Teaser Trailer – Respect (2020)

This certainly lives up to it being a teaser trailer and gives you just enough to raise the interest. Early shout for Jennifer Hudson to be Oscar nominated for her portrayal of Aretha Franklin? Yes, I am going there from this trailer! (Maybe even Best Picture nominee as well, Oscars love a biopic!). We also got the first poster!

Trailer: Cats (2019)

The second trailer for Cats has landed and I have to admit that although I am super excited for the film regardless of what everyone is saying about the film. I found the first trailer to be better than this one though. But I guess if you haven’t seen the stage show before then it gives you a little bit about the story (although it doesn’t really have much of a story).

Trailer: Cats (2019)

The musical Cats was one of the longest running of all time in the West End and has countless tours over the years, as well as being on Broadway. I’ve seen the show three times over the years and do enjoy it, with the impressive dancing and memorable songs.

A film version was always going to be a little strange in a different way really as making people look and act like Cats isn’t exactly normal. I know the initial reactions to this trailer haven’t been good but I am actually rather impressed with the way they have done it. Plus we get Jennifer Hudson singing Memory and that is going to be amazing!

 

Music Stars at the Movies

I have recently re-watched the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born and I then received this amazing infographic from Betway with fantastic research around awards and music stars which just seemed like perfect timing. While Lady Gaga has been nominated for her amazing turn in A Star Is Born, the transition from music to film is not always a smooth one. This makes for interesting reading in all honesty, to show that they are either a massive hit or a masssive flop!

Musical Moments – And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going

Having seen Dreamgirls on Friday night I thought it was more than worth having this as the Musical Moment this Monday! With three different versions of the song, considering Amber Riley aka Mercedes from Glee was in the show first here is the clip of her performing from Graham Norton just before Dreamgirls opened in the West End.
