Change In The Game: The Art. The Audience. The Artist. The Change.

A short film by w. feagins, jr. commissioned by A3C for the 1st Annual A3C Hip-Hop Film Festival.

Since its origins in the 1970s, Hip-Hop was once viewed as merely a passing fad. Now, nearly 40 years later it has proven it’s here to stay and it’s a force to be reckoned with. Hip-Hop has grown from its humble beginnings to have a global impact but, as with any growth there comes change. While artists and fans alike dispute whether the changes have been for the better or not, there is no denying their effect on the genre.

Change in the Game discusses some of the changes that have affected how Hip-Hop is created and received as well as factors that influenced those changes such as, technology, commercial success and the relationship between the artists new and old.

Rose McGowan talks Barbarella and Conan The Barbarian

Total Film recently caught up with Rose McGowan, who told us all about Conan The Barbarian and her stalled Barbarella reboot.

On her frightful Conan character, half-woman, half-witch Marique, she said: “I think she’s quite majestic… She is a bit startling at first but I think she’s quite beautiful in her own way.”

Comparing her co-star Jason Momoa to original Conan Arnold Schwarzenegger, McGowan told us: “Arnold is very muscular, but Jason is a beautiful man. His muscles are very different – of the non-steroidal variety…

Todd Phillips confirms he’d be interested in Hangover 3

With The Hangover Part II opening worldwide next week, director Todd Phillips has spoken out about the possibility of a third and final Hangover movie.

While quizzed at a press conference for Part II, Phillips was surprisingly positive regarding the idea of continuing the series with Part III.

Though the director admits that “quite honestly we really haven’t talked about it as we just finished the movie two weeks ago”, he goes on to add that a third movie could be a trilogy capper.

“The third would very much be a finale and an ending,” Phillips says. “The most I could say about it - and I haven’t discussed it with these actors - is that it is not following that template but very much a new idea.”
