Will Smith previews his version of ‘Aladdin’ classic ‘Friend Like Me’

Published

“It’s the moment Disney fans are waiting for, and one many are coming at with eyebrows raised — Will Smith’s version of “Friend Like Me.”

The star of the new live action Aladdin takes on the coveted role of the Genie, one immortalised by the late great Robin Williams.

“Robin Williams smashed that role,” Smith told Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, and that Smith himself originally didn’t want to touch the role. “Hell no,” he said, when first asked. And fair enough, people have had their eyes critically fixed on any Genie footage of Smith from square one.

Nonetheless, what pushed him over the line? Messing around with “Friend Like Me,” Smith had the team run the drum beat of The Honey Drippers’ 1973 track “Impeach The President” on top.

He gave Fallon a little preview, and while no one can ever really hold a flame to Williams’ version, but Smith’s version is undeniably his.

Aladdin opens May 24.”

“We’ve already seen it in a heavily stylized promo shot, but the CW debuted Ruby Rose’s Batwoman look in this short teaser for the upcoming series.

Don’t expect much in the way of early looks at the stories will be told. This 30-second snippet is more about setting the mood, starting with a slow pan up the side of a building, a fluttering cape, and a quick look at the iconic Bat Signal.

Then we see our hero turn and face the camera and… boom. Meet Batwoman. We don’t know when she’ll be here, but the teaser promises that she’s “coming soon.”

MIT Avengers Hack

Published

on

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has some seriously dedicated Marvel fans who aren’t afraid to go big to show their love for the franchise.

On Sunday, The Boston Globe reported that a group of “pranksters” transformed MIT’s Great Dome into Captain America’s iconic red, white, and blue shield on Saturday night in honor of Avengers: Endgame.

Now, thanks to a video uploaded to YouTube by MIT sophomore Raymond Huffman, Avengers fans all around the world can see the display.

The dome redecoration was carried out by an ambitious group consisting of dozens of people, who call themselves the MIT “hackers.” They reportedly started planning the Captain America tribute about a year ago, after learning when the final Avengers film would be released, and have been hard at work for the past few months making sure everything was set for the big reveal.

One of the members anonymously explained to The Boston Globe that the current generation of MIT students grew up watching the franchise, so they wanted to show thanks for the role it played in their lives. And it looks like the display of gratitude was a real success, and even gained the attention and praise of Captain America himself, actor Chris Evans, who thinks the transformation is “very cool!”

For those unfamiliar with MIT’s Dome Hacks, this isn’t the first time the building has been tampered with. In the past, the school’s Great Dome has been transformed into R2D2, had a fake police car placed on top, a piano, and more.

The hacker associated with the latest Captain America-themed dome redecoration told The Boston Globe that “putting things on the dome is a big challenge,” and, “the priority is safety for people, and safety for MIT structures.”

“We hope people look at it and it gets their imagination going,” the hacker told the publication.
