Okay, so don’t worry. There is not a Back To The Future Part IV, but there is a new very well-made fan trailer that uses elements of old commercials, movies and other bits an pieces to create a faux trailer for a potential fourth movie… and it’s not half bad.
The trailer was created by the folks at Smasher over on You Tube, with the video having over 1 million plays in under a week.
The post It’s time to go back… Back To The Future Part IV has a trailer appeared first on The Hollywood News. »

The fan-made Back to the Future 4 trailer is setting the Internet on fire. Fans of Back to the Future have been wondering about a possible addition to the franchise for over 25 years and a new movie does not seem to be possible at this time. A Back to the Future Broadway musical has been in the works since 2004 and was just recently postponed, but that's not exactly what most fans are looking for, is it?. What fans are looking for is exactly what this fan-made trailer delivers.
The Back to the Future 4 fan-made trailer uses footage from Michael j. Fox and Christopher Lloyd reprising their iconic roles of Marty McFly and Doc Brown over the past 10 years. Footage from commercials including Toyota, Lego Dimensions, Garbarino, and Jimmy Kimmel Live are creatively edited together in a cohesive manner that almost feels like the real thing. And as the video views continue »
Talk about a blast from the past, or is it the future?
A recent fan-made trailer for Back to the Future: Part IV is starting to gain some traction on YouTube and there is a good reason why: It's really well put together, hitting the sweet nostalgia spot just right.
The video, posted last week by Smasher, already has nearly one million views.
There have been other fan trailers cut using the same source material, but this »

In my new series entitled “Movies I can’t believe are real” I’ll be taking a look at movies I’ve seen (and you’ve seen) that make you think to yourself “how in the world did any executive in the entire world Ok this to actually become a real film to be screened in theaters around the country?” The first movie we’re going to take a look at is 1987’s Walk Like a Man which starred Howie Mandel and Christopher Lloyd. Here’s the synopsis As a baby, Bobo gets separated from his family during a camping trip. After being raised by wild

Variety reports that the sci-fi star crossover of our dreams is finally happening—albeit not in the way we might have expected when we were mashing our Star Trek and Back To The Future action figures together when we were kids. Christopher Lloyd has signed on for William Shatner’s romantic comedy Senior Moment, playing a buddy of Shatner’s hotshot former test pilot who gets busted by a program designed to get “dangerous” senior drivers off the road. (We can only hope that Lloyd’s test to keep his license doesn’t include the dreaded question, “What does a yellow light mean?”)
The former Taxi star has been keeping busy in recent years, with appearances in everything from The Big Bang Theory to The Simpsons. In film, he just appeared in Morgan Freeman’s “old dudes partying” flick Going In Style, and as a suspected murderer in last year »

Who doesn't love Back To The Future? While Michael J. Fox is fun, and the script tight, it's really Christopher Lloyd's eccentric performance that elevates the film to classic. And, honestly, he's pretty much good in everything - stealing scenes as the stoner in Taxi and even showing real pathos for a nothing villain role in Santa Buddies (a movie, yes, I saw). So...

The film sees Shatner as “a retired Top Gun Navy pilot who used to test aircraft for Nasa. After speeding around town in his vintage convertible hot rod with his best friend (played by Lloyd) in tow, he gets caught in a major crackdown to get dangerous senior drivers off the road, resulting in his car being impounded and his license revoked.”

On 22 April, the incomparable Jack Nicholson will reach 80.

We are giving three lucky winners a pair of tickets to a BFI Southbank screening of the film between 20 and 24 April 2017
Nicholson’s unforgettable performance as the ingenious, heroic free spirit Rp ‘Mac’ McMurphy, who leads an uprising in the men’s ward of a mental hospital run by callous Nurse Rached (Louise Fletcher), won him his first Best Actor Oscar®.
Adapted from Ken Kesey’s best-selling 1962 novel, directed by Miloš Forman (Amadeus, Man on the Moon) and produced by Saul Zaentz (Amadeus, The English Patient) and Michael Douglas (his first producer role), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was only the second film ever to »

After a successful first weekend at the box office, The Boss Baby, an animated comedy from DreamWorks Animation, had no trouble repeating at the box office. The hit movie went up against Warner Bros.' comedy remake Going in Style, Sony's animated adventure Smurfs: The Lost Village and PureFlix's faith-based drama The Case For Christ. None of these new releases stood a chance, with The Boss Baby repeating atop the box office with $26.3 million, followed closely by Disney's blockbuster Beauty and the Beast with $25 million.
Box Office Mojo reports that Smurfs: The Lost Village, Sony's new fully animated movie in the beloved franchise, opened in 3,610 theaters, debuting in third place with $14 million for a meager $3,882 per-screen average. Going in Style debuted in 3,061 theaters in fourth place with $12.5 million with a $4,084 per-screen average, while The Case for Christ opened in 10th place with $3.9 million.

Going in Style, 2017.
Directed by Zach Braff
Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, three lifelong pals risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.
Following up his previous directorial efforts, Zach Braff moves away completely from his indie offbeat routes to deliver an entertaining but by the numbers Oap heist comedy. Joe (Caine), Willie (Freeman) and Al (Arkin) are a trio of friends who spent 30+ years working for a steel manufacturer. Now their days are filled with trips to the local diner, estimating how many years they have left to live and worrying about money. After their pension is frozen and Joe witnesses a bank robbery, the trio set out to »

If Hollywood is really so keen on remaking 1979 crime comedy/drama Going in Style, then it’s easy to consider this new version to be something of a best-case scenario, at least in terms of its casting. While the original united George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg as three senior citizens who decide to stage a bank robbery, the 2017 edition brings out three Academy Award-winning legends in Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin. But a film cannot live or die solely by the stars leading the charge, can it?
Going in Style certainly puts that question to the test. The three leading men bring their decades of experience to the screen with little effort, elevating the material with every second that each of them appears onscreen. Caine is essentially our protagonist here as Joe, the character who’s inspired to recoup his lost pension by robbing the bank where his money is held. »

Chicago – In 1979, there was a beautifully understated film called “Going in Style,” taking on the issues of aging, loneliness and the forgotten senior citizens in society. Those issues have not altered in our modern society, but you wouldn’t be able to tell that with the 2017 remake of “Going in Style.”
The “oldsters” in this redux are Michael Caine, Alan Arkin and Morgan Freeman (who seems to be closing his career by making these “last act” movies), as opposed to George Burns, Lee Strasberg and Art Carney in the original. The new crew can’t hold a candle to the old, not because of any acting chops, but because of the situation that screenwriter Theodore Melfi and director Zach Braff puts them in. Instead of an exploration of aging in America – filtered through three old guys robbing a bank – this is just another superhero movie, where the crew knows more than anyone, »

Hollywood veterans Sir Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin unite for this modern remake of the classic 1970s movie Going In Style, a fairly generic though sometimes sweet tale of a trio of pensioners who decide to rob a bank to bump up their pensions.
Going In Style review
Caine plays the central character of Joe, a seventy-something former factory worker who is living with his daughter and granddaughter in present day Brooklyn. We’re introduced to the character in his local bank, the Oap seemingly having a few money worries after defaulting on his mortgage payments. Joe is met with dead ends and personal mocking from his bank manager – a devilish Josh Pais – and finds himself caught up in an armed robbery, which plays out before his eyes. After reuniting with his lifelong friends and fellow factory workers Willie (Freeman) and »

Could you pull off a bank heist, with a little bit of training from the local bad element and a worthy cause behind you? Surely it can’t be that hard. Now ask that same question to 80-year-old you - the answer’s probably a bit different. And yet that’s the scenario Going In Style - Zach Braff’s remake of the 1979 of the same name - posits.
When Joe’s (Michael Caine) bank is robbed by masked criminals while he is there questioning why his mortgage payments have tripled, the seed of an idea is planted. Tired of being cheated out of their due by people and systems younger than them, he and best friends Willie (Morgan Freeman) and Al (Alan Arkin) decide they need to start getting even.
Back before Martin Brest was placed into forced retirement post-Gigli, he had a run of comedy hits including Midnight Run and Beverly Hills Cop. The first of these studio pictures, however, was a heist flick starring eighty-year old George Burns, seventy-year old Lee Strasberg, and fifty-year old Art Carney as clean-nosed roommates inexplicably looking to rob a bank. The fun was in the preparation—a rejuvenated excitement in their lives. The drama came via a long, winding road of tragedy afterwards. So of course Warner Bros. thought about how they could cull together a twenty-first century trio of octogenarians to do the exact same thing. Have them decide to rob their own bank for revenge and ride into the sunset for a senior citizen Hell or High Water.
Well, the result isn’t quite that successful so don’t start handicapping Going in Style for any Oscar nominations just yet. »

Actor Alan Arkin has had a successful third act in his career ever since he won an Oscar for his role in the Sundance favorite, Little Miss Sunshine. A few years later, he was nominated for another Oscar for Ben Affleck’s thriller Argo, again playing a comedic role in a more serious thriller.
For the upcoming remake of the 1979 crime-comedy Going in Style, Arkin is teamed with another popular Oscar-winning octogenarian in Michael Caine, and the slightly younger Morgan Freeman. They play three friends having a difficult time financially, who decide to plot an elaborate bank robbery. Not only does Arkin get to work with two of his contemporaries, but he also gets a love interest in the movie in none other than Ann-Margret, who hasn’t been seen on the big screen in anything high profile in quite some time.
