Legendary Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub has passed away at the age of 77. Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub dead at 77

Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub has died at the age of 77.

TMZ reports the Tinseltown legend – who produced movies such as the ‘Ocean’s 11‘ remake and the ‘Karate Kid‘ franchise – passed away on Monday (06.07.15) at his Palm Springs home.

He is believed to have been suffering ill health recently and was surrounded by family members when he passed away.

Jerry split from his wife Jane Morgan in the 1980s after approximately 20 years of marriage, although they never divorced.

He has been living with girlfriend Susie Ekins for almost 20 years and earlier this year spoke about his amicable relationship with Jane, revealing that she calls him daily.

He explained to Vanity Fair that every day: “Each of my four children and Jane, my wife, will call to check in.”

The couple have three adopted daughters, »

Legendary Producer Jerry Weintraub Dies at 77

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Weintraub, the colorful and controversial producer whose films included “Nashville,” “Diner,” “The Karate Kid” and the trio of “Ocean’s Eleven” films, died Monday of cardiac arrest in Santa Barbara, Calif. He was 77. He had been in poor health recently.

When he received Variety‘s Creative Leadership Award in 2013, Weintraub told Variety that he had a yacht and a Rolls-Royce, but was “not a big Hollywood guy.” Some would disagree. He was actually an old-school Hollywood showman, who understood the relationship between production and marketing. He was also a snappy dresser — his shoes were colorful and fun — who knew how to work the room and how to work the press: He was always available to the media and when he had a film in release, he knew how to maximize public awareness.

But the showiness was backed by hard work. His savvy came after decades of performing in many different jobs in the industry. »

“Creed”: An under the radar Oscar contender?

14 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Ladies and gentlemen, I know it sounds silly, but a sequel/spinoff from Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky films might be in awards contention this year. Yes, the upcoming movie Creed is another installment in the franchise centered around fighter Rocky Balboa, but this one takes a U-turn. Instead of being about Stallone’s pugilist, it’s about former rival turned friend Apollo Creed’s son. Rocky is more the trainer than the protagonist, essentially re-launching this series with a grittier and younger bent to it. A Trailer hit last week and really impressed me (which you’ll see below), leading me to wonder if the Academy might once again be interested in this franchise? For those who don’t know, the first Rocky with a big time Oscar contender, nominated for ten Academy Awards and winning three (Best Picture, Best Director for John G. Avildsen, and Best Film Editing). Stallone himself was cited two times, »

Will 'Creed' be Oscars knockout for 'Rocky' franchise?

1 July 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Now that the trailer for "Creed" has been released by Warner Bros. (watch below), we're left to wonder: Will the film be an Oscars comeback for the "Rocky" franchise, or will it be an afterthought like so many of its sequels? Sound off in our movie forums on this hot topic. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders "Creed" reunites "Fruitvale Station" director Ryan Coogler with Michael B. Jordan, who stars as the titular Adonis Creed (son of Apollo). This is the seventh film in the popular boxing franchise, and yes, Sylvester Stallone returns as the iconic Rocky Balboa. So far, the franchise has racked up 11 total Oscar nominations. However, a whopping 10 of those came for the inaugural film in 1976. Many of the sequels received tepid reviews and were far from awards contenders ... unless you count the Razzies. Let's take a look at how the first half-dozen films fared at the Oscars. »

A celebration of Carl Weathers, the man behind Rocky's Apollo Creed

1 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It only took one view of the Creed trailer for the memories to come flooding back. The Rocky spinoff sees Sylvester Stallone on hand to train the son of his one-time nemesis Apollo Creed.

Of course, Carl Weathers, the man who brought Apollo to life, won't be present in the film (unless there's a Burgess Meredith-like spectral reappearance!), so we've taken some time out to celebrate the man behind the original Creed.

Rocky & Apollo Forever

Weathers played Apollo Creed in the first four Rocky films, duelling with Balboa before the pair eventually become brothers in arms. A thunderous punch from Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) shockingly killed Creed, prompting Rock to vow revenge in the ring.

Apollo is in Creed only in spirit, but there are still many fond memories. Chief of which has to be the above montage from Rocky III. Pure cheese, pure joy.

Michael B. Jordan Shows Off Buff Boxing Bod In First 'Creed' Trailer

1 July 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Michael B. Jordan is ready to get in the ring! The actor is putting on the gloves for the upcoming Rocky spinoff, "Creed," and we're getting glimpse at his buff boxing bod in the first trailer for the movie.  Jordan plays Adonis Creed, the son of Stallone's former on-screen nemesis Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). "It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward," Jordan says at one point, quoting Rocky. We see Creed track down Balboa himself after heading to Philly for training -- yep, Sylvester Stallone is in this one too. For "Rocky" fans, it's definitely worth watching. Not only that, Michael's super-fit physique will definitely get your blood boiling! The film also stars Tessa Thompson as Adonis' love interest, as well as Phylicia Rashad as his mother -- taking over the role of Mary Anne Creed from Lavelle Roby and Sylvia Meals. »

Watch Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone in the First Trailer for Rocky Spinoff Creed

1 July 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

So. Many. Chills.  The first trailer for upcoming Rocky spinoff Creed just debuted and it's nothing short of intense. Scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 25, Creed stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa's (Sylvester Stallone) former enemy in the octagon, Apollo Creed. Though Apollo died before Jordan's character was born, boxing runs through his blood, leaving him no choice but to seek out Stallone as a potential trainer.  "I've been fighting my whole life. It's not a choice for me," the Fantastic Four star explains in the trailer. "Every punch I've ever thrown has been on my own." It's not until Stallone finds Jordan »

Watch: Michael B. Jordan Muscles Up in Trailer for Rocky Spinoff 'Creed'

1 July 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Ryan Coogler's Sundance and Cannes winner "Fruitvale Station" hit theaters in July, MGM quickly scooped up the maverick indie to write and direct this seventh film in the "Rocky" series, co-penned by Aaron Covington. How will Coogler fare on a big-budget Hollywood canvas? We shall see when Warner Bros. opens "Creed" on the awards (and family) friendly date of November 25. "Creed" takes the original Apollo Creed/Rocky Balboa story and follows Adonis Creed (a ripped Michael B. Jordan), the son of world heavyweight champ Apollo, trying to make his way in Philadelphia. He turns to Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), his father's close friend and fierce rival, for help and mentorship. Judging from footage in CinemaCon and the trailer below, it looks gritty and terrific. "It's not 'Rocky 7,'" Stallone told exhibitors. Tessa Thompson and real-life boxers Tony Bellew and Andrew Ward round out the »

First 'Creed' Trailer Shows Rocky Still Packs a Punch

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

"Creed" is already a hit online, but will it be a knockout in theaters this November? The movie's tagline is "Your legacy is more than a name," but the names Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa, Apollo Creed, and Michael B. Jordan are selling this latest entry into the "Rocky" franchise.

The first official "Creed" trailer dropped last night and it already has more than 1,025,000 YouTube views. Jordan stars as the son of Apollo Creed, who heads to Philadelphia to track down his late father's legendary rival-turned-friend, Rocky Balboa, to ask him to be his own trainer.

Here's the 2 minute, 43 second trailer. It doesn't even reveal Stallone until the halfway point, emphasizing that this isn't his story.

"Creed" is directed by Ryan Coogler, who knocked it out of the park (more sports metaphors!) with Michael B. Jordan in "Fruitvale Station." "Creed" co-stars Phylicia Rashad, Tessa Thompson, Tony Bellew, Wood Harris ("The Wire" reunion! »

Back to the Future turns 30: How the world looked in 1955, 1985 and 2015

1 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.

Has it really been 30 years since Back to the Future first arrived in cinemas? The '80s classic is one of those films that stands firm under repeat viewings, retaining its humour, heart and on-point performances from Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and co. Simply put, there isn't a frame out of place in Back to the Future.

Though Robert Zemeckis's film still feels as fresh as ever, the world has changed dramatically across the three main periods the Back to the Future series spans. Digital Spy digs deep into the history books to find out how the world looked in 1955, 1984, and where we are now.
