First image from Jem and the Holograms movie

25 February 2015 2:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been nearly a year since we got our first poster for the upcoming adaptation of 80s cartoon Jem and the Holograms, but now we have our first official look at the flick.

The blurry image is taken from the latest issue of Elle, and has been blown up from its original small size – hence the poor quality. But we think you get the idea. Look – a keytar!

Check out the image below:

Directed by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Jem and the Holograms stars Aubrey Peeples (Nashville) as Jem, Stefanie Scott (A.N.T. Farm) as Kimber, Aurora Perrineau (Pretty Little Liars) as Shana, and Hayley Kiyoko (The Fosters) as Aja with Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers) and Molly Ringwald (The Breakfast Club) in unspecified roles. The film is being produced by Jason Blum (The Conjuring), along with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun. »

'Blood Simple' to Albert Brooks: Why Spring of 1985 was something special

20 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are roughly 900,000 tribute pieces online this week about the 1985 John Hughes film "The Breakfast Club," and I understand the motivation. If you were the right age when the film was released (I was 15 at the time), that movie felt like a lightning bolt right to the face. Hughes treated teenagers like they were actual people with complex emotional lives worthy of respect, and while that would seem to be a logical approach to writing about any character, it certainly didn't feel average when he did it. He wrote about that secret world of teenagers with what felt like laser accuracy, and he basically created an entire industry of movies that tried to tap into that same audience. So certainly, there is much to celebrate when looking back at that particular film, but when I went to look at a list of the films that came out in 1985, a year »

Robbie Amell Says Everybody Has Felt Like a ‘Duff’

19 February 2015 7:40 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For those over 30 years old, Duff means “designated ugly fat friend” and it’s a term that’s about to go mainstream thanks to the new teen comedy starring Mae Whitman (Parenthood) and Robbie Amell (The Flash).

Even though the term may be millennial vernacular, Amell says the feeling is universal. “I feel like everybody has felt like the Duff at some time,” he tells ETonline. “You have to be pretty messed up to think other people were the Duff.”

Watch: Scoop On Firestorm in Next Week's Episode of 'The Flash'

And Amell, who is quite handsome now -- his stunning blue eyes and chiseled abs don’t hurt -- reveals there was a time when he didn’t feel that way. “I had bad skin in high school and that was something that always messed with me and screwed with my confidence,” he says.

“I feel like it’s something personal that you have »

Flashback: Molly Ringwald Was Worried She Wasn't Pretty Enough for 'The Breakfast Club'

18 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's hard to believe but it's been 30 years since we spent Saturday detention with a princess, a criminal, a basket case, a jock and a brain.

The Breakfast Club first premiered in theaters in 1985 and Et was on the set of the John Hughes flick, years before it became the American teen classic it is today.

The film, about five high schoolers gathered on Saturday for a detention session, starred Judd Nelson (John Bender), Emilio Estevez (Andrew Clark), Anthony Michael Hall (Brian Johnson), Ally Sheedy (Allison Reynolds), and Molly Ringwald (Claire Standish), who admitted to Et in 1985 that she didn't feel right for the part of the princess because she was so different from her.

"Am I pretty enough to do this [role]?" Ringwald said. "That was my biggest worry and I'm not what you would call the conventional beauty, at least I don't feel that way. But you know »

The Duff Fights Society's Beauty Obsessions — With Makeovers

17 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Shove off, John Hughes. The Duff, a high school comedy by Ari Sandel, opens by declaring that The Breakfast Club's social categories are, like, way passé. Explains lead Bianca (Mae Whitman), “Jocks play video games, princesses are on antidepressants, and geeks rule the world.” Today, be ye goth kid, science dweeb, or just plain ordinary, only one distinction counts: Are you hot or not?

Bianca is not. She's what her jerk neighbor Wes (Robbie Amell), the football captain, calls the Duff, i.e., the “Designated Ugly Fat Friend.” Before audiences grab their pitchforks to defend Whitman's honor, Wes hastily adds that DUFFs don't have to be ugly or fat — merely less cute than their mates. Further, being the Duff is a noble sacr »

‘Fifty Shades’ Star Jamie Dornan on the Time He Drunk Auditioned for ‘Rock of Ages’

17 February 2015 11:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jamie Dornan is now a bonafide box office star thanks to “Fifty Shades of Grey,” but the 32-year-old actor spent a stretch of his 20s in Los Angeles trying to make it as an actor. During a two-hour interview with Variety in January, he talked about some of his early experiences, his worst audition ever and the time he saw Fabio at the gym.

Dornan, who grew up in Ireland, started as a fashion model.

“My sister had encouraged me to go on this U.K. reality show called ‘Model Behavior.’ I reluctantly went. I didn’t get very far on the show, thankfully. I ended up joining the agency that was behind it, and then I was with them. I never got a huge amount of joy when I was modeling. No disrespect. I didn’t want to be one of those guys modeling when I was in my 40s. »

15 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The 1985 John Hughes teen comedy classic The Breakfast Club celebrates its 30th anniversary on February 15. That’s right, it’s been thirty years since the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, and the criminal walked into detention as strangers and left as something else. The beloved coming-of-age film — which was a critical and box office success upon its release — featured some of the biggest stars of the ’80s, who all graduated to various levels of success after The Breakfast Club.

So what are Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, and Judd Nelson — who were all members of the iconic Brat Pack — up to since they spent that fateful Saturday afternoon together in Shermer High School?

What happened to the cast of Breakfast Club? John Hughes classic is 30

15 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

30 years ago today, John Hughes's teen movie The Breakfast Club opened in the Us, and although it wasn't a runaway box office hit, in the years since it has rightly claimed a place as a screen classic.

Buoyed by brilliant performances, a sharp script and direction from Hughes and that Simple Minds track, this is a film we return to again and again. But what happened to its stars? We go then and now with the cast to find out what happened to the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess and the criminal.

Anthony Michael Hall - Brian Johnson

A staple of John Hughes movies in the '80s, Hall brought endearing geeky charm to National Lampoon's Vacation , Sixteen Candles and Weird Science.

As he grew out of child star roles, Hall sought to shed his established screen persona with a diverse selection of character parts across film and TV. »

Celebrate The Breakfast Club's 30th Anniversary with 30 Life Lessons

14 February 2015 8:55 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The Breakfast Club opened in theaters on Feb. 15, 1985. It has since become a classic, celebrated not only for capturing the decade from which it originated but also for nailing the hapless, yet hopeful angst of teenage life in any decade. Even thirty years later, there's a lot to learn from this story of five disparate teens - Andy the Jock (Emilio Estevez), Brian the Brain (Anthony Michael Hall), Bender the Criminal (Judd Nelson), Claire the Princess (Molly Ringwald) and Allison the Basket Case (Ally Sheedy) - forced to spend Saturday detention together. Here's our take on the thirty best lessons. »

'The Breakfast Club' Cast: Where Are They Now? (Photos)

14 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Why do we still care about "The Breakfast Club"? Thirty years after its release (on February 15, 1985), it remains the definitive movie about the American high school experience. In his tale of five diverse kids bonding during a Saturday in detention, writer/director John Hughes captured some eternal elements of being a teenager -- the awkwardness, the alienation, the casual cruelty, the social hierarchies, the longing for connection, and most of all, the penchant for self-dramatization. "The Breakfast Club" takes all of this as seriously as teenagers do, which is why teens through the decades continue to see themselves in the the film's characters.

Of course, none of this would have worked without the sensitive performances of the five stars, the nucleus of what the adult press quickly and derisively dubbed the Brat Pack. The name stuck, and maybe that's why fans weren't surprised at the rocky paths they all took »

Celebrate Love and The Breakfast Club's 30th Anniversary with These Valentines

13 February 2015 4:40 PM, PST | | See recent news »

There are plenty of films about the troubles and triumphs of love in the '80s teen movie canon. Say Anything taught dudes about the importance of grand romantic gestures. Sixteen Candles showed ladies that just being yourself is more than enough to land Jake Ryan. Ferris Bueller's Day Off taught both genders that life moves pretty fast, and we should all stop and look around with our best friends and significant others once in a while. But when we think about cinematic tales of teen romance, The Breakfast Club usually isn't the first movie to come to mind. Well, »

13 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Get ready to feel old, The Breakfast Club turns 30 this week. Yes John Hughes’ coming of age classic – which was first released on February 15th 1985 – is now so old that the original cast’s grandchildren could theoretically be whiling away their Saturday mornings in Shermer High School. Go figure.
