Keanu Reeves in 1985: If I Don't Make It, I'll Cry

16 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Before Keanu's new film John Wick hits theaters, let’s take a look at his first interview with Et.

Keanu Reeves has been acting for nearly three decades and Et has been with him every step of the way.

In celebration of John Wick, the 50-year-old actor's latest film out this Friday, we dug into the Et vault to find the first time we interviewed the actor—way back in 1985 on the set of the TV movie Young Again.

Video- Keanu Reeves Addresses Recent Home Break-In

"I can feel it, I'm having fun," a 21-year-old Keanu told Et. The young actor was wide-eyed and bushy-tailed working alongside TV's Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner, and had dreams of making it big himself one day. "I hope something gets out there that is magic -- and if not, I'll just be sad and cry," he joked.

It took a few more years, but Keanu would eventually make a name for »

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 »

New Poster For Promising Romcom Posthumous

25 September 2014 6:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Could it be that we are about to see a romantic comedy that is actually a fresh and original idea? I don’t want to get ahead of myself here but, even though my instincts dictate a cautious approach, I cannot help but be optimistic about Posthumous – the feature length debut of writer-director Lulu Wang, starring Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) and Brit Marling (The East) – for which we now have a poster.

The film introduces us to Liam Price (Huston) – a struggling artist in Berlin. When false reports of his death send the popularity of his name and his work skyrocketing, he decides to perpetuate and benefit from the myth by posing as his own brother. His plan hits an obstacle, however, when he begins to fall for McKenzie Grain (Marling) – a reporter assigned to cover the story.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Blu-ray Review: 'Bound'

19 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★A lot has changed since Bound was released in 1996. The Wachowskis went from hotshot upstarts to paradigm-shifting savants with The Matrix (1999), a film that has irrevocably altered the form of the action movie. Its sequels, The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003) were met with rather less rapturous response, while Speed Racer (2008) and Cloud Atlas (2012) split critical opinion right down the middle. As the critical tide gradually turns to a re-evaluation and recognition of the later Wachowski achievements, the time seems more than ripe to return to their first movie. Thankfully, a brand new special features-packed release from Arrow Video does just that.

Watch: 'Matrix Reloaded' Fight is Improved with 8-Bit Sound Effects

8 August 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've seen movies like Kill Bill and Blade Runner turned into 8-bit video games, but YouTube user and San Francisco State University student Phillip Raupach has decided to do something different inspired by old school video games. Instead of taking The Matrix Reloaded and turning it into an 8-bit video game, he merely took footage from the film, a fight scene with Neo and thugs in the house of the Merovingian, and replaced all of the music and sounds with those you would find in these early video games. The result is funny and impressive, as his work won him Best Sound Design at Sfsu's BECAfest last year. Watch below! Here's Phillip Raupach's 8-bit version of The Matrix Reloaded (via Movies.com): For those who don't know, BECAfest 2014 is the annual showcase of student work produced in Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts. It's pretty clear why this won Best »

New Cast Members Join Jack Black & Tim Robbins In ‘The Brink’

6 August 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO have got a new comedy show in the works and it has just added a few more cast members to the mix; Jaimie Alexander and Bernard White will join Jack Black and Tim Robbins in the shows’ main roles. The Brink, a half-hour comedy series tipped to be released by the end of the year, will be a humorous slant on the scramble to prevent geopolitical crisis as World War III looms ever closer.

Doesn’t sound that funny to us either but there’s several reasons we’re remaining optimistic. Firstly, the script is being written by seasoned writer/producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim, the former with credits including Ally McBeal and Weeds. Secondly, on board directing is Jay Roach who makes his first foray into directing a TV series after movies such as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Meet The Parents and The Campaign. »

Film Review: Snowpiercer

27 June 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Snowpiercer is not the masterpiece that you want it to be, but it’s a damn good try. South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s first English-language film attempts greatness, playing around with dystopian tropes, numerous cinematic allusions, and some obvious-but-still-sorta-ingenious neo-Marxist political philosophy to deliver a gritty but somehow darkly comedic (as is the case with most of Bong’s films) action thriller that’s worth your while only if you temper your inflated expectations.

In 2031, a device designed to eradicate global warming by lowering the Earth’s temperature backfires, throwing humanity into the next ice age. The only known survivors live on the titular train, created by a mysterious figure named Wilford, that is powered by a perpetual-motion engine travelling on a global track once every year, and is comprised of a train car-based class system (all of this being a seemingly skewed product of an Ayn Rand fever »

Box Office Report: 22 Jump Street Wins Sequel Showdown

15 June 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was the big sequel showdown of summer 2014: the R-rated comedy 22 Jump Street vs. the family-friendly How to Train Your Dragon 2. While the latter’s predecessor was a much bigger hit and widely expected to open at the top of the box office, it was the Jonah Hill-Channing Tatum team-up that rocketed to the #1 spot. The comedy sequel opened with an estimated $60 million, making it the fifth-largest opening for an R-rated film of all time (behind The Matrix Reloaded, The Hangover Part II, The Passion of the Christ and 300). It zoomed past the original’s $36.3 opening from March 2012, as well as raunchy summer hits Ted ($54.4 million) and Neighbors ($49 million).

22 Jump Street‘s victory over How to Train Your Dragon 2 was even more impressive considering the comedy was playing in nearly 1,000 fewer theatres and did not benefit from 3D surcharges. Not only that, but Phil Lord »

Weekend B.O. June 13-15 (Who Would Have Thunk It?)

It was the battle of the two sequels of two very popular movies - one an animated family friendly film with a cuddly dragon, and the other, a violent, profane R-rated buddy comedy.Now logic would assume that the animated film would be the victor, appealing to a larger, more mainstream audience of all ages; but instead it was the R-rated film that won this weekend. Who saw that coming?"22 Jump Street" grossed $60 million, making it the 4th highest weekend tally for any R-rated film ("The Matrix Reloaded" is still No. 1 with an opening $91.5 million)."How to Train Your Dragon 2" came in second with $50 million, which is being considered a disappointment, despite the »

10 Films That Prove The Middle Entry In A Trilogy Is Always The Best

13 June 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

What do drug dealing, prostitution and Hollywood have in common? If you answered ‘Charlie Sheen’ you’d be wrong…sort of. The correct answer is they all thrive on repeat business and nothing brings the crowds back into the cinema like the second and third films in a successful trilogy.

There are exceptions to every rule (cough) Iron Man 2 (cough) but generally speaking the second film in a trilogy always improves on the original. Characters can be further developed without having to spend valuable screen time explaining their motivations or origins. The film’s world can be further explored in greater detail and the scope of the story can be greatly expanded.

The second film also tends to be remembered more fondly than the third and final film for a myriad of reasons. The last film in the trilogy may struggle with providing a satisfying ending for example. »
