    Watch: Terry Gilliam & John Landis Hang Out Together In London In 1-Hour TV Special

    The German series "Durch die Nacht mit..." ("Into The Night") is the gift that keeps on giving. The show, which gets two artists together and then just shoots them as they hang out and talk over a single day, has already yielded a great episode featuring Harmony Korine and Gaspar Noé (which you can ...

    John Landis Says Fox Doesn't Love Max Landis' 'Chronicle 2' Script, His Paris-Set Monster Movie Is Dead For Now & Talks Hardships Of 'American Werewolf'

    While much has been said about Universal Studios not having a standout year at the box office, or at least one befitting of the landmark studio's 100th Anniversary this year, you’d barely be able to tell by the rate at which they’re celebrating. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS...

    CRUEL SUMMER: THE BLUES BROTHERS

    According to John Landis, "The Blues Brothers" was the last movie made under the old studio factory system. "The Blues Brothers" feels, indeed, like a transitional movie. It takes the form of a big studio musical, but its execution is all 1980s bigger-is-better filmmaking.

    Review: Sorry, 'Burke & Hare' Is Simply Not The John Landis Comeback We Were Hoping For

    It seems like nowadays, especially in our gimme-gimme-gimme, now-now-now society of instant, hyperlinked gratification, that when a movie’s release is delayed or postponed, that it takes on a mystical dimension of importance and fascination. This leads to endless speculation about why the film hasn’t made its way to (domestic) theaters yet; what’s the reason behind the hold-up? In the in-between time, a new reputation for the film has already been forged, one based on tenuous material and (possibly) overseas reviews. In the case of John Landis’ “Burke & Hare,” which was released almost a year ago in England, the word was that the film was som...

    John Landis’ Planning French Monster Movie to Shoot in Paris

    John Landis: big in Europe. You wait years for the “Trading Places” director to make one film that will restore karmic balance to the universe and make amends for “Blues Brothers 2000,” and two come along at once. Well, sort of. Given the tepid response since its release in the U.K. almost a year ago, it’s unlikely that the director’s upcoming knockabout Simon Pegg-starring black comedy “Burke & Hare” is going to be the film that catapults him back to his creative heyday of the 1980s. More promising perhaps is what he recently told the guys at Bloody Disgusting. He’s working on an untitled “little monster movie” due to shoot within the next ...
