Longer, darker and closer to what came before, the extended version of Batman Forever sounds interesting at the least...
Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever was a divisive movie, to say the least, and one that we’ve debated the merits of before on this site. But even those of us who like the film (this writer included) would be quick to admit that it’s nowhere near the brilliance of the preceding brace of Bat-movies from Tim Burton.
It’s intriguing to hear, then, that the original cut of Batman Forever weighed in at 2 hours 40 minutes. That’s 38 minutes of extra footage that never made it into cinemas; enough missing minutes to significantly alter the film. Would the original version of Batman Forever have garnered more love?

Please sit down. Thank you. I love you all. You'll have to forgive me. I've lost my voice in screaming and lamentation this weekend. And I have lost my mind sometime earlier this year, so I have to read.
Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press. Just to pick up on what Hugh Laurie said: You and all of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press.

Meryl Streep is feeling extra grateful.
The 67-year-old Florence Foster Jenkins star, who was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, took the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday to accept the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
Streep, who has been nominated for a Golden Globe 30 times throughout her career, the most of any man or woman in all film and television categories combined, delivered a speech that was moving, inspiring and endearing.
"There was one performance this year that stunned me," Steep said while accepting her lifetime achievement award, seemingly shading President-elect Donald Trump without directly using his name. "It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good, there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made it's intended audience laugh, and show their »

Everyone talks about Meryl Streep’s record-setting number of Academy Award nominations, but perhaps even more impressive is the number of Golden Globe Award nominations she’s received: 30, as of this year, with her latest nod for Florence Foster Jenkins.
In fact, the Hollywood Foreign Press seems to be so enamored with Streep that they’ll give her a nomination for pretty much anything (even Mamma Mia!). And now, they’re finally giving her the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures.

And as we settle in 2017, it’s time to look ahead at all those upcoming moments that will have you saying, “I remember when…”
Here’s a brief look at our favorite TV and film milestones of 2017:
While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.
