'Little Women,' based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, was released in 1994, and told the story of the March sisters, who grow up under the guidance of their mother during and after the Civil War. While the fictional girls' lives were blossoming, so were the careers of the film's young stars, like Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Winona Ryder and Christian Bale. Nineteen years later, we look back on the cast of this coming-of-age classic and see where they are now.
A successful Jason Statham film requires a limited amount of cinematic resources: a stunt budget, a cartoon villain, a script with peppered with goons to punch in the face, and a Jason Statham. Hire a director who has streamed at least three Statham action movies off Netflix to cobble together a thin plot and — boom! — entertainment.
Perhaps because Oscar-nominated screenwriter/painter Sylvester Stallone took on writing duties, Statham's latest film, 'Homefront,' dares to opt out of the formula in favor of a character-driven crime story. A novel idea, but unfortunately, this film is a bore. Like Stallone's own' Bullet to the Head,' 'Homefront' believes it's cut from the same cloth as Walter Hill's 'Southern Comfort,' but it can barely muster up the thrills of an episode of 'MacGuyver.'
You don't come by Jason Statham's house without paying the price! The action star takes the lead in Open Road's first 'Homefront' clip, which sees him going head-to-head with James Franco, playing a meth dealer and small-town red-neck thug named Gator. With a face that screams, "I mean business," you just know shit's about to hit the fan.
There are a lot of movies coming out this fall that you can get excited about. 'Thor 2,' 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' and 'Oldboy' among them. But, perhaps no movie holds our intense interest as much as 'Homefront' - the upcoming action movie written by Sylvester Stallone and starring Jason Statham and James Franco. There is no way we aren't going to love this movie and this exclusive 'Homefront' TV spot is further evidence of that.
Released in 1988, the dark comedy 'Heathers' follows a clique of popular high school girls (all named Heather) who invite newcomer Veronica (Winona Ryder) into their group. But Veronica is quickly fed up with all of their vanity and cruelty, and hatches a plan with her new, similarly dark-minded beau to take the trio down. Twenty-five years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
The internet might literally have exploded over news of Ben Affleck signing up as Batman for the 'Man of Steel' sequel, but it seems another Ben has been keeping busy as well. Ben Stiller's iconic Generation X movie 'Reality Bites' has been delivered to NBC for a potential TV series, with Stiller and original writer Helen Childress set to pen the script, but will the new series stick to the '90s timeline?
Michael Shannon has played more than a few nefarious types in his career, but none of them come close to Richard Kuklinski, aka "The Iceman." A vicious hitman with at least 100 corpses to his credit, he's all the more horrifying because Kuklinski was actually a real person. And 'The Iceman' is his story.
Check out the new trailer for the crime thriller after the break.
One of the best working actors these days is Michael Shannon (recently of 'Premium Rush'), because he always gives a committed performance, even if he's mostly asked to act a little off. He should be perfect for 'The Iceman,' the story of a real life assassin who was also a devoted father and husband.
Is Winona Ryder having a comeback? Post-'Girl, Interrupted' it was as if she diminished in the light of Angelina Jolie, who won the Oscar in 2000 (while Ryder wasn't even nominated). But in the last couple years she appeared in 'Star Trek,' 'Black Swan' and is now looking to co-star in 'Homefront.'
