H. Jon Benjamin makes a crazy Kenny Loggins Kickstarter even crazier

27 August 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Born in Everett, Washington, the American recording artist Kenneth Clark “Kenny” Loggins spent most of the 1980s creating music that became synonymous with the films they were featured in, like “Footloose” from Footloose or “Danger Zone” from Top Gun. He doesn’t really do this anymore, but he still makes music: This month, a Kickstarter for Loggins and his band, Blue Sky Riders, met its funding goal for a new studio album.

One of the reward milestones for supporters who would donate an undisclosed amount of more than $10,000 (the actual amount would vary based on logistics) was a private concert. »

Movie Moments: Proclamations of Love through the Medium of Song

21 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

God Help the Girl is a tale of love and despair through the medium of song and dance, starring Emily Brown and Olly Alexander. Written and directed by Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, the film in part follows Alexander’s bewitched James and his adoration of Eve (Browning,) a troubled, medicated songwriter.

To celebrate the film’s release we take a look at some of the best proclamations of love via the magical form of song in cinema.

Pretty in Pink: Try a Little Tenderness Dir. Howard Deutch, 1986

Admittedly this sequence is mimed, but mimed to Otis Redding and with such panache that Jon Cryer’s Duckie is easily forgiven. Besotted with his best friend and sadly not as bold with his feelings as he is with his sense of fashion, Duckie’s extravagant routine is as a means of impressing his audience; a bewildered Andie (Molly Ringwald)and the quietly impressed Iona. »

GTA Online Flight School Update has landed

18 August 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The next update for GTA Online is coming, and will be available by the time you read this...

Grand Theft Auto Online has received another new update from Rockstar, this time with airborne acrobatics, and Top Gun-style cheese as the focus. The San Andreas Flight School Update adds in a set of new vehicles, including a new stunt jet, Mig-style fighter, and speedy helicopter, along with new cars and a host of country flag-themed parachutes.

Along with the new content comes a couple of tweaks to the game. This includes larger payouts for harder missions, and the addition of GTA$ bonus payouts for playing missions with others. Presumably, this is to promote more co-operative play, and less repetition of easier missions.

Have a look at the trailer below, and download the update by signing on to GTA Online.

London — Icon Film Distribution has acquired U.K. rights to Tom Tykwer’s comedic drama “A Hologram for the King,” which stars Tom Hanks.

101 better titles for 'Terminator: Genisys'

6 August 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

So the new Terminator movie has an official title. And it’s… interesting. Hey, listen: Book, cover, don’t judge, I get it. Maybe this time next year we’ll all be rocking Genisys T-shirts. Maybe we’ll just start spelling “genesis” as “genisys,” sort of like how you can spell it “judgment” or “judgement.” Inglourious Basterds is great, and that has two misspellings!

Still, let’s pretend for argument’s sake that Terminator: Genisys looks like the title of the fanfic spin-off you wrote back in second grade where Terminator meets Scarface and they both fight Darth Vader to save Princess Toadstool. »

Planes 2: Fire and Rescue Review

5 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Dusty Crophopper is back for a brand new adventure, and this time it’s a blockbuster. Faced with the dual threats of an early end to his racing career and Propwash Junction’s closure, Dusty and his ailing torque gauge fly west to Piston Peak National Park to train as a firefighter. Thunderclouds recall military aircraft as towns and valleys with ingenious engine details unfurl below him and beckon him on his way. Toby Wilson and team’s sumptuous animation is as characterful and joyous as the tiny craft ought to be. Drawing heavily on Top Gun themes of arrogance, loss and redemption, this summer holiday release aims high but stalls before breaking cloud cover.

On arrival at the Air Attack Base Dusty (Dane Cook) tries his best to assimilate with the team. However, the resentment of his trainer Blade Ranger (Ed Harris sounding pleasingly like Billy Bob Thornton) coupled »

Secret Cinema cancels Bttf again

25 July 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Event cinema organiser forced to cancel second consecutive night.

Secret Cinema, the immersive cinema event company, has cancelled the second consecutive night of its latest production, Back To The Future.

Its opening night was canned just a few hours before the show was set to begin in east London yesterday evening, disappointing around 3,500 ticketholders - each having paid £53.50. A preview night on Wednesday had also failed to go ahead.

As seemingly appropriate lightning storms raged over London, Secret Cinema has again been forced to pull the plug on its event, which is due to run over 24 nights until August 31.

In a fresh statement, just two hours before the production was set to begin, the organisation said: “Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel tonight’s performance.

“Secret Cinema has been running safe arts events for 10 years and on this occasion we have come across a number of difficult issues. As you can »

“Into the weenie mobile, weenie man away!”

Okay, you have a big decision to make this weekend: do you seen Return Of The Living Dead at midnight at The Hi-Pointe Friday and Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie at The Tivoli midnight on Saturday, or do you see Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie at The Tivoli midnight Friday and Return Of The Living Dead at midnight at The Hi-Pointe on Saturday? Either way, there’s a couple of fun midnight shows in St. Louis this weekend (read my take on the Return Of The Living Dead screening Here)

Exclusive On Set Interview: Scott Derrickson - Deliver Us From Evil

3 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Scott Derrickson, as evidenced by this interview, is one of the most thoughtful, sure-handed American directors the genre has working in the field today. If you’re not convinced of that after Sinister alone, then Deliver Us From Evil just might make you a believer.

Inspired by the true events of officer Ralph Sarchie and his dealings with the occult and assistance with actual exorcisms in some of the darkest corners of New York City, Derrickson and company will do their worst in trying to convince us that these occurrences are based in fact.

In doing so, Derrickson will also probably wind up scaring the crap out of you.

When we spoke to Derrickson on set in the South Bronx back in July of 2013, his usual soft, inviting demeanor was still on full display even though he was neck deep in the minute-to-minute stress of shooting a nuanced film that »

Tuesday Top Ten: Unconventional Fourth of July Movie Selections

1 July 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here with this week's Tuesday Top Ten. Wikipedia tells this Australian that the Fourth of July, Independence Day, is a day usually celebrated with “fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions and political speeches and ceremonies.” Curious that they don’t include movies since, at least since 1991 when James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day premiered to one of the then biggest opening weekends of all time, the big July 4th blockbuster is an annual trend with the likes of Independence Day, the Transformers franchise, Superman Returns and seemingly anything starring Will Smith.

With the holiday this Friday, most lists of movies to watch over the long holiday weekend will feature masculine, almost brutish titles that celebrate America’s achievements in war and rah-rah bravura (The Patriot, Saving Private Ryan, Top Gun) or the coming of age of a nation and its people in almost gooey fashion (Field of Dreams, »
