Fathoms Events and Sony Pictures presents a chance to see one of the greatest and craziest films of all time, Martin Scorsese‘s Taxi Driver in U.S. theaters again this week. Celebrating the film’s 40th anniversary, Taxi Driver drives back to cinemas for only one more day, Wednesday, October 19th. I got a chance to go to a showing on Sunday in New York City. I’d argue the real star of the film is New York City itself. The city pulses throughout; the filth and degradation of the 1970s feels hundreds of years removed, not a mere 40.
Taxi Driver features the definition of “all-star cast,” headlined by Oscar-winner Robert De Niro as the film’s notorious anti-hero Travis Bickle. Joining him are future two-time Oscar-winner Jodie Foster, who was 14 when the movie debuted in 1976. Cybill Shepherd, Albert Brooks, Peter Boyle, and Harvey Keitel round out the cast. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Actor (De Niro), Supporting Actress (Foster), and Score (the amazing Bernard Herrmann).
In honor of the late Gene Wilder, Fathom Events hosted a one-night one-time-only event in theaters, and Mel Brooks did a live tribute to his friend. This tribute and screening of the 1974 hit Young Frankenstein, happened Wednesday, October 5th at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT/5:00pm PT, at over 500 theaters nationwide.
Fathom Events and Twentieth Century Fox are preparing to welcome you back to Transylvania to join Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronkensteen”) and his crazy cohorts for one more night of mad science and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” In a special one-night-only event, director Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein is returning to U.S. theaters, Wednesday night, October 5th at 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT, 6:00pm MT, 5:00pm PT). Brooks will join audiences live from Hollywood. He will be introducing his 1974 classic comedy while touring the Fox lot where much of the filming took place. And of course bring your tissues, as Brooks will be remembering the late great Gene Wilder, the star and co-writer of Young Frankenstein, who passed away on August 29, 2016.
Check out the details about the screening here below.
This has been floating around the Net for a while now, but not long after the first trailer for the latest Adam Sandler “comedy” Jack & Jill was released some one created a video that cleverly intercut clips from the trailer with a scene from the 1979 Paul Schrader film Hardcore. You can watch it here below.
The Gold Box deal is valid for today only until midnight PST while supplies last.
The DVD set includes all 9 seasons of the popular sitcom on 44 discs — that’s all 210 episodes — and comes in a collectible house structure. There’s also a bunch of bonus features like audio commentary, deleted scenes, gag reel, and much more, along with a 40-page script of the series finale autographed by all 10 of the episode’s writers.
