Dana Edelson/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Netflix has released a trailer for A Very Murray Christmas, its upcoming Christmas special starring Bill Murray set to debut in December.

Danner added that she struggles with making "my brain and my fingers cooperate with the text. I'm just a mess."

While she believes she belongs in "another era," she does break her self-imposed Internet ban to read Paltrow's lifestyle website,

Paul Drinkwater/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Now that George Clooney is a married man, he's getting used to being asked repeatedly if he and wifeAmal Clooney are going to have kids.

"I just did a junket," Clooney said about his new film, Tomorrowland. "Each of the outlets has a different version of how to get to it. They'll be like, 'There's a kid, who plays you as a young guy George' and I go, 'Yeah.' [Then they go] 'Does it ever make you want to have a little George?'  There's always some way in."

"Poltergeist" - Fox(NEW YORK) — A few months back, a Poltergeist cast member described the movie to me as a “family adventure film.”  That hardly sounded appealing. Now that I’ve seen the movie, I know what the actor meant. It is a family adventure film, kind of, though not a particularly good one.  But more telling: it’s Poltergeist.  It should be a horror film.
The original Poltergeist from 1982 is a classic. It’s an incredibly creepy film without being graphic or bloody — a good old-fashioned horror thriller and very much a product of its era.  This ...Read more
