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 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.
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.
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.
If you're like some of us around here, you mostly watch the Super Bowl for the hilarious commercials and the awesome new movie trailers. But there's one you won't be seeing on TV: Scarlett Johansson's Super Bowl commercial for SodaStream, which was banned from airing during the upcoming game.
Finally, after months of development, J.J. Abrams has confirmed that he's ready to move on to the next stage: this weekend at the Television Critics Association, the director confirmed that the script has been completed for 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' and that the production is now in "deep prep" on the upcoming film, which is scheduled for a December 2015 release.
Filmmaker Lance Bangs teamed up with The Creators Project over on Vice to debut this exclusive and beautiful short film, in which Bangs interviews a wealth of talented artists inspired by Spike Jonze's film 'Her.' Actresses like Charlyne Yi and Olivia Wilde are featured, as well as musician James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem and comedian Marc Maron of the WTF Podcast and 'Maron' on IFC -- all of them offering incredibly personal reactions to the film and perspectives on relationships and technology in the short, titled "Love in the Modern Age."
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 68. 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.
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.
Twenty five years later, 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.
