22 November 2014 9:09 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Though he’s best known for playing the man of your nightmares, prolific actor Robert Englund has played a plethora of memorable roles over his impressive career, including his turn as the titular villain in 1989’s The Phantom of the Opera. Scream Factory is bringing Dwight H. Little’s take of Gaston Leroux’s classic novel to Blu-ray, but it will now take a little longer than anticipated.

Initially set to be released on January 13th, Scream Factory’s Blu-ray of The Phantom of the Opera will now come out on February 17th. Extras will be announced next month. In the meantime, we have the official cover art and the delay announcement from Scream Factory:

“Slight delay for our upcoming release of The Phantom Of The Opera. Originally slated for 1/13, it will now move to 2/17. Our apologies for the extension but we are trying to make it the best possible »

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #30-21

15 October 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

17 Times Mary Katherine Gallagher Is Awesomely, Hysterically Awkward

15 September 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There's no character quite like Molly Shannon's Mary Katherine Gallagher, so in honor of the actress's birthday this week, we're taking a look back at some of her iconic character's hilarious - and hilariously awkward - moments in Superstar. Shannon first introduced the world to the clumsy Catholic schoolgirl on Saturday Night Live, and in 1999, Mary Katherine Gallagher made it to the big screen with the movie Superstar, which costarred Will Ferrell as cheesy high school hunk Sky Corrigan. The film featured Mary Katherine's most memorable antics, including the midconfession monologues, the tree-bark makeouts, and the sweet, sometimes heartbreakingly vulnerable moments that make the character so lovable. To celebrate Shannon's 50th birthday on Tuesday, take a look at 17 times Mary Katherine Gallagher gets wonderfully, hysterically weird. »

Will Ferrell Turns 47: What's His Most Underrated Work?

16 July 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Will Ferrell turns 47 today, and now's a good time to announce that he's enjoying a phenomenal career. He was a valuable "SNL" cast member during his entire seven-year run, his movie career is endlessly successful, and he's the reason we have Funny Or Die. Oh, and he was a Broadway star for a second. He's doing well. That brings me to today's topic: What's the most underrated moment in Ferrell's career? You might say that his role in "Stranger Than Fiction" deserves another look. Perhaps you think he was spot-on as Bob Woodward in the bizarre pseudo-gem "Dick." But today I'm advocating for a Will Ferrell movie that represents a bygone part of his career -- his "SNL" streak as really, really dorky characters. The movie? Is "Superstar." In this box office dud from '99, Ferrell plays Molly Shannon's Catholic school crush. He's cool to her and hilariously weird to us. »
