6 December 2010 4:16 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Scandinavian TV show "Gylne Tider" is promoting its fourth season and was able to gather a large number of American celebrities from the 80s and 90s to lip sync to The Beatles' "Let It Be" song. The list of stars includes Jason Alexander, Steve Guttenberg, Lou Ferrigno, Ricki Lake, Tonya Harding, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Roger Moore, George Wendt, Glenn Close, David Faustino, Alfonso Ribeiro, Pamela Anderson, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Judd Nelson, Peter Falk, Kelly McGillis, Rick Schroder, Robert Englund, Kathleen Turner, Daryl Hannah, and even Leslie Nielsen. The video actually uses the "Ferry Aid" version of the song which was made in 1987 to benefit the victims of the capsized Ms Herald of Free Enterprise ferry that ended up killing 193 people.

Afm 2010: First Footage Seen From Ti West's The Innkeepers

4 November 2010 1:36 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Though the film is still in post production with sound design apparently the order of the day the good folk at Mpi have arrived at the American Film Market armed with three scenes from House of the Devil director Ti West's The Innkeepers. My love for House of the Devil is well documented - I believe it was the best American horror film of its year - so my expectations could not be much higher for this and I am very pleased to say that they were all met.

The scenes here were chosen not to showcase the scares of the movie - which revolves around the staff and guests of a supposedly haunted hotel on its final weekend before closing - but because they were the most complete and the most able to showcase the characters, the acting and the overall tone of the film. And they do all three very well indeed. »

Director Jim Mickle, Nick Damici, and Connor Paolo Interview Stake Land

29 October 2010 12:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my favorite films at Fantastic Fest this year was the vampire road film Stake Land (you can read my review here). While it may have been a small budget film, the scope of the movie is quite big and everything feels of the utmost quality. Gritty, tough, and yet full of heart, this was a fun ride from beginning to end that had a slew of different vampire classes. Although I had yet to see the film when I got the opportunity to interview writer/director Jim Mickle, co-writer Nick Damici, and star Connor Paolo, I had a feeling this was something I would not want to pass up. The news that Stake Land won the Midnight Madness award out of Toronto International Film Festival just a few weeks prior had given me confidence in my decision. Luckily, it worked out quite well because I loved the film »

New Line Offers Tom Cruise a Role in the Adaptation of Broadway Musical Rock Of Ages

27 October 2010 8:52 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After playing a barman in 1988’s Cocktail, Tom Cruise may again shake some beverages. Deadline reports New Line has offered him a supporting role in the big screen version of the Broadway hit musical Rock of Ages. The story takes place 1987 on the Sunset Strip: “a small town girl met a big city rocker and in La’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80s.”

The actor either wants to pursue a dream of performing in a musical or reclaim his dwindling career, stuck somewhere between the 80s and 90s. And what better way than to sing the hit tunes of his youth and stir up some nostalgia?  In Cocktail, he sang along and danced to the Robert Palmer classic “Addicted to Love,” but can he really carry a tune or will he benefit from engineering magic? Tom Cruise has belted it »

27 October 2010 3:53 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Twenty-four years after his big screen barstool serenade of Kelly McGillis in "Top Gun," Tom Cruise may be getting ready to "Rock" out again on the big screen.

New Line Cinema has offered Tom a supporting role in the upcoming big screen version of "Rock of Ages," a rep for the box office superstar confirmed to Access Hollywood.

The film, an adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, will reportedly star Taylor Swift in the role of Sherrie Christian, which was first played by original Broadway "Legally Blonde" bombshell Laura Bell Bundy in the Los Angeles opening run of ...

Tom Cruise to revisit his bartending days for Rock of Ages?

27 October 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Tom Cruise might be revisting his bartending days. New Line is offering Mr. Cruise a supporting role in the upcoming musical Rock Of Ages. They want him to play the bartender that belts out 80's hair band tunes. Cruise did a little bit of singing for Top Gun when he let Kelly McGillis know that he had "Lost that Lovin' Feelin'". Apparently Cruise has always really wanted to do a musical. But can the guy carry a tune? I guess it's not essential. They can do all sorts of things »

Tom Cruise's Maverick Would Be The Star Of 'Top Gun 2,' Says Screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie

27 October 2010 12:02 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

When MTV News heard that director Tony Scott, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and "Usual Suspects" screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie were speeding down the highway to the danger zone for a sequel to 1986's "Top Gun," we nearly wet our Naval aviator jumpsuits with joy. Of course, our enthusiasm for "Top Gun 2" wasn't quite unbridled because Tom Cruise was reportedly only going to appear in a small supporting role, presumably making way for a new crop of cocky pilots to take steam baths together, make slow sweet love to Kelly McGillis, and play volleyball whilst listening to Kenny Loggins' "Playin' With the Boys."

Well, you can go ahead and take that bridle right off your enthusiasm... because McQuarrie sent an email to Vulture (which broke the sequel news a couple weeks back) to deliver this brief but powerful message: "There is no 'Top Gun 2' in which Maverick is not the starring role. »

Morning Meme: Hate From Arkansas, Carol Burnett's "Glee" Role, and a Correction From Neil Patrick Harris

27 October 2010 5:26 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I don’t even know where to begin with Clint McCance, and Midland County School Board member from Arkansas. The nicest thing he posted on his Facebook page just before Spirit Day was

““Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. The only way im wearin [sic]it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed therselves [sic]because of their sin. Really People.”  

It got nastier and crueler from there, and he makes policy decisions for children. Speaking of, he’d disown his own if they were gay. It seems like he’s got a lock on Asshat when I post the poll Friday. Read the full story at Human Rights Campaign. Protect the children from people like him. 

Probably a distant second is going to be the Catholic Church, »

Cruise In The Cockpit For "Top Gun 2" ?

25 October 2010 12:37 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, director Tony Scott of Scott Free, wants to mount "Top Gun 2", starring an older, but wiser Tom Cruise, focusing on the modern day air force.

"These computer geeks," said Scott, "these kids play war games in a trailer in Fallon, Nevada and if we ever went to war or were in the Middle East or the Far East or wherever it is, these guys can actually fly drones. They are unmanned aircraft. They operate them and then they party all night."

The first "Top Gun" feature, released in 1986, grossed $353,816,701 worldwide.

Directed by Scott, produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, in association with Paramount Pictures, the screenplay was written by Jim Cash and Jack Epps, Jr., inspired by the article "Top Guns" written by Ehud Yonay for "California Magazine".

In the film, co-starring Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, and Tom Skerritt, Cruise plays 'Lieutenant Pete "Maverick" Mitchell', »

Sitges 2010: Another glowing review of Stake Land

25 October 2010 6:01 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Year: 2010

Directors: Jim Mickle

Writers: Jim Mickle / Nick Damici

IMDb: link

Promo trailer (no actual footage): link

Review by: Corridorstyle

Rating: 8 out of 10

And you thought being a teenager was already tough enough. Welcome to Stake Land kid.

With his feature follow up to "Mullberry Street" U.S director Jim Mickle brings us a post apocalyptic view of a near future where mankind is beset by a virus which turns it's victims into Vampires, leaving the survivors to pick through the crumbled remains of humanity while keeping one eye over their shoulder.

The States depicted in Mickle's ravaged future are far from United as survivors gather in small communities, clinging to whatever they can in order to preserve what little they have left, material or otherwise. It's a world where strangers are viewed suspiciously and night comes around all too quickly.

Top Gun 2 With Tom Cruise in the Works?

23 October 2010 10:32 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Top Gun 2, you like the sound of that? Hmm, eighties are back, why not?

Well, 24 years later Paramount has asked producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott to work on a follow-up to the blockbuster and Christopher McQuarrie has been asked to update the story.

And, according to some reports, Tom Cruise seems to be interested in reprising his role as Lt. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell, but only in a supporting role, and only if it’s not an “obvious” part.

So, guys from the New York Magazine report:

“We’re told by a source close to the project that McQuarrie – who is friendly with Cruise – has found a way to incorporate Maverick, and what’s more, we hear that Cruise has to agreed to take a smaller role in the film, provided it’s not too “obvious” a part, i.e. Lt. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell as grizzled Top Gun flight instructor. »

Frustrated Ramblings: Top Gun = Top Film... Fact!

10 October 2010 10:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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. »

Fantastic Fest 2010: Stake Land Review

6 October 2010 7:01 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sometimes you take a premise and wring it for all it’s worth and you add some soul, humor, great casting, and gritty action to give it the right flavor. That’s exactly what the post-apocalyptic vampire road movie Stake Land does, as director Jim Mickle takes Nick Damici’s script and fine-tunes the narrative enough to elevate it above a simple romp through vampire infested back roads and really connect with the audience. The biggest draw will be the different classes of vampires Stake Land introduces, but even the retreaded portions of the film are executed so well that the end result is better than the sum of its parts. Hit the jump for my full review and why this was my favorite film of the entire festival.

We are dropped into the middle of a post-apocalyptic world where vampires run amok after a virus of some sort has quickly spread through the world. »

Are Bening *And* Moore All Right?

5 October 2010 10:47 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Some people are adamant that Annette Bening and Julianne Moore, the co-leads of “The Kids Are All Right” (Focus Features, 7/9, trailer), cannot both be nominated for the best actress Oscar this year. That’s a bunch of malarkey. Not only can they, and not only should they, but — if Focus genuinely fights the good fight for both of them, as studio insiders emphatically insist to me that they will — they will be.

Those who say that it cannot happen point to the large number of quality contenders in the category this year and insist that there isn’t room for two people from the same film. I disagree. Bening and Moore are together in virtually every scene of the film (Moore actually has a few more scenes, alongside Mark Ruffalo). Both actresses have some terrific moments in the film (especially Bening’s return to the dinner table after discovering Moore »

“1 a Minute” wants to help stop the clock on breast cancer deaths

5 October 2010 8:00 AM, PDT | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Generally, I rebel against pink. (The color, not the awesome musician.) Too many years of my mother trying to make me girly, I guess. But I willingly, even proudly, wear pink to honor survivors – and non-survivors – of breast cancer.

During October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we see pink everywhere. NFL players wear it (and those who won’t should be ashamed). People add it to their online avatars. It becomes the background of television show stages, the subject of talk shows — even a common theme in the comics pages.

And seriously, that’s great. Anything that raises awareness of a disease that can be managed with early detection is awesome. But sometimes I think we tend to forget that behind all of this pink is an army of courageous men and women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Individuals who fight like hell to survive – and feel like hell in the process. »

Fantastic Fest Reviews: 'Stake Land,' 'Julia's Eyes,' 'We Are What We Are,' and 'Rammbock'

3 October 2010 12:03 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Horror, Cinematical, Festivals

By Luke Mullen

'Stake Land,' directed by Jim Mickle (United States)

'Stake Land' is essentially a Western road movie with vampires. After the vampire apocalypse, small pockets of humanity remain but they're few and far between. Things are further complicated by the Brotherhood, a violent, Aryan-style religious group controlling the major roadways and terrorizing non-believers using vampires as weapons. Nick Damici stars as Mister, the gruff loner on his way to New Eden, the Zion-esque human community. Mister comes across the young Martin, played by Connor Paolo, and takes him under his wing. The unlikely duo take to the open road, killing vampires and running afoul of the Brotherhood while Mister mentors Martin in the finer points of survival. But their scrapes with the Brotherhood make them marked men and vampires may be the least of their problems on the road to New Eden. »
