Michigan Math Teacher Has No Regrets After Her 'Cheesy and Awkward' Back-to-School Song Goes Viral

8 September 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

You gotta do homework, work, work, work work! In an 8-minute back-to-school mashup mix, Michigan math teacher Kathryn Wippel "made syllabus week fun again" by changing up the lyrics to pop songs like Fifth Harmony's "Work" to reflect classroom policies. Her performance, which is being called a "first-day fail" and "cringeworthy" by Internet users, was actually meant to be "cheesy and awkward," according to the inventive high school teacher. "There are haters out there, but it was either me stand up there and talk like the teacher from Ferris Bueller's Day Off or this!" Wippel, 32, tells People. "Some of the students looked unenthused, »

'Star Wars,' 'E.T.' and 'Jurassic Park' Top List of Modern Classics Dads Most Want to Share with Their Kids

15 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

With Father's Day right around the corner (it's this Sunday -- call dad!), Fandango surveyed over 1,000 dads and put together a list of the top 25 modern classics they'd most like to share with their brood this summer.  Star Wars, E.T. and Jurassic Park lead the pack, with other fan favorites like Back to the Future, Toy Story, Rocky, The Goonies, The Karate Kid and Ferris Bueller's Day Off all in the mix. It's interesting that many of today's dads grew up in the '70s, '80s and '90s because not only are the films that meant a lot to them as children heavily represented on this list, but it also speaks to the movies we're seeing in theaters now. This weekend Finding Dory hits theaters, and its predecessor, Finding Nemo, landed at...

New Netflix Movie and TV Titles for October

23 May 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a blink of an eye it’ll be October.  The air will turn crisp, the leaves will turn beautiful shades of orange, and you’ll get to crack out your favorite sweatshirt (unless you live in Los Angeles like me, in which case it’ll be 90 and you’ll sweat involuntarily). But rather than playing outside, what you really want to do is watch Netflix. October presents a whole new list of viewing opportunities with classics like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Patton. If you choose to skip a day of work, what could be better than Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Snow Day?  And then there are no shortage of Netflix originals that are being added.  The ones I’m looking most forward to are Mascots from Christopher Guest (Spinal Tap, Best in Show) and the third season of the under-appreciated Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show.

Exorcist and Lethal Weapon TV Show Trailers Have Arrived

16 May 2016 4:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Fox unveiled their full lineup for the 2016-2017 TV season, which includes 13 new shows that will debut both this fall and in midseason. Following the network's upfront presentation today, Fox debuted the first trailers for many of these shows, including the highly-anticipated The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon. We also have the first photos from The Exorcist, which will debut this fall in the Friday 9 Pm time slot, and Lethal Weapon, which is being held for a midseason debut in the Wednesday 8 Pm time slot.

Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, The Exorcist broke box office records and terrified audiences around the world. Now, more than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film, The Exorcist returns as a TV series. Directed by Rupert Wyatt ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes"), The Exorcist is a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family's case of horrifying demonic possession. »

Like the first words out of a baby’s mouth, the first lines uttered in a film are important. These are our picks for the 10 best opening lines in film.

Spring is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the beginning of brighter days than to celebrate the best film beginnings of all time! Check back all month long as we look at the films with the best beginnings.

It can be argued that a character’s lines can move a film forward and have more of an impact on the audience than any amount of action or breathtaking filmmaking.

'Deadpool 2' Officially Happening with the Same Director

14 April 2016 2:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even before Deadpool opened to blockbuster box office success, becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie in cinematic history, the trades reported that 20th Century Fox had green lit the sequel Deadpool 2. Today, during their epic CinemaCon panel, the studio made it official. They confirmed that Deadpool 2 is happening. And they announced that the team is hard at working bringing this unconventional Marvel superhero back to the big screen. And for the first time they announced director Tim Miller would be back. Though they revealed little else.

Shortly after their CinemaCon panel, Fox sent out a PR blast that featured all of their upcoming movies. Except there was no mention of Deadpool 2, or Gambit for that matter. We know that Gambit, which was supposed to be in theaters this October, has been delayed. There was no mention of a new release date for Channing Tatum's X-Men spinoff. »

Here's Why Cable Is Perfect for 'Deadpool 2'

13 April 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As you likely know by now, given Deadpool's massive success at the box office, this unconventional superhero adventure includes a post-credits scene, an homage to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where the Merc With the Mouth shows up to confirm that the iconic comic book character Cable will be featured in Deadpool 2. In hindsight, it was quite a bold move, considering that a sequel was not a sure thing. Now that the movie has made more than $757 million worldwide, we know a follow-up is coming. We reported in February that Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were coming back to pen the sequel. During an interview with Hitfix for the Blu-ray and DVD release on May 10, Rhett Reese had this to say about how Cable will be the perfect "foil" for the Merc, much like how Colossus was in the original Deadpool.

'Deadpool 2' Begins Shooting This Fall?

5 April 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There has never been any question that Ryan Reynolds will return for Deadpool 2. What has been up for debate is just how much money the star is going to ask for this time around, seeing as how the first Deadpool was an unexpected blockbuster and a box office phenomenon. While no numbers are being unveiled yet, it was reported earlier today by HeroicHollywood that the actor has successfully closed his deal with a fat raise in place, and that shooting will begin as early as Fall 2016.

Still playing in theaters with a May 10 Blu-ray and DVD release date already announced, Deadpool wowed just about everybody by pulling in an unexpected $754.5 million at the worldwide box office. The movie has even passed The Matrix Reloaded to become the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time. The movie had a considerably small budget, especially for a big Marvel superhero movie. It »

Watch Ferris Bueller's Parents Return to Celebrate 30th Anniversary

5 April 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, we reported that fans of the comedy classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off will be able to gather in Chicago to celebrate its 30th Anniversary with Ferris Fest. The event will take place in Lake Forrest, Illinois and Chicago, Illinois from Friday, May 20 to Sunday, May 22. The initial announcement revealed that a number of cast members have already been confirmed to attend Ferris Fest, such as Cindy Pickett and Lyman Ward, who played Ferris' parents, along with Jonathan Schmock, the snobby French restaurant maitre d'. Since then, others such as Edie McClurg (Grace) and Larry Flash Jenkins, the garage attendant who "borrows" the Ferrari, have been confirmed to attend. Today Ferris Fest has released the first promo, which recreates a beloved scene from the movie, with Cindy Pickett and Lyman Ward talking about the celebration.

The scene in question is where Ferris' sister Jeannie (Jennifer Grey) answers the door at her house, »
