While the family of Whitney Houston chose not to attend the première of the late singer's biopic, the cast and various celebrities were seen in attendance.
It would probably be an understatement to say that Whitney Houston was a beloved musician. The singer, actress and model has been often hailed as the most awarded musician of all time, and whether you listen to her songs as part of the soundtrack for a critically-polarising movie or while dancing the year away on 31st December each year, Houston is still the only artist to have seven consecutive top charting singles.
In the upcoming Lifetime biopic, 'Whitney', the life of the performer and her relationship with husband Bobby Brown, is charted from the days of her humble church choir beginnings up until her tragic death from a combination of heart failure and drowning at the guest room of The Beverly Hilton. Coincidently, just a few blocks away from the site of her death stands The Paley Centre for Media - the site of the premiere for 'Whitney'.

'Into The Storm' director Steven Quale, producer Todd Garner and professional storm-chaser Reed Timmer unveil the truth about the tornadoes the film is based on in a short featurette.
'In this movie, this storm cell hangs around for four hours over one particular area so there's a number of different tornadoes that occur during that system', says Todd. One of those types is the Wedge Tornado which Reed explains is ' wider than it is tall and usually the strongest tornadoes', and Todd describes as an 'enormous machine of destruction that can have wind speeds as high as 300mph that can just rip buildings and roofs off like they're Styrofoam'. The movie is out on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 15th 2014.
Into The Storm Is Available On Blu-Ray And Dvd On 15th December 2014
When Mother Nature takes hold, there's nothing anyone can do to thwart her plans for destruction. Silverton seems to be gearing up for another magnificently warm day in the sun, but it isn't long before the azure sky turns to grey and the sound of severe weather sirens flood the panicked streets. With no time to get to shelter or even to reach loved ones, all residents can hope to do is stick together and cling on for dear life as a series of colossal tornadoes crash through the town, sucking up everything in their paths. It's clear that not everyone's going to make it through such a brutal disaster as planes fail to divert and civillians are easily engulfed by the ever-multiplying twisters. But for one group of people, this is a day that must be remembered, and the town's most intrepid storm chasers venture out into the chaos to capture the remarkable sight on film.

It starts out as a gloriously sun-soaked day in Silverton, but in just a few hours, the blue sky darkens to grey and warning sirens can be heard blaring through all corners of the town. The sirens warn of an approaching mass of tornadoes spinning rapidly in their direction and residents are forced to take cover as the twisters demolish everything in reach. Not everyone can make it, and it's a terrifying ordeal for those whose shelters have been ripped apart. But, for one group of people, the ever intrepid storm chasers of the town, it's an opportunity of a lifetime to witness a major natural disaster on their own doorstep and they set out to follow the cyclones in a bid to land the perfect camera shot.

Filmmaker Leberecht takes an intriguingly askance approach to the vampire genre with this dark, romantic horror film, but after after a promising set-up seems unsure where to go from there. By shifting the focus from the insinuating, offbeat love story, the film becomes vacuously blood-soaked. And the initial sense of menace is much more interesting than the actual violence.
The film centres on Jacob (Kilberg), a night security guard who has a skin condition that makes him unusually sensitive to sunlight. After a strange encounter with a janitor (Walter), something changes in him and he starts craving meat, then raw meat, then blood. And when he inadvertently gets a taste of human blood, he can't control his hunger for it. In desperation, he turns to a nurse (Jonz) to get an illicit supply from a hospital. But after having a few blackouts, he worries that he's also hunting victims. Meanwhile, he hides all of this from his quirky new girlfriend Maya (Parish), who begins to suspect that something's up.
Everything about the film's opening act suggests intrigue and emotional confusion, from the darkly atmospheric camerawork to Kilberg's raw, engaging performance, which is tinged with grim wit. As he starts to suspect that he's a vampire, the film plays knowingly with cliches, injecting both comedy and freak-out moments along the way. Meanwhile, Kilberg and Parish develop a strong sense of chemistry that's far more believable than the way the script plots their relationship through a series of choppy romantic encounters.
