Melania Trump Marks Bullying Prevention Month With ‘Wonder’ Screening

Following her recent four-nation tour of Africa and a day trip to a Philadelphia hospital, First Lady Melania Trump continues to raise her profile.
This afternoon, FLOTUS ushered 20 sixth-grade students into the White House’s family theater for a private screening of “Wonder.” This being National Bullying Prevention Month, the Digital Pioneers Academy classmates were given a silver-screen lesson about a boy who is bullied for his facial deformity. Released last year, the flick features Owen Wilson, Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay.
The First Lady’s office indicated that the movie’s message of kindness was the reason she personally selected it even though she had never watched it, according to a press pool report. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos sat in on the matinée at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. While students chomped on popcorn, the First Lady introduced herself and welcomed them to the White House. She also thanked DeVos for being there, and then asked the students how they show their peers kindness, the pool report said.
“As you may know, October is National Bullying Prevention Month and I encourage everybody to be kind to each other, to treat each other with respect in everyday life and social media. Can you do that? Yes? Very

Kanye West Hosted ‘Honor Up’ Screening In L.A., Dame Dash Appreciative

Kanye West and Dame Dash never did buy Karmaloop, but they did make a movie together. Yeezy hosted a private screening for the flick, Honor Up, in Los Angeles, and it was lit. 

Clips from the screening, Pusha T was in attendance, have made it online, including Dash bigging up West for the look.

“This n*gga showed out, made merch, looked out, showcased my platform on some honorable sh*t,” Dame said. “Sh*t is so real right now. Good looking, my n*gga. I gave him like fourteen hugs and pounds, too.”

All Yeezy had to say was “Love.”

Good to see smiling Yeezy, with a new baby girl named Chicago at home, out and about and flourishing, after suffering his now infamous mental break. You know that new album is going to be fiyah.

Honor Up is in theaters February 16. More on the flip.

Ice Cube, Ludacris, Usher, B.O.B, Cast, & More Attend ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Atlanta Screening

Universal Pictures hosted an advance screening of their new film, ‘STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON’, on Friday, July 24th at Regal Atlantic Station in Atlanta, along with a Q&A with cast members O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, producer Ice Cube, and director F. Gary Gray. The Q&A was moderated by executive producer, Will Packer.

The screening was well attended by music’s top celebrities and influencers including: Usher, Ludacris, B.O.B., 2 Chainz, Big Krit, David Banner, Da Brat, Lil’ Scrappy, DC Young Fly, Polow Da Don and more. ‘Straight Outta Compton’ hits theaters Friday, August 14, 2015!

The Q&A, moderated by executive producer Will Packer, gave insight into what it was like for the casting process and what the process of preparation and executing the roles consisted of.

Ice Cube spoke first about his feelings on the film,

“Having our story told in a masterful way by F. Gary Gray and to see my son get an opportunity like he got when I did ‘Boys in The Hood’. As a parent you want your kids to step up at the moment of truth, and when they do it you are just overjoyed. I’m on cloud 9, 10, 11, and 12.”

F. Gary Gray shared that the movie was personal for him because he grew up in the same neighborhood with Ice Cube, and he started his career with him with ‘Friday’;, and he was there when Ice Cube left N.W.A and went solo. He shared that he did several of Ice Cube’s solo music videos. He also shared that all of his movies prior prepared him for this film, and he believes this is his best work.

O’Shea Jackson Jr. shared that the film had a level of importance to him that was unmatchable.

“It was about N.W.A and brotherhood but more importantly it was about my family’s legacy. It became my obsession. I couldn’t let someone else have that and fumble.”

Will Packer asked Ice Cube what it was like to have his biopic come to the big screen and be portrayed by his son. He also asked Ice Cube what that did to his psyche.

“I knew my son was in good hands because we did a lot of pre-production. F. Gary Gray is a masterful director at bringing our stories to life. We did everything we could do to prepare.

F. Gary Gray also shared that O’Shea Jackson Jr. wasn’t handed the role just because he was Ice Cube’s son. He explained that there were actually two other choices just in case he didn’t show up and show out.

Corey Hawkins shared his experiences in preparing for the role of Dr. Dre.

“I knew this was going to be a big movie, and I knew it would be a lot on our shoulders. I remember going through the ringer. The audition process was not easy. Dr. Dre kind of took me under his wings and said he wanted it to be iconic. He said, I just want to get the legacy right and whatever you need I got you.”

Jason Mitchell wasn’t able to have Eazy-E mentor him for the role, but nonetheless he shared what enabled him to kill it on the screen!

“It was not an easy thing at all. I looked at it like Eazy’s life and my life run hand in hand. If I didn’t do this I was going to go back to my old life. It was so much morale around me. He (Eazy-E) is such an icon, but first he is a regular man. Cube and Dre also helped me with a lot.”

He also shared that he had to practice his accent for 6-8 hours a day and learn how to walk and talk like he was from California. He also had to gain weight by eating 4,000 calories a day!

Remember the film hits theaters August 14th!

Synopsis: In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., ‘Straight Outta Compton’ tells the astonishing story of how these young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war. Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.

Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and More attend the Cinema Society’s Screening of Serena

Photographed by Hannah Thomson

“I forced him to do it—a little bit,” teased Jennifer Lawrence at last night’s Dior Beauty–sponsored Cinema Society screening of Serena. The Dior Haute Couture–clad beauty was referring to Bradley Cooper, of course—her costar in the Susanne Bier–directed 1930s period drama. The pair acted as a husband and wife forging a timber empire in violent tandem in North Carolina in the bleak, industry-minded romance. The screening brought the likes of Josh Lucas, Tali Lennox, Dylan Lauren, and Vogue’s own Grace Coddington to the East Village’s Landmark Sunshine Cinema.

“I read the script while we were working on Silver Linings Playbook,” explained Lawrence just minutes before the screening started, “And any male role is going to make me think of Bradley—because he is the best.”

“We never [bicker]. Never about where to go to dinner. [And] Coop did things that still make me laugh,” continued Lawrence. Cooper chimed in, “I respect her so much as a professional, as an actor, and I think she’s the best there is. So I just learn from her. You always want to work with people who are better than you.”

The foreboding epic gave way to a party at the Top of the Standard moments after the film let out, with Jason Wu, Dorian Grinspan, and more showing up to dance, snack on mini lobster rolls, and sip champagne.

“Honestly, [the beginning of our collaboration] was just happenstance,” reflected Cooper as the night came to a close. “And we all know how that turned out.”
