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.

Lebron James’ Space Jam Sequel Officially Happening

Published

on

The long-rumored Space Jam sequel finally has been greenlit.

Lebron James will star and produce the film with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler. Warner Bros has the film slated for a 2019 release.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” says James, “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”

No word yet on other NBA stars joining the cast.

Michael B. Jordan Says Creed II Is About More Than Revenge

Published

Michael B. Jordan is ready to entire the ring again in Creed II.

In the sequel, Adonis Creed will go toe to toe against the son of Ivan Drago. Jordan spoke about Victor Drago’s motivation in the film.

“Victor’s storyline is very layered,” Jordan told the Toronto Sun. “The two guys are similar in a lot of ways…Adonis feels, naturally, a certain animosity towards Viktor and Ivan, and then there are other themes in there: the maturity of growth, the importance of family, of legacy, is what makes Creed so special. It’s not just about revenge.”

When asked if he would be willing to carry on as Adonis Creed for four decades, similar to Stallone, Jordan said he’s definitely up for it.

“If I’m lucky. I want to keep making them as long as they’re good,” he said. “I always want to keep my finger on the pulse. Forty two years, I mean, who knows?”

Captain Marvel: Watch The First Trailer

Published

on

Marvel finally released trailer for Captain Marvel.

Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who gains superpowers after her DNA is fused with that of an alien following an accident, in the 1990s-set Captain Marvel. It will be the first Marvel solo film to focus on a female character.

Larson spoke to EW about what attracted her to the character. “She can’t help but be herself,” Larson tells EW. “She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.”

Captain Marvel flys into theaters March 6, 2019.
