Exclusive: Jon Wright Talks Robot Overlords

18 November 2014 3:14 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Some of the most memorable posters of recent years have emanated from the imaginations of fans, and this Drew Struzan-y effort for upcoming sci-fi adventure Robot Overlords is another such. Crafted by Scotsman Brian Taylor - Aka Candykiller - it captures the "'80s Amblin" spirit director Jon Wright is promising for his new sci-fi adventure and showcases his three stars, Gillian Anderson, Ben Kingsley and Aussie newcomer Callan McAuliffe. Click below for a closer look. Unlike those Amblin classics - The Goonies, especially - its gang of intrepid kids don't hail from Middle America. "It's set in a small seaside town,” Wright tells Empire, “where you’d have seen Emily Lloyd in Wish You Were Here once upon a time – not where you’d expect to see two-storey robots.”Those draconian robots, the clanking, by-now slightly rusting menace, have ceaselessly patrolled a technology-bereft Earth for three long years, »

Actor and radio host Sean Astin applied to become a member of The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on October 27 after speaking to a rapt audience of journalists and fans about his career and his political radio show, Vox Populi. Astin, most known to fans as Mikey in The Goonies, the title character in Rudy, and Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, started Vox Populi in 2012. Vox Populi, the “Voice of the ‘Occasionally Interested’ People,” is Astin’s vision of an arena for bi-partisan discussion about what are often hot-button issues in politics and media. As host, Astin, who has been long interested in and active in politics, moderates civilized discussions between guests with a wide variety of viewpoints, including Noam Chomsky; Representative Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee; Ben Shapiro, author of The People vs. Barack Obama; Cullen Hoback, director of »

The Goonies Playing Cards are Now Available

30 October 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier this year, a Kickstarter was launched to create a deck of playing cards inspired by Steven Spielberg's The Goonies. They reached their goal, and now the playing cards are available for purchase! The cards are available on FireBox for only $21.00. This is a great collectors item for anyone who is a fan of The Goonies. The cards include art by Nat Iwata, and the characters include Chunk, Mikey, One-Eyed Willie, Mouth, Sloth, Mama and the rest of the gang. Here's the description they released with the announcement. 

"Hey you guys!" 

Three decades have passed since Sloth garbled out those fabled words, yet The Goonies still remains one of the most-loved movies of all time – they just don't make children's adventure films like they used to. 

So what better way to immortalise these timeless characters than on this intricately designed deck of playing cards. Mouth, Chunk, Mikey, One-eyed Willie »

24 October 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator was released 30 years ago this weekend—but our Hillary Busis hadn’t seen it until this past week.

Goonies never say die! Sean Astin and Jonathan Ke Quan reunite

20 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"Goonies never say die!" That's the battle cry from the classic '80s blockbuster, and nearly 30 years on this still holds true for the stars of the film.

The Goonies 2 still feels like it's a way off, but we've got a tiny taste of what it might look like thanks to none other than Elijah Wood.

What do The Goonies look like now?

Wood reunited with Sean Astin to snap this still of his Lord of the Rings co-star with Jonathan Ke Quan. Astin, of course, played lead character Mikey while Quan was gadget-mad Data.

Earlier this summer, Astin said he was game for a new Goonies with original director Richard Donner and producer Steven Spielberg.

Blu-ray Review – The ‘Burbs (1989)

15 September 2014 3:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The ‘Burbs, 1989

Directed by Joe Dante

Starring Tom Hanks, Bruce DernCarrie Fisher, Rick Duconnun, Corey Feldman, Wendy Schaal, Henry Gibson, Brother Theodore, Courney Gains and Dick Miller

Synopsis:

An overstressed suburbanite and his paramilitaric neighbor struggle to prove their paranoid theory that the new family in town is a front for a cannibalistic cult.

In the original series of The Twilight Zone, there is an episode entitled The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street in which a suburban street comes under the influence of a group of aliens who slowly turn the residents against each other as they fear their neighbour is not to be trusted. Director Joe Dante has stated that he was influenced by Rod Serling’s seminal sci-fi show (and he re-worked the classic episode It’s a Good Life for Twilight Zone: The Movie) and some of that is on show in under-appreciated comedy The ‘Burbs. »

‘The Art of John Alvin’ Book Review

13 September 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Drew Struzan might be the name you first think of when someone mentions movie poster artist, but few can argue that the work of John Alvin is not a equally iconic. Alvin’s art has be collected in great effort into one tight package in The Art of John Alvin by his wife Andrea Alvin. The high quality coffee table book collects the late artist’s film poster art in their final form and in the earliest stages when he was just starting to figure out the layouts for some of the posters that would go on to be some of the most iconic of all time.

An introduction gives a brief overview of his life and his earliest experiences painting images from the films that made him fall in love with the art, like 1954’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and 1960’s Spartacus. It details his life, marriage, and sudden »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Where Is All the Buried Pirate Treasure?

27 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As I tend to watch movies for a living, periodically I am faced with potential career choices that might be more lucrative for me. A stint aboard a space mining freighter for the Weyland-Yutani Corporation is a bit too futuristic for me, and I’ve missed the boat for enrolling in med school or law school. However, there seems to be one way to make money that doesn’t seem to take any formal schooling: treasure hunting. Of course, before I kiss my wife and kids good-bye and embark on a whirlwind global journey to get rich off of other people’s plundering, I had to look into this career choice a bit. I started by thinking: Where can I dig up a buried pirate’s treasure chest? The Answer: Only in the movies, unless you get creative or have unlimited funds. Pirate treasure has been the source of many entertaining films, including »

Josh Brolin: 'Of Course I Would Do' 'Goonies' Sequel

22 August 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Josh Brolin told Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon on Thursday that he definitely wants to be involved in the rumored sequel for The Goonies, the 1985 cult-classic adventure-comedy that gave the acclaimed actor his big break. But there's a problem: He can't tell how serious the reports are – partly because he doesn't trust the latest source (TMZ) and partly because the sequel idea comes up all the time without real results.

In the TMZ interview that re-fueled the rumor mill, original Goonies director Richard Donner talked about his plans for the sequel, »
