Surprisingly Good Horror Movies Written by Actors

10 October 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

More than 40 years ago, Gene Wilder starred in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein (1974), which merrily mocked classic horror movies. It became a huge smash and earned an Academy Award nomination for the screenplay by Wilder and Brooks. It was also a reminder that actors sometimes have unexpected literary talents. Wilder quickly turned to directing as well, and while he only returned to horror once more with Haunted Honeymoon, he set an example for actors to come; namely, that their take on...

New Release Date for Gene Wilder’s Haunted Honeymoon Blu-ray

1 September 2016 4:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Earlier this week, we lost one of the world's great sources of laughter, joy, and creative wonder with the passing of Gene Wilder. While Wilder and his endearing benevolence will be sorely missed, his comedic genius will live on through his work, including 1986's Haunted Honeymoon, which will now be released on Blu-ray by Kino Lorber a bit sooner than originally expected.

Blu-ray.com reports that Kino Lorber will release their Haunted Honeymoon Blu-ray on September 6th, bumping it up from its initially scheduled September 27th debut.

Wilder co-wrote, directed, and starred in Haunted Honeymoon alongside his wife, the late, great Gilda Radner. According to Amazon, the special features for the Blu-ray will include trailers, and you can view the cover art and synopsis below.

In addition to Haunted Honeymoon, Kino Lorber has also moved the Blu-ray release of another Gene Wilder film, The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother, »

Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner's Tragic, Heart-Crushingly Beautiful Love Story

30 August 2016 9:47 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

This week, an icon from movies, comedy, and many of our childhoods passed away: Gene Wilder, the original Willy Wonka, died at age 83 from complications of Alzheimer's. The loss, like so many beloved actors, was felt deeply by many, but when I heard the news, I had a second, happy thought after the initial grief-filled surprise: he's with Gilda now. Gilda Radner was Gene Wilder's third wife - she was married to someone else when they met, and he would marry after her death. On paper, it sounds like the kind of Hollywood marriage you'd read about in every tabloid today - they were married to others before their union and only had a few years of marriage; nothing incredible-sounding. But Gene and Gilda had so much more than a Hollywood marriage; theirs was the meeting of two comic geniuses, of course, but also, the kind of romance that's »

Iconic Comic Actor Gene Wilder Dies at Age 83

30 August 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The sad news for fans of film comedy spread like wildfire earlier this week. Here’s the opening paragraph facts from the New York Times:

Gene Wilder, who established himself as one of America’s foremost comic actors with his delightfully neurotic performances in three films directed by Mel Brooks; his eccentric star turn in the family classic “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”; and his winning chemistry with Richard Pryor in the box-office smash “Stir Crazy,” died early Monday morning at his home in Stamford, Conn. He was 83.

A nephew, the filmmaker Jordan Walker-Pearlman, confirmed his death in a statement, saying the cause was complications of Alzheimer’s disease.

Mr. Wilder’s rule for comedy was simple: Don’t try to make it funny; try to make it real. “I’m an actor, not a clown,” he said more than once.

And what an actor. That’s from the »

Gene Wilder was so much more than his pitch-perfect work as Willy Wonka

29 August 2016 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What makes a great actor great? When I watch a performance, there are certain things I look for, and the biggest of those things is whether or not the actor is making choices about their work. There are plenty of actors who get through a scene just fine and who deliver their lines nicely and who never ever connect beyond that for me because it doesn’t feel like they’re bringing anything to the process aside from their physical presence. There are certain actors, though, who I am immediately drawn to because you can see how they’re taking the raw material of the script and they’re putting it through their personal filter so that the end result is something the writer couldn’t have imagined, that the director couldn’t have asked for, and that the actor never would have reached on his own. Gene Wilder was one of those actors, »

Gene Wilder Has Passed Away

29 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

He brought smiles, laughter, and merry memories to multiple generations, and although his legacy will live on, it is with great sadness that we share the news that Gene Wilder has passed away at the age of 83.

Multiple sources, including THR, report that Wilder died at his home in Stamford, Conn. on Sunday. After fighting Alzheimer’s Disease over the past several years, he passed away while listening to Ella Fitzgerald’s cover of “Somewhere over the Rainbow.”

A heartfelt statement (via Variety) by Wilder’s nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, reveals that his uncle lived comfortably and happily among his loved ones in his final years:

“The decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition wasn’t vanity, but more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka,” would not have to be then exposed to an adult referencing »

Gene Wilder, Star of Willy Wonka, Passes Away at 83

29 August 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The comedy world has lost another beloved performer, in a year that has seemed to claim more legends than most years. The iconic Gene Wilder passed away earlier today, at the age of 83, at his home in Stamford, Connecticut. His nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, revealed that the actor died due to complications from Alzheimer's disease.

The actor was born Jerome Silberman on June 11, 1943 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Jeanne (Baer) and William J. Silberman, who worked as a manufacturer of miniature whiskey and beer bottles. He made his professional acting debut in the 1961 off Broadway adaptation of Roots, before making his Broadway debut later that year in The Complaisant Lover. He won the Clement Derwent Award that year as the most promising newcomer. He also starred in the 1963 play Mother Courage and Her Children, alongside Anne Bancroft, who would become Mel Brooks' wife, which would change his life forever.

David Huddleston, Acclaimed Character Actor, Dead At Age 85

5 August 2016 10:41 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Huddleston and John Wayne in Howard Hawks' 1970 Western "Rio Lobo".

By Lee Pfeiffer

Like many character actors, David Huddleston's name may not be familiar to movie fans- but they certainly would recognize him, especially if they are retro film fans. Huddleston, who this week at age 85, was a star of stage and screen. He  began making feature films in the 1960s and became steadily employed in both low-budget and major Hollywood productions, generally playing  folksy, good old boy Southern characters, though he did snag the title role in the 1985 Salkind production of "Santa Claus" as well as the 1998 Coen Brothers cult classic "The Big Lebowski". He scored with audiences for his performance as the foul-mouthed town dignitary in Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles" and appeared in "Capricorn One", 'Smokey and the Bandit II", "Haunted Honeymoon" and two films with John Wayne: Howard Hawks' "Rio Lobo »

Class of 1986: Six Horror & Sci-Fi Movies Released in 1986 That Deserve More Love

10 July 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When it comes to horror and sci-fi movies from 1986, there are several milestone titles that always come to mind first: Aliens, The Fly, Blue Velvet, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, Manhunter, Poltergeist II: The Other Side, or even Psycho III, just to name a few. But like any great year of cinema, there are always a few underrated gems that get overshadowed along the way and should receive a little extra love. Here are six films from 1986 that I think deserve to be on every genre fan’s radar:

F/X: A movie about a special effects artist who gets mixed up in a government conspiracy, at a time when practical effects were in their heyday? Yes, please. F/X isn’t a film I hear a ton of folks talk about, but it has been on cable a lot lately, which means I’ve spent a few nights revisiting it, »

"That Justin Theroux guy - where do I know him from?" Depending on whom you ask, you could get a great many answers. Of course, he's the husband of Jennifer Aniston, but he's had a string of notable acting roles too. He could be that guy from The Leftovers, the actor who played the hapless director character in Mulholland Drive, Leslie Knope's short-lived boyfriend on Parks and Recreation, or even the bad guy from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. However, Theroux is also a screenwriter, and he's credited with a handful of major films that casual movie-goers might not associate with him. »
