You’re Going To Wish You Were At This ‘Back To The Future’ Live Event (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Secret Cinema Back to the Future

Fair warning: this post will both bring a smile to your face if you’re a fan of Back to the Future (or movies in general), and also make you sad that you weren’t there to experience it in person. Unless of course you WERE there to experience it, in which case I am super jealous of you.

Many of you are likely already familiar with Secret Cinema, an organization from the UK that’s been around for a while now and has a large and ever-growing fanbase (and with very good reason, as you will soon see). For the rest of us who had never heard of them, myself included, the company puts together these immersive themed events, such as movie screenings. But instead of just showing the movie and having attendees dress up as characters and so on, they go all out, recreating locations and costumes and other significant aspects of the film. Basically, they bring those who attend INSIDE the movie, so you feel like you’re in the same world it was set in.

They’re most recent event was Back to the Future, and it is simply remarkable what they put together. This was no doubt the single greatest BTTF party ever. Click on over to the other side to see what it looked like.

Pitch Perfect 2 Header

One of the most surprisingly hilarious films of 2012 was Pitch Perfect. The film had a sweet blend of witty humor and top 40 pop songs mashups that even had some haters tapping their foot to the beat of the music. Now Anna Kendick and Rebel Wilson are back for some more in Pitch Perfect 2. The first film saw the Barden Bellas beat the odds to become the first female a capella group to win a national title. In the sequel, the Bellas will enter themselves in a world wide competition where no American team has won.

The first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 has comedy, cameos, the return of familiar faces, and of course music. But there are some emotional layers that can be heard as well, as hinted by the very first song sung in the trailer. Hit the jump to check it out.

Esteemed ‘Graduate’ Director Mike Nichols Has Died

Mike Nichols

Mike Nichols, famed director, writer, actor, and comedian (paired as a comedy team with Elaine May), who conquered Hollywood and the entertainment world in many facets and culminated a career which won him scores of accolades and unbridled success, has died. He was 83.

There really wasn’t much of the show business landscape that wasn’t treaded by the sharp mind and extremely creative talents of Mike Nichols, husband to ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer since 1988. His crowning achievement is The Graduate — in which he won a Best Director Academy Award in 1968 and which remains a film that is one of Hollywood’s most memorable productions — was one of the first films for the youth culture of the 1960s with themes of anti-establishment towards authority of every stripe. Nichols employed keen, perceptive direction throughout the comedy/drama, using memorable set pieces to tell a flawless story. (The opening sequence, in which the film’s protagonist Dustin Hoffman is on a long airport conveyor belt, is indicative of Nichols’ style throughout The Graduate).
