This just in from our friends at Bloody Disgusting: Warner Bros. has apparently abandoned a much-hyped plan to produce a new Gremlins sequel (23 years after Gremlins 2: The New Batch left theaters) in favor of a straight-up remake of the original Steven Spielberg/Joe Dante classic. Yes, you read that right; not even the adorable Gizmo and his demonic spawn are safe from the mighty studio remake machine. According to Warner, Seth Grahame-Smith, best known as the author of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and screenwriter on Tim Burton's Dark Shadows (he's also working on the script for a pending Beetlejuice sequel), is lined up to co-produce the remake with David Katzenberg, but it's yet to be confirmed whether he will be writing the script. We're not sure where this might be going, but rest assured there's more news to come, so get ready »

There's been talk of a remake of Gremlins for some time now, and it sounds like this project is now ten steps closer to happening. Read on for the latest on the remake, and pray this doesn't turn into a G-rated crapfest!
According to Bloody Disgusting, Warner Bros. is officially moving ahead with a remake of Amblin’s 1984 Gremlins instead of the long talked about sequel. The hunt is on for a director, and Seth Grahame-Smith has been tapped to produce alongside David Katzenberg. Smith wrote Dark Shadows for Tim Burton and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for Fox. He recently completed his draft for the studio’s next Beetlejuice flick.

Remember all that buzz about a Gremlins reboot from not too long ago? It’s one step closer to reality with today’s revelation that Warner Bros. has selected a producer and charged him with the task of bringing Gizmo back to the big screen. Bloody-Disgusting reveals that Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe Seth Grahame-Smith has been brought aboard to make sure that someone manages to feed the Mogwi after midnight. This is the latest in a series of fairly high profile projects boasting Grahame-Smith’s involvement. He recently finished a draft of the screenplay for the remake of Tim Burton’s beloved Beetlejuice. There’s currently no word as to whether or not Grahame-Smith will also pen a script for the Gremlins reboot, but it would make sense given...

Let's forget the fact that neither of these starlets was alive when the original Beetlejuice suit was born. Because both Miley Cyrus and Willow Smith have recently stepped out in Chanel's modern version of Michael Keaton's famous costume. The former Hannah Montana star gets credit for wearing it first and in a far more simplistic style. Miley added almost no accessories except a simple gold necklace. Willow, on the other hand, wore the ensemble second but made her own with a black cropped jacket, porkpie hat and black choker. We're #TeamMiley on this one. Though we have to state, for the record, that we don't love the look on either. What's your take? »
Winona Ryder has admitted that she does not know if she could handle becoming an actress now.
"I have to say, I really wonder if I would become an actress if I was their age now," she said. "I've only seen part of Twilight, but I've seen their other work and they're both super talented.
"I don't know how they do it, though, in just trying to maintain some degree of a personal life and privacy."
Ryder continued: "Look, this is a story in Interview, so I do get how people complaining about privacy when they're actually doing very public things can come across as a bit hypocritical.
"But I do feel so lucky that I got to get in »
Also in today’s First Dibs: Which famous comedian ragged on Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala dress? Winona Ryder opens up about her days as a teen star, and the upcoming release of Ender’s Game is generating new buzz.
Tiger Woods may have played it cool while on the red carpet at Monday’s Met Gala, but he hit the streets (and seemingly the bottle) pretty hard afterward. The golf star reportedly embarrassed girlfriend Lindsey Vonn with his drunken antics, culminating in him tripping on a flight of stairs as the couple left an afterparty. [Daily Mail] And for more post-Met naughtiness, Robin Williams took to Twitter to give his thoughts on Kim K’s floral print dress. Um, apparently, he thinks Mrs. Doubtfire rocked it better. Burn. [Bossip] Winona Ryder reveals that she was once told she wasn’t pretty enough to be an actress. Seriously, could we really imagine anyone »

Ryder reflected on Beetlejuice with The Huffington Post, and admitted she is flattered that the movie is so well-loved by fans.
"It's weird because I still feel, weirdly, very close to it. I just got an email from Tim [Burton]," she revealed. "I think there's a nostalgia going on for that era, or something.
"But I do feel like Lydia, that character, really, if I hadn't done that role, I don't think I would have ended up an actress."
The actress continued: "I didn't have that look at that time. So, doing that and then Heathers right afterwards. »
But let's be real here: if you were Winona Ryder, you'd appreciate yourself too, right? Maybe not all the bad parts, but your movies? Oh man, if you were Winona Ryder, you would love your movies.And we know that because Winona Ryder, the real one, has confirmed it. Here's what she said when asked if she watches her movies when they come on TV:“Well, yeah! Now they’re considered golden oldies, which is awesome. I was watching Little Women recently, and I didn’t want to get up for fear of missing something. And Heathers is like my own Rocky Horror Picture Show; I recite the lines when it’s on. It may seem odd, but I think it’s because they’re really good movies.”See, if this kind of quote came from someone else -- like, say, if Anne Hathaway said this -- it would just be a mess. »

Looking a little tired but still eager to chat, Ray Liotta sat down with us recently at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City to talk about co-starring in The Iceman, his new movie centered around notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon).
Liotta also spoke about being typecast as a gangster and the sad fact that he really doesn’t have a favorite Muppet. Read on!
Dread Central: So, Ray, what drew you to this role? What did you like about the film?
Ray Liotta: They offered it to me; I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it. [Director] Ariel [Vromen] really hadn’t done anything, but there was something that intrigued me. Michael Shannon was already cast and I didn’t really know his work that well. So I looked at some of his stuff and then met with Ariel and I liked him so I said all right. »

Star Trek Into Darkness hits UK cinemas next Thursday 9th May and earlier today I was lucky enough to sit down with Producer Bryan Burk and Writer / Producer Damon Lindel to talk about their brand new movie.
I focus a lot of the interview on the need to change the look and feel of some of the elements of the movie but their answers were spot on and as a Next Generation nut, I was pleased to hear why the decisions were made for change and how they need to drive the franchise forward. I also ask about when we can expect to see Star Trek back on the small screen after a six year absence.

I know I.m not alone when I say that in my teenage years I formed a massive crush on the pixie like Winona Ryder. There was something so utterly charming about her work in such films at Heathers, Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands that she was simply impossible to resist. I.m happy to say that we are seeing a return for this solid actress thanks to films like Black Swan and her recent turn as real life wife to Mafia hit man Richard Kuklinski in The Iceman opposite the great Michael Shannon. »
If last September's End of Watch and its $41 million domestic gross was any indication, police procedural movies have never been bigger or more lucrative, and their history never as storied. This week marks the 25th anniversary of the cop drama Colors' rise to number one at the U.S. box office (the weekend of April 29th- May 1st 1988), ousting Tim Burton's eclectic Beetlejuice and its four week reign at the top. Directed by Dennis Hopper and starring Sean Penn and Robert Duvall, Colors was a film with a heavy pedigree, and thus, clout – the film was shot by two-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler and scored by the great Herbie Hancock. The film dealt with a serious »

There was definitely some nervous apprehension on my part before meeting Winona Ryder -- which, having done this sort of thing hundreds of times before, doesn't happen often. This most likely stems from my preexisting notion that she's shy or reserved -- or, at the very least, media shy and reserved in front of the press. Soon after meeting the petite actor -- who still doesn't look all that different from the person who danced to Harry Belafonte's "Jump in the Line" at the end of "Beetlejuice" -- I discovered something that would have put my nervous mind at ease: Winona Ryder is, well ... a bit of a nerd.
Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but she is a fan of the original "Star Trek" television series and used to have a life-size poster of Ellen Ripley on her wall.
Ryder's new movie is "The Iceman," the latest »

"I’ve loved making movies," Winona Ryder said in Toronto late last year when reflecting back on her 26-year career. "I feel like I’ve been so lucky because I’ve gotten to be in movies that are some of my favorites, regardless of my being in them -- like 'Heathers.'" Ryder -- who turned 42 in October (though she still looks like she's 30) -- made her official debut in the 1986 high school drama "Lucas." The small, well-received role helped lead to a duo of late 1980s leads -- as Lydia in "Beetlejuice" and as Veronica in "Heathers" -- that propelled her to become an icon of her generation. "I was very lucky because Tim Burton really gave me a career," she said. "I don’t think Hollywood would’ve known what to do with me. If I hadn’t done 'Beetlejuice,' I think I would’ve »

To list every single make-up creation that has ever wowed us would be a fruitless, never-ending task with new weird, wonderful and amazing works being introduced to movie audiences year after year. Narrowing down a list that vast to just a 100 or even 50 would require some movie magic in itself. So to narrow out the list with just 20 make-up creations required a bit of divine intervention and some restrictions.
In choosing these make-up creations, my criteria was that there must be the physical billed actor in the make-up and with little or no animatronics involved. I’m sure there will be a lot of debate and disagreement with my list because of this, but it’s only fair that the actor in make-up is given his or her fair share of the credit in bringing that character to life. After all, it’s the actor in make-up that has to »
Greetings from the apocalypse! You might think that this particular Mad Max would enjoy watching Tom Cruise fight evil robots in a future nuclear-blasted wasteland, but Nope! "Oblivion" is a dud, though that doesn't mean we can't make it through the next few days as long as we stick together and don't cross the Dmz. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, troops, we're goin' in …
Friday, April 19
Pow! In Theaters
Xenu's own Tom Cruise returns to comfortable sci-fi territory this week with "Oblivion," which I will henceforth refer to as "The Matrix Redressed." Cruise is the only living boy in post-apocalyptic New York, where he and a stuffy British chick (Andrea Riseborough, natch) maintain giant water vacuums when they're not having PG-13 swimming pool sex … that is, until the mysterious Olga Kurylenko arrives from outer space. »

Michael Keaton has been sued by a production company over "diva" claims.
The Beetlejuice actor is said to have been difficult during the filming of Christmas movie The Merry Gentlemen, which he both directed and starred in.
Merry Gentleman, LLC alleges to have invested over $4 million to make the movie, reports TMZ.
The lawsuit claims that Keaton went on a fishing trip to Montana as soon as the company had finished building an editing facility for him in California.
The company states that Keaton then forced them to build another editing facility in Montana, in order for him to work in two different places.
Mg LLC also claims that Keaton did not work hard enough as a director at the beginning of the shoot, leading the producers to edit their own version of the film.
When the Batman star found that his version had been edited, he allegedly threatened to »
Winona Ryder has remained relatively out of the limelight for the past 10 years, but this week the actress hit the red carpet looking better than ever.
Ryder made a red carpet appearance on Monday evening in New York City for a special screening of Henry Alex Rubin's new thriller, "Disconnect," according to Us Weekly. The 41-year-old looked absolutely stunning in a black-on-black ensemble paired with bright red lips, soft curls and sheer pumps.
Some might not call it a comeback, per se.
The actress -- who shot to stardom in the '80s with hits like "Beetlejuice" and "Heathers" -- did attend some press events while promoting "Black Swan" in 2010 as well as "The Letter" and "Frankenweenie" in 2012.
Still, Ryder has stayed under the radar following her 2001 shoplifting conviction for snatching $4,760 worth of goods from a Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. Since the embarrassing blunder, she has kept to herself, »
