25 years ago today: ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ opened in theaters

14 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

25 years ago today, audiences first saw Kevin Costner’s turn as Robin Hood on the big screen. It was on June 14, 1991 that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves opened in theaters. Facing off against Costner’s heroic outlaw was Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, just three years after he made his first movie appearance in a role that would become a new classic villain, Hans Gruber in Die Hard. Rickman and Morgan Freeman got critical approval for their performances. Costner and Christian Slater, not so much. Both were nominated for Golden Raspberry Awards for Robin Hood, for Worst Actor and Worst Supporting Actor, respectively. Costner “won” his award, while Slater “lost” to Dan Ackroyd in Nothing but Trouble. Also part of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ legacy: “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You.” Believe it or not, the theme ballad that Bryan Adams bleated out for this movie earned him an Oscar nomination. But Raspberries or no Raspberries, Oscars or no Oscars, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves found its audience. It was the second-highest grossing movie of 1991, beaten only by Terminator 2: Judgement Day. And it was viewed countless times on VHS for years after that. Other notable June 14 happenings in pop culture history: • 1940: Jimmy Stewart film The Mortal Storm opened in theaters. • 1958: The indoor Alice in Wonderland ride opened next to the Mad Tea Party teacups ride in Disneyland. It was also the day the Columbia Sailing Ship first took passengers around Tom Sawyer Island. • 1959: The Matterhorn Bobsleds, Submarine Voyage, and the Monorail opened at Disneyland. Over 2,000 celebrities, members of the press, and dignitaries attended, including Vice President Richard Nixon. • 1965: Paul McCartney recorded the song “Yesterday” at what is now known as Abbey Road Studios in London. McCartney recorded it without the rest of the group, just with a string quartet, his vocals, and an acoustic guitar, making it essentially the first solo performance by the band. He recorded the song in two takes. • 1969: John Lennon and Yoko Ono pre-recorded an interview with David Frost that would air on July 10 that year. Lennon said in the interview, “We're trying to sell peace, like a product, you know, and sell it like people sell soap or soft drinks.” • 1970: Eric Clapton’s new band, Derek and the Dominos, gave their first live performance, at London’s Lyceum Theatre. • 1972: Simon & Garfunkel reunited to perform “Bridge Over Troubled Water” at a fundraising concert for presidential candidate George McGovern at New York’s Madison Square Garden. • 1980: The Pretenders fired bassist Pete Farndon, whose drug use had led to an increasingly strained relationship with his bandmates.  • 1980: Billy Joel began six weeks atop the Billboard album chart with Glass Houses. • 1985: Family Feud, which had debuted in 1976, aired its final episode on ABC until CBS re-launched the game show in 1988. • 1989: The game Tetris was released for Game Boy in Japan. A North American release followed in July. • 1990: CBS, which had been the national broadcaster for the NBA since 1973, televised an NBA game for the final time. It was Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Detroit Pistons and Portland Trail Blazers. • 1996: Jim Carrey movie The Cable Guy opened in U.S. and Canadian theaters. • 2002: The Bourne Identity and the Sarah Michelle Gellar Scooby-Doo movie opened in theaters. • 2003: Helen Mirren had the order of Dame bestowed upon her when Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II published the list of those she’d chosen to promote to the Order of the British Empire. Three years later, Mirren portrayed Elizabeth II on film in The Queen. Sting and 007 actor Roger Moore were also conferred with the title of “Sir” on this day. • 2011: Andy Grammer released his self-titled debut studio album. Birthdays: Juno writer Diablo Cody (turns 38 today), singer Boy George (55), Reign actor Torrance Coombs (33), Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale (27), actor-motivational speaker J.R. Martinez (33), Glee actor Kevin McHale (28), Falling Skies actor Will Patton (62), Austin Powers director Jay Roach (59), Spy Kids actor Daryl Sabara (24), Blindspot actor Sullivan Stapleton (39) »

X-Men: Apocalypse - the deleted scenes & unused ideas

What went on at that mall? Why was Jubilee barely in it? Here’s some info about the ditched ideas from X-Men: Apocalypse...

This article contains spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Clocking in at 2 hours and 27 minutes, X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t exactly a short movie. With that in mind, you might be surprised to learn that director Bryan Singer left a fair chunk of material on the editing room floor. Although there was no Rogue Cut-sized narrative strand cut out this time, writer/producer Simon Kinberg has already told Collider that roughly 13 minutes were chopped duing the editing process.

There’s also a little bit on information floating around regarding earlier versions of the film’s script, and how Apocalypse could have played out differently if other ideas had been kept in. Here’s our roundup of everything that didn’t make it into the movie...

DJ World: Episode Two Is Here And It’s Hilarious

27 May 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this week, funnyman Dillon Francis revealed his latest comedy effort DJ World, a seven episode web series making a mockery of mainstream DJ culture. The faux reality TV series also features the familiar faces of Getter and pal Nick Colletti, who have each taken on various DJ personas to hilarious effect.

While the first episode served as a general overview of what was to follow, episode two delves into the character of Ronnie Ferrari (portrayed by Getter), who seems to be taking a few cues from Boy George’s signature flamboyant appearance. The one minute long instalment focuses on developing Ferrari’s character as Getter riffs on his homosexual tendencies.

If episode two serves as an indication for how the rest of DJ World will play out, we can expect each episode to focus on one of the six DJ characters portrayed by Dillon Francis and friends.

20th Century Fox has released these super fun Mutant Mock-up Album Covers based on popular 80s hit albums.  But with a twist – they feature mutants from the upcoming X-men: Apocalypse instead. Since the film takes place in the 80's it makes sense that they do these.

Optic Visor at Night (Sunglasses at Night, Corey Hart)

School of the Telepathic Mind (Church of the Poison Mind, Boy George)

Let's Bamf (Let’s Dance, Mr. David Bowie)

Melissa Joan Hart Gets an Emotional Reading in First Look at New Season of Hollywood Medium

9 May 2016 11:43 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

At its debut in January of this year, the E! series Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry became the network’s most-watched unscripted series launch in three years, excluding spinoffs, in terms of total viewers. We would assume that E! is foreseeing, so to speak, similar success when the show returns for Season 2 on Aug. 16. In Season 2 of Hollywood Medium, the 20-year-old clairvoyant sees even more celebrities than he did in Season 1 — when he read for the likes of Amber Rose, Jaime Pressly, Boy George, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Margaret Cho. This time, without any prior knowledge of who he … Continue reading →

On Episode 11 of Project Runway All Stars, the remaining five designers visited with artists at a New York City gallery as inspiration for a wearable art avant-garde look. While I don?t necessarily think any of the designers hit it out of the park on this challenge (which is a shame because legendary Boy George was there to see the show), some did better than others. Here is my ranking of the looks from worst to best. Tell me which look you liked the best in the comments. »

How we made The Tube

Jools Holland: ‘When Rik Mayall vomited into a camera, one man in Northampton was so appalled he called the police.’

Tyne Tees Television were looking for presenters for this new pop show. I did my audition with Paula Yates and it was chaotic. Paula interviewed a youth and ended up getting so cross she tried to slap him. I interviewed someone who was supposed to be dead and dragged him across the floor. The TV people said that we were hopeless but that they couldn’t stop watching us.

After filming we all stayed in the same Newcastle hotel. Ian Dury, Chaka Khan... it was full-on

Jarvis Cocker was driven to the audition by his mum. Boy George wore a full wedding dress.
