Spike Lee: Why I Turned 'She's Gotta Have It' Into a TV Series

Spike Lee: Why I Turned 'She's Gotta Have It' Into a TV Series
"I want you to know the only reason I'm consenting to this is because I wish to clear my name." With those words, a twentysomething Brooklyn artist named Nola Darling introduced herself to the world – and, in the process, so did Spike Lee, a prodigiously talented twentysomething writer-director who invented the character for She's Gotta Have It, which hit theaters in the summer of 1986. Speaking directly to the camera, Nola (played by Tracy Camilla Johns) laid out her life's fundamental dilemma: how to be a free-thinking, independent woman who refused

It was date night for Michael Jordan in NYC on Thursday. Hot wife? Check. Chauffeur driven SUV? Check. Mj's trademark overly baggy dad pants? Check. Expensive, rare Air Jordans? Of course.

Space Jam 2 director provides an update on the sequel

Back in May of last year, it was officially announced that Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6, Star Trek Beyond) would be directing NBA star LeBron James in a sequel to 1996’s live-action/animation hybrid Space Jam, and now the filmmaker has provided an update on the project’s status during an interview with Slash Film.

“Warner Brothers has been great,” said Lin. “I feel like it’s been very precious. Everybody at the studio’s been calling, ‘Let’s go, let’s go’ and I’m like [it’s] not right yet. To me, the challenge is we have actors who are also professional athletes, so schedule is something that is tough. I’ve been really wanting to push that genre, but to do that you need the right amount of time. So there’s a logistical challenge but also creatively, to do a sequel 20 years later with a new cast and also to be able to,

Air Bud Turns 20: How Buddy the Wonder Dog's Legacy Changed Family Movies Forever

Air Bud Turns 20: How Buddy the Wonder Dog's Legacy Changed Family Movies Forever
The '90s were a magical time for basketball. We had Michael Jordan, the Dream Team, Space Jam, short shorts, snazzy sneakers and the Jock Jams soundtrack. And of course, there was Air Bud, the unforgettable family film about a golden retriever with a love for the game. He didn't dribble—but he did drool, and he scored a spot in the hearts of kids all around the world. It was 20 years ago today back in 1997 that Air Bud premiered in theaters. It was an independent movie based on a real-life dog named Buddy who had risen to fame thanks to his ability to shoot baskets. Yes, that's right. CGI was in its infancy back then, but Air Bud didn't utilize any special effects to show Buddy playing the...

Video: 6 of the Best Film Footwear

There’s nothing like a comfortable pair of shoes, but some characters don’t just stop at comfort, they love a bit of style and it seems sports brands are all too keen to help out with that. We thought we’d take a look at some of the freshest footwear ever to grace the silver screen. So, lace up and kick back sneaker-heads, it’s time for a cinematic crep check.

With Easter approaching this weekend, there is no better time to spread some love for our favourite bunnies.

Bunnies have made a major impression on film. Some of the most iconic cartoon characters we know and cherish are fun-loving bunnies. You can usually find them chomping on carrots, being unusually tardy, and a lot of the time they're up to no good.

As adorable as some of our favourite bunnies are, there have also been many instances where bunnies have given us nightmares, but it doesn't mean we have any less love for them.

Whether they're being creepy, sly, or sweet, here are ten of the best bunnies to hop, jump, and skip across the silver screen. Check out the list below!

I Love Al Franken Still Using SNL To Fry People Like Neil Gorsuch in the Senate

Long before Al Franken was in politics he was one of the most successful SNL writers the show has ever seen. While he dabbled a bit onscreen and even had his own movie based on an SNL character Stuart Smalley (p.s. the skit with him and Michael Jordan still remains one of the best ever), Franken was always better behind the scenes. However, now that he’s in the world of politics he has absolutely no shame in bringing up his past to prove a point. Today was such a day where he annihilated Neil Gorsuch in front of every one

‘Abstract: The Art of Design’ Review: All The Season 1 Episodes, Ranked

‘Abstract: The Art of Design’ Review: All The Season 1 Episodes, Ranked
Abstract: The Art of Design” is not necessarily a show we’d recommend for binge-viewing. The new Netflix series, streaming now following its Sundance 2017 premiere, is far from bad. Executive produced by Morgan Neville, the documentarians assembled to capture the spotlighted subjects have done a masterful job, by and large, of highlighting the unique sort of artistry at work here. However, episode by episode, every installment strikes such a similar tone and mood that to truly appreciate the difference in aethestics and disciplines on display, you’ll want to space them out.

You might also favor certain installments over others, whether it be because of subject matter or the execution itself. We reviewed the first two installments last month, finding it to be a fascinating approach to the importance of design we might otherwise take for granted. But now that we’ve been able to see all eight episodes, we have our favorites.

Space Jam Honest Trailer Slam Dunks on Michael Jordan Classic

Space Jam Honest Trailer Slam Dunks on Michael Jordan Classic
Last year, fans celebrated the Space Jam 20th Anniversary, with the movie returning to the big screen for a limited time, as news started to spread about a potential sequel with current NBA superstar LeBron James. It's a whole new year now, though, and it seems like a perfect time for an Honest Trailer, to tear this divisive movie to shreds. This four-minute video tackles everything wrong with the animated movie, including Michael Jordan's lack of acting skills, the massive plot holes in the story, and much more.

This week's video is part of Screen Junkies' "Fan Appreciation Month," where they'll create Honest Trailers for the movies fans voted for, with Space Jam the third selection in the special series. The video's narrator, Jon Bailey, jokingly calls Space Jam the "Citizen Kane of live-action animated hybrid basketball films," which "blew the minds of every kid who saw it." Unfortunately,

Watch Space Jam Monstars Return to Battle Bugs Bunny and Blake Griffin

Watch Space Jam Monstars Return to Battle Bugs Bunny and Blake Griffin
Well, it might not be Space Jam 2, but it makes a good case for why the sequel should exist. Bugs Bunny and his court side nemeses, the dreaded MonStars, are back in a new commercial for Foot Locker. Only, Bugs Bunny isn't facing off against his alien challengers this time. Instead, he's taking a job at Foot Locker, and outfits a group of teens to take on the dreaded bad guys in the latest Jordan merch.

This first commercial is aiming to do quite a lot in its extended 90 second runtime. There's no Michael Jordan insight. And it seems even LeBron James, the star of the impending Space Jam 2, has been benched. Instead, we get Blake Griffin suiting up in the iconic Space Jam jersey. And he gets some nice interaction with Bugs, as the two riff on the old 'Who'd you expect, Elmer Fudd?' line. The

President Barack Obama's time in the White House is coming to an end, but before he says goodbye and welcomes in President-elect Donald Trump, the 55-year-old politician is honoring those who he believes have helped push America forward and inspired millions around the world one last time.

On Tuesday, Potus presented 21 actors, musicians, athletes and innovators with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in the White House's East Room.

"Everybody on this stage has touched me in a very powerful, very personal way,” Obama said in his opening speech. "These are folks who have helped make me who I am."

Among the honorees were Ellen DeGeneres, who couldn't hold back her tears as she accepted her prestigious medal.

Newswire: President Obama referenced Crying Jordan and Space Jam during the Medal Of Freedom awards

As the last days of America’s first Cool President wind to a close, Barack Obama took one last chance to remind us what we’re about to lose, giving a warm, joke-filled speech honoring this year’s crop of Presidential Medal Of Freedom honorees. Starting with a statement that this year’s crop of notables—including Diana Ross, Native American rights advocate Elouise P. Cobell, Bill and Melinda Gates, and a number of athletes and actors—was “a particularly impressive class,” Obama not only managed to refer to Tom Hanks as “America’s Dad,” but also to crack some jokes about Space Jam.

You can watch the full version of Obama’s speech right here (it starts at 50:50 or so in the video), but a few highlights include his praise of Bill and Melinda Gates as “impatient optimists,” his description of Michael Jordan as “the guy from ...

The 58-year-old comedian was scheduled to receive a Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday, but was denied entry because she forgot her ID. DeGeneres tweeted a hilarious picture of herself sitting on a wooden bench outdoors, explaining her situation.

Space Jam 2 Almost Happened with Tiger Woods
Yesterday, Warner Bros.' live-action/animation hybrid Space Jam celebrated its 20th Anniversary, which comes on the heels of the long-awaited sequel Space Jam 2. Current NBA superstar LeBron James is attached to star in that sequel. Over the past few days, original Space Jam director Joe Pytka was doing press for the 20th Anniversary, and he revealed that there was almost an early version of the sequel that starred golfing legend Tiger Woods, which never came to pass. The filmmaker also made the surprising revelation that indie filmmaker Spike Lee almost worked on the script for the original Space Jam.

Back in August, video surfaced from a basketball camp where original Space Jam star and NBA legend Michael Jordan was asked who he thinks should take over for Space Jam 2. The basketball star replied that he'd choose Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin as the lead, insetad of LeBron James.
