Wednesday night’s premiere of Lionsgate-Pantelion’s “Cantinflas” at the Tcl Chinese offered a fine sense of Hollywood history.
The biopic, which opens Friday, debuted at the same location where the iconic Mexican actor placed his hand and footprints in 1960 for the “Pepe” premiere. Oscar Jaenada was more than happy to explore the past.

On August 24th, a beautiful Sunday evening, a line formed outside of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The crowd was full of diverse characters, but we all had one thing in common: we have a strong love of horror, and music. So there I was, about to enter Johnny Ramones 10th Anniversary Tribute, and I was ready to enjoy a memorable experience.
For those who are not familiar with the venue, it is actually a cemetery. It is also the final resting place of many celebrities, including Johnny Ramone himself. Often there are movie screenings there, and you are allowed to view the film picnic style, with blankets, chairs, and coolers. In other words, it’s a really cool way to watch a movie.
Soon after everyone entered the premises, many claimed seats on the lawn, and others ventured into the mausoleum to observe some very awesome horror goodies from the »
With nearly 3,000 fans in attendance, Dread Central hit this past Sunday’s 10th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA, and we got an eye and earful. Read on for our report, photo gallery, and a video clip from the event.
The show was hosted by musician/filmmaker Rob Zombie and his band, who played a blistering five-song set of Ramones tunes set inside the facility’s Masonic Temple, which included "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Rock 'n' Roll High School," "Beat on the Brat," "Lobotomy," and Motörhead's tribute song to the same, "R.A.M.O.N.E.S."
With the show simulcast on the cemetery’s mausoleum wall to the throng of music fans who picnicked on the grass outside, Zombie’s set was followed by a jam session made up of guitarist Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, singer Billy Idol, »

When the recent news broke that Alexa Vega will play a recurring character on the upcoming season of country music soap Nashville, now seemed like a perfect time to revisit the original Spy Kids. I tend to picture Vega as she appeared in the Robert Rodriguez film, but she has grown much since then. She's even married... twice.
In 2001, she and co-star Daryl Sabara (whose first role was as Murphy's baby on '90s cultural touchstone, Murphy Brown) played Carmen and Juni Cortez, troubled private-school kids. Their parents Ingrid (Carla Gugino, Karen Sisco, Sucker Punch) and Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) are consultants who have not yet admitted to the children that they used to be secret agents (who met cute at the Hotel Belen, better known as the Omni Hotel downtown).

National Dog Day was celebrated on Tuesday, with many celebrities tweeting out photos of their dogs.
National Dog Day
Founded by Colleen Paige in 2004, National Dog Day celebrates man’s best friend and was created to help raise awareness to stop puppy mills and encourage adopting dogs.
“I want this to be a day to encourage dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure – to help abolish puppy mills and end breed specific legislation so we can create a world where all dogs (and every animal) can live a happy, save and ‘abuse-free life,’” Paige states on the National Dog Day official website.
National Dog Day quickly took over Twitter, and many celebrities took part in the celebration, sharing photos of their dogs.

A trailer for Martin Owen's horror satire 'L.A. Slasher' has arrived bringing with it slickness, a classic 80's tune and an Andy Dick voiceover. 'Death to Reality' cries out the new trailer so much so that you could be mistaken to think that that is the actual title to the feature from writer/director Owen. 'L.A. Slasher' stars Mischa Barton ('Apartment 1303'), Dave Bautista, Marisa Lauren, Danny Trejo ('VANish'), Abigail Wright, Drake Bell, Andy Dick, Brooke Hogan, Eric Roberts, Frank Collison, Elizabeth Morris, Korrina Rico and hottie Tori Black (below). And even though the trailer has a souped-up music video feel to it hopefully the accompanying synopsis below will help clear things up a bit. »
With the long-awaited sequel to Sin City about to hit cinemas (our review is here), Robert Rodriguez has been discussing his other projects. Namely, the formation of El Rey (‘the king’ in English) – his eight-month-old television network aimed at Latino males.
When offered the opportunity to start his own network, Rodriguez opted to take matters into his own hands on a regular query he’s been asked throughout his career.
"People have always asked me, ‘How do we get to Latinos' wallets?"” the director lamented. "Well, you've got to get them here (touches his heart). You have to give them characters to fall in love with. It was never just about ‘putting Latinos in more shows.’"
As well as his own series From Dusk Til Dawn (based on his own film), Rodriguez hinted at other possibilities. When asked if »
Martin Owen’s L.A. Slasher has done an excellent job establishing a good sized buzz for itself, with convention appearances, viral marketing and the promise of bringing the “death to reality TV”, which sounds like one excellent plan to me. While just the synopsis alone is enough to turn most horror fans on, today the debut trailer for the horror satire on all things plastic dropped and I must say, it looks like one fun ride. Check it out!
“a biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous, L.A. Slasher explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the »

When Bette Davis coined the phrase “Old age is no place for sissies,” she may as well have been describing the plot of “The Expendables 3.” Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, the ensemble film features a cast of mature action vets who aren’t about to trade in their bullets for bifocals just yet. As the third entry in the popular franchise explodes into theaters on August 15, here’s a look at 12 films starring some of the toughest seniors in cinema.
Continuing his late-career reinvention as a post-middle aged action hero, Liam Neeson plays a federal air marshal who receives a series of threatening texts during a transatlantic flight. Trapping the 62-year old star in a confined location proved a wise decision as the modestly-budgeted thriller opened at No. 1 in the U.S. and earned over $200 million worldwide.
Arriving on September 26, this feature adaptation of the »

Discovery’s annual chum-n-fun Shark Week programming stunt has reeled in slightly fewer viewers this year, yet delivered record-setting numbers in a couple key demographics.
Sunday’s opener hooked an average of 3.6 million viewers, down 10 percent from 2013. Specifically, Air Jaws: Fin of Fury at 8 p.m. had 3.3 million viewers, while 9 p.m.’s Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine had 3.8 million viewers. Among a couple of key demos like 18-49 and 25-54, however, the shows represented record highs—marking the biggest ratings in the 27-year history of Shark Week, which is good enough for Discovery to take a victory lap. »

20th Century Fox has released a new The Book of Life trailer. Produced by Guillermo Del Toro and directed by Jorge Gutierrez, the film revolves around three childhood friends—Manolo (Diego Luna), Maria (Zoe Saldana), and Joaquin (Channing Tatum)—who find themselves in a love triangle as the gods wager on who will win Maria’s heart. Manolo is the central character of the story, as he dreams of breaking his family tradition of bullfighting to become a guitar player. Over the course of the fantastical story, audiences are taken to The Land of the Living, the Land of the Remembered, and the Land of the Forgotten as Manolo seeks to live a complete and fulfilling life that is remembered by the living. The movie continues to look absolutely gorgeous, and I'm curious to see if the plot and characters can match the visuals. Hit the jump for the new The Book of Life trailer, »
