Since the 1980s comedy favorite Big starring Tom Hanks (who just hosted a great episode of Saturday Night Live) has already been turned into a musical, it only makes sense that the female-centric successor 13 Going On 30 gets the same treatment.

Last night Tom Hanks hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time in 10 years, and the energy he brought to the show certainly elevated the writing and cast from their misstep of an episode last weekend with Emily Blunt. Honestly, I thought there was only one truly bad sketch the entire night, and it wasn’t even downright awful. This actually might be the best episode of the first four to kick off the season.
Find out the best and worst sketches from last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live below.

As if Dwayne Johnson weren’t already busy enough with his own TV show Ballers, not to mention the two dozen or so movies he has in various stages of production and development, he’s adding another project to his roster.
The Fast and Furious franchise star will be returning to his roots in the wrestling world by teaming with Will Ferrell to produce a comedy series set behind the scenes of a fictional wrestling organization. The concept of the show is actually inspired by the real-life experiences shared by the former wrestler who was known as The Rock and Brian Gewirtz, who had no experience in the wrestling world before he went on to become the head writer at WWE.

Even though we won’t see Doctor Strange until November 4th here in the United States, the trailers have already indicated that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will quickly become a master of the mystical arts, despite the fact that he doesn’t really believe in all that spiritual nonsense at first. However, it appears some wires got crossed and Jimmy Kimmel thought Doctor Strange was just a magician who could entertain at a kid’s birthday party. While Strange does his best to put on a good show for the kids, he doesn’t really know how to deal with them properly.
See what happens when Jimmy Kimmel hires Doctor Strange after the jump. Read More »

Even though Scott Pilgrim vs the World was praised highly by critics, resulting in an 81% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film was a disappointment at the box office for Universal Pictures. After costing $60 million to make, the movie only made just over $47 million worldwide. The film has become a bit of a cult classic, and it’s found a decent sized audience on home video, but it deserves so much more attention than it’s gotten, if only because it’s evidence of Edgar Wright’s skills as a masterful and economical filmmaker.
A new video essay examines an easily overlooked element of the graphic novel film adaptation: the transitions. If a film is directed and edited properly, each scene moves seamlessly from one into the next and you may not even notice. The Scott Pilgrim vs the World transitions are some of the most efficient and meticulously planned, so much that you maybe didn’t realize how many of them happen in a short span of screentime.

Living with an ailment than keeps you confined to a wheelchair most of the time when you venture out of the house is undoubtedly difficult. But luckily, a nine year old boy named Jeremy with spina bifida has some spectacular parents who make him feel like the coolest kid on the block when heading out into the neighborhood on Halloween.
You might remember a story in Star Wars Bits last year where a father turned his son’s wheelchair into a snowspeeder from The Empire Strikes Back. The flaps even moved, and the laser canons shot glowing NERF darts. That was Jeremy in that snowspeeder. Now his father has done something magical again by turning his son’s wheelchair into the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters. Read More »
Ghostbusters just arrived on home video last week, and it came with the extended cut of the film that wasn’t seen in theaters. Word on the street is that the extra 15 minutes put back into the movie actually fixes many of the plot holes that remained in the theatrical cut, and it just might be worth watching. It probably won’t change the minds of those who flat out hated the theatrical cut already, but there you have it.
Now that the film is on home video, some of the outtakes are making their way online. There are actually two gag reels and six alternate take reels available in the special features, showing that Paul Feig shot a lot of footage for this movie. They’re all worth watching for some laughs, but easily the best one out of all of them are Kate McKinnon‘s Ghostbusters outtakes. They’re wacky, wonderful and just pure improvisational magic. Watch them below! Read More »
James Corden has plenty of fun with “Carpool Karaoke” over on The Late Late Show at CBS. In fact, people love it so much that Apple Music ordered an entire TV series based on the premise. However, my personal favorite gag of James Corden’s is when he gets a big movie star to reenact their entire filmography in just a few minutes. Tom Hanks did it in eight minutes, Matt Damon did it in seven minutes and Arnold Schwarzenegger did it in six minutes. Now it’s Tom Cruise‘s turn, and this one takes the longest yet.
Watch almost all the Tom Cruise movies reenacted in just 9 minutes after the jump, and there just might be a cameo from one of Tom Cruise’s former co-stars. Read More »

The mere existence of Death Race 2050 is going to confuse a few people and I’d be lying if I said that didn’t delight me just a little bit. This is the direct sequel to producer Roger Corman‘s schlocky 1975 film Death Race 2000, ignoring Paul W.S. Anderson’s 2008 remake Death Race and its two direct-to-video sequels, Death Race 2 and Death Race 3: Inferno. Anyone who only knows this series from the more grim and serious-minded (but not exactly serious) remake series may get whiplash from the new Death Race 2050 trailer, which harkens back to the tone of the original movie in a big way.
