Flight of the Navigator Star Gets Arrested for Robbing a Bank

5 May 2016 3:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the mid 1980s, child actor Joey Cramer's career seemed to be taking off after starring in the beloved movie Flight of the Navigator at the age of 13. Sadly, it's been a long road since then. And the young actor's career ended up taking a very different path. Now he finds himself behind bars in a Vancouver jail. The Sunshine Coast Royal Mounted Police arrested the actor, 42, in connection with the April 28 robbery of a Scotiabank in Sechelt.

Coast Reporter reveals that the actor, who now goes by his full name, Deleriyes Joe Cramer, was arrested in the town of Gibsons on May 1, charged with robbery, disguise with the intent to commit an indictable offence, failing to stop for a peace officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. The latter two charges stem from an incident the day after the robbery, when Cramer allegedly fled in a vehicle »

Actors who Almost Played Famous Roles

30 April 2016 4:14 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Did you ever see an actor/actress in a famous role and then hear later that they were not the first, or even the second choice to play the iconic part? Many of the legendary movie characters began as a vehicle for a different star than the one who we know-and-love in the part. Here are a few of the greatest examples of famous "Almosts'.

 Christopher Walken As Han Solo: George Lucas had a very hard time finding his Han Solo in Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). This character was the last of the lead figures to be cast. Lucas’ leading contender at one point was none other than Christopher Walken. Just think about the possibilities in that performance! However, a chance meeting with Harrison Ford (Who was working as a carpenter at the time) inspired Lucas to cast Ford in the part instead, which launched him into super stardom in the 80s. »

Dr Strange: the first attempt to bring him to the screen

Nearly 40 years ago, Doctor Strange got his first shot at screen glory. We take a look back at the Dr Strange TV pilot...

Even the biggest superheroes had to start somewhere. Batman made his screen debut in a 15-part serial for Columbia, where he spent the entire time tussling with a ‘Japanese’ criminal called Dr Daka (actually Irish-American character actor J Carrol Naish). Superman also made his first live-action appearance in a 40s serial, with Kirk Alyn wearing some very large underpants as the Man of Steel.

Marvel’s roster of characters started to get their own shows in the 1970s, with Spider-Man leading the way and The Incredible Hulk following him with a successful, five-year run on CBS. Less widely remembered than either series, however, was CBS’ Dr Strange, which received just one 90-minute TV movie in 1978.

Best Baseball Movies

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

The Bad News Bears

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

Who are we to argue with greatness?

After skewering all-American subjects such as politics (The Candidate) and beauty pageants (Smile), director Michael Ritchie naturally set his sights on the »

Blue Bloods: Seventh Season Ordered by CBS

25 March 2016 4:59 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Fans of Blue Bloods can expect a lot more family dinner scenes at the Reagan household. CBS has just renewed the family police drama for a seventh season which will air as part of the 2016-17 television season.

On this day in pop culture history: Frank Sinatra’s final screen role

25 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

29 years ago today, CBS aired music icon Frank Sinatra’s final screen role. He guest starred in an episode of Magnum, P.I. In the episode, titled “Laura,” Sinatra played a retired New York cop who learns that his granddaughter was murdered during his retirement celebration. He asks Magnum for help in his hunt for the murderers. Sinatra appeared on the cover of TV Guide with Magnum, P.I. star Tom Selleck the week his episode aired. Though the CBS detective series was Sinatra’s final screen acting role, he could have had a part in The Godfather: Part III afterward. Francis Ford Coppola offered Sinatra the role of Don Altobello, but he didn’t end up taking the part. Oddly enough, the part went to Eli Wallach, whom Sinatra replaced in From Here to Eternity.   Other notable February 25 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: Variety show Your Show of Shows premiered on NBC. »

Archer Delivers Season 7 Teaser In The Form Of Magnum P.I Opening Credits

4 February 2016 5:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you needed any further proof that Archer is the greatest TV animated series currently on air, the team behind the show has released a teaser for its seventh season, recreating – frame for frame – the opening credits sequence of the 1980s TV series, Magnum P.I. For that alone, Academies and Guilds should simply give all their awards to Archer, right now.

For the edification of anyone under the age of 25, Magnum P.I was a hugely popular, award-winning action-adventure series that ran for eight seasons, from 1980 – 1988. Following the exploits of the titular private detective based in Hawaii, the show turned Tom Selleck into a household name, and the strains of its bouncy theme tune are sure to warm the heart of an entire generation of fans. It is not difficult to see why the team behind Archer chose Magnum P.I for homage, as the two shows share a »

"Archer" S7 Gets A "Magnum Pi" Trailer

1 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

FX have finally released the first trailer for the seventh season of Archer, this one a near shot-for-shot homage to the iconic opening credits of the 1980s Tom Selleck-led detective drama "Magnum P.I." which are also included below for comparison. I've included both U.S. (geolocked) and internationally available versions below:

The insanely filthy and hilarious series returns for a seventh season in a format which is being kept under wraps for now, though is tipped to be another "Archer Vice"-style break from routine following the events of the sixth season finale. Could this indicate they're becoming a private detective firm for hire? "Archer" returns March 31st.
