When Jean-Claude Van Damme played Predator

20 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In 1986, Jean-Claude Van Damme was the title alien in Predator before he was hurriedly recast. Ryan looks back at what happened...

In the mid-1980s, Belgian martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme arrived in America with dreams of stardom. Possessing a finely-honed physique, thanks to years of training in (among other things) karate, kickboxing and ballet, he was ambitious and brimming with self-belief.

The acting bug bit Van Damme while he was still in his teens: he played “a bad guy with all the knives” in the 1984 French gangster movie Rue Barbare and, determined to further his goal of becoming an actor, hopped on a plane to Los Angeles. His first few years in America were, however, tough. He slept in a rental car for two weeks, and made money money by teaching aerobics and martial arts, delivering pizzas, and working as a doorman at a restaurant belonging to Chuck Norris. »

The lyrics of 'It's the Hard-Knock Life,' according to this ridiculous 'Annie' emoji video

20 October 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

So, there's an Annie movie. And if the trailers are any indication, it's probably going to be hilarious. Not "ha-ha, isn't this whimsical?" hilarious, but "Pierce Brosnan is giving his all in Mamma Mia!" hilarious. But the one thing that isn't funny is the movie's social media campaign. Annie's marketing team seems to actually understand its target demographic: tween girls and reluctant adults whose fingers are glued to their phones. The latest proof of that awareness is a goofy lyric video accompanying the first full track release of "It's the Hard-Knock Life," the show's orphan ensemble opener (calm down, »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: A serious attempt to explain movies about White Dude Problems

13 October 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

1999 will always be one of my favorite years for movies. This is partially because there were a lot of great movies released that year, but mainly because in 1999 I was in high school, and as we all know, the world was more important and less terrible when we were in high school. Last week, I took a look at which movies from 1999 had aged well, and asked which had aged poorly. The response was overwhelming, insofar as it's overwhelming that anyone likes American Beauty. However, one reader email in particular struck me as a launchpad for an important conversation. Here »

French actress L&#233a Seydoux has signed on to play a femme fatale in Bond 24, according to a new report from The Daily Mail. The actress is reportedly set to meet co-stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw for a script rehearsal in late November, with production scheduled to begin in six weeks.

Danny Masterson Joins Pierce Brosnan For Drug Thriller Urge

7 October 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a deadly designer drug at the centre of upcoming thriller, Urge, there’s a steady stream of talent coming aboard who may succumb to its effects. The latest addition to the cast is That ’70s Show star Danny Masterson.

The movie will revolve around a group of friends who jet off for an island adventure. Upon their arrival, they meet a drug designer who lures them into sampling his latest product. The twist here is that the side-effect (or the main effect, however you choose to look at it) of the pill causes people to lose their ability to control their urges. A bit like most drugs, then. Still, with Pierce Brosnan attached as the dodgy drug creator, here’s hoping we’ll get a brilliantly hammy villain who spews crazed soliloquys. Leading the group of friends into their doomed and/or enlightened druggy experience is Twilight‘s Ashley Greene. »
