When you hear of a film that has Steven Spielberg attached to it, you can automatically expect greatness because the director consistently delivers. Matt Charman and Marc Platt worked with Spielberg on the amazing ‘Bridge of Spies‘ are joining forces once again on a new project, this time the focus will be on legendary newscaster Walter Cronkite and the Vietnam War.

There are some things in the world that immediately give you a sense of comfort. A favorite book on a rainy afternoon, catching up with a childhood friend that makes up more than half of your memories, and Harrison Ford at the cineplex. We got another shot of comfort in 2008 with ‘Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull‘ and again this last year with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘. Now, we have learned there will be another Indiana Jones movie in theaters the summer of 2019!

US-OSCARS-ARRIVALS

Steven Spielberg is ready to return to Warner Bros. and he’s coming back in a big way! While the director teamed with the production company, we were the beneficiaries of the fruits of that relationship with excellent films from the 1980’s including ‘The Goonies‘, ‘Gremlins‘, ‘The Color Purple‘ and the final pic the partnership produced ‘A.I. Artificial Intelligence‘ in 2001.

There’s been a project called ‘It’s ‘What I Do: A Photographer’s Life Of Love and War‘, which is a memoir by Lynsey Addario that has Hollywood clamoring to buy the rights for the big screen. It now seems that Warner Bros. has the upper hand and set to strike a deal with a highly bankable and talented team.

Here’s The Latest on Steven Spielberg’s New Projects!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 17th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here…

524034-steven_spielberg

There has been a lot of speculation recently about Steven Spielberg’s upcoming projects. Two of them will be for DreamWorks, and people have been curious as to which film he will tackle first. DreamWorks answered that question by announcing release dates for his next two projects. First, there is an untitled cold war, spy thriller, which will hit theaters on Oct. 16, 2015. Then less than a year later, his adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s book The BFG (The Big Friendly Giant) will open on July 1, 2016.

Hello, Jana here,

roald-dahl-the-bfg

Roald Dahl is a fantastic author that doesn’t get nearly enough mainstream credit. Film-goers have enjoyed his stories for years and most of us grew up with at least one of them. Favorites like ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘The Witches‘, ‘Matilda‘ and ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox‘ are a few examples of Dahl’s work that has been given a big screen treatment. Now we can add to that list ‘The BFG‘.

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks Teaming Up Again!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 22nd, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

09-steven-spielberg-tom-hanks-1

I’m like any other film-lover and I have favorite directors that I will religiously watch anything they turn out. I love the films of Joss Whedon, Cameron Crowe, Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg among others. Spielberg took a bite out of fame with one of my absolute favorite movies of all-time, ‘Jaws‘ in 1975. Yes, another thing I love is a pun, no matter how bad it can be. Spielberg has far too many epic films to count without devoting a whole article to the greatness that is Spielberg. Some of the highlights are ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial‘, the ‘Indiana Jones‘ films, ‘Schindler’s List‘…and on and on and on.

Water slides. Rich stuff. Booby traps. One Eyed Willie. Yes, folks.  We are finally getting a ‘Goonies‘ sequel that we have all been wanting for 20 years. Director Richard Donner and producer Steven Spielberg have just announced they got the green light from Warner Bros. to go forward with a sequel to ‘The Goonies‘.  They have a script already, which was written by Garth Jennings.  Jennings wrote and directed ‘Son of Rambow‘ and the recent ‘Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy‘ film.

Spielberg is a very busy man these days.  Not only is he the jury president for the upcoming 2013 Cannes Film Festival, but he working on ‘Robopocalypse‘, ‘Jurassic Park IV‘, another war series with Tom Hanks, ‘Under the Dome‘, ‘When Worlds Collide‘, amongst several other big projects. Perhaps the most interesting is that he is not developing the dream project of the late Stanley Kubrick, which is ‘Napoleon‘.

Streep + Hanks + Spielberg = ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

The first trailer and poster for the film ‘The Post‘ is standing straight up. It’s a big deal, because it has Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in the lead roles with Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair. That’s a powerhouse right there. The film will release on December 22nd, just in time for the holidays, but really, they want to get it in for Oscar consideration. The film releases everywhere next year on January 12. In addition to Hanks and Streep, the film stars Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods.

Here is a bit of unfortunate news.  Spielberg has been working on his next directorial effort on the heels of his award winning film ‘Lincoln‘, which is an “end of the world’ type of scenario called ‘Robopocalypse‘.  That film has been put on an indefinite hold, according to a source close to the project.  The film would center on the destruction of the human race caused by a robot uprising.  And the film was an adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s novel of the same name.

Hi, Bryan Here….

So we just finished the little Q&A with Steven Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt through Google+ where they answered people’s questions about the upcoming film.  And they also debuted the full trailer for the film, which looks AMAZING.  It will win Oscars.  The trailer is below and comes out November 9th, which is my birthday. Steven Spielberg directs Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.

David Strathairn is the latest actor to join Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’ film.  David Strathairn was in ‘Good Night, and Good Luck’ amongst tons of other films.  He joins Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Field.  Lewis will play Lincoln and Field will play Mary Todd Lincoln.  Strathairn will play William Seward, Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of State, an outspoken abolitionist and a core member of Lincoln’s wartime cabinet.  The film will begin production in the Fall in Virginia for a 2012 release.  Shaping up nicely wouldn’t you say??

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2010

Steven Spielberg’s next project he will direct will be “ROBOPOCALYPSE”  which is based on an upcoming novel written by Daniel H. Wilson.  The book is set to hit shelves on June 7, 2011 which you can pre order by clicking HERE.

It is a story about humanity trying to survive a robot/android uprising.  Sounds familiar.

They anticipate a 2013 release for this movie.  After all, Spielberg has got his TinTin films coming out before then.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

Jurassic World‘ burst onto the scene as a sequel/reboot hybrid film that made over $1.6 billion at the box office. Of course, there would be more, but at what cost? ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘ takes place a year or so after the events of the first film where the island where the theme park and dinosaurs were on are ravaged by an exploding volcano. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard team up again to save the dinosaurs, however they are misled by a maniacal businessman who has other plans for the dinosaurs, mostly being selling them at an auction to warlords across the country in hopes of turning these dinosaurs into military killing machines with freaking lasers attached to their heads for a profit. I’m not making this up.

4K UHD Review: ‘Ready Player One’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2018

THE FILM


One of the most anticipated movies of the year is finally upon us with Steven Spielberg’s return to the fantasy/sci-fi realm in ‘Ready Player One‘, which is based on the pop-culture fandom novel from 2011 of the same name by author Ernest Cline. The novel was a best-seller and was chock-full of the 1980s and 1990s references in the form of video games, movies, TV shows, and more. in fact, every page of the book was like reading a nostalgic diary of your past childhood favorite things. ‘Ready Player One‘ takes places a few decades into the future where a simulated and very realistic virtual reality game is the main form of entertainment where people put on goggles and can be anyone or anything they want.

Back in 1993, Steven Spielberg gave us the world of dinosaurs in such a moving, emotional, and entertaining way, that his first film ‘Jurassic Park‘, became a milestone in filmmaking and paved the way for a ton of creative minds over the next few years. With a mix of practical effects and state-of-the-art CGI effects, Spielberg and his crew of filmmakers created dinosaurs all over again, which became a huge phenomenon.

That’s right. The hit TV show ‘Animaniacs‘ is getting the reboot treatment and will air exclusively over at Hulu. The streaming giant is so confident in its return, it has already booked a two season order for new episodes, which will premiere sometime in 2020. It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since we last saw a fresh, new episode of ‘Animaniacs‘, but it’s true – that was the last time we saw one. The original run lasted from 1993-1998 and featured Wakko, Wakko, and Dot on their adventures, which also taught young kids a thing or two.

Film Review: ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2017

When you have names like Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep coming together for a movie, you expect something out of this world. That’s not really the case with this talented trio in their new film called ‘The Post‘. Don’t get me wrong, ‘The Post‘ is a good film, but like Spielberg’s recent movies in ‘Lincoln‘ and ‘War Horse‘, there is something magical missing. While the performances are all very good and the movie looks visually pleasing at all times, the script and delivery is a bit on the nose with emotion or lack thereof. Still, this is an important movie to watch in our current political climate as I imagine the true story it was based on back in the early 1970s, which paved the way and kept our “freedom of press” in tact.

A week or two ago, there was a disturbance in the force as Kathleen Kennedy, LucasFilm, and Disney fired their Star Wars IX director Colin Trevorrow. You can read about that HERE. Turns out, the studio execs couldn’t handle having a big creative force behind Star Wars. The search was on for another director. Were they gonna go with another indie filmmaker with good credentials or play it safe like they did when they replaced Miller and Lord with the capable Ron Howard?

Blu-ray Review: ‘Poltergeist III’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

91do0Gkj2GL._SL1500_

THE FILM

The original ‘Poltergeist‘ film was a perfect mix of horror and comedy. It had the minds of Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper behind it and went on to financial and critical success. Of course, they made sequels to make more money, but we’ve often seen that more times than not, these sequels don’t embody the spirit of the original and can come off quite bad. The original film spawned two sequels and a TV Series along with the recent horrible remake. ‘Poltergeist II‘ had its share of great moments, due to the amazing visual effects work and the whole family coming back to reprise their roles, but that’s not the case with ‘Poltergeist III‘, which is no doubt, the worst film in the franchise.

THE FILM

It’s hard to compete with the first ‘Poltergeist‘ film. You had Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper behind the scenes there with an excellent mix of straight out horror and comedy. You would be laughing at Craig T. Nelson sucking in his stomach in front of the mirror one minute, and scared to piss and back at the clown doll attacking little Robbie. It was simply perfect in every way. Some four years later, the studio decided to make a sequel since the first film did so well critically and financially, and it was called ‘Poltergeist II: The Other Side‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

I’m just thankful that Steven Spielberg is not doing awful period pieces like his last films, including ‘Lincoln‘, ‘War Horse‘, and ‘Bridge of Spies‘. Yes, those films won Oscars, but I’m willing to bet you’ve only seen the once and will never see them again. I’m thankful and excited that Spielberg has returned, at least for a few films into his magical world of sci-fi, which he excels at. This time around, Spielberg is tackling the children’s story of ‘The BFG‘ or ‘Big Friendly Giant’, by the great author Roald Dahl (‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory‘, ‘Matilda‘, ‘James and the Giant Peach‘, and ‘The Witches‘).

He didn’t begin his career as absolutely gorgeous, that developed over time. I had to learn to love his work for what it was.

He’s one of the first movie stars to take my breath away in ‘The Goonies‘ and he’s still going strong! Love this man! I don’t understand why Wizard World did not use the Grand Ballroom like they did last year, the Assembly Hall worked out well for some talent, but Astin deserved the big room! It was bursting beyond capacity while we waited for him to take the stage and he was funny, sincere and everyone’s best friend, just like we all expected him to be. He slipped in and out of character reciting lines as Samwise, giving Doug’s legendary lisp some good use from ‘50 First Dates‘, he was amazing to see and worth the price of admission on his own.

Film Review: ‘Bridge of Spies’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 14th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

‘Bridge of Spies’ by DreamWorks Studios.

The year 2015 gives us yet another Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg movie called ‘Bridge of Spies‘ with an added bonus of the Coen Bros. serving as co-writers. Now with a cast and crew like this, I expect something that would live on forever and win all the awards come award season. That’s not really the case here though, as Spielberg’s recent directorial efforts have been lacking a bit. I’m not saying they’re bad, I’m just saying that ‘War Horse‘ and ‘Lincoln‘ were long, slow, dreary period pieces with no real momentum, despite some awards and critical acclaim.

Two great family film companies, Walden Media and Jim Henson Productions, are joining forces to produce, and develop an original story about a rather nasty subject, a pagan demon who punishes wicked children at Christmas. Did I mention he has horns and looks fifty shades of creepy? They’ve gone with the title ‘Happy Krampus!‘ so they’re going to make it a family-friendly project with a live-action production.

Celebrate your July 4th Holiday with these Films!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 3rd, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

the-sandlot-20th-anniversary-1157_rgb

In the midst of family and friend get-togethers, 37 pounds of BBQ spare ribs, ten gallons of creamy cool coleslaw, floating in a pool, and setting off fireworks, while listening to Neil Diamond’s ‘America’, I also like to enjoy “that one night game a year”, meaning I love to watch July 4th inspired films. I usually do a mini movie marathon of them with the usual food and beverages that go with each film. I’ve done this the past few years, with one year, taking a break to do an all John Carpenter/Kurt Russell marathon. That was a lot of fun. But, for those of you who want to enjoy a movie or three over the holiday weekend, but keep with the spirit of the 4th of July, here are a few suggestions to keep you patriotic.

Steven Spielberg’sMinority Report‘ is a little more than 10 years old but the storyline is being expanded upon by Fox. The original film saw crime as a future event and were able to arrest the criminals responsible before they carried out the heinous crimes and the TV series is setting itself ten years after the end of Precrime in Washington, D.C. and one of the three Pre-Cogs is struggling to lead a normal life, but is always haunted by the never-ending visions of the future.

Film Review: ‘Jurassic World’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ydln1orxqd4neeasuboo

It’s been 14 years since we’ve stepped foot inside ‘Jurassic Park’ and got to witness all the wonder and terror of the magnificent creatures called dinosaurs. I think it’s pretty safe to say that the first film has been the best in the franchise so far with parts II and III falling behind in terms of overall enjoyment. However, this new reboot of the franchise comes a close second to the first film, as it seems like a 14 year sequel to part I and forgetting the last two films ever happened, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

‘Brave New World’ Going To Series For Syfy!!!

Syfy is digging their boots into their plans to re-invent themselves in the image of the channel’s origins by going back to offering quality sci-fi programming. More space opera, less sharks in tornadoes, hopefully they continue offering random former TV stars as sacrifice though, that’s entertaining as hell!

There are a lot of good movies out there. Hell, there are even some damn near perfect ones, but there are only a small handful of films that fall into the legendary category. These films that have become legend only come around once in a blue moon, but when they do, they tend to hit an emotional cord and stick around forever. I’m sure we can talk for days about what movies fall into this category, but there is one film in particular that definitely belongs here, and I’m willing to bet dollars to donuts that you’ve never even heard of it, nor seen it. Reason being, is that I’m talking about a home movie here. That’s right, a home movie.

‘Gremlins’ Will Undergo A Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 9th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

Gizmo

Up next for the remake film treatment is one of my childhood favorites, ‘Gremlins‘. I grew up loving Gremlins, they start out absolutely adorable, but just like any horror movie from the 80’s there’s a strict set of rules you have to follow to survive. Instead of not having sex, you can’t get the precious Mogwai wet or you will likely die. In a horror movie you don’t split away from your group, but in ‘Gremlins‘ you can’t feed them after midnight, or you will likely die. I wonder if there’s a parallel universe and movies are the Mogwai, if you get them wet, they replicate a bad copy of the original, I’d say that’s the cause for the remake-hell we are living through.

We have been reporting for a while that there will be a ‘Poltergeist‘ remake. Now the day has come where we have a full fledged trailer. Bottom line is that it looks clean, good, with some good scares. On the other hand though, I couldn’t see the “New Vision” (as the poster describes it) in the trailer. It looks literally the same as the original, but updated with mobile phones and newer technology. Don’t worry, the closet, the man-eating tree, and the clown doll show up still.

Hey guys, Jana here,

american-sniper-6

 

In the world of film, there are specific genres that stand out for me and one of those is war movies. I love different titles for a variety of reasons, the story, or even an actor, in this category there is one primary theme that ties each film together – heroes. Their outstanding courage is what gives us that lump in our throats and a swell of patriotic pride that causes us to lift these characters, real or imagined, to elevated heights. It takes a special kind of person to be a hero, I know I couldn’t do it, but I am eternally grateful for the men and women that take up that mantle and defend the lives and freedoms I hold so dearly.

Well now Fox has just given the greenlight to this big budget project. Max Borenstein (‘Godzilla‘) will be penning the pilot at least and Kevin Falls (‘The West Wing‘) will serve as show-runner.

2015 Disney Film Release Dates With Trailers!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

star-wars-disney-570x307

While the world is focusing on auld lang syne and bringing 2014 to a close, Disney is pointedly looking to the future or “To infinity and beyond!” as Buzz Lightyear would say. Walt Disney Studios has given us a wide list of release dates for 2015 including the first Star Wars since the mouse has taken ownership. It’s a big lineup and will, no doubt, bring in a wega-payday for the company. In the last year, three films, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘, ‘Maleficent‘ and ‘Captain America Winter Soldier‘ brought in over $700 million world-wide on their own. It stands to reason they can expect the same from 2015. Let’s kick it off with some animation!

Film Review: ‘American Sniper’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

This production sure has had its ups and down. Actor Bradley Cooper was cast as real life Navy SEAL Chris Kyle who is one of the most decorated SEAL in US History with a confirmed 160 kills in the recent war as a sniper. He is responsible for saving many US soldier’s lives. Shortly after Cooper signed on to star, David O’Russell (‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ and ‘American Hustle‘) wanted to direct, which would have made sense, because Cooper and O’Russell worked together before. But he dropped out and and Steven Spielberg signed on to direct ‘American Sniper‘. But yet again, Spielberg dropped out, leaving this project in limbo.

Scorsese and HBO Re-Team For Montezuma-Cortes Series!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Back in January there was talk of Steven Spielberg and Javier Bardem heading toward a script written by Steve Zaillian. Zaillian expertly took ‘Schindler’s List‘ from a novel and created a sweeping, gut-wrenching film that was lauded by critics and peers alike. The script in question was to showcase the murderous history of Cortes and Montezuma. Neither Bardem  nor Spielberg were officially attached to the project and if it is still in progress, it’s doing so quietly.

Hi everyone, Jana here,

Bryan Cranston

When you take a multi-faceted actor like Bryan Cranston, his many hats show throughout his career. You’ve got the spineless, browbeaten dad, Hal from ‘Malcolm in the Middle‘, the absolutely brilliant, frightening, genius that is Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad‘. Then you turn-around and he’s in the ‘Rock of Ages‘ musical whaling out Pat Benatar’s ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot‘. He does some fantastic voice-over work for animated productions. Remember the 6-episode of the animated version to ‘Clerks‘? Chances are if you’ve seen that, you’ve heard Cranston’s voice ( you also understand Jay’s saying “we steal monkeys all the time!” in a later film), but I digress. PLUS!!!  Don’t forget that he’s a bad boy with the roller skates! Remember that episode in Malcolm where he had a big skate scene? That was really him doing it! He’s a renaissance man. The real deal. So it shouldn’t be such a surprise that after Cranston wrapped with ‘Breaking Bad’ that he went straight to Broadway.

Transformers-4-IMAX-poster_1394643320

So here is the fourth film of ‘The Transformers‘ franchise from Michael Bay, who has basically rebooted his own series. And yes, Steven Spielberg is still producing to make a few extra bucks. But don’t count on Shia LaBeouf running around screaming in this one. Instead, you’ll have Mark Wahlberg (who was in Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain‘) trying to save the day. Hopefully there is a scene of him rapping and dancing.  Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller and Ken Watanabe also star. You can expect a lot of explosions and chaos, but not much else. The film opens up June 27th.  Enjoy.

I could begin this with ‘Hey, you guys!’, or ‘Goonies never say die!’ but that has been done. Seriously, if the joke is that easy, everyone is going to come up with it, and who needs another news piece spouting the same tag line? Turns out the paparazzi pick up more than just bad angled pictures. Director Richard Donner was signing autographs near the cameramen and one of them picked up the scoop that Donner’s next film is going to be a sequel to a favorite movie for millions of people – ‘The Goonies‘!! We’ve all been through the rumors that it was in the works and that a script was being or had been written, just to find out that it was making no real progress.

Film Review: ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’!!

Hi, Bryan Here…

grandbudapesthotel-2

There are so many filmmakers out there that have given us amazing and iconic movies. From  Steven Spielberg to Stanley Kubrick and from John Hughes to Danny Boyle, we have laughed, cried, and felt every perk on the emotion scale while watching movies through the years. However, some of our favorite filmmakers have lost their creative eye and ability to make quality films, while their movies earlier in their career won Oscars and pushed these directors to super stardom, but later in their career, their films have us questioning their talent while their films are met with very negative reviews across the board. It’s truly a sad day when this happens, and unfortunately it happens more often then I’d like to admit.

After 17 weeks, we have finally arrived with a the championship match and a winner for out infamous Director’s bracket. Back 17 weeks ago, we took a couple of days to come up with 64 of the best directors, and put them in a NCAA-style tournament bracket to see who would emerge as the best director of all time. We separated them into four categories, which were: modern filmmakers, dead filmmakers, genre filmmakers, and foreign filmmakers. Some fights ensued over the course of these 17 weeks, but we have all healed, and have picked a winner, which was a 3-2 decision. You can click the link below to see the bracket in its entirety.

Paramount sold the rights to the franchise to Disney today, which includes marketing and distribution deals.  Recently, Disney bought LucasFilm, which means they have ‘Star Wars‘ now, but not ‘Indiana Jones‘.

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

Film Review: ‘Lincoln’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2012

FedMex Here….

Steven Spielberg is one of the most respected directors of our time. Naturally, when it was announced that he would be directing a biographical film of Abraham Lincoln, we were all pretty excited. This excitement was further elevated when we discovered that Daniel Day-Lewis would be cast as Lincoln himself.  To add to all those big names, throw in “you really like me” Sally Field, notoriously cranky Tommy Lee Jones (as Thaddeus  Stevens), and super talented dreamboat Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and I mean, how could this possibly go wrong?

‘E.T.’ Will Return To The Big Screen!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

That’s right, folks.  ‘E.T.’ will be on the big screen again, thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events.  Screening will take place October 3rd at 7:00pm at select theaters across the country.  This marks the 30th anniversary of the film and most likely is geared to promote the new blu-ray coming out as well.  This was one of the first films I saw in the theater and it just blew my mind.  It was one of the first times my Dad and I bonded over a film.  Needless to say it holds a special place in my heart.  Not only will you get a newly remastered version of the film, but also a journey of the making of ‘E.T.’.  And yes, folks, this is this original film, not the version with the extra scenes or the CGI’d walkie-talkie replacements.  Spielberg acknowledged his fuck-up long ago and apologized.  The same can’t be said for Lucas.  I’m super excited about this and hope all of you can make it and take your kids to see this on the big screen.  Official press release below.
