Revisiting Clear And Present Danger: the best Jack Ryan film

30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

An intelligent, dense political thriller in the middle of summer? We visit Harrison Ford in Tom Clancy's Clear And Present Danger...

This article contains spoilers for, er, Clear And Present Danger.

How many times have you walked out of seeing a big summer blockbuster movie, and felt like you'd been treated like a grown-up? Christopher Nolan movies, whether you like them or not, treat you with that level of respect. But when it comes to major thrillers, there's generally something about them where you feel you've been shortchanged.

It's why it puzzles me that Clear And Present Danger doesn't get a lot more love. From the day I saw it for the first time back in 1994, and on every viewing since, I've really loved this film. I love that it isn't afraid of a dense plot, isn't afraid of putting a big movie star on the poster yet finds time for supporting characters, »

How many have you seen? 12 of Disney's worst straight-to-video sequels

14 March 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sequels and spinoffs are all the rage on the big screen these days, but the news that Disney is moving forward with a Frozen 2 still comes as something of a surprise considering the studio has been reticent to pump out theatrically-released follow-ups to its biggest hits - only The Three Caballeros, The Rescuers Down Under, Fantasia 2000 and Winnie the Pooh are part of the Disney Animated Canon.

However, throughout the '90s and '00s Disney had a lucrative side-business in direct-to-video sequels that were turned around quickly and cheaply and made the studio a fast buck. Many execs felt that these cheapened the originals and John Lasseter put the brakes on them, although the recent Tinker Bell films (branching out from Peter Pan) have their roots in this release model.

Digital Spy revisits 13 of Disney's most unnecessary straight-to-video sequels below:

'Friday the 13th' Special: What happened to the Final Girls?

13 March 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "Friday the 13th" franchise's crop of Final Girls are known for their keen survival instincts onscreen, but the careers of the actresses who played them? Not quite as impressive. When was the last time you heard the name "Amy Steel"? Dana Kimmell? Melanie Kinnaman? In celebration of Friday the 13th, here's our brief rundown of the post-"F13" careers of every Final Girl in the (original) franchise, from Adrienne King to Lexa Doig. "Friday the 13th" (1980) Adrienne King (Alice Hardy) After briefly reprising her role in the film's 1981 sequel, King became the victim of a stalker (the man ultimately pulled a gun on her). Shaken by the experience, she didn't return to acting until the 2010 low-budget horror/sci-fi film "Psychic Experiment." "Friday the 13th Part 2" (1981) Amy Steel (Ginny) Steel actually has two claims to fame in the horror genre, as she also starred in the 1986 pseudo-slasher "April Fool's Day. »

10 March 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There are three open slots in the Emmy race for Best Drama Series, which means things are looking up for CBS's "The Good Wife." The broadcast drama has an on-again, off-again track record with the TV academy, something of which creators Robert and Michelle King are well aware. "We would pay every voter $10 for a nomination," the Kings joke on the Paley Festival red carpet at the Dolby Theatre (watch below). "Ten dollars!" -Break- Christine Baranski: I've become very gracious losing Emmys for 'The Good Wife' "The Good Wife" is known for its impressive roster of guest stars, but who do the Kings hope will pop up next on the show? "We've gotten close to John Lithgow a couple of times," but the scheduling couldn't be worked out, they admit. Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and James Earl Jones round out their list.

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

11 of action cinema's great movie villain pairings

25 February 2015 8:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From early Bond to 21st century sci-fi, here's Ryan's pick of 11 unforgettable villain pairings from action cinema history...

You're generally lucky if a movie has one genuinely great villain in it, let alone two. This is probably because creating a villain takes great acting and writing - it's one thing to create a preening character who stomps around a story doing unpleasant things, but creating a villain who's three-dimensional, witty, scary and above all memorable requires considerable skill.

Every so often, a movie comes along which gives us not one, but two classic villains, with the personality of one complementing the other. A familiar dynamic was once laid out by Steven Spielberg: one is smart and eloquent , while the other is the tougher, more violent of the pair. It's a template that we've seen time and again in cinema, but it's only occasionally that both characters leap from the screen. »

Star Wars Rebels: Darth Vader returning for season finale

25 February 2015 12:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new Star Wars Rebels trailer has teased the return of James Earl Jones as Darth Vader in the season finale. See it here…

Those who have taken the time to invest in Star Wars Rebels - the Disney Xd animated series which bridges the gap between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope - have found plenty to enjoy.

Amongst other fan-pleasing moments, we’ve had a brief appearance from Obi-Wan, Anthony Daniels reprising C-3Po, the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando, and a cameo from James Earl Jones as Darth Vader way back in the premiere episode.

Now, it looks like the suited-up and currently evil Anakin Skywalker will be returning for the season finale entitled Fire Across The Galaxy. We’ve assumed this because he appears in the trailer, which you can see here…

Fire Across The Galaxy premieres in America on Monday the 2nd of March. »

Star Wars: Return of the Legends

13 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Writing couple paragraphs of last week’s S7AR Wars about a fan-restored Blu-Ray quality version of the original trilogy, I considered becoming a collector of various “despecialized” cuts of the original trilogy I learned were floating around the internet.

Then, I got an e-mail from El Mayimbe with some images and info that made me think I might not have to dig through the annals of the internet to get a Blu Ray copy of the un-Special Star Wars trilogy. Maybe I don’t have to turn to the likes of internet smugglers and pirates to get the original Original Trilogy fix.

Disclaimer - Gonna show you these, but then talk about how they aren’t real. Ready?

Got sent these mockups of the original trilogy Blu Rays with the “Legends” banner from a designer who claimed to have made them at the request of Lucasfilm.

Anna Chlumsky Takes Lessons Learned on ‘My Girl’ to Broadway

13 February 2015 6:05 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When Veep premiered in 2012, most people were surprised (and excited) to see child star, Anna Chlumsky, all grown up and cursing up a storm on HBO. Three seasons later, the 34-year-old actress has been twice nominated for an Emmy for her role as Amy Brookheimer, the determined and sometimes ruthless Chief of Staff to Vice President Selina Meyer.

Having already marked her territory in both film and TV, Chlumsky is taking on Broadway with her debut in You Can’t Take It with You, a slapstick play that has her testing her ability to keep a straight face.

Q&A: How John Lithgow Embraced His Age and Scored the Role of His Career

Despite all the recent success, Chlumsky still hasn’t forgotten the little things she’s learned along the way, such as the acting tricks Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd, her then-adult co-stars, taught her on the set of My Girl.

Watch George Lucas Reveal 11 People Who Could Have Played Darth Vader In Hilarious Video

9 February 2015 8:07 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This may come as a shock, but James Earl Jones was not the first person to audition for the role of Darth Vader in Star Wars, nor was he George Lucas. first choice. We know, that.s pretty much blasphemy at this point, but this comes from the mouth of Lucas himself. During a recent ceremony honoring James Earl Jones, the father of Star Wars made a special appearance to reveal the 11 other names he considered for Vader -- and while he may be joking at Jones' expense, the video is definitely worth a watch just for the clever cameos that are sprinkled throughout: This clip screened at The Musical Celebration Of Broadway, which this year was honoring James Earl Jones and his career. He.s currently celebrating his production You Can.t Take It With You, which will be on Broadway until February 22, if you care to get tickets. »

3 Major Star Wars Characters Could Appear in Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Premiere

6 February 2015 1:43 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Star Wars Rebels hasn't skimped on bringing in classic and fan-favorte characters into the show, and new reports have come in that the second season premiere will feature Three returning characters.  Come inside to find out who! 

One of the things I've enjoyed most about Star Wars Rebels, is just how deftly they've handled cameos for other Star Wars characters.  Where they could easliy feel forced into the show to make fans excited, the showrunners have done an excellent job in making everything flow naturally and apart of the overall story.  It's nicely done, so it's always great to hear about More classic characters returning.  We already know that Lando will be back for more, but our friends at MakingStarWars broke the news that 3 classic characters will pop up in the show's second season premiere.  

I overheard exactly who was in the opening of Star Wars Rebels Season II by someone from Lucasfilm. »
