ROLAND EMMERICH TO DIRECT JEREMY IRVINE IN 'STONEWALL' GAY RIGHTS DRAMA. TRAILERS FOR 'WALKING ON SUNSHINE' WITH LEONA LEWIS, 'WISH I WAS HERE' WITH ZACH BRAFF, KATE HUDSON

ROLAND EMMERICH TO HELM
JEREMY IRVINE IN 'STONEWALL'
Well, this is certainly an unusual project for Roland Emmerich, the king of blockbusters: according to Deadline he will helm gay rights drama STONEWALL which has just tied Jeremy Irvine to star in the lead role. The film is about the 1969 police raid at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a mafia owned bar that was a gathering place for gays and transgenders. It became the flashpoint for the gay rights movement, a galvanizing event that is considered a touchstone even today in the fight for equal rights for the gay and transgender population. The story will focus on a young man’s political awakening in the backdrop of those riots. You can currently watch Jeremy in THE RAILWAY MAN next to Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, while Emmerich is prepping INDEPENDENCE DAY2

'WISH I WAS HERE' TRAILER
WITH ZACH BRAFF, KATE HUDSON
Today's trailer is for Zach Braff's beautiful drama which hits theatres this July. WISH I WAS HERE tells story of Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he'd always dreamed he'd be as a little kid. When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them. The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn't find.


'WALKING ON SUNSHINE'
 TRAILER WITH LEONA LEWIS
Our second trailer for today is for the big screen debut of beloved British pop diva Leona Lewis WALKING ON SUNSHINE! Featuring tones of delightful 80's pop music hits and deeply  delightful hunky nudity, this fun movie tells the story of  Maddie, who has invited her sister Taylor to her wedding to Raf, but she's unaware that Raf is Taylor's ex-holiday flame and the love of her life! Greg Wise and Katy Brand also star. The movie will walk into UK cinemas June 27th!

  2. Yes, I heard about the plans for a Stonewall movie. There was a made-for-TV movie a few years back which wasn't terrific, I seem to recall. I hope they get a good screenplay written for this latest attempt.

  7. Walking On Sunshine is one my favorite 80's songs.

    It takes a special kind of person to homeschool their kids. Looks like a cute movie.

    1. as a teacher I do not support homeschooling kids, it's wrong on too many levels, but I always like to listen to people's experiences with it since we, thankfully, don't have it here

  8. I'll have to check out Stonewall as I don't know anything about the incident.

    Wish I Were Here-hahahahaha. I home schooled, but there was no soundtrack and no California sun. Jesus Christ, this fool doesn't know who he is and what is purpose is by age 35, he should just drown himself in the ocean and fuck the movie :)

  11. Love me the 80's tunes! I'll see Walking as my guilty pleasure. ;) Love Zach's story, it looks very charming and heartwarming.

    I'm so happy about Stonewall. It is about time the story was brought to the big screen. And I love that they cast Jeremy Irvine.
