Sinbad Coming Back to Television in Fox Pilot “Rel”

Bill Hader, 'SNL' Imagine Fake 'Jurassic Park' Auditions
Bill Hader and the SNL cast channeled some of 1992's biggest celebrities in a hilarious sketch imagining rejected auditions from Jurassic Park.

The bit opens with Alex Moffat conjuring Hugh Grant in his screen test for Dr. Alan Grant. "I hate to be a bother, but if you look behind you, well, there's a bit of T-Rex," he says, nailing the actor's trademark polite bumbling. Other cast highlights include Leslie Jones as Whoopi Goldberg, Mikey Day as the Pee-Wee Herman; Pete Davidson's wonky-voiced, backwards-hat era Adam Sandler and Kate McKinnon

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973) Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Euan Franklin

You can’t overstate the influence of Ray Harryhausen on Hollywood cinema. His stop-motion animation inspired the most exciting fantasies of Peter Jackson, James Cameron, John Landis, and (most obviously) Nick Park from Aardman Animation. He worked on The 7th Voyage of Sinbad in 1958 and returned to the mythical hero 15 years later (after spending the ‘60s working on Jason and the Argonauts and One Million Years B.C.) with a different cast and crew in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, which marked his first credit as a producer.

In Golden Voyage, Sinbad (John Phillip Law) and his crew intercept a homunculus flying above their ship. It carries a magic tablet, and Sinbad wears it around his neck as a boastful reward. When he visits Marabia, Sinbad meets with the golden-masked Grand Vizier (Douglas Wilmer) who tells him that the tablet is a third of an overall whole. It

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad – 45th Anniversary Q&A with Caroline Munroe, John Walsh and Vanessa Harryhausen

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Euan Franklin

It’s hard to watch a blockbuster without the influence of Ray Harryhausen. In The Golden Voyage of Sinbad alone, you see premonitions of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Pirates of the Caribbean – all inspired by Harryhausen, the only visual effects artist to be considered an auteur.

Actor Caroline Munroe, Sam Clemens (the son of screenwriter Brian Clemens), Harryhausen’s daughter Vanessa, and filmmaker John Walsh attended a 45th anniversary screening of The Golden Voyage of Sinbad at Regent Street Cinema in London. They participated in a Q&A afterwards discussing experiences on-set, details from behind the scenes, and costume malfunctions.

Caroline, you were the only woman in that film. Tell us a little bit about it.

Caroline Munroe: I suppose I was one of the early women on the set. Obviously, we have Kali [a Harryhausen creature] in all her glory. But I felt very looked after,

Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl Halftime Show Outfit Is Getting Dragged On Twitter

Twitter has a lot to say about Justin Timberlake‘s custom Stella McCartney Super Bowl Halftime performance outfit.

The pop star, who performed a range of hits from his nearly 20-year musical career during last night’s Pepsi Halftime show, was dressed in a head-to-toe Stella McCartney outfit, with the main look being a check and camouflage splatter-print suit with a red bandana neck tie accessory and “Sblii” Air Jordan III sneakers. Under the suit, Timberlake wore a button-down shirt that displayed a rural American landscape and deer, as the British designer drew inspiration from Timberlake’s new album Man of the Woods.

10 Things You Never Knew About Back to the Future II

Sports Almanac! Jaws 19! Caf&#233 80s! It's the sequel that gave us a dystopian timeline of both epic and comedic proportions, as Doc Brown took Marty McFly to the future. It's got an upside down Crispin Glover lookalike, an eerily familiar orange haired casino loving narcissist, and the hover boards every kid has coveted since 1989. Today, we look at 10 things you never knew about Back to the Future 2.

To Be Continued...

It's quite well known that Back to the Future 2 and Back to the Future 3 were shot back-to-back, in what was then a stunning move for a major studio. But while we think of the films as a trilogy now, a second Back to the Future wasn't always a given. From 1985 to 1955 and back again, Back to the Future works fantastically as a standalone story, sending Marty back to a present even better than he'd left it. Sure, there's that fun little cliffhanger,

Mark Hamill Hails ‘Star Wars’ Composer John Williams: ‘He Elevates Every Scene’

Mark Hamill Hails ‘Star Wars’ Composer John Williams: ‘He Elevates Every Scene’
“Aside from George Lucas, nobody deserves more credit for the success of `Star Wars’ than John Williams,” says Mark Hamill.

It’s a pretty bold statement from the actor who plays Luke Skywalker in five of the eight “Star Wars” movies, including a leading role in “The Last Jedi,” now the biggest-grossing movie of 2017. But then, perhaps more than most actors, Hamill appreciates the role of music in movies.

Hamill’s interest was sparked as a child, first taking note of Carl Stalling’s name as composer on old Warner Bros. cartoons, then Bernard Herrmann’s on the fantasy films of special-effects wizard Ray Harryhausen. “I saw ‘Jason and the Argonauts’ on a double bill with ‘7th Voyage of Sinbad,'” Hamill tells Variety. “I could hum the main-title themes from the time I saw them.

Once he realized that Herrmann was the same composer who had terrified moviegoers with his music for “Psycho,” he was even

‘Mr. Robot’ Season 3 Review: The Rising Apocalypse Is Some of the Year’s Most Fascinating TV

‘Mr. Robot’ Season 3 Review: The Rising Apocalypse Is Some of the Year’s Most Fascinating TV
There’s a moment in the season premiere of “Mr. Robot” when the show full-on embraces a key element of its iconography: Elliot’s (Rami Malek) distinctive black hoodie. Watching it get zipped up is a moment on par with watching Superman emerge from the phone booth, except Elliot isn’t a superhero. Instead, the main character of the USA Network hacker drama is a split personality gone amuck, even more so in the chaos of Season 3.

For a certain kind of brain, diving into a new season of “Mr. Robot” is truly fun. This might be an odd thing to say about a show mired in an increasingly quasi-apocalyptic reality, one rife with suspicion and mystery, but creator Sam Esmail’s imagination has always given the show a lively energy, and the first six episodes reveal an intense game plan along with a number of new dynamics.

"The Sinbad Trilogy"- 6 Disc Blu-ray/DVD Limited Edition Set From Indicator

A Mixed Bag In A Big Box

By Darren Allison

‘I was there; I was in that picture, fighting the Cyclops on the beach, running from the dragon! I was enthralled. It's one of my strongest childhood memories.’ It’s very hard to argue with director John Landis’s vivid account of his earliest memories and the fantasy films of Ray Harryhausen and producer Charles H. Schneer. They seemed to touch us all in an indelible manner and took us into a fantasy realm far beyond our imagination. Indicator has (for the first time in the UK) combined the three Sinbad adventures in one very handsomely produced package. It’s a magical box that has very little trouble in sending us on a journey, and back to a place called innocence…

The Seventh voyage of Sinbad (1958) was something of a revelation back in its day. Ray Harryhausen’s pioneering stop-motion

Sinbad Outraged by 'Pill Cosby' Drink at D.C. Bar (Video + Photo)

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_4fiddz4o"]] Sinbad thinks a D.C. bar serving a cocktail that mocks the Bill Cosby case is the exact opposite of funny ... in fact, it's just wrong. We got the comedian Monday at Lax and asked him about the bar -- called Diet Starts Monday -- pouring a "Pill Cosby" ... complete with empty pill capsules. Sinbad doesn't mince words here -- he says it's not a joke, and his stance has nothing to do with defending Cosby's name.

‘Shazaam’ Is Real: College Humor ‘Finds’ Long-Lost Sinbad Genie Movie That Doesn’t Actually Exist

‘Shazaam’ Is Real: College Humor ‘Finds’ Long-Lost Sinbad Genie Movie That Doesn’t Actually Exist
If you thought the “Shazaam” phenomenon was over, what with the fleeting nature of the never-ending meme cycle, then you may have mixed feelings about an April Fool’s video released by College Humor yesterday. Presented as two minutes of found footage from the film in question — a nonexistent and vaguely racist conflation of “Kazaam,” in which Shaq plays a genie, and Sinbad’s ’90s oeuvre — the video asserts that “Shazaam” does in fact exist.

Classic 90s Movies Turning 20 in 2017

Classic 90s Movies Turning 20 in 2017
Time has a way of rolling on doesn't it? The 1990s were a great hodge-podge of 1980s leftovers and a the future all rolled into one. So it stands to reason that some of the movies we got from that time, even though they were completed, sort of felt incomplete upon their release 20 years ago. In fact, it seems to take something like a 20th anniversary for certain films to be deemed important. It might lead one to ask if the 1990s had any classic or iconic movies?

It would be easy to write a lot of these films off. Lord knows many a critic did, however, when you take a solid look at this list, many of these films have stood the test of time. Some of have even become iconic movies. The mere fact that they are even on a list of this nature is a testament to this.
