Squigglenaut on Tumblr Squigglenaut on Tumblr

When it comes to Disney characters, we are always in the market for weirdly amazing transformations. Whether it's a Grumpy Cat meme collision with the House of Mouse or the line-up of pretty ladies getting slothified and given historically accurate wardrobing or even the animated villains getting a Broadway-esque spotlight, we are soooooo in. Always.

So, naturally, when we discovered that a gaggle of web artists are now making Wolverine as Disney Princesses a thing, we just had to share. Get More »

'Prisoners' Puts Box Office On Lockdown

Warner Bros. Warner Bros.

Hugh Jackman's new film "Prisoners" took no prisoners at the cineplex this weekend as the critically lauded drama took in $21.4 million to easily win the box office title according to Film.com.

Not that there was much competition. Other than returning champ "Insidious: Chapter 2," which earned $14.5 million in its second weekend of release, no film managed to even crack $10 million. The weekend's only other major new release, "Battle of the Year," turned out to be one of the duds of the year, earning just $5 million in its debut.

Next weekend should be a different story thanks to major new releases "Rush," "Don Jon" and "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2." For now, though, head over to Film.com for this weekend's full box office top ten.

'The Wolverine' Carves Up the Box Office

The Wolverine Fox

Hugh Jackman's "The Wolverine" was the only new major studio release of the weekend and as a result it easily won the box office according to Film.com, raking in an estimated $55 million.

That was more than enough to beat last week's champion, "The Conjuring," which slipped to second place despite holding strong with a solid $22.1 million in its second weekend of release. Otherwise, it was pretty much same old, same old at the cineplex, with family friendly fare like "Despicable Me 2," "Turbo" and "Grown Ups 2" rounding out the top five.

For a full look at the box office top ten, including figures for the acclaimed indie drama "Fruitvale Station," head to Film.com.

Supercut: Boy, Wolverine Sure Does Scream A Lot


As an actor, when you play the same character approximately 37,653 times (margin of error +/- 37,648), you're bound to give that character some of the same mannerisms over the course of its movie lifetime.

Hugh Jackman (and each movie's writer and director, I guess) decided that Wolverine likes to scream. A lot. Like, a lot a lot. As compiled by our compadres at Vulture, embedded is a supercut of Wolverine screaming and shouting and hollering and grunting, a 1:17 video of which I could only reach the :54 second mark without having to give my ears a one minute break.
