Taylor Swift & Molly Ringwald Become BFFs During the 2015 Billboard Music Awards (And We're Jealous!)

17 May 2015 7:43 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

In a word? Goals. Molly Ringwald got up on stage to pay tribute to the 30th anniversary of The Breakfast Club when she confessed the No. 1 thing that we all can relate to: she wants to be Taylor Swift's Bff. The actress gushed that she wants to "join the club" and let's just say, after seeing T.Swift's star-studded "Bad Blood" music video, we want to join too! And it looks like Ringwald's dreams came true—within a matter of seconds, no less—when the two ladies were spotted dancing along to Simple Minds' "Don't You (Forget About Me)" in the front row at the MGM Grand's Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Not only were Ringwald and Swift seen »

Molly Ringwald and Simple Minds Celebrate The Breakfast Club's 30th Anniversary at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards!

17 May 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You guys, can you believe that it has been 30 years since The Breakfast Club hit theaters? Nope, neither can we. The cult classic's star Molly Ringwald took to the stage at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards tonight to honor the film's anniversary along with a very, very special performance. That's right, Simple Minds performed the massive hit "Don't You (Forget About Me)" and the entire star-studded audience rose to their feet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The Scottish band's hit single was made famous by the 1985 John Hughes-directed movie which starred Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, and Paul Gleason—just to name a »

14 May 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The folks at Latino-Review.com are reporting Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game) has been cast as the new Spider-Man for Sony Pictures and will have his first appearance as the webslinger in next year's Captain America: Civil War followed by a new Spider-Man feature in July 2017. Butterfield was reported as the front-runner back at the end of April and other than a brief report saying Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible) was still in the mix that never changed. Word is the new Spider-Man will keep Peter Parker a lot younger, a lot longer, focusing on his high school years and word is they plan to go with a tone matching that of a John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Other names that were once on the short list of contenders for the Spidey role included Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Timothee Chalamet »

80s Fashion On Film

13 May 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The bright, brilliant fashion of the 1980s has often been captured on film – the over-the-top nature of the clothes lends itself beautifully to cinema, with some of the most iconic outfits of all time captured in this era. To celebrate the home entertainment release of A Most Violent Year, in which Jessica Chastain showcases an incredible array of 1980s-era Armani, we take a look at other films which demonstrate the fashion of the decade.

Submarine (2010)

Richard Ayoade’s comedy drama stars Craig Roberts as 15 year-old Oliver Tate, who has two major ambitions – to lose his virginity to the beautiful Jordana (Yamin Paige), and to save his parents’ rocky relationship (a task made all the more difficult when his mother’s ex-lover reappears in their lives). Costume designer Charlotte Walters does a brilliant job of capturing the wonderfully quirky take on the classic coming-of-age tale, dressing the young cast in a wonderful array of duffle coats, »

Beyond Fright Review: Beyond Clueless (2014)

7 May 2015 6:54 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It has been said that John Hughes perfected the teenage experience with films like The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles, but the teen films that followed the Hughes empire added a tougher bite to the idyllic suburban upbringing.  Between the success of Clueless and the seeming “end” of modern teen films with Mean Girls’, teen films were crafted by throwing convention and controversy to the wind. 24-year-old critic/writer/director Charlie Lyne is a man after my own heart. Thanks to the wonderful world of Netflix, I was able to catch his documentary Beyond Clueless, a film that uses the narrative of late 90s/00s teen films to analyze the high school experience. There are plenty of “coming-of-age” documentaries that sample from the world of John Hughes but Beyond Clueless gives an analysis of the teen world of the pre and post Columbine inhabitants with the assistance of over 200 teen »

Robert Downey Jr. Is Adorable While Talking About Acting, The Pick-Up Artist—Watch a Throwback '80s Interview!

30 April 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Before Robert Downey Jr. was Iron Man, he was a Pick-Up Artist. At the age of 22, he played Jack Jericho and was romancing none other than The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink's Molly Ringwald, a fellow member of what was referred to as the Brat Pack of the '80s, in the 1987 romantic comedy The Pick-Up Artist, which was the first movie to feature Downey in a main role. In an interview carried out for what is now E!, Downey, looking adorable in a black T-shirt, talked about making the leap from supporting actor to leading man...and it seemed like he wasn't too comfortable being in the spotlight.

Week in Review: Study reveals growing gender gap in film industry

24 April 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This week, Variety reported on a study that was released confirming what many already know about the film industry, or at the very least anecdotally: Women are having an increasingly hard time breaking in.

The study showed that there’s a large gender gap between independently financed and directed projects by women when compared to projects within the studio system. The Sundance Institute and Women in Film looked at movies in competition at Sundance between 2002 and 2014 compared to the top 1300 grossing films between the same time period. Men appeared at Sundance at a ratio of 3 to 1 more often than women, but an even more staggering 23 to 1 when looking at studio films.

Further, half of the industry executives surveyed believed that films directed by women did not appeal as broadly as films directed by men. A quarter of those surveyed added that they shared a “perceived lack of ambition” in women directors, »

Original 'Breakfast Club' Script Discovered at High School with Alternate Title

22 April 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

This continues to be an interesting year for trivia about The Breakfast Club. The classic teen movie, which was written and directed by John Hughes, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, and while commemorative screenings were being held at SXSW and around the country last month, we also learned that there was going to be a nude shower scene, which Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy protested against, and that Rick Moranis had been in the movie as the janitor but was fired early on during production.  Now comes word that The Breakfast Club was originally titled Saturday Breakfast Club. The information comes from documents accompanying an early draft of Hughes's script dated September 21, 1983 (roughly six months before filming began) found in a filing cabinet at Maine...

Take Two: Do I Still Hate Ferris Bueller?

16 April 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly series in which writers revisit for the first time in ages their youthful passions and reconsider how well they hold up with the passage of time. When “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: was released in 1986, I was 17 years old ( a surly, difficult 17 years old); which is to say,I was the exact same age as the character Ferris Bueller; which is to say, the worst possible age to enjoy a film about him. To this put in some context, growing up in the late 1970’s and early 80’s was a glorious time to be a very young movie-goer.  Comedies in particular – were at their most bawdy and anarchic, which is exactly what a 10 year old boy wants. We were allowed to see on the screen in those days all sorts things that it is now horrifying to imagine a 10 year old was allowed to see; but as a 10 year old, »

Blu-ray Review: 'The Breakfast Club'

10 April 2015 1:03 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★ The legendary (if media-propagated) Brat Pack proved to be an intrinsic part of 80s pop culture, and was a movement which grew primarily out of the films of John Hughes. The Michigan-born filmmaker enjoyed an incredibly prolific run in a relatively short time, but it was his seminal work The Breakfast Club (now celebrating its 30th anniversary) which stood out from the rest of the titles and really put him on the map as a key on-screen chronicler of teen angst. Finding a place within the hearts of subsequent teenagers and referenced much later (and most glaringly) by Dawson's Creek creator Kevin Williamson, The Breakfast Club has, happily, stood the test of time.

3 April 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We are back and I guess this episode is more about collecting ourselves than anything else. Laremy only got back in town late last night so since he didn't watch any new movies we are holding our Furious 7 review until Tuesday's episode so we can both review it. As for this episode is concerned, I did work in some chatter about Mad Max and Ex Machina, and we answer some listener questions, play some games, but more than anything just catch up as it was also the first time I spoke with Laremy since he got back. Hope you enjoy what is sort of an "all over the place" episode, but we do our best to keep it under control. If you are on Twitter, we have a Twitter account dedicated to the podcast at @bnlpod.

'The Breakfast Club': Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy Look Back 30 Years Later (Exclusive)

31 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week the Internet had a collective heart attack as it became apparent that the anniversary of the day that "The Breakfast Club" is supposed to take place happened 31 years earlier. Of course, "The Breakfast Club" is a movie and not a historical document (one that came out 30 years ago), but that doesn't matter. Because talking about John Hughes's immortal classic is fun and people will do it at every conceivable juncture.

"The Breakfast Club," of course, starred Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy, as a group of disparate teens united for a Saturday's worth of detention (Paul Gleason very memorably essayed the role of the meddling principle -- "I make over $30,000 a year!"). Recently, to celebrate the movie's anniversary and commemorate the newly released (and truly incredible deluxe edition Blu-ray package), the film held a pair of screenings in Austin, Texas, as »

Banished From 'The Breakfast Club': Actress Recalls the Burn of Getting Cut From John Hughes’ Film

For an aspiring actress from Sandusky, Ohio (population 25,000), auditioning for and getting cast in the role of a fresh-out-of-college gym teacher in John HughesThe Breakfast Club was the big break I’d been hoping for. My character — who was at school for a Saturday practice — originally began as a swim instructor but evolved into a gym teacher because I actually taught aerobics professionally at the time. John told me that my part was meant to bridge the gap between the students and the establishment. For my big scene I’d deliver a speech in the

15 Things We Learned from The Breakfast Club Commentary

23 March 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

John Hughes wasn’t much of a name yet in 1985 when The Breakfast Club was released, but it was already clear that he was one to watch. His scripts for Mr. Mom and National Lampoon’s Vacation had resulted in box-office hits, and while his own directorial debut — Sixteen Candles — wasn’t as immediately beloved it showed the mash-up of affection and wit that would become his trademark. The Breakfast Club has its detractors, but for most viewers the film offers even a minor glimpse back to their teen years. Not everyone fit into these specific five molds — the athlete (Emilio Estevez), the princess (Molly Ringwald), the criminal (Judd Nelson), the brain (Anthony Michael Hall) and the basket case (Ally Sheedy) — but there’s an honesty here even within the characterizations. The film was re-released onto Blu-ray earlier this month with a remastered picture and additional extras including a previous commentary track with Nelson and Hall. The »
