BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
One thing was made crystal clear during NBC’s reunion special Saturday Night Live 40: the weekly sketch comedy show has launched an insane amount of massive movie stars. Many of them turned up as hosts, from Tom Hanks to Alec Baldwin. But others got their start as repertory players in the show’s cast, and used that exposure to kick start incredibly successful movie careers.
The villain of villains, Dr. Evil stopped by Saturday Night Live last night to give a lesson to North Korea and Sony on the true meaning of evil.
It's hard to imagine certain scenes being omitted or drastically altered in certain movies. Such is the case for the "Bohemian Rhapsody" scene in Wayne's World. It's such an iconic moment in the film and it's really hard to imagine any other song being blasted through the speakers of that car while all passengers and driver lip-synced their hearts out.
Gordon got his start in the entertainment business by taking on management duties of the newly-formed band Alice Cooper, and, in fact, he is reportedly the source of Cooper’s signature dark look and macabre live shows (he met Cooper at a house party with Jimi Hendrix and a sexed-up Janis Joplin).
Following the insane success of their Depp-fronted Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Disney was expecting Johnny Depp to be the major draw. But with his seemingly second flop in two years, it appears Depp's star power is failing. And I say it's his own damn fault.
The skit actually worked for me a lot more than I expected. It's a little too long, dragging a bit in the middle, but they managed to produce a few solid laughs (I'm the sucker who totally fell for the 'crushed nuts' bit). I even liked the not-so-subtle allusions to previous Oscar films like My Fair Lady. And besides, Kevin Kline is worth watching in just about anything and I especially love when he tries his hand at comedy.
It seems like lately, Broadway has been rummaging through the ’90’s for musical material. Perhaps the mentality is that remakes are all the rage on the big screen, why shouldn’t that apply to the theater? Just as it does for movies, the success of these stage musicals likely depends largely on the source material, and people's interest in it. Sister Act and Newsies already fall in or near the musical category, so their subsequent stage adaptations are likely to be fairly easy transitions, but...
This is just sad. Much like Eddie Murphy, I think Myers actually still has the capacity to be funny, but has gotten to a point where he realizes that he doesn't actually have to try in order to rake in the cash. To be honest, I'm surprised that it's taken this long for him to officially sign on and for the project to be put in motion as Goldmember made more money domestically than any other film in the franchise.
What do you do when you've got an animated character nobody really remembers and an actor famous for voicing another animated character
Mitty himself is a scrawny comic book writer looking to be as heroic as the characters he creates when he somehow gets wrapped up in the search for the Dutch Crown Jewels that went missing during the second
We received four new clips from the film, most of which are laid out in one way or another in the trailer. Two of the clips basically run together, in the forest with the ogre army
Powers director Jay Roach offered an update on Austin Powers 4 and says Mike is “working on ideas for it, people are definitely talking about it and I'm all good for it.”
Most celebrities worth their asking price would probably know better than to do this anyway. I'm ready to file this under "not news," except I guess when it comes to new technology, every single thing needs to be spelled out all over again
Inglourious Basterds is the must see movie this coming weekend, as long as you’re going into it with your eyes open. It’s not Rambo with Nazis. I know, the trailers seem to say otherwise, but the actual gunplay is fairly minimal
