In 1998, Steven Soderbergh released the crime comedy 'Out of Sight,' based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name. Starring George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, and one heck of an ensemble cast, the film followed a bank robber as he's chased down by a U.S. Marshal and the two unwittingly fall for each other. While the film wasn't a huge success at the box office, it was a hit with critics and cinephiles alike, and has become a beloved classic. 16 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
A pleasant surprise for your weekend: 20th Century Fox has unleashed a ton of new images from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' including a few behind the scenes photos from the upcoming sequel to 'First Class.' There's over 20 new pics featuring Wolverine, Mystique, Xavier, and a couple more looks at Quicksilver from the exciting latest installment in the franchise to get you even more stoked for the impending release.
This week, James Franco, the multi-hyphenate talent and student of all things art, finally chimed in on the ongoing shenanigans (Shia-nanigans?) of Shia LaBeouf -- from his plagiarism of Daniel Clowes, to his plagiarized apologies for his plagiarism, to his bizarre public appearances wearing a bag over his head declaring "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE," among various other ridiculous things. Franco's op-ed in The New York Times read like a myopic declaration of male actor privilege, particularly because you'll never see actresses pulling the same stunts LaBeouf's been pulling (or that their other male counterparts have, for that matter) -- and if they have or had, they certainly wouldn't have a career afterward.
In 1999, Larry and Lana Wachowski unleashed their inventive feature 'The Matrix,' which followed computer programmer Neo (Keanu Reeves) as he learns that reality as we know it is simply a simulated one created by machines to keep humans under control. Neo discovers he is the "Chosen One" destined to lead a rebellion against the machines and free humans from their oppression. The film was wildly successful and spawned two sequels, an animated anthology, and a video game, and made the visionary Wachowskis a household name. Fifteen years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved contemporary sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
On the heels of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' trailer premiere comes this delightful treat from Marvel: an introductory video to help you get to know Rocket Raccoon a little better. One of the most intriguing characters and the one fans are most excited to see translated to the big screen, Rocket's the hero we're all stoked to know more about. Thanks to this short featurette, now you can.
Released in 1993, Disney's version of 'The Three Musketeers' starred an ensemble of '90s talent including Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Chris O'Donnell in the classic tale of D'Artagnan and his quest to join the legendary Musketeers, a trio of men sworn to protect the King of France. The film, which reunited 'Young Guns' stars Sheen and Sutherland, was a success at the box office (but poorly received by critics). Now, 21 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see what they're up to these days.
The 1988 Western flick 'Young Guns' featured an ensemble of "who's who of '80s" talent -- including Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen and Kiefer Sutherland -- in a telling of the adventures of Billy the Kid during the Lincoln County War in New Mexico in the late 1800s. A smashing success at the box office, 'Young Guns' spawned a sequel and has become something of a classic in its own right. Twenty-six years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
It's all happening! Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is dropping a trailer ... tomorrow night! That's right, after months of waiting, we'll finally get a full trailer for James Gunn's upcoming adaptation of the Marvel comic, and to tide you over until then, the studio has released some new photos featuring the intergalactic heroes, including one very popular talking raccoon.
Welcome back to 'Girls' Talk, where we here at ScreenCrush are joined each week by critics to discuss the latest episode. In this week's outing, the ladies head to the beach for a "healing weekend" (Marnie's words), but when they encounter an old friend and no one wants to adhere to Marnie's tight schedule, tensions quickly mount and it's not long before a weekend of healing becomes one of picking (or stabbing) at wounds.
We are still a few months away from the release of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' and marketing is ramping up quite a bit, with trailers, more photos, and lots of sneak peeks. Today, we've got a couple of rather revealing featurettes that take you behind the scenes of the upcoming superhero sequel -- and one of them gives you a sneak peek at some of its many (many) villains, including a brief glimpse of Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin!
