Hank Deutschendorf, Baby Oscar of ‘Ghostbusters II,’ Dies at 28

Just last week, we were commemorating the anniversary of the release of Ghostbusters II, which opened in theaters on June 16, 1989. The movie came out 28 years ago, which means the twin babies who played Sigourney Weaver’s son Oscar in the film were about that age too. That makes this story even sadder; TMZ reports that Hank Deutschendorf has died of an apparent suicide.

Report: Ron Howard the Frontrunner to Finish ‘Han Solo’

We’re still reeling from the news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller have walked off (or been fired from) the Han Solo spinoff Star Wars anthology film, but this movie has a release date in less than a year, and it is coming to theaters, with Lord/Miller or not. Although the news that the directing duo was not finishing Han Solo was announced today, the search for a replacement was already underway. Deadline says that Lucasfilm’s top pick at the moment is Ron Howard, the Oscar-winning filmmaker of movies like Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, and The Da Vinci Code:

Warners Finds No Misconduct on Set of ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ Show Will Resume Production

This is big: TMZ reports that Warner Bros. has concluded its investigation into the allegations of “misconduct” on the set of Bachelor in Paradise earlier this month. Shooting was suspended after a producer supposedly refused to show to work and then “went on to sue” the production. Rumors suggested that an altercation between contestants Demario Jackson and Corrine Olympios may have gone too far, with Olympios possibly too intoxicated to consent to sexual activity with Jackson. “I am a victim,” Olympios later said in a statement.

Vin Diesel’s ‘xXx’ Will Return Again

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage only made $44 million in the U.S. last January against a reported $85 million budget. But it also grossed an incredible $301 million overseas, where star Vin Diesel remains an even bigger draw than he is here in the States. Weird belly tattoos, it seems, are the international language of love.

Get Ready for a New Spin on Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Movies

It’s happened to all of us. You’re watching the movie, and you’re into it, and then... a character makes a catastrophic mistake. They run upstairs when they should go out the front door. They bring the Transformer back to life rather than leaving it in a dump where they found it. They break quarantine when they’ve been screaming for the last 20 minutes how now matter what happens, they can’t let the virus escape. And you sit there, squirming in your seat, because there’s nothing you can do about it.

How Well Do You Know Pixar?

Everyone knows Pixar as one of the premiere animation studios on the planet. But did you know Pixar was originally part of Lucasfilm? It’s true; before Pixar became a separate company it was a division of George Lucas’ company, where it worked on creating computer technology that could be used in special effects. Its early work included some of the first computer-generated special effects in movies, including Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Young Sherlock Holmes. That’s one of the facts featured in this all-Pixar edition of You Think You Know Movies!

Watch the Bat-Signal Light Up Los Angeles in Tribute to Adam West

In the most fitting tribute imaginable, the Bat-Signal lit up the skies of Los Angeles last night, in honor of the late Adam West, the first Batman of television, and one of the most beloved versions of the iconic Dark Knight (or the “Bright Knight,” as West liked to describe his more upbeat version of the character). West died of leukemia late last week; he was 88 years old.

‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’ Trailer: Meet the Man Who Made Winnie the Pooh

Filmmakers love the story beyond the story; biopics about authors making the great works of literature that have inspired generations. Maybe it’s an easy way to give a mainstream marketing hook to an otherwise crusty and “arty” awards-fodder biopic? There was Finding Neverland and Saving Mr. Banks and now Goodbye Christopher Robin, the tale of how author A.A. Milne (played in the film by Star Wars’ Domhnall Gleeson) created the world of Winnie the Pooh.

New Report Blames ‘The Mummy’s Problems on Tom Cruise‘s ‘Excessive Control’

Critics were split on whether The Mummy was the worst film of Tom Cruise’s career. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it’s one of the two worst reviewed Cruise films, with a pitiful 16 percent approval rating. The only previous Cruise effort with a crappier RT score is Cocktail, which has a lowly 5 percent (although it’s worth noting Rotten Tomatoes did not exist when that film was released, and its sampling of reviews that are available online in 2017 may not be complete or entirely accurate representation of all the reviews it got in 1988.)
