In the classic movie, Forrest wonders aloud, was his life a tribute to destiny or accidents. Then he shrugged off the question: "Maybe it's both." But dumb ol' Forrest was right. (As always.) Both theories boil down to fate, and Forrest Gump may be the most curiously fated film in modern history.

Hal Douglas, the voiceover artist known for his iconic narration in trailers for films including "Forrest Gump," "Philadelphia," and "Lethal Weapon," died Friday at his home in Virginia. He was 89.

Douglas popularized the use of the phrase "In a world..." in his narration, becoming one of the most recognizable voices in film. He also frequently lent his vocals to TV commercials and series. Though his booming voice and go-to catchphrases were sometimes mocked as cliche, Douglas was widely respected in Hollywood, and even poked fun at himself in the trailer for Jerry Seinfeld's 2002 documentary "Comedian."

If internet memes were movie stars
Interesting
Internet memes. They're in our computers. They're in our email attachments. How long before they're in our cinemas too? Tremble upon this vision of the future of movies, where the stars of the internet are more popular than the stars of Hollywood. Tremble I say.
