'The Goonies' 30th Anniversary Soundtrack Coming to Vinyl

28 August 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Amblin Entertainment is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of two of its biggest hits of all time. These are movies that went onto have a long shelf life, and are both adored by fans. But it seems that the Back to The Future 30th Anniversary celebration has dwarfed The Goonies. That movie is getting released back into theaters, will have a special edition Blu-ray, and a ton of other collectibles that are hitting store shelves this October. But The Goonies isn't being completely left out in the cold. Amazon has something very cool planned, and its something collectors are definitely going to want to get their hands on.

Amazon has started pressing and producing its own line of vinyl records under the Amazon label. And on October 9th, they are releasing 5 vinyl soundtracks to some of the 80s most beloved movies. Including The Goonies, which is getting a special 30th Anniversary release. »

Carly Rae Jepsen Wants You to Notice Her, Maybe, But for the Right Reasons

20 August 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Carly Rae Jepsen doesn't stand out. Walking into the Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien Hotel, a soft-lit gem tucked away in midtown Manhattan, she blends right in with the summer lunchtime bustle of tourists and brave — or dedicated — locals. She’s even harder to recognize with her jet-black bob, the result of an impulsive chop-and-dye job she did in June. “I needed the dark hair to match my mood,” she jokes about the exhausting press cycle that has brought her to New York City in support of her third album, Emotion, out this week. Adding to that weariness are her plans for that evening: Jepsen, 29, is also in town to induct Cyndi Lauper into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, where in just a few hours she’ll have to perform "Time After Time" in front of her idol. “I might cry while I do it,” she lets out »

18 August 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kinky Boots London

Starting its preview run at the Adelphi Theatre in London from this Friday, 21st August is the new musical Kinky Boots, and to tie in with that, we have an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at rehearsals for the show in a brand new featurette.

Watch the Kinky Boots London rehearsal footage below.

Kinky Boots: The Musical which music and lyrics by Tony, Emmy and Grammy-winner Cyndi Lauper and a book by legendary Tony-winner Harvey Fierstein, has already had a hugely successful run on Broadway, where it opened in 2013. Transferring to the West End this year, the UK production stars Killian Donnelly and Matt Henry in the two leads as Charlie and Lola respectively, with other cast members including Amy Lennox as Lauren, Amy Ross as Nicola, Jamie Baughan as Don, and Michael Hobbs as George.

Kinky Boots: The Musical is based on the 2005 movie screenplay by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth. »

Re-Viewed: The Rocky Horror Picture Show remains a classic 40 years later

14 August 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"Enter at your own risk!!" screams a sign early on in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's a fair warning for a film that's as unapologetically bonkers as you'd imagine a Cyndi Lauper sleepover or a John Waters nightmare to be, swimming in batty humour, extravagant costumes and hummable anarchy. With Tim Curry tottering around in high heels and suspenders, and Susan Sarandon harmonising in nothing but her bra, director Jim Sharman's 1975 musical adaptation is a veritable anthem to the odd.

Risky? Yes, but in the intervening 40 years, it's become a cult phenomenon that's stood the test of time remarkably well, partly because it never belonged to a discernible time period anyway. Based on Richard O'Brien's 1973 stage show (then called The Rocky Horror Show), the film sends up and celebrates the schlocky sci-fi/horror tropes of the '30s, '40s and '50s, revelling in a kitschy timelessness. »

Cyndi Lauper pretends to be Madonna?

14 June 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Cyndi Lauper has signed autographs while pretending to be Madonna. The 61-year-old star - whose career has spanned more than 30 years - has revealed she's occasionally faked being her pop rival when fans mistake her for the 'Like a Virgin' star. She told the 'Graham Norton Show': ''It happens to me once in a while. I just sign Madonna. I don't care and as long as I don't talk I get away with it.'' The duo were often pitted against each other during the 1980s and while their careers have subsequently taken different paths, Cyndi's music remains an inspiration to some modern-day stars, including British girl group Little Mix. The band - which features Perrie Edwards, 21, Jade Thirlwall, 22, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, both of whom are 23 - recently revealed Cyndi was one of the main influences behind their new album. Jesy said: ''Our biggest inspiration is Cyndi Lauper. »

13 June 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Mark Wahlberg has showed off his impressive memory skills by reeling off a list of 57 movie names at lightning speed.

The actor was appearing on The Graham Norton Show alongside Seth MacFarlane last night (June 12) when it came to light that Wahlberg was made to remember a long list of names for Ted 2, but MacFarlane cut the scene.

Never one to miss an opportunity, Wahlberg quickly launched into the list without even stopping for breath.

He told Norton: "Yeah I can still do it, I mean I think about this s**t all the time!"

During the show, MacFarlane also took part in a game of 'Cyndi-oke', which saw the Family Guy creator channel his inner Griffins as he sang along to some of fellow guest Cyndi Lauper's greatest hits.

Stewie Griffin performed 'Time After Time' before Peter Griffin took the spotlight with a rendition of 'True Colours'. »

Watch Seth MacFarlane Sing Cyndi Lauper’s Greatest Hits As His Family Guy Characters

12 June 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We’ll hear Seth MacFarlane’s dulcet tones coming once again out of a foul mouthed teddy bear when Ted 2 hits later this Summer, but for now, you have to watch him belt out some of Cyndi Lauper’s greatest hits as Stewie and Peter Griffin, with the singer on the couch beside him, from The Graham Norton Show. I don’t know about you, but I want an album of him singing her entire back catalogue. Ted 2 is released in the U.S. on June 26th, and on this side of the pond on July 10th. »

Seth MacFarlane Sings Cyndi Lauper Songs As Family Guy’s Stewie and Peter Griffin

12 June 2015 3:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Graham Norton must have watched our Animated Voices panel, because this week he has Seth MacFarlane singing two of Cyndi Lauper's most iconic hits — "Time After Time" and "True Colors" — in the voices of Family Guy's Stewie and Peter Griffin. It's nice to know that if Ted 2 is somehow a flop, MacFarlane could always fall back on a road show of '80s ballads performed as characters from Family Guy. »
