Alanis Morissette Joins James Corden To Rework 'Ironic' For The Tinder And Snapchat Generation


Alanis Morissette James Corden

Alanis Morissette’s 1996 hit ‘Ironic’ has taken a lot of flack over the years for some of its less-than-ironic lyrics (is rain on your wedding day really ironic?). But on Monday night’s edition of James Corden's 'Late Late Show', the song was given a modern re-working that we can all get behind.

Alanis MorissetteAlanis Morissette has reworked ‘Ironic’ for the 21st century.

Wearing in a red beanie hat, resembling the one she wore in the song’s video, Morissette sat down for an acoustic rendition of the hit, with a few different lyrics. ’An old friend sending you a Facebook request and only find out they're racist after you accept,' Morissette began, before she was joined by host James Corden dressed in a matching outfit.

Kill Your Friends Review

Weak

First-time director Owen Harris boldly attempts a comedy even blacker than American Psycho or Filth with this 1990s Britpop satire, but he never quite gets the tone right. Based on the bestselling novel by John Niven (who also wrote the screenplay), the film lacks a single character the audience can identify with or root for. And since it's impossible to care about the slimy anti-hero, the movie ends up merely feeling mean-spirited.

The slimeball at the centre is Steven (Nicholas Hoult), an A&R man at Unigram Records at the peak of Britpop in 1997. He's had a run of hot new artists, and doesn't let his loathing of pop music slow him down, tormenting his assistant Rebecca (Georgia King), his faithful scout Darren (Craig Roberts) and his matey colleague Roger (James Corden). He's also so determined to get a promotion that he takes things to violent extremes, then becomes even more annoyed when the job goes to his hated rival Antony (Tom Riley). So now all he has left is the search for another vile musician he can turn into the next big thing.

The film has a sleek, snaky energy to it that nicely recreates the cut-throat atmosphere of the period. And Niven has a lot to say about how the music business abuses truly talented artists while promoting inept stars like Steven's aspiring girl band Songbirds. Essentially, this film is a full-on assault on a British society where self-absorbed jerks climb the corporate ladder because they're ambitious, not because they're actually good at anything. The one sense of balance in the story comes from a cop (Edward Hogg), who's investigating a murder but really wants Steven to help him launch his own musical career. In other words, the film is shouting its themes at the top of its voice, rather than letting them hit the target with quiet precision.

Watch Stevie Wonder Make James Corden Cry In Most Epic 'Carpool Karaoke' Yet


James Corden Stevie Wonder

James Corden has already delivered many memorial moments and superstar guests since taking over the ‘Late Late Show’ earlier this year. But the latest edition of his ‘Carpool Karaoke’ segment may have just delivered the show’s most epic moment yet, as the host was joined by singing legend, Stevie Wonder.

James CordenCorden was joined by Stevie Wonder for the latest edition of ‘Carpool Karaoke’.

The segment started with Wonder in the driving seat with Corden nervously asking the singing superstar if he was sure he had driving license. Wonder then told a relieved Corden that he didn't in fact have his licence with him, before accusing the host of stealing it (in a British accent of course).

Lady In The Van - Alternative Trailer


Miss Shepherd is a highly educated elderly woman living off barely anything in a small dilapidated van. She asks for nothing from her community, other than to be allowed her peace and to have a place to park her van. Constantly being moved by authorities, she finds herself taking up residence on Alan Bennett's road, much to the displeasure of his house proud neighbours. Despite her prickly disposition and shameless boldness, Bennett - a man of more timid and awkward nature - takes an immediate shine to Miss Shepherd, offering her his driveway to park her vehicle on a temporary basis. Soon, though, just a few weeks turns into fifteen long years as this impoverished musical scholar and this lowly gentleman of humble background become unlikely yet inseparable friends - a friendship rocked by Miss Shepherd's eventual ill health which soon strikes a sadness in the heart of the whole town.

Kill Your Friends - Teaser Trailer


It's the mid 90's and the music scene in the UK is booming. Excess is the word of the decade and the music industry runs on a steady supply of drugs, booze and huge amounts of money. Steven Stelfox is a young A&R manager at one of London's biggest labels but in reality it's quite by chance that he's made it. It's a dog-eat-dog industry and when your ideas run out there's a good chance you'll be cast aside. Not wishing to be the next for the chopping block, Stelfox takes his career ambitions to a whole new level. How well would you survive when even your friends are your enemies?

Since its release in 2008, John Niven's book 'Kill Your Friends' has become a cult classic. Niven himself had worked at many record labels and inspired some of the themes behind the story. Whilst the story is fiction and no one was actually killed, many people in the industry draw many parallels to what actually happened during those years.

Kill Your Friends is the first major release for director Owen Harris and sees Nicholas Hoult & James Corden take two of the lead roles.

Into The Woods Review


Excellent

It's taken a long time for this stage musical to make it to the big screen, and while director Rob Marshall once again fails to give the story a sharp focus (see also Chicago and Nine), he at least lets the music and characters shine. Originally staged on Broadway in 1987, this musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a gleeful mash-up of fairy tales that continues on past the "happily ever after", eventually turning rather dark and emotional.

Once upon a time, there was a Baker and his Wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt) who learn that they can't have children because the Witch (Meryl Streep) next door has cursed them. She offers to break the spell if they collect a cow, a cape, a slipper and a lock of hair. Meanwhile, Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) annoys his mother (Tracey Ullman) by selling the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans; Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) dodges a leery Wolf (Johnny Depp) following her through the woods; Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) sneaks to the festival to meet the Prince (Chris Pine) against the wishes of her nasty stepmum (Christine Baranski); and Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) defies her mother by letting her hair down for a Prince (Billy Magnussen). After knotting together, each plot strand resolves happily. Until the next day.

This is very much a story of two halves, with the sharp, snappy, hilarious first act contrasting strongly against the rather disturbingly grim and grisly second act, as everyone's story unravels to reveal each character's deep neediness. What makes this show so clever is the way it undermines the usual fairy-tale happiness of most stories, cautioning that this artifice is actually a problem for children. While the songs are all clever and thoroughly engaging, none of them is particularly hummable on first listen, but each is packed with witty wordplay and serious subtext that gets under the skin.

Begin Again Review


Excellent

Fans of the Oscar-winning 2006 Irish film Once (and its more recent stage-musical adaptation) may find this American drama a little derivative, but it's a strong story in its own right. This time writer-director John Carney has assembled a starry cast to nicely capture the rhythms of New York's streets. And the songs, while not quite as integral to the story, are gorgeous.

The opening sequence sets up the story from two perspectives, as music producer Dan (Mark Ruffalo) hears songwriter Greta (Keira Knightley) reluctantly perform at a bar's open-mic night. Both of these people are at their rope's end: always seeking offbeat talent, Dan is on the outs with his record label partner (Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def), and wants to reconnect with his estranged wife and teen daughter (Catherine Keener and Hailee Steinfeld). Meanwhile, Greta has just been dumped by her rising pop-star boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine), who got his big break from a song she wrote. To stop her moping, her pal Steve (James Corden) encourages her to start singing her own songs. In Greta, Dan sees the kind of artist he longs to make records with, so with nothing to lose the two set out to record her songs at locations around the city for a new album.

Like Once, this is a love story that doesn't actually involve romance: these two people need each other to discover their life's passions. So Ruffalo and Knightley get the chance to create some terrific chemistry without much of a threat that they'll fall for each other. Indeed, each has other fish to fry, as they try to sort out their emotional connections elsewhere. Their flirty friendship plays out in a fresh, effortless way that generates some complex emotions and ideas. Ruffalo is always great at creating these kinds of loose, slightly hapless characters, while Knightley delivers an even more earthy performance, letting her own sparky personality emerge on-screen for the first time along with some serious skill as a singer. And the supporting cast add texture in just the right places.

Dan Mulligan is a former record executive who has just been spectacularly dismissed by the label he was employed by. Now penniless with nowhere to go and no-one to talk to apart from his hormonal teenage daughter Violet, he is desperate to find some musicians and get his career back on track. Meanwhile, a young singer-songwriter named Gretta has just been dumped by her co-musician boyfriend Dave after he manages to secure a major label deal for himself. Depressed and alone, she finds herself performing solo on a stage at a small bar where Dan happens to be drinking. Captivated, he decides to take her under his wing and help her achieve the success she so craves with his own unusual methods, and both find themselves transforming as people in almost every way.

Formerly entitled 'Can A Song Save Your Life?', 'Begin Again' is a touching comedy drama with a thrilling all star cast. It has been written and directed by John Carney ('Once', 'On the Edge', 'Zonad', 'The Rafters'), and is the story of how music can change many people for the better - and, sometimes, for the worst. The film is due for UK release this summer on July 11th 2014.

Harry Styles Is Victim Of James Corden Phone Prank - This Time He Was Ready


James Corden Harry Styles Michael McIntyre The 1975 Nick Grimshaw

Styles wasn't about to get shown up for his gullibility again. Harry Styles has become yet another victim-of-choice for a phone prankster after having made headlines with his embarrassingly gullible display at the hands of The 1975's Matt Healy and Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. This time, Styles was chosen as the target for James Corden's hilarious Send-To-All prank on The Michael McIntyre Chat Show on Monday (14th April).

Harry Styles
Harry Styles Was Poised For A Witty Retort When James Corden Prank Texted Him.

The send-to-all game involved James sending a cheeky text to everyone on his contacts list to see who responded. The 32 year-old entertainer wrote "Me and you, lapdancing. Are you in or out? Come on, let's do this." Having learned his lesson from last month's blunder, the One Direction singer wasn't taking any chances and instead replied "Great, but what is it with you and lapdancing? What happened the last time we did that wasn't pretty."

Steve Carell Had Difficulty Filming 'Anchorman 2' Because Will Ferrell Was Too Funny For Him


Steve Carell Will Ferrell Christina Applegate Paul Rudd Olly Murs James Corden David Koechner

Actor Steve Carell had difficulty working on the 'Anchorman' sequel because he found Will Ferrell so funny it was ''almost impossible'' to work with him. The 51-year-old 'Despicable Me' actor apparently had no quarrels with immediately signing on for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues', as the 2004 original was the "best fun" he's ever had. On the flip side, it made his job incredibly difficult, as he was almost unable to film certain scenes as he struggled to keep his composure.

In an interview with 'Bang Showbiz' at 'Anchorman 2''s premiere at The Odeon, Leicester Square, London, the 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' star explained that: 'There's a scene we did in a lighthouse with Ron and it's probably the scene I laughed the hardest at. Will was so especially funny that day, it was almost impossible to get it [the scene] done.

One Chance Trailer


When Paul Potts, an opera singer, auditioned for the first series of 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2007, he blew everyone away with his incredibly powerful vocals. Going on to win the show was a surprise to no-one, and it was not just his soulful arias that moved audiences, but his own emotional life story. Growing up he was frequently bullied and found consolation only in that of operatic music. Later, he met his devoted wife Julie-Ann Cooper who relentlessly encouraged him to perform and attend an opera school in Italy. His lack of confidence in himself caused most other people not to believe in him, but he took a brave step in leaving his job as a shop manager and giving 'BGT' a good shot - a decision that would change his life beyond recognition forever.

A week after Sir Paul McCartney's latest solo album, New, debuted, the brand new video for track 'Queenie Eye' premieres today (October 24, 2013).

The song is named after and draws inspiration from a childhood game McCartney used to play in Liverpool. "Queenie eye, queenie eye, who's got the ball? It isn't in my pocket.

Is Paul Potts' Movie 'One Chance' A Festival Classic In The Making?


Paul Potts James Corden

Picture the scene if you will. It's Christmas Eve. The kids are going crazy, running around, watching the skies. You've just poured yourself another brandy and, oh look, One Chance is just about to start on BBC1. You know, the Paul Potts movie with that fella from Gavin & Stacey in it.

It's going to happen. The movie - which hits cinemas in the UK on Friday (October 18, 2013) - is likely to become one of the festive feel-good movies that all the family can sit down and enjoy. 

It stars James Corden as Potts, a bullied shop assistant by day and amateur opera singer by night. UK audiences will be familiar with the story. Potts became an instant singing phenomenon after appearing on Simon Cowell's ITV show Britain's Got Talent.

James Corden Didn't Become World Class Tenor For 'One Chance'. Deal With It.


James Corden

The British media went into frenzy early on Tuesday (September 10, 2013) when James Corden had the guile to admit that he didn't provide the opera for his new movie One Chance, based on the story of Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

Although he's known to be a competent singer (he has just begun filming the Hollywood musical The Woods), Corden confessed that the vocals heard in David Frankel's new movie were provided by Paul Potts himself. Which sort of makes sense really.

"It was very, very straightforward - I would pretend to be singing opera, and then Paul would go into the studio and loop to my mouth. I hope I haven't given it away too much, but that's basically what happened," the actor told press including the Independent at the Toronto Film Festival this week.

America's Remake Of Gavin And Stacey, 'Us And Them' Previews Trailer


Alexis Bledel Jason Ritter James Corden

We’re already grimacing at the prospect of an American remake of The Inbetweeners, but us Brits should perhaps be more worried that the US is also making what is effectively a Stateside version of one of our most British of comedies, Gavin & Stacey.

The trailer for Us And Them has been revealed and we’re really not sure about it, even though it does star Alexis Bledel and Jason Ritter. Ok, so the American Office ended up being a surprise success, and we have to hand it to them for pulling it off, but an American Inbetweeners? Gavin & Stacey? They go too far. As usual it looks like the comedy is going to lose all its subtlety with everything glammed up somewhat in what in the UK was traditionally a pretty humble, sweet natured comedy even as it made stars of Matt Horne and James Corden.

Last night’s Brits ceremony could well have been the blandest Brits in years. Aside from a frisson of post-breakup tension between Harry Styles and Taylor Swift (who took to the stage wearing a sexy black hot-pant jumpsuit with gold embellishments) there was little in the way of shock, surprises, or backstage gossip (or if there is, it hasn’t made it’s way down to us yet!).
