We love Star Trek. And Star Trek is clearly the number one reason to get a CBS All Access account, especially with the 60-day free promotion the streamer has going on at the moment. But what else does CBS’s online hub have, besides Picard and other Treks, and, like, NCIS spin-offs? We did some digging for you.Read more...

Alternate ‘Zombieland’ Script Pages Feature Cameos Kevin Bacon and Jean-Claude Van Damme Regretted Passing Up

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are revealing more of the alternate script pages for Zombieland that would have given the big cameo made famous by Bill Murray to a number of other movie stars. Patrick Swayze was in the very first draft of the movie, but he never got offered the part since he was diagnosed with cancer around the time the movie would have started production. Then Sylvester Stallone had to pass due to scheduling, and Mark Hamill’s peo...

10 Apocalypse Movies to Watch With Happy (or at Least Not Totally Depressing) Endings

Current events notwithstanding, Hollywood rather adores imagining the apocalypse on the big screen. Many doomsday movies end with total destruction; that rogue planet is just gonna go ahead and vaporize Earth, or those zombies are just gonna take over forever.

Read the Alternate ‘Zombieland’ Cameo Scene That Would Have Featured Joe Pesci

So far we’ve gotten to read several of the alternate cameos that were pitched for Zombieland before Bill Murray came aboard the project and gave us one of the best cameos in movie history. There was Patrick Swayze in the very first draft of the movie, which unfortunately never got offered to the actor before he was diagnosed with cancer. Then Sylvester Stallone had to pass due to scheduling, and Mark Hamill’s people just flat out said no (read those pages here). Now we’ve come to one of the Goo...

Read the ‘Zombieland’ Cameo Scenes Written for Sylvester Stallone and Mark Hamill

We’re only on the second week of self-quarantine in our efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus across the United States, but some of us are desperate for more content. So it only seems appropriate that we get some of it from the writers of Zombieland, the horror comedy that could give us insight into our potential future as this pandemic continues. As we highlighted before the weekend began, Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had to write several versions of what became the famo...

‘Zombieland’ Writers Reveal the Original Cameo Scene Written for Patrick Swayze

Bill Murray‘s appearance as himself in Zombieland is one of the greatest cameos of all time. It’s so perfectly Bill Murray, and the way it ends is truly worthy of a chef’s kiss. However, before the Ghostbusters star was confirmed to make the cameo, there were several other versions that were considered. In fact, the original draft had Patrick Swayze making the big cameo with a ton of references to his greatest movies from the 1980s, and some serious shade thrown at one of the favorites.  Zomb...

The 10 Funniest Performers of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Choosing the top ten funniest performers of the 2010s was not easy. If there’s one thing to know about comedy, it’s that it is subjective. What’s funny to one person may not be funny to someone else. One thing I took into account while making this list is how reliable these performers were over the past decade. Did they have stand-out moments in one film or in multiple films over the years? How should a late bloomer be evaluated? If someo...

Six Recent Horror Movies That Highlight the Best in Humanity

Horror movies are supposed to be horrible. Their job is to show us situations that elicit fear and revulsion. Thus, they tend to highlight the worst in humanity, not the best. Why, then, would anyone want to watch horror movies? Many people don’t. My partner refuses to, because they just make her too tense. I, on the other hand, love a good one; I often find them beautiful. When the vampire descends on his victims in the classic Nosferatu (1922), the scenes inspire awe in me—that is, a feeling...
