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 »
This week sees the release of Bryan Singer's "Jack the Giant Slayer," which has survived a long delay, conversion to 3-D, and a retitling (Jack was originally a "Giant Killer"), but now must face its biggest trial by fire: The Audience.
The rather old-fashioned children's adventure feel of "Jack" is going to feel rather old-hat in comparison to the flurry of fairy tale films that film-goers have been bludgeoned with in recent years, mostly because it doesn't offer much of an ironic or modernized spin on the fable.
Maybe that's a good thing?
Let's take a look back at some past films that really took our childhood favorites in edgier, sexier directions. Get More »
After all the talk of trampirism on the part of Kristen Stewart for her dalliance with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, when it came down to choosing Sanders or Stewart for the film's sequel, Universal knew where their bread was buttered.
In an interview with Indiewire to promote her all-nude, all-the-time performance in Walter Salles' "On the Road," controversial "Twilight" starlet Stewart confirmed that she will indeed headline the "Snow White" sequel, most likely titled "Snow White and the Off-White Wedding Gown." Get More »
As we established in our list of the 25 Best Movies of 2012, it was a pretty great year at the multiplexes.
But in what you are about to read below, well, there is no "good."
Some of these actually didn't do too badly in the box office and one might incite some rage from a certain fan army (sorry guys, but our whole staff agreed!), but either way, we want to know what you think. Read up on our 10 clunkers of 2012 and hit up the comments section below with your two cents. Get More »
The year 2012, or, as we like to call it, the beard 2012, is drawing to a close. Awards nominations are being handed out left and right, top 10 lists being written and superlative statements being made all around. It felt only right that we here at NextMovie draw up our own list, one honoring the best examples what we feel was 2012's most ubiquitous accessory: facial hair.
So here, it is, our salute to the greatest flavor savers, 'staches, soul patches and beards that graced the screen this year, broken down by month.
Liam Neeson in "The Grey"
We're not sure whether the beard makes the eyes or vice versa, but can we just say that we shiver in awe of their combined effect? Neeson's character in the film may have a way with killing wolves, but we're only human — and we are slayed. Get More »
"The Hobbit" hits theaters this Friday and besides all the hobbits, orcs, elves, humans, dragons and Gollums, there's also a group of sturdy folk who form the backbone of the movie: Dwarves.
This isn't the first time dwarves have been portrayed in film, of course — and it's not the first time that little people have been played on screen by regular-sized folks, either. But "The Hobbit," with its band of stout and heroic dwarven heroes, is undoubtedly one of the most prominent portrayals of little people in Hollywood's long and checkered history. Get More »
Chris Hemsworth worked the rugged look in every possible way this year: outdoors guy, Norse god, huntsman and, now, homemade soldier. His rippling muscles and blue eyes alone prove there's something in the Aussie water.
This week he's trading in his mighty "Thor" hammer for an assault rifle in "Red Dawn," keeping America safe from invading communist forces.
Sure, Chris' younger brother Liam enjoyed some time in the spotlight this year with '"The Hunger Games," but between "Snow White and the Huntsman," "The Cabin in the Woods," "The Avengers" and now "Red Dawn," the elder Hemsworth is the only one we want to cuddle with out in the wilderness.
See for yourself with Chris' Hot People Looking Hot gallery. Trust us, you'll forget all about the threat of the North Korean army after going through these pics.
The interwebs pretty much blew up with the inestimable rage of the Kristen Stewart faithful (up to and an including former "Panic Room" co-star Jodie Foster, who actually wrote an essay about it) after her ill-advised smooch session with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders was followed up with reports of her being dropped from the sequel... All the while he, a forty-something married father of two who was equally as involved, was expected to saddle right back up on his director's chair without consequence. "No fair!" cried the collective public.
Universal Pictures jumped in to put the kibosh on that potentially ugly rumor right away, declaring "any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false," but hasn't uttered a peep about the matter since the summer. Get More »
There's really not much room for debate here — Kristen Stewart is beautiful.
And she doesn't just have any kind of run-of-the-mill beauty. The "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Twilight Saga" heroine has that, I-just-rolled-outta-bed and I-never-wear-makeup thing down pat. Mix that with her adorably awkward personality, a major movie franchise and that super-hot boyfriend of hers and you have the recipe for Hollywood starlet perfection.
Well, that and a Hot People Looking Hot gallery of gorgeous photos courtesy of yours truly.
