Flashback: 'Office Space' Gleefully Mocks Michael Bolton

30 June 2016 9:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Office Space hit theaters in February of 1999, it took in a paltry $4.2 million in its first weekend, landing in eighth place behind such widely-forgotten turkeys as My Favorite Martian, Blast From The Past, Message in a Bottle and Payback. Writer/director Mike Judge had proven himself in television with Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill, but this seemed like it would end his foray into movies and live-action work before it really began.

Office Space made such a tiny impact when it opened, it's easy to imagine »

Doc Brown leads a tense political thriller in this fan-made ‘Back to the Future’ prequel trailer

18 February 2016 6:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back to the Future left fans with plenty of burning questions. One of them: How exactly did Doc Brown weasel a full supply of plutonium out of a group of Libyan nationalists? That’s the question answered by a fan-made trailer for a fake Back to the Future prequel titled 1.21 Gigawatts. The all-important amount of power that propels the DeLorean through time had to come from somewhere. We know Doc Brown fooled the Libyans when he built them a “bomb” full of used pinball machine parts. What we didn’t know is Doc was basically the star of his own political thriller in his endeavor to get that plutonium. Below, watch the excellent trailer that seamlessly edits together clips from a number of movies: Edited by fan Tyler Hopkins, the trailer uses clips from Back to the Future (of course); Christopher Lloyd movies My Favorite Martian, Camp Nowhere, Things to Do »

3rd Rock from the Sun Turns 20, Plus 10 Other Roles That Led Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Stardom

13 January 2016 8:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Twenty years ago this week, an oddball NBC sitcom introduced viewers to a family of space aliens who, in the grand tradition of Alf, Mork and Mindy and My Favorite Martian, were attempting to hide out on Earth. It was a silly premise, but 3rd Rock from the Sun ended up outlasting those other three shows, running a full six seasons. And we can credit its success to a talented comedic cast that included John Lithgow, Kristen Johnston, French Stewart and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was only 14 when the show premiered. Seriously, look at him - babyfaced and long-haired and oh-so »
