50 Best Comic Book Movie Adaptations

21 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

20. Story of Ricky (Lik wong) – Starring Siu-Wong Fan as the titular character, Riki Oh, based on a manga series which eventually became an anime, marks the end of an era of Japanese exploitation flicks, before the new generation of filmmakers such as Takashi Miike took over. Unlike Miike’s movies, or other recent entries such as Tokyo Gore Police, Riki Oh’s tone borders on comedy, played up by bad voice dubbing, foolish plot lines, cartoonish gore and eccentric characters (including a one-eyed assistant warden with a hook for a hand). For a prison film, the movie never seems mean-spirited, and if anything it masquerades as a bizarre superhero flick. The effects are the main draw – Riki Oh exists simply to showcase several outlandish set pieces, ramping up the level of violence, gore and action with each new scene. Made before the days of CGI, director Lam relies simply on practical effects, »

Elia Kazan’s 1960 film Wild River, which stars Montgomery Clift, Lee Remick, Joan Van Fleet, and is Bruce Dern’s debut film, celebrates its 55th anniversary this year. The Royale Laemmle Theater in Los Angeles will be holding a special one-night-only showing of the 110-minute film on Thursday, September 17th, 2015 at 7:30 pm. Actor Bruce Dern is scheduled to appear at the screening and is due to partake in a Q & A and discussion on the making of the film.

From the press release:

Wild River (1960), set in Depression-era America, tells a provocative story of the conflict between an agent from the Tennessee Valley Authority and a proud, defiant older woman who refuses to sell her land in order to make way for a much needed dam. Oscar-nominated actors Montgomery Clift and Lee Remick star, and Oscar-winning actress Jo Van Fleet (only 40 at the time she made the film) plays the stubborn, »

Scorsese (Costly) Short Featuring the Director, DiCaprio, and De Niro Has Been Pulled from Venice Festival

29 August 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name. The Venice Film Festival is surely no exception, especially as it's the year's final internationally renowned European movie fest, held shortly before the fall – i.e., awards – movie season begins. Well, one work by a top Hollywood name will no longer be available at Venice: The Audition, a short film directed by and featuring veteran Martin Scorsese, has been pulled out. "We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time," festival organizers said in a statement earlier today, Sat., Aug. 29, '15.

Legendary Bergman on TCM: From Hollywood Career-Ruining Scandal to 3 Oscars and Another Bergman

28 August 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ingrid Bergman ca. early 1940s. Ingrid Bergman movies on TCM: From the artificial 'Gaslight' to the magisterial 'Autumn Sonata' Two days ago, Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” series highlighted the film career of Greta Garbo. Today, Aug. 28, '15, TCM is focusing on another Swedish actress, three-time Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman, who would have turned 100 years old tomorrow. TCM has likely aired most of Bergman's Hollywood films, and at least some of her early Swedish work. As a result, today's only premiere is Fielder Cook's little-seen and little-remembered From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (1973), about two bored kids (Sally Prager, Johnny Doran) who run away from home and end up at New York City's Metropolitan Museum. Obviously, this is no A Night at the Museum – and that's a major plus. Bergman plays an elderly art lover who takes an interest in them; her »

26 August 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

David Spade is spilling on one of our favorite '90s tabloid tales.  In an interview for the September issue of Details magazine, the 51-year-old Just Shoot Me star revealed that, back in the late nineties, Jack Nicholson swooped in and asked out then-girlfriend Lara Flynn Boyle. "Nicholson asked Lara Flynn Boyle out in front of me while we were all smoking a doob somewhere," Spade dished to the publication. "She got mad because I didn't stick up for her. I said, 'I've been in this town long enough to know when I'm outranked. You're either gonna go out with him or you're not.'"  According to the Joe Dirt star, "she [Flynn] goes, 'No way. »

Jack Nicholson Stole David Spade’s Girlfriend While Smoking a ‘Doob’

25 August 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jack Nicholson isn’t really known for his sexual allure anymore. The guy’s one of our best living actors, of course, but when you think of Jack Nicholson, sexy is no longer the first thing you think. You think of the guy in sunglasses plopped down in the front row of a Lakers game. Unless you're David Spade — then you think of Jack Nicholson as the guy who stole your girlfriend in the late ’90s.In the September issue of Details (via GQ), David Spade, who has 12 fewer Oscar nominations than Nicholson, says, "Nicholson asked Lara Flynn Boyle out in front of me, while we were all smoking a doob somewhere." (Who says doob?) Yes, Spade was dating Boyle at the time — the world was in a weird place, with everyone still reeling from the Seinfeld finale and worried about Y2K. Boyle was purportedly angry at Spade for »

17 actors impersonating other actors: Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack Nicholson impression is crazy good

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).

1. Kevin Spacey

Actors impersonated: Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken

To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.

Ps - there are Kevin Spacey impressions, then there are Kevin Spacey impressions in front of the people he's impersonating. Ladies and gentlemen, Al Pacino and "Al Pacino".

2. Bradley Cooper

Actors impersonated: Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Christian Bale

Everyone can do a Christopher Walken - even if it's a terrible Christopher Walken »

TV’s ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Robert Vaughn on Early Influences, Natalie Wood

14 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With director Guy Ritchie’s new bigscreen take on the beloved ’60s TV spy series “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” rolling out globally, the original star of that series, Robert Vaughn, is naturally busy with interviews about his iconic turn as suave master spy Napoleon Solo. Vaughn’s also recently done a one-man stage production as blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo and appeared in TV’s “Law and Order: Svu” and upcoming indie film “The American Side.” His first time in Variety was for performing in the 1954 Los Angeles revival of Gb Shaw’s “Misalliance” for the Stage Society.

Performing Shaw on stage isn’t the obvious path to playing one of our favorite spies.

My goal was always to get better roles and in my case, performing on stage really led to great opportunities. My breakthrough came when I did Calder Willingham’s “End as a Man” on stage and was spotted by Max Arnow, »

Sex Kitten Turned Two-Time Oscar Nominee on TCM Tonight

Ann-Margret movies: From sex kitten to two-time Oscar nominee. Ann-Margret: 'Carnal Knowledge' and 'Tommy' proved that 'sex symbol' was a remarkable actress Ann-Margret, the '60s star who went from sex kitten to respected actress and two-time Oscar nominee, is Turner Classic Movies' star today, Aug. 13, '15. As part of its “Summer Under the Stars” series, TCM is showing this evening the movies that earned Ann-Margret her Academy Award nods: Mike Nichols' Carnal Knowledge (1971) and Ken Russell's Tommy (1975). Written by Jules Feiffer, and starring Jack Nicholson and Art Garfunkel, the downbeat – some have found it misogynistic; others have praised it for presenting American men as chauvinistic pigs – Carnal Knowledge is one of the precursors of “adult Hollywood moviemaking,” a rare species that, propelled by the success of disparate arthouse fare such as Vilgot Sjöman's I Am Curious (Yellow) and Costa-Gavras' Z, briefly flourished from »

Mitchum Stars in TCM Movie Premiere Set Among Japanese Gangsters Directed by Future Oscar Winner

12 August 2015 10:44 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Mitchum ca. late 1940s. Robert Mitchum movies 'The Yakuza,' 'Ryan's Daughter' on TCM Today, Aug. 12, '15, Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” series is highlighting the career of Robert Mitchum. Two of the films being shown this evening are The Yakuza and Ryan's Daughter. The former is one of the disappointingly few TCM premieres this month. (See TCM's Robert Mitchum movie schedule further below.) Despite his film noir background, Robert Mitchum was a somewhat unusual choice to star in The Yakuza (1975), a crime thriller set in the Japanese underworld. Ryan's Daughter or no, Mitchum hadn't been a box office draw in quite some time; in the mid-'70s, one would have expected a Warner Bros. release directed by Sydney Pollack – who had recently handled the likes of Jane Fonda, Barbra Streisand, and Robert Redford – to star someone like Jack Nicholson or Al Pacino or Dustin Hoffman. »

Zach Galifianakis Is The Joker In 'Lego Batman'

12 August 2015 1:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, Mark Hamill... Zach Galifianakis? Well, the actor is certainly making the lineage of those who have taken on an iconic Batman villain pretty interesting. THR reports that Galifianakis has joined "Lego Batman" as The Joker. That's right, if the live-action DC universe wasn't big enough for you, there's an animated one too. He joins Will Arnett, who is reprising his role from "The Lego Movie," and Michael Cera (as Robin) in the superhero tale penned by Seth Grahame-Smith ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter") with Chris McKay ("Robot Chicken") directing. This one is still a long way off — February 10, 2017 — but so far, looks like its keeping the same irreverent tone as its predecessor. »

Kevin Bacon Uses Google's 'Bacon Number' to Remember Past Co-Stars

When you've appeared in enough films and TV shows to spawn a pop-culture trivia game, the scattered faces of your previous co-stars start to blur. So it's only fitting that Kevin Bacon needs a little help jogging his clogged memory, as he explained during Monday's Late Late Show. "If I'm about to go to work with someone, I'll check their name on the call sheet, and then I'll go to Google, and you can put in their name plus 'bacon number,' and that will tell you how many degrees of separation there are. »
