The actor following in the footsteps of Sigourney Weaver has been dubbed ‘the new Ripley’
Ripley, the indomitable action hero played by Sigourney Weaver in the Alien series, may have hung up her flamethrower for good, but the franchise’s latest prequel, Alien: Covenant, features a convincing replacement in the form of tough cookie Daniels, played by Katherine Waterston. The 37-year-old actor got her breakthrough role as the enigmatic Shasta Fay in Paul Thomas Anderson’s fuzzy comic thriller Inherent Vice and was last seen sporting a cloche hat and brandishing a wand as Tina in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
In person, she cuts a jaunty, unassuming figure. She saunters into the room in white trainers and navy trousers, red socks visible in the gap between them: a black tank-top partially conceals a white T-shirt. She is tomboyish and tall, like Ally Sheedy on stilts, so that »

Much can be said for us genre fans. Probably at the top of the list for some would be the fact that we're a stubborn bunch. When we get a notion in our heads, we don't let that go, much like a two year old throwing a fit in a store because their parent won't buy them some candy.
MTV News is reporting that once again, Zendaya has come out denying that she's playing Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming. We don't know much about her character in the movie as yet, apart from scene stealing glimpses in the trailers released for the film and that her character is named Michelle.
"My character is 100 percent Michelle," she told MTV News correspondents Gaby Wilson and Josh Horowitz at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. "That's her name. I promise you I'm not lying."Zendaya went on to describe Michelle as "weird and interesting and cool, »

We prefer to remember these monumental moments in teen film makeouts instead of our own high school experiences. Please join us on a butterfly-inducing trip down memory lane.
A Walk to Remember (2002)
Shortly before making us collapse in tears, A Walk to Remember has us swooning at the sight of Jamie (Mandy Moore) and Landon’s (Shane West) first non-theater obligated kiss. Like the entirety of the first date Landon planned, the kiss is perfect.

Before I began writing professionally about horror, I will be the first to admit I was a total stick in the mud. It wasn’t 100% my fault, but I was one of those people who had to have everything planned perfectly, and was always happy to bend over backwards to make sure I was living up to society’s expectations of who I should be, particularly close family members. I was living in this neat little box of a life, and honestly, it was destroying me from the inside, each and every single day.
Then, along came Hot Fuzz, and I realized that life doesn’t have to be so perfect, and that it’s okay to embrace who you are, even if it is a bit unconventional, because regardless of what anyone else thinks, just love what you love and never let anyone tell differently. I was finally ready »

In Sam Raimi's early 2000s Spider-Man franchise, Kirsten Dunst appears as the bubbly, popular, redheaded Mary Jane Watson, one of Peter Parker's most iconic love interests. With a new version of the teenage web-slinger's story on the way in the form of Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, fans have been trying to determine if Zendaya, whose casting as "Michelle" was announced to much fanfare, is the next person to step into Mj's shoes. Shortly after The Wrap confirmed that Zendaya's role was indeed Mary Jane last Summer, we went on a visit to Spider-Man: Homecoming's Atlanta set, where we assumed we'd get a straight answer about the true nature of her role. The short version? We're still not totally sure who she's playing. The long version? Well, keep reading.

With a multi-generational reunion of sorts between Brat Pack alum Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy’s son in the works, we’re taking the opportunity to catch up with all of the former ’80s teen phenoms — and their offspring — over 30 years after they first earned their iconic nickname.
During a recent appearance on The Moms, McCarthy revealed that his 15-year-old son, Sam, will appear in an upcoming movie called All These Small Moments alongside the famous red-head.
“She emailed me on the first day and she said, ‘Your son just did a scene and when he walked away, it was »

As the definition of an independent film has shifted with the ever-expanding budget divide in American filmmaking — particularly Hollywood cutting back on its mid-range projects — when it comes time for awards season, it’s often only the highest profile of “indie films” that get recognized. While we do our best to recognize the films that often get unfortunately, a new awards has launched that honors the best of truly independent American cinema, featuring films all under a $1 million budget.
Aptly titled the American Independent Film Awards (aka AIFAs), they were voted on by international film festival programmers, U.S. based film festival programmers, and North American film critics (including yours truly.) “First and foremost, we would like to thank all film producers and distribution companies who helped us identify qualifying films and outline the categories. We’d also like to thank the international and American based film festival programmers, and »

Anthony Michael Hall appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, where a judge made it clear the actor is to stay away from his alleged victim.
The Breakfast Club actor, 48, pleaded not guilty to the charge of felony battery on Dec. 1 after an arrest warrant was issued following an alleged physical altercation with his neighbor.
Hall’s neighbor, Richard Samson, did not appear in court on Thursday, where a judge set a preliminary hearing for Feb. 23.
The judge also warned Hall not to contact Sampson, his family or his girlfriend by any means, after Sampson’s attorney requested that the judge do so. »
