There are few movies that tap into what it is to be a child, but The Goonies captures it perfectly. It may be adventurous and far-fetched, but that is the adventures we had when we were young. The Goonies: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition blu-ray celebrates the undying love that people have for the movie that never seems to age (even if the actors do).
With their homes in danger from the local rich developers a group of friends set off looking for pirate treasure. Little do they know that they will end up being pursued by the evil Fratelli gang intent on stealing it from them.
The Goonies works because what feels like a perfect storm of writing (by Steven Spielberg who came up with the story and Chris Columbus as screenwriter), directing from Richard Donner and the chemistry between the Goonies themselves. While actors such as Sean Astin, »

★★★★☆ "Goonies never say die", the now immortal rallying cry by young adventurer Mickey (Sean Astin) to his band of fellow teen treasure hunters can't help but echo the enduring appeal of this film. Thanks to endless Sunday afternoon television repeats and frequent appearances in pop culture, The Goonies (1985) has become something of a cherished kids classic. While it doesn't quite reach the heady heights of some of its Amblin stablemates of that era, there's a rough around the edges, knockabout quality to its undeniable charm.

If there are two people who desperately want The Goonies 2 to happen, it's original stars Sean Astin and Corey Feldman. While their other co-stars haven't really brought the movie up in the press too much since director Richard Donner announced it was happening way back in early 2014, these two have been most vocal about returning to the Astoria Goondocks. But it's looking more and more like The Goonies 2 will actually be a full-on reboot. And it's possible that none of the original cast will return. Jeff Cohen, who played Chunk in the 1985 Amblin classic, has already confirmed he's sitting out the sequel. Now, Sean Astin tells that the rest of the cast may not be back. About why we haven't seen The Goonies 2 yet, the actor had this to say.
They have lots of ideas and they've been developing in different ways, but I just don't think »
For movie fans of a certain age The Goonies is one of those quintessential films that is as close to universally loved as any movie can get. It.s been three decades since we saw the last adventure of the group of friends, and the clamor for a sequel has never died down. So why has there never been another Goonies movie? Sean Astin says it.s because it.s so difficult to recreate that same magic a second time. Speaking with Yahoo Movies, Astin, now 44 years old, would still love to see something new happen with the property, but he makes it sound like there.s a lot of fear regarding trying something new and getting it wrong. They have lots of ideas and they.ve been developing in different ways, but I just don.t think they.ve arrived at what they think the best option is. I »

The evil pirate of this film is none other than the legendary and fearsome Blackbeard, portrayed by Hugh Jackman.
To celebrate Neverland’s rich legacy of infamous marauders, we take a look back at some of the top pirates in film.
Captain Jack Sparrow
Well known for his staggering walk and stuttering talk, mostly resulting from a love of rum, Johnny Depp won us over as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean. Although Sparrow does not appear to be your conventional pirate as he arrives at Port Royal with no crew, or ship, and he has a few moments where we question his morals, he is generally a good-hearted pirate who helps Will Turner to save his love, »

Blessed with the all-important directorial power of final cut control, whatever ends up in the finished product is because of Abrams's say-so and not some Disney exec's.
During an hour-long talk with Vanity Fair, Brian Glazer bent Abrams's ear about what was what with the eagerly-anticipated sci-fi.
Asked whether he had final cut, Abrams said: "Yeah, yeah," before adding: "When you do a Disney project, there's a clause in there that you kind of go, 'Well, if I were a lawyer I could probably drive a truck through it...'"
This means, in effect, that if The Force Awakens was a total dog's dinner, Disney could pull it away from a director. Given that hasn't happened, it's still Abrams's movie. »

Lethal Weapon is heading to the small screen! Yes, a new TV series based on the popular action franchise starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover is going to happen on Fox. It is coming from Warner Bros. TV, which also turned the popular buddy cop action comedy Rush Hour into a series that will debut early next year. No casting has been announced at this time.
The series will be an hour long drama, and it will follow the same basic plot as the movie. The show already has a put pilot commitment. The Pilot will be written by former Chuck executive producer Matt Miller. He most recently created the ABC drama Forever, also for Wbtv.
Like Rush Hour, Lethal Weapon is a pretty straight adaptation of the film series upon which it is based, and will center on the central characters of detectives Roger Murtaugh, the character originated by Mel Gibson, »
Rumors of a sequel to "The Goonies" began to surface soon after the flick was first released back in 1985, but fans have waited for more than 30 years with no luck. So will "Goonies 2" ever happen? According to one of its stars, it's only a matter of time.
In an interview with the Tulsa World, Sean Astin, who played Mikey in the flick, didn't provide any concrete details about plans for "Goonies 2." But the actor did say that the film has become such a phenomenon, that it's certainly ripe for a sequel -- in whatever form that may be.
"I have said and will always say, that it's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made," Astin told the World. "The precise makeup of it, I have no idea. Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, »

For a while last year, it looked like the long-rumoured sequel to The Goonies was finally moving forward, with director Richard Donner revealing that many of the original stars of the 80s classic were on board to return. However, since then the project seems to have slipped back into development hell, with Donner backtracking on his earlier comments when announcing an off-Broadway stage production of the original movie earlier this month.
There has of course been talk of a Goonies 2 for the best part of the past thirty years, and according to Sean Astin – who played Mikey in the film – it’s a “100% mortal lock” that the sequel will happen at some point, although he’s unsure about whether he or the rest of the original cast will be back when it does:

The Goonies fans have questions, and Sean Astin kinda-sorta-not-really has some answers! The original star of the 1985 cult classic took to Facebook to address the ongoing rumors about whether or not there's going to be a sequel—and basically, the answer is yes. But nobody knows when that's going to happen. "I have always believed that there will be a Goonies Sequel, because Steven Spielberg told me in 1988 that he wanted to make one," Astin wrote on Facebook. "Richard Donner has said that it is in the works. Warner Brothers is enjoying a very successful merchandising experience with the 'title.' If it gets made in my lifetime, I will root for it, whether I'm in it or »
It feels like a sequel to The Goonies has been in some form of development for as long as I can remember, but according to Sean Astin (who played Mikey in the original), it's not a matter of if a sequel gets made, but rather, when it gets made. To promote his appearance at last week's Wizard World Tulsa, Astin sat down for an interview with TulsaWorld and naturally the possibility of a sequel... Read More »

With the original film celebrating its 30th birthday - how young does that make some of us feel? - work is continuing it seems on The Goonies 2. Director Richard Donner revealed that a follow-up was in the works later year, and whilst progress has not been quick, it is ongoing.
The latest to pour a bit of fuel on the project is Mikey himself, Mr Sean Astin, who told Tulsaworld that "I have said and will always say that it's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made". The article notes that Astin's declared it a '100 percent mortal lock that Goonies 2 will happen'.
"The precise makeup of it, I have no idea", he admitted. "Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, »
News of a Goonies sequel is never far off, and now Sean Astin has added that he is very confident it will happen - eventually.
The actor originally played the part of Michael 'Mikey' Walsh in the 1985 classic, and has admitted that a sequel is "not a question of if, but rather of when".
"I have said and will always say, that it's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made," he told Tulsa World.
"The precise makeup of it, I have no idea. Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, no idea. But it doesn't matter."
It’s time for another updating on the long-gestating development of The Goonies 2 from one of the child cast members who is now all grown up, and surprisingly, they’re not sick of talking about the possibility yet. Sean Astin has been acting for decades, and while fans likely always want to ask him about Rudy […]

We've heard so much about The Goonies 2 over the last two years, that it sounds more like wishful thinking than anything else. But one strong believer in the sequel is Sean Astin. He insists that the movie will happen. No matter what. What he doesn't know is whether or not any of the original cast members will actually return. It's possible they won't. Jeff Cohen, who plays Chunk, already said he's sitting this one out. But the movie has such a strong presence in the pop lexicon, that Sean Astin knows for a fact that Warner Bros. isn't going to let it sit dormant much longer. This despite the fact that it has been exactly 30 years since the original opened in the summer of 1985.
Sean Astin is gearing up to appear at the 2015 Wizard World Tulsa pop culture convention, which happens October 24-25. To promote his appearance, he spoke with TulsaWorld. »
