I'm Pretty Sure This New Cats Movie Is Just a Summary of 2018 I'm Pretty Sure This New Cats Movie Is Just a Summary of 2018

The last few weeks have seen a flurry of casting news for a new movie based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s T.S. Eliot-inspired musical about actual cats hanging out. It is both the most 2018 news to appear on the horizon and also the most 1981 news. Personally, I’m still trying to understand it!

The End of the World Is Both Festive and Musical in the Latest Anna and the Apocalypse Trailer The End of the World Is Both Festive and Musical in the Latest Anna and the Apocalypse Trailer

The more we see of Anna and the Apocalypse, the more we’re charmed by its heady mix of teen shenanigans, almost-annoyingly-catchy musical numbers, and the fact that it’s all that and a zombie movie. This latest trailer ticks all those boxes again, to lovely effect.

Brighten Up Your Day With a Song From the Zombie Musical Anna and the Apocalypse Brighten Up Your Day With a Song From the Zombie Musical Anna and the Apocalypse

Sure, this holiday season will bring Aquamen, Bumblebees, and flying nannies. But only one movie will have singing, zombies, and high school kids, all set at Christmas. That movie is Anna and the Apocalypse—and finally, after over a year of waiting for the movie’s release, you can now see one of its musical numbers in…

The Strange, Beautiful, and Now Tumblr-Friendly History of Sci-Fi Musicals The Strange, Beautiful, and Now Tumblr-Friendly History of Sci-Fi Musicals

Science fiction has a complicated history in musical theater. Much like the Academy Awards, which usually reward stories about “real people” over sci-fi and fantasy (with 2017's Best Oscar win for The Shape of Water being a notable exception), musical theater audiences tend to scoff at spacey sagas. However, some…

Our First Look at Riverdale's Take on Carrie: The Musical Is as Fabulous as You'd Dreamed

Riverdale is a show that delights in going for it so thoroughly, I am pretty sure the dictionary definition of “go for it” just comes with a picture of the cast’s CW-perfect faces stapled to it at this point. The gang’s take on Carrie: The Musical in this week’s special all-singing, all-dancing episode is no exception.

A Bad Lip Reading of A New Hope Somehow Turns Star Wars Into a Fantastic Musical

What if, instead of hiring John Williams to compose the score for Star Wars: A New Hope, George Lucas had brought on Marvin Hamlisch to turn his space opera into an intergalactic musical? The latest episode of Bad Lip Reading gives us a look at what might actually be the only way A New Hope could be improved.

Fox Is Looking to Make a Fantasy Musical About Hans Christian Andersen Fox Is Looking to Make a Fantasy Musical About Hans Christian Andersen

Although the Hugh Jackman vehicle The Greatest Showman didn’t sit well with critics, it performed well enough at the box office that Fox is looking to try again by bringing another musical to the big screen—and its next story has a very weird, fantastical twist.

An AI With an Eerily Familiar Voice Offers a Musical Crash Course on the Electromagnetic Spectrum An AI With an Eerily Familiar Voice Offers a Musical Crash Course on the Electromagnetic Spectrum

It’s a science lesson, musical, 2001: A Space Odyssey homage, and video game shout-out all in one when an IT guy (Ed Wasser from Babylon 5) who hates cat videos encounters an AI who just wants a li’l internet access in the NASA-created “NOTGLaDOS: Electromagnetic Spectrum The Musical.”

Anna and the Apocalypse is the High School Christmas Zombie
Musical of Your Dreams Anna and the Apocalypse is the High School Christmas Zombie Musical of Your Dreams

Anna and the Apocalypse is a high school zombie musical set at Christmas. Which, obviously, sounds awesome. It sounds so awesome though, you’re probably thinking there’s no way it could love up to that expectation. But I’m happy to reveal that Anna and the Apocalypse lives up to your expectations and then some. It’s…

Bill Murray Wept With Joy When He Saw the Groundhog Day Musical for the First Time Bill Murray Wept With Joy When He Saw the Groundhog Day Musical for the First Time

Bill Murray knows Groundhog Day. He’s been living it for years. You’d figure that it’d be all glad-handing and cut-ups when the beloved actor saw the musical version of his hit 1993 movie. But, while the jokes did happen, it was the tears that probably took everybody by surprise.

King Kong Is Coming to Broadway as a Musical King Kong Is Coming to Broadway as a Musical

With Kong: Skull Island still fresh in the pop culture consciousness, the giant ape has just announced another star turn—though it’s unrelated to his activities on the big screen. King Kong, an animatronics-laden musical written by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’s Jack Thorne, is heading to Broadway.

ABC Is Staging a Bizarre Little Mermaid Musical Spectacular This Fall ABC Is Staging a Bizarre Little Mermaid Musical Spectacular This Fall

Live action musicals on network TV are all the rage these days, and now ABC is entering the genre with its own weird mishmash version of The Little Mermaid. But this version will be a two-hour special event that somehow promises to meld scenes from the animated Disney classic with live musical performances by an…

There's Actually a Reason to Like Gaston in the New Beauty and the Beast There's Actually a Reason to Like Gaston in the New Beauty and the Beast

In the original Beauty and the Beast, the reason everyone loves Gaston is basically because he’s “hot.” (I put that in quotes because a real-life person with those proportions would be TERRIFYING.) But Luke Evans says there’s more to the good-looking villain in the new live-action adaptation than what was on screen in…

How Does Emily Blunt's Mary Poppins Compare to the Original? How Does Emily Blunt's Mary Poppins Compare to the Original?

Disney’s sequel to the classic story of a magical nanny will be in theaters next year, but now we have our first look at Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins. And she’s filling the big shoes that Julie Andrews left pretty well.

Disney Finally Gives Us a Glimpse of Josh Gad Singing 'Gaston' in Beauty and the Beast Disney Finally Gives Us a Glimpse of Josh Gad Singing 'Gaston' in Beauty and the Beast

Of all the things we’ve seen from this film, it has been a constant frustration to me, personally, that we hadn’t yet been treated to what I was certain would be the highlight of this film: Josh Gad, as LeFou, singing “Gaston.” And now it’s finally here.

Check Out All the Movies That La La Land References

Sara Preciado made a lovely video that places scenes from La La Land right next to other scenes from musicals and movies that La La Land was obviously referencing. It’s fun to watch (and I say that as a person who doesn’t really get into musicals) because it reminds you of all the peppiness and cheeriness that musical…

Silly Video Edits Together Popular Movie Characters to Make Them Sing in the Rain

Ever imagine a movie scene where Gene Kelly is singing in the rain while Neo and Agent Smith fight and Spider-Man does his upside down kiss with Mary Jane? What about if Tony Leung from The Grandmaster, Jet Li from Lethal Weapon 4, T-Rex from Jurassic Park, and replicant Roy Batty from Blade Runner all make an…

The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s legions of fans know that the iconic cult movie opens with a giant pair of disembodied lips crooning the theme song, “Science Fiction/Double Feature.” But the first five minutes of Fox’s upcoming production of the musical have arrived, and it turns out its opening is a lot more literal.
