Donald Glover Is Retiring Childish Gambino

Published

on

Donald Glover is moving forward with plans to retire his Childish Gambino name, despite having just signed his first major label deal last week, with RCA.

Back in June, Glover announced that he won’t be going by that name for much longer. Now, seven months and one Grammy Award win later, Glover told the press that his decision to end his 10-year-old moniker remains the same. “I stand by that. I’m really appreciative of this. I’m making another project right now,” he said. “But I like endings, I think they’re important to progress.”

Explaining the decision, he told HuffPost: “There’s nothing worst than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?

Glover later continued, “I think if a lot of things had death clauses in them, we wouldn’t have a lot of problems in the world, to be honest. I think endings are good because they force things to get better.”

“You know, I like it when something’s good and when it comes back there’s a reason to come back, there’s a reason to do that.”

I don’t know if that analogy holds up – a third film sequel and a third album are apples and oranges – but it made a little more sense when he went on to discuss his feelings towards his music.

“Like I feel like there’s gotta be a reason to do things and I always had a reason to be punk,” he continued. “Being punk just always felt really good to me and we always looked at ‘Atlanta’ as a punk show and I feel like the direction I would go with Childish Gambino wouldn’t be punk anymore. As much as ‘Redbone’ is a punk song because it’s a gospel song that’s on the radio, I’m like there’s only so far you can go before you just are the radio.”

Glover nabbed the aforementioned coveted award for Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Redbone” off his latest album, “Awaken, My Love!” He was also nominated for four other awards including Album of the Year and Record of the Year.

Shazam! Trailer Debuts At Comic Con

Published

on

Warner Bros is bringing Shazam to the big screen for the first time. Zachery Levi stars as the teenager that turns into a super hero with the magical word.

In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).

Shazam! opens April 5, 2019 and also stars Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Djimon Hounsou, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Ron Cephas Jones.

This is a huge tone shift from the dark work from BVS and Justice League.

Aquaman Is Ready To Rule The Seven Seas In First Trailer

Published

on

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the underwater epic Aquaman.

Jason Momoa and Director James Wan are changing the narrative of Aquaman with this standalone film. Wan spoke about his vision for the popular DC character.

“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally, story-wise, it’s my own take. It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”

For Momoa it’s really simple, “My job is to make this guy cool”.

Check out the official synopsis for the movie.

“From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman”, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime — one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be … a king.”

Aquaman will be in theaters December 21.

The First Glass Trailer Is Officially Here

Published

on

Universal Pictures has released the first official trailer for Glass.

Glass is the long-awaited Unbreakable sequel, which also serves as a sequel to last year’s Split, finally arrives next year. Samuel L. Jackson is back as Mr. Glass, with James Mcavoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, and Bruce Willis as David Dunn.

Split was a surprise hit for M. Night Shyamalan and fans of Unbreakable. The movie made $40 million on the opening weekend and did a more than respectable $276 million worldwide, off a $9 million budget. But the biggest twist was finding out it was in the same universe as Unbreakable.

Samuel L. Jackson spoke about his character and working with James McAvoy.

“All of a sudden, my character has the thing he wanted: the heroic good guy, the bad guy, and I get to be in the middle of them. It has a distinct satisfaction if you remember what his theory was all along, that there are people out here with extraordinary powers who can do extraordinary things. And it’s amazing to watch James [McAvoy] have an argument with four different characters in front of my face.”

Glass is set to hit theaters January 18, 2019.
