21 May 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In what could be a piece of perfect casting, Nick Frost has signed on to portray Captain Pugwash in a live-action feature film adaptation of the beloved British children’s character. John Hay (There’s Only One Jimmy Grimble) is writing and directing, while Jason Flemyng will also feature in the cast.

Pugwash will follow the bumbling and cowardly pirate captain of the the Black Pig and his crew as they set off on a mission to rescue Tom the Cabin Boy’s father, who has become marooned on a volcanic island with a hoard of treasure protected by an army of angry ghosts. And to make things more complicated, Pugwash soon finds he has the infamous pirate Cut-Throat Jake on his tail.

27 April 2017 5:37 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Mike Myers may be ready to slip back into a familiar character.

The 53-year-old comedian reflected on the upcoming 20th anniversary of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and how his father's death inspired him to create the hilarious British spy character.

"After my dad died in 1991, I was taking stock of his influence on me as a person and his influence on me with comedy in general," Myers said in an interview with Hollywood Reporter, published on Thursday. "So Austin Powers was a tribute to my father, who [introduced me to] James Bond, Peter Sellers, The Beatles, The Goodies, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore."

Austin Powers debuted on May 2, 1997, the sequel, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, hit theaters in 1999, and was followed by 2002's Austin Powers: Gold Member, co-starring Beyonce. All three films were directed by Jay Roach.

Some so-called sophisticated ‘sixties romantic dramas have dated pretty badly, as it’s not easy to create a movie acceptable to a fickle audience, that doesn’t end up with attitudes, politics or even costumes that don’t look ‘wrong’ just a few years later. I’ve found that enjoying Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s takes a conscious act of selective blindness. The music, the style, the images were swooningly vital to an audience perhaps ten years older than this reviewer. Hepburn’s ravishing Holly Golightly misses »
