Review: "Cheech And Chong's Next Movie" (1980); Shout! Factory Blu-ray Special Edition

18 hours ago | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie, which opened on Friday, July 18, 1980, had stiff competition at the box office: Airplane!, The Empire Strikes Back, The Shining, Friday the 13th, The Blue Lagoon, The Big Red One, Dressed to Kill, Fame, and The Blues Brothers were all in major release at the time. While Next Movie and did respectable business, it went on to gross even more moola when Universal released is on a double bill with John Landis’s beloved Blues Brothers later. The film picks up sometime after Cheech and Chong’s maiden cinematic outing, Up in Smoke, left off two years earlier. Written by the slapdash and seemingly always high dynamic duo and directed by the latter of the two, Next Movie plays out like their comedy album routines (“Dave” from their self-titled 1971 debut album is one of their best-known and funniest bits) which is exactly »

Ed Sheeran Helps Drive Record Glastonbury Viewing Figures

27 June 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Over 150,000 people were at this year’s Glastonbury while the number of stay-at-home festival fans watching on TV and online hit record numbers, reaching almost 21 million.

U.K. public broadcaster the BBC has exclusive rights to the event and covered the event in depth, following the action across all fields and stages, including film star Johnny Depp’s comments about Donald Trump, and, controversially, U.K. opposition party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s Saturday afternoon speech.

The BBC said that 20.9 million watched Glastonbury for three minutes or more, a 12% increase on the 2016 figure. Ed Sheeran’s Sunday night closing set garnered a peak audience of 4.1 million and average 2.9 million, beating previous ratings record holder Elo from last year’s festival.

Radiohead’s Friday headline set had a peak of 1.3 million, and coverage of the Foo Fighters the following day, won 2.5 million at its peak. Former Bee Gee Barry Gibb’s Sunday “legends” slot had peak of 3.7 million. Online »

Barnaby Joyce says government will examine whether it can take further legal action after saga of dogs Pistol and Boo

Australia’s deputy prime minister, Barnaby Joyce, has said the government will examine whether Johnny Depp committed “perjury” by smuggling dogs into the country while knowing it was illegal.

The saga of Pistol and Boo, the Yorkshire terriers who infamously landed the then Hollywood couple in strife in 2015, took another twist with allegations by Depp’s former managers that he was “fully aware that he was illegally bringing his dogs to Australia”.

Newswire: Johnny Depp’s ex-managers file paperwork alleging he physically abused Amber Heard

26 June 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

The ongoing legal battle between Johnny Depp and his former managers at the unimaginatively named The Management Company has seen a lot of the Pirates Of The Caribbean star’s dirty laundry aired. Tmg filed a countersuit against Depp after he sued them for allegedly mishandling his money, thereby screwing him out of millions of dollars. The ex-managers have previously called Depp’s spending and professionalism into question, but their latest claims are a bit more personal in nature. According to People, Tmg’s moved past the “lousy spendthrift and actor” stuff and onto the “abusive turd” area of Depp’s life.

Amber Heard, Depp’s ex-wife, accused him of domestic abuse last May, when she was granted a restraining order. Depp denied that he was abusive, and Heard dropped that claim when they settled their divorce, pledging her $7 million settlement to charity. But in court documents that People »

Newswire: Bradley Cooper films A Star Is Born scenes before Kris Kristofferson’s Glastonbury set

26 June 2017 7:24 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Two generations of A Star Is Born collided at Glastonbury Friday when, according to Billboard, Bradley Cooper appeared on stage to shoot scenes before a set from Kris Kristofferson. Cooper—who is also directing the remake starring Lady Gaga—is playing a role equivalent to the one that Kristofferson took on in the 1976 version of the story. (If only James Mason and Frederic March could have been around to see this.)

Cooper appeared to jammed out pretty hard—as you can see from the photo above—but NME notes that the audience could not hear what he was playing. So patrons got a silent show before Cooper introduced Kristofferson himself, saying, per Billboard, “You guys were awesome, that was great—it’s my sheer pleasure to introduce Kris Kristofferson.” The 81-year-old’s performance eventually featured a cameo from Johnny Depp—who has already used Glastonbury as an opportunity to »

Edinburgh is Under Way + More U.K. Entertainment News

26 June 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Hello and welcome back to our roundup of news stories from theatre, film, and television. Film Glastonbury has barely begun but already the bands have been overshadowed by Johnny Depp’s mention of an assassination attempt on U.S. President Donald Trump. The actor was introducing a screening of his film “The Libertine” when he asked, “Can you bring Trump here?” After boos from the crowd, he said, “You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” Alluding to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln by the actor John Wilkes Booth in 1865, Depp acknowledged at the time that this might get him in hot water with the press, especially back home. We’ll have to see what the media fallout is but, after the reputational damage of his recent marriage breakdown, chances are that news outlets won’t give him an easy ride.

Disney CEO Bob Iger on Han Solo movie: “It’s gonna be fine”

26 June 2017 5:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With all of the crazy news surrounding the Han Solo movie these days, it’s hard to accurately gauge how this movie will turn out. With Phil Lord and Chris Miller actually being fired from the project (apparently because they believed they were making a comedy), and being abruptly replaced with Ron Howard, and even rumors that Han Solo star Alden Ehrenreich took issue with the creative direction of the film… how are fans not supposed to panic?

Well, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger, there is absolutely nothing to fear. Speaking to Screen Rant, the CEO had this to say: “First of all, we have a great cast, we have a great script and we have a great director. It’s gonna be fine. I’m very excited.”

As part of a lawsuit between Johnny Depp and his former representation at The Management Group, Depp’s managers claim that they had discovered several years ago that the actor had “violently kicked” his ex-wife, Amber Heard, and had been “extremely volatile” with her during their marriage.

How to Save the Dark Universe

Harrison Abbott on how Universal can save the Dark Universe

Whilst its international take is admittedly surpassing its domestic performance by quite some way, it is still reasonable to suggest that The Mummy hasn’t been the mega-hit that Universal were hoping for. Weighed down by astonishingly clunky exposition, countless instances of tonal whiplash and a certain high profile ego to contend with (not to mention that embarrassing PR blunder with the trailer audio), the film has been the deserving subject of bad word of mouth and a relentless onslaught of critical maulings. Suffice it to say, it has been something of a rocky journey for the first instalment in the fledgling ”Dark Universe”.

In case you need catching up to speed, this Dark Universe is essentially the latest attempt to revive all of Universal’s classic movie monsters. Many efforts have been made in the past to reboot these characters, »

The filing emerged as part of a bitter court battle between Depp and his former managers. Depp claims Tmg defrauded him out of millions of his earnings; Tmg claims »

The Mummy Failed Due to Universal’s Bad Strategy

24 June 2017 6:49 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Universal Studios is hoping that their new “Dark Universe” will be the next McU. So far, they’re off to a weak start. The Tom Cruise action flick The Mummy, which is the official beginning to the “Dark Universe”, is seriously underperforming at the box office. The movie’s poor performance highlights a major miscalculation that will continue to derail the “Dark Universe” unless Universal changes its strategy.

We all know that every studio is trying to copy the success Disney has achieved with its massively profitable McU. Warner Brothers is doing their Dceu; Sony has plans for an expanded “Spider-Verse”, as well as a possible connected film series about Robin Hood and his Merry Men; And Universal is doing their “Dark Universe”. However, as we’re seeing in the last few years, it’s not as easy to create an extended universe as it may seem.
