If you can’t decide what to watch this weekend, ScreenCrush’s Staff Picks are here to help. They’re like the recommendations at an old video store, except you don’t have to put on pants or go outside to get them. Here are four things to watch this weekend:
Before he went by his real name, Dwayne Johnson, he went by The Rock. Everyone knows that. But did you know that before he was The Rock, Johnson had two other wrestling names? In his earliest days, he was called “Flex Kavana,” and when he later debuted in the WWE, he went by “Rocky Maivia,” combining the names of his wrestler dad (Rocky Johnson) and grandfather (Peter Maivia). A little while later, Johnson adopted a bad guy persona and began referring to himself in third person as simply “The Rock.” And thus a legend was born, and thus that’s just one of the facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
The calendar may have four seasons, but Hollywood’s calendar only really has two at this point: summer and awards, and summer seems to last longer and longer ever year. Though the start of May has long been the unofficial kickoff of the S.M.S., 2017 has already seen a King Kong movie, a ghost in a shell, and the fate of Fast & Furious franchise. The change from April to May is something of a formality in 2017. Once the Oscars are over, the summer begins.
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
The full list of nominees for the 2017 Academy Awards are out, and while there’s plenty to celebrate about this year’s batch of Oscars contenders, there are also plenty of surprises. And some of those surprises are of the not-so-good kind that involved leaving out our favorite movies or filmmakers of 2016. Below, the staff of ScreenCrush picked out the biggest Oscar snubs of 2017, along with a few of the most pleasant shockers from this year’s list of nominees. The winners of all the awards will be announced on Sunday February 26 at the 89th Academy Awards.
It can get pretty overwhelming trying to pick something to watch, what with the hundreds (thousands?) of choices at your fingertips. That’s where our new series, On Demand With ScreenCrush, comes in. Every two weeks, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Matt Singer joins you to recommend three handpicked new titles you can watch at home right now from Movies on Demand. These are big new releases you won’t find streaming on Netflix, and the choices run the gamut from indie favorites, to major blockbusters, to insightful documentaries, and everything in between — all available with your remote.
The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer will make its big-screen debut next month in theaters with Captain America: Civil War. But if you’ve already gone through your copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens DVD and Blu-ray this week, and you can’t wait a month for you next Star Wars fix, we’ve got good news for you...
Alan Rickman, the tremendously talented British actor behind such iconic roles as Hans Gruber in Die Hard and Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films, has died at the age of 69 following a bout with cancer.
After three straight years of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting, the Golden Globes invited previous three-time host Ricky Gervais (2010-2012) to return for the 2016 awards show. Said Gervais back on January 1, “Because I can see the future, I’d like to apologise [sic] now for the things I said at next week’s Golden Globes. I was drunk & didn’t give a f---.” So, did Gervais wind up having anything to apologize for this year? If you missed it, you can watch his 2016 Golden Globes monologue above and decide for yourself.
Whether it’s Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead or The Hunger Games, you’ve surely seen one of the Bad Lip Reading videos on YouTube. They take a movie or TV show (or footage from football games) and re-record the dialogue with hilarious results. Today they’ve finally set their sights on the original Star Wars trilogy and they’ve brought along some famous friends for the ride.
When you’re out promoting a movie, you’re often asked to do a lot of things, most of them pretty silly. With the amount of press the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was being asked to do, there were asked to do a lot of silly things, none perhaps as silly as going on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and singing a medley of Star Wars music a cappella. But the entire cast — including Harrison Ford! — actually commits, and it actually turns out to pretty fun.
Home Alone was released in theaters on November 16, 1990. It was the #1 movie at the box office for an incredible 12 straight weeks. It stayed in the Top 10 until April. It played in theaters for nine months and earned over $477 million making it the highest grossing live-action comedy of all-time. (At least until The Hangover Part 2 came along). This is just one of the Home Alone facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
