14 cartoon movie spinoffs you forgot existed: The good, the bad and the just plain weird

13 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Free Willy vs cyborgs? The Mighty Ducks from outer space? The path to bringing a beloved film to the small screen isn't always a smooth one, as these oddities demonstrate.

How many of these madcap cartoon series do you remember?

Check out this amazing concept art for the abandoned Jurassic Park animation

1. Back to the Future

Back to the Future is generally considered a perfect movie trilogy, so did we really need the further adventures of Doc Brown and his family in cartoon form? Christopher Lloyd actually appeared in this series in live-action interstitials, but the animated Doc was voiced by Dan 'Homer Simpson' Castellaneta.

2. Mighty Ducks

Remember those films about the cute outcast kids who Emilio Estevez coaches into champion hockey players? How much better would it have been if they were actual ducks? Alien ducks? It made sense to someone.

3. The Real Ghostbusters

The gem in the cartoon adaptation crown, »

Ricky Gervais, are we underestimating you at Emmy Awards for 'Derek' swan song?

23 August 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Are we underestimating that rascal Ricky Gervais to win an Emmy Award for his Netflix telefilm "Derek: The Final Chapter"? Don't forget, Gervais waged a surprise attack on awards pundits back in 2007 by winning the Best Comedy Actor Emmy for the final season of "Extras" over frontrunners Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"), Steve Carell ("The Office") and Tony Shalhoub ("Monk"). So, it wouldn't be a wise move to count Gervais out this time around in his new category of Best Movie/Mini Actor. -Break- Oscars host poll: Ricky Gervais vs. Ellen DeGeneres vs. Robert Downey Jr. Gervais has legions of fans out there, as evidenced by his skyrocketing performance in our poll asking who should host the Oscars next. As of this writing, Gervais has 75% of 12,000 votes, crushing fellow contenders Robert Downey Jr. and Ellen DeGeneres.  Emmy voters may be inclined to give that darling Derek a farewel »

Ken Howard Re-Elected SAG-AFTRA President

20 August 2015 7:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ken Howard has been re-elected as SAG-AFTRA president for a two-year term following a spirited challenge by Patricia Richardson with 53.7% of the vote to Richardson’s 46.3%.

But Howard’s running mate, Jenny O’Hara, was defeated by stunt performer Jane Austin for the secretary-treasurer slot as Austin won with 52.7%. Current secretary-treasurer Amy Aquino, who had Howard’s running mate in three previous elections, opted not to seek re-election to the post.

Turnout was just under 22%, a typical rate in elections for the performer union. Of the 139,313 eligible voters mailed ballots  on July 21, a total of 30,263 voted.

Howard, 71, led the moderate Unite for Strength faction that has been in control of the performers union for the past six years. Richardson headed the self-styled progressives of the Membership First faction.

Howard became the 25th and final SAG president in 2009 and was re-elected in 2011 on a platform urging the merger of SAG and AFTRA. »

WB Drops Another Bomb: 'U.N.C.L.E.' Flops Disastrously in North America

15 August 2015 7:31 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' box office: Bigger domestic flop than expected? Before I address the box office debacle of Warner Bros.' The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I'd like remark upon the fact that 2015 has been a notable year at the North American box office. That's when the dinosaurs of Jurassic World smashed Hulk and his fellow Halloween-costumed Marvel superheroes of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And smashed them good: $636.73 million vs. $457.52 million. (See also: 'Jurassic World' beating 'The Avengers' worldwide and domestically?) At least in part for sentimental (or just downright morbid) reasons – Paul Walker's death in a car accident in late 2013 – Furious 7 has become by far the highest-grossing The Fast and the Furious movie in the U.S. and Canada: $351.03 million.

Winona Ryder is to star in 'Beetlejuice 2'. The 43-year-old actress has revealed she's been cast alongside Michael Keaton and Tim Burton in the much-discussed sequel to 1988 original, which also starred Alec Baldwin. Asked whether there was any truth to the 'Beetjuice' speculation, Winona said: ''Um, I think I can confirm it, because Tim Burton did this interview - like, it was very hush hush, top secret ... and then he was doing some press for 'Big Eyes' and he did an on-camera interview and he said, 'Oh yeah we're doing it and Winona's going to be in it,' and I was like [shocked face].''

'Beetlejuice 2': Winona Ryder Confirms Her Return as Lydia

11 August 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the original Beetlejuice hit theaters way back in 1988, die-hard fans have been demanding a sequel. In recent years, we've been getting closer than ever to Beetlejuice 2 coming to fruition, with screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith revealing back in January that the movie sequel may start filming by the end of this year. Michael Keaton has long been confirmed to come back as the title character, with Tim Burton set to direct, but we haven't heard anything definitive about his original Beetlejuice co-stars, such as Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Winona Ryder. During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, Winona Ryder confirmed that she is in fact coming back for Beetlejuice 2 as Lydia Deetz.

"I think I can confirm it because Tim Burton did this interview. It was very hush-hush, top secret, 'I don't know what may happen, I don't know,' and then he »
