When Cabin Fever came out in 2002, it was a sensation among fans of freaky frights. The film packed more than a little punch with its own version of the karate kid, a leg shaving scene that set disposable razor sales back for a year, and a German Shepherd who made Cujo look like a lapdog.
Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever left a legacy hard to live up to, but of course a dumbed-down sequel was released. It was directed by Roth’s Bff Ti West, but one would never guess that after the studio heads got hold of it in the editing room and butchered it.
Regardless, the Cabin Fever name still carries weight so there is a prequel that's out now on demand and will be in theaters on August 1, 2014.
This time the story centers about the initial outbreak of the creeping virus. On a remote island, Patient Zero »

Looks like the Secret Life of Walter Mitty star just revealed his own brawny secrets—and they're no figment of your imagination. Ben Stiller let his ripped guns out while enjoying the fun and sun on the beaches of Hawaii, and we didn't even know he was packing this kind of heat! Spotted shirtless and drying off after a day of paddleboarding, the 48-year-old funnyman known for his Blue Steel look in Zoolander also served up some abs of steel in his multicolored, floral board shorts. Paddleboarding in Hawaii seems to be his workout of choice because we've caught him reveling in this water sport before. Back in 2012 Stiller was on a holiday getaway with his family in Kauai, and »

It was a sad day for Arrested Development fans back in 2006 when it was cancelled after three seasons. One of the most original and innovative, not to mention funny, shows on television it didn't conform to any of the usual norms for television comedy, and instead forged its own wry, witty path as the saga of the Bluth family unfolded on our screens.
When Netflix announced that they were bringing it back there was joy in this reviewer's heart as I'd missed the Bluth family, as dysfunctional and appalling as they are, and couldn't wait to see what further adventures they would get up to.
This being Arrested Development, nothing about returning for a fourth season was ever going to be conventional. Rather than being shown weekly, all fifteen new episodes were released simultaneously on Netflix, and for good reason, as while they »
Fred Durst: 43-year-old hat enthusiast, frontman of the rap-rock institution Limp Bizkit, George Michael cover artist, Young Money signee, and…eHarmony commercial director? Yup, it happened — please prepare to deal with it.

Our first glimpse at Durst's special spin on the eHarmony brand (there will be three Durst-directed ads in all) features two adorable kids getting a little ahead of themselves in the romance department. Fortunately, eHarmony CEO Dr. Neil Clark Warren is there to get the youngsters »
If you should have the good fortune to visit Sicily in June, the last thing you want to do is sit inside and watch movies. That’s just as well for the Taormina Film Festival, since half the movies are shown outdoors in the Teatro Antico, and the other half no one wants to see anyway.
Taormina is the first film festival I’ve attended where film seems to be the least important thing going on. Three years ago, the event was on the brink of bankruptcy when Tiziana Rocca took the reins and rescued it. One thing I’ve learned about Southern Italy this week: When life gives them lemons, they make limoncello.
A publicity maven from Rome, Rocca instinctively understood that glamour would be the way to bring attention back to Taormina. And so, for eight nights in the middle of June, the city becomes the backdrop for starry awards shows, »

In a recent interview with BuzzFeed, "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe was asked if there were any film franchise he'd like to join next, what would they be?
He quickly responded: "Batman. If they reboot that again I'll do that too. It's happening, isn't it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin, I'm perfect." Could the boy who lived one day be the boy wonder?
Speaking at the Taormina Festival in Sicily the other day, Stiller sadly had bad news for fans. He tells THR: "The film's been discussed and in some way in the works for 10 years. But there are no plans to start production any time soon." »

Director Ridley Scott is working on a "Prometheus" sequel, which is set to hit theaters on March 4th, 2016. And while Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will return, it will be difficult to bring back any other actors from the first film. In a new interview, however, Guy Pearce expressed interested in reprising his role as Peter Weyland. "I'd love to go back and play that character again," he said. "I think it's possible. Who knows? When you look at science fiction and the ways things can develop -- technologically speaking -- anything's possible, really, isn't it?" Meanwhile, Ben Stiller gave an update on his "Zoolander" sequel, which has been in the works for years. "I can't say that it's actually a reality yet, but I hope some day it is," he explained. "The film's been discussed and in some way in the works for 10 years. But there are no plans »
Those of you who’ve been spending the last thirteen years perfecting your Blue Steel look for Derek Zoolander’s return to the big screen will have to wait a bit longer to show it off, because it doesn’t look like the long-gestating sequel’s coming anytime soon, if at all. The last we heard about Zoolander 2 was two years ago, and despite Ben Stiller’s desire to return to the dangerous world of male modelling, no real progress has been made on the follow-up since then.
On Thursday, Stiller was honored by the Taormina Film Festival, and participated in a Q&A master-class afterwards. Fans couldn’t help asking about the Zoolander sequel, which has supposedly been in the works for about a decade. According to Stiller, the script is undergoing a rewrite at his production company, Red Hour Films, and while the film isn’t a reality yet, »

While he confirmed that the project remains in the works, Stiller told fans at the Taormina Film Festival (via The Hollywood Reporter) that production is still some way off.
"The film's been discussed and in some way in the works for 10 years," he said.
The director-star added: "But there are no plans to start production any time soon."
He later denied reports that he approached Lady Gaga for a role in the sequel.

Ben Stiller gave a much-needed update on Zoolander 2 at the Taormina Festival in Sicily. He was there to host one of the Master Class events at Taormina's PalaCongressi and also received career honors on Thursday evening at the 2,700-year-old Teatro Antico.
THR caught up with the comedian at his Master Class, were Derek Zoolander himself relayed the bad news.
"The film's been discussed and in some way in the works for 10 years. But there are no plans to start production any time soon."
We last heard about the project all the way back in October of 2011, when Owen Wilson gave an update on his character, rival model turned friend Hansel.
"Hansel, he's fallen on hard times. There's been a disfiguring injury. »
Ben Stiller has made a lot of good movies during his nearly three decade career as an actor, writer and director. If we.re being honest, quite a few of them are better than Zoolander, but thanks to its goofy charm and flat out ridiculousness, that.s the film many of his fans care about most. As such, there.s been a steady stream of conjecture, rumors and hopes related to a potential sequel for the past decade, most of which were not fueled nor addressed by Ben Stiller. Fortunately, he finally decided to speak on the record this week, and well, it.s not the best news for hardcore fans who want more. Ben Stiller was giving a Master Class at the Taormina Film Festival yesterday when he opened up the floor for questions. Of course, he was hit with some weird requests related to autographs, pictures and even »

Earlier in the afternoon, the actors held separate master-class interviews for local film students and enthusiasts — an audience clearly obsessed with Stiller’s 2001 comedy “Zoolander.” (One fan presented the stunned Stiller with a hand-drawn caricature of the vain male supermodel, and the crowd erupted into cheers when he flashed them Derek Zoolander’s trademark “Blue Steel” look.)
Whereas the audiences for such Q&As often want to know what an actor is doing next, in Taormina, the question was more focused: Will there ever be a “Zoolander” sequel?

Taormina, Sicily – Melanie Griffith said on Thursday that she made a big mistake in her career when she turned away from comedy to try to be a "serious" actress, while Ben Stiller — accompanied by an oversized entourage — offered an update on the status of the highly anticipated sequel to his popular 2001 comedy Zoolander. Griffith and Stiller were the main attractions at the Taormina Film Festival Thursday, with both hosting well-attended Master Class events at Taormina's PalaCongressi and then receiving career honors on Thursday evening at the 2,700-year-old Teatro Antico, ahead of the

It's a shock to go back and watch "Midnight Cowboy" 45 years after its debut (on May 25, 1969) and see how raw and otherworldly it looks. After all, the X-rated Best Picture Oscar-winner has been so thoroughly assimilated into American pop culture that even kiddie entertainments like the Muppets have copied from it.
The tale of the unlikely friendship between naïve Texas gigolo Joe Buck (Jon Voight) and frail Bronx con man Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), "Midnight Cowboy" was initially considered so risqué that it's the only X-rated movie ever to win the Academy's top prize (though after it won, the ratings board reconsidered and gave the film an R). Still, the film featured two lead performances and a few individual scenes that were so iconic that homages (and parodies) have popped up virtually everywhere. (Most often imitated is the scene where Ratso, limping across a busy Manhattan street, is nearly »

A consummate musical chameleon, David Bowie has done it all: folk, soul, rock, blues and a modern pop, to name a few. The same can be said about his acting career. Drew Morton put together this great montage focusing on David Bowie’s filmography, and the various strange but always memorable characters he’s played. It includes clips from The Prestige, The Man who Fell To Earth, Labyrinth, Into the Night, Zoolander, The Hunger, and yes, that blink-your-eyes-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in Twin Peaks Fire Walk with Me.

Ben Stiller rose to fame in a number of outrageous, family-friendly comedies, be it Zoolander, Meet the Parents or the classic remake of 80's favourite Starsky and Hutch. However, as Walter Mitty Stiller showed a different side, one that possessed a far deeper acting style and one that was evident Stiller wanted to continue with.
But just how does he do it? Just how is Mr. Stiller so damned articulate? Well, let's see, as Ben retails us with his thoughts on watching films at home:
Riveting, Mr Stiller.
Fortunately for Mr Stiller his onscreen, acted performances are far more convincing; and to celebrate the release of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD, Shadowlocked has teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to give away a Blu-ray and DVD copy of the film to two lucky winners.
To be in with a chance of winning, »
