Our host for tonight is Matthew McConaughey, who said “All right, all right, all right” in his first movie and now we’ll never let him forget it. You may know McConaughey as the young Texan stoner from Dazed and Confused, as the constantly shirtless heartthrob from various romantic comedies, as a very skinny and very serious actor pushing for an Egot any way he knows how, or as that guy who tried to sell you a Lincoln once in a fever dream (Wait, what? That Was Actually A Commercial I Watched In Real Life?). Cold Open: The gang at Fox and Friends interviews Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Ben Carson, and discusses the Syrian refugee situation. Ugh. This was not a great start to the night. Normally I consider Fox and Friends a decent opener to the show-- just a utilitarian way to recap the news with the kind of recurring »

Tie-in video games are nothing new in the moviemaking or televisual world. Through these spin-off products, we can play out adventures featuring our favourite characters without having to leave the house.
Most of the time, though, said characters don’t sound quite right. For financial reasons, you’ll often see a different voice cast step in to replace the overly expensive stars from the original film or TV version. Admittedly, these stand-ins do a very good job from time to time. But you can always tell the difference.
Sometimes, though, providing a rare treat for fans, actors can be convinced – by money, passion or a good script - to reprise their iconic film or TV characters once more for a video game adventure. Here are 32 games that featured instances of this incredibly fun phenomenon… »
It’s holiday gift book time, and our list of must-reads includes weighty coffee table books on two iconic film franchises, some video store nostalgia, the mysteries of David Lynch, a bit of pre-Star Wars: The Force Awakens reading, and the brilliance of Terry Gilliam. Check out the recommendations below and see more here.
Even as a fan of the Back to the Future trilogy, I was a bit taken aback by the hype surrounding October 21, 2015, a.k.a., the date Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrived in the Hill Valley of the future in Back to the Future II. It is only fitting, then, that part of the hype includes the wildly entertaining Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History. Featuring the participation of, well, everyone involved, from »

[[tmz:video id="0_vv618sf1"]] Austin Mahone was all braggadocio at Lax Tuesday, telling our photog he's the champ when it comes to unstrapping his conquests. Austin's only 19, but he gives himself a 10 and explains his tried-and-true techniques.

We're continuing to dig deep into the archive of old movie promo shots and behind the scenes imagery (you'll find links to other examples down at the bottom there), and this time, we've uncovered some pictures from the making of Paul Verhoeven's all-time classic, RoboCop.
The 1987 movie was a technical test and a half for Verhoeven and his team, and whilst we don't have an abundance of imagery from the film, we think you might like what we've found. It's six shots, one or two of which showcase the level of practical effects work on the movie.
As ever, keep letting us know if you want to see more features of this ilk. In the meantime, click on the gallery widget to load up the pictures. »
"The documentary film Back in Time is, at its heart, a look at the very real impact the Back to the Future movies have had on our culture. What was once a little idea that spawned a tightly-focused documentary has grown into something truly amazing over two years of filming. Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the vastness of the trilogy’s fandom. In addition to the footage and interviews revolving around the time machine itself, the crew found that simply by delving into the impact of the trilogy an epic journey began to unfold before them. The crew captured countless hours of footage during filming. From Steven Spielberg to Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, to the Sheas and Hollers, and from James Tolkan »

Maria Santiago and her son, Shawn, eagerly wait for the rest of their family by the exit of Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, an attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood.
“I hadn’t been to California in so long,” she says, explaining that she had just moved from Nevada and was visiting the park for the first time in about 38 years. “I think it’s amazing and I wanted to bring my kids over.”
Shawn jumps in, “All I can say is, it’s a really interesting park.”
The theme park today looks very different from Santiago’s previous visit. Despicable Me Minion Mayhem joins such “veteran” attractions as Shrek 4-d, and WaterWorld. The park has expanded rapidly in the past five years as part of a plan that president and COO of Universal Studios Hollywood, Larry Kurzweil, calls an “epic transformation.”
That transformation will come to fruition when the park opens »

This isn’t the Doctor’s first visit to a space station; the first on-screen trip came in 1968’s The Wheel In Space, when the second Doctor battled Cybermen aboard Space Station W3. Other memorable stations have included Nerva Beacon, from fourth Doctor tales The »
I have no recollection of the first film I saw in theatres. When I was two months old, my father passed over reruns of I Love Lucy in the middle of the night, only to lull me to sleep to Platoon. This might explain why heavy metal makes me drowsy now. According to my parents, the first movie they took me to see in theatres was Home Alone. I was two years old, and cried mercilessly every time Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern were on screen. At the age of seven, my older brother, Derek, let me watch Natural Born Killers. He was eleven, and we were borrowing our Snow Bird grandparents’ Pay Per View box. Our mother wasn’t pleased when she finally found out about this earlier this year.
Whether by my own curiosity, naiveté, or fortitude (or any combination thereof), I managed to watch some illicit stuff at a very young age. »

Perhaps the most subjective genre in cinema, the same comedy can cause one viewer to have tears of laughter and another to not crack a smile. So, while knowing there can be no definitive list of the finest in the genre, the Writers Guild of America attempted to narrow down the 101 funniest screenplays. Noting the distinction from the best in the genre, these 101 films should simply produce the most laughs.
Topping the list is Woody Allen‘s Best Picture-winning Annie Hall, a choice difficult to argue with. Rounding out the top five were Some Like it Hot, Groundhog Day, Airplane! and Tootsie, while films from the Coens, Stanley Kubrick, Wes Anderson, and Edgar Wright were also mentioned. There are also some genuine head-scratching inclusions, including The Hangover at 30, and, as much as I enjoy the film, Bridesmaids nearly making the top 15, but overall, if one is looking to brighten their mood, »

While fans were clamoring to get their hands on Pepsi Perfect and witnessing history being made with the first pair of power-lace shoes from Nike, the more hardcore Back to the Future fans were in California at the five-day 30th anniversary celebration We’re Going Back.

“Annie Hall” has been named the funniest screenplay in voting by the members of the Writers Guild of America.
The script by Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman topped “Some Like it Hot,” “Groundhog Day,” “Airplane!” and “Tootsie,” which make up the rest of the top five. “Young Frankenstein,” “Dr. Strangelove,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “National Lampoon’s Animal House” rounded out the top 10.
The awards for the 101 funniest screenplays were announced at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood at the conclusion of two hours of panel discussions and clips, hosted by Rob Reiner. He noted that his “This Is Spinal Tap” script had finished at the No. 11 spot — a coincidence that recalled the “go to 11” amplifier joke in the film.

Terminator Genisys Honest Trailer
This week, Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers crew breaks down the summer flop Terminator Genisys, which gleefully skewers how this sequel "ruins" the only good movies in the franchise, recycles numerous lines of dialogue and much more. Despite its box office failure domestically, we reported last month »
"I like using references when, hopefully, the fact that I'm using it is what's funny, not the reference itself," John Mulaney told Vulture in an interview earlier this week. And you can see him put that philosophy to the test in his new hour special, The Comeback Kid, which hits Netflix on Friday. The best example is a bit about Back to the Future, a movie that maybe makes no sense. No, it's not crazy to believe in time travel; it's crazy to believe that a kid could be friends with some old scientist and everyone would be chill about it. »

Continuing the initial issue’s anthology approach to the Back to the Future mythos, this issue features a pair of tales set in two different times: The first chronicles the story behind the destruction of Doc’s family home (hinted at in the first film), while the second depicts a specific moment in Marty and Doc’s friendship, prior to Marty’s initial trip back in time. Both attempt different things and mostly succeed in their endeavors.
The first story, by Bob Gale & John Barber, is set in 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis (following another framing device set in the Old West, setting up the story as one told by Doc to his young sons; something we also »

We've uncovered a bunch of rare-ish shots from behind the scenes of 1984's Ghostbusters...
We've been back digging through the archives of press shots and rarely seen stills, and this time, we've come up with a bunch of pictures from behind the scenes of the first Ghostbusters film, from back in 1984.
The movie, of course, starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts, with Ivan Reitman directing. And whilst we think you may have seen some of these shots before, there were certainly some that we hadn't seen ourselves, and others we'd not cast our peepers on for a long, long time.
As always, let us know if you want us to keep doing posts of this ilk. For now though, to see the images, just click on the gallery above...
