Top 10 ‘They had it coming’ movie deaths

30 November 2010 8:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

They were smug, evil, or maybe just plain stupid. Here’s our list of the top ten ‘They had it coming’ movie deaths…

"They had it coming. They had it coming. They had it coming all along."

So sang the hosiery-clad vixens of smash hit musical Chicago. Of course, they were referring to the many men they had brutally murdered, whereas I'm responsible for the deaths of no one on this list. But it's an appropriate introduction to a run-down of movie characters who, for one reason or another, really did bring their own cinematic demise on themselves.

Undoubtedly some of the 10 deserved their deaths more than the others. But as I've watched each of them shuffle off this mortal coil, either shaking my head in sorrow or slapping my thigh in triumph, I've been compelled to declare on each occasion, "Well, they asked for that."

The Uma Thurman film so bad it made £88 on opening weekend

Motherhood's disastrous performance at the box office provokes bitter confrontation between producer and UK distributor

It should have been a red carpet event. When just one British cinema was given exclusive permission to launch Uma Thurman's new film earlier this month, the film's producers presumably hoped that exclusivity would create a buzz around the movie. Though limiting the release would obviously limit takings, they must have hoped word of mouth could make it a slow-burning success.

But the tactic backfired catastrophically. Instead of audiences queueing round the block of the Apollo West End in Piccadilly Circus, London, to see the star of Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, they stayed away in record-breaking numbers.

Over its opening weekend, no more than a dozen people went to see Motherhood, a semi-autobiographical account of stressed-out Manhattan parenting written and directed by Katherine Dieckmann. The film made just £88 on the weekend of Friday 5 March. »

DS Icon: Lionel Blair

26 February 2010 3:55 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Lionel Blair has done it all. Mainstream light entertainer, tap dancer, movie star, dependable quiz show stalwart... you name it, he's got the T-shirt. Lionel Blair has done 'cool' and 'credible', appearing alongside The Beatles (A Hard Day's Night) and David Bowie (Absolute Beginners) in big screen outings, but he's also not afraid to get his hands mucky with lowbrow TV shows. Blair's CV reads like a chronological history of platinum UK TV over the last 40 years. Whether he (more) »
