20 Reasons to Love Speed, 20 Years Later

It's the best movie about a bus, and it hit theaters on June 10, 1994. Of course, it's so much more than just a bus movie. Speed is a solid action film, in case you haven't re-watched it one of the bajillion times it's aired on cable in the past two decades.

The film's stars, Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, recently spoke to Hitfix about the beloved blockbuster.

"I don't think anyone had any idea what was going to happen ... I certainly didn't feel it," Bullock told Hitfix. "I think we were sort of ridiculed a bit for being the 'low budget bomb-on-the-bus movie.' Not that I cared. I was just so happy to have a job and that I got to work with Keanu."

Dennis Hopper, who is fighting prostate cancer and dealing with a divorce, is now saddled with another burden: a $12,000-a-month payment to his estranged wife.

A judge ruled Monday that Hopper, 73, must pay Victoria Hopper $8,000 a month in spousal support and $4,000 in child support. Against the actor's wishes, the judge also ruled that Victoria can live on the Hopper compound in Venice, Calif., for the time being.

All three grown Hopper children – Marin, Ruthanna and Henry Lee – showed up in court to support their father, though they didn't speak.

Hollywood bestowed an honor upon the ailing Dennis Hopper on Friday, as the veteran Easy Rider and Blue Velvet leading man received the 2,403rd star along Hollywood Boulevard at a midday celebration in front of the landmark Egyptian Theatre.

"I love all of you,” the actor told a cheering crowd. "I just want to thank you, and that's all I can do."

Viggo Mortensen, who costarred with Hopper in 1991's The Indian Runner and 1993's Boiling Point, participated in the ceremony for the legendary rebel, 73, who appears thin from his debilitating battle with prostate cancer.

Producer Mark Canton called Hopper "the coolest guy on the planet," while Mortensen told the audience what sets Hopper apart is "his ability to instill … fearlessness … as an artist and friend."
