Bambi Becomes Murderous in New ‘Bambi: The Reckoning’

Hunters must move quickly. There will soon be a new Great Prince of the Forest. Additionally, he is introducing the sting of murder.

In the 80 years since the first film was released in 1942, Bambi and his woodland friends Thumper and Flower have maintained a pleasing image.

But now, the once-cute deer is turning to the dark side in the upcoming Bambi: The Reckoning, EW said. The news first came to us from horror site Dread Central.

The bloody adaptation of Felix Salten’s 1923 novel Bambi begins filming in January. The film is from ITN Studios and Jagged Edge Productions, directed by filmmaker Scott Jeffrey.

Rhys Frake-Waterfield continues to bleed childhood nostalgia while serving as the film’s producer. In particular, Frake-Waterfield directs his twist on the infamous horror of another children’s film, Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey. 

“The film will be an incredibly dark retelling of the 1928 story we all know and love,” Jeffrey said in an interview with the outlet. “Finding inspiration from the design used in Netflix’s The Ritual, Bambi will be a vicious killing machine that lurks in the wilderness. Prepare for Bambi on rabies!”

Although the production did not reveal further plot details, it is well known that Bambi was traumatized by the death of his mother.In the Disney cartoon, a hunter killed Bambi’s mother.

That plot brings vengeance with it. And honestly, the more we think about it, the more it makes sense. Do it, Bambi!

Horror in Childhood Films

The Ritual, on the other hand, was famous for its skinny-looking giant creatures. This latest version of Bambi doesn’t look cute, suggesting he’s not your average forest-exploring deer.

If Bambi looked that terrifying, chills go down our spine to think what Thumper would look like. 

And if you wonder how it’s possible, here is the answer. Bambi – like Winnie-the-Pooh – passed the public domain this year. Public domain enables other creators to use the characters however they want, family-friendly or gory. 

As you can see, Pooh slashes his victims with a sledgehammer. 

Bambi: The Reckoning is among the series of newly adapted childhood films. Previously, Disney made a photorealistic adaptation of their original movies. It includes The Lion King in 2019 and The Jungle Book in 2016.

But, frankly, seeing a realistic portrayal of Bambi’s mom’s death may make it a gory movie.

The first Bambi saw David Hand as director and Walt Disney as producer. 

Furthermore, the film bagged three nominations for the Academy Awards. It includes Best Sound (Sam Slyfield), Best Song (“Love is a Song” by Donald Novis), and Original Music Score. 

The American Film Institute in June 2008 introduced its list of “10 Top 10” – the greatest ten films in every ten classic American film genres. And the results came after surveying more than 1,500 individuals from the creative community. Bambi ranked third in animation. 

Moreover, the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress admitted the film in December 2011 as being “culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.”

Amazon Reveals Potential Layoff After Slack in E-Commerce

Currently, Amazon is preparing to eliminate thousands of office jobs. According to reports, it’s because of concerns about an economic recession and falling sales.

Moreover, layoffs could affect 3% of office workers at e-commerce companies, or about 10,000 people, US media said, citing unnamed sources. The job cuts would potentially affect departments like personal devices and e-commerce. 

The e-commerce giant has already imposed a hiring freeze and halted some warehouse expansions.

Additionally, they warned against over-hiring during the pandemic. It had taken steps to shut down parts of its business – postponing projects like a personal delivery robot.

Last week, the giant said cutting spending would be a top priority at its annual review of business operations.

“As part of this year’s review, we’re, of course, taking into account the current macro-environment and considering opportunities to optimize costs,” the giant said in a statement at the time.

Stagnant E-commerce 

The number of jobs affected by the layoffs has yet to be announced, according to media reports. Amazon is struggling to sell online after its business surged during the pandemic.

While its revenue increased 15% in the latest quarter, the giant watches out for different outlook as the slowdown spreads into other regions. In addition, it has affected its cloud computing unit, Amazon Web Services, which has fueled its revenue for a long time. 

Founder Jeff Bezos recently resigned as chief executive but remained board chairman. The entrepreneur took to social media to say it was a time to “batten down the hatches.” 

Amazon is not the only tech firm that has grappled through difficult times. Meta – the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp – has decided to trim down 11,000 employees. It is identified as the greatest redundancy in its history, with roughly 13% of its labor force. 

Generally, US-headquartered tech firms cut over 28,000 jobs this year. However, it has reduced over two times a year ago, per a report from Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

Good Cause

In an interview with CNN, Bezos said he would donate his wealth to fight climate change and reduce inequality. The businessman had previously responded for not promising to donate his fortune.

Meanwhile, Warren Buffet, Microsoft’s Bill Gates, and Bezos’ ex-wife MacKenzie Scott all vowed to dedicate their fortune to a good cause. 

Bezos announced his decision following a $100 million donation to the country music icon and philanthropist Dolly Parton to use for charity. 

When CNN asked if he wanted to donate most of his riches within his lifetime, the businessman said: “Yeah, I do.” But he didn’t give any details on what cause he would give away his money to. 

“The hard part is figuring out how to do it in a levered way,” he said.

Previously, the magnate gave away $10 billion to the Bezos Earth Fund. He helped launch the foundation in 2020 to counter climate change. 

Furthermore, it came after many censured Bezos and other business people for spending massive amounts of money on trips to space rather than addressing problems on Earth.

Democrats Remains in Senate Majority After Nevada Victory

Even with an absolutely slim lead, the Democrats won their narrow majority in the US Senate.

On Saturday night, the Senate decided the chamber after Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto defeated Republican and former attorney general Adam Laxalt, according to a race call from The Associated Press.

Saturday’s race gives Democrats 50 Senate seats. Along with Vice President Harris’ deciding vote, that’s enough for a majority.

Meanwhile, the United States House of Representatives has a tough race ahead of it. The Republicans have a narrow lead over the majority.

Nevada was one of the Republicans’ most coveted targets. So the Cortez Masto takeover was an electoral deadlock. Her competition with Laxalt was head to head.

According to the AP race call, Cortez Masto garnered around 5,000 votes. 

It will be a blow to the Senate for Democrats when Raphael Warnock stomps Republican Herschel-Walker in the Dec. 6 race in Georgia.

Factors in Triumph

Among the other factors that helped the Democrats win their majority was the issue of abortion rights. Following the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade in June, researchers found a significant increase in voter registration among women and youth.

Although a national survey showed that inflation and the economy were top priorities, the issue of abortion rights really made it for Democrats. Furthermore, it played a vital role in urging voters and raising chances for Democratic candidates. 

Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., told NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday that it had been “a great week for democracy.” Moreover, it marked her party’s win to strong candidates “who had experience, who knew how to get things done.” 

“The reason there wasn’t a red wave is because Democrats had a ‘blue wave of accomplishment.’ And we basically defied the tides of history,” she stated, reiterating a statement from Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer. 

Senate Objectives

According to Klobuchar, the party’s mission was to reduce the cost of pharmaceuticals and protect Social Security and Medicare. Furthermore, they want to “do all we can to get our economy in a place that works for everyone.” 

Another Democrats’ mandate is to systematize Roe v. Wade

“We don’t know what’s going to happen with the House. We don’t know if the Republicans will play ball. I’d get rid of the filibuster to do it,” he added. 

And third is to safeguard democracy. 

“A lot of the election deniers lost,” Klobuchar said. “So, it shows Americans care about democracy.” 

If Republicans grab the House, it’s nearly impossible for the two chambers to find a mutual agreement. Meanwhile, a Democratic grab of the House would maintain President Biden’s trifecta of power for two more years. 

Furthermore, a solid Democratic majority in the Senate secures Democrats’ capacity to back Biden’s nominees. It includes other future vacancies in the US Supreme Court. 

Former president Donald Trump’s impact on his party’s odds is now under close observation. This is so because Democrats beat his hand-selected candidates. 

“Republicans lost the Senate in 2010 and 2012 because they put up poor candidates,” former GOP campaign strategist Liam Donovan said. 

“The difference [in 2022] is that President Trump, I think, locked these fields into questionable candidates. You had people that might have been the strongest staying out because they didn’t want to go anywhere near this. You had a number of strong governors who might have come in and easily won these seats that stayed out.”

Emma Corrin Wants Gender-Neutral Award Categories

It’s the 21st century now, and Emma Corrin hopes the award show categories will reflect that.

Notably, Corrin identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them.

As such, the actor said in an interview with the BBC that they “hope for a future” where award ceremonies considered gender-neutral categories.

“I don’t think the categories are inclusive enough at the moment,” they stated. “It’s about everyone being able to feel acknowledged and represented.” 

Corrin earned nominations for their films My Policeman and Lady Chatterley’s Lover this year. But they eventually won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series for their portrayal of Princess Diana in 2021’s The Crown.

Nonetheless, during that period, Corrin agreed to use pronouns she/her.

However, as time has become more modern, some film and television awards have gradually moved away from gender categories.

Since 2017, the MTV Movie & TV Awards have leaned toward gender-neutral categories. Additionally, the Film Independent Spirit Awards announced in August that he would set his gender-neutral category in the 2023 nominations.

In addition, due to this change, the male and female categories will be changed to Best Supporting Performance, Best Lead Performance, and Best Breakthrough Performance.

As a result, more and more awards ceremonies are drawn to gender-neutral shows. These include the British Independent Film Awards, Gotham Film & Media Institute and Berlin Film Festival.

Community Representation

Moreover, according to Corrin, they believe that not addressing category titles first contributes in part to the limited representation of LGBTQIA+ in the film and television industry. 

“The conversation needs to be about having more representation in the material itself, in the content that we are seeing for nonbinary people, for queer people, for trans people. Because then I think that will change a lot,” they stated. 

“When those parts come up, meaning more people and more actors are playing those roles. Then I think there will be more of an urgency with which these questions will be addressed.” 

Corrin came out of the closet as nonbinary in July 2021. They posted a picture of themselves sporting a chest binder. Their decision is partially because “it was a journey that was at the very center of who I am, who I was when I started talking about it.” 

Additionally, they reiterated that they would “never sacrifice integrity or honesty” by placing a façade on their gender identity in an attempt to bag future projects. 

“My being nonbinary is not a rejection of femininity or my femininity in any way,” they stated. “It’s sort of an embrace of that.” 

Corrin Success

Meanwhile, the star played several roles in film, television, and theater, earning them awards and nominations.

Indigenous Fashion Designers and Artisans Campaigns Anti-Plagiarism with Original FW

Surrounded by multicolored haute couture, artisans and indigenous designers make Mexico City shine with a fashion event.

Moreover, they were trying to carve out a future in an industry riddled with plagiarism, instability and underfunded.

Government-organized fashion week Original showed artists’ designs and called out industry issues with the slogan: “No bargaining, no plagiarism, no cultural appropriation.” 

Recently, famous labels such as Ralph Lauren and the fast fashion company Shein have been accused of plagiarizing the designs of native Mexicans. The move threatens the country’s traditional textile market.

“We need people to understand this is not a mass process,” Hilan Cruz, an Original board member, said in an interview with Reuters. “What we do takes time, and that time should be valued both economically and in terms of product value.” 

The Puebla state artisan continued: “This work is inherited.” 

“It not only helps pay for our day-to-day life, it represents our people, our community, our space, our life vision.” 

According to Cruz, Original seeks to avoid plagiarism by spreading awareness of the details and quality of artisanal fashion.

However, economic problems in competing with the wider fashion industry meant that the descendants of artisans sought more stable jobs. As a result, children would traditionally become apprentices in the trade.

What Original Wants

Peruvian Rosa Choque is the only craftswoman in her South American country to create patterns inspired by her Chiribaya ancestors. These drawings are 500 years old. Unfortunately, she has no successor.

Her two daughters moved out and got into other work. This is because artisan work didn’t provide enough financial stability for those who work in the field. Furthermore, the artwork is often underappreciated, if not unappreciated. 

Choque also works a second job. 

Elsewhere, Rosa Gonzales, a Mexican artisan, takes on the job with her son. 

“He is the one who comes up with the ideas. I shape them and put them together,” she said. This is regarding the inspiration from regional wildlife. 

Previously, the family made art canvasses. However, they jumped into clothing due to more accessible sales work. 

“With our designs, anyone can wear an haute couture dress for gala parties, [and] graduations. We have even made them for brides,” Gonzales stated. 

However, insufficient funds bring down innovation and stagnate growth. Moreover, it prevents designers from putting their money into finer manufacturing. 

“I wanted to be modern while still maintaining my culture,” Licet Alvarez, a Peruvian designer, said in an interview with Reuters. She wore face paint and a Kitsarenchy, a traditional clothing of the Anaro people of Peru’s central highlands, with beads.

“But sometimes, we don’t have access to the necessary materials.” 

Ancient indigenous designs plagiarism expressed outrage from Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico’s president. 

“They plagiarize designs from artisans and indigenous people from Hidalgo, Chiapas, Guerrero,” he said in a news conference the previous week. 

They allow labels to use pre-Hispanic or native designs. However, “there has to be recognition of their intellectual work, creativity and no plagiarism,” the president said.

‘A Christmas Story’ Set Address Fans Should Know About

A Christmas Story has become a household Christmas movie since its release in 1983.

An adaptation of Jean Shepherd’s 1966’s novel, In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash, the prod released the film in November 1983. Nonetheless, it was a box office success, earning around $20 million in theaters.

However, akin to other sleeper hits, the film later appeared on home viewing and cable television airings. In addition, it included a 24-hour marathon every Christmas. 

Fans return to the Christmas Story universe with the latest sequel, A Christmas Story Christmas. It is currently available on HBO Max. The new film sees Billingsley and his original castmates in their roles nearly 40 years later.

However, if watching Ralphie’s tale from your living room isn’t enough, you’re fortunate. Someone modified the Parker family’s home residence into a Christmas Story museum. And you can spend the night there – in Randy and Ralphie’s beds. 

Flick’s no longer has margaritas, but some Christmas stories have become tourist attractions.

A Christmas Story Sets

Here are some of them. 

Viewing of the Leg Lamp (Cleveland) 

In the film. Filmmaker Bob Clark appears as “the Swede” who queries the Old Man (Darren McGavin) about his “major award.” Of course, he is talking about the legendary lamp that adult Ralphie calls “the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window.” 

Currently, a Bob Clark memorial bench stands on the site where the “major award” scene was filmed. 

Higbee’s Department Store (Cleveland) 

They filmed the Christmas parade scene outside Cleveland’s iconic Higbee’s department store on the public square at 3 a.m. 

Warren G. Harding Elementary School (St. Catharine’s, Canada, and Hammond, Indiana) 

Self-proclaimed “megafan” Tyler Schwartz and his then-fiancee, now-wife Jordie, went on a quest to find the location in the movie. Fortunately, they found it. 

Christmas Tree Lot (Toronto, Canada) 

The Road Trip researchers deciphered the location of the Christmas tree lot where Ralphie and his family bought their tree following the Old Man’s bargain.

The Flat Tire on the Bridge (Toronto, Canada) 

Notably, after they went for Christmas tree shopping, the family experiences a dilemma of a flat tire. 

Bo’Ling Chop Suey Palace (Hammond, Indiana, and Toronto, Canada) 

The final stop for the Christmas Story location tour appears at the film’s end. Following the Bumpus hounds’ escape with the Parker family turkey, the Old Man says, “We are going out to eat!” Then they end up in a Chinese restaurant. 

Ralphie’s House (Cleveland) 

In 2004, the Cleveland house where they shot the film went for sale on eBay. So, Christmas Story fan Brian Jones purchased it for $150,000. 

Afterward, he worked to renew the iconic home and launched it as A Christmas Story House & Museum in 2006. 

During the day, the home serves as a museum, highlighting artifacts from the film, photos handed by the movie’s actors, and items for the true spirit. 

The Bumpus House (Cleveland) 

In the film, the Bumpuses weren’t quite featured. However, their presence next dorm remains strong. It is because of the barking of their hound dogs sometimes, if not all the time.

Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Brings Online Presale to Chaos with High Demands

Swifties have had a rollercoaster week.

Fans eager to get tickets to Taylor Swift’s Eras tour during Friday’s public auction will have to hang on to their horses. Ticketmaster announced the cancellation on Thursday.

“Due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand, tomorrow’s public on-sale for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour has been canceled,” the company said.

But they did not reveal any further details about the postponement.

The news follows a week of uncertainty for many Swifties. Originally, advance tickets were available to users who qualified for the Ticketmaster Verified Fan program. However, minutes into the process, people started complaining about site errors and lengthy waiting times. 

Fans said they stood in line for over 5 hours.

In addition, just hours after the sale went on sale, Ticketmaster announced that buyers who wanted tickets to the West Coast show would only be able to start purchasing until 3:00 PM. local time instead of 10:00 am on the original schedule. It includes shows in Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Santa Clara, California. 

To cap it all off, Capital One cardholders have moved their presale from Tuesday to Wednesday. Unfortunately, the sale is only available for a few hours.

On Thursday, Ticketmaster released a statement seeking to explain the chaos. Plus, it turns out Swift’s tour broke a Ticketmaster record. More than two million Eras tour tickets were sold on Tuesday. It is the best-selling show by an artist in a single day.

Record-Breaking Eras Tour 

To be verified and participate in the presale, Ticketmaster pre-registered individuals “to help manage high demand shows – identifying real humans and weeding out bots. Keeping bots out of queues and avoiding overcrowding helps to make waits shorter and on sales smoother.” 

According to the company, about 3.5 million users pre-registered. It also sent codes to 1.5 million people while the rest waited in line.

“Historically, working with Verified Fan invited codes has worked as we’ve been able to manage the volume coming into the site to shop for tickets,” Ticketmaster stated. 

“However, this time, the staggering number of bot attacks as well as fans who didn’t have invite codes drove unprecedented traffic on our site, resulting in 3.5 billion total system requests – 4x our previous peak.” 

The company continued: “It usually takes us about an hour to sell through a stadium show. But we slowed down some sales and pushed back others to stabilize the systems. The trade-off was longer wait times in queue for some fans.” 

Ticketmaster further explained that considering the traffic volume they had this week, Swift must perform in more than 900 stadium shows to address the demand. 

“While it’s impossible for everyone to get tickets to these shows, we know we can do more to improve the experience, and that’s what we’re focused on,” the company said. 

The Swifties’ flocking came after Swift set additional dates on the Eras tour, not only once but twice. She wants to set a sum of 52 dates in the US today. Swift is yet to announce international tour stops.

Britney Spears Breaks Off Speculations on Biopic

There won’t be a biopic of Britney Spears anytime soon.

The “Oops! I Did It Again” singer officially breaks off speculation about the upcoming biopic, at least while she’s alive. She posted a lengthy caption on Instagram on Tuesday.

“I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life,” she said. “Dude, I’m not dead!!!” 

She didn’t identify any of these individuals, but Spears released the comments a day after Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show. The actress stated that she wants to portray Spears on the big screen. 

“I want to play a real person, and I think, for me, Britney. [It] would be Britney Spears,” Brown stated during a segment on the show. “I think her story, first of all, resonates with me.”

Brown became a global sensation as a child when Stranger Things managed to catch the world’s attention.

In addition, the actress said she could understand Spears’ fast track to superstardom.

“Just growing up in the public eye, watching her videos, watching interviews of how when she was younger – I mean, same thing with you,” Brown shared with Drew Barrymore. 

“I see the scramble for words [during interviews]. And I don’t know her, but when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way and hers only.” 

Should Spears change her mind, she would be the first artist to release a biopic while she was alive. Notably, her “Hold Me Closer” duet artist Elton John dropped the movie Rocketman in 2019. The film has been critically acclaimed.

But for now, it looks like Spears fans anticipating a movie on the icon should watch her music videos instead.

It’s Britney, B-tch

Britney Jean Spears is often referred to as the “Princess of Pop”. This is due to her credit for influencing pop revival during the 1990s and 2000s.

Following appearances in stage productions and TV shows, Britney inked a contract with Jive Records in 1997. She was 15 at the time. 

Her first two albums are 1999’s …Baby One More Time and 2000’s Oops!… I Did It Again. Furthermore, the albums sit in line with the all-time best-selling albums. In addition to that, it made Britney, the all-time best-selling teenage artist. 

And for fifteen years, Oops!… I Did It Again held the record for the fastest-selling album by a female artist in the United States. 

Britney was among the executive producers of her fifth studio album, Blackout (2007). Moreover, the album was called her best work. 

After an array of publicized personal issues, album promotion was scarce, and they involuntarily placed Britney in a conservatorship. Since then, the artist has dropped chart-topping albums. 

It includes 2008’s Circus and 2011’s Femme Fatale. Femme Fatale became her best era of singles in the US charts. 

Moreover, she started a four-year concert residency called Britney: Piece of Me at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. This is in support of her subsequent two albums, 2013’s Britney Jean and 2016’s Glory

In 2019, Britney’s legal war on her conservatorship started to become more publicized. Ultimately, it sparked the creation of the #FreeBritney movement. 

Fortunately, in 2021, the court decided to break off the conservatorship after her public testimony of accusing her management and family of abuse.

James Cameron Recounts DiCaprio Casting in ‘Titanic’

Leonardo DiCaprio will forever be Jack Dawson. And Jack Dawson will forever be Leonardo DiCaprio. Facts are always facts. And that’s right.

However, James Cameron recently revealed that DiCaprio’s newfound attitude to the limelight nearly cost him the role that made him a movie sensation.

In 1995, the Titanic put Cameron at great risk as he tried to find his destined lover. He pondered Gwyneth Paltrow for Rose DeWitt Bucketer until he met Kate Winslet. The director described Winslet as “fantastic.” 

Meanwhile, DiCaprio is one of the actors on Cameron’s list, and he’s at the top of it.

“There was a meeting with Leo. And there was a screen test with Leo,” Cameron said in an interview with GQ. 

“The meeting was funny because I am sitting in my conference room, waiting to meet an actor. And I look around, and all the women in the entire office are in the meeting for some reason.” 

“There’s a female executive producer, okay, fine, but our accountant? They all wanted to meet Leo. It was hysterical. I looked around, and I went, ‘I think I already know the answer to the question here.’”

DiCaprio Arrogant

Although DiCaprio charmed everyone, Cameron wondered if he and Winslet had the kind of chemistry that drawing nude figures could sell.

DiCaprio went back, believing he would meet his leading lady. However, Cameron wanted him to only read for the part. He who was the Oscar-nominated actor in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, who drew much attention as Romeo in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet?

According to Cameron, DiCaprio told him, “Oh, I don’t read.” So Cameron shook the booming heartthrob’s hand and stated, “Well, thanks for coming by.” 

The director said a surprised DiCaprio responded, “Wait, wait, wait, if I don’t read, I don’t get the part. Just like that?” 

Cameron said he told DiCaprio what it was for him and the director after Titanic was completed. 

The film was “a giant movie that is going to take two years of my life. And you’ll be gone doing five other things while I’m doing post-production. So, I’m not going to f— up by making the wrong decision in casting. So, you’re going to read, or you’re not going to get the part,” he said. 

Then, DiCaprio had no choice but to drag his bangs to the screen test. 

According to Cameron, “every ounce of his entire being is entirely negative right up until I said, ‘Action.’ And he turned into Jack. And Kate just lit up. And they went into this whole thing, and he played the scene. Dark clouds had opened up, a ray of sun came down and lit up Jack. I’m like, ‘All right, he’s the guy.’” 

From then on, history unfolded. And as Celine Dion sings it, it “will go on and on and on.”

Harry Styles Fully Committed to Giving Harryween Spirit

Have you joined the Halloween spirit? Because Harry Styles did it.

The My Policeman actor swapped his uniform for a sweet leather jacket, black jeans and a sleek haircut. Styles played Grease’s Danny Zuko. Of course, this isn’t the first time the actor dressed up. It is part of his annual “Harryween” concert celebration. 

Styles’ look was a tribute to Danny’s latest outfit in the 1978 film musical, but with a Harry twist. The singer’s leather jacket and jeans are designed with ‘Harryween’ in bright red gemstones on the back.

The award-winning entertainer didn’t just dress up as a fan-favorite greaser on Monday night. He also stars in a fantastic rendition of Olivia Newton-John’s “Hopelessly Devoted to You” from the movie to the sold-out Kia forums.

Photos of Newton-John – who died in August – were shown on a large screen above.

The styles cater to Danny’s character throughout the evening by referencing some lines from Grease in his performance. References of him included ruffling his hair in “Satelite,” flipping a finger gun in the middle of “Daydream,” and playing the Hand Jive in “Adore You.”

Harryween Isn’t Only for Harry

However, he wasn’t alone in dressing up for the spooky season. The singer’s band entered the fun with their Grease-inspired looks. 

Sarah Jones – the drummer – wore Sandy’s signature black spandex outfit. Meanwhile, Elin Sanberg – the bassist – portrayed Rizzo and Ny Oh – the instrumentalist played Frenchie. Mitch Rowland – the guitarist – played Coach Calhoun, while Yaffra – the keyboardist – portrayed Eugene Felsnic. And Pauli Lovejoy – the percussionist – donned a Pink Lady outfit. 

Styles created the tradition of Harryween. Last year, he played on two Halloween-inspired shows at the Madison Square Garden in New York. 

During the first night, Styles and the whole band rocked the stage as characters from The Wizard of Oz. Styles dressed as Dorothy and sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” 

The second night saw Styles wearing a Pierrot clown outfit – which Gucci designed. Furthermore, he played a cracker rendition of Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” 

Harryween has, therefore, become a signature event for Styles and his band.

Harry’s History

Styles gained traction after he competed for The X Factor. Later, he exited the show with a boy band named One Direction. 1D was composed of Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne.

The band became one of the world’s most famous boy groups, selling smash hit after smash-hit. However, they announced an indefinite break in 2016, not long after Malik left the band. 

In 2017, the singer dropped his self-titled solo album via Columbia Records. The album debuted at the top spot in the UK and the US. Meanwhile, his second album, Fine Line (2019), debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200. 

Fine Line brought in the largest first-week sales by an English male artist title for Styles. In addition, the album made it to Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” in 2020. 

Styles earned several awards in his 6-year-long solo career. It includes two Brit Awards, a Grammy Award, an Ivor Novello Award, and an American Music Award. 

Furthermore, he has appeared in movies like 2017’s Dunkirk and 2022’s Don’t Worry, Darling and My Policeman.
