One of the many straight-to-DVD cash-in sequels that have been coming out at an increasing rate in recent years (though it did get a theatrical release in some countries), The Butterfly Effect 2 has virtually no connections to the 2004 original, except for a vague useless mention of that film’s events, and some common crew, mostly in the producing, casting and music departments.
Written by Michael D. Weiss (Journey To The Center Of The Earth 3D), The Butterfly Effect 2 pretty much follows the first film’s formula of a guy who discovers he has the power to alter his past and uses it to save the woman he loves and to try and make his life perfect.
The film stars Eric Lively (Live!, also Gossip Girl star Blake Lively’s older brother), Erica Durance (The CW’s Smallville), Dustin Milligan (The Messengers) and Gina Holden (Final Destination 3) among others and was directed by John R. Leonetti (Mortal Kombat: Annihilation). Trailer and review after the jump. Continue reading →
Leighton Meester (The CW’s Gossip Girl) is about join Hilary Duff, Emmy Rossum, Jennifer Lopez, Lindsay Lohan and more among the ranks of the countless actresses alternating a pop music career. The difference here is that Leighton has apparently pursued music for a long time so this isn’t just an afterthought to get more cash out of young fans.
I’ve always done (music) – just now I am actually doing an album that I plan to release. It’s so cool because it’s a completely different creative process (to acting). From beginning to end it’s yours and you make it. You can see the finished product. It’s sometimes hard when you’re acting to be like, ‘Oh, I see the finished product right before my eyes.’ So it’s cool you’re there from start to finish when you are writing.
No word on when we can expect Leighton’s debut album or what style of music it will hold. All I know is that the fact the girl is pretty is usually enough for me to listen to her songs, so since I think she’s incredibly cute I’ll be there. But what about you? Are you excited at the prospect of a Leighton Meester album? Do you like the work of any actress turned singer?
Awesomely cute actress Leighton Meester (The CW’s Gossip Girl) was born while her mother was in prison because her whole family are a bunch of drug dealers. Say what now? True story, Leighton’s father, grandpa and aunt all did hard time! Whatever, I think it’s cool Hollywood gives people a chance no matter how twisted their family story is and how much drugs they may or may not be taking. Oh wait…
Gossip Girl‘s second season debuted this monday in America and the first season was recently released on DVD.
