Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Never Say Die: 21 highlights from Josh Brolin's terrific,'Goonies'-heavy Reddit Ama

21 August 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though he was ostensibly promoting his role in the upcoming Robert Rodriguez sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Josh Brolin's Reddit Ama on Thursday was delightfully all over the map, with topics ranging from "The Goonies" ("I've never had more fun on a movie") to his disastrous "Thrashin'" audition ("an 18 wheeler ran over it") to the insanity of working with Paul Thomas Anderson ("It felt like swimming in a Ralph Steadman drawing") to that horrible moment on the set of "American Gangster" with Russell Crowe ("I went back to my trailer waiting to be fired"). But mostly he talked about "The Goonies," and god love him for it. Check out the 21 best moments from the spirited, candid and wildly entertaining Q&A below. 1. His favorite superheroes are the Hulk, Thor and...Richie Rich? @Judomonkeykyle asks: Hi Josh, are you a comic book fan? Who is your favorite superhero/supervillan? »

‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Star Josh Brolin On Why You Should “Never Write Anybody Off”

20 August 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Josh Brolin‘s performance in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn’t wildly dissimilar to his work in Men in Black III. They’re very different films and performances, of course, but both prequels feature Brolin inheriting a role from another actor. Brolin eerily embodied Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K, while in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For he’s channeling Clive Owen’s work as Dwight McCarthy from the first movie. This is Dwight before he had to change his face, which, in case you haven’t read Frank Miller‘s comics, is why Owen isn’t back playing the character. Whether Josh Brolin studied Clive Owen’s performance never came up in our wide-ranging conversation with the actor, who’s clearly pleased with both the film and his performance. With the exception of Labor Day – a film I’ll readily go to bat for — it’s the first time since True Grit »

Badass Grandpas: ‘The Expendables 3′ and 12 More Seasoned Stars

15 August 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Bette Davis coined the phrase “Old age is no place for sissies,” she may as well have been describing the plot of “The Expendables 3.” Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, the ensemble film features a cast of mature action vets who aren’t about to trade in their bullets for bifocals just yet. As the third entry in the popular franchise explodes into theaters on August 15, here’s a look at 12 films starring some of the toughest seniors in cinema.

Non-Stop

Continuing his late-career reinvention as a post-middle aged action hero, Liam Neeson plays a federal air marshal who receives a series of threatening texts during a transatlantic flight. Trapping the 62-year old star in a confined location proved a wise decision as the modestly-budgeted thriller opened at No. 1 in the U.S. and earned over $200 million worldwide.

10 Highest Grossing Time Travel Movies

13 August 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Making a movie that revolves around time travel instantly creates paradoxes and often plot holes, but managed intelligently, the onscreen logic can make for fun and dangerous storytelling. This is a list is of the highest grossing movies and franchises that use time travel as a main story element (an example of a movie with time travel not as a main story element is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which would have been #4 had it qualified).

I've cheated a bit by grouping franchises together, allowing me to write about more movies. Out of the 18 movies on the list I’ve seen 17, which might mean I really like movies with time travel. All numbers are worldwide box office grosses adjusted for inflation. Box office revenue numbers are from Box Office Mojo and The Numbers. Bits of trivia are from IMDb and Wikipedia. Inflation data comes via the Us Department of Labor. »

Casting Net: Mike Epps may play Richard Pryor in Lee Daniels' biopic

12 August 2014 5:29 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler). Epps was previously signed on to play Pryor back in 2005 and met with the late comedian while he was still alive to prepare for the role, but that project fell through. Epps reportedly beat out actors Michael B. Jordan, Nick Cannon, and Marlon Wayans after Wayans had also been previously attached to another Pryor film, this one »

Gal Gadot Joins Costner's Criminal

12 August 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As previously reported, Kevin Costner is continuing his recent thriller kick, following Jack Ryan and 3 Days To Kill with Ariel Vroman's high-concept Criminal. Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Oldman were already set to star; Ryan Reynolds recently joined them. Now, proving that her Wonder Woman duties in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and the eventual Justice League movie haven't yet taken over her life, Gal Gadot has also stepped aboard. She'll be playing Reynolds' wife.The film sees Costner as a ruthless criminal (hence the title) who, rather than face the rest of his life in jail, volunteers for an experimental procedure to have the memories and skills of a murdered CIA field agent transferred into his own mind... with predictably unpredictable consquences.Jones is playing a doctor - presumably with a dash of mad neuroscientist about him - while Oldman and Reynolds' roles have not yet been revealed. »
