SSM video

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has posted a video tracking pop culture's journey towards same-sex marriage.

The ACLU filed the first freedom-to-marry lawsuit in the United States in 1970. 45 years later they are at the Supreme Court to fight to win the freedom to marry for couples in all 50 states.

Backed by Tegan & Sara's "Closer," the video, which may bring a tear to the eye, includes clips from Thirtysomething, Longtime Companion, The Kids Are All Right, Roseanne, Glee, ER, Orange is the New Black, Will and Grace, In & Out, Transparent, The Wire, The Golden Girls, The Real World, Northern Exposure, Friends, The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation, Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, and The Birdcage.

WATCH: Ian McKellen Is ‘Mr. Holmes’ In Official Trailer For New Sherlock Holmes Film

 Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 12.12.30 PM

Ian McKellen stars in the new film Mr. Holmes, an adaptation of Mitch Cullin’s novel A Slight Trick of the Mind, as the legendary detective himself, Sherlock Holmes.

However, this new iteration of the famous sleuth is quite different than Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent robust take on the character. Ian McKellen plays a retired, elderly Holmes facing the trials and tribulations of old age as the brilliant detective’s mind begins to deteriorate, but the intuitive detective proves he still has some wit left at the age of 93.

Watch the intriguing, full-length trailer for McKellen's take on the famous character, AFTER THE JUMP...

Batman: Dawn of Justice featuring late actor Christopher Reeve, in his iconic role as Superman, and Adam West’s iconic role as Batman hit the web not long after the new teaser dropped.

Sony’s infamous e-mail leak continues to be the pop cultural gift that keeps on giving. A series of e-mails between executives from Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures reveal that Lady Gaga was once in late stage talks to voice Betty Boop in Simon Cowell’s upcoming reimagining of the iconic character. As recently as last fall Gaga’s name was attached the project to both star and contribute music to the movie’s soundtrack. Over the course of a series of e-mails Lauren Abrahams, VP of production for Columbia, and one-time Sony co-chairwoman Amy Pascal express concern over Gaga’s involvement in the film.

Boop"It feels weirdly sexualized yet childlike (esp with Gaga) and not sure really who it’s for in a big mainstream way,” Abrahams wrote."Neither of us thinks we should do it, and we’ve also run the brand by marketing who aren’t inclined either."

Doug Belgrad, president of the Motion Picture Group, was also included on the e-mail chain and expressed a similar lack of faith in the project’s viability at the time insisting that he wasn’t all to bullish on the idea. The correspondence between Belgrad, Pascal, and Abrahams took place last fall. Since then Sony’s rumored to have backed away fully from producing the Betty Boop reboot and Gaga is no longer attached to the project.
