Grease was the word tonight as Grease Live! hit television screens from 7:00-10:00pm ET on FOX. Live shows are all the rage nowadays, trending the instant they are on. This version combines both the musical and film version from the 70s. We know the story (and songs) by heart – good girl Sandy and greaser Danny Zuko have a summer beach romance. But romance goes awry when they “accidentally” run into each other at the same school. Danny has a rep to protect, and Sandy is shy and a goody-two shoes. But somehow, by meeting somewhere in the middle, they realize they “go together.”
An uptight lawyer who is about to get married takes his recently widower grandpa on what he thought would be an average day on a golf course. What could possibly go wrong? A lot when you discover that the man who you thought was a well-respected old fashioned person turns out to be a foul mouthed curmudgeon who hasn’t had sex in 15 years. Such is the basis for the film Dirty Grandpa starring Zac Efron and Robert De Niro.
Lionsgate has just released the newest red band trailer for Dirty Grandpa which features all sorts of devious sex acts, troublemaking, drug use, and other explicit things that can be considered NSFW. So break out those headphones, and make sure no one is watching, because you can watch the latest red band trailer for the film below.
Thursday nights Lip Sync Battle, kept it all in the family, as Derek Hough battled little sis, Julianne Hough. Both professional dancers, the brother and sister are also on Dancing With The Stars together.
At first I was like, “Well… I know Dancing With The Stars is popular, even though I love So You Think You Can Dance way more… so eh.” But I should have known that professional dancers, used to choreographing spectacular productions with less than professional dancers, would put on a show.

Disclaimer: I am a 27-year-old man with an affinity for musical theatre and ’80s glam rock. I am not ashamed to admit I have shed a tear or two during Glee or the occasional off-Broadway production of Rent. Musicals aren’t for everyone, but for all the Drama Nerds, Band Geeks, and Glee Kids out there, this one’s for you.
From director Adam Shankman (Hairspray) comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages. The year is 1987. Movies like Fatal Attraction, Moonstruck, and Beverly Hills Cop II blow up the box office while MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e, Def Leppard, and Bon Jovi play to sold-out stadiums across the country. In this alternate reality of 1987, however, rock god Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) is responsible for every ’80’s anthem and power ballad – an amalgam of every legendary front man in rock’n’roll history.
Rock of Ages features Julianne Hough (Footloose, Burlesque) as Sherrie Christian, a small-town girl who leaves Tulsa, Oklahoma to follow her Hollywood dreams. There she meets rock’n’roller Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), a bartender at The Bourbon Room, one of Sunset Strip’s hottest concert venues.
The first trailer for Rock of Ages, the latest movie musical based on a Broadway sensation, has been released. You can watch it here below.
Set in Los Angeles circa 1987, the story centers on a romance between two fame-hungry lovers (Diego Boneta, Julianne Hough) looking to break into the music industry in the decade where hair metal dominated the charts. Among the characters they encounter on their journey through the highs and lows of stardom are Alec Baldwin as a club owner, Mary J. Blige as another club owner, Bryan Cranston as the mayor of L.A., Catherine Zeta-Jones as the mayor’s wife and an anti-rock crusader, Tom Cruise (pictured above) as rock star Stacee Jaxx, and Paul Giamatti as Jaxx’s manager. The cast also features Russell Brand, Malin Akerman, and Will Forte.
