Watch: NBC Releases First Trailer for ‘Hairspray Live!’

19 August 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Hairspray Live!” doesn’t debut until this December, but the first footage is already here.

“Hairspray Live!” features newcomer Maddie Baillio in the star-making role of Tracy Turnblad, plus a star-studded cast including Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, Derek Hough, Dove Cameron, Garrett Clayton, Sean Hayes, Andrea Martin and Rosie O’Donnell. “Hairspray” vet Harvey Fierstein will star as Edna Turnblad, the role that won him a Tony in the stage production.

“Hairspray” follows NBC’s past live musicals “The Sounds of Music,” “Peter Pan” and most recently, “The Wiz.”

The live TV musical has become the hot trend of the moment with other broadcasts following suit. Fox jived into the genre with “Grease,” which was a critical and consumer hit. Fox is also prepping for “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” this fall, though it won’t be live. ABC is also gearing up for a non-live television music of “Dirty Dancing.”

Half Century Halle (and other anniversaries)

14 August 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to showbiz...

1040 King Duncan is killed in battle and King Macbeth succeeds him. Shakespeare fictionalizes everything later for Macbeth. So many theatrical productions and movies follow. Out damn spot!

1932 The 1932 Summer Olympics end. This is the Olympic year when gorgeous Buster Crabbe became a gold medalist (pictured left). Hollywood then snatched him right up for movie serials and action adventure franchises including Tarzan The Fearless

1945 Japan surrenders during Ww II (the six year war will last only two more weeks.) but movie makers all over the world have never stopped telling the war's infinite stories. On that same day Steve Martin is born in Waco Texas. It only takes him another 68 years to get the Oscar he totally deserved

 

1946 Two actor birthdays: Blacksploitation actor Antonio Fargas who became "Huggybear" on TV's popular Starksy & Hutch and Susan Saint James TV of McMillan & Wife »

Alan Ladd Jr. Documentary Proves There’s Life Beyond the Original ‘Star Wars’

12 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Alan Ladd Jr. was president of 20th Century Fox Pictures in the 1970s, he greenlit “Star Wars” and “Alien.”

That alone ensures him a place in Hollywood history. But his career also includes a third sci-fi classic — “Blade Runner” — as well as “The Omen,” “Young Frankenstein,” “Braveheart,” “Chariots of Fire,” and other cinema biggies through 2007’s “Gone Baby Gone.”

The executive is now the subject of a documentary, “It’s Always About the Story: Conversations With Alan Ladd Jr.,” which screens Aug. 13 at the Marina del Rey Festival before it continues on the festival circuit. The doc is one of four films (so far) in the Film History Preservation Project. It’s the brainchild of director-producer Stanley Isaacs, who is planning more such docs, to bring wider recognition to Hollywood’s unsung heroes: film producers.

Film buffs know stars and directors, but rarely know producers or executives like Ladd, »

Soundtracks Of Our Lives: The Romeo + Juliet soundtrack captured 1996’s awkward phase

10 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Some things are best appreciated by the very young: Clove cigarettes. Wine coolers. The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Others are emblematic of a certain time or place, and regardless of their quality, will always have a faint stink of that era on them, like somebody who showers but only wears that weird crystal deodorant from the health food store. The soundtrack to 1996’s Romeo + Juliet, starring Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio as Shakespeare’s most tragic horny teens, is both of these things. It was also, appropriately enough, nearly ubiquitous during my seventh-grade year, a puberty that happened to coincide with similar growing pains in popular music.

In the year that alt-rock died and the Spice Girls were born, the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack represented a shift in thinking, away from the heroin-addled authenticity of grunge and toward the ecstasy-fueled celebration of artificiality that would encase the remainder of the ...

Laverne Cox Opens Up About How The Rocky Horror Picture Show Impacted Her Before Her Transition

9 August 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even though Laverne Cox is stepping into the iconic role of Dr. Frank-n-Furter in the 2016 remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the actress admitted she didn't see the musical until fairly late in life. "I didn't discover Rocky Horror until college," Cox told reporters at Monday's Fox All-Star Party in Los Angeles. "The first time I saw it, I was like, 'What is this? This is me.' It felt like me. Frank-n-Furter felt like me.""At the time, I hadn't started transitioning yet, but I was sort of in the androgynous space. I had a shaved head and »

‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Cast Promises to Pay Homage to Original, Raves About Laverne Cox

8 August 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

More than four decades after the original movie hit theaters, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is coming back — to TV.

The cast of Fox’s remake — which includes “Rocky Horror” vet Tim Curry as the narrator this time around — joined together on Monday at the Television Critics Association press tour at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., to discuss paying homage to the original.

“Be true to the original, but make it contemporary” is the mantra set by executive producer Lou Adler.

The cast all agreed that their new “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is not a direct remake of the original, but rather a celebration of the iconic flick.

“I don’t believe that we are re-making anything,” said Ben Vereen, who is playing Dr. Scott. “To me, this is not a remake. You cannot remake the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show.’ But you can pay tribute and honor it. That »

8 August 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Getting Tim Curry, the original Frank-n-Furter, to participate in Fox’s remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show [watch trailer below] was critical to overcoming push-back by rabid fans of the 70’s musical comedy-horror cult film. “As you can imagine, when we announced we were doing this, there was tremendous backlash from fans,” Ep Lou Adler said today at TCA. Adler also was an exec producer of the original movie. When Curry became involved “that all loosened up and they… »

Remembering the Howard The Duck videogame

4 August 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chris Cummins Aug 24, 2016

To go with the film, Howard The Duck got a videogame in 1986. A hidden retro gem? Well, not exactly...

Following the release of Howard The Duck in 1986, I found myself becoming downright obsessed with the film. I knew that it was considered the year's biggest flop, but that didn't disuade me one bit from my mission to track down everything related to the movie I could get my hands on.

Being something of an indoor kid who spent his time reading comics and playing games on the Commodore 64, I secretly wished that the video game gods would grant me a Howard The Duck tie-in game despite the movie's failure at the box office. Then, while reading through a magazine at a local book shop some months later, I saw an ad that made my pre-pubsecent heart stop. It seemed that my wishes had come true and Activision, »
