Chris Columbus To Produce ‘Gremlins’ Remake!

11 July 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He wrote the script for the original film, now Chris Columbus is rumoured to be on board to produce the Gremlins remake.

The Home Alone director had a string of successful projects during the 80s and early 90s directing classics such as Adventures In Babysitting and Mrs Doubtfire. Not much is known about the remake apart from it being set 30 years after the first film’s events.  Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are also confirmed as producers for the film.

If this is true, I am sure fans of the original are breathing a little sigh of relief for having Columbus back on board.  But that is not the only Columbus rumour, it was earlier announced that a sequel to The Goonies is in the works.   Richard Donner has been developing ideas for the follow up to the 1985 hit film with Steven Spielberg.  Not much is known about the sequel »

Rumor: Chris Columbus to Produce New 'Gremlins' and 'Goonies'

10 July 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though filmmaker Chris Columbus may not be at the top of his game right now (hopefully his big screen version of Pixels will change that), back in the day, Columbus was responsible for some of the most revered movies of the 80s. The Home Alone director wrote the script for the original Gremlins back in 1984, and also the script for The Goonies back in 1985. Now if a rumor from The Tracking Board is to be believed, Columbus will go back to his roots by producing the new versions of both those films, which are each in some stage of development. While one is a sequel, the other will be a reboot. But which is which? Read on! Let's start with The Goonies. We had already heard earlier this year that director Richard Donner was developing a sequel to the childhood adventure favorite with Steven Spielberg, and pretty much all of »

Halfway Mark: The Best Movies of 2014 (so far) Part 1

1 July 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Picking the best movies that come out in any given year is no easy feat. For film fans, a quality feature can come out at any time, from any one, and discovering an enjoyable and well-crafted feature is truly a pleasure. As we reach the halfway point of the year, many excellent films have already made their way to theatres, films that are well worth a watch. Below, you shall find the list of the top 30 films of 2014 to date, a list that ranges from science fiction thrillers to period dramas.

A few notes to keep in mind when reading our entry: Certain films from our 2013 list make a second appearance on this list. This is because the movies, while technically released this year, were seen by a select few in time for last year’s list, due to the benefit of film festivals and press screenings. The list itself is in no particular order, »

Steve Pink Directing 'Home Alone In A Toy Store' Family Comedy Overnight

27 June 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Steve Pink's filmography has shades of the ridiculous. His directorial debut was the goofy Diy college comedy Accepted. His follow-up was the preposterously titled Hot Tub Time Machine. Then he took on a remake of the acerbic 1980s rom-com About Last Night. While their setups may have earned some initial sneers, each of these hysterical comedies was able to do solid work at the box office. And now Disney is getting in the Pink business, hiring him to helm their upcoming family adventure Overnight. THR has gotten word that Steve Pink has signed on to direct Overnight, which is being described as Home Alone set in an Fao Schwarz-esque toy store. My first thought on hearing this news was, "Wait, wasn't that the plot of Home Alone 2?" But while that much-loved sequel did involve a toy store (Duncan's Toy Chest to be precise), that setting was not where »

Will Ferrell set to stay Overnight with Steve Pink

27 June 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After his return as Ron Burgundy is last year’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Will Ferrell has been keeping himself busy with some new material. Earlier this year, he worked on his upcoming comedy Get Hard co-starring Kevin Hart (Ride Along) and Alison Brie (Community), as well as co-starring again with Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) and James Marsden (X-Men) in Welcome To Me.

Now, it seems Ferrell has already lined up his next film over at Disney. Steve Pink (About Last Night, Hot Tub Time Machine) has been set to direct Overnight, which is being produced by Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions, and could be the next vehicle for the comedian. Variety has said that the plot is said to be like Home Alone but set in a toy store.

Unoriginal for sure, but anything with Ferrell gets our vote, and we await confirmation of the actor »

Even though they lost, the United States soccer team is moving up to the next round at the World Cup, and Will Ferrell didn't even have to bite anyone.

Kids' Movie Quotes: The Most Iconic, Memorable, and Repeated Lines in Movie History

27 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kids say the darnedest things! Isn't that what Bill Cosby taught us back in the 1990s? Well, the legendary comedian was right, obviously, especially when it comes to memorable movie quotes. We wanted to take a look back through the decades at some of the most hilarious, touching, unforgettable lines said by kid characters (most are live-action, but there are a few animated characters too). We even asked some of our friends and readers what their favorites were and came up with this list of 25, but it just as easily could have been 50.

And if you notice we paid extra attention to the '80s and '90s, let's just say that's when many of us were growing up; we're sure younger (and older) readers could come up with an entirely different lineup of quotes. Feel free to share them in the comments!

'Hot Tub Time Machine' Helmer is Sleeping 'Overnight' at Disney

26 June 2014 9:23 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in February, we reported that Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer was going to venture into family adventure territory with Overnight, a toy store heist film set up at Disney. However, it seems like a deal couldn't be finalized as THR reports that it will be Hot Tub Time Machine and About Last Night director Steve Pink taking on the film with a script from 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel. The film is simply described as Home Alone in a toy store as it follows a father and son who win the chance to sleepover in some sort of amazing toy store like Fao Schwarz.. But it happens to be the night that some guys try to rob it. The father and son bond after having a rough relationship following a divorce while stopping the robbery that turns into a hostage situation. Funnily enough, the project was originally set up at »

Sharknado Vinyl Figure and RiffTrax Event Details

26 June 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When Ian Ziering’s character Fin raised his chainsaw and leaped at the jaws of a flying shark in Syfy’s Sharknado, it no doubt caused all kinds of comments in both viewers’ homes and on their Twitter accounts. But perhaps a few people watching the intentional B-movie wondered what side-splitting remarks the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 would have made during that scene and throughout the entire film. Well, wonder no more: a live recording of Sharknado commentary from three former members of MST3K will take place in just two weeks, and further commemorating the shark-filled cyclone flick is a Sharknado Pop! vinyl figure from Funko.

The 4-inch vinyl figure features a shark inside a freak saltwater tornado with its mouth wide open and sharp teeth on full display. Coming soon to online retailers like Amazon (in stock on July 3rd, 2014), this vinyl figure will help usher in »

Which movie makes you cry the most? Digital Spy staff picks

19 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you haven't heard, The Fault in Our Stars is kind of a sad film. The reaction across the pond (where the film has been out for a couple of weeks) has essentially been one long, drawn out ugly-cry, to the point where Slate have even released a handy guide to keeping your eye make-up intact.

Even the movie's stars Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern aren't immune, as they admitted in our video interview. We also asked them what other films have made them cry, which sparked a discussion back in the office about the most effective tearjerkers of all time.

Below, Digital Spy staffers reveal the films that are guaranteed to leave them a weeping mess.
