Spy caper Kingsman: The Golden Circle still on top as Flatliners flatlines

3 October 2017 6:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Horror adaptation It remains second ahead of Goodbye Christopher Robin, while Spice World: The Movie gets a nostalgia UK screening

Declining a relatively slim 32% in its second frame, Kingsman: The Golden Circle added another £4.19m at the weekend in the UK for a 12-day tally of £15.6m. That compares with £8.25m for predecessor Kingsman: The Secret Service after two weekends of play. The original Kingsman film went on to achieve a lifetime total of £16.6m in the UK, so The Golden Circle is only £1m behind it. Director Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass maxed out at £11.8m, Stardust at £15.0m, and X-Men: First Class at £15.1m, so The Golden Circle is a dead cert to become his biggest ever UK hit. (The Golden Circle is also ahead of films that Vaughn produced but didn’t direct such as Snatched and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.)

Spice World: the feminist movie? When girl power hit the big screen

27 September 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It ditched male charmers and knocked the Bechdel test out of the park. Two decades on, the Spice Girls’ film looks like a brilliant gateway to the F-word

I’m pretty sure that when my dad took me and my best friend to see Spice World: The Movie in 1997, it was for a quiet life rather than to make a point about female identity. Although for the record I always respected his favourite Spice Girl – Sporty – as being the thinking man’s choice. But, for all its stereotyping and campy scenarios, perhaps the trip did have more to offer an 11-year-old girl than just a fun afternoon and salted popcorn.

For one thing, I suspect it was the first film I saw that knocked the Bechdel test out of the park – it’s packed with female-centric conversations and barely touches on men, even less in a romantic context. The closest »

Kingsman: The Golden Circle review: Dir. Matthew Vaughn (2017)

20 September 2017 4:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kingsman The Golden Circle review: Matthew Vaughn aims this A-list heavy action/comedy/adventure at the screen, a sequel to 2015’s runaway success Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Kingsman The Golden Circle review by Paul Heath.

Kingsman The Golden Circle review

There’s an indication as to whether a film will be any good or not, in my own books anyway, that if it features any kind of song written or performed by Elton John, it will be a runaway success; a sure-fire hit, and most of all, an enjoyable journey. With Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to 2015’s runaway success Kingsman: The Secret Service, Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman have gone a step further and put the rock-god into the film – his first acting role since 1997’s Spiceworld.

My quality indicator has finally been proven to be wrong.

This is not to say that Kingsman: The Golden Circle »

It's Been 17 Years Since the Spice Girls Split, but They're All Still Doing Big Things

30 August 2017 4:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Spice Girls exploded onto the scene in 1996 with their hit "Wannabe" and introduced millions of impressionable young minds (including mine) to five-part harmonies, Union Jack minidresses, platform sneakers, and the term "girl power." The members - Melanie Brown, Victoria Adams, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Melanie Chisholm - drew you in with their distinctive personas and subsequently caused fights with your friends about who got to be who. Ohh, the memories! The Spice Girls was my first concert ever. I had all five of the dolls and owned Spice World on VHS, and I can very vividly recall bawling my eyes out at the news that Geri Halliwell, Ginger Spice (neé Sexy Spice), was leaving the group in 1998. I've definitely grown up since then (at least, I hope), but what are the Spice Girls up to these days? Well, some of them are still making music, while others are »

Spice Up Your Life With These Iconic Moments From Your Fave '90s Girl Band

30 August 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Did you make up choreography to "Wannabe" when you were a preteen? Did you throw around a lot of peace signs and scream about girl power? Did you wish you were British because your favorite band was from the UK? If you can answer yes to any of those, you might have just been a Spice Girls fan, and if you're me, you might still be a Spice Girls fan. The ultrasuccessful girl group from England, consisting of Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), exploded onto the music scene in the late '90s and gave us some of the songs we remember most fondly from our childhoods. What you may not remember is that the height of their career was very short-lived: their first single came out in 1996 and they had split shortly after the new millennium. »

You'll Never Listen to the Spice Girls's "Wannabe" the Same Way Again After This

30 August 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Remember when you were a kid and you would spend hours in front of the mirror singing the Spice Girls's "Wannabe" at the top of your lungs with your friends? (No judgment if you still do.) Well, it turns out the catchy pop song is about more than just friendship never ending. One of the track's cowriters spoke to the Daily Star back in December 2015 and revealed the explicit meaning behind the 1996 hit. Related15 Times Spice World Spoke to You as a Grown-Ass, Functioning Adult According to the insider, the famous line "Zig-a-zig-ah" was inspired by the phrase "Sh*t and cigars," which has to do with the Shoreditch, London, studio the girls shared with bands like Orbital and the Chemical Brothers.

The Story of How the Spice Girls Came to Be Will Make You Believe in Fate

30 August 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Let's be real: whenever we think of '90s girls bands, we automatically think of the Spice Girls. The girl group, which was made up of Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), was one of the bestselling girl bands of all time and is responsible for making "girl power" a rallying cry for fans everywhere. But how exactly did the Spice Girls come to be? It's quite old school, actually: through a newspaper ad. Related15 Times Spice World Spoke to You as a Grown-Ass, Functioning Adult Geri penned an essay for Marie Claire back in July 2016 in which she explained how the girl group formed by way of a newspaper ad placed by two managers in 1994.

The '90s were an epic decade when it came to pop culture. While 90210 was steaming up your TV screens and inflatable chairs were taking over your bedroom, chances are the Spice Girls were blasting on the radio.

15 Times Spice World Spoke to You as a Grown-Ass, Functioning Adult

7 July 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Here's the story from A to Z: Spice World is one of the most iconic films of all time. The movie, which turns a whopping 20 years old this year (can you believe it was first released in 1997?!), has so many standout moments that we don't even know where to begin. While the Spice Girls instilled girl power in us basically from the very first time we heard "Wannabe," the movie took things to a whole new level. We have Melanie Brown ("Scary Spice"), Melanie Chisholm ("Sporty Spice"), Emma Bunton ("Baby Spice"), Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice"), and Victoria Beckham ("Posh Spice") to thank for that. Rainbow robes? Check. Dancing in a club? Check. Posh's hilarious one-liners? Check. Keep reading to see all the times the '90s movie still relates to you today.

Geri Halliwell Says She Looked 'Like a Drag Queen' During Her Spice Girls Days

21 June 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Spice Girls will forever be one of the greatest girl groups of all time. Like The Supremes, TLC, or Destiny’s Child, these ladies were a musical force to be reckoned with a penchant for girl power and glitter, producing one legendary pop hit after the next. But while they’ve repeatedly teased a reunion over the years, it seems it’s time to finally accept they’ve gone their separate ways, as Geri Halliwell a.k.a. Ginger Spice dropped her first global music release in 12 years on Monday, “Angels in Chains,” written as a tribute to her »

How Roger Moore Made the Role of James Bond His Own

24 May 2017 2:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few actors have come across quite so invincible onscreen as Roger Moore, the James Bond star who dodged death by sharks (“Live and Let Die”), yo-yo buzzsaw (“Octopussy”), space lasers (“Moonraker”) and a demented Christopher Walken (“A View to a Kill”), barely so much as creasing his tuxedo in the process.

Moore played 007 in seven movies over the course of a dozen years, dodging more bullets — golden and otherwise — than we could possibly count. But sooner or later, fate was sure to catch up with the debonair star. All men are mortal, of course, but not so Bond, who’s been saving the world since 1962 (“Dr. No”), and with his passing, Moore became the first big-screen Bond to leave us.

He was actually the third star to play the part, taking over the role from Sean Connery in 1973, and unlike Australian model George Lazenby (who played 007 just once, in “On »

Former James Bond Sir Roger Moore Has Passed Away

23 May 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Sir Roger Moore has passed away in Switzerland following a battle with cancer. He was 89 years old. Moore was the third actor to ever play James Bond, taking over from Sean Connery with 1973's Live and Let Die. He'd go on to star in a total of seven Bond films over the course of twelve years, giving him the record as the longest-serving Bond. He also happens to be the first Bond actor to have passed away. Born in 1927, Moore enjoyed quite a prolific life as a television star - most notably in The Saint - before signing on for Bond. After his spy era ended, Moore took a bit of a break from acting. He would go on to pop up in small roles here and there, often in ways that showed off his self-aware sense of humor (like Spice World), but largely spent his later years on...

Roger Moore, Former James Bond Actor, Passes Away at 89

23 May 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Roger Moore, who is best known for playing James Bond in seven movies throughout the 70s and 80s, has passed away at the age of 89. The actor succumbed to cancer. The veteran star died in Switzerland. It has been announced that he will have a private funeral in Monaco in accordance with his wishes.

To some, Roger Moore is the only James Bond that matters. To others, he is the quintessential Bond, personifying the sexiness and cool European swagger that made his take on the character slightly different than those that came before him and those that followed. He was the first to present Bond with a grand sense of humor, that hasn't been matched in any of other movies in this long running series. But no matter what your stance on the matter is, Moore is one of the best Bonds to ever sip a Martini and chase both »

Kim Kardashian Says Her Palm Springs Favorites Include Cheese Fries, a Giant Dinosaur and a Former Family Home

Kim Kardashian’s Palm Springs road trip was awesomely low-key.

When the Kuwtk star and sisters Kourtney and Khloe hit the road en route to the California desert city in March, they hit up the same fast food joints and tourist attractions that a road tripping college student might. “On the way there, we stopped at In-n-Out — the best cheese fries!

16 classic video labels, and what happened to them

Cic Video? Medusa? Odyssey? Thorn Emi? We track down the classic video companies of yesterday…

The modern DVD and Blu-ray market? Well, it’s all so corporate isn’t it? No slight on the releases, or the companies involved, but I don’t think anyone gets a frission of excitement when they see a Warner Bros Home Entertainment logo on a box, in the way they used to when the Medusa logo popped up. And whilst there are firms such as Arrow and Eureka keeping the flag of quirky film companies flying, there are still a few names consigned to the VHS recycle bin, whose story is in danger of being lost. Hence, this article…

18 actors whose characters were cut out of movies in post-production

Simon Brew Apr 28, 2017

The actors whose role in a film was shot, but chopped out of the final cut...

Yep, I know. I’ve read lists like this too, and I know that Eric Stoltz was cut out of Back To The Future. If it’s all well and good, I’ll leave that example out.

See related  Alien 5 to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection Alien 5: will it ever happen?

What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.

Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out of a production does have a consequence beyond ego hurting a bit. For the side effect »

Spice World: The Movie at 20

Simon Brew Apr 6, 2017

It's 20 years since the Spice Girls headed to the big screen for their solo movie. And we've taken a look back...

I don’t think Spice World: The Movie is as good as Inception.

This winter marks the 20th birthday of a film that many had sneered at before its release, and many continue to sneer at now. Boasting a hard-won 3.4/10 score on IMDb, Spice World: The Movie pops up from time to time in lists slamming films involving pop stars, or, if it’s lucky, it appears on the ‘guilty pleasure’ carousel. For added fun, the late Roger Ebert had it as one of the films that he most hated. Yikes.

I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, personally, and have written about that before. Nor do I agree with Roger. For I do enjoy Spice World: The Movie for what it is: a daft, breezy, »

Inventory: From Justin to terrible: 21 unfortunate cinematic pop-star vehicles

5 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

If you are a successful pop star, conquering the movies appears to be the next logical step. After all, it worked (kind of) for Elvis. And Justin Timberlake! But it turns out that Elvis and Jt are the rare exceptions. Most times, when movies are crafted around a particular pop star who’s new to film, the results are nothing less than disastrous. For proof, take a look at the list below. It’s full of Razzie nominations and desecrated cinematic dreams. Fortunately, most of these pop stars have a pile of gold records to fall back on for solace against an unappreciative movie world.

When the Spice Girls’ one and only film came out in 1997, the girl band was selling out stadium shows across Europe and the U.S. The haphazardly campy Spice World apes another wacky film from another British group, albeit ...
