Michael Parks, Beloved Character Actor and Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith Regular, Passes Away at 77

10 May 2017 9:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michael Parks, longtime Hollywood mainstay and beloved character actor and singer, has passed away at the age of 77. The news was announced by filmmaker Kevin Smith, who took to his Instagram to share that “the best actor I’ve ever known” and his “cinematic muse,” had died. No cause of death was named.

Smith directed Parks in both his “Tusk” and “Red State,” having relished the longtime actor’s career since first seeing him in Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn.” Though Parks’ career stretched back to 1960, when he made his screen debut on TV’s “Zane Grey Theater,” in recent years, the supporting standout had enjoyed a revival at the hands of both Quentin Tarantino (who Smith deemed Parks’ “biggest fan”) and Smith, who continued to craft roles for the singular actor.

The 25 greatest movies about making movies

3 May 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison May 19, 2017

From the currently playing Their Finest to the likes of Bowfinger and Boogie Nights, we salute the movies about making movies...

If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.

Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice gets a buddy cop-inspired fan-made trailer

1 May 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The wacky Internet is utilizing its creativity again, this time with a fan-made trailer from Chief Brody Rules for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that envisions the blockbuster as a buddy cop action comedy in the same vein as classics such as Lethal Weapon.

Throughout the course of the three-minute trailer are footage and sound clips from many other films (some from the Dceu and some not), along with a lighthearted soundtrack that certainly switches up the tone from what Zack Snyder delivered with the DC blockbuster. Check out the silliness below…
