There's now a cure for the deadly genetic disorder known as 'bubble-boy' disease

Babies who are born with X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (XSCID) don't have disease-fighting immune cells. For them, the outside world is an intensely dangerous place.  XSCID was nicknamed "bubble-boy" disease because of a young boy named David Vetter, who famously lived his entire life in a protective plastic bubble. Vetter died more than 30 years ago at age 12 after a failed treatment.  St. Jude scientists just announced that they have successfully cured babies with XSCID, using a ...

A "Grease" prequel is in development

A prequel to the iconic 1971 musical and 1978 movie Grease is in development at Paramount. Written by John August (Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), the new film, titled Summer Loving, will tell the story of Danny and Sandy's summer romance at the beach as famously recounted from two different perspectives in the original movie's song "Summer Nights." I only wish Summer Loving would be an animated feature in the style of John D. Wilson's incredible opening titles to the original G...

‘Grease’ Prequel ‘Summer Loving’ Gearing Up at Paramount with Writer John August

41 years after the mega-popular musical Grease first cruised into theaters and 37 years after its sequel debuted, a Grease prequel is in development at Paramount Pictures. John August (Big Fish, Go) is writing the screenplay, which will focus on the initial meeting between the slick, leather-jacket-clad “greaser” Danny Zuko (played by John Travolta in the original) and the innocent high school student Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John). The big question, of course, is why does a prequel about th...

Well before singer-songwriter Michael Bublé took the stage at Staples Center during his latest An Evening With Michael Bublé Tour on Tuesday night, April 2, his fans filed in early, dressed to the nines and ready for a little pre-show cocktail hour. They really classed up the joint, where just the evening before the Los Angeles Kings hockey team lost 7-2 to the Calgary Flames. “When I hear the word romance, I also think hockey arena,” the 43-year-old Canadian said to the audience.

These are the 12 weirdest Oscar moments

The weirdest thing to ever happen on stage at the Academy Awards was a huge mistake, and it’s hard to imagine it will ever be topped. What could be bigger, after all, than announcing the wrong movie as the winner of the Oscar for best picture? Boo-boos don’t get any bigger than that, and the screams and hollers that erupted in 2017 inside the Kodak Theatre and homes around the world were entirely justified. The cast and creators of “La La Land” got to enjoy their Oscar for roughly 2 minutes and ...

How Scientology Helped John Travolta Through His Son’s Death

They kept the faith. When John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s teenage son Jett died from a seizure in 2009, the pair didn’t know how they were going to survive without him. “It’s the worst thing that’s ever happened in my life,” the actor has said. “The truth is, I didn’t know if I was going to make it.” John Travolta and Kelly Preston pose on May 15, 2018 during a photocall for the film “Gotti” at the 71st edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, southern France.

‘Trading Paint’ Trailer: John Travolta is a Washed-Up Race Car Driver

John Travolta‘s film choices have become increasingly, let’s say…interesting. After the 2018 two-fer that was Gotti and Speed Kills, the actor is ringing in 2019 with Trading Paint, a sports drama in which he stars as a washed-up race car driver for whom it’s “been a long time” since he was “somebody.” Cheers for unintentionally meta-dialogue!

Glenn Miller’s death plane, Robert Durst’s cannibal appetites, and exploding heads in this week’s dubious tabloids

There are trace elements of facts in many of this week’s tabloids stories, but that hasn’t stopped the rags’ alchemists from spinning gold out of these barely-detectable sub-atomic particles. George Clooney and wife Amal have purchased an estate on the Italian isle of Sardinia, but because she’s there with their twins and George is away, the National Enquirer cover story proclaims: “Clooney Divorce Explodes – Amal Moves Out!” She has reportedly “fled their marital home in England” and “furious G...

2019 Razzie Nominations: ‘Gotti’, ‘Holmes & Watson’, Donald Trump & ‘Happytime Murders’ Among the Worst

Every year, there are plenty of awards honoring the best movies, but only the Golden Raspberry Awards tackle the worst of the worst. The 2019 Razzie nominations have just come in today, and it should come as no surprise that the universally panned Gotti starring John Travolta is one of the most nominated movies with six nods.

Zac Efron Now Has a Beard AND Platinum Blond Hair, and My Ovaries Are Bursting

To be frank, Zac Efron's been making me weak in the knees since his High School Musical days. But lately, he's been looking hotter than ever, thanks to a few grooming changes. Last year, the 31-year-old actor sprouted a scruffy beard that renewed my love for facial hair, and now it looks like he's kicking off 2019 by going platinum blond. New year, new hair, am I right? On Jan. 9, Efron shared a quick peek at his bleached hairstyle while posting a rock-climbing photo on Instagram. In the snap, a...
