Movie theater exhibitors are getting a preview of upcoming blockbusters at CinemaCon, where films like "Fate of the Furious," "Blade Runner 2049" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" wowed the crowds. Meanwhile, a war of words has been raging among Sean Hannity, Ted Koppel and Bill O'Reilly (and Rep. Maxine Waters, too).
Here's what's new and interesting in entertainment and the arts:
- 'All or Nothing' will return for Season 2, with the Rams in the spotlight
- Beyoncé as Nala in 'The Lion King'? It could happen
- Teaser trailer for Season 7 of 'Game of Thrones' is here
- Robin Thicke and Paula Patton near custody agreement
- Vin Diesel and Charlize Theron surprise CinemaCon with 'Fate of the Furious' screening
It's time to go back to detention.
Film Independent at LACMA will announce Wednesday morning that Jack Antonoff (of the pop band Bleachers) and "The Breakfast Club" are the next pairing for "Bring the Noise."
The series enlists modern musicians to select a classic film and replace the original score with their own live accompaniment.
The first installation of "Bring the Noise" featured Seth Bogart (Hunx and His Punx) replacing the score for "Welcome to the Dollhouse" in January, and dance-pop band Yacht took on the score for "Alien" last week.
Antonoff's musical interpretation of 1985's "The Breakfast Club" is slated for April 1.
"I chose 'The Breakfast Club' because I think about that film often when I write," Antonoff told The Times. "There are certain films and feelings that remind me of where I'm from.
"I grew up in suburban New Jersey in a similar state of strange boredom as 'The Breakfast Club.' I constantly thought about getting out, and that feeling is so present in this film," he added. "A lot of my world now is looking back at that time period from different vantage points."
"Bring the Noise" is sponsored by Audi, KCRW and the Hollywood Foreign Press.
Tickets will first be made available to Film Independent members, with general public tickets sales beginning March 23.
