This is one way to live la vida loca: Ricky Martin channels Risky Business on the latest Lip Sync Battle, where the singer slides onto the stage to perform Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” wearing nothing but socks, briefs, and a button-down — almost exactly what Tom Cruise wore when he danced to the same song in the 1983 comedy.
See Martin in action above, and watch the full episode when it airs Thursday at 10 p. »

[Happy Monday, readers! With the 2017 Sundance Film Festival beginning later this week, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the great midnight movies that have come out of the fest over the years. Be sure to check back each day this week for more Midnight Memories from Daily Dead!]
The Sundance Film Festival has hosted the premieres of many a great genre offering; from Lucky McKee’s May in 2002 to Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead in 2014, the festival spotlights genre work by turns impactful, thoughtful, or just delightful. And many of the films’ backstories are often as inspired as the work itself. Case in point: Jason Eisener’s Hobo with a Shotgun, which premiered January 21st, 2011 at Sundance, and is still as fun to watch as its journey to the screen is fascinating.
