Watch Trailer for New Tina Turner Documentary ‘TINA’

A new documentary will chronicle the life and career of singer Tina Turner.

The film, simply titled TINA, is set to premiere on HBO and HBO Max on March 27.

“I’m a girl from a cotton field that pulled myself above the destruction and the mistakes,” Turner explains in the new trailer for the documentary. “And I’m here for you.” You can watch the trailer below.

Born Anna Mae Bullock, Turner began her singing career as a teen, performing in nightclubs in the late ‘50s. Her star would take off in the ‘60s and early ’70s with hits like “A Fool in Love,” “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine,” “Proud Mary” and “River Deep – Mountain High,” all released as part of her duo alongside husband Ike Turner. She’d experience a lull in the late ’70s, only to return with a vengeance on the strength of her massively successful 1984 solo LP Private Dancer.

Often referred to as the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Turner’s life endured plenty of highs and lows. In addition to her acclaimed music, the singer gabbed many headlines over the years due to her violently abusive relationship with Ike (they divorced in 1978). A biopic about her life, What’s Love Got to Do With It, starring actress Angela Bassett was released in 1993.

Bassett is one of the many notable stars to pop up in TINA, providing interviews about the legendary singer’s life. Oprah Winfrey, former MTV News host Kurt Loder, playwright Katori Hall and Turner’s current husband Erwin Bach also appear. The film boasts never-before-seen archival footage, rare audio and personal photos, along with interviews with Turner.

TINA is just the latest addition to a busy 2021 for the singer. Tuner was recently announced a nominee for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Meanwhile, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, which opened on Broadway in 2019 before being put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is tentatively slated to return in the fall.

Axl Rose Set to Appear in New ‘Scooby-Doo’ Episode

Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose is known as one of the most animated frontmen in music. Now he’s literally getting animated in an upcoming episode of Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

In the episode, the Mystery Gang – made up of Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby – heads out on a road trip along Route 66, only to be faced with a mysterious group of mud men that steals the famous Mystery Machine van. The gang stops for help at an isolated diner, where it runs into the legendary GNR singer.

“What’s up, Mystery Gang?” the cartoon Rose – seen lounging on his motorcycle – asks in a new teaser clip. “I was starting to think you guys were a no-show.”

After the group reacts to seeing “singer, songwriter, musician and total rock god, Axl Rose,” viewers discover that the GNR frontman has a preexisting friendship with Scooby and Shaggy.

“Axl is the friend that Scoob and I came here to meet,” Shaggy explains, before exchanging a series of high fives and secret handshakes with the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer.

Later in the episode, members of the gang begin disappearing, eventually leaving just Rose, Scooby and Shaggy to solve the mystery.

You can watch a clip from Rose’s appearance on Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? below.

The episode airs Thursday at 9PM ET on Boomerang and will subsequently be available to stream on Boomerang OTT.

This isn’t Rose’s first foray into the world of animation. In 2018, he appeared on a different Boomerang series, New Looney Tunes, delivering a song called “Rock the Rock” to help save Earth from an oncoming asteroid.

New Tom Petty Documentary to Premiere at SXSW Online

Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free, a new documentary about the late musician, will premiere as a “centerpiece film” during SXSW Online in March.

The festival’s site describes Mary Wharton’s Somewhere You Feel Free as “an intimate view of a musical icon,” drawing from a “newly discovered archive of 16mm film” showing the singer-songwriter at work on 1994’s Wildflowers.

SXSW Online, the 28th edition of the SXSW Film Festival, will take place March 16-20 across web, mobile and premium TV viewing platforms.

Seven films will launch every two hours (from 11AM to 9PM ET), with most released between March 16 and 18, opening with those featuring global access and no audience-capacity limits. The festival will include 75 features, with 57 as world premieres. Full details are available online.

“A film will remain available on-demand until it hits its audience capacity or the event ends,” reads a note on the SXSW site. “Those without a capacity limit will be available for the duration of the event. While SXSW is a global event, certain films will be restricted to access in the United States due to rights and/or filmmaker or distributor discretion.”

“It’s been a year unlike any we’ve experienced, first marked by the cancellation of SXSW 2020,” said Janet Pierson, Director of Film, in a statement. “We feel privileged to have been able to pivot to SXSW Online and present a fantastic treasure trove of programming, including a pared down and wonderful selection of films that we know will delight, entertain and move our attendees. SXSW Online will bring attendees a multifaceted event that speaks to so many areas of creativity in one five-day experience that everyone can access on their laptops, phones and TVs. While we won’t have the wonderful in-person SXSW that we know and love, we can gather together to be inspired by the work.”

SXSW’s other 2021 “headliners” are documentaries focusing on pop stars: Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil and Alone Together (about Charli XCX).

Petty’s estate released an expanded box-set edition of Wildflowers in October.

‘Wayne’s World’ Rebooted for Uber Eats Super Bowl Ad Tease

Mike Myers and Dana Carvey have rebooted their Wayne’s World characters of Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar to promote Uber Eats for the upcoming Super Bowl.

Sitting in the basement set made famous on Saturday Night Live, Myers’ Wayne begins, “2020, man, that was a great year.” Then he and Carvey, who’s wearing an old-school Alice Cooper T-shirt, add in unison, “Not!”

The duo then have some fun with the NFL’s strict protection of its trademarks, noting they can’t actually utter the words “Super Bowl” in the ad. “We just wanted to say that we’ll see you soon for the … game, which for legal reasons cannot be named,” Myers explains.

They refer to the Super Bowl as the “big bowl” and the “gigantic bowl,” noting that those words are “totally legal.” As the clip cuts to a shot of an Uber Eats bag on a table, Carvey says, “We teased it,” suggesting that a bigger ad will run on the day of the game this Sunday.

There’s also a new six-second clip of Wayne and Garth incorporating Uber Eats into the Wayne’s World theme, singing, “Local eats / Wayne’s World / Yummy time / Excellent.”

You can watch both videos below.

Two months ago, Myers and Carvey talked about Wayne’s World on actor Josh Gad‘s Reunited Apart series, where they were joined by the movie’s costars Rob Lowe and Tia Carrere, as well as Cooper, who made a cameo in the film. Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, who showed up on an SNL Wayne’s World sketch, also appeared, as did Queen‘s Brian May, who said that Freddie Mercury saw the “Bohemian Rhapsody” opening-credits movie scene before he died.
