“Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg.” Who can’t help but feel nostalgic when one hears those opening lyrics. The DuckTales show intro is one of the most memorable during the 80s. YouTube user Oh My Disney thinks so as well. They’ve recreated the classic show intro but using real ducks.

Check out the real-life versions of Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie below recreate memorable scenes from the cartoon. If you’re a fan of the original series, this is a must watch.

Stretch was originally set to hit theaters in March 2014, but Universal scrapped it. The film’s producer was allowed to shop it around, but to no avail. Universal took it back, but is now only releasing it on Amazon and iTunes on October 7 and VOD on October 14. Naturally, they’re going with the sex sells approach.

In an exclusive clip shared with JustJared.com, the film debuts a gag reel. Chris Pine plays an eccentric billionaire trying to sell his book of criminal contacts during a night gone wrong.

Patrick Wilson, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker and Ed Helms round out the cast. Watch the clip below where Chris shows off a little side butt. Happy Friday ;)

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are today’s answer to Bogart and Bacall. The two have undeniable chemistry and whenever they team up, magic occurs.

Their previous two collaborations, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, both scored Best Picture Oscar nods and acting nominations for each. Lawrence walked away with the Best Actress Oscar statue for the former. This Fall, the two star in their third film, the first without David O. Russell directing them together. That honor goes to Susanne Bier.

Serena is based on Ron Rash’s 2008 novel of the same name. J. Law and Bradley play newlyweds heading to North Caolina to build a timber empire in the 1930s. Serena (Lawrence) eventually learns she can’t conceive children, and quickly becomes obsessed with George’s (Cooper) relationship with his illegitimate son.

Angelina Jolie was originally slated to play Serena when Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct. The film is set to premiere at the London Film Festival. Rhys Ifans and Sean Harris round out the cast. Check out the trailer below.

HBO Rejects Ryan Murphy’s Lesbian Drama

Believe it or not, someone said ‘no’ to Ryan Murphy. Even more shocking, it’s HBO. Definitely surprising given their recent successful and critically-acclaimed collaboration with The Normal Heart. The network revealed it opted out of Murphy’s sexually-charged drama, Open.

“After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter’s sources, HBO wanted to tweak the drama, but Murphy didn’t want to change the pilot. Open was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

Cecily Strong Replaced As SNL Weekend Update Anchor

After two years co-anchoring Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, Cecily Strong has been ousted. She will, however, remain as a regular cast member.

The 30-year-old joined Seth Meyers at the famed desk during the 38th Season and sat alongside Colin Jost last season. It appears, the big boss wasn’t happy with their chemistry or lack thereof. In a rather surprising move, Strong is the one being replaced and not newbie Jost.

“It struggled to find an identity last season… because what had come before had been pretty brilliant,” Lorne added. “This is about a new era, what feels appropriate for now. That’s why we did a lot of combinations and tests, and this is kind of where we came out.”

With Summer unofficially over, Calvin Harris has finally released the follow up to his smash, “Summer.” The Scottish DJ steps away from the mic this time around and lets John Newman take over the vocals. Newman is best known for his debut single “Love Me Again.” “Blame” is another winner for Harris and primed to be another chart-topper.

The Emil Nava-directed video begins with Harris and Newman at their respective mansions with scantily-clothed women around them. After that, it’s a bunch of random scenes of attractive people partying in the club. I suppose the clip’s narrative is that the nightlife and copious amounts of drinking are to blame for their tricks. All in all, it’s pretty par for the course for an EDM track. Give it a watch below.

Holy lookalike Batman. While the stand-ins for Beyonce, NeNe Leakes, Solange Knowles, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are a little busted up, the Mariah Carey impersonator is on point. Honestly at times, I thought I was looking at the real Mimi. I guarantee you will to. An impeccable job in casting indeed.

Todrick Hall previously filmed a Chicago parody featuring famed Disney characters performing “Cell Block Tango.” He once again looks to the musical for inspiration. But this time with a little Orange Is The New Black spice with Leakes as the HWIC (head warden in charge).

Watch the ladies explain what they exactly did to get them locked up. Here’s a little hint with Mariah’s crime. It has something to do with Ariana Grande’s ponytail. The Carey bit is the best, along with the Beyonce and Solange parts. Hall has another viral hit on his hands. Definitely check out “Cell Black Django” below.

Married With Children Spinoff In The Works

Married … With Children was one of the first original series on FOX. The series catapulted its stars Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino to stardom. Nearly 20 years after the sitcom ended, there’s plans to develop a spinoff.

E! reports that Sony Pictures, the studio behind the original series, is taking out a pitch for a follow-up based on Bud Bundy’s character. No word if the original stars are attached to the project, but here’s hoping they make future cameos should the comedy be picked up.

Married With Children is just the latest classic hit getting new life. Warner Bros is shopping around a Full House revival, not to mention Disney Channels’ successful reboot of Boy Meets World with its sequel, Girl Meets World.

The news comes on the heels of Sagal receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier this week. Her former Children castmates showed up to support her. Check out their reunion below, after reading O’Neill’s words about his former on-screen wife.

“I’m gonna say something that’s never done much in Hollywood, I’m going to say something nice about my ex-wife,” O’Neill said on the Walk of Fame podium. “I met Katey in 1986. We were both trying out for the parts of Al and Peg Bundy on ‘Married With Children.’ … We grew together as a cast and good friends and we see the whole family is here today. I was there when Katey won the Golden Globe for ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I was proud of her before. I was proud of her then and I’m proud of her today.”
