Here are just a few noteworthy behind-the-scenes facts about the making of 1946's Christmas classic, It's A Wonderful Life.
Love Life has gone through a few twists and turns in its short, one-season life on HBO Max, but this latest development is clearly the most delightful. Variety is reporting that The Good Place star William Jackson Harper has been cast as the show's new protagonist in season 2. Peeps chili all around! Created by Sam Boyd, Love Life debuted with an intriguing concept: Each episode would cover one full relationship, beginning to end, in the life of New Yorker Darby (Anna Kendrick), with the finale revealing which person was the actual love of her life. It's …
While Star Wars has experienced a number of fan favorite characters since the series first launched in 1977 with Episode IV: A New Hope, I think we can all agree the reaction to The Child (Baby Yoda) in the first season of The Mandalorian was another level. Not only did the character enchant fans of all ages, he probably added a billion dollars to Disney’s bottom line due to fans wanting to buy the merchandise featuring the mysterious character. While a lot of the toys, t-shirts, and other products have been cool, for me the best thing that …
It's been nearly five years since the great David Bowie left this mortal coil, so you just knew a Bowie movie was inevitable, but at least the first trailer for Stardust makes it look like a classy enough affair rather than a garish Hollywood biopic. The indie film stars Johnny Flynn (Emma.) as a young David Bowie, who finds himself at a crossroads in 1971 upon being sent to America to promote his newest record, The Man Who Sold the World. Leaving behind his pregnant wife Angie (Jena Malone), Bowie and his band embark on a makeshift coast-to-…
With fans now having had their first look at Tom Holland as Nathan Drake in the long-awaited Uncharted movie, let's look back at other actors who have played iconic video game characters in live-action adaptations.
Netflix has released the official trailer for the stirring Italian drama The Life Ahead. Adapted from author Romain Gary's 1986 novel The Life Before Us, director Edoardo Ponti and screenwriter Ugo Chiti breathe life into this timely and poignant story, guiding the performances of newcomer Ibrahima Gueye and Italian screen legend Sophia Loren as the movie's central duo. The trailer for The Life Ahead takes us to a seaside town in Italy and introduces us to Momo (Gueye), a young boy who is dropped off at the home of Madame Rosa (Loren). Momo is caught up in a …
The events on the paramount lot looked like a movie but they were very real.
Netflix debuted the trailer for the upcoming anthology series Social Distance, following several different characters as they deal with life in isolation during the pandemic and try to stay in touch with their friends and loved ones without going completely stir crazy. And while it doesn’t look quite as insufferable as HBO’s extremely misguided Coastal Elites, I have to say that I remain firmly and resolutely uninterested in any movie or TV show about living through the COVID-19 pandemic, seeing as how I am currently still living in the COVID-19 pandemic. From Orange is the New …
The official trailer for director R.J. Cutler's new documentary, Belushi, leads with a killer sentiment from the subject of the documentary: "I'd rather be an anarchist than a professional." The anarchist-wannabe in question is the late John Belushi, whose life and legacy will be the subject of Cutler's documentary, coming to Showtime in November. Belushi's imprint on the comedy world is deep despite his relatively brief run in the spotlight before his untimely death at age 33 in 1982. With just 13 movie and TV credits to his name, including Saturday Night Live, Animal …
Don’t expect the original Jurassic Park cast members to have mere cameos in the upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion. The third movie in the Jurassic World franchise and the sixth Jurassic movie overall was one of the first films to begin or resume production during the pandemic we’re all living through, as the Universal Pictures film installed new safety protocols to allow for shooting in the age of COVID-19. But while we know that actors Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum are all returning for the film, co-writer/director Colin Trevorrow teases that their involvement is …
