Brad Pitt's Got 'So Many Ideas' for a 'World War Z' Sequel. Great.

"World War Z" was pretty much just a big ole' mess — it took several drafts to script, cost oodles more than it was supposed to, had to be retooled by outsiders and even then it still didn't make a ton of sense at times — but audiences threw half a billion dollars at it, so of course a sequel is in the works. That's a zombie-style no-brainer.

According to Brad Pitt, though, the pedal's not quite to the metal on "World War Z 2" just yet because he wants to make sure they've got a few things straightened out before they go full throttle on the second installment to the Zed Apocalypse ... ya know, unlike last time. Get More »

The 9 Dumbest Plot Points of Summer 2013

Man of Steel Warner Bros.

All told the movies of summer 2013 would have to get an A … for Average. Well, or maybe a B, for Blah. There were a few high points ("Iron Man Three," "The Conjuring," "This Is the End"), a few low points ("The Lone Ranger," "After Earth," "R.I.P.D."), and a whole mess that landed somewhere in-between.

What seemed to really come in abundance, though, in movies of varying degrees of quality, were head-scratching plot points, the things that made you go, "Hmmm … that was f**king stupid." Get More »

China Thinks the Sequel is 'Despicable'

Universal Universal

The story of China's film market is getting more and more intense (and, frankly, popcorn-worthy) to observe. The nation knows well that its market is uberinfluential right now — the second-biggest in the world behind the U.S., for now — and that big studios are pretty much at the mercy of their State Administration for Radio, Film and Television to allow their movies, especially those big-budget blockbusters, a chance at those coveted international ticket sales.

'Monsters University' Withstands the Box Office 'Heat'

Pixar Pixar

It was a close call, but in the end "Monsters University" edged out "The Heat" at the box office this weekend, as according to Film.com, Pixar's latest animated hit topped Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock's R-rated comedy by the score of $46.2 million to $40 million.

That's still an impressive debut for "The Heat," but the same cannot be said for fellow newcomer "White House Down," as Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx's action thriller stumbled to fourth place with a disappointing $26.6 million.

Overall, though, no fewer than five films cracked the $20 million mark, as moviegoers spread the wealth around to "World War Z" and "Man of Steel" as well. For a full look at the box office top ten, head to Film.com.

(Un)Shocking News: 'World War Z' Sequel Planned

BradPitt300Despite a troubled shoot, "World War Z" shocked the industry with a better than expected debut over the weekend. Which means the expected thing is happening next: there's a sequel in the works.

Brad Pitt optioned the rights to the hit novel, produced the movie and lent his A-list star-power to it in the lead role. He stuck through it despite a difficult production that included multiple reshoots (including a new ending), multiple script rewrites and the overall difficulty of delivering a zombie movie with a PG-13 rating. The budget ballooned past a reported $200 million, but the movie still smashed "Man of Steel" for the  number two spot over the weekend with $66 million at the domestic box office. Which means now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount and Pitt are moving forward with a sequel. Get More »
