Mrs. Doubtfire 2
In Parts-Of-Your-Childhood-That-Refuse-To-Die news, it was announced this week that a "Mrs. Doubtfire" sequel is in the works. While Matthew Lawrence said he would actually be up for it, Mara Wilson — who you may remember as the star of "Matilda" as well as the youngest daughter in "Mrs. Doubtfire" — has already said she's NOT interested in being involved with the sequel. Most interestingly, Robin Williams will allegedly be involved (because what would a "Mrs. Doubtfire" film be without its main character?). It's hard to fathom how or what they'll do in the sequel, but maybe they'll take a page out of the "horror-film" version of the "Mrs. Doubtfire" trailer (see video above) and go that route.
Season Finales on TV
Although a few season finales have already aired, this week really kicked TV finales into high gear. Shows like "Community," "Scandal," "The Crazy Ones," and "Parenthood" all came to a close, with other shows to follow suit in the coming weeks. Some finales will be funny, some will be great, but undoubtedly, the most unnecessarily dramatic season finale has already aired: congratulations, "Scandal"! (See a teaser clip for last night's episode above.) With all of your shows ending, that's all the more reason to check out our binge-watching recommendation posts. We've got you covered for sci-fi/fantasy, drama, AND comedy.
X-Men: Days of Future Past
That other superhero franchise released a trailer for their latest film earlier this week. In just four days, it's racked up more than 7 million views on YouTube. The trailer finally gives X-Men fans a peek at how, exactly, the films merge the old X-Men films (featuring the likes of Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier and Sir Ian McKellan as Magneto) with the newest movie (starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as the "young" versions of Professor X and Magneto, respectively). "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will definitely be a star-studded affair and, if you're a fan, likely a pretty good one at that.
