Brandon Routh, George Lazenby and the one-hit movie wonders

8 July 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes," it's claimed Andy Warhol once said. Some stars shine much brighter than others, though, and in the case of Hollywood we often see actors hit big early before disappearing without trace.

Brandon Routh, who delivered a sensitive and assured turn as the Man of Steel in 2006's Superman Returns, is one such example. Routh never quite got the breaks he deserved after landing that life-changing role, so it's nice to see him back in the superhero game with an upcoming role as Atom in Arrow.

Digital Spy takes a look back at a handful of stars who couldn't escape their one big role.

Brandon Routh

Plucked from relative obscurity to lead Bryan Singer's lavish Superman sequel, Routh impressively channelled Christopher Reeve on his big screen debut but found leading man roles difficult to come by in the aftermath.

The Exorcist Complete Anthology Coming to Blu-ray

24 June 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Regan MacNeil, Father Lankester Merrin, Lieutenant William F. Kinderman: in The Exorcist film series, these and other characters encountered demons in varying ways, and soon you can experience each one’s trial by fire with the upcoming release of all six films in The Exorcist series on Blu-ray.

With a street date of September 23rd, Warner Bros. is spreading the high-definition treatment across The Exorcist series like never before. The 6-disc anthology Blu-ray will be listed at about $36.00, with each of the available individual Blu-ray releases set to sell for around $17.00.

While the original film, directed by William Friedkin and based on the 1971 novel by William Peter Blatty, had previously been released on Blu-ray in both its original and extended editions, the sequels have never received this type of high-definition upgrade. It should be noted that both director Renny Harlin’s (Exorcist: The Beginning) and Paul Schrader’s (Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist »

Exorcist Anthology Blu-ray Collection on the Way

24 June 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Warner Bros. is getting in on the "collection craze" and intends to bring The Exorcist series to Blu-ray. This will include The Exorcist, The Exorcist: Director's Cut, Exorcist II: The Heretic, The Exorcist III, Exorcist IV: The Beginning and Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist. Special features haven't been revealed yet, however, we know it comes out on September 23rd. Below you'll find the official "sell" from WB. This is a bit of a bummer because I was sort of holding on to hope that Scream Factory would somehow leverage the relationship...

The Exorcist Anthology heading to Blu-ray

24 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There is no official word yet, but the good folk over at Dread Central have unearthed a sales sheet that shows plans to release The Exorcist Anthology on Blu-ray.

The set will include the theatrical cut of William Friedkin’s The Exorcist as well as the extended Director’s Cut, Exorcist II: The Heretic, Exorcist III, Exorcist: The Beginning, and Dominion: Prequel to The Exorcist.

Further to the anthology release, all Blu-rays will be released singularly, but oddly with the exception of Dominion: Prequel to The Exorcist. Guess you’ll have to pay the full price if you want to get your hands on that one.

Considered one of the most controversial movies of all-time, The Exorcist was released in 1973 and has been labelled as one of the scariest movies ever made. The film was thought to be banned in the UK but actually it just wasn’t submitted to »

Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies

10 June 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I have a curious habit, maybe you have it too, if you are a real movie geek, film fan, cinema addict, what have you.

A certain number of movies that I have seen and loved with all my heart were losers at the box office or were mercilessly slammed by critics, usually both. This doesn’t happen all the time, mind you. I know a bad movie when I see one. But several times I have seen a movie on opening day and loved it so much I was sure it would be a big hit and be loved by critics and film goers, nope, not all the time.

Here then is my own personal and highly eccentric top ten list, with some honorable mentions, of movies that lost out, yet I love them still, many of them desperately, hysterically, madly do I love these films, well anyway… let me tell you about it. »

In Defence Of... Grease 2, Michelle Pfeiffer's much-maligned sequel

22 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A mainstay of worst-sequels-ever-made lists, squirming alongside the likes of Batman & Robin, Speed 2 and Exorcist II: The Heretic, Grease 2 was roundly lambasted upon its 1982 release and its critical reputation has nose-dived ever since. Here's a film that cost $11.2m to make (£6.7m) - almost twice the budget of its much-loved, popular culture-bothering forerunner - and yet failed to secure the return of its two stars, John Travolta and Olivier Newton-John, or its composers, Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey.

It entered its 58-day shoot working from an unfinished script, with Didi Conn (reappearing as Frenchy, though she vanishes halfway through the movie) calling the production "rushed, frantic and unorganised". Its stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield failed to get along, Pfeiffer later labelling her on-screen lover as "self-adoring". It turned away a young Tom Cruise for the role of T-Birds leader Johnny Nogerelli, instead plumping for the strikingly uncharismatic Adrian Zmed. »

15 Nauseating Horror Sequels

3 January 2014 8:00 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The flavor of bile is unmistakable. There just isn’t anything that tastes quite like it. And you know it when it comes on: The belly rumbles, the esophagus lurches within, and you battle back the slimy liquid that threatens to spew forth from your lips.

It’s a nasty experience. We all hate that sensation so we’re taking measures at Dread Central to help prevent such a situation from occurring.

See, there are horror sequels out there that are so horrifically bad they somehow trigger something in our internal systems... and the belly begins to rumble. We wish you no stomach troubles here, and we certainly wish the taste of bile on no man or woman. So we’re going to provide you with a list of sequels to avoid at all costs because if you check these out, you’ll be searching for the toothbrush in no time! »
