Tamed Aliens, Harmonic Nuns and a Leather Catsuit: Strange Tales from 1992’s Summer of Cinema

Author: Cai Ross

The summer movie season of 1992 opened under a cloud; a dark cloud from the still-smouldering buildings that had burned to the ground during the La riots in April. Racial tension after the disastrous acquittal of Rodney King’s uniformed attackers had reached an all-time high and Hollywood appealed for calm.

Thus, in a touchingly bold demonstration of selfless generosity, Walter Hill’s unremarkable urban thriller, The Looters, was hastily withdrawn and held back until Christmas, re-christened Trespass (memorably starring two Bills – Paxton and Sadler – and a pair of Ices – T and Cube). Elsewhere, it was business as usual.

The Rodney King affair was briefly alluded to in Lethal Weapon 3, the second-biggest hit of the summer and one of only a handful of ‘sure things’ on the menu. Though there were mutterings about the dominance of sequels in the summer movie season, there were weird things afoot in most of the other returnees. Aside from Lethal Weapon 3 – which was essentially a watered down Lethal Weapon 2 with too much added Joe Pesci – the rest of the sequels veered off into strange tangents, with varying results.

Alien 3, for example strayed dangerously far from the template set down by the first two classics. Bravely, it has to be said, David Fincher tried to create a quasi-religious epic, following Scott’s horror movie and Cameron’s war film. Latterly, Fincher’s frustrations and behind-the-scenes interferences became legendary, but audiences didn’t click with his compromised vision and it became the first in a long line of Alien movies to fall a bit flat.

Another major sequel, Honey, I Blew Up The Baby was in fact the complete opposite of 1989’s Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, culminating in the spectacle of a 99 foot toddler stomping through Las Vegas. It was directed without enthusiasm by Grease director Randal Kleiser, reminding audiences once again why no one remembers who directed Grease.

It wasn’t just sequels that dared to be different. One of the strangest mainstream offerings of the year was Robert Zemeckis’s black comedy, Death Becomes Her, which might have been a delicious satire on America’s vain obsession with cosmetic surgery if only Bruce Willis had stopped shouting at everyone like he was trying to prevent a plane crash.

Back in the ‘90s, much more so than today, comedies were a vital part of the summer success story – an inexpensive sop for the grown-ups while their teenage kids watched things explode in Screen 7. There were high hopes for Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn’s Housesitter, which was only a medium-sized hit, despite the bit where Steve Martin sings ‘Tura Lura Lura’ to his dad, and the other bit when his falls over his couch.

Boomerang was a bigger hit and restored some credibility to Eddie Murphy’s career after the crippling one-two punches of Harlem Nights and Another 48 Hours. It was also responsible for one of the great ironic ‘First Dance At a Wedding’ songs, Boys II Men’s The End of The Road.

Nicolas Cage embarked on a three year long career as a romantic comedy star with the rather wonderful Honeymoon in Vegas, famed for its skydiving Elvis finale. Tom Hanks and his Big director Penny Marshall reteamed to great success with wartime baseball comedy A League of Their Own, which also saw Geena Davis giving a star performance and Madonna giving a bearable one. “There’s no crying in baseball!!!” was probably the most quoted line of the summer.

As with City Slickers in 1991, comedy provided the biggest sleeper hit of the summer: Sister Act, with Whoopi Goldberg excelling as a murder witness hiding out in a convent. As with City Slickers, an unwise sequel was hastily made and hastily forgotten. The original though, was the sixth biggest film of the year and is still going strong as a west-end show to this day.

It wasn’t just the many and varied comic tastes of adults that were appeased; semi-literate young people were also provided for by Encino Man (or California Man as we knew it, since we don’t know where Encino is. It’s in California). Noted for Brendan Fraser’s first stab at the big time, this grungy caveman caper will be of interest to young contemporary archeologists keen to investigate who or what Pauly Shore was.

Teenagers were also palmed off with a silly-sounding comedy called Buffy The Vampire Slayer, written by first-time screenwriter Joss Whedon. Starring Kristy Swanson as the eponymous heroine, but marketed as a vehicle for Beverly Hills 90210 heart-throb Luke Perry, the producers had hoped for a chunk of the Bill & Ted audience that Encino Man hadn’t swallowed up. Sadly, they had to make do with a long-running spin-off television show regularly cited as one of the greatest ever made. Gnarly.

The stalking killer thriller phenomenon that started with The Silence of The Lambs and Cape Fear echoed into 1992 with solid hits like Unlawful Entry and Single White Female. Even Patriot Games – a sort-of sequel to The Hunt For Red October with Harrison Ford rebooting Alec Baldwin’s Jack Ryan – for all its CIA espionage and partial understanding of “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland, was basically a slasher movie, with Sean Bean doing to Harrison Ford what Robert De Niro had done to Nick Nolte the year before. (Sean Bean dies, obviously).

Crimes against the Emerald Isle weren’t restricted to the gratuitous amounts of Clannad in Patriot Games. Tom Cruise’s Irish accent in Ron Howard’s Far and Away was the benchmark for all bad Irish accents until Brad Pitt graciously took the relay baton in The Devil’s Own. The film, shot in glorious 70mm was the biggest risk of the summer and proved to be the dampest squib, considering the star power of Cruise and (then-wife) Nicole Kidman. Despite looking ravishing, the script had all the depth of a bottle-cap. It desperately wanted to be a timeless classic in the David Lean tradition but held up against Unforgiven, which was released in August, Far & Away was shown up as the glorified Cbbc TV special it was.

Unforgiven came out of nowhere. Clint Eastwood’s previous movie, The Rookie, was somehow even worse than 1989’s Pink Cadillac. However, he’d been sitting on David Webb Peoples’ script for years until he was finally old enough to play William Munny. An extraordinary, mature and masterful critique of Western mythology, Unforgiven was hailed as Eastwood’s best work from the get-go, took the summer’s number five spot and would later win a handful of Oscars, including Pest Picture.

So who was the box office champion of Summer ’92? Well, that question was never in any doubt. Tim Burton’s Batman was the cultural phenomenon of 1989, redefining the parameters of box office limitations and merchandise licensing in a way not seen since Star Wars. Speculation as to who Batman would fight next and who would play him/her began immediately. Dustin Hoffman was touted to play The Penguin and Annette Bening was actually cast as Catwoman, before pregnancy forced her to drop out.

On the 19th of June, all was revealed when Batman Returns opened to a spectacular $45m weekend, $5m more than the original. Michael Keaton returned as The Caped Crusader (having split up with the creditably tight-lipped Vicki Vale), while not one but three villains put up their dukes. Danny DeVito played the Penguin as a deformed, subterranean leader of a gang of circus act drop-outs. Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman (perhaps her signature role) was transformed from a clumsy secretary into a vengeful whip-wielding dominatrix. Christopher Walken borrowed ‘DocEmmett Brown’s hair to play new villain, Max Shreck.

Despite the enormous opening weekend, things took a downward turn almost immediately. Audiences expecting more of the same were treated to a dark, nose-bitingly violent combination of German Expressionism, kinky S&M and oversized rubber ducks. The box office the following week dropped by 40%, and there was further controversy when McDonalds had to deal with the ire of horrified parents across America, ‘tricked’ by their Batman Returns Happy Meals into taking their kids to watch Burton’s deranged fairy tale, pussy jokes et al.

The backlash (against what is now considered a unique high-water mark in the superhero genre), meant that Batman Returns wound up making $100m less than its predecessor and it placed third for the year, behind Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, a film so determined to give its audience a familiar experience that it simply changed the first film’s screen directions from Int. Kevin’S House – Night to Ext. New York – Night and reshot the entire script. (The box office crown for the year was taken eventually by Disney’s Aladdin.)

Warner Bros. took evasive action, hiring Joel Schumacher to sweeten the mix, which would help to restore Batman’s fortunes in 1995, before everything, literally absolutely everything went wrong in 1997 and the world had to wait for Christopher Nolan to finish attending Ucl, become a director and save the Dark Knight from the resultant ignominy.

Hollywood was given a crash course in the perils of straying too far from a winning formula in the summer of ’92. Sadly, for a while at least, it learned its lesson.

Nicolas Cage: examining his straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Feb 24, 2017

Last year we watched ten of the recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Since then, he's made six more...

This article has been updated to include six new films: Dog Eat Dog, The Trust, USS Indianapolis: Men Of Courage, Southern Fury, Army Of One and Vengeance: A Love Story.

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical

Nicolas Cage To Star In Philly Fury, Yet Another Kidnapping Movie

Stolen. Rage. Trespass. It seems like Nicolas Cage can’t stay away from movies that involve kidnapping. If those three movies were “a phase” then we can consider it one that’s ongoing, as the Cagester has signed up to star in another kidnap thriller called Philly Fury.

Steven C. Miller (Marauders, Silent Night) directs from a script by Jason Mosberg. The story is described by Variety as “about a Philadelphia businessman whose deadbeat brother is kidnapped for a large ransom – leading everyone to believe that the brother is involved in the kidnapping. Cage’s character, who’s also a mobster, is forced to take action on his own.” It sounds like plenty of Cage’s previous roles, but I never tire from watching him bring on the Cage Rage, which he probably will in this.

Before he starts work on Philly Fury, Cage is stepping behind the camera to

Ben Stiller Partners With Showtime To Tell A Super Sad True Love Story

It’s been an awful long time coming – almost a year, in fact – though today Variety is reporting that Ben Stiller is finally making some headway with his small-screen rendition of Super Sad True Love Story.

Yes, remaining true to the old adage that true love never dies, Stiller will now take the reins of the project for Showtime, working from a script produced by Karl Gajdusek of Oblivion and Trespass fame. Pitched as a social satire, Super Sad True Love Story is based on the novel of the same name by Gary Shteyngart. Whisking viewers to a not-so-distant future where the American economy is on the brink of collapse, said Love Story revolves around Lenny Abramov and his relationship with an “impossibly cute Korean American woman” named Eunice Park.

Here’s the official logline lifted from Shteyngart’s acclaimed printed, bound media artifact:

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Benedict Andrews’ Una

Sundance has always been a great launching pad for new breakout talents. Rooney Mara saw her first major part in film was as a supporting player in James C. Strouse’s The Winning Season which premiered at the fest, and veteran actor Ben Mendelsohn had his true breakout moment in Park City for David Michod’s Animal Kingdom. Perhaps the stars will for this highly anticipated directorial debut from an already established talent. First-time director Benedict Andrews is award-winning Australian theatre director who works out of Iceland and London, and judging from his body of work likely made the comfortable leap to this new set of damaged characters with Una – (formerly Blackbird) a screenplay by playwright David Harrower. Principal photography took place this past summer and the film is definitely in the editing phase. There is a small window of opportunity for a feature that will surely yield some emotionally

10 Best Nicolas Cage Movies Of The 2000s

Lionel Cironneau/AP

There are few actors in the world who are as polarising as Nicolas Cage. Depending on who is giving their opinion, The Man Formerly Known As Nicolas Kim Coppola is either one of the worst actors who ever lived and has been churning out nothing but cinematic dreck for over a decade; or he is a unique movie star who actually has an extensive back catalogue and several amazing performances in his locker.

There is very little middle ground with an actor like Cage, probably because his acting style so rarely shoots for the middle ground. He is at his best giving eccentric, energetic performances and more often than not can be seen chewing the scenery with gusto. This is exactly what some fans want from Cage, but unfortunately, is also what can turn so many others away from his work. Cage has, in fact, referred to

‘Tokarev’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Nicolas Cage, Rachel Nichols, Max Ryan, Michael McGrady, Peter Stormare, Danny Glover | Written by Jim Agnew, Sean Keller | Directed by Paco Cabezas

It doesn’t bode well for a film when it counts Jim Agnew and Sean Keller as its writers. After all the duo were responsible for penning Giallo, the film that made Dario Argento the laughing stock of Frightfest and sounded the death knell on the career of the once-master of the Italian horror genre. Then again it doesn’t bode well when a film starring Nicolas Cage makes its debut as a direct to DVD title either.

So what’s the spiel? Well:

After a life of crime in his younger years Paul Maguire (Cage), now lives a charmed life. Fully reformed from his old ways, he is now a successful businessman, with a nice house, a lovely wife (Nichols) and a wonderful daughter, who he dotes on.

Even By Nic Cage's Bizarre Standards, Outcast Looks Off-The-Wall Insane

There.s only one Nicolas Cage out there roaming the earth, right? I ask in all seriousness, because the man.s output is set to such a high level, I.m beginning to think that in his free time (what little of it there actually is), Nicolas Cage might have invented cloning. Cage also is hellbent on acting in movies no one actually sees. Raise your hand, please, if you caught The Frozen Ground (2013), Stolen (2012), Seeking Justice (2011) or Trespass (2011). Anyone? I thought so. And I.m starting to feel the same way about Outcast, which just shared its first official trailer. Needless to say, this trailer shared by Deadline looks incredible. if you love passing your days poking fun of all the crazy things Nicolas Cage will do on screen for our entertainment. Outcast, helmed by first-time filmmaker Nick Powell, pairs Cage with Star Wars outcast Hayden Christensen (of course

Nicole's Return. The Dates Are Ever Changing.

When will our beloved Kidman return to us? For someone who works so consistently, doesn't it seem like it's hard to find Nicole Kidman in a movie theater? Grace of Monaco keeps threatening to arrive but never does leaving us to wonder if it will ever play in regular movie theaters after its shaming at Cannes (that place can be brutal). Any big dreams for the quality of Paddington (it comes from charming source material at least) her Christmas film, have been dashed by that hateful slapstick trailer and Colin Firth's exit as the voice. The wait is soon over though. For those of you who missed The Railway Man in theaters, it's just out on DVD and Blu-Ray. [Warning: Nicole's part is small enough that when the climax arrives, she's literally a blurry figure in the background.]

 

Next up though is the thriller Before I Go To Sleep which has a new poster (above) and a new release date: Halloween to be exact. Let's just hope it's

New Trailers: "Left Behind," "Reclaim"

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack have been less than discerning with their film gigs in recent years, picking a lot of modestly budgeted thrillers that get poor reviews and barely go theatrical. How many remember the likes of "The Bag Man," "Drive Hard," "The Frozen Ground," "The Factory," "Seeking Justice," "Stolen," "Trespass," "Rage," or "The Numbers Station"?

Today comes trailers for two more. First up is "Left Behind," the film version of the popular book series by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins which deals with what would happen if the Christian Rapture and Apocalypse took place today. The focus here though isn't on wider society, but rather a family lead by Cage's pilot character.

The second is for Cusack's "Reclaim" which co-stars Ryan PhillippeRachelle LefevreJacki Weaver and Luis Guzman. That follows an American couple who travel to Puerto Rico to finalize an adoption, only to learn it was a scam.

Experience The Cage Rage In New Trailer For Revenge Actioner

Judging by his resume in recent years, Nicolas Cage has an axe to grind. Has he suffered an injustice in his personal life? Who knows – but two things are for certain: he’s all about payback, and short, one-word titles. We’ve had Stolen, we’ve had Trespass, we’e had Justice (alright, it was known as Seeking Justice in the Us.) Now we have his latest cinematic effort, Rage, (previously titled Tokarev) and it appears to be treading similar ground as evidenced in the newest trailer released today.

The distinctly Taken-esque plot revolves around Paul Maguire (Cage); a reformed criminal whose daughter is kidnapped by Russian mobsters. The wise choice might be to give Interpol a call, but Maguire’s steely pride gets in the way. As it should – as the ‘napping is payback for his earlier crimes. Rallying a troupe of his former crew, against the advice of a local cop,

Nicolas Cage’s Dumb Yet Fascinating ‘Trouble in Louisiana’ Trilogy

Every few years, Nicolas Cage reminds us what a compelling screen performer he is and can be. While such reminders seem fewer and further between, the utter expendability of much of his recent filmography make strong performances like his brooding lead in David Gordon Green’s Joe all the more powerful – not because we forgot about Cage’s talents, but because we’re afraid that he might have. Joe has been deemed (by this site and others) to be a “return to form” for Cage. It’s easy to declare with a handful of titles what form Cage is returning to. In celebrated roles like Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas, and Bringing Out the Dead Cage has displayed an uncanny ability to balance pathological self-destruction with varying undertones of dark comedy. He is the actor of choice for men who struggle outside the norms of society, yet wouldn’t feel comfortable anywhere else. But

Nicolas Cage: Can ‘Joe’ Take Him From Meme Back to Movie Star?

Nicolas Cage: Can ‘Joe’ Take Him From Meme Back to Movie Star?
After a string of mid-sized thriller box office disappointments, Nicolas Cage is sorely in need of his own McConaissance, the career resurgence coined for Matthew McConaughey, whose path to Oscar glory began in 2012 with low-budget hits “Mud” and “Magic Mike.”

For Cage, who earned his Oscar nearly two decades ago for “Leaving Las Vegas,” Roadside Attractions’ “Joe” — a Southern-set tale of redemption, which launches Friday — could be that necessary launchpad for renewed respect as an actor.

Outside each pic’s leading man, both of whom hit a rut at the B.O. previously, the comparisons between “Joe” and “Mud,” though mostly coincidental, provide interesting food for thought:

Both films were released by Roadside in April. “Mud” kickstarted its domestic run on April 26 and went on to become one of the highest-grossing indie releases that year, with more than $20 million Stateside. However, before their U.S. openings, each pic bowed at

The 10 underrated film performances of 2013

Top 10 Mark Harrison 6 Jan 2014 - 06:29

As ever, some spectacular performances were overlooked in last year's rush of movie releases. Here's Mark's pick of the most underrated...

Here on Den Of Geek, It's become something of a tradition that when the end of the year rolls around, and the big awards bodies almost determinedly overlook genre cinema, and that we compile a list of the underrated and underappreciated performances by actors in the last cinematic year.

We've tried to pick out turns that either went unnoticed in most reviews, or simply should have gotten more praise. It's less about the great performances that the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences are sure to overlook, than it is about giving praise where it's due.

It's unusual that this is either the most wide-open race in a while, or there aren't nearly enough people talking about who will definitely win

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1993

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 10 Oct 2013 - 03:27

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 1993...

What a year 1993 was. It saw the release of Star Fox on the Super Nintendo. Bill Clinton became president. Season three of Deep Space Nine premiered on Us television. UK politician Douglas Hurd visited Argentina. Cyndi Lauper released her album Hat Full Of Stars.

Aside from those earth shattering events, we'll probably remember 1993, in cinema terms, as the year Jurassic Park dominated the box office like an angry Tyrannosaurus. A true phenomenon, its profits doubled those of the second most watched film in 1993 cinemas, Mrs Doubtfire, and almost three times as much as the movie below that - the Harrison Ford thriller, The Fugitive.

But as ever, there was so much more to the 1993 movie landscape than dinosaurs and Robin Williams dressed as an old woman.

Second Opinion - The Frozen Ground (2013)

The Frozen Ground, 2013.

Written and Directed by Scott Walker.

Starring Nicolas Cage, John Cusack, Vanessa Hudgens, Katherine Lanasa, Radha Mitchell, and 50 Cent.

Synopsis:

An Alaska State Trooper partners with a young woman who escaped the clutches of serial killer Robert Hansen to bring the murderer to justice. Based on actual events.

Some films try to be more than their story can allow, and fail to deliver the basic elements. Other films don’t even bother trying at all and fail even more spectacularly. With The Frozen Ground, comes a film which sets out to be an average, nuts and bolts thriller and success admirably in providing a solid, if unspectacular piece of entertainment.

Based on the true story of Robert Hansen (played by John Cusack) who murdered at least 17 women (and is suspected of having killed several more) in Alaska in the early 1980s, the film’s success lies in
