Every Stephen King Movie, Ranked Worst to Best (Photos)

Every Stephen King Movie, Ranked Worst to Best (Photos)
Stephen King isn’t just an author by this point: He’s an institution, a legacy of classic horror stories that capture our imaginations, fuel our nightmares, and speak — when he’s at his best — to our shared experiences as flawed, emotional beings. The best King stories scare so many of us that we all feel connected, and even the worst are usually pretty fun.

King’s books and short stories quickly became hit movies, many of them celebrated in their time, and some flopped so hard that hardly anybody remembers them. Cataloguing every adaptation might be a fool’s errand, so we made some tough choices and decided to focus only on his theatrical releases.

And even then, there are so many King adaptations that it gets tricky. We’re not including the made-for-tv films (which are legion), and the sequels to King’s work rarely have anything to do with the source material,

How to run a tiny box office market like Malta

Charles Pace has worked at Fda-owned Krs Releasing for 65 years.

It is a tiny outpost of UK film distribution but one that generates over €5 million in box office revenue and around 800,000 admissions annually. Its most popular film is James Cameron’s Titanic, which grossed just under €1 million in 1997, closely followed by Bohemian Rhapsody last year.

Welcome to Malta. The island country was part of the British Empire for over 150 years and its film culture still has a distinctly UK flavour. With a population of 432,000, the frequency of cinema visits per head was 1.84 in 2018. Total box office reached £4.7m in

Emilio Estevez Left Studio Films for Indies: ‘My Accountant Curses that Choice — Still’

Emilio Estevez Left Studio Films for Indies: ‘My Accountant Curses that Choice — Still’
Emilio Estevez puts his money where his mouth is: More than two decades ago, after headlining some of the most era-defining youth-culture hits of the 1980s — “The Outsiders,” “The Breakfast Club,” “St. Elmo’s Fire” — he left the studios behind and rebranded himself an independent filmmaker.

“My accountant curses that choice — still,” Estevez said. “Like, ‘How we gonna? … You’re 20 years in arrears.’ He doesn’t really sound like that, but it sounds like that to me. I finally just said, ‘I’m not gonna participate in the types of films other people want me to make. I’m gonna make films that matter to me.’” Estevez even went so far as to self-distribute his last movie, “The Way,” starring his father Martin Sheen as a man who walks Spain’s famed pilgrim’s trail, the Camino de Santiago.

Nor is his latest movie, “The Public,” opening April 5 in a

Every Lakeith Stanfield Role Is Worth Your Immediate Attention
We're still losing sleep over Jordan Peele's 2017 hit film, Get Out, and that was in large part due to Lakeith Stanfield's terrifyingly unnerving performance as Andre Hayworth. Recently, we were minding our own business, impatiently waiting for Jordan Peele's next spine-tingling film, Us, to hit theaters, when we spotted Stanfield in the trailer for Netflix's Someone Great. Since then, we've been doing a deep dive into Stanfield's other compelling roles.

Stanfield has been making waves in the cinematic world ever since his breakout role in the 2013 film Short Term 12. It was actually filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton's thesis project at San Diego State University. When Cretton decided to go the distance and evolve his thesis project into a feature-length film, he reached out to Stanfield again to reprise his role. Stanfield was even nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

It turns out Stanfield is no stranger to the horror genre.

SXSW 2019 Interview: Daily Dead Chats with Villains Directing Duo Dan Berk and Robert Olsen

Headed into the 2019 SXSW Film Festival, I had suspected that Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s comedic crime caper Villains (you can read my review Here) would end up stealing the show (so to speak), and so it was a delightful surprise to see the film get so warmly embraced, becoming one of the most buzzed about movies playing in Austin last week.

And while in attendance at the fest, Daily Dead was thrilled to speak with both filmmakers about the inspirations behind the script for Villains, the challenges of balancing the film’s tonal shifts, bringing together their brilliant ensemble, which includes Bill Skarsgård, Maika Monroe, Jeffrey Donovan, and Kyra Sedgwick, and more.

Congratulations on the film, guys. I just loved this so much. I’d love to start off by talking about this story, finding this great energy in the material and balancing everything out tonally. It’s just all really great stuff.

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Actor in a Drama Series

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Actor in a Drama Series
Last Year’s Winner: Matthew Rhys, “The Americans

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: This is more of a cold streak, but a good one: Kevin Spacey will likely never win an Emmy. Despite 12 nominations overall and five nods in this category alone, the two-time Oscar winning actor — who now stands indicted for sexual assault — never won the TV Academy’s highest honor. Only three other lead actors have been nominated more without winning (and their odds of landing a trophy before it’s all said and done are much better than Spacey’s): Michael C. Hall, Hugh Laurie, and Martin Sheen all have been nominated as lead drama actors six times.

Fun Fact: Only Robert Young has won multiple Emmys as a lead actor in a drama series for two different roles. He won in 1956 and 1957 for playing insurance agent Jim Anderson in NBC’s “Father Knows Best,” before

‘Grace and Frankie’ Creator Reveals Ernie Hudson Return – PaleyFest
Season 6 of Grace and Frankie promises the return of a popular character and the addition of a new one. The cast and co-creators of the Netflix comedy filled fans in on the series Saturday afternoon at PaleyFest in Hollywood.

Taking part in the conversation were series stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterston, Martin Sheen, Ethan Embry, Baron Vaughn and June Diane Raphael. Also attending were co-creators and executive producers, Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris.

Kauffman revealed Ernie Hudson, who played Tomlin’s love interest Jacob on previous episodes, will be returning.

“The electricity between them was so vibrant,” Kauffman said to applause. “We will be seeing him in season 6.”

Another big question was when and if Dolly Parton — Fonda and Tomlin’s 9 to 5 co-star, will appear on the series.

Fonda said it depends on “the time and her schedule. She wants to, but she’s busy.”

While a Parton appearance remains uncertain,

Top 20 Greatest Living Actors Never Nominated for an Oscar
Jim Carrey once called himself the “Tom Hanks of the Golden Globes” after his second straight victory with the Hollywood Foreign Press in 2000 (for “Man on the Moon” following “The Truman Show”). He could win with that group but somehow couldn’t impress Oscar voters. And he’s not the only actor in that situation. Tour our photo gallery featuring Carrey among the 20 actors who’ve never been nominated for an Oscar.

Even Academy Awards hosts such as Billy Crystal and Steve Martin haven’t been noticed by Oscar voters other than seeing them perform on the ceremony stage. They have both received critics awards and Golden Globe nominations in their long careers. Martin has at least received an honorary Oscar, as has Donald Sutherland, but alas no individual nomination for either one throughout their careers.

Other Golden Globe film winners have included Colin Farrell (“In Bruges”), Richard Gere (“Chicago

'Grace and Frankie' review: Season 5 of Netflix show is funny but familiar

NetflixIf you're a fan of the show, season 5 has plenty on offer to keep you happy.Saraswati DatarWhen the first season of Grace and Frankie launched five years ago, its big talking point was the formidable star cast led by fantastic actors like Jane Fonda, Lilly Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston. But no one really knew if a show about two seventy-year-old frenemies who find themselves thrown together when their husbands come out as gay lovers and want to marry each other would really work. Created by Marta Kauffman, one of the co-creators of Friends, and Howard J Morris, Grace and Frankie is now in its fifth season with all episodes streaming on Netflix. Season 4 of the show ended on a characteristically hilarious yet poignant note when Grace Hanson (Jane Fonda) and Frankie Bergstein (Lilly Tomlin) break out of an old age retirement home that their kids tricked them into moving.

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: Season 5 Is Fun, Silly, and Running Out of Time
If Rust Cohle walked into Grace and Frankie’s beach house, snapped open a Lone Star, and started talking about time as a flat circle, Jane Fonda’s unflappable hostess would slip a coaster under his tall boy and make herself a martini. Lily Tomlin’s relentlessly positive hippie would probably crack a joke about some old peyote trip that had her seeing in 2-D for weeks.

But they’d know what he’s talking about. These time-tested broads recognize how history repeats itself. They know many of life’s moments come back around in one way or another, and the weight of the past can be crushing. Their only twist on Matthew McConaughey’s tortured musings would be that they want the circle to continue; instead of feeling trapped in a constant loop of pain, they’d look for ways to keep things spinning. Because in Season 5, the best
