20 Most Iconic Toys in Film

  • Cinelinx
Toys can often play an important role in a film, sometimes becoming the star. This is our list of the 20 most famous toys in film.

Toys and movies have a unique and long-running relationship. In the beginning, toys were just props in movies. Somewhere along the line, someone figured out that toys could be used to help sell movies, and vice versa. Merchandising began, and children everywhere could find either the toys featured in their favorite movies or toy versions of things from their favorite movies on the shelves of their local toy stores. Some toys also graduated from being props to being characters. First animation, then stop-motion, puppetry, and later CGI helped to bring them alive on screen. More recently, movie studios have begun making movies based on toys.

Throughout all of this, one thing has remained consistent: the important role that toys have played in film. However, there

It's Now Legal to Drink Beer and Watch Deadpool in Utah

It's Now Legal to Drink Beer and Watch Deadpool in Utah
A federal judge has sided with a movie theater in Utah that was facing revocation of its liquor license for showing the R-rated Deadpool. In April of 2016, the state of Utah threatened to take the liquor license of the Brewvies theater for showing Deadpool while serving alcohol. The state contends the theater violated Utah liquor laws that forbid licensees from showing full nudity or sexually explicit conduct. Brewvies previously faced a fine for violating the same statute by showing The Hangover, Part II and the theater accused the Dabc of threatening its license over Magic Mike Xxl and Ted 2.

Last year, three undercover agents bought beer and watched a screening of Deadpool (and probably had a great time) at Brewvies. Because of a state law prohibiting the display of sexual material in a place that serves alcohol, the Dabc threatened to fine the theater $25,000 and suspend their liquor license for 10 days.

Author: Scott Davis

StudioCanal have today unveiled a brand new UK trailer for their upcoming action-comedy heist film Logan Lucky, which you can view below.

The film marks the comeback of acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh, his first theatrical release since 2013’s Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra, which was released on HBO in the Us in the same year (it did get a UK cinema release). Logan Lucky stars Channing Tatum (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last jedi) as brothers Jimmy and Clyde Logan who plot to steal a multi-million loot from a motor speedway event.

Peter Kay's Car Share: a rare treat of a sitcom

Gem Wheeler May 3, 2017

With series two over and no further episodes on the horizon, we salute funny, warm, clever sitcom Peter Kay's Car Share...

Everyday life may be full of funny moments, but it’s fair to say that most of them aren’t found during the commute to work; traffic jams, roadworks and incompetent drivers raise stress levels like little else. The prospect of watching two people make small talk in a confined space as inane radio jingles play gooseberry in the background doesn’t sound like a promising start for a comedy series. Yet somehow, Peter Kay's Car Share won a huge audience for its first series on BBC One back in 2015. After a dramatic ending to its second run this week, fans were desperate to learn what would become of star-crossed couple John and Kayleigh’s burgeoning romance, only to have those hopes dashed when star, co-writer

Fortune Feimster to Star in Comedy ‘Bad Cop, Bad Cop’ for DreamWorks

Fortune Feimster to Star in Comedy ‘Bad Cop, Bad Cop’ for DreamWorks
DreamWorks Pictures is developing police action-comedy “Bad Cop, Bad Cop” with Fortune Feimster starring.

The project is based on a spec screenplay written by Feimster, Brian Jarvis, and Jim Freeman. The story focuses on a pair of incompetent police officers who wind up discovering a conspiracy of corruption in their own precinct.

Scott Stuber’s Bluegrass Films is in talks to produce. No director is yet attached.

Jarvis, Freeman, and Feimster previously sold a pilot to ABC in 2015. Feimster also starred as an Uber driver on the first day of her job in DreamWorks’ comedy “Office Christmas Party,” which was produced by Bluegrass.

Feimster has a Netflix standup special in the works and is a regular on “The Mindy Project.” She was named one of Variety‘s 10 Comics to Watch in 2014.

“I’m not your typical woman comic,” Feimster said at the time. “I never wanted my size or my

Logan movie review: wounded Wolverine, dangerous beast

MaryAnn’s quick take… The X-Men series — the entire superhero genre — has never seen a film like Logan before: raw, rageful, tormented, human. Best of the series yet. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love the X-Men movies; love Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

With their extended metaphor about mutation as a stand-in for all the many reasons humans find to be bigoted toward other humans, the X-Men stories have always been perhaps the most grounded of the superhero universes, at least in their exploration of what it means to be “super” in a world where “super” is feared and hated, where “super” is ostracized. The mutants of X-Men are just ordinary people with unusual talents that, for the most part, they have to hide, and the movies in this series — of which we have had 10, counting this one,

Exclusive Interview: Director John Lee Hancock on The Founder

Steven Goldman chats with director John Lee Hancock about The Founder

Directed by John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks; The Blind Side), The Founder stars Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc – a down-at-heel salesman from Illinois who transformed a successful restaurant run by brothers Mac and Dick McDonald (John Carroll Lynch and Nick Offerman) into the McDonalds empire known the world over today. Based on a true story, Hancock’s film follows the trail of how Kroc, impressed by the brothers’ innovative assembly-line approach, maneuvered himself into a position where he was ultimately able – by degrees unwittingly and ultimately callously – to take control of the company, transforming himself in the process from failure to ‘founder’ of an American economic empire.

We spoke with John Lee Hancock about the making of The Founder in Los Angeles.

Trailer: The Founder

Michael Keaton is McDonalds

The Founder is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Keaton), a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.

Directed by John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks, The Blind Side) and starring Michael Keaton (Birdman, Spotlight), Nick Offerman (Fargo, Welcome to Happiness, 21 Jump Street), John Carroll Lynch (The Invitation, Ted 2), Linda Cardellini (Mad Men), B.J Novak (Inglourious Basterds) and Laura Dern (99 Homes, Jurassic Park), The Founder is released in UK cinemas 10 February.

The Founder movie review: look at what the golden arches hath wrought

MaryAnn’s quick take… Rather brilliant and kind of inspiring until it turns frightening and even sinister. A dark tale of the beginning of end-stage capitalism as profit above all. I’m “biast” (pro): love Michael Keaton

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

A year or so ago, I had my first McDonald’s hamburger in maybe a decade, probably longer. I plead drinking — I had been out with a bunch of friends — and it was purely to stave off the next day’s hangover by getting down some grease and carbs to absorb the alcohol. But, man, that burger was delicious. Seriously. So good. (I haven’t had another one since.) They really know what they’re doing at Micky D’s.

I have also once attended what was then the world’s biggest McDonald’s, in Vinita, Oklahoma.

A Monster Calls movie review: the monster is within us all

MaryAnn’s quick take… A fairy tale of the Grimm sort: no happy ending, no heroes or villains, just hard truths about life and human nature. Important, beautiful, heartbreaking. I’m “biast” (pro): big fantasy fan

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is my big worry re A Monster Calls: people who don’t read reviews will hear only that this is a fantasy movie based on a young-adult novel and presume that it is a kiddie movie. And then they will freak out when they discover how dark and angry and bitter and oh-so un-fairy-tale it is, how it gave the little ones scary dreams and why didn’t someone tell them? And a movie that is important and beautiful and heartbreaking will be unfairly maligned.

So be warned: This is not The Bfg.

Oscars 2017: Jimmy Kimmel the safe choice for host but sparks unlikely to fly

After some underwhelming recent choices in Seth MacFarlane and Neal Patrick Harris, the Academy have gone for a cautious option with talk-show host Kimmel

This year’s recipient of the most poisoned chalice in showbusiness has been announced. The presenter of the 2017 Academy awards is to be 49-year-old comedian, voice-artist and talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, who has presided over Jimmy Kimmel Live! for ABC since 2003 and has already presented the Emmys twice.

Kimmel is a solid smallscreen name in the Us and does a big Oscars special on his show every year. In 2012, he produced an amusing all-purpose generic Hollywood spoof entitled Movie: The Movie, crammed with star walkons. He likely to be a bit unfamiliar to international audiences, who may have noticed him in a handful of as-himself cameo turns in movies like Ted 2 and Pitch Perfect 2.

Space Jam Star Michael Jordan Is Voted Favorite Athlete in a Movie

Space Jam Star Michael Jordan Is Voted Favorite Athlete in a Movie
LeBron James has often been compared to Michael Jordan, but it is Michael Jordon who just came out on top In what might be the most important category of all time. According to the movie going public, Michael Jordan's performance in the 1996 classic Space Jam is considered to be the best ever big-screen appearance by a sports star in a movie. LeBron James also made the list for Trainwreck, but he placed fourth. Maybe that will change after he stars in Space Jam 2?

The list was determined by a recent poll conducted by Fandango with more than 1,000 people voting for who they thought should come out on top. There is a lot of love from 90s kids for Space Jam, so it isn't that surprising that Michael Jordan won this race. LeBron James landed in the number four spot for his work in the Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck.
