High Fashion Controversies

15 February 2017 1:38 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For as long as there has been a fashion industry, there have been fashion controversies.

To be sure, taking risks is a necessity when it comes to the always-evolving art of design, but some key players in the fashion world have stood accused of pushing certain boundaries all too far. Their questionable choices have often become springboards for complicated discussions of cultural appropriation, beauty standards, race and everything in-between.

These nine moments in particular definitely got people talking — and arguing — about how these complex issues can and do play out on runways and fashion spreads.

Kate McKinnon Is the New Ms. Frizzle for Netflix’s ‘Magic School Bus’ Revival

8 February 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seatbelts, everyone: Kate McKinnon will be your new Ms. Frizzle.

The “SNL” and “Ghostbusters” star will be voicing Ms. Frizzle for Netflix’s revival of the classic kids cartoon “The Magic School Bus,” titled “The Magic School Bus Rides Again.” Lily Tomlin — currently starring in Netflix’s “Grace & Frankie” opposite Jane Fonda — had voiced the character in the show’s original incarnation, which earned several Emmy nominations and a win for Tomlin.

The “reimagining” was first announced by Netflix in 2014, and conceived then as 26 episodes made using CG instead of traditional animation. “Magic School Bus” was just one of several Scholastic Books titles optioned by Netflix at the time, including “Clifford the Big Red Dog” and “Goosebumps.”

As with many a Netflix revival, “Magic School Bus” resides in the sweet spot of nostalgia-evoking series and children’s programming. Shows like “Fuller House” and the “Gilmore Girls” revival, along with originals like “Stranger Things,” have »

8 February 2017 5:54 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

German comedy and Oscar-nominated Toni Erdmann took everyone by surprise last year, largely because it shows that the Germans really do have a delightful sense of humour. Only five days after its general cinema release in the UK, an English language remake has been announced.

So who could be taking up the helm of the embarrassing parent Toni Winfried (played in the German language version by Peter Simonischek)? None other than Jack Nicholson, who will be coming out of a self-inflicted retirement after his seven-year hiatus from the movie world. Playing opposite him as his daughter will be Ghostbusters’ very own Kristen Wiig, with rumours circulating that Paramount Pictures have acquired the rights for the remake – this has yet to be confirmed.

The word on the street is that the remake was actually the idea of Nicholson’s after becoming a fan of »

Amy Schumer & Goldie Hawn do some serious bonding in the new trailer for Snatched

7 February 2017 9:16 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It’s always nice to see a Mother and Daughter combo doing some serious bonding but Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn take it to the next level in the new trailer for Snatched. In this new film the pair give their kidnappers a run for their money while on an exotic holiday.

Related: Snatched Trailers

Snatched marks Hawn’s first role since 2002’s The Banger Sisters and this new film features an odd couple who have only their comedic roles in common. So whose bright idea was it to team up the once well known sex symbol actress Goldie Hawn and the outspoken, controversial comedian Amy Schumer as a mother and daughter bad-ass duo? That would be Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters director Paul Feig – who acts as producer on Snatched – as well as Schumer herself who co-wrote the outrageous comedy alongside her sister Kim Caramele and Ghostbusters and Spy writer, »

7 February 2017 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The moment 20th Century Fox announced plans to bring together Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn for a mother-comedy comedy, we were enthralled.

Following the success of her hit sketch show Inside Amy Schumer, the actress really turned heads and raised eyebrows in 2015 through Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck, a film she wrote and starred in as the irreverent Amy Townsend. The award nominations came pouring in, and Schumer cemented her status as one of Hollywood’s bankable leading ladies in a flash.

For Goldie Hawn, the screen legend is poised to make her first film appearance in more than 15 years for SnatchedJonathan Levine’s family comedy that ships Schumer and Hawn off to some far-flung exotic location. A relaxing holiday and some much-needed bonding time are on the cards, though the Middletons’ dream vacation soon morphs into a holiday from hell after they’re kidnapped by a band of crooks. »
