'Star Wars' creature guru Neal Scanlan reveals how his team created a character inspired by Jim Henson's 'Labyrinth'.
Johnny Depp tried to attack a crew-member on the 'toxic' set of new movie LAbyrinth in Los Angeles, after 'drinking all day', it's been claimed.
As well as being a musical great and style icon, the late David Bowie was also a brilliant actor. According to director Nic Roeg in his book ‘The World is Ever Changing’, he was initially going to cast a 6’8” doctor he’d met at a dinner party as alien Thomas Newton in this quirky sci-fi, but it didn’t work out.
30 years ago today, David Bowie debuted a brave – even by his outré standards – new look, involving bouffant hair, ruffled shirts, leather gloves and a pair of jodhpurs which left little to the imagination. The Jim Henson’s classic fantasy ‘Labyrinth’ came out on June 27, 1986, in the US, starring David Bowie as the goblin king Jareth, and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah, the teenager tasked with finding her kidnapped infant brother Toby somewhere in Jareth’s bizarre labyrinth.
According to USA Today, the classic 1986 fantasy flick is getting a 30th Anniversary re-release… as well as a brand new anniversary edition DVD and Blu-ray. “For those who missed out on seeing it on the big screen in 1986, the film is coming to select theaters around the [USA] Sept. 11 and 14 through Fathom Events,” they revealed. After all, it would be a great tribute to the late, great David Bowie.
‘Labyrinth’ may not get a remake after all, as its supposed writer says it isn’t happening. After reports claiming that ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ writer Nicole Perlman was involved in an upcoming reboot of ‘Labyrinth’, it looks as though the writer herself has taken to Twitter to debunk the rumour. “No one is remaking ‘Labyrinth’.
The Hollywood Reporter just broke the news that Sony’s Tri-Star Pictures are getting to work on a new version of musical fantasy classic ‘Labyrinth’ - barely a week after the death of the film’s leading man, David Bowie. The 1986 film - the last to be directed by Muppets creator Jim Henson (who died four years later in 1990) - saw Bowie don a notoriously pointy wig and even more notoriously tight trousers to portray Jareth, the sinister Goblin King. When precocious teenager Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) unthinkingly wishes her baby brother Toby away, Jareth abducts the child.
