Billy Porter announced Madame Tussauds wax figurine via 360 MAGAZINE.

BILLY PORTER × MADAME TUSSAUDS

Billy Porter is a Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winning actor, singer, director, composer, and playwright – and today – his latest accomplishment comes in the form of a wax figure from the world’s greatest wax museum, Madame Tussauds. Billy announced the exciting news to his fans on Instagram. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Billy is best known for his electric portrayal of Pray Tell in FX’s breakthrough series, “Pose;” representation of the Fairy Godmother in Amazon’s remake of Cinderella; and his fabulous style. A veteran of the theater, Billy, has also starred in Broadway including Kinky Boots, which he won the 2013 Drama Desk and Tony Awards for Best Actor in a Musical. Besides his accomplishments in acting, Billy is also known as an inspirational icon. Through his powerful statements on the red carpet and openness within interviews and his memoir, he is admired for his vulnerability and supportive nature to all communities. Therefore, on behalf of World Kindness Day on November 13, Billy announced there’s more of him to spread kindness with his new wax figure.

Billy sat down with a team of artists who will create his wax figure. The multi-talented star’s figure will wear a recreation of one of his most memorable looks from the 2020 Grammy awards, styled by Sam Ratelle. A Scott Studenberg-designed turquoise jacket and jumpsuit, and a wide-brimmed hat with a motorized screen of crystalline fringe. The figure will take about six months and 20 studio artists to create in London before fans can meet his figure at Madame Tussauds New York Times Square.

“I am humbly honored to be receiving my very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds. It’s been a pleasure to work with the artists to make this dream come true and I can’t wait to see my twin in New York!” said Billy Porter.

After making history becoming the first openly gay, black man to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama, Billy has fought to provide visibility and inspiration to all young queer people of all colors. Madame Tussauds provides direct access to A-list celebrities, showcasing their impact on society. Fans will be able to meet Billy Porter’s wax twin at Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square.

Hilary (Olivia Colman, in another knockout performance) is a single woman who runs the ticket booth, where she meets Steven (played with stirring confidence by relative newcomer Micheal Ward). Though on its surface a love story, Empire of Light is not what you might expect, as Mendes sidesteps the expected nostalgia to instead follow the credo written on the cinema’s walls: “Find in light where darkness lies.”

Anxious Nation
Directors: Vanessa Roth, Laura Morton
Country: United States; Running Time: 100 min
Anxious Nation takes a deep look into the crisis of anxiety and mental health in America, especially its crippling impact on kids and families.  Over the past three decades, the biggest public health threats to teenagers in the United States came from binge drinking, drunken driving, teenage pregnancy and smoking. Today, these have been replaced by soaring rates of mental health disorders—especially anxiety. In a rare public advisory in early 2022, the U.S. surgeon general warned of a devastating mental health crisis among adolescents, creating a national emergency. Like pouring gasoline on an already out of control inferno, anxiety and its impact were intensely exacerbated by the pandemic.  
 
The Best Chef in the World
Director: Ben Proudfoot
Country: USA; Running Time: 90 min
The French Laundry, run by legendary chef Thomas Keller, has often been recognized as the best restaurant in the world, but few know the story of its original founder, Sally Schmitt.

Director: Denny Tedesco
Country: United States; Running Time: 102 min
Directed by Denny Tedesco who made the original The Wrecking Crew documentary,  Immediate Family follows the next wave of musicians who would create the Singer-Songwriter sound backing everyone from James Taylor, Carole King, Don Henley and Linda Ronstadt, to Crosby & Nash, Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, and Keith Richards. This small team of players would go on to change the course of musical history, creating the sound of the 70’s and all that came after. 
 
The Jackie Stiles Story
Director: Brent Huff
Country: United States; Running Time: 94 min
This is the story of a 5’8″ girl from a small Kansas town, population 600, who became a basketball legend in the Midwest. Against all odds, Jackie became the all-time leading scorer in NCAA history, a record she held for 16 years. This feat was accomplished through hard work and unwavering determination. Jackie has beat numerous opponents throughout her career but now she is facing her biggest challenge. In 2017, Jackie was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma cancer in her eye.
 
Killing Me Softly With His Songs
Director: Danny Gold
Country: USA; Running Time: 103 min
Killing Me Softly with His Songs is a musical documentary about the life and work of composer Charles Fox, known for pop hits such as “Killing Me Softly with His Song,” “I Got a Name,” and “Ready to Take a Chance Again,” as well as iconic television show themes for Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, The Love Boat, and Wonder Woman.

The Lost Leonardo
Director: Andreas Koefoed
Country: Denmark; Running Time: 96 min
The Lost Leonardo (2021), a documentary from Danish filmmaker, Andreas Koefoed, traces the discovery of the rare “Salvatore Mundi” by the Renaissance master, Leonardo Da Vinci; the painstaking process of vetting its veracity and uncovering the multi-layered stories and mysteries surrounding this rare art find which initially sold for $ 1,175 in 2005 and then was auctioned for $ 450 million in 2017.  
 
Lynch/OZ
Director: Alexandre O. Philippe
Country: USA; Running Time: 108 min
Victor Fleming’s film The Wizard of Oz (1939) is one of David Lynch’s most enduring obsessions. This documentary goes over the rainbow to explore this Technicolor through-line in Lynch’s work. 
 
River
Directors: Jennifer Peedom, Joseph Nizeti
Country: USA; Running Time: 75 min
A journey from source to sea, River is a cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers. Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our journeys; flowed through our cultures and dreams. River takes its audience on a journey through space and time; spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming, the film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before. Its union of image, music and sparse, poetic script will create a film that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognises their vulnerability.
 
Song For Hope – The Ryan Anthony Story
Director: Chris Haigh
Country: United States; Running Time: 80 min
This is the incredible story of Ryan Anthony, the renowned principal trumpet of the Canadian Brass and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

During that time, while undergoing treatment, he climbed Mt. Fuji with his oncologist to raise further funds and awareness for his disease, playing Amazing Grace at the summit as the sun rose.

NCT DREAM’s THE MOVIE

Tickets are on sale now at www.NCTDreamTheMovie.com for NCT DREAM’s first movie, NCT DREAM THE MOVIE : In A DREAM. The trailer for the highly anticipated movie was released HERE and opens with NCT DREAM’s “Déjà Vu” and the sight of the band taking the stage at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul packed with NCTzens (NCT DREAM’s official fan community).

Presented by SM Entertainment, Trafalgar Releasing, and CJ 4DPLEX Inc., NCT DREAM THE MOVIE : In A DREAM is coming to cinemas worldwide on Wednesday, November 30 and Saturday, December 3, with a consecutive multiple day run in South Korea beginning on November 30, and a theatrical release in Japan scheduled for December 6.

The movie showcases NCT DREAM’s live performances, previously only seen in concerts, the group backstage, their preparations for the concert, and the feverish atmosphere of the Olympic Stadium. Additionally, the event features a special gift for NCTzens of exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with the seven members of the group (MarkRenjunJenoHaechanJaeminChenleJisung) where they share candid stories and their thoughts and feelings.

NCT DREAM THE MOVIE:

In A DREAM features the “NCT DREAM TOUR ‘THE DREAM SHOW2 : In A DREAM” concert (hereafter referred to as “THE DREAM SHOW2”), the second concert of NCT DREAM held at the Olympic Stadium in September 2022. “THE DREAM SHOW2” was NCT DREAM’s second solo concert in just six years since their debut, which caused a stir at the Olympic Main Stadium, the largest concert hall in Korea, as it is called the “Stage of Dreams” for all artists.

The two-day concert sold out immediately, with NCT DREAM proving its potential as a superstar artist by mobilizing 135,000 audience online and offline. As the second concert was held after two years and 10 months since their first concert at Jangchung Municipal Stadium in 2019, “THE DREAM SHOW2” was a very special experience not only for the NCTzens, but also for NCT DREAM themselves, especially with the participation of “All 7 DREAMS” in a concert for the first time.

IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING via 360 MAGAZINE.

IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING

After Successful Festival Play and Stellar Reviews, Toby Amies’ Long-Awaited New Documentary “In the Court of the Crimson King, King Crimson at 50” Celebrates with Special Global Streamed Screening 22 October

Watch the trailer here

“’In the Court of the Crimson King’ is really about as good as rock documentaries get…” 

Chris Willman, Variety

“Very entertaining, very accessible and very funny…It is about the burden of dreams and the misery of making art.” – Mark Kermode

“…fascinating and deeply funny…” – Daniel Dylan Wray, The Quietus

“…one of the finest rock documentaries ever made.” – Kyle Smith, National Review

“One of the complaints people have about King Crimson’s music is that it’s cerebral, rather than emotional, in nature. Despite that argument, In the Court of the Crimson King exposes the music’s heart.” – Joe Gross, The Austin Chronicle

“A grown-up film about working players living, dying, laughing, playing…” – Robert Fripp

London, UK (October 6, 2022)—Discipline Global Music Ltd (DGM) is delighted to announce the public launch of the highly anticipated documentary “In the Court of the Crimson King, King Crimson at 50,” directed by Toby Amies (“The Man Whose Mind Exploded”). King Crimson have always pioneered an uncompromisingly independent route, and this documentary, four years in the making, has followed the same path. In a carefully choreographed global event, the movie will be available on Saturday 22 October, with a special streamed screening in London, including a live introduction by Robert Fripp and Q&A with the director and band members. The exclusive event debuts live worldwide 22 October on the nugs.net platform and will be available through Video On-Demand for a 24-hour period thereafter, to allow for fans in different time zones around the world to watch.

Cinema screenings will be held worldwide from 19 October onwards in select cities. Please visit itcotck.com/screenings for details on upcoming screenings in your area. A Blu-ray/DVD release and larger box set will follow, with never-before-seen live performances of the band, outrageous outtakes, and hours of unreleased additional footage. NOTE: Any cinemas or fans wishing to screen the film or organize a screening should contact the film via itcotck.com.

“In the Court of the Crimson King, King Crimson at 50” explores the “acute suffering” and transcendent glory experienced by current and former members of King Crimson, allowing the audience an intimate and sometimes uncomfortable insight into the musicians’ experience as they confront life and death head-on in the world’s most demanding rock band. It is not only a film about a group that has been creatively active for more than 50 years, it is also a film about music, why it matters, and the painful sacrifices artists have to make to create work that changes people’s lives—but with jokes.

In keeping with King Crimson’s independent, ethical, and iconoclastic approach to the music and entertainment business, they have sidestepped traditional broadcast platforms in order to bring the film directly to their fans, without further delay or compromise.

WORLDWIDE DIGITAL STREAMED EVENT BEGINS

22 OCTOBER 8:00PM BST/3:00PM EDT/12:00PM PDT

Carson MacCormac stars in Netflix thriller film Luckiest Girl Alive via 360 MAGAZINE.

Carson MacCormac in Netflix’s Luckiest Girl Alive

Listen to Carson MacCormac chat with Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG podcast HERE.

Carson MacCormac will soon be seen in a provocative, supporting role as a young Dean in Lionsgate‘s eagerly awaited thriller Luckiest Girl Alive.

”I think this project is fantastic. I’m really excited to be a part of its cast… The Crew and everyone on board is so talented, so I really think it’s going to be a good one.” That’s Carson’s take on his involvement in the project.

This forthcoming film, featuring Connie Britton, Mila Kunis, and Finn Wittrock, brings Jessica Knoll‘s best-selling novel to life. It tells the story of Ani FaNelli (Kunis), a young woman who has a perfect life in New York, which ultimately turns out to be a fantasy. Things change for the worse as she is forced to relive a traumatic incident from her teenage history. After being accosted by a documentary director, she speaks of the nightmare. Afterward, everyone and everything within her world begin to crumble.

MacCormac plays a cowardly and selfish student who is the catalyst for the unspeakable events which took place during Kunis’ adolescence. Carson describes his performance as intense, and it literally terrified him to get so submerged. ”It makes me sad to dive into it when I first got the script,” he says.

It is clear that MacCormac is an arts apprentice and enjoys reading and writing. While the thriller was based in the 1990s, this able-bodied actor handled both the vernacular and temperament of the game with ease. ‘’I love doing roles when I get to play characters that are in a different time frame, a different world,” he confesses.

Directed by Mike Barker and produced by Buddy Enright, this movie will have everyone locked on their flat screens while on the edge of their sofas.

MORE ABOUT CARSON

Carson is best known for his role in the hit DC Comics superhero movie SHAZAM! in the role of “Brett Breyer” and will be reprising the role in the sequel SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS (Summer 2023).  

Moreover, Carson starred in the lead role of Chris, a teenage runaway, in the gritty independent drama, East of Middle Westby director Brian Lucke Anderson for which he won the Best Actor award at the 2021 Montreal Independent Film Festival. In addition, he heavily recurred in Seasons 2 and 3 of popular series Locke & Key on Netflix portraying Benjamin Locke, who was the key to the mystery. The third and final season of the series aired on August 10, 2022.

Phillip Garcia and Shakira Barrera in Freevee sitcom Sprung via 360 MAGAZINE.

PHILLIP GARCIA IS SPRUNG

Listen to actor Phillip Garcia chat with Vaughn Lowery about Sprung on 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast HERE.

Born May 24, 1988, Phillip Garcia was raised in San José, California. As an adolescent, he loved anything that had to do with art, including musical theatre. At his first audition, he belted NSYNC‘s “This I Promise You,” earning him the lead role.

After years of honing his craft, Phillip attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in Los Angeles. Subsequently, he landed a plethora of roles in both TV and film: Criminal Minds, Scandal, Animal Kingdom, and OKJA.

The dramedy was created by the Emmy award-winning television director, writer, and producer Greg Garcia. In the hit streaming series, his character, Rooster, is released from prison due to COVID. And, he ends up sheltering in place at his mom’s with fellow inmates: former cellmate Jack (Garret Dillahunt); Gloria, Jack’s ex-prison girlfriend (Shakira Barrera), and his mother Barb (Martha Plimpton).

Although this critically acclaimed thespian continues to produce epic performances, he still found time for love. In fact, this week marks his one year anniversary with his beautiful and supportive wife. As they celebrate their nuptials, we’re sure the two of them will be toasting to his most talked-about starring role on Sprung.

‘‘He’s a lovable jerk. He would do anything to protect his mother… to protect the ones he loves. And for me, those were the moments that I love this character the most,’’ Phillip adds.

Phillip exuded a lot of excitement to have worked in tandem with such a dynamic cast, especially as the ensemble boasts other Latinx leads. Reliving his character’s plight, “What do we do now? We must shelter in place, we are in a global pandemic,” Phillip says.

The first season has been a roller-coaster. According to Philip, “We basically shot 10 episodes in 10 weeks, which is like a crazy time for me,” he says. Now, it’s being heavily praised by a myriad of media outlets: Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, and Paste Magazine.

In sum, Sprung is solid, possessing raw humor and well-handled emotion. We’re looking forward to Season 2.

Björgvin Arnarson chats up Chucky with Vaughn Lowery in 360 MAGAZINE exclusive.

BJÖRGVIN ARNARSON – CHUCKY

Listen to Björgvin Arnarson and Vaughn Lowery chat all things CHUCKY on 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast HERE.

Björgvin Arnarson plays ‘Devon’ on the hit TV series, CHUCKY.

Björgvin is an up-and-coming American television actor with a fraternal twin brother. In 2019, this biracial (Icelandic father and Floridian mother) boy wonder made his acting debut as a guest star on Family Time. When asked about his early acting experiences, Arnarson said, “I always liked performing. I used to do community theater back then, I also made short films with my brother… Then my mom asked, ‘Why don’t you start auditioning?’ I replied, ‘Sure!’… I did one commercial, a low-budget film, some horror movies, and a book trailer. I booked some small things and then booked CHUCKY.” 

Subsequently, Arnarson broke into film with a supporting role in horror, starring Vadhir Derbez and Guy Pearce, The Seventh Day. Additionally, he solidified a bit part in Hulu’s hit comedy series, PEN15, earning numerous credits in a short span. When questioned about daily set life, he asserts, “I never know what scene we’re shooting until the day of, so I have to be prepared to be super dramatic or super not dramatic.” He further elaborates, “Shooting out of order is interesting to me …like we’re shooting episode 3 but it’s only the end scene, and we’ll shoot the beginning later.” 

Björgvin portrays Devon Evans in the TV version of the cult classic, CHUCKY, premiering October 5. “I was on my computer playing games, my dad told me that I booked it. I was like ‘Oh Dang Okay!’” Arnarson recalled the day he got the role. “The first thing I did was watch all of the Chucky movies.” 

Born into a family that is both artistic and supportive, it is not surprising that Björgvin Arnarson is an eclectic actor with enormous dedication. Arnarson mentioned that he has a twin brother who is a talented musician and ballet dancer, “We’re fraternal, not identical, but he is three minutes older, he always says that, but whatever.” When they were babies, his mother danced and sang for them, and they soon found out that his father was once in a band and performed in the theater.

While this tailspin continues to earn honors, Arnarson enjoys reading comics, playing the piano and being an active company in the local artistic scene. “I like photography, digital art… putting things together into one big piece… filmmaking, mixed media, Manga… and I’m a big music guy,” Arnarson said.

DEVON EVANS is a boy-next-door and true crime addict who runs a podcast called “Hackenslash,” which sheds light on local crime in his hometown of Hackensack. Evans is hell-bent on making sense of the mysterious Hackensack tragedies, not only from the past but also from the present. Devon is a student at Perry Middle School and is dating “Jack Wheeler” (Zachary Arthur).

CHUCKY is a continuation of the emblematic cinema franchise that retraces the murderous events of the famous killer doll. In the television series, Chucky encounters former allies, sworn enemies and new prey, as he tries to inspire fear, nervousness and chaos wherever he goes.

After his horrible plot to invade America’s children’s hospitals was thwarted in the first season, Chucky now seeks revenge on those he blames, surviving teens Jake (Zackary Arthur), Devon (Björgvin Arnarson) and Lexy (Alyvia Alyn Lind), along with his ex-Tiffany ( his sworn enemy).

The series averaged 11.6 million viewers in season 1. Season 2 will premiere on October 5 (trailer) on SYFY and USA Networks.

Article: Andrea Esteban, Vaughn Lowery

ADDITIONAL BJÖRGVIN QUOTES:

“In season one, I was pretty nervous,” Arnarson confessed, “but going into season two, it feels more like second nature, I can focus more and get into the character.” 

“Working with the doll is pretty interesting, you get to see all the things that go behind it. it is not super hard working with it because it feels like a person.”
