films. The immense popularity of Pink Eiga in Japan is often due to its strange, extreme, and outrageous storylines. The films consistently push the boundaries of cultural commentary, giving unique insight into Japanese subculture and its stimulating proclivities.
Says Nadav Rechov, President of Pink Eiga Inc:
The primary difference from contemporary adult movies boils down to this: Pink Eiga are short form narrative features that feature sexual situations.
