Keanu Reeves in 1985: If I Don't Make It, I'll Cry

23 October 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Before Keanu's new film John Wick hits theaters, let’s take a look at his first interview with Et.

Keanu Reeves has been acting for nearly three decades and Et has been with him every step of the way.

In celebration of John Wick, the 50-year-old actor's latest film out this Friday, we dug into the Et vault to find the first time we interviewed the actor—way back in 1985 on the set of the TV movie Young Again.

Video- Keanu Reeves Addresses Recent Home Break-In

"I can feel it, I'm having fun," a 21-year-old Keanu told Et. The young actor was wide-eyed and bushy-tailed working alongside TV's Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner, and had dreams of making it big himself one day. "I hope something gets out there that is magic -- and if not, I'll just be sad and cry," he joked.

It took a few more years, but Keanu would eventually make a name for »

NBC To Develop Legal Drama Based On The Devil’s Advocate

18 August 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a sneering, scenery-chewing Al Pacino and a breakout turn from Charlize Theron, The Devil’s Advocate remains a popular watch on cable. However, that successful film could have a more permanent place in the minds of TV watchers, as NBC is now developing a drama series based on the legal thriller from 1997. Arnold Kopelson (producer of the film) and The West Wing‘s John Wells are in talks to produce the series.

Like the film, The Devil’s Advocate series will focus on a rising lawyer who joins a firm run by Satan. Keanu Reeves played the public defender in Taylor Hackford’s film, while Al Pacino got to play the Devil, spouting juicy one liners about how vanity was definitely his favorite sin. The network already has a pilot ready to be filmed, written by Matt Venne (A&E’s Bag of Bones), but there is no guarantee NBC will pick it up, »

Gone With The Summer

14 August 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hattie is judging you. Stop with your fiddle-dees and choose a 'Best Shot' alreadyI'm like one of those horrible teachers that gives you endless homework. But I hope in the end when you graduate you'll be all 'he was the best. O Captain My Captain' and whatnot.  But here's what you should be watching for maximum participatory glee here at The Film Experience as the summer draws to a close.

Retro: To close out "Best Shot" we'll be celebrating Gone With the Wind in two parts for its 75th anniversary year on August 19th (pre-intermission) & August 26th (post-intermission) and The Matrix on September 2nd (if you've always wanted to participate, why not now?); Anne Marie will look at Long Days Journey Into Night and Guess Who's Coming To Dinner as she hits the glorious 1960s in "A Year With Kate". And we'll be celebrating a few films from 1989 leading up »

Book Review – Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale

31 July 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Scott Davis reviews Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale

Over the last two decades (give or take) Joss Whedon has gone from script “puncher-upper” through developing his own films and television shows, to the pronounced G”eek of the Universe”, the title of the biography by Amy Pascale. Taking a look at Whedon’s whole career, the ups, downs, successes and heartbreaks, this is certainly an expansive look, as Pascale delves deep through his early days through to his new life in the Marvel Universe. At a whopping 400 pages, it certainly looks like a long slog, but Pascale’s book is a great read, insightful, witty and informative, as well as being fascinating and absorbing.

Throughout the book, there are many great stories about all the projects that Whedon has left his stamp on, all of which are suitably, and comprehensively covered here. It’s »

Brian Grazer Is Hustling to Keep Imagine Entertainment Relevant in Ever-Changing Hollywood

16 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s odd to see Brian Grazer chillin’.

But there he is — the frenetic mega-producer — lounging in his sprawling backyard in Santa Monica, Calif., overlooking the Riviera Country Club, munching on a breakfast of turkey bacon and eggs over easy, drinking fresh-pressed carrot juice with a touch of ginger.

Not surprisingly the zen moment quickly dissolves.

“Oh shit, can I text Mick Jagger back?” Grazer asks a reporter, suddenly bolting upright, his gold-and-white leather encased iPhone vibrating. The two are co-producing “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic that debuts Aug. 1. Jagger’s on tour in Europe, and they’ve missed a chance to talk. “He’s so polite and British,” Grazer confides. “You have to be like, ‘How are you this morning?’ and take a beat, and then get on with it.”

Grazer prides himself on deciphering what makes a person tick. He’s spent the past three decades peppering industry titans, »

The weekend when Rick Moranis ruled the box office

23 June 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Back in the summer of 1989, Rick Moranis had three films in the Us top 20 - each going on to be a $100m+ hit....

Feature

On August 4th 1989, the film Parenthood opened at number one in the Us, taking $10.5m on its opening weekend. It knocked Turner & Hooch off the top spot down to second, with Lethal Weapon 2 rounding out the top three.

Parenthood is lots of things. It's a very strong comedy. It's a film that boasts one of the finest comedic ensembles brought together in one movie in the last 25 years. And it's a movie that's spun off two really quite different television series.

But if you look at that top 20 box office chart for the weekend of August 4th-6th 1989, then you might just notice a pretty impressive achievement on top of all of that. For one actor had three films in the top 20, at the same time. »

'Speed' 20th anniversary: Screenwriter Graham Yost looks back on 'the bus movie' that became a classic

10 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Screenwriter Graham Yost, now the showrunner of FX’s Justified, admits that the plot of Speed sounds ridiculous: A bomb on a bus will detonate if the bus travels below 50 mph. But when the movie was released June 10, 1994, a funny thing happened: It became a hit with moviegoers and critics alike. To quote EW’s grade-a review: “The film takes off from formula elements – it’s yet another variation on Die Hard – but it manipulates those elements so skillfully, with such a canny mixture of delirium and restraint, that I walked out of the picture with the rare sensation that »

Upfronts 2014: NBC tries to build on its first-place finish by leaning on 'The Blacklist'

11 May 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A very strange thing happened to NBC this year: for the first time in a decade — a period during which it has mostly been a laughingstock — it will finish a season in first place among the adults 18-49 demographic that advertisers care about most. Ordinarily, a network that wins a season can play things conservatively for the next year, but NBC's success isn't entirely replicable. Yes, the network's buoyed by regular, season-long programming like "The Voice" and hit freshman drama "The Blacklist," but a lot of credit for that win comes from "Sunday Night Football," which always goes away in January (leaving the network's ratings on that night a shambles), and some from the Winter Olympics, which won't be back for another four years. So the schedule that NBC announced for next season seems on the one hand a fairly stable one. "The Blacklist," for instance, will stay in a »

A Smackdown Summer Cometh

5 May 2014 5:33 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

When I announced that The Film Experience would be the new home of the long departed series Stinky Lulu's Smackdown last summer I figured you would be thrilled. It's our kind of party. I promised Stinky we'd do at least six smackdowns if we brought it back. With four battles already behind us -- pie throwing 1952, shady and sinister 1968, warm and kooky 1980, and troubled histrionic 2003-- let's wrap it up with four more. 

Rather than announce at the end of each month, I figured we'd give you all four lineups in case you'd like more time to catch up over the hot months and cast your votes in the reader polling that accompanies each battle. Those votes count toward the final outcome, so more of you should join in. 

These annums were chosen after comment reading, dvd searching, handwringing, and also to rope in prospective panelists (to be announced later »

Martha Plimpton on Other Desert Cities: 'Oh jeez, now I'm nervous'

24 March 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The tomboyish daughter of movie stars, Martha Plimpton never got the pretty-girl parts. But by 15, she was in The Goonies and dating River Phoenix. The actor talks to Ryan Gilbey about her looks, stage fright – and growing up with the cast of Hair

Martha Plimpton steps out into the street for an early-evening smoke and is immediately pounced upon by two middle-aged men in windcheaters. "Ooh," says the stage-door manager at the Old Vic, sucking his teeth. "She walked straight into that one." We watch the autograph-hunters retreat with their signed glossies while Plimpton becomes absorbed in her mobile phone.

"It comes with the territory," she says, after climbing the stairs back to the rehearsal room. Her voice has a Marge Simpson huskiness to it, with a New Yorker's seen-it-all fatigue. Plimpton has not, all things considered, had to put up with too much intrusion, though, apart from the abusive »

What Ever Happened To Rick Moranis?

24 March 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bless Rick Moranis. The prolific comedian-actor had an incredible run in the 80.s, moving from Sctv to Ghostbusters, moving on to Walter Hill.s Streets Of Fire, Little Shop Of Horrors, Spaceballs, Parenthood and even his own franchise, Honey I Shrunk The Kids. Ultimately, the roles dried up and Moranis was demeaning himself in a series of sidekick and wimp roles. And ultimately, six years after his wife.s passing, Rick Moranis fled filmmaking entirely, leaving behind an unimpeachable legacy. While Rick Moranis has popped up sporadically in film and television, he.s mostly stayed home with his kids, enjoying life as a single father. He recently stopped by the podcast Bullseye with Jessie Thorn, and Uproxx collected the most notable portions. And his reasons from avoiding the limelight seem modest, respectable, believable. "Stuff happens to people everyday, and they make adjustments to their lives for all kinds of reasons. »

Review: 'Justified' - 'Weight'

18 March 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as I have a pleather attaché... Early in "Weight," Ava tells a visiting Boyd that she sees no end in sight to her ever-worsening miseries. While I doubt this was intended as a meta comment about the prison storyline — or the Crowe family troubles, or any of this season's other weak spots — it unfortunately played out that way. And the thing is, "Weight" really didn't do anything to improve the many problematic areas of season 5 — other than killing off Danny Crowe, in one of the season's best (and, not coincidentally, most Elmore Leonard-esque) scenes — but the parts around the parts that aren't working were kind of terrific. I still don't care about the status of Boyd's heroin shipment, about Ava's struggle to open up a new drug pipeline into the prison, or about the petty squabbles and stupid loyalties of the Crowe clan. »

Joaquin Phoenix on heartbreak, rejuvenation and Siri

8 February 2014 12:48 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There's a four-year hole on the actor's IMDb page after Walk The Line. But rather than playing games, he's given himself the freedom to make more interesting movies

Around halfway through I'm Still Here, the 2010 documentary chronicling Joaquin Phoenix's short-lived rap career and apparent retirement from acting, he undertakes a shambolic press junket, snapping when a journalist asks if it's all a hoax. "It's hard not to get offended, because you're talking about my life," barks Phoenix. "As if my life's a fuckin' joke to you."

It's moderately disconcerting, having recently watched that sequence, to be here in a hotel suite with Phoenix, another journalist talking about his life. When I enter the room, though, he's standing. His hair long from filming Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, he's seemingly ego-free, loose and engaged, joking around from the off. Throughout the interview there's never a sense that he's humouring me, »
