The Princess Bride

Legendary television writer Norman Lear recently renewed the overall deal he has with Sony. The deal is set to take Lear into his 100th year on this planet of ours.

Variety published a feature about the 97-year-old Lear, but it was just a small part of that feature that set the ol’ internet on fire today. In it there is a quote from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, who says that some “very famous people” have approached Sony with hopes of remaking the 1987 fairy tale classic The Princess Bride, which was executive produced by Lear. You can see what he had to say below.

Blu-Ray Review: Scream Factory's Collector's Edition of CHILD'S PLAY

Child’s Play
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Directed by: Tom Holland
Written by: Don Mancini, John Lafia, Tom Holland
Cast: Catherine Hicks, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 87 Minutes
Release Date: October 18, 2016

“Hi, I’m Chucky, and I’m your friend till the end. Hidey-ho!”

Chucky, the pint-sized killer doll from 1988’s Child’s Play, is often mentioned in the same breath as slasher icons like Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger, but there’s something very unique about the denim dungaree-wearing antagonist in Tom Holland‘s film. While films like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street play on teenage anxieties, punishing high school kids for drinking, smoking marijuana, and having premarital sex, Child’s Play is fixated on the fears of small children.

Five-year-old Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) is entranced by commercials for “Good Guy” dolls on TV. The ads play during a “Good Guy” cartoon series, which Andy watches while wearing his “Good Guy” pajamas and eating “Good Guy” cereal. The commentary on Reagan-era consumerism is hard to miss here. His mom, Karen (Catherine Hicks), a widow struggling to make ends meet, buys Andy a “Good Guy” named Chucky for his sixth birthday, unaware that the doll is a plastic prison for the soul of Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif), a serial killer and voodoo practitioner.

“I just love a man who gives you head – and lets you keep it!”

Directed by Gilbert Adler, 1996’s Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood stars Dennis Miller (Saturday Night Live) as Rafe Guttman, a wisecracking detective who is called upon to investigate some strange happenings at a bordello on the edge of town.

After her delinquent brother Caleb (Corey Feldman) goes missing, Catherine Verdoux (Erika Eleniak) enlists the services of a private eye. After a night of heavy drinking and debauchery, Caleb and a friend visit an underground brothel in the guise of a funeral home, never to be seen again.

Turns out the whorehouse is owned and operated by Madam Lilith (Angie Everhart), a redheaded vampire whose lustful servants are ready and willing to suck patrons dry! Armed with a Super Soaker filled with holy water and a battle ax, Guttman and televangelist Reverend Jimmy Current (Chris Sarandon of Fright Night) must fight their way out of Lilith’s den of sin and save the captive Catherine.

‘Dog Day Afternoon’ Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

Dog Day Afternoon Film Poster 1975

Dog Day Afternoon, the larger than life true story about an everyman and his psychotic partner who rob a bank in Brooklyn, an operation which winds up botched and turns into a literal three-ring circus for a few hours afterwards, gripping the city of New York with an anti-heroic proceeding that almost borderlined on sheer, bizarre entertainment, celebrates its 40th anniversary this week.

Full of potent performances from Al Pacino, John Cazale, Charles Durning, Chris Sarandon, and others, a surefooted, ham-fisted naturalistic directorial style by Sidney Lumet, and an Oscar-winning script by Frank Pierson, Dog Day Afternoon remains a benchmark film of the 1970s, and in many ways expertly captures the entire zeitgeist of not only the mid decade feel and energy of New York City but also of America at the time, full of a post-Watergate paranoia and unease, with huge slices of humor and even pathos in the middle.

The Princess Bride

Just recently Entertainment Weekly gathered up the casts of some popular movies for their 2011 Cast Reunions issue, which included the cast of director Rob Reiner‘s 1987 timeless fantasy classic, The Princess Bride.

And being that it happens to be my own personal favorite movie of all time, I eat this stuff up. So when I saw that Good Morning America also jumped on the cast reunion for their Totally Awesome ’80s Week, giddiness levels elevated. Stars Cary Elwes (Westley/The Man in Black), Robin Wright (Princess Buttercup), Chris Sarandon (Prince Humperdinck), Wallace Shawn (Vizzini), Billy Crystal (Miracle Max), and Carol Kane (Valerie) were present to discuss the movie and tell stories from behind the scenes, including a very funny one involving the late Andre the Giant, who played Fezzik.

You can see a video of the cast of The Princess Bride reunited on the set of Good Morning America by heading below now.

When it comes to action films, very few people do them as right and as interesting as actor Jason Statham. Be it the Transporter franchise or the pair of Crank films, there has always been something about the actor that has made him one of the most beloved names within the genre.

And now, we have the first poster for his next effort, Safe. Check it out in full here below.

The film comes to us from writer/director Boaz Yakin and follows a former elite operative, who is forced to keep a young girl safe from those who desperately want to see her demise. The cast includes Catherine Chan, Chris Sarandon, Robert John Burke, Reggie Lee, Danny Hoch, and James Hong, and looks to be something of an interesting bit of counter programming come its release on October 28, 2011.

Fright Night

DreamWorks is currently developing a remake of the 1985 horror film, Fright Night, and a pretty impressive cast has now been formed. Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Terminator Salvation) was already a member of the cast, and now he is joined by Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, The United States of Tara) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges, Miami Vice).

The movie follows a horror movie fanatic named Charlie who suspects that his new neighbor is actually a vampire. Obviously no one would possibly believe these suspicions, so Charlie has to go to the host of his favorite late-night horror TV show, Fright Night, Peter Vincent.
