Released in 1988, 'Scrooged' was a darkly comedic take on Charles Dickens' classic 'A Christmas Carol,' starring Bill Murray in the Ebenezer Scrooge role as Frank Cross, a cynical TV executive alienated from his family and unable to find real happiness. Struggling to put together a live production of 'A Christmas Carol' on Christmas Eve, Frank finds that his real life begins to resemble the story he's producing as three ghosts visit him throughout the evening to try and get him to change his ways before it's too late.
The film took Murray from battling ghosts in 'Ghostbusters' to learning lessons from them, and over time it's become a holiday comedy classic. 25 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
Sad news today, as legendary film and stage actor Peter O'Toole has passed away in London at the age of 81. The Irish actor, who just announced his retirement last year, was known for his work in films like 'Lawrence of Arabia,' 'The Lion in Winter,' 'Goodbye Mr. Chips,' and the 2006 film 'Venus,' for which he was nominated for an Academy Award.
Although they're still searching for their cast and the script is being reworked, we can report a bit of wonderfully optimistic news: some serious work has reportedly begun on J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7' -- namely, a very important spacecraft has already been put together. If what we've learned is true, the Millennium Falcon has been built and is ready for take off!
Seems there is no moratorium on sequels as, just in time for the holidays, comes news that the Jimmy Stewart classic 'It's a Wonderful Life' is getting a sequel. Nope, not a remake, but a sequel, since apparently we didn't get the full story the first time around. The new film, titled 'It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story' (original!) will follow the grandson of Stewart's character.
There's been a lot of speculation over whether J.J. Abrams and Disney could reach an agreement over the release date of 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' with Abrams recently scrapping Michael Arndt's script to rework the story and characters. But now we have official confirmation that the latest entry in the 'Star Wars' franchise will indeed be released on December 18, 2015, putting it right up against Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft.'
Sometimes it can be hard to crack Hollywood when you're an up and coming actor. You've got to play the game -- or in this case, the game show. Many of your favorite actors and actresses were guests on classic game shows before they hit the big time and became household names
Everyone remembers the scene in 'Big' when Tom Hanks plays "Chopsticks" on the novelty piano with just his feet. Hanks recently appeared on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' to relive the magic with the host, but then we got a special surprise: Sandra Bullock, who was on hand to promote 'Gravity,' joined in the fun. And even more impressive: Bullock can play "Chopsticks" in high heels!
In an inspired bit of cross-promotion, Will Ferrell has gotten into character as Ron Burgundy to sell the new 2014 Dodge Durango. With his trademark absurd wit and charm, Burgundy promotes both the upcoming 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' and the shiny new Dodge vehicle in a series of commercials that make us wish that Ron Burgundy would star in every TV ad.
The upcoming film 'The Maze Runner,' based on the Young Adult novel of the same name by James Dashner, has revealed the first set of official photos featuring Dylan O'Brien and Kaya Scoledario -- and it looks kind of like 'Survivor' meets 'The Hunger Games,' but with an elevator.
