And people always said, ‘Oh no, it’ll never get remade! It’s a classic! They could never top it!’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’ll get remade. It’s a massive story! The characters are so beloved,” Sean added about his character. “When I saw the Amazon thing, that didn’t even occur to me. I just sort of thought, ‘What would it be like to see the next Sam there?’ I think it’s an intriguing idea [but] the devil’s in the details. How would they do it? How? Who?’”.....»»

Walmart Apologizes For "Own The School Year Like A Hero" Sign Over Gun Display Case!

The retail giant is under fire after someone snapped a photo of a gun display in one of its stores underneath a sign that reads, "Own the school year like a hero." Since the photo went viral this week, the company has been scrambling to find out which of its stores put up the sign that many are calling offensive. Photo: Walmart's Website Described Product As 'N-Word Brown' After investigating the matter, Walmart reports that the sign seems to have been taken from a separate store campaign -- one unrelated to firearms -- and that corporate is trying to find out if a worker or shopper is responsible for making the switch. Online reaction has been heated, needless to say, with many responders referencing school shootings and Besty DeVos' prophesied grizzly bear attacks: ...what are you suggesting? @Walmart pic.twitter.com/Ng0LbtnAnf — ZijZ (@ItsZijZ) August 9, 2017 @NRA I thought this was the launch of the new NRA campaign. — Escape Room Tourism (@escapetourism) August 10, 2017 Why not leave the sign and remove the guns? You are contributing to violence on a massive scale. — Mark Wallace (@jmarkwallace) August 10, 2017 Is this real? Literally... HOW tone deaf can a corp be? — kathleen sg (@kathleensiwikgo) August 9, 2017 Must be grizzly bear season in the schools again.

Again, so sorry. -Dean — Walmart (@Walmart) August 9, 2017 [Image via Twitter.].....»»

Bill Pullman Channels Gabby Hayes With ‘The Ballad of Lefty Brown’

The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a beautifully shot and acted Western that isn't anchored in the predictable point of view of a gunslinger or law abiding sheriff. Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) isn't quick on on the draw and he's far from an able bodied protagonist. Instead, Lefty is driven by his heart and loyalty [...] The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a beautifully shot and acted Western that isn’t anchored in the predictable point of view of a gunslinger or law abiding sheriff. Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) isn’t quick on on the draw and he’s far from an able bodied protagonist. Instead, Lefty is driven by his heart and loyalty to his more responsible best friend Edward (Peter Fonda) who is gunned down in cold blood. Lefty’s mission of revenge leads him to a reunion with two former riding partners, one of whom is now Montana’s governor (Jim Caviezel). Tom Harrah (Tommy Flanagan) is Lefty’s other old friend, a just as loyal buddy who now is the governor’s right hand man. The feature has its share of action sequences as the elderly and understandably scared Lefty gets into his share of scrapes, and one of the many beauties behind this film is its loving homage to Gabby Hayes, cinema’s most popular Western sidekick. Click on the media bar below to hear how Pullman is connected to Gabby Hayes (spoiler alert: both of them were born in New York!): The Ballad of Lefty Brown, directed by Jared Moshe, opens December 15 and is currently available on DirecTV Cinema.
