5 Other Movie Franchises That Crashed Onto Television

21 July 2016 5:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

News this week came in that the final planned Divergent Series movie would be skipping the theaters and go direct to television/DVD.  It’s a rare move for such a major studio franchise to make, and it got me to thinking about other movie series that fizzled and did the same.  Come inside to check out a history of downward sliding franchises! 

If I come off sounding a bit harsh about all this, it’s mostly due to the fact that it’s such a bizarre situation.  It’s been awhile since a studio franchise had to dropped down to direct-to-television and it’s not a good thing.  Sure, Lionsgate is trying to spin the information that it’s part of a planned way to jumpstart a spin-off TV series...but the reality is this isn’t how they wanted The Divergent Series to end.  

It’s a failure, »

Mila Kunis Calls Ex Macaulay Culkin's Fans 'Abnormal': 'They Didn't Know How to React' to Him

20 July 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

While Mila Kunis is used to the attention that comes with being a celebrity, she maintains that ex Macaulay Culkin has to deal with a much different - and more intense - breed of fame. During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday, the Bad Moms star told the host that during her eight-year relationship with the Home Alone star, she watched him encounter "abnormal" fans. "He was huge so you couldn't walk down the street with him," she explained of the early years of their romance, which began in 2001. "He always had this weird [attraction]; fans would just scream »

Macaulay Culkin Slams Tabloids Over Heroin Addiction Reports

19 July 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Child star Macaulay Culkin has disappeared from Hollywood’s spotlight, but there’s one thing he wants the world to know — he’s not a heroin addict. “I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever,” the “Home Alone” star told The Guardian. “The thing that bugged me was tabloids wrapping it all in this weird guise of concern. No, you’re trying to shift papers.” Culkin has been acting since the age of four and the obsession with his life hasn’t died down much since then.

Macaulay Culkin: "I Was Not Pounding Six Grand of Heroin Every Month"

19 July 2016 5:39 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Macaulay Culkin has emerged from his notoriously private life to put the rumors to rest.  "No, I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever," the 35-year-old former child star declared to The Guardian.  Despite being a fixture of the silver screen throughout the early 1990s with pop culture classics like Home AloneMy Girl and Richie Rich, Culkin retreated from the spotlight by the time he was just 14. Despite resurfacing for projects scattered throughout the next decade, the actor never returned to quite the level of stardom he had achieved as an adolescent. Still, his seclusion from Hollywood, an arrest for drug possession, a two-year teenage »

Ansel Elgort’s “Home Alone” Isn’t His Strongest Release

12 July 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I wouldn’t include NYC-based Ansel Elgort in the list of actors-turned-DJs who disingenuously sought to capitalize on the Edm craze, but his new song almost makes me think otherwise. “Home Alone” marks his first release under his real name, but this is one of those rare cases in which I would have recommended that he share the track through an anthropomorphic junk food alter ego instead.

Home Alone” comes across as an attempt to ride the fine line between melodic trap and future bass – but from an artist who seemingly lacks the production expertise necessary for either. Lyrically, it sounds like the official anthem of overly sensitive guys who are trying to find a girl to bring home from the bar after the first and second-string picks have already left.

Elgort has typically released songs under the stage name Ansolo – or, in the case of his Pierce Fulton collaborations, »

Ansel Elgort's "Home Alone" Might Be the Song of the Summer

8 July 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Did Ansel Elgort just deliver the song of the summer? That's what many of his fans are asking after the 22-year-old-actor released "Home Alone" via SoundCloud at midnight Friday. The track serves as his vocal debut, which he wrote and produced himself. The song was released under his full name, rather than that of his musical alter ego, DJ Ansolo. "I'm so excited to begin this journey with you all," the Divergent actor tweeted after its release. Elgort's fans are listening to his electronic entry on repeat. "Dude This Is Awesome!" one listener wrote on SoundCloud. Another fan admitted, "I wasn't expecting this to be that good." "Home Alone" will be »

Watch: Macaulay Culkin Gets Taken for a Ride by Meerkats (Literally) in His Return to Television for British Ad Campaign

8 July 2016 9:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Despite calling himself "retired" from the business that made him famous by age 10, Macaulay Culkin has returned to the small screen for a cheeky British commercial. The Home Alone star pokes fun at his early fame in a Meerkat Movies commercial featuring Compare the Market's adorable animated meerkats, Aleksandr and Sergei. In the clip, Aleksandr and Sergei are on a road trip that's missing one thing: the family dynamic that comes with a child's presence. "That's why I invite child star Macaulay Culkin to complete the family dynamic," Aleksandr reveals to Sergei. When they pick up their new comrade, however, »

From ‘The Bfg’ to ‘Matilda’: How 5 Roald Dahl Books Landed on the Big Screen

29 June 2016 4:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roald Dahl famously loathed all the movie adaptations of his books, including the 1971 classic “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” starring Gene Wilder. So when the beloved author died in 1990, his widow Felicity (who goes by Liccy) was torn about what to do with his catalogue. It was a time, following the hit comedy “Home Alone,” where the major studios were vigorously chasing family-friendly tales, and many of Dahl’s stories fit the bill. But Liccy didn’t want celebrated bestsellers such as “Matilda” or “James and the Giant Peach” falling into the wrong hands.

Dahl’s publisher at Penguin Books set up a few meetings, and she eventually connected with literary agent Michael Siegel. They bonded right away. “I don’t want there to be bad movies,” Liccy told him. They came up with an unorthodox, boutique approach. “Rather than sell the stories directly to the studios, we would »

9 great modern B-movie directors

28 June 2016 9:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tim George Jul 14, 2016

They might not be at the level of John Carpenter or Wes Craven yet, but meet the directors who are keeping the B-movie flag flying...

B-Movies. Exploitation flicks. Genre cinema. Someone has to make them, and here is a list compiling the best of the today’s crop of filmmakers who are unabashed in their love of genres, and have honed their talents producing enjoyable and sometimes great B-Movies. While all the movies they make may not be great, do not dismiss them. The seeds of great things are contained in their filmographies, and it would come as no surprise if one or two of these guys are able to attain the same heights as luminaries like Hill, Carpenter, Craven and Corman.

Jaume Collet-Serra

One of the most consistent directors of mid level Hollywood genre fare, Collet-Serra has quietly turned into a solid genre filmmaker without too »

AFI Honoree John Williams Looks Back on Six Decades of Iconic Themes

9 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star Wars.” “E.T.” “Jaws.” “Indiana Jones.” “Superman.” “Harry Potter.”

Admit it: You can’t think of any one of those films without hearing the score in your head.

John Williams, who wrote all those classic themes [and dozens more] will receive the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award on June 9 from frequent collaborator Steven Spielberg. It will be the first such honor given to a composer in the 44-year history of the award.

“This man’s gifts echo, quite literally, through all of us, around the world and across generations,” says AFI president-ceo Bob Gazzale. “There’s not one person who hasn’t heard this man’s work, who hasn’t felt alive because of it. That’s the ultimate impact of an artist.”

Over six decades in Hollywood, Williams has written some of the most memorable music in movie history. His 100-plus features have earned 50 Academy Award nominations [making him the most-nominated living person] and he’s won five times. »

Intruders Blu Ray Review: ‘Home Alone with added Saw traps’

6 June 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Intruders tells the twisting and morally ambiguous story of Anna (Beth Riesgraf), a young agoraphobic who finds herself the victim of a home invasion. However, once the trio of intruders invade her family home Anna reveals herself to be much more than the expected victim as she turns the tables on her tormentors.

What starts out as a simple cat and mouse story as Anna hides from the intruders becomes something much more interesting. This is a film that zigs where so many others would just zag and the new take is welcome and refreshing. The choice to have Anna as something other than the expected victim is also highly appreciated. Without wishing to spoil too much of the events, Anna may suffer from agoraphobia, but she’s definitely made her home a castle. Imagine if Kevin McCallister grew up obsessed with fortifying his home and you’re along the »

Hello Games has confirmed No Man’s Sky has been delayed until August this year, which hasn’t gone well with some gamers...

It can’t be easy being a game developer at the best of times, but we can only guess at the kind of rollercoaster ride Hello Games’ boss Sean Murray has been on over the past few years. The indie studio’s forthcoming space sim No Man’s Sky has brought with it a level of anticipation that its tiny team of designers couldn’t have predicted, as writers and videogame fans have excitedly latched onto the promise of its huge virtual universe.

No Man’s Sky was originally due for release in June, but rumours began to circulate that it was to be delayed following a leaked bit of info from Gamestop. Murray has since confirmed that delay, stating that its European release »

No Man’s Sky Pushed To August, Hello Games Reveals Backlash Resulted In “Loads” Of Death Threats

30 May 2016 7:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Initially pegged to descend on Earth’s orbit in little over a month’s time, developer Hello Games has formally confirmed plans to postpone the release of No Man’s Sky to August 9 in North America.

Word of the delay first surfaced over the weekend, when Studio Founder and Designer Sean Murray took to PlayStation Blog to offer a status report on the new IP, revealing that as the team approached the original deadline of June 21, it became readily apparent that No Man’s Sky was in need of “extra polish” to bring it closer to internal standards.

Per Ps Blog:

The game really has come together, and it’s such an incredible relief. As we sit an play it now, and as I watch playtesters every day, I can finally let myself get excited. We’re actually doing this. However, as we approached our final deadlines, we realized that »

Macaulay Culkin: 'Aladdin is a passion project'

10 May 2016 8:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The former star of Home Alone stars in a surreal stoner version of the Arabian Nights tale masterminded by his musician friend Adam Green

Anyone raised on the Disney version of Aladdin may be surprised by Adam Green’s take on the Arabian Nights tale. Green, who rose to fame as one half of the early 2000s indie-rock band the Moldy Peaches, has created an acid-dipped retelling of Aladdin set in a papier-mache world, ruled by a sultan played by painter Francesco Clemente, with a princess that Green describes as “kind of like a Kardashian”, and a magic lamp outfitted with a 3D printer.

Green stars as the titular character, alongside Natasha Lyonne, former child star Macaulay Culkin, Alia Shawkat, Zoe Kravitz, Devendra Banhart and the Moldy Peaches’ guitarist Jack Dishel who plays a hilarious double role. Along with them are many more actors and musicians romping through a cartoon »
