Exclusive Interview: Alex Chang talks Pao and Pete & Whitely: The Take Away

4 hours ago

In an exclusive interview, Flickering Myth sat down with actor Alex Chang to talk his role in Pao and the hit TV comedy Pete & Whitely: The Take Away

How have your family reacted to your career choice and your successes in the entertainment industry? Was it always your dream to be an actor?

I think the first thing my parents thought was, why – which is an understandable response when first embarking on this particular career path. It can be unsteady work and didn’t exactly breed confidence from my family. Saying that though, as I’ve been working as an actor consistently and in a lot of ways proved to them, and myself, that I can indeed forge a career out of acting, they are my biggest supporters and fans which is lovely.

I was always a lover of music and used that as an outlet for a lot of »

Jason Momoa talks Aquaman and his “coming of age” story

10 hours ago

Having made his debut – briefly – in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman is set to take a leading role in November’s hotly-anticipated superhero ensemble Justice League, before headlining his own movie in 2018.

Speaking to GQ, Momoa has discussed how he gets to “set the tone” for the character, given that this is the first incarnation of the King of Atlantis we’ve had on the big screen, while he also talked about the “coming of age” story that we can look forward to seeing playing out.

“We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field,” Momoa said. “There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it. The guy was never really accepted on land, and he was never really accepted in Atlantis. He’s a half-breed. »

4 More Great War Films (That Still Aren’t Saving Private Ryan)

11 hours ago

Graeme Robertson with four more great war films (that still aren’t Saving Private Ryan)…

A while back I wrote a feature in which I looked back at four of what I considered to be great war films, with the main linking theme being that they weren’t Steven Spielberg’s beloved classic Saving Private Ryan.

However, as many of you are likely to agree that those films, while great, are not the only great war films that aren’t Saving Private Ryan, so thankfully my Flickering overlords have granted me another chance to talk about even more films that I feel you all should take a look at.

While I focused exclusively on World War II films in the first feature, this time I’ve added a touch more variety when picking my cinematic depictions of war this time around, so get ready for a trip to the dying days of World War II, »

Beauty and the Beast knocks Star Wars out of the all-time domestic box office top 10

12 hours ago

For the first time since its release in 1977, George LucasStar Wars no longer sits in the top ten of the all-time highest-grossing domestic movie releases, with Disney’s Beauty and the Beast surpassing the $461 million haul of A New Hope to climb to tenth place.

Here’s the all-time top ten highest-grossing movies in North America:

1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens – $936.6 million

2. Avatar – $760.5 million

3. Titanic – $658.6 million

4. Jurassic World – $652.2 million

5. Marvel’s The Avengers – $623.3 million

6. The Dark Knight – $534.8 million

7. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – $532.1 million

8. Finding Dory – $486.3 million

9. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace – $474.5 million

10. Beauty and the Beast – $472.4 million

Given that it is the 40th anniversary of Star Wars this year, it’s always possible that the original film could receive a re-release to push it back into the top ten. And of course, adjusted for inflation it is still way out ahead of all of the »

Roseanne returning to TV screens with eight-episode revival

14 hours ago

Hit sitcom Roseanne is set for a return to the small screen, with Deadline reporting that Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert have signed on for an eight-episode revival, with the likes of Laurie Metcalf and Johnny Galecki also in talks to return.

The revival is being executive produced by Barr, Tom Werner and Bruce Helford, and is currently out in the marketplace. As you’d expect given the enormous popularity of the original series, multiple networks are bidding for the new series, although original network ABC is considered the sentimental choice.

Revolving around the Conners, a typical working class American family, Roseanne ran on ABC between 1988 and 1997, airing 222 episodes across 9 seasons. It was enormously successful, becoming the most watched show in the U.S. in 1989 and 1990, and won four Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes.
