While we continue to ponder whether or not the Big Trouble in Little China remake starring Dwayne Johnson is a good thing, we now have something new and exciting to pour over from the original movie itself. As we approach the 30th Anniversary of Big Trouble in Little China, which was released July 2, 1986, we have a first look at the big coffee table book that explores the making of the movie. Along with the cover art, we also have two behind-the-scenes photos.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get a sneak peek at this awesome tome from authors Tara Bennett and Paul Terry. At the time of Big Trouble's debut in theaters, the Fourth of July release date window wasn't what it has become today. And the movie didn't fare too well amongst other big summer blockbusters. Its box office reception was tepid, to say the least, pulling in just $11 million. »
John Carpenter celebrated his 68th birthday a few days ago, so it felt like a no-brainer that I should cover one of his films this week. We here at Fsr are big Carpenter fans and have already covered several of his films on Commentary Commentary — Halloween, The Fog, Escape from New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, They Live — but while those titles are beloved I’m turning this week to one of his less-respected titles that I happen to love. 1987’s Prince of Darkness is a fun mix of gory horror and metaphysical mumbo-jumbo, and while some sketchy acting hurts it the film as a whole is terrifically creepy entertainment. The score is fantastic, the film ends strong, and the cast includes a bevy of Carpenter favorites including Donald Pleasence, Victor Wong, and Dennis Dun. Keep reading to see what I heard on the Prince of Darkness commentary. Prince of Darkness »
