Simmons added, “I could not be more excited having Caroline, Charlotte and the entire team at Mongrel stand behind our film. To be

'Bad Santa 2' Review: Sequel to Anti-Holiday Classic Isn't Worth the Tinsel
A lot can happen in 13 years: You can watch two wars start and finish; you can see social media platforms sprout up and change the public conversation; you can elect a country's first black president and its first orange one. What you apparently can't do, however, is teach an old dog like Willie Soke, the profane petty crook and several-leagues-less-than-jolly St. Nick for hire of Bad Santa, new tricks – or worse, make his old tricks somehow still seem appealing by default. For those of us who love Terry Zwigoff's

Lost In Space reboot: Raza Jaffrey joins the cast

Rob Leane Apr 3, 2017

Irwin Allen’s Lost In Space will be rebooted on Netflix. Raza Jaffrey is playing a politician named Victor...

Netflix is working on a remake of Irwin Allen's 1965 cult classic family sci-fi series Lost In Space. Collider confirmed last year that a full series of 10 episodes is on the way.

Today, we're hearing that Homeland, Elementary and Code Black alum Raza Jaffrey (pictured above) has joined the cast.

He'll play Victor, who's been described by Deadline Hollywood as "a career builder and politician from a young age. There is arrogance and impatience about him. All this masks the underlying fear that he’ll one day be found out — that he isn’t quite good enough."

15 Cult Movie Gems You Can Watch On Netflix

Gaumont

Netflix’s “Cult Films” section is peculiar in that it really doesn’t contain too many films you’d instantly think of when thinking about cinema’s true cult classics. There are definitely a few (as you’ll see), but for the most part the category is made up of films that are kind of cult by default: not quite classics, not insanely well-known or popular, but not obscure enough that they’re completely unheard of, either.

There’s no sign of The Big Lebowski, The Wicker Man, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Withnail and I, Harold and Maude – but there are films which are completely at odds with the very idea of a cult movie: Halloween 6, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, The House of Yes.

Of course, the term is diffuse – and people will certainly have their own criteria for defining a truly cult picture – but it

Irrational Man” is Woody Allen’s 47th film as director, an amazing output for an American filmmaker, and unlikely to be duplicated for mainstream releases in the future. He began with “What’s Up, Tiger Lily?” in 1966, won an Oscar for directing Annie Hall (1977) and has written or co-written every screenplay he has ever filmed. “Irrational Man” is another Woody Allen contemplative film, set on a college campus, regarding a philosophy professor (Joaquin Phoenix) who shakes himself out of a case of

Berlin: ’54’ Director’s Cut Restores 36 Minutes to Sexy Miramax Classic

When Mark Christopher’s “54” came out in the summer of 1998, the film had been so heavily reshot, re-edited and retooled that producer Dolly Hall took to calling it “55.”

Now, almost 17 years later, Christopher has finally managed to complete the version of “54” that everyone signed up to make in the first place: the story of three friends — a busboy (Ryan Phillippe), a bartender (Breckin Meyer) and a coat-check girl (Salma Hayek) — and the sordid love triangle that nearly tore them apart, set against the glittery excess of New York’s Studio 54 dance club. That was the version everyone shot, until a set of disastrous test screenings changed the film’s fate forever.

“It was a movie ahead of its time,” Christopher mused, his back to a giant screen on which a shirtless Phillippe stands bathed in blue light. He spoke to Variety at Chase Sound by Deluxe in Los Angeles, less

Redemption is coming for the Ryan Phillippe and Mike Myers drama '54'

  • Hitfix
Let's jump back in time to a little over 16 years ago. It's the summer of 1998 and if you hit a gay bar or club in the continental United States, you could not miss Stars on 54's dance remake of Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind." It was simply everywhere. The track was the promotional single for "54," a movie that promised a sexy look at the infamous New York City nightclub Studio 54 but couldn't ultimately live up to the marketing hype surrounding its release. The Miramax production was generating a ton of publicity because of its subject matter (one of the most legendary clubs of all-time), young up-and-coming stars such as Ryan Phillippe and Salma Hayek, the participation of Neve Campbell, who was coming off four straight hits (the first two "Screams," "The Craft" and "Wild Things"). Most buzzworthy of all, it was the first dramatic role for

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #45. Josh Hamilton (Take Me to the River)

Josh Hamilton: Book: Far From the Tree by Andrew Solomon. Record: The Clean — Anthology.

Movies: Dance of Reality and Two Days, One Night.

Lavallee: At this year’s Sundance, you’ve got a brief appearance in the Experimenter (working with a seasoned pro) but you find yourself (not unlike a “little” Sundance debut film called The House of Yes) working for a newbie. I was wondering if you could first describe your first impressions about Matt Sobel’s text, subtext, dialogue, themes and character set and if there is an added layer of profundity when you find yourself drawn to a project coming from a new voice?

Hamilton: When I first read Matt’s script, I was struck by the delicate yet unmistakable level of tension and unease that existed among these people. In any piece about families- where the layers

JFK and the Movies: 50 Years of Mythmaking

Like most Americans living today, I was born after November 22, 1963, so I don't remember John F. Kennedy and can't tell you where I was when news broke of his assassination. So here's what I know about the man, his presidency, and his death, thanks to the history professors of Hollywood.

Let me see if I have this right: JFK was a handsome man with the charisma of a movie star. (Indeed, he had connections to Hollywood through his father, a onetime movie producer; through his brother-in-law Peter Lawford and fellow Rat Packer Frank Sinatra; and through his torrid affair with Marilyn Monroe.) Through his youth, good looks, charisma, and forward-looking rhetoric, he inspired a nation to stop wearing hats, build rockets to the moon, and join the Peace Corps. His even more attractive, youthful, stylish, and patrician wife Jackie swept out the dowdy cobwebs of the Eisenhower years and turned

Mean Girls Director Will Helm Vampire Academy Movie

Since he made his directorial debut in 1997 with the dark and demented comedy The House of Yes, Mark Waters has shown a flare for unfolding tales about sassy and at times dangerous young women. Best known for helming the adored 2004 comedy Mean Girls, it's hardly surprising that he's been selected to direct Blood Sisters, the first in Reliance Entertainment and Im Global's Vampire Academy franchise. Variety reports Blood Sisters will be a family affair as Waters will direct the script penned by his brother, Dan Waters, screenwriter of another biting comedy about teen girls, 1988's Heathers. Based on the six-book Vampire Academy Ya series, the film will have elements of romance and the paranormal. But with the Waters brothers on board, I suspect a dark vein of comedy will likewise run through Blood Sisters. The story focuses on the teens of St. Vladimir's Academy, a place where young vampires

Price Check | Review

Not the Bargain It Appears To Be

Price Check, director Michael Walker’s sophomore feature, coming twelve years after his 2000 debut, Chasing Sleep is a complete 180 from his first film. Whereas Walker’s first foray was in the psychological art house, this latest feature is a comedic character study that has one delectable asset that is both the sole reason to see the film, and also, sadly, what viciously outshines every other aspect of the film; and that’s a wickedly perfect role for Parker Posey.

Eric Mabius stars as Pete Cozy, a disinterested employee in regional pricing and marketing for a flagging grocery store company in Long Island. Having given up a career in producing music, Pete’s job supports his stay at home wife and their new child. When his boss suddenly leaves for bigger and better things, his replacement is a super motivated force of nature, Susan

Parker Posey is delightfully crazy in this trailer and poster for the indie flick Price Check

  • JoBlo
Parker Posey, the rather elusive actress who first hit most people's radar with Richard Linklater's Dazed And Confused, has bounced around Hollywood, sticking close to her indie roots, while toying with bigger ventures (Blade: Trinity for one).  From Party Girl to The House Of Yes, Posey has seemed to find a niche, which revolves around the quirky female lead and it's worked for her.  And, it looks like she's following suit with Price Check, another off-beat character role...

First Trailer for Price Check Starring Parker Posey and Eric Mabius

Director Michael Walker's Price Check screened earlier this year as part of the 2012 Sundance Premieres line-up.  Now you can get a look at the trailer for the film.  Starring Parker Posey (The House of Yes) as a pricing/marketing executive for a grocery chain, Price Check follows her relationship with an employee (Eric Mabius) who gives into her temptation at the cost of his family life.  This trailer is all over the place and Posey comes off as a bit unhinged, which is my least favorite kind of Posey.  Mabius simply seems at a loss for how to handle the material but perhaps that's what his role calls for.  Hit the jump to check it out for yourself. Here's the first trailer for Price Check.  Click over to Yahoo! to view in HD: Check out the official synopsis for Price Check below: A husband and father with plenty of
