George C Wolfe Will Direct Film Adaptation Of Nilo Cruz’s Broadway Hit Play 'Anna In The Tropics'

10 December 2013 7:42 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

George C Wolfe has come on board to direct Mankind Entertainment’s adaptation of playwright Nilo Cruz’s Broadway hit Anna In The Tropics.  The play had its Broadway berth in 2003, and starred Jimmy Smits, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Priscilla Lopez, John Ortiz, Vanessa Aspillaga, Victor Argo and David Zayas.  Playwright Cruz's play is set in a Cuban-American cigar factory in 1929. The factory employs "lectors" to entertain and educate the factory workers, and a new lector who reads aloud from Anna Karenina becomes "a catalyst in the lives of his avid listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics, and the American dream prove a volatile combination."  No casting yet but filming is scheduled »

50 great famous last words from the movies

Odd List Ryan Lambie 4 Oct 2013 - 06:41

They're funny, they're sad, they're weird. Here are 50 famous last words from characters in the movies...

Please Note: There are potential spoilers ahead. Check the name of the film, and if you haven't seen it, don't read the entry!

As someone famous probably once said, “We’ve all gotta go sometime,” and if we’re going to die, we might as well do so with a witticism or a memorable line rather than a scream and a cry for mother. Which is the subject of this lengthy but far from definitive list: the memorable things movie characters have uttered shortly (not necessarily immediately) before they’re about to meet their maker.

Some of these last words are long, tear-jerking monologues. Others amount to little more than a word or two. But all of them, in our estimation, are worthy of mention, and one »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1990

Odd List Simon Brew Ryan Lambie 19 Sep 2013 - 07:20

From dramas to action and everything in between, here's our pick of 20 underrated films from 1990...

Think back to the big films of 1990, and you'll probably immediately come up with things like Ghost, the year's top-grossing film, or maybe Home Alone, which made a star out of the young Macaulay Culkin.

If you're into sci-fi or action, you might pluck Total Recall, Back To The Future Part III or even Die Hard 2 out of your memory banks. But what about all those movies that didn't make it into the year's top 10 ranking films? As ever, there's a huge number of duds and forgettable flops, but there were plenty of films that were wrongly overlooked, too.

That's where this list comes in, which aims to shed a bit of light on 20 films that were either unfairly overlooked by audiences at the time, or »

A Walken Legend: Christopher’s Most Memorable Performances

14 April 2013 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s one of cinemas most intense performers and one of my all-time favourite movie icons, but Oscar-winner Christopher Walken has more in his locker than a menacing thousand-yard stare and gravity-defying hair-do. This week sees the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Martin McDonagh’s brilliant black comedy, Seven Psychopaths, in which Walken steals the show from under the nose of Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, as a loveable dog-napping petty crook, devoted pal and husband.

Over his 60 year career, which currently features over 12o credits, he’s featured in superhero blockbuster Batman Returns, gothic horror Sleepy Hollow; taken on suave British super spy 007 in A View To A Kill; chased rodents and marsupials in family favourites, Mousehunt and Kangaroo Jack, and tripped the light fantastic in Fatboy Slim’s memorable music video for Weapon Of Choice. Now Thn has picked out some of our favourite, and »
