This TWILIGHT trailer gives us an idea of what the movie would be like if it were made as a romantic teen comedy, and we’d still watch it! There’s something to be said about a movie that the majority of people supposedly despise and yet still talk about (or make light of in this case) almost nine years later. Yes, there are people that probably swear on their mother’s grave they hate Twilight. And that’s fine. It’s not for us to judge other people’s opinions of a movie that you might love. But even if you love the movie, sometimes you can…

Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of HARRY POTTER is getting an expansion, including floo and Forbidden Forest themed rides!

And with the success of the Wizarding World Hollywood that opened last year, it was only a matter of time before the original park got another expansion. And with Universal starting to patent up, sources are beginning to talk, giving us an insight into what’s to come. Reports from the Orlando Business Journal this week revealed that the Dragon Challenge coaster – which has been in the park…

Butterbeer ice cream is hitting shelves in the U.S.! Brace yourselves: Butterbeer may be available at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in hot, frozen, or regular drink forms, but an ice cream version of the favorite flavor will soon be hitting shelves nationwide! Yuengling Ice Cream company out of Pennsylvania just added a new butterbeer flavor to their line-up, describing it as “half buttercream ice cream, half butterscotch ice cream, and twisted with a butterscotch swirl.” This will definitely be a sweet treat, meant to match the popular Harry Potter beverage J.K. Rowling described as tasting like “a little bit like…

Mark Hamill shares old school photos and stories from the STAR WARS set! There were plenty of photos taken in the early days of the Star Wars franchise, but many of them didn’t see the light of day until years later. But for all the special photo books and anniversary spreads, there’s one photo that holds a special place in Mark Hamill’s heart and hasn’t been seen before. Hamill took to Twitter to share “perhaps the very first” photo of himself as Luke Skywalker. He was a young’un of 25-years-old in the sands of Tunisia (aka Tatooine), waiting to film…

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991) gets a sad twist in How It Should Have Ended video! How It Should Have Ended have taken on the animated classic in their newest video, just in time for the live-action Beauty and the Beast’s theatrical debut (check out our review of it here). This ‘how it should have ended’ video pokes fun at the animated film, though their alternate ending is a little on the morbid side. Check it out below: That was a little sad, right? Even with the humour thrown in. I think I might prefer the fairytale ending, even if it’s not…

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST can get pretty creepy, as evidenced by two new parody videos! It’s a tale as old as time, but Beauty and the Beast became popularized in 1991 thanks to Disney’s animated take on the film. With the live-action remake just days away, popular YouTubers have had no problem doing their own unique spoofs and funny critiques of the cartoon we all grew up with. Screen Junkies is up first with the Beauty and the Beast Honest Trailer, which hones in on details like just how young The Beast was when his curse befell him and Belle’s disdain…

10 THINGS I CAN SEE FROM HERE brings to light the anxiety that teenager Maeve struggles with on a daily basis, especially when it comes to death. If you stopped by the bookstore lately, you might’ve seen this cover around, but you weren’t sure if you should take a chance on it. Well, first of all, 10 Things I Can See From Here is the U.S. debut novel by Canadian award-winning author Carrie Mac. Secondly, the story deals with how mental illness can often debilitate a person. And thirdly, there’s a little romance between the main female character and another teenage girl she…

Sing along with these very different MOANA songs in a new Honest Trailer! Screen Junkies is at it again with a brand new Honest Trailer full of zingers, this time for Disney’s beloved new musical Moana. The Honest Trailer takes aim at the cultural representation snafus and Disney tropes that came out of the movie, then repeatedly fails to come to grips with the film representing the ocean as a living being. However, the video also brings in a few song parodies that are pretty funny– particularly the one reminding us that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson isn’t much of a…

OUTLANDER newbies and an old favorite have some on-set laughs! Fans of Outlander will have to wait until autumn for a new season of the hit Starz show, but at least we get to see the cast have a little fun in the meantime. Entertainment Tonight headed to the set and played a little game of “This Or That” with longtime cast member Tobias Menzies (Frank Randall/Black Jack Randall), as well as newer cast members Sophie Skelton (Brianna Randall), Richard Rankin (Roger MacKenzie), and Cesar Domboy (adult Fergus). Everything starts off rather innocently, but things get a bit wild toward…

As we near the end of Black History Month, we would like to give one last recognition for those, both real and fictional, that we think are inspirational to all people of color. Literature Danielle Paige (author of “Dorothy Must Die” series) Danielle Paige is the queen of YA fairytale retellings. Not only does the Dorothy Must Die series turn the world of Oz on to its head and make childhood heroes into terrifying, convincing villains, it puts an underprivileged teen named Amy Gumm in a position to change the world. They’re dark and edgy, so this series could have…
