Hope You're Ready For More 'Police Academy,' Because Steve Guttenberg Is

One of the most successful comedy franchises of the 1980s-90s — Police Academy — is, according to actor Steve Guttenberg, ready to make a comeback. Launched in 1984, the original was an admittedly dopey series of films that spanned 10 years and seven adventures. The premise was a simple one: a newly-elected mayor passes a law that the police department must accept all willing recruits. The result? The motliest group of cops you've ever seen, one more dysfunctional than the next. The only true voice of sanity there was Steve's Cary Mahoney, who, over the course of the series, found himself promoted from cadet to officer and, finally, sergeant. Well, according to a recent Twitter posting, we've got a new entry coming. When fan Adam Hirschovitz wrote to him, "Please tell me you're making a new Police Academy film," Steve tweeted back, "Adam, the next Police Academy is coming, no details yet, but

Best 4th Movies in Franchises Ranked, From ‘Jaws IV’ to ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ (Photos)
Not many film franchises get the distinction of hitting number four. It’s even more impressive when they’re actually good. This 4th of July, we’re counting down from worst to best some of the most notable “number four” in their respective franchises.

“Jaws IV: The Revenge”

“I have never seen it (Jaws 4) but by all accounts it is terrible,” star Michael Caine said about the movie. “However, I have seen the house that it built and it is terrific.”

X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (2009)

Thank the heavens that “Logan” and “Deadpool” happened.

Batman & Robin” (1997)

Isn’t this an ice list?

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes” (1972)

Fans of the “Planet of the Apes” prequels might be interested to see Caesar’s original origins, although the new films do the character more justice.

Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol” (1987)

Did you know the Razzies had a “Worst Original Song” category?

Steve Guttenberg Responds to Bill Clinton's Love for Police Academy

Steve Guttenberg Responds to Bill Clinton's Love for Police Academy
Over the past two weeks, the Republican and Democratic parties have held their national conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia, where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were officially named as each party's candidate for President. On Tuesday night, Hillary's husband and former President Bill Clinton gave his speech at the convention, where he mentioned that during a particularly troubling time in his Presidency, the Monica Lewinsky scandal, he took a few days off with his daughter Chelsea Clinton, where they watched all six Police Academy movies. While this admission came as quite a surprise to most political pundits, Police Academy star Steve Guttenberg said he had heard the story before. Here's part of Bill Clinton's Tuesday night speech where he mentions Police Academy.

"Truth is, we rarely disagreed on parenting, although she did believe that I had gone a little over the top when I took a couple of

From The Phantom Menace to Masters of the Universe: 10 great posters for terrible films

From The Phantom Menace to Masters of the Universe: 10 great posters for terrible films
Movie posters are there to sell the movie. But some of them sell the movie too well, making you think a bad film will be a really, really good one.

To celebrate those rare moments when the publicity succeeds where the movie doesn't, here are just ten examples of great posters for terrible films.

1. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)

Rotten Tomatoes rating: 57%

The teaser poster for the second coming of Star Wars was screaming-in-the-street exciting when it first hit bus stop billboards. Intriguingly, there's no mention of hyper-annoying sidekicks or intergalactic tax systems anywhere on it. Hmm.

2. Cobra (1986)

Rotten Tomatoes rating: 13%

So masculine it made men pregnant, the poster for action disasterpiece Cobra drips with virility. Alas, the film dripped with so much blood that the first cut earned an X rating, forcing reshoots that made an already preposterous plot crumple like a crisp packet in Sly's massive manly fists.

The Walking Dead Season 3 Finale Review

The third season of The Walking Dead ended in much more somber way than last season. It was a much more reflective episode, on the mistakes made along the way by Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Andrea (Laurie Holden) and the Governor (David Morrissey). Tyreese (Chad Coleman) waited it all out and ended up safe in the end and for those expecting a fight to the finish– well, feel comfort knowing that the Governor and Carl (Chandler Riggs) agree with you.

Governor: In this life, you kill or you die… Or you die and you kill.

Like he has all season, the Governor got the ball rolling in “Welcome to the Tombs.” First, he delivered Milton (Dallas Roberts) at the welcome mat of death and opened the door to Zombieland, knowing he’ll eventually go after Andrea. The other was assembling an unexperienced army to storm the prison and kill as many

'21 Jump Street': 25 Questions

Back in 1987, you could watch "21 Jump Street," with newcomer Johnny Depp, on your local over-the-air Fox affiliate for free. Today, there is a movie in theaters called "21 Jump Street," this time with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in starring roles, and you'll have to spend money to enjoy it. As a service to you and your wallet, we answer every question that you could possibly have about the cinematic version of 21 Jump Street. Q: Is 21 Jump Street anything like the Fox television show? A: 21 Jump Street has very little to do with the television show. Though, technically, it can be considered a continuation of that series because the film takes place in the current day and the characters from the original show are not rebooted. Q: So the movie version of 21 Jump Street is considered canon. A: According to Jonah Hill, yes. Q: What about this website of 21 Jump Street

Hollywood’s Horrible 4s

Success breeds more success and that’s entirely true in Hollywood. A movie that makes money at the box office, will surely get a sequel. About fifteen years ago, the stigma in Hollywood was that they couldn’t make a good sequel. That has elapsed, thankfully, but the new stigma is that all part fours suck. With so many franchises looking to continue that bank roll, and in this economy, anything with name recognition is golden, that stigma might be more than just theory amongst us. It seems like it’s hitting Hollywood’s attention.

[On Jaws: The Revenge] is not simply a bad movie, but also a stupid and incompetent one – a ripoff. – Roger Ebert (here)

But let’s back track, and let’s see these dubious horrible fours. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Batman and Robin. Jaws: The Revenge. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. Rocky IV. Alien Resurrection.

Actors and directors who left a movie franchise early

As Megan Fox ducks out of Transformers 3, what happened when other movie franchises and their personnel parted company?

With Megan Fox's departure from Transformers 3 currently making the news, we look at other actors and directors who have, for one reason or another, left a movie franchise. What happened next, for the franchise and for the person concerned?

Megan FoxTransformers 3

Who?

A regular fixture in men's magazine listings of desirable women, 2007's Transformers gave Megan Fox her first lead role after several years of small television roles.

Why?

Fox's recent comments in Wonderland magazine can't have done her any favours. "He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation," Fox said. "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is."

While Fox has since claimed that she left the Transformers 3 production voluntarily, it's still widely thought that

Police Academy 8?

Just when you thought the movie world had lost its ability to surprise, it pulls out the possibility of a Police Academy 8.

A potential eighth instalment of the zany police comedy was confirmed by its star, Steve Guttenberg, who wants to reprise his role as lovable rogue Carey Mahoney.

“We are doing a new movie and it is going to be great fun,” Guttenberg said. “A script is being written and so far it is really great, everyone from the original movies who is still around will return.”

“I know Kim (Cattrall, who starred in the original movie) and Sharon (Stone, who starred in Police Academy 4: Citizens On Patrol) have been asked but they haven’t said yes yet. It would be really great to have them on board.”

But why would they want to get on board???

Cattrall And Stone Wanted For New Police Academy

  • WENN
Cattrall And Stone Wanted For New Police Academy
Actresses Kim Cattrall and Sharon Stone are being sought to return to the U.S. police force for a new Police Academy film.

Sex and the City star Cattrall appeared alongside Steve Guttenberg in the original 1984 comedy, while Stone featured in Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol in 1987.

And Guttenberg is hoping to bring both stars back for another movie in the film's franchise - more than a decade after the seventh installment, 1994's Police Academy: Mission to Moscow, was released.

He says, "We are doing a new movie and it is going to be great fun. A script is being written and so far it is really great, everyone from the original movies who is still around will return.

"I know Kim and Sharon have been asked but they haven't said yes yet. It would be really great to have them onboard."
