You might know that National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation was written by John Hughes, the guy behind ’80s classics like The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. But did you know that before Hughes became a filmmaker he was a contributor to the National Lampoon magazine? In fact, he based his Christmas Vacation screenplay on one of his old Lampoon pieces, “Christmas ’59.” That’s just one of the cheerful facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
After a winter that felt like it would never end (we’re still not entirely sure it ever did end), summer is finally here! OK, well the summer movie season is here anyway and with it comes sequels, reboots, remakes, prequels, adaptations, spinoffs and, if you look hard enough, some original movies too...
Alan Rickman, the tremendously talented British actor behind such iconic roles as Hans Gruber in Die Hard and Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films, has died at the age of 69 following a bout with cancer.
After three straight years of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting, the Golden Globes invited previous three-time host Ricky Gervais (2010-2012) to return for the 2016 awards show. Said Gervais back on January 1, “Because I can see the future, I’d like to apologise [sic] now for the things I said at next week’s Golden Globes. I was drunk & didn’t give a f---.” So, did Gervais wind up having anything to apologize for this year? If you missed it, you can watch his 2016 Golden Globes monologue above and decide for yourself.
Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in theaters and breaking every box-office record imaginable, it’s time to start looking ahead. Lucasfilm president Kathy Kennedy announced over the weekend that Star Wars: Episode 8 would begin filming in January with the entire cast (well, almost the entire cast…) set to return. But, what do we know about Star Wars: Episode 8 so far, and what questions from The Force Awakens can we expect to be answered in the next film? Let’s take a look at some things we can expect from Rian Johnson’s Star Wars follow-up.
Whether it’s Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead or The Hunger Games, you’ve surely seen one of the Bad Lip Reading videos on YouTube. They take a movie or TV show (or footage from football games) and re-record the dialogue with hilarious results. Today they’ve finally set their sights on the original Star Wars trilogy and they’ve brought along some famous friends for the ride.
When you’re out promoting a movie, you’re often asked to do a lot of things, most of them pretty silly. With the amount of press the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was being asked to do, there were asked to do a lot of silly things, none perhaps as silly as going on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and singing a medley of Star Wars music a cappella. But the entire cast — including Harrison Ford! — actually commits, and it actually turns out to pretty fun.
Home Alone was released in theaters on November 16, 1990. It was the #1 movie at the box office for an incredible 12 straight weeks. It stayed in the Top 10 until April. It played in theaters for nine months and earned over $477 million making it the highest grossing live-action comedy of all-time. (At least until The Hangover Part 2 came along). This is just one of the Home Alone facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
Are you guys starting to get a little sick of all the Star Wars ads, commercials, clips and appearances?

Sylvester Stallone became a star playing Rocky Balboa, but did you know that United Artists wanted to buy Stallone’s script for Rocky and cast another actor in the title role? Before they finally agreed to let Stallone have the part, they tried to cast actors like Robert Redford, Burt Reynolds, and James Caan. That’s just one of the facts crammed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes the distance on the original 1976 classic, Rocky.
Cult comedies that attempt to regroup for a sequel many years after the original film often have mixed success. You’ll probably find few people who like Anchorman 2 or Dumb and Dumber To as much as the originals. But, that hasn’t stopped Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson from returning for Zoolander 2 and, despite the odds, this actually looks really funny.
