Beginning today, AMC Stubs members in the United States can rent or buy approximately 2,000 of the most popular digital movies from the top Hollywood studios at AMCTheatres.com as well as on the AMC Theatres mobile, connected devices and SmartTV applications.

To celebrate the launch, AMC Stubs members who use their first transaction to buy or rent a movie distributed by Lionsgate or Paramount Pictures can choose an additional three movies from a selection of that studio’s films.

AMC has agreements with every major Hollywood studio to make selections of their movies available for digital rental and purchase, including both new release and popular catalogue movies. New releases will become available on AMC Theatres On Demand the same time they are available digitally nationwide, following the traditional theatrical window set by each studio for each movie.

As part of a first-ever cross-platform marketing partnership between AMC Theatres and AMC Networks, AMC Stubs members will also be able to find movies from AMC Networks’ IFC Films and RLJE Films catalogues on the AMC Theatres On Demand platform beginning in late 2019. Through the partnership, AMC Theatres will also promote AMC Networks’ targeted streaming services Acorn TV, Shudder, Sundance Now and UMC directly to moviegoers, including more than 20 million AMC Stubs households.

Movies can be purchased or rented through AMCTheatres.com, the AMC Theatres mobile app, Roku and SmartTVs with more services and devices to be added in the near future.

AMC Theatres On Demand rentals and purchases both earn AMC Stubs points that members can accumulate towards in-theatre rewards. AMC Stubs membership will be required for all digital transactions.

Suntup Editions Announces Misery UK Covers Collection Print By Paul Bryn Davies

Suntup Editions announces their second print by artist Paul Bryn Davies in The Covers Collection. Last year, they had the honor of including Paul’s art from the first edition U.K. paperback cover of IT. This month, Suntup brings you his cover art from the first edition U.K. paperback of Misery. This iconic cover art can now be enjoyed for the very first time without cover text.

Stephen King’s novel Misery made its debut in June 1987, but it would not be released in paperback until 1988. Constant readers in the U.K. were treated to a very different kind of artwork upon the paperback release. Previous covers had featured either a typewriter, or a shadow of Annie across the wall, making Davies the artist who holds the distinction for first rendering Annie Wilkes.

One of the major differences between the 1990 film adaptation of Misery and the novel is the movie’s slow burn to discovering Annie’s insanity. In earlier parts of the movie, she is portrayed as wholesome, hospitable, and even demure, but from the very first pages of Stephen King’s novel, Paul Sheldon describes Annie Wilkes as “dangerously crazy… giving only one thing: a feeling of unease deepening steadily toward terror.” Davies depiction portrays the wide-eyed mania evident in Wilkes right from the start.

– Museum Quality Giclée prints.
– Signed and authorized by the original cover artist.
– Limited to only 50 copies of each size worldwide, plus 3 Artist Proofs and 3 Publisher Proofs for private distribution.
– Shipped with a Certificate of Limitation and Authenticity from the publisher.
– Printed on 300 GSM, 100% cotton paper that is Acid-Free, Lignin-Free, Chlorine-Free and with No Optical Brighteners.
– Prints are embossed with the publisher’s mark.

Release Date: November 1, 2019
Available for Pre-Order: October 15, 2019

Large Size: 18″ x 24″ $175

Watch The New Disney+ Live-Action Lady And The Tramp Trailer

Viewers of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars just got a glimpse of the all-new, live-action version of Lady and the Tramp, which debuts on Disney+ when the new streaming service launches on Nov. 12.

In Disney+’s Lady and the Tramp, a timeless re-telling of the 1955 animated classic, a pampered house dog and a tough but lovable stray embark on an unexpected adventure and, despite their differences, grow closer and come to understand the value of home. Life is good for Lady, an overachieving American Cocker Spaniel who resides in an upscale suburban neighborhood. Her owners, Jim Dear and Darling, spoil her daily and her neighbors, Jock, an outspoken Scottish Terrier and Trusty, a world-weary Bloodhound, are always within barking distance. But when a baby enters the picture, Lady is no longer the center of attention, and the arrival of cat-loving Aunt Sarah only complicates matters. Lady soon finds herself alone on the streets in an unwelcoming part of town. Fortunately, Tramp steps in, and the streetwise mongrel is quick to teach her the ways of the world. Before long, the prim and proper pure bred and the fast-talking mutt are partaking in moonlight strolls in the park and romantic spaghetti dinners by candlelight. Tramp savors the independence of a world without leashes or fences alongside his roguish friends Peg and Bull, but Lady misses the comfort and safety of a family, and soon both must decide where – and with whom – they belong. 

   

A heartwarming romantic adventure that seamlessly combines live action and photorealistic animation, Lady and the Tramp stars: Tessa Thompson as the voice of Lady and Justin Theroux as the voice of Tramp; Kiersey Clemons as Darling; Thomas Mann as Jim Dear; Janelle Monáe as the voice of Peg; Yvette Nicole Brown as Aunt Sarah; and Sam Elliott as the voice of Trusty. The film is directed by Charlie Bean from a screenplay by Andrew Bujalski and Kari Granlund.

Lady and the Tramp premieres on November 12, 2019, streaming only on Disney+.

Zoe Kravitz To Play Catwoman In The Batman

Zoe Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) has been tapped for the role of Catwoman/Selina Kyle in WB’s upcoming The Batman. She’ll star alongside Robert Pattinson as the titular hero.

Other cast members for the film include Jeffrey Wright who is in talks for the role of Commissioner Gordon and Jonah Hill who will star as a yet unnamed villain in the film.

Kravitz steps into the role most recently played by Anne Hathaway in 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises. Lee Meriweather, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Halle Berry also played Catwoman on the big screen.

The Batman has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2015 when Ben Affleck signed on to the DCEU. Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) signed on to helm about a month after Affleck’s directorial departure with the added caveat that he’d get to rewrite the script from scratch.

Reeves’ story has been described as a character-driven project focusing on Batman’s experiences as the world’s greatest detective. The filmmaker has also said to expect a “Rogue’s Gallery” of villains in the movie. Oscar-nominated cinematographer Greig Fraser will serve as director of photography for the project.

The Batman is scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.

The Most Iconic Casino Scenes

Caesar’s Palace is home to one particularly special scene

The inside of a casino is a truly special place: there’s something that is at once both glamorous and mysterious about it. Sauntering down the Vegas strip, it’s hard not to feel like a Hollywood Star, so it’s no surprise that this setting has captured the imaginations of so many film and television directors. With such a number of scenes being shot inside casinos, it’s almost no wonder that there’s a long list of iconic casino scenes. These are our most memorable favorites.

Friends – The One in Vegas

Joey taking the role of a casino gladiator

Whilst a lot of casino scenes are the ultimate in cool, there are some that are just downright hilarious. It’s easy to play the smooth operator when surrounded by the glitz and glamour of a casino, but it takes something special to have people bent over double laughing! As is the case with many a tough comedy gig, the cast of Friends manage it with aplomb. In ‘The One in Vegas’ episode, we see the gang make their way to Las Vegas in what was supposed to be a romantic weekend for just Chandler and Monica. It ends up with Joey taking the role of a casino gladiator and Ross and Rachel playing as many practical jokes on each other as it must’ve been possible to fit into the script. Whilst the whole episode is hilarious from start to finish, perhaps the most iconic scene is made by Joey and Phoebe. After Phoebe spends her night dealing with an elderly ‘lurker’ and Joey starts his get-rich-quick scheme with his hand twin, the pair see themselves unceremoniously ejected from the casino. It’s a real golden moment from this series and one that will go down in casino history.

Casino Royale

Is there a scene more iconic than the poker game in Casino Royale?

No Casino countdown would be complete without the high-stakes poker battle that was at the core of Casino Royale. This gritty yet glamorous game between hero and villain has us all on the edge of our seats, no matter how many times we’ve seen it. At the beginning of the game, James Bond spots Le Chiffre’s tell and immediately gains the upper hand. However, this is soon swiped away from him when Le Chiffre is tipped off about the tell and Bond loses his initial stake. Just as it’s looking like Bond is going to take this game to the kill-or-be-killed stage, one of his fellow players offers to stake Bond if Le Chiffre is allowed to be taken into American Custody. A frustrated Bond agrees and slowly rebuilds his position. It’s looking like the drama might be coming to a close, when in one of the most iconic scenes in history, Le Chiffre’s girlfriend spikes Bond’s martini with a deadly poison. In a scene with intensely uncomfortable viewing, he struggles back to his car, to take an antidote to the poison. Once recovered he makes his way back to the game where now only he and Le Chiffre remain. In true Bond heroism, he manages to win a $115 million hand with a straight flush, sealing the fate of the bad guy. Perfection.

Rain Man

Who can forget this classic scene from this beloved film?

This whole film is undoubtedly a masterpiece, a story that brilliantly explores the relationship of two brothers, Ray (Dustin Hoffman) and Charlie (Tom Cruise). A clever subplot of the movie births one of the most memorable casino scenes of all time, where a bewildered Charlie accompanies his brother Ray to a casino with the aim of getting him out of debt. It turns out that Charlie has discovered that Ray has a photographic memory and an incredible gift for numbers, so the card-counting plot begins. 

The pair walk into a Caesar’s Palace, La Vegas, in brilliantly 80’s matching beige suits and amongst scenes of brotherly bickering we see Ray get to work showing off his mathematical skills. The card counting scene makes for intense viewing as we watch Ray’s fluttering eye movements as he thinks his way through the deck. After what seems like an almost painful eternity, the brother’s emerge victorious, having won just enough to settle those debts. Of course, all is not rosy for long, as the casino does not take kindly to losing and the pair are banned from playing again. Whatever the eventual outcome, it’s a brilliant casino scene, that’s truly unforgettable.

Universal Pictures has released the trailer for Dolittle starring Robert Downey Jr. as the title character.

After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.’

The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Dunkirk’s Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Bohemian Rhapsody Oscar winner Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (The Help Oscar winner Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (The Big Sick’s Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena, Bumblebee) and a headstrong parrot (Howard’s End Oscar winner Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.

Dolittle is directed by Stephen Gaghan (Gold, Syriana) and the star-studded film adaptation is scheduled to make its debut next year on January 17, 2020.

Real Spying Tricks That We Have Seen In The Movies

Most people want to be a real-life spy because of the drama, danger and the intrigue. Below are a couple of tricks extracted from famous spy movies which you can easily learn and employ.

Zip-Ties

Have you ever wondered how a spy escapes from the villain and saves the day? Zip-ties are widely used in this genre of film to tie up people replacing handcuffs. To escape, the technique is very simple, you just need to know what to do and practice.

First, tighten the zip and suddenly move your hands away from each other with power. You can tighten the zip with your teeth. The tighter it is, the easier tit is to break it. The elbows needs to flare outward as you place stress on the zip tie.

Hiding Spots

Every spy has hiding spots where secrets are stored. Mostly old books are used to communicate or transfer important information in them. The hero will rush to his safe house to get the things he needs for crucial times and hiding within a hollowed book is a key, gun, money or some important clue which aids him in his mission.

You can hollow out the pages of a hardcover and retrieve a USB hidden inside the book. That’s pretty modern and cool… Right?

Gathering Intelligence 

A Spy needs to gather all the intelligence he can get regarding his target and mission. They use the internet, social media, files, etc. to learn about the person they are spying on. Now you can use the top 6 incoming and outgoing call trackers for your kids’ iPhone to get the information about where and to whom your kids are talking to. You can Spy like a Master!

Cipher

Although modern tools are sleek and shiny, an old school method of spying has a certain level of class. You can code your secret intel safe by using the Cipher technic. A cipher utilizes an exiting alphabet and shares a corresponding different letter. For example, in the word SPY – S would become A, P becomes B and Y becomes C.

Ciphers allow you to make a secret password as well. Only those that can access the correct cipher can solve the clue.

Invisible Ink

Invisible inks are very helpful if you want to stay off the grid and want to deliver an important secret. And trust us, it works perfectly. From using lemon juice to baking soda to pressure indentation, these are  clever ways to leave a secret message for your contact. If you have mastered the cipher and sent a message with invisible ink, you are a mystery master!
