If you aren’t familiar with Ness Nite yet, do yourself a favor and GET FAMILIAR. After securing a top spot in the Star Tribune’s annual “Are You Local” contest, Ness Nite has gone on to turn heads with solid singles and great live performances. One such single is “Yes,” which features another up and coming artist in Nick Jordan. Earlier today they released their video which was directed and produced by Connor Evert and Alan De Leon Taverna; two of Minnesota’s premier visual artists. The cinematography fits the record like a glove as a late night fire dances in the background. Ness & Nick compliment each other well, the video is so immersive that it leaves the viewer wanting more. There’s no doubt in our minds that you’ll be seeing a lot more from each of these artists, check out the video above for yourself.
Reactions by fans to the news that there would be a second Zoolander was pretty mixed, although it didn’t necessarily come with any real surprise considering Hollywood insists on banking on 20-year-old franchises these days. Nevertheless the rumors were true and production has been underway for sometime now, with the upcoming release for Zoolander 2 scheduled for February 12, 2016. Ben Stiller (Meet the Parents, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) and Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers, Midnight in Paris) are reprising their roles as fashion models Derek and Hansel, whose careers are now threatened by a new company attempting to put them out of business. Ben Stiller is once again behind the director’s chair, working from a script by himself and original Zoolander screenwriter John Hamburg (Along Came Polly, I Love You Man), along with Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2) and Nicholas Stoller (Yes Man, Get Him To The Greek).

A new comedy from Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Bandits) is opening in theaters this week. Titled Rock the Kabash, the film stars comedy veteran Bill Murray (Ghostbusters, Lost in Translation) as a music-industry manager who discovers the voice of a young talent while on tour in Afghanistan and accompanies her to Kabul to participate in Afghan Star, a popular talent-reality show in the Middle East. Screenwriter Mitch Glazer (Scrooged, The Recruit) is behind the script, which features Leem Lubany (Omar, From A to B), Zooey Deschanel (Elf, Yes Man), Bruce Willis (Die Hard, Pulp Fiction), Kate Hudson (Almost Famous, The Skeleton Key), and Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, This Is The End). This will be Levinson’s first directorial release since 2014’s The Humbling with Al Pacino (The Godfather, Scarface). The trailer is available here on MADE. Enjoy!
A new comedy from writing/directing duo Andrew Mogel (Yes Man, Allen Gregory) and Jarrad Paul (Liar Liar, 40 Days and 40 Nights) is opening in theaters this May 8th. Starring Jack Black (Shallow Hal, School of Rock) and James Marsden (X-Men, Zoolander), the film follows unpopular Dan Landsman (Black), who embarks on a mission from Pennsylvania to California in order to bring the most popular student from his high school graduating class (Marsden) back with him to their high school reunion in order to finally be popular. Kathryn Hahn (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, We’re The Millers), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development, The Hangover), and Mike White (The Good Girl, Orange County) also star in the film.
Marvel’s upcoming film-adaptation of Ant-Man is scheduled to open in theaters this July 17th. Considering the subject matter I can’t honestly say I’m excited about this comic-movie, but fans of the series may enjoy the big-screen adventure from comedic-drama director Peyton Reed (The Break-Up, Yes Man) and comedy screenwriters Adam McKay (Step-Brothers, The Other Guys) and Paul Rudd (Anchorman, Knocked Up). Rudd also leads the cast as Scott Lang (Ant-Man), which also features Evangeline Lilly (Lost, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug), Hayley Atwell (The Duchess, Captain America: The First Avenger), Judy Greer (Love & Other Drugs, Jurassic World), and Michael Douglas (Romancing The Stone, Wall Street). As I said before I’m not particularly thrilled about this one coming out, but at least McKay and Rudd play into the ridiculous title of this comic character. The plot follows con-man Scott Lang as he uses a specialized suit that can grow and shrink in size in order to pull off a heist that will save the world from self-destruction. Check out the new teaser trailer here on MADE; we should see a more full-length trailer come out closer to the summer-time, so stay tuned.
