A more enlightening title than “Kirstie,” frankly, would be “Seen Better Days,” which at least would capture the depressing sensation associated with watching this mini-“Must-See TV” reunion featuring Kirstie Alley, “Cheers” co-star Rhea Perlman and “Seinfeld’s” Michael Richards. Sparing her much research for the role, Alley plays an aging, Tony-award-winning stage diva who, with one unexpected knock at the door, meets the aw-shucks 26-year-old son she gave up at birth. Basically, think “All About Eve,” if it were remade as a woefully broad TV Land sitcom, rife with jokes about promiscuity, ego and of course, weight.
Alley’s Maddie and her pompous co-star (played by guest Christopher McDonald) have just finished taking curtain calls in a play titled “Worst Case Scenario” (presumably the writers possess a sense of irony) when Arlo (Eric Petersen) shows up at the actress’s Manhattan high-rise, wanting to meet his biological mom. She is flanked, »

About six months ago it was announced that director James Merendino would make a sequel to his classic cult film Slc Punk. The director has raised some money for the project, and he plans to start shooting it soon in Salt Lake City, Ut. The movie is called Slc Punk 2: Punk's Dead, and according to the director most of the original cast will be returning to reprise their roles. Some of those actors include Matthew Lillard, Annabeth Gish, Devon Sawa, Til Schweiger, Chris McDonald, and Michael A. Goorjian.
In a recent article in Utah's City Weekly, there are some plot details for the film that says the story will revolve around a new character, who is the child of Heroin Bob and Trish. Merendino went into a little more detail saying, “It’s about him interacting in this world with a much sharper point of view than even Stevo. »

Earlier this year we learned there’s going to be a sequel to the 1999 cult film Slc Punk! And not only did the fans immediately begin pogoing with delight, but a lot of them took to Change.org to petition Jason Segel‘s return as the character Mike. Unfortunately, that effort was not successful — Segel is not interested in even a cameo and the part is being recast — but hopefully more lovers of Stevo, Heroin Bob, Trish and John the Mod will be interested in helping to fund this new movie, titled Punk’s Dead. Yep, just like a middle-class suburban teen with expensive bondage pants pretending to be a squatter and panhandling for change in NYC’s Tompkins Square Park, these rich Hollywood players are hitting the curb and begging for money. Just kidding (sort of). This isn’t another time to debate the idea of crowdfunding and what tax bracket is allowed to start a »

"We have a great cast that hasn't been announced yet..." promised director Baltasar Kormakur of his upcoming Everest movie when Empire had cause to speak to him recently. Well, the cat seems to be out of the bag, with reports this morning that Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Hawkes and Jason Clarke are all in talks to don climbing gear and head for Nepal.The film has been in development for some time, with Christian Bale at one time casually attached. "We don't have him anymore; he went to do Moses (Ridley Scott's Exodus) instead, which sucked," Kormakur told us. But Bale's departure led to a rethink which might ultimately affect Everest for the better. "I decided to go for a more ensemble version of the story," says the director. Hence, presumably, the current news.That story is of the 1996 events, made famous by Jon Krakauer's book Into Thin Air »

That one "Man of Steel" trailer has sure left a mark on pop culture, hasn't it? Rightfully so, as it's still as powerful and perfect a trailer today as it was when it first debuted. Mash-ups and edits have been popping up all over the place, like this one done in Minecraft. This new one comes from the Hub Network and edits footage from the 54 episodes of "Superman: The Animated Series" into a near shot-for-shot remake of the film's trailer. But here's the kicker: it got original voice actors Tim Daly and Dana Delany to reprise their roles as Superman and Lois Lane. And Christopher McDonald came back to play Jor-El, as did Mike Farrell return to voice Jonathan Kent. Come on, how awesome is that?
Check out the animated trailer below, and keep getting psyched for "Man of Steel," which opens this Friday!
