First pic, poster of America Ferrera in ‘It’s a Disaster’

First pic, poster of America Ferrera in 'It's a Disaster'

America Ferrera is such a prolific young artist, who’s an Emmy, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award, ALMA and Imagen Award winner among others. She’s had her share of comedy with her hit show on ABC ‘Ugly Betty’. We also have seen her strong talents in the dramedy ‘Real Women Have Curves’. We will see her September 28 in ‘End of Watch’ with Jake Gyllenhaal. Finally, she will star opposite Michael Peña and Rosario Dawson in Diego Luna’s ‘Chavez’ as Helen Chavez, the wife of civil rights activist Cesar Chavez’. Given her resume, it’s a wonder what we can expect from her character in Todd Berger’s comedy ‘It’s a Disaster’ set to come out later on this year; which explores the idea on how four couples would deal with the unexpected end of the world.

Four girlfriends meet for Sunday brunch, brining their significant others and shortly realize this might be their last few hours on Earth. Tracy Scott (Julia Stiles) brings her boyfriend Glenn (David Cross) to meet her girlfriends for the first time: Hedy (America Ferrera), Emma (Erinn Hayes) and Lexi (Rachel Boston). Tracy nervously awaits her friends’ approval, not knowing that there are bigger things happening to worry about it. An apocalyptic disaster catches the four couples off guard, but they don’t let their issues take a back seat; instead they resolve to work them out.

The director was very keen in creating relationships that felt authentic as to have almost real people on screen reacting to an end of the world disaster. Berger injected comedy to the coming disaster; by having four unprepared couples that are at different stages of their relationships react in ways that would shock their significant other. Inspired by end of the world films such as ‘Night of the living dead’ and ‘2012’, he decided zombie’s have been overplayed and opted for a natural disaster instead; keeping in mind that the satirical part is that the end of the world is secondary to the character’s own problems. According to the director, panic runs out in a disaster situation, he aims to represent eight variations of human responses in this kind of situation. We anxiously wait to see what all the actors; Ferrera in particular, will be like in this comedy.

Check out the first picture and poster of the film ‘IT’S A DISASTER’.

Sparkle: Whitney’s last film

Sparkle: Whitney's last film

Before her sudden death at age 48, the legendary singer Whitney Houston made her last film – Sparkle. The film has an official release date for August 17, 2012 and sure to be now one of the most anticipated films of the year. Not much is known about Whitney’s character except she will play a single mother whose daughter has high aspirations of becoming a music superstar.

‘Sparkle’, is loosely based on the 1976 musical film that tells the story of Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) a girl who strives to become a music star, while trying to overcome the problems that are destroying her family. She comes from a wealthy neighborhood in Detroit, where she lives with her single mother (Whitney Houston). In the midst of her personal difficulties, Sparkle tries to balance a new romance with music manager, Stix (Derek Luke), while she and her two sisters (Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) face unexpected challenges in trying to become a dynamic group of singers during the golden era of Motown.

The only photo that exists so far of Houston in the movie is the one below. In it we see a Whitney holding her daughter in the film, Jordin Sparks, with a glamorous dress. She looks young, healthy and beautiful.

At the time of this publication, it is unknown when exactly the official premiere of the trailer of ‘Sparkle’ will be released or how much screen time Houston will have. So remember, August 17 we will see on the silver screen the last picture of one of the most unique voices of the 20th century.

First photo of Tom Cruise in ‘Rock of Ages’

First photo of Tom Cruise in 'Rock of Ages'

This has got to be the funniest pair of photos I have seen all year, perhaps in years! Tom Cruise looks so miscast here. The role should’ve gone to Mark Wahlberg. Anyone remember 2001’s ‘Rock Star‘? He was hilarious in it! Not too mention his rock star pipe dreams in ‘Boogie Nights‘.

Nevertheless, Tom Cruise plays Stacee Jaxx in ‘Rock Of Ages‘ about a small-town girl who arrives in Hollywood at the height of the 1980s rock-music scene. Cruise isn’t the girl by the way.

Adam Shankman directs this rock musical for New Line with a cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, Mexican actor Diego Boneta, and Julianne Hough, Ryan Seacrest’s flavor of the month.

Laugh your head off at these two pics below as much I did. Happy Father’s Day Tommy!
