'Back to the Future' Gets 30th Anniversary Screenings With Live Orchestra

21 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future next year, Universal Pictures will rerelease the 1985 Michael J. Fox time-travel classic with live orchestration. According to Variety, the film will be screened in various venues around the world without the score, so that a live orchestra could perform Alan Silvestri's Academy Award–nominated music. The orchestra will also perform 15 minutes of new music that the composer wrote specifically for the engagements.

The first performance of Back to the Future with live orchestration will take place in May 2015 in Lucerne, »

13 Surprising Revelations of The Wonder Years Cast Reunion

21 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Back in May, the cast of the Emmy-winning coming-of-age TV series The Wonder Years reunited to film some extras for the show's DVD release. The beloved show about growing up in the 1960s (filmed in the late '80s and early '90s) has been off the air for two decades, and the actors hadn't all gotten together in over 16 years. Stars Fred Savage and Jason Hervey shared a few "sneak peek" pics on Twitter, but the general public would have to wait a little longer to fully indulge in our childhood nostalgia. Well, that long wait has finally come to an end. »

‘Back to the Future’ Gets Live Orchestra for 30th Anniversary Celebration

21 October 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back to the Future” will race across the big screen just in time for the comic adventure’s 30th anniversary.

Unlike some other anniversary celebrations, there’s a twist: The picture that made DeLoreans cool, popularized the concept of flux capacitors and made incestuous attraction improbably hilarious will be shown with a live orchestra playing the soundtrack. The original Alan Silvestri score has been edited out, so musicians in major concert halls and performance venues can play in synch with the on-screen action.

The presentation comes courtesy of Img Artists and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency, which have previously given the live orchestra treatment to such films as “West Side Story,” “Star Trek” and “Home Alone.” The world premiere will be given by the 21st Century Orchestra in Lucerne, Switzerland, in late May and other venues are expected to book the film, a spokesman for the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency said.

40 Great Horror Films for the Halloween Season 3

17 October 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Movies 20-11

20. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) directed by Wes Craven

Before he was the one-line-loving, crassly, campy class clown known as Freddy, Fred Krueger was the stuff of genuine nightmares. Scarred and grinning in his striped wool sweater, Fred prowls the dreamscape realm of the local high schoolers, the children upon whom he once preyed before their parents got smart and burned him alive. Years ago, Fred was a janitor at the elementary school; he lured children into the boiler room, where, it’s insinuated, he molested and maimed the kids. Now, years later, he returns to haunt the dreams of the children of Suburbia, America. Craven conjures the most surreal imagery of his wildly uneven career here, and Robert Englund instills Craven’s iconic creation with sharp, wry kind of terror, his playful delivery still ironic before the sequels declawed him. He wears his ratty old fedora like »

23 movies currently being turned into TV shows

15 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.

Here are 23 - count 'em! - currently in differing stages of production...

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet DVD Review

9 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Starring: Kyle Catlett, Helena Bonham Carter, Callum Keith Rennie, Niamh Wilson, Jakob Davies, Judy Davis

Certificate: 12

Synopsis: A ten-year-old cartographer secretly leaves his family’s ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country aboard a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute.

Director Jean-Pierre Jenuet paints a distinctive pallet of work from Delicatessen (1991) to A Very Long Engagement (2004), but you’d probably be most familiar with the wonderful Amelie starring Audrey Tautou. Never a stranger to taking an alternative look at a story, his beautiful visuals continue in The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet alongside a strong blood-beating heart to take hold of.

T.S. Spivet tells the story of its namesake, a ten-year boy who’s a genius and impeccably portrayed by Kyle Catlett in his feature film debut. Spivet lives in Montana »

Movie Review: The Equalizer

6 October 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Equalizer was an espionage television series that aired for four seasons on CBS from fall 1985 to spring 1989. It starred the late English actor Edward Woodward as Robert McCall, a middle-aged retired intelligence officer with a mysterious past who used his skills to help people who were in trouble. The show took elements from popular spy films and private investigator shows and mixed them with gritty realism and violence. Now there’s a new feature film version of The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington as McCall and helmed by Antoine Fuqua, who directed Washington to his Best Actor Oscar for Training Day (2001). But despite the talent involved, The Equalizer ultimately never rises above being a solid but standard action thriller.

Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) is a man who believes he has put his violent past as a government operative behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But »

"Heard on the radio today some story I forgot my daughter at our hotel as I'm leaving for the airport. Are you kidding me?!?! Lol" Kim tweeted on Friday.

Rumors swirled that Kim nearly left her one-year-old baby behind in the hotel lobby, but she shot down these claims, writing, "I went to the car to make sure the car seat was in because the day before we had a car seat issue."

"Do you guys really think a 1year old would be inside the lobby by herself!" Kim continued. "Oh wait she was waiting to check out. Lol"

Universal's Halloween Horror Nights 24 review: Prepare for nightmares

3 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"Horror is a communal activity. People go to horror films in groups, with your friends. Every single tiny scare in a movie is usually followed by a laugh, that is a very important thing. An event like this fosters that."

Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights organiser Mike Aiello looks as excited as a schoolboy about to go trick or treating with The Rock as he chats to us about the 24th annual event.

Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world flock to the night of horrors each year, and the 24th run is as bloody and ballsy as ever.

This year's event features eight immersive houses, including sci-fi mashup Alien vs Predator and a maze dedicated to fear-inducing giggling clowns.

Each house is decked out in fine detail to resemble different themes, movies or TV franchises, while they are full of 'scareactors', men and women in surprisingly »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Film Review: ‘Good People’

26 September 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the proverbial suggestion of the title, bad things mostly happen to less-than-upstanding citizens in “Good People,” a capable crime caper that nonetheless disappoints, considering the flavorful talent involved. With off-kilter Danish genre specialist Henrik Ruben Genz (“Terribly Happy”) making his English-language debut from a script by “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” writer Kelly Masterson, it’d be reasonable to expect a few more blackened twists in the tale of a hard-up Yank couple (James Franco and Kate Hudson) dragged into the Cockney underworld after pocketing a stash of dirty money from their deceased tenant. Both stars are in agreeable if uncharacteristically muted form, doing little to distinguish Genz’s pic from any amount of formula-following filler in the same B-movie ballpark; commercially, “VOD People” is the more apt moniker for this multi-platform release.

If nothing else, “Good People” serves as a relatively novel entry in Franco’s »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Doctor Who, Finding Carter, The Mindy Project and The Mysteries of Laura!

1 | Couldn’t Bill Maher have gotten literally anyone else to introduce his Live From D.C. stand-up special, instead of subjecting us to Keith Olbermann and Michael Moore’s clunky commentary?

2 | On a scale of 1-to-“Blink,” was Doctor Who‘s “Listen” episode the sci-fi series’ best installment in years?

‘No Good Deed’ is undeserving of Idris Elba and Henson

12 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

No Good Deed

Written by Aimee Lagos and Directed by Sam Miller

U.S., 2014

At times while watching No Good Deed it feels like the film is a test to see just how much of a creeper Idris Elba can be while still being popular with audiences. He plays ex-con Colin Evans, a violent man who loves nothing more than to toy with women. If at first it seems odd that Idris Elba is playing the typical B-movie criminal, it’s because he isn’t just going through the motions. The man who stole the show in Pacific Rim and recreated an icon in Mandela deserves a little more credit than that.

No Good Deed was directed by Sam Miller of BBC’s Luther and he knows how to take typical archetypes and work them around his leading man. Memorable villains like Hannibal Lector and Patrick Bateman are all too common for white actors, »

John Candy stars in John Hughes' big-hearted comedy as the eponymous oaf who has to babysit his brother's kids: difficult teenager Tia (Jean Louisa Kelly), cute little Maizy (Gaby Hoffman), and the perpetually inquisitive Miles (a pre-Home Alone Macaulay Culkin). Candy's trademark grown-up-who-never-grew-up act provides the perfect launch pad for domestic chaos and some cracking banter, topped by Miles' quickfire interrogation about Buck's personal life. »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »
