Chris Farley

Before ]Mike Myers ever voiced the titular Shrek for four very successful films and a few TV specials, the late Chris Farley was tapped to play the lovable green ogre. In fact, reports say that the comedian had actually recorded up to 95% of the voice work before his passing. With that in mind, one has to wonder what would have the film sounded like had DreamWorks animation just released it.

Now a newly released video is showing how widely different the one Farley voiced would have been had the animated studio just stuck with it as opposed to the one Myers voiced. Check it out below.

Well, folks…this is actually happening.

Remember back when we found out about the “this has to be a joke, right?” sequel to the 1988 comedy Twins, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as polar opposite twin brothers, in which Eddie Murphy would star as a third brother?

It sounded like a bad April Fools joke at the time, but, as it turns out, the movie, which will be titled Triplets, is very real. A pair of writers have signed on to pen the script, and things are moving forward.

Twins

1988’s Twins is one of many guilty pleasures born of the ’80s that plenty of people have seen and enjoyed for what it is. It’s not a movie, however, that anyone ever expected to see a sequel for.

Billy Crystal Oscar

In an effort to delete the previous week’s events and get things moving in the right direction again, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced that none other than Billy Crystal, one of the greatest Academy Awards host ever to take the stage, will be returning for a 9th time to replace the recently departed Eddie Murphy.

Just yesterday it was reported that Brett Ratner had stepped down as a producer of the 84th annual Academy Awards ceremony after a gay slur and other poor speaking decisions rightfully saw him in boiling water. At the time it appeared that Eddie Murphy—Ratner’s choice to host the awards—would still be taking on the job, but the Academy was now on a desperate search for a replacement producer.

Tower Heist

We’ve heard talks about plans to try offering big Hollywood movies on demand not too long after they’re released in theaters for a while now, and it looks like those who support the idea are ready to test the waters.

According to the LA Times, Universal Pictures will offer up Brett Ratner‘s new movie, Tower Heist, three weeks after its November 4, 2011 theatrical release through Universal parent company Comcast’s on demand services. The movie will only be available to 500,000 customers in the Atlanta and Portland, Oregon areas to test the waters of this new option, and those of you who have this option will only have to throw down $59.99 to check the movie out.

Universal and Comcast will pay close attention to how well the movie does released this early and at this price, while firm eyes will also be focused on how offering a movie three weeks after theatrical release affects box office numbers.
