The Stars of "Weird Science" -- See What They Look Like 30 Years Later!

8 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

30 years ago today, two geeks from Shermer, Illinois created Lisa, the perfect woman, with a little computer know-how. That's right, "Weird Science" came out exactly three decades ago and was the third film John Hughes stepped behind the camera for as director, following "The Breakfast Club" and "Sixteen Candles." The flick was also the fourth time Hughes had worked with star Anthony Michael Hall, who appeared in both of the aforementioned films, as well as the Hughes-penned "Vacation." Fun fact: Hall reportedly chose this flick over doing a "Vacation" sequel -- thus starting a franchise tradition of switching the actors playing the Griswold children each film. Joining Hall were Ilan Mitchell-Smith and Kelly LeBrock, a former model who turned her sights towards acting. "Weird Science" went on to become a cult classic and spawned a USA series of the same name, with Vanessa Angel taking over the role of Lisa. »

What happened to the cast of Weird Science? Checking in on Kelly LeBrock, Robert Downey Jr and the rest

12 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

What if you could create the perfect woman just from the tap of a keyboard and a click of a mouse? That's the tantalising premise at the heart of John Hughes's delightfully dorky teen classic, which celebrates its 30th birthday today (August 2).

To mark this momentous day, we look back at the cast of the beloved '80s film to find out what they've done since. Whatever happened to that fella Robert Downey Jr...?

Kelly LeBrock

'80s sex symbol Kelly LeBrock hit big with her first two roles in Gene Wilder's The Woman in Red and Weird Science, but only appeared in a handful of films after - among them Betrayal of the Dove, Tracks of a Killer and Zerophilia.

She moved out to a farm in Santa Barbara where she looks after animals and sleeps under the stars with her horse, but she keeps cropping up »

'Spider-Man' Reboot Humor Will Serve as a "Safety Net for Geeks"

27 July 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein gave us Horrible Bosses, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and this weekend's Vacation. I'll allow you to come to a conclusion on their body of work on your own as I'll have more to add with my review of Vacation later this week, but for now realize these two are signed on to write the screenplay for the upcoming Untitled Spider-Man Reboot, which is said to be approaching the webslinger with an eye for humor in the vein of John Hughes. It's definitely a new tact when it comes to tackling these comic book movies as the common theme for so long seemed to be a "dark and gritty" approach with celebs saying, "It's going to be a lot like The Dark Knight," in all of their pre-production interviews. Marvel, however, has taken the light and frothy, »

Watch: Video Games Are The Latest Craze In This Vintage Behind-The-Scenes Look At 'WarGames'

9 July 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In today’s climate of cannibalizing existing properties to wring out every cent possible, it’s surprising that a “WarGames” remake hasn’t happened yet (though one is certainly in development). It’s been thirty-two years since the release of the John Badham-directed Cold War and science-fiction film, and what better way to revisit it than with this vintage behind-the-scenes video via Eyes On Cinema. The 1983 film follows Matthew Broderick as a high school kid who naively hacks into the sophisticated computer system at Norad, thus nearly kicking off World War III. The cast also features a pre-“The Breakfast Club” Ally Sheedy along with character actors Dabney Coleman and Barry Corbin. Running nearly four minutes long, the featurette was originally released at the time of the film’s premiere and has short interviews with both the young leads and one with director Badham as well that pinpoints exactly why genius hacker characters. »

Marisa Tomei to appear in Spider-Man?

9 July 2015 2:44 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Marisa Tomei is in talks to play Spider-Man's Aunt May. The 50-year-old American actress - whose previous film credits include 'My Cousin Vinny' and 'What Women Want' - is wanted by Marvel and Sony to star as the aunt who raised Peter Parker in their next installment of the 'Spider-Man' franchise. The Oscar-winning star was made an offer late last week to appear alongside Tom Holland, who was recently handed the coveted role of the iconic superhero, Variety reports. But while Tom is expected to make a cameo appearance in the eagerly-awaited 'Captain America: Civil War', it seems unlikely that Marisa - assuming she accepts the offer - will feature on screen so soon. Last month, meanwhile, Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, admitted the new Spider-Man will be inspired by the work of director John Hughes, who helmed 'The Breakfast Club' and 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'. »

Interview: Directors Chris Lofing, Travis Cluff Swing on ‘The Gallows’

8 July 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Horror films have many players, but few contenders. Writer/directors Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff debut with “The Gallows,” a “found footage” movie about a force that haunts a typical American high school, complete with familiar student types, and touches on the mysteries of unresolved events and their backlash.

In 1993, a student named Charlie Grimmille is killed performing a hangman’s act in the school play called “The Gallows.” Twenty years after this event, the school resurrects the failed production in an attempt to honor the memory of Charlie. When a group of four students break into the school and onto the play’s set after hours, a series of unexpected situations start to occur, for which there is no escape. Lofing and Cluff go “old school” in this overt and psychological horror movie, and the result is a chilling fright fest, containing the “presence” of unseen forces.

The Breakfast Club Screens Wednesday Night at Schlafly Bottleworks – ‘Strange Brew’

25 June 2015 7:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe? ”

The Breakfast Club screens Wednesday night July 1st at Schlafly Bottleworks at 8pm

You never know what’s brewing at Webster University’s Strange Brew cult film series. It’s always the first Wednesday evening of every month, and they always come up with some cult classic to show while enjoying some good food and great suds. The fun happens at Schlafly Bottleworks Restaurant and Bar in Maplewood (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143).

In 1985, director/writer John Hughes crafted The Breakfast Club, his hilarious and surprisingly thoughtful tale that still seems as fresh as it did 30 years ago. Five teenagers, each representing a different clique in their high school, are forced to spend an entire Saturday in detention together for various infractions each has committed–some of which become central to the plot, as the characters gradually become aware »

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 »

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, »

Mallrats 2 title pays homage to the Brat Pack plus more casting news

An immense fire has been lit under Kevin Smith's ass to make Mallrats 2 and in the span of 2 months he's assembled the bulk of his cast, the first draft of his script and a title; Mallbrats. Smith has stated before that the original film was set out to pay homage to John Hughes (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club) and it looks like that inspiration is still there, as the core cast members of those films were often referred to as 'The Brat Pack'.

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 »

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.
