Ciara McAvoy: The Hollywood Interview

Sweet Painting Lady: Ciara McAvoy Resurrects the Art of the Movie Poster

By Alex Simon

“Art is not just a part of my life. It Is my life. It gives me breath. We are eternally entwined.” This is the mantra of Scottish artist Ciara McAvoy, a painter renowned for her stunning oil work, which the Glasgow-born artist has used to create some of the most iconic movie posters in modern times. Inspired by her French grandfather, a pre-ww II portraitist who gained fame at Montmartre, McAvoy’s interest in drawing and painting film-related subjects began after her first viewing of Star Wars as a child.

“I started drawing at eight and painted and sold my first oil, entitled Cops, when I was only twelve years old, so I guess I can say that I was born to be an artist," McAvoy recalled in a 2014 interview with David Bateman of Stv Glasgow. »

Bad Weekend: The Last 10 Memorial Day Movies, Ranked

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be synonymous with quality. It developed that reputation in the 80s by nabbing films such as Star Wars, Return of the Jedi, Rocky III, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, but overall it’s actually a pretty awful weekend when it comes to quality films. For every Themla and Louise there’s a Hudson Hawk, Crocodile Dundee II, and Super Mario Bros. Nevertheless, studios bank on the long weekend to boost box office on blockbusters, and it’s been that way for decades. With that in mind, I’ve gone over the last 10 years and ranked the weekend’s highest grossing movie from worst to best. I’d say to prepare for some painful memories if most of these flicks weren’t so forgettable. [All box office data via Box Office Mojo]

Lol: Peter Dinklage Sings About Character Deaths in ‘Game of Thrones’ Musical [Updated]

22 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Not long after we saw Anna Kendrick star in a teaser for a female-led remake of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, we have some more amusing fun being teased for Red Nose Day. For those who don’t know, Red Nose Day is a comedy fundraiser that started in the United Kingdom and is making […]

The most satisfying movie threequels

21 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The making of threequels can be a thorny business, especially when it comes to the most beloved of franchises, but that hasn't held back the creation of some truly phenomenal third films.

With the recent arrival of the The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in Sky Store, we're celebrating some of the best threequels out there:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The Harry Potter series gave us a unique chance to watch a group of young actors growing up over more than a decade from cute little kids to major stars with some serious blockbusters under their belts.

As with Jk Rowling's original novels, The Prisoner of Azkaban revealed the full potential of the series. It is darker and scarier, sure, but also richer and more complex with some great character moments from its young cast.

Director Alfonso Cuarón brings a touch of magic to »

Watch: Anna Kendrick as Indiana Jones in a Red Nose Day Sketch

19 May 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Make sure that's the one!" This Thursday (May 21st) it will be "Red Nose Day", a major charity event held to "have fun, raise money and change the lives of children living in poverty in the U.S. and in some of the poorest communities around the world." It centers around wearing a red nose to spread laughter, but NBC is also hosting their own big TV special on Thursday night to raise money. It will feature all kinds of celebrity appearance, funny sketches and more. One of them debuted online early (via SlashFilm) and features the amazingly talented Anna Kendrick playing Indiana Jones in one of the scenes from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the one where he drinks water from the Holy Grail. It's an amusing riff on that scene. Thanks to NBC for this video, try watching on their site if you're having trouble viewing above. »

Video of the Day: Watch Anna Kendrick step into the role of Indiana Jones

19 May 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Among the most well-known cinematic characters of the 80s is Indiana Jones, an adventurous professor played over three films during the decade by Harrison Ford, with Steven Spielberg directing each film. Ford and Spielberg once again returned to the franchise in 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the end of which suggested that the reins of the character would soon be passed off to a younger counterpart, in a similar vein to 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road.

Now, as part of the promotion for its upcoming Red Nose Day fundraising marathon, NBC has released their own take on the franchise, with Pitch Perfect‘s Anna Kendrick donning the iconic fedora as “Indianna Jones”. In a riff on the all-female lead casting of Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, Kendrick recreates the chalice selection scene from 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, putting her own spin on it. »

Anna Kendrick is the new Indiana Jones in Last Crusade reboot: "Times have changed"

18 May 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade gets a whole new look as Anna Kendrick slips on Indy's cap for a reboot.

Gone is the five o'clock shadow - this Indiana Jones has some more practical uses for the Holy Grail but is just as quippy as ever!

This new female Indiana Jones parody was actually produced by Funny or Die for this week's Red Nose Day Us to poke fun at the upcoming all-female Ghostbusters movie and rumours of an Indy reboot.

Starring with Kendrick in the Red Nose Day Us video is comedian Brett Gelman, who plays a neurotic protector of the Grail.

The biennial Red Nose Day telethon is being brought from the UK to the Us for the first time by Sir Richard Curtis to raise money for 12 charities working with children and young adults in the Us and Africa.

NBC's star-studded lineup for the three-hour telethon includes Matt LeBlanc, »

Watch Anna Kendrick In Hysterical Indiana Jones Spoof

18 May 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With this past weekend.s box-office beating laid down by Pitch Perfect 2, it may not be so implausible to see Anna Kendrick crossing over into other lucrative film genres. In fact, this new charity-inspired parody for the upcoming Red Nose Day TV special takes the upcoming, possibly trend-setting gender-swap treatment of Ghostbusters and gives us a glimpse of Kendrick.s take on a key scene from the Indiana Jones films. Satirically referring to itself as a "reboot," this take on the Grail Room scene from 1989.s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was put together to promote NBC.s Red Nose Day special on May 21. Sure, it might be missing the suspense of nabbing a magical MacGuffin cure for a gut-shot father in Sean Connery.s Henry Jones or even a sexy secret Nazi lover aiding in the Grail selection, but it.s clear that we.re at that »

‘The Simpsons’ Renewed for Two More Seasons, Heads for Record Books

5 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In TV years, The Simpsons is already the equivalent of the Grail Knight from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and the series isn’t giving up its post any time soon. The all-time record for a scripted prime-time TV series is 635 episodes, held by Gunsmoke, which ran from 1955 to 1975. The Simpsons has […]

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

25. An Innocent Man

23 specially-shot movie teaser trailers

21 April 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Psycho to Jurassic Park, here are 23 teaser trailers that don't show a frame of footage from the movies they're advertising...

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.

But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »

8 Unmade Steven Spielberg Films

31 March 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last week we reported on Steven Spielberg’s plans to direct an adaptation of the cult sci-fi novel by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One. Color us excited. The novel involves players of a video game journeying into a virtual reality world rife with pop culture references and Easter eggs to the real world. The player who can decipher all the mysteries and references in the world wins the opportunity to control it. In Spielberg’s capable hands, it has the potential to be a technical marvel and a modern classic.

That is, if he actually makes it. Ready Player One poses some unusually problematic challenges on just a practical standpoint. Cline’s story falls into the “unfilmable novel” territory, not just for the digital world necessary for a filmmaker to recreate, but also in terms of licensing.

‘Ghostbusters': The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man ruined my childhood

30 March 2015 4:27 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“It just… popped in there.” says Ray Stantz, as played by Dan Aykroyd in the climax of the ’80s classic movie Ghostbusters. An inter-dimensional super-villain named Zuul has started to breach the worldly barriers, and ghosts are appearing in 1980s New York City. These ghosts aren’t friendly. They’re decidedly unfriendly. In fact, they’re generally causing a scene. Cue the Ghostbusters, a rag-tag bunch of college layabouts who discover the secret to catching said spirits, and more importantly, a way to monetize their capture. That’s capitalism, folks.

Zuul, as it happens, is just a minion for a millennia old God named Gozer the Destructor, and (s)he instructs the ‘Busters to choose a form for Gozer to take when he arrives to lay waste to their city. Whatever they think of, that’s what will come to destroy them. And so, our heroes attempt to clear their minds of all thoughts. »

Harrison Ford Suffered 'Bad Laceration' to Scalp in Plane Crash, Says Eyewitness

5 March 2015 8:55 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Harrison Ford had a 5-to-6-inch gash about "the size of a pancake" in his scalp when he emerged from his crashed plane, an eyewitness tells People. "He had a pretty bad laceration. It went from the middle of his scalp down his forehead to the right," says the eyewitness, who arrived on the scene within five minutes of the crash. "It was a clean cut and wasn't bleeding too much, considering," adds the witness. Several onlookers immediately rushed to Ford's aid, including a hospital aid and a spine surgeon who happened to be at the golf course at the time. »

Chris Pratt on Indiana Jones rumours: 'I wouldn't be overwhelmed by it'

24 February 2015 4:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Pratt has said that he wouldn't be intimidated by the prospect of playing Indiana Jones.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star has been heavily linked to the lead role in an Indy reboot film, with Steven Spielberg said to be in line to return to the director's chair.

Speaking to MTV on the Oscars red carpet, Pratt said that the speculation was "all nothing 'till it's something, and so far it's not something".

"I don't think it's overwhelming to contemplate [playing Indiana Jones]," he said. "It'd be cool. No-one's called me, you know, there's a lot of talk about it.

"The pressure would come just because it's a great franchise, you wouldn't wanna get it wrong. So, for me, it would have to be perfect to do it. We'll see."

Pratt can next be seen playing the lead in Jurassic World, which will be executive produced by Spielberg.

Review: The Phantom of the Opera (Blu-ray)

23 February 2015 9:52 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Growing up, I was a huge Freddy Krueger fan. I had also become infatuated with Gaston Leroux’s novel, The Phantom of the Opera, which made me a pretty easy mark for Dwight H. Little’s (Halloween 4) 1989 film based on the popular work of fiction. Focusing more on the horror contained within Leroux’s original story, this version is a wickedly ghastly and blood-soaked tale of obsession that allows Robert Englund the room to do what he does best as a performer- go nuts. And after recently checking out the Scream Factory Blu-ray, it was great to see just how well Little’s inventive adaptation has held up over time and how much fun the film still remains, despite its age.

In this Phantom of the Opera, Jill Schoelen portrays an aspiring singer by the name of Christine Day who gets knocked unconscious during an audition, an event that mysteriously »

Harrison Ford -- Screw the Oscars ... I'd Rather Watch Crappy Lakers

23 February 2015 6:02 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

To quote the Grail Knight at the end of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" ... Harrison Ford chose wisely.  Instead of suffering through the nearly 4 hours of whatever that was on TV last night, Harrison grabbed his wife Calista Flockhart and hit up the Staples Center to watch the crappy Lakers.  But unlike the Academy Awards, Harrison Ford got a surprise ending ... the last place Lake Show actually pulled out a victory over the almost equally bad Boston Celtics. »

Indiana Jones: Spielberg may direct Chris Pratt sequel

22 February 2015 10:18 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The latest Indiana Jones rumour: not only is Chris Pratt to star, but Steven Spielberg is interested in directing...

There's still more rumour than fact when it comes to the next Indiana Jones film, but those rumours are certainly getting more interesting. The one thing we know for certain is that Disney went to the trouble of acquiring the Indy rights it didn't get when it bought Lucasfilm, snapping them up in a deal with Paramount Pictures a year or so back. So it's presumably keen to make new Indiana Jones films.

Whilst Harrison Ford has remained interested in reprising the role for Indiana Jones 5 though, age is not really on his side there, particularly as there have been precious few signs of the new film coming together (Ford is 73 this year). Thus, while it was a rumour seemingly out of nowhere, the revelation that Chris Pratt was being »
