Early reviews for 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again' are in.
When jukebox musical 'Mamma Mia!' first hit theaters in 2008, of course it was going to divide opinion. News of 'Mamma Mia 2', then, had haters assuming the worst, but in actual fact the film seems to have endeared a great many sceptics this time round.
The cast of 'Mamma Mia 2'
Combining one of the greatest pop acts of all time with a cheesy story of romance, comedy and family values, 'Mamma Mia!' was certainly not for everyone. Given it's light-hearted fun and endless stream of the greatest hits from ABBA, it unsurprisingly won numerous awards, and it looks like the same destiny could lie before 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again'.

It was a dream come true for Amanda to work with Shirley on 'The Last Word'.
One of the greatest things about being a young actor has got to be getting to work with veterans of the profession who inspired you to take up a career on the stage and/or screen in the first place. For Amanda Seyfried, it was a dream come true getting to work alongside Shirley Maclaine.
Shirley MacLaine and Amanda Seyfried star together in 'The Last Word'
Amanda and Shirley star together in the recently released comedy drama 'The Last Word', in which Amanda plays a struggling journalist and Shirley plays an unlikeable businesswoman who wants to oversee the writing of her obituary knowing full well that few people have anything nice to say about her.
What a revival it will be!
Is there anyone left in Hollywood NOT starring in the 'Twin Peaks' revival?! The 200-strong cast of the upcoming David Lynch series has been announced in full, revealing not only the original actors set to return (so thats pretty much everyone), but a whole bunch of new faces who will appear - including a handful of musical stars.
David Lynch is directing a stellar cast for 'Twin Peaks'
The upcoming new show is a continuation of the events of the 90s drama's original two series. It's only due for a limited 18-episode run on Showtime next year, which probably explains why so many people have agreed to get on board. Literally everyone you can think of from the show is making an appearance; Kyle MacLachlan as Agent Dale Cooper, Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer, Mädchen Amick as Shelly Johnson, Dana Ashbrook as Bobby Briggs, Richard Beymer as Benjamin Horne, Sherilyn Fenn as Audrey Horne, Ray Wise as Leland Palmer and many more.
Charlotte Cooper is the family matriarch and all she wants is for her family to be together at Christmas. All her children are now grown up and some have kids of their own. Like most families, their bond over the years might've loosened slightly as day to day life gets in the way but Christmas is different, it's a time to reunite and enjoy the holidays together.
Easier said than done with the Cooper's. Charlotte and her husband have decided to divorce (a secret they plan on keeping from the family as to not destroy the family break) their oldest daughter lives in another state, is out of work and has been dumped by her partner and is hates the idea of going home and facing the family whilst their son is currently dealing with his daughters back-chatting ways. As many problems are there are, there must be a way through in the spirit of Christmas.
Director Jessie Nelson has described The Coopers as The Christmas Von Trapp family commenting: "I like to say The Coopers are The von Trapps of this Christmas. They are the von Coopers,"
Charlotte Cooper is determined to make this Christmas the best holiday the family has ever had, given that it's the only time of year when everyone's together. But, of course, while she and husband Sam are struggling to get everything perfect, everyone is equally struggling with other areas of their lives. Daughter Eleanor has been single for a while now, and the last thing she wants to do is arrive home without a boyfriend - again! And so, she convinces a soldier she meets at the airport to accompany her to her Christmas family reunion and pretend to be her partner, to which he reluctantly agrees. Meanwhile, the other daughter, Emma, gets in trouble with the police for jewel theft, and their son Hank has his work cut out when it comes to caring for his young daughter Madison alone; especially when she starts to learn some seriously unfriendly words.

After several high-profile grown-up movies (from Atonement to Anna Karenina), director Joe Wright aims this Peter Pan origin story squarely at children. So while it's far too manic and broad for adults, this adventure will be the most exciting movie any 8-year-old has seen in years. It's colourful and fantastical, and it thankfully doesn't indulge in reworking the beloved J.M. Barrie stories. Instead, it imagines an action-packed prequel universe.
As German bombs fall on London during the Blitz, young Peter (Levi Miller) is up to all kinds of mischief in the grim orphanage overseen by Mother Barnabas (Kathy Burke), who sells bad boys to airborne pirates. Sure enough, one night Peter is taken, sailing into the sky to Neverland, where he is sent to work in the mines for the swaggering, heartless Captain Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). In the mines Peter is befriended by the adventurer Hook (Garrett Hedlund), and when Peter discovers that he can fly they make their escape. Blackbeard chases them out into the woods, where they take refuge with Princess Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and her tribe, which is convinced that Peter is the child of a prophecy that will lead the fairy kingdom to freedom. But just when Peter learns who his parents really were, Blackbeard catches up with them.
This is an old-school kids' movie, packed with larger-than-life characters and outrageously imaginative action sequences that make the most of the 3D cinematography. Yes, there's so much digital trickery going on that the movie is essentially a cartoon, but it's so vividly explosive that it's a lot of fun to watch. And many of the big set-pieces are genuinely thrilling. There's also quite a lot of fun to be had in the way the story twists the familiar characters around. Obviously, Hook couldn't have always been a bad guy; here he's one of the heroes, and he still has both hands, which hints that further prequel adventures may be on the cards.

Gwyneth Paltrow discussed the gender pay gap in Hollywood.
Gwyneth Paltrow is adding her name to the growing list of female (and many male) actors who are appalled with the substantial gender pay gap in Hollywood. The 43-year-old Mortdecai actor and Goop founder hit back at the film industry for its inequality and sexism during a recent interview. She also used one very prominent example to prove her point.
