'The Green Mile': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Stephen King Classic

10 December 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

No one was sure, when "The Green Mile" was released 15 years ago this week (on December 10, 1999), whether lightning could strike twice in the same spot for Frank Darabont. Sure, the writer/director's first Stephen King prison drama, 1994's "The Shawshank Redemption," had gone from commercial failure to beloved classic in five years. But another King prison tale, one that was three hours long and featured some horrific electric-chair executions, bizarre fantasy elements, and a trained mouse?

As it turned out, of course, "Green Mile" became a huge hit, earned four Oscar nominations, put another feather in star Tom Hanks's cap, and made a star of Michael Clarke Duncan, who played miracle-working, self-sacrificing inmate John Coffey. To this day, it remains the most beloved movie adapted from a King tale.

Still, as many times as you've seen it, there's plenty you may not know: how former ditch-digger Clarke got the star-making part, »

Shawshank Redemption celebrates 20th anniversary: The cast then and now

21 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.

The Shawshank Redemption celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and director Frank Darabont reunited for a special Academy screening of the film this week.

Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.

Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)

Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.

Post-Shawshank he starred in films ranging from Mission to Mars, to High Fidelity and Green Lantern. His biggest career success »

The Maze Runner didn't receive fantastic reviews (JoBlo.com's JimmyO only gave it a 5), but the film has grossed over $300 million worldwide, so of course it's getting a sequel. The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials was announced a couple of months ago, and THR has learned Barry Pepper (The Green Mile, The 25Th Hour) and Lili Taylor (The Conjuring, High Fidelity) have joined the film.

'The Dark Half' Blu-ray Review

31 October 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Back in 2007 I posted my list of the top ten Stephen King adaptations. It's always funny to revisit such lists because there will always be one or two placements that have me scratching my head. In this case it would be the placement of 1408 (still a good adaptation mind you) over both The Shining and The Green Mile. However, the placing of George A. Romero's The Dark Half at #3 would still remain, an opinion again solidified after revisiting the 1993 Jekyll and Hyde thriller on Shout Factory's new Blu-ray release. It's always been easier for filmmakers to adapt King's less fantastical stories to the big screen, films such as The Shawshank Redemption, Misery and even The Green Mile, which is definitely fantastical, but not to the extent of so many other King stories. However, when it comes to the weirder stories, it's not just the narratives that have that particular »

Entertainment Geekly: How 'The Walking Dead' is 'Lord of the Rings'

24 October 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Robert Kirkman likes to describe The Walking Dead as a zombie movie that never ends. But to my eyes, the most interesting thing about the show is how it's spent five seasons fluttering between different storytelling modes. The show lacks a single setting and makes a point of killing off at least a couple key cast members every season. This can make The Walking Dead feel unwieldy or unfocused, but it also means that there's an exciting state of constant flux underpinning the show's basic head-crushing thrills. I've always said that original showrunner Frank Darabont most clearly viewed his version »

Exclusive Video Interview With Sam Rockwell On Laggies

21 October 2014 10:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is a shame that very few people know Sam Rockwell’s name. Most casual moviegoers are probably at least familiar with his face though, due to his scene-stealing turns in films as diverse as The Green Mile, Galaxy Quest, Iron Man 2 and Frost/Nixon. However, he also has a stellar resume of independent projects, including critically acclaimed turns in Moon, Conviction, The Way Way Back and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Rockwell is formidable at playing men with a sense of arrested development. (his turn as the buffoonish but tender Owen in The Way Way Back even got him some long-overdue Oscar buzz). That made him a prime choice to join the cast of Laggies, a new comedy-drama from director Lynn Shelton.

In the film, the actor plays Craig, a lawyer and hopeless romantic who falls for young, aimless, twenty-something Megan (Keira Knightley). Rockwell gives the role the »

Entertainment Geekly: Which movie from 1999 has aged most poorly?

10 October 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's been 15 years since 1999, because that's how time works. 1999 is generally considered a great year for movies. Transformative, even: A diverse array of films, directed by a fleet of up-and-coming filmmakers, all arriving at the multiplex back when cable was lame enough and the internet was slow enough to make the multiplex a place that mattered. If you happened to be young in 1999—or young-ish—it was possible to feel like you were seeing the entire cinematic art form evolve in front of you. Fifteen years ago this month was Three Kings and Fight Club and Being John Malkovich, instant-cult »

Hulu Announces Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Series Order

23 September 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Hulu‘s original content doesn’t get the attention it deserves, but things may change soon as Stephen King and J.J. Abrams join the mix. They’ve announced a series order for the nine-episode event based on King’s 11/22/63. The alt-history novel that surrounds the Kennedy assassination is not only a great story, and one that King himself believes fits the format, it will be an interesting series that may open some doors.

There are a lot of alt-history works that I’d like to see, whether as series or films, and something has to sell the genre to the money people. Plus, Hulu has several fantastic shows, and you don’t hear enough about them. Maybe something that has a lot of roads to attention will pull in a big range of new potential Hulu fans, who will then check out more content.

Series Based on Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Picked Up by Hulu

22 September 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Like far-reaching ripples made by a stone plopped in a still pond, three shots in Dallas changed the course of America’s history on November 22nd, 1963. The assassination of President Kennedy has been debated and analyzed for decades, but in Stephen King’s novel, 11/22/63, one man has the chance to erase it from history in a time-bending journey that’s now being adapted into a new series for Hulu.

An upcoming Hulu original series, the adaptation of 11/22/63 will be executive produced by Stephen King, J. J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, and Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), who will also script the project. J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television are backing the adaptation, which is being developed as a nine-hour event series. We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In the meantime, we have the official press release with full details (via TV by »

Exclusive: Director Hank Braxtan Talks New Creature Feature Unnatural

3 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

With narrative shades reminiscent of 1979’s Prophecy, an old-school practical effects approach, a grueling location shoot in Alaskan winter climes, and a cast that includes 1990’s "Twin Peaks" bombshell Sherilyn Fenn, our interest was piqued from the onset for Unnatural...

Now, at long last, we’re finally able to bring you word on director Hank Braxtan’s recently wrapped creature feature. Helmed by Braxtan (whose upcoming psychological horror feature Chemical Peel is due out via Lionsgate this coming October), Unnatural was produced by Ron Carlson.

Cinematography is by Marc Carter and editing is by filmmaker Mike Mendez (Big-Ass Spider). The film was shot this past January and February on location in Fairbanks, Alaska, and in addition to Fenn, the cast includes James Remar (“Dexter”), Ray Wise (Jeepers Creepers 2, “Twin Peaks”), Graham Greene (The Green Mile), Q’orianka Kilcher (“Sons of Anarchy”), and Ivana Korab.

Film Review: More Risqué ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Doesn’t Dare to Trailblaze Again

22 August 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sex sells, sure, but the film-noir sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” makes you feel dirty if you’re left thinking that’s enough.

Nine years since the visually groundbreaking, avant-garde hit “Sin City,” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s biggest mistake with their next incarnation is replacing the first film’s bloodthirsty impact with too much nudity.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The film is equally violent as it is naked, but we’ve almost become numb to such mutilation and it’s certainly part of this story. These talented filmmakers insult audiences by thinking Eva Green’s rabid libido and willingness to bare it all can outshine the film’s need to be otherwise compelling. She’ll satisfy the horny little boy or girl in you, but leave the mature man or woman in you really are intellectually unsatisfied.

In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision »

10 Most Ridiculous Movie Death Scenes

22 August 2014 1:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Ahhh, the sublime death scene: the director’s secret weapon and the jobbing actor’s Holy Grail. The perfect death, judged carefully, is a stunningly powerful grace note to some of the greatest, most truly Oscar-baiting scenes in movie history.

Who can forget Nick in The Deer Hunter, Christopher Walken’s brilliantly empty smile as he says, “one shot” at the climax of his final game of Russian Roulette? John Coffey in The Green Mile, simply asking Tom Hanks not to place the hood over his head as they strap him into the electric chair? Atreyu in The Neverending Story, begging his beloved horse Artax not to drown in the Swamps Of Sadness? Oh, god… Artax…

These are not that kind of death scene. Whether it’s deliberate, for a hilariously memorable moment in a comedy; or completely unintentional, a moment of poor judgement in a good movie »

10 Embarrassing Thoughts We All Had Watching Famous Movies

12 August 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

It’s no secret that movies can feel your head with all types of thoughts and emotions. Maybe you watch a movie like Rocky, A Beautiful Mind or The Shawshank Redemption and become instantly inspired. Perhaps you become super-sensitive and emotional when watching your favorite movie. Films like Toy Story 3, The Green Mile and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial will have you grabbing the tissues quick.

However, sometimes a film can fill your head with a thought you’d probably be too embarrassed to share with anybody you know personally. Given that embarrassment happens in relation to other people, it is a public emotion that makes you feel quite awkward. In other words, you’ve probably kept these thoughts to yourself. Today we are going to be presenting you with ten films that have filled your head with such embarrassing thoughts. One minute you’re in the movie theater »
