Inside 'Red Oaks': An Eighties TV Show That's Not Ironic

22 hours ago | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"The Eighties were good to me," says Jennifer Grey, and considering she's best known for having the time of her life with Patrick Swayze in 1987's Dirty Dancing, that would make sense. "You know those people who rock that hairdo from the moment they got laid the most in their life? The Eighties are a bit like that for me."

Grey, who also appeared in Red Dawn and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, isn't quite ready to leave the age of Rubik's cubes and Max Headroom behind — she currently appears as »

Feige Down With Rousey As Captain Marvel

3 October 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

From Tyrese Gibson for Green Lantern, to Taron Egerton for Wolverine, various actors have made it fairly clear in social media outlets and interviews that they'd love to be considered for a particular on screen superhero role.

One such person is Mma fighting champ and action movie scene stealer Ronda Rousey. Rousey has expressed an interest in being cast as Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it's a possibility that Marvel chief Kevin Feige seems excited by. Asked specifically about the Rousey as Captain Marvel campaigning, he tells Heroic Hollywood:

"I love it. That happens occasionally, and I think that's a testament more to the strength of the characters. Going back to my early days at Marvel, there were always various people campaigning to be Wolverine.

I guess that was pre-Twitter and pre-Internet days, but still for some reason would pop up in Wizard Magazine. Wizard Magazine would »

Catherine Coulson, 'Twin Peaks' Log Lady, Passes Away at 71

28 September 2015 6:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sad news for Twin Peaks fans and lovers of classic TV. Actress Catherine E. Coulson passed away on Monday at the age of 71. She succumbed to cancer. She was perhaps best known as the Log Lady on David Lynch's cult series.

Twin Peaks is being revived on Showtime, with all-new episodes shooting later this year. Pre-production is happening now in Washington state. Varitey confirms that Catherine E. Coulson was set to reprise her role as the Log Lady, a character which she also played in director David Lynch's film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which served as a prequel to the canceled ABC show.

More recently, Catherine E. Coulson appeared in a fan-favorite role as proprietor of Marionberry farm on Portlandia, which reunited her with Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan, who plays the Mayor of Portland. She also starred in the movie Redwood Highway opposite Shirley Knight and Tom Skerritt. »

11 Action Movies that Need an All-Female Reboot

24 September 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In addition to the all-female "Ghostbusters" we have coming up next year, Mma fighter Ronda Rousey is set to star in a reboot of the Patrick Swayze camp classic "Road House." It's almost enough to make you think producers have woken up to the fact women go to movies and don't sit at home in their pajamas watching "Snapped" while eating gluten-free bonbons (at least, like, not all the time). Since three's a trend, we have a list of suggestions for the next girl power reboot. And while it's tempting (and completely reasonable) to fill in the "why" section with "why the hell not?" we'll try to resist the urge (mostly).  »

Latest Point Break Trailer Takes ’91 Keanu Reeves Hit To A New Level

22 September 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The latest Point Break trailer makes it clear that the new cast and crew are not just trying to remake the early 90s surfers and robbers movie. They’re trying to up the ante. More stunts, bigger thrills, and an even thicker plot line look to come with this updated version.

What seemed at first to be a laughable remake project is shaping up to be a better-than-average action film. When the project was announced last year, many industry observers scratched their collective heads. How is it a film that made less than $100M globally and finished #29 of top grossing films for 1991 becomes the basis for a high budget reboot/remake? The original film was essentially an empty box action film designed as a vehicle for two rising stars in Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. The film has easily picked up more audience from late night cable syndication runs than »

While trying to say that she would not be as aggressive early in her fight against Holly Holm, her opponent at the upcoming Ufc 193, Rousey said, “I knew that if I came in her face right away–oh, that sounded terrible.” Rousey proceeded to crack up laughing, along with everyone else in attendance. She collected herself before slipping in one more joke. “Not right away. I take my time, Ok?” Also Read: Ronda Rousey to Play Patrick Swayze Role in 'Road House' Remake After a few more laughs, »

The new Point Break trailer is here!

17 September 2015 11:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A new trailer for the Point Break remake has been delivered. This one provides an extended look at the upcoming movie, though I’m still not convinced. The film will open this Christmas in the Us, and the UK shortly afterwards.

Édgar Ramírez fills Patrick Swayze’s shoes ass Bodhi, while Luke Bracey plays young FBI agent Johnny Utah. Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, and Delroy Lindo also star.

The new trailer is slightly better than the last one that we saw, and we get a good look at Ray Winstone’s character and the new ‘dead presidents’ masks, as well as the high-octane stunts.

Here’s the plot.

In the fast-paced, high-adrenaline “Point Break,” a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Édgar Ramírez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways. »

Watch: New ‘Point Break’ Trailer Highlights Extreme Sports, Cash Giveaway

17 September 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for its reboot of “Point Break,” highlighting extreme sports such as surfing massive waves — plus millions of stolen dollars tossed out of an airplane into a poor village.

“We’re all going to die; the question is how,” intones Bodhi, portrayed by Edgar Ramirez in the Patrick Swayze role, as the thrill-seeking leader of a group of criminals.

The trailer shows the new version of FBI agent Johnny Utah, played by Luke Bracey in the Keanu Reeves part, coming to the realization that the robbers are committing the crimes in order to honor the forces of nature. The first trailer for the reboot hit the web in May.

Alcon Entertainment began developing the project in 2011, when it acquired rights to the 1991 film property with plans to set the reboot in the world of extreme sports.

New ‘Point Break’ Remake Trailer: Occupy BrahStreet

A full 24 years after Keanu Reeves’ super chill yet morally conflicted FBI undercover agent Johnny Utah hunted down bank-robbing surfers led by Patrick Swayze, Point Break is getting a modernized remake courtesy of Warner Bros. You know that, but with the new trailer, we now have an idea of just how modernized. In a word, it really wants you to think of it as a post-Great Recession action film.

Johnny Utah and Bodhi go worldwide in this breathtaking teaser for the Point Break reboot

17 September 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Johnny Utah and Bodhi take their crime spree worldwide in a breathtaking extended teaser for the Point Break reboot.

There's crazy action galore as Luke Bracey and Édgar Ramírez step into the iconic roles played by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in the 1991 original.

Point Break star Lori Petty slams reboot: "That's some stupid shit right there"

The basic plot remains the same, as undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah (Bracey) infiltrates gang leader Bodhi's (Ramírez) crew to bring him down.

What Johnny discovers is that Bodhi's next heist has worldwide implications far beyond what the FBI anticipated when he was put into deep cover.

Director Ericson Core's Point Break remake has had a long road to the big screen, with Gerard Butler once attached to play Bodhi before dropping out.

Warner Bros and Summit's Point Break update finally hits the big screen on Christmas Day (December 25) in the Us and January 8, 2016 in the UK. »

Point Break Remake Trailer: These Athlete-Crooks Are Extreme, Bro

17 September 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Point Break that you know and love, featuring Patrick Swayze as a surfer/criminal mastermind and Keanu Reeves as the undercover agent who infiltrates his gang, is getting a face-lift this Christmas with the remake. This time, Edgar Ramirez is in the part of Bodhi and The Best of Me's Luke Bracey is FBI agent Johnny Utah, and the first trailer will at least please the action junkies (or, uh, the stunts junkies). The plot is generally the same - Utah infiltrates Bodhi's gang, who use their extreme sport prowess to pull off high-stakes heists, but everything is just a bit more 2015. The stunts are bigger, the sports more extreme - as Keanu would say: whoa. Here's the first trailer: »

Ronda Rousey Sounds Pretty Nervous About The Road House Remake

14 September 2015 8:04 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Mma fighter Ronda Rousey may have felt a nervous tic or two before her highly buzzed about match with Bethe Correia, but even that doesn’t compare to starring in a remake of Road House. The Entourage movie and Furious 7 actress will portray Patrick Swayze’s beloved character in a new film from MGM, and though she’s clearly up for the challenge, it’s got her shaking in her boots a bit.   While speaking with Entertainment Tonight about her upcoming appearance at the Marine Corps Ball, she vocalized her nerves in taking on the part. She said:  I think it’s been a year or two that I’ve been pursuing that [role].

Rousey Nervous About "Road House" Remake

14 September 2015 6:23 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The recent announcement of Mma fighter Ronda Rousey starring in MGM's remake of the Patrick Swayze classic "Road House" has generally been met with a very good response.

Yet in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Rousey revealed a softer side than her tough woman image - revealing that she's quite nervous about taking on the role:

"I think it's been a year or two that I've been pursuing that [role]. I'm like obsessed with Road House, I love Road House. I can see why people would be hesitant to see a remake because it is such a classic.

In my own way I'm nervous. I get really nervous for fights, I get scared and stuff like that. The worst thing that's gonna happen is that I'll really suck and disgrace the name of Swayze and Road House-ness and everyone will hate me."
