The Stephen King Stories which need to be Adapted for the Big Screen

13 hours ago | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Over the years, the incredible work of Stephen King has been adapted to both film and television with varying results. Many of these have failed to remain true to the source material, and while that still in some cases resulted in a hit (The Shining), it also saw the release of an awful lot of misses too (looking at you Dreamcatcher).

Much of King’s best work has already been adapted, though some are being remade. The Shining meanwhile is set to receive a prequel and sequel, and while Under the Dome is a good example of one of his lengthier novels working as a TV series, there are still plenty of others which have yet to reach the big or small screen.

Here, we take a look at ten more Stephen King novels which have yet to be brought to life as a movie. Some you will have likely heard of, »

FrightFest 2014: 'The Shining' review

25 August 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece The Shining (1980) is one of those rare films that has found itself submerged into the public consciousness across several generations. Continually parodied in popular culture, from The Simpsons to Family Guy, even those yet to have seen Jack Nicholson's maniacal lead performance as Jack Torrance may well feel like they know the film backwards. This Film4 FrightFest 2014 appearance of Kubrick's classic - the reworked Us theatrical cut of the film which is shorter than other incarnations - couldn't have come at a much more pertinent time to examine just why this blood-curdling tale remains one of the best horror films ever made.

Director David Jung Gives a Look Into The Possession of Michael King

21 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Shane Johnson is highly effective in the title role of The Possession of Michael King. Now the man behind the camera and the story speaks out about the movie. Director David Jung sat down with Dread Central to discuss The Possession of Michael King.

Jung began by discussing his inspiration for writing the story, which he co-penned with Tedi Sarafian. "The Shining played a very important role," Jung said. "I wanted to do a movie from the Pov of Jack Torrance, the character Jack Nicholson played."

He explained, "I felt like no one had done that before, had the main character in the film be the one that’s slowly going mad, and documenting and talking about the process in an almost scientific way as it's happening. I love movies about transformation, especially horror films. David Cronenberg’s The Fly is one of my all-time favorite films."

First Trailer and Poster for Stephen King Thriller A Good Marriage

20 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There are plenty of familiar Stephen King adaptations in the works (including a prequel and sequel to The Shining), but A Good Marriage somehow flew under all of our radars. It’s based on one of the author’s many short stories, and King actually adapted the story himself (as he did for Pet Semetary and Cell) for this movie.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, King had this to say about adapting his story:


“I’ve seen enough movies adapted from my work to know that the things that work the best are the things that aren’t too long and aren’t too short. Some of the stories, when they get expanded, they go in the wrong direction, and with the novels, if they’re really expansive, a lot of times it’s like sitting around a suitcase and trying to get everything in. A Good Marriage is about 100 pages long, »

Extended Version of The Shining Takes an Axe to UK's Film4 FrightFest

18 August 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

When The Shining originally hit theaters back in 1980, it ran two minutes longer than the version we're all familiar with, including a hospital scene that Kubrick cut out a week into the film's theatrical run. Now that scene is being put back into the film for a special screening...

...which is, needless to say, a must-attend for all of you UK fans. Read on!

This year's Film4 FrightFest kicks off in London on August 21st, and we've just learned that the extended cut of The Shining will screen on Sunday night, August 24th. The 146-minute version includes a scene at the end of Wendy Torrance in a hospital bed, being told by Mr. Ullman that Jack's body couldn't be found. The screening will mark the first time the deleted scene has been publicly shown since the movie's original theatrical release.

It's interesting to note that Kubrick's horror masterpiece was heavily »

16 Robin Williams Movies That Defined His Legendary Career

13 August 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The world is just, quite simply, not nearly as funny a place now as it was just a few hours ago, before the tragic death of legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams. For nearly 40 years, the man kept us in stitches in ways only he could, with an impeccable delivery and an unmistakable charm that is often mimicked but never equaled.

As the world mourns this comedy legend, we take a look back at our 16 favorite Robin Williams performances, some in classics that are beloved the world over, and some in overlooked and/or underrated gems that deserve to be noticed.

1Popeye (1980)

While some actors spend years paying their dues in thankless guest starring or supporting roles on film and TV, it didn't take Robin Williams long to find a foothold in Hollywood. His appearance as the alien Mork on one episode of Happy Days was so popular it lead »

Peek into Stanley Kubrick's Editing Room with His Daughter's Photos

11 August 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Over the last couple of years a number of extensive, impressive behind-the-scenes photos from almost all of Stanley Kubrick's films have surfaced online, ending up in complete galleries (see this one for 2001) showing the entirety of production. While we've all poured over these photos, a brand new set of shots are appearing online thanks to tweets from Kubrick's own daughter, Vivian Kubrick. Tweeting with the name @ViKu1111, she's been posting a series of B&W editing room shots, which she says came about because her father gave her a Nikkormat camera for a Christmas present in 1974 and she went photo crazy. Take a look. For those doubting whether this twitter account is real, her shots are one-of-a-kind and they're all the kind you'd only see from a close family member. Her profile says: "Vivian Kubrick is the daughter of film director Stanley Kubrick, she wrote the film score for »

See Saul Bass' Unused Posters for 'The Shining,' with Notes from Stanley Kubrick

8 August 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

  Renowned designer Saul Bass — famous for his bold title sequences in films such as Psycho, The Man with the Golden Arm and North by Northwest — worked with one of the most meticulous directors in Hollywood leading up to one of 1980’s most iconic films. Bass partnered with Stanley Kubrick during the making of The Shining — about a family who ventures to an isolated hotel where strange, supernatural events take over. The designer created the original poster for the horror film, giving it a pointillist edge and strikingly slanted text. But as most Kubrick fans know, the director often put collaborators through their paces, reportedly requesting dozens of takes for a single scene from his actors and more. In Bass’ case, Kubrick didn’t...

Unused Saul Bass Movie Posters for The Shining

7 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here are a few unused posters for Stanley Kubrick's The Shining that were design by legendary poster artist and title designer Saul Bass. What's cool about these is that they also include notes from Kubrick on why they didn't work for the film. It gives us a little insight into how the illustrator worked with the filmmakers to get the right poster design that best represents the movie. The last poster at the end is the one they ended up using. Thanks to Firstshowing for the heads up!

Check Out Unused Poster Design For Tim Burton's 'Batman'

7 August 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Something must be in the water this week, or maybe people are spending the summer clearing out the (digital) closet. This morning we saw rejected poster designs by legendary artist Saul Bass for Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining," and now this afternoon comes another piece of unused art, this time for Tim Burton's "Batman." The one sheet below — which didn't even get to the coloring stage — was created by John Alvin. While he may not have quite the name recognition of Bass, he was hugely respected in his own right, having created memorable posters for "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," "Blazing Sladdes," "Blade Runner," "Jurassic Park," "Aladdin," "Beauty and the Beast," "The Little Mermaid," "The Lion King," "Gremlins" and many more. He's done so much in fact, he's the subject of the upcoming book, "The Art of John Alvin," which hits stores later this month (and where »

Check Out Saul Bass Designed Posters For 'The Shining' Rejected By Stanley Kubrick

7 August 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Next year marks the 35th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of “The Shining” which of course means that writers across the internet are only months away from publishing retrospectives, oral histories and so forth regarding the film that popularized the phrase "redrum." In the meantime, we'll have to be satisfied with learning exactly how the iconic 1980 horror film got its very creepy poster. In addition to his infamously fastidious approach to filmmaking, Kubrick exerted control over the promotional materials of his films as well. For 'The Shining,' Kubrick handpicked Saul Bass, the genius graphic designer behind many of the most famous and greatest title sequences in cinema history, to create a poster along the lines of his previous iconic work. Thanks to Open Culture (via DesignBuddy), we can now see the back-and-forth process (communicated through handwritten notes) between Bass and the ever-demanding Kubrick —he frequently complained »

Funny Video: Meet the Dog Who Loves to Take Showers

In movies, showers can be very scary places. Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Janet Leigh in Psycho. Those horrifying images are filed away in a cabinet in our brains forever. So it's no wonder that dogs - including Turner, from Turner & Hooch - have an aversion to the cells that spew water from a faucet on high. But here's a brave gal who's living it up like Julia Roberts in the tub in Pretty Woman - she's happy as a clam!The creator of the video writes that if you don't close the door to the bathroom, »
