Peter Fonda’s Five Must-Watch Performances

Peter Fonda’s Five Must-Watch Performances
At 79 years old, inimitable Hollywood icon Peter Fonda passed away this week, leaving behind a legacy of iconic work. He is survived by his older sister, actress Jane Fonda, and his daughter, actress Bridget Fonda. In tribute to his career, here are five Fonda performances to seek out:

The Wild Angels” (1966)

Cult hero Roger Corman’s 1966 biker outlaw film put Peter Fonda on the map as one of the faces of the New Hollywood, and forever memorialized the actor as a Harley-Davidson icon. The film that Leonard Maltin once called “Ok after 24 beers” stars Fonda as Heavenly Blues, the leader of a hard-partying San Pedro motorcycle gang, opposite Bruce Dern, Nancy Sinatra, and Diane Ladd. Fonda went on to co-star with Dern in Corman’s 1967 psychedelic film “The Trip.”

Easy Rider” (1969)

Dennis Hopper’s wild road movie arrived in Hollywood like a brick through a windshield, shattering conventions and inspiring generations of filmmakers to come.

‘Easy Rider’ star and 2-time Oscar nominee Peter Fonda dead at age 79

‘Easy Rider’ star and 2-time Oscar nominee Peter Fonda dead at age 79
Peter Fonda, younger brother of two-time Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda, son of actor Henry Fonda and father of actress Bridget Fonda, is dead at age 79 on Friday after losing his fight with lung cancer. He would introduce Hollywood to the counter-culture of the ’60s with his take on a biker film, 1969’s “Easy Rider.” The influential film made with pal, co-star, co-writer and director Dennis Hopper helped make Hollywood atuned to what was happening during the decade of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’roll while kick-starting the New Hollywood movement of the late ’60s and ’70s.

Fonda was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for “Easy Rider” along with Hopper and Terry Southern. Meanwhile, Jack Nicholson found his breakout role and was nominated for a supporting actor Oscar as an Aclu lawyer, who wears a football helmet as he decides to travel with Fonda and Hopper’s biker characters.

Cold Case Hammarskjöld (Mads Brügger)

In 1961, Secretary-General of the United Nations Dag Hammarskjöld was killed in a plane crash in Africa under mysterious circumstances. Beginning as an investigation into his still-unsolved death, the trail that Mads Brügger follows in Cold Case Hammarskjöld is one that expands to implicate some of the world’s most powerful governments in unfathomably heinous crimes. Without revealing the specifics of the jaw-dropping revelations in this thoroughly engrossing documentary, if there’s any justice, what is brought to light will cause global attention and a demand for some kind of retribution. – Jordan R.

Edgar Wright's Upcoming Psychological Thriller Last Night In Soho Gets a Release Date!

Edgar Wright fans are excited to see what he’s cooking up for his next film Last Night in Soho. We don’t really know much about the film, all we really do know is that it’s been described as a psychological horror-thriller and it’s set in London’s Soho district. The film will also take place in the 1960s and modern day.

The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) who will play a character in the 1960s set part of the film and then there’s Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, who will star in the modern day scenes as a fashion student. We don’t know how these characters are connected or what the reason is behind the story being set in two different time periods.

When previously talking about the film, Edgar Wright described the film as being in the vein of Donald Sutherland’s 1973 film Don’t Look Now,

Edgar Wright's Last Night in Soho Gets Fall 2020 Release Date

Edgar Wright's Last Night in Soho Gets Fall 2020 Release Date
Edgar Wright's follow-up to Baby Driver will be here in just over a year. Focus Features has announced they will release the filmmaker's latest Last Night in Soho on Friday, September 25, 2020, domestically. Universal Pictures International is handling the overseas release and we don't, as of right now, have specific dates for the international rollout. Either way, those of us in the States have this to look forward to in the Fall of next year.

Little has been revealed about the movie so far. We know it will be something of a departure for Edgar Wright, as it's not going to be a comedy. Instead, it's been described as a thriller. Wright, in the early stages ahead of filming, used Nicolas Roeg's 1973 thriller Don't Look Now and Roman Polanski's 1965 feature Repulsion as touchstones. As of this writing, there is no official plot synopsis or anything of the like.

Once Upon a Time in Rome

A significant subplot of Quentin Tarantino's ninth feature, Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood, involves the offer of work to fading movie stars from the Italian film business, where a few got lucky and reinvigorated their careers and others merely paid the rent or tarnished their reputations, if any.This notion is certainly not one of Q.T.'s notorious counter-historical plot turns: Italy had been offering opportunities to Hollywood and European flotsam since the fifties.In the era of Il Boom, the post-war economic miracle, filmmakers, including actors, were offered a great deal: they could live and work in Italy tax-free for a year. Projects were not only re-written to take advantage of this possibility, they were conceived for it: it's uncertain Roman Holiday would exist without the big tax break incentive.For actors, there was clearly another consideration, beyond the big, or at least tax-exempt, bucks and

Disney Has Put Jeff Nichols' Alien Nation Remake on Hold For Now

One of the projects that was being developed at Fox before Disney bought them was a remake of the classic 1988 sci-fi thriller Alien Nation. Director Jeff Nichols was developing the film, but it looks like Disney isn’t too keen on moving forward with it. According to Variety, the Mouse House has “hit the pause button” on the project.

You know what? I’m totally fine with Alien Nation not being remade. It’s one less remake that the world needs. The original movie starred James Caan, Mandy Patinkin, and Terence Stamp. The story is set in Los Angeles in 1991, “humans live alongside extraterrestrial humanoid beings whose spaceship crash landed three years earlier. This coexistence is not always harmonious, as exemplified by segregated slums and the uneasy partnership of police detective Matthew Sykes (Caan) with new humanoid partner Sam Francisco (Patinkin). However, the pair begin to overcome their differences as

Adam Sandler's Murder Mystery Scores Biggest Netflix Debut Ever

It's a pretty well-known fact that the streaming giant, Netflix is more than a little stingy when it comes to letting the world know just how many views any one of their original programs accrues.

‘Murder Mystery’ Review (Netflix)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Luke Evans, Terence Stamp, Gemma Arterton, David Walliams, Danny Boon, John Kani, Adeel Akhtar, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Luis Gerardo Mendez, Shioli Kutsuna, Erik Griffin | Written by James Vanderbilt | Directed by Kyle Newacheck

Murder Mystery, directed by Kyle Newacheck, once again team’s duo Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston after their coupling in Just Go With It, released eight years previously in 2011.

Murder Mystery is the sixth entry into Adam Sandler’s infamous Netflix deal after his departure from Sony almost two years ago. It’s been quite the rocky road to balance sufficient entertainment value from Sandler at his new home. With three films out of the six being a horrendous slog to sit through. Thankfully, his latest is one of his better instalments, perhaps his best comedic performance since the late Nineties. All thanks due to the talent of his co-star Jennifer Aniston, who is delightful as Audrey Spitz,

Film Review: ‘Murder Mystery’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Murder Mystery’
There’s a fortune at loose and Adam Sandler is on the case — in fiction and reality. A decade ago, “Murder Mystery,” a caffeinated comedy that stars Sandler and Jennifer Aniston as working class New Yorkers whose European vacation gets handcuffed to a $70 billion corpse, would have raked in a respectable haul at the box office. (The duo’s 2011 romp “Just Go With It” earned $215 million worldwide.) Today, the A-listers are cavorting on Netflix in a film that feels like a postcard from a past era. Turns out the small screen frames their caper flick just fine.

The multiplex may be in peril, but at least it’s faring better than tycoon Malcolm Quince (an imperious Terence Stamp) who saunters into the ballroom of his yacht to announce that he’s disinheriting all of his guests, and is promptly stabbed to death. The suspects could have all rolled in from a game of Clue.
