- There will most likely be three female Rangers, if the show follows Kyoryuger in that respect.
- PR is skipping the Super Sentai entry Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, but elements of that show are supposedly going to be used in Dino Charge.
- Some new member colors are introduced: cyan (dubbed Aqua... and I'm not counting Shark Spirit Ranger in Jungle Fury) and gray (dubbed Graphite). Violet/purple has already been done so no surprise there.
- There was a Super Sentai teamup movie featuring all three dinosaur-theme sentai teams: will we see that here?

What do you think about Laurel's new path?
The 22nd season of the Power Rangers franchise, titled Dino Charge, is set to premiere on February 7th. It is based on the 37th Super Sentai series Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger. Like the first season of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (Zyuranger) and Dino Thunder (Abaranger), the heroes' motif is dinosaurs.
It should be noted that longtime PR producer/director Jonathan Tzachor, an executive producer for the previous installment Super Megaforce, will not be working on this series. A sigh of relief for some fans.
So, what can we expect?
Premiere Clip 1:
Premiere Clip 2:
Catch the premiere episode on February 7th, 12/11c, on Nickelodeon. Or stream it now.
Thoughts? Criticisms? Cue the "This show is still on?" and "Only MMPR was good!" comments. Anyone else notice that the Red Ranger actor played the new family's son in the season finale of American Horror Story: Murder House? Also, thoughts on the new Super Sentai show Ninninger? That debuts in Japan on February 15th.
Ariana has adopted her sixth dog, Sirius Black. The other five are Coco, Toulouse, Ophelia, Fawkes, and Cinnamon. She appears to travel with them sometimes, as she has posted photos of a few of them in planes with her. Let's hope they all get the attention they need!
She has adopted her last five dogs in the time span of less than two years.

Brad Pitt is in negotiations to play a famour archaeologist Richard Leakey in a new movie 'Africa' directed by his wife Angie.
This would be their third project together (previous ones Mr. and Mrs Smith and By The Sea). Eric Roth wrote 'Africa' which is a biopic of Richard Leakey, the archaeologist who became a staunch defender of elephants against poachers in Kenya in the late ’80s.

Just months shy of the 10-year anniversary of The Emancipation Of Mimi, Mariah Carey and L.A. Reid are prepping another kind of comeback. The newly-emancipated chanteuse is returning to Sony Music through Epic Records, where Reid has served as chairman since 2011. The seven albums Mariah has released through Sony have sold a combined 43.9 million albums, including the septuple-platinum Music Box and Daydream.
The multi-album deal will see Carey's first new material through Sony since 1999's Rainbow. Mariah is set to begin with a greatest-hits album to coincide with her upcoming residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Dubbed "#1's", the concert series begins May 6 and will include all 18 of Carey's Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers.
Despite the messiness that has been Mariah's career in recent years, we can take hope in that she ended 2014 on a positive note, selling out a six-night residency at New York's Beacon Theatre that grossed a combined $1.5 million. Here's to 2015 and Mariah's chance at scoring her third consecutive Song of the Decade.
What do u think is best for Mariah's career? Can she score another #1? How should she brand herself?
In the most unsurprising news ever, Justin Timberlake officially confirmed his wife's pregnancy by sharing a personal pic of himself kissing her bare belly in a snowy location. Of course this news is no surprise to ontd'ers that have speculated and guessed about this pregnancy for several months now.
Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I'm getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN'T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets
early predictions on the name?
CultureCatch spoke with the director of Ask Me Anything, where Robertson plays a young, promiscuous blogger, and he seems to think so.
Why go AWOL?
AB: The short answer is "I have not the faintest idea." Here's the long answer. When Britt saw the completed movie for the first time, she wrote me an email. She said that she had never been more proud of anything she had ever done and that she would do anything to help promote the film. She was, to put it mildly, over the moon. We sold the film to the first distributor who saw it. Naturally, Britt's total commitment to promoting the movie was intrinsic to the deal. But something had occurred between the time I gave her the role and the movie's moving toward its release: Britt had landed the leads in two giant movies -- Disney's Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, and the new Nicholas Sparks film, The Longest Ride.
You think the fact that she is about to become famous is the reason she has disappeared?
AB: Where facts are absent, rumors fill the void. The first thing I heard was that Disney, not too keen on their leading lady promoting a movie in which her character gets drunk, smokes pot, and has sex with three different men, had put a gag on Britt. It seemed far-fetched but what did I know? Then I heard the same thing about the producers of The Longest Ride. And now I am hearing that there is a jealous boyfriend in the mix. Which I suppose is possible, as Britt's boyfriend Dylan O'Brien, star of The Maze Runner, is quite close with teen idol Max Carver, one of the three men Katie sleeps with in the movie. This sort of speculation in the end is a dead end, though, because what really matters is that a brilliant young artist has given a breathtaking performance of which she is deeply proud, and for some reason she has been advised to keep her mouth shut about it. Maybe I'll never know the real reason.(...)
Any chance Britt will have second thoughts?
AB: No. She hasn't written back to me in months. And her agent is claiming that no one from our movie ever contacted her about publicity -- which is of course laughable. What indie movie would not approach its lead actress to do publicity? Plus, her reps have been fighting tooth and nail to have the "best-faith efforts to promote" clause expunged from her contract. If we never approached her to promote, why bother with that? No, the ship is sailed. Britt is gone. And her beautiful performance is now being treated as a dirty little secret. I just hope that in years to comes when she is reminded by fans how incredible she was in the part, it occurs to her that maybe what she did was not just unethical but foolish.

ontd, have you ever been advised to keep quiet about former jobs?
So you might have heard that the Backstreet Boys documentary Show 'Em What You're Made Of released yesterday in theatres and on VOD. If you haven't? Hey that's okay too. While there was a time when they were the biggest group in the world just suddenly one day they weren't. So while many Backstreet fans are collectively on a bit of a high right now from the release of the film a good portion of the general public hasn't even bat an eye and there's a good chance that you're one of them. If you are maybe you should reconsider.
Show 'Em What You're Made Of is a surprisingly good film. Honestly. Even when you look at it objectively, silencing that hysterical shrieking and sobbing obsessively TRL voting inner tween/teenager it's a solid documentary. The stereotypical "You'll laugh! You'll cry!" actually rings true with this film in part because of how honest they are. It doesn't always paint them in a good light - personally one of the many things going through my mind after my initial viewing was "Fuck Nick Carter" - and it doesn't shy away from things like their manufactured start, legal issues with Lou Pearlman, internal band conflicts and how they aren't the same group they once were.
So anyway long story short I put together this list of some, but not nearly all, of the highlights from the doc. Enjoy and KTBSPA.
Howie was originally the group's lead singer
Anyway this pretty much all ended up changing when the boys were flown to Sweden to meet with producers Max Martin and the late Denniz Pop. The music that they were making didn't sound like anything that was really being played in the US at the time and while four out of the five boys loved that it was different sounding Howie was not on board knowing that his vocals didn't fit with the dissonent sounds at all. Of course they never really had any say in what they were going to sing or do back in those Lou Pearlman days so they moved forward. The decision ended up launching them into super stardorm almost overnight in Europe but Howie really resented being pushed to the side for Brian's vocals, something that he admits to in the documentary that it still bothers him a little which is why he's featured more on their most recent releases.
They used to watch porn together at Lou Pearlman's mansion
He also had porn. A lot of porn. Which isn't really scandalous by any means but still worth a mention.
"At the end of the night we'd put in one of Lou's porns and we'd all watch those every so often," Howie recalled. "First time I even saw two girls kissing each other was on one of Lou's video tapes and I was like, 'What is this?'"
Things get very emotional
While filming took place during the recording of their 2013 album In A World Like This and their 20th anniversary as a group was the catalyst for the doc it's not a concert movie or even one about music. It's about them and not just the parts that fans haven't necessarily seen but things that they've never revealed to each other in two decades as a group.
Emotions get high more than once in the film but the first big moment that at least had me tearing up is when they go to Kevin Richardson's home from when he was growing up and he talks about his father dying of colon cancer. Kevin has spoken about his father's death in the past and even did a PSA about getting tested for colon cancer but in the film he goes more in depth and the memories and emotion hits him hard to the point where he can barely get out the words. He talks about how his family had hidden the severity of his father's illness from him not wanting to worry him. Even when things were really bad and Kevin came home to see his father, who had been in pain and bed bound for weeks, his dad got up and walked to the front door to greet him because he didn't want him to know how bad it was. It's an emotional moment all around (except from Nick who looks disinterested by the whole thing).
Kevin can ask for a blow job in German
The Backstreet Boys gained fame in Europe long before they ever had it in the US. They mention how they spent the better part of three years in Germany back in the beginning. Since the spent so much time there they figured out that they needed to learn some German pretty quickly. They mention some of the first German that they learned which for the most part was some basic "please" and "thank you" type of stuff until you get to Kevin who learned, and can still recite, "Would you give me a blow job?"
A.J. can still recite a monologue he learned as a child complete with hand motions and English accent
Brian and Howie once avoided potential jail time by name dropping Lou Pearlman
A.J. once drank a shot that his friend had puked in
Brian yelling at Nick to shut the fuck up
It's not really a secret that Brian's vocals are not what they used to be. Brian's struggle with it and the fact that they all know but don't really talk about it that much is a key point in the documentary. Brian was diagnosed with both vocal tension dysphonia - the tightening of muscles around the vocal chords - and dystonia - a neuroligal disconnect between his brain and his vocal cords - and has been struggling to overcome it (while the balance is ongoing Brian has recently commented that he's been showing improvement in the past few months). So Nick, pissed off that Brian isn't the biggest fan of the song in question, starts insulting Brian and his struggles and really hits below the belt. It's kind of hard to watch but I have to side with Brian on this one, shut the fuck up Nick.
Also, spoiler alert, the song did make the album unchanged
Nick Carter hasn't matured much in 20 years
In all fairness Nick had a really shitty childhood and his family is a mess. His parents pretty much never saw Nick (and later Aaron) as anything more than dollar signs and he mentions how they have been estranged for years and how overall it was not a happy home to grow up in. The doc leaves you with the impression that Nick still has a lot of issues to work on and he often comes across more like an entitled teenager than he does a thirty something man.

inspired by the previous post on band drama, here is a post purely for some of the biggest British band drama that has happened.
of course one of the most iconic points of the Britpop era was the battle that began between two of the biggest bands at the time,Blur and Oasis. One a working class Northern band, another a middle class band from London, battled to be the biggest band of the Britpop era so of course there was gonna be some drama especially when the pair went head to head in the single charts(spoiler:Blur won that battle). While most of the rivarly was hyped up by the press,Noel did say of Damon and co that he wished they would "catch AIDS and die"
As its very well known the Gallaghers do not get on with many people-and this includes each other. Their very public spats at each other was one of the many reasons Oasis fell apart in 2009 during a World tour. Here are some of their classic quotes about each other:
Noel (on Liam): "I read these interviews with him and I don’t know who the guy is who’s in these interviews, he seems really cool, because the guy I’ve been in a band with for the last 18 years is a fucking knobhead."
Noel (on Liam): "He’s rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy. He’s the angriest man you’ll ever meet. He’s like a man with a fork in a world of soup."
Liam (on Noel): “I like Noel outside the band. Human Noel – that’s my brother – I fucking adore him and I’d do anything for him. But the geezer that’s in this fucking business, he’s one of the biggest cocks in the universe.”
and obvious choice for band drama, the falling out of Morrissey and the amazing Johnny Marr would see the demise of The Smiths,apparently Morrissey hated that Marr was working with other musicians as well as Marr wanting time off from the Smiths and Marr hated how Morrissey was obsessed with 60s music and wasn't really wanting to experiment in sound. Morrissey(and Marr) would then later be sued by the other two members of the Smiths (Andy Rouke and Mike Joyce) for equal royalties from the Smiths,Morrissey has then went to insult both Rouke and Joyce(mainly Joyce) after the court ruled in their favour.
But this wasn't the only rivalry Morrissey has had over the years,here is some of his most ridiculous insults...
“Bob Geldof is a nauseating character. Band Aid was the most self-righteous platform ever in the history of popular music.”
"The rhino is now more or less extinct, and it's not because of global warming or shrinking habitats. It's because of Beyoncé's handbags"
"Bring me the head of Elton John . . . which is one instance in which meat would not be murder, if it were served on a plate."
"Madonna reinforces everything absurd and offensive. Desperate womanhood. Madonna is closer to organized prostitution than anything else."
Take That were undoubtedly the biggest British boy band in the 90s(and now that they've reformed) but drama between two of the members, Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow,began to surface at the peak of the bands success. Barlow,the main songwriter and singer of the band, was adored by their manager Nigel Martin Smith whereas Williams wanted more singing parts and to be a part of the songwriting process of Take That. Nigel Martin Smith began making Williams life hell, spreading rumours about his sexuality etc and Williams then began going off the rails(even partying with "bad boys" Oasis at Glastonbury). Williams was then kicked out of the band after giving him an ultimatum to get his act together or leave. Williams then became a huge solo star while Take That soon after his departure seperated and Barlow's solo career bombed. Williams blamed Barlow for most of his problems in Take That and not noticing how Nigel Martin Smith treated Williams,until recently when the pair made up and reformed Take That.
No Regrets written by Robbie is about the other members of Take That
Geri Halliwell broke every Spice Girl fans heart when she left the band in 1998.Her departure came before their North American tour and took everyone by surprise.While the Spice Girls continued by releasing one more album after departure, Geri's departure affected their success and they eventually broke up while Geri launched her solo career with "Look at Me" which had a video that showed the death of Ginger Spice :'(
During the Britpop era there was another band other than Blur and Oasis around at the time, Welsh band the Manic Street Preachers. Storming into the music scene by claiming they were gonna selling 20 million copies of their debut album and then retire(spoiler:they didn't) they released two more albums before one of their members, Richey Edwards disappeared. Richey also caused controversy by slicing 4real in his arm during an interview with Steve Lemacq. here is a photo of said incident. Richey had a history of self harm, alcoholism and mental health issues during his time in the Manics which was well documented in their music (every should listen to their 3rd album The Holy Bible,just listen to all their albums except Lifeblood) but on the 1st of February 1995, Richey went missing from his London hotel and his car was found ditched at the Severn Bridge in Wales which is known as a popular suicide spot. No body has ever been found so it is unclear where and if Richey is still alive. He was legally declared presumed dead by his family in 2008 but he has apparently been spotted in several places across the world,none of which have been confirmed.
source: my memory(if any of these details are wrong please tell me,its late at night im only doing this as people in the last post requested it) and im sure there are many more dramas i could have done but the 90s drama seems to be the best way to start
Michael Angarano on season 2 of The Knick:
- Calls season 2 "emotional"
- "While season one laid the groundwork for these characters, season two goes a little more inward on all of them."
Ezra Miller on The Flash:
- Is really happy about having a steady job for the next few years with this role.
- That's literally it. Yay, employment!
Yaaaas, Captain Flint is back! Captain Low is cutting off heads! Jack Rackham is coming for your Captaincy! And Vane remains the worst.
Diane Kruger stars in a new ad for Chanel Beauty, looking as youthful as ever. Check it out:
My hatred for this fuckwit (who also appeared as some dude on Power Rangers Samurai, but I couldn't even deal with that show so w/e) has been justified: he got into a fight with his roommate and stabbed him with a sword. He'll probably plead self-defense, because it sounds like Ricardo and his girlfriend were in his bedroom when the roommate forced his way in.
But either way, fuck this guy, and also Taylor should have been the leader of the team, BYE.
