It's Official: Beyoncé Is Playing Nala In The Lion King!

2 Nov 2017 by Johanna Teo

The Lion King fans and the Beyhive have much to look forward to, because Queen Bey has officially confirmed her role as Nala in the film’s live-action adaptation! 

From Alice in Wonderland to Beauty and the Beast to Maleficent, Disney isn’t slowing down on its trend of turning its beloved animated classics into blockbuster adaptations. And The Lion King is up for its very own remake, with none other than the talented Jon Favreau (the director behind The Jungle Book) at its helm, and an exciting cast of A-listers to boot. 

 After the full cast list was revealed on social media by Beyoncé and Disney respectively, fans couldn’t hold their excitement for the upcoming production – as if we could blame them. The cast includes Queen Bey (Nala), Donald Glover (Simba), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar), James Earl Jones (Mufasa), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa), Billy Eichner (Timon) John Oliver (Zazu) and more industry heavyweights. And as if it weren’t mindblowing that Queen Bey is stepping out as the Queen of Pride Rock, wrap your minds around the fact that Childish Gambino is set to be the Lion King himself, and James Earl Jones is reprising the same role as the original and ONLY Mufasa, over two decades later! 

We can’t wait for The Lion King’s release on 19 July 2019!

Goodbye Christopher Robin

We all know and love the Winnie the Pooh series, but how well do we know the man behind everyone’s favourite fictional teddy bear? After surviving the First World War, renowned children’s author A.A. Milne has been dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and struggling to live up to the expectations of the books. Seeking refuge in the countryside with his family, he soon finds inspiration for the Winnie the Pooh tales through the eyes of his young son.

The Mountain Between Us

A photojournalist and a surgeon are left stranded on a snowy mountain after a tragic plane crash. With no signs of civilisation and a shortage of supplies, the two strangers have to work together to survive the extreme weather. As they trudge across the miles of icy terrains hand-in-hand, an unexpected romance blooms between them… but will they overcome the mountain together?

My Little Pony Movie

Overworked and under-appreciated, the motley crew of unconventional mums find themselves rebelling against the unrealistic rules and expectations set by society as they face the Superbowl event of every mum’s life: Christmas. Even more challenging? They have to do it all while hosting their own set of equally critical mothers. Yikes!

Ah Boys To Men 4

“Reservist loh!” No longer the ‘chao’ Ah Boys we once knew, Sergeant Ong, Wayang King and gang are all grown up and busy with their own lives – until they get called back for army duties. Our favourite recruits find their military roles hilariously reversed and a new female soldier introduced into their comedic band of brothers. But with an actual threat impending, can their brotherhood stand up to the test?

Wind River

Amongst the brutal landscape of the United States, a Native American teenage girl is left dead, cold and buried in snow. Suddenly everyone in the sparsely-populated town is a suspect.

Will the intense pursuit bring justice to the dead, or will the new partners find themselves becoming part of the mystery?

The Justice League blockbuster every DC Comics fan has been eagerly anticipating will finally be hitting our silver screens, and it’s gearing up to be DC’s biggest production yet.

Hell on Earth”, it’s up to our favourite team of superheroes to save the world from disaster.

Watch Millie Bobby Brown Recap Stranger Things With An Epic Rap

1 Nov 2017 by Johanna Teo

Need a Stranger Things refresher before watching season 2? Let Millie Bobby Brown aka badass Eleven school you with an epic rap recap. 

13-year-old Millie Bobby Brown isn’t just your average breakout Hollywood star; she’s rocking the small screens now as Eleven from Netflix hit Stranger Things, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she dropped a rap album either. Swinging by The Tonight Show, Millie ran through run-of-the-mill interview questions before Jimmy Fallon (finally!) invited her onstage to drop some bars. About Stranger Things of course. 

Fans might already be aware of the actress’ rapping talent thanks to her impressive cover of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Monster’ verse last year (and also on Jimmy Fallon), but nothing will be able to prep you for the badassery that was Millie’s performance. 

Starting out swaggeringly slow, Millie introduces Stranger Things  (“Let’s go back to Indiana, circa Nineteen Eighty-Three/ Just four boys in the basement chillin’ playin’ D&D”) and spits her way through major plot lines, throwing in bits about Will, Dustin, Joyce’s Christmas light saga and even a little #JusticeForBarb. Then lending influence from yet another iconic female rapper – this time from Cardi B –, Millie declares Eleven’s love for Eggos and how it’s “Bad news when you see that bloody nose”. Of course, she ends her epic set with a mic drop. And we wouldn’t expect anything less! 

Watch Millie’s performance here, and scroll down to watch the rest of her interview on The Tonight Show!

13 Celebrities Who Totally Slayed Their Halloween Costumes

31 Oct 2017 by Johanna Teo

As per tradition of the year’s spookiest event, Hollywood turned out in full force with their Halloween costumes. There were celebrities dressed to the nines, film characters and other legendary faces. Let’s dive right in to the best costumes of 2017! 

#1 Sarah Hyland as Dustin from Stranger Things 


A post shared by Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) on

Yep. Stranger Things have definitely happened. 

#2 Kim Kardashian as Cher

Stepping out with Hollywood BFF Jonathan Cheban as Sonny Bono and Cher, Kim’s get-up even received a nod of approval from Cher herself! 

#3 Jessica Alba as Juno 


A post shared by Jessica Alba (@jessicaalba) on

Incorporating her baby bump into this year’s outfit, Jessica Alba dressed up as Juno from the hit movie of the same name. Needless to say, this mama slayed Halloween!

#4 Karlie Kloss as Marilyn Monroe 


A post shared by Karlie Kloss (@karliekloss) on

A vision in white, this leggy supermodel channelled her Marilyn Monroe best.

#5 Demi Lovato as Selena Quintanilla


Demi’s homage to the late Selena Quintanilla is definitely one of our favourite Halloween transformations on this list. From her purple jumpsuit to her hoop earrings to her dramatic makeup, Demi bore an uncanny resemblance to the iconic singer. 

#6 Eric Andre as Cardi B


A post shared by Eric Andre (@ericfuckingandre) on

The world’s been swept up in Cardi B fever and this comedian did perfectly on his hilarious version of the rapper, down to her swagger-filled poses, albeit looking kinda uncomfortable. 

#7 Kristen Bell as Elsa


When your daughter demands you BOTH be ELSA for Halloween…you GRIN AND FORKING BEAR IT. #halloween

A post shared by kristen bell (@kristenanniebell) on

Looks like 2015’s Frozen is still a popular choice in the Bell household. Too bad Kristen’s daughter insisted they both dress up as Elsa and not Anna – who was voiced by Kristen herself. Awkward… 

#8 Dua Lipa as Harry Potter


A post shared by DUA LIPA (@dualipa) on

A truly dedicated performer, Dua Lipa committed to her Harry Potter costume all the way – even if that meant having to go onstage as the Boy who Lived. Gotta admit, it was kinda weird seeing her in full Hogwarts attire, but Dua’s performances from that day ended up giving us all life. 

#9 Beyoncé as Lil Kim and Jay Z as Notorious B.I.G


A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

The Carter fam is known for their sick Halloween costumes. And this year’s no difference, with the Hollywood It couple channelling another powerhouse duo: the Notorious B.I.G and Lil’ Kim. 

#10 Kourtney Kardashian as Michael Jackson

There’s gotta be someone dressing up as the late King of Pop every Halloween, and this year, Kourtney Kardashian steps up the plate. Kim K’s Madonna costume is worth a mention as well! 

#11 Halsey & G-Eazy as The Great Gatsby 


A post shared by halsey (@iamhalsey) on

Halsey’s version of Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby is definitely worth gasping over. G-Eazy’s Jay Gatsby however… pales in comparison.

#12 Ellie Goulding as Dolly Parton 


A post shared by elliegoulding (@elliegoulding) on

Looking near unrecognisable in her Dolly Parton getup, Ellie Goulding rocks her sequinned cowboy boots and blinged up cowgirl-style dress like a natural. Could this be a hint of the musical genre she’s steering towards? 

#13 Cardi B as Cruella De Ville


A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

The newly engaged rapper perches on her throne as Disney’s Cruella De Ville (or Bruella, according to Cardi), looking totally bomb while at it.
