Before They Were Famous: Juliette Lewis in 'Christmas Vacation'

25 December 2012 7:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Juliette Lewis has pretty much mastered the part of the slightly crazy, not so classy chick we all wish was our Bff (most of the time, anyway).

From Luke Wilson's sexually, uh, liberated wife in "Old School" to the seriously blood-splattered Mallory Knox in "Natural Born Killers," she's proven that she isn't afraid to take chances. And, for the most part, her risks have paid off big.

But Lewis wasn't always so edgy. In fact, back in 1989 she was playing what could be coined traditional roles, like her turn as Clark Griswold's daughter, Audrey, in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

Written by the iconic John Hughes and directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik, "Christmas Vacation" will go down in history as one of the best movies ever Chevy Chase's funniest flicks. Which is still a pretty big achievement.

As Audrey, Lewis perfectly captured the surly teen, forced to share quality time with her annoying family. »

Michael Ealy and Regina Hall Ponder ‘Last Night’; ‘Sex and Sunsets’ Finds Two More

27 July 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Kevin Hart in the bag, those behind the upcoming remake of About Last Night have started to find their other main players — and they’re planning this one pretty specifically. You’ll know of what I speak upon reading Variety‘s story, which tells us Screen Gems and Think Like a Man producers have corralled two of his co-stars from that film, Michael Ealy and Regina Hall, both of whom are expected to sign in the near future.

Like Edward Zwick‘s original film — along with its starting point: David Mamet‘s play, Sexual Perversity in Chicago — About Last Night revolves around a couple who, after having a one night stand, decide to make their relationship into a legitimate enterprise. We, the voyeuristic viewers, then get to follow that over the course of a year, as things get better, worse, and end up somewhere in-between.

Hart has already committed »

‘True Blood’ Actor Ryan Kwanten Takes ‘Sex and Sunsets’; ‘Glee’ Star Playing Robert De Niro’s Offspring In ‘Malavita’

13 July 2012 1:33 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Seeing as film is, without question, the superior medium, anytime a TV actor gets a big-screen role should be seen as their own success. A couple of these very instances have occurred today, with Deadline first reporting that Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) has snagged the headline role in Sex and Sunsets, a romantic picture that Jeremiah S. Chechik (that other film called The Avengers) will direct.

In writing the film, Megan Martin has adapted Tim Sandlin‘s novel of divided love and bizarre sights, which follows a dishwasher, Kelly Palamino, whose visual and aural hallucinations don’t get in the way of falling for Collette, a woman getting married that very day. Soon enough, he starts pursuing the newlywed, trying to prove that his bad reputation is nothing more than falsehood.

That sounds like an unsavory protagonist, but Chechik feels that Kwanten has “a balance of humor and edge” that »

As 'Battleship' Flops: Ten Other Memorable Box-Office Bombs

21 May 2012 10:43 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

To have one giant money-losing tentpole is unfortunate. To have two starts to look careless, and that's what's happened to Taylor Kitsch. The actor, who broke out on TV's "Friday Night Lights," was seen as Hollywood's next great hope, picked out to star in two great big blockbusters with a combined cost of half-a-billion dollars. But when "John Carter" arrived in March, the film wildly underperformed, with Disney taking a hit of at least $100 million on the project. And after this weekend, it looks that his other film, "Battleship," is going to lose similar amounts.

The film, Universal & Hasbro's adaptation of the board game, directed by "Hancock" helmer Peter Berg, had taken the unusual step of opening everywhere else in the world six weeks ahead of the U.S, in the hope of bagging lucrative foreign coin and building buzz for the U.S. release. But while the film did ok abroad, »

Chuck Ep. 5.10, “Chuck Versus Bo”: Never say “one last mission”

14 January 2012 6:39 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Chuck Review, Season 5, Episode 10, “Chuck Versus Bo”

Written by Kristin Newman

Directed by Jeremiah Chechik

Airs Fridays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

Throughout the tumultuous history of TV and movies, there has been one constant rule. Characters should never talk about taking “one last mission.” Variations on this law include one last score, one last job, or even one last night out with the guys. It’s all bad news. This makes Chuck and Sarah’s decision to take one last spy mission a thorny proposition. They recognize the dire ramifications of this move, but there’s no choice. They must take the chance and go against the conventional wisdom. This pop-culture precedent bodes poorly for their trip to Vail, even if the stakes are worth the risk. The location of a pair of Intersect sunglasses (another one?) is the invaluable prize, and they’re not the only people looking for it. »
