Believe it or not, the modern Christmas Classic Love Actually is 20 years old this year and is coming back to theaters to celebrate the anniversary.
“Love Actually, writer/director Richard Curtis’s 2003 film about the various personal entanglements of several London couples, has often pulled double duty. It’s considered not only one of the best romantic comedies of all time but one of the best Christmas movies. And now it’s set for a 20th anniversary re-release.”
For those worried that Disney would cut dwarves out of their upcoming Snow White remake, don’t fret. However, they are CGI abominations.
“Disney has officially unveiled the first still for its live-action remake of Snow White, revealing a glimpse at Rachel Zegler as Snow White, alongside her trusty, CGI seven dwarves. This is the first time the live-action dwarves have surfaced in their entirety, fully created from CGI effects. The photo sees Zegler, of West Side Story, Shazam: Fury of the Gods and most recently, The Hungers Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, seated in a cozy cottage, accompanied by Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, and Sneezy.

And based on the trailer, it also looks like one of the only movies in her filmography that will actually let her use some of the talents she showed off in the Star Wars movies.”
The Rangers went all in this offseason on expensive players and veteran coaches, and it paid off for them with a World Series title.
“Remember when fans, long ago, and baseball pundits told everyone that you couldn’t buy a World Series? It was more water-carrying for a majority of owners who didn’t want to spend, but it was baseball truth that a team couldn’t sign free agents all over the field and watch it all come together to win a championship.”
