After the much awaited trailer of Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, hit the media, Pooja Bhatt has been fuming over the title of Vipul Shah's film. The actress turned producer claims that the title 'Holiday' has been registered with her for a while now and accuses Vipul of copyright infringement.
Pooja Bhatt had directed a film titled Holiday way back in 2006, starring Dino Morea and Onjolee Nair which was also the remake of the 1987 film Dirty Dancing. The former actress also revealed that she was approached by Vipul Shah for rights of the title but she had rejected the idea. Pooja took to twitter to vent out her anger, as she writes, "First Thank You then Holiday! Akshay Kumar's producers have an affinity for the titles of my films. Gentle Reminder- 'Karma can be a bitch'! Vipul Shah approached me for Holiday & I refused. »

You love to hate them, you hate to love them. There is an irresistible quality to the bad men in film, whose dastardly ways lure you in and keep you rooting for them until the bitter end.
With the remake of 1981’s turbulent Endless Love out this Valentine’s Day, starring Alex Pettyfer as a boy in love with a criminal past, we celebrate some of cinema’s most notorious, sometimes misunderstood scoundrels and their paths to retribution.
Dir. John Hughes, 1985
Spending the majority of John Hughes’ fantastic teen film slumped over a desk and setting things on fire, Judd Nelson’s juvenile Bender is the definition of angst. Criminally minded, troubled and at times malicious, Hughes still urges you not to give up on him, with glimmers of a better person under that grubby coat and a victory that will have you punching the »

When Dirty Dancing came out in 1987, it was a massive hit, grossing nearly $214 million in worldwide box office. But the film starring Patrick Swayze as a dance instructor at a vacation resort was nothing compared to the success of the stage version. In London alone, a Dirty Dancing musical reportedly grossed $500 million. Such prosperity should be the formula for happiness among all involved, but it hasn't been. Behind the curtains, the screenwriter of the original film has been tangoing with the stage version's Australian producer over rights. Last year, an arbitrator ruled largely in favor of the

Today romantic comedies are known for being repetative and full of cliches, but the genre didn't always have that reputation. The 1980's required film makers to reinvent the long-running genre for a new generation.

Original team behind hugely successful film following adventures of Marty McFly is reassembled to create a musical version
Back to the Future, which starred Michael J Fox as Marty McFly, is to become the latest film to be adapted as a West End musical.
Lloyd said he was five when he first saw the film "and I have been a huge fan ever since". Back to the Future is due to open in 2015, the 30th anniversary of the original film – and the same year that McFly visited in Back to the Future II.
The producers said it was not a matter of simply transporting a successful film to the stage. Gale, who co-wrote and co-produced all three Back to the Future »

With the remake on the horizon, the guys over at Screen Junkies take a look back on the 80's classic film that started it all. Let's go back to a simpler time, when action movies were made for adults, but still marketed to children. A time when 'Dirty Dancing' was considered PG-13 and not something you'd show in the middle of a Sunday afternoon on the CW. »

Whether it's a spontaneous bit of dancing or a more choreographed number, movie history is full of great dance moments. And as it happens, the internet is full of supercuts, but the above video and the sequel that followed rises above some of the rest, thanks in large part to great editing, as it looks like the creator really took the time to fit the dance clips together so they line up with the song. Set to Men Without Hats' "Safety Dance," "We Can Dance - Hollywood Movie Dance Tribute" links Road Trip, It's a Wonderful Life, Grease, Mean Girls, Dirty Dancing, Silver Linings Playbook, 500 Days of Summer and quite a few other great movies together through dancing. And it all ends up with the Beetlejuice scene. Beyond the editing, what I really like about Robert Jones' video is that he works some more obscure dance moments into it. »
The Olympic gymnast and Strictly Come Dancing star became the late Patrick Swayze, while Edmondson - host of the ITV2 show - channelled Jennifer Grey to recreate the romantic moment from the 1987 film.
Prior to leaping into Smith's arms, Edmondson claimed that doing the Dirty Dancing lift had been a "lifelong ambition".
The next episode airs tonight (January 23) at 10pm on ITV2. »
The trio were shown Diary Room footage of their fellow housemates nominating them during a house gathering on Sunday (January 19).
The housemates were shocked by the popular Sam being nominated this week, particularly after some pointed comments from Jim were screened to the entire house.
"She doesn't start off any conversations with me. She never really tries to befriend me… I would prefer to spend my time with the others," Jim was shown saying of Sam.
Ollie Locke said of Liz while nominating her: "She doesn't give very much. She keeps herself to herself."
The harshest remarks came from Luisa Zissman while she was nominating Jim, with whom she has clashed on multiple occasions.
"I find him sexist and chauvinistic… He bitches," Luisa complained of Jim.

The housemates were rewarded with alcohol and music last night (January 18) after successfully completing their 'In The Limelight' task.
Lee and Casey have recently made amends after tensions between them grew following their love triangle with evicted housemate Jasmine Waltz.
Jim Davidson went on to grill the pair about their volatile relationship, suggesting that there could still be romance in their future.
"Casey, he could still end up with you," Jim told the 29-year-old.
"Too much has happened," replied Casey, though Lee joked: "All I got to do is put my aftershave on!"
The model insisted: "We are just good friends… we are like friends with benefits!"
Jim said that »
Nearly all the recurring players on the Masterpiece on PBS show Sherlock are based on fictional folks found in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Holmes tales. The most obvious exception? Molly Hooper, the morgue registrar played by actress Louise Brealey. In fact, the show’s creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss at first only intended the Holmes-assisting Hooper to appear in the show’s first episode. But over the years, Molly has become a genuinely beloved character as viewers tracked her unrequited crush on Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular sleuth and her predictably doomed romance with Andrew Scott’s villainous Moriarty. »

Spoof mini-series The Spoils of Babylon is coming soon, so what finer time to tip our hats to the epic, emotional heavyweight classics of the genre from the 70s and 80s?
This Saturday sees the start of star-studded parody The Spoils of Babylon on Fox, in which Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Tim Robbins and Tobey Maguire take aim at the epic (and epically cheesy) American mini-series of the late 70s and early 80s. In preparation, here's our guide to six of the best original shows. (Note: yes, Roots is a 70s mini-series, but it's also a serious drama and too good for inclusion here.)
Rich Man, Poor Man (1976)
The daddy of them all. This adaptation of Irwin Shaw's bestseller told the tale of two opposite (and opposed) brothers, good boy Rudy (Peter Strauss) and bad boy Tom (a show-stopping Nick Nolte). There had been other mini-series before Rich Man, »

The Ronettes - 'Be My Baby' (Mean Streets)
Nemi, who was married to the 'Dirty Dancing' star for 34 years, has gotten engaged to jeweller Albert DePrisco, four years after her former husband's death from pancreatic cancer, the Daily Express reported.
Nemi, who met DePrisco through common friends, said that he is a wonderful man and she said yes at once.
She added that she is really grateful for the type of connection she had with Swayze, and that a part of her believes that she will see him again but she also knows that she needs to go on until. »

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are having the time of their lives, just like Johnny and Baby. The engaged couple reenacted the iconic scene from Dirty Dancing while on vacation in Los, Cabos Mexico on Thursday, Jan. 2. The Maroon 5 frontman lifted the Victoria's Secret supermodel while the duo enjoyed some quality pool time in the sunshine. Judging by the 24-year-old beauty's elation as her beau hoisted her in the air, it seems like nobody puts Behati in a corner. Prinsloo flaunted her enviable body in a black top and red, yellow and green bikini bottoms, while Levine showed off his toned abs and tattoos in a black swim trunks.
