Stan Winston Week: A Look Back at Predator with Carl Weathers & Exclusive Photo Gallery

9 July 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I’d have to say that 1987 was one of my favorite years to be a young movie fan. Because we didn’t have a ton of money, my mom and I would spend most of our weekends at the drive-in taking in double features of all kinds of now-classic films, which included John McTiernan’s eternally badass Predator.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Jesse Ventura, Bill Duke, Shane Black, Sonny Landham and Kevin Peter Hall as the titular intergalactic hunter, Predator opened at number one the weekend of June 12th despite receiving a lackluster response from critics at the time. Predator’s theatrical success would continue for another six weeks, with McTiernan’s genre-bending blockbuster eventually taking in almost $60 million during its run that summer.

Predator’s run wouldn’t end there though- there was also the release of the successful 1990 sequel Predator 2 starring Danny Glover and Gary Busey, »

'The Leftovers' TV Book Club: What changed from page to screen

30 June 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Seen HBO’s The Leftovers, and want to chat about how it compares to Tom Perrotta’s original novel? You’re in luck—so do EW’s Hillary Busis and Neil Janowitz. Their spoiler-heavy conversation—filled with thoughts on bleakness, the new Kevin, and creepy bronze baby statues—is below.

Hillary: So you know that part in This Is Spinal Tap, where the guys in the band see the cover of their latest album for the first time? It’s just this shiny, blank, dark square, an empty void Nigel describes thusly: “There is something about this that’s so black. »

Which Celebrities Got Raptured on The Leftovers?

30 June 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On last night's premiere episode of HBO's The Leftovers, about the aftermath of an event in which 2 percent of the world's population vanishes one day without explanation, there is a brief moment in which we see mention of some of the celebrities who disappeared. The Pope, naturally, but also Bonnie Raitt, Gary Busey, and Condoleezza Rice. When asked about the list last week, showrunner Damon Lindelof said, "Well, Shaquille O'Neal, Jennifer Lopez, Anthony Bourdain, and the Pope were all in the book, and my contributions were Salman Rushdie and Gary Busey. And I love Salman Rushdie’s writing, but I thought like, He’ll either get a huge kick out of it, or it’ll piss him off." So has Rushdie said anything about his disappearance? "I don’t think he’s seen the show," Lindelof said. "I think his reaction will be like, what?" »

Series premiere review: 'The Leftovers' - 'Pilot'

29 June 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Leftovers" debuted on HBO tonight. I published a review of the early part of the season on Wednesday, and an interview with creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta on Thursday, and now I have specific thoughts on the first episode coming up just as soon as I wonder how Gary Busey made the cut... "Please come home." -Kevin Garvey In that interview, both Lindelof and Perrotta talked about how they didn't initially intend the story (first in Perrotta's book, then in this show) to be quite so bleak. (Perrotta originally set out to write "an apocalyptic comedy of sorts.") But the material kept moving them in this direction, until we got to an episode that opens and closes in the toughest fashion imaginable: at the beginning with the mother's crying baby vanishing from the laundromat (and the little boy in the parking lot losing his father) and at the »

‘The Leftovers’ Review: Damon Lindelof Explores the Great Spiritual Unknown in Moody HBO Series

27 June 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When two percent of world's population disappears in an instant, who, exactly, are the chosen ones? The departed, or those left behind? “The Leftovers,” HBO's elegiac new series from “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof and novelist Tom Perrotta, grapples with that conundrum, and what it means to survive an inexplicable event, to inconclusive affect. Were 140 million people taken as part of the Rapture? Were they rewarded? Punished? Or randomly selected? The people taken offer no clues: They include entertainers as disparate as Bonnie Raitt and Gary Busey.

Justin Theroux Would Want His Cell Phone for the Rapture

27 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Leftovers — HBO's new, mildy terrifying sci-fi series based on the Tom Perotta novel — begins with the sudden disappearance of 2 percent of the world’s population in an is-it-or-isn’t-it biblical-style Rapture. Babies vanish right out their car seats; celebrities like Anthony Bourdain and Gary Busey ghost out with the rest. So at the series’ New York premiere, hosted by Tao Downtown, Vulture asked show creator Damon Lindelof, star Justin Theroux, and some other partygoers what they'd miss most if they suddenly got Raptured themselves. Andrew Rannells was very concerned about the end of Nashville. Justin Theroux"My cell phone … It depends on where I go. If I go to somewhere great, I probably won’t miss anything! But no, I would not want to be taken in a rapture.” Damon Lindelof“I have to take the sentimental route and say that I’d be panicked about [leaving my] family. Assuming that »

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 »

‘Thunderbolt and Lightfoot’ Blu-ray Review

23 June 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, George Kennedy,  Geoffrey Lewis,  Gary Busey, Catherine Bach | Written and Directed by Michael Cimino

If there is one thing that America does well it’s the road movie, really it should be no surprise as they do have quite a few of them.  From Vanishing Point to Easy Rider these movies tend to be iconic to their fans and share moments in movie history that are hard to forget.  For me though one of the best has to be Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, a film where Clint Eastwood does what he does best and Jeff Bridges put on an Academy Award nominated performance as a young upstart who just wanted to be an old crooks friend.

Even though Eastwood is obviously the star of the movie it really comes alive with the first appearance of Lightfoot (Bridges) onto the screen, stealing a car in an easy grift. »

TV on Tap: “Modern Family” Gets Chile Reception, “Orphan Black” Featured Tatiana Maslany’s Double and Misha Collins on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”

16 June 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

In honor of last night Game of Thrones finale, TV Guide lists 16 important TV moments that happened on a toilet. (Spoiler warning, the reason why Game of Thrones is on the list is explained.)

There was a special guest star in this week’s Orphan Black. Midwife Alexis was played by Kathryn Alexandre, who also functions as Tatiana Maslany‘s double. Series co-creator John Fawcett talked with EW and said that wasn’t the first role they considered for Alexandre. “Back at the beginning of the Season 1 asked her to come in and read for Gracie and then we kind of realized that part was just a little too big to cast Kathryn because there was interaction between Gracie and Helena and that was just going to turn into a mess if we cast her. So we were looking for a smaller part that we could give her to get her on camera. »

Two "Dracula" Actresses

14 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Los Angeles Times reports that one of the last remaining silent era actors has passed away. The actress in question, Carla Laemmle, had an easy in to the movies: her uncle Carl Laemmle founded Universal Studios and invited her family to live in a bungalow on the lot.  Carla only had a small part in the horror classic Dracula (1931) but a key one: she uttered the first line of dialogue. She didn't appear in many pictures in her long life, dying at 104 years of age, but she apparently just recently filmed a role in a new horror film Mansion of Blood (2014) starring Gary Busey.

In happier news - this is not a double Rip -  Lupita Tovar, a Mexican beauty who starred in the Spanish language version of Dracula that same year (in those early days of sound they made simultaneous alternative versions for other markets with the same »

The Dusty VHS Corner: Stock Footage Spectaculars

14 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe delves into The Dusty VHS Corner for a trio of stock footage spectaculars in Strategic Command, Stormcatcher and Steel Sharks

In the mid to late 90’s, there was an almost epidemic boom of straight to video films that featured plot-lines involving submarines or fighter planes. Why? Well given the vast majority of these films were shot for about $3.00 each, the idea was to have plot-lines with these elements in order to use stock shots of F-16 fighter jets, stealth fighters, U-boats and other military based vehicles of air and sea in order to give the illusion that these films were more lavishly budgeted than they actually were, and indeed to further save time in the remainder of the shoot. If you go into a film knowing that you’ve already got 15 minutes of screen-time ready in a stock footage library, then you’ve only got to worry about »

Dracula Performer Dead at 104; Uncle Founded Universal Studios

13 June 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dracula’ 1931 actress Carla Laemmle dead at 104 (photo: Carla Laemmle ca. 1930) Carla Laemmle, a bit player in a handful of silent movies and at the dawn of the sound era — e.g., the horror classics The Phantom of the Opera (1925) and Dracula (1931) — and a niece of Universal Studios co-founder Carl Laemmle, died on June 12, 2014, at her Los Angeles home. Laemmle, who had reportedly been in good health, was 104 years old. Born Rebekah Isabelle Laemmle on October 20, 1909, in Chicago, Carla Laemmle was less known for her movie work than for having survived most of her contemporaries and for her family connection to the Universal mogul — her father, Joseph Laemmle, was Carl’s brother. ‘Dracula’ actress was a member of Carl Laemmle’s ‘very large faemmle’ "Uncle Carl Laemmle, Has a very large faemmle," once half-joked poet Ogden Nash, in reference to Laemmle’s penchant for hiring family members. As Laemmle’s niece, »

From Dusk Till Dawn The Series Blog: ‘Pandemonium’ Review [Spoilers]

17 May 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Written By: Robert Rodriguez, Diego Gutierrez

Director: Robert Rodriguez

Cast: D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Robert Patrick, Wilmer Valerrama, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Eiza Gonzalez, Jake Busey

Synopsis: Santanico Pandemonium makes her appearance and the Gecko brothers see what really lurks in the club.

This episode began with the snake dance made famous by Salma Hayek in the original film but I’m finding Eiza Gonzalez a poor substitute and I don’t feel she has the strength to play Santanico.  The dance is lacking and the added dance pole just makes it look cheesy, but I did enjoy the Spanish version of ‘After Dark’ though.

Now this is where the film takes a different road to the original From Dusk Till Dawn,  Ranger Freddie Gonzalez spots Richie and a massive fight ensues.  However instead of Richie getting bitten, Gonzalez is bitten and falls down a trapdoor.

Edgar Ramirez Replaces Gerard Butler in Point Break Remake

15 May 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Gerard Butler was the first actor to join the upcoming "Point Break" remake as Bodhi, the role played by Patrick Swayze in the original film. But after the rest of the cast was hired and a shooting was set to begin in June, Butler decided to drop out due to creative differences. A search for his replacement started immediately. And now comes word that he'll be replaced by Edgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum, Zero Dark Thirty) and that the June start date is still in place. The new movie will be directed by Ericson Core (Invincible) and will co-star Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah (played by Keanu Reeve in the original) and Ray Winstone (played by Gary Busey in the original). The script is written by Kurt Wimmer (Law Abiding Citizen). »
