Jordyn’s Buzz – June 20th, 2024

Jordyn’s Buzz – June 20th, 2024

It’s a sad week for Huey Lewis fans – it was announced this week that after less than 100 shows on Broadway, The Heart of Rock and Roll will be closing on June 23rd.

But, with one closing comes another opening! Prince’s Purple Rain is currently being adapted for the stage!

Purple Rain is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and producers are projecting the show will open next spring and then possibly move to Broadway. The show will follow the film closely, but will likely include more of Prince’s music than was featured in the movie because only 9 of Prince’s songs were in it.

Check out this article for more info! There’s tons more to learn about the show.

If you’re looking for something to watch now, Celine Dion’s new documentary I am: Celine Dion which depicts her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome as well as the music that has guided her will be on Prime on June 25th! I checked this morning though and it is already playing in theaters across the state! So if you’re looking for something to do on this rainy weekend and love Celine, check it out!

Speaking of movies, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are set to star in a new film together called RIP. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but we do know that the film is going to be a crime thriller and will start shooting in the fall.

The new Gladiator II trailer was also released this week – the film is set for a November 22nd release, 24 years after the original film was released. This film stars Pedro Pascal, Paul Mescal, Denzel Washington, and more. Check out the trailer below.

Austin Butler is rumored to be joining the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise – you can read more about the potential of that here.

We’re in the world of spin offs and reboots right now and Modern Family just did something really unique! Rather than reuniting for a spin off or special or film, four of the cast members got together for a WhatsApp commercial! Check it out below and read the accompanying article to go along with it.

Lastly, EW posted an article this week that highlighted 25 series with the best final lines – check it out here.

I haven’t seen all of these shows, but some of these lines truly are iconic. My favorite definitely has to be “Hello, Brother” from Vampire Diaries – I couldn’t stop the tears from falling when Ian Somerhalder delivered this line – and I also loved the last line of Young Sheldon. Let us know which ones are your favorite!
