Before becoming a movie classic, Back to the Future was rejected over 40 times, with one of the most notable rejections coming from Disney. Disney believed the movie was too risqué for their family-oriented audiences, specifically the part about Marty meeting his mom in 1955. Columbia Pictures had just produced Animal House and Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and their executives said it was too tame for their audiences and passed on it, too. Universal Studios eventually bought the rights and it became the highest-grossing film of 1985...and was nominated for several Academy Awards.


Angela Bassett continues to be honored for her work in the industry. The 64-year-old will receive the 2023 Distinguished Artisan Award from the Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild on Feb. 11. The award highlights her bold collaborations with over 706 makeup and hair teams to create a career’s worth of memorable movie looks. That’s after winning both a Golden Globe last Tuesday and a Critics Choice Award on Sunday for best supporting actress in a motion picture, both for her role as ‘Queen Ramonda’ in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”.

Danai Gurira is teasing that her Marvel character ‘Okoye’ will be getting a spinoff Disney+ show. The “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” actress stopped by “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, where she was asked if she could confirm reports of a spinoff show featuring her popular character. Hesitant at first, Gurira eventually told Colbert, “I have been told that I can gently allude to this possibility. So, I am gently alluding, just gently.” Disney hasn’t confirmed the show, but it was reported that Gurira would reprise her Black Panther role in a spinoff series for Disney+ by The Hollywood Reporter in 2021.

With the revival of the “Night Court” series recently premiering, Bryan Cranston hopes you’re in the mood for another classic sitcom revival. Cranston has confirmed that discussions are underway about reuniting the cast of “Malcolm in the Middle”. He told E! News that there is “some talk about the possibility of doing like a reunion movie”. Cranston, who played hapless dad ‘Hal’ on the Fox sitcom, feels that the cast of the show was so great, it “would be fantastic to explore what happened to this family 20 years later.”

You’re familiar with the acronym F.O.M.O. (Fear Of Missing Out). Well, move over, FOMO, because F.O.S.Y. is here. What’s FOSY? The Fear Of Saying Yes. And it does hit a mark. Many people struggle with saying “no” to friends, family, and colleagues when asked to do something. In fact, according to a new survey, more than half of adults regularly deal with FOSY. Psychologist Emma Kenny says FOSY is linked to the emotions we experience when faced with opportunities that push us outside our comfort zone. She explains that when we feel it might be a situation where we’ll be judged or not do well at something, “our instinctive, knee-jerk reaction is to say ‘no.’” A poll found the average adult says no to something they actually want to do every 10 days. This fear of saying yes means 35% think they have missed out on making new friends, while 33% have avoided going out on a date. And 32% say it has held them back from trying a new hobby.
