This week marks the 75th anniversary of 'The Wizard of Oz,' the classic 1939 film that stands out in the minds of many as one of the greatest films in cinema history. But what you may have forgotten is Disney's often overlooked 1985 sequel, 'Return to Oz' -- the arguably more faithful but much darker and totally terrifying follow-up that eschewed the musical elements and the vibrant colors to embrace metaphors about childhood trauma and escapist fantasies ... you know, for kids.

There have been various new 'King Arthur' projects in the works for a while now, but the latest incarnation will put Guy Ritchie behind the camera to kick off the first in a planned series of six films -- and they've just found their leading man: 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Pacific Rim' star Charlie Hunnam has been crowned the king.
While he's currently working on a series about the 70s music scene for HBO, Martin Scorsese has his eye on another fixture of the era: punk icons The Ramones.

'Breaking Bad' may be over, but there's still plenty of love to go around for the series at tonight's 2014 Emmy Awards, as Bryan Cranston has just been given the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Other nominees included Oscar winners Kevin Spacey for 'House of Cards' and Matthew McConaughey for 'True Detective.'
Amid all the celebrations and laughter during Sunday night's 2014 Emmy Awards, there was one larger-than-life presence that was sorely missed: the late, great Robin Williams. And following the annual In Memoriam segment to honor the famous faces we've lost over the last year, Billy Crystal took the stage to honor his longtime friend and fellow comedian in a moving and heartfelt tribute.
Right before Comic-Con 2014, rumor had it that Marvel wanted Joaquin Phoenix to play the leading role in their 'Doctor Strange' film -- which was some pretty magical timing, all things considered. Since then, we haven't heard a peep, and now comes word that the studio has their eye on another possible leading man: 'Boardwalk Empire' star Jack Huston, whom you might not recognize unless he's missing half of his face.
It's been a little while since we've heard anything about the new 'Vacation' sequel/reboot with former 'Office' star Ed Helms playing a grown-up Rusty Griswold -- but rest assured, this 'Vacation' is still very much happening, and has just packed up two very awesome accessories: 'Thor' star Chris Hemsworth and 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star Charlie Day. This is going to be the best 'Vacation' ever!
