Being a private investigator can be a rough gig. Sometimes there’s a drought of work and you’re left waiting for the next case. Other times they’re forced upon you by a slimy congressman played by Paul Giamatti who won’t take no for an answer. Alan Cooper of Shield Investigations comes to learn this hard truth in Bye Bye, Beautiful, the latest flick from 21st Century Cat Pictures and producer Teufel.

David Boreanaz stars as Cooper who is tasked with looking into the politician’s former mistress played by Charlize Theron. It might sound like an enviable job that’s easy on the eyes, but Cooper must determine whether she’s the pure evil blackmailer he’s been told or a damsel in distress. The P.I. can’t quite shake the feeling that while he may not know what’s going on yet, nobody has his best interest at heart.

Rounding out the cast is James Spader as a shady police detective breathing down Cooper’s neck and Michael Imperioli as a gangster with ties to the congressman. When asked about a role that stretches his acting range so much, Imperioli simply shrugged and said, “It’s a living.”

The James Mangold helmed Bye Bye, Beautiful hits your local cinema on February 10th. Check out this exclusive poster that the Hollywood Times was able to obtain:

Hot on the heels of Arsenal of Freedom’s $1.2+ billion dollar worldwide box office gross, The Harmer is back with an ambitious project. ROBOT WARS is back and will be joined by Battlebots in an epic tournament event for theaters.

Robot Wars is a futuristic gladiatorial contest that features robots in combat with each other in a Mortal Kombat style tournament. The robots are from teams of amateur and professional roboteers and Hollywood producers who are operating their own home grown robots. In addition to each other, the robots face arena hazards and more powerful “House Robots”.

The movie will feature host Jeremy Clarkson, commentary by Joey Styles, Pit Interviews with Kari Byron and James May, and judges Adam Savage, Bill Nye, and Brent Spiner. An open invitation to roboteers has been posted on the message board.

Lucian (pictured to the left in South Park avatar form) has posted a real life Kickstarter for his new sci-fi e-book, “Maps on the Wall.” You can visit the campaign here and help support his next writing endeavor. Donations to the campaign of all sizes will receive a copy of the e-book.

Description: “Maps on the Wall” is a 2000-word science fiction story set in the not-too-distant future. Refugees from a dead Earth, a modern day arc, must find a new planet to colonize before time runs out. But is finding the planet the least of their worries?

We’re thrilled to see Lucian branching out with more new original work and wish him much success on the new e-book!


This past week we had the pleasure to sit down and talk with Richard Van Den of Simply the Best Productions. He came onto the Hollywood scene in 2015 with Tina The Movie, then released Olivia Williams and Two Sisters last year. His newest release is In 1981.

What is “In 1981” about?

In 1981 is the name of a new series of films that I’m developing. The first one is about Acron, who is the newly elected president of Libertà. In the capitol Stabania there are lots of problems that he must face.

Who are part of the film’s cast? 

The cast is led by Robert Downey JR, the award winning actor who might be best known from the Batman series. Angela Bassett, who has played a role in every Simply the Best production and I want to keep that tradition alive. Then two legends; Christopher Lambert and Philip Baker Hall.

Where did this idea come from?

Well, I am a huge fan of Avatar the Last Airbender. In that series there was a very interesting map and that inspired me to create my own map. This lead to the creation of the “In 1981” series.

What is next for you?

I am working on a Olivia Williams sequel and I would love to make the next entry into the “In 1981” series.

In 1981 hits theaters worldwide today from the Flip Brothers Studio.

The Hollywood Stars organization has increased its ranks with a new player, cheerleaders, and an announcer who will be a stable member through the Football and Baseball seasons.

The once college star Frank Cushman (Jerry O’Connell) was convinced to join the team by a few famous recruiters. He’ll be cheered on by Darcy (Ali Larter) and Annabelle Farrell (Brooke Langton), who is returning to lead the squad after leaving in 2009 to film “Down and Under”. They join veteran cheerleader Roland Sharp (Tommy Lee Jones) to fill out the ranks. Also joining the Stars is Scotty Smalls (Arliss Howard), an announcer who will be the voice of the Hollywood Stars for both Football and Baseball seasons and will stay with the team even while he is able to film movies.

The Hollywood Stars Football team is coached by Gary Gaines (Billy Bob Thorton), and includes such talents as Paul Blake (Scott Bakula), Al Bundy (Ed O’Neill), Trumaine (Wesley Snipes), and Andre Krimm (Sinbad). Remember, everyone is able to cast members of the Hollywood Stars. If you hire them as a number 1 or 2 star, they will work for free, and if you hire them in any other role they will work for 1/2 price. For more details, visit the Stadium.
