The 25 Best Romantic Comedies Since When Harry Met Sally

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Today — July 14 — is the twenty-fifth anniversary of When Harry Met Sally, and Vulture will be celebrating throughout the week. First up: a look back at the legacy of the Nora Ephron classic. (This article was originally published in February.) Twenty-five years ago, When Harry Met Sally revolutionized the romantic comedy. Sure, this film genre had been around since the earliest days of cinema, and had once been the domain of giants like Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch and Stanley Donen. But Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron’s 1989 hit, with its slick, highly quotable back-and-forth between Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, as well as its oddly self-reflective quality, felt like something strange and new — the Star Wars of romantic comedies. It wasn’t just a romantic comedy, it was a rom-com. We’ve been living in its wake ever since, and Valentine's Day seemed like a good time to look at »

Is ‘Star Wars VII’ Filming In Gloucestershire?

1 hour ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rumour alert! Could Star Wars VII be filming in a picturesque Gloucestershire location? It has come to our attention that parts of Puzzlewood Forest has recently been closed to the public so a production crew can film in secrecy. Puzzlewood Forest is no stranger to film crews with Harry Potter and Dr Who having previously used the location.

A source close to Thn told us that the owners revealed that this production is of a much bigger magnitude than anything else they have hosted. What is bigger than Potter and Who? The only thing that we can think of is J. J Abrams Star Wars VII. If it is indeed Star Wars filming, could this mean a return to Yoda’s old residence, planet Dagobah? Or will we be reunited with the Ewoks on the forest moon of Endor?

The studios are yet to confirm the news and the location »

Harrison Ford's 7 Greatest Roles

13 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Legendary actor Harrison Ford Turns 72 today, and in his impressive career he has been responsible for developing two of the most iconic movie characters in American pop culture.

To celebrate the man who created so many characters we all desperate wished we could be growing up – and honestly still kind of wish we could be – we take a celebratory look at Harrison's seven greatest roles.

#7. Dr. Richard Kimble – The Fugitive

Ford plays a man wrongly convicted of his wife's murder who – due to random circumstance – escapes from custody in a frantic effort to find the real killer and clear his name. All the while, he's hunted down by Us Marshall Tommy Lee Jones, which would be terrifying for anyone.

Best Quote: "When I came home, there was a man in my house. I fought with this man. He had a mechanical arm. You find this man. You find this man."

Celebrating The Last Starfighter’s 30th Anniversary with Co-Stars Lance Guest & Catherine Mary Stewart

16 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On July 13, 1984, Nick Castle’s The Last Starfighter was released in theaters everywhere by Universal Studios. Written by Jonathan Betuel and starring newcomers Lance Guest and Catherine Mary Stewart, as well as seasoned actors like Robert Preston and Dan O’Herlihy, The Last Starfighter was a landmark film of its time in regards to what it managed to accomplish with CGI graphics and quickly became my personal Star Wars once I discovered it in late 1985 on VHS.

For those who may have never experienced Castle’s underrated classic feel-good sci-fi tale, The Last Starfighter follows teenager Alex Rogan (Guest) who is recruited to be part of an alien defense force after he beats a video game. A trailer park kid who never expected his life to be anything but ordinary, Alex is suddenly tasked with saving the universe from the evil Emperor Xur (Norman Snow), who has wiped out all that oppose him, »

Zachary Quinto Talks 'Star Trek 3', Expects Original 5-Year Mission Will Play a Role

12 July 2014 7:36 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Writer/director Roberto Orci has already spoken about the planned trajectory for Star Trek 3 saying the next installment will take the crew of the Starship Enterprise "closer to the original series characters" as they "set off on their five-year mission." Now Zachary Quinto, who will again reprise his role as Spock, reiterated Orci's sentiments in front of an audience on Friday at the Television Critics Press Tour (via Variety). "I think the five-year mission will be a part of this next film in some way... We're coming up on the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic sci-fi series in entertainment history so it's inherently an ongoing story," Quinto said. "But I do think that we'll feel some sense of evolution in these characters that's been building through the first few films." The "five-year mission" is a reference to the opening monologue read by Captain Kirk (William Shatner »

Top 5: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Guardians Of The Galaxy Set Visit, Gone Girl Trailer, Boyhood, Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer

12 July 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

New to Blu-ray this week is the fascinating documentary Jodorowsky's Dune. I caught the film earlier today and have no reservation calling it a must-see for sci-fi fans. Seeing Alejandro Jodorowsky passionately recant the events that led to his convincing the likes of Orson Welles and Salvador Dalí to join the pic is a joy in its own right, but illustrating the impact his unmade movie had on future science-fiction films is one of the doc's greatest achievements. The level of imagination, creativity, detail, and ambition that Jodorowsky and his visionary team put into their adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal sci-fi novel is staggering and a bit awe-inspiring when you consider its influence on future entries such as Star Wars, Alien, The Terminator, and more. Ahead of its time doesn't even begin to describe it. For better or worse, I'm not sure that the world is prepared for the »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Preview: 10 Things That Got Us Excited

12 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

Earlier this week, we got a chance to see 17 minutes of the newest Marvel movie Guardians Of The Galaxy and what we saw has us excited indeed. This movie was always the riskiest proposition of Marvel’s Phase Two and although there has been a fair amount of optimism, Marvel have been on such a roll that some were worried they may be overreaching with a comparatively little known property like Guardians.

Fans needn’t have worried.

Whoever was responsible for selecting the footage that screened did a great job, as it addressed all the nagging questions relating to the movie since it was announced. The section began with the familiar line up scene from the trailers and then showed the Guardians’ first meeting, in a space prison policed by corrupt Nova Corps (Marvel’s space cops), before offering a taste of some action as they subsequently escaped: »

10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (July 12)

12 July 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s Saturday, so you know what that means! It’s time for the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief, where we bring you the hottest movie and television related news to hit the web over the last week. In the last installment I mentioned that the Hollywood news cycle was slowing down a bit… but that has seemingly changed this week, as we have a lot to talk about today!

These recaps tend to be a bit superhero and blockbuster heavy, but this week Tinseltown gave us a bit more to work with, creating a more evenly balanced array of news items to talk about. On one end of the spectrum we have updates on Ridley Scott’s next biblical epic, and the upcoming spin-off of The Conjuring (which gives me nightmares from the premise alone). Then we’ve got news about TV shows like True Detective, »

Hot Wheels just released a photo of their awesome looking Star Wars inspired R2-D2 roadster!

Star Wars: Episode VII Delay Rumors Pop Up Once Again

11 July 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Here we are again folks, after a lot of back and forth on rumors and even an official press release saying things were still on track for a December 2015 release, there's a chance that Star Wars: Episode VII could be pushed back to May 2016.  The reasons aren't exactly what you might think, however, and have more to do with studio politics than anything.  Come inside to check out the latest report and sound off with your thoughts. 

Over the weekend, you may have seen the announcement from Lucasfilm that two new cast members had joined Star Wars: Episode VIIOn top of that, they announced a 2-week hiatus of filming to re-schedule some things, but ultimately the film was on track for it's December release date.  This seemed to end the matter of the persistent rumors surrounding the film that the film would be delayed due to Harrison Ford's injury. »

Star Wars: May The 2016 Be With You?

11 July 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Wtf is this post? That's not how you spell Star Wars.  It's me, Da7e, basically a waste of carbon, because I spend all my time thinking about things I like and other people who like those things. This is my weekly column where I discuss news, rumors and happenings in the world of Star Wars

Spoilers? Usually, but not this week.

I thought this was all over two weeks ago, but maybe it isn't. 

Here’s a rumbling from the deep behind-the-scenes that I cannot confirm: Jj Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy aren’t done wrestling with Bob Iger to push Star Wars: Episode VII back into 2016 with Batman, Superman and Captain America.

I’ve only heard pieces of this from two sources and they don’t necessarily corroborate each other. Previously in this space, we discussed how Abrams and Kennedy wanted a May 2016 release date but Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, »

Why It Worked: Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

11 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There are a few science fiction franchises out there that are generally considered to be untouchable and above almost any reproach; classics, in every sense of the word. Never mind that some of them may have been diminished, watered down, or even ruined throughout the years, thanks to Hollywood's obsession with unnecessary spin-offs and prequels/sequels galore. But no matter how diluted certain franchises may have eventually become, the originals still manage to stick with us for any number of memorable reasons. Star Wars, Star Trek, the Alien franchise, Close Encounters, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, and E.T. are probably among the first sci/fi movies to jump to mind. But I believe there's a strong case to be made for Planet of the Apes.  This is probably one of the more underappreciated epics that has ever come out of this specific genre of movies.

Critical Mass: Hail, Caesar and 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'

11 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

There’s a lot at stake with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: human supremacy on a post-apocalyptic Earth, the well-being of a 45-year-old franchise property… the summer box office.

With ticket sales down across the board, Dawn finds itself in the once unlikely position of summer savior. The 2011 reboot, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which starred James Franco and Andy Serkis as the motion-capture Prometheus ape, Caesar, was a solid critical and popular hit, grossing $176.7 million.

Expectation are much higher for Dawn, which is set 10 years after the events of Rise. Humanity has been devastated by the simian flu, »

Star Wars Reveals Its Comic-Con Plans

11 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Deep down, in the backs of our minds, we held a sliver of hope that J.J. "Mystery Box" Abrams would bring a snippet of footage from Star Wars: Episode VII to San Diego Comic-Con, just to keep the intense heat of fan interest blazing on the wildly anticipated sequel. But reports have now surfaced that Star Wars (basically) is skipping Comic-Con once again, dashing the hopes of young Jedi everywhere. Deadline breaks the news that will break thousands of hearts, stating that "sources close to the production and at Comic-Con" have confirmed that Disney and LucasFilm have no plans to bring Star Wars: Episode VII to San Diego. There won.t be a complete absence of Star Wars content at the Con, however. Disney Xd will hold a panel for its animated Star Wars Rebels series on Thursday, July 24. That panel is expected to include executive producers Dave Filoni »
