It's the holy grail for 'Star Wars' fans: the original theatrical releases of 'A New Hope,' 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi' on DVD and Blu-ray. Right now, if you want to watch the theatrical versions of the original trilogy - without all the crap from the 1997 special editions - you have to own one of the original VHS copies, or find a bootleg rip of the 1985 Laserdisc. But, with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' headed to theaters from their new home at Disney, could the original theatrical releases finally be commercially available for the first time in over 20 years?

An actress got bigger boobs to get a part in a movie. Yeah, we know what you're thinking: not exactly breaking news for Hollywood. But, few actresses have done what the petite Agnes Bruckner did to star as the voluptuous Anna Nicole Smith. To achieve Anna Nicole's, uh, ample frame, Bruckner, who calls herself "flat-chested," didn't get breast implants, she wore prosthetic boobs.
Bruckner spent over four hours every day prior to shooting having the state-of-the-art prosthetics applied by three-time Oscar-winner Greg Cannom, whose previous work includes turning Robin Williams into a woman and Brad Pitt into an old man.
We spoke to Bruckner last week, where she talked at length about the "physical challenges" the character presented, and how that transformation impacted her own feelings about her body.

Though ABC classic 'The Wonder Years' has been available to stream on Netflix in recent years, fans of the Fred Savage coming-of-age tale have no doubt noticed something amiss about the reproduction, specifically music replacements of the more iconic tracks included in the show. The series' prolific soundtrack and the expensive cost of licensing those songs had kept an official 'The Wonder Years' DVD on the shelf, but with the rights finally cleared away, the Arnold family will at long last come to home video!
