David Alan Grier & Cast Give ‘Peeples’ Two Snaps & A Circle!



Over the years the HipHollywood staff has done tons of junkets but there hasn’t been one quite as fun as Peeples.

The cast had us doubled over laughing as they talked (and sang) about the film and cutting up on set.

“It took us much longer than it should have to film this movie, because we were laughing consistently and singing constantly,” said Kerry Washington, who also revealed that she was excited to leave behind the drama of her TV series Scandal for a bit to star in a comedy.

“We laughed all the way between set-ups,” added David Alan Grier. “There was a piano and Craig was always egging us on…it was a lot of fun”

Written and directed by Tina Gordon Chism (ATL, DrumLine) and presented by none other than Tyler Perry, the film follows Wade Walker (played by Craig Robinson) as he attempts to fit in with his girlfriends family during their annual reunion.

Grier plays Kerry’s overprotective father, and of course we couldn’t help but ask what the hilarious men of “Men on Film” he once played alongside Daman Wayans on In Living Color would give Peeples. Check it out!


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
