Emilio Estevez turns the big 5-0 today! Remember when he was Andrew Clark, the high school jock in "The Breakfast Club"?The actor has had an extremely successful career since his days in the '80s running with Hollywood's "Brat Pack" alongside stars like Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy and Anthony Michael Hall. Estevez quickly rose to fame in the '80s, landing leading roles in flicks like "The Outsiders," "St. Elmo's Fire" and "Young Guns." But, Emilio probably became the most well-known in the early '90s starring as Gordon Bombay in the "Mighty Ducks" flicks. Nevertheless, the actor has continued to steal the small and big screen -- recently appearing on "Two and Half Men," "The Way" and "Abominable Christmas." Has the rest of the "Brat Pack" fared as well? Click "Launch Gallery" above to see your favorite '80s gang then & now! »

In 1983, Francis Ford Coppola had plenty of greatness under his belt from The Godfather, The Conversation, The Godfather: Part II and Apocalypse Now, but some may say 1982's One from the Heart was the beginning of the end... at least the end of the Coppola we came to know in the '70s. Sure, The Godfather: Part III saw seven Oscar nominations, but ask anyone and they're sure to point it out as the weakest of the trilogy by a mile. Films such as Peggy Sue Got Married, Dracula and even The Rainmaker aren't half-bad and I'll happily admit to loving 90% of Tetro, but the Coppola star doesn't shine as it once did. Such a situation can result in films being forgotten, overlooked and never revisited again. The lack of appreciation for the last 30 years of Coppola's directorial career has allowed me to easily avoid -- wrongly or not -- »

This is the comic book event that either propelled DC Comics towards the New 52 paradigm or sent the company spinning off the rails, alienating the very core audience they sought to retain. Now it is being adapted into animated form from Warner Home Entertainment in July. Some speculate this direct-to-video movie will transition the animated heroes towards New 52 incarnations but that has not been confirmed. Here’s the release: Burbank, CA (April 17, 2013) – The world is turned upside down as one of earth’s greatest super heroes – Flash – wakes up devoid of his super powers in the all-new Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox – the next entry in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Original Animated Movies.

When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event's temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and Aquaman's Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman »
A trio of unnamed casting directors recently unloaded a gold mine of tapes featuring the famous film stars we love today. There are 54 auditions and 12 lots of videos in the collection that spans 30 years, and they all hit the auction block next month. Today's Matt Lauer reviewed some of the footage, which we feature in the below video. Although the reels are grainy and the auditions are somewhat rough, it's great to see these big-screen stars in their younger years giving it their all. Not everyone got the parts they tried out for — like 15-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio in a 1990 audition for a TV series based on Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders. He ended up getting a bit part instead. Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr., and Keanu Reeves all tried out for Ron...

It's been a month since the last conversation in the RopeofSilicon Movie Club and I told you I wasn't going to abandon the feature even though participation wasn't at the level I hoped it would reach. Well, I'm sticking to my word as the next title will be Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders starring Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane and Tom Waits. The discussion will begin on April 24. Yeah, I did another Coppola movie in The Conversation in January, but I've had this one in my queue for a long time and it seemed like a film perfect to get the conversation going considering not only the material, but when it was released and the number of actors involved that are now household names. The film is based on the S.E. Hinton novel (amazon asin="014240733X" text »

"Nothing gold can stay," Ponyboy Curtis (C. Thomas Howell) memorably tells Johnny Cade (Ralph Macchio) in "The Outsiders," a line from a Robert Frost poem about how nothing good ever lasts. But 30 years after its release, the film has endured and become a touchstone coming-of-age movie that's quoted and rediscovered by new generations of teens. On March 25, 1983, the 1960s teen drama hit the big screen featuring a cast jam-packed with future stars, including Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, and Diane Lane. The film was based on the best-selling S.E. Hinton novel about the rivalry between the James Dean wannabe "Greasers" and the rich "Socs" (short for "Socials"). It helped launch several careers, including that of Brat Packers Rob Lowe and Emilio Estevez. Francis Ford Coppola directed; he also went on to helm the more unconventional "Rumble Fish," based on another Hinton novel. While we may not need to tell »

As we know from the hugely successful "Veronica Mars" Kickstarter that reached its goal in record time on March 13, fans have a definite sway in getting movies made. Check out this fascinating correspondence from 1980 between elementary school librarian Jo Ellen Misakian and Hollywood producer Fred Roos, which chronicles Misakian asking Francis Ford Coppola to adapt her school's favorite book, "The Outsiders," into a movie, and then Roos responding with "cautious optimism." The letter below is the first response from Roos, in which he thanks Misakian for her students' petition, and mentions that "the next step is for myself and other members of our company to read the book." He also misspells her name, an error that is fixed in later letters. "The Outsiders" of course ultimately went into production and was released in 1983. It stars, among others, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe and Ralph Macchio. »

Sometimes our collaborators come from unexpected places — as was the case for Francis Ford Coppola and his look at troubled teens in Oklahoma. The Outsiders spawned the careers of many of its cast members, including C. Thomas Howell as Ponyboy — the literary loner who quotes Robert Frost poems, reads Gone with the Wind, and is one of the only greasers of the group that has a shot at getting out of his cruddy town and making something of his life. The emotional story resonates with audiences, and you needn't be a 1960s gang member to know what its like to struggle with the frightening and confusing space of adulthood, to feel judged unfairly, or to experience heartbreaking tragedy. We've all been there on varying levels. Website Letters of...

When "The Outsiders" came out in theaters in 1983, Diane Lane, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise and Patrick Swayze were far from household names.A lot can change in 30 years!In celebration of Rob's 49th birthday today, we're taking a look back at how the then-unknown cast became huge stars ... and checking in on how most of them look today.Stars like Lane and Cruise went on to score Oscar nominations ...
