'Explorers' Remake Being Planned at Paramount

'Explorers' Remake Being Planned at Paramount
Get out the flamethrowers! Paramount Pictures is planning a remake of the 1985 sci-fi family classic Explorers, from Gremlins director Joe Dante.

The original story follows three outcast teenage boys who bond over the creation of a homemade spaceship that sends them into the deepest reaches of the galaxy, where they meet an adolescent alien that has been weaned on TV. Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix and Bobby Fite starred as the three best friends. The movie flopped at the box office, after its release date got moved up and its third act had to be hastily rewritten on the fly. It found a strong second life on VHS to become an 80s classic. Some believe it fell under Steven Spielberg's Amblin Film's banner, but he was not a producer on the movie.

Details on what this new version of Explorers looks like is being kept under wraps. One insider compared

365 Days, 100 Films #50 - Stand By Me (1986)

Stand By Me, 1986.

Directed by Rob Reiner.

Starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Jerry O'Connell, Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland, Bradley Gregg, Casey Siemaszko, John Cusack, Gary Riley and Richard Dreyfuss.

Synopsis:

Four young boys go looking for a dead body in late 50s America.

“I was 12 going on 13 the first time I saw a dead human being…”

The film’s melancholy first line, in voice over, echoes around the man onscreen. He sits in a car on an empty road reading the paper. It’s open on a story of a slain lawyer, shot dead in an attempt to break up a fight. It triggers that memory – a missing child, knocked down by a train, he and his friends had found in the woods. Not the corpse of his own, beloved brother who had died the year before, at whose funeral he did not cry.

The scene is a bookend. We

[DVD Review] Stand by Me - 25th Anniversary

Some subgenres see pretty clear divides run down their middle according to certain criteria. One is the buddy comedy, where depending on the film’s intent to target male or female audiences, there will be a pretty safe difference in the kind of comedy used. Look at Dumb and Dumber and Clueless, each one caters safely to one gender or the other, though both films can arguably be enjoyed by both. Then you have the coming of age drama where this divide persists. Again you have a great parallel between Stand by Me and Now & Then, stories about revisiting a key point in youth. As a guy, I may be somewhat biased, but for my money both Dumb and Dumber and Stand by Me win in their respective categories by miles; Stand by Me however is miles ahead of its counterpart and stands up to the test of time in many ways.

Kellan Lutz To Star In Cedars of Lebanon

Amidst all the Twilight Saga: New Moon hype, Kellan Lutz decides to shed his fangs for his next project. As reported by The Wrap, Lutz will star in the family drama Cedars of Lebanon, where Bradley Gregg, who you might remember as Eyeball Chambers from Stand By Me, makes his directorial début. Lutz will play one of two brothers abandoned by their father and left to grow up on their own. Lutz is one of a handful of actors experiencing instant fame thanks to the world.s obsession with glittery vampires. He can enjoy his newfound stardom for now, but the Twilight Saga has to end at some point and it.ll be vital for Lutz to establish himself as a serious actor before that day comes. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may never re-emerge from the bland and lifeless holes they.ve dug with their characters, Bella Swan ...

A Nightmare On Elm Street: 10 Kool Krueger Kills

Freddy (Robert Englund exclusively, as of now) Krueger is one of horrors most iconic figures. The hideous past, the hideous face, the easily anticipated, but humorous one-liners, they’ve all helped to create a star that continues to shine today. But the best attribute Freddy possesses is an uncanny ability to manufacture creative and grizzly methods of victim disposal.

Examine a few other long running franchises, and really evaluate the quality of their sequels. The majority lose all fear factor, and loads of appeal to boot. This happens because the lines of creativity gradually disappear. We know that Michael Myers will wield his kitchen knife until the final moment of the final reel on Halloween night. We know that Jason Voorhees will celebrate every Friday The 13th with a machete. Pinhead’s going to pull out the whips and chains, Leatherface will snatch the chainsaw and the cycle will run…

Class of 1999 DVD Review

Review by Alex Dorn There are so many fantastic things about “Class of 1999” (1990) that it’s hard for me to know where to start. I’m gonna guess that this is it’s first time on DVD, and I recommend it wholeheartedly! The year, of course, is 1999, and all inner cities have become so violent that they have been abandoned by the police and are “free fire” zones completely run by street gangs. In the middle of these zones, are high schools, and for some amazing reason, all the gang members go to these schools during the day. Incredibly, these schools have discipline problems. What better solution than to hire robot teachers that will kill all the misbehaving students with extreme prejudice at the slightest provocation? Bradley Gregg stars as Cody Culp, an ex member of the gang “the Blackhearts” on parole and ready to go straight. He returns home
