'Dwts' Celebrates 200 Shows with Return of Fan Favorites

1 November 2010 7:34 PM, PDT | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

"Dancing with the Stars" kicked off its 200th show celebration on Monday night with the return of more than 50 stars who have previously appeared on the show. For the first part of the festivities, two previous champions, Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno, returned to coach this season's dancers. First up Team Kristi (Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke, Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas, and Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer) danced the cha cha under Kristi's tutelage for a score of 24. Judge Len Goodman said of the performance, "I thought you're the underdogs but I've got to say, you dogs have got quite a bite -- it was great." Judge Carrie Ann Inaba noted, "You showed off that you're working as a group." Next was Team Apolo (Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya, Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough) who also danced the cha cha, but to a »

Stay off the roads next Summer. 'Cars 2' is coming.

20 October 2010 2:05 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

While the first Cars movie doesn't rank among my favorite Pixar films I thought it was very impressive visually. Yet, as Pixar delves further into franchise territory and it would appear less into original ideas I find the idea of putting the characters from the first film into a storyline involving spies and espionage a tad worrisome. 

But, it does invite the clever of us to make up silly titles for it. Cars 2: Secret Agent Van. And my feeble attempt at cleverness ends there for now. 

The typical studio teaser is after the break! »

Sitges 2010: Kaboom Review

9 October 2010 6:05 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Probably the best thing audiences will get out of Gregg Araki's latest joint, Kaboom, is some well thought out and thorough advice on cunnilingus from rising star Juno Temple. Well, that and its very pretty cast parading around in holier-than-thou-coolness. Otherwise, the flat, though colourful, look of the film, its refusal to take anything too serious, or spend too much effort on story or character, leave the film fitfully entertaining but rather stuck in the middle of the directors C.V. It is half-way between the stoner classic Smiley Face, and his more narcissistic-hubris laden debut The Doom Generation.

Smith (The Sarah Connor Chronicles and All About Evil's Thomas Dekker who looks a lot like Jared Leto while sporting some very sexy 9 O'Clock shadow) is a bit anxious about turning 19. He is plagued with recurring nightmares about exotic red-heads and lesbians and red-dumpsters while he fantasizes about sex with his roomate, »

Joel McHale On For Spy Kids 4

8 September 2010 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Robert Rodriguez’ latest Spy Kids adventure – which, despite its titular number 4 will also reboot the series – has just landed a star that should make it at least 73% funnier, with The Informant’s Joel McHale agreeing to one of the lead roles.McHale will be playing a spy-tracking reporter married to Jessica Alba (lucky blighter), who is the stepmother to his kids and also happens to be a retired Secret Agent herself. Suffice to say she doesn’t stay off duty for long, as Alba told Empire recently that she’s getting plenty of stunts in the movie.You might know Joel McHale from Us network E!’s comedy show The Soup, but these days he’s also been starring on superb sitcom Community. Film-wise, he spent his summer shooting What’s Your Number with Anna Faris and Steve Martin’s The Big Year.There’s no word yet on who »

Tough Calls

20 August 2010 1:07 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

In my line of work, the computer is rapidly replacing the phone as an agent's lifeline to the rest of the world. We can email pictures and résumés to casting directors in seconds. We can instant-message a link for a client's reel right to a producer's desk. And we can access an endless supply of information about anything and everyone in the industry. So there's no doubt about it: Computers rock. But you know what? I still love my phone.I use an imported Fujitsu desk phone with a modified Lamarr speed dialer. It connects perfectly to my handmade Handelsblatt headset. And by using a Supertex push lever, I'm able to speak comfortably and clearly all day long without getting a headache. There's no doubt about it: Phones also rock. But you know what? Not every call I make is fun.For example, I recently signed a well-known actor in »

Many Hands: Family-Friendly Tunes that Give Back to Haiti

20 August 2010 11:00 AM, PDT | People - CelebrityBabies | See recent People - CelebrityBabies news »

After the Jan. 12 earthquake that destroyed much of Haiti, family musician Dean Jones found himself feeling helpless and desperately wanting to help the country’s people.

Jones — who is also lead vocalist of kid-friendly band Dog of Fleas — felt a strong urge to do something that could help the ongoing rebuilding effort. It didn’t take long for him to come up with the idea to create a benefit album or to convince several of his fellow family musicians to sign on.

Ant-Man Is A Secret Agent Not In ‘The Avengers’

15 August 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

One of the many Marvel Studios projects in development – one that’s seemingly been delayed over and over again – is that of Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Ant-Man. Perhaps a questionable property to be made into a big budget solo film, Ant-Man has the potential to offer a unique super hero story, while having the chance to increase his popularity and bankability through through a stint The Avengers movie.

We know Ant-Man is coming after The Avengers so many thought, like us, that the character could be introduced in the epic team-up flick as a way to make mainstream audiences more aware of the shrinkable hero. That however, is not the case and Ant-Man will be its own separate origin story, separate from The Avengers.

The Amazing 'Race'

29 July 2010 4:05 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Eddie Izzard is best known as a transvestite standup comic. He is also a film, television, and Tony-nominated dramatic actor. He's a political activist for Britain's Labour Party; within 10 years he expects to run for mayor of London. Also an endurance athlete, he recently completed 43 marathons in 51 days to benefit Sport Relief, a charity that benefits the poorest and most vulnerable populations in the U.K. and across the globe.Currently he is performing on Broadway, replacing James Spader in David's Mamet's "Race," and as Izzard sees it, all the pieces of his life inform one another, incongruous as they may seem. "In politics you have to pay attention to detail and be precise, and that's especially useful for Mamet's language," Izzard says in his dressing room before a performance. "My own diction had gotten sloppy, which works for me in my standup act. But in politics you have to articulate, »

Al Williamson obituary

14 July 2010 10:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Comic strip artist best known for Flash Gordon, Secret Agent Corrigan and Star Wars

Al Williamson, who has died aged 79, was one of America's consummate comic strip artists. Chiefly remembered for his work on Flash Gordon, Secret Agent Corrigan and Star Wars, he employed a photo-real style that made even the most fantastic landscapes and action convincing. Williamson was a master draughtsman with a sharp eye for layout and composition. His virile heroes and beautiful heroines graced comic strips for more than 50 years.

He was born in New York, the son of a merchant from Bogotá in Colombia and his American wife. He grew up in Bogotá and began reading American comics, becoming a fan of Flash Gordon when he was 10 after his mother took him to the cinema to see an episode of the serial Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe.

The family later moved to New York, where he »

Take Three: Peter Lorre

11 July 2010 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Craig here with another Take Three

Today: Peter Lorre

Take One: When you're strange...

Lorre did Stranger on the Third Floor (1940) because he owed Rko Pictures two days work; just enough time to fit in a slippery six-minute cameo role, though top-billed, as the titular stranger. Boris Ingster's B-movie has been long thought to have kick-started Film Noir - though some point to The Maltese Falcon, also starring Lorre - and the long, angular and accusing shadows from M have certainly followed Lorre to '40s New York; he's hiding in them again, under stoops, around stairwells, sporting a foppish white scarf and fixing passers-by with his signature beady glare (think Steve Buscemi playing Quentin Crisp). Lorre's cypher-like stranger could just be the real killer responsible for several throat-slit murders witnessed by reporter Mike Ward (John McGuire), the blame for which has landed at cabbie Joe Briggs' (Elisha Cook Jr.) feet. »

Classic Comics Press Continues Reprinting Great Forgotten Strips

29 June 2010 8:47 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Although some of the more familiar comic strips have garnered tremendous press as a part of Idw’s Library of Comics, some of the best strips being collected have been overlooked. For the last several years, Classic Comics Press has been re-presenting Leonard Starr’s Mary Perkins and Stan Drake’s The Heart of Juliet Jones and these are just as deserving of readers’ time and attention.

Publisher Charles Pelto has turned a labor of love into a business that is surviving despite tough economic times. Along with James Gauthier, he has been slowly growing his operation, adding two new series this year. ComicMix had to the chance to chat with the two and in part one, we look at Ccp’s origins and why these two strips launched the line.

ComicMix: Charles, how long have you been interested in comic strips?

Charles Pelto: I learned how to read from the daily and Sunday funnies. »

Al Williamson 1931-2010

14 June 2010 7:07 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Al Williamson, the youngest artist in the acclaimed EC stable of artists, died yesterday after a long illness. Born in 1931, he was raised in Bogotá, Colombia, Williamson was attracted to American comic strips, notably Alex Raymond’s Flash Gordon, before relocating to the United States at age 12. As a teen, he attended Burne Hogarth's Cartoonists and Illustrators School, meeting several future colleagues, notably Wally Wood and Roy Krenkel.

After assisting Hogarth on the Tarzan Sunday pages, he made his first professional sale in 1951, selling a story to Adventures into the Unknown #27, cover dated January 1952. Just a few months later he arrived at EC, contributing to Tales from the Crypt #31. His photorealistic style and strong brush line led him to contribute primarily to the science fiction titles including Weird Science and Weird Fantasy. His other clients included Avon Publications, Fawcett Comics, and Standard Comics. When EC folded, he went to work »

Get Behind the Scenes of WWII Mystery Thriller Shanghai

10 June 2010 10:23 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

An eight minute making-of featurette for Mikael Hafstrom's thriller Shanghai has been released on the eve of its premiered held at Beijing today.  Most of the video featured the cast & crew talking about the story and the historical climate during the World War II era in Shanghai with a few short clips and on-set footage intersperse through out.

Nothing is what it seems in this Casablanca-style international thriller set in the ancient Chinese city a week before the attack on Pearl Harbor. U.S. Secret Agent Paul Soames (John Cusack) has just arrived to investigate the murder of his best friend, only to become quickly immersed in a web of conspiracy and lies that beset the city. Shadowed by a Japanese intelligence officer Tanaka (Ken Watanabe), Soames' investigation quickly centers on a charismatic local gangster, Anthony Lanting (Chow Yun-Fat) - and Lanting's beautiful wife, Anna (Gong Li).

Second Trailer for WWII Mystery Thriller Shanghai

7 June 2010 10:29 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Huayi Brothers has unveiled the second trailer for Mikael Hafstrom's Shanghai to the Chinese online media and its less spoilerific than the last one.  Meanwhile at the Weinstein Company, there hasn't been any official word on its long-awaited distribution plan, other than a spokesperson from Huayi, stating the Us release is "now tentatively scheduled for September."  Here's the official synopsis:

Shanghai Movie Trailer

27 May 2010 1:43 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

There was something strange about this project from the start. Good story, good director, great cast, but, still, a lot of difficulties for Mikael Hafstrom’s Shanghai.

Chow Yun-Fat, John Cusack, Gong Li, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Franka Potente, David Morse, Ken Watanabe all star in this intense thriller set in Shanghai, that (if you remember) was not allowed to film in China.

Anyway, we finally have something interesting to share with you – an international Shanghai trailer. Enjoy this movie clip, and check the rest of this report…

Here’s the official Shanghai synopsis part: “Nothing is what it seems in this Casablanca-style international thriller set in the ancient Chinese city a week before the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Shanghai International Trailer Staring John Cusack, Chow Yun-Fat, Gong Li, and Ken Watanbe

26 May 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After sitting on the shelf for over two years, the period crime-thriller Shanghai finally has a trailer.  For most of it, I was wondering why the flick was kept from theaters for so long.  It has tight premise, exotic locale, solid actors, and a nice look to it.  Then the trailer had the courtesy to give away almost the entire flick and what appears to be the ending looks stupid beyond all reason.  So if you want to see a film that you’ll like for maybe two-thirds of it and then check out due because of the climax, Shanghai looks like the movie for you.

Shanghai stars John Cusack, Chow Yun-Fat, Gong Li, and Ken Watanabe. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and the synopsis.  The film is set to be released in China on June 17th and sometime in the Us this September.

For almost two years, Mikael Hafstrom's espionage thriller Shanghai, starring an international cast of John Cusack, Chow Yun-Fat, Gong Li and Ken Watanabe, has been left sitting on the shelve and collecting dust.  Fortunately to those in China, it will finally see the light of day over there first and to promote this occasion, a trailer and a poster has been release to the Chinese media.  Here's the official synopsis:

Blood Oath gets movie adaptation

18 May 2010 12:03 AM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

  Hollywood must be a crowded place these days – these nights, anyway – what with all the bloodsuckers flocking to town. (Hmm, there’s something ironic about bloodsucking execs in there somewhere.) Not content with just about a hundred other vampire films getting fast-tracked into production, a new fang-flick is in the works. But this one sounds pretty mean. Adapted from Christopher Farnsworth’s almost-published novel Blood Oath, it follows Nathaniel Cade, a Secret Agent Vampire. After being captured by the...

Law Abiding Citizen Producer Lucas Foster Makes a Blood Oath with a Secret Agent Vampire

17 May 2010 10:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

True, the just-announced adaptation of the Christopher Farnsworth novel Blood Oath is another vampire flick amongst a sea of vampire flicks in Hollywood, but stick around: the twist is good.  You see, Blood Oath will tell the story of Nathaniel Cade: Secret Agent Vampire.  After the U.S. Army captures Cade in the 1860s, President Andrew Johnson recruits the bloodsucker to the Secret Service, where he has protected the incumbent president for 150 years.  In the present day, Cade and a new handler attempt to stop the creation of “an army of Frankenstein monster soldiers” when they uncover a “deeper government conspiracy.”

Lucas Foster (Law Abiding Citizen) is producing under his Warp Films banner; you can find his comments on the potentially silly premise after the jump.

The Farnsworth novel doesn’t hit the shelves until Tuesday, but Foster has faith in the author.  According to Heat Vision, the producer acquired »
