Anyone who lived through the 1960s might remember a little band called The Wonders. Formerly known as The Oneders, the group from Erie, Pennsylvania skyrocketed to fame when their song “That Thing You Do!” became an instant hit. However, their fame was short-lived, and The Wonders became nothing more than a one-hit wonder.
If you don’t remember this band from decades ago, don’t worry, because they were a fictional band. So while you may not be losing your memory, this means that you didn’t see the movie That Thing You Do! from 1996. Directed by Tom Hanks, the film chronicles the formation, rise and fall of a 1960s rock band that quickly becomes a nation-wide sensation and fades away just as quickly. Now, 21 years later, The Wonders have reunited for a little performance of their hit song.

While we were at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this month, we learned quite a bit about the forthcoming sixth season of The Walking Dead premiering in October (check out our full panel recap right here). And the lengthy trailer for the new season also teased plenty of confrontation, zombie action, and even a few new characters in Alexandria.
Now some new photos from the sixth season of The Walking Dead have surfaced, giving us another look at a new character played by Ethan Embry (who can be seen in the aforementioned trailer), as well as previously unseen characters played by Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) and Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton). See the new Walking Dead season six photos, and find out more about the new characters after the jump! Read More »
Cheap Thrills is one of my favorite movies of 2013. It’s a genre fan’s paradise: one messed-up idea, explored to the limit of its potential, with some supremely squirm-inducing moments. It is also a damn good movie, period — a killer directorial debut from E.L. Katz, with good performances all around, and work from Pat Healy and David Koechner that you won’t forget. If you’ve ever sensed that Koechner has a weird mean streak running through his comedy, this is the movie for you, because he taps into that and turns it into a river that propels this movie along.
Healy and Ethan Embry play a couple of guys, both facing hard times, who reconnect at a bar. Then a couple at the bar, played by Koechner and Sara Paxton (who co-starred with Healy in The Innkeepers) offers them a potential economic windfall. All the guys have to do to win some big bucks is follow through on the dares proposed by the couple. And then things get weird.

Cheap Thrills is a great movie not just for the fact that it is freaky and unsettling in a very realistic way, but because it will make you look at the film’s four major actors in a new light. Ethan Embry and Pat Healy play two guys who need cash, and David Koechner and Sara Paxton play a rich couple with money to burn.
The four people collide at a bar, and the rich couple is soon paying their two new “friends” to engage in a bit of anti-social behavior. It begins in a relatively innocent manner, but things quickly get crazy. Really, crazy, and very bloody. This first international trailer will give you a creepy, messy idea of what the movie has in store, without giving too much away. Watch it below.

I think it’s fair to say that we at /Film have been pretty thorough in our coverage of Sam Raimi’s Wizard of Oz prequel Oz: The Great and Powerful, reporting on every last Bruce Campbell cameo and black-and-white prologue. But in our excitement over that film, we’ve apparently overlooked another, unrelated project that also takes inspiration from L. Frank Baum‘s much-loved fantasy world.
Titled Dorothy and the Witches of Oz, Leigh Scott‘s low-budget sorta-sequel stars Paulie Rojas as successful NYC-based children’s author Dorothy Gale, who learns that her Oz adventures weren’t imagined, but real. Christopher Lloyd, Sean Astin, Ethan Embry, and Billy Boyd also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.
