Remembering the First and Only Arab World Movie Star Known Around the Globe

23 July 2015 9:10 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Omar Sharif in 'Doctor Zhivago.' Egyptian star Omar Sharif, 'The Karate Kid' producer Jerry Weintraub: Brief career recaps A little late in the game – and following the longish Theodore Bikel article posted yesterday – below are brief career recaps of a couple of film veterans who died in July 2015: actor Omar Sharif and producer Jerry Weintraub. A follow-up post will offer an overview of the career of peplum (sword-and-sandal movie) actor Jacques Sernas, whose passing earlier this month has been all but ignored by the myopic English-language media. Omar Sharif: Film career beginnings in North Africa The death of Egyptian film actor Omar Sharif at age 83 following a heart attack on July 10 would have been ignored by the English-language media (especially in the U.S.) as well had Sharif remained a star within the Arabic-speaking world. After all, an "international" star is only worth remembering »

'Back to the Future': 30 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Time-Travel Classic

3 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Since its release 30 years ago this week (on July 3, 1985), "Back to the Future" has been everyone's favorite time-travel movie. It's remained a must-see long enough for Marty McFly's own kids to enjoy it.

Even so, there's much you may not know about the beloved sci-fi comedy, from the unused ideas that popped up in other films, to why there has yet to (thankfully) be a reboot. To celebrate the film's 30th anniversary, we're firing up the flux capacitor and traveling back 30 years to learn the secrets of "Back to the Future."

1. Director Robert Zemeckis and co-screenwriter Bob Gale (pictured above) tried for years to create a time-travel story. The key came in 1980, when Gale was looking over his father's high school yearbook and wondered whether he and his father would have been friends if they'd both been teenagers at the same time.

2. Zemeckis and Gale took their idea to Steven Spielberg, »

What do the cast of Back to the Future look like now? Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, more

3 July 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the run-up to Back to the Future's 30th anniversary on July 3, Digital Spy presents a week of special features celebrating the time-travel classic.

Great Scott! Has it really been 30 years? Back to the Future celebrates a landmark anniversary this week, so to mark the occasion we take a look back at the film to find out what the cast were doing then and where they are now.

We get all misty-eyed and nostalgic about Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and their Bttf cast-mates below!

Michael J Fox

A huge teen idol thanks to his role in sitcom Family Ties, Fox initially wasn't able to play Marty McFly due to a scheduling conflict with his TV show. The part of Marty went to Eric Stoltz, he was fired five weeks into filming, then Fox jumped on board as a last-minute replacement. The schedule was gruelling (10am-6pm on Family Ties, »

Nicolas Cage and Mike Figgis Reunite for First Time Since 'Leaving Las Vegas'

15 May 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Mike Figgis has tapped Nicolas Cage to star in his thriller "Exit 147," THR reports. Written by Travis Milloy ("Pandorum"), the darkly humorous film follows Cage as a corrupt policeman who arrests a woman's abusive partner, only to become entangled in a series of sick mind games. The film will weave various story strands with multiple characters. "This is the kind of story that turns up once in a blue moon," Higgis told THR of this "dream project for a small ensemble." Figgis hasn't had a film hit quite as hard since his "Leaving Las Vegas," a deeply depressing story of a failed screenwriter (Cage, unhinged and sympathetic, won the Oscar that year) who meets a heart-of-gold prostitute (Elisabeth Shue, also nominated that year) on his way to rock bottom. Cage will soon be seen in Oliver Stone's Edward Snowden biopic opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt. “Exit 147″ is produced by Lenny Beckerman of Uber Content, »

3D in the 21st Century. "Piranha 3D": The Floating World

14 May 2015 10:14 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

“Yet the punctum shows no preference for morality or good taste; the punctum can be ill-bred.” —Roland Barthes, Camera LucidaThe first rude challenge of this movie is watching it without permanently devaluing Spring Breakers as a hot, precious high-conceptualist mess compared to the crisp genre elegance on parade here. I can’t be certain, but it seems like Harmony Korine dreamed up his movie drowsing behind his shades during a matinee reverie of this insta-classic. If not, he should have! The plot has a documentary-like simplicity. Maybe it really happened. Ancestral fish-freaks buzzsaw into the thumping “sexy-time” heart of American youth culture, during a Spring Break weekend on a desert lake in Arizona. That’s it. The Sayles/Dante original, recall if you must, was a lame anti-authoritarian parable (the seminal proto-SyFy Channel movie) with occasional dark comic touches. Piranha 3D is not a parable of anything, thank Corman! It »

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

6 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

CSI to Be Cancelled, But Will It Get a Farewell Season?

1 May 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Plenty of comedy has been mined from the fact that network television is now mostly a wasteland of procedurals in which women are gruesomely murdered, but that trend’s origin show is coming to an end. CSI first premiered in 2000, where it quickly became a smash hit for CBS, offering a science-geared alternative to the litany of doctor and lawyer shows that dominated TV at the time. It has since spawned multiple spinoffs, and while CSI: Miami and CSI: NY are long gone, it appears that the mothership show is poised to join them. The writing has been on the wall for some time as ratings have waned, and current star Ted Danson (side note: Yes, Ted Danson is the star of CSI right now) reached the end of his contract with the 15th season, which aired its finale in April. CBS just launched a new spinoff, the Patricia Arquette-fronted CSI: Cyber, »

StreamFix: 'Star Wars' cast members in other movie classics

16 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's a bigger "Star Wars" day today than usual, so why not celebrate it with a trip into the cinematic past? On StreamFix we're counting up the best options for online viewings of classics starring old and new cast members from "Star Wars." Here's where you should begin in your trek to experience these stars at their best. Harrison Ford: "Witness" (Netflix) I'll just say it: This is the greatest movie in Harrison Ford's oeuvre. A suspenseful, great-looking movie with superb storytelling (the '85 Original Screenplay Oscar winner) and a damn good role for Kelly McGillis. It's about our man H. Ford protecting an Amish boy who witnesses a murder, but there are too many interesting anomalies to discuss within. I'll mention only two: This is the first of two action movies starring blond Russian dance icon Alexander Godunov (the other being "Die Hard," of course), and it »

Elisabeth Shue & Jason Schwartzman to Guest Star on Starz’s ‘Blunt Talk’

5 March 2015 12:33 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Elisabeth Shue and Jason Schwartzman are set to guest star on Starz’s upcoming comedy, “Blunt Talk,” the cabler announced Thursday.

The Patrick Stewart-starrer, centers around Walter Blunt (Stewart), a Brit who’s intent on taking over American cable news with his nightly cable news show, aptly titled “Blunt Talk.” Besieged by his network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, ex-wives and children, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant (Adrian Scarborough) he transplanted from the UK to join him in Los Angeles.

Shue and Schwartzman will both appear as possible guests on Blunt’s (Patrick Stewart) show.

Other guest stars for Season 1 include musician and actor Moby, Sharon Lawrence (“Rizzoli & Isles,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Trace Lysette (“Transparent”), Golden Brooks (“Girlfriends”), Windell D. Middlebrooks (“Body Of Proof,” “Scrubs”) and Steve Valentine (“Anger Management”).

Alongside Stewart, Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”) plays Rosalie, Blunt’s tough and motherly producer-manager; Dolly Wells (“Doll & Em, »

6 Movie Recasts Too Obvious to Ignore

4 March 2015 4:14 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Fans don’t want to see it. Studios try to avoid it. But sometimes a recast in the midst of a movie franchise is inevitable.

Whether it be a scheduling conflict, salary negotiations gone wrong, or even an unexpected death – we’re taking a look at six times a movie recast was too obvious to ignore.

1. James “Rhodey” Rhodes – The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Terrence Howard played James “Rhodey” Rhodes in 2008’s Iron Man. But a salary conflict stopped Terrence from returning for the sequel. Re-casting Don Cheadle as Rhodey for Iron Man 2 was a bit obvious, so Marvel made a light of it in the 2010 sequel. Cheadle’s first line: “Look, it’s me. I'm here. Deal with it. Let's move on.”

2. The Incredible Hulk – The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Edward Norton played The Incredible Hulk in the 2008 standalone film. But when it came time for The Avengers, Marvel decided the team would assemble sans Norton. [link »

Ten Best: Nicolas Cage roles

26 February 2015 3:29 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Cult favourite Nicolas Cage has carved out an eclectic and brilliant career spanning the decades and across genres, with forays into action, drama and comic book adaptations to name but a few. To celebrate the release of his latest film, Dying of the Light, out on Blu-ray and DVD from the 2nd March 2015 courtesy of Signature Entertainment, we take a look back at some of his greatest roles.

Dying of the Light (2015)

This brilliant thriller, directed by Paul Schrader and executive produced by cinematic wunderkind Nicolas Winding Refn, stars Cage as Evan Lake, a desk-bound Langley CIA agent, forced into retirement by signs of early onset dementia. At the same time he discovers that his former nemesis, Jihadist Muhhamed Banir (Alexander KarimZero Dark Thirty, TV’s Tyrant), is not dead as has been assumed for the last two decades, but alive and receiving experimental medical treatment.

‘CSI’ Heads to Hulu in First Svod Pact

19 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu has picked up rerun rights to 14 seasons — and counting — of CBS’ veteran procedural drama “CSI.”

The deal marks the first Svod licensing pact for the series that ranked as primetime’s most-watched drama during the first seven years of its run. Episodes from 14 seasons will be available on Hulu Plus as an Svod exclusive starting in early April.

The deal calls for Hulu to carry future seasons of the show, adding episodes after each season wraps on CBS. There has been speculation that the current 15th season may be the last for the series that launched the global franchise revolving around the work of criminal forensic investigators. The third and latest spinoff of the “CSI” mothership, “CSI: Cyber,” is set to debut March 4 on CBS.

Financial details were not disclosed, but with more than 300 episodes in the can already, Hulu is undoubtedly making a huge financial commitment to the series. »

Exclusive Cool Video: Movie CliffsNotes - The Karate Kid

16 February 2015 3:29 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The latest installment of Movie CliffsNotes takes us back to one of the most notable films of the '80's: The Karate Kid, starring Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, Elizabeth Shue, and William Zabka. Growing up, this was a film that was in regular rotation for me, right next to The Goonies, Pee-wee's Big Adventure, The Dark Crystal, and Robocop (yes, my parents were shitty at monitoring ratings). The Karate Kid inspired a smorgasbord of pop culture references, from Cobra »

Disney revives Adventures in Babysitting remake, cast revealed

10 January 2015 11:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2012, it was revealed that Disney was developing a remake to the cult 1987 comedy Adventures in Babysitting, with Raven-Symone and Miley Cyrus both linked to the film, which was going by the title of Further Adventures of Babysitting.

Given the complete lack of news since that point, it was assumed that the project had since fallen apart. However, Disney Channel has now announced that the remake is going ahead as a TV movie, and will star Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) and Sofia Carson (Austin & Ally) as two rival babysitters looking to track down a missing kid.

The original Adventures in Babysitting marked the directorial debut of Chris Columbus and saw Elisabeth Shue leading the cast. A success at both the box office and on home video, it spawned a 1989 TV pilot starring Jennifer Guthrie, which failed to get a series order.

Disney Channel Plans "Babysitting" Sequel

9 January 2015 3:22 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sabrina Carpenter ("Girl Meets World") and Sofia Carson ("Disney's Descendants") are set to star in "Further Adventures in Babysitting," a Disney Channel original telemovie said to be "inspired by" Chris Columbus‘ 1987 comedy classic "Adventures in Babysitting" (aka. "A Night on the Town").

The original starred Elizabeth Shue as a babysitter who winds up getting into some crazy situations with three kids she’s supposed to be babysitting. While it performed only so-so at the box-office, it became a big hit on video and TV. These days it's seen as a seminal film of the decade like "The Goonies" and "The Breakfast Club".

An attempt was made back in 2007 to remake it with Raven Symone, that version thankfully fell through. This telemovie take will be penned by Tiffany Paulsen ("Nancy Drew") and deals with two competing babysitters who go on the hunt for a missing child.

Adventures in Babysitting getting a Disney Channel remake

9 January 2015 12:15 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The 1987 comedy Adventures In Babysitting from Chris Columbus is one of those great movies you can watch every few years and still get a kick out of it. Elizabeth Shue starred as a babysitter who winds up getting more than she bargained for when she and the three kids she's babysitting venture off into some shenanigans that almost get them killed. There was a sort-of remake a few years ago with Jonah Hill called The Sitter; it’s essentially the same movie but with a lot more »
