Some are saying that this past's weekend box office winner, "Jack the Giant Slayer," was a flop because of it's unexpectedly low profit. And, hey, who's to say if $28 million dollars is something to scoff at? (Well, actually, mega-rich producers, that's who, in which case, they should know that we are more than happy to take the losses.)
Still, even if "Jack the Giant Slayer" doesn't turn out to be a cinematic classic, there are always mashups to give it some extra cache. And lucky for us (and Jack), someone laid the audio from the trailer for "Jack" over footage from "The Princess Bride." Who would've guessed that the voices of Nicholas Hoult, Ian McShane, and Ewan Macgregor would fit so seamlessly, played against the faces of Carey Elwes, Robin Wright, and Mandy Patinkin? Get More »
Everyone loves a good wedding: free booze, awkward speeches and creepy DJs — what more could you want? All too often, however, the invites don't live up to the day. (Seriously, if I open one more shimmering envelope and a sliver of cream-colored tissue paper falls out I'm gonna scream.) So when film buffs throw calligraphy and caution to the wind and opt instead for movie-themed wedding invitations, it's time to celebrate. Get More »
Have you ever wondered what Jack and Rose's baby would look like if the Titanic hadn't sunk — or, you know, she'd made room on the damn door — and they'd both survived to raise a family together?
Don't lie. You know you have.
We'll admit that we have, anyway, and with the magical (but MONSTER CREEPY) technology at morphthing.com, we were able to create composite photos of our favorite movie couples' offspring.
The future is terrifying amazing.
The 'Titanic' Baby
"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die."
Mandy Patinkin's oh-so-memorable, oft-repeated line from "The Princess Bride" is directed solely at Christopher Guest's Count Tyrone Rugen, but a few cinematically challenged passengers on a recent Qantas flight to New Zealand can't tell a Patinkin from a Taliban.
According to Stuff, Kiwi/film buff Wynand Mullins started a minor kerfuffle on his flight to Aukland when he wore a t-shirt with the quote on it, the "Prepare to die" part not sitting well with some in coach who hadn't seen Rob Reiner's 25-year-old cult classic. Get More »
We love to give away free stuff almost as much as you love to receive it. In fact, we love it so much, we're pretty much constantly handing out some Blu-ray or book or movie poster. So we certainly understand if you just can't keep up with all of our giveaways. Hey, trying to win free stuff all the time can be exhausting!
This Friday will kick off the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, and though our old Revolutionary War adversaries might be our allies now, that doesn't mean the U.S. of frickin' A. isn't ready to bring the thunder.
Using our powers of make-believe and fantasy, we've assembled athletic champions from the entirety of movie history to give us a clear advantage towards the race for Olympic glory in every sport of the XXX Olympiad. Get More »
A "Princess Bride" reunion is not inconceivable!
24 years after Rob Reiner's now-classic fairy tale first enchanted audiences, some of the key cast members have come together to share stories of one of the most popular movies of all time.
"Good Morning America" arranged the reunion as part of their Totally Awesome '80s series, with Dan Harris chatting with Cary Elwes (Westley), Robin Wright (Buttercup), Chris Sarandon (Prince Humperdinck), Wallace Shawn (Vizzini), Billy Crystal (Miracle Max) and Carol Kane (Valerie) about what they all consider to be one of the best experiences of their lives.

Tom Green can claim all he wants that he invented planking back in 1994. We all know the truth.
Obviously, it was Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze who kicked off the trend back in 1987 in "Dirty Dancing." And they weren't the only ones.
We've spotted planking in a number of recent movies from "The Smurfs" to "Green Lantern." Oh, and Edward Cullen? Yeah, he's been known to plank in a certain meadow here and there.
Look, we get that some of these characters may not have known what they were doing, but an accidental plank is still a plank, right?
We at NextMovie don't condone drinking to excess. No sir. Nuh-uh. Alcohol is bad, mmkay?
That said, while watching people get drunk in real life isn't always a barrel of laughs (ever been to a St. Patrick's Day parade?), watching people in movies get drunk can be downright hilarious.
They fall on their faces! They say and do crazy things! (Bless you, Will Ferrell, you are indeed going streaking.) They're far more entertaining -- and infinitely more clever -- than your buddy Joe after he's broken open a bottle of tequila. Get More »
We here at NextMovie are expecting the new comedy, "Your Highness" to be a big ...hit. This joint venture between Danny McBride, James Franco and Natalie Portman looks like the kind of bud picture that will definitely be packing a specific audience into the theaters. Okay, in case you haven't been catching all the subtle puns -- it's a stoner movie -- with dragons.
Finally! Of course, there's a long Hollywood tradition of fantasy characters who may have been stealing a puff between scenes. Well, today we're smoking them out. Here are nine fantasy characters who must be high... Get More »
