Have Your Say: Which Locations You Visited Most Lived Up To Their Appearance In Movies?

19 hours ago | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Today I returned from a trip to Canada and the United States of America. And as I was on pleasure, not business, I visited the Empire State Building in New York with my family, and shot the (appropriately Dutch-angled) picture above. It was not my first visit to New York, but it never fails to strike me how much that city lives up to its many, many portrayals in the movies. When you're there, and you've seen a lot of films... you can't shake the feeling of "Wow, I'm There!" You can't fail to recognize the massive cluster of famous landmarks, big and small, which actually turn out to be real and exactly like they have so often been captured. Which brings me to the...

Interview: Actor Paul Dooley on Getting to Portray Dad

20 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – After he reigned as the father in the classic 1979 film “Breaking Away,” actor Paul Dooley suddenly became everyone’s Dad – and by everyone that meant Molly Ringwald (“Sixteen Candles”), Julia Roberts (“Runaway Bride”) and Helen Hunt (“Mad About You”). He tells all in Part Two of a comprehensive interview.

The former “Paul Brown’ was born in West Virginia, and studied acting at West Virginia University, before heading to New York City and a new career as Paul Dooley. He did stage work, stand-up comedy and the New York City version of The Second City. He got his big break in the original stage version of “The Odd Couple” in 1965, directed by the legendary Mike Nichols. While working the stage, he appeared in a number of commercials, eventually moving to Los Angeles to “be where the action is.”

Donald Trump garnered enough delegates to officially be named the Gop presidential nominee. On Tuesday - day two of the Republican National Convention - Trump was awarded the final delegates needed to reach the mandatory 1,237 minimum, as a number of states handed him majority of their delegates, although dozens did go to his Republican primary competitors Ted Cruz and John Kasich. Ultimately, it was Trump's home state of New York, announced by his son Donald Trump Jr., which gave him the final votes and some extras.

Lesbian Lives Matter in Summertime

18 July 2016 9:42 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Quite early on in Catherine Corsini's embraceable French import Summertime, a group of young Parisian women run through the streets, laughing aloud while pinching male asses. Viva, Simone de Beauvoir! The buttocks-ravished men are both startled and outraged. How dare they be made into sexual objects. One gent even starts attacking a lass, but to her rescue comes farm-girl/tractor-driver/physically strapping Delphine (Izïa Higelin).

Please note the year is 1971 and feminism is a-brewing, pleasantly knocking the closeted, recent rural-escapee for a loop. Suddenly, she's not in a field with gaseous bovines but in a bus encircled by attractive, long-haired, rowdy, activist Amazons, who care not a whit whether one is into scissoring or the missionary position. All sex is good. All male subordination of the "fairer" gender is bad. They even sing, "Arise, enslaved woman."

Suddenly, our enthralled heroine is attending political conscious-raising groups, helping to cause havoc at anti-abortion lectures, »

First Kong: Skull Island Photo Promises One Giant Ape

15 July 2016 5:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. confirmed that their new King Kong adventure Kong: Skull Island will be one of the movies presented during their Hall H presentation at Comic-Con next week, along with Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and The Lego Batman Movie. It is believed that the first trailer for Kong: Skull Island will be unveiled during this panel, but while we wait for the action to unfold in Hall H, the studio has released a new photo, which teases just how big this version of King Kong really is.

Last week, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts revealed that this will be the biggest King Kong ever put on the big screen, teasing that he'd be over 100 feet tall. This photo doesn't feature the massive ape himself, but we do get a glimpse at Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and »

Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson in new image from Kong: Skull Island

15 July 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its Comic-Con panel next week, Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new image from Kong: Skull Island which sees Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson among the skeletal remains of a rather large creature…

It’s previously been revealed that the the movie’s Kong will be around 100 foot tall, and director Jordan Vogt-Roberts elaborated on the scale of the creatures inhabiting Skull Island, stating that: “From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore. Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island. In terms of actual size, our Kong is by far the biggest Kong. Peter Jackson’s Kong was around 25 feet. The ‘33 Kong ranged between 25 feet and 50 feet, I want to say he »

The photos keep coming from Entertainment Weekly's Comic Con issue with the newest being the first official still from Jordan Vogt-Roberts' "Kong: Skull Island" at Legendary Pictures.

"From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore. Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you've seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.

Peter Jackson's Kong was around 25 feet. The '33 Kong ranged between 25 feet and 50 feet, I want to say he was 50-plus feet when he was on the Empire State Building. »

Our first proper image from Kong: Skull Island is here, bringing us the first look at Tom Huddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, and one gigantic monkey skull.

Ghostbusters Review

Ghostbusters Gallery 1 of 12   

Click to skip More From The Web

My early skepticism surrounding 2016’s Ghostbusters revamp had nothing to do with female heroes or sad YouTube hatred. Simply put, cadaver-cold trailers and Doa clips did nothing but pander to branded appeal and adopt low-hanging punchlines. No wow-factor, revitalized excitement, or semblance of scripted ambition. Did we really need one more ’80s reboot in our lives?

As it turns out, the answer is yes – when it’s Paul Feig at the helm, we do.

Just like how weak trailers for Spy and The Heat led perceptions astray, Ghostbusters cohesively clicks together in ways that two-minute teasers could never properly represent. Feig’s updated take on New York City’s paranormal infestation takes estrogen-fueled digs at piggish masculinity, to hilarious effect, without ever becoming a girl’s-club exclusive. Why I lost faith in Feig I have no idea, especially with all »

The Secret Life Of Pets Review

6 July 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like a playful game of fetch, The Secret Life Of Pets finds mindless entertainment in repetitive predictability. You won’t get Pixar levels of emotional heft or glistening, hyper-realistic animation, only an Add-paced appreciation of child-pleasing, slapstick animated comedy.

Stacked against The Jungle Book‘s visual artistry and Finding Dory’s heartfelt nature, The Secret Life Of Pets opts for expected (yet always hilarious) rabbit poop jokes – not every student graduates with top honors, you know. Writers Ken Daurio, Brian Lynch, and Cinco Paul draw up a sweet owner/companion dynamic between characters, and even though scripted depth stops at “loyal companionship,” there’s still a pleasantly goofy amount of laughs worth sharing with cackling adolescent audiences. Adorable, easy laughs…but laughs nonetheless.

Michael Barbieri Joins Spider-man: Homecoming

6 June 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After his breakout role in the well-received Sundance film Little Men, co-star Michael Barbieri landed a role in The Dark Tower film as Timmy, Jake's (Tom Taylor) close friend before he's drawn to Roland (Idris Elba) and his ka-tet.  Following that role, it appears that Barbieri will be co-starring in Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming.  No details are currently available on the role he'll be playing but it seems likely that Barbieri (14) would play a high school contemporary of Holland's Peter Parker.   Could he be playing Harry Osborn? As a few commenters have pointed out, in the comics, Peter didn't actually meet Harry, Gwen and co. until he enrolled at Empire State University.  Peter's supporting cast at Midtown High and Empire were very different.  Still, placing Harry at Midtown wouldn't be the first time Marvel has taken a few liberties with the source material.  Usually, there tweaks work out for the better. »

Sony Pictures Entertainment continues developing writer/director Shane Black's take on pulp magazine hero "Doc Savage" for producer Neil Moritz and Columbia Pictures, with a well-known genre actor now cast as 'Savage':

Dwayne Johnson, one of the biggest men in film @ 6' 5" and 260 lbs., will play the copper-toned pulp magazine hero. 

"...'Doc Savage' is proceeding on pace," said Black. "...as 'Iron Man' wound down I sort of reconnected with Sony who have been gracious to say, 'We’ll wait a year and sit on these rights until you’re finished with this other picture that we don’t control.' So they were really cool about it, they were really nice. So yeah I’m back on it."

Originally published in pulp mags during the 1930's, 'Doc Savage' was created by publisher Henry W. Ralston and editor John L. Nanovic at Street and Smith Publications, »
