Fans have been waiting years for The Wonder Years to make it back into their homes. Since ending its run in 1993, the show played in reruns and finally appeared on Netflix last year. But even so, the original episodes with the original music have never made it to the DVD format. That changed recently when StarVista announced they’d be releasing the series the way it was intended in late 2014.
Since then, work on the set has apparently continued as several of the show’s original stars – Fred Savage, Josh Saviano, Danica McKellar and Jason Hervey – took to social media Wednesday to post photos of a Wonder Years reunion. Check those out below. Read More »

It’s no secret Cameron Crowe had problems giving his 2000 semi-autobiographical film a title. At one point it was actually called Untitled, a clever nod to the musical story held within, as well as an admission of defeat. The studio wouldn’t let that fly, so Crowe went through many different titles before settling on Almost Famous. And it’s a perfect title.
For a contribution to the 300th issue of Empire Magazine, Crowe dug up the original notebook pages where he brainstormed all kinds of different titles for the movie, much like William Miller does during the credits of the film. Check out Cameron Crowe’s alternate Almost Famous titles below. Read More »

Tuesday’s Star Wars Episode VII casting announcement made international headlines. The world stopped and looked at the photo posted on Star Wars.com featuring returning cast members like Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher and new additions like John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.

Things were a tad different in 1975 when the cast for a film then called The Star Wars was announced. Small blurbs in Box Office Magazine, the LA Times and Variety revealed to the world little known actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher were going to be in an ambitious sci-fi film from the guy who did American Graffiti.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences dug deep into their archives and posted those original Star Wars casting announcements online. Check them out below. Read More »

The passing of Paul Walker was a tragedy felt by many, but no one felt it more keenly than his family. Walker left behind a daughter, siblings and many others who loved him more than any fan ever could. Last week, news broke that two of Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, would be given a rare opportunity to pay tribute to their brother by joining the cast of Fast and Furious 7 as stand-ins for Paul. Now, co-star Vin Diesel posted a photo of Paul’s brothers from the set, and it’s pretty obvious this tribute is going to work. Read More »
Any good director will tell you they make a movie three times. The script, the shooting and the editing. But there’s a fourth time too, and that’s the projection. When filmmakers finish a film, most simply let it go out into the world, allowing legions of projectionists with varying levels of experience to dictate how an audience sees their movie.
However, some filmmakers take control of that process too and the latest example is Wes Anderson. Anderson had Fox Searchlight include a specific set of projection instructions with each and every print/DCP of his wonderful new film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and you can see the image below.
