Dang, Bruce Willis, How Did You Get So Good at Bowling?

9 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Say, which member of the Pulp Fiction cast would be the best at making your child cry during their 11th birthday party? That would be Bruce Willis, who "Page Six" reports was seen rolling a whopping 286 at a Misery after-party at a bowling alley Saturday. And he did it in between "drinking vodka and showing off his dance skills." Yippee-ki-yay! Tell us, Bruce Willis: How did you get so good at bowling? Is it because of your resemblance to a bowling pin? Did Steve Buscemi teach you during the production of Armageddon? Or maybe, is Joseph Gordon-Levitt about to start practicing? »

6 February 2016 2:41 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Demi Moore's youngest child Tallulah Willis celebrated her 22nd birthday recently, but it was her mother who received the most heartwarming gift—the gift of gratitude. Tallulah, whose father is Moore's ex-husband Bruce Willis, posted on her Instagram page recently a photo showing her jumping up and cuddling her mom while in a fetal position. "Thanks for holding me in your body for 9 months bb," she wrote. Tallulah celebrated her birthday with her mother and sisters Rumer Willis, 27, and Scout Larue Willis, 24.

From Body Snatchers to World War Z, here are 12 movies intended to have downbeat endings, but were changed for their theatrical release...

"Good does not always triumph. Sometimes, the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called the better angels of our nature."

Downbeat endings are by no means out of the question in mainstream movies, but there have been times where filmmakers have, often at the last minute, had to go back and shoot a happier ending for one reason or another. For your delectation, »

Kevin Smith responds to the negative reviews for Yoga Hosers

2 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kevin Smith’s second movie in his True North trilogy, Yoga Hosers, debuted at Sundance last week and was trashed by virtually every outlet and critic. The movie, which stars his daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose, was described by the director as “the movie I always wanted to see when I was a 12-year old girl”.

“I was at 3 screenings, and it played wonderfully,” he said on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast. “It was a wonderful experience watching the girls ascend and start doing interviews. People ate them up like candy, it was really fucking sweet. The critics on the other hand – holy fuck. Like I get it, the movie’s not for everyone. And based on what I read it’s not for anyone. But, wow. I was ready for it, but I didn’t read much. I just got a sense from everyone around me. »

We Don't Need Roads: All your favourite time travel movies in one supercut

2 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ever since Marty McFly stepped into the DeLorean and accidentally transported himself to the year 1955, time travel has become an increasingly interesting, puzzling, and miraculous concept that cinema-goers get to experience through film.

A recent film that expertly uses time travel in an original and spell-binding way is Rian Johnson's Looper. Starring Joseph Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis as an assassin from the future who goes back in time on a mission to kill himself, Looper spins the time-travel genre on its head and delivers a complex moral tale that is high on action and that left us floored. 

Looper screens as part of the Great Digital Film Festival which runs from February 5th-11th. Click here for tickets and showtimes.

Time travel in film has seen many incarnations. From Tom Cruise resetting the day every time he dies in Edge of Tomorrow to four dudes in a hot »

9 Film Projects That Were Rewritten to Become Sequels

30 January 2016 9:14 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We recently saw the release of the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which started life as an independent film unrelated to Cloverfield but was rewritten as a sequel (of sorts). This got us thinking about other films that were conceived as original projects but were altered by studios to become sequels to existing franchises.

When 10 Cloverfield Lane started out, it was an independent film called The Cellar, about a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who wakes up injured and locked in the bunker-like cellar of a man (John Goodman) she’s never met before. The strange man tells her that he found after an accident and brought her there to minister to her wounds but then a cataclysmic disaster ravaged the surface world and she has to stay there. She doesn’t believe him and spends the rest of the film trying to escape, while her memories of the night of her accident slowly return. »

Watch Kevin Spacey As a Cat in 'Nine Lives' Trailer

29 January 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The very silly comedy Look Who's Talking became an unexpected hit back in 1989. Produced for less than $10 million, the movie ended up earning nearly $300 million at the box office worldwide. Much of that success can be credited to the brilliant idea to have Bruce Willis as the incongruous voice of the newborn baby Mikey. Hearing Willis wisecracking throughout the movie, much as he did in 1988's Die Hard, made it a memorable experience. Since then, many movies have endeavored to duplicate that unexpected success by casting funny actors in comic voice roles and the latest example is on its way to the big screen this summer. Nine Lives follows a straitlaced businessman (Kevin Spacey) who somehow is trapped inside the body of his family's cat. The first trailer gives a...

'12 Monkeys' Season 2 Trailer Reunites Cole and Cassie During WWII

28 January 2016 1:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Around this time last year, Syfy debuted its new series 12 Monkeys, based on the hit 1995 movie of the same name, which became a hit with fans and critics alike. Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a bit longer for Season 2 to roll around, with the network announcing earlier this month that the second season will debut Monday, April 18 at 9 Pm Et. Earlier today, the network released the first trailer for 12 Monkeys Season 2, which reveals that the show is shifting back in time to World War II.

In the Season 1 finale, Cassie Railly (Amanda Schull) was sent forward into time, to the year 2043, but this season, she'll be reuniting with James Cole (Aaron Stanford) in the past. This trailer features Jones (Barbara Sukowa) revealing to Cassie that she must go back in time to help James, who is on a mission during World War II.

Alan Rickman Remembered: Celebrating His Life and the Movies That Moved Us

23 January 2016 9:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For most actors, it's in the eyes - that's where the camera lingers. Alan Rickman had an extra gift: a voice that sparked shivers of every sort. He used it to disarm Bruce Willis in Die Hard, to woo Kate Winslet in Sense and Sensibility and to rattle Daniel Radcliffe in the Harry Potter films. That rumbling bass baritone moved audiences and made Rickman one of the most respected actors of his generation. When it was silenced by cancer on Jan. 14, the only thing left to feel was heartbreak. He was 69. Born in London, the classically trained actor earned acclaim on the British stage, »

'Die Hard' Prequel Director Len Wiseman Explains Bruce Willis' Involvement

20 January 2016 10:09 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"Die Hard" is a franchise that has certainly seen better days. The most recent installment, "A Good Day to Die Hard," did a great job of crushing whatever viability the series had in staying relevant. Of course, that never stops studios for thinking of ways to inject a known entity some extra juice, and it was only a matter of time before "Die Hard" fell victim to prequel or reboot-itis.

Luckily for us, the man in charge of this "reboot" of sorts isn't the man responsible for "A Good Day to Die Hard," but rather, Len Wiseman, the man who gave us what I thought was a pretty solid action picture, "Live Free or Die Hard." Sure, by that point in the franchise, Bruce Willis' character was less the "Why me?" character we've learned to love, and more of an unstoppable force that the villain ran from like a scared dog. »

"Die Hard: Year One" To Be Set On Nye 1979

20 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the upcoming sixth "Die Hard" film likely to be the last, 20th Century Fox's action franchise is said to be going back in time at least partially for the new outing.

We learned the other week that "Die Hard: Year One" would employ a "The Godfather Part II" style structure - jumping between the present day and the past to tell a story that has elements across both time periods. Those past scenes would involve the early career of Bruce Willis' John McClane character.

Speaking with Collider, producer Len Wiseman went into more detail about the specific time setting and how the project will interconnect:

"[In the first 'Die Hard'] He's already divorced, he's bitter, his Captain hates him and doesn't want him back. So, what created that guy? We've never seen the actual love story. We know its demise, but we've never seen what it was like when he met Holly, or »

Len Wiseman Talks ‘Die Hard: Year One’ Set On New Years’ Eve 1979

20 January 2016 8:19 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, “Die Hard: Year One” is still a thing because even though no one liked “A Good Day To Die Hard,” and everyone wishes 20th Century Fox would let John McClane and the franchise rest in peace, a brand is a brand is a brand, so the studio is pushing ahead. And helping shepherd it along is Len Wiseman (“Live Free Or Die Hard”), who is one of the producers, and he explains how the prequel/sequel will fit in the returning Bruce Willis, while also telling us the backstory of the character we didn’t know we wanted. “[In the first ‘Die Hard’] He’s already divorced, he’s bitter, his Captain hates him and doesn’t want him back. So, what created that guy?” Wiseman told Collider. “We’ve never seen the actual love story. We know its demise, but we’ve never seen what it was like when he met Holly, »

12 Guilty Pleasure Action Movies You Need To See

19 January 2016 2:48 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TriStar

Back in the day an audience’s appetite for action was sated by Glenn Ford on a horse, a sword and sandals epic, or a movie about how America won WWII for the Allies. But all of that changed when Hollywood discovered the blockbuster.

As the movies became bigger, plots got smaller and expectations had to be reduced in order sit through them. Movies like Tango & Cash or Hudson Hawk might’ve been big, but they weren’t particularly clever, and didn’t offer much in the way of thrills. Last Action Hero, hyped by Arnold Schwarzenegger as “big, gigantic, monstrous”, was basically a bad joke made at the expense of the films that had made him a star. Van Damme in Sudden Death? Steven Seagal’s On Deadly Ground? Horrendous. All of them.

But somewhere between the lows of Seagal’s oeuvre and the highs of Die Hard »
