- Page 1

Paramount Pictures

Yes, it's been 13 short years since Hollywood remade Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, so that must mean it's time for another try.

The original film based on the Roald Dahl novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is considered a classic children's film, and the late Gene Wilder's performance as the quirky chocolate maker is remembered as the best role of his career.


Of course, if you grew up watching the original movie, you probably have some strong feelings about the 2005 remake starring Johnny Depp as the famous chocolateer.

Warner Brothers

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's


'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent


Where Are The Cast Members From 'A League Of Their Own' Now?

A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
