With the recent 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, here is a look at those music stars who made a transition to film. Some were more successful than others. Some made a fleeting crossover and some are best forgotten as far as their film careers went…
In terms of the King, Elvis has an undoubtedly huge legacy as far as music goes. His influence as far as attitude, showmanship and indeed the music itself is still being felt. He was in that bracket of the most influential musical acts of his era alongside the Beatles. However his impact on film was also important. He showed that a cultural phenomenon could operate over two platforms.
Beginning in 1956 with Love Me Tender, Elvis would go onto make over 30 films until 1969. A few more iconic than others of course, such as Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas and some more interesting attempts to »
These days, Kate Moss is widely considered to be one of the greatest supermodels to ever grace the planet.
Over the course of her three-decade-spanning career, Moss has become a household name thanks to an endless list of legendary commercials, editorials, magazine covers, and catwalk appearances. With her slight 5’7″ frame, waifish figure, and super wide-set eyes, she single-handedly changed the face of the industry and ushered in a new dominating, if seriously controversial, aesthetic for models.
But once upon a time, back in the early ’90s, Moss was just an ingenue looking to make a name for herself in the »

Kate Moss‘ ionic modeling photos may now be shared all over social media as inspiration, #mood and #Tbt content, but long before that Moss reached supermodel stardom all on her own without the help of a feed. While she’s now one of the biggest supermodels in the world, and perhaps of all time, back in the ’90s she paved the way for an entirely new aesthetic of beauty in the industry, ignoring detractors who initially branded her as too short, too thin, and too alien-esque. Nonetheless, Moss continued on to pose for some of the most legendary covers and campaigns, »

As you might expect of a gathering of self-proclaimed “white nationalists,” today’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent. One person was killed and several more were injured after a car drove into a group of people protesting the event, and a state of emergency has been declared by Governor Terry McAuliffe.

Music fans around the world are today mourning the death of Glen Campbell.
Campbell and his family bravely revealed his Alzheimer’s diagnosis in 2011, and embarked on a final “Goodbye Tour” that was documented in the award-winning documentary “I’ll Be Me.” Since that time, Campbell and his family continued to advocate on behalf of the cause, including sharing their story on Capitol Hill and speaking out on behalf of the millions of families in the U.S. facing the disease.
“The Alzheimer’s Association extends sincere condolences to Glen Campbell’s family, friends and fans. Glen was a courageous advocate on behalf of Alzheimer’s, not only bravely sharing his diagnosis with the world, but continuing to bring joy to his fans through his music while facing the disease so publicly,” said Harry Johns, president and CEO, Alzheimer's Association. “Glen and his family helped to bring Alzheimer’s out »
Nolan Gould is getting ready to go off to college!
The Modern Family star spoke with Et's Katie Krause at Variety's Power of Young Hollywood event, sponsored by H&M, in Los Angeles on Tuesday, where he revealed that he'd recently been accepted to the University of Southern California.
When asked about his on-screen sister, Ariel Winter, getting accepted to UCLA last year, Gould joked about the possibility of getting competitive with his co-star in the future.
"I actually got accepted to the opposing school," the 18-year-old actor said, laughing. "It's going to be a TV sibling rivalry for sure. We're definitely gonna have to watch some games together."
While Winter has said she's interested in studying law, Gould's interests lie closer to the world he's become so familiar with over the last decade of acting.
"I got accepted for Cinematic Arts," he shared »

If IMAX CEO Greg Foster is to be believed, the upcoming Inhumans series will change the way we watch television. The first series to be shot with IMAX cameras, it’s to be broadcasted – or at least the first two episodes – across cinemas and IMAX screens around the globe, only for the further episodes to be viewed on your couch.
All this bodes rather well. It’s a landmark event, a one off, the first in what Foster hopes will be a regular occurrence. I had the pleasure of attending a preview of early, largely unfinished footage of Inhumans at the BFI IMAX with an introduction and Q & A with director and producer Roel Reiné.
There was certain trepadation when the first trailer dropped. The footage looked flat, the costumes largely ridiculous, the CGI cheap, and little seems to have changed. »

Among the more diverse Emmy groupings that were revealed on Thursday’s nominations announcement: the brand new Outstanding Music Supervision award, which featured three women among the five episodes in contention. Netflix and HBO rule the category, with each up for two — Netflix’s “Master Of None” and “Stranger Things,” and HBO’s “Girls” and “Big Little Lies” — while AMC’s “Better Call Saul” rounds out the group.
Some 75 shows were submitted for the category, which music professionals and fans alike have long complained was overlooked in the Emmy race. In May, Michael A. Levine, one of the Academy’s two music governors, explained that, “The job of music supervision has evolved, from what was once primarily an administrative task to becoming a creative and artistic one.”
Indeed, beyond the complexities of licensing and clearances for recorded tracks, which can easily push a music budget to over $1 million if songs by top-tier artists are used, the »

When James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy came out in August of 2014, I did not know anything about the team of Guardians. As a matter of fact I didn't even go see this film in theaters. But when I did see it I was hooked from the the opening sequence of the film where Star Lord, played by Chris Pratt, steals a mysterious orb. The main reason why? The great soundtrack that accompanied the film, this particular scene was included the song Come and Get Your Love by Redbone. The rest of the film featured great songs like Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede and Want You Back by The Jackson 5. These were all part of Peter Quill's "Awesome Mixtape" that he carried with him everywhere he went on his walkman.
When the sountrack for the film was released by Hollywood Records, it reached the number one on the Us Billboard 200 chart, »

Following a much-publicised departure from Ant-Man, Edgar Wright is back with a new film which he has both written and directed. Baby Driver stars Ansel Elgort alongside the likes of Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx. We had 15 minutes with Wright to talk about the film's long gestation and how he took it from Wood Green Dhss to the big screen...
So this one's been on the slate for a while. I hear you had the idea for it something like 20 years ago now?
Yeah, it's funny, when I've mentioned that kind of timeline - having the idea 22 years ago - it's true in a sense that I heard a song and visualised a car chase, which is John Spencer Blues Explosion's Bellbottoms, »
After the photo-real wonders of its Oscar-winning “Piper,” Pixar tackled a more abstract animation challenge in its latest short about schoolyard bullying. In “Lou,” which plays in front of “Cars 3,” a pile of lost and found items in a box coalesce into an anthropomorphic character who harasses a bully when he steals from other kids.
Baseballs become Lou’s eyes, a book becomes his mouth, a baseball mitt and slinky become his hand and arm, and a hoodie becomes his body. However, Lou manages to hold together since the objects constantly shift around. The result is a wacky chase around the schoolyard and a surprisingly emotional comeuppance.
“We’re cramming so much stuff into the film that people don’t get a break until [a revelation]

Orphan Black is in its fifth and final season, which will consist of ten episodes. So far, the first episode of the season was broadcast on June 10, meaning that the rest of the season will not be far behind. This is something that should come as exciting news to those who have been following the sci-fi thriller since the start. Here are some examples of what we can expect from the final season of Orphan Black: Expect the Clones to Come Together It is interesting to note that Tatiana Maslany has stated that she thinks that the core theme

The first time I ever met Paul Davis was at a HorrorHound convention back in 2007. He was there presenting some footage from his amazing documentary, Beware The Moon, a celebration of all things An American Werewolf in London. His passion and enthusiasm for John Landis’ film, as well as for the horror genre as a whole, immediately struck me, and I’ve been following his career in the realms of filmmaking and writing ever since.
His latest literary endeavor, Lost in the Shadows: The Story of The Lost Boys, is currently available for pre-order Here, and arrives just in time for the 30th anniversary of Joel Schumacher’s landmark horror comedy. Daily Dead recently caught up with Davis to hear more about how Lost in the Shadows came together, his progression from werewolves to vampires, his experiences catching up with the cast and crew of The Lost Boys, and more. »

Barring the brief exchange between Gal Gadot’s Immortal Warrior and Batman at the beginning, you’d be forgiven if today’s promo left you with a general feeling of ‘been there, done that.’ Nevertheless, set against a suitably remixed version of “Come Together” by The Beatles, up above you’ll see all six costumed crusaders come together in the face of a common enemy. And though Warner Bros. is keeping a firm lid on the actual specifics of Justice League‘s story, those who have seen Batman V Superman will know that Ciarán Hinds’ all-powerful Steppenwolf isn’t too far away, and that’s before you even factor in Darkseid and those Mother Boxes.
