The Apes Are Mad as Hell and They're Not Going to Take It Anymore: 'Dawn' Teaser Released

19 December 2013 5:33 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ trailer: 2014 ‘Apes’ movie pits Gmo apes against Gmo-eating apes (photo: Simmering Caesar means business in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ teaser trailer) The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer — or rather, teaser trailer — has been unleashed. Caesar and his fellow genetically modified apes find themselves threatened by a bunch of genetically modified food-eating apes (i.e., humans) who survived the pandemic of the previous decade. Whereas throughout their existence humans used to do battle with one another because of their different nationalities, ethnicities, soccer teams, and/or favorite god(s), they’ve now banded together to face off against the hairier apes. Check out the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes below. "I want you to know, it’s not just about power," a disembodied voice explains in the trailer. "It’s about giving us the hope to rebuild, »

Slim Durbin and Marvelous Rendition of 'Last Rose of Summer'

6 May 2013 6:29 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Deanna Durbin: Ephemeral fame (photo: Deanna Durbin in 1981) [See previous post: "Deanna Durbin: 'Sweet Monster.'"] Unlike Greta Garbo, whose mystique remained basically intact following her retirement in 1941, Deanna Durbin’s popularity faded away much like that of the vast majority of celebrities who were removed — or who chose to remove themselves — from public view. Despite the advent of home video and classic-movie cable channels, Durbin remains virtually unknown to the vast majority of those who weren’t around in her heyday in the ’30s and ’40s. Yet, although relatively few in number, she continues to have her ardent fans. There are a handful of websites devoted to Deanna Durbin and her film and recording careers, chiefly among them the appropriately titled "Deanna Durbin Devotees." Fade Out Charles David, Deanna Durbin’s husband of 48 years, died in March 1999, at the age of 92; Institut Pasteur medical researcher Peter H. David is their only son. Durbin also had a daughter, »

The Top-Paid Female Star: Durbin Pt.5

4 May 2013 9:31 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Deanna Durbin: Highest-paid actress in the world [See previous post: "Deanna Durbin in the '40s: From Wholesome Musicals to Film Noir Sex Worker."] Despite several missteps in the handling of her career, David Shipman states that Deanna Durbin was Hollywood’s (and the world’s) highest-paid actress in both 1945 and 1947. In 1946, Durbin’s earnings of $323,477 trailed only Bette Davis’ $328,000 at Warner Bros. Those are impressive rankings (and wages), but ironically Durbin’s high earnings ultimately harmed her career. By the mid-’40s, her domestic box-office allure was beginning to fade, a situation surely worsened by World War II closing off most of Hollywood’s top international markets. As a result, Universal, since 1947 a new entity known as Universal-International, was unwilling to spend extra money in their star’s already costly vehicles. That’s a similar predicament to the one faced by silent-era superstar John Gilbert at MGM in the early ’30s: the studio had to pay Gilbert an exorbitant salary that made his movies much »
