Send the Marine!
Cannes has a great tradition of introducing new sex symbols to the world. Following in the dainty footsteps of Bardot, Deneuve and Paradis comes Marine Vacth (as in "pact"), whose performance in François Ozon's Jeune et Jolie had everyone asking, "Who's that girl?" In the film, she plays a gamine, bourgeois 17-year-old who suddenly takes up prostitution. Vacth followed Kate Moss as the face of Ysl perfume La Parisienne having been discovered in a branch of H&M when she was 15. When she did her first undressed shoot, her lorry-driver father sued the magazine and won. In her first-ever English interview, she told me: "My parents now leave me to do what I want. They haven't seen this film yet. But there's nothing they can do about it now. »

Happy birthday, Willie Nelson! The 80-year-old country music legend and Farm Aid cocreator has appeared in over 30 films, but he just made a pitch—via Team Coco—to play the greatest wizard there ever was (not including Tim Curry in The Worst Witch): Gandalf the Great. In his marijuana-induced haze, Nelson reached out to director Peter Jackson asking to don the wizard cape and hat for The Hobbit. The second installment in Jackson's trilogy is due out December 13, so there's still time for the director to make a few casting additions if Nelson's plea sways him. Maybe Ian McKellen's character needs an older, wilder brother? Check out Nelson's minute-long, pot-friendly pitch. It brings new meaning to the word...

Artist Jeff Victor has created another great piece of movie character evolution art. This time he focuses on one character from the Star Wars universe... Luke Skywalker. It shows us the various stages of character development that he went through in the original trilogy that took him from a whiney boy to a whiney badass. Here's a note from the artist...
This piece will debut at Gallery Nucleus' May 4th Star Wars art gallery. If you live in La, I hope you'll come check it out! This piece is unique, as it's the first Evolution I did that I painted traditionally, not digitally.
The piece turned out really cool! To see the artist's previous evolutions of Johnny Depp Click Here, for Natalie Portman Click Here, for Tom Hanks Click Here, for Stanely Kubrick Click Here, for Charlize Theron Click Here, for Jim Carrey Click Here, for Gary Oldman Click Here, »

What do Left Behind, Little Nicky, Mister Frost, and Hellboy all have in common? They all feature the devil in either a starring or cameo role. Satan or Lucifer has long been a fascinating figure ever since John Milton’s Paradise Lost immortalized him. Not surprising in a bit of homage Al Pacino as Satan in The Devil’s Advocate call himself “John Milton.” But treatments of the devil have varied greatly. In The Devil Rides Out (1968), Christopher Lee faces off against a Satan cult but Satan himself only appears for a few brief moments.
Tim Curry’s devil in Legend, on the other hand, takes center stage in perhaps the wildest interpretation yet with his devil sporting huge cloven hooves and horns. But in the 1990s, the devil became more and more cynical and laid back. Gabriel Byrne in the End of Days plays him as a normal man »
Earth Day may have been on Monday, but this entire week schools and communities around the country have been celebrating the environment with various events and rallies. If you want to tie in your weekend entertainment with the environment, check out these three films, each of which provides an ecological message for preschoolers, kids and teens alike. After seeing these green movies, turn off the TV and computer and head outside to help the environment! Rated G Pick: "FernGully: The Last Rainforest" (1992, 76 minutes) Netflix Amazon Instant iTunes Kids Will Love: Even though the animation is a bit dated, young kids will get caught up in this fantasy adventure about a young fairy who discovers that humans are cutting down all of the trees of her magical rainforest, so she shrinks a boy and teaches him about preserving their shared land. Magic and friendship (with a dash of romance) make for an exciting (and eco-friendly) tale. »

In honor of Earth Day we are bringing back a whole bunch of childhood memories with this clip from FernGully: The Last Rainforest, the ultimate Earth-loving flick. While it definitely doesn't have the special effects of its similar counterpart Avatar, it does have some more-than fabulous songs conveying extremely important environmental messages in the most amazing way possible. So please enjoy this "Toxic Love" tribute - no, we don't think Hexxus has got any less terrifying over the years - and then get the slightly less scary Tim Curry as he records the song.

The world's most notable anthropomorphic fruit is continuing to make it big on TV. The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange, Cartoon Network's TV adaptation of Dane Boedigheimer's mind-bogglingly popular web series, will return for a second season, which will debut at 7:30 Est on May 16th. The first TV season of Annoying Orange averaged close to two million views an episode, making it one of the most popular cable programs in its timeslot. It was particularly popular with boys ages 6-14, which is not a surprise given the young age of its YouTube audience. Season two will once against center around the titular orange, voiced by Boedigheimer, and will undoubtedly feature many, many fruit puns. Popular YouTubers Toby Turner and iJustine will return as members of the main cast, as will noted voice actors such as Jim Cummings and Tom Kenny. Season one featured many recurring and guest stars, »

Dr. Frank-n-Furter turns 21 today (by which we mean 67) and to celebrate everyone’s favorite transvestite and his day of birth, we feel it’s only fair to remind you (or enlighten you) of another most amazing Tim Curry classic ever: The Worst Witch. Seriously. While his 'Time Warp' Rocky Horror antics will impress/ shock generations to come, we still feel that this Curry gem wins the most unbelievable, what-on-earth-were-the-writers-thinking-but-we-love-them-so-much-for-it award.
For those of you who have not seen this out-of-this world, mesh of awesomeness (um, what were you doing with your childhood?) here is a clip to get you started. And, for those of you who have, you’re very welcome. Because, yes, somewhere a midst the pure fantastic-ness of the movie Curry does indeed break down into an obscure (but incredible), rainbow coat and bat bow-tie filled, Halloween music video rendition. You may have to wait a few hours »

Tom Cruise does a lost more in his movies than just flash his million-dollar smile and have nervous breakdowns in locker rooms with Cuba Gooding Jr., you know. Over the course of his nearly 40 years in movies, Cruise has taken on a wide variety of formidable enemies, whether they be made of flesh and blood or something else. Like any true movie hero, the man just can't get away from conflict.
In honor of the release of "Oblivion," which has Cruise taking on yet another new opponent, we've created an infographic that illustrates just how much fightin' Tom has done over the years — and who (or what) has been on the receiving end of his furious wrath.

Warning: Calling the following piece an "Idiot's Guide" is a bit of a misnomer. You may or may not be aware of what happens in the "Scary Movie" movies, but there's no way you will emerge from reading this a smarter person overall. I just watched all four "Scary Movie" movies consecutively and my brain is currently curled up in a ball shivering in a far corner of my skull, asking what it did to deserve that.
That said, it is true that you will know more about the "Scary Movie" franchise — a Lot more — after having read this piece. We here at NextMovie would hate to see you go into "Scary Movie 5" without having a lick of knowledge about the first four movies. Imagine the embarrassment in front of your friends! "Ugh, you didn't know that The Oracle, played by Queen Latifah in a spoof of 'The Matrix, »

It is, admittedly, strange to criticize a movie adaptation of a well-worn classic for being too faithful. Some movies, of course, are too stuck on the books or plays they’re adapting, unable to break free from the tethers of the previously written word. But most often, we want our movie versions of beloved stories to be very much like those stories. Otherwise, what’s the point? Sometimes, however, the more faithful an adaptation is, the less successful it is as a movie. We have to remember that a book and a movie may tell the same story, but they can never tell it the same way. This point got lost in the shuffle during the Harry Potter franchise, but it’s pertinent: whatever experience you had reading those books, »

Yarr, mateys! We caught you with yer pants down, didn’t we? Yes, just because your pirate crew took an unexpected vacation last week doesn’t mean we’re not back this week with cannons at the ready! Today, Josh, Mike, and Gabe head back to the high seas, but not with the Pirates of the Caribbean! No, this week, we join Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and more of the Muppets with the 1996 film Muppet Treasure Island! And prepare to be shocked–your fearsome Captain is the most positive one of all! How could Mike and Gabe not love the goofiness onboard the Hispaniola? How could the silly humor and Tim Curry’s over-the-top performance as Long John Silver not be enough for them? Find out on the new show!

In Conor McMahon’s Stitches, acclaimed British comedian Ross Noble plays Stitches Grindle, a hard-drinking mess of a clown whose destructive ways catch up with him at young Tom’s birthday party – leading to his accidental, violent death.
Six years later, Stitches returns from the dead to take revenge on the brats who put him six feet under… turning the tables on them as only a clown can.
In honor of Stitches hitting Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, April 2nd, we’ve decided to take a look back at cinema’s killer clowns through the years, and picked out a handful of our absolute favorites:
6) The Trio, Clownhouse (1989)
A trio of mental patients murder circus clowns, taking their guises to torment a young boy and his brothers (one played by a young Sam Rockwell) during a long night alone in their family home. A genuinely unsettling tale that delves deep »

"Psych" offered up an absolutely wonderful homage to the movie "Clue" for its 100th episode, complete with a cornucopia of guest stars that star Tim Omundson says was certainly the greatest gathering of guest stars in one episode.
We can hardly choose our favorite "Clue" reference. The singing telegram girl was awesome, the "Clue"-themed "Psych" credits were great and Shawn running around like Wadsworth the butler was definitely amazing.
But really, the best had to be the Madeline Kahn shout-outs. Christopher Lloyd's character name was "Martin Kahn" and Lesley Ann Warren did the "flames ... flames ... on the side of my face" bit, plus the episode was dedicated to her memory. Kahn was tragically taken way too early, when she passed away in 1999 of ovarian cancer at the age of 57.
The "Back to the Future" reference was a lot of fun too ("Great Scott!") and the collection of weapons »
You may have heard by now that "Psych" has a star-studded 100th episode, which pays homage to the 1985 cult classic "Clue." Viewers will be able to vote for the ending depending on who they think "did it."
We've teased for you a couple treats, like a Madeline Kahn shout-out, and a collection of weapons that includes an acetylene torch and a paintball gun. Now check out this exclusive sneak peek clip, where Shawn (James Roday) channels his best Wadsworth the butler. -- plus, we've got more "Psych" Season 7 photos for you to feast your eyes on.
Speaking of Wadsworth -- Tim Curry is not on the guest-star list for "100 Clues," since he has already been in the "Psych"-verse as Nigel St. Nigel, judge on "American Duos." But we're still keeping our fingers crossed for a cameo, a la Ray Wise in the "Twin Peaks" episode "Dual Spires."

Eva Mendes is lost in thought, staring into the face of the devil. “Hmmm … Interesting,” she mutters, twirling a painted wooden Satan on a stick that caught her eye while browsing the macabre wares at Obscura Antiques & Oddities in the East Village, her favorite home-décor store. What’s so interesting? “Sorry!” she says, her trance broken. “It’s a private moment.”Mendes hasn’t sold her soul—she’d just been thinking of her “favorite devil of all time,” Tim Curry in 1985’s Legend—but she knows that, right now at least, it looks like Hollywood owns it. She says she’s “embarrassed” by the black SUV that brought her here, and “self-conscious” about being so conspicuous a presence among Obscura’s vampiric clientele in her bright-tangerine dress and seventies-glam smoky eyes. “The makeup and the outfit are for work,” she explains. Today’s work seems to include courting the »

The cheese runs thick in this on purpose 80s throwback direct from Hungary and starring none other than Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show It) as the title character. Add a little Lance Hendrickson (Pumpkinhead Near Dark Alien 3) Police Academys Michael Winslow and horror icon Brad Dourif and weve got an absolute quorum of horror movie awesomeness. Im not clear when this film will release in the U.S. although IMDb does note a Hungarian release May 9 2013. In the meantime we can feast on the latest tidbits from this campy and gory film right here. »
