Amid all the celebrations and laughter during Sunday night's 2014 Emmy Awards, there was one larger-than-life presence that was sorely missed: the late, great Robin Williams. And following the annual In Memoriam segment to honor the famous faces we've lost over the last year, Billy Crystal took the stage to honor his longtime friend and fellow comedian in a moving and heartfelt tribute.
Don Pardo, the man who introduced the 'SNL' lineup every week since 1975, has sadly passed away at the age of 96. Pardo also lent his voice to radio, sports, game shows, and commercials over the course of his incredibly long-running career, but we'll always remember him best for that wonderful phrase: "It's 'Saturday Night Live!'"
Lauren Bacall, the legendary actress who gave us memorable performances in classic films like 'Key Largo' and 'How to Marry a Millionaire,' has sadly passed away at the age of 89. A talented woman who appeared in many films in the Golden Age of Hollywood, Bacall was a true silver screen icon.
In a completely tragic and unfathomable turn of events, beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams has died at the age of 63. Williams was found in his home in California earlier today, as confirmed by the Marin County Sheriff's department.
Over the weekend it was announced that Paul Feig is in negotiations to direct an all-female version of ‘Ghostbusters 3,’ which is the first bit of news to get us seriously interested since Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s names were briefly attached earlier this year. Feig, who also brought us ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Heat,’ has given us some hilarious and truly great female-driven films. By making the new ‘Ghostbusters’ women, this project has so much more potential because there are so many insanely funny and talented women out there. We couldn’t help but put together a list of who we think should star in an all-female ‘Ghostbusters 3.’
You didn't think Batman could turn 75 without getting a little love from the people at Mondo, did you? The purveyors of pop culture-inspired boutique art are going to celebrate 75 years of Batman in a big way, and they're kicking things off this week at Comic-Con 2014 with an exclusive Joker poster.
It is with great sadness that we bring you the news that Elaine Stritch, the iconic actress of Broadway, film and television has passed away at the age of 89. Stritch, who was nominated for many Tony and Emmy awards and won three of the latter, was known best in recent years for her role as Colleen Donaghy, mother of Jack, on '30 Rock.'
It's been about four years since Guillermo del Toro and Disney announced that they were developing a film based on 'The Haunted Mansion,' the classic Disney theme park attraction, but today the director has offered an update on the long-gestating project -- and the good news is that it's definitely still happening.
This Labor Day weekend, for one week only, you can see the 1984 comedy classic 'Ghostbusters' on the big screen, digitally restored in all its slimy, Stay-Puft glory. And now Sony has delivered a special 30th anniversary trailer for the film, which will also be getting a special Blu-ray re-release. Hail Gozer!
It seems like kind of a no-brainer at this point, but after a tease earlier this year that J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7' may be shooting in IMAX, it was confirmed today that this is definitely the case. And along with that cool bit of nerd-friendly news, we've got some details on the 'Star Wars' presence at Comic-Con 2014.
