Across The Universe 2018 banner

Across the Universe
Now available on: 4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | Digital
Directed by Julie Taymor
Starring Evan Rachel Wood, Jim Sturgess, Dana Fuchs, Martin Luther McCoy, T.V. Caprio
Columbia Pictures
Original release date: October 12, 2007
Fathom Events screenings: July 29 & 31, August 1, 2018

Thanks to Fathom Events and Columbia Pictures, I got to see one of my favorite films, Julie Taymor’s gorgeous 2007 musical drama Across the Universe, in theaters again. Finishing up a 3-day run on August 1, the limited-edition screenings included a special exclusive introduction from Taymor celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love in 1968.

Across the Universe uses the spectrum of classic Beatles songs to take our characters through the turbulence of late 1960’s America as we fought the unpopular Vietnam War abroad and waged cultural wars at home. Starring Jim Sturgess and Evan Rachel Wood, the film allowed Taymor to showcase her artistic style, and the array of songs by arguably the greatest band of all time show the wide range of human emotions that that era was dealing with.

Tommy Wiseau in The Room

Since it was first released, writer/director/producer/star Tommy Wiseau‘s top contender for worst movie ever made, The Room, has slowly but surely collected an impressive cult following. To this day, midnight screenings are held all over, attracting the movie’s fans to experience it the best way possible.

But due to a surge in popularity thanks to the recently released movie about the making of this best worst movie, The Disaster Artist, The Room is about to get a theatrical release no one who saw it when it first came out in 2003 would have ever believed it would one day get. Instead of the occasional midnight movie screening, it’s been announced that Wiseau’s disasterpiece will be getting a wide theatrical release in around 600 theaters all over the country.

In honor of the 35th anniversary of the theatrical release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Paramount Pictures and Fathom Events are bringing the Director’s Cut version of the film to theaters for two days only this month (9/10 & 9/13). I got the chance to see the film at my local theater at the Sunday afternoon screening, and even though I’ve seen this movie — which is one of my favorites of all time — countless times, getting to see it on the big screen again was elating.

The screenings all include a new interview with the film’s star William Shatner, who played the iconic role of James T. Kirk. In the interview, which begins about 15 minutes prior to the screening times (2pm and 7pm local time), the actor talked about making the sequel and how it reinvigorated the Star Trek franchise.

Fathom Events North by Northwest 03

North By Northwest
Available now on Blu-ray
Written by Ernest Lehman
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Jessie Royce Landis, Leo G. Carroll, Martin Landau
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)
Runtime: 136 minutes
Release date: July 28th, 1959

The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, is one the greatest filmmakers of all time. One of his classics is the 1959 mystery thriller North By Northwest starring Cary Grant, James Mason, and Oscar winner Eva Marie Saint. The film ranked 55th on the American Film Institute’s 100 years, 100 movies list as well 4th in their list of 100 Thrilling American Films. Debuting in theaters a year after Hitchcock’s classic Vertigo, and a year before he changed the game of horror with Psycho, North By Northwest in unique in the sense, the three years before James Bond burst onto the scene in Dr. No, North By Northwest created the template for the famed spy-hero. Now, thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events, North By Northwest is in theaters for one more day as part of TCM’s Big Screen Classics series.

Dirty Dancing Fathom Events 05

Dirty Dancing
Available now on Blu-ray
Written by Eleanor Bergstein
Directed by Emile Ardolino
Starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Cynthia Rhodes, Jerry Orbach, Kelly Bishop
Vestron Films
Rated PG-13 | 100 minutes
Release date: August 21st, 1987
Fathom Events screenings: January 29th & February 1st, 2017

Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) thought it would be a regular summer in the Catskills with her family. A daddy’s girl, she and her mom, dad, and sister Lisa (Jerry Orbach, Kelly Bishop, Jane Brucker) went to Kellerman’s resort, that catered to the rich, complete with Ivy-League waiters. Kellerman’s also had the dance people, who gave lessons and entertained the guests. Baby, who wanted to be in the Peace Corps and always believed the best, was floored by the “dirty dancing,” and dazzled by Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), lead dancer. After an impromptu dance lesson, Baby inadvertently ended up trying to help the other lead dancer Penny (Cynthia Rhodes), who got knocked up by one of the waiters, Robbie (Max Cantor). Stepping into her mambo shoes, Johnny trained Baby to dance, and they fell in love. No summer romance would sizzle unless it was forbidden, and theirs was no different. This was the story of Dirty Dancing, which propelled a cast of virtual unknowns into instant fame.
