Try this. Two pretty famous actresses here, though it's a bit hard to make them out from afar (what, you thought it would be easy?). If you can identify either or both of them, or even the setting, you'll be that much closer:

It was the Spanish DVD by Divisa Editorial. To add insult to injury, in the extra features they included a short clip of a sequence with the original (FAR FAR superior) score. Why the hell not in the main feature? :(

It's 23:38 right now, so I resorted to Google for once, rather than a snapshot in VLC.
This next one features the main character in his trademark clothing, so if you know the franchise, you should get this fairly easy.

Well back from a very long vacation....let me see if I can take a stab at it. Debuted on the playstation console and judging by the picture it is based off that game....hmm, I would have to say "Yakuza". However, I think the actual title is "Like A Dragon" here in the states! :D

All too easy for a Shakespearean like me...that's a still from Elizabeth I, starring Helen Mirren. Jeremy Irons as an older version of Joseph Fiennes -- in other words, her (possibly) one great love, Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester.

The guy on the right, Hugh Dancy, is Robert Devereux, the Earl of Essex, who was both a favorite of the old Elizabeth and leader of a rebellion against her. If memory serves, he was executed, and his head placed on a spike on London Bridge, the fate of traitors.

Oh, and the Shakesapearean connection? Just before the rebellion, there was a specially-commissioned performance of Shakespeare's Richard II, a play about a weak king who gets usurped. Supposedly, Elizabeth remarked on hearing about the play, "I am Richard II; know ye not that?"

Though they had to perform for Shakespeare's patron, the guy who commissioned the performance, Shakespeare's company, and Shakespeare himself, got in some trouble for doing so, and there was a question about whether he'd be executed too.

Okay, a quick one:

Name an actor who played both a major DC Comics villain and a major DC Comics supporting good guy. Both of them in live action.

Hmm, tough one...could it be Frank Langella (Skeletor, who was in some DC Comics, and Perry White)?

Dwight Fry

Nope. Both characters were originally DC characters.

Just for clarification: When you say live action, is that combine both motion pictures and/or made for television movies?

Dwight Fry
12-18-2010, 11:04 PM
In this case, both were theatrical releases.

STANKPAC
12-23-2010, 01:23 AM
Nope. Both characters were originally DC characters.

I noticed you said that both characters were originally DC characters. Does that mean they are not now within the DC universe? It's nobody from the the Batman or Superman films is it? Swamp Thing, perhaps? Another clue, maybe? LOL. :-P

Dwight Fry
12-23-2010, 01:35 AM
They were (as in they didn't come from any other medium such as action figures, cartoons or anything) and still ARE DC Comics characters. And very well known ones, both of them.

Another clue: this actor was the very first one to portray either character on screen.

Man, that was tough! I kind of had a feeling it had to be the early ones, but I didn't know them well enough to hazard a guess. I'd thought of Ray Middleton, who was the first-ever Superman, but he didn't play him in a film, just at the '39 World's Fair. Well done, STANKPAC!

Serafinowicz was in Spaced (and Shaun) with Jess, and was the voice of Darth Maul.

Kal-El
12-28-2010, 07:03 AM
She starred in Shaun of the Dead as Yvonne, old friend of Shaun and Liz. They later meet again after having assembled her own group of survivors, and one final time, when she is brought back into town on an army-truck piggyback ride.
Shaun of the Dead, of course, came from the genius minds of Nick Frost, and Simon Pegg who, as mentioned before, starred in Spaced, which effectively bridges the gap to George Lucas and his Phantom Menace, which was spoofed therein.

Kal-El
12-28-2010, 07:08 AM

Peter Serafinowicz will star in the upcoming 3D CGI film Yellow Submarine, as Paul McCartney.
Yellow Submarine is directed by Robert Zemeckis, who we all know from -and adore for- the unbelievably kick-ass out-of-this-world awesome Back to the Future trilogy, which starred Michael J. Fox.

In fact my father died in the first movie, but I was not in this movie. (I have a movie of my own).

I know it was in theaters in Spain, but maybe not in the US. Studios sell movies in packs to overseas markets, so if exhibitors want to show the big blockbuster they have to show the crap movies too. We get shit in theaters that not even Americans get to see.

But I digress, so... without checking IMDb or any reference guide, how many times did Boris Karloff play Frankenstein on the big screen?
