The Days Of Thunder vs Dick Tracy blockbuster rivalry

Simon Brew Dec 4, 2017

The summer of 1990 was supposed to be a showdown between Dick Tracy and Days Of Thunder. It was a bit of an odd rivalry...

It would be fair to say that the top five movies at the Us box office in 1990 didn’t follow the rule book. In fact, 1990 saw Hollywood’s blockbuster formula falter, to the point that conversations were rife about whether a sea change was coming. Dramtic changes in blockbuster mentality were certainly on the way, as it happened, but not for a decade or so. Yet the seed was planted in 1990 that sure-fire blockbuster hits weren’t always, well, sure-fire blockbuster hits.

Renee Zellweger to Play Judy Garland in New Biopic
Renee Zellweger has landed the role of a Hollywood icon. 

The 48-year-old actress will portray Judy Garland in the upcoming biopic Judy, Variety reports.

The movie will center around the Wizard of Oz star's final concerts in London that took place at the Talk of the Town nightclub in 1969 when she was 47 and was "exhausted, fragile, and wanting to be at home with her kids," according to the trade publication. Garland died that same year.

It's assumed that Zellweger will be singing for her role as Garland, which will be one of the first times she's performed since her 2002 portrayal of Roxy Hart in the musical movie Chicago.

Why Renee Zellweger Disappeared From Hollywood

Why Renee Zellweger Disappeared From Hollywood
It's been over 20 years since Renee Zellweger had us at "Hello," and so much has changed for the actress. Since her breakout role in Jerry Maguire she has solidified her spot on the A-list and her name has become more synonymous with rom-coms than Bridget Jones herself. But Zellweger has also had a somewhat complicated relationship with her own fame. The 2010s were a banner decade for the actress—she starred in Chicago, kicked off the Bridget Jones' Diary franchise, won an Oscar for Cold Mountain and was nominated for two others. But by the end of the decade she gave it all up. After starring in My Own Love Song opposite Forest Whitaker,...

Review: ‘The Foreigner’ Pits Jackie Chan Against James Bond In a Very Awkward Mash-Up

Review: ‘The Foreigner’ Pits Jackie Chan Against James Bond In a Very Awkward Mash-Up
The Foreigner” is a twisty political thriller about an deputy minister (Pierce Brosnan) who’s plotting to pardon some imprisoned Ira fighters without reigniting the Troubles. “The Foreigner” is also a revenge saga in which Jackie Chan plays a Vietnamese (?) explosives expert who’s obsessively determined to identify and eliminate the bombers who blew up his teenage daughter. Believe it or not, those two narratives don’t really complement one another all that well. It turns out there might be a good reason why no one’s ever watched “In the Name of the Father” and thought to themselves: “You know what that movie was missing? Jackie Chan.”

On paper, it almost makes sense why someone would try to sandwich these very different storylines together — immigrants, so often assumed to be the perpetrators of domestic terrorism, are often the most overlooked of its casualties. And it’s possible this mash-up

10 Future A-List Actors Who Made Horror Movies

10 Future A-List Actors Who Made Horror Movies
We all have to start somewhere, right? Despite its history of cinema classics and major box office success, the horror genre is often maligned as somehow less worthy of respect than other types of films. For whatever reason, it's not as easy to get an A-list actor to headline a horror movie as it should be. But beggars can't be choosers. Plenty of Oscar-nomintaed thespians had no problem making horror flicks on the way up. Today, we're looking at 10 future A-List actors who made horror movies before they became big time celebrities.

Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger

There may be no greater example of the phenomenon we're talking about here than the fourth film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, which starred two future A-list actors and is demonstrative of the shrewd and cynical strategies of Hollywood. In 1994, relative unknowns Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger had already been in Dazed and Confused

Tom Cruise’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey

Tom Cruise’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Last weekend saw the release of the latest Tom Cruise vehicle, “American Made,” and critics are raving that it’s better than “The Mummy!” In honor of this great achievement, we ask: What is Tom Cruise’s greatest performance?

The greatest Tom Cruise performance of all time happened on Oprah’s couch in 2005. But in the movies? “Magnolia.” It’s the best, but it’s also the “most” Cruise performance. His batshit insanity just barely holds together the fragile insecurity of the man beneath the horndog motivation speaker.

“American Made” puts Tom Cruise back into the world of biopics

Every decade or two, Tom Cruise seems to be compelled to take part in a biopic. Back in the late 80’s, it was his Academy Award nominated turn in Born on the Fourth of July. About 20 years later, it was Valkyrie. Now, this week sees him back playing a real person with American Made, a look at Barry Seal, a pilot who nearly ended up bringing down the Reagan Administration with his drug running. It’s still close to action hero territory at times for Cruise, but compared to many of his recent outings, this is downright a prestige picture. He’s a great movie star, endlessly compelling in action flicks, but serious films always contain his best performances. The movie is a biopic, albeit an unconventional one. Barry Seal (Cruise) is an unhappy Twa pilot who ends up recruited by the CIA during the 1980’s. Monty ‘Schafer’ (Domhnall Gleeson) sees something in Barry,

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Tackles Pro Football Films

Chicago – It’s the opening Sunday of the NFL, and what better time to celebrate the films that celebrate the sport that celebrate the ballers. Film history has a steroid-free stack of pro football films in all categories. Patrick McDonald, Jon Lennon Espino and Spike Walters of HollywoodChicago.com take on three prime examples.

The earliest known footage of a football game was a 1903 match-up between powerhouses Princeton and Yale, filmed by Thomas Edison. The earliest narrative films dealt with the college game, from Harold Lloyd’s “The Freshman” (1925) to the Marx Brothers in “Horse Feathers” (1932). An early example of a pro football movie is “The Cowboy Quarterback” (1939), which involves a scout for the “Chicago Packers” (gee, even in olden days screenwriters were lazy as shit).

Kardashians Come to Houston's Rescue

Kim Kardashian and her family donated a hefty sum of money to charities that are helping out with flood relief in Houston. That much is cool. She also tweeted about her donation, including its specific dollar amount, which might not be so cool.

Via Bustle.

Hurricane Harvey has been devastating the Gulf Coast of Texas since Friday night, causing extreme damage to the city of Houston, which has been afflicted by over 30 inches of rain and ruinous flooding. The intense winds and drastic downpours have left many Hurricane Harvey victims displaced as parts of Southern Texas are left uninhabitable due to the flood. Perhaps the only positive outcome from this natural disaster is the way that people have been generously donating to help Houston's relief efforts. Several celebrities have been posting on social media about donations, including the Kardashians,

Labor Day Weekend on Target for Worst Box Office in Over a Decade

Labor Day Weekend on Target for Worst Box Office in Over a Decade
With the Houston flood, impending race riots and a looming nuclear war all on the horizon, folks aren't really thinking about movies. And this weekend will prove that as it shapes up to be the worst Labor Day at the box office since 2001. Last weekend was a historic one at the box office, but not exactly in a good way. The action-comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard managed to repeat with just $10.2 million, as a trio of underperforming new releases fell way short, resulting in the worst overall weekend for the top 12 movies in 16 years, and the lowest August weekend in 20 years. It's entirely possible that record for box office futility could already be broken over the Labor Day holiday, a weekend that is traditionally one of the lowest of the year, but with only two movies debuting, The Weinstein Compan's Tulip Fever and Sony's re-release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind,

American Made review

Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman reteam for American Made. Here's our review of a great crime drama...

There are certain things you can generally count on in a Tom Cruise movie: running really fast, smiling winningly at ladies and hurtling around in fast cars, or on motorbikes, or in planes. Also, he’ll be topless at least once.

See related Marc Webb interview: The Amazing Spider-Man, villains, casting, sequels and more

Cruise’s second collaboration with director Doug Liman (they previously brought us the unexpectedly great sci-fi action film, Edge Of Tomorrow), American Made requires quite a bit more from the Hollywood stars than just winning smiles and stunts - though the movie does deliver plenty of those too. Cruise plays Barry Seal, a former Twa commercial pilot who, at the behest of an enigmatic guy with a beard who calls himself Schafer (Domhnall Gleeson) winds up flying planes for the CIA.
