Scream Fest Preview: Bela Lugosi Jr.

8 February 2016 5:01 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Come meet Bela Lugosi Jr. at our Silver Scream Festival as we screen four of his father’s most iconic films. He’ll be doing a Q&A, so buy your tix now and get your questions ready. As the steward of his father’s legacy, he’ll have all the answers regarding the first golden age of Hollywood horror!

The films we’ll be screening:

Dracula

The most famous of all Draculas, Lugosi Sr.’s incarnation became so ingrained in the public consciousness that it was the mold from which essentially all others were made up until the TWILIGHTs and the Vampire Diaries of the world changed things up.

Son Of Frankenstein

Teaming Lugosi with Sherlock Holmes himself, Basil Rathbone, as the titular character, and Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s monster, was box office gold for Universal. It’s your chance to check out Lugosi’s first turn as »

10 Revived TV Shows That Should Have Stayed Dead

5 February 2016 2:13 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Futurama/20th Century Fox

We all have a few TV shows that we loved, and wind up missing when they end. Some of them were cancelled too soon and some of them stretched on way too long, but regardless we form an emotional attachment to the characters and the world. Sometimes the TV gods hear our prayers and grant us a revival years later, but this can lead to an extreme case of “Careful what you wish for.”

The last few years have seen a boatload of old shows being rebooted, with everything from Twin Peaks to Ful House being hosed down for a new generation; even ReBoot is getting a reboot. The X-Files recently came back after a long hiatus and – dodgy opening episode aside – fans seem to be pleased with the results. That not always the case, though, because there have been plenty of examples of dead shows »

Make No Mistake: Jerry Bruckheimer, Tom Cruise Want You to Know That This Whole Top Gun 2 Thing Is Getting Very Serious

27 January 2016 11:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In case you weren't buying into the Top Gun 2 hype, Jerry Bruckheimer wants you to know he just met with Tom Cruise in New Orleans to talk about it. Deadline reports that the producer's weekend visit was arranged to hash out a potential plot line. An unnamed source also told the site that the long-overdue sequel is "closer now to becoming real than it’s been in 30 years." The updates come months after a series of major plugs last summer, as well as a very confusing Val Kilmer Facebook post — both of which promised progress on a follow-up fans had heard rumors about for decades. Around the same time, it had also been revealed that Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li) was writing the script, with a definite spot for Maverick and a contemporary take on dogfighting.

Top Gun 2: Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer meet up

Could there be progress on Top Gun 2? Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer have certainly been chatting about it...

A small step forward perhaps, but maybe a notable one in the ongoing development of Top Gun 2. The last we heard on the project was when Val Kilmer posted he'd agreed to a role in the movie. That said, there's been little sign of the movie getting in front of cameras anytime soon.

Tom Cruise, for one, is now committed to finishing Jack Reacher 2, shooting Mission: Impossible 6 and then making The Mummy reboot. But it still sounds as though Top Gun 2 is an active project.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who of late has been working on Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, has given the latest update. And it's a simple one, confirming that he and Cruise have met up to discuss the Top Gun sequel. »

Development of “Top Gun 2” was confirmed last year by Skydance CEO David Ellison, who also shared some details about the plot.

'Top Gun 2' Is Closer to Happening with Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer

27 January 2016 11:10 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With every new year comes a new set of anniversaries for fans to celebrate, and this year marks the 30th Anniversary of the movie that made Tom Cruise a global superstar, Top Gun. The blockbuster took in $176 million, making it the highest-grossing movie at the box office in 1986, which, when you adjust for inflation, equates to a $414.5 million today. Over the past 30 years, development on the sequel Top Gun 2 has had more than its fair share of ups and downs. Now it seems the project may be on the right track, thanks to a new tweet from producer Jerry Bruckheimer which confirms Tom Cruise will be back to star.

The last we heard about Top Gun 2 was back in November, when original Top Gun star Val Kilmer revealed through social media that he was offered a role in the sequel, although the actor later clarified that he "jumped »

Jerry Bruckheimer and Tom Cruise still teasing 'Top Gun 2,' now with photos

27 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ah, "Top Gun 2," the movie that may or may not happen for years and years now. We're definitely more in the "may happen" category these days, as producer Jerry Bruckheimer posted a photo with the first film's star. You may know him. Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans to see my old friend @TomCruise and discuss a little Top Gun 2. pic.twitter.com/vA2xK7S7JS — Jerry Bruckheimer (@Bruckheimerjb) January 26, 2016 Yes, apparently Bruckheimer and Maverick met up over the weekend to talk about a possible sequel! And Tom Cruise (or, more likely, whoever runs his social media accounts) retweeted Bruckheimer's photo, so you know it's legit. Bruckheimer has spoken about the sequel over the years, most recently saying it would be about drones making pilots obsolete, and Maverick attempting to prove that they aren't. That sounds all well and good, but the "Top Gun 2 »

10 Awesome Singing Performances By Actors in Movies

25 January 2016 5:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The other day someone mentioned Val Kilmer’s performance in The Doors as the complete opposite of a terrible singing performance in movies. It was suggested that I do an article on great singing performances by non-singing actors in movies. With a little digging and a little bit of laughter, I think I came up with 10 that are definitely worthy of a mention. Bare in mind that I only added actors who are clearly not singers commercially.  So no Jamie Foxx (since he has an album) and obviously no Jennifer Lopez, Will Smith, etc etc. If I’ve missed any, obviously

Awesome Song From The Movie Real Genius: “Number One” By Chaz Jankel

20 January 2016 1:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ve been trying to find the name of this song for a while.. As I was watching “Real Genius” for the 400th time yesterday, I realized how perfect an addition this song would make to my iPhone. And as luck would have it, the video is on Youtube. Would have been much better if I were able to find the montage from the movie that actually features this song. For all of you that might remember the video, it’s the montage where Val Kilmer and whatever the name of the other guy is, are working really really hard to make
