31 Famous Actors Who’ve Guest-Starred on ‘Sex and the City’

6 October 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Considered a groundbreaking show when it premiered in 1998, “Sex and the City” followed sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and her friends Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), and Charlotte (Kristin Davis), as they navigated sex and romance in New York City. But aside from the four main women, the iconic HBO show had its fair share of guest stars. For some, they were already famous. For others, however, their fame came post-“Satc.” While you wait for the next season of “Younger” (from “Sex and the City” creator Darren Star) and for Sjp’s upcoming show “Divorce” to hit HBO, get your fix by taking this trip down memory lane. Here are 31 famous actors you totally forgot (or could never forget because you love the show so much) guest-starred on “Sex and the City.” Bradley CooperWhen a deeply upset Carrie goes out for a night on the town »

26 September 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cynthia Nixon said she wants a third Sex and the City film.

The actress, who plays lawyer Miranda in the show and movie spinoffs, said she was really proud of the series and would definitely be up for another film.

"I'd absolutely do another Sex and the City movie - if Michael Patrick King wanted to write it and Sarah Jessica Parker wanted to do it. I'm very proud of it," she told Woman Magazine:

The actress starred alongside Parker, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis on the HBO series from 1998 until 2004.

Nixon can next be seen as a mother battling cancer in kickstarter-funded movie James White, where she will star opposite Girls actor Christopher Abbott.

The film will get a limited release on November 13 in the Us.

Kim Cattrall Does Not Have Kids, but She Still Considers Herself a Mother

15 September 2015 2:14 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hold the cosmopolitans.  Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall asserts that she is a mother, despite never having birthed a child. The actress, who famously portrayed the sexy, single and purposefully childless Samantha on the HBO hit series, is raising eyebrows for the statements she made to BBC Radio in which she also raised the question as to what exactly defines motherhood. "I am a parent. I have actors and actresses that I mentor. I have nieces and nephews that I am very close to," Cattrall explained. "There is a way to become a mother in this day and age that doesn't include your name on the child's birth certificate."  Cattrall, 59, whose acting career began as soon »

'Lavalantula 2' Wants to Reunite 'Police Academy' Cast Again

28 July 2015 9:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few days after Lavalantula debuted on Syfy this weekend, the cable network has given the green light for a sequel, entitled 2 Lava 2 Lantula. The title is a reference to Universal Pictures' 2003 sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious, but don't hold your breath for high-octane racing action in 2 Lava 2 Lantula. Syfy will release 2 Lava 2 Lantula as a 2016 summer movie, but no cast members or filmmakers have been confirmed quite yet.

Police Academy stars Steve Guttenberg, Leslie Easterbrook, Marion Ramsey and Michael Winslow reunited to star in Lavalantula, and the hope is to bring them all back. The story follows a "washed up 90s action hero actor" played by Steve Guttenberg, who joins forces with Leslie Easterbrook and Michael Winslow's characters to stop a monstrous swarm of bloodthirsty lava-breathing tarantulas who burn their victims alive. The supporting cast includes Nia Peeples, Danny Woodburn, Ralph Garman, Marion Ramsey, Jon Mack, D.J. Pierce and Patrick Renna. »

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

Why Dwayne Johnson is asking for 'Big Trouble' with his Carpenter remake

2 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I confess that my first reaction to this news was caught on film and you can now see it in photo form attached to this story. Here's the thing: I am on record as saying that I consider Dwayne Johnson a bit of a natural resource. I don't think the movies he makes are always worthy of his charisma and his genuine talent, but i think he's more than proven himself capable. I am hopeful when he announces a project that it'll be something that is as good as he is. I am also on record as saying that it's exhausting to get worked up about every single remake or sequel or reboot or whatever at this point. The industry has so clearly embraced that as an omnipresent business plan that it is wasted energy. It takes a lot to shake that loose from me now, but maybe this one »

Dwayne Johnson producing and starring in a remake of Big Trouble in Little China

2 June 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the box office success of his latest disaster movie San Andreas, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is reportedly set to produce and star in a remake of 80s cult favourite Big Trouble in Little China.

The Wrap are reporting that Big Trouble in Little China is one of Johnson’s favourite movies and he will play the role of Jack Burton, made famous by Kurt Russell back in 1986. The film follows Jack, an all-American trucker, who gets caught in a supernatural showdown with the forces of evil while visiting a friend in San Fransico. The film was directed by John Carpenter and also featured Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun and James Hong. The film also rules.

The Big Trouble in Little China remake will be written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class) and will be produced by Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Johnson himself.

20th Century Fox have not confirmed this story yet, »

Dwayne Johnson to Star in Big Trouble in Little China Remake

2 June 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

"San Andreas" just hit theaters and became a massive hit, and now comes word that Dwayne Johnson has already picked his next project, which will be a remake of John Carpenter's cult classic "Big Trouble in Little China." Johnson is in talks to play Jack Burton, an all-American trucker who gets dragged into a centuries-old mystical battle in San Francisco's Chinatown. The script will be written by "X-Men: First Class" writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. The original 1986 film starred Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall, and only grossed $11 million at the domestic box office. But the film is considered a classic. »

The Rock & a hard place: Dwayne Johnson makes ‘Big Trouble In Little China’

1 June 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s been busy rescuing San Andreas from a rubble-strewn fate, but Dwayne Johnson‘s next possible tough guy role may see him facing unearthly terrors in more mystical territory.

1986’s Big Trouble In Little China is reportedly one of the former wrestler’s favourite films, and he’s keen to remake it with himself in the lead as affable trucker Jack Burton. Burton was played by Kurt Russell in John Carpenter‘s original effort and Kim Cattrall co-starred.

The source material is best-described as uncategorizable, following the workaday hero with a mouth as big as his fists as he got caught up in the underworld of San Francisco’s Chinatown, encountering many fantastical sights and battling an ancient sorceror and his elemental henchmen. It’s also one of those movies that underperformed before attaining cult status on video, so a risky venture for a big budget reboot.

The Rock To Lead "Little China" Remake

1 June 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is in negotiations to both star in and produce a remake of John Carpenter's 1986 cult classic "Big Trouble in Little China" at 20th Century Fox.

Johnson would play Jack Burton, an all-American trucker who gets dragged into a centuries-old mystical battle in San Francisco's Chinatown.

"X-Men: First Class" scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz will pen the project while Johnson and producing partners Dany and Hiram Garcia will produce. The trio pitched the remake to Fox as the original is one of Johnson's all time favorite films.

Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall starred in the original which, though a box-office failure, quickly became a cult classic and is often considered one of the most iconic of 1980s movies.

11 May 2015 11:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sarah Jessica Parker has hinted that a third ‘Sex and the City’ movie is in the pipeline.

The 50-year-old actress fuelled rumours that yet another spin-off film from the original HBO series is set to be made after posting a cryptic message on her Instagram account.

She wrote alongside an image of herself carrying a paper bag from department store Bloomingdales – which is known for being one of her character Carrie Bradshaw’s favourite shops – as onlookers took pictures: “Well. I guess the cat’s out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I’m under strict gag order until then. Xx, Sj”

The mysterious post follows months of speculation that Sarah and her co-stars Kristin Davis, 50, Kim Cattrall, 58, and Cynthia Nixon, 49, were set to return for a third instalment.

Sex and the City Reunion! Sarah Jessica Parker Attends Kristin Davis' Documentary Screening—See the Pic!

6 May 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There's nothing like having the support of your friends during a big event. That must have been how Kristin Davis felt when Sarah Jessica Parker attended a film screening of her new documentary Gardeners of Eden in New York City Tuesday. Both Sex and the City alums looked gorgeous posing together for the cameras, but we wish that Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon could have been there, too. Certainly with half of the women there it seems like it could be simple enough to get the other two for a full-blown reunion! Davis even told E! News exclusively that they are all interested! "I think we'd all like to do it again," Davis told E!'s Marc Malkin. "We want to do it!" Those comments »

Gracepoint; Sensitive Skin review – some remakes translate better than others

1 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Kim Cattrall is fantastic in the Canadian remake of the 10-year-old Hugo Blick dramedy, whereas David Tennant struggles to reprise Di Hardy for Us telly

You don’t come across big international remakes of UK dramas so often that you’d expect two of them to turn up on the same night – never mind a scheduling clash. Yet here we are at 10pm: Gracepoint, the American overhaul of Broadchurch, up against a revisiting of Sensitive Skin, the acclaimed Hugo Blick dramedy starring Joanna Lumley, which first aired 10 years ago.

In its Canadian remake (Sky Arts), it is Kim Cattrall who plays Davina, a successful fiftysomething with a long marriage, grownup son, vintage Jag and fear of losing her youth. Cattrall, in her first major TV role since Sex and the City, is not exactly a revelation – her portrayal of Samantha always exceeded the limits of the show’s scripts – but »
