Much has been made about why we haven’t seen Luke Skywalker yet in any of the promotional materials for The Force Awakens – not on the official poster, nor in any of the three trailers (save for the one metal hand rising up to R2-D2, out from under a dark cloak). The most popular speculation trending [...]
Despite having never even been nominated for an Academy Award, (outrageous! - but Cary Grant never won one either, so great company there), Maureen O'Hara - who passed away Saturday at the age of 95 - was one of the great actresses and striking screen idols of Hollywood's Golden Age. O'Hara shot to stardom during the black-and-white era, [...]
To see just how unreliable even the most convincing conspiracy theories are, watch this. In a compelling 12-minute presentation, someone has concocted the theory of how filmmaker Robert Zemeckis actually predicted the 9/11 attacks throughout the Back To The Future films – over a decade before the attacks even happened - and then confirmed that's what he [...]
In the debut of Variety's 2015 Awards Season short video series "Contenders Conversations", the trade mag sits down with Matt Damon and director Ridley Scott to discuss the most popular film of the fall season, the emotional "science faction" adventure (as Damon dubbed it) THE MARTIAN.
Recently we saw Daisy Ridley - aka Rey - respond to the new FORCE AWAKENS trailer, with overwhelmed tears. Now John Boyega - aka Finn - gives us his response.

With little fanfare, controversial filmmaker (and largely reviled public figure) Mel Gibson has returned behind the camera to direct his first film in 10 years. Titled Hacksaw Ridge, it's been filming since the middle of September. That it's a war movie - set in WWII, specifically - should come as no surprise; that the hero's a [...]
Finally - a Jimmy Kimmel segment worth watching. Last night, the talk show host gave every BACK TO THE FUTURE geek the BTTF DAY gift they wanted the most: a Marty and Doc Reunion (and yes, I'm singing that phrase in my head to Paul Simon's "Mother and Child Reunion"). Doc's getting older than our [...]
Sort of. It's not exactly Mr. Fusion, but we'll take it - along with the closet thing to a Marty/Doc reunion that we're likely to get.
USA TODAY Today’s the day when, at 4:29pm Pacific Time, Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel from 1985 to our year 2015. BTTF fans will be celebrating in a variety of ways all day, most notably with screenings of the entire trilogy in theaters across the country (yes, I will be attending). If you’d like more [...]
