Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas has an ambitious plan for The Lost Boys series: each season will span a decade. Thomas envisions seven seasons for the anthology series, based on director Joel Schumacher‘s 80s classic. Every season of The CW series will take place in a different year and setting, following a new group of vampires.
Below, Rob Thomas discusses The Lost Boys television show.

It’s a little surprising we haven’t heard about a remake of The Lost Boys yet. We’ve seen two direct-to-DVD sequels to the film (both starring Corey Feldman), but Joel Schumacher‘s vampire film is certainly well known enough to make someone see dollar signs in a potential update. Before that inevitable day comes, Vertigo Comics is bringing us a sequel to The Lost Boys that follows the film’s original surviving characters.
Below, learn more about The Lost Boys sequel comic.

Think about Facebook, iPods, iTunes — all things you might use every single day. They all have seeds in the “little program that could,” called Napster. Co-created by Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker in the late 1990s, the file-sharing service/social network was not only ahead of its time technologically and socially, it completely changed how the public consumes media. If it wasn’t for Fanning and Parker, who knows how long it would have taken for corporations to allow you to download music on your computer or rent one of their movies without leaving your house.
All this is at the center of Downloaded, a brand-new documentary by Alex Winter. Winter (seen above with Fanning and Parker) is best known as an actor (Lost Boys, Bill and Ted) but has been directing for some time. With Downloaded, he tackles a massive topic with authority and energy, telling the story of Napster from its earliest moments through its culture peak and long term fallout. It world premieres this week at South by Southwest in Austin and will be released by VH1 Rock Docs. After that, you’ll be able to see it on demand and online.
We spoke to Winter about Downloaded and found out it was a project he’d been developing for long time before it evolved into its current state. He talked about trying to focus such a huge topic, culling together a huge wealth of media and, of course, The Lost Boys and Bill and Ted 3. Read the interview below. Read More »
If this summer’s blockbuster film The Avengers taught us anything, is that there’s power in numbers. Thor or Iron Man are good on their own but, when they’re part of a team, they’re great. That team-up mentality is the focus of the latest art show at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. It’s called The Gang’s All Here and features art based on films, TV and more where a group of people team up for a cause. Which is actually quite a common story device, once you start thinking about it.
The show opens this Friday, November 16 and features some of the best gallery art we’ve seen in a while. For real. Just one example is a piece we’re happy to debut, Laurent Durieux‘s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a stunning tribute to L. Frank Baum‘s work. But then there’s also stuff centering on Attack the Block, The Lost Boys, Hook, Watchmen, Game of Thrones, Alien, Seven Samurai, Monty Python, Super Troopers, Harry Potter, Star Wars and so much more, all of which focus on a group of people teaming up.
After the jump, check out a huge preview gallery of images and the exclusive reveal of Dureaux’s piece. Read More »
Have you ever noticed that the name Michael is said 114 times during the course of The Lost Boys? Well Dan Nixon noticed and created a video compiling them all. Watch it now embedded after the jump.

Okay, I’ve grown to accept that we’ll never get a real sequel to The Lost Boys. The 2008 straight-to-DVD sequel Lost Boys: The Tribe was beyond horrible. Warner Home Video has produced a third film, and this time around it looks like it focuses on the return of the Frog brothers. I’m not saying Lost Boys: The Thirst looks good, but at least it puts Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander back in the spotlight, instead of just assigning them to secondary characters.
The first trailer has been released online, and can be watched after the jump. If anything, this trailer makes me want to revisit the original again. But it doesn’t look entirely horrible, does it?

Let’s throw a wrench into this Lost Boys assembly line, shall we? Filming on the second sequel, Lost Boys: The Thirst, is set to begin in early November (in Capetown, South Africa, no less) with Corey Feldman reprising his role as the moody vampire slayer, Edgar Frog. If you managed to fall into a sewer over the last year, the Crack Fox no doubt introduced you to Lost Boys: The Tribe, the worst vampire film to feature “extreme” skateboard stunts and tribal tatts in history. Death by direct-to-DVD. But wait! Based on the plot of Lost Boys 3, which contains a sparkly nod to Twilight, the next installment sounds even worse…

We’ve posted about works displayed at Los Angeles’ Gallery 1988 in the past. Today we’re featuring new pieces by artist Kirk Demarais, whose movie-family-portraits in colored pencil have become an internet sensation of sorts. Perhaps his most famous work in the series is The Torrance Family from Stanley Kubrick‘s The Shining, a piece guaranteed to bat around the halls of tumblr for years to come. In fact, it’s proven so popular that Demarais is currently offering it as a limited-edition $65 print.
He’s added new works to the series as part of Gallery 1988’s massive, ongoing Crazy 4 Cult: 3D exhibition. (Check out the entire show here.) Yes, that’s The Emerson Family from The Lost Boys above, and it deftly captures all of the humorous, unique resilience of each character in face of a messy ’80s divorce. Also: age-appropriate sulking and curious fashion-dabbling. But where’s Nanook? After the jump we’ve included Demarais’s takes on There Will Be Blood, The Jerk (sold to this guy), and…Billy Mitchell (sans children because he’s Satan’s game-tester). Also, I couldn’t not include a separate work by Michael Alvarez of the lurid spaghetti-and-milk bathtub scene from Harmony Korine‘s Gummo.
