Jennifer Hudson & Jordin Sparks Talk ‘The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Peete’

American Idol winners Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks show off their acting chops in the new film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Peete.

HipHollywood sat down with both ladies during the film’s junket to find out what is was like working together and starring in the emotionally charged film.

“It’s really crazy,” said Sparks of working with her Idols Hudson and Alicia Keys, who executive produced and scored the film. “When everything is in alignment it just works.”

Hudson too said working with Keys was a treat, but more challenging was taping into her character as a heroin addict.

“It was very challenging to get into Gloria,” explained Hudson. “I was intimidated down to the day we started filming I must say because she’s completely different from Jennifer Hudson the person.”

But, director George Tillman applauded Hudson’s commitment to the character and said her transformation will shock audiences.

“What I loved was that from the very beginning she was down,” explained Tillman. “Down for the tattoo’s, down for the hair and transcending her look … I’m very proud of her performance in the film.”

And Tillman is also extremely proud of the performances of Sklyan Brooks and Ethan Dizon, who carry the film as Mister and Peete, and are already being touted as one’s to watch in Hollywood.

See what these adorable guys had to say about taping into their characters and working with super stars Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks.

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Peete is in theaters October 12.

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

Published

on

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 crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard 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 it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

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

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and 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.
