Re-release Set

Fathom Events has set Julie Taymor’s “Across the Universe” has been set for a re-release on July 29, July 31 and Aug. 1 at more than 450 theaters.

Fathom, which is jointly owned by the AMC, Cinemark and Regal chains, made the announcement Monday and said the 2007 movie is being shown to commemorate the 50th anniversary of 1968 — which served as the setting for the film and its 33 songs by The Beatles including “Hey Jude” and “All You Need Is Love.”

Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess star as Lucy and Jude, a couple whose love inspires them to become involved with the protests and counter-culture movement that dominated the cultural landscape in 1968.

“‘Across the Universe’ has developed an extraordinary following since its release in 2007,” Fathom Events VP of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “This theatrical re-release presents an amazing opportunity for those fans to see, hear and feel this revolutionary film

The Top Ten Quotes from the Movie “Joe Dirt”

The lovable loser that was Joe Dirt didn’t have a lot going for him until he realized that he had everything, but he still managed to capture the attention of a lot of people. The sequel kind of bombed out but then with the original they caught something special. It wasn’t exactly lightning in a bottle but it was just enough to keep people laughing and provide a few fun quotes that could be repeated again and again and entertain the masses with their hilarity. The movie on the other hand is something you might reference as you get older

David Spade Honors Chris Farley on 20th Anniversary of His Friend's Death
On Monday, David Spade honored the memory of his late friend Chris Farley, who passed away 20 years ago from a drug overdose.

“20 years ago today,” the 53-year-old Joe Dirt star wrote alongside a photograph of his deceased friend.

Spade and Farley performed together for five seasons on Saturday Night Live before starring in the 1995 movie Tommy Boy. The film was Farley’s first major role after SNL, and he’d re-team with Spade the following year for another comedy, Black Sheep.

David Spade Puts His 1987 Buick Grand National Up for Sale

  • TMZ
David Spade's parting ways with one of his tricked out rides ... and it can be yours for a pretty reasonable price. Spade's selling his recently revamped 1987 Buick Grand National -- aka his "troublemaker car" -- which was once featured on "Jay Leno's Garage." We're told he's unloading the car, which he's had for 12 years, because he doesn't have room for it anymore. The 'Joe Dirt' star's dropped nearly $9k on the

Dave Grohl tricked Christopher Walken into talking funny, which really wasn't very hard

For many people, Christopher Walken isn’t the Oscar winner who cut a stark, gripping presence in movies like The Deer Hunter and The Dead Zone, but rather as the guy who puts an odd emphasis on his words in movies like Click and Joe Dirt (okay, this Joe Dirt scene is actually really funny). That’s not a bad thing,…

David Spade Is Aware of That Weird Kurt Cobain Mural, but Does He Agree That It’s Better to Burn Out Than Fade Away?
It’s better to burn out than fade away, but is it also better to be mistaken for Kurt Cobain? David Spade finds himself grappling with that odd, existential question this week, as images of a mural of his face accompanied by that Kurt Cobain quote (which originally came from the Neil Young song “Hey Hey, My My [Into the Black]” circulated online.

“Everyone is sending me this” tweeted the actor, late of such classics as “Tommy Boy” and “Black Sheep.” That’s all he said on the matter, leaving us all to wonder whether he’s amused, weirded out, or perhaps some combination of the two; Cobain quoted the line in his suicide note, after all, which Young found quite upsetting. The mural is painted on the side of a building in Linz, Austria, suggesting

New to Streaming: ‘Hell or High Water,’ ‘Kubo and the Two Strings,’ ‘Dog Eat Dog,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Dog Eat Dog (Paul Schrader)

Paul Schrader might want to consider expanding his thematic scope a little. Decade after decade, film after film, regardless of whether he’s been writing scripts for others (Martin Scorsese, first and foremost), or sitting in the director’s chair himself, the erstwhile Calvinist has come back to the theme of redemption with obstinate persistence. His protagonists are almost always men, they’re almost

[Review] One More Time

There’s a bothersome element to films about fictional musicians: the quality of the original songs, and the suspension of disbelief required – scratch that, demanded – to buy them as listenable. In the 2010 comedy Get Him to the Greek, it’s impossible to believe that Jonah Hill’s record company rep, a guy whose tastes run from iconic punk to Mars Volta, would ever jam to the hokey, generic drivel produced by Russell Brand’s fading rocker. Then there’s the notorious “Sugar High” finale in Empire Records, the Led Zeppelin knock-offs by the Almost Famous band Stillwater, and Ethan Hawke’s awful grunge snarling in Reality Bites. (Is it me, or was this sin disproportionately committed in the 1990s?)

Added to the roster is One More Time, a dramedy about a struggling New York singer/songwriter, Jude (née Starshadow) Lipman (Amber Heard), who decides to freeload at the estate of

Well, if you were old enough to see an R-rated movie, there's a chance that you might have celebrated the lovey-doviest of holidays by seeing one of the scariest thrillers of all time. Yep, Silence of the Lambs, the movie that made an anti-hero out of a guy who eats people's faces, opened in theaters on Feb. 14, 1991 - 25 years ago this week. A quarter-century later, the film hasn't left pop culture. That's in part because it was such a disturbing film.

‘Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser’ VOD Review

Stars: David Spade, Brittany Daniel, Christopher Walken, Patrick Warburton, Mark McGrath, Dennis Miller, Toby Bronson, Ron Flagge, Rhonda Dents, Tracy Weisert, Natalia Cigliuti, Erica Ibsen | Written by Fred Wolf, David Spade | Directed by Fred Wolf

The original Joe Dirt became something of a cult classic on DVD, even moreso in our household where it gets watched at least every other month… For some reason that underdog tale of a man beaten down by life but refusing to take it, living everday to its potential really struck a chord. But the same can’t be said for the sequel, which is essentially a parody of It’s a Wonderful Life, making a mockery of the first film and the character, in a movie that feels like it was made more for the cast to have fun and work than for the audience to enjoy.

David Spade Calls President Obama ‘Thirsty,’ Hmmm
Do you know what's been giving Joe Dirt 2 star David Spade the holiday blues? The Obamas! They're everywhere! They're like celebrities! President Obama was on the cover of GQ, Michelle Obama goes on Ellen like, all the time! Okay, well, maybe she's only been on Ellen twice, but do you know who wants to be on Ellen more, and be lauded on the cover of GQ as an important, influential, really cool dude? You guessed right: David Spade. Spade told TMZ that President Obama should have more "dignity" than to appear on Bear Grylls's show. "What president's doing reality shows? It just sounds weird to me," Spade mused. "Michelle Obama's on Ellen more than I am ... It just seems a bit thirsty to me." Sure, guy, that's what's happening here. By the way, Dave, do you need a glass of water? Your mustache looks parched.
