The Daily Heat Index: Who Wouldn’t Want to Dance with Jennifer Lawrence?
Plus, Chris Hemsworth slays in the new Huntsman trailer, and more info is revealed about Star Wars: Force Awakens.
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
JLaw and Jimmy Want You to Come Dance
Apparently, being rejected by Jennifer Lopez makes you do crazy things. During her latest guest appearance on TheTonight Show, Jennifer Lawrence and Jimmy Fallon were ‘Dez’ and ‘Dash,’ two retro-dressed dancers who just wanted anyone to come dance with them. It’s amazing Jennifer Lawrence has time to do anything these days, but we’re really happy that she was able to don what looks like a shower curtain and bless us with a new persona. Learn a new dance move or two and watch the video yourself.
Emily Blunt Brings the Chill in The Huntsman Trailer
Snow White and the Huntsman
isn’t exactly a movie you watch incessantly once it’s released on DVD, so when a sequel/spin-off was announced, we were a bit iffy. That was, until the trailer for
The Huntsman: Winter’s War
was released. Chris Hemsworth subs out Mjolnir
for an axe as the title character (with Kristen Stewart nowhere in sight, thank God). Supporting him: tons of CGI creatures, an Elsa-look-alike in the form of Emily Blunt, a crazy Charlize Theron, and Jessica Chastain looking to get a little from the Huntsman himself. Could we ask for anything more?
Finn Speaks More in New Force Awakens Footage
John Boyega made intergalactic waves when he debuted as Finn, a back Stormtrooper, in trailers and preview material ahead of a Star Wars: The Force Awakens release date. From the buzz of the initial unveiling to the online backlash of racist Star Wars “traditionalists,” Boyega’s first fifteen minutes in the limelight have seen more ups and downs than a standard issue TIE fighter. But the newest spot, centering on Boyega’s character of Finn, gives the Stormtrooper-turned-hero a voice for the first time. We see Finn battling Stormtroopers and letting out whoops of excitement in the Millenium Falcon, as well as some glimpses into his past. The dynamic between Finn and Han Solo, too, is almost eerily familiar (Luke, anyone?). “You sure you’re up for this?” Solo asks Finn. “Hell no.” Finn responds honestly. Prepare yourself for the film’s opening next month.
