Watch: Trailer For 'Left Behind,' Which Is Basically The Nicolas Cage Version Of 'The Leftovers'

5 August 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the HBO series "The Leftovers," 2% of the world's population vanishes one day, leaving those left behind to ponder what happened. Is the rapture upon us? Is this a supernatural event? An elaborate game of hide and go seek? In the forthcoming feature "Left Behind," the same scenario goes down, except for one key difference: Nicolas Cage. Yep, the actor leads "Left Behind," based on the apocalyptic novel beloved of evangelical Christians like Kirk Cameron, who starred in a much lower budget, lower profile 2003 rendition. This version? More money, more Cage, and less "Growing Pains" dude. The below trailer nonetheless suggests a badly acted disaster movie more than it does a thoughtful HBO program. Think of the opening of the pilot episode of Damon Lindelof's show "Lost" stretched to blockbuster proportions, with those "left behind" dealing with the immediate consequences of millions of humans suddenly vanished »

Graphic Review: Damian: Son of Batman Deluxe Edition

4 August 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

I was rather upset at the news that DC would be killing off Damian Wayne. I really didn’t see why they should off the character just when he was hitting his prime. Everybody knows that nobody stays dead in comic books so it was just a matter of time before he popped up again somehow. That somehow was Andy Kubert’s “What If?”-styled limited series Damian: Son of Batman

The graphic novel edition simply entitled Damian: Son of Batman Deluxe Edition collects the four issue series combined with Batman #666 and #700. The book explores the idea of Damian Wayne surviving his run-in with Leviathan. He’s now living with the pain and grief that his father was taken from him. He dons a personalized Batman costume and hunts down criminals in Gotham City every night with one goal on his mind. He doesn’t get the police or the »

The Almost Man | Review

30 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Growing Pains: Lund’s Debut a Gem of Behavioral Regression

The long hard road to growing up and accepting responsibility takes the center stage in Martin Lund’s simply and astutely observed tale about one thirty five year-old man’s coming of age episode, The Almost Man. While certainly not unfamiliar in scope, Lund delivers a charmingly realistic portrait of the dogged, insistent clamp many of us try to retain on those carefree days of young adulthood with a film unhampered by requisite hypersexualization and stylized vulgar antics to meet the entertainment quota of the lowest common denominator.

Goofy, playful, and seemingly never serious, Henrik (Henrik Rafelson) currently enjoys a carefree life alongside his live-in girlfriend, Tone (Janne Heltberg Haarseth). They have just moved into a new apartment meant to foster the next, more adult chapter of their life together, and Henrik has landed a new marketing position. While everything seems peachy, »

Paula Patton and Robin Thicke’s Marriage Is Over, Shared Mansion Up for Sale

24 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It looks like it may be truly over for Robin Thicke and his estranged wife Paula Patton. Sources from inside the singer’s camp tell TMZ that the marriage is done.

The tip comes on the heels of the news that Thicke is selling the house the two share – or rather don’t. Since the two separated in February, the singer has been focused on recording his new album, Paula, and going on the road in a very sap-heavy promotional tour. (The album tanked upon release, becoming one of the worst flops of all time.) Meanwhile, Patton has been on set filming the upcoming film adaptation of the Warcraft video game series.

According to Variety, the couple’s three-bedroom estate is being listed for $2.985 million. The value is over double the amount the singer’s father Alan Thicke (Growing Pains) paid in 1990.

The couple first separated earlier this year following »

July 8th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Bloody Birthday, Lake Placid, The Raid 2

7 July 2014 5:44 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week’s Blu-ray and DVD releases are an eclectic bunch, to say the least. Not only is Steve Miner’s criminally overlooked horror/comedy creature feature Lake Placid swimming its way onto Blu-ray, but Severin Films is also releasing a trio of controversial cult classics- Bloody Moon, The Baby and Bloody Birthday-all  in high definition for the first time ever.

The Time Machine is also getting a Blu-ray release this week, along with Gareth Evans’ stunning action masterpiece The Raid 2 and a handful of indie horror films, including the wickedly entertaining horror musical Stage Fright starring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf. Overall, it’s a good week to be a genre fan with oddball tastes because there’s a whole lot of wonderfully weird stuff arriving this Tuesday.

Spotlight Titles:

The Baby (Severin Films, Blu-ray)

An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, »

Ensemble TV Actors Shine in Smaller Roles

10 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Let’s be honest: While it’s great to win an Emmy — any Emmy — almost every actor would prefer a leading role to a supporting one.

That said, some of today’s top movie stars got their start in a supporting TV role. Woody Harrelson first came to fame playing the dim but sweet Woody on “Cheers,” a role for which he was nominated for six Emmys and won once (Harrelson also was nominated in 2012 for playing Steve Schmidt in HBO’s “Game Change”). Two-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper was once Sydney Bristow’s (Jennifer Garner) best friend on J.J. Abrams’ “Alias.” And even Leonardo DiCaprio got his start playing foster child Luke Brower on “Growing Pains.”

So it’s not all bad playing second fiddle. After all, Lupita Nyong’o made quite a splash as the stylish newcomer and ultimately Oscar’s supporting actress.

Still, it can be hard »

Alan Thicke Reunites with Growing Pains Cast and John Stamos (Video)

var brightcovevideoid = '3605379512001'; Fans of easy-to-make puns and '80s television: We've got a treat for you. For the mid-season finale of Alan Thicke's reality show, Unusually Thicke, Thicke hosts a Growing Pains reunion at a barbecue and hangs out with John Stamos. If that sentence didn't send your nostalgia-o-meter into the red, nothing will. At one point, Stamos has a conversation with Thicke about rebooting Growing Pains, with him playing Mike Seaver. And adding zombies. Or vampires. Or gay people. (It's important to note that, earlier this year, Thicke referred to his show as "reality-ish," so maybe »

Nic Cage Will Save Us From the End in First Left Behind Trailer

30 May 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Vic Armstrong’s “Left Behind” is the first of what the producers no doubt hope will be a new series. It’s actually a reboot of a series from a decade or so ago, starring former “Growing Pains’” Kirk Cameron. There was, I think, two films in that franchise. I recall liking both films for what they were — moderately budgeted end-of-the-world movies. I’m a sucker for end-of-the-world movies. Not so much for all the God talk. I could do without that, but then again, I’m going to Hell, so what else is new. Flash-forward to 2014, and the same people behind the “Left Behind” movies are back and revisiting the apocalypse, this time with Nicolas Cage as their star. (Chad Michael Murray steps in for Cameron as the improbably named Buck Williams.) Getting Cage for a movie isn’t nearly as impressive as you would think, given that Cage does about 50 movies a year. »

Watch Nicolas Cage in the Left Behind Trailer

30 May 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The first trailer for the Left Behind reboot is finally here. For those who don't know what Left Behind is (you're going to Hell), it's a very popular 16-part series of Christian novels about the Rapture. The first in the series was made into a straight-to-dvd movie in 2000 starring Growing PainsKirk Cameron. Now the production value has been increased (as it couldn't have been decreased), and freaking Nicolas Cage is the star. The trailer has a lot more God talk than your standard action-movie trailer but is actually kind of coy about it all. Maybe they're hoping they'll be able to convert the general action-movie audience. You know, just like how there are now all those churches dedicated to Godzilla. »

Those Were The Days (of TV theme songs)

25 May 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like it or not, the television landscape has changed. Reality TV and its “stars” seem to be here to stay, which is bad news for nostalgia freaks like me, who’d rather watch repeats of old shows than spend half an hour with a real housewife, a top chef, or a Boo Boo of any kind. While the number of reality shows are on the increase, an integral part of TV viewing has quietly been disappearing; that simple melody that you waited to hear with anticipation once a week coming from your living room, aka a theme song.

If you’re under a certain age (like say, 25 or younger), you might not get my gripe. I can’t really blame you; most likely you’ve grown up with slim pickings as far as theme songs go, and by now watch everything online anyway, commercial and theme song free. But shocker: »

Early Roles for the Currently Famous

16 May 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There are plenty of lists waxing nostalgic about revisionist history online. Some even border on irritating, know-it-all anecdotes to drop on people at parties. “Speaking of Denzel Washington,” the partygoer will undoubtedly interject during the ongoing debate about Malcolm X’s role as a historical figure, “did you know he was in Death Wish?”

For such situations, I offer the following, less reported early roles with which to retort. Because for every Leonardo DiCaprio in Growing Pains, there’s one of these:

Jim Caviezel firebombed Alcatraz – The Rock

It’s easy to miss the Person of Interest star/Jesus as the fighter pilot who drops a load of bombs on Alcatraz, blowing Nicolas Cage out of the water (something we’ve secretly all wanted to do). That may have to do with the pilot oxygen mask covering his face during most of his screentime.
