During the 90s, there was an abundance of family friendly sports movies that came from Disney. Sadly, the House of Mouse doesn’t really make movies like that anymore, so today’s generations are still enjoying the likes of movies such as The Mighty Ducks, Angels in the Outfield, Cool Runnings, The Big Green and more. This is all thanks to children of the 90s having kids of their own, and they were likely pretty excited when one of these beloved teams showed up at a real sporting event.
During a recent Anaheim Ducks game, there was a mini Mighty Ducks cast reunion from both the original Mighty Ducks and D2: The Mighty Ducks, and they all even wore jerseys featuring the name of their peewee hockey characters from the Disney sports franchise. Find out who showed up for the Mighty Ducks cast reunion below. Read More »
The Predator is available on home video, which means fans are starting to notice certain details they missed the first time around. One of those details includes an Easter egg referencing Jean-Claude Van Damme‘s original involvement in the movie as the film’s titular jungle stalking creature.
That’s right, the legendary JCVD was originally the man who was meant to be in the creature suit as the titular alien hunter in Predator, but the creature design ended up being drastically changed after the suit ended up looking positively terrible. We know that because of behind the scenes footage revealed the original suits used on set, and one of those suits used for visual effects reference ended up as a The Predator Easter egg. Read More »
It’s been 25 years since Mrs. Doubtfire hit theaters, introducing us to Robin Williams as a hip old granny who can hip hop, bee bop, dance till you drop, and yo yo make a wicked cup of cocoa. Sadly, Robin Williams is no longer with us to celebrate the milestone anniversary of one of the most beloved comedies of the ’90s, but some of the other cast members still took the time to get together.
It appears Mrs. Doubtfire co-star Pierce Brosnan has done a fine job keeping in touch with his step-children from the movie, and a new photo shows him recently reunited with child stars Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence and Mara Wilson, who are now all grown up.

Rocky is not just one of the greatest sports movies of all time, but one of the greatest films ever made. Period.
But if there’s one thing about the Rocky that wasn’t all that great, it was the original poster. Even though it features the great tagline “His whole life was a million-to-one shot,” the black and white poster only featured Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) and Adrian (Talia Shire) walking with their backs to us. Or there’s also the black and white one sheet featuring Rocky with his arms raised at the top of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is an iconic image, but it’s not exactly a great poster.
However, before those became the official Rocky posters, there was an awesome illustrated poster created by artist Tom Jung, and Sylvester Stallone has just revealed it to the public for the first time. Check out the original Rocky movie poster below. Read More »
Around the time the cast of Thor: Ragnarok was making the publicity rounds for the Marvel Studios sequel, cast member Tessa Thompson revealed that she and the rest of the female stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe talked to Kevin Feige about a possible all-female superhero team-up movie. Tessa Thompson explained:
“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes? Like all of them?'”
Kevin Feige quickly agreed to this idea, but we’ll be waiting at least a few years before that movie gets off the ground. In the meantime, we can imagine what it might be like with a new photo of almost all the Marvel Cinematic Universe actresses together for the first time ever. Read More »

Blade Runner 2049 is hitting theaters this week, and the early buzz for the sequel 35 years in the making is off the charts, with some reactions saying that it just might be better than its 1982 predecessor. Fans will have to judge for themselves in a few days.
In the meantime, in case you haven’t heard, there’s an amusing story about an incident that happened during production. During one particular scene, Harrison Ford is meant to punch Ryan Gosling. Since this is a movie we’re talking about, that kind of stuff is supposed to be faked. But one take for this scene went wrong. On the set of Blade Runner 2049, Harrison Ford punched Ryan Gosling for real, and thankfully there’s glorious photographic proof for us to see it happen. Read More »
If you don’t love Almost Famous as much as most of the staff of /Film does, then you might not know that the original title for the film was Untitled. If you watch “The Bootleg Cut” (or director’s cut) that was released on DVD back in 2001 and re-released on Blu-ray in 2011, you’ll see the real title appear, as it was preferred by director Cameron Crowe (who is the one doing the handwritten opening credits as well).
Before the title Almost Famous was settled upon, there was a time when Cameron Crowe was trying to figure out what else he could call the movie, since Untitled was not the most desirable name for the studio to sell. One person who tried to help Cameron Crowe figure out a satisfying alternate title was supporting star Jimmy Fallon, and the director recently revealed the full list of options he was presented with by the man who would go on to host The Tonight Show.

Tonight brings the highly anticipated continuance of the third season of Rick and Morty after the season premiere caught everyone off guard on April Fools’ Day earlier this year. And just in time for the return of the Adult Swim animated series, co-creator Justin Roiland, who also voices both of the title characters, got a special package from McDonald’s.
If you watched the first episode of the third season, then you know that Rick revealed to Morty that his life’s goal is to get back the limited edition Szechuan sauce that McDonald’s released as a cross-promotion for the release of Disney’s animated movie Mulan. Since then, there have been rumblings that McDonald’s might actually bring it back, and Roiland himself said the fast food chain promised to send him a batch of it in the near future, after he himself made some desperate attempts to track it down himself. Well, the future is now. Justin Roiland has received McDonald’s Szechuan sauce. See it in all its glory below. Read More »
