Produced by Universal TV
Aired on ABC for 1 season (7 episodes; 16 segments) from November 27, 1981 – January 15, 1982
James Coburn as the Host
Darkroom was a thriller anthology series, much in the vein of Night Gallery, where each story had an image to present before it began. The series was hosted by James Coburn, who introduced each story segment as a photographer in his darkroom, developing photographs and tales. The innovative aspect of this particular anthology series was that the story segments had free range to be as long or as short as the story needed to be, as long as the segments fit within the hour duration. Most episodes contained two stories, but at times there were three.
The tone of the stories presented on the series were mostly frightful tales, with grim twist endings that were enhanced with dark humor. The »

The American Film Institute’s AFI Fest opens tonight in Hollywood with the world premiere of J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year. The film stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain as a couple trying to run a business and live in New York City during 1981, which was statistically one of the city’s most violent years. This is Chandor’s first film to premiere in Los Angeles. Though the film is hoping to garner some Oscar nominations, only six of the past 14 films to open AFI Fest have gone on to receive Oscar nominations and none have been for best picture.
Of the six films to garner Oscar nominations, the only film to win an award was 2005’s Walk the Line, which resulted in Reese Witherspoon taking home the Oscar for best actress. The Johnny Cash biopic scored four other nominations, including film editing and best actor. »

It really warms our hearts when the cast of a film remain friends after the film wraps. Which is why we love these photos of the cast of D2: The Mighty Ducks, who got together Sunday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film's release. The quack attack is back, Jack! Christopher Redman posted this photo of the cast forming the film's iconic "flying V" formation on a tennis court, and Marguerite Moreau posted pics with the other cast members, now all grown up. Notably missing: Joshua Jackson, Kenan Thompson, and Emilio Estevez. But despite those absences, there doesn't appear »
In 1992 Emilio Estevez (The Breakfast Club) starred as former hockey player turned successful lawyer turned drunk driver turned peewee league coach Gordon Bombay in The Mighty Ducks – titled Champions in the U.K. – Disney’s low budget ice hockey family drama. It turned out to be a surprise hit, spawning two sequels and launching the careers of some well known actors. Actress Marguerite Moreau who played Connie in all three Ducks movies initiated a cast reunion of sorts via her Instagram when she posted a picture of a Mighty Ducks whistle accompanied by the status “calling all brethren”.
The reunion consisted mainly of the D2: The Mighty Ducks cast including Mike Vitar who played Luis Mendoza, Garette Ratliff Henson who played Guy, Vincent Larusso who played Adam Banks, Aaron Lohr who played Dean Portman, Shaun Weiss who played Goldberg and Scott Whyte who played the Iceland captain Gunnar Stahl.

The cast of D2: The Mighty Ducks reunited over the weekend, and took the opportunity to recreate their famous 'Flying V'.
Marguerite Moreau, who played Connie Moreau, kept fans up to date on the reunion via Instagram, posting various pictures from the get-together.
One picture saw Shaun Weiss next to a poster of his character Goldberg, along with the caption: "Boys grow up to be men #Goldberg #mightyducks #20yearreunion."
The 1994 film was followed by another sequel, D3: The Mighty Ducks, in 1996.
Jackson - who played Charlie Conway - recently voiced his support for a fourth film, telling Time magazine: "I feel like a fourth film should happen, and if there was space for any of the original kids to come back and have a role, »
And yes, they had to recreate the Flying V.
Ducks fly together, indeed!
Cast members from the 1994 classic D2: The Mighty Ducks reunited Sunday, September 21, to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary, and thankfully, actress Marguerite Moreau (Connie) and her husband Christopher Redman let everyone in on the fun on Instagram.
Though Joshua Jackson and Emilio Estevez were noticeably absent from the festivities, key cast members were present including Sandlot actor Mike Vitar (who played Luis Mendoza in the film), Garette Ratliff Henson (Guy Germaine), Moreau, Vincent Larusso (Adam Banks), Aaron Lohr (Dean Portman) and Scott Whyte, who played their memorable rival Gunnar Stahl (the captain for the Iceland team).
The Mighty Ducks -- which tells the story of a self-centered lawyer (Emilio Estevez) sentenced to community service coaching a youth hockey team -- was a surprise hit in 1992, and spawned a trilogy that still holds a special »

If you heard the familiar "Quack, quack, quack!" refrain from "The Mighty Ducks" off in the distance this weekend, you weren't hallucinating: Most of the cast staged an epic reunion on Sunday in honor of the 20th anniversary of "D2: The Mighty Ducks," and recreated the film's iconic Flying V.
Marguerite Moreau, who played Connie in the "Ducks" trilogy, posted a series of photos to her Instagram account (along with her husband, Christopher Redman) documenting the awesome occurrence, complete with a massive, 21-person Flying V featuring just about every important character to grace the "Ducks" series throughout its three-film run.
Two glaring omissions, as pointed out by MTV, were Joshua Jackson and Emilio Estevez, a.k.a. Charlie Conway and Gordon Bombay, who somehow missed the memo about Sunday's gathering. While it doesn't seem like a true "Ducks" reunion without them, the number of cast members that assembled for the event was still pretty impressive, »

The original Duck(s) Dynasty! The cast of beloved '90s movie, D2: The Mighty Ducks, reunited Sunday, Sept. 21, for the film's 20th anniversary, which was documented by mainstay Marguerite Moreau.

After an embarrassing loss against Team Iceland, Bombay's Team USA regroups to win the Junior Goodwill Games against their rival country. The beloved sequel was considered to be even more successful than its predecessor, The Mighty [...] »
Gearing up for another year at Sheffield's Showroom Cinema, horror film festival Celluloid Screams has announced the full line-up of blood-soaked goodies it has in store for the weekend of October 24-26 – and boy, is it Astron-omically good!

Dan Gilroy's been at this for a while now. His first produced screenplay was the largely-forgotten "Freejack," a science-fiction action movie starring Emilio Estevez, Mick Jagger, and a fresh-off-his-Oscar-win Anthony Hopkins in 1992. The other main co-star in the film was Rene Russo, who ended up married to Gilroy after that film, and now, a full 22 years later, she's co-starring in "Nightcrawler," which is Gilroy's move from being a writer to being a writer-director. If this is any indication of what he can do when he's in full control, then let the era of Dan Gilroy commence. Disturbing and dark, "Nightcrawler" is many things. It is a remarkable La movie, something I would not say lightly. I have a lot of problems watching movies that are "about" La, just like I have a lot of problems watching movies about making movies. I have trouble separating what I know from what I'm watching. »

Cast: Emilio Estevez (Bill), Pat Hingle (Bubba), Laura Harrington (Brett), Yeardley Smith (Connie), John Short (Curtis), J.C. Quinn (Duncan Keller), Holter Graham (Deke Keller), Frankie Faison (Handy)
Alright, I know that I probably can’t tell you anything new about this one, but sometimes I feel like I need to defend it as a wonderful and random anomaly that will probably never happen again. Stephen King as a director? AC/DC doing the complete score? Man, that sounds like horror/rock and roll heaven! In a way, it was. Once again, I do have some nostalgia for this film. It was the humble beginnings of one of my favorite cities, Wilmington, Nc becoming a prolific film town. This film was made by Deg films along with a couple of other King adaptations like “Cat »
It’s safe to say that “Guardians of the Galaxy” score composer Tyler Bates has never written a cue titled “What A Bunch Of A-holes” before. “That’s James Gunn,” Bates laughs, referring to the movie’s director. “That was in his dialog. It was fun.” The fact that Gunn named a number of the music cues is a testament to the closeness that Bates and Gunn enjoy after working on a trio of Gunn-directed films together: “Slither,” “Super” and now “Guardians.” They met when Bates scored and Gunn wrote Zack Snyder’s “Dawn of the Dead.” The pair’s working relationship is such that Gunn brought in Bates as soon as the director got the “Guardians” job. “He started telling me his thoughts in terms of tone. He wanted dramatic and thematic,” Bates says. “He asked if I’d be up to writing in advance.” Bates began writing material »

What I’m about to tell you will make some readers (myself included) feel very old. It has been twenty years since Disney’s The Mighty Ducks was released. Twenty years! Many of you out there will have grown up with the Ducks and so the news that a new chapter could be on the cards might please the nostalgic out there.
Whilst reminiscing about the three films that followed an underdog ice-hockey team, producer Jordan Kerner revealed that a fourth film could potentially happen. The producer revealed that Disney is open to a new version should the right story materialise, something that Kerner admitted that there have been talks about:
“There have been a number of times that we have discussed with the studio the idea of either bringing it back and bringing it back possibly with one or two of the guys who are now in their thirties as the coaches, »

It's been almost two decades since the third "Mighty Ducks" movie, but it seems that the franchise is far from dead. According to producer Jordan Kerner, "Mighty Ducks 4" just needs a good script to become a reality. "I'm not going to fuel the rumor mill that it's going to happen," he explained. "But I'm saying to you that [Disney] said to us, 'We'd be interested if you come to us with the right story.' And that's something that we've been all thinking about independently and I think that we may be coming closer to having the right idea for that." One of the ideas has been to bring one or two of former Ducks, who would now be in their thirties, to become coaches. Another idea would involve the death of Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez). »
Is the beloved Mighty Ducks franchise getting a fourth film?!
If Joshua Jackson has anything to do with it, definitely.
Pics: Favorite Movie and TV Cast Reunions
In a new interview with Time to celebrate D2: The Mighty Ducks' 20th anniversary, Jackson said that he would definitely come back to his breakout role as Charlie Conway.
"I feel like a fourth film should happen, and if there was space for any of the original kids that come back and have a role, I would be surprised that anybody didn’t want to do it," he said. "The next generation should have its own version. Not that we need to come back as adults, but I hope my kids grow up and play pickup hockey and I hope that they have their own movies like my generation had those movies. In that way, yeah, of course »
During an extensive discussion about the 20th anniversary of D2: The Mighty Ducks with Time, Kerner said that Disney has approached him about a follow-up movie, but said that he was still trying to find the right story to tell.
"There have been a number of times that we have discussed with the studio the idea of either bringing it back and bringing it back possibly with one or two of the guys who are now in their thirties as the coaches, and having a few more of them be their friends in their lives and having the kids come back," said Kerner.
"And I've been pitched a story two or three times. It hasn't been the right story yet, but the idea of doing that is »
It's been 22 years since The Mighty Ducks took to the ice, and only 18 years since their final match arrived in D3: The Mighty Ducks. So Time thought there was no better time to dive into an oral history of the entire Disney sports drama franchise, a childhood staple of many kids who lived through the 90s and ended up loving the classic rock of Queen by association. There's been rumblings here and there about some sort of return to the franchise, either in the form of an adult sequel or a remake, and with the aforementioned recent foray into the making-of the trio of films starring Emilio Estevez and Joshua Jackson, we have some details on that possibility, and also one potential, fairly dark storyline. Read on! First of all, franchise producer Jordan Kerner cautions that there's no active development of The Mighty Ducks 4, however, there's certainly interest from the studio, »
