Preview of Sequel Art Show - Movie Sequels That Were Never Made

7 November 2014 4:57 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Blade Runner 2054 by Cory Schmitz

Hellboy 3 by Orlando Arocena

Next week, Iam8bit in Los Angeles will open an art show called Sequel, which features art for fictional movie sequels. I may have to attend the exhibit to explore art for sequels that I hope will one day be released, and sequels I pray never get made. A sampling of the art that will be featured at the show has been released, and there are some really well crafted pieces here that may have you saying, “Well, I guess a sequel to that wouldn’t be thaaat bad.” In fact, some of these concepts would actually be fantastic! While only Hellboy 3 and Blade Runner 2 are pretty much the only ones here with any sort of legs, I'd totally be interested in seeing a Labyrinth 2 or Rocketeer 2, a.k.a. the only films where Jennifer Connelly probably wouldn't have to play Russell Crowe’s wife. »

View Photo Gallery

If it’s Friday, then you know Big Morning Buzz Live has your fix of celebrity fashion fails. Join host Nick Lachey, co-host Michelle Buteau, and style expert Jackie Miranne to see who fell hard in the style game this past week.

Kim Kardashian, who’s been upping her fashion cred since she’s been with Kanye West, failed with a dress that wasn’t tailored properly for her famous curves. Singer Florence Welch’s outfit went too heavy on the foliage theme, and Jennifer Connelly should’ve laid off the leather.

In our gallery above, check out all this week’s fails and catch a few that didn’t wind up on the show. And in the clip below, see which stars actually did their red carpets justice by nailing their looks.

The Men Who Would Be Hughes (Plus Hepburn and the end of Rko)

Howard Hughes movies (photo: Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes in 'The Aviator') Turner Classic Movies will be showing the Howard Hughes-produced, John Farrow-directed, Baja California-set gangster drama His Kind of Woman, starring Robert Mitchum, Hughes discovery Jane Russell, and Vincent Price, at 3 a.m. Pt / 6 a.m. Et on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Hughes produced a couple of dozen movies. (More on that below.) But what about "Howard Hughes movies"? Or rather, movies — whether big-screen or made-for-television efforts — featuring the visionary, eccentric, hypochondriac, compulsive-obsessive, all-American billionaire as a character? Besides Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays a dashing if somewhat unbalanced Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 Best Picture Academy Award-nominated The Aviator, other actors who have played Howard Hughes on film include the following: Tommy Lee Jones in William A. Graham's television movie The Amazing Howard Hughes (1977), with Lee Purcell as silent film star Billie Dove, Tovah Feldshuh as Katharine Hepburn, »

Zombeavers & Other Great Movie Animals

20 October 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Today sees the release of Zombeavers, in which a group of spring breakers are terrorized by a horde of killer beavers. It’s sounds ridiculous (because it is, of course) but these bloodthirsty little buggers continue a long tradition of awesome animals on the big screen. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s a countdown of some of cinema’s greatest ever beasts.

10. Flying Monkeys – The Wizard Of Oz (1939)

What’s more terrifying than an evil pointy-nosed witch? Try an evil pointy-nosed witch with an army of flying monkeys! In the original Oz books, the winged simians were mischievous but intelligent creatures, but by the time they received their big screen debut they’d mutated into the stuff of nightmares.

As Dorothy and her gang find themselves in a darkened forest, the Wicked Witch of the West sends her sinister army to monkey-nap them, and they are returned to the Witch’s castle pronto. »

The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Movies: 30-21

17 October 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30. No Country for Old Men (2007)

Scene: Coin Flip

Video: http://youtu.be/0iAezyDzj0M

There was a brief period of time from 2006-2009 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made some more daring, but wholly deserved choices for Best Picture. It began in 2006, when Martin Scorsese finally won for The Departed which, while not his best and not nearly as dark as, say, Taxi Driver or Raging Bull, still leaned that direction. Three years later, they handed the Oscar to The Hurt Locker over the blockbuster Avatar, rewarding quality over audience love. But in between the two it was given to No Country for Old Men, an incredibly dark neo-Western based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. It’s still one of the Coen Brothers’ best films, an incredible cat-and-mouse journey through West Texas in the 1980′s. The film stars Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, »

New on Video: ‘Once Upon a Time in America’

14 October 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Once Upon a Time in America

Directed by Sergio Leone

Written by Leonardo Benvenuti, Piero De Bernardi, Enrico Medioli, Franco Arcalli, Franco Ferrini, Sergio Leone

Italy/USA, 1984

Widely and justly heralded for his trendsetting Spaghetti Westerns, Sergio Leone’s final and arguably most ambitious work was in another staple American genre. Like these Westerns though, this film was as much of its respective variety as it was about it. Once Upon a Time in America, with its name obviously derived from Leone’s previous Once Upon a Time in the West, is a gangster film of the highest order, and, at the same time, it recalls so many of its predecessors, from the Warner Brothers classics of the 1930s to The Godfather. This was by design. As Leone himself notes, “My film was to be an homage to the American films I love, and to America itself.”

The Jim Henson Company developing Labyrinth 2

12 October 2014 10:41 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dark Crystal 2 and Labyrinth 2 are both in the works at The Jim Henson Company, it's been revealed...

Update:

Just a quick update on Labyrinth 2. EW has now reported that "there are currently no plans to reboot, revive, or make a sequel to Labyrinth. It’s one of those legacy titles that is floated at most meetings, but, sadly, nothing is actually in development at the moment".

Here's our original story...

Hidden at the bottom of a new story over at Variety about the assorted projects that The Jim Henson Company is working on is one we weren't expecting at all: a sequel to Labyrinth.

The 1986 classic, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly, is a film we looked back at in more detail right here. We're huge Labyrinth fans, and not just because of the soundtrack, and Bowie's enviable ability to fit into very tight trousers. No, it's a film bursting »

"Labyrinth" Sequel Not In Development

10 October 2014 6:26 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A source for Entertainment Weekly says that both a sequel to "The Dark Crystal" and a "Fraggle Rock" movie are currently being worked on. However, there are no plans to "reboot, revive, or make a sequel" to the fantasy classic "Labyrinth".

The rumor of the David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly-led film scoring a follow-up surfaced in a report over at Variety about Billy Crystal joining the cast of "Which Witch".

Both the 'Fraggle' film and 'Crystal' follow-up have been in development for sometime, and no further details have been revealed regarding either movie. The source for the denial says that the idea of a "Labyrinth" sequel is often "one of those legacy titles that is floated at most meetings, but, sadly, nothing is actually in development at the moment."

The Jim Henson Company had no official comment on the matter. »

Update: The Jim Henson Company working on a Labyrinth sequel

10 October 2014 3:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tucked away in a Variety article discussing Billy Crystal’s casting in Which Witch? is the news that The Jim Henson Company is working on a sequel to the 1986 classic Labyrinth starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly.

No further details on the Labyrinth sequel are available at this point, although the article does go on to state that the company are also working on feature adaptations on Emmett Otter and Fraggle Rock, along with a sequel to 1982’s The Dark Crystal.

Update: According to Entertainment Weekly’s sources, Variety is mistaken and “there are currently no plans to reboot, revive, or make a sequel to Labyrinth.”

'Labyrinth' Sequel a Possibility at the Jim Henson Company?

10 October 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Buried within a Variety story about Billy Crystal joining Which Witch is news that The Jim Henson Company is developing sequels to Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, along with Fraggle Rock: The Movie and another feature film based on the Emmett Otter character. However, a new story from Entertainment Weekly released shortly after that first news claims that the Labyrinth sequel is not actually in active development.

A source for The Jim Henson Company says that The Dark Crystal sequel and the Fraggle Rock: The Movie are currently being worked on, but there are no plans to, "reboot, revive, or make a sequel" to Labyrinth any time soon. The source described the "legacy title" as something that surfaces during most meetings, but nothing is currently in the works, despite Variety's contrasting report.

Fraggle Rock: The Movie has been in development for quite some time, with The Jim Henson Company partnering with New Regency. »

Watch: Vintage 16-Minute Interview With Dario Argento, Director Launches Indiegogo For Film With Iggy Pop

10 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Dario Argento, whose Italian horror films are the stuff of lore (“Suspiria,” “Tenebre” and the Jennifer Connelly-led “Phenomena”) is back at it, and this time, it’s a doozy. “The Sandman,” written by David Tully and not to be confused with Neil Gaiman’s exquisite comic series, is a modern serial killer thriller starring none other than Iggy Pop. Yes, Iggy Pop. If the pairing of Pop and Argento is just about the most outlandish thing you can think of, and you want in on the action, then there’s more good news in store. Variety reports that the duo are teaming up to fundraise for the film, turning to Indiegogo in the hope of raising a quarter of a million dollars. Fans who give enough can get a personal message from either or both icons, set tours or even a cameo in the movie. Though he had his »

Labyrinth, Dark Crystal sequels being developed by Jim Henson Company?

10 October 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sequels for The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth are reportedly in the works.

A newly-published report from Variety indicates that the Jim Henson Company is working on follow-ups to both cult hits, among other 'legacy titles'.

David Bowie's Labyrinth to get comic prequel

No other details about the projects have been released at this time.

The Dark Crystal debuted more mature creatures from the Jim Henson's Creature Shop in its story of an elf-like being on a journey to save his planet.

Jim Henson directed 1982's The Dark Crystal with long-time collaborator Frank Oz, with both also providing voices for several characters.

A potential sequel for The Dark Crystal was first developed by Henson during the original movie's production, but never came to pass.

Labyrinth followed four years later, and starred David Bowie as the mulleted Goblin King known as Jareth.

Jennifer Connelly also had an early starring role »
