Timeless Media have released the epic 1976 adventure film Shout at the Devil as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The movie, produced by Michael Klinger and directed by Peter Hunt, is an big budget affair very much in the style of John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King, which was released the previous year. Both films follow the antics of a couple of charismatic rogues in exotic settings. The film is based on the novel by author Wilbur Smith, who also co-wrote the screenplay. The movie was shot in between Roger Moore's second and third James Bond films, The Man With the Golden Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me and boasts a "who's who" of Eon Productions talent. Peter Hunt had edited the early Bond films and directed On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Ironically, Moore and Hunt never worked on a 007 film together but in »

From the arrival of cinema and a train steaming into La Ciotat Station cinema audiences have long been in love with both the fast and the furious. The adage ‘the car’s the star’ has long been evident in Hollywood’s annals with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Herbie, the Batmobile or the family of Minis (Minions?) in The Italian Job taking centre stage and linger in the memory.
In association with the people from Van Monster we stood atop our internet tower and gazed at the past, then plucked five of the most iconic vehicles to appear in movies.
5) 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
As featured in: Smokey And The Bandit (1977)

We walk in through an innocuous doorway and we are, suddenly, in another world; there is something about Pinewood’s 007 stage which takes your breath away.

James Bond and Jack Ryan may share some DNA despite the Atlantic separation but today they collide and there is a tangible excitement in the air.
They are shooting a fight scene, it is an intense and brutal challenge for Chris Pine, the latest Ryan, and his fellow actors but this is a necessary evil in the post-Bourne action thriller landscape. The Pinewood stage has been built into an underground sewer system and, as you’d expect, the illusion is pitch perfect. Pine is wading through the torrential river of water which, »

In an era when studios are increasingly relying on franchises to boost their bottom lines, it’s no small feat to be the gatekeeper of the longest-running film series in Hollywood history.
For nearly two decades, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, the daughter and stepson of the late James Bond producer Albert “Cubby” Broccoli, have managed to keep the suave Agent 007 relevant to modern-day audiences in the face of significant competition from other high-octane action franchises — and studio turmoil that put Bond on hiatus more than once. The two have survived numerous regime changes at Bond’s home base, MGM, as they’ve fought to keep the Broccoli family business intact.
Broccoli, 53, and Wilson, 71, who reside in London and are being honored Jan. 19 by the Producers Guild of America with the David O. Selznick Award for lifetime achievement, have protectively watched over Bond as a team since 1995, and guarded »
