‘Animaniacs’: The 12 Characters Who Need to Return to the Revival, Ranked

31 May 2017 12:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Animaniacs” may be coming back, but it’s been nearly 20 years since it’s been on the air – so some changes and updates will have to be made. The cartoon included vignettes featuring a range of characters, some more popular or successful than others, and it’s unclear who might return.

The Goodfeathers? That reference is so dated! The Nurse? So sexist! Mindy and Buttons? She’s so annoying! Ditto for Katie Kaboom.

The “Animaniacs” reboot won’t happen right away. Although Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation are eyeing a remake with Steven Spielberg’s involvement, it’s still in the early stages of development, and animation takes time to produce.

It doesn’t hurt to speculate who might be back, however. Now that the original series is streaming on Netflix, it’s easy »

Lead Role Cast for Stephen King & J.J. Abrams’ Castle Rock Series

11 May 2017 10:24 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in February, Hulu gave Stephen King fans quite a surprise when they released a teaser video for Castle Rock, a new series set in the world of Stephen King's fictional universe that has spanned many novels and short stories. While much of the series' specific details remain shrouded in mystery, the first casting news for the upcoming show has now been announced.

Variety reports that André Holland (recently seen as Matt Miller in American Horror Story: Roanoke and Kevin in the Oscar-winner Moonlight) has been cast in the lead role for Castle Rock. Holland will play "Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in the town," the town presumably being Castle Rock, Maine.

Production on the 10-episode first season of Castle Rock is expected to start this year, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, »

The Furniture: My Gal Sal's Nonsense Gay Nineties

1 May 2017 8:24 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture" is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail. Here's Daniel Walber...

My Gal Sal is a pack of lies. The 1942 musical, ostensibly a biopic of songwriter Paul Dresser, is almost entirely fabricated. Of course, that hardly matters. Accuracy is no prerequisite for the Best Production Design Oscar, which Richard Day, Joseph C. Wright and Thomas Little won for the picture. No one will be mad if some details are fudged in musical numbers like “Me and My Fella and a Big Umbrella.”

That said, My Gal Sal is interesting because it’s all nonsense. It’s a window into the way Hollywood projects itself onto the past, a compendium of historical kitsch.

Dresser (Victor Mature) begins the film in a strict, Indiana home. His minister father objects to his music, so he runs away and gets a job with a medicine show. »

Scott Reviews Charles Vidor’s Cover Girl [Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Review]

30 April 2017 12:53 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

How did a film like Cover Girl slip away? When it was shown at the TCM Classic Film Festival in 2012, it was considered something of a discovery, with Robert Osborne frequently singling it out in pre-festival interviews and publicity as a must-see, which makes me feel a little better about having not heard of it at all before seeing it a few months prior at the New Beverly. But the film was immensely popular in its day. Its success instantly pulled Gene Kelly out of limbo at MGM, where he’d been assigned to a series of B-movies and rarely allowed to dance his own choreography, when he was even allowed to dance at all.

Columbia Pictures was not interested in placing such limitations on him. The film’s producer, composer Arthur Schwartz, must have known how lucky they were, because they gave Kelly immense control over its production, especially his dance numbers. »

You’ll Never Get Rich

29 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

“Am I decent?” They said that Ginger Rogers gave Fred Astaire sex appeal, but the teaming of Astaire and Rita Hayworth is something else. Columbia’s 1941 release is a weak service comedy until the dancing starts, at which point it becomes one of the better musicals of the year – and the breakout vehicle for Ms. Hayworth.

The 25 most iconic movie entrances

Robert Keeling Apr 25, 2017

Saluting the movie characters who make an impression, the minute they appear on the screen...

One thing that unites all of cinema’s most iconic characters is that they were able to make a memorable first impression. Whether it’s bursting onto the scene in a flurry of noise or slowly skulking their way into shot, there’s a fine art to ensuring a character makes an instant impact on screen. An iconic entrance is not just about a momentary impact however, it can also emphasise a character’s importance and help to cement their influence over the rest of the movie.

There are any number of contributory factors that can be blended together in order to make an entrance truly memorable. These include the accompanying music, the choice of camera shot, the »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Holy Horrors, Jj Abrams and Stephen King fans rejoice – streaming service Hulu has officially put in a 10 episode order for Jj Abrams and Stephen King’s horror/drama Castle Rock series, giving the all-clear for production on the series to start this year.

The not-so-secret Castle Rock is the offspring of a partnership between Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros TV, who released a teaser last Friday which has gained over a staggering 1 million views since appearing. The series has been developed by Manhattan creator Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason for television and is based on characters and situations created by Stephen King. Shaw and Thomason also serve as writers on the show as well as executive producers alongside Abrams, Ben Stephenson and Liz Glotzer.

A vague plot of King’s Castle Rock has been revealed as a psychological horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse. Castle Rock »

Official Details & 10-Episode Order for Stephen King & J.J. Abrams’ Castle Rock Series

21 February 2017 10:54 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following Friday night's big announcement that Stephen King and J.J. Abrams have teamed up for a Castle Rock series, it's now been announced that the series has been given a ten-episode order that will start production later this year, and official details on what to expect from the show have also been unveiled.

According to THR, the Castle Rock series has the following official description:

"A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, It and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either »

David Reviews Michael Curtiz’s Mildred Pierce [Criterion Collection Blu-Ray Review]

21 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

With the new release of Mildred Pierce, the Criterion Collection appears to be solidifying a trend over the past couple years of providing a showcase for some of the greatest female actors from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Since late 2014, stars like Claudette Colbert (It Happened One NightThe Palm Beach Story), Rita Hayworth (Gilda, Only Angels Have Wings) and Rosalind Russell (His Girl Friday) have made their first appearances in the Collection, in what can be considered career-defining roles. These additions seem to be addressing a notable blind spot for Criterion. As impressive as their reach has been in bringing many of the most iconic women from the past hundred years of world cinema to the forefront, the continuing absence of silver screen legends like Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Greta Garbo and Elizabeth Taylor, just to name a few, seems like a lingering oversight, a problem yet to be »

Scenic Routes: It’s love at (obscured) first sight in one of the great movie entrances

3 February 2017 9:50 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In Scenic Routes, Mike D’Angelo looks at key scenes, explaining how they work and what they mean.

In the real world, making an entrance is something that you have limited control over. The people you’re hoping to wow may not be where you expected them to be; even worse, they may not see what you wanted them to see. In a movie, however, a director can painstakingly craft our initial view of a character, creating the precise impression that he or she desires. Often, this involves strategically hiding the actor at first, the better to whet our appetites. One option is simple, sustained absence—let others talk the character up for a while, then engineer an abrupt, striking introduction. (Rita Hayworth hair-tossing her way into the frame in Gilda qualifies; so does the moment in The Third Man when a beam of light cast from a window across »

Isabelle Huppert May Receive First-Ever Oscar Nomination — Other Greats Who Also Have Zero

The best actress Oscar race might seem like a showdown between La La Land’s Emma Stone and Jackie’s Natalie Portman, but Elle’s Isabelle Huppert is proving to be quite the upset. Should Huppert actually snag an Oscar nomination this year, shockingly it would be a first for the French thespian. If Huppert has flown under the Academy’s radar, who else out there is considered the best of the best and hasn’t had a chance to win Hollywood’s biggest award?

Our latest indication of Huppert’s surprise domination this awards season was at the Golden Globes when the 63-year-old won for best actress in a drama and bested Portman — Stone was nominated for best actress in a musical or comedy. Further catapulting Huppert in the best actress Oscar standings was Elle being named best foreign-language film, »

As a teenager, many of my first and strongest movie impressions came not from the movies, but from certain critics. I memorized Robin Wood’s analysis before getting a look at Hitchcock’s Psycho. Raymond Durgnat introduced me to Georges Franju and Luis Buñuel, and I first learned to appreciate a number of great movies including The Barefoot Contessa from Richard Corliss, a terrific critic who championed writers over director-auteurs.

The Barefoot Contessa is a classically structured story, in that it could work as a novel; it’s told from several points of view. »
