10 Things You Didn’t Know About The Iron Sheik

21 March 2015 12:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Depending on the age of the wrestling fan The Iron Sheik is either known primarily as the man who took the loss that began Hulkamania or as the funny old lunatic who delivers routine vulgarities in 140 characters or less. Born in Iran as Hossein Khosrow Ali Vaziri this WWE Hall of Famer has reinvented himself to the current generation in the unlikeliest of ways: Twitter.

Before The Sheik was a social media sensation he was carving out his legacy in the squared circle. He was one of WWE’s top stars during the boom of the 1980s and even held the top title for one month. The Sheik’s anti-American gimmick and his real-life toughness made him more than memorable.

As much as he could connect in a heelish way with an audience the real Sheik might just be more outlandish than the character who stepped into the ring. »

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff And More Join James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

18 March 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One the perks of being a producer-director-writer-actor is the sheer quantity of circles that the multi-hyphenate tag permits you entry into. For James Franco, this means he meets a lot of people. Moreso than any other non-celebrity might in a regular day. By that rationale, it’s probably a lot easier to cast movies seeing as he knows everybody. Applying that conclusion to today’s piece of news on his latest effort, In Dubious Battle seems to stick; he really does know everybody because everybody’s in the movie.

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff, Analeigh Tipton, Ashley Greene and Ahna O’Reilly are the latest additions to a cast that’s already bulging with starry names. This new roster join Nat Wolff, who signed up two days ago, and the previously-announced Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Danny McBride, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Franco himself.

18 March 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With principal photography now underway, it has been announced that Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Zach Braff (Garden State), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Ashley Greene (Twilight) and Ahna O’Reilly (The Help) have joined the cast of James Franco’s John Steinbeck adaptation In Dubious Battle.

The five new additions join an all-star cast alongside Franco, Selena Gomez (Hotel Transylvania), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Robert Duvall (The Judge), Ed Harris (Snowpiercer), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and John Savage (The Deer Hunter).

Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man— all themes which continue to be relevant today. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures »

Watch the trailer for ‘Lazer Team’, a record-breaking, crowd-funded film

17 March 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Zach Braff was stealing all the headlines for his film Wish You Were Here, the real record breaking film was the team behind the popular YouTube series Red vs. Blue, Rooster Teeth. That webseries is one of the longest running ever, with 13 seasons to its name, but until now the Austin-based production company has never gone for broke and made a full feature.

They put a request to make their feature film Lazer Team on Indiegogo and raised $2.4 million from over 37,000 individual backers. Now the film has a trailer, and though it doesn’t have the star power of Braff or the equally successful crowd-funded Veronica Mars movie, it’s chock full of humor and special effects worth the price tag.

Here’s the full synopsis via their original Indiegogo listing:

In the late 1970’s, the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence project received a one time signal from outer space. »

Martin Scorsese is one of the most iconic directors of all time. He created such groundbreaking films like Taxi Driver and Gangs of New York. Yet it took him eight Oscar nominations, five Best Director nominations alone, until he finally received the Best Director Academy Award in 2006 for the film The Departed. Let's look back at the film that finally landed Scorese the gold.

Scorsese is one of those directors that has been creating for generations. He's the known for creating and depicting the worst antiheroes that you can't help but like and can't stop watching. You follow them on their twisted journeys and sometimes untimely demises, all while that same Rolling Stone song (“Gimme Shelter”) plays in the background. Your parents loved him, you love him, and I'm sure your children will or already do love him. There's always one particular movie of his that you discover that makes »
