‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ Review: Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer Heat Up the Cold War in ’60s Spy Reboot

10 August 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After giving us two steampunk-flavored reboots of Sherlock Holmes, director Guy Ritchie has aimed the Wayback Machine to the Golden Age of Kennedy, Khrushchev and, perhaps most importantly, Ian Fleming with “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” based on the 1964-1968 TV show. The Cold War got sexier after the release of the first big-screen 007 adventure, “Dr. No,” and Ritchie’s new movie, set in the early ’60s, harkens back to a time when pop culture had spies, gadgets and deadly dames behind every dust jacket and on every screen, large and small. This new “Man from U.N.C.L.E. »

The Most Iconic Jewelry in the Movies

11 July 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Precious jewels have provided fodder for drama practically since drama was invented, with precious stones and trinkets used as plot devices in plays written as far back as 100 B.C. As man-made substitutes such as rhinestones, moissanite, and cubic zirconium started making the market for seemingly-precious stones more, well, precious, so did the real thing become more dramatic to seek out on film. Here are a few of the most sought after, revered and iconic pieces of jewelry dramatized for our viewing pleasure.

Heart of the Ocean—Titanic

James Cameron’s box office champ offered up one eye-popping set piece after the other, not the least of which was Kate Winslet’s greatest asset. Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about the legendary Heart of the Ocean necklace worn by her character, Rose. Lore has it that the diamond was originally owned by »

James Bond Musical Production Causes Legal Dispute

9 July 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Producers Albert R. Broccoli (left) and Harry Saltzman with author Ian Fleming and star Sean Connery in a publicity photo taken before production started on the first 007 film "Dr. No" in 1962


By Lee Pfeiffer

Eon Productions has stated on the company's web site and Facebook page that they have not granted rights for a James Bond musical production. Earlier, Merry Saltzman, one of the daughters of the late 007 producer Harry Saltzman, announced that she was staging a musical production based on the Bond films. In response to the Eon statement, Saltzman indicated that she has not sought rights from Eon nor does she believe she needs them since her stage production would fall into the category of a parody. Eon has been very protective of the Bond brand over the decades and it remains to be seen how this will be resolved. The situation does open some old wounds that many thought were long closed. »

20 Best Movie Franchises, As Ranked By Their Villains

5 July 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Some of the most memorable characters in movie history are antagonists. Here are our picks for the franchises that have make the biggest impression based on their villains alone.

A great antagonist in a film can make the effort of the protagonist seem more important. The hero’s plight becomes elevated to have meaning beyond just simple entertainment. It is those struggles that define some of the best movies ever made, and give the audience something to really cheer about.

It’s challenging enough to make one good antagonist, but what happens when you need to make a sequel? What happens if your antagonist has died but your protagonist needs more adventures to keep them busy or complete their story? Maintaining quality villains in a movie franchise is not easy to do. Some movie franchises have had better success at maintaining great antagonists, to the point of often being more »

Nobody's done it better than 'Nobody Does it Better' when it comes to James Bond

24 June 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Songs On Screen: All week HitFix will be featuring tributes by writers to their favorite musical moments from TV and film. Check out all the entries in the series here.  There are very few constants in the world of pop culture. James Bond, however, appears to be eternal. It's more than a movie franchise at this point. It's a generational milestone that gets handed down. My dad took me to my first Bond movie. I'll take my sons to their first Bond movie. And I have no doubt that 20 years from now, there will be a new James Bond and my kids will be able to take their own kids to enjoy it. I am equally sure that whatever Bond film they go see will open with a song written by a hot recording artist, and that song will be on the charts while the film's in theaters, and we'll »

Pierce Brosnan: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

24 June 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

I interviewed Pierce Brosnan in conjunction with his third outing as James Bond, in Michael Apted's The World Is Not Enough, in 1999. Brosnan was alternately charming, erudite, thoughtful and intense during our two hour chat. His native intelligence shone through it all, as did a sense of decency which many people seem to acquire after enduring and surviving hardship in their formative years.

Alex Simon

There are several dangers in becoming a cultural icon, not the least of which is the stigma that your public will forever keep you imprisoned in the mold of your iconography, allowing the recipient a privileged, if imprisoned, existence, particularly if that person is an artist. Sean Connery faced just such a dilemma during the height of James Bond-mania in the mid-60's. A serious actor, Connery desperately wanted to break out of the action hero mold that was British Superspy James Bond, »

Are Origin Stories Always Necessary In Super Hero Films?

14 June 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Filmmakers often like to give us an origin story of the main character(s), especially if they are hoping to build a franchise. But that’s not always the case. With the rumor the Doctor Strange movie, as well as the Spider-Man reboot, will not include any origin for the characters, Cinelinx asks the question…are origin stories necessary?

When you go to see a super hero/comic book film, unless it’s a sequel, you probably expect to see an origin story regarding how the character(s) got his/her/their power(s) and the reason he/she/they fight the bad guys. It makes sense from a story-telling perspective. It’s essentially the first chapter of a longer story arc, particularly if the film is planned to be the beginning of a film franchise. But is it always necessary?

Rumors were spreading last year that the Doctor Strange »

Sir Christopher Lee Dead At Age 93; Personal Reflections On A Legend Of The Film Industry

11 June 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Artist Jeff Marshall created this tribute to Sir Christopher Lee, which was presented to him by Cinema Retro publishers Lee Pfeiffer and Dave Worrall.

By Lee Pfeiffer

Sir Christopher Lee, the acclaimed British actor, passed away last Sunday in London. He was 93 years old. The family waited to make the announcement until all family members could be notified. Lee was an early contributor to Cinema Retro magazine and periodically provided interviews and personal insights into the making of his films. We, along with movie lovers everywhere, mourn his loss. Lee was more often than not associated with the horror film genre, a fact that often frustrated him. He would routinely point out that he made many diverse films and played many diverse roles in movies of all genres, from comedies to westerns. For many years he was most closely associated with the films of Hammer studios, the British production firm »

Christopher Lee, 'Lord of the Rings' and Horror Star, Dead at 93

11 June 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Christopher Lee, the prolific British actor whose specialty for villainy earned him roles as far and wide as Frankenstein's monster, the Mummy, Bond foe Scaramanga, Sith Lord Count Dooku and Saruman in The Lord of the Rings franchise, died Sunday, in London, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 93.

Lee had been admitted to Westminster Hospital for respiratory problems and heart failure. His wife, former Danish model and painter Gitte Kroencke, withheld the news in order to inform family first.

Christopher Lee, Actor Who Made Dracula Count Again, Dies at 93

11 June 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Lee, the second most famous Dracula of the 20th century — an impressive feat — and a memorably irrepressible villain in James Bond film “The Man With the Golden Gun,” in the Star Wars films and in “The Lord of the Rings” pics, has died. He was 93.

Lee appeared in 10 films as Count Dracula (nine if his uncredited role in the comedy “One More Time” is excluded).

His first role for famed British horror factory Hammer Films was not the Transylvanian vampire, however, but Frankenstein’s Monster in 1957’s “The Curse of Frankenstein.” His close friend Peter Cushing, with whom he would co-star in horror films frequently, starred as the Baron.

Lee made his first appearance as the sharp-toothed Count in 1958’s “Horror of Dracula.”

For reasons not quite certain, he skipped the 1960 sequel “Brides of Dracula,” but he returned to the role for 1965’s “Dracula: Prince of Darkness” — a movie »

‘Best Of Bond’ season opens with ‘Dr. No’ and ‘Goldfinger’ double

11 June 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You can’t help but feel sorry for George Lazenby. Not only is his solitary Bond outing On Her Majesty’s Secret Service almost universally under-rated, he’s also the only lead unable to see himself on the big screen in glorious digitally remastered Sony 4K format.

In a move that will make all Bond fans rejoice, Vue Cinemas have decided to host a special ‘Best Of Bond’ season over the course of June and July, with double bills showcasing some of 007’s most iconic films (and The World Is Not Enough) – in the Sony 4K format.

Launching on Sunday 14th June, each double bill will focus firmly on one leading man, beginning with original star Sean Connery’s portrayal of the secret agent in classics Dr. No and Goldfinger.

The character’s silver screen debut, Dr. No sees James Bond travel to Jamaica following the disappearance of another British agent. »

Iconic Movie Villain Christopher Lee Dies at 93

11 June 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Christopher Lee, the prolific actor who terrified audiences as Dracula, as the Frankenstein monster, and as Saruman in "Lord of the Rings," died Sunday at the age of 93.

The Guardian reported that Lee passed away after being admitted to a London hospital for respiratory problems and heart failure. His wife of over 50 years, Gitte Kroencke, released the news days later in order to inform family members first.

Lee was born May 27, 1922. As a young man, he served in the Royal Air Force as an intelligence officer during World War II. After the war, he turned to acting on the advice of his cousin (the Italian ambassador to Britain). For years, Lee had bit roles in dozens of films by legendary directors like Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and John Huston.

He got his big break in 1957 when he played the monster in "The Curse of Frankenstein." That led to the titular role in 1958's "Dracula. »

It probably doesn't seem like much to most people, but I started this week off with three movies from Monday-Wednesday, beginning with Entourage then Spy and finally Insidious: Chapter 3. As much as this may seem like a dream job, three movies three nights in a row on top of your normal work day, not to mention I need to get to each of those 45 minutes in advance and my drive to Spy, which normally takes me about 12 minutes or so took me an hour (this time of year I normally walk, but I couldn't this time for a variety of reasons), makes for what suddenly becomes a 12-13 hour work day. After all, would any of you pay to see those three movies back-to-back-to-backc However, offering an example of the difference between going to see a movie for work purposes and going to see a movie for pleasure, I »

Copy/Paste: Point Break, Big Trouble in Little China, and a Shared 007 Universe?

4 June 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Copy/Paste examines trends in the world of cinematic remakes, reboots, and re-imaginings. Whether we want them or not…

Every film, TV Show, Comic Book, and Video Game you love is under consideration for a remake. There have been a half-dozen attempts to mount a re-make of Casablanca. They’ve considered a prequel to Jaws. There was at one point serious consideration to making The Godfather Part 4. Nothing you love is sacred. Everything will be re-monetized. Your indignation is meaningless.

They will strip mine your past while your inner child dies like a canary in a cage.

This week the internet reacted poorly to the announcement that Big Trouble in Little China was getting a remake starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The John Carpenter film holds a special place in the hearts of middle-aged fanboys who hold the original beyond reproach, or in this case, ‘beyond remake’. And yet, here we are. »

Sony May Lose Rights To James Bond Franchise After Spectre

2 June 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All anyone on the web is talking about anymore boils down to Marvel and DC Comics adaptations, but neither of those studios can hold a candle to the longevity of the James Bond franchise. More than 50 years after Sean Connery first played the character on screen in 1962’s Dr. No, the series is still going strong, thanks mostly to a creative revamping overseen by MGM and Sony Pictures on 2004’s Casino Royale.

This fall, 007 will appear again in Spectre, but there will be much bigger news than just that film regarding the spy before year’s end – the release of Spectre will mark the end of the lucrative deal between MGM and Sony that began with Casino Royale, and leave the franchise up for grabs with regard to which studios will partner with MGM on future entries.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. may be the studio to beat on that front, »

Bryan Fuller interview: Hannibal season 3, Red Dragon, American Gods

27 May 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Hannibal season 3 arrives, we chat to showrunner Bryan Fuller about origin stories, Francis Dolarhyde, David Bowie & more…

The long wait to find out who survived The Red Dinner (aka Hannibal’s spectacular season two finale, Mizumono) is almost over. Hannibal season three is nearly upon us, and to mark its arrival, we caught up with showrunner Bryan Fuller to find out what’s in store.

Firstly, we’re due to meet a different kind of Hannibal in a very different kind of setting. Fuller’s James Bond fandom has leached into the first seven-episode chapter of the season, which sees Mads Mikkelsen’s chicly dressed predator living undercover in the upper echelons of Italian society. The season’s second six-episode chapter introduces Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, a character familiar to Red Dragon fans.

We chatted to Fuller about the show’s revised take on Hannibal’s origin story, »

This week I continued my binging of "The Wire" as I'm now through the third season and a couple episodes into the fourth. So far the first season was solid, the second season was just a'ight, the third has a great ending and I'm not far enough into the fourth to have much of an opinion. Verdict thus far... good show. I also re-watched the season three premiere of "Hannibal" and am going back and watching the final three episodes of the second season in preparation for covering this upcoming third season. I want to make sure I'm all caught up and not in the least bit confused as to what's going on. As far as movies are concerned, in theaters I only saw Tomorrowland much to my chagrin, but at home I watched the new Criterion Blu-ray edition of Charlie Chaplin's Limelight and I'll have a review of »

10 Best James Bond Movies Of All Time

13 May 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


It’s been 53 years since Dr. No first introduced cinema-goers to James Bond, author (and former Oss agent) Ian Fleming’s incredibly English secret agent. At this point, there have been 23 official Bond movies made since 1962 (there’s another on the way in November – you’ve probably heard), with six different actors playing 007 through six different decades.

Obviously it’s difficult to maintain consistency over 53 years, and not every Bond film has been totally successful. 007’s is a strange franchise in that it goes through periods of apparently immense cultural importance as well as periods where it seems like the character’s day is done, and through those times the series has been responsible for as many dire moments as great ones.

Thankfully, the Bond franchise’s best movies more than make up for the weaker ones. It’s the longest-running movie series for a reason, and the reason »
