The ‘Burbs, 1989
Directed by Joe Dante
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. »

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 »

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 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, »
Where do we stand on The Goonies 2? Obviously, we.re behind the idea. So is original Goonies director Richard Donner, who helped put the movie sequel back on our radars by telling TMZ it was happening. But Josh Brolin is taking the "I.ll believe it when I see it" road, and I.m not sure we can blame him. Brolin appeared on The Tonight Show last night, as you can see in the clip below, and discussed the possibility of The Goonies 2 while also douple-dipping by promoting his turn in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And because The Goonies celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon started with sequel talk. Brolin played along, but emphasized that these conversations happen every couple of years. It.s gotten to the point where they have said it so many times where I.ll »

Conan O'Brien Reenacts "Goonies" Scene Dressed as Sloth "You do a movie like that, you don’t know how it’s going to turn out, and then it turns out into a cult film," he told Jimmy Fallon. "And then you’re sick of hearing it after twenty years, because you haven’t done a film that’s any good that actually matches the Goonies." When the late night host pointed out that Richard Donner said [Steven] Spielberg had an idea for the sequel, Brolin responded, "I would do it in a second. Of course, »

There have been rumblings of a sequel to The Goonies for years, with the most recent, seemingly solid news coming from director Richard Donner saying that a sequel to The Goonies is in development. This is one of those situations where that's been said so many times before hat we'll only believe it when we see it. Still, it's cool that an actor like Josh Brolin still embraces his past association with a movie like that, especially when Christian Bale doesn't seem to want anything to do with The Newsies. So Jimmy Fallon had some fun with Brolin on "The Tonight Show" to honor The Goonies on its 30th anniversary. Watch! Here's Josh Brolin celebrating The Goonies with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on NBC: Considering The Goonies panel that was supposed to happen at Comic-Con got canceled, we're betting that plans that Donner was talking about back in »

Goonies never say die, though their yeses do sometimes come rather begrudgingly. After spending much of his morning Reddit Ama dishing behind-the-scenes stories about the kiddie cult flick, Josh Brolin continued to use his “Sin City 2” press blitz to discuss “The Goonies” — a movie released 30 years ago — on the “Tonight” Show.

Though he was ostensibly promoting his role in the upcoming Robert Rodriguez sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Josh Brolin's Reddit Ama on Thursday was delightfully all over the map, with topics ranging from "The Goonies" ("I've never had more fun on a movie") to his disastrous "Thrashin'" audition ("an 18 wheeler ran over it") to the insanity of working with Paul Thomas Anderson ("It felt like swimming in a Ralph Steadman drawing") to that horrible moment on the set of "American Gangster" with Russell Crowe ("I went back to my trailer waiting to be fired"). But mostly he talked about "The Goonies," and god love him for it. Check out the 21 best moments from the spirited, candid and wildly entertaining Q&A below. 1.

Josh Brolin seems to love talking about “The Goonies” with fans as much as he loved starring in it.

As one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's latest additions, Josh Brolin looks to have a bit of a wait on his hands before he becomes as prolific as any of his other compatriots. With Guardians Of The Galaxy marking his McU debut as Thanos, we still have no clue when he'll be returning to terrorize our favorite comic book heroes in the future. Yet he's already starting to pick cinematic fights with his brothers and sisters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We love it. In his extremely charming and funny Ama from earlier this morning, Brolin talked about everything from how his father met his mother on the Batman show in the 60's, to a moment he shared with Steven Spielberg as a young kid on the set of The Goonies. But when you're talking to someone who's starred in a Marvel movie, the Marvel brand is going to come »
You may not be familiar with the late John Alvin’s name but you are more than likely familiar with his work. The incredibly talented artist was behind many of the most iconic film posters from the past few decades, from Et to Batman and Jurassic Park.
A new gorgeous book entitled The Art of John Alvin is packed with some of Alvin’s most impressive posters, designs and magnificent drawings, thanks to collaborative work with his wife Andrea and some others who have worked with him over the years.
Alvin’s career in poster-work began with Blazing Saddles in the 1970s but he did not stop there, going on to work on a variety of films, from Godfather Part III to The Goonies. Yet, despite the beauty of his posters, the real magic of this particular book lies with his other work. There are a couple of stunning portraits of Al Pacino, »

Most fans know that The Goonies star Corey Feldman voiced Donatello in the original 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While Michael Bay didn't bring the teen icon back for this summer's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action reboot, he did decide to steal (or pay homage, however you want to paint it) one of The Goonies better action sequences, which is showcased in a new extended TV spot. Watch as the four mutant brothers go on a wet and wild waterslide ride through the sewer system before farting pepperoni. This one is definitely for the kids who grew up loving both The Goonies and the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated TV series, both relics of the 80s. We also have a better version of poster art previously released weeks ago.

Adam Sandler vehicles are rarely films we look forward to seeing, but the sci-fi action comedy Pixels is primed to change that. Directed by Chris Columbus, the blockbuster centers on a group of old-school gamers who become an unlikely line of defense against invading aliens when extraterrestrials intercept feeds from arcade games, misinterpreting them as a declaration of war and launching attacks on Earth with the same eight-bit characters and strategies.
Faced with a powerful enemy he doesn’t fully understand, the President of the United States (Kevin James) recruits his childhood friends, including a TV mechanic (Sandler), a felon (Peter Dinklage) and a conspiracy theorist (Gad) to form the so-called Arcaders. Teaming them with a weapons specialist (Michelle Monaghan), the President entrusts the future of the world to this motley crew.
Speaking about the film with Entertainment Weekly, which debuted the above image, Columbus, who is still rolling cameras on Pixels, »
