It's been a while since we reported anything new about the 'Gremlins' reboot over at Warner Bros., but apparently someone's been feeding the execs over there after midnight because sources say it's not only still happening -- it's been put on the fast track. Hide your Mogwais, the 'Gremlins' are coming.
If Hollywood can count on anything, it's nostalgia, which is why it shouldn't be a surprise that there's a 'Goonies' sequel on the way -- yes, even 28 years later. Director Richard Donner is planning to reunite the original cast for a sequel to the cult classic film because Goonies never say die and all that.
Released in 1992, 'Sister Act' starred Whoopi Goldberg as a lounge singer from Reno, put in protective custody and forced to stay at a convent, where she must pretend to be a nun to evade a dangerous mob boss. The film was a smash hit and inspired a sequel, released the following year, and a musical that went on to debut on Broadway in 2011. 22 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved classic comedy and see what they're up to now.
In case you didn't know by now (or if your mom didn't make it a point to tell you, since it's like, one of the only facts she probably prides herself on knowing about actors), Hugh Jackman has some musical theater chops. Oh, you didn't see 'Les Miserables'? The 'Wolverine' and 'X-Men' star recently took that talent to BBC Radio 1 to perform a cover of the 'Les Mis' song "Who Am I," repurposed with lyrics about his on-screen alter ego, Wolverine, and the results are, well, okay, they're pretty charming.
In what had become an inevitability at this point with the insanely rising box office numbers, Disney's smash hit animated film 'Frozen' has now become the highest grossing animated film of all time, usurping former crown holder 'Toy Story 3,' which held the title since 2010. And judging by these numbers and the love for the film, it doesn't look like 'Frozen' is going to "Let It Go" so easily.
While we're all gearing up for the 2014 Academy Awards, there's a different sort of long-standing awards tradition that took place over the weekend: the Razzie Awards, which honors the best of the worst in film in each year. And this year M. Night Shyamalan and Will Smith's 'After Earth' and the celeb-heavy ensemble anthology comedy 'Movie 43' took home the most prizes with three awards each.
With Seth MacFarlane's 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' hitting theaters relatively soon, the director is wasting no time getting to work on 'Ted 2,' the follow-up to his live-action directorial debut featuring Mark Wahlberg and MacFarlane himself as the voice of the lovable, foulmouthed teddy bear. Today brings news that the film has made its latest casting acquisition, and MacFarlane is keeping things close to home: Amanda Seyfried, who also stars in 'A Million Ways,' signed on for the female lead in 'Ted 2.'
Shia LaBeouf continued his insane public antics this weekend at the German premiere of Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac,' appearing with a paper bag on his head and refusing to show his face to photographers snapping pictures -- and that's not all. The actor also plagiarized (yet again) part of a speech before storming out of the press conference for the film after the very first question. Guys, Shia really isn't famous anymore -- haven't you heard?
It brings us great sadness to report this news on the first day of the New Year -- James Avery, the beloved actor who portrayed Uncle Phil on the hit '90s sitcom 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,' has passed away at the age of 65. Avery, who passed away late last night in Los Angeles, was an actor known for his warmth, and continued to appear on many TV shows over the years after 'Fresh Prince' concluded.
Thanks to the millions of people who tuned into, tweeted, and confused their moms on Facebook about 'Sharknado,' SyFy is continuing to ride the shark schlock horror wave with 'Avalanche Sharks,' which is exactly what it sounds like. But in case you need more of an explanation, you can watch this trailer for the upcoming "film," which continues SyFy's tradition of featuring purposely bad movies for those who find actual movies to be just a bit too demanding of their intellectual faculties.
Like the puzzling "adaptation" of 'What to Expect When You're Expecting,' long-running inspirational book series 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' will now also become a film (and possible TV series), for all the moms out there who are looking for a new, unoffensive and wholesome movie to cry at.
