Elvis, The Movie Showing at Super-8 Marlon Brando Movie Madness November 4th in St. Louis

10 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

There have been many TV bios of Elvis Presley but Elvis, The Movie, the once-elusive 1979 feature starring Kurt Russell, was the first and is still the best. An 18-minute condensed version of Elvis The Movie on Super-8 sound film will be screened at Super-8 Marlon Brando Movie Madness on November 4th at The Way Out Club – (yes, we’re aware that Elvis, The Movie has nothing to do with Marlon Brando, but it’s the variety that makes it the madness!)

When Elvis died August 16 1978 at age 42, it sent shock waves around the world, comparable to the deaths of Princess Diana or Michael Jackson in later decades. A carnival atmosphere developed in Memphis as thousands of mourners gathered around the gates of Graceland and sales of Elvis’ music skyrocketed.  The 3-hour epic Elvis The Movie, produced by Dick Clark for the ABC network premiered 18 months later on February 11 1979 and, despite »

10 More Terrible Extras Who Completely Ruined Their Scenes [Video]

15 October 2014 5:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s a very unfortunate reality that most filmmakers can’t stretch their budgets to fill their scenes with convincing professional actors. This means that the majority of films feature everyday folk (and a few seasoned individuals!), like me and you filling out the background as extras, the job is usually just that, fill out the background, be inconspicuous, act ‘normal’. But sticking a camera in front of a non/semi-professional, telling them to act natural and to not draw any attention to themselves obviously goes wrong on a regular basis. For people with no experience, it’s often a confidence thing, but sometimes it comes from thinking too much about the direction given – ‘He said chew, can they see me chewing? He wanted me to laugh! Why can’t I laugh? Is my face doing that thing again!?!?’

Although the majority of mistakes made by extras will never see the light of day, »

Chuck Berry. Buddy Holly. Fats Domino. Elvis Presley. The Beatles. Green Day? Yep, Green Day — that band from your childhood bedroom — might join those artists in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as they were one of the artists nominated for induction this year.

Miles Teller has revealed that he wants to play Elvis Presley.

The Divergent actor said that his "goal" is to play the singer in his younger years, as he feels nobody has ever "gotten that right".

Speaking to W magazine, he said: "My main dream is to play Elvis. That's my goal. I think he and I look alike and do a lot of similar things well: sing, dance, and I think he played sports.

"I want to play Young Elvis," Teller added. "They've never gotten that right. It's easy to do wrecked, bloated, and drug-addicted. I want to play characters who have the fever and win. It's harder."
