Top 10 dogs on filmTop 10 dogs on filmAmanda Wood8/26/2016 10:00:00 Am
We humans have been sharing the silver screen with all manner of beasts for as long as movies have existed. But no animal quite manages to capture our hearts and our cameras as much as the good old-fashioned pet dog. Dogs have played major and minor characters in practically every genre, their loyalty and selflessness making them ideal sidekicks and heroes.
Today is National Dog Day, so here at Cineplex we're in full celebration mode. As you might have guessed, we're big on dogs here, so this is undoubtedly one of the most exciting days of the year for us. There are no shortage of amazing, adorable, and impressive dogs in movies, so we obviously had to mention some of our favourites to commemorate the day.
There are far too many movie dogs to include in this list, so »

“The minute I suggested it to dad, he was in,” Nimoy recalls in an exclusive clip. “That led me on a journey of self discovery about my relationship with my father.”
The clip includes multiple photos of the two in costume and in real life. The son bears more than a passing resemblance to his father, both physically and vocally.
The film will be released nationwide and on VOD by Gravitas Ventures on Sept. 9 — one day after the official 50th anniversary of the first network broadcast of “Star Trek” — and examines the phenomenon of the character Spock and the man behind the character.
Adam Nimoy began working on the film with his father in late 2014 before he passed away on Feb. 27, 2015. The doc »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.Writer and comedian Billy Domineau has stumbled into viral fame after posting a Seinfeld spec script that imagines how its well-known sitcom characters would have reacted to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The 44-page episode, titled "The Twin Towers," perfectly channels what Domineau sees as the "nihilistic, no-hugging-no-learning nature of the show" by focusing on how the core characters each react selfishly to the national catastrophe: Jerry develops a paranoia about dust, Elaine tries to break up with a survivor she's seeing, George masquerades as a first responder, and Kramer discovers »

With summer camp season in full swing, One Way Static Records has picked the perfect time to announce their vinyl and cassette soundtrack of 1981's The Burning:
Press Release: One Way Static Records is excited to bring you their latest release: Rick Wakeman’S iconic motion picture soundtrack for the 1981 slasher-classic The Burning. Available on both vinyl & cassette.

There's no curbing this. Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show is finally returning to HBO for a ninth season! We're feeling pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good. David put the show on hiatus after the eighth season in 2011, leaving Curb Your Enthusiasm effectively cancelled.
Back in November, we reported HBO was ready to bring back Curb Your Enthusiasm anytime the Seinfeld co-creator (and inspiration for Jason Alexander's George Costanza) was ready. Last week we heard the star was considering it. David stars in the sitcom as a semi-fictional version himself. The Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show cast also includes Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, and Susie Essman.

Four minutes into “All the Way,” the actor Bryan Cranston, playing Lyndon B. Johnson, walks into the Oval Office. The camera cuts back and forth between the 36th president’s point of view and a tight shot of his face as he slowly moves through the room, which is filled with the belongings of the recently dead John F. Kennedy. It’s Johnson’s first time entering the room as president. The scene is silent. For a full minute, it’s just Cranston, a camera, and some music. It’s a powerful moment, one that wasn’t in the Broadway version of “All the Way,” which also starred Cranston, and was, like the HBO original movie premiering May 21, written by Robert Schenkkan.
“You’d have a hard time making that work onstage,” says Schenkkan. “It’s a film moment. That’s what I looked to create.”

30 years ago today, Navy fighter pilot hotshots Maverick, Iceman, and Goose first flew across big screens around the world. It was on May 16, 1986 that Top Gun opened in theaters. Already well on his way to becoming a household name thanks to 1983’s Risky Business, Tom Cruise became a certified movie star with the release of Top Gun. It was also the first hit for director Tony Scott, who went on to direct other action flicks and thrillers like Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, and Déjà Vu (which reunited him with Top Gun star Val Kilmer) before his death in 2012. Top Gun, a slick, upbeat, Reagan-era ode to masculinity, boasted a memorable soundtrack (with Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”), impressive dogfights, an endlessly quotable though often goofy script, and, upon its release, immediate box office success. It became the highest grossing movie of 1986. Also on this day, »

It’s tough to love TV, and there’s no tougher time than late spring, when the several waves of broadcast network cancellations herald the arrival of Upfronts. I have a few thoughts on the most recent round of TV cancellations, spinoffs and renewals:
Among the cancellations announced in recent days: “The Grinder,” “Grandfathered,” “Galavant,” “The Family,” “Bordertown,” “Second Chance,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Nashville,” “Castle” and “Containment.” For me, the toughest losses were “Agent Carter” and “The Grinder.” More on the former in a moment, but I have a few thoughts on the latter. “The Grinder” was something of an odd duck, and I do get that it was a niche show (hence its low ratings and Fox’s desire to axe it). But given that it was a knowledgeable and meta-obsessed show that lovingly mocked TV cliches, that particular niche was designed to appeal to TV nerds like me. »

It's gold, Jerry. A video recently made by comedy site Break.com imagines what it would be like if Bernie Sanders had played George Costanza on the iconic TV sitcom Seinfeld. Footage of the presidential candidate speaking is transposed onto the character played by Jason Alexander. The video is a little longer than two minutes and features numerous scenes from Seinfeld. The bit is even funnier when it's realized that Seinfeld co-creator Larry David has been playing Sanders lately on Saturday Night Live. Sanders himself had a small cameo on SNL, appearing on screen with David in a February

It was nothing, if not bittersweet. Seinfeld ran for nine celebrated seasons on NBC before the May 14, 1998 TV series finale. According to Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine Benes), the lack of onscreen sentiment in the controversial capper to the beloved sitcom, belies the mood on set. In an interview with People's Jess Cagle, the actress categorizes the atmosphere as "bittersweet," "sentimental," and "wrenching." Watch it, below.
The two-part Seinfeld TV series finale, entitled, "The Finale," brought the series to a total of 180 episodes. In addition to the Seinfeld main cast of Jerry Seinfeld, Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards, the final two episodes featured recurring cast members including Wayne Knight, Jerry Stiller, Estelle Harris, Liz Sheridan, Barney Martin, Ian Abercrombie, and more, for a total of 60 guest stars.

Three years after first being put into development, Ld Entertainment's Jacob's Ladder is finally moving in the right direction. Deadline reports that Michael Ealy has signed on to star, reuniting with The Perfect Guy director David M. Rosenthal. Principal photography is now set to begin in mid-May, although no release date has been given at this time.
The original Jacob's Ladder starred Tim Robbins as a Vietnam veteran who suffers from bizarre hallucinations while trying to uncover clues about his checkered past. The original movie also starred Elizabeth Peña, Danny Aiello, Matt Craven, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Jason Alexander, Patricia Kalember, Eriq La Salle and Ving Rhames, with Adrian Lyne directing. This remake will be a modern-day take on the story, focusing on two brothers.
“Tonight we honor Peter Grad, who passed away suddenly last summer,” began David Hyde Pierce on Wednesday at the final “A Night at Sardi’s” benefit — founded by Laurie Burrows (daughter of playwright Abe Burrows) and her late husband Grad (an Mtm Television executive) 23 years prior, to support the Alzheimer’s Association. “His example as a charitable and loving man inspires us and lives with any of us who ever came in contact with him. Many of his jokes live with us too, and for that, we will never forgive him.”
What will also clearly live on is the “A Night at Sardi’s” legacy, evidenced by the loyal alum from Peter Gallagher to Jason Alexander to Eric McCormack — “No one had ever heard of me when this first began!” McCormack said — who returned to reenact their favorite numbers, which helped to generate $28 million over the 23 years, for the show »
