For DC-area moviegoers, Turner Classic Movies has a little treat for you on April 8 (Thursday). TCM is taking its love of great movies to five cities nationwide with the Road to Hollywood tour, a slate of special free screenings building up to the launch of the first-ever TCM Classic Film Festival. The screening at the Avalon of the 1943 classic, The More The Merrier, is the fourth stop on the tour.
The Resident Evil series (along with Fast & Furious) is complete cinematic junk-food for me, but I’ve missed all news surrounding the fourth installment. It seems Resident Evil: Afterlife has wrapped already, and Myspace — who uses Myspace anymore? — debuted a batch of photos from the new film, which brings back Milla Jovovich as Alice and Ali Larter (from “Heroes”) as her smokey sidekick Claire Redfield.
This isn’t exactly big movie news, but it’s certainly related. Not that we need a valid reason to report on Sam Worthington, mind you. The Aussie actor dons the cover of Details this month, and the feature is a must read for any fan. Worthington seems on the cusp of being one of the most dominant action stars in Hollywood, after already headlining Terminator Salvation, Avatar and, next, Clash of the Titans. Christian Bale better watch his back.
A cute and observant video compilation of the actor’s seeming affinity for rain as a dramatic device. Who doesn’t love a wet Cusack?
A fun chart of sci-fi film and television properties applied to the familiar periodic table. I don’t quite understand the meaning of each and every tile, but the chart sure is fun to look at. Kris Staub over at TopatoCo sells it as a print, which would make a nice addition to any fan’s wall. Maybe mine, too.
Even more reason to love Sandra Bullock. In the included video clip, she accepts her Razzie for Worst Actress of 2009 for All About Steve. She also won for Worst Screen Couple (with Bradley Cooper). And remarkably, as we all know, she’s up for an Oscar this evening for her lead role in the The Blind Side. Can you imagine if she were to win tonight and take home awards for best and worst actress of 2009? That would be stunning.
