Lost in Space Date Announcement Trailer Arrives

  • Cinelinx
Today Netflix has released the trailer for the reboot of Lost In Space, and I've got to say I cant wait to watch this series. So let's stop wasting time and check out the date announcement trailer below.

Was I the only one running around screaming after this, maybe ... I dunno? All I know is I am all aboard the hype train for this series. I was a fan of the 1960's series in which Dr. John Robinson (Guy Williams), his wife Dr. Maureen Robinson (June Lockhart) and their children Judy (Marta Kristen), Penny (Angela Cartwright) and Will (Bill Mumy) leave Earth to investigate a planet suitable for human life. Joining the Robinsons on their joureny are Major Don West (Mark Goddard), pilot of the Jupiter 2 Spaceship. The Robot, who has mistakenly been called Robby the Robot, and the man who caused the Robinson family to become "Lost", Dr. Zachary

Could You Imagine Halloween Without Jamie Lee Curtis? It Almost Happened

  • BuzzSugar
Jamie Lee Curtis surprised everyone by announcing that she's returning to the Halloween franchise, which launched her career into superstardom, but did you know that she almost didn't get the part? Director John Carpenter originally wanted Anne Lockhart, the daughter of Lassie actress June Lockhart, to play the role of Laurie Strode. Debra Hill, a producer for the film, felt Curtis would have a greater value for the film's publicity because she is the daughter of Janet Leigh, who famously starred in the psychological horror film Psycho. Carpenter had never seen Curtis's acting chops, but later admitted he "was absolutely wrong" after her stellar performance in the movie, and we'd have to agree. Can you imagine anyone else besides Curtis playing the younger sibling of Michael Myers? We can't either.

2016-07-01T11:47:42-07:00Netflix 'Lost in Space' Reboot to Debut in 2018

A rebooted version of Lost in Space, the classic campy 1960s TV series has been long in the making, but Netflix announced this week that it will bring a 10-episode reboot series to the service by sometime in 2018.

The series was adapted to film in 1998; the reboot starring William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, Gary Oldman, Heather Graham and Mimi Rogers was a critical and box-office bomb.

Blu-ray Review: Troll / Troll 2 Double Feature

  • DailyDead
In the wake of the success of Joe Dante’s classic Gremlins in the mid-’80s, movie theaters were flooded with low-budget horror movies about pint-sized creatures wreaking havoc on unsuspecting humans. No one took better advantage of this phenomenon than Charles Band, who would build a dynasty of films about little monsters first with his Empire Pictures and later with Full Moon Features—everything from Ghoulies to Puppet Master, Demonic Toys to Dolls. One of Empire’s first fantasy horror films about little monsters, 1986’s Troll makes its HD debut on Scream Factory’s Blu-ray alongside its notorious sequel, Troll 2, often considered one of the worst movies ever made.

The original Troll, directed by makeup effects legend John Carl Buechler in his feature debut, tells the story of the Potter family, recent transplants to a San Francisco apartment complex who begin to notice strange goings-on in their building,

Fiery Red-Head Hayward Is TCM's Star of the Month

Susan Hayward. Susan Hayward movies: TCM Star of the Month Fiery redhead Susan Hayward it Turner Classic Movies' Star of the Month in Sept. 2015. The five-time Best Actress Oscar nominee – like Ida Lupino, a would-be Bette Davis that only sporadically landed roles to match the verve of her thespian prowess – was initially a minor Warner Bros. contract player who went on to become a Paramount second lead in the early '40s, a Universal leading lady in the late '40s, and a 20th Century Fox star in the early '50s. TCM will be presenting only three Susan Hayward premieres, all from her Fox era. Unfortunately, her Paramount and Universal work – e.g., Among the Living, Sis Hopkins, And Now Tomorrow, The Saxon Charm – which remains mostly unavailable (in quality prints), will remain unavailable this month. Highlights of the evening include: Adam Had Four Sons (1941), a sentimental but surprisingly

Two-Time Oscar Winner Cooper on TCM: Pro-War 'York' and Eastwood-Narrated Doc

Gary Cooper movies on TCM: Cooper at his best and at his weakest Gary Cooper is Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” star today, Aug. 30, '15. Unfortunately, TCM isn't showing any Cooper movie premiere – despite the fact that most of his Paramount movies of the '20s and '30s remain unavailable. This evening's features are Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), Sergeant York (1941), and Love in the Afternoon (1957). Mr. Deeds Goes to Town solidified Gary Cooper's stardom and helped to make Jean Arthur Columbia's top female star. The film is a tad overlong and, like every Frank Capra movie, it's also highly sentimental. What saves it from the Hell of Good Intentions is the acting of the two leads – Cooper and Arthur are both excellent – and of several supporting players. Directed by Howard Hawks, the jingoistic, pro-war Sergeant York was a huge box office hit, eventually earning Academy Award nominations in several categories,

U.N.C.L.E.: Will International Moviegoers Save WB's Domestic Box Office Flop?

'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' 2015: Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' movie is a domestic box office bomb: Will it be saved by international filmgoers? Directed by Sherlock Holmes' Guy Ritchie and toplining Man of Steel star Henry Cavill and The Lone Ranger costar Armie Hammer, the Warner Bros. release The Man from U.N.C.L.E. has been a domestic box office disaster, performing about 25 percent below – already quite modest – expectations. (See also: “'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Movie: Bigger Box Office Flop Than Expected.”) This past weekend, the $80 million-budget The Man from U.N.C.L.E. collected a meager $13.42 million from 3,638 North American theaters, averaging $3,689 per site. After five days out, the big-screen reboot of the popular 1960s television series starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum has taken in a mere $16.77 million. For comparison's sake:

WB Drops Another Bomb: 'U.N.C.L.E.' Flops Disastrously in North America

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' box office: Bigger domestic flop than expected? Before I address the box office debacle of Warner Bros.' The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I'd like remark upon the fact that 2015 has been a notable year at the North American box office. That's when the dinosaurs of Jurassic World smashed Hulk and his fellow Halloween-costumed Marvel superheroes of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And smashed them good: $636.73 million vs. $457.52 million. (See also: 'Jurassic World' beating 'The Avengers' worldwide and domestically?) At least in part for sentimental (or just downright morbid) reasons – Paul Walker's death in a car accident in late 2013 – Furious 7 has become by far the highest-grossing The Fast and the Furious movie in the U.S. and Canada: $351.03 million.

Long Before Day-Lewis, Oscar-Nominated Actor Played Lincoln: TCM 'Stars' Series Continues

Raymond Massey ca. 1940. Raymond Massey movies: From Lincoln to Boris Karloff Though hardly remembered today, the Toronto-born Raymond Massey was a top supporting player – and sometime lead – in both British and American movies from the early '30s all the way to the early '60s. During that period, Massey was featured in nearly 50 films. Turner Classic Movies generally selects the same old MGM / Rko / Warner Bros. stars for its annual “Summer Under the Stars” series. For that reason, it's great to see someone like Raymond Massey – who was with Warners in the '40s – be the focus of a whole day: Sat., Aug. 8, '15. (See TCM's Raymond Massey movie schedule further below.) Admittedly, despite his prestige – his stage credits included the title role in the short-lived 1931 Broadway production of Hamlet – the quality of Massey's performances varied wildly. Sometimes he could be quite effective; most of the time, however, he was an unabashed scenery chewer,

Troll Is Returning as an Animated Feature and Series

  • Cinelinx
It looks like Troll is the latest classic film to get the remake/reboot treatment, as today brings word of an animated revival on both the big and small screens.  Come inside to learn more! 

There's a new wizard in town!  Sort of.  Sc Films International, a London-based company, is in pre-production for a new project which will reprise 'Troll', a 1986 cult classic.  It is to be produced as an animated film and television series titled Troll: The Rise of Harry Potter, Jr.  However, do not confuse this with the J.K.
