We're continuing to dig deep into the archive of old movie promo shots and behind the scenes imagery (you'll find links to other examples down at the bottom there), and this time, we've uncovered some pictures from the making of Paul Verhoeven's all-time classic, RoboCop.
The 1987 movie was a technical test and a half for Verhoeven and his team, and whilst we don't have an abundance of imagery from the film, we think you might like what we've found. It's six shots, one or two of which showcase the level of practical effects work on the movie.
As ever, keep letting us know if you want to see more features of this ilk. In the meantime, click on the gallery widget to load up the pictures. »
We've uncovered a bunch of rare-ish shots from behind the scenes of 1984's Ghostbusters...
We've been back digging through the archives of press shots and rarely seen stills, and this time, we've come up with a bunch of pictures from behind the scenes of the first Ghostbusters film, from back in 1984.
The movie, of course, starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts, with Ivan Reitman directing. And whilst we think you may have seen some of these shots before, there were certainly some that we hadn't seen ourselves, and others we'd not cast our peepers on for a long, long time.
As always, let us know if you want us to keep doing posts of this ilk. For now though, to see the images, just click on the gallery above...

Oh, Michael Keaton! We know how much you love Batman. And we're truly sorry you never got to portray Bruce Wayne in another Tim Burton sequel. But is the Dark Knight really the best superhero ever? That's what the Birdman actor is claiming. But it all might just be a ruse to get journalists to stop asking him about the character, which he last played 23 years ago in 1992's Batman Returns.
Michael Keaton was nominated for his role as a washed-up superhero actor in last year's Birdman. And it's obvious that he has a lot of affinity for the genre. But one thing he can't stand seeing is a superhero cry. Visiting The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he regaled the host with a story about how he went to the store got get his iPhone fixed. The clerk helping him was transfixed by The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was »
In that post, we asked if anyone was interested if we went hunting for more archive images for similar posts. Enough people said yes, so here we are.
This time, we've found a few official press snaps from behind the scenes of the peerless Back To The Future. The movie, which is available now on DVD, Blu-ray, streaming and probably still VHS somewhere, is of course 30 years old now.
And if you click on the gallery at the top, you can find the pictures that we've managed to discovered.

Gotham, Season 2, Episode 8, “Tonight’s the Night”
Written by Jim Barnes
Directed by Jeffrey Hunt
Airs Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox
Following the closing moments of “Mommy’s Little Monster”, Gordon had put the pieces together that Galavan was, in fact, responsible for the chaos that Gotham had endured in recent months, a reveal which then forced Galavan to move forward with his plans to convince Bruce to hand over Wayne Enterprises and to activate Barbara to take out Gordon. Throughout the season it has been clear that Galavan had been reluctant to kill Gordon up until now; part of it is explained as him not wanting to upset Bruce before making his plea for Wayne Enterprises and the other part is that he was saving him for Barbara. Finally, today is the day that Barbara is unleashed and her showdown with Gordon is as fun as is to be expected. »

Back in the days when the internet was something that already over-stretched movie marketing departments didn't have to have daily meetings about, imagery for new films came in the form of physical stills. Remember them? There was also something of a more informal feel about some of them, as these archive stills from Tim Burton's Batman and Batman Returns demonstrate.
We thought, therefore, you might like to see these.
These are all official behind the scenes press stills that were issues for Tim Burton's pair of Batman movies. Granted, they've still all been signed off by a posh marketing department, but we figure it's not just us that likes perusing images such as these, so we've gathered them altogether.
One thing: if hunting down archive stills of older movies »
After announcing a list of contenders for lifetime achievement honors at the upcoming Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards, the organization has announced that make-up artist Ve Neill and hair stylist Yolanda Toussieng will be the ones to have their careers toasted.
“The bodies of work of Ve Neill and Yolanda Toussieng are legendary, and we are proud to rank them among the best in the history of our profession,” said Susan Cabral-Ebert, President of Iatse Local 706. “They are extraordinary artists and accomplished leaders in the industry, and it is our pleasure to name them as this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award recipients.”
It’s a serendipitous pairing as both Neill and Toussieng won Oscars for their work on “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Ed Wood” and they have worked together frequently on films like “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Batman Returns.” They also both won Daytime Emmys for their work with »

Earlier this year, New York City's Lincoln Center held a concert titled Danny Elfman's Music From the Films of Tim Burton, which highlighted suites of the fantastical scores that the composer has created for the imaginative director. One of their best-known collaborations remains the brassy, triumphant main theme in Batman, which the Philharmonia Orchestra of New York performs in the above video, a clip from PBS' Live From Lincoln Center, which will air Friday. Close-ups of Burton's sketches for the movie's characters flash in the background.

Gotham, Season 2, Episode 05, “Scarification”
Written by Jordan Harper
Directed by Bill Eagles
Airs Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox
The season continues to build this week as the Gcpd make good on their mission to go after The Penguin and his crime organization with the newly created Strike Force. The team get their first big win hitting The Penguin in his wallet hard, but unbeknownst to them there is a looming evil that is implementing a plan just above The Penguin and he’s looking to send a message to the Gotham elitists whom have wronged his family name.
While the Gcpd go after The Penguin, Galavan has been targeting Wayne Enterprises, the family that corrupted his legacy during the inception of the city. We learn, through a newly-introduced historian named Edwige, that there were five high society families that begat Gotham. Although this episode does very little to move the momentum of the season, »

Samuel Brace on the DC Bad Movie Myth…
There is a lie that is being perpetuated, a myth if you will, a myth tinged with vitriol that DC makes bad movies, exclusively bad movies, and that the new DC Extended Universe needs to save both them and their reputation. Time and time again it is being said that Batman v Superman Needs to be great because of the films that have come before it, that this is almost a last chance saloon for Batman and crew. This quite frankly makes no sense. Batman v Superman needs to be great — whatever you decide that means — because it needs to compete with a market that is saturated by competitors. That’s just how it is. It has nothing to do with a history of bad content. When it comes to this particular falsehood that has been created, the proof is in the pudding. »

ABC Family has announced the full lineup for its annual "13 Nights of Halloween" celebration, and its offerings of both kid- and adult-friendly fare signify that it's already beginning its transition into its upcoming rebranded network, Freeform.
The schedule includes perennial favorites like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1," "Hocus Pocus," and "The Addams Family," which appeal to tweens and teens alike, along with flicks to attract a younger crowd, including "Frankenweenie," "Monsters University," and "Toy Story Of Terror!"
But the more-adult movies -- aimed at that so-called "becomer" demographic of viewers in their late 20s and early 30s -- begin late at night, and wouldn't have been caught dead on ABC Family's schedule before. These new flicks -- including Johnny Depp's "Sleepy Hollow," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and the original "Poltergeist" -- clearly signify the shift to Freeform, and should hopefully attract the audience that the network craves. »

The cast of Gotham made their second appearance at New York Comic-Con this weekend! During the Nycc panel, Robin Taylor announced that Paul Reubens has signed on to play Oswald Cobblepot's father, Tucker Cobblepot. Ironically, this will be the second time the actor has played this role, after his appearance as The Penguin's father in the 1992 movie Batman Returns. While it hasn't been confirmed when The Penguin's dad will make his debut, Robin Taylor revealed during the panel that he will pop up very soon.
"He will be showing up very soon. Pee-Wee Herman is playing my dad! What the hell? Oh my god!"
Emmy Award winner Paul Reubens created the iconic character "Pee-wee Herman" while a member of the famed Los Angeles improv group The Groundlings. The live stage production "The Pee-wee Herman Show" premiered in 1981, followed by the hit film Pee-wee's Big Adventure and TV series Pee-wee's Playhouse, »
Twenty-three years after he first originated the role of the Penguin's father in Tim Burton's "Batman Returns," Paul Reubens will once again portray Poppa Cobblepot on Fox's "Batman" prequel series, "Gotham."
Actor Robin Lord Taylor, who plays Oswald Cobblepot, a.k.a. the Penguin, on the show, revealed the news himself during a "Gotham" panel at New York Comic Con this weekend. Here's the scoop, per Entertainment Weekly:
"So we're all familiar with Oswald's mother, the fabulous, fabulous Carol Kane," the actor said leading up to the news. "We don't know a lot about his father... We just found out that I do have a father. And he will be showing up very soon, and he will be played by none other than Paul Reubens, a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman! He's playing my dad! What! The! Hell!"

Penguin's dad is Pee-Wee Herman. Paul Reubens will play dad to Robin Lord Taylor on Gotham this season. Paul Reubens and Carol Kane? What a delightfully wacky family. "Big news: Paul Reubens will be playing Penguin's father in @Gotham," Taylor tweeted. "Unreal. I have the best tv parents. Legends." Reubens' casting was announced by Taylor at New York Comic Con. And fans with knowledge of Batman movie and TV lore know this isn't the first time Reubens has played papa to the Batman villain, he previously appeared as Penguin's father in the 1992 flick Batman Returns. That Penguin was of course played by the iconic Danny DeVito. Reubens recent TV credits include The Blacklist, »
Gotham fans, get ready to meet someone possibly even more deranged than Oswald Cobblepot: his father. As revealed over the weekend at New York Comic-Con, Paul Reubens has been cast to play The Penguin’s dad in the Fox drama. “Pee-wee Herman is playing my dad,” The Penguin himself, Robert Lord Taylor, announced Sunday. While Reubens is most well-known for playing Pee-wee, he has appeared on a couple different TV series in recent years, including Portlandia, The Blacklist, and Comedy Bang! Bang!. Also, interestingly enough, this will not be the actor’s first time playing the father of The Penguin, as he first took on the role in 1992’s Batman Returns. In addition to Reubens’ casting, a six-minute sizzle reel for Gotham at New York Comic-Con this weekend, and while the first half is essentially just a recap of this season’s first few episodes, the second half features some all-new footage, »
