James Bond Ally Felix Leiter To Debut In New Comic Book

7 October 2016 3:17 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Felix Leiter, the CIA agent who assisted James Bond in both novels and on screen, is finally getting into the spotlight on his own via a new series of comic book adventures authorized by the Ian Fleming estate. The comics will be written by James Robinson with artwork by Aaron Campbell, both of whom have impressive credentials in the industry. The series will be published by Dynamite. Based on the preliminary artwork, this ain't your grandad's version of Felix Leiter. In the Bond films he tends to be as dapper and sophisticated as 007 himself but the comics will present Leiter as a freelance investigator who looks more "Miami Vice" than "Casino Royale". According to the publicity, Leiter will still be involved in the world of espionage. Bond fans have long griped about the character of Leiter not being used to his fullest potential on screen.

From the Terrace

19 January 2016 9:24 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This is as sexy as Hollywood pix got in 1960. John O'Hara's novel about class snobbery and the drive for success posits Paul Newman as a moody go-getter. In glossy soap opera fashion, his silver spoon-fed bride Joanne Woodward morphs into an unfaithful monster. Some adulterous relationships are excused and others not in this glossy, morally rigged melodrama. In other words, it's prime entertainment material. From the Terrace Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1960 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 144 min. / Ship Date January 19, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Myrna Loy, Ina Balin, Leon Ames, Elizabeth Allen, Barbara Eden, George Grizzard, Patrick O'Neal, Felix Aylmer. Cinematography Leo Tover Art Direction Maurice Ransford, Howard Richmond, Lyle R. Wheeler Film Editor Dorothy Spencer Original Music Elmer Bernstein Written by Ernest Lehman from the novel by John O'Hara Produced and directed by Mark Robson

Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Fly

4 January 2016 6:45 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

It’s a new year but we’re still looking at remakes and what makes them good or bad. For our latest article, we’ve got one of the good ones as we break down David Cronenberg’s The Fly.

It’s often the case where the original film is clearly better than the remake, or sometimes vice-versa. In this case, however, it’s actually hard to determine which of them is better because they’re both so well done. Both were financially successful and well-reviewed. Both versions inspired sequels. For horror fans, both versions of this film are worth a viewing. Additionally, they both had great poster catchphrases. The 1958 version had, “He was once human!” and the remake had the even more memorable “Be afraid! Be very afraid!” 

 The original version of The Fly (1958), based on a short story by George Langalaan, was made during the sci-fi boom of the 1950s, »
