Al Pacino Injures His Eye On 'Stand Up Guys' Set

April 25th, 2012 10:36am EDT
Al Pacino
Al Pacino was treated by medics on the set of his new movie Stand Up Guys after hurting his eye in an explosive gun-wielding scene.

The Scarface legend has teamed up with fellow veteran star Christopher Walken for the movie, in which two ageing gangsters enjoy one last job.

The pair filmed a gunfight sequence on the streets of Los Angeles, with both firing off fake pistols in front of the cameras on Monday.

However, Pacino was left wincing in pain after the scene wrapped, and medics had to wash out his eye with solution.

It's not known how the actor was injured.

Robert Loggia Unhappy About 'Scarface' Remake

September 26th, 2011 8:01am EDT
Robert Loggia
Veteran actor Robert Loggia has urged movie bosses to abandon a planned big screen re-imagining of cult classic Scarface.

Reports emerged last week that the crime drama is set to be remade for a new generation of movie fans.

The 1983 film, which starred Al Pacino as Cuban gangster Tony Montana, was itself an adaptation of Howard Hawks' 1932 picture of the same name, starring Paul Muni as an Italian who takes over the city of Chicago, Illinois.

However Loggia, who played drug lord Frank Lopez in the 1980s adaptation, wants executives at Universal Pictures to scrap their plans for an up...

Scarface
Al Pacino's legendary movie Scarface is to be given a big screen make-over for a new generation of movie fans.

The popular 1983 crime drama, which starred Pacino as Cuban gangster Tony Montana, was a remake of Howard Hawks' 1932 film starring Paul Muni as an Italian who takes over the city of Chicago, Illinois.

Now movie bosses are planning to revive the format for a third time, according to Deadline.com.

The website reports executives at Universal Pictures are planning a new version of Scarface with producer Martin Bregman, who worked on the Pacino film, with a new character and sett...

Blu-ray Interview/Review: 'Scarface's' Steven Bauer - Career Interview Time!

September 6th, 2011 3:30pm EDT
Scarface piece
If Tony Montana was the heavy of his illegal operation, then his right hand man Manny Ribera was most certainly the heart. Brought to life by then newbie actor Steven Bauer, Manny had both a danger and charisma that made him a perfect yin to Tony’s wild and unpredictable yang. So we here at Starpulse thought it only fitting that just in time for the tasty release of the "Scarface" Limited Edition Blu-ray hitting shelves Sept. 6 from Universal Home Video (check out the review below as well!), we wanted to get some movie geek insight about the flick from the bold Bauer himself. And while m...

September 5th, 2011 8:28am EDT
Al Pacino
Hollywood legend Al Pacino was the toast of Italy's Venice Film Festival this weekend as he was honored for his work as a moviemaker.

The Scarface icon is in Venice to promote his new directorial project Wilde Salome, a part-documentary about writer/poet Oscar Wilde and part-movie adaptation of his play Salome, and he picked up the Jaeger Lecoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award at a glitzy gala on Sunday night.

Earlier that day, his film was screened to members of the press and, during a news conference after the showing, Pacino admitted he was fascinated by Wilde's lifestyle as a homosexu...

Al Pacino - 'Scareface'
Two weeks before its first ever Blu-ray release, Universal Home Entertainment threw a party for the gangster classic Scarface.

Everyone remembers Tony’s final moments in the climactic machine gun battle, following his immortal line, “Say hello to my little friend.” Pacino shared the story you don’t know.

“I’d just fired off 30 rounds, I get hit with the squibs and I start leaping up in the air, fly...

Michael Bolton
Crooner Michael Bolton stole the show on Saturday Night Live this weekend, dressing up as Captain Jack Sparrow to film a hilarious music video.

The singer showed off his hidden talent as a comedian when he teamed up with funnyman Andy Samberg and his comedy rap group The Lonely Island for the digital short "Jack Sparrow," a tribute to Johnny Depp's character in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

The funny clip featured Bolton singing about his love for the Disney franchise, while he also appeared on a boat dressed head to toe in pirate gear, complete with Sparrow's signatur...

Tribeca: Beats, Rhymes & Life Of A Tribe Called Quest

April 30th, 2011 7:40am EDT
tcq
Once upon a time, someone in the hip-hop community decreed that Bill Clinton had earned the “Black People Card”. I’m not certain, but it sounds like something Chris Rock would’ve said, so for now I’ll credit him with this. The argument was that Clinton was so cool, so down with black people, that had it not been for the colour of his skin, he’d be considered black on street cred alone. Think of the Black People Card as the Black Amex of the hip-hop community: you can’t apply for the card. If you ask, chances are you can’t afford it. No, you have to be sent an invitation. The hip-hop communi...

Will 'Public Enemies' With Christian Bale And Johnny Depp Make The Top Gangster Movie List?

June 30th, 2009 10:10am EDT
Public Enemies
It's hard to draft this kind of list with "Public Enemies" so close to reaching its port of call at your local theater, since it's bound to shake the list up a bit. But so far as it goes, the Mob genre has a few golden standards that have set the bar high enough to make any director quake in their concrete boots at the prospect of taking the plunge. These films have a built-in mechanism that causes them either to take complete control of the empire or erupt like a car bomb. It's the requirement for these movies to champion the 'bad guy' as the hero of the film, casting them in a sympathetic...

Satan's Helpers: Powerhouse Actors Embody The Devil

October 30th, 2008 11:50am EDT
Legend
Another Halloween is upon us, and in addition to witches and goblins "All Hallows Eve" conjures up images of everyone's favorite bad guy, Satan. Here's a list of some of Hollywood's best actors and their interpretation of the world's "worst" guy.

Tim Curry in "Legend" as "Darkness"

Only in the darkness will Satan have power and only in a Ridley Scott film will Tim Curry be the ultimate Satan for all time as "Darkness" itself. Amazing costume and make-up design help to bring the most sexual and darkly beautiful embodiment of the Devil to film. Darkness is a lonely and sadly...

Is Nicolas Cage Washed Up or Just Making Bad Decisions?

September 5th, 2008 10:40am EDT
The Wicker Man
In 1996 Nicolas Cage stood on stage at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and accepted his first, and currently only, Oscar for his tour de force performance in Mike Figgis' Leaving Las Vegas. This past year, while starring in Neil LaBute's ill-fated remake of the British horror classic The Wicker Man, Cage, donning a grizzly bear costume, punched a woman in the face.

There are two sides to Nicolas Cage-the go-to superstar with the droopy eyes and smug demeanor and Cage the talented, easily forgotten actor. Unfortunately the latter, Academy Award winning Cage persona is a distant memory a...

Best Movie Lines That Have Stuck In Pop Culture

June 5th, 2008 9:00am EDT
The Sixth Sense
There are some movies that live forever in the minds of humanity generation after generation. They span decades, continents, and cross racial and gender divides. What creates that certain magic is intangible, but it inevitably involves the memorable quotes that make their way into pop culture and every day speech.

These quotes have a universal quality, whether humorous or tragic, and they take you back to that exact moment in the film when Marlon Brando screams into the air or Humphrey Bogart gently touches Ingrid Bergman's chin. These iconic moments are not only remembered but consta...

Pitbull Releases Video For 'The Anthem,' Featuring Lil' Jon

Pitbull
Much like his canine namesake, it's not very safe to corner Cuban-American MC Pitbull. Since debuting in 2002 alongside Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz's Kings of Crunk album to last year's star turn with Trick Daddy and Rick Ross on DJ Khaled's ode to Miami's Dade County, "Born N Raised," Pitbull defies labels. As charismatic as any rapper in hip-hop, Pitbull effortlessly moves between crunk and gritty rap anthems, truly earning his nickname Mr. 305.

His new album, Boatlift, brings together Pit's ever expansive world on one album; brimming with sexy Caribbean influences and sounds like...

Dolph Lundgren Discusses 'Missionary Man,' Filmmaking And Being The Bad Guy

Dolph Lundgren
Dolph Lundgren has stared in over 30 action films, portraying, among many others, He-Man, The Punisher, and Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. After killing hundreds of bad guys, leaping from dozens of exploding cars and buildings, and saving plenty of damsels in distress, Dolph is tackling his greatest challenge yet: directing. Starpulse caught up with the action star to discuss filmmaking, playing the bad guy, and learning to trust the audience.

What is it that inspired the story of Missionary Man?

Point/Counterpoint: Should Hollywood Stop Remaking Classic Films?

January 18th, 2008 1:45pm EST
Rob Zombie
Over the years many classic movies have been remade. Don't get me wrong, some of those remakes have been really good. But the majority of the movies have been really bad.

These days, special effects are being taken to a whole new level, but that's not always a good thing. One of the main reasons these films are classics is because CGI was in the distant future. People loved the original "Godzilla" because you can see the man in the Godzilla costume crushing a cardboard box, also known as Tokyo.

There are few movies that have scared me, and one of those films was the 1978 movie "Ha...

Violence Propels Filmmakers, Moviegoers & The Academy Awards

January 11th, 2008 12:07pm EST
No Country For Old Men
The lights go down. A low, rumbling bass slightly shakes the seats as the occupants draw in a tight, anticipatory breath. The first thing to break the tension is a thin beam of light across the center of the screen. It is accompanied by a low, rat-at-tat rhythm that could be rain on a tin roof- if it weren't for the high-pitched shriek in the background.

Is that yelling? Shouting? The shriek morphs into a scream of mechanical menace. It's a bomb, and it's followed by an explosion linked to the picture exploding into life. The audience sees all-out war. Guts are flying, blood is strea...

Movie Remakes: 'Heartbreak Kid' Fails While Others Have Succeeded

October 10th, 2007 11:54am EDT
The Heartbreak Kid
The Heartbreak Kid, the latest collaboration between Ben Stiller and the Farrelly brothers, debuted in second place this past weekend with a modest $14 million haul at the box office. The last Stiller-Farrelly project, 1998's There's Something About Mary, pulled in $176.5 million that year.

The film has been widely panned by critics as less enjoyable than the 1972 original, which starred Cybill Shepherd as the dream girl. Fortunately, not all movie remakes end in disaster and box office disappointment. A few that worked:

Daddy Warbucks from Annie has topped the Forbes "Fictional 15," an annual listing of the wealthiest fictional characters. Santa Clause was eliminated from the list this year because Forbes was inundated with letters from children insisting the jolly man is "real."

According to Forbes, Warbucks, an ex-U.S. Army general turned industrialist, is worth $36.2 billion, thanks to the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and because of a contract to provide oil-well maintenance in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
