Kristin M. Hall, Associated Press Updated 9:41 am, Wednesday, May 23, 2018 Now Playing: Country duo Sugarland discuss why they're tackling school shootings and bullying in a song on their new album, “Bigger.” (May 23) Media: Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — When the Grammy-award winning country duo Sugarland went back to the studio after a five-year hiatus, Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush had a big secret to keep under wraps. Pop superstar Taylor Swift, who shares the same Nashville-based Big Machine Records label with Sugarland, not only offered them a song she co-wrote but even wanted to sing harmony with them. "That stuff was on lock down," Nettles joked of the collaboration called "Babe," which is now sitting in the Top 30 of Billboard's Hot Country chart. Bush said the recording wouldn't have been released if they didn't get her approval. "If she didn't like it, then we weren't going to tell anybody," Bush said. … [Read more...] about After a hiatus, Sugarland start a conversation with music
6 minutes ago Deadpool 2 is different from most superhero sequels in many ways -- and one example is runtime. While there are many big blockbusters that are happy to go over 135 minutes nowadays, the R-rated follow-up clocks in under two hours long -- largely thanks to its modest scale and tight narrative. As is, it's a great movie and ton of fun, but those of you wishing it could have been longer will soon get a special treat. I can confirm that a Deadpool 2 Extended Cut is currently in the works, courtesy of my recent interview with director David Leitch: There's an extended cut. And I think that they may want to spin that out as a special thing, but right now I'm sort of... we're taking our time, and it's going back to the 'director cut,' and then sort of collaborating with Ryan [Reynolds], Rhett [Reese], and Paul [Wernick], and making sure we're all getting all the jokes we want - to have it be fun and our sort of fun collaboration. I had the pleasure of sitting down … [Read more...] about A Deadpool 2 Extended Cut Is Coming, Here’s What To Expect
Deadpool 2 is here! Get your tickets now! Deadpool 2 is imminent, following up the 2016 film that introduced the wider world to the chatty, bloodthirsty, dubiously sane and surprisingly good-hearted mercenary Wade Wilson. The world fell in love, and with good reason – Ryan Reynolds has a way with high-speed banter and he’s a dab hand with both open and repressed emotions. I’m a long-time fan of the character, so it was a treat to see Reynolds bring him to life so well. All the more so because the character is genuinely difficult to write. Lean too hard into his comic side, and you have a grating, insufferable shamble of occasionally mean jokes and pop culture references whose freshness will inevitably fade. Lean too hard on his dramatic side, and you have one more boring macho tormented angry murder bro. If you carelessly make him too vicious, you’re left with an awful man doing awful things and the comedy sours. And given his origins and history, Deadpool … [Read more...] about The Difficulty Of Writing A Good DEADPOOL
