Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) - News Poster

The Lost Boys Was Originally Supposed To Have an End Credits Scene

End credits scenes weren't really a big thing back in the 80s. The live-action adaptation of Masters of the Universe had one, Ferris Bueller's Day Off had One, and apparently, The Lost Boys almost had one too! According to the new book called Lost in the Shadows: The Story of The Lost Boys by Paul Davis, the original script from the film had a different ending that was cut and never filmed.

The ending of the film that we all know features Grandpa plowing through his house in his truck killing the head vampire, Max, with a giant spiked fence post that flew off the back of the truck at him. In case you forgot how that scene played out, you can watch it below. The film closed out with Grandpa saying, “One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach… all the damn vampires”, which was kind of a perfect ending.

Criterion Gets Nostalgic: The Breakfast Club to Warm Hearts in January 2018

When it was released in February 1985, The Breakfast Club was very much 'of the moment,' capturing the zeitgeist of suburban American youth during the teenage years. Coming off the modest success of his debut feature, Sixteen Candles, writer and director John Hughes was on a roll that hit a noxious bump with Weird Science and then soared again with Ferris Bueller's Day Off, before giving way to his masterpiece, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. In the three decades since its release, however, The Breakfast Club has become a monument to nostalgia, as individuals who readily identify with one (or more) of the gleefully mawkish, stereotypical characters adapt it as their own and fondly recall their younger days while their children mock them mercilessly, even as...

Fantastic Spider-man: Homecoming Alternate Posters Pay Homage To The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller, and Taxi Driver

Three amazing alternate posters have been released for Spider-Man: Homecoming and what makes them so great is the fact that they pay homage to three classic 80s films. Those films include The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Taxi Driver. I wish we would have seen more 80s tribute marketing like this before the movie opened! These are a lot better than most of the other posters that were released for the film, plus it adds an extra bit of fun flair to the marketing. Thanks to Nerdist for the heads up on these!

Kevin Feige Talks McU Success, Crossovers and Spider-Man Sequels | Exclusive

Kevin Feige Talks McU Success, Crossovers and Spider-Man Sequels | Exclusive
Kevin Feige is on top of the world. The Hollywood super producer and President of Marvel Studios has just achieved another smashing success. Spider-Man: Homecoming has been getting rave reviews from the initial press and industry screenings. The film's journey mirrors his own. Feige started working for Marvel the year the first Spider-Man script was delivered. Seventeen years later, he finally has the character front and center in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a joint venture between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures. Marvel made the film while Sony financed and retains the rights. The collaboration took place because of the efforts from Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, the former head of Sony Pictures. They settled their corporate differences and pushed all egos aside. Each company played to their strengths and the result is the best Spider-Man film yet.

We interviewed Kevin Feige last week at the Spider-Man: Homecoming press event in New York.

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Review: New Reboot of Marvel Webslinger Really Is Amazing

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Review: New Reboot of Marvel Webslinger Really Is Amazing
News Flash: Tom Holland is the best movie Spider-Man ever. He finds the kid inside the famous red onesie and brings out the kid in even the most hardened filmgoer. The last two Spidey epics had "Amazing" in the title, but let's face it – both films stirred more apathy than amazement. The only suspense came in wondering how long and hard a franchise could be milked. It may be a problem winning back the comic-book fans, but after that extended cameo in Captain America: Civil War and this new solo outing,

19 Reasons the New Spider-Man Movie Will Be Unlike Anything You've Seen Before

Like many other superhero movie fans out there, I suffer from a serious, life-altering condition known as Spider-Man Fatigue (Smf). I'm a fan of the early-2000s franchise starring Tobey Maguire, and I willingly sat through Andrew Garfield's take on Peter Parker in 2012 and 2014. But when I heard Marvel and Sony had combined forces to tell a new version of the young web-slinger's story for a third time, I audibly groaned. Another one? Seriously? Then, I saw Captain America: Civil War. This Spider-Man, played by 20-year-old British rising star Tom Holland, is only in the movie briefly but seems immediately lighter and funnier; he meshes perfectly with Tony Stark and the rest of the gang. Could it be? Could Marvel have finally found a way to stop my skeptical eyes from rolling at each mention of a new installment to his story? To figure out, once and for all,

'Ferris Bueller's Day Off': 5 Things You Didn't Know About Iconic Teen Film

'Ferris Bueller's Day Off': 5 Things You Didn't Know About Iconic Teen Film
Ferris Bueller's Day Off celebrated its 30th birthday last year, but the John Hughes' teen-comedy classic is forever a fan favorite. Enough so that Stranger Things star Joe Keery re-enacted iconic scenes from the film for a recent Domino's Pizza ad campaign.

To capitalize even more on that eternally cool teen mojo, the pizza chain has teamed up with Epix, the premium cable network owned by MGM, to offer up a free live stream of Ferris, Cameron and Sloane having the best day ever playing hooky from school and avoiding the bumbling Edward R.

Tom Holland Based His Spider-Man on Marty McFly

Tom Holland Based His Spider-Man on Marty McFly
Tom Holland revealed that the main inspiration for Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming is Back to the Future's Marty McFly. Spider-Man: Homecoming is definitely embracing the work of 80s icon John Hughes (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Uncle Buck). Hughes was a master of the 80's teen movies, and it seems like an interesting take on the Spider-Man franchise to mix it with decades old teen movies. Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts gave the young cast homework before production began on the upcoming movie, trying to get them into the same groove.

Holland did an interview with Yahoo Movies Facebook and revealed that Watts made the cast watch all kinds of videos and movies from the 1980s to prepare for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland explains.

"I think that was one of the things that Jon set out to do and its just a reflection on him, as a director, that's he's

Tom Holland Compares His Spider-Man to Marty McFly and Teases a Bigger Role in Avengers: Infinity War

Seeing Tom Holland's Spider-Man in action for the first time was probably one of the best parts of Captain America: Civil War and like many of you, Spider-Man: Homecoming is one of the films I'm looking most forward to this year. We also know that he'll play a part in Avengers: Infinity War, and according to Tom Holland, we might be seeing a lot more of him than we think.

In an interview with Yahoo Movies, Holland chatted about how much Spider-Man actually has to do in the new Avengers movie, and it seems like quite a bit.

"It's been crazy, man. It's been a really, really surreal experience. When I did Civil War, I only worked with Chris and Robert very briefly. Everyone else was sort of like, I was acting with a tennis ball or all this sort of stuff. I saw everyone, but I never got to work with them.

This Ferris Bueller's Day Off Poster Offers a Unique Perspective

If you've been following this site for a long time, you've probably seen me praise Ferris Bueller's Day Off multiple times over the years. It's one of my favorite movies, and I own two Ferris posters already. But this one from artist Andy Fairhurst presents the movie from a perspective I've never seen before: ground level. It's one of those things where if you haven't seen the movie, you wouldn't have any idea what this is, but those who have it committed to memory can easily fill in the rest of the image above the top of the frame. Cool stuff, Mr. Fairhurst.

This comes from the badass folks at Bottleneck Gallery, and you can pick one up for $45.00 right here.

A Signature Scene in Spider-man: Homecoming Was Inspired By Ferris Bueller's Day Off

We've heard time and time again that the classic 1980s teenage John Hughes films heavily inspired director Jon Watts' when developing Spider-Man: Homecoming. The first trailer that was released for the film wonderfully teased that tone, but we've now learned that there's an entire sequence in the film that was inspired by one of the scenes from Hughes' film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, which is one of my favorites!

In a recent interview posted by Cinemablend, co-producer Eric Carroll teased the scene, saying that it will be on of the signature sequences in the film:

"They go through this great Ferris Bueller-inspired chase through this neighborhood, where these guys from the Shocker, they got in one good clock. Spider-Man was not expecting that. So they get a jump on him, they tear off, and Spider-Man gives chase. It's a lot of fun. He's running through people's backyards, he's encountering friendly dogs,

Where Are the (Family-Friendly) Teen Movies? '80s Icon and Pretty in Pink Star Andrew McCarthy Weighs in

Where Are the (Family-Friendly) Teen Movies? '80s Icon and Pretty in Pink Star Andrew McCarthy Weighs in
When John Hughes passed away in 2009, he left a huge void, not only in people's hearts, but in Hollywood. He had written and directed most of the popular family-friendly teen films of the '80s, which became cult classics and still air on cable today—Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Uncle Buck, Home Alone...the list goes on and on. Many teen movies that he took no part in making, which are much racier and contain more complex plot lines, became popular in the last 20 years, notably American Pie, Mean Girls and Pitch Perfect. Nowadays, such films are rarely made and do not enjoy the same level of success. Can anyone...

Spider-Man: Homecoming - breaking down the new trailer

Mike Cecchini Mar 29, 2017

We unpacked Spider-Man: Homecoming's new trailer, and find lots of nerdy details...

Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives on July 7th. So far, Marvel and Sony have been careful about not revealing too much about the movie. We got our first trailer way back in December, and it's taken them until now to unveil new footage.

Before we get going, here's the new trailer, that was released yesterday. And then we're going to break it down...

Video of Spider-Man: Homecoming - Trailer 2

I don't go shot by shot in order. Instead I try and connect the dots in the trailer based on what I think is happening. I'm probably wrong, of course, but that's the way it goes.
