James Cameron has never been one to set the bar low. When his last two films were released, each was most expensive movies ever made and became the highest grossing films ever. Avatar remains on the top of the list by a wide margin, followed up by the other recent Cameron film, Titanic. But that’s […]

The countryside community of Elwood has a problem, and a group of specially trained young adults are about the only ones equipped to take care of it. The problem lies with the living dead that shamble within the town’s boundaries now and then, threatening a dwindling number of uninfected humans in Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard, which Anchor Bay Entertainment is releasing on home media this winter.
Co-starring Billy Zane and Dee Wallace, Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on February 3rd with a trio of behind-the-scenes featurettes. We have the official press release with full details:
“Beverly Hills, CA – The rural town of Elwood has always been a “bubble” against the backdrop of an organism-based epidemic where infected humans don’t die, instead they roam to spread the infection in a grisly, horrific way. Those who escape must survive—by any means necessary. »

Paul W.S. Anderson has continued his explorations in 3D cinema with his latest film, Pompeii. It’s a simplistic love story in the vein of Titanic, two mismatched, class-divided lovers contrasted against one of history’s worst natural disasters. The story concerns a Celtic gladiator named Milo (Kit Harrington), who witnessed the slaughter of his family by the Roman Empire, under the command of Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland). Soon, after being spotted as a promising business prospect for Pompeii’s gladiator games, Milo is sent to the titular city. While on the way, he first meets Cassia (Emily Browning), the melancholic (by way of Kate Winslet in Titanic) daughter of the wealthy class. After arriving in Pompeii, Milo meets fellow slave and gladiator Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and they soon become friends, bonded by their captivity. Corvus, now a senator, arrives in Pompeii to broker a land deal, and with all the players now arrived, »

In an industry filled with failed child stars, Leonardo DiCaprio is a rare success story.The actor is one of the few who was able to transition from kid actor to teen heartthrob to respected A-lister unlike anyone before him -- and today, he turns 40!Hard to believe the kid who got his start in projects like "Critters 3" and "Growing Pains" has become one of Hollywood's most bankable stars and a five-time Oscar nominee.While he had critically acclaimed parts in "Romeo + Juliet" and "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?", it was the role of Jack Dawson in "Titanic" that made him "King of the World" in 1997 -- launching him to a new level of fame he probably never expected.These days he balances films like "The Wolf of Wall Street" with his philanthropic work, recently speaking at the Un about climate change and doing what he can to support wildlife. »

Leonardo DiCaprio celebrates his 40th birthday this week, which got us thinking about how many years he's been on the Hollywood scene. We still remember when Growing Pains welcomed DiCaprio into the family as Luke - because he stole our hearts pretty much immediately. It only got better from there, as DiCaprio charmed us in movies like Romeo + Juliet, Catch Me If You Can, and, of course, Titanic, all the way to The Great Gatsby. Take a look at some of his most memorable roles. »
Leonardo DiCaprio is celebrating his 40th birthday tomorrow, and we're not quite sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, we can't believe that the little guy from Growing Pains has built such an illustrious film career, but on the other, it makes us feel pretty ancient. After all, watching Titanic on VHS and listening to the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack on repeat feels like yesterday. Despite his constant Hollywood presence and multitude of Teen Beat covers, Leo successfully escaped the child star curse. And even though that Oscar statue still eludes him, we can all agree that Leo has become one of the most talented and sought-after actors of our time. In honor of his big day, we've charted Leo's evolution from teenage dream to A-list heartthrob. Keep reading to see the full transformation. »
Not too long ago the infectious and now sadly-cancelled sitcom "Happy Endings" used Leo as a point of reference for just how many women their newly-back-on-the-scene friend was dating - as in, was he pulling DiCaprio-level numbers? And hearing the playful jab reminded us that it's been quite some time since Leo's bag was being a solid actor who dated models. A lot of models. But not quite long enough that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were going to let a moment at this year's Golden Globes pass without a little, still relevant jab.
The former dreamboat was the stuff of teengirl-worship for a good few years until a man named Martin Scorsese came into his life and introduced movie audiences to Leo The Serious »

Martha Stewart: Actress / Singer in Fox movies apparently not dead despite two-year-old reports to the contrary (Photo: Martha Stewart and Perry Como in 'Doll Face') According to various online reports, including Variety's, actress and singer Martha Stewart, a pretty blonde featured in supporting roles in a handful of 20th Century Fox movies of the '40s, died at age 89 of "natural causes" in Northeast Harbor, Maine, on February 25, 2012. Needless to say, that was not the same Martha Stewart hawking "delicious foods" and whatever else on American television. But quite possibly, the Martha Stewart who died in February 2012 — if any — was not the Martha Stewart of old Fox movies either. And that's why I'm republishing this (former) obit, originally posted more than two and a half years ago: March 11, 2012. Earlier today, a commenter wrote to Alt Film Guide, claiming that the Martha Stewart featured in Doll Face, I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now, »

Wamg is debuting this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip featuring Cameron where he discusses the reservations and fears he had about venturing into unknown territory.
As a boy, filmmaker James Cameron dreamed of a journey to the deepest part of the ocean. This film is the dramatic fulfillment of that dream. It chronicles Cameron’s solo dive to the depths of the Mariana Trench—nearly seven miles beneath the ocean’s surface—piloting a submersible he designed himself. »

When it comes to the movie Titanic, well, we'll never let go. A few weeks ago, Titanic's strange alternate ending hit the Internet, prompting all kinds of nostalgia, and now in honor of Leonardo DiCaprio's 40th birthday this week, we're taking a look at some of the most heartwarming, heartbreaking, and can't-even-go-there moments from the 1997 movie. From Jack and Rose's steamy romance to the best one-liners, take a trip down memory lane with 45 Gif-worthy Titanic moments you'll never forget. »
Noted film critic astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has a long history of fact checking movies while still making the Internet love him. Back during the release of Titanic, Tyson noticed that the celestial pattern Jack and Rose see in the Atlantic Ocean sky didn’t match what they should’ve in that location and time of year, prompting James Cameron to go back and fix it on the DVD release. Last year Tyson went to town on Gravity, saying first on Twitter that it should be called Angular Momentum and then taking his act to YouTube. No word yet on how Alfonso Cuaron is taking the news.
But with the arrival of Interstellar this weekend, yet another space travel movie that seems to dare scientists with its convincing sounding theories about relativity, black holes, quantum mechanics and more, you can bet Tyson will weigh in.
Late Sunday evening, Tyson sure »

The Texas-born actor was practically a leading man from the get-go, starring in critically-acclaimed dramas before topping the box office in a flurry of romantic comedies. And then the McConaissance began. McConaughey transformed himself for a role in "Dallas Buyers Club," won his first Oscar -- and then nearly won an Emmy for "True Detective," too. Now, the actor continues his hot streak by starring in Christopher Nolan's space epic "Interstellar."
From his early days shooting armadillo to his love for bongo drums, here are 35 things you probably don't know about Matthew McConaughey.
2. His mother is a former kindergarten teacher, while his father ran an oil supply business.

Marriage is a two-way street. The union of a man and woman is basically a tug of war and it is a battle fought in many arenas. One arena is the suburbs and while a married couple with kids in this environment seems copacetic, one must look a bit deeper to unravel the mystery: the pain, resentment and utter chaos that lies beneath. One film that explores the woes and occasional hell of marriage is 2008’s intense and truly gripping drama Revolutionary Road. Based on Richard Yates 1961 novel of the same name, it is a picture that sums up all the torment and bitter realities that sometimes come with married life.
The film takes place in the 1950s, a time which many Americans still perceive as the height The American Dream »

Salma’s spilling out! Like Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet hanging off the boat in Titanic, Salma Hayek clung to her chest for dear life on Friday, Oct. 31. The Grown Ups 2 star, 48, was in the middle of a sexy photo shoot, wearing a black strapless gown in a pool of water, when she came within centimeters of suffering an intense nip slip. As she stepped out of the water, Hayek’s dress proved too flimsy to hold up her voluptuous chest, so the Mexican stunner was [...] »
Only two actors have officially played Freddy Krueger on camera. The most recent was Jackie Earle Haley in the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, and as fine as Haley was in the role, there just wasn't anything strong enough in that film to overpower two decades of Krueger legacy built by the inimitable Robert Englund. But Robert Englund wasn't even the first person cast as the supernatural child killer. Englund was only able to take the role after Wes Craven's first choice, David Warner (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Titanic) dropped out of the movie due to a prior commitment that conflicted with the shoot. And this wasn't just an issue of Craven wanting Warner and they never got past the paperwork. The actor actually went through makeup...

Ever hear a story that seems so implausible but is true? Imagine these stories reveal items from some of our culture and history that have gone missing. Perhaps you could help find them. If every picture is worth a thousand words, then according to Brad Meltzer’s Lost History, which makes its debut tonight on the H2 channel, every item contains a story of a million words.
If you’re not familiar with Meltzer, he is a bestselling novelist, comic book writer (Jla, Green Arrow, Identity Crisis) and author of kids books. He also hosted a series on the History Channel called Decoded, which spent two seasons verifying or debunking real American mysteries and conspiracies.

Since the development of the moving picture camera in the late 19th century, the world, especially Americans, has been fascinated by the silver screen. For a time, people shut out the cold reality of the Great Depression with Shirley Temple's iconic curls, and legends such as Errol Flynn, Gregory Peck, and Katherine Hepburn roamed Hollywood lots and ordered Cobb salads at the Brown Derby. For awhile it seemed that our infatuation with Hollywood would never end, but the most recent decade has seen both its revenue and cultural significance decline, and many industry experts are scrambling to understand how movies have slipped from the spotlight. Internal changes show that studios have reinvested quite a bit of their resources into television production, and although Hollywood has been a television oriented town since the late -1950s, it had never stepped on film profits until fairly recently.
