'Blood Simple' to Albert Brooks: Why Spring of 1985 was something special

20 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are roughly 900,000 tribute pieces online this week about the 1985 John Hughes film "The Breakfast Club," and I understand the motivation. If you were the right age when the film was released (I was 15 at the time), that movie felt like a lightning bolt right to the face. Hughes treated teenagers like they were actual people with complex emotional lives worthy of respect, and while that would seem to be a logical approach to writing about any character, it certainly didn't feel average when he did it. He wrote about that secret world of teenagers with what felt like laser accuracy, and he basically created an entire industry of movies that tried to tap into that same audience. So certainly, there is much to celebrate when looking back at that particular film, but when I went to look at a list of the films that came out in 1985, a year »

'Furious 7' International Trailer Returns to Race Wars

20 February 2015 10:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the TV spot with new footage and the soundtrack and music videos released earlier this week, Universal Pictures has released an international trailer for Furious 7, which brings Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) back to Race Wars. As you may recall, Letty returned in Fast & Furious 6, although she didn't have any memory of the time she spent with Dom. It seems Letty still hasn't recovered all of her memories, since she doesn't remember inventing Race Wars with Dom.

Continuing the global exploits in the unstoppable franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of Fast & Furious 7. James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black.

International Trailer For Furious 7 Takes It Back To Where It All Began

20 February 2015 8:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal has served up the international trailer for Furious 7, which takes the action back to where it all began.

Long-time fans of the gleeful street racing saga will no doubt remember Race Wars as the event in which Paul Walker’s Brian has to prove his worth to Dom and the rest of the Toretto crew. Taking place on a stretch of desert — filmed at the San Bernardino International Airport — the event brought together the hottest cars in the business for a bout of one on one racing, with pink slips and reputation on the line.

With James Wan behind the lens, Furious 7 will see the crew haunted by the sins of London, as Jason Statham’s Ian Shaw seeks revenge for the death of his younger brother. It may be a simple set-up, but from the footage released thus far, it looks as if Wan and Co. »

McFarland, USA – The Review

19 February 2015 8:44 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

There was a time no too long away that the Disney company was only known for animation. But after enormous success in that arena, Uncle Walt decided he needed to branch out into live action. After dipping his toe in the water with “true-life” nature shorts, he jumped all in with several features produced and filmed in Europe. Then he went all out with 1954’s smash 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Now, as with his animated features, these films usually played to family audiences. Walt  had something of a studio staple of stars with the likes of Fred MacMurray, Hayley Mills, and Kurt Russell , He even had the top grossing film of 1968, The Love Bug. Really. After Walt passed on, the new studio heads in the 1980’s decided to branch out into more adult subject matter for new features. But these would not go out under the Disney name and so »

Get Ready For Snake When Scream Factory Unleashes 2-Disc Collector’s Edition of Escape From New York This April!!

19 February 2015 10:24 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Be still my beating heart. I adore everything John Carpenter has done, but there’s  special place in my heart for Escape From New York that leads back to experiencing it for the first time with my grandmother as a kid. It was a film that instantly made me smile ear to ear, and my eyes widen larger than a basketball. Sure there have been plenty of home video releases of the film throughout the years, but none of them were quite as epic as what the awful awesome gang at Scream Factory has lined up for fans of the 1981 classic, when they release a brand new 2-Disc Bluray Collector’s Edition this April 21st. The film has been remastered in a brand new 2K transfer from the original negatives, meaning well, it’s time to see Snake kick ass in true HD. For a complete list of special features, »
