Class of 1986: Johnny 5 Creator Eric Allard Discusses His Iconic Work on Short Circuit

12 July 2016 5:16 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On May 9th, 1986, John Badham’s Short Circuit debuted in theaters nationwide. The family adventure film with a sci-fi twist starred Steve Guttenberg, Ally Sheedy, and Fisher Stevens as a group of humans trying to protect a sentient robot by the name of Number 5—as he’s known to the government agencies chasing him—who goes rogue after electrocution causes him to develop a sense of identity and the constant need for “more input.”

Short Circuit was a smash success upon its release, opening number one at the box office and eventually taking in over $40 million during its theatrical run in the spring and early summer of 1986. And while Short Circuit did as well as it did partly because of the actors involved, there’s no denying that it was the film’s robotic co-star that pretty much stole the film and became a huge part of mid-’80s pop culture as well. »

From ‘The Bfg’ to ‘Matilda’: How 5 Roald Dahl Books Landed on the Big Screen

29 June 2016 4:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roald Dahl famously loathed all the movie adaptations of his books, including the 1971 classic “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” starring Gene Wilder. So when the beloved author died in 1990, his widow Felicity (who goes by Liccy) was torn about what to do with his catalogue. It was a time, following the hit comedy “Home Alone,” where the major studios were vigorously chasing family-friendly tales, and many of Dahl’s stories fit the bill. But Liccy didn’t want celebrated bestsellers such as “Matilda” or “James and the Giant Peach” falling into the wrong hands.

Dahl’s publisher at Penguin Books set up a few meetings, and she eventually connected with literary agent Michael Siegel. They bonded right away. “I don’t want there to be bad movies,” Liccy told him. They came up with an unorthodox, boutique approach. “Rather than sell the stories directly to the studios, we would »

‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’ Offers Up An Appropriately Strange New Trailer – Watch

20 June 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Director Tim Burton has long trafficked in stories about mysterious outsiders who have strange abilities that lead them to great (and often pretty scary) things, all in service to some major cinematic achievements. From “Edward Scissorhands” to “Frankenweenie” to “Big Fish” and everything in between, weird and imaginative stories and characters are Burton’s bag, and his latest offering, a big screen take on the popular Ya “Miss Peregrine’s” series from author Ransom Riggs, fits that bill perfectly.

Tim Burton Gives an Update on ‘Beetlejuice 2’

10 May 2016 8:37 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

I honestly can’t think of a sequel I’d be more interested in seeing than Beetlejuice 2. Yes, I’ve made it clear on a number of occasions that I’m not the biggest fan of director Tim Burton’s work after the 90’s, aside from Big Fish. But the thought of Winona Ryder and Michael Keaton reprising their […] »

'Monsterpocalypse' Film Adaptation Is In Studio Bidding War, 'Evil Dead' Remake Director Fede Alvarez Attached

29 April 2016 7:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If there's anything that can be counted on in this world, it's that Hollywood will always be on the lookout for the next big film franchise, even if it's in the unlikeliest places, e.g. board games. The Hollywood Reporter announced that studios like Warner Bros., DreamWorks, and Sony are currently bidding over a "Monsterpocalypse" movie, an adaptation of the popular board game where humans in robot suits fight against monsters. The project has been in development since 2010 when an adaptation with director Tim Burton ("Pee-Wee's Big Adventure") and screenwriter John August ("Big Fish") attached, but it eventually stalled after Guillermo del Toro filmed "Pacific Rim," a movie that also pits humans in robot suits against monsters. Needless to say, sources close to the project say that the new project is much different than the original conception as well as "Pacific Rim." Read More: Guillermo Del Toro To Direct 'Fantastic. »

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice: Burton-themed bar opens in New York

29 April 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The director’s film work has been translated into cocktail format – and the gothed-up customers seemed to be finding it just as potent

There was an atmosphere of cheerful chaos at the unofficial opening of Beetle House, a Tim Burton-themed bar in New York’s East Village, on Wednesday night.

An actor dressed as Beetlejuice – one of the idiosyncratic director’s most famous creations – greeted customers at the door with a stream of crude innuendo, while inside, the patrons – mostly female, many dressed in goth or Beetlejuice-themed clothing – sat up at the crowded bar drinking cocktails such as Jack Skellington (a reference to The Nightmare Before Christmas), the Fleet Street Martini (Sweeney Todd), or the Big Fish Bowl, or at tables surrounded by artwork and bric a brac evoking his films.

Happy Birthday, Ewan McGregor

31 March 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Kieran, here. Today, we celebrate the birthday of one of the screen’s most magnetic (and gallingly non-Oscar nominated) stars, Ewan McGregor.

Looking at McGregor’s filmography, there are definite peaks and valleys though that's to be expected with any performer who has been active for over two decades. For McGregor, a lot of the valleys occurred in recent years, but man…those peaks are impressive, aren’t they? The best of Ewan McGregor makes us hopeful for what the future holds for the talented Scotsman. He makes his feature-film directorial debut this year with American Pastoral, which he also stars in alongside Jennifer Connelly, Dakota Fanning and “Orange is the New Black” breakout star (and awards magnet) Uzo Aduba. He also has a sequel to Trainspotting, the role that put him on the map, in the works. Rather than speculating about who he should work with, what projects he »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: Alice in Wonderland

21 March 2016 7:27 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

It’s time to talk remakes and we’re delving into Disney again with their two versions of one of the most famous children’s stories ever. With a sequel coming out this May, it’s a good time to dissect the previous cinematic adaptation of Alice in Wonderland (2010).

When Lewis Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865, he created the best-ever example of the ‘Literary Nonsense’ genre. It’s become an enduring classic for 150 years. It’s been adapted many times. The most famous version is the 1951 animated classic Alice in Wonderland by Disney Studios. It’s one of Disney’s most visually interesting films, because the storyline is so artfully illogical and filled with characters who were meant to be animated. It utilizes some great voice actors, perfectly suited for their roles.

It’s not necessary to explain such a familiar story. We all know the Mad Hatter, »

'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Trailer Shows a New Mutants Paradise

It's as if Ransom Riggs wrote the Ya fantasy book Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children just so it'd be made into a movie by the man behind the movies Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish and the drawings of strange children in his own book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.  It's also sort of what a Tim Burton-directed X-Men movie might look like.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Trailer Looks Enchanting And Thrilling

15 March 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There are few directors who can mix endearing and weird quite as well as Tim Burton. Now, the man behind Big Fish and Edward Scissorhands is back with another story that looks to be equal parts sweet and scary. Check out the trailer for Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine.s Home for Peculiar Children.   The film stars a perfectly cast Eva Green as the titular Miss Peregrine. Green is able to play strong and sweet in equal measure and this role looks to be tailor-made for her. She runs a home which feels like the cultured English version of Xavier.s School for Gifted Youngsters. The description is even more fitting considering the screenplay was written by Jane Goldman, the screenwriter of X-Men: First Class. Based on the series of books by Ransom Riggs, Asa Butterfield (Ender.s Game) plays Jake, a boy who befriends the children at the house, »

8 March 2016 5:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Laurence here with a couple of juicy actress news tidbits. After a string of well-cast disappointments, we're all hoping for a return to Tim Burton magic this year with his new film Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. We finally have some images from the film, which has what might be Burton's most formidable (live-action) cast since Big Fish, including Judi Dench, Samuel L. Jackson, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens and Rupert Everett. Whoa.

Most importantly, though, here's Eva Green in the title role. [More...]

'Watchmen' Star To Join 'Alien: Covenant'?

26 February 2016 7:03 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ordinarily, when you're making the ninth film in a series that began as a sci-fi horror movie you're not able to get major stars to appear in it. But when that film is Alien: Covenant, and the director is Ridley Scott- the visionary that started it all- things play out under a completely different set of rules. The cast for Scott's movie already includes names like Michael Fassbender, Demian Bichir, Danny McBride, and Katherine Waterston. Now, according to a new report, another notable name could be ready to climb aboard.

Deadline is reporting that Billy Crudup, star of such films as Almost Famous, Big Fish, and Watchmen, is eyeing a key role in Alien: Covenant. While the specifics of the role are presently unknown, what is known is that the actor is in advanced negotiations, so it's practically a lock that he'll be a part of the proceedings.

The Original 'Game of Thrones' Pilot Was a 'Painful' 'Piece of S--t'

5 February 2016 8:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The original "Game of Thrones" pilot has become the stuff of television legend, since it featured significantly different plots, and several different main actors, from the final product that audiences saw on HBO back in 2011, and was widely considered pretty terrible. Now, the showrunners have recently discussed just how bad their first crack at adapting George R.R. Martin's books really was, and it turns out that that first pilot was "a complete piece of s--t."

That assessment came courtesy of screenwriter Craig Mazin (the "Hangover" sequels, "Identity Thief"), who together with fellow writer John August ("Big Fish") runs the podcast Scriptnotes. The pair hosted "Thrones" showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff on a recent episode for a frank discussion about the fantasy drama's pilot, which Mazin saw at a screening for friends organized by Weiss and Benioff back in 2010.

It didn't go well.
