Bill and Ted are making a most bodacious return to theaters this year. One of the byproducts of that are media tie-ins and such that are just unfortunately part of franchise movie-making more than ever. One would hope they would avoid this type of thing as much as possible for Bill and Ted, even though […]
With the imminent release of Paramount's live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film, star Ben Schwartz commemorated Groundhog Day (February 2nd) with its prickly cousin, the hedgehog. Handling the live animal in the Tweeted video, the voice of Sonic teased fans with cuddly offerings for those who buy tickets to see the film. Promoting "Sonic" Obviously, for […]
Jeep is tapping into 90's nostalgia for what looks like their Super Bowl ad, recruiting some of the cast from modern comedy classic Groundhog Day – including star Bill Murray. The cast revisited Woodstock Square and other parts of McHenry County, Illinois – where director Harold Ramis originally shot parts of the original 1993 film, […]
While you'll never be as cool as Bill Murray, you can live as his character's son in Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son thanks to Sony's virtual reality experience at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. In the 1993 original Harold Ramis-directed comedy Groundhog Day, Murray played Phil Connors, a weatherman who can't travel past his February […]
Netflix's hit comedy-drama series Russian Doll is returning – no, not like Nadia's "returning": the Natasha Lyonne-starrer is returning to the streaming service for a second season. Lyonne plays Nadia, a snarky New Yorker who keeps getting killed on the night of her 37th birthday and restarting her day. Over an endless number of restarts, […]
Groundhog Day has come and gone, Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow this year, and LOGO did their annual all-day marathon of the classic Bill Murray-starring Harold Ramis-directed comedy, Groundhog Day. Just this morning, SONY announced a sequel to the film, but not in the way you think. Apparently Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son will be a […]
Well, it's Groundhog Day. Again. And all across the country, folks made jokes about either being stuck in time loops, or what Punxsutawney Phil NOT seeing his shadow means for 2019. Meanwhile in Arizona, "A Song Of Ice and Fire" author George R. R. Martin emerged from his den. Happy Groundhogs Day! I too have emerged from […]
Tequila Works has released a teaser trailer for a brand new PSVR game on the way called Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son. The game, as you might suspect, is a video game sequel to the 1993 Bill Murray film Groundhog Day. You take up the role of Phil Connors Jr., who like his father before him, winds […]
[Editor's Note: In this series, Madeline Potts (a bonafide millennial) watches all the "old" movies she never watched as a kid. From Star Wars (we know, we were shocked someone hasn't seen it, too) to campy sci-fi movies from the '70s- she's going to take it all on.] In this installment, to celebrate the day that […]
The Flash will soon be speeding his way into the world of the Lego DC Super Heroes, and it's heading straight to home video release. Damn! They really are cutting the budgets after Justice League flopped, huh? The movie, which appears to ape the plot of Groundhog Day, sees Reverse Flash trapping Flash in a […]
One of the more rehashed film tropes that has been in play in recent years it that of the protagonist reliving the same day repeatedly. The classic Bill Murray film, Groundhog Day was the originator (the short film 12:01pm notwithstanding) of the time-loop storyline and remains the gold standard. Most are pale comparisons, in […]
I find it somewhat bittersweet, with bitter outweighing the sweet, to note that Groundhog Day is on sale right now.
Goodbye, Mr. Ramis, and thank you.
