‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’ TV Series Will Star Justin Timberlake as ‘Gong Show’ Host and Self-Confessed CIA Assassin Chuck Barris

Chuck Barris was the host of The Gong Show and creator of The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game. He was also an assassin for the CIA. Okay, that’s more than likely not true – but Barris himself made those claims in his autobiography Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. The CIA denied Barris was an agent – but that’s exactly what they would say, isn’t it? Of course, Barris himself also admitted he made the whole thing up. No matter – it was a good story, and it was turned into a twisted little film ...

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ Animated Series in the Works, Says Robert Rodriguez

For people who were amped about the indie film boom of the 1990s, From Dusk Till Dawn represented an exciting new development in the careers of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Years before the failed 2007 experiment that was Grindhouse, the two indie wunderkinds teamed up to make a unique B-movie that shifted from a straightforward crime thriller into an all-out vampire horror film. Now, 25 years later, Rodriguez says that a From Dusk Till Dawn animated series is in development. Read hi...

The Midnight Sky Review – Rambling Towards Little

The Midnight Sky is like one of the best road trips you’ve ever taken, but when you get where you’re headed it turns out the place never existed. As much as that leaves you deflated, and isn’t a road trip you’re going on again, it was still a good trip. George Clooney (who stars and directs) takes us on a strange journey through the end of mankind based on the book Good Morning, Midnight. As things open, Augustine (Clooney) is watching helicopters load up with those abandoning an arctic research...

20 Years Ago, ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ Transformed George Clooney Into the Actor We Know Today

George Clooney has been the protean ideal of a movie star for so long that it’s hard to recall a time when his presence on the big screen was more typified by playing the Caped Crusader in a comically terrible film. Even now that box office results have been decimated by the pandemic, there are few actors who perfectly embody the notion of what it is to be an old-fashioned movie star like Clooney. His always-at-100 smile, his dapper style, and a public look that often recalls the masculinity o...

‘The Midnight Sky’ Featurette: George Clooney Hates the Cold

George Clooney hates cold. Probably because snow is cold, and wet, and gets everywhere. But he would sacrifice discomfort, even embrace it, for cinema.

The Perfect Storm is a film about fishing, starring George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and quite a few other people you know. At one point Wahlberg is bitten by a shark. A bit later John C Reilly is hooked and dragged into the sea. And then the bad weather arrives.
