Mike Myers spoofs the self-help industry with the creation of Guru Pitka, his first original character since Austin Powers. Orphaned at a young age, Maurice (Myers) studies with Guru Tugginmypuddha (Ben Kingsley) at an ashram in India where his classmate is a young Deepak Chopra. Pitka becomes a world-renowned guru in his own right, but despite his best efforts, he repeatedly comes in second to Chopra in the guru rankings. But his manager has a plan: the only difference between Pitka and Chopra is that the latter has appeared on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW. Pitka's key to an Oprah show appearance is Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco), star player of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team. Estranged from his wife, Prudence (Meagan Good), who has started dating French-Canadian Jacques 'Le Coq' Grande (Justin Timberlake), Roanoke's game has suffered terribly, putting his team's bid for the playoffs and the Stanley Cup in jeopardy. If Pitka can reunite the estranged couple in time for Roanoke to help win the Stanley Cup, he'll get more than just a big paycheque; he'll finally be on Oprah.Myers created Guru Pitka after embarking on his own spiritual search following the death of his father. He counts Chopra, who appears briefly in the film, as a personal friend. Jessica Alba stars as the owner of the Maple Leafs, and Verne Troyer is their coach. Playing sportscasters, Stephen Colbert and Jim Gaffigan share some of the film's funniest moments, while Timberlake holds his own on the comic front. Watch for brief appearances from Jessica Simpson, Val Kilmer, Mariska Hargitay (whose name Pitka assumes as his greeting), Kanye West, and even Myers himself. Parents should be forewarned: THE LOVE GURU is filled with double entendres, sexual innuendo, plenty of midget jokes, and gross-out humour.Special Features:11 deleted and extended scenes3 featurettesBloopersDeleted and extended scenesFeaturettesOuttakesOuttakes and more!
Kanye West is an American hip hop recording artist, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer, and entrepreneur. Raised in Chicago, West briefly attended art school before becoming known as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing hit singles for artists such as Jay Z and Alicia Keys. Intent on pursuing a solo career as a rapper, West released his debut album The College Dropout in 2004 to widespread critical and commercial success. He went on to explore a variety of different musical styles on subsequent albums that included the baroque-inflected Late Registration (2005), the arena-inspired Graduation (2007), and the polarizing 808s & Heartbreak (2008). In 2010, he released his critically acclaimed fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and the following year he collaborated with Jay Z on the joint LP Watch the Throne (2011). West released his sixth album, Yeezus, to further critical praise in 2013. West's seventh album, The Life of Pablo, was released in 2016. West is among the most acclaimed musicians of the 21st century, and is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 32 million albums and 100 million digital downloads worldwide. He has won a total of 21 Grammy Awards, making him one of the most awarded artists of all time and the most Grammy-awarded artist of his age. Three of his albums rank on Rolling Stone's 2012 "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list. He has also been included in a number of Forbes annual lists. Time named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2005 and 2015. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregg Robinson.

After nearly three years since the release of their universally acclaimed 2011 album Ritual Union, Little Dragon return with their highly anticipated fourth album, the futuristic sounding Nabuma Rubberband, via their new label Because Music (Justice, Metronomy, Django Django, Major Lazer) on 12 May 2014. The Gothenburg electro-R&B adventurers were the latest artists to be invited to curate a 'Dazed Visionaries' takeover on Dazed Digital this week, highlighting the work of artists who have inspired their creative life, culminating with the video for 'Klapp Klapp' premiered today. 'Klapp Klapp' is the first in a two-part collaboration with the creative director Nabil (Frank Ocean, James Blake, Kanye West). Part one is directed by Taylor Cohen and features an enigmatic young zombie girl in a post-apocalyptic landscape at the start of her life / death. Watch the striking piece of film here: (insert link). Part two will follow later this year and is directed by Nabil. Musically inspired by the more experimental pockets of Prince's back catalogue, club culture and the vintage Janet Jackson slow jams Yukimi used to listen to wandering around Gothenburg during the unrelenting winter, Nabuma Rubberband has a different feel to previous Little Dragon albums TRACKS: A1.

Mit seinen gerade mal 24 Jahren kann der Keyboarder Kris Bowers noch keine allzu üppige Diskographie vorweisen. Aber was ihm an Quantität abgeht, macht er durch Qualität wett. Denn unter den wenigen Alben, an denen er schon mitwirkte, befinden sich so exzellente wie Marcus Millers "Renaissance", "Watch The Throne" von Jay-Z & Kanye West und "Cover Art" vom NEXT Collective. Nun legt Bowers, der 2011 den Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition gewann, sein ambitioniertes Debütalbum vor. "Heroes + Misfits" macht deutlich, weshalb Bowers in der Szene - Seite an Seite mit Robert Glasper, Christian Scott und Gerald Clayton - als eines der meistversprechenden Jazztalente gehandelt wird. Das Album präsentiert ihn als Leader eines mit Youngstern besetzten Sextetts, zu dem sich noch die Gastvokalisten Julia Easterlin, José James und Chris Turner gesellen. Bowers offenbart einen musikalischen und kompositorischen Stil, der, obwohl er klar in der Jazztradition verwurzelt ist, auch das gegenwärtige eklektische Zeitalter reflektiert.

Die GerÃ&#338;chtekÃ&#338;che brodelte schon seit einigen Monaten, jetzt ist die Sensation perfekt: Die beiden momentan einflussreichsten und zweifellos talentiertesten HipHop-KÃ&#338;nstler, Performer und Produzenten haben sich zusammengetan, um die Welt mit ihrem spektakulÃEURren Projekt THE THRONE zu begeistern. KANYE WEST und JAY-Z haben in den vergangenen Jahren die Musikwelt mit ihren HipHop-Sounds und VerÃ¶ffentlichungen eindrucksvoll geprÃEURgt âEUR' und machen sich auf, dies mit dem gemeinsamen Album WATCH THE THRONE erneut zu tun. Das Werk erscheint am 08. August digital und zunÃEURchst exklusiv bei iTunes, bevor WATCH THE THRONE am 12. August in die LÃEURden kommt. Wenn in der Musikwelt von einem Gipfeltreffen die Rede ist, darf sich das Publikum auf eine ganz besondere Zusammenarbeit freuen. Auf WATCH THE THRONE von THE THRONE, das neue Ã ber-Projekt vom 14-fachen Grammy-Gewinner Kanye West und HipHop-Legende Jay-Z, kÃ¶nnte die Beschreibung kaum besser passen. Diese zwei Schwergewichte ziehen nun am selben Strang: Gemeinsam besteigen sie den Thron, verneigen sich vor Soul-Ikonen (Otis) und legen mit dem in England, Australien, Paris, New York, Abu Dhabi und L.A. aufgenommenen WATCH THE THRONE das ultimative Rap-Album des Jahres vor. UnterstÃ&#338;tzt wurden Kanye West und Jay-Z von BeyoncÃ© und Frank Ocean (Nostalgia, Ultra), aber auch RZA, The Neptunes und Mike Dean. Das gesamte Album-Artwork wurde von Ricardo Tisci entworfen, dem Chef-Designer vom franzÃ¶sischen Modelabel Givenchy.
