Remember When Mariah Carey Sang "All I Want for Christmas Is You" With Classroom Instruments?

17 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Back in 2012, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots sang "Call Me Maybe" with Carly Rae Jepsen and it was the greatest thing ever. Months later, though, it got even better. Fallon and the band were joined by Mariah Carey on what was then Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and they cranked out a rousing rendition of her holiday pop classic, "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Though Carey's recorded version will indubitably be played millions of times in the coming weeks, you probably won't hear anything like this. Fallon and company are playing their toy instruments and a small chorus of kids are on backup, while everyone is dressed in their holiday finest. It's totally irresistible, even for the most Grinch-like viewer.

No ‘E.T.’ or ‘Back To The Future’ remakes to happen. Ever.

30 November 2016 12:08 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Back To The Future remake will never happen, and neither will E.T., says producer of the original films.

More on the Back To The Future remake news below.

Image: Universal

There are some movies that simply cannot be remade. Ever. Two at the forefront of discussion today are E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial and Back To The Future. The producer of both of those movies, Frank Marshall, has been speaking to Yahoo! Movies that he will never, ever give permission for a redo of either.

“Yeah [we won’t reboot Back to The Future], as long as I have my say. No, that one exists just like E.T. – we’re never touching those. I love watching it.”

Earlier this year, Allied and Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis said that even if Universal Pictures wanted to, a remake of Back to the Future could not go ahead without the approval of himself and writer Bob Gale.

The 6 Most Unforgettable First Dances of All Time

29 November 2016 9:04 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The first dance between a newly married couple can often be incredibly emotional, but these six unique first dances take that principle to the next level.

All we have to say is: We’re not crying. You’re crying.

1. When this paraplegic veteran surprised his bride by dancing at their wedding without their wheelchair.

Sgt. Joey Johnson served in Afghanistan, and when he returned, took up riding motorcycles, which helped him with his post-traumatic stress disorder. But four months after he met Michelle Johnson at a concert in 2012, Johnson had an accident on his motorcycle that left him a paraplegic. »

Pedro Almodóvar Reveals Why He Turned Down ‘Sister Act’ Directing Job

29 November 2016 7:20 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Back in 1990, Pedro Almodóvar was coming off a string of critical and commercial darlings thanks to “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!,” two female-charged stories with distinct comedic voices. Producer Scott Rudin, meanwhile, was shepherding Paul Rudnick’s script about a singing nun into production, changing drafts numerous times and trying and failing to land Bette Midler as a star. Shockingly, Rudin almost landed Almodóvar as the director of “Sister Act,” but the director’s own self-doubt and skepticism of Hollywood turned him away.

In a new interview with The New Yorker, Almodóvar revealed exactly why he decided to pass on “Sister Act,” which ended up starring Whoopi Goldberg and grossing over $200 million at the worldwide box office. “Maybe it’s because I didn’t trust my English, »

Zendaya Responds to 'Spider-Man' Casting Controversy: 'People Are Going to React Over Anything'

9 November 2016 11:51 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Zendaya has no time for haters!

The 20-year-old actress opens up in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter about her new role in Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming and addressed the racially charged backlash she's received after rumors surfaced that she might be playing Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker's love interest.

"People are going to react over anything," she tells the magazine. "But nothing [about who she is playing] is fact. It's like, you guys are just making sh*t up at this point and then reacting to it. It's funny to watch the guessing game."

"But of course there's going to be outrage over that because for some reason some people just aren't ready," she adds. "I'm like, 'I don't know what America you live in, but from what I see when I walk outside my streets of New York right now, I see lots »

Craig Roberts interview: Red Oaks season 2, directing, British film

7 November 2016 7:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Nov 11, 2016

As Red Oaks season 2 arrives on Amazon Prime Video, we chatted to lead Craig Roberts about his character, directing and more…

What Netflix’s Stranger Things is to 80s sci-fi horror, Amazon’s Red Oaks is to 80s coming-of-age romantic comedy. Without slipping into parody, both are a continuation of a familiar style of storytelling featuring characters and themes we know and love. If Stranger Things takes its cues from Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter, Red Oaks has made itself the inheritor of John Hughes, Rob Reiner and Amy Heckerling. (In a neat connection, Heckerling has directed multiple episodes of Red Oaks, which also stars Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Dirty Dancing’s Jennifer Grey, stitching it firmly into that continuity.)

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do The Time Warp Again review

24 October 2016 2:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Patrick Sproull Oct 24, 2016

Doing the Time Warp again is trickier than it looks, as this Fox Halloween tribute to the original Rocky Horror shows...

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a formula that continues to work astonishingly well, all things considered. It’s a borderline nonsensical celebration of the camp and the queer that still delights audiences four decades on. It’s also a formula that a lot of filmmakers and stage directors are fearful to change. Not least because the musical and film has such a devout and protective purist fan-base.

Jennifer Grey Reveals the Actors She’d Cast as Baby and Johnny in a Dirty Dancing Remake

19 October 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If there were to be a Dirty Dancing film remake, Jennifer Grey already has two actors in mind to play the roles of Frances “Baby” Houseman and Johnny Castle.

During an interview with JustJenny radio host Jenny Hutt, Grey, who played Baby in the 1987 dramedy, listed two potential A-listers she’d suggest for the leading roles.

“I think Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling,” Grey, 56, revealed. “Wouldn’t you like to see them? Or Channing Tatum?”

“I don’t know if she’s young enough to play that virgin thing, but she’s so gorgeous,” Grey complimented the 35-year-old mother of one. »

24 of the biggest and best movie power ballads

19 October 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Adam Rees Nov 4, 2016

Once a blockbuster staple, the power ballad was the ultimate movie accompaniment. We look back at some of the classics...

For a glorious period from the mid-80s throughout the 90s, the biggest summer blockbusters were only worth their salt if they had an equally gargantuan song at the head their soundtrack. Often the success of one was inexorably linked to the other, with the likes of Four Weddings And A Funeral's feats matched and even exceeded by Wet Wet Wet's accompanying Love Is All Around.

The greatest and most successful songs belong to the power ballad genre, and are as emotionally charged and forceful as the gods of epic balladry such as Journey, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi and Meat Loaf. As the 90s became the 00s and the charts became increasingly irrelevant, the movie ballad became almost defunct, with even the song-dominant film soundtrack being »

Donald Trump vs. the Internet: Celebrities Turn to Viral Videos, Social Media to Blast Candidate

19 October 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Donald Trump’s rise on the national stage was fueled by Twitter, letting him circumvent the mainstream media by tweeting directly to his 12.6 million followers.

By the same token, in this election year unprecedented numbers of celebrities are using the tools of internet video and social media to voice their unfiltered political leanings — which, generally speaking, have been against Trump and for Hillary Clinton.

In past election years, popular actors and musicians stumped for their favored candidates on the campaign trail. For example, Bruce SpringsteenEddie Vedder, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson were among those supporting Barack Obama in 2012 with in-person appearances.

That’s still the case today, but increasingly celebs have been using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms to express their political viewpoints, either humorously or earnestly. The latest anti-Trump salvo to go viral: Kathy Griffin’s F-bomb-laced parody of the Clinton campaign’s “Mirrors” ad. The original spot shows a series of girls »

‘Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened’ Review: Stephen Sondheim Opens Old Wounds Of Closing A Show — Nyff

16 October 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“One of the lessons of adulthood is disappointment,” says a bleary-eyed Abigail Pogrebin as she muses on her time in the original Broadway production of “Merrily We Roll Along,” Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince’s notorious flop that ended their decades-long collaborative friendship and the subject of Lonny Price’s nostalgic documentary, “Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened,” which debuted at the New York Film Festival.

Price, (whom “Dirty Dancing” fans may recognize as the guy who put Baby in the corner), was part of the original cast of the musical. Based on the popular 1934 play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, “Merrily” tells the life stories of its three main characters in reverse order; they start out bitter and jaded adults, and by the show’s end have reverted to hopeful and starry-eyed kids. Prince, the legendary Broadway producer and the first to combine producing with directing, »

What if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump just busted out in a song during the second presidential debate on Sunday? Well, some genius cut the debate video to make it look like the duo sang “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.” In the video posted by the Dutch Lucky TV, Trump and Clinton walk onto the stage to greet audiences, only for Trump to take the mic and start singing the male verse of the song from “Dirty Dancing.” He stares lovingly at Clinton, before she sings the female part of the duet.

Zombieland Was Supposed to Have Patrick Swayze Instead of Bill Murray

28 August 2016 4:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite passing away from cancer at the young age of 57, 80s icon Patrick Swayze kept acting up until the time of his death, appearing in a handful of movies and starring in the A&E drama The Beast. His untimely demise came in 2009, the same year Zombieland stormed theaters. And as it turns out, Patrick Swayze was actually supposed to play himself in that movie. This, unfortunately, didn't came to pass.

As Zombieland fans know, it was Bill Murray that would go onto assume the role of himself, playing a heightened version of his Hollywood persona. The cameo remained a secret, even weeks after the movie came out, and many sight the former SNL and Ghostbusters star's presence in the movie as one of the highlights. In this horror action comedy, Woody Harrelson's Tallahassee and his survivor friends played by Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin decided to »

“Hairspray Live!” doesn’t debut until this December, but the first footage is already here.

“Hairspray Live!” features newcomer Maddie Baillio in the star-making role of Tracy Turnblad, plus a star-studded cast including Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, Derek Hough, Dove Cameron, Garrett Clayton, Sean Hayes, Andrea Martin and Rosie O’Donnell. “Hairspray” vet Harvey Fierstein will star as Edna Turnblad, the role that won him a Tony in the stage production.

“Hairspray” follows NBC’s past live musicals “The Sounds of Music,” “Peter Pan” and most recently, “The Wiz.”

The live TV musical has become the hot trend of the moment with other broadcasts following suit. Fox jived into the genre with “Grease,” which was a critical and consumer hit. Fox is also prepping for “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” this fall, though it won’t be live. ABC is also gearing up for a non-live television music of “Dirty Dancing.”
