Daniel Day-Lewis Channeled Clint Eastwood At Britannia Awards To Talk To Empty Chair

Filed under: Silly!Barack ObamaAwardzSteven Spielberg

Clint Eastwood's RNC chair act has been spoofed by so many people, it's not even funny anymore — unless one of Hollywood's most serious actor's decides to do it.

Daniel Day-Lewis, a two-time Academy Award winner who only commits to a few movies a decade, pretended President Barack Obama was sitting next to him while receiving the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film at the 2012 Britannia Awards in El Lay on Wednesday night.

After Steven Spielberg presented him with a statue, the Lincoln star bowed toward an empty chair next to the podium and joked:

We HEARD that!

On Saturday, Amber Heard attended the LACMA Art + Film Gala honoring Stanley Kubrick and Ed Ruscha in El Lay, and she was looking lavishly adorned!!

The star came dressed in head-to-toe Gucci, but what caught our eyes the most, was her golden decorated neckline.

With her red lips, beautiful locks and ginormous radiating collar, Miz Heard could've easily passed for a beautiful Egyptian goddess!

U like?!?

Nicole Kidman Admits Eyes Wide Shut Director 'Had To Coax' Her Into Sex Scenes With Tom Cruise

Filed under: Tom CruiseNicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman may have been married to Tom Cruise while filming Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, but that didn't make the graphic sex scenes any easier.

In fact, the actress admits that the director had to "coax" her into getting it on in front of the camera with her own husband!

Was the erotic movie the beginning of the end for her marriage to Scientology's golden boy?

According to her, no. Addressing that question, she clarified:

'Here's Johnny…'s Dad'?! Is A Shining Prequel In The Works?

Jack Nicholson Shining Prequel Warner Bros Stephen King FIlm Flickers

For realzies?

Warner Bros unofficially announced they're developing a prequel to The Shining!!

That idea is more cray than Jack Nicholson busting through our bathroom door with an axe!!

First Psycho got a prequel TV series, then it was Silence of the Lambs' turn, and now Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece might enjoy be subjected to the same treatment?

Prequels and sequels are one rung further up the ladder than remakes but the trend is disconcerting!

It's obviously a bit too early to talk plot but Stephen King's novel contains tons of allusions to previous murders and mayhem within the horrifically haunted Overlook Motel. We imagine there are tons of different directions they could turn!

Tread lightly, WB. The Shining is an all time classic!

Oh Snap! Did Apple Copy Space Odyssey?

Filed under: Film FlickersTech Talk

It seems like Samsung was just waiting for Apple to claim they copied the iPad with their own version of the tablet.

After accused of being a copycat, they unveiled their secret weapon to combat Apple's patent claims — Stanley Kubrick.

In Samsung's opposition papers, they bring to attention the personal computer tablet used in Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey:

10 Things Stephen King Hates About You Has To Say About The New Stand

stephen king on the stand

Earlier this week, we learned that a new version of Stephen King's The Stand is in the works.

Now, King has opened up with his thoughts about the upcoming adaptation of his classic novel.

Here are the top ten things he had to say about it to Entertainment Weekly:

1. No one will be able to top Gary Sinise, who played Stu Redman in the original ABC miniseries. He was perfect. When he says “You don’t know nothing” to the soldiers who are putting him under mandatory quarantine, you believe his contempt completely. My runner-up pick would be Jake Gyllenhaal.
2. I didn’t know anything about the remake until I read about it on the Internet.
3. You absolutely can’t make it as a two-hour movie. If it was a trilogy of films…maybe.
4. Molly Ringwald won’t be playing Fran Goldsmith this time.
5. Rutger Hauer is a little too old to play the Walkin’ Dude, and that’s too bad.
6. People who’ve seen Kubrick’s The Shining dislike the miniseries I wrote (and my amigo Mick Garris directed) even if they haven’t seen it. That’s always annoyed me. But the wheel of karma turns! This time people will probably say, “The miniseries was lots better.” BUT…
7. …historically speaking, movie studios blow the budget on things like this, so maybe it’ll be fun to look at. The dough certainly isn’t going to me, although if it is a trilogy, and if it makes a lot of money, I might be able to buy a chicken dinner at Popeye’s. Great slaw!
8. Molly Ringwald will probably not play the Trashcan Man, either, but Billy Bob Thornton would be cool. Billy Bob’s always cool.
9. They need to write in a lot of heavy-metal for the soundtrack.
10. M-O-O-N, that spells “you probably won’t see this anytime soon.” And when you do, Woody Allen won’t be directing it. Or Molly Ringwald.

Thoughts???
