Rumours suggest that original cuts of Star Wars are heading to Blu-ray. But how likely is that? Ryan weighs up the possibilities...
For many Star Wars fanatics, the special edition release of the Original Trilogy back in 1997 was a bittersweet moment. On one hand, it offered us the chance to see George Lucas's space opera films in their natural habitat: on a huge cinema screen.
Then there's the restoration to consider: Lucasfilm took the original Star Wars negatives from its archives and cleaned them up, removing years of dirt and scratches, and restoring the colours to their original balance. Thanks to the efforts of people like effects supervisor Dave Carson and his team, Darth Vader's outfit was once again black and imposing, not an embarrassing shade of faded blue.
During this process, however, George Lucas decided to make a number of small yet significant alterations: the insertion of new effects shots, »

No day but Today. That's from Rent, but you should forgive us for the pun: Kathie Lee Gifford revealed Friday on the Today show that she's written an 18-minute musical featuring the show's anchors and crew. (Whether it'll be loosely based on La Boheme has not yet been confirmed.) Featuring the astounding title of Not Today and Tomorrow's Not Looking Good Either, the musical will include guest-star Regis Philbin, and may air sometime before the end of the year.

I am woman, hear me bust ghosts
The rumor is Sony (who owns Columbia Pictures) has been in talks with Feig about the project. Representatives with Sony have declined to comment.
While fans appear to be split regarding the concept, the idea is nothing new. Longtime Ghostbuster fans will recall an episode of The Real Ghostbusters where Janine Melnitz (voiced by Laura Summer) actually gets wears the proton pack for the first time in the episode Janine's Genie back in 1986. Her reddish-brown jumpsuit would »

It's the bad-movie franchise that Twitter built. When Sharknado – the saga of a man, his chainsaw and a bunch of poorly CGI'd sharks flying through the air in L.A. – aired on Syfy last year, it became a surprise social-network sensation, racking up enough mentions to compete with the likes of Game of Thrones. Suddenly the Asylum, the production house known for direct-to-video knockoffs like Transmorphers and Syfy schlock like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, had a hit on its hands. The sequel, which debuted tonight, had an expensive NYC setting, »
Sharknado star Ian Ziering stopped by The Today Show this morning to chat about last summer’s ridiculous hit and the upcoming sequel: Sharknado 2: The Second One. And he brought along a new clip that features some of Today’s familiar faces.
According to Roker’s meteorological analysis, it looks like there will be two(!) Sharknados hitting Manhattan in the sequel, and that it’s possible they’ll merge somewhere on the Upper East Side, leading to a possible EF5 Sharknado.

You thought this story was over, didn’t you? You thought there was no way that Ghostbusters 3 could go ahead, not after the tragic death of Harold Ramis and the total non-involvement of Bill Murray. Well, you’re wrong! We’re all wrong! Dan Aykroyd says that Ghostbusters 3 is going ahead, and no one will ever convince him otherwise!
In an interview with The Today Show (via The Playlist), Aykroyd once more reassured us that Ghostbusters 3 is indeed going forward. Although details continue to be scant (when were they ever not?), Aykroyd did inform anyone who would listen that there are plans to start shooting in the spring, and that “it should be good.” Should it, Dan?

Here's he goes again. When Dan Aykroyd showed up on “The Today Show” this week to discuss his new film “Get On Up,” talk of course eventually turned to the "Ghostbusters" series, and in particular "Ghostbusters 3." Never one to miss a moment to ensure everyone that the movie is happening (remember when he predicted two more movies?) or talk about plot details, he now says the paranormal franchise sequel would shoot next year. "It looks like we'll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I'm hearing," he told Carson Daly. "It should be good." But there is still not much known about who will be involved. Earlier this year, Ivan Reitman confirmed that he would not direct ‘Gbiii,’ and a few young directors have circled the project since. Phil Lord and Chris Miller decided not to tackle the franchise two weeks after we reported they were in the running for the relaunch job. »

Break out the whips and handcuffs: the first trailer for Fifty Shades Of Grey has been released, giving us a good look at Sam Taylor-Johnson's adaptation of the E.L. James erotic romance novel starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. Apparently the trailer was too hot for NBC's The Today Show, since a sanitized version also aired on the show this morning. While there isn't anything too raunchy in this first trailer, the last couple of seconds are probably Nsfw. »

“It looks like we’ll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I’m hearing,” Aykroyd told Carson Daly during his interview. “It should be good.”
It should be noted that is not the first time Aykroyd has said the movie is going into production, so perhaps take this one with a pinch of salt.
Here’s the video clip so you can see for yourself:
Ghostbusters 3 has been written by Ethan Cohen (Men in Black 3) but no director has been named, though Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is rumoured to be the front runner. Aykroyd is to return as Ray Stanz »

In an interview posted earlier in the week, he all but revealed that he was set to play Shazam for DC and Warner Bros. And whilst he's still not 100% officially confirmed that, he has confirmed to The Today Show in th Us that the thus-far unnamed movie "is going to happen".
He added that "I've been dying to announce it by the way. We still have to find the right writer. We're having two, three takes right now", adding that he's "very excited about it". "I've been waiting a long time for this and so have the fans by the way", he teased.

Timed to the release of their self-titled debut album, 5 Seconds of Summer stopped by The Today Show today to give fans a more-than-five-second sample of their new album.
Surrounded by screaming teenage girls, the band chatted with Matt Lauer about how far they’ve come from their first gig (which was in a room with 11 people) to play in the middle of Rockefeller Plaza. As always, they were affable, charmingly Austrailian, and almost impossible to hear over the high-pitched cheers of their fans.
The performance included both the band’s earworm hit “She Looks So Perfect”:
And “Amnesia”: »

At the very end of the following video, The Today Show asked Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson about his mystery lead role in a future DC Comics adaptation. While previous interviews had the wrestler-turned-actor all but confirm that he's playing Shazam, the Hercules star now comments briefly on the development stage of the movie itself. “Yes, it is going to happen,” he told NBC's Today host. “I’ve been dying to announce it by the way…We still have to find the right writer.

Oscar Pistorius was involved in a heated verbal fight with an angry man over the weekend. During a night out at VIP Nightclub Sandton in Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday, the Olympian, who's currently on trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steencamp, got into a war of words with one rowdy club-goer.
