If you're a fan of the classic horror film Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you've got to watch this rare 1974 footage from the set of the film featuring some bloopers. I've gotta say, it's actually pretty awkward.
There's not a lot of funny stuff here. It's mostly just the actors messing up their lines, but it's interesting to see some raw footage of this before the music and sound effects were added to it to actually make it scary because there's nothing scary about this... it's just weird. It also gives us a real sense of just how low-budget this iconic horror film was. Check it out!
I know Christmas is already passed, but I just came across this Batman fan art that I had to share with you. It basically gives us a hilarious visualization of what the classic Batman Jingle Bells Christmas song would look like. It has a smelly Batman replacing the wheel that he lost, Robin looking confused about laying an egg, and the Joker getting away. The art was done by Mauricio Abril, and here's The Joker singing the song in Batman: The Animated Series!
The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for their upcoming animated adventure film Leap! The movie features the voices of Elle Fanning and Dane DeHaan as they attempt to live out their dreams. Fanning's character want to be a ballerina, and DeHaan's character is an aspiring inventor who wants to fly.
Unfortunately, the movie doesn't look very good, but it's something that kids would probably enjoy if any parents out there end up taking them to see it. It looks like something that should have gone straight to DVD/VOD.
Paris, 1884. An orphaned girl arrives in Paris from Brittany. Félicie Milliner is 11 and has no money but one big, passionate dream: to become a dancer. With nothing left to lose, Félicie takes a big risk: she ‘borrows’ a spoiled brats identity and enters the Opera Ballet School. But how long can she be someone else? Mentored by the tough and mysterious cleaner, Odette , Félicie learns that talent is not enough – it takes hard work to be better than her ruthless, conniving fellow students. That and friendship. Felicie’s inventive, exhausting and charismatic best friend Victor also has a dream: becoming a famous inventor. Together, they both encourage each other to reach for the stars.
Ever since Kevin Costner starred in the History Channel's Hatfields & McCoys, he saw a major boost in his career. It's been great to see him in the movies again, but one thing I'd love to see him get back into is directing. The last film he directed was Open Range, and that was 13 years ago. Before that, he directed The Postman and won an Acadamy Award for his directing work on Dances With Wolves in 1991.
It looks like we might actually get to see him direct again as he's been working on an ambitious 10 hour long western! This is a story that could be told over multiple films or a TV series. He told Variety:
"I’ve been working on it. It’s about 10 hours long, how about that? Maybe I’ll make three features out of it. There’s a fourth one, too, so it’s truly a saga. I could do TV, or I could also make it like every six months, have a big western that’s tied together like [Claude Berri’s 1986 film] Jean de Florette and [1987 film] Manon of the Spring. I think those are fun to watch."
I would love to see this happen! I'd like to think that Costner would give us something incredible and epic. One thing is for sure, Costner does intend to direct more. In a separate interview with Vulture, the filmmaker said:
"I have another Western I’ve co-written with some people, and I would like to play out the second half of my career directing more. I’ve constantly given the movies I’ve found to directors who I thought could do it better, but there are a lot of voices in my ear from my family saying, ‘You need to direct the movies you fall in love with.’ So I think I will."
Good. Costner has the talent and ability to create and tell stories that audiences will love. As a longtime fan of the western genre, I really hope that he gets to make these films sooner rather than later.

The first trailer for Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast was full of wonderful visuals that got fans of the classic animated series really excited about the film. One thing they still haven't shared with us is what the actors sound like when they sing the classic songs.
Well, today we have a brief recording of Emma Watson as Belle singing the song “Something There.” The recording comes from a movie Belle doll at Toys ‘R Us, and it was recorded and posted online by one of the film's producers, Jack Morrissey.
Listen to the audio clip below and let us know what you think. She definitely doesn't have the singing chops as the original Belle, who was voiced by Paige O'Hara, but it'll have to do. Regardless, I still think this will be a great movie that will explode at the box office.
Hopefully, Disney releases a trailer soon that gives us more of a taste of what the music in the film will be like with all of the actors singing. The movie also stars Luke Evans as Gaston, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Sir Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Kevin Kline as Maurice, and Josh Gad as Le Fou.
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17, 2017.
It's always interesting to see how celebrities act when they're not playing their typical roles. It's even more interesting when you see an actor who is every bit the person they play onscreen! Granted, Larry David plays himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and if you watched Seinfeld you could have guessed the similarities between the two had to come from someone truly unique. Still, I find it hard to believe that David is really THAT neurotic and THAT over the top!
While this interview isn't exactly off-camera, it is a lot more of a candid experience than you'll see onscreen! To be fair, I'm not sure who wouldn't go "Larry David" on this guy because he really is that annoying. Check out the ridiculous encounter between Larry and an annoying fan below.
Ryan Gosling will reteam with La La Land director Damien Chazelle for a biopic he's directing based on the life of Neil Armstrong. The film will be called First Man, and the script comes from Spotlight scribe Josh Singer.
The movie is based on the biography by James Hansen called First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong. It tells the story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, and it focuses on Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.
According to Variety, the film will be a visceral, first-person account, that "will explore the sacrifices and the cost — on Armstrong and on America — of one of the most dangerous space missions in history."
Gosling is a very talented actor who seems like a solid choice to play Armstrong. The film was originally supposed to be directed by Clint Eastwood at Warner Bros. It eventually ended up at Universal Pictures where Chazelle jumped on board. He's a great director who made his mark with the film Whiplash, and it's cool to see his career really taking off. I'm looking forward to seeing what he ends up doing with this Neil Armstrong film.
Here's the full description of the book:
“The Eagle has landed.”
When Apollo 11 touched down on the moon’s surface in 1969, the first man on the moon became a legend. In First Man, Hansen explores the life of Neil Armstrong. Based on over fifty hours of interviews with the intensely private Armstrong, who also gave Hansen exclusive access to private documents and family sources, this “magnificent panorama of the second half of the American twentieth century” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) is an unparalleled biography of an American icon.
Upon his return to earth, Armstrong was honored and celebrated for his monumental achievement. He was also—as James R. Hansen reveals in this fascinating and important biography—misunderstood. Armstrong’s accomplishments as engineer, test pilot, and astronaut have long been a matter of record, but Hansen’s unprecedented access to private documents and unpublished sources and his interviews with more than 125 subjects (including more than fifty hours with Armstrong himself) yield this first in-depth analysis of an elusive American celebrity still renowned the world over.
In a riveting narrative filled with revelations, Hansen vividly recreates Armstrong’s career in flying, from his seventy-eight combat missions as a naval aviator flying over North Korea to his formative transatmospheric flights in the rocket-powered X-15 to his piloting Gemini VIII to the first-ever docking in space. These milestones made it seem, as Armstrong’s mother Viola memorably put it, “as if from the very moment he was born—farther back still—that our son was somehow destined for the Apollo 11 mission.”
For a pilot who cared more about flying to the Moon than he did about walking on it, Hansen asserts, Armstrong’s storied vocation exacted a dear personal toll, paid in kind by his wife and children. For the forty-five years since the Moon landing, rumors have swirled around Armstrong concerning his dreams of space travel, his religious beliefs, and his private life.
In a penetrating exploration of American hero worship, Hansen addresses the complex legacy of the First Man, as an astronaut and as an individual. In First Man, the personal, technological, epic, and iconic blend to form the portrait of a great but reluctant hero who will forever be known as history’s most famous space traveler.
