Director John Badman looks back at his disco classic four decades later...
Saturday Night Fever is the film that made John Travolta into a legitimate star, launched the Bee Gees to the pinnacle of pop success and introduced the world to the subculture, music and fashion of disco dancing - specifically the scene in the clubs of the insular blue collar Brooklyn neighbourhood of Bay Ridge. The movie made the scene and music into a national phenomenon that lasted several years, until the disco craze petered out in the early '80s.

The whole thing was based on a New York magazine article called 'Tribal Rites Of The New Saturday Night', written by a British journalist named »
“You make it with some of these chicks, they think you gotta dance with them.”
In 1977, Saturday Night Fever became a cultural touchestone like few movies before or since, and this May fans can catch the fever again when the influential classic returns to the big screen for two days only in celebration of its 40th anniversary.
Director John Badham worked with Paramount Pictures to restore the film using the original negative and update the surround sound mix to further enhance viewers’ enjoyment of the incredible soundtrack. During this process he added scenes to the theatrical R-rated version that round out character and plot, making this new Director’s Cut the definitive representation of his original vision.

Saluting the movie characters who make an impression, the minute they appear on the screen...
One thing that unites all of cinema’s most iconic characters is that they were able to make a memorable first impression. Whether it’s bursting onto the scene in a flurry of noise or slowly skulking their way into shot, there’s a fine art to ensuring a character makes an instant impact on screen. An iconic entrance is not just about a momentary impact however, it can also emphasise a character’s importance and help to cement their influence over the rest of the movie.
There are any number of contributory factors that can be blended together in order to make an entrance truly memorable. These include the accompanying music, the choice of camera shot, the »
Once again, Wamg attended the 2017 Turner Classic Movie Film Festival in Hollywood, and as always, it did not disappoint!
Ahhh…so many movies, so little time to cover everything, but here are some highlights of my favorite movies of this year’s festival.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Shown poolside at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, this classic was perfect for opening night. Brightly colored inflatable balls and lights floated in the pool like some of Wonka’s best candies as guests enjoyed snacks and cocktails on a beautiful spring evening. In attendance for this special screening were some of the cast members of the original movie. Miss Veruca Salt herself, Julie Dawn Cole; Mike Teevee, also known as Paris Themmen; and one of the original Oompaloompas, Rusty Goffe.
Along with host Illeana Douglas, they recounted some great memories of being on the set of the film in Germany more than 45 years ago. »

It was a classic hit in 1977 and the song will hold up until the end of time. “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees will always go down as the song John Travolta struts to in Saturday Night Fever. That memorable scene of Travolta walking down the street acting cool and fashionable has been mimicked time and time again in movies and television and remains a classic to this day. The song itself is almost an anthem for confidence and bravado. If you’re walking down the street and start blasting “Stayin’ Alive” it’s like you’re put into another dimension of

Timberlake is up for "Can't Stop the Feeling" from Trolls. Sting will sing his nominated song from Jim: The James Foley Story, and Legend will perform »

When Princess Diana visited President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, at the White House in 1985, she stepped onto the ballroom dance floor — with a man known for his electrifying moves on the big screen.
Diana took the hand of John Travolta, star of Grease and Saturday Night Fever, and the pair gracefully spun around the checkered floor for nearly 30 minutes. The dance would become one of the most iconic moments of her life — and the velvet dress she wore for the occasion instantly assumed its place in her hall-of-fame looks.
Now, fans can revisit that moment at Kensington Palace’s new exhibit, »

On Sunday, Demi Lovato (rocking a crazy-cool look), Tori Kelly, Little Big Town, and Andra Day came together to pay tribute to one of the greatest musical acts of all time (yeah, I said it), the Bee Gees. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever and its legendary soundtrack, and the medley proves that some of those songs, like "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Stayin' Alive," will always be in style . . . unlike John Travolta's white disco suit. »

The Grammys blessed us with a lot this year - Blue Ivy's adorable existence, Adele's relatable personality, Rihanna drinking from a diamond-encrusted flask - but one thing we weren't expecting was to fall in love with new celebrity friendships. That's exactly what happened, however, when Lady Gaga and John Travolta both attended the Interscope afterparty at the Peppermint Club. John, who poked fun at himself during the show, busted out some of his Saturday Night Fever dance moves when he partied with Gaga. Sorry in advance if "Stayin' Alive" is stuck in your head now. »

James Corden hosted the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday, in an evening filled with some touching tributes, some unusual acceptance speeches and a whole lot of Blue Ivy!
From Beyonce's unbelievable and hypnotic performance to Adele's non-stop run of emotional wins to Lady Gaga crowd surfing for some reason, here's a look at the best, worst and downright weirdest moments from music's biggest night.
Adele Opens the Show (With Her Ring)
After her previous glitchy performance at the GRAMMYs, Adele returned to the stage to open this year's show and her flawless delivery of "Hello" had people in tears. However, many watching at home were just as obsessed with the sparkling band on her ring finger, adding fuel to the rumors that she secretly got engaged to -- or even married -- her boyfriend, Simon Konecki »
“There will be more comedy,” said executive producer Ken Ehrlich, who has worked on the show for nearly 40 years. “We’ve carved out some blocks for him.”
“Hosts have learned in the past, to try and implement their own show on to bigger award shows is a mistake,” said “Late Late Show” executive producer Ben Winston, who’s also working on the Grammys. “Therefore it won’t be that.”
But Ehrlich said Corden and Winston are planning a twist on the “Carpool” idea that will fit the Grammy Awards and satisfy fans.
