It's pretty touching to see the stars, who also both worked on 2005's War of the Worlds, together again after so long. Take a trip down memory lane with the reunion pictures, and maybe rewatch the classic this weekend! »

Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.

Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)

Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.

Post-Shawshank he starred in films ranging from Mission to Mars, to High Fidelity and Green Lantern. His biggest career success »

How The Shawshank Redemption Would Have Ended Without Studio Notes

19 November 2014 8:56 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Usually the phrase "studio notes" is one that makes cinephiles sneer. As they set out to make movies that appeal to the masses, studios are regularly regarded as some necessary evil that brings us great spectacle, but willfully dumbs down an auteur's vision. This might be a perception we get because stories about bad studio notes catch on way more often than those about good ones do. Regardless, it turns out studio notes made a major and positive difference on the ending of the much beloved Shawshank Redemption. In commemoration of The Shawshank Redemption's 20th anniversary, The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences held a celebration screening and Q&A at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. In attendance was the movie's writer-director Frank Darabont, as well as its stars, Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. While sharing some insights on the film and its making, the trio dropped »

Afm: Upi Takes Spain on Del Toro, Robbins, Kurylenko Starrer ‘A Perfect Day,’

6 November 2014 12:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal Pictures International Spain has acquired Spanish rights to Fernando Leon’s war-zone set human drama “A Perfect Day,” starring Oscar winners Benicio del Toro (“Traffic”) and Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”) as well as actresses Olga Kurylenko (“Oblivion”) and Melanie Thierry (“The Zero Theorem”).

Upi will release “A Perfect Day” in Spain in 2015. Selling international rights to “A Perfect Day,” WestEnd Films will show a new promo to international buyers at the American Film Market on Sunday.

The first English-language film from Leon, a popular Spanish auteur distinguished by the humor of his social-issue dramas, “Perfect Day” is a dramedy-thriller, turning on a motley group of war-zone aid workers dealing with their own very human dramas: Mambru (Del Toro) wants to go home; Katya once wanted Mambru; B (Robbins) doesn’t know what he wants. And what they want rarely matches what they need. When a corpse contaminates the local well, »

30 October 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Twilight Zone to Penny Dreadful, Doctor Who and more, Den Of Geek’s writers revisit the TV episodes that truly terrify them…

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.

In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.

Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »

The bonkers brilliance of Regular Show

22 October 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Season one of Cartoon Network's insanely creative Regular Show has finally reached the UK on DVD. Here's why it's worth tracking down...

“Ah, yeah. I love Adventure Time too. Do you watch Regular Show?”

I’ve been asked variations of this question about 50 times. I’ve taken the UK first season DVD release as my prompt to finally check out Regular Show, and it turns out that all those annoying people going on about it all this time were right. I’m one of them now. Do you like Adventure Time? Cool, yeah, me too. Do you watch Regular Show? You should check it out. It’s really good. Here’s what’s so good about it.

Regular Show is about Mordecai, a blue jay, and Rigby, a raccoon. They’re a couple of twenty-something slackers who are more interested in playing video-games than doing their jobs at the park where they’re employed. »

Elizabeth Peña has passed away. The actress, with a professional career spanning nearly 40 years, left us on the night of October 14 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She had recently wrapped work on the first season of the El Rey Network's action series, Matador, where she played the title character's mother Maritza.

Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey and raised by her Cuban immigrant parents, Peña was destined for a career in the arts. Her father, Mario, was a playwright, director, actor, and designer in their native Cuba, who opened up the Latin American Theatre Ensemble after establishing a life for he and his family in New York. As a teen, Peña began making a name for herself as a formidable young actress in the New York theatre scene.

'Cristela' creator talks sitcom inspiration, 'Golden Girls'

10 October 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Cristela Alonzo has come a long way from her childhood, eight years of which she spent living with her family in an abandoned diner in South Texas. It wasn’t exactly the townhouse from her favorite childhood sitcom, The Cosby Show. Which is why it’s funny that years later, the 35-year-old comedian now has her own semi-autobiographical show, about a law student-turned-intern who tries to balance her career with the concerns of family life. “I think I got here because I grew up really poor,” Alonzo says of her piecemeal-to-primetime story. “My family didn’t have money and I think it made me fearless. »
