Remember Alex Cox's 80's cult-classic sci-fi comedy 'Repo Man'? You know the one, the low-budget and extremely bizarre flick that starred Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton (and not to be confused with the recent 'Repo Men', starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker). Well 25 years later and Cox is back with the 'unofficial non-sequel' 'Repo Chick'. It debuted at the Venice Film Festival in September 2009 and now will finally hit Us DVD shelves as well as screen in both New York and La next January. Check out the full synopsis and screening dates below. Jaclyn Jonet (below) stars as 'Repo Chick' and she's joined by Miguel Sandoval, Rosanna Arquette, Chloe Webb, Del Zamora, Alex Feldman, Xander Berkeley, Robert Beltran and Karen Black! »
Now we really are scraping the bottom of the remake barrel with news that Universal and the Dino De Laurentiis Co. are looking to kickstart a new franchise based on one of Stephen King’s lesser works Firestarter. You may remember the original film, released in 1984, starred a cherubic Drew Barrymore as the pyrokinetic poppet whom a government agency were hunting to harness her powers.
“We see this as a unique, character-driven thriller with a supernatural edge, based on a timeless concept and enhanced by recent visual effects advances.”
So translate this as ‘people with superpowers are cool and we can blow stuff up real good these days.’
Writer Mark L Smith (Vacancy, The Hole) is working on the script with the apparent intention of making it edgier this time around. »

Yeah kids, right on the heels of us telling you about the Firestarter remake and franchise plans, now we have word on a Maximum Overdrive remake. According to Variety Dino De Laurentis Co. is on the job and ready.
Do y'all remember the original with the machines going crazy when the comet passed by and especially the big truck with the Green Goblin head on the grill? Do you remember Emilio Estevez aka Charlie Sheen's brother? I have to say this was a fun piece of Stephen King cheese to watch with an even better soundtrack by Acdc!
In a continuation of Hollywood's attempt to literally remake everything under the sun, Stephen King's 1986 cult classic Maximum Overdrive is next on the reboot chopping block. The film, based on the short story of the same name, was King's one and only directorial attempt to bring his characters or "automobiles" in this case to life...
According to our friends at Variety, Dino De Laurentiis and company will be tackling the remake in an effort to capture the same "cult like" film that the original was able to capture so well. No solid date for production on this film has been given.
Maximum Overdrive is an absurd tale about a radiation storm that somehow animates machines across the world, causing them to turn on their makers. The film focuses on a group of survivors held captive at the Dixie Boy Diner by a group of bad-tempered semis. Led by Emilio Estevez, »

Stephen King may be a legendary horror writer, but sadly his directorial efforts never reached that kind of apex. His one and only ever directing gig was 'Maximum Overdrive', his own adaption of his short story 'Trucks', back in 1986. The now cult horror starred Emilio Estevez dodging the hellish advances of technology as a barrage of electrical appliances attacked - including a bunch of trucks, lawnmowers and even a vending machine. Pat Hingle ('Batman'), Laura Harrington and Lisa Simpson herself Yeardley Smith starred also. News is that the production company Dino De Laurentiis is prepping a remake which doesn't actually make me shudder. Technologies a huge part of our lives and has been effectly covered in horror in the past few years with features such as 'Pulse' so it could be interesting. Or could stink up the place! »
To celebrate Lionsgate’s UK release of The Expendables on DVD and Blu-ray on December 13th, we here at Blogomatic3000 thought we’d take a look at our favourite team-ups in movie history…
13) Bubba Ho-Tep
Who else but Phantasm director Don Coscarelli could bring you a tale that sees an elderly Elvis team up with JFK to to battle an evil Egyptian mummy who has chosen their East Texas rest home as his hunting grounds. Based on the award-winning short story by Joe R. Lansdale, Bubba Ho-Tep is a movie that needs to be seen to be believed, and is possibly Bruce Campbell’s greatest performance.
12) Dead Heat
What says team-up more than a cop teaming up with his dead partner to take down zombie criminals? That’s the basic plot of Dead Heat, which follows cops Roger Mortis and Doug Bigelow as they try and solve a case that »
Hitting movie theaters this weekend:
Movie of the Week
The Plot: An American tourist (Depp) finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent (Jolie) uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal.
The Buzz: I’m having a hard time answering the following question: who would I rather spend a day with, Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie? Sure, change the “day” to “night” and the situation would be simplified by hormonal trappings — but in all seriousness, these are two of the most alluring, charismatic, iconic “beautiful people” working in Hollywood today. Depp is mystifyingly cool, and a brilliant actor. I feel Jolie is about twelve steps below Depp in acting prowess, »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola in the third of a five-part feature... read parts one and two.
“The success of The Godfather  went to my head like a rush of perfume. I thought I couldn’t do anything wrong,” admitted Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola who decided to produce a $23 million romantic fantasy. “One from the Heart  suffered from the perception of me as some wild, egomaniac Donald Trump type of guy, and once they think about you that way, it’s just so many months before you’re brought down.” A middle class couple (Frederic Forrest and Teri Garr) split up and head off to Las Vegas where they encounter fanciful lovers. “I wanted to take a fable-like story and treat it almost the way [Walt] Disney would approach a story in his animated films,” explained the filmmaker. “If we had made the movie in Las Vegas, »
Canales, who declined to give specifics about his future professional plans, leaves the Barcelona-based company after 13 years, including the launch of the sales division in 1999.
“I am very grateful to Julio and Carlos Fernandez for the great opportunity they have given me all these years and for the confidence they have always shown in me. I especially value their great international film business vision,” Canales said.
Canales’ departure comes after Filmax filed for protection from creditors in March, but the company has racked up sales in the past few months on Spanish-language titles Agnosia, Kidnapped, Rec Genesis and Rec Apocolypse. »
London – A couple of idiots trying to outdo rock band U2, a 3D animated young barbarian with low self-esteem and a movie about four girls, three days, two cities and one chance are three titles from European shores vying for attention amid the hustle and bustle of this year's American Film Market.
The duo trying to outdo U2 are self-proclaimed idiots in Killing Bono, a movie that sees rising stars Ben Barnes and Robert Sheehan as hapless brothers Neil and Ivan McCormick who set up a band in Dublin, Ireland in the late 1970s.
Sadly for them, so did their classmates and rivals, who go on to become the global phenomenon U2. Based on a true story and grounded in Neil McCormack's book of the same name Stateside, the screenplay is written by British comedy writing royalty Dick Clement & Ian La Frenais alongside Simon Maxell. Nick Hamm directs.
Oh God. Marie Claire has produced this heinous damage-control (?!) video about Project Runway’s season 8 winner, Wretchin’ Gretchen Jones. A moment ago I couldn’t decide if I should protect you, fellow Season 8 Support Group members, or fulfill my inherent duty as a blogger to post one of the most obnoxious clips I’ve ever seen. Well, I got over it! Who says Halloween is over? Kick off your weekend right with this complete horror show….
She once dated Emilio Estevez? Just Kidding? What the hell is happening here???

As Vampires Suck arrives in the UK, spare a thought for the spoof movies that time is in danger of forgetting…
This week, Vampires Suck arrives in the UK, the latest in a line of spoof movies from the creators of the likes of Epic Movie, Date Movie and Meet The Spartans. The spoof, however, is edging towards being something of a forgotten art, too often substituting visual references for anything that genuinely offers some lampooning.
It's with this in mind that we uncovered a collection of spoof movies that still, for some reason, don't get the love they deserve. So, without further ado...
The daddy of forgotten spoof movies, Top Secret is the film that the Zucker Brothers and Jim Abrahams made between Airplane! and The Naked Gun, and it's arguably the equal of both.
Providing a first film role for Val Kilmer, it's a desperately funny spoof of war movies, »
DJ Haza talks Top Gun in more "Frustrated Ramblings Of An Aspiring Filmmaker"...
Stinger: “Don't screw around with me Maverick. You're a hell of an instinctive pilot. Maybe too good. I'd like to bust your butt but I can't. I got another problem here. I gotta send somebody from this squadron to Miramar. I gotta do something here, I still can't believe it. I gotta give you your dream shot! I'm gonna send you up against the best. You two characters are going to Top Gun.”
And so it began. Maverick and Goose got their shot at Top Gun – the U.S. Navy aviation training school where the best fighter pilots in the Navy get to become the best of the best. What a film. What a soundtrack. Top Gun = Top Film. Fact. However, the film ran grossly over budget, over time and it’s director Tony Scott was fired officially three times. »
On Sept. 20, the original cast of the John Hughes cult classic "The Breakfast Club" met for the first time in 25 years to celebrate Hughes at an event sponsored by the NY Film Society at Lincoln Center. After a screening of the movie, the cast shared memories of filming and subsequent success of the film during a panel moderated by director/comedian Kevin Smith.
Ally Sheedy calls the movie "timeless" and Anthony Michael Hall says, " It's a reminder of where we started." Hall also cracks that Sheedy used her own dandruff in the movie. We're disappointed not to see Emilio Estevez back as well.
Watch the video above for a short clip of the panel, then visit the Epix website to watch a longer video. And remember -- "We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all."

Trevor Donovan came in last season as the dashing new tennis player/surfer dude, Teddy Montgomery, who quickly caught the gals' eyes and the guys' glares on The CW's "90210."
Since then, his character has shown some deeper revelations as his relationship to his famous dad (played by Ryan O'Neal) revealed itself to be a tumultuous one and he grew close to Silver (Jessica Stroup) over their mothers' battles with cancer. This season, the revelations get even deeper as an injury forces Teddy to hang up his racket and he begins a storyline revealing he's gay.
Donovan has shown a very public dedication to playing the storyline in a way that honors the gay experience. And we have been pretty thrilled with the way it has been unfolding so far.
Donovan, 31, a former model who daytime soap viewers will remember from his stint on "Days of Our Lives," may be hiding »
Charlie Sheen has a new role: father of the bride. The Two and a Half Men star beamed and snapped photos as his daughter, Cassandra Estevez, exchanged vows with childhood sweetheart Casey Huffman at Santa Barbara's Bacara Resort and Spa on Sept. 25. "He was clearly very proud of her," says wedding planner Jill La Fleur of La Fleur Weddings & Events, who created the lavish day inspired by a mix of nature and old Hollywood glamour. "He had a big smile on his face." The bride, 25, who met Huffman in junior high, walked down the aisle with her dad to the »

On Monday, September 20, The Paris Theater in New York City filled to standing-room only for a 25th-anniversary screening of the seminal teen classic 'The Breakfast Club.' The event, organized by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, celebrated not just the 1985 hit, but the life of writer-director John Hughes, who passed away last August at the age of 59.
After the screening, the audience was treated to a special 90-minute Q&A with four of its stars: Judd Nelson ("Bender"), Anthony Michael Hall ("Brian"), Molly Ringwald ("Claire") and Ally Sheedy ("Allison"). Notably absent was the other main cast member, Emilio Estevez, who Ringwald joked was "the Greta Garbo of the Brat Pack -- he just wants to be left alone." The night was moderated by noted Hughes fan Kevin Smith, who declared, "I saw this movie when I was 14 years old, and from that moment on, »

Emilio Estevez has created a movie about American spirituality in "The Way". He reluctantly travelled to Spain with his father to make the movie about faith, hope and walking - all part of the American way of overcoming hard times. Estevez's movie tells the tale of four people walking the Camino de Santiago (the Way of St James) through Spain. “Americans are searching for something,” Estevez said, speaking to The Catholic Register. “The Camino serves as the ultimate metaphor for life.” Martin Sheen had had the idea for this movie seven years ago. Following a family reunion in Ireland Sheen had travelled to Spain to take part in the Camino, however his schedule on "The West Wing" had meant that his trip was cut short. Sheen insisted that his son had to make a movie about the trail. Estevez said no but began reading books like Jack Hitt’s “Off »
Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson – aka the brain, the princess, the basket case and the criminal – all came together for a celebratory screening of the cult classic, hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
Notably absent from the group was movie star Emilio Estevez who reportedly couldn’t attend due to prior work commitments in Canada.
A firm favourite of Hughes, Ringwald starred in more than a few coming of age stories by the acclaimed director, such as Sixteen Candles, »
