We suppose it's fitting, with the Academy Awards airing Sunday, that TV shows should take a back seat and movies should drive the week.
There's only one lone newcomer braving the next seven days of movie mania highway by premiering tonight, Friday, February 25th at 10:00pm. Fans of The Inbetweeners can catch Will (Simon Bird), this time as Adam, one of two sons in the Goodman family in Friday Night Dinner on Channel 4. The first episode is entitled The Sofabed, with Tamsin Geig, as Mum, playing a decidedly different role to her recent work in Episodes (which we reviewed here), and the rest of the cast round out what could be a nice plate of laughs on Friday nights. Well, for six Friday nights, »
Full Moon High (Original Release Date: 27 February 1981?)
I had some difficulty figuring out exactly when this one came out. The date above was one of the ones I found. Wikipedia says 7 October, and some other places give other dates. After a little digging, it looks like 27 February may have been the day the film was printed. A New York Times article from 30 August mentions it will be coming out soon, so the 7 October release date looks more and more like the right one. I decided to go ahead and review it early, since I was eager to see it, and since the other movie I wanted to review this Thursday didn’t get to me on time.
1981 was a banner year for wolf movies. Of the four wolf-themed major releases -- An American Werewolf in London, The Howling, and Wolfen being the other three -- Full Moon High is probably the least well-known. »

Take Me Home Tonight, Topher Grace’s ode to the ’80s, doesn’t hit theaters until March 4, but the actor is already hard at work promoting it. He co-conceived the story about a directionless MIT graduate who works at Suncoast Video in the mall and gets a second chance with his unrequited his school crush (Teresa Palmer) when she invites him to an end-of-summer party. The cast, which originally shot the film in 2007 (it’s how Anna Faris met her husband, Chris Pratt), has reunited recently to star in a viral music video, Atomic Tom’s cover of The Human League »

We wave goodbye to a too short run of a favourite show and welcome back some older programming for a return visit to our TV sets over the next seven days in tellyland.
It feels like it just began, but Hustle series 7 ends tonight, Friday, February 18th at 9:00pm on BBC1. Albert is featured heavily, and worries are pressing weightily on the eldest of the group of cons with hearts. The series finale sees them helping a pal who's rubbed the Mafia the wrong way. We wouldn't rub the Mafia at all, frankly. But the damage has been done and we'll see if the Hustle crew can make repairs. We'll have a review of the finale as soon as possible.

Hey! Remember the '80s? Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler and Teresa Palmer do. They're the cast of the upcoming comedy Take Me Home Tonight, which opens March 4 and is set in 1988 . As part of the viral marketing campaign for the film, they've created a music video that features the whole cast, a ton of cameos and references/reenactments of upwards of 50 classic Eighties movies, all in the course of four minutes. While some of the references are super obvious - Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, etc. - it's actually pretty fun to watch and pick out a few of the less obvious ones. Check out the video after the jump. Thanks to Cinema Blend  for the heads up on the video. I began to go through and note all of the movies that are referenced, then I realized our good friends at Cinema Blend  already did that: Alien, »

Everyone looks a little too good in this party film set in 1988 called, "Take Me Home Tonight" -- like the wardrobe was designed not around what people were wearing in 80's, but what people were wearing in films in the 80's. I've only seen the trailer though, so maybe there are some hideous paisley shirts and pleated jeans somewhere in this new creation by "That '70s Show" star, Topher Grace.
If you've been missing him ("Predators" doesn't count) here's your chance to get a little dose of Eric Forman. It seems as if we've found the same character, just at the end of the following decade, with the same dry humor.
The drugs have changed a bit, and rumor is that epic amounts of blow get inhaled. The music has all changed too, and some radical tracks from the decade get prime placement in this last "night of unbridled youth" blow out. »

Taylor Lautner turns 19 on Friday (Feb. 11, 2011) and in honor of our undying love for him, we've compiled a list of the top 10 reasons why it's perfectly acceptable for females everywhere to get their puma (or cougar) on.
It takes a special kind of person to steal the hearts of tweens and grown women alike, and Lautner has done it flawlessly. As the "Twilight" franchise comes to a close, we are anxiously awaiting his next move and seeing what life after Jacob Black holds for the young actor.
He can be seen next in the thriller "Abduction," due out in September.
Go ahead, stare at the photo a little longer. We won't judge. It is a special occasion, after all.
Top 10 reasons it's perfectly acceptable to love Taylor if you're not a teen:
1. The smile: Whether it's full wattage or his sexy half smile, there's no shame in melting a little »
It has taken awhile for Take Me Home Tonight, shot in early 2007, to see a theatrical release, but it is finally happening next month. The often hilarious comedy revels in its 1980′s nostalgic tone. This is not a parody film, rather one that embraces every aspect of those films you love. What better way to celebrate than actually re-enact all those films?
The cast of Tonight threw a crazy party and did just that. Check out the video below via Cinema Blend and thanks to Josh Tyler over there, a list of all the references spotted. The cast, most captured at the party, Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, Chris Pratt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Lucy Punch, Michael Ian Black, and Demetri Martin.

“I’ve fancied her since I was 10!” These were words of Simon Pegg referring to his co star Sigourney Weaver, who has had more than her fair share of alien encounters, when we talked to him last night at the Leicester square premiere of Paul.
Held at the Empire Cinema, the purple carpeted event greeted Simon, Nick Frost, Paul director Greg Mottola, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver and other stars from the flick who ushered in the World premiere event.
Paul is the story about two British ‘geeky-as-they come’ comic convention nerds (Gawd bless ‘em!) who come across an alien named Paul whilst they are on a tour of the Us mid-west. Paul, who is evading capture by the Government, is voiced by Seth Rogen who does a great job as the wide eyed extra terrestrial. You can read our full review of the movie here.
The premiere atmosphere was pleasant but thin, »

Heh, you know what would be cool? If Beavis and Butt-Head, after more than 13 years off the air, made a comeback.
MTV confirmed months of rumors along those lines at its Tuesday upfront presentation, announcing that the animated, music-video mocking potty mouths will return in a rebooted series premiering… well, the network didn’t get into specifics. Yet. I just wanna know who’s gonna break it to the boys that no one, and certainly barely MTV, airs music videos anymore.

MTV is bringing back the animated series Beavis and Butt-Head that aired on the network from 1993-1997 and centered on two heavy-metal music fans riffing on videos, trying to score with girls and generally just slacking off.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, show creator Mike Judge, who voiced the roles of both title characters, is planning to bring back the show later this year.
In addition, the network confirmed that its new Teen Wolf series will debut June 5. »

We’ve not heard anything about the TV remake of classic Michael J. Fox movie, Teen Wolf for quite a while now but MTV (via our friend Toby Wilkins who directed some of the episodes) have just announced the series will air on June 5th in the Us straight after the MTV Movie Awards.
Adam posted the trailer for the series a while ago which you can see here. The TV series stars Linden Ashby, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed, Tyler Posey, Colton Haynes, Holland Roden, Robert Pralgo, Jr Bourne and Sharon Morris.
Synopsis: “Teen Wolf,” stars Tyler Posey (“Maid in Manhattan,” “Brothers and Sisters”), as the newly bitten werewolf, ‘Scott McCall,’ Dylan O’Brien as his best friend ‘Stiles,’ Crystal Reed as the mysterious new girl in town, ‘Allison,’ and Tyler Hoechlin (“Road to Perdition,” “7th Heaven”) as the older and possibly quite dangerous werewolf, ‘Derek Hale.’ Always an outsider and often unnoticed, »

Attending the MTV upfront presentation in New York, Tim Stack reports that the network just announced that Beavis & Butt-Head will indeed make its triumphant return to the network. The announcement confirms previous online reports, some from creator Mike Judge himself, that MTV was working on a return of the hit series.

Simon Pegg must be having the time of his life – he is truly a testament to fanboys everywhere. Following the seminal nerd-fest Spaced he has scored roles in Doctor Who and Star Trek, and even kick-started the current zombie revival with the excellent Shaun of the Dead. There’s no doubt about it, the Peggster is living the dream. And now he brings us Paul (co-written and starring best-bud Nick Frost), a charming little alien movie that pays great homage to the pop-culture that has so far defined his career – a feature that could make or break this film for you…
Pegg and Frost’s first collaboration away from director Edgar Wright may have left some nervous – was it possible that Wright’s quick-witted eye held the key to their previous success? Rest easy, because Paul is very good. In fact, it’s great. But there is something different about it, »

Following the twisted delights of Triangle British horror maestro Christopher Smith (Creep, Severance, Black Death) has announced he would like to bring his own unique spin to the werewolf film. Tentatively titled Bitch one of his next projects is to be an exclusively female Werewolf movie.
Of course the female lycanthrope film is not an entirely new concept. Back in 2000 Ginger Snaps was an original ‘werewolf as puberty metaphor’ grisly tale that had Goth girls turn nasty and decidedly hairy (urh!) following a severe bite in the woods.
Smith commented that his favourite werewolf movie The Howling had “the greatest half hour in the genre” due to its intensely ambiguous opening and that this is a certain quality he would like to replicate in his own lycanthropic tale. But with only a few cast iron successes in the genre’s 70 year plus history the director will want to tread with »

2nd Update: Two remakes of British series were off to a promising start last night. The series premiere of MTV's Skins averaged 3.3 million viewers, 2.7 million of them (3.4 rating) in the 12-34 demographic. Skins, which aired at 10 Pm, drew the most 12-34 viewers for a series launch on MTV ever and a higher 12-34 rating than the premieres of such young-skewing scripted series as ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars (2.2 rating) and The Secret Life of the American Teenager (2.3 rating). But then they didn't have the hottest cable reality show as a lead-in. Skins, a remake of the popular British series, followed a special original Jersey Shore, which logged 7.7 million viewers and a 7.6 rating in persons 12-34. Next on the scripted side for MTV is the return of comedy The Hard Times of Rj Berger and the premiere of Teen Wolf. Meanwhile, the debut of Syfy's Being Human averaged 2 million viewers at 9 Pm. »
