A Worthy Watch for Comedy Lovers, Isn’t it Romantic, Starred by Rebel Wilson

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

 Isn’t it Romantic is a movie worth appearing in your watch list this year. In this comedy movie, Rebel Wilson stars as Natalie alongside other renowned personalities such as Adam Devine (plays Josh), Liam Hemsworth who plays the role of Blake and Priyanka Chopra acting as Isabella, a yoga ambassador.

Natalie is a cynical architect who has actively hated romantic comedies. She never misses an opportunity to label them as fantasies. However, her life takes a turnaround when she has an encounter with a thief who knocks her and become unconscious. On waking up, she finds herself right in the middle of a romantic comedy, and if that is not enough, she is playing the leading role.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rebel Wilson portrays the situation Natalie is in as the worst nightmare and that she spends the rest of the comedy trying to figure out how to get out of it.

In the romantic comedy, Natalie gets caught up in a love triangle with a stranger, Blake, and Josh, her best friend. Note that Josh is crazy about the yoga ambassador, Isabella. Worse still, Natalie finds herself in the trap of a PG-13 romantic comedy. While Rebel Wilson has appeared in several other movies such as Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids, Isn’t it Romantic is perhaps giving her the opportunity of a lifetime – taking the spotlight!

Todd Strauss-Schulson and Rebel Wilson watched and rewatched tons of romantic comedy movies to ensure adequate preparation. The film embraces nods from classics such as Notting Hill, When Harry Met Sally, and Pretty Woman.

According to the director, Strauss-Schulson, Isn’t it Romantic is a movie that emphasizes the importance of falling in love with oneself. He also noted that the romantic comedy is about romantic comedies as well as the romantic stories we narrate to ourselves.

Strauss-Schulson behind the scenes team includes photography director, Simon Duggan, the production designer, Sharon Seymour, Andrew Marcus, the editor and Leah Katznelson who serves as the costume designer.

Isn’t It Romantic is to be released this year (2019) on Valentine’s Day.

Rebel Wilson did not start out as we know her today – Rebel Wilson was actually one of the shy kids in her family. Now in her family, most of them had really strong personalities and a lot of them really had great sense of humor and public presence. Needless to say, Rebel Wilson actually started out as a black sheep in her family who tends to keep quiet and tends to just sit in the back and watch he family members in the spotlight.

Which has played to her favor in her career, her true personality has been loved by her audience ever since.

Rebel Wilson will again play to her strengths as she will play another girl who is humorous and easily loved by the audience.

There is nothing but a brighter future for the Australian bombshell, Rebel Wilson. She is still set to approach her full bloom and shine brighter like the sunspot she is.

EDM-Pop Legends, The Chainsmokers, Shine on with Their Diamond Certification

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Fans of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, also known in the EDM-Pop world as the dynamic duo The Chainsmokers, were thrilled to discover that the duet’s smash hit “Closer” had topped at least 10 million units delivered in the United States, giving their single a coveted diamond certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). While the RIAA seemed slow to break the news themselves, both The Chainsmokers and Halsey (whose intense vocals are featured in the single as well) proudly shared pictures on their Instagram accounts, smiling and holding tightly onto their plaques which commemorate this momentous occasion. Previously, the RIAA had recognized the song’s seven-time platinum status back in March of 2017. However, since that time, this status has grown to a ten-time platinum single, a feat for which many musicians can only hope.

For a little over two years, “Closer” had continuously received praise and recognition on the dance music scene. First, in the later part of 2016’s summer, it rocketed to the top of the Hot 100. Then it later went on to become an addition to the list of songs tied for fourth place in endurance as the number one hit in the United States in all-genre singles. Grammy nominations for both The Chainsmokers and Halsey were received because of the single, and while they did not win these iconic honors, they did collect several other awards along the way. One of these accolades included that of Billboard’s longest-standing number one hit in the Hot Dance/Electronic genre up until recent months, when it was surpassed by the single “The Middle” by Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey.

While The Chainsmokers were no strangers to having a single in the top 10 hits before releasing “Closer”, this was Hasley’s first time to branch out from her growing fanbase into the dance and EDM culture. Because of this great achievement, Hasley is now a household name.
