11 Classic Movies That Were Box Office Bombs

Dazed and Confused Gramercy Pictures

The high school burnout classic "Dazed and Confused" is one of the most fondly remembered movies of the early '90s. But did you know that when the movie was first released, it was like, a total flop, man? Bummer.

But here we are today celebrating the 20-year anniversary, giving it the love it so deserves. It turns out that "Dazed and Confused" is in pretty good company when it comes to now-classics that didn't get showered with box office love upon their initial release. Check it out, man. Get More »

The 15 Most Evil Movie Corporations

The East Fox Searchlight

WARNING: SPOILERS all up in the conference room.

Never trust an organized entity, especially if it has a 401K plan.

As this week's new thriller "The East" chronicles a former FBI agent's transition to a private job at a sinister intelligence agency, we thought we'd look back at the rich history of evil movie corporations and separate the maniacally, outrageously, inexcusably evil from the "Aw, that's cute, look at them trying to be evil" evil.

What the Apocalypse Looks Like: 1927-2013

Oblivion Universal

Apocalyptic and dystopian stories have always intrigued us. If societal structure was to break down, the void left behind would expose the basest of human impulses. And over the last century, movies have taken a sick sort of pleasure in showing us what the worst case scenario might look like, with ominous features of the future mirroring the most pressing concerns of the present.

Seeing as how Tom Cruise's new film "Oblivion" is opening in the not-too-distant-future (April 19), we're taking a look back at pessimistic looks forward. Get More »

50 Upcoming Movie Sequels (Yep, 50)

Army of Darkness Universal

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »

The 15 Best Death Scenes in Movies

The new horror anthology "The ABCs of Death" wants to give gorehounds what they want in alphabetical order by representing each of their 26 segments with a letter. That's fine with us, since we always have plenty of death scenes organized with the Dewey Decimal System, and here are 15 of the most memorable, bloody, and enjoyable ones in the bunch.

Oh yeah, um, spoilers.

Taketoki Washizu in 'Throne of Blood' (1957)

'A' is for 'Arrows'
In one of Akira Kurosawa's many samurai epics with star/badass supreme Toshiro Mifune, the two of them created the kind of arrow-related death that "Lord of the Rings" elf Legolas must dream about at night. By the time this Macbeth stand-in is done for he's got more wood in him than Jenna Jameson and resembles a stoned porcupine. Sayonara, sucker!

Are the 'Blade Runner' and 'Alien' Universes Entwined?


Oh Marvel, what hath thou wrought? Now that their shared universe of superheroes has raked in mad cheddar at the global box office, everyone is clamoring to create their own shared movieverse, be it with DC Comics characters or Tom Clancy novels.

In another example of movie synergy, Collider is reporting that there is an aster Egg on the new "Prometheus" Bu-ray which ties the "Alien" prequel to Ridley Scott's other sci-fi masterpiece "Blade Runner," albeit pretty flimsily. Get More »

Katy Perry Dreams of Being a Replicant in 'Blade Runner 2'

Believe it or not, Katy Perry is a total sci-fi chick.

During our interview with the pop star for her upcoming movie, "Katy Perry: Part of Me," we asked her what would be a fantasy gig were she to dip her toes into deeper acting waters. She surprised (and impressed) us with a dream role that doesn't involve donning a furry costume or gracing a certain bathing suit and tall boots. In fact, her pick would be a bit more, well, robotic.
