Over the last few years, the teen comedy has gone through a radical change. Thanks to films like Superbad and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, the teen comedy is going back to the roots of John Hughes by going the route of Judd Apatow. The new teen comedy High School is looking to be the film that manages to do both instead of one or the other.

When Ethan Coen and Joel Coen hired T. Bone Burnett to produce the music for their film, O Brother, Where Art Thou? perhaps no one could have foreseen that it would usher in a whole movement in Americana and bluegrass music.

Thirty five years ago today, the original Star Wars was released. It opened in the U.S. on a Wednesday, in just 38 theaters. The studio chose the pre-Memorial Day slot in the hope of getting a jump on the other, bigger movies coming out that summer. George Lucas, the film’s director, was worn out after a long, frustrating shoot, and was not convinced that his movie would be a success. He’d even gone so far as to trade 2.5% of the film’s profits as a bet with his friend Steven Spielberg in the belief that Close Encounters of the Third Kind would out-gross Star Wars.
