Good morning my fine readers and Happy Monday to you all. So last night the winners were announced for the 46th Annual People’s Choice Awards and some of you might remember that back in October I helped laud the nominations list. If you don’t, that’s more than alright because the world is such a chaotic place these days that we are bound to forget such trivialities. I didn’t watch it live since I had quite a list of things to do last night but the show was done live and hosted by Demi Lovato at the Barker Hanger in California. To keep this easier for you to digest, I’ve left the nominated as well. Let’s take a look.
Movie of the Year: WINNER – Bad Boys for Life
Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

So it’s without question that the Broadway production of “Hamilton” is a blockbuster among blockbusters and if you are someone that can get a ticket you are in a very small minority since its one of those things that is next to impossible to do. It’s also a very pricey affair when it all adds up for the night out. Now, Disney was originally planning on releasing a big screen motion picture of the play with its most famous cast at some time in 2021 but with the Coronavirus cancelling pretty much everything that people were doing the idea to broadcast this on Disney+ was determined to be the best option. The play has been a record-breaking affair since opening and has won “11” Tony Awards. If you missed our post about the trailer then just click HERE to see it and now it’s time to share that if you are a paid subscriber to Disney+ that this film is now available to stream on the device of your choice. Let’s review the premise, casting and poster down below. I will return at the close.
As you all are probably aware by now, Broadway is on hiatus for the time-being based on the effects of the still in progress Coronavirus Pandemic. Recent reports say that its likely not to return until Winter when the year turns over but some even have pushed this as far as Spring 2021. One of the hottest plays currently on the stage is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton”. The play has been a blockbuster since opening and has won “11” Tony Awards. It was set to open in theaters everywhere sometime in 2021 but with the virus causing so many shows and events to be cancelled or postponed until indeterminate dates, the decision was made to stream this on Disney+ beginning on July 3rd. The trailer was recently released so let’s check that out along with the premise, casting and the official poster.
The origins of the play “In The Heights” go back as far as 1999, and now it’s creator Lin-Manual Miranda helps us all see it come to life on the big screen. Take a look down below at the first full trailer for “In The Heights” which comes at us next summer of 2020.
I’m fairly certain that even Mary Poppins herself would find it rude to repeat something over and over but we are talking about her own movie “Mary Poppins Returns” which comes care of Walt Disney Studios and opens in theaters everywhere today. Emily Blunt is now in command of the flying umbrella and brings the smiles to the front as the timeless character made famous by the great Julie Andrews. The trailers have been widely broadcast everywhere and even RIGHT HERE for good measure if you haven’t seen them yet. Check out the Theatrical Poster, Premise and Casting down below.
The Premise: Set in 1930s London, Jane and Michael Banks are now grown-up, with Michael still living in the house on Cherry Tree Lane. He lives there with his three children, Annabel, John, and George, and the housekeeper named Ellen. After Michael suffers a personal loss, Mary Poppins comes back to the Banks family with street lamplighter Jack, and eccentric cousin Topsy.
