What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

21 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

‘Equalizer’ Director Antoine Fuqua: ‘I Don’t Believe I Should Filter the Violence’

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

Thirteen years after creating one of cinema’s nastiest villains, corrupt cop Alonzo Harris, “Training Day” star Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua have teamed up on another gritty thriller, “The Equalizer.” The film, which opened Sept. 26, is a more violent adaptation of the 1980s CBS series.

What makes Denzel different than other A-list actors you’ve worked with?

He gives his heart to the project. There’s no ego. It’s not ‘Oh the coffee’s not right’ or ‘I’ve got to jump on my private jet.’ He’s there 24/7. He had lunch every day with the entire crew.

You box in your spare time. Why do you enjoy the sport?

I leave the ring calm. Any aggression I have, I get it out in the ring or on the bags.

You make a lot of hard-r movies. Why do you like that genre? 

I’m not attracted to violent material. »

Hug A Vegetarian Today!

23 hours ago | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Happy World Vegetarian Day! That’s right, us plant-based folks have our own day to celebrate our meatless lifestyle.

Healthy Hollywood, along with celebrities like Carrie Underwood, Olivia Wilde and Denzel Washington, have all pledged to hold the beef.

And with the push to eat healthier, most of us know that following a plant-based diet has major health benefits. For starters, vegetarians are leaner, tend to live longer, have lower blood pressure and overall more robust energy.

"Incorporating more plant-based protein into your diet and cutting back on meat is beneficial to your health and to the environment. ...

Destroy All Monsters: Expendable Equalizers Walk Among Tombstones

1 October 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Is Hollywood's fascination with the older male asskicker a new thing? Its resurgence certainly seems to be. I know there were Death Wish sequels in the '80s; and before that, I know John Wayne kept shooting at people long past the age most people stop. Unforgiven took the form and turned it into meaningful criticism. Et cetera, et cetera. But this thing that's going on now, where Liam Neeson has a particular set of skills and/or Denzel Washington works at Home Depot but secretly kicks ass? It feels new. And it feels like it has something of a surly, selfish purpose. I mark the start of the operation at around 2007, or Live Free Or Die Hard (sometimes called Die Hard 4). We could also,...

Movie Review – The Equalizer (2014)

30 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Equalizer, 2014.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua.

Starring Denzel Washington, Chloe Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, David Meunier, Haley Bennett, Bill Pullman, Melissa Leo, David Harbour, and Robert Wahlberg.

Synopsis:

A man believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and has dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her.

There’s a scene towards the end of The Equalizer where the stakes should be at their highest. The bad guy is about to kill an innocent man and, right on cue, in walks our hero, Denzel Washington. Water pours down from the sprinkler system overhead, he has a nail gun raised and poised to pull the trigger. The entire scene takes place in slow motion, the thunderous and obnoxious score blasts out, and I believe »

Billy Elliot tops the UK box office (but not that version)

30 September 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Denzel Washington scores a big opening for The Equalizer - but Billy Elliot has gone one better...

The growing phenomena of event cinema took another step forward over the weekend, as a special performance of Billy Elliot The Musical was broadcast live to cinemas (both in the UK and abroad) from the stage of the Palace Theatre in London.

Reuniting the three people who originated the role of Billy Elliot on the stage - Liam Mower, James Lomas and George Maguire - amongst a cast of past Billys, what's of particular note is just how much business the performance did in cinemas. For early figures suggest that Billy Elliot The Musical Live topped the UK box office over the weekend, with a take of £1.9m. Second placed The Equalizer grossed £1.89m.

Billy Elliot has thus enjoyed the biggest opening for any event cinema presentation thus far (beating even Doctor Who »

Denzel Washington's Silliest ‘Equalizer’ Moments — No Car, No Gun, No Problem

29 September 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Denzel Washington killed the competition and the bad guys this weekend with his action thriller “The Equalizer,” and he did it without a car, a sidekick or a gun. Washington plays Robert McCall, an ex-special forces op living under a new identity in the crime drama directed by Antoine Fuqua. The film, which reunited the Oscar-winning actor with his ”Training Day” director, opened at No. 1 with an explosive $35 million debut — propelled by a huge body count and a series of over-the-top scenes.

Why The Equalizer 2 Will Almost Certainly Happen Now

29 September 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sony had its sights set on The Equalizer 2 long before Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua.s hard-hitting justice thriller opened to a robust $34.1 million . Washington.s best opening since 2012.s Safe House notched $40.1 million. Those who saw The Equalizer in theaters know that a franchise officially is launched with this initial movie. But where do we stand as far as the immediate future for The Equalizer 2? During an exclusive conversation with Antoine Fuqua regarding his latest movie, we got around to talking about plans he might have for the follow up. He told me: We have talked about it a lot. Myself, the studio and Denzel. Everybody wants to. We.re all adults, we know. Let the audience decide, and we.ll roll with the results. If all goes well, I.ll definitely be back. I would love to do it again. I think there is a lot of room, »

Box Office Final: ‘The Equalizer’ $34.1M; ‘Boxtrolls’ $17.2M For No. 3 Behind ‘Maze Runner’s $17.4M

29 September 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Monday, 1:44 Pm: The Equalizer came in beneath Sony’s estimates, bringing in $34.1 million for the three-day weekend, easily running over the other newcomer, the animated The Boxtrolls. However, the Denzel Washington film is likely to get side-swiped next weekend by the David Fincher-directed mystery thriller Gone Girl, which is already tracking well for an expected big weekend haul for Fox. Based on the best-selling book by Gillian Flynn, the Ben Affleck-starrer may end up cannibalizing the audience away from Denzel. Gone Girl opens in 50 markets around the world next weekend, too, giving it the first wide international rollout of the fall.

Meanwhile, Focus Features’ The Boxtrolls ended up with a $17.2M take as the first animated fare since June to grace theaters. It gets another weekend before Disney drops Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day on October 10. Heck of a title and »

How ‘Boxtrolls’ Out-of-the-Box Marketing Served Up Box-Office Success

29 September 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It would be easy to overlook the surprisingly strong opening of “The Boxtrolls” amid the hail of box-office bullets fired by Denzel Washington‘s “The Equalizer,” which won the weekend with an explosive $35 million debut. But the $17.2 million opening by the 3D stop-action animated kids movie was notable because it's the best ever for Laika Entertainment, the production company headed by Nike founder Phil Knight and run by his son Travis, who is both the CEO and an animator on its films. Any animated movie scoring at the box office is news this year, which is one of the weakest. »

Leaderboards Updated: 'Equalizer' #1, 'BoxTrolls' Strong, Neeson's 'Tombstones' Dips

29 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Nothing all that new to report that wasn't previously discussed yesterday morning as this weekend's estimates were pretty much spot on. Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington took the #1 spot to the tune of $34.1 million, which was about $900,000 less than estimated, but that's no huge surprise. Opening day audiences gave the film an "A-" CinemaScore, which could make next weekend's drop interesting, though facing off against David Fincher's Gone Girl and Annabelle could be tough given there are so many R-rated movies today's movie going audiences can support at once. In second was last weekend's #1 film, The Maze Runner, which dropped only 46.4% to $17.4 million, which is far better than we saw from Liam Neeson's A Walk Among the Tombstones, which fell 67.1% and finished its sophomore weekend with $4.1 million. The weekend's other new release was Laika's The BoxTrolls, which earned the stop motion animation studio its highest opening to date at $17.2 million. »
