This Christmas, the collective entity of /Film pooled their efforts together to present this gift. Earlier this week, I polled all our writers and editors for their top ten holiday films of all time. I then gave each film on each list a 1 to 10 ranking. 10 points for first place, 1 point for 10th place, and added up the results. What were the results? Pretty predictable, if you ask me, but fun nevertheless.
Still, there were plenty of great movies on the list and weird subplots to explore. For example, only two of us put the same film number one, and it just so happens to be our overall top pick. However, another writer hasn’t even seen that movie. (Until late last night, as it turns out.) Which film is it? And what did it beat out?

The holidays are here and that means tons of people are going to watch Frank Capra‘s iconic film, It’s A Wonderful Life. Starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, this fantasy tale is a staple of the season and Dark Hall Mansion has decided to pay tribute in the best way possible. They’ve hired artist Laurent Durieux to do an officially licensed poster for the film, which will go on sale as a timed edition beginning Friday December 19 through December 22. There will also be more limited variant editions on paper, foil and wood. Below, see /Film’s exclusive reveal of the beautiful It’s a Wonderful Life posters and read all the details. Read More »

Briefly: The internet got really upset earlier this week when a couple of independent producers announced that they would be moving forward with It’s a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, the sequel no one but the writer and producers want, with hopes to release the film in 2015.
Turns out no one was more upset than Paramount, which owns distribution and sequel rights to the film. Read More »
UPDATE: A pitch trailer for this film was found on YouTube. Check it out below.
That rumbling you feel is the rising tempers of film fans all over the globe. But the holidays are approaching, and maybe we should learn to forgive. That’s the only way to process the wild news that a sequel to Frank Capra‘s 1946 film It’s A Wonderful Life is now in the works.
The tentatively titled It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, written by Bob Farnsworth and Martha Bolton, follows the angel of George Bailey’s daughter Zuzu (Karolyn Grimes, who’ll reprise the role) as she teaches Bailey’s evil grandson (also named George Bailey) how different the world would have been if he’d never been born. Producers are currently looking at directors and hope to shoot the $25-$35 million film in Louisiana early next year for a Holiday 2015 release. Read More »
