Thank you very very much in a huge success. Are you. Sure I'll see Cleveland. All right take him in every once this is my karaoke -- like my goatee now. Everybody loves this -- this is saying great. It just makes you dance and smile. OK we do in in a while. Again as we have mr. movie. Our own Jude -- and all the great movies that are coming up. It is so great to be revealed today and it's wonderful Friday so many great things. I am very excited about those. Running rebels in the wall and more -- that is the great things yeah there's some people a little bit too high so that they want to pull them instead. It's all cleared to make two movies coming out this weekend ones that people talking about everywhere dawn of the planet of the day. -- in Louisiana and long and in Vancouver. It's the second of the pre boot the new version. And it is it's exciting it's like in the movies that critics are all saying it now on the great action movie but it also has some. Story it has some brains behind it. Until James Franco note James Franco. And unfortunately well. Doesn't have Charlton Heston in a point. There. But we'll try to keep that image. Are. The plot of this but in case people commute this may not mean the first. Part of the reboot. Is there a growing nation this genetically -- -- that led by easier there being the leader. And these -- or threatened by -- human survivors. Humans have been devastated by congress it's in years past the time in the genetically. Be solved a have been in. Promulgate around. And within the state system there is this ought to be civil war going on which group is going to. It's really exciting it is the movies that. It'll respond to younger people to teenagers I think some adult who enjoy it it's extremely well made and I think it could be a fun movie. I've heard two things like one really important thing about this one is that you know even after. Column in The Lord of the Rings and even after King Kong and on all these different sort of animated computer generated characters that -- come so far in the last ten years did -- by adhering to in this movie. -- it's just completely come into its -- I mean how could possibly get any better than this and it's. And it's not you know it's not -- attachment to the rest -- -- like so much of the action in the plot of this film is driven by these computer generated apes. And it's completely believable and it's completely beautiful to look at. And that their -- even YouTube. There's so many different versions of the making and they use these that the side by side of the actor and what's on the screen. And without the actors we would not be seen in the images that are on there and that is a huge difference and some of the one dimensional. Computer generations. Characters. So problem of them I think it'll be a fun movie if you wanna go out and get some air conditioning. -- -- super cool story about that real quick apple had a meeting over at the on. The philharmonic. The woman was that simply simply Nestle and what was I don't know I'm meeting over the area. And their office building is on rampart street which they have blocked off that hole for a very moderate alternatives that pain in the neck. But the guy told me he was like anyone sees something cool on your way downstairs to withstand now over the parking garage concede down on the set. So -- and I wasn't trespassing or anything that was kind of out their peeking over the edge and it's this deserted. Over grown in and that trolleys flipped over on their side and everything's must be -- San Francisco and then. Did the people in the motion capture suits come out and their running around and they're making these eight gestures in these gray ones he's with the ping pong balls all of them. And I solve this go down in the -- A and then and hundreds of people come out of the woodwork and re setting the props and they're tinkering with the pink and so. So cool to see that people within a -- to think that part of that movie was made right here already. One thing also is that the apes communicate for a long time with American sign language. And I'm very excited does look like best friends my -- is a -- there. And who teaches sign language and I've been learning in and somewhat proficient. So it's going to be exciting to meet one that aspect of it it's going to be fun fun popcorn summer movie what. Sounds great what I got. Another movie begin again. It is sort of part two it's from the same writer director who made them musical movie wants. That movie of course became the Broadway hit that 18. Tony award. But this movie is totally different is it does not have the same characters or anything it just something -- in the sense that. It's some. It needs to people who find each other two hospitals that need and make great music together. That's the story it's a drama comedy romance. And it starts to my favorite actors. Keira Knightley. Mark on the rough hello. They're both just. The real deal enacting. They're great look at the more importantly they -- would have kept to their care. And I. There's also pales Steinfeld who -- in TrueCrypt to achieve it she may be listening right now she's filming a movie it's perfect to -- in Louisiana's. Call -- -- his movies are written and if you don't want the inaction of BP you know it's date night. Or if you just store musical other. I'm Adam Levine is in -- he plays -- nine means first boyfriend they kind of breakup. So. I think that was a great choice for people. But I have a certain -- -- to. The third. Suggestion for everybody that's out there. Is. The Emmy nominations came out and that you don't want to go out and get to you know -- in the heat. You can stream also Netflix on demand or. Get to dvds. Of all the different nominations and it's really exciting the issue -- -- 41 nominations. From productions in Louisiana. 41 of them. American horse story had seventeen true detectives had twelve to remain at four Bonnie and Clyde had four and Whitmore Seles. The concert for young artist had one and -- yet there whole series filmed here in little ones they also were nominated so. There's a lot of great. Louisiana flavor there. But if you want them in the just enjoy. The you can go and stream so many of these. A lot of it is greedy bears of course we talked about the true detective story. Previously it's a wonderful wonderful story -- only eight theories. The HBO movie and that may be able. That you have HBO Latino somebody with HBO go borrow it. Is bill also had the normal part and amazing to be yes but Larry Kramer wrote and its story. All but -- great actors to heart breaking toward -- very important. Both of them excellent and comedy. Netflix not -- -- last year the breakthrough with the house support the nominee for best. -- -- to do it this year. Orange is the new black got nominated for best comedy. And -- immediate you know and -- in the in the awards. You don't know what category people are and -- board of new black is. Not your typical comedy by any means infected could be considered drama but it excellent. It's an excellent story of this lady she's. For the middle class. I would kind of described as sort of that really -- young lady but she's in gates kind of a lot yes -- engaged and and then also get pulled into -- gets fingered by her ex girlfriend and gets thrown into jail. In court she gets -- and and and in court I mean. And and so she gets thrown in jail and serving time and ends up and saying prison and that her ex girlfriend's dad. -- running. For the for the same parent running. Scheme. But there's lots of little intrigue some crazy wacky characters. And it's well worth watching point of the new black. Let me -- I have to interrupt because. Helen Centennial our producer has said I've never seen -- to new black she's watches it religiously is Angela we will never go to president. You've got to put up the thought it left a a number of the first. One -- one -- -- shorter. It's not a miniseries on me episodes Sherlock the BBC. Series that's. It's just that in modern day London. It on Netflix. It's great fun to watch the first episode you'll be hooked it and after he got nominated for a couple of acting awards in the third. So. Although and counterproductive to most nominated series game game of -- -- So lots of great things if you wanna stay in and check out those nominated for the Emmys. Otherwise. No mucking around just -- -- Jude -- -- you are gift and I lines you really are. You need to thank you so much that I everyone stay with this were knocked on the newsroom now financial under the W. In superstitious. And -- and who can do well let me tell you. I love that music to -- one of the most fun and events in the city. On is not this Saturday next July 19. It's the mr. legs contest and I am stunned. That billion has never been I was want to say because you have. You have all of these sexiest legs hearing his legs -- useless it is the best.
