Watch: 'Spaceballs' Gets a Makeover with an 'Interstellar' Style Trailer

23 minutes ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For fans of Star Wars, there are few comedies that bring as much joy as Mel Brooks' classic spoof Spaceballs. From Rick Moranis' great turn as the villain Dark Helmet to the late Joan Rivers as a scratchy voiced, lady C-3Po named Dot Matrix, there's just so much to love about this movie. And while Brooks is a master of comedy (he even planned a joke that will last forever with his Hollywood Walk of Fame handprint this year), YouTube user The Unusual Suspect has decided to give Spaceballs a dramatic makeover by giving the film a trailer in the style of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, and it's pretty cool. Here's the Interstellar style trailer for Mel Brooks' Spaceballs from YouTube (via Live For Films): For more on Interstellar see: fan-art posters, five new TV spots, third official trailer and the official website.

Watch: 'Spaceballs' Gets The 'Interstellar' Trailer Treatment, Matthew McConaughey Says Nolan's Film "Challenges Mankind"

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Iif you can't roll with "Spaceballs," we don't know if we can hang with you. The 1987 Mel Brooks comedy, featuring Yogurt, Barf, Dark Helmet, Lone Starr, Princess Vespa, Dot Matrix, and John Hurt is fantastic send up of the "Star Wars" series and sci-fi movies in general, and thus ripe for a trailer mashup. And so The Usual Suspect (via Live For Films) has pulled together paired clips from "Spaceballs" with the music and structure of the "Interstellar" trailer, and it makes us want to discover the Schwartz all over again. As for Nolan's movie, according to star Matthew McConaughey, its themes of science, humanity and the spirit of adventure which fueled humanity's greatest accomplishments are the basis of "Interstellar." "Those parts of the film are very relevant today. If you’re looking at Nasa, literally. This film challenges mankind, but at the same time has faith in it," he told The New York. »

Batgirl, Mr. Incredible Fight on Hollywood Boulevard; Waldo, Chewbacca Try to Save the Day—Watch Now!

1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Superheroes are supposed to fight crime—not each other! Batgirl (or Catwoman, depending on how you interpret her ensemble) and Mr. Incredible must not have gotten that memo, because the two costumed characters got into quite the brawl this week on Hollywood Boulevard. Fortunately, a man dressed as Waldo (from Where's Waldo) and another in costume as Star Wars' Chewbacca tried to break up Batgirl and Mr. Incredible's fight, and all of it was caught on camera! Jimmy Kimmel Live got footage of the superhero scuffle, and on Wednesday's show, the late-night host tried to figure out just what went down between the supposed superheroes in the first place. And while he couldn't track down all the »

Dallas Comic Con's Fan Days 2014 Event Report

4 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Dallas Comic Con's Fan Days 2014 wasn’t as hectic an event as May’s monstrous blow-out, but it still provided plenty of fun for attendees. Held back at the familiar Irving Convention Center, it was better organized than in the past and only had some minor issues.

The biggest draws of the week came from the media guests. After folks got over the disappointment of several canceled appearances, there still found plenty to do. A mini-Goonies reunion occurred with Corey Feldman and Ke Huy Quan sitting mere feet from each other. Sean Astin was in attendance as well, completing not only that partial reunion, but a Lord of the Rings one with fellow guest Elijah Wood.

Having met Corey Feldman years before at Texas Fearfest, I wanted to catch up with the busy former Lost Boy and Goonie. His new movie The M Word is about to come out on DVD for one. »

Disney loses John Carter rights, new studio sought to continue the franchise

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Considering the studio took a $200 million loss on its first foray to Barsoom, it will come as little surprise to hear that Disney has given up on the movie, television and merchandise rights to John Carter, with the property now reverting back to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. However, this may be good news for fans hoping to see more of Burroughs’ Martian adventures on the big screen, as the company is now seeking a new studio to continue the franchise.

John Carter of Mars was the creative stimulus behind such movie classics as Superman, Star Wars and Avatar,” said James Sullos, President. “Edgar Rice Burroughs was the Master of Adventure and his literary works continue to enjoy a world-wide following. We will be seeking a new partner to help develop new adventures on film as chronicled in the eleven Mars novels Burroughs wrote. This adventure never stops. Along with a »

Hishe Bonus Clips for Man Of Steel, Amazing Spider-man 2, and More

17 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The team at How It Should Have Ended make fun and frenetic videos that give us alternate endings to big blockbuster films. Sometimes those endings are just playful and silly. Often, though, the “what if” endings point out large plot holes in the films they parody. The final video we see contains just a small fraction of the hilarious ideas they (and sometimes you) come up with. So what do they do with all those extra scenes that just don’t make it in? They make a compilation of cut clips, that’s what.

Often we write too many sketches when creating a Hishe and some scenes get left out. Sometimes they are cut because it didn't fit the flow of the main video. Sometimes they are cut because they aren't finished in time. Well rather than let them collect dust we bundled them all together in one collection so »

Star Wars 7 Might Include This Cool Nod To Han Solo's Past

17 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The last time that Han Solo dressed as a Stormtrooper, things didn't exactly go super well. Sure, he was able to sneak into the Death Star alongside Luke, Chewbacca, C-3Po and R2-D2, but the end result involved him getting shot at, getting stuck in a disgusting garbage compactor and almost crushed to death, getting shot at again, and then running for his life. One would understand why the rogue smuggler would never want to dress in Imperial armor again, but that won't stop it from happening in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, if new rumors are to be believed. TheForce.net has purged a bunch of tiny little rumors about next chapter in the legendary sci-fi saga, but the one that really caught our eye points to what may be a funny little reference to the events in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Disney loses 'John Carter' rights: What's next for the franchise?

18 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

John Carter was not the hit Disney hoped for at the box office. The studio reportedly lost $200 million on the film, expecting it to launch a blockbuster franchise but instead delivering a Taylor Kitsch-fronted flop. There are some admittedly interesting ideas and imagery in the film, but there's no denying its critical and commercial failure. Still, some left a candle burning in the hopes that the John Carter of Mars franchise was not dead. And now it seems the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs may live on—just not at Disney. Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. announced on Tuesday, Oct. »

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

19 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

Watch: 'Star Wars' Prequels Recut Into 2 Hour 40 Minute 'Turn to the Darkside: Episode 3.1'

20 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Recently blasting Hollywood studios by saying "they don't have any imagination and they don't have any talent,” George Lucas might be advised to look in his own rearview mirror, particularly at the years spanning 1999 and 2005. That was when he released his "Star Wars" prequels, a digitally cumbersome, narratively dull disappointment that found the filmmaker taking his rich, imaginative universe to the dullest places possible. Fans, including the likes of Topher Grace, have all tried their hands at recuts, and now one more has arrived for your viewing pleasure (probably until the wrath of Disney and Lucasfilm legal departments take it down). And so, here's "Turn To The Darkside: Episode 3.1" from Double Digit, which takes all three prequels and tries to whittle it down to the essentials, cutting out the crap about trade embargoes and focusing more on the central relationship between Anakin and Padmé. Here's the statement of intent from the. »

Does Anyone Want to Make ‘John Carter 2’? Or Maybe 9 Other Movies?

23 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As an anonymous high school student once sort of wrote (no, really), “If you want something very, very badly, let it go free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, it was never yours to begin with.” Walt Disney Pictures has apparently decided to put their own twist on this little bit of life advice, letting go of something they didn’t love or want very much, desperately hoping it never comes back to them again. According to a press release over at PR Web (via Cinema Blend), all rights to Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ “John Carter” series have reverted back to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. — and, yes, that includes all movie, television and merchandise rights. For Disney, this might come as a bit of a relief, as their 2012 feature film John Carter is one of the studio’s biggest flops ever (Disney claimed an $84M loss on the film, which »

Star Wars: Episode VII scene description and set photos featuring Stormtroopers

22 October 2014 4:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to fan site Making Star Wars, we’ve got a pair of new set photos from Star Wars: Episode VII, which – if you squint and look very, very closely – just about shows the white blur of an Imperial Stormtrooper. Take a look at the images, followed by a scene description below…

Some images are from the lot where they seem to be dumping a lot of trees, vines and rocks which I believe must be props, the other 4 are from the area around the blue screens, the castle/megaliths/ruins…and a Stormtrooper, well, just about.

Unfortunately they’re not quite as vivid as we’d have liked, but with a bit of zooming you should definitely be able to make out the Stormtrooper. There were 4 I think in this area, running through the explosions, I think I remember another 4 or so coming from the opposite direction, but that was not all… »

Sons of Anarchy’s Jimmy Smits on Nero’s Decision and Hooking Up With the Boss’s Wife

21 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Spoilers for this week's episode of Sons of Anarchy. Every time he thinks he’s out, they pull him back in! Nero Padilla, the pimp Jimmy Smits plays on Sons of Anarchy, has long been discussing an exit strategy from the flesh-peddling business. But can anyone ever really escape Charming, California? In this week’s episode, “Greensleeves,” Nero tried to talk his ladylove Gemma (Katey Sagal) into splitting town, but instead she recruited him for a Samcro mission to help a dead gay preacher’s widow kick heroin. (If you don’t watch SoA, don’t ask.) Smits spoke with Vulture about Nero’s gut, why he’s not reprising his role in the new Star Wars, and — oh yeah — that time Pee-wee Herman introduced him to Madonna.Why has Nero decided to quit now — is it because all of his girls were killed?There are just too many bad fuckin’ things happening. »

Poll: How Do You Feel About Ezra Miller Playing The Big Screen Version Of The Flash

21 October 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The response to Ezra Miller being cast as The Flash has been vocal to say the least. Some fans believe he's completely wrong for the role due to the fact he shares very few similarities with the Barry Allen from the comic books, while others would have preferred to see the small scren Flash (Grant Gustin) get the chance to speed onto the big screen. The casting appeared to come out of nowhere, though Miller's physical similarities to Adam Driver (who was said to be up for the role of Nightwing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before picking Star Wars Episode VII) could mean that the actor playing The Fastest Man Alive was being decided on long before we even realised!  Anyone who has seen The Perks of Being a Wallflower or We Need to Talk About Kevin will know that Miller is an incredible actor, and there's »

Delightful Star Wars Comic Book Cover Art by Skottie Young

21 October 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Artist Skottie Young created this wonderfully adorable trilogy of interlocking comic book cover art for Marvel's new Star Wars comic based on the classic movies. These comics will be set shortly after the destruction of the first Death Star in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The three comics are being coordinated with Lucasfilm to make sure that they line up with both the original films and whatever is coming in Episode VII, VIII, IX and whatever else Lucasfilm in planning. The three comics they are developing are:

Princess Leia #1, kicking off a five-issue miniseries in March, 2015 by writer Mark Waid and artist Terry Dodson.

Star Wars #1, launching in January, 2015 from writer Jason Aaron and artist John Cassaday.

Darth Vader #1, following close behind in February, 2015 by Kieron Gillen with art by Salvador Larroca.

Young talked about the project in a statement he gave to MTV:
