Poor Tippi Hedren. Little did she know her first acting job, which came in director Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963), would lead to a nervous breakdown.

Hitchcock cast the unknown as The Birds’ wealthy socialite Melanie Daniels, who heads to the Northern California town of Bodega Bay to visit eligible bachelor Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor). Her arrival also ushers in a wave of strange and terrifying bird attacks, which peaks when a flock of angry birds attacks Melanie in the attic of Mitch’s cottage home.

Hedren was assured that mechanical birds would be used to film the climactic scene, but when she arrived on set she realized Hitchcock had lied to her, and real birds would be used instead.

On October 3rd, Aaron Samuels asked Cady Haron what day it was, and a whole new holiday was born.

That's right, on Monday October 3rd, it is Mean Girls day, and we're celebrating in a big way. All Cineplex VIP theatres across Canada will be screening the film, meaning yes, you can sit with us.

The teen comedy classic may have come out back in 2004, but it's still one of the most relevant and talked about films today. Writer and comedy icon Tina Fey perfectly captured high school, and we're so excited to re-live some of our favourite moments from the film on the big screen. Not only that, but we'll have special Mean Girls themed cocktails, and we're definitely encouraging you to wear pink.

Finally, Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and we cannot contain our excitement!

His mission is to stop the magical beasts before a war erupts between the human and non-human worlds. How hard could it be?

Our favourite moments from Zoolander on its 15th anniversary!

Our favourite moments from Zoolander on its 15th anniversary!Our favourite moments from Zoolander on its 15th anniversary!Garrett McCormick9/28/2016 11:17:00 Am

Time sure does fly! It’s been 15 years since Derek Zoolander blessed our lives with his classic look, Blue Steel, and when Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Will Ferrell joined comedic forces to create the wackiest, over the top, hilarious comedy that is Zoolander. Stiller played Derek Zoolander, a fashion icon/trained fighter whose mission was to take down an assassination. This action-comedy became an instant classic during its 2001 release, and people still talk about it today! Those gorgeous eyes, radiant skin, silky hair, and The Look…as if we could forget.

The cult classic also includes Christine Taylor, Jerry Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jon Voight, along with cameos from a bunch of A-list celebrities. Stiller wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film, but all of »

Samuel L. Jackson talks his creepy character in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Consider, for a moment, the walking, talking (and talking, and talking) literary archive that is Samuel L. Jackson.

The 67-year-old actor, who has more than 160 film and TV productions under his belt, has also brought a veritable library worth of books to life on the big screen, including works by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park), John Grisham (A Time to Kill), Stephen King (1408, Cell) and Edgar Rice Burroughs (The Legend of Tarzan), not to mention multiple passes at comic book great Stan Lee — Jackson plays S.H.I.E.L.D. honcho Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He even lent his incomparable swearing skills to the audio version of the bestselling children’s book parody Go the F--k to Sleep. »

Mark Wahlberg talks his new movie Deepwater HorizonMark Wahlberg talks his new movie Deepwater HorizonIngrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine9/26/2016 10:24:00 Am

He’s Hollywood’s blue-collar superstar.

Mark Wahlberg didn’t study acting at Yale School of Drama or Juilliard. He wasn’t raised by wealthy parents, doesn’t belong to a showbiz family and certainly didn’t plan to become an actor.

He grew up in a large family in a tough Boston neighbourhood, dropped out of high school at 14 to run with a gang and sell drugs. His errant ways escalated into violence when at age 16 he was convicted in the savage assaults of two Vietnamese men.

But out of calamity came clarity, and Wahlberg decided to clean up his act. After serving his 45-day sentence he turned his back on his gang and took up rapping. His musical pursuits and a turn as a muscular male »
