'The Last Starfighter' Remake Eyed by 'Star Wars' Writer

28 February 2015 2:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though not a substantial hit when it first arrived in theaters way back in 1984, The Last Starfighter, renowned for being one of the first movies to ever use CGI visual effects, has gained quite a cult audience over the years. A remake seems like a no brainer, especially with its timely story of a video game obsessed teenager who is called upon to save the universe. But that may not happen anytime soon according to writer Gary Whitta, who loves the idea of doing a reboot. Unfortunately, it seems the rights are currently tied up and almost impossible to obtain.

Remaking The Last Starfighter is Gary Whitta's dream project. And he's not alone. There are apparently many in the industry who would love to take on the project. About remaking The Last Starfighter, the former Star Wars Spin-Off writer states:

Who Has Been on ‘Saturday Night Live’ the Longest?

25 February 2015 5:47 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Last week NBC struck it rich in the ratings when it aired a three-hour special devoted to the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live. The late night sketch comedy show debuted on October 11, 1975 and starred Gilda Radner, Dan Akroyd, and Chevy Chase. Over the course of 40 seasons, there have been a total of 141 cast members. Some of those fan favorites include Phil Hartman, Adam Sandler, and Amy Poehler. There were even a few stars you may not have known appeared on the series because they wore out their welcome in such a short amount of time. Both Ben Stiller and Sarah Silverman did not survive a full season, while Laurie Metcalf never appeared on a sketch that made it to the live broadcast. Due to the writer’s strike, she was let go after that one episode. On the flip side, there have been many stars who…

Pee-Wee Herman returning in new Netflix movie

24 February 2015 1:51 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Someone tune up the Breakfast Machine because Pee-Wee Herman is making a return.

The Wrap reported on Tuesday that Pee-Wee Herman would be returning in a feature-length film, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, that will be premiering on Netflix. Judd Apatow will produce the film with Paul Reubens returning to the lead role and co-writing the script with Paul Rust.

“Judd and I dreamt up this movie four years ago. The world was much different back then— Netflix was waiting by the mailbox for red envelopes to arrive. I’ve changed all that,” Reubens said via a press release. “The future is here. Get used to it. Bowtie is the new black.”

A revival film has been hinted for years now with speculation starting back in 2011 when the Pee-Wee Herman show hit Broadway with an HBO special, which Apatow worked on also.

Details of the movie are unknown, but Reubens said »

New poster for The Cobbler featuring Adam Sandler

24 February 2015 11:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we saw a new trailer for director Thomas McCarthy’s (The Station Agent) latest film The Cobbler [watch it here], and now we have the first poster featuring Adam Sandler as the titular shoe repair man…

Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Sometimes walking in another man’s shoes is the only way one can discover who they really are.

The Cobbler is set for release on March 13th in the States and May 22nd in the UK, with a cast that also includes Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Dustin Hoffman (Kung Fu Panda 2), Ellen Barkin (The New Normal), Method Man (Red Tails »

Netflix To Release Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday

24 February 2015 10:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix continues to make forays into the world of original feature films. With Adam Sandler securing a four-picture deal with the company, the next (and far more auspicious step) that the streaming and DVD service has taken is into the world of Pee-Wee Herman. It was announced earlier today that Paul Reubens’ new Pee-Wee film, Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, will be released worldwide on Netflix.

The Judd Apatow-produced Pee-Wee film has been a long time coming: it was originally set up over at Universal, but has since migrated to Netflix, who already streams the original TV show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, as well as both feature films, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Big Top Pee-Wee. Adding another Pee-Wee film to its roster makes perfect sense, and probably will give the cult fanbase a much bigger chance at seeing it.

Paul Reubens himself sounds quite excited about the Netflix deal, saying »

Pee-wee Herman Star Reprises Role at 62 for New Netflix Movie

24 February 2015 9:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Pee-wee Herman is making a comeback.

Nearly 30 years after the man-boy hit the big screen in Tim Burton's Pee-wee's Big Adventure, the beloved franchise -- which was also a TV kid show, Pee-wee's Playhouse, that won 22 Emmy Awards over its five-season run -- has landed another all-star director for its new Netflix film.

Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, This Is 40) will head up Pee-wee's Big Holiday, with Paul Reubens reprising his red bow-tied role. "Judd and I dreamt up this movie four years ago," Reubens, 62, said of the film. "The world was much different back then -- Netflix was waiting by the mailbox for red envelopes to arrive. I've changed all that. The future is here. Get used to it."

Kirk Cameron And Cameron Diaz “Win” Big At 2015 Razzie Awards

22 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about any of that “Oscars” silliness, or Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties. No, I’m talking about the 2015 Razzie Awards, in which all the crap of the crop from this past year in cinema at last gets its well-deserved comeuppance.

This year’s “winners” are a particularly disreputable bunch, with Kirk Cameron leading the pack for his atrocious Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and Michael Bay reliably racking up more Golden Raspberry Awards for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. It was a strangely good night for Ben Affleck, who took home the “Redeemer” Award for turning his career around from Gigli to Gone Girl, and a bad one for Cameron Diaz, who lost out in Worst Supporting Actress for Annie (which still, deservedly, won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel) but received »

Razzie Awards 2015 'Winners': The Full List

21 February 2015 4:05 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 2015 Razzies "winners" have been announced, leaving the "losers" to breathe a collective sigh of relief -- because, well, who the hell wants to win a Razzie?

You see, for the past 35 years, on the eve of the Oscars, the Golden Raspberry Awards has honored the very best of the very worst movies released the previous year -- and this year's competition was nothing short of spectacular...ly tragic. Everyone -- from Razzie favorites Nicolas Cage and Michael Bay to newcomers Nicola Peltz and Gaia Weiss -- was in the crosshairs, but only 10 took home Razzies.

Here then, ladies and gentlemen, is the full list of winners from the 2015 Razzie Awards.

10 People Brave Enough To Accept Their Razzie Awards

20 February 2015 9:18 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

United Artists

It’s fair to say that, generally speaking, if you tell someone they’re awful at something they’re not going to take it well. No one likes to be criticised and when that criticism comes in a public forum, people can sometimes spit their dummies out in annoyance.

For the most part, this is true of Hollywood luminaries who have been awarded a Razzie. The Golden Raspberry Awards is, after all, all about recognising the very worst that Hollywood has to offer, whether it’s terrible performances, incoherent screenplays or godawful direction.

Even truly great people have found themselves under the unwanted spotlight of the Razzies – while nominations and wins for actors like Adam Sandler and Paris Hilton are to be expected, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando and Laurence Olivier have all been given awards, while directors such as Gus Van Sant and Michael Cimono have been dishonoured with Worst Director trophies. »

11 Actors Who Had an Oscar-Nominated Movie & a Total Bomb Come Out at the Same Time

20 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not every movie can be a winner. And not every actor can be Meryl Streep.

Even Oscar nominees make bad movies and sometimes, in an unfortunate twist of fate and bad timing, that bomb, that dud, that total and complete flop, comes out at the same time as some of the best work of their life. Here are 11 times that happened in the past 10 years:

Focus Features

1. Eddie Redmayne (2015)

Nominated Role: The Theory of Everything. Redmayne is the Best Actor favorite this year for this biopic about Stephen Hawking navigating black holes and Als.

Losing Role: Jupiter Ascending. This totally effing bonkers Wachowski sci-fi flick came out just before Oscar voting started. And once you see Redmayne as Bowie-esque space prince Balem Abrasax, it cannot be unseen.

The Weinstein Company

2. Jennifer Lawrence (2013)

Winning Role: Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence took home Best Actress for her turn as a trouble townie named Tiffany in this dark spin on a rom-com »
