Robert Englund Returns as Freddy Krueger on Halloween Episode of The Goldbergs

Robert Englund has played Freddy Krueger for 34 years now, with the last time being in 2003’s Freddy Vs Jason.

SCTV Netflix Documentary Directed by Scorsese Gains Rick Moranis

It’s a week full of Rick Moranis apparently. After retiring from acting in the mid-’90s, the Canadian comedian returned to the biz (at least in voice form) on last night’s episode of ABC sitcom The Goldbergs.  As we’d reported, he was reprising his Spaceballs character Dark Helmet, the doll-playing spoof on Darth Vader. Turns out that won’t […]

Rick Moranis Returns to Acting for ‘The Goldbergs’ This Wednesday

Rick Moranis is returning to acting for The Goldbergs, something we weren’t expecting to happen. Ever.  The Canadian left showbiz back in 1997 to focus on his family, an admirable endeavor to be sure.

First Trailer For Miniature War Film, Epic

It’s Epic, has miniature proportions. Originally titled The Leaf Men, and based on William Joyce‘s book, Epic is an upcoming animated adventure film from Blue Sky, the makers of the Ice Age films and Rio. This trailer plays like a cross between The Guardians of Ga’Hoole and Avatar (by which I almost mean Ferngully), with […]

Bill Murray To Be Replaced And Peter Venkman Recast In Ghostbusters 3?

I understand it’s the case, but for reasons I’ve never seen fully explained, that the principle cast of Ghostbusters have power of veto over any sequels. As such, the long-time coming Ghostbusters 3 has been waiting for across-the-board approval for some years now, and the lone hold out, as you would expect, has been Bill […]
