Great Scott! Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd Had a Sweet Back to the Future Reunion
This weekend, fans of Back to the Future got a peek at the friendship that still exists between the stars of the beloved movie trilogy, years after we've actually lived through the "future" laid out in the movies. Christopher Lloyd, aka Doctor Emmett Brown, was among the many stars who supported Marty McFly, sorry, Michael J. Fox, at Saturday night's "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson's" charity fundraiser in NYC, which benefited the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

Michael, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991 at only 29-years-old, is a fierce advocate for research into a cure for the degenerative disorder and devotes much of his time to his foundation. Many of his friends were at his side at the comedy and music event, but we couldn't help but focus on the reunion with his costar. Lloyd, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday,

The Alternative Halloween – A Terrifying 80’s Kids Movie Double Bill

Tom Jolliffe looks back at two terrifying kids films from the 80’s…

Before terms such as snowflake and millennial were brought into common use, and before the world descended into a constant keyboard manned war over matters of offence, the world was a simpler time. PC and Health and Safety gone mad wasn’t a thing. Kids could play conkers. You could put Christmas decor up around towns and schools without fear of offending people. You could even not be privy to fake news about people being offended by Christmas decorations.

Most importantly though…throughout the 80’s, it seemed that films aimed at younger audiences were quite happy to terrify the bejesus out of youngens. Maybe it was a giant spider in Krull, Skeksis in Dark Crystal, or Christopher Lloyd’s Toon reveal in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but this would give a kid as many nightmares as if they’d sneakily watched Alien,

Warning: Spoilers ahead

Within minutes, Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) gets a call from her stepfather to tell her that her mom DeDe has passed away.

The Dunphy kids also deal with the news in their own unique ways. Luke (Nolan Gould) makes jokes about his grandmother coming back as a zombie, Hayley (Sarah Hyland) gorges on Halloween candy to cope, and Alex (Ariel Winter) has a surprising, out-of-character reaction.

ReRUN Trailer Sends Christopher Lloyd Back in Time, Again

ReRUN Trailer Sends Christopher Lloyd Back in Time, Again
The trailer for ReRUN finds Christopher Lloyd heading back in time. The new feature film is directed by Alyssa Rallo Bennett from a script written by Gary O. Bennett of Stonestreet Studios. It was announced back in May of 2017 that Lloyd was attached to star in the indie drama and the actor revealed that he was excited to take on the role, noting that going back in time was not something he ever thought he would revisit in his career after the beloved Back to the Future franchise wrapped back in 1990. Lloyd called the ReRun story "wonderful and moving," when asked about agreeing to star in the film.

ReRun director Alyssa Rallo Bennett says that 78-year old Christopher Lloyd is "an ageless actor," and that "he's in great shape, and was able to parry, elevate and improv with our young 10-year old star." Rallo went on to say that Lloyd is "not vain,

Jimmy Kimmel Didn’t Have to Do This Brooklyn Interview (But He Did)
Jimmy Kimmel had every right to cancel this interview.

Whenever Kimmel brings his late-night ABC show to the east coast for one of its popular week-long runs in Brooklyn, he does a little publicity on the Saturday before things kick off. He doesn’t have a lot of time. Kimmel wrapped a Thursday broadcast of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” from California and touched down in New York on Friday. Now there’s a lot to get done: The stage of Howard Gilman Opera House at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, which a massive crew is working on all weekend, must be set by Monday evening.

A live audience has been booked. Scheduled guests include Cardi B., Adam Sandler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. And Google is set to sponsor the entire run – the first time ABC has enlisted an advertiser to do a week-long deal for the show’s Brooklyn trip.

‘Little Women’ Film Review: Contemporary Take on Literary Classic Feels More Old-Fashioned Than the Original

‘Little Women’ Film Review: Contemporary Take on Literary Classic Feels More Old-Fashioned Than the Original
Clare Niederpruem’s adaptation of “Little Women” is billed as “the first-ever modern cinematic retelling of the classic story.” (Apparently they’re not counting the 2012 TV movie “The March Sisters at Christmas.”) This sounds like a promising approach; Louisa May Alcott’s beloved novel was published 150 years ago, yet it remains as relevant as ever.

Alcott’s books grappled with the place of girls and women (and also boys and men) in the world, so there will always be room for thoughtful adaptations of her work. Indeed, this year brought a well-received miniseries to PBS, and Greta Gerwig is currently working on an interpretation starring Saoirse Ronan and Meryl Streep. Plus, of course, parents still show kids their own favorite versions, from 1933, 1949 and 1994.

But these efforts reflected a crucial understanding missing from Niederpruem’s feature debut: that we are all Jo. The girls in this contemporary retelling — which was produced

Someone Is Getting Killed Off of Modern Family Next Season - but Who?!
Perhaps the only thing more surprising than the fact that Modern Family is still going strong 10 seasons later is that the comedy series - which is typically full of lighthearted, zany antics from the Dunphy clan - is about to kill off one of its characters. The long-running ABC show returns for its season 10 premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 26, and there's a chance it'll have you shedding tears from sadness instead of laughter, according to co-creator Christopher Lloyd.

"We're handling some bigger life events in this season," he told Entertainment Weekly, explaining that someone will perish at some point within the season's first half. "We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it's not easy to do because that's a heavy subject. But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it.
