Have courage and be kind.

Get ready! Disney has released its first official trailer for the fairy-tale classic ‘Cinderella,’ and it will blow you away.

The highly anticipated film is riddled with a star-studded cast including Cate Blanchett as the sinister evil stepmother, actor Richard Madden known best for his role as Robb Stark in HBO’s popular fantasy-drama “Game of Thrones” as Prince Charming and new-comer Lily James who plays Lady Rose MacClare on Downton Abbey, as Ella (Cinderella). We can’t wait.

With headlines blaring about cyberbullying, “Nowhere Safe” is a sobering look at what could go wrong is this “Family Approved” movie by The Dove Foundation. Two teen girls Mel and Alana launch a massive cyber attack on Ashley (Danielle Chuchran) by using her identity and pretending to be her. Ashley and her family’s life is ruined, and after their house is vandalized, her mother, Julie Johnson, played by Natasha Henstridge leave town. But the past catches up with Ashley at a party, causing her to fear for her life again.

 

Stopbulling.gov describes and gives examples of cyberbullying. This includes “mean text messages or emails; rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites; and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites or fake profiles.”

 

Bullying is real, and will not just “run its course.” There is severe damage done to the victim. About 160,000 kids admitted that they skipped school because of bullying this year. Kids in their teens (25 percent) admitted that they have been harassed via social media, and on cell phones. About 95 percent of teens use social media have witnessed bullying on social networks according to a 2011 PEW Internet Research Center.

Casting of God: Is the Equivalent of Choosing an Old Woman to Play Harry Potter

posted by Corine Gatti

And if there was not enough bad mouthing about Ridley Scott’s film Exodus: Gods and Kings. The announcement this month that God will be played by 11-year-old Isaac Andrews has religious sects in an uproar.

Chris Stone, Founder of Faith Driven Consumer and Certified Brand Strategist said many will be offended that a child will play the Almighty.

“Consumers don’t object to filmmakers taking artistic license, they expect that, but they strongly object to deviations that fundamentally undercut the core biblical story and message,” Stone in a press release after the announcement.

“Using the voice of a child for God the Father is a primary example, it will likely offend millions around the world. It’s gross miscasting, the biblical equivalent of choosing an old woman to play Harry Potter.”

Scott was also slammed for his casting and for not sticking to the biblical script of the parting of the Red Sea. The film will depict the parting of the Sea to be from an earthquake, not from God’s hand.

Last month Christian Bale was criticized for calling Moses a schizophrenic, who was “a very troubled, tumultuous man and mercurial. But the biggest surprise was the nature of God. He was equally very mercurial.”

Exodus: Gods and Kings will open in theaters on Dec. 12.

Kathy Griffin Joins E’s Fashion Police

Kathy Griffin

The replacement for Joan Rivers’ Fashion Police has been decided. Reports have confirmed that Kathy Griffin will take the place of the late comedienne on the E! show. Griffin will be joined by Rivers’ daughter and FP producer Melissa Rivers, as well as co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne. It remains unclear as to whether fellow co-host George Kotsiopoulos will stay on as well – Kotsipoulos remains on E as a correspondent for various other shows on the network.

Joan Rivers’ Fashion Police will no longer be aired on a weekly basis, instead it will air only during award shows and other special occasions. Us Weekly reported that a source close to Rivers confirmed, “Joan has always given her blessing to Kathy” and that she “wanted Kathy to be her successor. They talked about it many times,” the insider says.

Griffin and Rivers have a similar, in-your-face, sense of humor and were very good friends. Earlier this month, Griffin confirmed to Access Hollywood that she was offered the gig, but said: “I don’t know if the situation is correct at this time for me or right for me at this time.”

Rivers tragically passed away on September 4th following an unplanned throat procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy in New York City on Aug. 28th.
