Yes, It's Been 20 Years Since These Movies Came Out

Come with us on a journey to the late '90s, when the boy bands were rockin' the radios, Sex and the City was ruling the TV, and a wide variety of movies were topping the box office lists. Perhaps you were into the teen offerings, like Can't Hardly Wait and Urban Legend. Or maybe you were sucked into the period dramas of Shakespeare in Love and Elizabeth. Maybe you discovered that Robert Redford was still a babe in The Horse Whisperer. Whatever your poison, everybody's 1998 faves are represented here.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Talks Fandom, Sequels and John Hughes | Exclusive

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Talks Fandom, Sequels and John Hughes | Exclusive
Jon Watts is on the verge of becoming Hollywood's hottest director. His work on Spider-Man: Homecoming is absolutely brilliant. He's not only made the best Spider-Man movie to date, but a truly exceptional coming of age story. I liken it to a John Hughes inspired superhero. Imagine Sixteen Candles or Breakfast Club with ass-kicking Spider-Man action. It's a fantastic take on the web slinger that captures the character of Peter Parker/Spider-Man at the nascent stage.

Jon Watts is a Colorado native that studied film at New York University. He had success directing commercials and a series of clever shorts. His big break was the low budget, indie thriller Cop Car. The leap from that film to Spider-Man: Homecoming is extraordinary. Watts won the directing job by blowing away the Marvel executives and Kevin Feige with his Spider-Man presentation. He had a clear, concise vision for the story that was apparently very impressive.

We're only at the year's halfway mark, but July is quickly shaping up to be the best moviegoing month of 2017: There are blockbusters lighthearted (Spidey's back yet again, and Sony swears they've cracked the formula this time) and solemn (Chris Nolan goes to war with Harry Styles in tow).

Interview: Writer / Director Sean Byrne on Facing His Fears with The Devil’S Candy

Out in limited theaters and on VOD this Friday from IFC Midnight is The Devil’s Candy, which was written and directed by Sean Byrne (the creative force behind the equally fantastic thriller The Loved Ones). The film stars Ethan Embry as an embattled father who will stop at nothing to keep his family—and particularly his daughter, Zooey (Kiara Glasco)—safe from devilish forces in the form of a possessed man named Ray (portrayed by the always engaging Pruitt Taylor Vince).

Daily Dead recently had the chance to speak with Byrne about how his latest film became a way to explore his own fears and insecurities—both personally and professionally—and how he enjoys trying to subvert horror fans' expectations whenever he takes the directorial reins. Byrne also discussed his thoughts on celebrating heavy metal culture for The Devil’s Candy, collaborating with his cast, and more.

SXSW 2017 Interview: Tyler MacIntyre, Jack Quaid & Craig Robinson Talk Tragedy Girls

One of my favorite Midnighters from this year’s SXSW Film Festival lineup is co-writer/director Tyler MacIntyre’s Tragedy Girls, a horror comedy/slasher send-up that filled my genre-loving soul with thousands of heart emojis. The story follows two girls from a small town (Deadpool’s Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp from X-Men Apocalypse and Straight Outta Compton), who are so obsessed with serial killers that they’ve created their own online show called Tragedy Girls. When their community is rocked by a series of brutal murders, the girls seize the opportunity to make a name for themselves.

At SXSW, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with MacIntyre, as well as Tragedy Girls co-stars Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games) and Craig Robinson (who also co-produced the project), and the trio discussed their experiences working together on the film, finding the balance of horror and humor, and more.

If you missed it on the festival circuit, Sean Byrne's The Devil's Candy, starring Ethan Embry (Cheap Thrills, Fashionista, Can't Hardly Wait), Pruitt Taylor Vince (Heavy, Monster), Kiara Glasco (Maps To The Stars, Bitten) and Shiri Appleby (Unreal, Roswell) is coming to a theater or TV near you this Friday. You can see the film in select theaters and on VOD and digital platforms on March 17th from IFC Midnight.   Byrne, who previously directed the fan favorite cult horror film The Loved Ones, is back with another fantastic piece of filmmaking. Far from your typical home invasion flick, The Devil's Candy makes you care deeply about its characters. They're not your typical family, for starters. They love heavy metal and weird art, and the family's dad Jesse (Ethan Embry) is a full-time...

Trailer for Ethan Embry's The Devil's Candy Looks Like a Hellishly Good Horror Film

I enjoy a good horror flick, and this one definitely looks like it'll be worth checking out! I've been hearing great things about it from people who have already seen it, so I was pretty excited to finally see a trailer. It looks like a great horror film that lives up to the hype. The movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and it currently boasts a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film stars Ethan Embry (Can't Hardly Wait, Empire Records) as "a struggling artist and metalhead who moves with his wife (Shiri Appleby) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) to a new house with a grisly history in rural Texas. Things begin to unravel for the family with the appearance of Ray (Pruitt Taylor Vince), a previous occupant of the abode and all-around disturbed-seeming personage."

As you'll see in the trailer, the film has a heart-pounding intensity that I dig. The

The clip, which premiered exclusively on Yahoo! Tuesday, features Kylie and Tyga at what appears to be a house party.

A Nice Weekend Goes Awry in The Intervention Trailer

You may not recognize Clea DuVall's name, but you've seen her in movies like Can't Hardly Wait, She's All That, The Grudge, Zodiac, Argo, and many more over the past twenty years. Now the actress is making her directorial debut with The Intervention, an ensemble comedy in which she stars alongside Melanie Lynskey, Cobie Smulders, Ben Schwartz, Alia Shawkat, Natasha Lyonne, Vincent Piazza, and Jason Ritter. The film earned some nice buzz on the festival circuit earlier this year, and Paramount has picked it up for a wider release on August 26th.

When four couples meet for a weekend away together, an attempt to run a “marriage intervention” goes hilariously wrong as everyone is forced to confront the secrets and fears that seem to be holding them back from finding happiness with each other.

Iconic '90s Teen Movie Dream Girls, Ranked From Whatever to Da Bomb

  • Moviefone
Teen movies were such a strong staple of the '90s that perhaps one day they will be studied by archaeologists in order to understand American youth at the turn of the 20th century. Sure, the genre still exists, but we'll always long for classics that embody the Hollywood high school spirit of "Can't Hardly Wait" and "She's All That." And '90s teen movies typically came with female characters who everyone wanted to be with... or just be. These ladies defined the era and some of them changed the way we dressed, acted, and talked forever.

Here, we rank a few unforgettable '90s teen movie dream girls, from just "whatever" to mind-blowingly awesome. Let it be known that rank position has nothing to do with looks (duh, they're all total Bettys), but is based on factors such as cultural impact, untouchable "it" factor, overall personality, and general badass-ery.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ethan Embry are trying to get a Can't Hardly Wait reunion movie going

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ethan Embry are trying to get a Can't Hardly Wait reunion movie going
Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ethan Embry seem to be rallying support for a Can't Hardly Wait reunion movie.

The teen comedy named after a Replacements song has had an enduring appeal for the children of the 1990s over the last 17 years, but rumours of a sequel never really caught fire.

That could all change following a screening of the film at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery last weekend, where several cast members reunited.

Jennifer Love Hewitt led the charge for a revival after the screening, writing on Twitter: "Can't Hardly Wait reunion movie anyone? Let's get them to make it!"

'Can't Hardly Wait' Cast Want a Reunion Movie

'Can't Hardly Wait' Cast Want a Reunion Movie
In 2018, it will be 20 years since the Can't Hardly Wait gang threw their epic graduation party on the big screen. The cast think it's about time for a reunion movie, and now is as good a time as any to start the hype machine. Will we see Can't Hardly Wait 2 become a reality over the course of the next two years? Lead actors Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ethan Embry sure hope so.

It happened this year with Wet Hot American Summer, which returned in the form of a Netflix series. Like that movie, Can't Hardly Wait has continued to grow a strong cult following over the years. It stands as a perfect time capsule for the 90s, especially in terms of clothing, slang and the social structure of the teenage movement at that time. 90s nostalgia is about to reach its crescendo soon, and this may be the perfect sequel to get us there.
