Superman's secret identity may come as a bit of a shock. Watch Now »
Pixar is about once again show other animation studios how it's done with this weekend's release of "Monsters University," which chronicles the college years of Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sullivan (John Goodman) as they hone their scary skills in the haunted halls of academia. Get More »
You may have seen the Gillette ad campaign for "Man of Steel," which asks "How Does Superman Shave?" — a question that has probably inadvertently sold quite a few razor blades whether there's really a legit answer to it or not (ours is "Like everybody else," but hey).
Ad campaigns and product placement are unavoidable parts of the big business of Hollywood, especially when it comes to summer blockbusters that will lure several million potential consumers. Several companies vie for some sort of lucrative cross-promotional deal with a film, hoping that the sight of a movie star (and/or superhero) will up the profits of their wares. Sometimes it works ... and sometimes it never happens.
Here are six ad campaigns for "Man of Steel" that never made it past the make-believe stage. Check 'em out, and then go book that flight on Delta anyway.
When you start seeing numbers like "6" after certain movie titles, as is the case with the recent smash "Furious 6," it really begs the question: "How much longer can this go on?"
The answer is an infinity symbol (∞), and if you don't believe us then take a look at this infographic that displays the longest-running franchises in Hollywood history to date, the ones that just didn't know when to say "Enough." Get More »
"We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives ..." — Criswell, "Plan 9 From Outer Space" (1959)
Some (actually quite a few) sci-fi films are more than just pieces of escapist entertainment. Some of them are freakin' prophets, don'tcha know, making predictions about what life will be like once we reach the year in which the particular film takes place. Get More »
Oh man, what if Jason Bateman woke up one morning and found the posters that adorn his bedroom walls (you know his bedroom is decorated with his own movie posters) were replaced with these?
In "Identity Thief" (on DVD & Blu-ray now), Melissa McCarthy steals Bateman's credit card number and, from there, his very identity. But what if she didn't stop there? What if she continued her extortion of all that is Bateman beyond just the movie they starred in together? What if she snatched all of his movies (and at least one television show)?
Did you ever get so frustrated playing Pictionary that you threw all the paper and markers in the garbage and lit the board on fire? We feel your pain — and that's why we've taken all the effort of having to articulate clues through one-minute Sharpie drawings and eliminated the middle man with our collection of Pictionary movie drawings.
All you have to do is guess which popular movies these ten drawings represent without yelling at your spouse that they "can't draw worth s**t." Truth be told, we can't really draw, either ... Good Luck!
Alfonso Ribeiro was always a good sport on "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," usually allowing his fame-hungry co-star to steal every scene all to and fro like he was bound and determined to soon become one of the biggest celebrities on the planet or something. But what if Carlton Banks had been a bit more alpha male and grabbed some if not all of the spotlight for himself?
Upon the aftermath of "After Earth," here we imagine a Hollywood in which Ribeiro became a movie star of, well, Will Smith proportions. Hey, at least Martin Lawrence would've had a partner who was more his size.
There have been many visions of many possible future worlds throughout the years in cinema, from the dystopian totalitarian hellhole of, uh, "1984" to the deceptive Eloi-inhabited 'paradise' of "The Time Machine" (which took place in the year 802,701, for the record). Most of these visions of the future have been bleak and aggressive — and some even eerily prophetic (though thankfully not "The Terminator" — for now, anyway). Get More »
We know that "Fast & Furious 7" is going to feature a very special villain played by a very special action star who knows a thing or two about driving himself (okay, we'll stop there for those of you who haven't seen "Furious 6" yet). But where is Universal going to go with "Fast & Furious 8"? Might it be time to reach out to a brand-new demographic?
If nothing else, this would make a heck of an attraction at the Universal Studios theme parks.

Well, let's see ... considering the speed at which the cars and the plane were going and the fact that they were hauling ass for the better part of 13 minutes worth of screen time, we estimate the runway at the end of "Fast & Furious 6" is about the same length as the distance from New York City to, oh, Cleveland, Ohio.
