'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Janel Parrish & Bethany Mota Earn Perfect 10s; Randy Couture Eliminated

29 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars returned Monday with Movie Night, in which actor Kevin Hart took over Len Goodman’s seat on the judges’ panel. Not only were the celebrities dancing movie-themed dances, but they were on high alert about whether or not they would be the second one going home from last Monday's routines.

Dancing with the Stars Recap

After finding out that they were one of the pairs in jeopardy, Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff took on the season’s first Paso Doble. Going with a Rocky theme, Karina choreographed an intense routine. Unfortunately, Randy’s biggest cheers came when he merely struck a pose – not when he was clumsily attempting to execute the dance moves. Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli found little to like about the performance. Scores: 7+7+6+6=26

Alfonso Riberio, eager to prove he can master ballroom dancing, did a quickstep, which was oddly given an Austin Powers theme. »

Randy Couture Was Sent Home on Dancing with the Stars

29 September 2014 7:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even on a night that saw two perfect scores on Dancing with the Stars, someone still had to leave the ballroom for good. Sadly, Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff began the night knowing they were in jeopardy. Based on scores from viewers and the judges last week, the duo became the third couple to leave the dance floor. "It's been a great experience, putting myself out there and trying something new," said Couture.

26 September 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Outlander” will air its midseason finale on Sept. 27, and the action-packed hour should certainly leave viewers craving more until the drama returns for the final eight episodes of season one next April.

Ahead of episode eight, titled “Both Sides Now,” Variety spoke to executive producer Ron Moore and star Tobias Menzies (who plays Frank Randall and his bloodthirsty ancestor, “Black Jack” Randall) about the season so far and what to expect in this week’s installment. Read on for more, and come back to Variety on Saturday after the episode airs for a postmortem with the duo.

Back to the Future

Menzies revealed that “this is one of the episodes that departs from the book most because [we] go back and see what has been happening with Frank in these intervening months since Claire (Caitriona Balfe) disappeared, and obviously, that is not in the book. I think one of the things »

Interview: Directors of ‘The Boxtrolls’ on Their Animated Life

25 September 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – How do you interpret an odd British storybook called “Here Be Monsters!” into a mainstream animated film? By taking the main characters – called ‘The Boxtrolls’ – and putting them up front. Animation veterans and co-directors Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi got the assignment, and deliver the goods.

Both creators have been around the animation block, but this is Annable’s first major animation directorial effort. He cut his teeth as a comic book artist and video game director, and was a story artist on the recent “ParaNorman.” Stacchi was previously a co-director on “Open Season” (2006), and started his animation career as a story artist on the classic “Antz” (1998). He also worked on visual effects for the classics “Back to the Future” (1985), “Ghost” (1990) and “Hook” (1991). The animation of ‘The Boxtrolls’ was produced by Laika Entertainment, who also produced the stop motion films “Coraline’” and the aforementioned “ParaNorman.”

'Back to the Future' Video: How They Shot the Opening Scene

25 September 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The opening sequence of Back to The Future works perfectly in setting up Christopher Lloyd's Doc Brown and the movie itself. Director Robert Zemeckis captured the pan through Doc's inventions, which allowed for Brown to have an easy morning, in one single take. But it took a lot of coordinating to pull off such an amazing feat.

In a new interview, SFX supervisor Kevin Pike reveals how this scene was created for the classic sci-fi comedy, which took quite a few crew members. Is Robert Zemeckis a perfectionist? Watch the video and decide for yourself:

This is the first in a series of behind-the-scenes Back to The Future shorts from Jamie Benning which will be available on Vimeo. Stay tuned as more video from this seminal 80s classic is revealed in the coming weeks.

Back to The Future was released July 3rd, 1985 and stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, »

This Is How Back To The Future's Incredible Opening Scene Was Filmed

25 September 2014 3:35 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The opening shot of Back To The Future really tells you absolutely everything you need to know about Doc Brown. The incredible number of clocks reflect both his kookiness and fascination with time; his automatic dog food opener shows us both the love for his dog, Einstein, and his love for inventing; and both the malfunctioning toaster and missing coffee pot immediately tell us that he's kind of a disorganized dude. This was all captured in one glorious take by director Robert Zemeckis, but you wouldn't believe the amount of work and coordination that it all took to happen. The video you see above comes from Vimeo user Jamie Benning, who has launched the first installment of a video series that is based around a recent interview he did with Back To The Future's special effects supervisor Kevin Pike. In the short first chapter, the behind-the-scenes magician explains some »

Votd: Explore the Intricate ‘Back to the Future’ Opening Shot

25 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

A truly great shot is one you’ll never notice. It tells a story with no apparent effort, putting the audience right in the space needed to get ideas across with no interference between lens and eye. Filmmakers can take obvious pride in their attention-getting compositions. But I’d wager the shots for which many directors, cinematographers […]

Back To The Future — Opening Scene Documentary by Jamie Benning

25 September 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Jamie Benning has been creating what he calls "Filmumentaries" which are "making of" documentaries about films. Thanks to First Showing, we have the newest one about the opening scene in Back To The Future. In it, he interviews special effects supervisor Kevin Pike. The iconic long take that opens the film is broken down, and some fun facts are shared. This is only part one of a larger project. If it follows the format of Benning's previous documentaries the whole thing should be a couple hours long.

Make sure to checkout Benning's other documentaries about the Star Wars trilogy, Jaws, and Raiders of The Lost Ark.

Inside Jaws and Raiding the Lost Ark filmmaker Jamie Benning is back, and this time he’s focusing his camera on another beloved movie: Robert ZemeckisBack to the Future. The documentarian recently sat down with special effects supervisor Kevin Pike to talk about the famous film, and what follows is a fascinating bit of audio commentary that takes us behind the scenes of the film’s opening moments. Bttf - The Opening Scene - Kevin Pike Interview - Part 1 @Jamieswb from Jamie Benning on Vimeo.   For whatever reason, the lengthy single-take shot that opens Back to the Future often gets forgotten when people write about extended takes.

'The Goldbergs' season 2 premiere react: Same love, new mixtape

24 September 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Some comedies attempt to launch their second season with some grandiose celebrity cameo or high-concept hook, but that’s not the Mo of The Goldbergs, which returned for a sophomore cycle in its cushy new Wednesday time slot. To be completely fair, EW’s fall TV preview suggests that the show will still have its grabby zeitgeisty episodes this season, and on the celebrity cameo front, David Spade does guest star in a throwaway role in the premiere, but that’s far from the reason why Wednesday’s premiere marked a triumphant return for the ’80s-set sitcom.

How Did Robert Zemeckis Film the Opening of 'Back to the Future'?

24 September 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's no doubt that Back to the Future is one of the classics. The film is highly regarded as one of the best time travel movies ever made, but even outside of the realm of sci-fi, it's simply one of the best motion pictures in history. And while over the years there's been a lot of focus on the DeLorean time machine or even the elements that come into play Back to the Future II like hoverboards and whatnot, it's time to just hunker down and look at the hard work and talented filmmaking that went into the film. One of the sequences that goes overlooked is the long-take, opening sequence of the first film with all the clocks. It seems simple, but it turns out that making that whole sequence happen was anything but that. Watch now!
