Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

25 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”

Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

1984 Retrospective: Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom

22 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

1984. The year that even the Olympics went to Hollywood is easily one of the greatest years in film history. 1984 is also the year that this writer was born…well, only just (my birthday is 31st December). This of course means that this is the year that I turn the big 3-0. Whilst having a mini wallow/mid-life breakdown I realised that many iconic movies came out during this year, meaning that they too turn 30.  The year saw the likes of The Terminator, Ghostbusters, Splash, The Karate Kid, Police Academy and Gremlins welcomed into the world and our hearts. Having grown up alongside many of these films I decided to perform an in-depth look into the films that shaped 1984 to see how they are holding up three decades later.

We are now well into our retrospective series, having previously looked at the likes of Gremlins, Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid, Footloose and, »

The Art Of John Alvin review

20 August 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One of the greatest poster illustrators ever gets a volume devoted to his work. Here's Ryan's review of the lavish Art Of John Alvin...

In 2008, John Alvin died at the tragically young age of 59, robbing the world of one of its finest poster designers. Although his signatures were often erased from his artwork, Alvin's individual style rang out from every image he produced: his work for movies such as E.T., Blade Runner, Cocoon and Short Circuit displayed a keen eye for colour, space and proportion.

Although technically gifted, it was Alvin's talent for crystalising a film's subject tone in a single, clear image that really set him apart from other illustrators. His best posters often focused on one or two objects suspended against an expanse of sky or stars, such as the alien and child's fingers touching in his poster for E.T., or the silhouette of a boy in Empire Of The Sun. »

Exclusive: Over a Dozen Never-Before-Seen 'Jurassic Park' Posters from Famous Artist John Alvin

7 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

From the '70s to the '00s there were two artists who dominated movie posters. One was Drew Struzan, the other was John Alvin. In the past we've celebrated Struzan thanks to newly published collections of his work and today it's Alvin's turn. On August 26, Titan Books is publishing The Art of John Alvin, a handsome, 140-page collection of not only the posters you already know and love, like E.T., Blade Runner, The Lion King and Gremlins, but a treasure trove's worth of works in progress the world never got to see.

Each of these is very different than the final version, and yet they tend to have one thing in common. They...

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 »

Later this month, his career will be celebrated with the release of The Art of John Alvin, a retrospective of his work that includes commentary from his widow, Andrea Alvin, as well as previously unseen sketches and alternate versions of posters from across his nearly-four decades of

The Dusty VHS Corner: Anthony Hickox, from Sundown to Full Eclipse

3 August 2014 2:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the latest edition of The Dusty VHS Corner, Tom Jolliffe looks at the films of Anthony Hickox

Director Anthony Hickox comes from a strong cinematic lineage. His father, Douglas Hickox was also a director (Zulu Dawn, Theatre of Blood) whilst his mother is critically lauded editor Anne V. Coates (Lawrence of Arabia). A career in the film industry seemed destined, even if his start would require a lot of persistence and a lot of luck.

His debut film Waxwork almost didn’t see the light of day. Hickox met the producer, Staffan Ahrenherg when he crashed his car into the back of Ahrenberg’s. With barely a penny to his name, Hickox managed to persuade Ahrenberg to let him pay for the damage by letting him write a script for him on the cheap. Ahrenberg agreed, and Waxwork was written by Hickox in three days. The script was rejected from almost every studio, »

First Look At Pixels Highlights Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Michelle Monaghan And Peter Dinklage

18 July 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Adam Sandler vehicles are rarely films we look forward to seeing, but the sci-fi action comedy Pixels is primed to change that. Directed by Chris Columbus, the blockbuster centers on a group of old-school gamers who become an unlikely line of defense against invading aliens when extraterrestrials intercept feeds from arcade games, misinterpreting them as a declaration of war and launching attacks on Earth with the same eight-bit characters and strategies.

Faced with a powerful enemy he doesn’t fully understand, the President of the United States (Kevin James) recruits his childhood friends, including a TV mechanic (Sandler), a felon (Peter Dinklage) and a conspiracy theorist (Gad) to form the so-called Arcaders. Teaming them with a weapons specialist (Michelle Monaghan), the President entrusts the future of the world to this motley crew.

Speaking about the film with Entertainment Weekly, which debuted the above image, Columbus, who is still rolling cameras on Pixels, »

Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage battle Pac-Man in 'Pixels'

18 July 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

In the high-concept sci-fi action comedy Pixels, aliens misinterpret satellite feeds of classic arcade video games such as Space Invaders and Centipede as a declaration of war and launch an attack on earth using the same eight-bit characters and strategies.

In the Chris Columbus-directed film, the U.S. president (Kevin James) recruits his childhood friends to help save the country. Back in 1982, his three buddies were arcade prodigies, but cut to the present day: “They’re really three losers,” laughs Columbus. They’ve ended up a TV mechanic (Adam Sandler), a felon (Peter Dinklage), and a conspiracy theorist (Frozen’s Josh Gad). But, »

Love Always: Phoebe Cates

16 July 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Presenting “Love Always,” a recurring feature in which we pay tribute to the women who helped shape our views on pop culture.

This time we pay a 51st birthday tribute to Phoebe Cates. She retired from acting 20 years ago (save for a brief bit in her pal Jennifer Jason Leigh‘s 2001 The Anniversary Party) to raise her family with husband Kevin Kline, but she gave us a couple of iconic moments in the 80′s that will live forever.

Here are seven reasons why I will Love Always Phoebe Cates.

That Scene In Fast Times At Ridgemont High

1982′s Fast Times At Ridgemont High introduced us to Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sean Penn, Forest Whitaker, Eric Stoltz, Anthony Edwards, Judge Reinhold and gave Brian Backer his best film role since The Burning.

It also gave us, without a doubt, the greatest nude scene in film history … that involved breasts. When Phoebe came »

Watch Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd's Rare, Unreleased Sci-fi Comedy from 1984

14 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

  In 1984, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd made a black-and-white, sci-fi comedy that is quirky and convincing as a classic-era production. Saturday Night Live alum Tom Schiller wrote and directed Nothing Lasts Forever — about “an artist [who] fails a test and is required to direct traffic in New York City's Holland Tunnel. He winds up falling in love with a beautiful woman, who takes him to the moon on a Lunar Cruiser.” There are a lot of famous faces in this one, including Gremlins star Zach Galligan in the lead role. The oft-missed John Belushi was set to make an appearance, even, but he died seven weeks before the film started shooting. Movie-music god Howard Shore provided the soundtrack. So why the heck haven’t we seen this thing until...

15 Fun Facts About E.T.: The Extra-terrestrial

14 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Steven Spielberg's E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial was one of the very first movies that I ever saw in theaters. It was a magical movie going experience that I'll never forget. It has been 32 years since this movie was released, and there's so much about it that I didn't know until I put together this list of trivia for you to browse through. Here are 15 fun facts about E.T., some of which you might not know about.

Steven Spielberg shot most of the film from the eye-level of a child to further connect with Elliot and E.T. With the exception of Elliot's mom, no adults' faces are shown until the last half of the film.Most of the full-body puppetry was performed by a 2' 10 tall stuntman, but the scenes in the kitchen were done using a 10-year old boy who was born without legs but was an expert on walking on his hands. »
