Nicolas Cage's 5 craziest roles: The Wicker Man, Bad Lieutenant

9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As Nicolas Cage returns to Oscar-worthy form in David Gordon Green's extraordinary Southern Gothic drama Joe, we celebrate some of the strangest roles he's essayed along the way, from insect-munching Manhattanite to bee-wrangling bear impersonator. It's not always pretty, but it's never boring...

Vampire's Kiss (1988)

After he was a leading man, but before he was a very good one, Cage played that 1980s stalwart – the Yuppy Dick – in this off-kilter black comedy. Enunciating in an inexplicably anglicised drawl, like Loyd Grossman shouting through a tube, his character Peter Loew confides to his therapist: "I brought this girl up to my place, really hot, you knooooooow... Suddenly, this bat comes sweeping down out of noooowhere. I'll be daaaaamned if I didn't get really turned on!"

From here things only get stranger, with Loew exhibiting all the usual signs of vampirism: cringing at the sign of crosses/mirrors, shouting the alphabet »

Trailers From Hell Opens 'The Doors'

23 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, Allan Arkush talks Oliver Stone's 1991 biopic about 1960s prog-rock band The Doors. The film spent over 10 years in development, running through several studios and potential leading men before settling on Val Kilmer as the band’s self-aggrandizing/self-destructive lead singer, Jim Morrison. Critical reaction was mixed and the box-office weak, but all of Oliver Stone's films are passion projects and "The Doors" is no different: like Morrison himself, Stone’s movie is never dull or doctrinaire. »

Oliver Stone’s bio-pic about 60’s prog-rock band The Doors spent over ten years in development, running through several studios and potential leading men before settling on Val Kilmer as the band’s self-aggrandizing/self-destructive lead singer, Jim Morrison. Critical reaction was mixed and the box-office weak, but all of Oliver Stone’s films are passion projects and The Doors is no different: like Morrison himself, Stone’s movie is never dull or doctrinaire.

A Breaking Bad Sequel Starring Val Kilmer and Other Kickstarter Campaigns You Could Donate To ... Or Not

20 July 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Is this the summer of Kickstarter? We've seen no shortage of drives for off-the-wall causes, foremost among them that infamous Kickstarter for potato salad that has so far received more than $50,000 in pledges. But potato salad hasn't cornered the market on weird ideas. Here are five that caught our eyes. A Breaking Bad sequel starring Val Kilmer and Slash No, really. Before it was unceremoniously canceled, Anastaia would have picked up where Breaking Bad left off, with Walter White lying on the floor. Is Walter dead? As creator Lawrence Shepherd explains, Anastaia would have starred Val Kilmer and Guns N' Roses »

'Breaking Bad' spin-off starring Val Kilmer and Slash hits Kickstarter

16 July 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

With each season of Breaking Bad, the show’s fan base grew, right up until showrunner Vince Gilligan decided that Walter White’s story had come to end after five seasons. But not everyone agreed with Gilligan’s choice. And as far as industry newcomer Larry Shepherd is concerned—spoiler!—Walt’s presumed death is not the final chapter of the story. And that’s exactly why he has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his own Breaking Bad spin-off titled Anastasia.

On the Anastasia Kickstarter page, Shepherd describes his series as picking up directly after Walter White’s collapse in the Breaking Bad finale, »

Weird Al Yankovic Releases New Video "Tacky"

14 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

‘Weird’ Al Yankovic released the first music video from his newest comedy album Mandatory Fun on Monday for “Tacky,” a parody of Pharrell’s Oscar-nominated song “Happy.”

Celeb Cameos In Weird Al Yankovic's "Tacky"

“Tacky” takes on some of the more unattractive qualities popularized in pop culture – including the constant need to update social media – with lyrics like: “I would live Tweet a funeral, take selfies with the deceased”

The video, which mimics Pharrell’s, features comedians dressed in ridiculous, neon, mix-matched outfits, dancing and lip-syncing to the song. Cameos included Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black.

Stonestreet, who currently stars on Modern Family, took to Twitter to celebrate the video’s release, calling Yankovic a “national treasure.” And Schaal wrote that the video “was a lot of fun to make.”

"Word Crimes"

The “Tacky” release is the first of many, as Yankovic previously »

Sound on Sight: Top 10 Random “Sound” and “Sight” Movie Titles

14 July 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Let us play the “Name Game”, shall we? Since we all are part of the experience here at the entertainment website known as Sound on Sight maybe we should pay homage to our online destination by celebrating it in an unconventional manner? Specifically, we can recognize Sound on Sight by acknowledging movie names that contain the words “sound” and “sight” in their titles.

However you may perceive this experimentation as being rather gimmicky and silly please realize that this movie column is also a means to recognize a few movie titles that are unfamiliar or perhaps a first-time discovery to some of you out there that never heard some of these cinematic selections. There may be a couple of well-known films in the bunch but collectively the features being mentioned in Sound on Sight: Top 10 Random “Sound” and “Sight” Movie Titles are aptly presented based on the theme at hand. »

Warner Bros. Bringing Mad Max and The Hobbit to Comic-Con 2014

9 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The last couple of years Warner Bros. has put on incredibly entertaining Comic-Con panel events for their films. The studio has announced that this year they will be bringing The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Jupiter Ascending to the massive geek convention. The studio announced that the panel will take place on Saturday, July 26th.

You may have noticed that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a part of the lineup, which is crazy to me! The only thing I can think is that the studio will surprise fans with Zack Snyder, who will show us some footage. I'll be shocked if they don't show anything — this is the crowd that's going to want to see it!

Director Peter Jackson will be there to talk about the third and final installment in The Hobbit franchise. Director George Miller will also be »

Warner Bros. reveals full San Diego Comic-Con schedule

8 July 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the San Diego Comic-Con International fast approaching, Warner Bros. has revealed its full schedule for the con, which includes movies such as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla, as well as a range of TV shows including The Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, Gotham, Constantine and The Flash. Oddly, there’s no mention of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so if those rumours about a teaser trailer and a big DC Cinematic Universe announcement are true, WB must be trying its best to keep it a surprise. Check out the full press release here…

Warner Bros. Taking ‘The Hobbit,’ ‘Mad Max,’ ‘Jupiter Ascending’ to Comic-Con

8 July 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. will present the films “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Jupiter Ascending” during its studio presentation inside the San Diego Convention Center’s massive Hall H at Comic-Con later this month.

Missing from its lineup was “Batman v. Superman,” a curious omission considering director Zack Snyder announced the film at last year’s event and typically promotes his projects at the show.

Peter Jackson is set to take the stage to promote the final installment of the “The Hobbit” trilogy, while George Miller will present “Mad Max.” Warner Bros. has yet to say who will attend for “Jupiter Ascending.”

“Jupter Ascending” had originally been set to bow July 18 but was pushed to February 2015. Comic-Con will enable WB to generate more buzz for the sci-fier.

The day before the start of Comic-Con, Warner Bros. will screen tornado thriller “Into the Storm,” on »

IFC orders a follow-up to 'The Spoils of Babylon'

7 July 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

IFC announced today that it has ordered The Spoils Before Dying, a six-episode sequel to the Funny or Die-produced The Spoils of Babylon that will air next summer.

Executive producer Will Ferrell will return onscreen as Eric Jonrosh, the author/director/writer/fabulist/wine fan who opens and closes each episode. The Spoils Before Dying, which is based on the fictional writer’s first bestselling novel, chronicles the exploits of a jazz pianist-turned-private eye in the 1950s who finds himself entangled in a murder investigation that “spins out of control and leads him down paths—romantic and otherwise—he never expected. »

Will Ferrell will return to IFC with 'Spoils Before Dying'

IFC has announced that they are ordering a second season of Funny or Die's "Spoils" series.  The first season, "The Spoils of Babylon," premiered in January of this year, and the second, "The Spoils Before Dying" is set to begin airing next summer. Executive produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and more, the new season promises to have a new all-star cast, and Ferrell himself will return as fictional author Eric Jonrosh.  As the character, Ferrell will open and close each episode of "Before Dying," much as he did with "Babylon." According to IFC's press release, "The Spoils Before Dying" is based on Jonrosh's first novel and "will take viewers into the seedy underbelly of the 1950s jazz scene, in a detective story positively buzzing with erotic charge. It follows a jazz-pianist turned private eye who becomes embroiled in a murder investigation that spins out of control and leads him »
