Who better to review a movie about porn than a porn star? That's why we got the beautiful Allie Haze to share… Watch Now »
One of the best things about the legendary Ron Burgundy and his ragtag team of newsmen was the group's unending quotability.
Think about it. How many times did you hear someone quip "don't act like you're not impressed," invite you to a pants party or order some "scotchy scotch scotch" after "Anchorman" came out? How about advising you to "stay classy"? A lot? That's what we thought.
Everybody (at least, everyone on the internet) loves a good set of memes, and for obvious reasons we have a particular fancy for the movie-related sort. But apart from Tommy Lee Jones' pissed face at the Golden Globes, there's been very little opportunity to offer up a crossover with one of the web's best-ever meme creations, Grumpy Cat ... 'til now, that is.
Presenting Grumpy Cat animated in as various Disney characters. It's pretty much everything you've been waiting for...and then some. Get More »
Tim Burton hasn't exactly been riding high on an originality streak lately. His last movie that was not a sequel, remake or adaptation of some sort was 2005's "Corpse Bride," and before that it'd been almost 10 years.
Sure, it's hard to argue with the numbers — his "Alice in Wonderland" live-actioner brought in 10 figures — but something really special happens when the wild creativity of Tim Burton meets the kind of new material it is meant to (see also "Ed Wood," "Edward Scissorhands").
One such example was with 1988's "Beetlejuice," the namesake deadite of which comes out to play when accidentally summoned by some oddball new homeowners. And now, since absolutely nothing is sacred in Hollywood and all, Burton and lead actor Michael Keaton are ready to get going on the sequel. Get More »
Whether or not Tom Hiddleston's Loki bites the bullet (or gets beaten down by the hammer or whatever other Asgardian killing device comes along) in "Thor: The Dark World" remains to be seen. While he decidedly will not be badding it up in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," we do have not one but two reasons to believe he'll make it through "Thor 2."
Will he ever get his own solo movie, though? The Hiddlehotness has one good idea stored up just in case ... Get More »
The first teaser trailer for Constantine Films' 3D motion capture version of "Tarzan" was released just over a year ago, and while it was still a little rough around the edges, so to speak, it presented some morsel of promise for the animation end of this thing.
This new full-length trailer for the pic, however, kind of looks like something a kid might have just thrown together in his basement. Oof.
For the third weekend in a row, the team of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney dominated the box office, as according to Film.com "Gravity" easily took the top spot on the charts with an estimated $31 million.
That was more than enough to best both "Captain Phillips," which came in second for the second weekend in a row with $17.3 million, and the new horror remake "Carrie," which started strong but faded to third place with a $17 million debut.
And the news was even worse for the weekend's other new releases, as both "Escape Plan" (fifth place with $9.8 million) and "Fifth Estate" (a dismal eighth place with just $1.7 million) bombed out.
For a full run down of this weekend's box office top ten, head to Film.com.
Over the last few years, we've seen a ton of movie reboots coming out of Hollywood. Many hardcore fans groan in protest when a new one gets announced, but there's always enough curiosity that there's no reason to stop making them. With "Carrie" hitting theaters today and new "Godzilla" and "Robocop" films still in the works, it certainly doesn't seem like we'll see any less of them going forward. The team over at The Verge has put together a particularly awesome infographic that details the trends in reboot culture and what properties we could be seeing brand new on the big screen in the near future.
The most interesting thing that's pointed out here is that the reboots seem to be coming in cycles. Comic book film franchises, much like their source material, seem to reboot quicker than almost anything else. But, as the years have gone on, studios have had to go further and further back to find properties to relaunch. "Carrie" is a prime example, with this reboot coming nearly 40 years after the original.
A whole mess of factors goes into what projects a director takes on. A young up-and-comer might be happy just to get his first directing credit, regardless of what it might actually be about. A director who's been around the block might pick up a project way outside of their wheelhouse just for the experience. And the promise of a couple bucks doesn't hurt, either.
In other words, sometimes you just can't pin a filmmaker down. Here are some rather odd and unexpected director-movie pairings. Get More »
First thing's first. "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones" is not "Paranormal Activity 5." That's a whole different project which, groan, is also still happening. In fact, "The Marked Ones" is not a continuation of the already fatigued franchise — at least not in the usual sense — but it's also not some bogus rip-off of the series, either. Rather, it's an early spin-off made with a Latino focus. Get More »
