Thirty-foot high shoulder pads!

First it was the sixties that were in vogue, with remakes of films like The Italian Job and Get Carter. Then it was the 70s, with Starsky and Hutch and The Dukes of Hazzard. Then along came The A-Team, and we knew that the age of cinema revivalism had reached the 80s.

And they're just getting started. Next up comes the movie version of perhaps the most 80's of 80's TV series, Dynasty.

Having said that, Dynasty the movie is going to cash in on Mad Men 60s-mania (it all goes round in circles) as well as 80's revivalism. 'We want to go back to the beginning with these characters and use the film to trace their roots,' says creator Esther Shapiro. 'We're taking Blake Carrington back to his young manhood and when he met Alexis, and setting the movie in the Mad Men-era of the 1960s.'

We reckon they should go a step further and make it a full-blown Mad Men crossover. Who wouldn't pay to see Blake Carrington and Don Draper having a fight?
