10 of geek cinema's more curious quirks of fate

22 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a light-hearted look at a few of the more strange coincidences and quirks of fate in recent cinema history...

Top 10

Stories are often built on coincidences and happenstance. Chance encounters at railway stations. Bruce Willis bumping into Ving Rhames while he's out and about in his Honda in Pulp Fiction. But what about those weird patterns we see in our everyday reality, or, more to the point, in cinema history?

When Batman Begins came out, it was widely noted that Christian Bale had already played an unfathomably rich man with a secret double life before, in Mary Harron's adaptation of American Psycho. Bale's character, Patrick Bateman, even has a surname that's basically Batman with an 'e' added to it.

Those are the kinds of strange quirks of fate we're looking at here. If you have any of your own, do share them in the comments section.

Alec Baldwin in talks to join Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 5

10 July 2014 12:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Variety, Alec Baldwin (30 Rock, Blue Jasmine) is in talks to join Mission: Impossible 5. His mission, if he chooses to accept it, is to play a high-ranking CIA officer to oversee Tom Cruise’s division, similar to the role played by Laurence Fishburne (Hannibal, The Matrix) in Mission: Impossible III

All other details about the film have been kept under wraps, though we should likely hear more news soon as it begins production in August for a December 25, 2015 release date. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), the film stars Tom Cruise, Rebecca Furguson (The White Queen), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Jeremy Renner (The Avengers), Simon Pegg (The World’s End) and Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction).

We’ll have more news about Mission: Impossible 5 as it develops.

On The Tonight Show on Tuesday, Glee star Chris Colfer joined Jimmy Fallon and Halle Berry for a heated game of charades. The actor went on to explain last week's social media confusion over whether he was leaving the Fox musical. "My Twitter got hacked and it sucked. I think it was a hacker or software broker. I was on a plane coming back form London and I had no WiFi, so it definitely wasn't me."

Kevin Smith says the Weinsteins passed on 'Clerks 3,' still plans to make it

8 July 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Kevin Smith has been working hard on Clerks 3 for a couple years now, although the project has transformed from a potential Broadway stage experience to a potential old-fashioned movie film for theaters. Smith also initially mused that Clerks 3 would be his last movie–an announcement which, following to the Soderbergh Rule of Auteur Retirement, precipitated a creative period during which Smith claims to have finished five scripts.

There were some theories that the Clerks threequel would be finished in time for the 20th anniversary of the original film, which arrived in theaters in October 1994 (the same month as Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption). However, »

Sylvester Stallone Highlights A Huge Bizarre Cast In Trailer For Reach Me

7 July 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Above is the trailer for Reach Me, starring a spectacular direct-to-dvd cast if anyone's ever seen one. This Millennium Films production packs in the Millennium Films all-stars in a story about a self-help guru who has vanished, leaving behind a book that has changed the lives of an all-star ensemble of actors. Reach Me comes from writer-director John Herzfeld, and considering the life-affirming angle of the trailer, that's a bit bizarre. Herzfeld has made a few pretty nasty movies, none moreso than 15 Minutes, which relies on the novelty of Robert De Niro being tied to a chair and tortured to death. His debut was the ill-advised John Travolta romance Two of A Kind back in the '80s, and his sporadic theatrical work has sent him to television in recent years. His greatest achievement, however, may have been giving Charlize Theron her first standout role in the Pulp Fiction wannabe »

Happy 20th Anniversary: 8 Reasons Why 'Forrest Gump' Is Actually Terrible

6 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy anniversary? Think again. "Forrest Gump" was released in theaters 20 years ago today, and the only thing more shocking than the fact that it beat out "Pulp Fiction" for the Best Picture Oscar is that it's actually not the heartwarming classic you've been brainwashed into believing it was. No, but I love "Forrest Gump," you may be thinking to yourself at this very moment. Uh, no, correction. You don't love it. You are a victim of mass hysteria. Now cast off the bonds of inculcation as we list eight solid reasons why "Forrest Gump" is actually a terrible and - dare we say it - anti-American work of Hollywood propaganda. If you're still not convinced after clicking through the gallery below, then we have news for you: you're probably a terrorist. Follow Riot on Twitter »

'Forrest Gump' turns 20: The movie's secret best moments

6 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s strange to feel sheepish about loving a film that won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture—a critical and commercial smash that earned nearly $700 million at the global box office and has been chosen for preservation in the National Film Archive.

And yet: Exactly two decades after its release, calling Forrest Gump one of your favorite movies is an act bound to raise eyebrows, provided you’re talking to anyone who fancies herself a film buff. Most anti-Gumpers resent the movie more for what it isn’t than what it is; as they’ll be the first to remind you, »

Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems

5 July 2014 8:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When mixing black and white movie characters as either friends or foes on the big screen should not produce any gray areas at all. Whether amiable or adversarial the pairing of interracial tandems makes for an interesting sociological study in cinema where tension, togetherness, stereotypical profiling and mutual or reluctant acceptance makes for some captivating film fodder.

Sure, in many ways it is an overused cliched in the movies to produce racial tandems for the sake of the entertainment to allow the creative juices to overflow. In Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems we will take a look at various “salt and pepper” teams as they come together in the name of law and justice, hostile necessity, friendly frivolity or professional attachment to bring movie audiences a sense of adventure and curiosity in the name of comedic or dramatic license.

2 July 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Tammy Review

1 July 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bridesmaids, Identity Thief, The Heat. For the last three years, Hollywood’s most-anticipated comedy output has become synonymous with Melissa McCarthy’s foul-mouthed, arrogant loser schtick. This summer’s offering, Tammy, penned by McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone – who takes on directorial duties – carries on her commitment to wringing the humour from the ridiculous circumstances of unlucky schlubs.

Whereas Bridesmaids and The Heat rewrote the rules of convention for women in comedy, Tammy prefers to trot a familiar path. Another frumpy Midwesterner, Tammy can’t catch a break. Her rustbucket Corolla is totalled. She’s fired from her job. Her boyfriend is dining the classy waif from next door. This trifecta of blows provide the catalyst for the down-trodden ex-fast food employee to get out of dodge. Penniless, there’s only one escape route: with her sexaholic, alcoholic grandma Pearl (Susan Sarandon), eager to offer up her car and $6,700 on one condition. »

A Dozen Awesome Movies That Celebrate What's Great About America

1 July 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

When it comes to America, the values, the principles, and ideals that we strive for are great. Freedom, liberty, truth, justice, happiness and the right stand up against tyranny are ideas that we can all believe in... but what about the stuff? The tangible things that distinguish this great nation from others are worth taking note of as well. That’s why we’re taking a moment, in honor of our great nation, to say “Thanks” to the movies that celebrate uniquely American cultural artifacts.

Hot Dogs — Father of the Bride

Bread has been around for tens of thousands of years and sausage too has been around for a couple millenia, but it was only in America that a hot dog could be created. And only an American comedy legend like Steve Martin could bring to the big screen the hot dog conundrum that has perplexed us all.

Willis, Cusack, and Patric in ‘The Prince’ Poster

30 June 2014 11:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Courtesy of ComingSoon we have a brand new poster for The PrinceJason Patric seeks vengeance against Jason Patric in the latest film from direct-to-video action director Brian A Miller. After his daughter is kidnapped by a former rival assassin, Patric must take matters into his own hands. It may sound kind of familiar but who doesn’t love a simple plot? The cast is also nice and diverse with Willis and Patric joined by John Cusack, rapper 50 Cent, Korean pop star Rain. No doubt Willis’ appearance is exaggerated by his prominence on the poster, as he reportedly only spent 5 days on set, and who can blame the producers when he demands $1,000,000 a day for shooting. But it came at a price after Cusack accidentally punched Willis in the face which reportedly did not go down well.

Miller’s films have been fun so far, but this does highlight Willis »

'Into the Storm' Trailer: Beware the Tornadoes of Fire (Video)

List Mania

25 June 2014 7:21 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Two interesting lists came out in the past couple of days which are worth discussing / poring over / loving deeply / fuming at for various reasons.

Three Lgbt Films I'm Always Wishing More People Had Seen. Paris is Burning (#3), Lilies (#64), and Show Me Love (#168)

• The Advocate crowd-sourced the 175 Essential Lgbt Movies list which is a mix of non gay movies that gays love and actual queer films. Brokeback Mountain (2005) tops the list and the top ten is really cool and varied though it's obviously skewing toward historically important cinematic breakthroughs (regardless of quality) which I suppose explains the high ranking of Philadelphia (1993) which is not a good movie and so so timid and Making Love (1982), just outside the top ten which is interesting and way less timid than many movies which came after it (how's that for an odd turn of events) but it's also stiffly made. I've seen all but 34 of »
