chloë grace moretz gets manic in the new ‘dark places’ clip



Anyone who's read, or even heard of Gillian Flynn's Dark Places knows that it is easily one of the most chilling, disturbing stories conceived in the past 20 or so years. It covers so much ground—from the '80s Satanic Panic to murder, molestation, and deception—that it seems nearly impossible to pack it all into a feature film. Yet, Dark Places manages to stir up nearly every emotion known to humankind in a compact, suspense-filled two hours. In this exclusive clip, we see how the cast—which also includes Charlize Theron, Christina Hendricks, and Nicholas Hoult—and director/screenwriter Gilles Paquet-Brenner manage to adapt the complex storyline into something both believable and disturbing.

In this exclusive clip, we see Diondra (played by Chloë Grace Moretz) and Ben (played by Tye Sheridan) on the night of their satanic sacrifice ceremony. The cops are searching for Ben, who was accused of molesting a child in his volunteer art class at the local primary school, and Diondra, who comes from a very wealthy, strict household, who is pregnant. This is, of course, before Ben is accused of slaughtering his mother and two sisters. 

Dark Places opens in theaters this Friday, and is available to watch now, exclusively on DIRECTV.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.

"In the midst of chaos there's opportunity"

Following the travesty that was Fyre Festival, Ja Rule wants to take another stab at creating a music festival. Good luck getting that off the ground.

On Thursday, the rapper spoke to TMZ, where he revealed that he was planning to relaunch Icon, an app used to book entertainers, which is similar to Billy McFarland's Fyre app. He told the outlet that he wanted to create a festival similar to Fyre to support it.

"[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn't turn out that way, but in the midst of chaos there's opportunity, so I'm working on a lot of new things," he says. He then gets into the fact that he wants to form a music festival. "[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was... I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn't hear it from me."

Ja Rule actually doesn't seem to think he is at all responsible for what came from Fyre Fest, claiming in a Twitter post that he was "hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, led astray." Even if that's his feeling, he should realize that anyone involved with Fyre shouldn't ever try their hand at music festivals again.
