One day after Grease: Live shared sneak peeks of its star-studded trio, Fox has unspooled the TV special's first teaser. The clip above offers a few more looks at the sleek Twin Peaks Rydell High cast members, as well as lots of hands-y dance moves (which, believe it or not, are actually kind of tame and unfortunately don't feature any grandstanding cameos from Thing T. Thing from The Addams Family). Expect much more hand jiving (yep, that's it) January 31. »

Buzz and Woody and Slink and Hamm have been in our lives for two decades — Pixar’s “Toy Story” opened 20 years ago today, making animation history as it did. The first feature film from the studio and the first created completely using computer-generated imagery paved the way for movies like “Shrek,” “How to Train Your Dragon” and, of course, several more films from the acclaimed Pixar. Its 16th feature film, “The Good Dinosaur,” opens in theaters this Wednesday. A third sequel to “Toy Story” will come in 2018. The legacy of “Toy Story” is difficult to overstate: In addition to being a game-changer in the world CG animation, it raised the bar on family films that really appeal to audiences of all ages; Andy’s toys can be seen in Disneyland rides, real-world kids’ toy boxes and in countless Halloween costumes each year; and in 2005 the U.S. Library of Congress declared the movie culturally, »

While World War II raged overseas, pop-culture creators on the American home front were in an awkward spot: How could their art help the war effort without becoming dry and preachy? How could they adapt light entertainment to document the anxieties and deprivations of life during wartime? Nowhere was this artistic crisis felt more than in the still-young (and insanely popular) mediums of cartooning and comic strips. Warren Bernard’s gorgeous new collection of rare drawings from the war years, Cartoons for Victory, dives into that strange period. The collection features single-panel editorial cartoons as well as comic strips and advertisements, boasting a high percentage of previously unseen material. There’s wartime work by cartoonists such as Charles Addams (The Addams Family), Harold Gray (Little Orphan Annie), Harvey Kurtzman (Mad magazine), Will Eisner (The Spirit, A Contract with God), as well as many less-known artists of the period.

Traditionally, Halloween is about covering yourself in fake blood and going to a party so that people can repeatedly ask you what you came as. When all you really want is a nice night in, right?
Hence this indispensable guide to 12 classic terrifying movies on Netflix. That's 24 hours of horror (give or take), so you can freak yourself out from sundown to sundown without ever having to leave the comfort of your sofa.
Although we strongly advise that you check behind that sofa first - and the curtains while you're at it - for the sake of your peace of mind.
1. The Omen (1976)
Arriving hot on the heels of The Exorcist, Richard Donner's The Omen solidified the notion that small children are terrifying and probably possessed by the Devil. The '70s horror is still an effective frightener that boasts moments to make you leap out of your seat. »

Who doesn't love a good scare? But you can't exactly sit down and watch "The Shining" or "The Exorcist" with young kids. (Well, you can but we're not paying the therapy bills.)
Why not queue up family-friendly horror-comedies like "Hocus Pocus," "Casper" or "The Addams Family?"
Here's our list of 16 movies you can watch with your kids (and not be bored silly).

ABC Family has announced the full lineup for its annual "13 Nights of Halloween" celebration, and its offerings of both kid- and adult-friendly fare signify that it's already beginning its transition into its upcoming rebranded network, Freeform.
The schedule includes perennial favorites like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1," "Hocus Pocus," and "The Addams Family," which appeal to tweens and teens alike, along with flicks to attract a younger crowd, including "Frankenweenie," "Monsters University," and "Toy Story Of Terror!"
But the more-adult movies -- aimed at that so-called "becomer" demographic of viewers in their late 20s and early 30s -- begin late at night, and wouldn't have been caught dead on ABC Family's schedule before. These new flicks -- including Johnny Depp's "Sleepy Hollow," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and the original "Poltergeist" -- clearly signify the shift to Freeform, and should hopefully attract the audience that the network craves. »

Watching and marathoning movies on Halloween is like a tradition. They don’t have to be horror movies either. I personally like to watch both horror movies and cherished Halloween movies from my childhood. The films below are the quintessential Halloween movies from your childhood that will make your holiday even better!
The Addams Family (1991)
Con artists plan to fleece the eccentric family using an accomplice who claims to be their long lost Uncle Fester.
This movie did a fantastic job of bringing the television series to film. It was funny, zany, off the walls but at the same time it was endearing and gave us one of the most lovable families ever.
Gomez and Morticia have one of the most functioning and healthy relationships on television not to mention they way they treat the rest of the family is incredibly respectful and loving. The entire family dynamic presented is »

Usually around this time, Dancing with the Stars pulls out Movie Night with dances inspired by classic films. But this season DWTS is trying something different, TV Night. The 11 couples will all perform routines inspired by modern and classic TV shows, from Mad Men to The Addams Family. Season 19 winner and new America's Funniest Home Videos host Alfonso is back as a guest judge, which seems appropriate since he got his first perfect score for reprising the Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Just in time for Halloween season, a picture of Christina Ricci dressed as Morticia Addams has surfaced. Ricci famously starred as Wednesday Addams in 1991's The Addams Family, but she looks more like Anjelica Huston's character than ever here. So, what does this mean? Is she starring in a new Addams Family movie? Is she getting ready for an early Halloween? Nope, turns out it's just a great photoshop job. Tumblr user thecreaturesenchantment created the image from a promotional photo of Huston as the spooky character, altered the dress, and put Ricci's face on it. Pretty convincing, isn't it? That doesn't mean we can't still put in a formal request to make this picture into movie reality. http://thecreaturesenchantment.tumblr.com/post/129400374326/wednesday-addams-as-her-mother-morticia-addams »

In recent times, Hollywood has enjoyed going back into the 1990s to come up with belated sequels to previous hit movies. So, we finally got Dumb & Dumber 2, for instance, whilst a third Clerks, a second Mallrats, a new Sister Act and a Naked Gun reboot are being cooked up somewhere. Further belated sequels? Zoolander 2 finally arrives next year, and Anchorman 2 celebrates, quietly, its second birthday this Christmas.
It was only at the end of the 1990s that comedy sequels suddenly really took off. There were exceptions beforehand of course, but few things raise the eyebrows of Hollywood high brass than lots of cash. This, whilst the enormous box office takings of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me were in part down to an utterly inspired marketing campaign, »
A new picture of Christina Ricci posing as Morticia Addams has caused a stir online - and while the actress looks perfect for the role, sadly it's photoshopped.
Ricci looks just at home playing Morticia as she did playing the family's daughter Wednesday back in the '90s, but don't expect to see her star as the Addams family matriarch any time soon.
The photo got Twitter users talking instantly, with many keen to see Ricci star as Morticia for real.
all i have ever wanted was christina ricci to be morticia and then i find out it's photoshopped.

My thoughts on Christina Ricci »
What's going on, Wednesday!? Christina Ricci pulled off the character Wednesday Addams in the 1991 movie version of The Addams Family and its 1993 sequel Addams Family Values, but these days, she's looking more like the matriarch of the altogether ooky clan. The Internet went nuts on Monday, Sept. 21, when a Photoshopped image of Ricci dressed as Morticia Addams went viral. http://thecreaturesenchantment.tumblr.com/post/129400374326/wednesday-addams-as-her-mother-morticia-addams According to Yahoo, Ricci's head was edited onto Anjelica Huston's body from a photo taken in the '90s. Clad in her black threads (oh, so [...] »
Well hello there, Christina Ricci! The Internet started buzzing Monday morning when a picture of what appeared to be the actress dressed up as Morticia Addams from The Addams Family began surfacing online. Wearing a sleek, tight dress with a plunging neckline and dark lipstick, Ricci looked quite mysterious as she posed for the black and white photo. After the photo began to spread like wildfire, Yahoo discovered that the viral picture is indeed a Photoshopped image based on a publicity still of Anjelica Huston from the '90s. Despite the revelation, it didn't stop many from sounding off on the one-of-a-kind image. Fans may recall the year when Ricci played 11-year-old »
Over fifty years ago, ABC introduced the world to The Addams Family. To commemorate the "altogether ooky" series and its recognizable song, Spacelab9 will release The Addams Family vinyl soundtrack on October 16th:
Press Release: September 17th, 2015 – They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re all together ooky, The Addams Family! These immortal lyrics, first penned by composer Vic Mizzy in 1964, are indelibly etched in the psyche of America and of pop culture fans the world over, and rightfully so. Although the series, like it’s popular counterpart The Munsters, lasted only two seasons from 1964 to 1966, it has remained in syndication and at the forefront of popular culture for over 50 years, spawning an animated series, two feature films, several books, toys, video games and a dizzying array of merchandise for kids of all ages.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the beloved series, Spacelab9 invites »
