The Vampire Diaries Fans Are Freaking Out About Ian Somerhalder's Love Life on the Show—So We Got Some Answers

18 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let the record show: There is no TV fandom more tortured right now  than the fans who love The Vampire Diaries' Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), a k a "Delena." No seriously, every other fandom can just go home. Or rather, go out into the world and live your lives because you aren't at home, curled up in a ball grieving.Yolo, non-Delena fans. Yolo. Damon (Ian) and Elena's (Nina) final scene of the May finale, in which Damon passed over to another dimension, and he can see her but she can't see him, was so gut-wrenching, and reminiscent of Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in Ghost, we still get choked up at the very thought of it.

Con Air director Simon West stated he would like to direct Con Air 2

30 July 2014 8:13 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Not exactly one of Jerry Bruckheimer crowning achievements but a beloved cult classic none the less (like Patrick Swayze's "best" film in the fictional town of Jasper, Missouri). Love it or hate it, Con Air did rake in $223 million at the box office worldwide. Regardless of the critics, director Simon West wants to direct a space.

In an interview with Screen Daily he says: There are always rumors about a Con Air 2. I would do it if it was completely turned on its head. Con Air in space, for example – a studio version where they’re all robots or the convicts are reanimated as super-convicts, or where the good guys are bad guys and the bad guys are good guys. Something shocking. If it was clever writing it could work.

This type of mindset should not come as complete shock considering he has been entertaining audiences with »

Chris Pratt Made an Awesome Playlist, Just for You

30 July 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt's Star-Lord treasures nothing more than a classic-rock mixtape from his mother, an aural reminder of his brief boyhood spent on Earth. When we ran into Pratt last night at a Guardians screening hosted by the Cinema Society, Men's Fitness, and Fiji, we brought up Star-Lord's "Awesome Mix Vol. 1," and asked the actor what he might put on his own personal playlist. "Oh, that's a good question!" Pratt enthused. "I'm a big country music fan, so probably a lot of Garth Brooks, Eric Church, George Strait. Maybe some good '80s music — we were listening to some Madonna in the car today; I was singing the Patrick Swayze song from Dirty Dancing today." With his thoughts collected, Pratt launched into an off-the-cuff playlist, which you can listen to below. "So ... Eric Church, 'A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.' Or 'Dark Side. »

Gary Busey -- 'Point Break' Remake Offends the Living ... and the Dead

25 July 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Gary Busey is convinced the "Point Break" remake will not happen because it would be like remaking "Bambi" ... and apparently Patrick Swayze's ghost agrees with him.Our photog spotted Pappas himself in Malibu, where he insisted the movie is not happening ... even though it really is. Not only did Busey "know" the remake was not going forward, but he explained why … by invoking Swayze's name in a way only Gary could.Perhaps he meant »

10 Genuinely Horrible TV Shows Based On Popular Movies

19 July 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

You can hardly blame the powers that be for wanting to capitalize on the success of an unusually popular movie by creating a television spin-off. Undoubtedly they will expect it to be met with open arms and, more importantly, open wallets. They try to say that it will tie up loose ends from the original film and expand upon the story lines. The problem is, you see, that for the most part films don’t lend themselves to the episodic nature of television. They are very much self-contained units that function perfectly well on their own, and stretching them out is often detrimental.

Then consider the fact that film stars, until very recently, didn’t do television, and therefore would be unlikely to reprise their role. It’s a recipe for disaster, and unsurprisingly a lot of these TV spin-offs were met with derision and swift cancellation, »

Watch: Great Trailer For Indie Thriller ‘Jamie Marks Is Dead’

14 July 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Not long after the release of the trailer for David Fincher’s Gone Girl, Carter Smith brings us another trailer of a murder mystery film with a ghostly twist.

Starring Liv Tyler, Judy Greer, Cameron Monaghan and Noah Silver – comes the story of Adam who finds a friendship with the ghost of a boy who was found dead in a local river.

Together with his girlfriend, Gracie, they try to piece together the mystery of how this unpopular boy in school ended up in the depths. You could say the story sounds like the equivalent to Patrick Swayze’s character from Ghost, jumping in to Rian Johnson’s film, Brick…interesting!

Here’s that trailer:

Jamie Marks Is Dead is expected to be released in UK Cinemas August of this year.

Hollywood Scandals: The Blusterous Comedy of Chris Farley

7 July 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

"Well, la-di fricken-da."

All too often, the price of success in Hollywood proves too costly a burden to bear and we are left wondering what, if anything, could have been done to prevent the tragic loss of yet another young talent. The newest episode of our Reelz original series Hollywood Scandals explores the tragic life and death of just such a talent in Chris Farley, a Midwestern boy who dreamed of following in the footsteps of his favorite actor and comedian, the legendary party animal John Belushi.

Fortunately for us, Farley's dream came true and he gave us all the gift of laughter, following a wildly entertaining stint on the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live with several hilarious movies. Unfortunately for Farley, he followed the life of his idol a bit too closely, dying, like Belushi, of a drug overdose at the age of 33. Though he's been gone for nearly 17 years now, »

You’re in the Minority: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Actresses of Color

4 July 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

An Oscar-winning actress is an exceptional artist no matter what shade, race or ethnicity she represents. For the sake of this written piece we will concentrate on those actresses of color whose achievement in cinema (and ultimate success of capturing the golden statuette) has made them revered commodities in the motion picture industry.

For some of these minority Oscar-winning actresses being spotlighted they have either excelled at their craft early in their careers or may have enjoyed limited success in the aftermath of their glory. Whatever the case it remains certain that these feminine recipients of Academy Award distinction left a legacy on the big screen in a capacity that cannot be taken away or dismissed.

The You’re in the Minority: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Actresses of Color are (in alphabetical order according to film titles):

'Ghost: The Musical': Theater Review

1 July 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

If I pale at writing this review, it's because I've just seen a Ghost. Screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin won an Oscar for the 1990 film as did Whoopi Goldberg, supporting Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. The film was also nominated for best picture back when there were only five a year. But all that star power and the sub-Borzage skills of director Jerry Zucker helped to camouflage the flimsy clunkiness of the story's material, exposed in all its clumsy manipulation by a musical adaptation that emphasizes artificial big moments and sentimental sign-posting over grace notes and anything else that

Tony Goldwyn's Amazing TV Past (That Hair!)

29 June 2014 | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

From president to polygamist and everything in between, Tony Goldwyn has had one heck of a career. And one heck of a head of hair. Best known of course as Scandal's President Fitzgerald Grant, Goldwyn can be seen tonight as Warren Jeffs in Lifetime's Outlaw Prophet, a TV movie based on the polygamist leader. And now that he's getting all nefarious on us, we feel it's a good time to take a trip back through time and look at Golwyn's past TV work. He's been on everything from Designing Women to Dexter. And while we're just looking at old TV work, we'd be remiss not to mention he was the voice of Tarzan in Disney's 1990s flick and you hated him in Ghost opposite Patrick Swayze and Demi »

‘Point Break’ remake star Luke Bracey loves quoting the original as much as you do

25 June 2014 6:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Up-and-coming actor Luke Bracey has gotten himself a big break – as in "Point Break." Not only does the 24-year-old Australian actor co-star alongside one-time 007 Pierce Brosnan as he returns to the spy genre later this year for "The November Man," he’s just embarked on one of the most action-packed assignments a rising young star could hope for: the now-iconic role of Johnny Utah in the remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 cult classic. Spinoff Online caught up with Bracey – who began his career in the Australian TV series "Home and Away" and played Cobra Commander in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" – making the Hollywood red-carpet rounds just days before he was set to start shooting his role as the FBI agent who infiltrates a cadre of thrill-seeking surfers/bank robbers (led in Alcon Entertainment’s remake by Edgar Ramirez). He revealed that the characters once brought to life by Keanu Reeves »

23 June 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming supernatural thriller Deliver Us from Evil, &#201dgar Ram&#237rez was asked if he has been approached by director Scott Derrickson for a role in his next project, Marvel's Phase Three adventure Doctor Strange. The actor revealed that he actually has been talking with the filmmaker about joining the superhero adventure, although no specific details were revealed.

Jared Leto has been mentioned as a possible front runner for the title role, especially after today's report that he passed on replacing Will Smith in Brilliance. Tom Hardy »

Edgar Ramirez Talks About Portraying Bodhi In The Upcoming Point Break Remake

23 June 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though I don’t think that anyone is terribly excited for Alcon’s upcoming Point Break remake, one promising aspect of it is actor Edgar Ramirez, who will be playing the role of Bodhi, which Patrick Swayze originated in the 1991 version. Recently, while discussing his role as a demon-hunting priest in the upcoming horror thriller Deliver Us From Evil, Ramirez talked a little about his goals in playing the character:

“Well, I’m working on it. It’s very difficult to anticipate what things are going to turn out to be. I’m very organic as an actor so I’m letting the character grow out of me. The only similarity that I can tell you so far is it’s that subversive spirit, that rebellious spirit, that anti-system spirit that is what really the whole story is about. The structure is similar but the story is different. But we »

Edgar Ramirez Talks Point Break Remake, Taking on Bodhi, and Keeping the Subversion of the Original

16 June 2014 7:55 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

We learned earlier today Teresa Palmer is in talks for the female lead in the Point Break remake.  The timing is crucial, since production is scheduled to begin June 26.  Gerard Butler dropped out just last month, but producers soldiered on and cast Edgar Ramirez in his place.  Ramirez makes that bit of serendipity sound like the best thing that ever happened to him, calling the experience "pure magic."  We recently spoke to Ramirez to talk about his new film Libertador, and he was happy to talk about sharing his love for the original Point Break with Kathryn Bigelow, keeping the subversive aspect and protecting the legacy of the original, and his appreciation for the international cast. Ramirez plays Bodhi (the Patrick Swayze role) in the new Point Break, set in the world of international heists and extreme sports.  We'll post the full Edgar Ramirez interview down the road---read what Edgar Ramirez »
