Amblin Entertainment is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of two of its biggest hits of all time. These are movies that went onto have a long shelf life, and are both adored by fans. But it seems that the Back to The Future 30th Anniversary celebration has dwarfed The Goonies. That movie is getting released back into theaters, will have a special edition Blu-ray, and a ton of other collectibles that are hitting store shelves this October. But The Goonies isn't being completely left out in the cold. Amazon has something very cool planned, and its something collectors are definitely going to want to get their hands on.
Amazon has started pressing and producing its own line of vinyl records under the Amazon label. And on October 9th, they are releasing 5 vinyl soundtracks to some of the 80s most beloved movies. Including The Goonies, which is getting a special 30th Anniversary release. »
Last night's Celebrity Wife Swap was one of the weirder ones yet, and it has many people asking this morning, "Is Corey Feldman running an all-girl sex cult?" It certainly appears so, though it's not clear if this is all an act, if he is in on the joke, or if he has truly gone batshit crazy. His behavior on the episode, which saw the former Lost Boys and Goonies star swapping girlfriends/fiancés with comedian Tommy Davidson, certainly indicates that he has lost touch with all reality, as the former teen heartthrob presents himself as a cross between Charles Manson, Hugh M. Hefner and Michael Jackson.
Corey Feldman introduces his girls, known as Corey's Angels, on the show. And this is a very real thing that he does. He tours around the country performing with these woman, three of whom live with him in his Feldmansion. This Celebrity »
The real-life Goonies house has closed its doors after its owners got sick of the bad behaviour of pilgrims turning up to do the truffle shuffle.
The house in Astoria, Oregon had attracted over a thousand visitors every day, but its owners have now covered the property with a blue tarpaulin and handwritten signs sending movie fans away, Kgw reports.
"Imagine that you buy a house, fix it up, then the city of Astoria encourages thousands to come stand in front," read one sign.
"Most are kind, fun and welcome, but many are not."
Other notices read "Private Property" and "Access Closed to Goonies House".
Astoria City Councilman Russ Warr, who lives down the street from the home, said: "I'm surprised that she waited this long.
"They park on the 'no-parking' zones, they park on the sidewalks, »
Can you imagine thousands of people standing in your yard every day for years on end doing The Truffle Shuffle, made famous by Chunk in the 1985 classic The Goonies? That was the breaking point for one woman in Astoria, Oregon. She just so happens to own the exact house where Mikey (Sean Astin and his brother older Brand (Josh Brolin) lived in the Richard Donner directed family adventure. And She's decided to shut that noise down!
The house, which was once a very popular tourist destination and the site of an annual Goonies convention and multiple cast reunions, has been closed to visitors after the owner grew disenfranchised with people visiting it every single day. The most popular area of the house is the front fence, where Mouth (Corey Feldman) made Chunk (Jeff Cohen) do his infamous, bare stomach shimmy known as The Truffle Shuffle.

The house from the 1980’s Richard Donner-directed Steven Spielberg-produced classic The Goonies has been shut down by the property owner after she was sent over the edge by movie fans. The Goonies house, located in Astoria Oregon, the exterior of which can be seen in the classic “Truffle Shuffle” sequence, had been attracting up to 1,500 […]

Astoria, Oregon isn’t a hotbed for tourism, a "Destination City" like the locales of Miami, San Francisco, Chicago or New York City. However, thousands of tourists who do flock to the small coast town in the Pacific Northwest tend to seek out locations that were used in Richard Donner’s The Goonies. Except, too many fans have flocked to a specific location recently, and now the law has to get involved. The Daily Astorian has a report stating that Sandi Preston, the owner of the home that was used for the Walsh family in Donner’s 1985 adventure movie, has said "enough is enough" when it comes to fans wanting to get a photograph while touring the small town. Having dealt with a steady stream of unwanted visitors for far too long, Preston has asked the City Council and the Chamber of »

Yesterday we brought you some comments from Chris Columbus stating that he’s “heavily developing” reboots to Gremlins and The Goonies at Warner Bros., and now he’s admitted that he’s keen to revisit another of his past glories at the studio, with the filmmaker revealing to Entertainment Weekly that he wants to make another Harry Potter movie.
“I would love to go back and do another one. Not Fantastic Beasts as much, which I think is going to be amazing, but I would love to do another movie with those three characters — Harry, Hermione, and Ron. I’m just fascinated about what happened to them after the end of the last movie, because then they cut to 18 years ahead. There’s 18 years there of great Harry Potter stories. I don’t have the courage to actually mention that to [J.K. Rowling] because I have such respect for her. She should »

Depending on which way you look at it, this is either very bad news or very good news...director Chris Columbus is still trying very hard to bring a Goonies reboot and a Gremlins reboot to the big screen. As someone who grew up on those movies, I have mixed feelings. I think there's room for a Gremlins follow-up, whether it be a remake or a straight sequel, and the film could actually benefit from the advances in special effects. The Goonies though, should never be touched. It's a stone cold childhood classic, and I believe that any director would struggle to capture the magic of the original. For his part, Columbus maintains that he is staying attached to the projects - which have both been stuck in development limbo for quite some time - so that at least he can have a say in how they are done and »

Reissue, repackage, re-evaluate. Remakes and reboots, obviously, continue to be an important line at the studio movie factory, but two projects surprisingly stuck on the conveyer belt are Gremlins and The Goonies. Gremlins, we learned a few months ago, has a new writer after its years in development hell. But what of The Goonies, of which we've heard nothing for well over a year. According to original writer Chris Columbus, it's still in active development, and he himself is carefully overseeing."The stuff that I’m involved with — the Gremlins and Goonies reboots, for instance," says the man who went on to direct Home Alone and the first two Harry Potters, "they would do those without me. So, I’m staying involved just so I can be protective and actually protect what people love about those movies so it doesn’t go off track."So far, so ho-hum. What's interesting »
Before making the jump to directing, Chris Columbus got his start writing a pair of ’80s classics in Gremlins and The Goonies, and as all manner of remakes and franchise updates continue to dominate the box office, Columbus has become embroiled in attempts by Warner Bros. to bring both properties back to the big screen. Of course, with rabid fans of both films instinctively being wary of studio attempts to cash in on their nostalgia, WB is treading carefully.
Now, with Columbus’ blockbuster Pixels about to hit theaters, the director is out on the press circuit and has confirmed that he’s “heavily developing” the two remakes at WB. However, he added that, “it’s a slow process and I don’t think it will happen too quickly.” You don’t say?
This is really little more than a “never say die” update from Columbus, with the director commenting that »

Over the past few years, we’ve lost count of the number of times there’s been talk that the long-rumoured new instalments of Gremlins and The Goonies could be moving forward, only for the projects to seemingly slip back into development hell.
Well, now we have another update direct from Chris Columbus, writer of the original two movies, who has told Screen Crush that he’s “heavilty developing” both projects with Warner Bros.:
“The stuff that I’m involved with — the Gremlins and Goonies reboots, for instance — they would do that without me. So, I’m staying involved just so I can be protective and actually protect what people love about those movies so it doesn’t go off track.”

Fans have been waiting years for sequels to two of Amblin's most beloved 80s movies. Way back in April of 2014, original Goonies director Richard Donner claimed that The Goonies 2 was definitely happening with the entire cast set to return. Since that time, we've seen little to no development on the project. And producer Seth Grahame-Smith has been promising a Gremlins reboot for almost as long. It would be easy for fans to assume neither of these projects is actually ever going to happen. But Chris Columbus, promoting his new sci-fi action comedy Pixels, assures us neither movie is dead. And both are still in 'heavy development'.
With both movies promised for so long, hardcore fans have tuned out most recent updates, writing it off as filmmakers who simply wish to keep their titles in the public consciousness. Both The Goonies 2 and Gremlins have gone in and out of development. »
Before he began a successful career as a director starting with 1987's "Adventures in Babysitting," Chris Columbus began his career as a screenwriter. Two of his first scripts have since gone on to become bonafide classics - "Gremlins" and "The Goonies".
Both films, now just over thirty years old each, have also been the subject of rumored reboots in recent years, with new takes on both properties in early development. So far though, they still seem to be stuck in that stage and have yet to progress.
Ahead of the release of Columbus' new film "Pixels," the director is out doing press and was asked by Screen Crush how the two reboots are going. He says they are still in active development, but that they're very slow going:
"The stuff that I'm involved with - the Gremlins and Goonies reboots, for instance - they would do that without me. So, »

Has it really been 30 years since Back to the Future first arrived in cinemas? The '80s classic is one of those films that stands firm under repeat viewings, retaining its humour, heart and on-point performances from Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and co. Simply put, there isn't a frame out of place in Back to the Future.
Though Robert Zemeckis's film still feels as fresh as ever, the world has changed dramatically across the three main periods the Back to the Future series spans. Digital Spy digs deep into the history books to find out how the world looked in 1955, 1984, and where we are now.

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one).
