The Hangover III.


Consider the competition slate for the Cannes Film Festival officially scrambled. Or, you know, maybe not: on Thursday, Warner Brothers announced that it was preparing a third installment in the “Hangover” series, its bawdy, billion-dollar grossing comedy franchise about three friends whose travels invariably result in collective memory loss followed by farcical efforts to retrace their troublemaking steps.

Warner Brothers said in a news release that the series stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis would reprise their roles as the three friends, Phil, Stu and Alan, in “The Hangover Part III,” which is planned for release on May 24, 2013. Todd Phillips, who directed the two previous films, is once again on board as director. He will also produce “Part III” and write the script with Craig Mazin, his screenwriting collaborator on “Part II.”

The original “Hangover,” released in 2009, set its characters loose on Las Vegas and sold more than $467 million in tickets worldwide. The 2011 sequel, set in Bangkok, was even more lucrative and grossed a further $581 million globally, but took lumps from critics who called it a retread of the first film.

No setting or plot description for “Part III” was immediately offered, but Mr. Phillips said in a statement: “We’re going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned. It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions.”

Type x Media


Typography is something that fascinates me to no end, and when Reginald Sylvester is your younger brother, and you have a graphic designer for a personal assistant, you see it all the time.  Essentially Typography the art of arranging, designing and modifying type. Creating a well designed typography poster is no easy task, and takes time and patience. When a poster focuses only on typography as its main element, the designer has to carefully craft his design to make sure that the type is both legible and artistic at the same time. In his 16 Posters series, graphic designer Jerod Gibson creates typographic movie posters and enhances them by adding the famous quotes from the movies to the silhouetted designs.  Check the method below.

Sleepless in Las Vegas


Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas

A vacation is something that anyone in the entertainment line of work is lucky to get.  Some of us grind so hard, 20 minutes away from our cell phones is a vacation.  Then there are others who will “eventually get a day to myself… That’s gon’ be the day they burry me, but it’ll come eventually” – Lil Wayne.  I however understand the importance of staying hard at work, but I can never say no to a long weekend in Vegas.  So when my good friend Marqus Crawford offered me a deal on a villa in the Planet Hollywood towers, I obviously said yes.

Above are a few shots of the Villa we will be occupying during our stay.  While I’m alongside Jade Davis, Erik Woodruff, and Marqus, I will be giving you a play by play on the action, activities, and adventures that go down from the 1st to the 4th of April.
