Digital Spy looks at the stars of Gremlins 30 years later

Digitalspy has put up a “Where are they now” for the cast of Gremlins since it has been 30 years since the original film released. Check it out here: http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/feature/a615460/30-years-since-gremlins-stars-of-the-christmas-cult-classic-then-and-now.html

While most of the information is accurate, it doesn’t mention a few points like Glynn Turman’s role in the cult-favorite “John Dies At The End” or the Back To The future/Gremlins connections. Of course they manage to sneak in a jab at Corey Feldman’s past drug problems, and we are reminded yet again of how much the world lost an incredibly versatile talent in Hoyt Axton (Rand Peltzer in Gremlins)

This sadly seems to be more than Warner Bros has been doing to promote Gremlins’ 30th anniversary, and considering the delays on the 30th anniversary edition Gremlins Blu-Ray in some territories, it certainly feels to some fans that Gremlins is nowhere near the priority they feel it should be.

What do you think? Sound off in the comments below!

I had the pleasure of interviewing Aelia as she was finishing this book, and while the intent was originally to release the interview when the book launched on June 8th to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Gremlins, I decided to wait until people had some time to enjoy the book and absorb the incredible amount of love that was put into the project before posting the interview.

Check it out after the break!

{30th Anniversary} Gremlins is now available for digital download!

Hey folks!

Let the mayhem begin!!!

As part of Warner Bros’  celebration in honor of 1984’s Gremlins 30th anniversary as well as Gremlins 2: The New Batch is now gremlisn coveravailable for Digital Download on iTunes! The quality is about the same as the current blu-ray release, and is just exciting to be able to have on my mobile device in high quality. Note: all the pictures in this post are courtesy of Warner Brothers and are grabbed from the iTunes digital download of Gremlins. The price is reasonable, and Warner Bros is offering a significant discount when buying the digital 2-pack. Might be worth it if nothing else than to watch Gremlins on an airplane….the irony!

This is just the first release in what is shaping up to be a fantastic 2014 for Gremlins fans.
Earlier this year, series star Zach Galligan tweeted that he did an 80-minute interview for the 30th anniversary “Definitive” Blu-Ray, which should be hitting later this year, and from what I have heard will contain new never-before-seen footage. Might we see the infamous McDonald’s scene? Probably not, but we just might get something surprising. As the tagline goes: What you see, isn’t always what you get.  00309425web

Speaking personally, I am pleasantly surprised that WB is putting their weight behind Gremlins this year.
The 25th anniversary came and went with a release, but not much fanfare.
In the merchandise realm, fans know that the Gremlins license is strong, with Neca’s recent Spider Gremlin selling incredibly well, and their 1:1 puppet prop replicas really standing out as must-haves for Gremlins fans.  The Gremlins Series 3 line seems to be on indefinite hiatus at this point due to poor sales of previous 00213046webGremlin-themed figures vs their Mogwai figures, but that is another topic for another time.

Granted I would love to see and hold some props/replicas of original Gremlins gear, based on the 1984 sculpts since they seemed so much more “real” and detailed than the sequel’s designs to me. In the end, I am just happy to see more merchandise happening. Just a fact of life. The more money a product brings in means the more awesomeness we can get as fans!

Now let’s cross our fingers for a sequel/remake/reboot and that the Gremlins hype train gets started again. I have reached out to Warner Bros to find out any more details that might be offered regarding other upcoming Gremlin-centric treats,  and I will be sure to get you any information as soon as possible!

What do YOU want to see in a 30th anniversary special edition? Or What do you want to see this year for gremlins? (I heard there is a pretty neato fan book coming soon….stay tuned……)
