Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel want it all

Here’s a little short and fun piece from High School Musical 3 “Senior Year” by Ashley Tisadale and Lucas Grabeel. They obvious look like they have graduated two years before but I guess that’s the problem of make-up and wardrobe. And yes, it’s still good.

The Second Week of Tokyo Gay Film Festival

This year’s Tokyo International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival (TILGFF) is doing something different by expanding to encompass two locales over a total of eight days (July 11-13 and 17-21).

“While the festival’s second half will continue to make its home in the artsy venue of Spiral Hall in Tokyo’s fashionable Aoyama district, this past weekend’s films screened for the first time in festival history at the deluxe Wald 9 Cinemas in Shinjuku, adjacent to Tokyo’s famed gay neighborhood of Ni-chome.”

Wicked Coming to Big Screen

The popular and totally wicked Broadway musical Wicked is moving on to big screen, following other successful musicals such as Chicago, Hairspray and Mama Mia!

According to Paybill News, this new production will be handled by Marc Platt Productions for Universal Pictures: “Universal Pictures production president Donna Langley told the industry paper, “Our goal now is absolutely to make the Wicked film, but much like Judy Craymer wouldn’t give up screen rights to Mamma Mia! until the stage show had reached its pinnacle, Marc and Stephen Schwartz are very mindful of the right timing. But we’re dying to do it.”

So there were ice-cream shooting cows and rabbit-like animals dancing. This time it’s the British Animation Award winning (for best comedy) ‘Simon’s Cat‘ brought to you by Tandem films director Simon Tofield.

Amanda Seyfried’s Gimme Gimme Gimme

This is the music video of Amanda Seyfried’s attempt on ABBA’s Gimme Gimme Gimme to promote Mama Mia: The Movie which also stars Dominic Cooper and Meryl Streep. The ABBA song is still good after so many years but promoting the movie with Seyfried’s singing? I’m not so sure. What’s for sure is that her attempt is definitely not the best cover out there.
