Having passed away on February 24, 2014, Harold Ramis is someone who may be gone, but will certainly never be forgotten. Yet, on the contrary, there are a few moments from the Ghostbusters star’s career in front of the camera that may not be as well remembered.
Other than his other well-known starring roles, such as in Stripes or Baby Boom, some may better remember the celebrated comedic talent, who died at the age of 69 due to complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, from his iconic directorial efforts such as Caddyshack (his behind-the-camera debut), National Lampoon’s Vacation, Groundhog Day, and even the dark holiday comedy The Ice Harvest, to name a few. However, did you know that Harold Ramis also makes an onscreen appearance in a few of those aforementioned titles?
Light spoilers for Once Upon a Snowman lie ahead.
It’s been almost seven years since audiences were first introduced to the hilarious, sweet and warm hug-loving snowman, Olaf. The fan-favorite Frozen character has earned a special place in Disney fans’ hearts, and they’ve followed him on plenty of adventures since his debut. Now, in his latest outing, Disney+’s Once Upon a Snowman, fans will get to watch him take his first steps after being created by Elsa. But not only does the new short explore his origins, but it also gives him a moment that no Frozen film has.
Should this theory be true, there’s a chance that we’ll hear “Fantasy” not only recur in its original form, but also reinterpreted in anything from ambient noise and specially themed easter eggs, as well as woven into composer Christoph Beck’s Free Guy score in some fashion or another. None of this is confirmed right now, and honestly, whether these guesses are right or wrong, Shawn Levy and Ryan Reynolds might have a good-natured chuckle when reading this line of reasoning. It’s all part of the good natured suspense that’s going to lead audiences to see Free Guy when it finally presses start in theaters on December 11.
Larger sandworms likely exist, though. In the book, when Paul Atreides summoned a sandworm, it’s said the worm that came out of the desert sand “appeared to be around a half a league long and the rise of the sandwave at its cresting head was like the approach of a mountain.” A half a league is roughly 2,778 meters (or 9,121 ft) which is, of course, massive. On another occasion, when Paul met a sandworm for the first time, it was said, “Its mouth was some eighty meters in diameter…” All of this is to say that sandworms are huge on the desert planet of Arrakis.
Of the three theatrical Power Rangers movies that have been released over the last 25 years, only 1997’s Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie shared continuity with what the Power Rangers were doing on TV, with the movie basically serving as a pilot for the Turbo TV series. 1995’s Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie served as an alternate take on how the original Mighty Morphin’ team’s powers changed compared to what went down in the TV show, and 2017’s Power Rangers simply delivered fresh takes on Jason, Kimberly, Zack, Billy, Trini, Gordon, Alpha 5, Rita Repulsa and Goldar in the modern era.
No type of film sounds more appropriate for this time of the year than a spooky story, unlike every other month in which superhero movies remain the dominant genre, it seems. However, contrary to what many may realize, the link between horror and comic books is not so distant and there are already many screen adaptations to prove that, such as Spawn, The Crow, and even Creepshow, which was heavily inspired by EC Comics’ horror stories from the 1950s. One of the more beloved films to fall under this hybrid category is Blade – streaming now for fans of both worlds.
Back in March 2019, before the world was turned upside down, Sherlock Holmes 3 was already pushed back to December 22, 2021. Now with the current state of things, and Dexter Fletcher’s statement about the project being on the back burner, it’s highly likely that date will get pushed back even further.
Disneyland Resort and the state of California have been involved in a war of words in recent weeks as the theme park has been asking for the opportunity to reopen, and the state has been in no hurry to let theme parks reopen. Today, the long-awaited guidelines for theme parks were released by the state, which is the important first step that parks like Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood will need. However, those guidelines indicate it’s still going to be a while before those parks are able to open.
In a webcast from CHHS Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly, the doctor revealed that there will be two different sets of guidelines, one for “small” theme parks, and one for all others. Small parks will be able to open when their respective counties are in the “orange” tier of COVID-19 exposure, which is the second from the bottom of the color-coded system. Large theme parks, which includes places like Disneyland, will need to be in the “yellow” tier of exposure, which is the absolute lowest level. Currently, Orange County is in the “red tier” which is two tiers above where it will need to be
