We over here at PPW have a special place in our hearts for the John Hughes classic film, The Breakfast Club (1985). So much so, that we’ve searched far and wide for any behind the scenes photos that may be out there, only to find that there isn’t a whole lot to check out. An album we created a few years back and posted to Reddit has been re-posted around the web, showing that we’re not the only ones looking for a rare behind the scenes glimpse of this 80’s classic. So here is the album we created, in all it’s glory for you to enjoy:

Reddit user GallowBoob lived nearby the Lutz, Florida neighborhood that served as the backdrop for Edward Scissorhands (1990) and recently took the time to line up a couple of real life shots to match the film.

In GallowBoob’s own words as posted in this IMGUR album: “In 1990 Edward Scissorhands was filmed in a (then brand new) subdivision right down the street from me just outside of Tampa, Fl. My Mom worked for the doctor on call to the set. I had some afternoon hours off recently so I took my daughter for a stroll around the neighborhood and took some “before and afters.” It looks NOTHING like it did, mainly because there were no trees in the movie, just bushes… (and of course the houses were painted pastely)”

Here are Gallowboob’s pics in all their glory:

Maybe it’s a glitch in the Matrix, or maybe we’re all just suckers for nostalgia. The return of Hello Dolly on broadway wasn’t the only flamboyant revival we’ve seen in 2011. HERE WE GO: Cars 2, Diary of a Whimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, Happy Feet 2, Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil, Johnny English Reborn, Kung Fu Panda 2, Piranha 3DD, Sherlock Holmes 2, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Madea’s Big Happy Family, Paranormal Activity 3, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Scream 4, Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, Twilight: Breaking Dawn (Part One), Fast Five, Final Destination 5, Puss in Boots, X-Men: First Class, Winnie the Pooh, The Muppets: Rise of the Apes, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows PART TWO.

Here’s where we bitch about the obvious. Instead, the folks at PPW have prepared a treat: THE HANGOVER TRAILERS SIDE BY SIDE. They’re not identical, but then again at one point, we all thought Michelle Tanner was one person.

No joke. This actually happened. What you don’t see is how nice Tom Wilson actually is. Thankfully for all of us, you can’t see anything in Biff’s pants either. This video was filmed at a fun lil’ comedy club called The Icehouse in Pasadena, where Tom stayed well after his show to meet and greet with fans. Luckily, some dude next to me was hollering like a madman, which spawned this epic camera in Biff’s pants moment.

For more on the very funny and talented Tom Wilson, please visit his official site (http://www.tomwilsonusa.com/).

Tom is also a very accomplished visual artist, focusing on pop imagery that PPW can definitely get behind. A few of his paintings are below, but see more at (http://www.bigpopfun.com/)

Filmgoers have the rare opportunity to see a 35mm, theatrical print of “Can’t Buy Me Love,” along with a talkback with many of the film’s cast and its screenwriter, at a midnight showing on Friday, February 11, 2011, at Landmark’s Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles.

WHAT: “CAN’T BUY ME LOVE” First Ever Cast/Crew Reunion Screening

In 1987, Seth Green was barely a teenager when he got to hang with the cool kids on the set of “Can’t Buy Me Love.” From seeing movies with his on-screen older brother Patrick Dempsey, to learning skateboard tricks off the set from Max Perlich, Green recalled many fond memories with his castmates while filming this 80’s cult-classic film.

The CBML screening will welcome an ensemble of key players, giving audience members the opportunity to ask questions and be part of the reunion.
