'Alien' Turned Into Stage Production by New Jersey High School

'Alien' Turned Into Stage Production by New Jersey High School
A high school drama club in North Bergen, New Jersey put on a production of Alien last week — and social media users are amazed at how good it turned out.

Photos and video from the North Bergen High School Drama Club production of the 1979 horror/sci-fi classic spread like wildfire over the weekend.

The sets and costumes are incredibly detailed and appear to be almost exact replicas of those from the Ridley Scott film that spawned a massive franchise.

One of the videos posted to social media showed the climax of the play/film when Ellen Ripley (played ...

Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Expected To Drop Monday

Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Expected To Drop Monday
A couple of days ago, Tom Holland took to Twitter to share two ominous words: “Monday morning…” And while fans were quick to jump to the conclusion that another Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer might be on the way, there was still some room for doubt, not least because the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is only one of three films that the actor is confirmed to feature in this year.

Thanks to the official Spider-Man Films Weibo account, however, it’s now looking all but confirmed that Holland was teasing some Far From Home material. Earlier today, Twitter user Gavin Feng posted a screenshot of the Sony-run Chinese account sharing Holland’s post while adding their own vague tease that something big is imminent.

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ on Pace for $67 Million Opening, Double ‘Get Out’ Debut

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ on Pace for $67 Million Opening, Double ‘Get Out’ Debut
Universal/Monkeypaw’s “Us” is blowing by all analysts’ expectations this weekend. On the back of strong pre-release buzz and an opening day total of $29 million, Jordan Peele’s second film is estimated to gross $67 million from 3,741 screens this weekend.

If that estimate holds, not only will “Us” have doubled the opening weekend of Peele’s debut film “Get Out” ($33.3 million), it will set a new opening weekend record for original horror films, beating the $50.2 million of last year’s “A Quiet Place.” It’s also a new openiing record for any original film released in March.

The one somewhat bad note for “Us” is that while critics have been raving about the film with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 95 percent, audiences aren’t quite as enthused as they were for “Get Out.

‘Rocketman’ Will Be Rated R for Sex, Drugs, and Presumably Rock ‘n’ Roll

‘Rocketman’ Will Be Rated R for Sex, Drugs, and Presumably Rock ‘n’ Roll
Not only is Taron Egerton providing his own voice to the fantasy-influenced Elton John biopic Rocketman, but the Kingsman star is also giving the world the valuable gift of an on-screen Elton who definitively, demonstrably fucks. THR reports the film landed an R-rating for sex scenes and drug use. Much scuttlebutt has been made about a reported love scene between Egerton's Elton John and Richard Madden's John Reid, a former music manager. The Daily Mail reported that director …

Norman Reedus on ‘The Walking Dead’ Without Andrew Lincoln: ‘He’s With Me Every Day’

Norman Reedus on ‘The Walking Dead’ Without Andrew Lincoln: ‘He’s With Me Every Day’
After saying goodbye to most of the original cast on “The Walking Dead,” Norman Reedus still feels his former co-stars with him during each episode.

“I’ve seen so many people come and go,” he said during a “Walking Dead” panel on Friday at PaleyFest. “Right now on the show, the ghosts of all those guys are with me through every frickin’ scene. I remember how tight Andy [Lincoln] and I are, how tight Scott [Wilson] and I were and Jon [Bernthal], too.”

Lincoln, who played main character Rick Grimes from the beginning of the hit AMC zombie series, departed halfway through the

‘Shazam!’ Film Review: DC Comics Gets a Bouncy Burst of Big-Screen Ebullience

‘Shazam!’ Film Review: DC Comics Gets a Bouncy Burst of Big-Screen Ebullience
If the “Wonder Woman” and “Aquaman” movies represented DC Comics’ first big-screen steps away from the austere color palette of the Zach Snyder movies, “Shazam!” takes us deeply into primary colors in a single bound. There’s still a touch of urban decay and kitchen-table warmth on display — this is by no means Warren Beatty’s “Dick Tracy” or a candy-colored Cartoon Network production — but this new DC entry has a lovely lightness, both in the visuals and in its tone.

Before the 1940s serials and the 1970s Saturday-morning TV show, “Shazam!” was born in a magazine called Whiz Comics, published by Fawcett and later acquired by the company that would be known as DC Comics. And to use a 1940s expression, there’s a gee-whiz ebullience to the movie that makes it stand out among the last several decades’ worth of caped crusaders.

Kaley Cuoco Just Has 1 Tiny Request for "The Big Bang Theory"'s Series Finale

Kaley Cuoco Just Has 1 Tiny Request for
While it pains me to say this, there are only a few more episodes left until we have to say goodbye to The Big Bang Theory forever. After 12 successful seasons, the CBS sitcom - which is one of the longest-running staples of network TV, by the way - is coming to an end on May 16. I recently got to chat with Kaley Cuoco about what fans can expect from the series finale, and to say I was ecstatic is an understatement. Not only have I been following the gang since Leonard (Johnny Galecki) first laid eyes on Penny (Cuoco) in the hall of their apartment building, but I also feel like I know the cast better than I know my own friends. I've even grown to love Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and caught myself singing "Soft Kitty" to my boyfriend on multiple occasions (don't ask).

Film Review: ‘The Dirt’

Film Review: ‘The Dirt’
A long time ago, the words sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll carried a hint of danger. The lifestyle did, too, but I’m talking about the phrase. It used to sound cool (back around the time the word “cool” sounded cool). But sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll has long since passed into the realm of vintage American catch-phrase banality, like “How’s that workin’ out for you?” And “The Dirt,” the new Netflix rock biopic about the sordid, squalid saga of Mötley Crüe, the royal hair-metal sleaze gods of the ’80s and ’90s, is a movie that reflects the new harmless status of that phrase.

The Dirt” boils over with sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll, whether it’s Vince Neil (Daniel Webber), the snaky leader singer of Mötley Crüe, acting like a horny jackrabbit as he enjoys a backstage boink with every woman who comes near him,

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Breaks Original Horror Film Record With $70 Million Opening

  • The Wrap
Universal/Monkeypaw’s “Us” has set a new opening weekend record for original horror films, earning a $70.2 million launch from 3,741 screens. This total blows by the original horror movie opening record of $50.2 million set by “A Quiet Place” last year.

“Us” has also more than doubled the opening weekend earned by director Jordan Peele’s previous film, “Get Out,” which opened to $33.3 million in February 2017. When ranked among all horror films, including franchise titles and remakes, “Us” sits third on the genre’s opening weekend charts, sitting behind the $123 million opening for 2017’s “It” remake and the $76 million opening for last year’s “Halloween.”

Peele’s follow-up was able to successfully ride the critical acclaim from its SXSW premiere two weeks ago and its 94 percent Rotten Tomatoes score to one of the biggest openings for any horror film, adding $16.7 million from 47 overseas markets to earn an $86.9 million worldwide launch against a $20 million budget.

Box Office: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Stuns With $70 Million Opening Weekend

Box Office: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Stuns With $70 Million Opening Weekend
Talk about scary good.

“Us,” the second directorial effort from Jordan Peele, pulled off a stunning debut, generating $70 million from 3,741 North American locations. That haul is enough to land it the second-best opening weekend of the year behind just Disney’s “Captain Marvel” ($153 million). The psychological thriller about a family confronted by a band of doppelgangers nearly doubled projections, which estimated a three-day total in the $38 million to $45 million range.

“Us” now has the largest weekend for original horror movie, surpassing “A Quiet Place,” as well as the biggest launch for an original R-rated film behind “Ted.” It also shattered the benchmark set by Peele’s directorial debut “Get Out,” which launched with $33 million in 2017.

Overseas, “Us” launched with $16.7 million from 47 international territories for a global start of $86.95 million.

Universal and Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions produced “Us” for $20 million. Since its debut at the South by Southwest Film Festival, “Us

Series Mania: Freddie Highmore Talks ‘The Good Doctor,’ Arsenal, Norman Bates
Lille, France — God, Freddie Highmore’s good at crying. There’s a scene in “Neverland,” screened at his Series Mania masterclass, where he’s acting opposite Johnny Depp. His mother has just died. Highmore sits on a park bench, clutching a notebook, which she helped as tears well in his eyes, and he tries to keep in everything but can’t.

It’s a richly calibrated performance, shame, confusion, deep sorrow all jostling in there, and Depp wisely containing his to give Highmore stage center – despite the fact that he cannot have been much more than 10 when he played the scene.

Song You Need to Know: Tame Impala, ‘Patience’

The pianos and strings that open Tame Impala’s wonderful new song evoke classic house music at its most radiant and redemptive. But as is almost always the case with Australian psych-pop song sculptor Kevin Parker, “Patience” is immediately revealed to be more complicated than that first heraldic rush of music might imply. The drums drift, and the melody that emerges is as smeared as it is sunny, as if you’re hearing the song coming from two tents away at a festival, or from an amazing party just over the horizon.

Jordan Peele did just that with Us, which debuted over the weekend to a terrifying $70.3 million at the North American box office to scare up the third biggest horror opening ever behind It ($123.4 million) and last year's Halloween sequel ($76.2 million), among other milestones.

Overseas, Us took in $16.7 million from its first 47 markets for a global bow of $87 million — more than four times the film's $20 million production budget (that doesn't include marketing)....
