The Coen Brothers' 1998 film 'The Big Lebowski' has become a massive cult favorite in the 15 years since its initial release with its tale of a lifelong slacker known to his friends as The Dude. Thanks to an unfortunate case of mistaken identity, The Dude finds himself mixed up in the kidnapping of a millionaire's young girlfriend, further complicated by his hotheaded friend, Walter. Along the way he runs into a pornographer, some nihilists and a ferret on his quest to just, you know, be left alone to do his thing, man. Today, we take a look back at the cast of this beloved comedy classic and see what they're up to now.
For a gal named Carrie White, she's sure got a lot of red on her.
Watching Kimberly Peirce's 'Carrie' is an odd experience. If you've seen Brian De Palma's version from 1976, this new version is - and there's really no point in denying this - like watching a cover band. There's a tweaked scene here and there (including a new, creepy-as-heck opening) plus the addition of cell phones and references to 'Dancing With The Stars.' This remake, more than most, really feels like hitting the same marks. It may be a peculiarity specific to 'Carrie,' because, let's face it, not a whole heck of a lot happens in this story. Considering most moviegoers' familiarity, there's plenty of room to stew and think, "Why is this considered such a classic?"
Just when you thought Liam Neeson's late-career resurrection as a gruff 'n growling action hero may be ready for a break, the first 'Non-Stop' trailer shows up, proving that the man who once played Oskar Schindler has officially transformed into the closest thing the 21st century has to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not that we'll complain too much -- Neeson is pretty good at making preposterous action movies work and this one looks like another entertaining entry in the "Liam Neeson Kills Everyone" sub-genre.
When an outcast is pushed too far by a cruel prank at her high school prom, she unleashes her telekinetic powers on her classmates.
We're not entirely sure when Jeff Bridges officially became the go-to casting for "grizzled old mentor," but the 'Seventh Son' trailer shows him taking on that role yet again. In fact, the mere presence of Bridges elevates what otherwise looks like a fairly generic fantasy story into something that may be worth catching.
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.
The 'Carrie' remake trailer doesn't seem to be holding anything back. We don't mean that it's extra gory, we mean this trailer seems to show pretty much everything that happens in the movie. Perhaps the events will be a surprise for those kids who never saw the original (or read the book), but most of the big events are here.
After cleaning up at the 2012 Emmys, the Sarah Palin/John McCain HBO movie 'Game Change' continues to rake in the awards at the 2013 Golden Globes with Julianne Moore winning Best Actress in a TV Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for TV for her Sarah Palin impression. Take that Tina Fey!
