Bubbles the Chimp, Michael Jackson's Former Pet, Is Star Artist in 'Apes that Paint' Miami Art Exhibit and Fundraiser
This headline is not fake news. We repeat, there’s no monkey business here: Bubbles the Chimp, former pet of Michael Jackson the King of Pop, really is the star of a new art exhibition opening in Miami on July 21.

One of his customers at the gallery is a volunteer at the Center for Great Apes, a permanent sanctuary for rescued and retired chimps and orangutans that come from the entertainment industry, research labs and the exotic pet trade,

Why Sidney Poitier’s ‘Stir Crazy’ Is Still the Most Successful Movie Ever Made By a Black Director

Why Sidney Poitier’s ‘Stir Crazy’ Is Still the Most Successful Movie Ever Made By a Black Director
In the history of black filmmaking, “Stir Crazy” is rarely cited as a groundbreaker or an enduring high point. However, Sidney Poitier’s 1980 comedy sold more tickets in North America than “The Fate of the Furious,” or any other film by a black director.

Poitier’s career has included multiple breakout moments. He was the first black lead acting Oscar winner with “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner;” he starred in two blockbuster films in 1967 with “To Sir With Love” (over $300 million, adjusted gross) and “In the Heat of the Night” ($177 million, adjusted gross). He was, more than even Denzel Washington or any other black actor-turned-director, an icon of cinema when he made “Stir Crazy.” And it was this film, more than any other, that found access to all domestic audiences.

That said, it’s a film that doesn’t have the resonance of other historical blockbusters like “Gone With the Wind,

Famous Primates in Film: A Brief History

  • Cinelinx
Later this month, the mighty Kong returns to the big screen! To celebrate, we’re looking back at all the major primate appearances in film.

For as long as films were being made, humans have starred alongside primates. Unlike other animals, their human-like qualities can lend a sense of comedy or horror. Throughout the history of film, primates have been used to fulfill certain roles. In the early days, they were often a form of antagonist, carrying out dastardly deeds or causing mayhem. More common is the primate cast in a role of mischief, causing all sorts of comedic hijincks. While most primate roles were portrayed by live animals, it was not uncommon for men to dress up in ape suits for roles where the primates needed to carry out specific actions. Later, the advent of CGI has led to men mimicking primates in real time to create a motion-capture performance.

The Clint Eastwood Classic 'Every Which Way but Loose' Is Getting a Remake

  • Fandango
Tell someone that Every Which Way but Loose is getting remade and they may give you a bit of an "Er, what movie is that again?" face. It is an odd, easily confused title for a movie, after all. It's not as distinct as, say, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Tell someone that they're remaking the movie where Clint Eastwood has a pet orangutan, though, and they'll know exactly what you're talking about. You can't really confuse that combination with any other movie...

A Remake of Clint Eastwood's Every Which Way But Loose Is Coming

Have you ever seen Every Which Way But Loose? The 1978 comedy starred Clint Eastwood at the top of his game, and fell right in the middle of a stint of badass roles as Man With No Name and Dirty Harry. Eastwood plays a truck driver who participates in bareknuckle boxing on the side to bring in some extra cash, and he's best friends with an orangutan named Clyde. Not only is this a 100% real film, but — you guessed it — Hollywood is remaking it.

According to Deadline, original director James Fargo is producing the remake and hand-picked its director, an up-and-coming filmmaker named Anthony G. Cohen who directed a little-seen movie called The Sex Trip. Filming starts this spring, but there's no word about casting yet. At this point, I'm no longer surprised with remake news. When Hollywood is remaking a movie about a guy and his orangutan fighting their way across the country,

It looks like we can add 1978’s Every Which Way But Loose to the ever-growing list of remakes, with Deadline reporting that Anthony G. Cohen (The Sex Trip) has signed on to direct a new take on the Clint Eastwood comedy.

“I have been interviewing directors for over a year and as soon as I watched Cohen’s film The Sex Trip … I knew instantly he was the right director for this picture,” said James Fargo, who directed the original movie, and is producing the remake. “I was very impressed with his film and his directing style.”

Every Which Way But Loose follows the exploits of a truck driver and bare-knuckle fighter and his pet orangutan Clyde as they travel the American West in search of a lost love. The original film was a huge hit at the box office, leading to the 1980 sequel Any Which Way You Can.

Every Which Way But Loose remake on the way

Every Which Way But Loose remake: The original film’s director James Fargo is producing, and The Sex Trip’s Anthony G. Cohen is set to direct.

An Every Which Way But Loose remake is on the way from director Anthony G. Cohen and producer James Fargo. The planned motion picture will be a redo of the very successful 1970s movie which starred Clint Eastwood and an orangutan named Clyde.

The film saw Eastwood play the character of Philo Beddoe, a trucker travelling across the American west in search of his lost love. Jeffrey Lewis was also in the movie as Orville, Beddoe’s friend, who just so had a pet orangutan named Clyde. It banked an impressive haul from a budget of only $5 million.

Every Which Way But Loose bagged an impressive $95 million in box-office revenues back in 1978 and spawned a sequel, naturally, Every Which Way You Can two years later.

Every Which Way But Loose getting a remake

The director of The Sex Trip is to helm a remake of the Clint Eastwood comedy, Every Which Way But Loose...

Most of the reporting we do on remakes tends to centre on Hollywood’s current obsession with films from the 1980s and 1990s. Appreciating that remakes tend to make people groan a little just at the mention of them, at least this one dates back to a film nearly 40 years old.

It’s the Clint Eastwood-headlined comedy Every Which Way But Loose, which in turn was followed by a follow-up, Any Which Way You Can. It’s the one where Eastwood plays a truck driver with a pet orangutan, and the new take on the movie is set to go into production this spring.

The director of the original film, James Fargo, is producing this time. And in the director’s chair will step Anthony G Cohen,

Every Which Way But Loose Remake Is Happening

Newswire: Every Which Way But Loose is getting a remake

According to Deadline, a remake of the hit 1978 Clint Eastwood comedy Every Which Way But Loose is in the works, finally answering the prayers of America’s many orangutan actors. Original director James Fargo is on board as a producer, which means this should be reasonably faithful to the Which Way But Loose series’ canon (and may even include some elements from the Which Way But Loose expanded universe that we assume exists).

The remake will be directed by Anthony Cohen, who wrote, produced, and directed The Sex Trip, a 2015 comedy that Fargo was “very impressed” by according to a statement given to Deadline. No casting details for the Every Which Way But Loose remake have been announced, but seeing as how Scott Eastwood has been desperate for a breakout role that might convince people he’s as cool as his dad, maybe he should get in the ...

Juliette Lewis Has Classy Reaction to Oscars 'In Memoriam' Forgetting Her Father

Every year the Oscars "In Memoriam" tribute leaves out one or two big names who died in the previous year. The Internet noticed that "Godfather" star Abe Vigoda was missing from the 2016 telecast; he just died in late January 2016, but the show managed to include Alan Rickman and David Bowie, who also just died in January. In terms of actors who died in 2015, there was no mention of Geoffrey Lewis, who had hundreds of screen credits, including roles in many Clint Eastwood movies.

Lewis died on April 7, 2015, and -- at the time -- his daughter, actress Juliette Lewis, shared a touching tribute to her dad. So you could understand if she was upset that the Oscars didn't include her father in the tribute. But she kept things classy and positive in a series of tweets and retweets:

I know @TheAcademy didn't mean to overlook my dad #GeoffreyLewis in the memorium.

Blu-ray Review – Cannonball Run II (1984)

Cannonball Run II, 1984.

Directed by Hal Needham.

Starring Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Jamie Farr, Telly Savalas, Ricardo Montalban, Shirley MacLaine, Richard Kiel, Sid Caesar, Jackie Chan, Tony Danza, Henry Silva, Alex Rocco, Abe Vigoda, Michael V. Gazzo.

Synopsis:

The majority of the drivers from the first film return for a second crack at the top prize in an illegal cross-country car race.

Having had a hit with The Cannonball Run in 1981, it took three years for the inevitable to happen and a sequel to appear and, much like that first film, Cannonball Run II also became a staple of bank holiday television entertainment in the UK. However, in keeping with the tradition of inferior major studio sequels this second outing basically redoes the original but without the charm that carried that film.

Much of that missing charm comes down to the fact that

Dirty Harry’s Dregs, or a Franchise Learns Its Limitations

Clint Eastwood revisited Harry Callahan three more times, usually whenever his career was in the dumps. If Dirty Harry was a cultural phenomenon and Magnum Force a respectable follow-up, the rest are uninspired cash-ins. The main law Harry enforces in these sequels is the Law of Diminishing Returns.

Given Dirty Harry‘s San Francisco setting, something like The Enforcer (1976) was inevitable. After all, San Fran hosted Haight-Ashbury, hippie capital of the world; was a favored site for Black Panther and Sds protests; headquarters of the nascent gay rights movement; victim of Weathermen bombings and the racially-charged Zebra murders. Writers Gail Morgan Hickman and S.W. Schurr based their script, originally titled “Moving Target,” on the Symbionese Liberation Army which kidnapped Patty Hearst. Dean Riesner (who cowrote the original Harry) and Stirling Silliphant (In the Heat of the Night) polished the film.
