The Days Of Thunder vs Dick Tracy blockbuster rivalry

Simon Brew Dec 4, 2017

The summer of 1990 was supposed to be a showdown between Dick Tracy and Days Of Thunder. It was a bit of an odd rivalry...

It would be fair to say that the top five movies at the Us box office in 1990 didn’t follow the rule book. In fact, 1990 saw Hollywood’s blockbuster formula falter, to the point that conversations were rife about whether a sea change was coming. Dramtic changes in blockbuster mentality were certainly on the way, as it happened, but not for a decade or so. Yet the seed was planted in 1990 that sure-fire blockbuster hits weren’t always, well, sure-fire blockbuster hits.

New 'Back to the Future' Comic Book Answers Some Burning Questions

  • Movies.com
Answers? Where the Back to the Future franchise is going, we don't need answers. But we're getting them anyway! And they should be fun nonetheless. While fans will likely never see another sequel to the 1985 time-travel classic, there have been new comic book series depicting "untold stories and alternate timelines" and more. Another one will apparently be even more tied to the original trilogy.  According to Bob Gale, who wrote the movies and now works on the comics, the upcoming "Tales from the Time Train" series will continue directly from the final scene of Back to the Future Part III and show where Doc Brown and his family went to next, as well as some of where they'd been. From an interview with The Hollywood...

Five Movie Stunts Nearly as Deadly as They Looked

Given the spectacular scenes shown in movies, it should come as no surprise to learn that movie stunts can be rather dangerous to the people performing them.

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Star Wars’ entered our galaxy

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Star Wars’ entered our galaxy
39 years ago today, audiences were first taken to the galaxy far, far away that would deeply embed itself in popular culture and ignite the imaginations of sci-fi fans for generations to come. Star Wars opened in theaters on May 25, 1977, the Wednesday before Memorial Day that year. (Yep, next year we’ll be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars.) The film that would launch one of the biggest cultural phenomenons of all time started small, opening in fewer than 40 theaters. But when the movie started to break records in its small release, 20th Century Fox accelerated its release plans. Soon audiences across the world were captivated by the Millennium Falcon and binary sunsets and lightsaber duels. Six years to the day after the release of the first film, Return of the Jedi opened in theaters. The Empire Strikes Back had hit theaters in May 1980, when Star Wars was a summer and not a Christmas event.

Rocky IV: rare behind the scenes publicity pictures

Sylvester Stallone's Rocky IV is a 1980s classic - here are some rare stills from the making of the movie...

Clearly one of the finest movies of the 1980s, Rocky IV is a firm favourite in these parts. In an hour and a half, it deals with the politics of the Cold War, brings America and Russia together, gives Dolph Lundgren the role of a lifetime, and fits in a good half hour of flashbacks and montages for your money.

Rocky IV was a huge hit back in 1985, and around the time, MGM/UA released a collection of promotional behind the scenes images from the film. Which we’ve got our hands on here.

Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of 'Home Alone' With a Pizza from Little Nero's

  • Movies.com
What does Home Alone have in common with Back to the Future? Aside from it being released the same year as Back to the Future Part III, not a whole lot, but the classic 1990 family comedy is celebrating its latest big anniversary in a way similar to that of the time-travel blockbuster. No, there's no Home Alone day where we honor the movie based around the exact day Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) was forgotten by his parents. However, there is similarly a tribute to a fictional product, which you can now own for real. Where the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future has brought us real hoverboards, self-lacing Nike sneakers and Pepsi Perfect, the 25th anniversary of Home Alone brings us Little Nero's Pizza. That'd be the blatant Little Caesars...
