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.
Leave it to Vin Diesel to bring us all the breaking news this weekend. Yesterday, the actor posted a photo on Facebook of himself with a statue of Groot from 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' confirming what we already pretty much knew about his part in the film. Tonight, the actor brings us official word on the anticipated release date switch of 'Fast and Furious 7,' which has now sped into a 2015 slot.
While we wait patiently for more sneak peeks at Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' the always reliable Vin Diesel has taken to his awesome Facebook page with a little somethin' somethin' for anxious fans to help make the wait go by a little easier. In a new pic posted this afternoon, the star poses with his alter ego from the film, the superhero Groot, and we gotta say, this would make a pretty adorable greeting card.
A second trailer for Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' has debuted and this one is far more character-driven, giving us a who's who of the incredible line-up Anderson has collected for his upcoming film. It might be his greatest ensemble cast to date, with previous collaborators and newcomers in an exotic, elaborate setting that rivals 'The Darjeeling Limited.' Welcome to 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'!
Lionsgate has just dropped the official first teaser for 'The Expendables 3,' and the gang's all here! Actually, there's even more gang to go around this time out, as every new sequel seems to just pack on increasingly awesome star power -- Harrison Ford, anyone? That's right, Indiana Jones and Han Solo himself has signed up for the action and you can see him alongside the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in this amazing line-up!
Warner Bros. has apparently looked at its DVD shelf and randomly selected '60s TV series 'Gilligan's Island' as the next property to get the big-screen modernization. The studio has chosen to polish off the property and give it a go with 'Jobs' and 'Book of Mormon' star Josh Gad, who will co-write and star in the film adaptation. And it should be a pretty easy, paint-by-numbers job since the roles and plot are all spelled out in the theme song.
We're all pretty excited about Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' especially after the closing credits tag at the end of 'Thor: The Dark World,' featuring Benicio Del Toro's mysterious Collector character -- but the character we're most intrigued about is, of course, Rocket Raccoon. The hero is being voiced by Bradley Cooper, and while we've gotten a peek at what he'll look like in the film, we still have no idea what he'll sound like. But now we're getting some hints as Cooper himself recently opened up about voicing the character.
Following the premiere of the first official trailer for Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah,' we're starting to see alternate versions -- like this international trailer -- pop up. The one above features some new footage sprinkled throughout stuff we've previously seen before. What we have seen already is stunning, and the new imagery is intriguing, like an earlier shot of violence and a couple of additional wide shots of large groups of people descending on the ark itself.
While we patiently await Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' we've got some potentially exciting news courtesy of the Weinstein Company -- there may be even more 'Sin City' stories in our near future. Along with the upcoming sequel, Bob Weinstein says a television series is also in development. Hopefully we won't have to wait several years to see the results of this project as well.
It is with heavy hearts that we bring you this tragic news at the end of the holiday weekend -- 'Fast and Furious' star Paul Walker has passed away at the age of 40. Walker, who was working on 'Fast and Furious 7' with Vin Diesel and director James Wan, was killed in a car explosion in California on Saturday afternoon.
