The most popular poster I’ve posted on my Movie Poster of the Day Tumblr in the past quarter—with over 1,000 likes and reblogs—has been this rarity that popped up at Posteritati this Spring. A British Double Crown (10" shorter than a one sheet) for a 24 minute documentary about the experimental music genius Brian Eno, made in 1973 at the start of his post-Roxy solo career, the poster’s popularity is no doubt due as much to the reverence Eno is held in as to its graphic design. But it is still a terrific poster, making simple yet brilliant use of two color printing and showcasing a multitude of Enos in all his glam rock glory. The text in the corner credits Blue Egg Printing and Design Ltd. and if anyone knows anything more about that company I’d love to hear about it. »

Red Oaks seems like it could definitely be my type of jam. A comedy set in 1985 at a country club in New Jersey? This has enough shades of Caddyshack to pique my interest. Of course it doesn't hurt that the show will be produced by Steven Soderbergh or that the pilot will be directed by David Gordon Green (Eastbound & Down). Red Oaks is gearing up to shoot as a pilot for Amazon (who are still implementing their voting policy when it comes to determining what gets picked up to series). And now the cast has been announced. Red Oaks stars Craig Roberts (Submarine) as David Myers, a college student who’s an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey in 1985. Paul Reiser (Mad About You), Richard Kind (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Oliver Cooper (Californication), Gage Golightly (MTV’s Teen Wolf) and »

The '80s are coming back, sorta, with the help of Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh and "Dirty Dancing" actress Jennifer Grey. The iconic '80s star is joining Paul Reiser, Craig Roberts, Richard Kind and Oliver Cooper in "Red Oaks," a new Amazon pilot that will be programmed as part of the nascent streaming service's third pilot season. Helming the first episode will be filmmaker David Gordon Green ("Pineapple Express," "Eastbound & Down"), who's set to direct from a script by Gregory Jacobs ("The Knick") and Joe Gangemi ("Eliza Graves"). “Greg Jacobs told me this idea on the set of 'Behind the Candelabra' and I told him it was great and that he should start working on it immediately,” said executive-producer Soderbergh in a statement. “Then, while we were on the set of 'The Knick' he gave me the script he wrote with Joe Gangemi and I said, »

Paul Reiser ("Aliens"), Richard Kind ("Luck"), Jennifer Grey ("Dirty Dancing") and Oliver Cooper ("Californication") also star. The project will be one of several pilots that make up Amazon's third pilot season.
Customers will watch and give feedback on it - after that it will be determined whether to pick it up to series. Other pilots it will compete with include the Whit Stillman-produced "The Cosmopolitans," Marc Forster-produced "Hand of God," the Shaun Cassidy-produced "Hysteria," and the Sarah Chalke comedy"Really."

David Gordon Green is set to direct the pilot episode of "Red Oaks" for Amazon with Steven Soderbergh producing. The show is set in 1985, and features college student David Myers (Craig Roberts pictured) who is both reeling from his father's heart attack and conflicted about what major to declare in the fall. Myers gets a summer job as an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey and while there, he meets a colorful cast of misfit co-workers and wealthy club members including an alluring art student named "Skye" (Alexandra Socha) and her corporate raider father "Getty" (Paul Reiser). A coming-of-age comedy set in the "go-go" 80s that is equal parts hijinks and heartfelt, Red Oaks is about enjoying a last hurrah before summer comes to an end--and the future begins. Richard Kind ("Spin City"), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing) and Oliver Cooper (Runner Runner) co-star »

Clearly, “retirement” means something else in Soderberghland.
Though the Academy Award-winning director has stuck to his promise to stop directing feature films since 2012 (when he shot Behind the Candelabra), Soderbergh has hardly stopped making art in the intervening years. Recent projects include directing Cinemax’s 10-episode period drama The Knick (premiering this summer), helming an Off-Broadway play starring Chloe Grace Moretz, editing together a mashup of Hitchcock’s Psycho and Gus Van Sant’s Psycho, executive producing a TV series based on his 2009 indie film The Girlfriend Experience for Starz—and, now, overseeing another TV show, this time for Amazon. »

The Wire a rumor roundup on Doctor Strange and what's going on
The Movie Scene takes a different tack on those "halfway mark" lists that are starting round the web, merely ranking the films that were new to him this year on DVD... classics mixed with brand new things. I've never been able to compare different eras well in terms of "rank" - give me year to year contests or decade lists but otherwise... too tough!

The dance culture has seen an explosion of cinematic adaptations in recent years. There was Step Up in 2006 - the dan-com that launched the career of one Channing Tatum; MTV-funded urban success Save the Last Dance in 2001; and everyones favourite rags-to-Rojo story Billy Elliot in 2000. Going further back, classics such as Footloose (starring Kevin Bacon. Yes, believe it or not he used to appear in films), Dirty Dancing and Saturday Night Fever slide into shot, while one could even argue the suitability of Gene Kelly’s infamous musical number Singin' in the Rain...although for the purpose of this review, we’ll stick with dance as the main focus as opposed to an entertaining side-plot.
However, Cuban Fury is a beast like no other. While it may tap along to a similar beat, it’s underlying study is of a comical nature. Viewers are presented with 98 minutes of unadulterated ‘slapstick »
Jersey Boys is a classic rags to riches story of four boys from Jersey who paved the way to fame and fortune with their singing voices.
This week, Clint Eastwood directs the big screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Jersey Boys. The film follows the rise and fall of 1960s singer Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the group who brought us classic hits like “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” and several other songs that have populated some of our favourite movie soundtracks like Grease and Dirty Dancing.
Hollywood has long looked to The Great White Way for inspiration, diving into the musicals and plays that touch down on and off-Broadway.

Mooted as the “Star Wars on the 80s” by the outlandish producing team of Golan and Globus at Cannon Films, 1987′s Masters of the Universe may well have worked under different circumstances. With Rocky IV star Dolph Lundgren in the lead, and flanked by Frost/Nixon’s Frank Langella, future Friends’ star Courtney Cox, Meg Foster and 80’s stalwart James Tolkan, the first attempt to bring He-Man to the big screen certainly had some promising ingredients.
Sadly, the finished product annoyed more than it pleased. Masters of the Universe is today considered a flop by most in film circles, grossing just $17 million in a year that saw Three Man and a Baby, Fatal Attraction, Beverly Hills Cop 2 and Dirty Dancing strike it rich. But what many don’t know is how much a struggle Masters was to make for its director Gary Goddard (who never directed a feature »

Secret Cinema has announced plans to stage Back to the Future live in London.
The town of Hill Valley will be built for the event in a secret London location, so audiences can become citizens living between 1955 and 1985.
There will be lots of audience participation, with some members able to use a time-machine to be 'transported' into another existence, as well as secret alleys and passageways that will take fans to 1985 and 2015.
The event will be split into two halves - the first allowing audiences to interact in Hill Valley, and the second being a screening of Back to the Future with surprise elements.
A battle of the bands contest will also determine what band will play on stage each night, as well as a secret high profile band headlining. An 'Enchantment under the Sea' prom after party will also be held at a venue near the secret location.
The first rule of Secret Cinema: you do not talk about Secret Cinema. Unless it's in the past. Have you heard of Secret Cinema before? Based out of London, Secret Cinema is an incredible cinematic event group that hosts special one-off events/screenings with themed experiences. In the past they've held events for Dirty Dancing and Ghostbusters, but this time they're focusing on Robert Zemeckis' classic Back to the Future. The group just announced their ticket sales dates for a Back to the Future event, subtitled "The Live Cinema Experience" with the tagline: "Hill Valley, California comes to a Secret London Location". Yes indeed, apparently they are actually rebuilding Hill Valley for this event, or so the London Evening Standard says. They're going all out for this one, and it sounds like it's going to be worth flying over for. Here's the ticket info listed on their site for »
