December 7th is coming soon! That’s when Playing For Keeps, starring Gerard Butler and Jessica Biel hits theaters. A new behind the scenes trailer has just been released. I think you will all appreciate Gerard’s curly hair like I do.
The synopsis goes like this: Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dennis Quaid star in “Playing For Keeps,” a romantic comedy about a charming, down-on-his luck former soccer star (Butler) who returns home to put his life back together. Looking for a way to rebuild his relationship with his son, he gets roped into coaching the boy’s soccer team. But his attempts to finally become an “adult” are met with hilarious challenges from the attractive “soccer moms” who pursue him at every turn. “Playing For Keeps” is directed by Gabriele Muccino, the director of “The Pursuit of Happiness.”
The movie hits theaters on December 7, 2012. Be sure to check out their Facebook and Twitter pages too.
OneRepublic are giving fans an inside look at the making of their music video for “Feel Again,” the band’s powerful new single. The behind-the-scenes clip explores the video’s isolated location in the Redwood Forests and the use of intricate lighting effects. “The whole video is very visually stunning,” says guitarist Drew Brown. “We’re co-starring with electricity.”
The band recently took to their Twitter to announce the title of the upcoming album, Native (coming soon on Mosley Music Group/Interscope Records), and also posted additional song titles including “Counting Stars,” “Preacher,” and “Something’s Gotta Give.”
“Feel Again” is available now on iTunes, where a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each download benefits non-profit organization Save the Children.

Nelly Furtado describes the inspiration for her latest single “Parking Lot” as “good times in my hometown, sort of like my own take on ‘Summer Of 69′.” In this brand new clip, she takes fans behind the scenes of the music video, a glamorous and fun loving interpretation of Nelly’s teen years spent hanging out with friends.
“Parking Lot” was directed by Ray Kay (Lady Gaga, Beyoncé) and will premiere Monday, September 17th.
The Spirit Indestructible, Nelly Furtado’s follow up to the multi-platinum Loose, drops September 18th and is available for pre-order on iTunes and NellyFurtado.com.
