Here are five fascinatingly different versions of famous Disney movies that almost came to pass, only to be consigned to the idea bin of history. Disney had been trying to make a version of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale ‘The Snow Queen’ since the late 1930s, but every attempt had run aground. In 2008, the project was revived again and even had some cast – ‘Will & Grace’ star Megan Mullally was onboard as Elsa (then a flat-out villain) and Josh Gad, who did eventually play snowman Olaf in the finished film.
Actor Liev Schreiber attended Comic-Con this year, and brought along his 8- and 9-year-old sons. The San Diego Comic-Con (which, believe it or not, used to actually feature comic books) is an annual celebrity fest these days. One such notable, Liev Schreiber, was in attendance this year, partly to promote, but also to parent.
Jordana Brewster is putting the Fast and Furious franchise in her rearview mirror. The Fate of the Furious opens Friday with the splashy new addition of Charlize Theron, but without Brewster, who played Mia from the early days.
On April 19, 2002, Johnson took his first tentative steps from wrestler to movie star when he headlined The Scorpion King, a feature film based around a character he had originated a year earlier in the opening sequence of The Mummy Returns. First some backstory: Johnson learned the Scorpion King would be getting his own feature after only a few days of shooting The Mummy Returns. “I had things coming up out of my body I could not even describe!” Fortunately, news of The Scorpion King standalone feature helped the medicine go down.
Leno throws shade at President Trump, saying, "Is he that thin-skinned? You know, if this guy was any more of a pussy, he could grab himself."
"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" cooked up a pretty funny parody of "Girls" and "The Golden Girls" Wednesday. He called the sketch a reunion special for "Girls," which ends a six-season run April 16.
Alec Baldwin and producer Dana Brunetti have very different recollections of who knew what when they shot Mini's First Time with a 16-year-old Nikki Reed 11 years ago.
Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes have been secretive about their romance. For three and a half years, rumors have swirled that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are an official item, but catching them together has been tougher than getting a picture of Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and the Chupacabra having high tea together. Looking casual in glasses with her hair pulled back, Holmes, 38, appeared to be perusing a menu, while Foxx, 49, sits with his back to the sneaky snapper.
Shia LaBeouf’s ‘Man Down’ is a spectacular flop. According to The Guardian, the latest Shia LaBeouf flick managed a meagre £7 at the UK box office… but it might not be as bad as it sounds. “Signature’s theatrical distribution of Shia LaBeouf war movie Man Down may be fairly termed token – it opened on Friday in just one venue, concurrent with release on digital platforms,” they revealed.
Sandra Bullock and Jesse James were all smiles at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2010. Everyone deals with mistakes differently, and Jesse James certainly has his own way of looking at the past. The divorce scandal engulfed James’s life, which led him to leave Los Angeles and his Hollywood world behind.
Daniel Kaluuya, the British actor and star of Jordan Peele‘s hit horror movie Get Out, defended his casting in the film that explores racial issues in the U.S. While Jackson defended his remarks as not a criticism of black British actors but just a question about Hollywood, Kaluuya, who rose to fame in the U.K. on TV shows such as Skins and Babylon and will soon appear in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther and was recently cast as the lead in Steve McQueen‘s Widows, addressed the complaint. “Big up Samuel L. Jackson, because here’s a guy who has broken down doors.
Anyone who’s seen My Cousin Vinny, which opened 25 years ago, on March 13, 1992, can probably quote at least one of Marisa Tomei’s Brooklyn-accented lines, whether it’s her biological clock “ticking like this” or her reaction to arriving in small-town Alabama. (“I bet the Chinese food here is terrible.”) As Mona Lisa Vito, the auto mechanic fiancée of Joe Pesci’s title character, Tomei walked away with every single one of her scenes — and eventually, the film’s only Academy Award (for Best Supporting Actress).
In the wake of the unprecedented Best Picture announcement snafu, the real winner has been robbed of the headline it deserved: “Moonlight” made history last night. The night’s biggest prize went to Barry Jenkins’s drama about three phases in the life of a gay African-American male — played as an adult by Trevante Rhodes, as a teenager by Ashton Sanders, and a boy by Alex Hibbert. Here are just a few of the ways “Moonlight” broke the mold.
At the conclusion of Sunday night’s Academy Awards, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that "La La Land" had won Best Picture — which would have been all well and good, except that the actual winner was "Moonlight." It was an awards show error for the ages. It was not, however, the first time such a thing happened at the Oscars.
Other than those directly involved with director Barry Jenkins’s acclaimed drama "Moonlight," no one, it seemed, was happier about the Best Picture error than Steve Harvey.
Warren Beatty’s oops moment made the audience gasp. When it comes down to it, stripping away the gold statues, the acceptance speeches, and the orchestra playing winners off the stage, the Oscars are just one big party. 1. Warren Beatty and the in-house audience were just as confused as the rest of us about the Best Picture snafu.

With the past two films in the Mission: Impossible franchise — 2011’s Ghost Protocol and 2015’s Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise has upped the insane-stunt ante. Rogue Nation’s opening sequence memorably featured the star hanging off an airborne plane, a stunt that, by his own admission, was his most dangerous to date. Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie recently spoke to Empire‘s podcast about trying to top that Rogue Nation opener.
