Cher Is Releasing an Album of ABBA Covers!

  • SGMamma Mia Here We Go Again is out next week

The release of Mamma Mia!

The first film gleefully plundered 20 sparkling gems from the Abba songbook, including a rousing full cast rendition of Waterloo over the end credits bedecked in straining spandex and sequins.

B-roll footage from behind the scenes shows Streep embracing Seyfried, singing softly to her in a chapel-like setting. "Here We Go Again" world premiere on July 16, 2018.

"Dot dot dot! That's what they did in the olden days", explains Sophie before she begins singing "Honey, Honey", at the start of the first Mamma Mia movie. She's an inspired singer and dancer, and every time the film cuts away from her story is a bit of a disappointment - even though it's always entertaining to see what new ways the filmmakers have dreamed up to humiliate Skarsgård and Firth.

"Because she's lived a much longer life than I have", she added, jokingly referring to the fact that Cher is 72, only three years older than Streep herself.

It's pretty safe to say that this will hardly be the last time we see her in the spotlight, since she seems to live there.

Endurance man Anderson downs Isner in ultra marathon to reach final
One key area in which Anderson held the edge throughout was in unforced errors, as Isner committed 59 to just 24 for Anderson. However, on the other side of the draw, a mouth-watering semi-final has been set up between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

In the new movie, Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried) seeks to honor her now-deceased mother (Meryl Streep) by re-launching the matriarch's hotel.

Lily James will play young Donna.

In Parker's hands, the sequel is far more grounded and melodramatic, lacking some of the rambunctious pop and fizz Lloyd brought to "Mamma Mia", the cinematic equivalent of trucker speed.

The addition of Cher as Streep's impeccably coiffed mother is a masterstroke. "It was amusing, it was moving so we said go ahead and here we are". Perhaps they thought that, in the words of the song: "If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, because quite frankly it's a licence to print money".

"Finally after eight years there was a script that everyone agreed on so we said OK then, let's do it", he said.
