Grease Sing-A-Long Coming Soon To A City Near You!

With Memorial Day fast approaching, our minds are naturally turning towards “Summer Nights.” Not just as a rough concept, mind you; we’re talking, of course, about Grease! The timeless film is surely one of those rare movies that you and your friends not only know all the words to, but also enjoy singing along with every time that you watch it. Well, Grease fans, you’re in luck!

This summer, a special re-release of the film will be hitting select theaters for a limited two-week run beginning on July 8. Only this time, instead of just passively sitting there and silently watching the screen in the dark, audiences will be encouraged to sing their hearts out alongside Danny Zuko, Sandy Olsson and the rest of the gang! That’s right, Grease Sing-A-Long promises to be one of this summer’s most exciting releases. You can check out the official Grease Sing-A-Long web site to see if the film is coming to your town in July. And even if it isn’t, there’s something you can do about it! You and your friends can head over to and request that the film plays in your town. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to hop in “Greased Lightning” and get this weekend started!

Sarah Jessica Parker’s Blue Dress: Seaworthy Or Another Titanic?

Considering the size of Sarah Jessica Parker‘s headgear at the Sex And The City 2 premiere last night in London, she couldn’t be expected to wear that hollowed-out gothic tree at the afterparty as well. So instead she slipped into something more comfortable, a long heavy-looking blue gown we think we can spot a pony in when we let our eyes relax. Are you liking this oceanic outfit? Check out the gallery and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Sarah Jessica Parker Goes Gaga At The SATC 2 UK Premiere

Sarah Jessica Parker

No, Sarah Jessica Parker did not have a wardrobe malfunction at the Sex And The City 2 premiere in London today—unless you want to call her decision to wear this outfit one. Combining aspects of Janet Jackson‘s Super Bowl slip and Lady Gaga‘s fondness for over-the-top outfits with a little British class (a little), Parker looked like a tree from a Tim Burton movie (it’s disappointing she didn’t have an Oompa Loompa or Jack Skeleton hiding under her bustle). Though Cynthia Nixon‘s tight blue dress would be flattering on any day, in the context of SJP’s monstrosity, that ginger was bangin’. Get a good look at what the ladies wore in the gallery below.

Harry Potter Stars Sad To Let Go


Alas, Hermione Granger doesn’t have a Time Turner to relive the past this time, so as the final Harry Potter wraps filming, it’s official: The saga has ended.

The stars of the films, some of whom have been acting in the same roles since they were ten years old, are pretty sad to see the franchise they’ve spent half their lives working on come to a close. Daniel Radcliffe said at the National Movie Awards in London “I will be devastated [when it's over]. There is nothing I watch without it triggering a series of memories. Everything [about the films] is so linked to my life. At the same time, it is exciting. It is the end.” Emma Watson said the end of Potter “[feels] like someone is dying,” but also sees the positive, explaining that “This kind of love and recognition is just incredible. It is also really emotional for me. I am proud.”

The final installments of the Potter series will be released as two films. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will release in November this year, and part 2 will release in July 2011.

Katie Holmes Embraces Zebra Stripes, Creepy Short Guy At Brit Movie Awards

Here’s some circumstantial evidence Katie Holmes isn’t just Tom Cruise‘s brainwashed bride. If Tom was really forcing Katie to take dance lessons and keeping her under constant watch, would he have allowed her to wear a long dress with height-enhancing diagonal stripes at the National Movie Awards in London yesterday? With heels? Though she was nice enough to tilt her head and lean forward on occasion (Tom-boosting tricks we’ve seen in films since Kelly McGillis hugged the doorway in Top Gun), there was no mistaking her giant stature compared to the diminutive action star. Then again, maybe Tom wants us to see her as some kind of amazon. “Me, domineering? Katie could toss me in the air like a baby, guys.”

Also attending the ceremony were stars like Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Chris Rock, Simon Pegg, Crispin Glover and Gwyneth Paltrow, who was probably furious at TomKat for upstaging her space age tribute to Jackie O. Check it out in the red carpet gallery below.

Sandra Bullock Will Make Appearance At MTV Movie Awards


For a good three months now, you may have noticed that we’re forced to run the same couple of Oscar photos every time we talk about Sandra Bullock because, aside from a couple of carefully orchestrated paparazzi shots, the woman has not made any public appearances. That will all changes though on June 6, when Bullock will appear at the MTV Movie Awards to accept the MTV Generation Award for her “riveting and diverse contributions to the film industry.”

Sure, handing the Oscar winner an award in order to lure her into the spotlight for the first time since her husband’s sex scandal broke is a clever ploy, but there’s no doubt that the crowd will show her some serious love and support. In order to keep the rumormongers and awkward moments at bay, Bullock reportedly will not be doing interviews there, however.

Heidi Montag Wants To Be in Transformers 3 Really Badly

After Megan Fox was dropped from Transformers 3, it took just a few days for Michael Bay to decide her replacement would be model Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Still, in Heidi Montag‘s world, that means nothing, and she’s literally gunning for the role even though the deal is virtually sealed.

PopEater reports that Heidi has launched a Twitter campaign to get noticed by Bay and has posted video at a shooting  range and engaging in “combat training” in order to prove her action prowess. This isn’t the first time Heidi has talked about wanting to be an action star, so it’s not surprising that she’s going the extra mile to impress Bay. We wonder though, can an action star really kick ass with their back scooped out?


Russell Brand And Katy Perry Get Evil At The Greek Premiere

Russell Brand & Katy Perry

Oh, hell yeah. We are 100% behind Russell Brand‘s decision to wear gold boots with a white suit and open shirt to the Get Him To The Greek premiere in LA last night. With Katy Perry vamping it up like a super-villain, this mackadocious outfit was clearly the only way to go—now we’re just worried they’ll blow up the world if they don’t get a billion dollars in 48 hours.

Apparently hesitant to compete with Brand’s swagger, Diddy showed up in casual clothes, joined by his mom— a move that makes us miss the guy who might have brought eight dancers, some doves and a suit actually made of ivory a decade ago. Befitting the premiere of a Judd Apatow production, Greek‘s stars were joined by comedy all-stars like Ed Helms, Kristin Bell, Jon Hamm, Alison Brie and Christopher Mintz-Plasse on the red carpet, as well as Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Rosario Dawson. See what they wore in the gallery below.

Is Emma Roberts The Next Lindsay Lohan?


Look at Lindsay Lohan at it again! Wait… it’s not LiLo. It’s 19-year-old Emma Roberts looking *ahem* worse for wear at an after party for her film 4,3,2,1 in London. Bye-bye Nancy Drew!

Cigarette dangling from mouth. Check. Crazy eyes. Check. About-to-keel-over pose. Check.

So one-off night out, or is Ms Roberts heading the Lindz route? Cautionary tale, folks. You know it’s true!

FABLife’s DVD Pick Of The Week

 The Road

Cormac McCarthy‘s The Road is a rough ride. His prize-winning novel is set after an unspecified disaster leaves Planet Earth a big hunk of charcoal. The crazed survivors are left looking for meat—usually of the human variety. Across this blasted landscape, a man and his son head south, dodging cannibals and savoring simple pleasures like a found can of Coke. Where McCarthy took a dismal view of the future, the filmmakers choose to emphasize how their bond represents undying virtues in a dying planet. As the Man, Viggo Mortensen expertly displays humanity hidden beneath a tough shell. The Road may lack the crowd-pleasing stunts of post-apocalyptic fare like I Am Legend, but it’s elemental celebration of what makes us good will stick with audiences a lot longer. A great soundtrack by Nick Cave, too.

Extras: Commentary from director John Hillcoat (The Proposition), deleted/extended scenes, making of featurette.
