J.J. Abrams Finally Admits A Big Problem With Star Trek Into Darkness

23 November 2015 2:51 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Of all of J.J. Abrams. directorial efforts, none is quite as widely maligned as the sequel to his rebooted Star Trek, 2013.s Star Trek Into Darkness. Shortly after its release, it was voted the worst Trek movie in the canon at a fan convention (below even Galaxy Quest, which, as probably aware, isn.t actually a Star Trek movie). Though that may have been a harsh, reactionary response, Abrams himself admitted there was at least one big problem with Into Darkness. Chatting with late night talk show host Stephen Colbert at the Montclair Film Festival over the weekend in New Jersey, a "celebrity nerd off" witnessed by Rolling Stone, Abrams admitted: [T]here were too many nods to '[Star Trek II]: The Wrath of Khan.' I'll cop to that. The most obvious of these nods is, of course, that the primary antagonist, played by Benedict »

Chicago – He may be Dwight Schrute of “The Office” forever in reruns, but he is also – according to his new memoir – “The Bassoon King.” Rainn Dietrich Wilson created the offbeat Schrute, and has had a diverse and high profile career. He was at the Yellow Box Theater in Naperville, Ill., recently, being interview by Chicago artist Tony Fitzpatrick, in an event sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop.

25 years ago today: ‘Home Alone’ opened in theaters

16 November 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

25 years ago today, audiences first saw the beloved Christmas comedy movie “Home Alone.” Here’s to a quarter century of kids collecting clever tips on how to outwit would-be burglars, getting spooked by evil furnaces, quoting fictional gangster movies, and (maybe) learning that family is the best gift of all. Directed by Chris Columbus — who would go on to helm the first two “Harry Potter” films — and produced by John Hughes, “Home Alone” became the highest-grossing live action comedy in the U.S. and worldwide after its release in 1990, and it held that record until it was overtaken by “The Hangover: Part II” in 2011. A favorite holiday movie of many, “Home Alone” has secured its place in pop culture with plenty of parodies, with this frightening personalized holiday card, a reference on “Family Guy,” four (mostly ill-advised) sequels, and a John Williams-penned song that’s become a staple of school Christmas concerts. »

The 101 Funniest Screenplays of All-Time, According to the WGA

12 November 2015 5:38 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Perhaps the most subjective genre in cinema, the same comedy can cause one viewer to have tears of laughter and another to not crack a smile. So, while knowing there can be no definitive list of the finest in the genre, the Writers Guild of America attempted to narrow down the 101 funniest screenplays. Noting the distinction from the best in the genre, these 101 films should simply produce the most laughs.

Topping the list is Woody Allen‘s Best Picture-winning Annie Hall, a choice difficult to argue with. Rounding out the top five were Some Like it Hot, Groundhog Day, Airplane! and Tootsie, while films from the Coens, Stanley Kubrick, Wes Anderson, and Edgar Wright were also mentioned. There are also some genuine head-scratching inclusions, including The Hangover at 30, and, as much as I enjoy the film, Bridesmaids nearly making the top 15, but overall, if one is looking to brighten their mood, »

Annie Hall” has been named the funniest screenplay in voting by the members of the Writers Guild of America.

The script by Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman topped “Some Like it Hot,” “Groundhog Day,” “Airplane!” and “Tootsie,” which make up the rest of the top five. “Young Frankenstein,” “Dr. Strangelove,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “National Lampoon’s Animal House” rounded out the top 10.

The awards for the 101 funniest screenplays were announced at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood at the conclusion of two hours of panel discussions and clips, hosted by Rob Reiner. He noted that his “This Is Spinal Tap” script had finished at the No. 11 spot — a coincidence that recalled the “go to 11” amplifier joke in the film.

The “Annie Hall” screenplay won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 1977. Allen had six other scripts on the list — “Sleeper,” “Bananas,” “Take the Money and Run, »

J.J. Abrams' Biggest Issue With Making Star Trek Into Darkness

9 November 2015 2:44 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Star Trek Into Darkness was not terribly well received by fans of the franchise, as shortly after it was released, it was voted the worst Star Trek movie at a fan convention (below even Galaxy Quest, which isn.t even an actual Star Trek movie). There are definitely supporters, but there are a number of problems, and even director J.J. Abrams had one big issue making the movie. Building up to the massively anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Abrams sat down with Wired for an extensive interview, where he revealed: I didn.t want to enter into making a movie where we didn.t really own our story. I feel like done that a couple of times in my career. That.s not to say I.m not proud of my work, but the fact is I remember starting to shoot Super 8 and Star Trek »

Ron Perlman Talks Hand of God's Take on Faith, Sons of Anarchy Series Finale: 'When I Was Done, I Was Done'

2 September 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Never in a million years would Hand of God‘s Judge Pernell Harris ride free or die alongside Sons of Anarchy‘s Clay Morrow.

But Ron Perlman, the actor responsible for bringing both characters to life, sees a little Samcro in Harris’ soul.

“I think they have a good deal in common,” Perlman says, settling back onto a couch at New York’s Bryant Park Hotel. We’re both there to talk about Hand of God, the Amazon series in which he plays a corrupt judge who has a powerful religious revelation following his son’s suicide attempt. But for a moment, »

'Galaxy Quest' Eyes Maiden Voyage At Amazon

28 August 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Galaxy Quest," the surprisingly heartfelt 1999 homage to "Star Trek" and Trekkie fans alike, is hoping to secure a series release through Amazon and is currently in the early development stage at the studio. Not unlike CBS' planned "Rush Hour" and "Limitless" movie-to-television series orders, "Galaxy Quest" is yet another nostalgia-soaked cult favorite that has found new life born out of obscurity in the post-Blockbuster rental world (and back into our PC and Mac connected TV sets). Not only was it surprisingly lucrative and entertaining, the beloved film launched the careers of Sam Rockwell and Justin Long, helped Tim Allen and Alan Rickman make strong career comebacks, and was heralded as the seventh greatest "Star Trek" film by fans at the 2013 annual Star Trek Convention. "Star Trek Into Darkness," unsurprisingly, was ranked as the worst of the bunch.  No word yet on whether Sigourney Weaver, Tim »

Galaxy Quest: Amazon Prime pick up TV series

28 August 2015 1:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The TV series based on 1999 film Galaxy Quest has found a backer and a place to air – Amazon Prime has announced its support…

It’s been months since we first heard anything about the upcoming TV version of Galaxy Quest.

Back in April we were told that a TV spin-off was in the works, but then we got nothing but silence for months. Now, though, nearly half a year later, we finally have some more information to share.

The Galaxy Quest TV series has found a home at Amazon Prime, marking the latest attempt by the young streaming service to recruit a few more subscribers by supporting a familiar name. Perhaps we should assume, then, that saving Ripper Street scored Amazon some good sign-up numbers as well as that outpouring of online good will.

Amazon Studios are working with Paramount Television on the televisual Galaxy Quest, and they’ve recruited creative talent from the 1999 film, »

Galaxy Quest TV series finds a home at Amazon

That Galaxy Quest television series that we all got excited about earlier this year looks to have found a home. Amazon Studios is actively developing a series based on the 1999 fan favorite (and one of the better Star Trek movies that exists), partnering with Paramount Television to make the idea into a reality. But being still very early in the process, there seems to be more questions than answers as to what... Read More »

Amazon Developing ‘Galaxy Quest’ Series With Paramount Television

27 August 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Amazon Studios is adding some more aliens and quirky adventures to its library of original content. The digital production house has signed a development deal for a new series from Paramount Television based on Galaxy Quest, the 1999 cult sci-fi film from DreamWorks.

The Galaxy Quest film told the story of cast members from a cancelled Star Trek-like science fiction TV show, who are mistaken for real heroes and whisked away to space by simple-minded aliens to save them from a threatening race. The movie starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shaloub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, and Justin Long.

So far, Entertainment Weekly, who originally broke the news of the Galaxy Quest series deal with Amazon, reports none of the original Galaxy Quest acting talent is on board with the project. Overall, the show is still in early stages, but has already signed on original Galaxy Quest »

The TV adaptation is being penned by feature screenwriter Robert Gordon, director Dean Parisot and producer Mark Johnson, who will all executive produce. As yet, the concept is being worked out, therefore casting is yet to get underway.

Released in 1999, Galaxy Quest was a send up of the Star Trek TV series, and starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam RockwellDaryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni and Justin Long.

'Galaxy Quest' TV Show Is Coming to Amazon

27 August 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, a report surfaced that original Galaxy Quest co-writer Robert Gordon is developing a new TV series based on the cult classic sci-fi comedy, which debuted in 1999. That report revealed that Paramount was shopping the project around to networks and streaming services, and now it seems the Galaxy Quest adaptation has found a home. Entertainment Weekly reports that Amazon Studios has signed on to develop the series.

The original Galaxy Quest movie centered on the cast of a cancelled sci-fi TV series, who get recruited to go on a real-life outer space mission to save a nation of aliens, who believed their characters were actually real. The ensemble cast for the sci-fi movie includes Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, Missi Pyle and Justin Long, who made his feature debut on the movie.

There's going to be a Galaxy Quest TV series on Amazon

27 August 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Galaxy Quest has built up a cult following over the years, and it will now continue in a TV series.

Amazon Studios has picked up a small-screen version of the 1999 sci-fi comedy, according to Entertainment Weekly.

If you haven't seen it, Galaxy Quest centred around the cast of a Star Trek-style TV series who suddenly find themselves having to pilot a real-life spaceship for a group of aliens who mistook their series for a genuine documentary.

It has yet to be confirmed whether any of the original cast will return or whether it might be a reboot. It's probably going to be difficult to bring back some of the big name cast, including Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell.

However, the film's co-writer Robert Gordon is back to write the script and to executive produce the pilot. Director Dean Parisot is also back, alongside producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. »
