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

For his part, Stonestreet is wearing an expression suggesting that he’s not quite sure if he’ll pass the smell test.

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.

Way to drag out out the anticipation for the upcoming season of “Modern Family,” Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett on the ABC sitcom, hit up Instagram to offer a look at what’s to come when the series returns for its 10th run on Sept. 26. And it’s quite the eye-opener.

Ferguson graced fans with photos of himself and his co-star, Eric Stonestreet from what we’re guessing is a Halloween episode from the upcoming season.

The first hint is that there are “Happy Halloween” signs and decorative bats and hanging behind Ferguson and Stonestreet.

The second hint is, well, Ferguson is dressed as Prince Harry and Stonestreet is done up as Meghan Markle, which should leave fans royally psyched for the show’s return.

‘Modern Family’: Optimism Grows For Season 11 Of ABC Comedy Series

‘Modern Family’: Optimism Grows For Season 11 Of ABC Comedy Series
In one week, Modern Family will premiere its 10th season on ABC. Behind the scenes, groundwork continues to be laid out for an eleventh season of the Emmy-winning family comedy, and all sides appear optimistic that it could become a reality.

I hear conversations are still ongoing between ABC and Modern Family producer 20th Century Fox TV for a shorter 11th season, with a final season order in the neighborhood of 18 episodes discussed. Modern Family creators/showrunners Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd have said publicly that they are open to one more season. I hear the cast is yet to be approached but all are said to be willing to return for a final chapter if new deals can be made.

Like CBSThe Big Bang Theory, Modern Family is heading into the last year of a multi-year pickup that had been originally envisioned to be the series’ final season.

'Modern Family' Is Supposed To Kill Off A Character In What Sounds Like The Show's Final Season

As Modern Family goes into its 10th and, reportedly, final season, there is apparently at least one significant change on the way, and not one that is likely to please the show's die hard fans. It seems that one of the main chacters is going to die, and while the assumption is that character will be Ed O'Neill's Jay Pritchett, that could also be viewed as the safe way to go. Executive producer Christopher Lloyd tells EW.com. “We’re handling some bigger life events in this season. 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.” He adds that the character, whoever it is, is a "significant" one

A Major Character is Going To be Killed Off in Modern Family; Who Could It Be?

The ABC series Modern Family has been delivering solidly funny comedy for the past nine seasons. I enjoy watching this show and now there’s word that a major character is about to meet their demise.

Co-creator Christopher Lloyd revealed to Entertainment Weekly that a “significant” character will die in the upcoming 10th Season of the family comedy. He explained:

“We’re handling some bigger life events in this season. 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.”
