Great Job, Internet!: Back To The Future’s Tom Wilson turns himself into pop art

24 August 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Philadephia-born actor Tom Wilson grew up surrounded by pop art, a movement spearheaded by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein that drew on images from mass media and advertising and used bold, bright colors to catch people’s attention. After attending the American Academy Of Dramatic Arts in New York City, Wilson found himself part of the blockbuster Back To The Future franchise, embodying the role of bully Biff Tannen at various ages as well as such Biff-derived characters as Griff Tannen and Buford Tannen. Because of Future’s enduring success, Wilson saw his own image, his own face, being replicated in a thousand different ways for decades. He had become a commodity, a piece of merchandise. In other words, Wilson was living pop art, and this inspired him to create pop art paintings of his own. It seems like a classic case of “if you can’t beat ’em, join »

Watch ‘Timeless’ give amusing shout-outs to ‘Nurse Jackie’ and Dr. Dre

22 August 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back to the Future had some fun with Marty’s frequent exclamation, “This is heavy!” Earlier this year, 11.22.63 got some laughs from James Franco’s character telling a veteran in 1960 that, yes, he served “in the Medical Corps, M*A*S*H 4077.” Now Timeless is supplying the comedy with its own anachronistic language and references as the new time travel series transports its heroes from 2016 to 1937. If you have your countdown set for Timeless’ premiere on October 3, here’s another peek at the new series to tide you over until then. HitFix has an exclusive “first look” featurette that not only includes the starring cast chatting about their characters but also reveals another amusing moment from the pilot when Abigail Spencer’s character saves her ragtag team’s cover with some quick thinking and a shout-out to a certain rapper. Check out the featurette below: Who to turn to in dire situations whilst time traveling? »

The making-of documentary, which premiered on Biography Channel in 2010, tells “the story of a how a group of replacement players came together to turn the horror genre on its ear by transforming a mass-market thriller into a film classic for the ages.” That “replacement players” designation comes from the fact that none of the key players were originally intended »

21 Reasons We Applaud Outlander Season 2

19 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Is there anything Outlander Season 2 didn't have?

From stunning fashions to the most brutal scenes of vengeance, the Starz series ran the gamut of visual elegance and emotional turmoil.

We're taking time to revisit some of the most memorable moments from the Scottish Highlands and the streets of Paris.

Worry not, if you're missing the beautiful and sassy romantic pairing of Jamie and Claire, you can sign up for a Free Amazon Prime Trial and catch up on Outlander now...

1. Back to the Future The premiere of Outlander was a surprise. Even more of one if you read the books, apparently, because it didn't start at the appropriate place in the future. The season itself was bookended in the future, and I think you either loved it or hated it. I love how it was done. 2. Frank's Reaction Getting to know Frank and what he thought about Claire being back, »

Cool Stuff: Marq Spusta’s ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Print Moves Pretty Fast

19 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This past summer marked the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and there were various screenings of the film here and there to celebrate the milestone, but otherwise it’s been a pretty quiet celebration. It’s certainly nowhere near as buzzworthy as the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future last year or Ghostbusters the […]

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: 5 Other Franchises We’d Love to See on Stage

18 August 2016 5:36 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If early reviews are anything to go by, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a resoundingly successful transition from page to stage. The new script, set 19 years after the final book in the original Harry Potter saga, brings back the magic of the series like never before.

Indeed, short of taking the excellent Harry Potter Tour (which actually lets you walk around inside the world of Pottermania), The Cursed Child is perhaps the most immersive Potter experience possible. Given the enormous success of the franchise prior to its release, it’s no surprise, then, that the play is enjoying such positive reviews early on.

Why can’t the same treatment be given to other favourites of fiction? Whether they be novels, movies or TV series, there are a whole host of other franchises which would flourish on the stage – here are five suggestions for any budding playwrights out there. »

‘Fringe’ predicted ‘Batman v Superman.’ Will it be right about ‘Indiana Jones’?

17 August 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Spoilers for Fringe ahead. Mindy Kaling predicted the female cast-led Ghostbusters. Did Fringe predict another 2016 blockbuster (or blockbuster wannabe)? Fringe fanatics are well aware of what Over There’s Back to the Future looked like (a lot less Michael J. Fox and a lot more Eric Stoltz and probably a lot less iconic). A movie theater marquee advertising that alternate universe version of Back to the Future prominently filled the frame of a shot in mid-season 2 episode “Peter,” set in 1985. But some Fringe fans may not have noticed or remembered the marquee that appeared in the season 2 finale. Turns out a re-watch of that game-changer finale, “Over There: Part 2,” which aired in 2010, reveals a marquee tucked in the corner of a shot that’ll get a chuckle out of anyone in 2016 Over Here. Those airship-flying bastards. They actually got a decent DC superhero-vs.-superhero movie (or two!). I assume. »

Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge isn't the only World War II-set film that's arriving in theaters this November -- Back to the Future and Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis has one too... and it's got Brad Pitt in it. The first teaser trailer for Allied has arrived online, revealing what looks more like a spy thriller than a war picture as it tracks the story of a spy assassin (Pitt) who falls for a French spy (Marion Cotillard) while on an assignment to take out a German official. Their love for one another is tested as the war threatens to tear them apart at any moment. Check it out.   This is the second film in two years for Robert Zemeckis (his The Walk hit theaters in October of last year), which seems like a lot but something we've seen from...
