In the extended spot, now available online, a still fresh-faced Broderick embarks on a Ferris-like day of hooky escapades (crank calling, singing in a parade). It’s nice that Ferris no longer has to bum rides off of people, but he’s no longer the walrus — he just looks at them at museums. Watch the clip below. Chick-chicka-chicka. READ FULL STORY »
Tag: I Remember When It Used To Cost A Nickel (11-20 of 87)
Honestly, what did they think was going to happen?
In an effort to be a hip, socially relevant movie theater (kind of like how your grandma just got a Facebook), Cineplex Australia introduced a live Twitter feed that would tweet comments made about movies currently playing in the chain’s four theaters.
Relax, this wasn’t an awards ceremony to honor the cinematic achievement that is Grown Ups. (That’s what the MTV Movie Awards is for!) Rather, it’s AARP: The Magazine‘s 11th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards, an event which rewards outstanding acting, directing and writing of filmmakers 50 and over and the movies your parents really, really liked over the past year. (Sorry, Shame!)
Echoing the Golden Globes, The Descendants and The Artist will walk away the victors at the Feb. 6 ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, as they’ve been named Best Movie for Grownups and Best Comedy for Grownups, respectively. (Considering I dropped the median age by about 15 years when I went to see The Descendants at a crowded Manhattan theater and that George Clooney is just so darn charming, this one is a no-brainer.)
Tina Yothers’ wigged-out appearance on last night’s Celebrity Wife Swap has set the Internet afire. Her impromptu responses (“there’s a circus under here!”) to Niecy Nash’s attempt to glam her up with spangle pants and fur vests were hilarious, but you may recall that Yothers comes by a wisecrack easily. Three decades ago this year, she played Family Ties‘ precociously wry youngest sister Jennifer Keaton. Here are a few of Jennifer’s best comebacks. READ FULL STORY »
'Beauty and the Beast' gives 3-D another big boost, but is this really about 3-D or is it just about nostalgia?
Last September, when the 3-D re-release of The Lion King roared to an impressive $30 million opening, Hollywood took serious notice. The movie industry’s 3-D boosters, who’d been facing tough questions about signs that audiences’ appetite for 3-D was waning, pointed to the huge success of the 3-D re-release of this 17-year-old movie and said, “See? Hakuna matata! No worries!” Disney ordered up 3-D conversions of Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc., and The Little Mermaid. James Cameron, who’s been busy getting Titanic ready for its upcoming 3-D re-release, said the success of The Lion King in 3-D proved to any nervous studio executives that gussying up a beloved old film with a new coat of 3-D paint could be big business. “They see the potential,” he told one interviewer. “All it takes is a little healthy greed and doubts tend to go away.” The estimated $25 million opening for Beauty and the Beast for this four-day weekend may not quite be as eye-popping as The Lion King‘s, but it clearly exceeded expectations, giving another dose encouragement to those who think that not only is 3-D still the wave of Hollywood’s future — it might also be the wave of its past.
It’s after 3:30 a.m. following Mitt Romney’s 8-vote win in the closest Iowa Caucus in history, and CNN After Dark is still live. No one gets to sleep until it’s time for CNN: Breaking Dawn! Except me — I’ll probably fall asleep in a minute.
Right now it’s just six people standing around a glass table, marveling at the seedy neon “CNN AFTER DARK” logo while the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams” plays in the background. Anderson Cooper is trying and failing to disapprove of it. An hour ago, John King had wandered around behind all of them while talking on his cell phone…with his mic on! It took me two minutes to realize who was speaking and where he was — a true hidden gem of the newsroom.
Oh, God, now there are seven of them!
It’s been a long, strange trip, but two sleepy old Iowan ladies stole the show: Edith Pfeffer, Clinton County GOP Chairwoman, and Carolyn Tallett, president of the Clinton County Republican Women. “What do you mean, the numbers don’t match?” Edith incredulously asked John King (who’d called the figures from the Clinton County precinct into question), who stood alongside a hilariously motionless Wolf Blitzer during what Anderson Cooper called “the best live phone call ever.” It was such a hit that the gang called them AGAIN a few minutes later! Edith and Carolyn were trending worldwide, after all.
Watch the videos of Edith and Carolyn’s phone calls to CNN After Dark: READ FULL STORY »
Will and Kate, your wedding has officially been replaced with a new royal event of the year — The Fresh Prince of Bel Air cast reunion! In a picture posted on Will Smith’s Facebook yesterday, he was joined by former costars James Avery (Uncle Phil Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hillary), Alfonso Riberio (Carlton), and Tatyana Ali (Ashley). If you’re prone to getting emotional and/or nostalgic, perhaps you shouldn’t read the sweet caption: “There’s nothin’ like spending Holidays with fam.”
It’s no secret how much we at EW love the ’90s show that made “yo homes, smell ya later!” a thing. In fact, we rhapsodized about the Prince‘s six glorious seasons back in August. Now just a few months later, Smith’s photo post is like the best Christmakwazukkah gift ever! READ FULL STORY »
Remember 1999? When we were afraid of the lights going out on Y2K? When President Bill Clinton was acquitted? When Sega still made game consoles? Those were good times. Boy bands were still “hot” and Saving Private Ryan won best picture (wait… what?).
Sadly, those days are gone, but thanks to some web genius we now have a perfect union of two of 1999′s most notable contributions to the pop culture lexicon: The Matrix and Mambo No. 5. (Fun fact, my friend Trevor and I went to our 8th grade Halloween party as Lou Bega and Neo, respectively.) Check out the pitch-perfect and amazingly awesome video below (wait until 1:00 for things to really look good). READ FULL STORY »
She’ll ransack Pakistan and run a scam in Scandinavia but Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego right now? The Chief is no doubt on it, but we’ve discovered that at some point she’ll be at a theater near you. Walden Media confirmed to EW the reports that they have acquired the rights to turn Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? from a beloved 90′s kids show/computer game into a live-action movie. (That’s right, you’ll get to shout “The warrant!” and “The loot!” all over again.)
According to Walden Media’s statement, they are “developing it as a potential starring vehicle for Jennifer Lopez.” READ FULL STORY »
