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.
As reported yesterday, 'Fast and Furious' star Paul Walker died tragically in a car crash in California at the age of 40. Walker and his co-stars were taking a Thanksgiving break from filming 'Fast and Furious 7,' which was scheduled to resume shooting next week -- but with the star's life cut short, Universal, director James Wan, and the rest of the team behind the upcoming film face an unfortunate question: how will they proceed with production on the sequel? News has broken today that shooting on the film has been delayed, but 'Fast and Furious 7' is still very much happening.
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.
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.
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.
We haven't seen much from 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' -- we know that the Dinobots will somehow be involved, and that all of our favorite transforming robots will be back to kick ass alongside Mark Wahlberg and a new cast of characters. Speaking of which, Michael Bay has offered up our first look at the humans in the film with a brand new, official image.
Known for his work in the horror genre, James Wan has stepped behind the camera for something a little more action-packed with 'Fast and Furious 7.' We've gotten a peek at some of the interesting new cars being used in the film, but now star Vin Diesel is giving us a sneak preview of his own with these new photos of his character Dom (alongside co-star Paul Walker) on the set of the sequel.
At long last, our national nightmare is over: Universal and Focus Features have found their leads for the upcoming adaptation of '50 Shades of Grey.' Dakota Johnson of 'The Social Network' has been cast as Anastasia Steele, the college student who enters into a dominant/submissive relationship with enigmatic businessman Christian Grey because fairy tales do come true, or something. Charlie Hunnam of 'Pacific Rim' and 'Sons of Anarchy' will play Christian.
The international trailer for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' has landed online, and ... it's not really different from the trailer currently playing in theaters.

Get ready for more action, thrills, and Katniss in impossibly beautiful gowns.
