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.

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.

Jack Black Confirms That Robin Williams’ ‘Jumanji’ Character Has a Role (of Sorts) in Remake

With so many massive studio tentpoles springing up all over, you’d be forgiven for letting the gestating Jumanji remake slip your mind. The rework of the ’90s kid-friendly fantasy film, playing under the somewhat unwieldy title Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (yeah, tack the tagline right onto the title, why not!) will come to theaters December 20, but prying eyes have already ensnared some key details about the film. There was the whole brouhaha surrounding Karen Gillan’s hilariously impractical jungle outfit and her mealy-mouthed explanation as to why her character had to get all hotted up for a nature expedition, a controversy I have dubbed Midriffgate, and now today brings news of another curious detail of story.

Elizabeth Banks Issues Apology to Steven Spielberg Following Gender Disparity Comments

A celebrity ritual no less time-honored than the public callout, the public apology is a vital part of being and remaining famous. Think of it like an annual physical, but for your public profile: say something wild enough to grab some headlines and ensure that your name’s sticking in the population’s heads, let it sit for a short while, and once the time is right, issue a dignified apology to show humility and self-awareness. It’s a rich Hollywood tradition, and Elizabeth Banks is the latest personality to run this gauntlet. But when you come at the king, and most especially when that king is literal King of Hollywood Steven Spielberg, you best not miss.

‘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.

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ TV Spot: No Mercy, No Peace

War for the Planet of the Apes marks the conclusion of Caesar’s story, and the beginning of a new world. Whether that means a world of apes or humans remains to be seen (I mean, we know, but let’s just pretend). A new TV spot invites us to “witness the end” of the series, and of one species’ tenure on a dying planet.

That being said, there’s some pretty interesting narratives emerging in the how and why of this weekend’s box office report. Let’s take a look at the rankings as of Sunday afternoon and dive into some of the specifics:

Get Wrapped Up in These Secrets of ‘The Mummy’ Series

Bram Stoker is famous as the creator of Dracula in his 1897 novel. But did you know that Stoker also wrote a novel that became the basis for a movie about the Mummy? It’s true; Stoker’s The Jewel of Seven Stars, became the basis for the 1971 Hammer horror movie Blood From the Mummy’s Tomb. That’s just one of the spookily scarifying facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
