Bella Thorne has just joined the movie “Blended” with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore! The comedy is about Adam and Drew going on a blind date that doesn’t go so well. Both characters have kids from previous marriages, who end up benefitting from the relationship that grows between the duo after they find themselves stuck together in a resort.
Bella will play the daughter of Adam’s character.
“Blended” will arrive in theaters on May 23, 2014. Congratulations to Bella on this awesome role!
Here’s a note from Bella about the movie:
Thank you Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Frank Coraci, and WB for giving me the opportunity to work with such funny, talented actors. I know I am learning from the best.
The second trailer has dropped for White House Down, the Channing Tatum-starrer about a Capitol cop at the White House with his daughter who gets caught up in an paramilitary invasion. Roland Emmerich directs James Vanderbilt’s script, and Jamie Foxx, Jason Clarke and Maggie Gyllenhaal co-star. Sony will release the Columbia Pictures pic from Mythology Entertainment on June 28, and this is being shown in theaters beginning this weekend.
What I love most about movies is everything. But what I love second most about movies is the way they change every time you watch them (it must be the movies that are changing, because people don’t, right?). I can’t think of a better general example to describe this inconsistency than with my favorite sub-genre of film: teen movies. This sub-genre has not stopped growing in popularity or freshness since 1955 when James Dean put on his leather jacket in Rebel Without a Cause.
A teen film is defined by films whose main characters are teenagers (13-19) and whose plot is dependent on the fact that they are teenagers. This sub-genre stays prevalent in a way that others cannot. The jock, bully, cheerleader, first love archetypes are ones that have not left high school hallways since the ’50s. The sub-genre targets an impressive ground in audience, being able to reach the hearts of children staying up past their bedtimes, longing teens with Internet access, and adults reminiscing on their rebellious years. Teen movies continue to thrive in creating perfect harmonies of dirty jokes and sweet “firsts” the teenage drama that nourishes it shows no imminent signs of slowing down.
This being said, I want to share the impacts of five of my (soon-to-be your) favorite flicks from this sub-genre to remind you of their existences, and also to inspire you to look for something new within them. The following movies perfectly encapsulate what being a teenager is supposed to be, but never is:
Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, the flick also stars Katie Chang, Halston Sage,Taissa Farmiga, Leslie Mann, and Gavin Rossdale.
It tells the true story of a group of fame-obsessed teenagers who use the internet to track down celebrities in order to rob their homes.
The Bling Ring is set to hit a limited number of theaters on June 14th!
