This Is the 'Midnight Cowboy' Legacy, From A to Z

23 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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).

Terminator 5: What We Know So Far About Genesis

8 May 2014 8:27 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Terminator movies are certainly considered one of the best sci-fi movie franchises ever, but it hit a serious speed bump in 2009. The McG-directed Terminator Salvation cost an incredibly expensive $200 million, and not only failed to open at number one on its opening weekend (losing to Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian), but only wound up making $125 million domestically. After years of the rights being bounced around between owners, finally the franchise is ready to get going again with Terminator 5, a.k.a. Terminator: Genesis. Paramount Pictures has dated the next chapter in the series for July 1, 2015, but what can we expect from the movie? Which characters from previous movies are coming back? Who is starring? Read on to find out what we know so far! The Director Alan Taylor has spent years working on the small screen, his work on HBO shows like Game of Thrones, »

Al Capone In "Cicero"

25 February 2014 2:32 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Development continues on "Cicero" starring actor Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises") as ruthless 1920's gangster 'Al Capone'.

Hardy said he has been working closely with Warner Bros, "watching their gangster films — the ones with James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G.’s interesting to get them, and a bit of Capone, into the bloodstream… The idea isn’t to remake those films but to get a flavour of them as we explore Capone’s career as a racketeer."

The "Cicero" screenplay is by Walon Green, noted for writing director 'Bloody Sam' Peckinpah's classic western "The Wild Bunch".

Actors previously playing Capone in film include Rod Steiger, "Al Capone" (1959), Neville Brand, "The George Raft Story (1961), Jason Robards, "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre" (1967), Buddy Lester, "Poor Devil" (1973), Ben Gazzara, "Capone" (1975), Robert De Niro, "The Untouchables" (1987), Eric Roberts, "The Lost Capone" (1990), Anthony Lapaglia, "Road to Perdition" (2002), Jon Bernthal, »

Night at the Museum 3 Lands Rebel Wilson

9 January 2014 3:55 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With her ABC sitcom Super Fun Night still going strong, comedian Rebel Wilson has decided to make her next big screen appearance with a supporting role in the comedy sequel Night at the Museum 3.

Other confirmed cast members include Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan, who all reprise their roles from the previous two movies. The only other newcomer besides Rebel thus far is Dan Stevens, best known for his work on Downton Abbey. He is being set up as the villain, Sir Lancelot of the Roundtable.
