Lionsgate Takes U.K. Rights to Michael Caine Swinging 60s Feature Documentary ‘My Generation’

Lionsgate Takes U.K. Rights to Michael Caine Swinging 60s Feature Documentary ‘My Generation’
Lionsgate has snapped up the U.K. rights to “My Generation,” the upcoming documentary about the 1960s and with contributions from Paul McCartney, Roger Daltrey, Marianne Faithfull, and David Bailey. Michael Caine will narrate the feature documentary and appear in it. Simon Fuller is among the producers.

IM Global is behind “My Generation” and has global rights. The documentary will be released next year in the U.K. and uses film clips, archive, and music from the era to tell the story of the decade and the cultural revolution that took place. A key resource was a collection of footage and rushes the producers found that belonged to 1960s filmmaker Peter Whitehead. Filming has wrapped on the project.

“I am so pleased to hear that Lionsgate has picked up ‘My Generation,’” Caine said. “I had a wonderful experience with them on ‘Harry Brown’ and am so happy to be working with them again. ‘My Generation ’was such

Statesman Reports For Duty In The Bonkers Red Band Trailer For Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Just when you thought Eggsy had saved the world from total annihilation, and Taron Egerton’s sharp-suited Kingsman could look forward to an early retirement, a new nemesis emerges onto the scene. Her name? Poppy, a ruthless, psychotic entrepreneur who has been described as America’s sweetheart gone wrong. Or “Martha Stewart on crack.”

And so, by the time Kingsman: The Golden Circle begins, Julianna Moore’s unhinged antagonist has brought the top-secret Kingsman organization to its knees, forcing Taron Egerton (Eggsy) and Mark Strong (Merlin) to uproot for America’s heartland – the mountains of Kentucky, to be specific – to buddy up with their U.S. counterpart, Statesman.

Located in a far-flung whiskey distillery, the Statesman HQ is as ostentatious as you’d expect, while the actual agents populating its golden halls are larger than life. From Halle Berry’s Ginger to Channing Tatum’s gun-toting Tequila, The Golden Circle is teeming with zany personalities,

Watch the Who Bring Rousing 'Who Are You' to 'Tonight Show'
A night after the Who brought their 50th anniversary tour to New York's Madison Square Garden, the rock legends dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to make their first U.S. late-night performance in nearly a decade.

27 years ago: The Beach Boys made chart history when ‘Kokomo’ hit No. 1
27 years ago, The Beach Boys set two records when their song “Kokomo” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top 100. When the song peaked on the chart, it marked the longest gap between chart-toppers for a group (almost 22 years since 1966’s “Good Vibrations”) and the longest stretch of career No. 1s (dating back to The Beach Boys’ first, “I Get Around” over 24 years prior). “Kokomo” rose to popularity partly thanks to its presence on the soundtrack for Tom Cruise movie “Cocktail.” That place off the Florida Keys called Kokomo? It was fictional — at least at the time The Beach Boys recorded the song. But years later, a privately owned island in Montego Bay, Jamaica was named after the song. Now, though, that formerly named Kokomo Island is called Sandals Cay. Another fun fact: John Stamos is seen performing in the music video for “Kokomo” but Brian Wilson is not. Stamos, who has

Strictly Come Dancing: All the dances, judges' comments and scores from Week 4

Strictly Come Dancing is now into its fourth week and the competition is really hotting up, with an incredibly close leaderboard.

Digital Spy was watching along and have rounded up all of the scores and judges' comments below:

1. Anita Rani and Gleb Savchenko dancing the samba to 'Hips Don't Lie by Shakira: 6+7+7+7=27

Len: "Your hips certainly don't lie. A little bit long getting started but once you got into it… I thought you coped very well. I think it could have been better leg action, but I'm being pernickety."

Bruno: "That was warming up nicely. The samba has a carefree feel to it, but a couple of times there you got a little tangled and it kind of stopped it a little bit. The technique is actually very very hard. It was a bit on and off."

2. Daniel O'Donnell & Kristina Rihanoff dancing the American Smooth to 'Fly Me To The Moon

Strictly Come Dancing: Jay McGuiness missteps during the quickstep

Despite getting the highest score of the series so far last week, Jay McGuiness didn't quite live up to expectations on tonight's episode of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Wanted singer was dancing the quickstep with Aliona Vilani to The Who's 'My Generation', but had a misstep.

The judges were not as enthusiastic as they were for McGuiness' jive last week, admitting that he wished he'd "done better" this week.

Judge Darcey Bussell said: "It was such a shame you made a mistake." However, she added: "Aliona gave you a very challenging quickstep and I know you can come back stronger next week."

"These things happen, it's a very fast dance, and unfortunately your feet were doing more than your brain can handle," Len Goodman said.

Bruno Tonioli, who gave McGuiness his 10 last week said that this dance should have been "barnstorming", but remarked that this evening's performance was

19 years ago today: Oprah Winfrey launched her book club

  • Hitfix
On this day in 1996, Oprah Winfrey launched her book club and announced that “The Deep End of the Ocean” by Jacquelyn Mitchard would be her first selection. Oprah’s Book Club quickly became a hugely influential force in the publishing world. The popular daytime talk show host's stamp of approval on books often sent them to bestseller lists. Other notable Sept. 17 happenings in pop culture history: • 1957: Louis Armstrong canceled his trip to the U.S.S.R.. Announcing that he would not participate in a U.S. government-sponsored tour of the Soviet Union, the jazz musician said, “The way they are treating my people in the South, the government can go to hell.” • 1967: The Who ended a nationally televised performance of “My Generation” with a literal bang — an explosion, caused by explosives packed into Keith Moon’s drum kit, rocked the stage, singed Pete Townshend’s hair and

When Neil Patrick Harris returns to TV next week, he won't be cracking jokes in another sitcom. Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris (debuting on September 15th on NBC) marks the return — overdue or not — of the variety show, that long-dormant format in which kooky skits, musical guests, and frenzied production numbers are jammed into an hour of family-friendly entertainment.

Composer Heitor Pereira Discusses The Music, Sounds And Rhythms For His Minions Score

Photo by Jim Ruymen/Upi

How does a composer create musical voices for a population of yellow creatures who speak their own language? If you’re Grammy Award-winning musician/composer/songwriter Heitor Pereira, it’s one groovy journey.

Playing in theaters now, Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he – alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob – ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain.

Tfi Friday – it's your live blog, it's your live blog, as it happened

Chris Evans returned for a one-off special with guests including Jeremy Clarkson, Blur and Liam Gallagher

Tfi: a nod to 90s nostalgiaWhat happened to Friday night TV?

10.54pm BST

Lessons learned? Never have Lewis Hamilton on your television programme as the main guest. Never pretend that the 1990s were better than they were. And never go back. Never, ever go back.

Anyway, thanks for joining me. If you want to follow me on Twitter, I’m @StuHeritage. If you don’t, I’ll try not to lose any sleep. Ok, bye.

And that’s it. That’s really it. More clips of when the show used to be good – all of which we’ve seen elsewhere during this episode, strangely – and we’re done.

Liam Gallagher, Roger Daltrey and more forming Tfi Friday supergroup

Joined by the Lightning Seeds’s Ian Broudie and Ringo Starr’s son Zak Starkey, the group will reportedly play My Generation on 12 June

No 90s revival would be complete without at least one Gallagher brother on board. It’s just as well, then, that Liam Gallagher will join forces with the Who’s Roger Daltrey, the Lightning Seeds’s Ian Broudie and Ringo Starr’s son Zak Starkey for the return of Tfi Friday on 12 June. At the request of Chris Evans, the supergroup will perform for the one-off episode, and are said to be covering the Who’s My Generation.

“Liam’s got a bit of time on his hands since Beady Eye called it a day last year, so he fancied trying his hand at something new,” a source recently told the Sun. “He’s told his mates he’s pretty bored. Other than Noel, you would

American Idol Recap: Thank God Almighty, There's Three at Last!

It’s hard to say anything too harsh about an American Idol finalist immediately after experiencing his/her “Hometown Visit” package.

Misty-eyed mamas. Weeping dads. The contestants themselves embracing Fox affiliate meteorologists, kissing schoolkids and choking back their emotions when they realize they’re officially stars (or something pretty damn close).

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Performances, Hometown Visits and Elimination
After last week's screwy episode, all bets are off on how Wednesday's (May 6) episode of "American Idol" will handle its performances and its elimination. In theory, we've got three performances coming up from each contestant tonight, but will we get three performances from the Top 3 following a mid-show elimination? If that's the case, does that mean that one contestant will have gotten the visit home, but will still be booted without singing thrice? Or will we have 12 performances and four Hometown Visit clip packages, even though one singer was effectively a Dead Idol Walking on that visit, having already been eliminated by the voting, even if they didn't know it? I have no clue.  Click through and follow along as I inevitably become increasingly frustrated and eventually angry... 7:59 p.m. In case you didn't hear, "Idol" is going two nights next week for the finale.
