We’re quickly going to get a model new, TV adaptation of Interview with the Vampire – and because it’s set in modern-day, presumably the interview is a podcast and Lestat’s tales of unholy misdeeds are consistently being interrupted by commercials about meals packing containers and cheap underpants. The unique film, although, got here out method again in 1994, and starred Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and several other unconvincing wigs.

Whereas we’re guessing that Cruise grew to become a vampire for actual so as to maximize the movie’s accuracy (which, come to think about it, would clarify the age-defying latter stage of his profession) Pitt was … much less enthused with the challenge.

Pitt was so irritated, he phoned producer David Geffen and requested him: “How a lot will it take to get me out?” Because the reply was $40 million, he endured the remainder of the shoot. Once more, this can be a man who simply two years earlier was completely cool with clocking in day in, time out to make Cool World

Sadly for Seven, Voyager had no HR division as a result of, reasonably than simply give her a daily uniform like actually everybody else on the ship, the crew offered her a wardrobe that consisted of solely skin-tight bodysuits that left little to the creativeness for some unstated purpose.

Whereas this may increasingly have appealed to the Venn diagram overlap of Trekkies and Maxim journal subscribers on the time, the outfit was a goddamn nightmare for actress Jeri Ryan.

If that wasn’t unhealthy sufficient, if Ryan needed to a lot as pee, manufacturing needed to shut down for the 20 minutes it took her to get undressed, go to the lavatory, and dress once more. So so as to keep away from the embarrassment and problem of this incidence, she would “not drink all day” which led to her feeling “actually in poor health.”

Rivaling even the filmography of Jason Biggs for grossest cinematic pie scene, The Assist famously tells the story of a number of Black maids working within the South through the Civil Rights motion, so naturally, a lot of the story is about … a white author performed by Emma Stone?

The movie, and the unique novel, have been criticized for being a shiny, prestige-hungry white savior story – or because it’s identified right now, pulling a Inexperienced E book. One of many movie’s Oscar nominations went to the all the time nice Viola Davis, who performed Aibileen.

Whereas right now, you could possibly most likely shoot the entire film with an iPhone and a inexperienced mattress sheet, again in 1962, it necessitated schlepping out to the desert of Morocco. Sadly for star Peter O’Toole, it additionally meant enduring a staggering, Jackie Chan-esque variety of accidents. 

For starters, there have been the camels; after using one for hours on finish, O’Toole’s self-described “delicate Irish arse” actually began bleeding, so he was compelled to “layer his saddle with sponge rubber.” He was additionally bitten on the hand by a camel – at the very least that’s what he instructed a Los Angeles vice cop who busted him and Lenny Bruce as they had been leaving an after-hours ingesting membership in ‘62.
