The first trailer for David Cronenberg's 'Maps to the Stars' has arrived online, reuniting the director with his 'Cosmopolis' stars Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon, as well as Cronenberg newbies like John Cusack, Julianne Moore, and Mia Wasikowska in this tale of the horrible treatment of child stars and the dark side of Hollywood.
‘Say Anything’ scarred me for life.
I’ve been aware for a few weeks that the 25th anniversary of ‘Say Anything’ was approaching and I’ve kind of gone out of my way to ignore it – even though there’s no doubt it influenced my teenage life more than any other movie. But, good grief, did this movie ever influence me to do some stupid things that I've suppressed from my memory. For one day only, I'll bring one of these memories to the surface.
Released in 1999, Spike Jonze's 'Being John Malkovich' starred John Cusack as a struggling puppeteer who finds a portal into actor John Malkovich's brain. The clever meta-fantasy dramedy was a hit, and earned Oscar nominations for Best Director for Jonze, Best Screenplay for the wildly imaginative Charlie Kaufman's script, and Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Keener. This year, the film celebrates its 15th anniversary, so join us for a look back at the cast of the film as we see what they're up to now.
Released in 1989, Cameron Crowe's 'Say Anything...' starred a baby-faced John Cusack as Lloyd Dobler, an average high school student who falls for lonely valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye), and the pair spend their summer together before Diane heads off to college. 25 years later, we're revisiting the cast of one of the most cherished teen romantic dramedies of all time.
Renowned pianist Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) comes out of retirement for one night only to play a classical concert in honor of his late mentor. What is already a pressure-filled evening for the stage fright-stricken musician quickly devolves into a nightmare when a mysterious man threatens to murder Selznick's wife if he makes a single mistake. Drawing inspiration from Hitchcock, De Palma and Italian horror, 'Grand Piano' is a surprisingly fun and snappy little thriller.
The true crime serial killer movie is about as played out as any genre in movie history, but nothing seems to be stopping 'em. The latest "ripped from the headlines" movie is 'The Frozen Ground,' which casts everyone's favorite lunatic Nicolas Cage as an Alaskan state trooper hunting down a serial killer played by John Cusack. Vanessa Hudgens is also there, but who cares about Vanessa Hudgens when you have a Cage and a Cusack? Anyway, the first trailer for the film has arrived.
The 1985 black comedy 'Better Off Dead' tells the tale of a high school student (John Cusack) who falls into a deep depression after his girlfriend dumps him.
The film got good reviews, performed decently at the box office and has become a cult classic, thanks to its quirky characters and memorable one-liners ("Two dollars!")
One person who doesn't like the film is Cusack. He reportedly walked out of the first screening and blasted director "Savage" Steve Holland for "making him look foolish." Cusack did seem to soften his stance on 'Better Off' during a recent Reddit AMA, saying he thought the film "could have been better" but that he's "glad people still love it."
See what Cusack and the rest of the cast of 'Better Off Dead' are up to these days below.
There are some directors who seem to be able to summon great casts with a simple snap of their fingers and the great David Cronenberg is one of them. His latest film, 'Maps to the Stars,' has not only secured financing, but a cast that includes Robert Pattinson, John Cusack and Julianne Moore.
We're not sure if the 2010 comedy 'Hot Tub Time Machine' has too many devoted fans, but we do know that it made a small profit at the box office before becoming a solid hit on DVD. And that's apparently enough to get a sequel off the ground! We had heard previous rumblings of a sequel, but the the latest update has come out of WonderCon, straight from star Craig Robinson's own mouth.
