Chips Movie and Stephen King's It Get 2017 Release Dates

22 April 2016 6:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. beefed up its 2017 release slate today, by issuing dates for three upcoming movies, their big screen adaptation of the hit TV series CHiPs (August 11, 2017), an adaptation of Stephen King's It (September 8, 2017) and an unspecified PG-13 comedy (December 22, 2017). Warner Bros. had already marked August 11, 2017 for an unknown "event film," but today they revealed which title will take that slot. As for the PG-13 comedy, that's anybody's guess at this point.

Deadline reports that CHiPs will go up against Sony Pictures' Emoji on August 11, 2017, but it will also open one week after three highly-anticipated summer movies. 20th Century Fox will be unveiling Alien: Covenant on August 4, 2017, while Universal Pictures will release Pitch Perfect 3 and Open Road Films will debut Blazing Samurai on the same date. As of now, no other movies are slated to hit theaters for the rest of that month, but that will surely change soon.

Review: The dumbest 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' cops get some run in 'House Mouses'

16 February 2016 6:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Brooklyn Nine-Nine coming up just as soon as I give you a signed copy of my book of mouth exercises... My father's cousin was an actor named Danny Wells. He never hit it big — these days, if people would know him at all, it would be for playing Luigi to Captain Lou Albano's Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! —  but he worked steadily in TV throughout the '70s and '80s, to the point where it became almost routine when I would tell my parents that Cousin Danny had popped up in another episode of The A-Team or CHiPs. He also had a recurring role on The Jeffersons as Charlie, the bartender on the first floor of George and Weezie's apartment building (here he is giving George some advice), and towards the end of the series, there were even a couple of Charlie-centric episodes. »

He was 75. His sister-in-law Marlene Duerr Dedderson confirmed the news on Facebook.

After the crash of Elliott’s plane, Billie Jo asks the family, “Do you think we’ll get to keep him?” while the family stands over the crop duster, who’s been knocked out.
