Tom Sizemore has taken to crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise funds for his passion project An Honest Thief, a noir-ish thriller that the Heat and Saving Private Ryan actor is putting together as a starring vehicle. It’s his first film as a producer and a step toward rebuilding his up-and-down career following a public relapse in January, but Sizemore says he has refocused his sights on sobriety and is optimistic. “I want to get back,” he said over the phone Wednesday. “I want to make something I look forward to.”
An Honest Thief is written by the actor’s younger brother Aaron Sizemore and tracks three outcasts who plot to steal a prized baseball card collection from a local pawnbroker. Belgian helmer Giorgio Serafini (Gente Di Mare) is attached to direct the pic, which is set in Sizemore’s hometown of Detroit and will film on location. Sizemore will play Danny St. »

Sharing a Netflix account with a friend—or “borrowing” theirs—and looking for a way to avoid awkward discussions about that season of Gossip Girl you watched five times? Good news: The streaming service will now let you hide your viewing activity.
Netflix has introduced a new feature that allows subscribers to delete items from their viewing history. The tool should improve Netflix’s suggestions for viewers so that the occasional half-watched 1980s comedy or recent foreign documentary can no longer influence the films and television shows that Netflix promotes. Though hopefully it will continue to title these suggestions with »

Nick wades into another stack of DVD releases, including 80s action epic Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous, and lots more besides...
"Whatever happened to Fred Ward?" is a line surely on the tip of most people’s tongues. Apparently, the star of Tremors and The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult has mostly been doing TV work over the last few years, though you’ll almost certainly remember him as the charismatic star of 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. No? Well, shame on you, because Remo, making a welcome Blu-Ray debut, leads this month’s action-packed, erm, action special.
If you weren’t one of the lucky few that grew up with the preposterous movie otherwise known as Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous punctuating their childhood, we’ll fill you in. Riding on the success of the Rambo films (essentially, the only tenuous link being the vaguely similar name), Bond director »

It’s easy to think you know an actor through the characters that they play, or even to assume you know something about an actor by the sheer fact that they’re an actor. Particularly when someone is often type-cast, it can sometimes be hard to swallow when you find out something that changes how you see a big name. For instance, when a huge star like Tom Cruise became an insane scientologist, or when you find out that awesome badass action-star Vin Diesel has been an avid Dungeons and Dragons fan for 20 years, or even the knowledge that Pam and Jim aren’t a couple in real life (weep), can change your perspective on an actor you took for granted as their character(s).
Sometimes our favourite actors’ rise to fame has been shaky, unintended, or even baffling, such as Danny Trejo’s movement from drug counselor to world-class badass. »

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 »

We've been talking about the upcoming thrill-kill L.A. Slasher for a while now, and the time for words has come to an end. Suit up, Dreadies, as the teaser trailer is here, and we cannot wait for the mayhem to come. Check it out.
The film stars Danny Trejo (Machete), Mischa Barton (“The O.C.”), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Riddick), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), Drake Bell (“Drake & Josh”), Brooke Hogan (“Hogan Knows Best”), Tori Black (Not Another Celebrity Movie), and Marisa Lauren (“Superhero Movie”) with the voice of Andy Dick (“NewsRadio”) as the "L.A. Slasher."

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 »
