@readyplayerone writer @ernestcline and producer @dan_farah hopped in Ernie's custom DeLorean, pushed the pedal to 88 mph, and headed back to the past to visit BACK TO THE FUTURE’s City Hall and Lyon Estates. And when film students working on a project on the lot saw the sweet ride materialize in Town Square, they flocked over en masse to see Ernie’s fabled road-ready time machine. That's the Power of Love—for BACK TO THE FUTURE and READY PLAYER ONE! @back_to_the_future_trilogy #BTTF #RobertZemeckis #BobGale #StevenSpielberg @readyplayerone @unistudios @warnerbrosentertainment

Perhaps not the most immediately “toyetic” of DreamWorks Pictures’ films, CAST AWAY, starring Tom Hanks and directed by Robert Zemeckis, has found its way against the odds to memorialization in mini plastic POP! cuteness in these two @originalfunko figs of Hanks’ resourceful Chuck Noland. Of course Chuck would be incomplete without his co-star Wilson, a part of the wide release figure on the left, while the @target exclusive figure on the right sees Chuck skewering what’s for (non-kosher) dinner. #CastAway #TomHanks #Wilson #FunkoPOP #RobertZemeckis #Target

What, us heartbroken yet grateful for decades of laughter and ribbing of our films? Mad Magazine is folding, and not just its always delightfully clever back cover, after nearly 70 years in print. It's the end of an era, the end of a wave of purely American satire and parody.

Actress Demi Moore will play Linda in BRAVE NEW WORLD, John's (Alden Ehrenreich) brash, hard-living mother. In the series, based on Aldous Huxley's classic novel, Bernard Marx (Harry Lloyd) and Lenina Crowe (Jessica Brown Findlay) break free of New London, an oppressive society, by embarking on a vacation to the Savage Lands, only to find themselves caught in the chaos of rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by Linda's son, known as John the Savage, who in turn escapes the Savage Lands and travels back to New London with the couple.
AMBLIN TV AND USA’S ‘BRAVE NEW WORLD’ ROUNDS OUT SERIES REGULARS Kylie Bunbury (When They See Us), Hannah John-Kamen (Ready Player One), Sen Mitsuji (Origin), Joseph Morgan (The Originals) and Nina Sosanya (Killing Eve) have joined Brave New World, the series based on the the foundational Aldous Huxley science-fiction novel. They join previously announced series regulars Alden Ehrenreich, Jessica Brown Findlay and Harry Lloyd in the series produced by UCP and Amblin Television. Based on Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking novel, Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself. As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx (Harry Lloyd (The Theory of Everything)) and Lenina Crowne (Jessica Brown Findlay (Black Mirror)) have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story)), who escapes with them back to New London. John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions. The three become entwined in a fraught relationship that awakens them to the dangers of their own conditioning. #BraveNewWorld #AmblinTelevision

"You wanna see something really scary?" Steven Spielberg is back behind the keyboard as writer for a new "super scary" series he's penning for former DreamWorks partner Jeffrey Katzenberg's digital startup Quibi. Katzenberg revealed the collaboration at the Banff World Media Festival in Canada (as reported by @variety), teasing that "Steven Spielberg came in, and said, ‘I have a super scary story I want to do.' He’s writing it himself. He hasn’t [written a screenplay since 2001's A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE] so getting him to write something is fantastic.” Quibi is developing short, "quick bite" storytelling content for their coming platform, and what better way to kick things off than with a dozen episodes (or thereabouts) that create one larger tale told to us by Steven Spielberg? For fans of more jittery constitutions, your nerves will be put to the test doubly, as Spielberg hopes Quibi will only make the short series available for viewing after midnight, with episodes to disappear by the dawn, followed again by the next story installment when the clock strikes subsequent witching hours. That's a lot of people up late gnawing nervously on their fingernails in dread and excitement. Naturally your trusty Amblin correspondent will keep fans up to date as details progress. Until then, happy nightmares dreaming about what Mr. Spielberg might have in store for everyone!
The new @meninblack are now adorable @originalfunko POP! figures, ready to protect your collection from the scum of the toy universe.

BLACK MIRROR actress Jessica Brown Findlay joins Amblin Television and USA's BRAVE NEW WORLD. Based on Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking and classic novel, BRAVE NEW WORLD imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself. As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage, who escapes with them back to New London. John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions. The three become entwined in a fraught relationship that awakens them to the dangers of their own conditioning. From Universal Content Productions (UCP), in association with Amblin Television, the series was adapted for television by David Wiener (Homecoming, The Killing, Flesh and Bone,), with Grant Morrison (SYFY’s Happy!) and Brian Taylor (Happy!, Crank). Wiener and Morrison along with Darryl Frank (The Americans) and Justin Falvey (The Americans), co-presidents of Amblin Television, will executive produce. Wiener will also serve as series showrunner. Owen Harris (Black Mirror: San Junipero) will direct the first episode and executive produce the series. Jessica Brown Findlay will play Lenina Crowne, a Beta Plus Hatchery worker, who has begun to question her position within the strict social strata of the New World. Jessica Brown Findlay is a versatile and critically-acclaimed actress. Brown Findlay can currently be seen starring in Harlots opposite Samantha Morton. She is well known for her portrayal of Lady Sybil in the award-winning international hit series Downton Abbey – for which she and the cast won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 2013 SAG Awards.

Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story announced today that acclaimed conductor Gustavo Dudamel will be guiding the baton for the film’s recording of Leonard Bernstein’s iconic score. Also part of the music team are Oscar®-nominated composer and conductor David Newman (Anastasia) who will be arranging the Bernstein score for the new adaptation; Tony Award®-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Broadway’s Fun Home and Thoroughly Modern Millie), who will be working with the cast on vocals; and Grammy®-nominated music supervisor Matt Sullivan (Beauty and the Beast, Chicago), who will oversee the music for the film. “Since the moment West Side Story hit Broadway in 1957, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim’s iconic music has helped define America’s musical identity,” said Spielberg. “To find a team with the experience and talent to honor the original work – while bringing a fresh vision to our new adaptation – was a tall order. I’m confident that this incredible group will do just that, and I am privileged and grateful to have them as partners on this journey.” – Steven Spielberg, Director Venezuelan-born Dudamel is one of the most celebrated and recognized musicians in the world, and can count among his many achievements a Grammy Award, the prestigious Glenn Gould Protégé Prize, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Leonard Bernstein Lifetime Achievement Award for the Elevation of Music in Society, from the Longy School. He also serves as the music director of the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where As Music and Artistic Director he recently oversaw their centennial celebration. Says Dudamel: “When asked to collaborate with the greatest film director of our time, on one of the greatest musicals ever written and conduct a score composed by one of your heroes, first you catch your breath and ask yourself, ‘Is this really happening?’ After you realize this is true, you humbly, yet very quickly, say, ‘Yes, thank you.’ “Although I am only at the very beginning, I view this adaptation of West Side Story, as one of the highlights of my career...”
A very happy birthday to Goldie Hawn, seen here on location in Texas shooting Steven Spielberg's feature debut, THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS, in 1973. We hope you have a wonderful day of celebration, Goldie!
