Only One Scene From The Original 'Script' Made It Into Labyrinth  

Once upon a time in a distant land, before the all-consuming creature known as CGI was even a thing, there was a wise and gentle puppeteer named Jim Henson. He spent many years crafting his gang of colorful creatures, known as the Muppets. Soon, though, the Muppets decided it was time to leave their cozy home on the TV and make the perilous crossing to the big screen.  Luckily, everyone loved them, and even grumpy old Orson Welles wanted a piece of the action for their first feature, "The Mupp...

The Mad Max Movies Ranked: Shiny And Chrome (And Thunderdome)  

The "Mad Max" series is one of the few film franchises that feels completely plucked from the mind of its creator. From the world building to the construction of car chases, filmmaker George Miller has figured out not just how to make perfect action films but how to expand and build upon the ones that came before. They have not always been easy to make (far from it), but they are uninhibited thrill rides that you can rewatch time and time again. The upcoming "Furiosa," a prequel to "Mad Max: F...

The One-Paragraph Pitch That Spawned It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia  

The longest running live-action series on television came to its creator in a dream. The idea that sparked "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" was a single scene that the series creators Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, and Charlie Day would later turn into their hit FX sitcom. "It's Always Sunny" is about five friends that run a dive bar in the South side of Philadelphia. The characters are outrageously self-serving, and they enable one another in their terrible behavior.

Jensen Ackles Was Caught Off Guard By His Animated Batman Casting  

If you've been keeping up with the depraved adventures of Prime Video's Supe-hunting crew, "The Boys," then you'll recognize Jensen Ackles as the vintage hero recently thawed out to help in the endless battle against Homelander. As Soldier Boy, Ackles is like the walking manifestation of toxic masculinity: he's a dark play on Captain America with shades of the Winter Soldier sprinkled in, except instead of being a war hero who gives spectacular motivational speeches, he's a fraud with enough po

A Tiny James Bond Henchman Role Launched Dolph Lundgren's Acting Career  

It's practically a Hollywood tradition for actors to appear as background extras or in bit parts before they make it big, and Eon Productions' series of James Bond films have been around for so long that multiple actors who appeared in them when they were still unknown have gone on to greater fame, including Joanna Lumley (who appears in 1969's "On Her Majesty's Secret Service") and Gerard Butler (who turns up briefly in 1997's "Tomorrow Never Dies").

A Particularly Tough Matrix Stunt Nearly Took Carrie-Anne Moss Out Of Commission  

"The Matrix" was a mind-blowing film when it was first released. Now-famous aspects of the film, like the "bullet time" sequence, may no longer seem so exceptional, but they were like nothing that audiences of 1999 had ever seen. "The Matrix" broadened our perceptions of reality and kicked off a franchise with three sequels, including the recent film, "The Matrix Resurrections." From the monochrome costumes to the trippy premise and the wild fight sequences, "The Matrix" just oozed coolness. T...

Elvis Music Executive Producer Elliot Wheeler On Living A Composer's Dream [Interview]  

There are only two minutes without music in "Elvis." Baz Luhrmann's epic is wall-to-wall jams that bridge the past and the present. The biopic uses Elvis' classics not as wallpaper, but as storytelling. Right from the beginning, a new spin on "Suspicious Minds" blasts a sound of doom.  The nearly three-hour drama is such an audibly immersive experience. One of the key figures behind the film's sprawling, rocking sound is the composer and music executive producer, Elliot Wheeler. "Elvis" isn't...

How The 2022 Box Office Compares To 2021 So Far, And What's Next  

2021 looked pretty good at the box office, all things considered, mostly because 2020 was absolutely abysmal for what should be obvious reasons. Improvements were made and, overall, last year finished 80% ahead of 2020 with $21.4 billion being raked in globally, compared to a dismal $12.4 billion in 2020. So, as we reach the halfway mark of 2022, how are things looking? In a word: good! Things started off on a good foot this year as theaters were still riding the "Spider-Man: No Way Home" wave

Copyright Troubles Threw The Spy Who Loved Me's Script Into Chaos  

James Bond was not in a good place in the mid-'70s. The classic film series had begun to flounder creatively, leading to a major box office disappointment, and separate financial issues had caused major fissures in EON Productions, the company behind the movies. A change was needed to give the character some new life, and in this case, the change would involve going back to the familiar. Two movies in, Roger Moore (James Bond #3) had failed to make a real impression playing the famed spy, and t

Ridley Scott Believes This Is The Most Important Thing When It Comes To Directing  

Ridley Scott didn't make his first feature until he was 40, but the now 85-year-old filmmaker has more than made up for lost time. He's currently shooting his 28th movie, "Napoleon," and has a development slate full of projects angling to be number 29. Stanley Kubrick could only muster 13 films over roughly the same period of time (a chunk of which was dedicated to an unmade Napoleon biopic), but his relentless perfectionism spared him the undercooked likes of "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "A

The 95 Best Action Movies Ever  

Action films are baked into the film medium's soft, celluloid tissue. Why was the movie camera invented? To watch things move. And nothing moves like a great action movie. Heck, every take starts with someone shouting, "Action!" But what makes an action movie great? The genre is already quite subjective.

The Bridge On The River Kwai's Bridge Went Through An Incredible Construction Process  

The road to developing "The Bridge on the River Kwai" into a feature film was long. Producer Sam Spiegel, a classic movie mogul for all it entails (flashes of creative brilliance, dictatorial tendencies, and a creepy fixation on teenage girls), saw in Pierre Boulle's 1952 novel the chance to make a truly stirring wartime epic. The book was a highly fictitious retelling of the disastrous building of the Burma Railway by Japan's prisoners of war that softened the real tragedy of the Burma Railway

Wicked Songwriter Explains Why The Movie Needed To Be Split Into Two Parts  

Stage musicals are tricky beasts when it comes to film adaptations. Many of them have very little spoken dialogue, which can lead to pacing issues when trying to re-imagine them as a three-act movie. What's more, Broadway musicals are split into two acts, the first of which typically climaxes in a show-stopping musical number followed by an intermission. Back in the 1950s and '60s, movie musicals like "West Side Story," "My Fair Lady," and "The Sound of Music" would come with a built-in intermi

Labyrinth Wasn't Quite The Story Terry Jones Was Trying To Tell  

Jim Henson's 1986 fantasy film "Labyrinth" is an odd duck, and not because of its copious amount of fantasy creatures. While the film's many passionate fans are generally drawn to David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King, the glam rocker's presence seemed antithetical to Henson's own musical sensibilities, which tended toward gentle folk rock and John Denver. In casting Bowie as a villain, was Henson commenting subtly on his music? "Labyrinth" was met with only warm reviews on its release, with so

Originally, The Russo Bros. were supposed to produce the project for "It: Chapters One and Two"

Every high-profile actor has their own unique process for what roles they pick and why.

Others relish the opportunity to work with the best and brightest in the business, becoming a particular filmmaker's "muse" of sorts and trusting them to bring out the absolute most in them w

All Eight Steven Spielberg Sci-Fi Movies, Ranked  

The evolution of Steven Spielberg's career has been fascinating to witness. After establishing what modern blockbusters look like with the 1975 animal attack movie "Jaws," he went on to pioneer a slick, audience-rousing style of adventure filmmaking that is venerated and imitated to this day. Along the way, he repeatedly indulged in high-end prestige fare, creating stories that depicted the world's most grievous injustices with compassion and sensitivity ("Schindler's List," "The Color Purple")
