Mr. Mom, the 1983 Michael Keaton comedy about a man who must face the terrible fate of raising his children, is poised for a reboot. Walmart’s streaming service Vudu recently partnered with MGM to create original programming, and it looks like a Mr. Mom TV series is first on their list. This reboot will update the story from the ’80s into the 21st century.

Norm Macdonald has had a long, troubled history on television. From his days spent on Saturday Night Live as the brilliant but frequently misunderstood Weekend Update anchor in the 1990s to his consistently canceled shows like Norm, A Minute with Stan Hooper and Sports Show with Norm Macdonald, the comedian can’t seem to catch a break. But maybe that will change with Netflix.
The aptly titled Norm Macdonald Has a Show (E-I-E-I-O) finds the comedian and his sidekick Adam Eget having candid conversations with celebrity guests like David Spade, Judge Judy, David Letterman, Drew Barrymore, Lorne Michaels, M. Night Shyamalan and more. But this doesn’t look like your usual, polished, fluffy anecdote talk show from late night television. Watch the Norm Macdonald Has a Show trailer below to see what we’re dealing with. Read More »

‘Dumbo’ Trailer: Tim Burton Gives Us a Dark, But Not Too Burton-Esque, Live-Action Take on the Disney Classic

When the first strains of the haunting “Baby Mine” float over the first trailer of the live-action Dumbo, you know you’re in for some emotional damage. The animated movie that traumatized you as a kid is now a live-action film, adapted by Gothic connoisseur Tim Burton, no less. But Burton’s Disney adaptation of Dumbo surprisingly reigns back the darkness and gives us a little more of that childhood awe in the Dumbo trailer.

It’s been too long, painfully so, since Michael Keaton got to be even remotely as funny and wild on screen as he is as the title character of Beetlejuice. Keaton has mercifully had a bit of a career revival in the last handful of years, having starred in two of the last four Best Picture winners (remember Birdman and Spotlight?) as well as getting to play the villainous Vulture in last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Though that movie represented a nice reversal of the days when Keaton played the Caped Crusader, Homecoming leaned more into the longtime actor’s darker side.
So watching Beetlejuice 30 years (it hit theaters on March 30, 1988) later feels all the more shocking because it’s a bracing reminder that, even when he was playing a darker-than-life character, Michael Keaton could be as funny as he was scary.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming Honest Trailer has no problem reminding us that this is the second time the comic franchise has been rebooted this decade, not to mention honing in on the fact that this new millennial Spider-Man doesn’t ever really seem to suffer any consequences for his mistakes and ill-advised actions. Watch below! Read More »

“Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetle—” It feels like we’re stuck in that limbo between the second uttered “Beetlejuice” and the final repetition of the title character’s name that will summon the long-gestating sequel.
Still, Beetlejuice 2 continues to inch toward development: a new writer has been hired to revise the script of the project that has been a longtime resident of development hell. But without director Tim Burton or Michael Keaton confirmed to return — though they are reportedly “excited” to collaborate again — for a sequel to the 1988 supernatural cult classic, maybe it’s time to let this movie rest in peace.
