Don Pardo, the man who introduced the 'SNL' lineup every week since 1975, has sadly passed away at the age of 96. Pardo also lent his voice to radio, sports, game shows, and commercials over the course of his incredibly long-running career, but we'll always remember him best for that wonderful phrase: "It's 'Saturday Night Live!'"
Why go to the movies when there are plenty of awesome new releases to enjoy in the comfort of your own home? The summer movie season may be coming to an end, but plenty of those movies are hitting the shelves so you can relive the magic. Read on for our guide to the best new DVD and Blu-ray releases coming your way in September 2014.
Summer may be over and the superheroes and blockbusters may be gone, but that doesn't mean there aren't still some great movies to be seen. Whether you're looking for action, comedy, drama, or something for the whole family, you'll find plenty to watch in our guide to the new movie releases hitting the big screen in September 2014.
As we reported last year, there's a sequel on the way to 'Olympus Has Fallen,' and in 'London Has Fallen,' the action will move from D.C. to -- wait for it -- London. Now the brand new film has a brand new director (but the same old cast) to help dismantle all that glorious old London architecture. If they don't use a chopped and screwed version of "London Bridge Is Falling Down," why do we even make movies anymore?
With 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' hitting DVD and Blu-ray in a couple of weeks, and 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' in the works, Marvel has set up a cool new viral site that neatly ties everything together (just like their movie universe). And fans will be rewarded handsomely for visiting the site to find out if they're on team S.H.I.E.L.D. or part of the nefarious Hydra organization.
The first TV spot for 'The Equalizer' is here, featuring Denzel Washington going pretty hard on some really crooked guys and a brand new song from Eminem and Sia. And in the grand tradition of Denzel Washington films, it looks like you do not want to get on his bad side, ever.
Just when you thought you were out, we pull you back in with even more 'Star Wars: Episode 7' news. On the heels of new revelations regarding the villains of J.J. Abrams' new installment in the franchise, we now also know which ship Harrison Ford's Han Solo will be piloting, as well as some other info about the various spacecrafts, Oscar Isaac's character, and more.
This week we've seen what appears to be photos of the Stormtroopers, as well as some concept art for Trooper designs from 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' but today brings some much, much bigger news: it seems that we might know who the villains (more than one!) are in the newest installment of the classic franchise.
In case you forgot, there were not one, but two 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' movies, and one of them starred Dwayne Johnson. And since everyone likes having their own franchise, Johnson will star in two more of these sequels, which have now hired the writers of 'The Conjuring.' We are now filled with the hope that perhaps these movies will take a dark turn and find Johnson and his young companions battling clapping ghosts.
Fans of last year's 'Texas Chainsaw' reboot/sequel will be happy to know that there is another installment on the way, but this time it's a prequel. And since it will focus on the origins of the most famous face in the franchise, it's been given the creative title of 'Leatherface.'
